WEDNESDAY, MARCH 27, 1046. THE POSTVILLE HERALD, POSTV1LLE. IOWA. PAGE SEVEN. uctt&u For the Herald's HomcmaKcrs by Iowa State College Home Economists Eighteen Ways To— CHEESE IT Iowa 's a state of cheese cowards. Wc cat our way bravely through processed and ripened Cheddars and cottage cheese but hesitate to venture Into the field of "real" cheeses—the Swiss and Llmburgcr. Liderkranz and Brie. "A half pound of cheese, please" could britiK you anything from a mild. H >ft yellow product to it sharp, bluc- vcincd slice of flavor surprise. Chances are it will bring you some f»rm of the first—American cheddar, cither mild and "processed" or tangy ;ind firm. That's what the homemaker usually expects. What she may not know is that one of the other 300 cheeses may be just the thing to accent a particular meal. WM. C. BAKKUM CHIROPRACTOR In I'ostvlllc Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays JJOSEPH B.

P. A. SOW OATS LIGHTLY TO HELP LEGUMES Specialists at Iowa State College pass along this etude to cheese buy- inn. It classifies the main types of cheese. Perhaps you'll want to clip the list and refer to it when you shop. It may encourage you to come home with a creamy Liderkranz or a tangy Parmesnno, says Vomer Nielsen of the Dairy Industry Department at Iowii State College. Best Known Cheeses. SOFT. Unripened: Cream. Cottage. Neuf- ehatel. Ripened by Molds: Camembert, I Brie. Ripened by Bacteria: Limburger, Liderkranz. SEMI-HARD. Ripened by Molds: Gorgonzola, Roquefort, Stilton. Ripened by Bacteria: Brick, ftlun- ster. HARD. With Gas Holes: Emmenthal, Swiss. Without Gas Holes: Cheddar. Edam, Gouda. Very Hard: Parmesano. Not all of these cheeses can be found in small-town markets all the time, but one of the reasons for this is the lack of demand by consumers for anything other than processed or ripened cheddar and cottage cheese, Nielsen says. If a groccryman is asked for other cheeses, he will make an effort to stock them. There usually are several of these cheeses in n good- sized market at various times. And also introducing the flavors of these cheeses are some of the glassed cheese spreads on the market, which combine cheeses with other ingredients. In describing some of the cheeses which the homemaker may find in her market from time to time, Nielsen says Limburger and Liderkranz cheeses arc very similar. Both become more highly flavored during the ripening process, and expel a strong-smelling gas. Those cheeses become soft during ripening and make a strong, but flavorful spread for crackers or dark bread. Gorgonzola, Roquefort and Stilton are Italian, French and English versions of one type cheese. Perhaps you know it as "blue." It's a blue-veined cheese, tangy in flavor, and popular as an accompaniment to fruit and crackers and as an ingredient in salad dressing. According to Nielsen, it also is good for cheese sauces. Emmenthal and Swiss are similar. Both are sweet and nutty and can be identilled by their pale color and gas holes. Cheddar, the cheese every homemaker knows, is sold either ripened or processed. Processed cheeses, while soft and palatable, are extended, nnd flavor is less pronounced. Therefore an unprocessed cheddar makes a better sauce. Families have become used to eating inadequately ripened cheese or "green" cheese, particularly in this variety. Make sure you have a fully ripened cheese if you want the best in flavor. Edam is the cheese traditionally sold in shape and color of a large tomato or apple. It is nearly round and Is surrounded by a red coat—paraffin colored with a certified dye. And Parmesano, so hard that it is usually ground, is the sharp cheese loved by Italians. Particularly good with soups or spaghetti, ground Parmesano is usually available in packages or shakers In the grocery store. If price control is to be extended, it should be limited to one year and definite provision should be mode for termination or suspension of controls on commodities when supplies come into reasonable balance with demand, Edward A. O'Neal, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation, declared In his testimony before the House Banking and Currency committee concerning extension of OPA. O'Neal said farmers want u definite program for removal of price controls and are not interested In a permanent price control economy. Officers of the Farm Bureau have been authorized to oppose extension of the Price Control Act unless these provisions are Incorporated in the pending legislation. "Wc hear complaint that food prices have gone up. Many delight in citing the increase since 1939. Very few point out that in 1939 farm prices were lowest in 35 years, except during the depression of the early thirties," he asserted. "Even in 1945, the factory worker was able to buy more food for an hour's work than at any time in our history. An hour's wages in manufacturing industries last year bought six and one-half quarts of milk, compared to about five quarts in 1939 and two and one-half quarts in 1914." Almost without exception, he said, an hour's wages in the manufacturing industries had more purchasing power in terms of food during the war than prior to the war. Expenditures for food in relation to consumers' Incomes are lower today than before the war. "I want to make it perfectly clear that farmers are not asking for higher returns. They simply ask to receive their money in the market place instead of in the form of payments from the federal treasury. They want to get the government out of the grocery business." O'Neal said personal income taxes could be reduced by 17 per cent if consumer food subsidies were elimi nated and the savings passed on to the taxpayer. The subsidy program has grown until today it is estimated that, for an average urban