Southwestern >Bell Workers Wont Raise ST. LOUIS, Ann, 4 (UP)— Employees of the Soutliwestern Bell Telephone Company are asking for a wage increase of 17 and a half cents an hour. Some 33,000 employes in live stales are involved. They contend that the living costs in their states are above the average for the nation.

Food Specialist Discusses Canning With Local Women Miss Blanche Hanrtolpli, slate HB- slslant .specialist in foods and nu- tritions, visited the Mississippi County Home Demonstration Club women recently to discuss problems in running. At Lcachvlllc Miss Randolph showed the members tha (lye Is an effective way to peel peaches. She used two teaspoons of lye and one millon of water, A few peaches nl a time were dropped Into the lye solution for one minute an tlthen dipped into four pans of cold water. The peaches were peeled like tomatoes, halved and the seed taken out, and canned in halves in syrup. The syrup is mart? by dissolving one cup sugar in two cups boiling water. Miss Randolph cautioned food prraeiTittlrin leaders that "we arc using synthetic materials and have to treat them differently. Formerly we dipped Ihe jar rubbers Into hot water and stretched them. The synthetic rubber rings must be treated differently to prevent odor from them." She advised a solution of one quail water and one toaspuonfnl soda, boiling Jni- rings in this solu lion lor ten minutes. Formeily canners were advised lo put about it cup of water In the steam pressure cooker, now they arc wilted to have two or three, covering the iMltom of the cooker. Another recommendation is to leave a head space of from 1 1-2 to 1 Inch nt the top of the Jnr Jor expansion, Miss Randolph pointed out. Anyone wishing bulletins on Canning, Brining, etc. may secure Ihem from Ihe Extension Agent's office. F. S. AJflews Mrs. R. L. Mosloy of Route One niythcvlllc, recently put up -17 quarts of pickles. 01 quarts of fruit, ')!> (|iinrt.s of vegetables, and H pints' of jelly. Many F.-irtn Security families have planted fall gardens since the recent rains and arc planting late potatoes. Realizing the necessity of producing and conserving fooil, these families are making every effort to srow as much food this fall as possible. A determined effort is also being made to grow various winter feed crops, since such seed as Sudan and millet for fall hay crops arc expected to be difficult to buy. We must rely on soy beans which will, if planted In the next few- days, produce a crop of hay. Varieties of sorghum suitable for hay are being sown by PSA families and in some Instances soy benns Inter-sowed with sorghum are being planted. • .;, Hay varieties of beans, Lorwl.i, and Brown Virginia are scarce and, in many instances, unavailable. As a substitute FSA Supervisors are en-, comaginR the use of oil varieties • which arc not as desirable but will produce- some good feed.

