WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 9, 1946. THE P0STV1LLE HERALD. POSTVILLE. IOWA.

Meanwhile make use of your prewar model. A lot of feathers around the brooder house is a pretty good sign that pullets arc taking a vacation before they even start work, says W. R. Whitfield, Iowa State College poultry specialist. Whitfield doesn't blame the pullets. He says they may be of the best breeding In the world. But if they're left in the brooder house where they are crowded, or if they find their way up in the trees to roost, a feather crop is about as much as the farmer can expect. The birds simply go into molt, and it takes several months to replace those molted feathers. , To'get eggs Instead of feathers from the all-pullet flock means good care and housing after the birds are 5 months old. At that time, a good flock should be showing signs of laying. They should be confined to the laying house, perhaps one with a sun porch, where their daily feed ration can be closely watched. Whitfield cautions against changing the feed formula at the time the pullets are housed. The same warning is voiced about vaccination, worming or delousing. These measures all tend to disrupt the pullet's habits, and can be responsible for throwing her into a false molt. The experienced poultryman also makes sure that his pullets have plenty of room. He has found from experience that his yearly housing bill per bird is only about 10 cents, compared with a feed bill of $2.50. Good feeding too often is wasted on birds that don't hove room at the table. v'. To bake a better waffle doesn't take a Jrench chef 's skill.

When the woffles ore first off the grid and you want to wait 'til you have enough to go 'round before serving—put them on a wire cake cooker in a slightly warmed oven. This way they'll keep warm and crisp. Putting the baked waffle on a plate causes the underside to sweat and become soggy. For Tender Waffles. And do you like your waffles tender? Thinner batters tend to give a lighter, crisper woffle. The stiff batter turns to a waffle that's somewhat bready and tough. However, if you prefer stiff batter waffles, mixing the batter for a shorter period will give o more tender product. Beating the egg whiles separate from the yolks and folding them into the batter just before baking will give a lighter, more tender product. Melted fat or oil added to the batter docs away with the necessity of greasing an electric woffle iron. However, if the electric iron is too hot or too cold before the batter is poured in, the waffle may stick. If this happens, brush 'the particles out with a wire or other stiff bristled brush and treat the grids with oil as if using the iron for the first time. That is, thoroughly cover the grid plates with salad oil or unsalted melted fat before baking again. It's easy NEED 18 MILLION POSTS TO REPAIR IOWA FENCES Dr. F. W. KIESAU, M.D. i <M M. F. KIESAU, M.

Then heat the iron until the grids begin to smoke Pour on enough batter for one waffle and bake until done. This waffle ab sorbs the excess conditioner. Discard it and you're ready to go with waffles for the family. . Accidents Happen. Accidents with woffles will happen. For instance, the bottom gets too brown and the top's still white. That might mean, you're a bit too slow at the start. Pour the batter quickly onto the bottom and close the lid im mediately. A waffle separating as you open the lid means you were too anxious to have a look. Let the waffle finish baking before you open the lid—and that's 'till the waffle quits steaming And remember to keep the lid closed as much as possible. As soon as one waffle comes out, put more batter In. If that's not possible, close the lid anyway. You'll cool the iron if It's left standing open, until there' a possibility of the next waffle sticking. Eighteen million fence posts normally are required each year to keep Iowa fences in good repair. During the war, however, many farmers haven't been able to make those repairs. So they now face a large fence-building and maintenance program. Richard Campbell, extension forester at Iowa State College, says the farmer with a woodlot containing suitable post material can save him self considerable expense in his fence building and repair program. The coming winter months can pro- ide the time to gut the job done. If operly planned, the harvesting done get posts also can improve the oodlot. Trees crowded or overtopped by healthier and more vigorous trees, those which are poorly formed and those which are diseased or insect- damaged make suitable post material. Small, straight, well-formed trees should not be removed for post material unless they're unhealthy. If left in the woodlot, they'll develop into trees which will yield more valuable products. Durability is an essential of good posts. And the method of handling posts cut at different times of the year does influence their durability. not cared for, posts cut in late spring a*hd early summer are more likely to be attacked by Insects end fungi. Posts should be peeled when cut and properly piled in a dry, shaded spot where there is free movement of air. This will reduce opportunity for decay, checking or splitting. Posts cut in the fall and winter are harder to peel, but season more slowly with less splitting and checking. Post tops should be beveled to prevent excessive absorption of water. And posts should be of sufficient size to give the needed strength. With vacation on, perhaps you can talk your family into a clothing inventory. That's the first step in getting ready for a clothes closet revival. The inv&ntory's to see how much closet space your family actually needs. A well-arranged closet will help keep clothing in good condition and make it easy to got garments out or put'- them away, say home management specialists at Iowa State College. One of the changes easily made to give closets a neat appearance is installing rods or poles to take care of clothing kept on hangers. If there is a shelf above the rod, a minimum of 2Mi inches should be allowed between the top of the rod and the bottom of the shelf. And if two youngsters share the same closet, installing two separate rods will provide them a good incentive to keep their closet in order. In deep, norrow closets on extension pole that can be pulled out into the room will be useful. If only a few garments are kept on hangers, a long hook may take the place of a rod. Check to sec if the closet has enough hooks to accommodate night clothes, aprons, overalls and other garments that do not belong on hangers. Children's play coats and jackets should be kept on hooks about the height of their eye level. A minimum of 7 inches between hooks and 3V4 inches from hook to corner for closet will give enough room for easy removal of a garment without disturbing articles on neighboring hooks. Maybe your closet could use a shoe rack or a low, tilted shelf to keep shoes off the floor and within easy reach. OUTLINES FIVE SALIENT BARRIERS TO WORLD PEACE W.

