10-Algona la.) Upper Des Moinei Tuesday, Feb. 13, 1968 FARM PAGE DEVELOPMENTS I FROMDEVALOIS | *• . A Taking the State Pesticide Test? We have had many questions concerning this.

Answer - Iowa State University entomologists say if it is warm enough for you, if s warm enough for the cattle. You may have trouble with sprayers or nozzles freezing up, but the cattle should take the cold weather fine. MEMOS FROM MARGARET MONEY-WISE WAYS WITH FOOD Most homemakers welcome pointers which help them get better buys for their money. Here axe a few ideas. Plan , in advance, preferably with a pencil and paper. Meats take the largest share of the food dollars- the "less tender" cuts of meat are usually less expensive and contain just as much food value as the more costly items. If properly prepared, they are flavorful and good. Examples are pot roasts, stews and meat loaf. Prepare foods to conserve food value and for greatest appetite appeal — for example — — prepare raw and cooked vegetables close to time of serving. - cook vegetables tightly covered in as small amount of water as possible, cooking only until tender. - in general, cook high protein foods such as mean, poultry, eggs and cheese at medium or low temperatures. DID YOU HAVE A GOOD BREAKFAST TODAY? If you did, you're much less likely to overeat at lunch. Studies show that weight reduction is much easier to manage when a morning meal is included. A good breakfast pattern always includes a fruit or juice — citrus fruit is best, cereal or egg and bacon, toast and milk, cocoa or coffee. If you are a "breakfast skipper" and this sounds like too much breakfast, start easy with one or two of the foods listed and gradually "work up" to a better breakfast. Try it, it will pay off. PIIIIIIIIUIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMIIIJ! | RAMBLINGS | | FROM RUTH I ttiimiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiniiNi Would your club or organization like to know more about 4-H? What it is really all about? Is it just Agriculture and Home Economics — or something more? Why do some young people feel it is worth taking part in for eight or nine years? If you are interested, why not invite some of the county officers or myself to talk to your group? The county officers that attended the Area Conference in Spencer came home with the realization that there is a need to show others what 4-H is all about. They are willing to do their part in spreading the word, so why not give them a chance? * * * Have you heard about JETS? Those letters stand for Junior Engineering Technical Society. JETS is an organization for older teens (senior high or junior college level) who are interested in science and would like to spend some time outside school hours developing their knowledge and skills through scientific projects. The College of Engineering of Iowa State University, through its Engineering Extension Service, is the coordinating group for JETS, like the Cooperative Extension Service is for 4-H. However, the Cooperative Extension Service is trying to create an interest in JETS, 4-H'ers or science club members interested in JETS can keep their own group affiliation while carrying out JETS projects and receiving JETS JOURNAL and other JETS material. Any science teacher or student who would like more information about JETS can contact me or write Professor Marvin Gould, Coordinator, JETS of Iowa, Engineering Extension, 110 Marston Hall, Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa 50010.