Save Vegetables For Winter Use Demonstration Agent Gives Suggestions On Preservation With every day of hot, dry weather decreasing Hie supply of fresh vegetables from Mississippi County Victory gardens, II becomes increasingly important for hoincmak- PI-S to salvage all they can for winter meals. Miss Cora Lee Coleman, County Home Demonstration Agent, said this week. Tomatoes, which are an excellent source of vitamin C, should be processed In a liot water bath calmer. Sudi starchy vegetables as lima benns, pens, and corn should be panned Immediately after harvest- Ing. Corn rind lima beans can be canned together as succotash, and corn, Jima beans, okra, and tomatoes can be combined ris soup mixtures. A pressure cooker must bi> used for all of these vegetables, tin* home demonstration agent empha- Bl/ort. Canning is only one way to preserve, according ( 0 Mis., Coleman. Sqsash, okra, green lima beans and corn can be kept excellently bv cpitck-frcczing (hem if a rroracr- locker unit is available. Okra. corn, lima beans, aiirj onions can be dried. They are prepared as for cooking, then blanched In boiling water, or bcllei sliil steamed before drying. They arc started at a low temperature, then the heat is Increased. Sun dried by some other source of heat. If the oven is used, the oven door should be left open lo allow circulation of air, a factor just "as lni|>orlaia as temperature in dry- Ing. Th c pilot light on a gas stove can be used by pulling the metal cover down over the light ami placing tlic vegetables on a cloth spread over a wire rnc k placed on (be cover. Vegetables must be bone dry to keep. Miss Coleman recommended that vine dried peas and beans be treated tor weevils before storing. Cucumbers, green tomatoes for pickles and relishes, green peppers, okrn, corn, and onions con be brined if there Is a COD! cellar or basement where the product can "be stored. Vegetables to be brined, Miss Coleman said, should be washed, th c inedible parts removed, and the product, usually left whole. The prepared vegetable is then weighed, packed Into stone jars, and covered with a 10 to 15 per •cnt brine. Salt must be added to ;cep up thc original strength of the brine, and the scum must be kepi -emovecl, sh e added. Corn can be preserved by salting. After It Is precooked on the cob long enough to set the milk, the corn is cut from the cob and weighed, one part of salt is added to each three parts of corn, 'this Is mixed well imrt packed into either stone or glass jars. The brine !should cover ttic vegetable. After a few days, the home demonstration agent explained, the container must Je'sealed. The corn, site said, must >e soaked to remove the salt before it is cooked. Farm Woman's Column Though whipping cream Is still far short, homemade Ice cream and similar fromi desserts may be features of family meals this summer if the cook knows how to use then cream or milk in mixtures that will freeze successfully, such frox- en desserts may not be so rich or quite so smooth as those of prewar days, made largely ot whipping cream, but they can be refrcshim; and delicious. The important secret of smnnlh- ncss in a dessert is ke->pUm the ice crystals small. The larger the crystals, the rougher and Icier Ihe product. The water in the mixture is what freezes and form* the- iTyslnls, so smoothness clepi'T-ds on distributing thc water In i>"pavatc fine particles. Air bubbles whipped In help to do this, as doe'; the fat in the cream and thickeners like gelatin, eggs, flour or corn siarch Fi-oncu custard Is a good choice this summer when eggs ,trc plentiful. The egg yolks help thicken the mixture and the stiffly bealcn whites add aid bubbles just as whipped cream does. The Experiment Station offers several tips for making mixtures that will freeze smoothly in refrigerator trays. When more thin cream is used, more thickeners :»needed. To keep crystals small ihe mixture may b c taken from thc refrigerator when partly trozcn whipped, and then returned for final freezing, napid freezing i'lso helps keep the mixture smooth, so the freezing compartment of the refrigerator should have as little frost on it as possible and the gage should be set for a low temperature. Most housewives have discovered that the cream at the very lop of the bottle of milk is thick enough to whip. Just one cup of this cream is enough for a vanilla ice cream mixture to serve six or eight people, according to thc Experiment Station. Ingredients an' one and one-fourth cups milk; on c cup cream whipped; one-hall cup sugar; two eggs; one teaspoon gelatin; one teaspoon vanilla. Mix milk, sugar, egg yolks and gelatin. Cook to custard and cool. - Add vanilla. Whip egg whites and mix with custard. Place mixture in freezing lra v and freeze to a slush. Remove tray from refrigerator, bent in whipped cream, return to finish freezing. and will continue through August Final games will be played at the Countv 4-H Rally, Each night an admission of lOc Is being charged and the proceeds will be used in paying expenses and lo bu v trophies for tlie final county winners.

Owens' of' Lost Cull Nonlayers During Summer And Save Feed Mississippi County poultry producers can keep their flocks at a SO per cent summer egg production level by proper feeding and management and by culling nonlayers now. accordln gto Cora Lee Coleman, county home demonstration agent. Hens out of production at the present time, she said, will not lay enough eggs to make a suitable profit ne.xl year. Records show, she ndried that hens that stop laying before Sept. 1 are usually poor layers the next year, while hens thai (!o not stop laying until after Stpl. arc worth keeping an additional year. Reasons for culling liens during (lie summer rather than waiting unlll fall, she listed as follows: (I) Prices arc usually higher for fowls now than in October and November. (2) It Is an easy and simple problem now and a difficult one In the fall. c» Th n Iced bill is reduced without affecting egg production, and H> Loss by death is reduced. Feed, Miss Coleman reminded, is still n scarce and easily Hem and not to be wasted on popr layers. A hundred pounds of feed fed to bens laying 50 per cent will produce nearly 20 dozen eggs, while Ihe same amount fed to hens lay- ma only 30 per cent will produce about 12 dozen eggs. Hens to remove now and to keep removing until Sept. 15, the home demonstration agent advised producers, arc easy to tell by Ihcir dry, shriveled comb and ' yellow shanks and beak, in addition, the nonlayers arc Usually molting, and Generally have small capacity at the rear, or are carrying excess fat over the abdomen. In World War I an infantry di- 'Ision retiuired 153 motor vehicles and 4,400 horses. In this war, however, a division requires 3,500 vehicles of 160 different types, but no icrscs at all.

Farmers are entitled to enough lumber to make necessary repairs to all farm buildings and are allowed $1000 for new construction, only ?200 of which may be used on dwellings. Farmers can buy up to 300 ft. of lumber during the months of August, Sept. and Oct. without going to the County War Board but if their requirements are more than 300 ft. for these three months application on form FL-200 must be made and filed in the AAA Office. We have these forms in our office and will help you fill them out. If the lumber is for an essential use as per instructions given the County War Board they will issue to you a Farmers Lumber Certificate. NO BUILDING MATERIALS EXCEPT LUMBER ARE RESTRICTED BY THIS ORDER. We can sell you cement, roofing, paint, insulation, Sheetrock, windows, doors, moulding, Stonewall Asbestos Board and many other items too numerous to mention. , Lumber is one of the most critical of war materials at this particular time. We hope we will hove enough lumber to take care of your most essential needs. If we do not it will be because of necessary government restrictions due to the war. E. C. ROBINSON LUMBER CO.
