Production of cottonseed oil during the-7-month period, August 1943, through February, 1914, exceeded combined production of soybean oil, peanut oil and corn oil the ,reports Tshow.

Time To Plant Peppers, Eggplant and Sweet Potatoes Peppers,'eggplant, and sweet |>o- laloes can be planted In Mississippi ounty within this month Miss Cora Lee Coleman. county home demon- trallon agent, advised Victory avdeners this week, Although peppers arc not a ina- or item of food, they nre widely ised, and eveii two or three plants will .supply a surprisingly large lumber of peppers, Miss Colcrmui aid.- Peppers, she pointed out. are varm weather plants like tomatoe.s, »t nre even more sensitive to cold. While it Is usually desirable lo set hem' out as soon as possible nflei May 1, if the ground is not thoroughly warm, planting should be clayed a few diiys longer. A 'airly fertile soli-is required tor good growth and, In most cases, he gardener should supply from six to seven pounds of commercial fertilizer for each 100 feet of row Good varieties are Wliutsci'-A, California Wonder and Ruby King Red Cancnnc and Red Clilli are liol varieties commonly grown foi layering. Plants measuring fron six to 10 inches are most desirable for Inmsplanllng. The plants shouU be set 18 to 24 Indies apart ii rows 24 to 30 inches apart. Tlics should be set In the ground on or two Indies deeper than the. grew In the plant bed. Eggplant, according to Miss' Cole man, Is not one of the easier crop to produce, but' should do fairl well, If reasonable care Is glvci the plants. Half a dozen plants or dlnarily will supply a family If Hi season Is favorable. Six lo eigh pounds of fertilizer for each 10 feel,of row should be sufficient lo grow a good crop. Plants five to eight Inches tall should be selected. The spacing is the same as ic crop requires considerable space or growing, IL provides heavy lelds nnd should llnd a place In II but tlic smaller gardens. The rop needs n fertile soil, but if the round Is 'excessively rich, the roots my become larger than desired, or lit crop may make excessive vine rowlli with u .small yield of rools On most garden soils about four rounds of mixed commercial fer- illra- for each 100 feel of row will )c sufficient. Slips or planUs mas >c obtained from local seed stores or other dealers and should be rom six lo 10 Inches long. The plants arc usually set o: Ulges 8 lo 12 Inches high and llmif led apart. The plants may bo se Irom 14 to 18 Inches apart in lh ridge. On the richer soils, thi closer spacing Is preferable. 'I'll should lie placed nude the ridge a week or 1C days nhcai of planting.

When point, values rere first reduced not lout" ago on canned vegciabtos, many assumed that the bailie of food was already won, and that they could .ake things easy this summer.

E«0 CO OK Ell V How much heat Is used In cook ing and how the ingredients go lo getlicr are the questions that oftc decide whether an omelet, an ange food or any oilier egg dish is success or a failure, according I home cconomlsls of Ihe U. S. DC partmcnt of Agriculture who hav recently made special studies egg cookery. The most important rule for ooking eggs alone or In mixtures-* 'lielher the cooking is done i« tiler, frying pan or oven—is: Use o\v to moderate even heat. Eggs ctikctl with too much heal become oiigb and leathery. In custards and other egg and nllk combinations,' curdling Is of- cn a problem. The home econom- sts say this • may be prevented, irst, by proper mixing, and, second, >y cooking at moderate heat until hu mixture is firm—but no, longer. When hot milk is added to egg, Ihe uyar .should be mixed with HID egg. tiot wilh the milk. Then Ihe nllk should be added lo Ihe egg a liltlc at a time. In making souffle, omelet or an gel food, the mixing Is again im- joitant, To combine beaten whites with other mixtures, fold in the white with a light tinder-and-over notion instead of stirring it III. Fold the heavy mlxtlire into the iicalcn whites never the whiles inlc the heavier mixture.
