WEDNESDAY, MARCH 13, 1948. THE POSTVILLE HERALD. POSTVILLE. IOWA. PAGE SEVEN. Select Nylons With As Much Care As Rayons fumed for the Herald's Homemakerg by Iowa State College Home Economists [Designed For— CHILDREN'S MODERN LIVING In this day and age every child has his rights. And one of these Is a place in the home he can call hisoun—a place where he can keep his private-most belongings. Count your family's needs when you itnrt remodelinR, refurnishing, re- iivcruitini; your home, say Iowa State rollouc home economists. Children, .hey've found, are so often left out in ho family house planning—especially 11 (arm homes. Dr. Gertrude Chittenden, head of he Iowa State College Child Devel- ipment Department, recommends a 'mobile" unit for the children's part n housing. It's mobile in that it comes n three sections, each of which can used separately or any two to- WM. C. BAKKUM CHIROPRACTOR In Postvlllc Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays I JOSEPH B.

In selecting for size, you may find that nylon hosiery should be a little larger, if you've been depending on rayons to stretch. However, nylons arc made according to standard sizes, and should be selected according to shoe size. Here are corresponding common shoe and stocking sizes for women: Shoes Stockings 5'i wide to 6V4 narrow OVt O'i wide to 7Mi narrow 10 714 wide to 8'/j narrow lO'/j 8V4 wide to 9V£i narrow 11 In choosing nylons, look for the price ceiling mark, and be certain to pay no more. Check the "denier": The larger the denier number the heavier the yarn. The "gauge" indicates the number of needles covering an inch and a half on the needle bar used in knitting Gauges vary from 39 to 54, and the higher the gauge, the finer and sheerer the hose. , If the toe, heel and hem reinforce ments are made of part cotton or ray on, you can expect those sections to have some of the features of cotton or rayon hose. You should treat the entire hose 1 as you would treat cotton or rayon, as the case may be, or you may find an otherwise good pair of stockings ruined at foot or hem.

And any section can ried off by itself to another the house. Knccholc Desk. The middle section resembles a small knccholc desk and can be used as such when Junior grows up to a desk desiring age—perhaps three or four. On the left is a deep storage drawer. And below that is a door hinged at the bottom. Opened, this door makes a handy "runway" for fire trucks and midget tractors. The two end pieces of this storage unit arc shelves on top with a door- concealed storage space below. Use these two pieces side by side or stacked atop each other, and they make a child-sized chest. Another convenience of this unit is that it can grow with the child. In the same arrangement as pictured, only with a mirror replacing the picture, you have a dressing table for a daughter Hearing ten. Take away the middle section, lay a straight finished board across the top of the two end pieces and it's a desk the size for a strapping teen agcr. Dr. Chittenden says the simplicity of design, too, is a .blessing to fathers who aren't hammer handy. The finish is neutral so will fit in with any furniture—modern or medieval. Gardeners wanting to try at least one different vegetable this summer might consider ecleriac, says Larry Grove, Iowa State College garden specialist. Celeriac, sometimes called turnip- rooted celery, is a vegetable not commonly grown by Iowa gardeners. Celeriac will stand hot weather better and is more dependable under our conditions than celery. Its thick, fleshy root is excellent for use in salads, soups and other tasty dishes. The Golden Jubilee variety of tomato ofTers another opportunity. It is considered one of the highest quality tomatoes ever produced, surpassing other available yellow varieties to such an extend that they probably will be discarded. Those who are not familiar with Jubilee should try several plants this season. Grove says. The fruit is mild in flavor, meaty and has very few seeds. Plan carefully before you buy a home freezer—the freezer itself "has it coming." A relatively expensive piece of home equipment, the freezer will be expected to serve your family for a lifetime. And only a freezer which has been wisely selected will live up to your expectations, says Naomi Shank, extension home management specialist from Iowa State College. On the other hand, a home freezer which meets your family's needs, proves convenient to use and operates efficiently over a period of years proves itself a much-appreciated member of our equipment family. But bo sure that obtaining such a freezer is not left to chance. Your family's frozen food needs are best determined individually. Some families will require Ave cubic feet of frozen food storage space per person in a year and others, who depend more on other preserved foods, will