MARTIN Associated Press Farm Reporter WASHINGTON (AP) — A ground swell is developing in farming areas for a federal program thai would reduce the size of the nation's farm plant until markets are better able to use what agriculture is capable of producing. *"-«• •»» — , that ij^"" r sb r .r.? rijulture over-expanded to meet) ° ^ ; ,,„ anr t^ r ^ f ,mtini. nf ; war and postwar needs and that The Iowa Farm Bureau leader, Wg surpluses accumulated as a said it certainly would not be! rraiseouence \mora expensive than the pieicnt, consequence. Pew farmers see hope of any substantial improvement in the farm economy until production can be brought closer into balance with markets, At recent hearings held by the Senate Agriculture Committee in majo: farming areas and in inter- elsewhere, farmers disa- reed on price support levels and program under which the government lost about 800 million dollars in price support operations alone- Present Measures Fail In advancing the soil Dank idea, farmers recognize that present crop control measures have not holding down ,he volume of crop production.

For taking land out of production, farmers would get a payment from the government. Most' farmers agreed that this payment [ should be enough to pay the taxes, on the idled land, pay the cost of| seeding it to a soil building crop.j and give the farmer a rental fee equal to from 5 to 7 per cent of! ts annual productive value.

After flour is sifted dip into it gently before measuring. Run a knife across the top. Hard-wheat flour is good for iiiarjing yeast breads. Biscuits and cakes are usually best when made with soft-wheat flour. Much of Vhe flour sold today is all-purpose. If using a recipe that calls for cake i soft-wheat) flour, you can subsuuue all-purpose flour by the use of two. tablespoons less of all- purpose flour for each cup of cake flour called lor In the recipe.

Today's, home-makers take flours pretty much for granted. But the kind 'of flour used and the way it is measured determines whether such things as cakes and rolls, turn out well. Be sure to use the kind of flour suggested in the recipe followed — hard-wheat flour, soft-wheat flour, or all-purpose flour. Otherwise, you may get cakes that are tough and bread that is heavy and poor in shape. Of course, exact measurements ure necessary when following a i recipe, and Hour is a tricky thing to measure. If it is packed down. i you may get as much as one and : one-half cups into a one-cup meas- volved, problems seem more urgent: they seem harder to understand tha'n other ages. And yet, they perhaps, need understanding more than others. The teenager, at times, acts and feels very grown up. At other times he acts and feels childish. He can't predict his actions and feelings and neither can the adults who live or work with him. His body is changing ~o rapidly that he hasn't learned to manage it. His hands and feet may suddenly seem too large. Many changes are taking place as this child becomes an adult. Other people add to the teenage problems. Do you remember when you were an adolescent? Didn't you feel that grown-ups were pretty inconsistent? First, they would tell you that you were "too old" to act a certain way and in the next minute say you were "too young" to do something you wanted to dp very much. If they didn't know whe'ther you were too old or too youns. how were you to know? j In trying to find themselves, teen-1 agers'band together. They stick] with each other and stand up for i each other. They come up with' soms trademarks that are totally their own. They want to be independent and may go to absurd extremes to avoid something they think is childish. Understanding is a two-way relationship. Adults sholud try to put themselves in the place of the teenager and teenagers should try to see the adults' point of view. Talking: with each other can help, if each learns to listen and hear what the other actually thinks. Learn to share. Trust each other enough to express feelings. Adults, of course, need to control their impulse to dictate to young people. Remember that behavior is caused. More problems arise today because more boys and girls live i nearer each other. Also, communi-! cation and transportation have im- 1 proved so that those who live far | away from others can get with j them. As human beings, we are so-' ciable, want to be with other people, and want iheir approval. There is one comforting thought that parents may keep in mind. Af-; ter giving your teenager all the undemanding you can. remember. that he more than likely will be; the kind of adult that you are. Hu- : man beings learn by example and, your child will imitate you through- ] out life. This is even though he. j as a teenager, may rebel against: you in trying to find himself and ; establish his independence. i Cranberries With the increasing supply of cranberries on the market shoppers ! keep for months.
