Even with this Increase in f?rm acreage, prodtic- tic-n will pcrcciil. be Increased only 5 Much more food than this is heeded. So, to meet the requirements for workers on the home front; America's fighting men and our allies, farmers must help pre- .verit waste on, farms. One of the best ways to cut \voslc is to see that form buildings ore in good repair. Like any war plant, the farm has two types of buildings; those for production, such as poultry houses, hot houses,''and cattle barns, and warehouses, such as granaries, jnd milk houses Generally, the farmer has bsen more carelul ol his farm machinery than of his farm buildings. That probably fs because: it asks lose all o- most ot it, 'iC ho stores it in a bavn with a Icalix-roof. Poultry flcicks sutler, as much as 30 percent lous because of poorly insulated damp structures. Hog houses and cattle barns must be dry and wealhcr-rcaistant, or livestock morality will increase. Present figures show IJial 30 to 4Q percent of live stock never reaches maturity, because of inadequate shelter. ' The first step in putting farm buildings in good shape is a roof survey. If roofs are not strong, weather-light and firc-rcslstgnt, the farmer's production schedule New Model Home Has Shower Stall Of Asbestos Board Expects at the housing division of the Research Foundation at Pui- dg<!
