Here are points to consider when helping to plan or improve your school's kitchen. The basic plan of a school lunch center differs from a regular kitchen in that it's not as important to work from left to right. Instead, each woman works individually in her own unit. It is important to have the work flow from storeroom and refrigerator to the preparation centers, to the range, the serving center and back for clean-up with a minimum of cross traffic, however. Table On Wheels. To bring together the units which tie in closely, a sturdy table on wheels an invaluable aid. If five or six feci long by two feet wide, the table is narrow enough to be wheeled through the storeroom door with ease and yet large enough to carry many supplies or dishes. The table might be equipped with provisions needed at several units, such as a rack of knives. Consider Needs. Vegetable preparation equipment is handiest near the sink, baking supplies near the range. If your set-up Is so small that there is no need for a large storeroom, here's a tip for keeping staples: Keep (lour, sugar in large garbage cans; use another can for small boxes. In buying baking pans, consider the size of your oven. For quantity cookery, baking pans that fit the oven, allowing %-inch margin, are satisfactory. And in choosing stock pans—the large, flat-bottomed kettles—remember that the pan should have a capacity of Ave gallons for every 40 children served. The range itself proves most satisfactory if it has a large top surface. Each school lunch program has its own shopping demands, but many be licve it is best to shop once a week, if refrigerator space is adequate. How ever, if this means crowding the re frigerator, it will cut down on work ing speed of the staff and the efficiency of the refrigerator, us it requires less electricity to run a large refrigerator moderately filled than a small, crowded one. FARM KERNELS. It's tilne to start looking at the backs of cattle for lumps, which indicate that grubs are present. Dust with rotenone to control them, Soft corn can be a good feed for milk cows if handled properly. But some problems must be worked out in the feeding, says Floyd Johnston, Iowa State College dairyman. First of all, soft corn is high in water content and low in digestible nutrients, So cows can't produce much milk on soft corn feed. In normal years, • corn has from 83 to 88 percent dry matter. This year, it may have only 65 to 70 percent. That means that of each bushel of ear corn, only 50 pounds of the 70 the cow any good. If a farmer wants a cow to produce a good quantity of milk on this feed, he will have to give the cow more grain. For every pound of* sound corn fed, he will have to give about two pounds more of the soft corn To get the same results. In other words, it will take about ten pounds* of the high-moisture corn to equal eight pounds of sound corn in a normal year. When soft corn is ground, it heats and won't keep very long. The corn can be ground with oats or other grain so the moist particles of corn can be kept apart. In extreme cold weather, grind only a week's supply at a time. When the weather is warm, grind only about a two or three-day supply. When mixed corn and ground grains in the bin won't roll down of their own accord the mixture is too wet and will sour, Cows won't touch it then. A cow giving six to eight gallons of milk a day needs from 12 to 15 pounds of grain, and two-thirds of it can be corn if the hay is alfalfa. Corn is the most desirable of all Iowa grains for milk cows. It is palatable and highly nutritious and usually supplies nu trients the cheapest of all common grains. For these reasons, in Iowa corn should supply a large portion of the concentrate. List Of Taxpayers Of Ludlow Township.

Suppose we were to run a Gallup Poll on the question, "Do you believe that children prefer to imitate the bad in other children rather than the good?" The majority would say, "Yes," and their guess would be wrong. Here is what you may rend in a book published a short time ago. The author says, "Luckily, he (the child) copies the good as readily as the bad unless the bad is made more interesting and dramatic than the good." It is very easy for the parent to make the bad more, interesting than the good. We may say, "Now, don't let me see you playing with that boy again!" And presto! that boy's behavior is • made dramatic. Playing with that boy at once becomes mysterious and exciting. The children begin to take notice of everything he does. Some of the older children stand up to defend him. We might try calling attention to good behavior at least as often as we spotlight the bad. We might say, That boy you were playing with seems to tie an honest youngster. I heard him own right up when Mr. Brown asked who stepped on his rosebush." But, be careful! Do not overwork the good deeds, either. Children soon get wise to any kind of a build-up and they resent having "model" children held up before them. Children need both praise and criticism. Neither one should be used too often. Our problem is to be careful that we do not make bad behavior more attractive than good.

That's definitely not a new thought. Yet only 21.5 percent of Iowa farm homes even have running water, according to the 1940 census. Whether the house is new or remodeled, put in a bath even if the plumbing cannot be installed immediately, says Naomi Shank, home man- , agemcnt specialist at Iowa State College. A house today is not modern without one. If the house is a two-story model, and there's room for only one bathroom, the most convenient place for it is on the first floor. Miss Shank suggests placing it off a hall, if possible, rather than off the living room, dining room, kitchen or porch. It should bo accessible from all rooms without passing through another room. And the bathroom door, she says, should not be in direct line with the entrance of the house or any of the living room doors. In building and equipping your bathroom, check to see if you've allowed for these seven needs: A source of hot water; a window on an outside wall; some means of heating; water pipes protected against freezing with individual shut-off valves on tubs, basins and bowls; waterproof walls and floors which arc easily cleaned; safely located electric switches and outlets; storage for bathroom supplies, linens, cosmetics, medicines and soiled clothes. NO PRICE FALL. Ted McFarling and Lloyd Son, Jr., caused the fall of dozens of eggs, but not in price. McFarling's truck slid into a ditch near Shannon City while Son's truck slid into a ditch near Creston—both trucks were hauling eggs. The eggs fared the worst of the ordeals. VALENTINE MONTH.
