The A or Fancy li or Choice and C or Standard grade designations were thus 'first used by the hade without necessarily appearing on Ihe label of each can. Food and drug experts labored long find diligently to write these original grading standards. An al- tempt was made to set up grade labeling ns part of the law in Ihc New Deal's famous Tugwell bill, but (lint was defeated. STANDAImS NOW UKQIIIUET) Then in its place there was passed the Copeland bill, now known as Ihe Food. Drug and Cosmetic.? act. which set up without grade Inbcllni! the standards of purity now required on all canned goods entering interstate commerce after July 1. ISMO. Seven foods arc now covered _ apricots, cherries, fruit corklail. peaches.' pears, peas and tomatoes. Consider the standards uf quality required (or tomatoes: The con- tcnts of the can must be 50 per cent tomato meat, all tomato material with no water added. The to- ninioes must be ripe.

Those standards if quality arc probably higher than nost home c.'tnners set for the luff they put in their own kilcli- :ns. ¥ HOrOSKI> STANDARDS Getting over into the proposed landards for grade labeling, it is ound that whereas Grade A to- nalocs may have one-fourth square nch ot blemish per pound, Grade 3 may hare one-half square inch \nd Grade C may have up lo one nch.

The penalties for misbrandiny, by he way. arc adequate, to say the east, involving sei/.urc and con- Icnination of product, fines, and so . What the cannery people fear is hat Ihe imposilion of grade labeling on lop of these standards already in force under the Copeland bill will so complicate their processes in this year of extra demand and short labor supply that they nay not be able lo pul up enough 'oods lo meet their goals.

Sweet Com at Best Grown In Victory Gardens SUCCESSIVE PLANTINGS A6OUT TEH DAYS APART TO ENdOy A LONG SEASON OF SYJET.T COB.H. FIRST • PLANTING SECOND _PUNTIHG PLANT CORM IN 5QU \TH1M> PLANTING Since we cat only the seed of sweet corn, discarding the rest of Ibe large plant, (he yield is sm.... for the space occupied. Many gardeners are willing to make n sacrifice in order lo enjoy even a small nmount of ibis superlative food, which only home gardeners can enjoy at ils besl. In markels, since it is impossible to gel sweet corn in less than a day afler it has been picked, lialf ils sugar has been turned to starch, with corresponding loss of flavor. A patch ol sweet corn in a space fifteen feel square in normal ive;itli- er should yield ten dozen cars. This is approximate, of course; each stalk bearing nt least one ear, and some of them bearing two. For the gardener who wnnls Ihe finest sweet corn ralhcr than Ihc largest ear or heaviest yield, successive planlings of Golden Bantam will give the greatest satisfaclion except in locations v.'hcrc disease resistance is required. The season during which a sowing o( this corn is at ils best is ten days at most; so not more than a 10 days' supply for your family should be sown nl one time. Hybrid sweet corn lias both nd- vanUiges disadvantages. Jl gives a larger ear, and thus a heavier yield, coupled with a sborl- er season, and nol quite so delicious a flavor. Most hybrids arc disease resistant, and more vigorous than Golden Bantam, bul Ibcy rc'.jtiire more room and richer feeding to produce their heavier crop. If hybrids are chosen, it is a good plan lo sow three or four strains, with differing maturity dotes, at the some lime and thus prolong Bledsoe Flees Prison LITTLR ROCK. April 30 (U.P.l — Billy liurlin "Schoolboy" Blcd.toc has escaped from the stale prison at Cummins. Blcrtsoc. who was servin a 37- year ssnlonce. for burglaries and holdups, lefl Ihe prison with approximately S1GO. Stale police have joined in Ihe search for the missing convict. Ihc harvest. This practice also extends (he pollinating period of tl|c planting and lessens the danger of n failure lo fertilize Ibe silk, which may occur where one hybrid strain only is grown due to unfa, vorablo ive;i(lier conditions. A sowing of sv.-ect corn should be made in four short rows, ralher Ihan in a single long row. This insures lhat when Ihe pollen is ripe, a cross wind will carry it to Ibe silk in the young cars ot an adjoinin" row, ralher Ihan wasting it on the ground, as -might bo the cose in a single row. Each silk must be fertilized by pollen, in order lo produce a kernel, and many failures with corn are traceable to poor nol- linalion. Seed should he sown when danger of frost is over about two inches deep either in continuous drills or hills. In drills, sow three or four seeds to a foot, later to be thinned out to six inches apart for dwarf growing varieties or a foot apart for (all ones. Space Ihc hills two to three feet apart in the rows according to the size ot the variety and for bolh drills and hills, space Ibe rows livo lo three feet apart. Deep cultivation of corn must be avoided because the plants have shallow rools; bul all weeds should be kept down and the soil stirred lo break ils crust, until the plants are half grown. Side shoots and suckers need not be removed. Ears should be picked when tliey arc ready, neither before or afler. If you grow Golden Banlam, for the last sowing a later variety will probably do best, as the extreme beat of midsummer is not favorable to Banlam.
