Building materials are short—yes. But Naomi Shank, home management specialist at Iowa State College, says there's no shortage of 1 i-inch square checked paper, pencils, rules and measuring tapes. And that's what it takes to plan building changes for the future. Miss Shank says make your mistakes on paper in changing and arranging your kitchen equipment, storage spaces, windows and doors. Then by the time building materials are on the market, you'll be ready to sail through with your plans and have a house that you can boast of as efficient, comfortable and suited to your own individual family needs. The more chances you take on paper, the better your chances will be of having the best plan possible. Along with early planning, Miss Shank suggests keeping a kitchen scrapbook. As you're leafing through magazines and newspapers, she says, clip out the kitchen suggestions and paste them in your scrapbook so they'll be handy to pull out for the carpenter when you actually start building. "Planning the Kitchen," bulletin P-77, is another item you should keep in your "suggestion" collection. Miss Shank says. It's available from the Bulletin Office, Iowa State College Ames.

All members are cordially Invited to attend. District Commander's Letter. The following letter was received by the local Legion Post Tuesday from C. N. Evanson, Fourth District Commander: Why join The American Legion? Well, fellah, it's a long story, and we know you don't want to stand to 'tenshun and listen to a complete history of what the Legion has done for community, state and nation since its organization in 1019. There has been no magic in making the Legion what it is today. It Is just a plain fact that the Legion has given thousands of man hours and thousands of dollars to carry on the highest type of community, slate and national programs that any organization in all the history of mankind has ever attempted. The value of a membership in the Legion is not measured by the dues you pay, nor by the dollars and cents return. The return to those who faithfully serve is far greater than that. . . . one that can only be measured by com­ radeships and friendships which arc as lasting as eternity itself. Our American youth was soft at the beginning of the war. Who said that? Some ismist perhaps who was intent upon one thing, and that to lead his superiors into believing our boys could be slapped and pushed around at will. Well, fellahs—you know the story npw that it has been written. Aren't you proud that we stayed in there and pitched 'em over the old pan for Junior baseball; weren't you shouting with joy when Jimmie. the lad you helped play the game, socked a grenade right in the old groove and destroyed a nest of Nazi rats or Japs? You just bet you are! And that's not all. How about other athletic programs sponsored by the Legion? There are plenty of them— and plenty of other worthwhile programs the Legion has sponsored for many years. Here's an item i;i the broad, constructive Legion program with which many of you are already familiar, namely, the G. I. Bill of Rights—of Legion origin and Legion sponsored through Congress. And what'sj more, the Legion is still working with the G. I. Bill—For The Good of the Veteran—a consistent thought in Legion action. And remember this, the Legion won't promise what it can't deliver. All you old-timers know the facts. All you new-timers have to do to learn the facts is to get in there and help us pitch. Why bother you fellahs with more words. Get your memberships in today— help the old-timers realize a wonderful ambition—to more than double our state's 1945 quota before our 26th anniversary on March 15, 1946. More than half of the Legion Membership in Iowa to date is W W II, so you'll find your buddies already in the American Legion. The size thread you buy for your stitching is one measure of the life of your garment. Where a "too heavy" thread is used, it rests on top of the fabric getting the full effect of the iron and the brunt of the everyday, wear. As a result, this stitching doesn't last as long as a lighter weight thread would—one that practically becomes a part of the fabric itself. Here arc thread sizes recommended by Iowa Slate College home economists: For sheer fine fabrics, use 80 to 100 cotton thread or size 50 in t the mercerized. Medium weight fabrics should be sewed with a 60 to 80 cotton thread, and A or B silk or a 50 mercerized. Firmly woven fabrics require a size 40 to 60 cotton, a C silk or a 50 mercerized. Now is the time to get oats, clover and other seeds cleaned and ready for planting. Weed-free seeds are an important part of a weed-control program. Use Bees For Earlier and Higher Yield of Fruits By placing a colony of bees In your yard you can raise the prospects of fruit yields in your orchard and berry patch this spring. Package bees are pretty scarce this year. If you find It impossible to buy them on the market, you might rent a colony of bees from a beekeeper in your vicinity. Floyd Paddock, extension apiarist at Iowa State College, says you'll need the bees from about mid-April to mid- May, depending on the fruits you have. The bees can be used to pollinate cherry, apple and plum trees as well as fruits like raspberries and strawberries. The 15,000 bees that fly out of one 3-pound package will amply take care of the pollinating needs for the average home orchard. W. G. Murray, head of the Department of Economics and Sociology at Iowa State College, says that more and more farmers are considering improvements in farm family -living a better investment than land at the present high prices. Dinner guests Sunday in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Ricker and family were Mr. and Mrs. Roy Smith and Betty of Monona, and Mr. and Mrs. Palmer Halvorson and Phyllis Jean of Clermont. Much-talked-of "solar" heating, the system whereby houses are partially heated by the sun's rays on the windows, is claimed not to heat up the house in the summer. Carefully designed overhanging roofs allow the sun to come dii'-etly into the rooms and heat them in \hc winter, but in the summer, when the sun travels a higher arc. the overhangs act as "eyebrows" above the windows and keep them shaded and cool. The Neighborhood Club held their regular meeting at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Zieman Sunday night, where after the card playing, a lunch was served by Mrs, Zieman. Mr. and Mrs. Ed W. Schleo and children were dinner guests Sunday in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Elmer A. Hoth and sons.
