HDVNotes THE OTTAWA HERALD Wednesday, March tt, UN How To "Move 59 Furniture Without Getting An Aching Back Rosemary Crist gave the les- at the Fairmount Unit meeting. She demonstrated a good way to try various arrangements without the actual moving of heavy furniture. First, draw to scale the floor plan of the room to be considered, showing windows, doors and built-ins. Second, make to scale cutouts of all pieces of furniture to be used. Now you're ready to place these cutouts in many different patterns until the desired arrangement is found. Surprise! No Tired Backs.

Understanding stages of fam- If You're Interested In Meat You'll Profit By This Meet Don By DON BROWN Agricultural Agent A meeting on meat will be presented for the public at 1:30 p.m. on Monday, March 25, in the Masonic Hall. Your extension agents feel that this meeting will be of value to persons who purchase freezer meat, as well as those buying retail cuts in their favorite store. Philip Weiner extension specialist in meats, will present a meat cutting demonstration, assisted by Ken Boughton of the State Board of Agriculture, and by your agents. Weiner will cut a hind quarter of beef and point out the things to look for in buying beef. He will show how to identify various cuts and give suggested methods of cooking. Once again the public is invited to this demonstration. It's designed for those who use their own beef as well as those who purchase it either in quantity, or by the cut. I'm sure that the men will enjoy this demonstration also. I have received a notice that there is an opening for part time farm enumerators to do some agricultural statistics survey work. One person will be employed in Franklin County. Please contact my office for details. This year's annual agriculture engineering day program at Kansas State University in Manhattan is scheduled for April 9. The event will be devoted'to farm feed handling systems and wil combine exhibits inside and out aide of Ahearn Fieldhouse with an educational program. A special feature this year wil be an afternoon program devotee to sewage disposal and sanita tion. There will be talks on la goons for farm livestock, equip ment for handling liquids am self-cleaning floors for swine. The morning program is to be devoted to a panel discussion and hay wafering. As in previous years, K-Stai igricultural engineers are planning and organizing full • scale mechanized systems for beef, lairy and swine producers, us- ng systems which are commer- ially available. The displays and exhibits will be opened to the public at 8 a.m., and the morning program will begin at 10. Last year more than 60 exhibitors displayed $250,000 worth of silo unloaders, bunk feeding wagons, augers, elevators, and processing, mixing and metering equipment. G. E. Fairbanks, who is in charge of arrangements, predicts this year's show will be as large as last year's. The cool season grasses, Kentucky bluegrass, perennial rye and Fescue, may be planted this spring as soon as the ground can be worked. Bluegrass should be planted very early in the spring so a stand can be established before weeds become a problem. Perennial rye and fescue require only a third as long as bluegrass to become established and thus are less susceptible to weed competition. Three annual fertilizations are recommended for bluegrass, perennial rye and fescue lawns. The first should be applied early in the spring, the second in late spring and the third in the fall. Bermuda and zoysia lawns should be fertilized in May, June and August. The application rate is the same for all the grasses: one pound of elemental nitrogen at each application per 1,000 square feet of lawn. It is important to soak the lawn immediately after fertilizing it. This dissolves fertilizer material into the soil and keeps it from burning the grass. Good Year In Home Building WASHINGTON (AP) - Despite some gloomy predictions when President Kennedy signed his order four months ago today banning discrimination in federally financed housing, the homebuilding industry appears headed for another prosperous year. It's still too early for a detailed analysis of the effects of the order, but early indications are that it did little to slow the pace of home building. In February, construction began on 86,500 private housing units. On a seasonally adjusted basis, this was 4 per cent above January and 11 per cent ahead of February 1962. There is no indication yet of any extensive flight from use of financing by the Federal Housing and Veterans Administrations to conventional methods. Loan applications for the FHA and applications for VA appraisals were down slightly in Febru- ary compared with the same month last year, but officials said other factors than the housing order are involved in the decrease. Total FHA loan applications are up 7 per cent over February 1962. A Couple Of Harveys DOTHAN, Ala, (AP) - Dothan police were taken aback when the man asked them to keep an eye for two rabbits more than 6 feet tall. W. D. Williams explained Tuesday that they were stuffed rabbits and someone had stolen them. Pre-emergent herbicides for the control of crabgrass are avail able in the form of granules, pel lets, powders or combinations and emulsifiable concentrations. The dry material may be applied with a fertilizer applicator and the li quid forms with a sprayer. In either case, care must be taken to insure even coverage. What are the best pre-emergen weedicides for lawn weeds? Dacthal, zytron, calcium arse nate, arsenate of lead - arsenous oxide and bandane are weedi cides suggested. None are trad names but are materials sold un der trade names. They are usec on both grassy and broat leaf weeds and should be appliec at the rates listed on the labels To be effective they must be ap plied early before any weed seed minate. ily development and appreciation. 2. Development of an appreciation can foster family development. 3. Make adjustments in housing to meet family needs. The unit voted to contribute to the Heart and Cancer funds and discussed the community project for this year. St. Patrick decorations were carried out in the refreshments and napkins. Besides the hostess 10 members and six guests were present. Rock Creek—"Plan ahead for retirement. A good house should provide for all phases of the life cycle and should take into consideration the comfort, safety, and ease of living for members of the family when they reach retirement as Well as housing for the present." Mrs. Stuart Humphreys offered these ideas in the lesson on "Housing for the Life Span." Thirteen members answered roll call on "a built-in convenience I' like to move with me." Mrs. Gerald Good became a member. Mrs. Raymond Gillette was hostess with Mrs. Charles Schoonover assisting. The next meeting will be April 8 at the home of Mrs. 0. L. Breckenridge. Centropolis — Met with Mrs. Ludell Neilson. Mrs. Marion Williams gave the lesson on "Housing for the Life Span." Members discussed changes that could be made to make convenient work areas. Roll call was "what our medicine chest contains." Ten members and one guest, Mrs. Charles Crable, and daugh ters were present. Eight members have been taking the Civil Defense lessons given in Pomona by Franklin County health offi cials. Mrs. Floretta Steward told about the district meeting to be at Topeka. The next meeting wffl be April 10 with Mrs. Harold Simmons. WycoCI - Mrs. Avis Powell wt» hostess to 11 members who answered roll with "house cleaning hints." In presenting the lesson on furniture arrangement, Rosemary Crist pointed out these three basic principles: (1) Place large pieces of furniture parallel to the wall of the room; (2) Keep traffic lanes open; (3) Place related pieces together. Mrs. Powell displayed a hand- quilted baby crib quilt which she and some of the members made. Each member is to bring to the next meeting two dozen homemade cookies to fill boxes for the senior citizens. The next meeting will be April 10 with Mrs. Peggy Bush, and roll call will be on international relations. The lesson will be on health insurance.