When a child begins to assume responsibility, there should be some satisfaction in it for him. Dressing himself, for example, may not be a complete success and he may lose interest.

EXPORT GOVERNS EGG PRICE FATE MARKET LOAFING HENS WHILE PRICES ARE UP Humorous typographical errors and . . , , , poorly spun sentences are enough to put things on the table and run to the |" ,_ _ , _ „„ With the government buying poultry at the rale of a million pounds a week, poultry prices remain strong. So it's a good time to market those old hens and underdeveloped pullets that haven't been sold, says Francis Kutish Iowa State College farm economist. Farmers who are following the all- pullet flock program marketed their hens earlier this fall and fUled their laying houses with pullets. One of the reasons for the pullet program Is to get away from - the ''winter vacation" that old hens take about this time of year. Too, there's much less danger from disease. With prices high now, all loafing birds should be. sold. The same goes for pullets which have been culled out of the flock. Kuttsh says the egg side of the poul try picture doesn't look too good for next spring. There Is likely to be less demand for eggs both here at home and from foreign sources. Some demand may develop from Great Britain, but much will depend upon the amount of credit extended to that country. Without foreign demand next spring, price troubles are likely to develop.

After making the rounds, the story of the international joke has returned and here it is: When an Englishman is told a joke, he laughs three times; first, to be polite; second when the joke is explained, and third, when he catches on, When an Italian is told a joke, he laughs twice: first, to be polite, and second, when the joke is explained He doesn't catch on. When a Frenchman Is told a joke, he laughs once: before he catches on. When an American is told a joke, he doesn't laugh at all—he's heard before t Iowa produces more oats than any other state, , . In addition to keeping cream from freezing, the farmer must take the same care in cold weather as in summer if he is going to market good cream. This is pointed out by Verner Nielsen, of the Iowa State College dairy industry staff. Outside temperature really makes little difference' in the way cream is handled after milking. Winter or summer the temperature is still well above 90 degrees Fahrenheit. That is an excellent temperature for separating. But after separation, the cream still may be between 80 and 90 degrees. That's warm enough to permit rapid growth of bacteria. So it's important to cool the cream promptly even in winter. Putting cream outdoors and counting on low temperatures to do the job isn't a sound practice because air is a poor heat conductor, Nielsen says. It would take a long time to cool a can of cream even in below-freezing temperatures. While such cooling takes place, contaminating organisms would grow rapidly. The proper way to cool cream at any time is to put the cream can in a tank of flowing cold water after separating, and leave it there. It's important, too, that cream from The international situation holds the key to egg prices during the next few months, says Francis Kutish, Iowa State College farm economist. Kutish, who recently returned from the outlook conference in Washington, says export demand through UNRRA and from countries* not supported by UNRRA will do much to determine how long egg prices will push ceiling levels. Those ceilings, incidentally, will go down each Thursday from now until early March. The egg outlook looks better 'now than it did a month ago, Kutish believes. He says UNRRA officials would like to buy more dried eggs for relief purposes in Europe this winter. But they are short on money. Recent appropriations will be used primarily to take care of past obligations. If more money is provided, the number of eggs needed will be determined partly by the availability of meat and other food products. If other protein foods are hard to get, the demand for eggs may be boosted. Western European countries not getting UNRRA help may want dried eggs, especially if they also can get some meat and dairy products. There are political questions in these negotiations, however.

With more meat available, civilians are likely to eat fewer eggs next year than in 1945. This adds importance to the export situation. The uncertainty of the egg outlook further stresses the need for the poul­ tryman to protect himself by keeping his flock on an economical basis, Kutish says. This means a thorough culling out of old hens and getting rid of underdeveloped pullets. Such culling will save feed and will help put flocks in line with the reduced numbers called for in the 1946 goals. nouncement with an even stiffer requirement: ^"For Saturday afternoon ;QV 1 Etna*, no »m * >w u _ ^, ^ vince any mother that Marcie became tne Royal movie theater will admit all a perfect child.

Eggs in an ice cream mix improve the whipping qualities, add color, smoothness and stiffness and make the ice cream more resistant to melting. Dried eggs are easier to store than fresh or frozen eggs and can be added to the mix with less waste. Vanilla ice cream made with 1 or 2 percent of dried eggs was reported very favorably by "tasters" in tests carried on at the United States Department of Agriculture. If ice cream production continues at the present rate, approximately 2 billion pounds annually, the addition of as little as Mi to 1 Mi percent of dried eggs would provide a market for from 10 to 30 million pounds of these products. law firm is made up of William C.

Keep this in the refrigerator overnight, and by\ breakfast time the honey will have penetrated all sections of the fruit. This gives an even sweetening and a delicate honey flavor.
