Buying Expert Here April 17 The Herald has received several suggestions -for a headline for this column by Rosemary Crist,. Franklin County home economics agent. But we're holding it open for another week to permit others to participate. What's wanted is a small head, such as Brown's Bylines, to go over the main headline. Send your suggestions to The Herald—The Editor. By ROSEMARY CRIST Home Economics Agent The public extension demonstration which had to be postponed last week will be April 17.

Are your wool blankets beginning to 1 o o k dingy after several seasons of cleaning? Rosemary If the answer is "yes," you'll be interested in a new Extension HDV Notes Didn't Cost Them To Remodel After learning "how to move furniture without getting the backaache" last month, a mass remodeling program was carried out "without any expense" as each member of the unit made a floor plan of her house as it is and one as she would like it to be. The lesson, "Housing for the Life Span," was given by Mrs. Ray Talbott at the home of Mrs. Everett Stark, with Mrs. Don Gorton as assisting hostess. Dessert and coffee were served to 14' members and one guest, Mrs. Clarence Higdon. Mrs. Robert Wiggins became a new member. The club voted to contribute to the Smurthwaite House and the Scholarship Fund. Mrs. Allen Unruh reported, that six members attended the spring tea at which the club received the gold seal. The president, Mrs. Charles Talbott, reported six members helped on the Heart Fund Drive and collected $28. The Unit voted to help the Boy's Club for its community project this year. Everyone was reminded to plan to attend the district meeting at Topeka May 2 during Home Demonstration Unit Week. It was decided to have a potluck dinner at the regular May meeting at the home of Mrs, Howard Smith. Mrs. Newt Brown won the mystery gift. The next meeting will be with Mrs. Don Gorton with the lesson on health insurance. Richmond — Mrs. Ralph Ar- ringtpn gave the lesson on health insurance at her home. Mrs. Fred Kuiken conducted games. There were eight members present, The next meeting will be at the home of Mrs. Kuiken with a picnic dinner in the backyard. leaflet which I have on hand. It tells the homemaker how to brighten wool blankets by laundering them at home. The title of the publication is "Laundering a Wool Blanket." It was authored by Ethel Self, Extension home management specialist at Kansas State University. The leaflet describes* several correct methods of laundering blankets in a conventional or an automatic washer. It also gives instructions for. reconditioning a shrunken blanket, for washing an electric wool blanket and for treating the fluffy, clean- blankets against clothes moth damage. Searching foi something different as a main dish for a special spring dinner? Lamb, any one of numerous cuts, could be the answer. I have noticed lamb in several forms in local stores recently. Leg of lamb, sirloin chops, loin roast and chops, rib roast and chops, shoulder and breast are some of the lamb cuts from which to choose. The leg is one of the most desirable cuts for roasting by dry heat. It contains more lean in proportion to bone and fat than any other cut. Sirloin chops are comparable to sirloin steak in beef. Pan-fry or broil these tender chops. Buy them at least one inch thick for a tender and juicy chop. The loin contains T-shaped bone that correspond to the porterhouse, T-bone and club steaks of the beef. These cuts are always tender and juicy. The loin usually sells for a higher price than any other cut., The rib may be boned and rolled or it may be roasted as a standing rib roast. One of the most economical lamb cuts is the shoulder because of the high per cent of edible meat. Chops may be cut from the arm, the blade or the rolled shoulder roast. The cushion shoulder, the shoulder with the bone removed and left flat, may be stuffed and skewered, or rolled, to roast. The breast, a narrow strip of meat with the breastbone, and the ends of 12 ribs, corresponds to the short plate and brisket of beef. It should be cooked with moist heat. There comes a time, even with the best daily and weekly care using a vacuum cleaner, when carpeting needs a special cleaning to brighten the surface and remove an accumulation of soil that is not picked up by sweeping or brushing. Either a drycleaning or wet method can be used for this special cleaning. If you choose the wet method, remember never to use soap, ammonia, washing soda or any strong household cleaning agent. Use a neutral detergent. To mix your own carpet shampoo, for a 9 by 12-foot rug, mix one gallon of water, one level cup of neutral detergent, three tablespoons of denatured or rubbing alcohol. Use the electric mixer to whip the solution into a heavy cream consistency. Work this creamy detergent into the pile of the rug. Then rinse off by using a cloth dampened with soft water to remove the deter- gent. This completes a thorough cleaning job. For a small rug, mix one cup water, one level tablespoon neu- jal detergent and one-half teaspoon of denatured or- rubbing alcohol. You may choose to buy one of the commercial carpet shampoos on the market.

