"Pall is one of the greatest hog cholera danger seasons, second only to the peak outbreak season in May and June." the American Foundation for Animal Health reports. To guard against fall cholera lo&ses the Foundation suggested that farmers take the following precautions In September and Octo-** her: 1) Hav« all pigs vaccinated before the outbreak occurs, ax there is no euro for cholera one* It starts In > herd. a> Keep neighbor!, farm sales- m»n, trucks and wagons out of hot lot*. It lakes only a drop of llv« virus to spread hog cholera to an entire herd. 3) Have all pigs checked over by th« veterinarian to determine whether they ar« In proper condition, Jgtore vaccination. Pigs which are w&wested with intestinal parasites, or recovering from flu, or suffering from enteritis or other diseases should b« put in proper condition befor* given cholera Immunization. «) If hogs do weaken and show ligns of fever, poor appetite, or wobbly gait, auspect cholera and lake preventive steps immediately to try to protect the reft, of the herd. Neighbors -should also te warned if an outbreak stavtx. so they can protect their own iiogs. "With hogs worth real money thli fall, it's an especially risky gamble for the farmer to take chancei on hog cholera ' this sea- ion," Foundation authorities said. H.D. CLUB MEMOS * Mra. O«rtn<le B.

But nutritionists take a dim view of this possibility — for many reason*. The beat Insurance for adequate nutrition U a diet that includes variety of nourishing foods. Experi- menta have shown that animals do not thrive so well on carefully prt-' pared synthetic rations of pure nutrients as on foods that provide these nutrients. Obviously, foods have unknown values lacking in the synthetic ration*. Some .forty nutrients are known, but others of importance may be discovered in the future. Vitamin fl-12 as a nutrient was discovered only recently but already is proving beneficial in treating pernicious anemia in human beings and stepping up growth in baby pigs, chickens and other young animals. Scientists have known for years that some substance in liver was effective In pernicious anemia, but only lately have they identified the new B vitamin In which Hver is rich. Each discovery of a nutrient emphasizes the Importance of eating a variety of foods to be sure of both known and unknown nutrients. Other reason why substitutes for food are unlikely? Shakespeare gave one answer when he wrote: "Now good digestion wait-on appetite." "What "pill" could have the appetite appeal or give the eating enjoyment of a good meal? Then, too, 1 the body's digestive mechanism U geared to the natural bulk of food. Print from Bag* The sturdy, soft cotton fabric of many flour and feed bags has been used lor years by economical rural homemakers for making everything from aprons and children's clothing lo bedspreads, draperies and tea towels. The first step in making this material usable is to remove the black lettering that labeled the bag. Homemakers sometimes make the mistake of using too strong a bleach for the purpose of bleaching for too long a time, which weakens the fabric. Textile specialist* have found the following different methods to successfully remove the black ink: 1. Scrub bags with hot water and laundry soap. This often removes nearly all the ink. The rest usually disappears If bags are boiled In soapy water for half an hour and rinsed. A mild chlorine bleach may be necessary to lake out the last traces. If water is very hard, the "built" synthetic detergents sold for general laundry use may be used. I.
