"Are you concerned about your own personal health and that of your neighbor? Or, in /act, of your Whole community? If not, you cannot expect a healthful community," Mrs. Gertrude B. Holiman and Keith J. Bilbrcy. county Extension agents, said today, in pointing up the significance of the health conference. Gcort health and high health standards are everybody's business. In many communities can be seen health hazards—tin can dumps, unscreened homes, open wells, open toilets, cave-less disposal of garbage, gfck cattle, and the like. The responsibility of seeing that these hazards do not exist belongs to the people, the agent* stressed. It takes an educational program on the part of the people; Because many problems cnimol be corrected by medical authorities alone, thiA mcetiips ',vill give rural people a chance to find out what they can do—both as individuals and in groups. •As rural people, we must learn now to Discover our health problems, and then organize on a community ana county basis to correct and eliminate hazards within our own localities." they emphasized. Speaker.- from other states will tell hou - similar problems have bce:i Kclyen in similar situations. A larye i.umber of doctors from throu^hovil Arkaosa.s will be on hand to discuss Individual problems. Spon-sor of the program Is the Arkansas Medical Society.

Upon hatching, the worm or larvae stage does the damage by eating :he Inside of squares, leaving a hole approximately the slw of a match stick, when th^ worm gets large enough to be used for fish bait It burrows into "the ground ana turns into a miller and migrate: north. Your fields are not reln- fected by the same worms. Softball Tournament The 4-H basketball tournamen Is.-an annual affair of 17 year, standing.

If the cost of producing tomatoes in ytur home garden Is about 60 cents a bushel n quart of canned tomatoes In your- win cost about 5 cents plus average cost of processing. The'Missouri Agricultural Extension canning budget suggests 20 to 30 quarts of tomatoes per person. Total cost would be SI to $1.50 per person, according to this study. Tomatoes are valued most for their vitamin C—ascorbic acid. They are not as rich In vitamin C ss citrus fruit but because of thetr availability and the quantity eaten— they are an important source. Cook- Ing, canning and storing destroys some, but not much of the vitamin O. Tomatoes also furnish generous o mounts of other needed plant foods. Tomatoes are excellent for reducing diets. They are low In cal- orics, high in volume and have unlimited possibilities for variety In meals. Missouri Soil District Men Plan Meeting Thr.
