Yet It has been hidden In the background by all the talk and advertising of the new home " appliances. > The greatest part of the home-maker 's kitchen working day is spent at the sink. That's where she starts the meals—that's where she end them. And she makes dozens of trips to it in between. The. kitchen sink is the most used, the most needed item in any kitchen. Yet,'' Often too little planning goes into this piece of equipment. "Any old •Ink". won't do say Iowa State College home' management specialists. "A double -biismed sink with a swinging >faticet in which the hot and cold Water can be mixed is one must," says Naomi Shank, equipment specialist. WM. C. BAKKUM C1IIUOPRACTOR In Postville Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays JOSEPH B. STEELE ATTORNEY-AT-LAW } 'Office Over Aberncthy's Store j Telephone No. 240 ' | DR. H. D. COLE Dentist Office Over Citizens State Bank "LEFT TO WRITE" ' (By Lou Gardner) Did A Good Job. A legislative committee, appointed to make a survey of Iowa's mental hospitals, has filed Its report with Governor Robert D. Blue. The report makes constructive suggestions based on careful investigations of all state mental hospitals as well as 35 county homes where mentally deficient patients receive custodial care. The suggestions cover n wide range. They include an endorsement of Governor Robert D. Blue's idea of selecting a competent director of mental institutions to head all hospital staffs. The report. also includes recommendations to return custodial inmates now in state hospitals to county homes in order to relieve crowded conditions which exist in the larger institutions. Other suggestions are for the betterment of hospital personnel and for changes in methods of commitments of patients. The report is accompanied by charts and figures of Informative kind which should be of help to the next legislature in digesting it. The suggestions made by the committee will probably bring out differ ences of opinion. However, the report is well-tempered. It is In the spirit of trying to furnish the next legislature with information on which to approach problems now existing in our state hospitals that should bo corrected.. On the committee were Senator Knudson of Mason City, a business executive, Senator Doud of Douds, an attorney, Dr. John Gardner of Lisbon, a physician of long practice, and Representative John Heffner of Hamilton County, a farmer and the son of a physician. They had the counsel of Dr. Hamilton of the United States Health Service of Washington, D. C. We doubt if there is a citizen in the state of mature and reasoning mind who does not believe that the duty of society is to make every possible provision for the treatment and the comfort of those who are afflicted mentally. The report means that four members of the legislature—all just such view—have made an extensive survey and turned over to the legislature material on which to base action for modern aid and care of those thus afflicted. The committee worked promptly. It They Will Continue. tees as Retrenchment and Reform, The state will continue prosecution gave him a broad, clear insight Into of the cases arising from the beatings at the Eldora Training School for Boys. The executive council promptly made this decision after a report made by the office of Atty. General Rankin. Following this council action, Governor Robert D. Blue said, "The course of the state'is very clear. That is to see that persons guilty of these beatings and mistreatment of state wards are punished and to make it clear to any other state employee that the state will not tolerate beatings of its wards." Here is the position of the administration and of the people of Iowa very briefly and clearly outlined. There should be no misunderstanding about it. Its brevity echos determination. Its clarity makes the call with i of duty plain ' They Arc Plunging. Candidates are plunging into the Republican primaries. These include many seeking county offices, legislative posts and higher state offices. In the state office circle Lt. Governor worked diligently.

His to thanks for its work and the spirit previous experience as a legislator and in which it did that work. j a member of such important commit state business. That was his foundation for a successful record in presiding over the Senate during the last session. Lt. Governor Evans was educated for business. All his life he has . been engaged in farming on a big scale. He thus has an outstanding grasp of Iown's welfare as it is influenced by teamwork between business and agriculture. His service to the state is one of zeal to serve—and serve well. Secretary Of State. Secretary of State Wayne Ropes has also announced his intention of seeking re-nomination and re-election to the office he holds. He has given the public a fine administration. He was recently accorded a full page endorsement of his official work in the Northwest Republican—a publication circulated through a half dozen states in this region. The article was a fine review of his administration—one wjiich brought credit to him, to his force, and to the state which he is serving as a public official. His record gives assurance that he will keep the promise which he makes in his announcement that if re-nominated and re-elected he will continue to "give prompt, efficient and courteous service." Dr.T. W. KIESAU, M.D. jtyr; M. F. KIESAU, M. D. %4P)fficc Over Louis Schutte's ^ttevrs—Daily 9 to 12 and 1 to 5 ,<.','> Wed. and Sat.— 7 to 8:30 p. m. Dr. C. M. Morgan V.»' VETERINARIAN -Office Opposite Post Office f if Telephone No. 146-J Here are the reasons for this tpye: First, it saves on hot and cold water, soap and time, since it encourages the washing, rinsing and self-drying of the pots and pans as food preparation is in progress. Then at canning time, there'll always be one drain and stopper for the hot steamy water. And right next to it, drain and stopper for the ice bath when locker foods are prepared. When the after-dinner clean-up comes, there's no rattling around of dishpans. Just turn the mixing faucet into one basin for the sudsing, then to the other for a scalding hot rinse. When one basin's in use preparing vegetables fo- the table, there's al ways the other basin for other before- dinner tasks—rinsing out pans and warming up the ice cube trays. Along with the doublo-baslned sink, a single drainboavd is handy—especially at dish-washing time. Or the sink with a flat rim edge can be built right into the counter top. Plan to have 3 feet of counter space on either side of sink. The "splash back" is an important feature in a farm kitchen sink. Where lots of cooking goes on, as usually takes place on the farm, there's plenty of splashing. So look for a sink with a high splash back, says Miss Shank. She suggests at least an 8-inch splash back. Porcelain Back. If there's no porcelain back to the sink, it is ideal to have a linoleum splash back carried 10 or 12 inches up the wall. The space underneath the sink should be used, too. That's where the soap, the scouring powders, the- pan scrapers, trash containers and other cleaning articles are the handiest. The doors below should have ventilation holes so the moisture below the sink can escape. And, if you're building the skirt below the sink, be sure to leave a toe space at the base. A knee space, too, allows more comfort for the worker who likes to sit to peel potatoes or wash dishes.

It can become an orderly cabinet into which all the "makings" of delicious dishes are put, ready for meal preparation. Try these lips: Make up ready' mixes, such as pastry, biscuits and gingerbread and store in the refrigerator. Make white sauce enough for severul meals and keep covered in the refrigerator. Grnted cheese and shelled nuts keep well when cold and covered. Take inventory of your refrigerator every day, so that no food is kept too long. And another note: When you remove a food container from the re frigerator to use only a portion, -replace the container promptly. r. R. F.
