The 'running horse races will begin ..Thursday, with about 80 stars and do 4-H Club work.- Sometimes their project selections are a problem, due to lack of space for a crop or livestock. Sometimes they do not even have room for a garden, says Keith Bitbrey, county agent. The boys and girls from the Bly- thevilte Army Air Base, abnuL 25 of them, offered a real problem for us this year, said Mr. Bilbrcy, because they were not ,permitted to have crops or livestock within the base compound. They wanted to be 4-H members though, at the Gosnell High School, so they all pondered the question. Scon the club itself came up with the answer: Why not have a club garden at the school and the produce could be canned and used in the school's hot lunch program in IMS. Well, that's about the story, said Mr. Bilbrey, except that : they hac what is known as the Victory Far.n /ohmteers.

Overseas "If you're considering some food gift for a service man or woman overseas, send only «'!mt you know will keep." Thus is the'recommen- dation of home economisls of the U. S. Department, of Agriculture to inquirers hopefully hunting ways to put iip,fried chicken, lemon pie, home-canned pickled eggs, and other delicacies, so that they \ "' stand aOiard sea voyage. rvAn v food: that .could .be sa^ torily sent to a civilian can be sent to a '.'service person within the United Slates. But before deciding to mail food to war zones, it's well to count four. Both ,lhe War and Nayy Departments agree on thess. points: 1. Soft candy and fruit have been known to ooze from a package and run clear out of bounds, causing trouble wherever they ran. 2. Cookies and other perishable foocls may have a rough and tumble time, and a hot time, in a ship's lioltl, and arrive shattered nnj perhaps even rancid or moldy. A box may be heading for the cold north but in, the engine room of a ship where some packages travel, tin heat sometimes rises to 135 degrees 3. Boys overseas so often-eat out Icn returning from overseas con- inn this, saying that fruit, cnke lands up very well. If it is lo travel successfully, a rult cake should be Him and ra- hcr dry when it comes from the •veil. Recipe proportions and long jaklnif at low tcmpcrnturc itrc 1m- ;oitant. Then, if the cake Is well- tacked, the fruit will moisten.. the nlxturc nnd flavors \\-H\ blend to "ripen" the cake for good eating. Well packed means cake wrapped wldi clean, fresh paper, so the cake will be rigid. Adhesive lapc may help to keep a tin box lid on and moisture out. Store Onions, WfA Urges The WFA has advised that consumers store n few pounds of new onions at homo now In order lo insure u supply Inter nnd 1ms designated onions iis the Victory Fnoi Selection for the period September 21-Octobcr 7. Production this year is estimated ul over n million 100- pound sacks or 52 per cent more limn last year's production so the supply should be much belter limn, u few months ago.