require only three cubic feet. Convenience is dependent on a number of things: The location of the freezer is one. The type of opening to the freezer cabinet Is important, for to be truly labor-saving, it must provide easy access to the food. Facilities for defrosting are not to be overlooked, for the occasional defrostings and disposals of drainage water arc extra work. Operating efficiency over a period of years depends to a large degree on the availability of replacement parts, the regularity of servicing and the construction of box and motor. Long established manufacturers' guarantees will be some guide to this. Efficiency, too, is affected by ventilation around the box, strength and evenness of the supporting floor, adequacy of the wiring in your home and the amount of current used. uno€MT«nomQ i out A cuiLDfeen i»onjosveo t» Tue ioam CHID WtlfAfct MttAKH STOTlfln OUR NEW BABY. SAVED SUGAR STAMPS. FOR DARK GINGERBREAD, MILD FLAVOR, USE SODA How do you like your gingerbread— dark, light, mild or pungent? Iowa State College home economists say that gingerbreads containing larger 'proportion of soda are darker in color, while the gingerbreads made with baking powder and no soda are lighter-hued. Gingerbread made with soda has a less strong flavor than that made with baking powder, for the soda seems to combine with some of the ingredients of the molasses, "taming down" their flavors. However, using an excess of soda in hopes that you'll get a milder flavored gingerbread will give a soapy tasting product. SAFETY FIRST. "Come in," said two-year-old Kathryn, "and sec my room. I'm sleeping in a big bed now." But where is your little bed?" inquired the caller. Kathryn beamed. "Oh, we are saving my bed for our baby when it gets borncd." 'Smart mother," murmured the call er to herselr. Kathryn's mother is smart because she has made the necessary changes in family routine, in advance of the baby's arrival. It is much easier now for Kathryn to "give" away her little bed to the wonderful new baby that is coming, than for her to be pushed out of it on the night the baby is brought home from the hospital. She also can grow accustomed to her new sleeping arrangements before she has to adjust not only to a baby in the house but to a baby in her crib. Note also that Kathryn spoke of "our" baby. Her mother had helped her to feel that she had a share in this baby. They had talked over the things that Kathryn would do to help mother when she bathed the baby. She should hold the powder box for mother and even be allowed to sprinkle some on the baby. Sometimes she would be allowed to sit on the bed and hold the baby in her lap for a little while. She went with her mother to select a toy to hang over the baby's crib, and she was allowed to select something for herself at the same time. Kathryn's mother was careful to make her feel that she was equally as important as the baby. A good way to prevent jealousy of the new baby is llrst to keep the older child looking forward happily to the baby's arrival. Second, accustom the older child to necessary changes in family arrangements before the baby comes. Third, allow the older child to love the baby and help do things for it. Fourth, give the older child plenty of affection and attention so he won't feel neglected. "Anyone who wants to keep on living nowadays has to learn how to cross the street safely," says David's mother. And I am starting to teach David right now," she adds. David Is only two years old and we may wonder how his mother can begin teaching him safety rules at this early age. Here is how she does it. When they reach a corner she tells David why they stop and shows him how to look both ways for cars. If a car is coming she says, "We will wait until this car passes. She knows that a two year old does not understand what Is in her mind when she waits at the corner. So she explains to him in a very simple language. Where there are traffic lights she says, "That is a red light. We must stop. Now that is a green light. We can go." David's mother docs not know how much he understands or whether he can tell red from green at two years. But some day he will catch on and she knows that early learning lasts a long time. When he is three years old his mother plans to let him tell her when the light says "Stop" and when it says "Go." She also will let him take her hand and guide her across the street. For she believes that David needs to practice safety rules as well as listen to them. David's mother offers many other sensible suggestions about teaching children in a book called "Children Can Help Themselves." This book is written by M. O. Lerrigo and is about children from one month of age to eleven years. It is published by MacMillan Company, New York. PRESSURE SAUCEPAN WILL SHORTEN COOKING TIME Dr. F. W. KIESAU, M.D. [Dr. M. F.

