Still others ask for help because they , find themselves In a bewildering new situation or for various rca- . To get the most out of the dollars a family has to spend will. require careful Ihought, attention, and cooperation of the family, the home demonstration agent ixjint- ed out. "The first thing to do if •you wish to stretch, your dollars is to make a financial plan." Offers Deflnlle Filiern .'• To (lie question of what n plan is, the agent answered that It, is a pattern or guide, or what a family wishes to do in the future. The farm and home financial plan is the blufprlin laid out lo guid<; family spending. She stated thai th e ' purpose of a plan is to help families; no matter whether the income is small or large, the yeii- a good or bad one, n plan Is needed. The entire family should help make the plan, she said, because all are interested in the results. Some members will tnkc much more responsibility than others for certain parts of the plan, but one made by the funn family as ft whole gives all members a feeling of ownership, confidence in the decisions, and nn interest in seeing that the various parts are accomplished. "Every family should really have two plans," she said, "first, the long-time plan to . include goals for the farm, home, and family for a period of several years: and second, the short-time, or annual plan for operating the farm and guiding tile family spending toward the long-time plan."

He pointed out that the recent rise In feed prices, Including protein feed';. makes It more important than ever to do a good culling job In the interest of efficient egg production.

Mold and yeast, the main causes of spoilage, ar e easily killed hy boiling temperatures, the home demonstration agent point out. Both . are often found in products canned -by the open-kettle method. \Vhiio -boiling the food in an open kettle .destroys the mold nnd yeast, more ..may get into the food while it is •being packed, she pointed out. For - this reason the fruits or tomatoes . ; should be heated in a hot water bath after they nre packed, she •said. These organisms are found in the air and on the skins of products and both require air moisture and a moderate amount of heat for growth. Fruit packed cold, covered with hot sirup, and processed may mold and ferment If processing times lor hot products packed in hot jars ar e used, the home demonstration agent explained, pointing out that such processing time is not long enough to reach needed temperature. Similarly, if processing times arc decreased, the temperature within the Jar may not get high enough to kill moid and yeast, she cautioned.
