There me many kinds ami degrees of malnutrition, she explained. (Iciwiuling upon which of tlie dietary fiictors are lacking. In sonic cases the child may not have enough of the right kind of food: In other cases the child's body may not Ijc able to digest and assimilate liis food. In cither case, the result }s a body which docs not measure up to the standards of uood health. A child may not measure up to standard and still not have any noticeable dietary deficiency disease. He may lack only enough of the dietary essentials so that lie is temperamental ana hard to control. Reminding homeniakers Hut the healthy child is ii happy child, Miss Coleman said that continual whining and crying and a lack of vital-1 ity certainly indicate malnutrition. [ acLk of pep, and too little color may lie due to nutritional anemia which is caused from a lack of iron and copper necessary to build good reel Wood. If calcium, phosphorus, and vitamin D are not supplied in adequate amounts, [lie bones become mal-nonrislied and sometimes deformed, a condition known as rickets. A shortage of iodine in the diet causes enlargement of thyroid Bland, a condition known as goiter. . . Inadequate: amounts of vitamin B cause Jack of appetite and symptoms of nervousness. Warning that each of these disorders a iui many others may be presenj, in a mild form, without | causing the unobservant parent uneasiness, Miss Coleman urged all parents to help avoid these complications . by (caching the child «oocl food habits from the be&jin- IIHIJ; .so that bad food habits will not. '.;hiw£ to be "unlearned." Pointing, out that most children learn (.heir bad food habits by imitating adults or older children Miss colenian declared that small children should be exposed to such bad examples. It lakes good health to cope with these trying- times, and good health comes from following good dietary habil.s, she said. Save Space by Growing Cucumbers on Fence One way to grow cucumbers in small Victory gardens is to let the vines climb. Another is 1o confine vines to a small space by pinching off (heir ends when they threat- tn to encroach upon neighboring plants. DitTicullies in growing cucumbers sprint' mostly from their insect enemies, which arc easily controlled. First, the young plants are usually attacked by the striped cucumber beetle, which devours the leaves. Tlie ends of all vines must lie dusted, preferably with a mix. lure of 1 pound of calcium arsenate to 10 pounds of gypsum; and since almost every day there is new growth which in (urn jimsl be protected, this will require constant attention. However, it only takes » few minutes (o attend (o it, and when the vines grow to several feet in length the danger is over. Apliids are likely to breed on Hie Milder side of the leaves, and they must be dusted or sprayed with a contact insecticide, sucli as nicotine sulphate or pyretbrujn. II is easy to do this when the vines are climbing. In selecting a variely of cucumber to climb, one which lias medium sized fruils should be chosen and the cucumbers should be picked when they arc about half grown The pickling type of cucumber is also good for climbing, and the fruits can bo sliced for salad US.C as well as serving for pickles. Cucumbers are usually planlcc in hills, 0 seeds to the hill, of wbicl three are left to grow. They nee< fertile, soil.

To climb a fence or trellis they may bo planted a fool apart in a row. i Hills should be spaced at three feet apart,'unless it is intended to pinch off the ends of vines lo confine tbc'ir spread. There are so-called bill cucumbers which bear their fruits close to.the base of the vine, which are bred for small gardens. ' j Because of the hazards'which beset the cucumber iu its early life, plants should not be thinned out until they nave grown four inches,' Water should be ' supplied fro-! qutvilly during dry weather, as Die, fruits of this plant,have a higlil percentage of water. • .'

To aid Mississippi County house-: wives in keeping their refrigerators oneratng smoothly, Miss Coleman offered the following pointers on the care and use of this important piece of culpn.incut. Place the refrigcrnlor In a cool spot in the. kitchen. See that it is level and linn. Allow about three inches, between the back of the cabinet and about 10 inches of open space nbovc to allow the air to circulate freely and carry off the heat. Except for Hie freezing compartment, no part needs to be colder than 40 p. and no place in the box should be higher than 50 P. Check wilh reliable thermometer about one hour after the door has been closed. Do not open the door any more often than is. absolutely necessary. Collect all of the foods possible that go in the refrigerator and put them in at one time. Follow the same rule for removing food. Work quickly. Cool only the foods that actually need it. Use containers that i'ickrcn Advises Against Feeding To Excessive Weights This Season All IIOB production, dcclnrcd J. .

For the mnn who IMS (lie feed, However, Iliu piv.senl feeding ratios can still be (avoi'able In view of the $1,75 support price, Feeding to excess weights, he pointed out ,can hardly be Justified at (he prescnl lime. The extra cum, he said, can be used more economically on lighter pigs. 'Hie county agent said conditions justify .selling heavy sows dining the Summer, and picking tally spring gilts for Full breeding for nexi Spring's ciop If fnr- meis wish to mninliiln their present herd levels of production. He said feeder pins will probably become relatively plentiful, as com- paicd with feed supplies,'In view of the record liog numbers. This situation, he lidded, will tend lo become more evident in areas that normally do not produce '.surplus corn. fit foods that arc to bo stored, lie- move tops of vegetables, and paper wrappings from all food except packaged frozen foods. Do not slack unless necessary as stacking slows up cooling. Cover foods except those which have thick skins. Never lei the fiost on the freezing unit get more than 1-4 inch thick. When defrosting be sure the drip tray is empty and in place to catch the melting frost. To hasten defrosting, remove the' freezer trays, no not, use a sharp tool to loosen cube liays or to chip frost from the freezing unit. Be sure lo follow the manufacturer's Instructions for defrosting. Do an all-oul job of cleaning when rlefrosling, but do nol use scratchy ciennsim; powder. After the frost U melted, remove everything including the shelves. Wasli Ihe inside, including the shelves, fruit basket, and..vcgetablc crispcr, and outside of ' the freezing unit with warm water. (Add one level tablespoon of baking soda to each quart of warm water used.) Go over with a cloth wrung from clean water. Wipe dry. Wipe off the gasket, taking care not to scratch the rubber. After cleaning the mechanical refrigerator, turn the control back to normal. Fill the ice tiays within l-l inch of the top with fresh water. Check lo sec that all foods are clean and dry as they are rc- lunicd lo the shelves. Remember, every saving, whether it is in the life of the refrigerator, in the fuel used for operating it, or in the food stored in it, makes a contribution to the all- out war effort for Victory I Do You Know... 1.