If it's shorter cooking time you want, and if you don't mind being a clock-watcher, a pressure saucepan might be for you. Priscilla Cobb, Iowa S^ate College home economist, says pressure saucepans offer advantages that seem noteworthy to some homemakers and, on the other hand, pointless to others. There Is one undisputed advantage of cooking in a heavy, aluminum saucepan of the type of these new pressure models—there is little evaporation, hence a minimum loss of nutrients and litlle cooking water required. Because pressure within the pan is allowed to build up to a certain number, live, ten or fifteen pounds, depending upon the model, higher temperature than otherwise attained is reached. Therefore, time of cooking is markedly reduced—a distinct advantage to the homemnkor who can't allow the usual cooking times for foods. Pressure saucepans of the various models and sizes already are reaching the market. Pressure indicators and general styles vary, and it is most important that each homemaker who buys one understands her particular saucepan. She must read manufacturer's directions carefully and follow them to a "T." She must learn to cook with one eye to the kitchen clock, for a few minutes extra means overcooked foods, and a few minutes under the time specified means undercooked. She must read the directions that come for the care of the cooker, too, and be careful not to damage the cooking Indicator or dent the sealing edges. Pressure saucepans come in two, three and four quart sizes. Consider your needs and choose the size you will use often. If you are in the habit of using larger pans, perhaps you will better enjoy a larger pan of another type. If you decide on a pressure model, be sure the pan is made of heavy metal, has sturdy handles and a 'flat bottom with straight sides. The last sugar stamps in ration books will have been used by most Iowa housewives before long. On May 1st a new stamp will be designated and since there are no more sugar stamps beyond sugar stamp number 39 "spare" stamps will be designated. Since those stamps are in book 4, all book-holders are advised to be sure'to keep them because they will have use for them later this year. GAME BOARD TO PRINT NEW OUTDOOR MAPS The State Conservation Commission, at a recent meeting, voted to increase the number of highway and outdoor maps now being printed from 20,000 to 40,000 copies. Although, the maps will not be ready for distribution until the early part of April, pro-printing requests indicate that the original number would not meet the public demand. The new maps have a full scale up-to-date highway map on the face with a centennial cover design. The obverse will have several maps showing the state parks and recreation areas: public shooting grounds: major fishing waters, as well as a map showing the distribution of the various game birds and animals in the state. The new maps will bo distributed through the State Conservation Office at Des Moines, Iowa, upon request; cost free. Herald Want Ads bring results! SUGGESTS RATION FOR NURSING SOW, LITTER In mixing a good ration for a nursing sow and her litter of pigs, E. L. Quaife, Iowa State College swine specialist, suggests 1,200 pounds ground corn, 400 pounds ground,oats and 400 pounds of supplement. This mixture can be self-fed to the sows as soon as they have been brought up to full feed—about 10 days after farrowing. The little pigs can use this mixture too, although Quaife says he likes a little less corn, more oats and more supplement for the pigs. He'd use 1,U00 pounds ground corn, 500 pounds ground oats and S00 pounds of supple ment for them. Many of the top Iowa swine producers start their little pigs out on rolled oats when they are from a week to ten days old. When the pigs are month old, shelled corn can be added to the rolled oats and the pigs can have a supplement. By weaning time, the pigs can be on the ground corn, oats and supplement ration.

Mr. Farmer, because... PICKET LINES have taken the place of PRODUCTION LINES! don't blame your Implement Dealer! Y OUR implement dealer had planned and expected to have his display floor filled with new implements and tractors weeks ago. And we had planned to make them—had told our dealers and our farmer customers they would have new equipment and plenty of Bervice parts for the 1946 spring work. And we had hoped to sell these machines at no advance in price. R«al Production Had Started When the war ended, our organization bent every effort to increase production, with the result that in the last months of 1945 machinery was being built in very substantial quantities. Here are a few figures: PRODUCTION ITIM NOV. 1«4! DEC. 194 J Tractors 7,271 7,432 Combln.i 2,345 2,526 Cultivator* 3,482 3,30t Hay Loadors 209 912 •Plow. 6,115* 6,702* •Plows are. mad* In our Canton and Chattanooga Works, which are not on strike. January production was 7,747 plows. Both your dealer and we were encouraged by this production picture at the turn of the year. But the strike changed all that. As you know, the CIO United Farm Equipment & Metal Workers of America called a strike in ten of our plants, on January 21,1946. What It Tho Strlko About? Wages are a basic issue. At the time of the strike, Harvester employes were among the highest paid workers in American industry. When the strike began, the average hourly INTERNATIONAL earnings in the ten plants, not including overtime, were $1.16W. If present wage proposals are adopted, this figure will become $1.33H per hour. When the strike began, negotiations were broken off by the Union on the issue of compulsory union membership. The Company has no desire to weaken the Union. It recognizes certain reasonable needs of the Union. But the Company does oppose compulsory unionism. It feels strongly that an em­ ploye's membership should be a matter of his own choice. Material Costs and Price* Roliof Wages and materials are the great costs of operating our business—together they consume all but a few cents of every dollar the Company takes in. Wages are obviously going to be high—and nobody knows just how high material costs will go. In the face of rising costs of materials, the Company does not see how it can pay the wage increases recommended by a Government fact finding board until it has definite and satisfactory assurance from the Government that reasonable price relief will be granted to the Company within a reasonable period of time. This matter is of such importance that it will not be discussed here, but will be covered by future advertisements devoted to both prices and profits. Speaking for our dealers and ourselves, we can assure you that no customer is more eager than we are to resume production. We are doing and shall continue to do everything in our power to bring about a fair settlement as soon as possible. HARVESTER