Chanute firemen pumped 15 feet of water from the cistern to recover the body. The boy's parents are Mr. and Mrs. Robert Fullerton. By HILL COLVIN The Manhattan Mercury Written lor The Associated Press MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -It was only a little more than a decade ago that "Tuttle Creek" was a nasty word in many places hereabouts and there was considerable doubt as to whether the major flood control facility on the Blue River ever would be built. A Kansas congressman had been defeated because of his stand for Tuttle Creek and he had been replaced by an anti- dam man. The "Blue Valley Belles," a group of women protesting the construction of the dam, were riding high. It was a colorful period, to say the least, in the stormy history of the structure that had been termed a major key of flood protection in the Kaw River Basin when Tuttle Creek was first authorized by Congress in 1938 as part of the Pick-Sloan plan. But the disruption caused by the resistance in the early '50s proved to be only temporary, lime and the relocation of many of the stronger opponents to distant places have removed virtually all signs of resistance. Practically all the talk you hear in these parts now is what an asset Tuttle Creek is going to be. There already have been some indications. Even with the reservoir some 30 feet below conservation pool level last summer hundreds of motorists made their way to Tuttle Creek each weekend. Nearly 400 boats were counted on the lake one Sunday last summer. Add to this the hordes of sightsteers who simply want to view the project and you find that, according to a Corps of Engineers count, nearly 700,000 persons came to Tuttle Creek for one Change Now to The GAS That doesn't "Use - up" so fast Ottawa Skelgas John Martin, Mgr. 505 N.

Tuttle Creek will get its first real test as a tourist attraction his season and even some of hose who were inclined to pooh- pooh it as a first class sportsmen's magnet a few years ago are ready to predict it will pull ar more than the million visitors wedicted by Army Engineers for he first full year of operation. Prematurely warm days this spring are already giving an in dication of the attraction of Tutle Creek with its 15,000 surface acres of water, with boats of all lescriptions entering the water rom the three launching sites now in operation. These are Spillway Park on the east side of the reservoir just above the dam structure; Fancy Creek near the west side; and East Randolph ust across the lake on K16 east of Fancy Creek. Eventually there will be more public use areas at which x>ats may be launched in addi- :ion to the pending areas below he dam where nearly 60 acres of water attract many boats and swimmers. An official dedication of Tuttle Creek Reservoir is scheduled for Tune 1. In addition to the dedication event, an area committee s planning two days of water shows, including water skiing, soil and motor boat races and a contest to select Miss Tuttle reek of 1963. Built at a cost of slightly more han $80 million, Tuttle Creek passed its test as a flood control structure in the spring of 1060, more than two years before it was completed, when it held back rain and snow-melt runoff that would have cost millions of dollars in damages to downstream areas. •'• Its conservation pool is a ready source of water for those same downstream areas should a drought reduce flows in the Kansas River to dangerously low level. THE OTTAWA HERALD . |f Wednesday, April 10, l> FARM A Troctoi? TIRE SPECIAL $940 Million For Grain Diversion WASHINGTON (AP)-The estimated 1,247,906 farmers who signed agreements to divert all or part of their feed grain land to non-crop use this year stand to collect an average of $378 each from the government. Total payments may be about $940 million or nearly $100 million more than for the 1962 program. Purpose of the program is to hold down production until surpluses can be eliminated. Texas leads the states in prospective participation this year. It will idle 2,594,033 acres of its 12,295,487 acres of feed grain land. Iowa shows a signup of 2,469 054 out of 13,516,992. Nebraska is third with 1,927,013 out of 9,880,713 acres. Kansas is fourth with 1,788,923 out of 9,467,217.

The tractor driven generator is the most popular because it is less expensive and does not tie up an excessive investment in a piece of equipment that will be used only occasionally. Likewise, it is usually not practical to install a generator that will handle the entire farm load. You only need enough power to run equipment that must be operated at all times. MINIMUM TILLAGE is gaining in most areas. By eliminating one or more trips over the field, you can save $3 to $5 per acre in production cost for corn and soybeans, yet expect yields to be as good as with conventional methods. It also reduced erosion and \veed problems while increasing water holding capacity. If you are short of money, l»bor and time, you will do well to look into the possibilities of this practice under your conditions. KEEP NEWLY BOUGHT ANIMALS ISOLATED from the home herd for awhile. Although veterinarians can test for certain diseases, it is often imnossible to spot latent diseases or infections in their early stages. Newly bought livestock should be tested by a veterinarian, quarantined for 30 days, and then re-examined. Obviously, you wouldn't buy animals you know to be sick, but isolating new animals is a form of insurance against disease outbreak.
