Either shelled corn or crackci vlieul can Uc used as the grali 'ccd with all of lliese protein mixtures, Ihe county agent poinlcc out. Frequently it is advisable to use ihe sell-feeder with brood sows mid pigs. The brood sows can be brought, lo full feed in about 10 days lo two weeks after farrowing. In many instances bred sows can be fed with a self- feeder, and they probably would have a bel- ler-balanced ration from the standpoint of protein supplements, minerals, and vitamins than are furnished the average sow fed in a dry lot. A suggested mixture of feeds in a sclf-lcerier for bred sows is one-half grain, one-half ground alfalfa hay, wilh five per cent high-protein feed, such as soybean meal, cottonseed meal, or tankage.

That will depend on how bieli Ihc prices of frcsb vegetables, on which Ihcre is so far no ceiling, arc allowed to go. Even before the war, careful tests am! studies made by the School, of Living ot Suflern, New York, established that a vegetable garden can save llio average family from $58.48 to $100.11 a year, at lac same lime providing over '100 pounds more vegetables than are consumed by most city families. In a bulleiin detailing its studies of (his subject the following statements arc made: "A century ago home vegetable gardens were the rule. Today nol only city families but millions ol families living in suburban anil country districts buy their vegc tables in retail stores. "This habit was acquired prc siimably l.-ccausc live public hac been led to believe that it is cheap er as well as inorc convenient to buy vegetables than to grow them But careful studies show that this «s not Irue; that shopping and market ing nol only lake lime and energj which might be used to grow them but llial purchasing vegetables i an expensive luxury. "The studies of the school sho\ that Ihe quantity of vcgclables nov purchased by the typical American family, including canned, holllec and dried, pan be grown and bar vested in less than two weeks' tim per year. Aclually the totnTamoun ot time necessary for planling, car ing for and harvesting a vcgclabl garden is less than that commonl ecupicd in shopping In Ihe retail larkct. "It is estimated thai the average miorican woman shops for food at east 120 times a year. The pnr- base oC vcgclables at reasonable rices is an hnporlnnl part of each bopping Irip, an adventure which rdinarily consumes n couple of icnrs. Yet a lolal ot approximately wo hours' work weekly throughout be year suffices lo produce all the cgelable needs of the family ionic," As lo the quality of home grown vegetables, compared with those, obtained in ihc inarkcl, Ihc bulle- iu slates: "You learn win I really' fresh vegetables taste like. Peas, corn, ima beans, string beans and the rcsl of the vegetable family lose more than halt Ihcir delicious flavor ii few hours after picking. 'Half an hour from vine lo pot' is a wise saying of country folk whose meaning has been culircly lost lo the modern race of city and country buyers of so called 'fresh' fruits and vegetables." Dclails of Ihc lesls upon which Ihcsc staleincnls nrc based are given in the bulleiin. To produce 1,749.7 pounds of fresh vegetables required a total of 04 hours and 17 minutes' work. The lolal cost, including taxes and Interest bill not labor was compared with Ihc market cost of ! the vegetables, and showed a saving of $58.<I8, winch figured out as 02 cents for each hour's work required; and besides, says Ihe bulletin; "You nol only experience Ihc pleasures of planling and lending a garden but profil from the exercise involved."

Guy Muckcy, Purdue athletic director, decided lo hold the 12Ui annual football clinic on regular schedule April 9-10. l!c said Hie poll indicated an overwhelming majority for continuance. "Theni arc three good rcusoiu why every family, If possible, should inve n turdcn this your," says Miss Cqru i.ce Colcinnu, home ilcinon- slrnllon iigcut. • "In the first place, looil production Ls war work this year.
