THANKSGIVING PA/ Successful home slorage of surplus vegetables requires good healthy vegetables at, the start of the storage season. Vegetables that are overripe or infected in any way with diseases or insects will spoil rapidly even in the best type of .:ome storage. Vegetable crops vary in their storage requirements.

He stated that his career in he Navy has been a profitable one, and recommends a career in the Navy to any young man who can meet the rigid requirements. Chief Branum has traveled extensively since he first enlisted in the Navy. His sea voyages have taken him to many strange places and he has seen many strange sights, among those sights are several battle grounds of the American Revolution, the famous prison dungeons of Tortugas, Fla., where Dr. Mudd was held prisoner during the Civil War, the ruins of old Panama, the city that the famous fl'xate Morgan laid waste, the famous crater of Mauna Loa, neai" the city of Hilo, on the island of Hawaii. He has hunted bear in the wilds of Alaska, and the dismal swamps of V.irginia,-,rhountain lions in the. mountains of ; .-California, and alli- gatqgs in the swamps of Florida. He -witnessed, the bombardment of the Cuban...fort at Havana, Cuba, during the Cuban revolution in 1934, and was caught in a cross fire of two opposing factions of the revolution while ashore on liberty in Havana. He was duly initiated into the ancient order of the deep while crossing the equator on May 2, 1937, while enroute from La puaria, Venezuela, to Bahia, Brazil, this initiation qualified him as a shellback in the ancient order of the deep, and his certificate and identification card snips, potatoes and turnips keep best,in a cold, moist atmosphere. These conditions can be provided cheaply by outdoor mounds, pits or cellars. For small growers, mounds and pits are used 'most frequently. C. A. Vines, horticulture instruc- totr at the University of Arkansas, says that mounds are usually constructed by placing six or eight inches of straw on a high spot of ground. The desired quantity of vegetables is piled up and then a six-inch stove pipe or similar tube is placed on top of the cone-shaped pile. The pile of vegetables is then covered by about six inches. of straw followed by eight inches of soil over the straw, making sure that the stove pipe is open' to allow 'ventilation. Phillips recommends some kind of a cover for the end of the stove pipe to keep out the weather. Pits differ from mounds by. being located beneath the ground surface. A-- hole about. I*.-foot deep from four to six feet wide and any length desired, is satisfactory. Drainage is important with this type of storage. Ventilation may •be the same as for mounds. About six inches of straw or hay is placed on the bottom and the vegetables carefully piled on top. About six inches more straw is matted over the vegetables arid covered with enough soil to prevent freezing.

This instrument helps them detect nutritional night ' blindness, one of the first signs of a vitamin A deficiency. "But," points out Miss Cora Lee Coleman, county home demonstration agent, "there is a simple wny for the homemaker to make sure that her family gets enough vitamin A. She can include plenty of foods rich in vitamin A in her meals, and see to it that each member of the family eats -his share of these foods." According to Miss Mary E. Longhead of the University of Arkansas College of Agriculture, a recent experiment at the Bureau of Home Economics of the United States Department of Agriculture revealed ! how much vitamin A an average I adult man or woman needs. The' daily minimum need is about 4,000 : international units, according to this experiment. Somewhat more than 4,000 units are needed daily to give a margin of safety. In terms of common foods, Miss Loughead says, enough vitamin A to give an adult "a liberal margin of safety for one clay would be sup- vegetables and fruits are the best sources. These include greens such as kal, turnip tops, and dried yellow peaches," Miss Loughead says. CRANERRY BREAD, THAT'S Floods: Fire; Welcome Shower CRANMORE.