family of four, consumer subsidies amount to over $62 annually. Turning to administration of price control on agricultural commodities the speaker said it is "imperative' that Congress rewrite the Bankhead Amendment to make certain its purposes and provisions are no longer evaded or mullified. "We insist farmers be informed of changes in policy sufficiently in ad vance to allow them to make their adjustments in production. We insist al so that no policy be adopted which may react unfavorably on the price of a farm product after production ar rangements for the ensuing year have been made by farmers." He said the price control bill should be prepared to include: (1) definite provisions for eliminating consumer subsidies; (2) control of wages where inflationary danger exists; and (3) provisions to correct the basic causes of inflation. Tight legume seed supplies emphasize the Importance of stretching them as far as possible by good seeding practices. Legumes arc so important to the maintenance and building of soil fertility that they should be seeded with every possible acre of small grain. To make this possible It may be necessary to reduce the seeding rate, according to Iowa State College agronomists. Cutting the sowing rate of oats, used as a companion crop, and application of phosphate fertilizer will help to get good stands from lighter seeding rates of legumes, the agronomists say. Sowing two bushels of good germinating, clean oats per acre gives almost as big a yield as a heavier sow- ng rate. But it makes a lot of difference in the competition the crop gives seedings. In trials at the Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station the average loss of yield from a 2-bushel sowing rate was only 3 bushels per acre. Prosphate fertilizer applied at the rate of 200 pounds per acre for red clover seedings and 300 pounds for alfalfa may make the difference on many soils between obtaining and not obtaining a stand of the legume, according to the agronomists. Another suggested seed saving practice is preparation of a good firm seedbed. Sowing the seed after disking and covering it not more than Mi inch deep by rolling or harrowing Is recommended. CLEAN PLOWING NEEDED IN CORN BORER CONTROL Clean plowing to cover the trash, an essential measure in corn borer control, can be obtained by careful coul ter and jointer adjustment on plows nnd the use of trash wires, say Iowa State College agricultural engineers, And in general, 16 nnd 18-inch plow bottoms do the best job. Both the notched nnd plain type coulters can bo used satisfactorily But the new 16 or 18-inch sizes cover trash better on plows which save sufficient clearance for their use. It's also important to have coulters sharp so they will cut the trash. The jointer should be sot with the point close to the coulter. This practice will prevent clogging with trash If trash wires arc used they should be attached to the jointer shank or to the drawbar of the plow. Two wires may be used per plow bottom if the trash is heavy. Number nine wiro works best and should be in lengths of at least 15 feet. Many farmers have found that the left-hand disk jointer reduces plow draft as much as 30 percent. It also provides a good trash coverage and gives the advantages of the jointer without the difficulties of the mold board type.

To get a good potato yield this season, Iowa State College horticulturists urge home gardeners and farmers to plant early, to use large chunks of seed and to plant in fertile soil. Potatoes should be planted as near the first of April as possible. Late plantings may result in a reduced yield. A big seed piece provides food for rapid growth and assures a better chance of healthy plants and greater yield. On the majority of Iowa soils, seed should be cut 10 pieces to the pound and planted 12 inches apart in 3-foot rows. About 1,200 pounds will be required per acre. Seed should be planted at once after cutting. It is advisable to treat seed, too, with one of the several approved preparations for dusting and dipping seed. These preparations may be used with safety if directions on the containers are followed. Potatoes do best in a fertile or mellow soil. Some well-rotted sod, straw or manure below the furrow slice provides room and food for the roots and increases yield. Fresh manure, unrolled straw or sod is not desirable. Gravelly or sandy subsoils limit yields and promote scab and roughness. Early spraying also is essential to yields. A piece of cheesecloth or a thin sack may be used for the application of home-mixed bordeaux dust or poison. Bordeaux may be used for the control of leafhoppers. It promotes early leaf growth and prolongs the life of the vine. In small home gardens bugs may be knocked into a bucket of suds and a half cup of kerosene. Parents with children of nearly the same age may envy those parents whose children are spaced farther apart. They think that big sisters and little brothers always agree while their own small children have many quarrels. But the parents of big sister and little brother often tell a different story. Sixteen year old sister can scarcely endure the dirty hands and rumpled hair of ten year old brother. To her he is a "pest" and a "drip." The boy ridicules his sister's airs. "She puts on too much," he says. And he resents her attempts to boss him around. Of course there are rare and wonderful days when brothers and sisters get along beautifully. There are encouraging moments when one brother will stoutly defend another at school or on the street. However, it requires several years for children of any age to learn the hard lessons of give and take. Grown people of the community require laws, courts and policemen to help them get along together. How much more difficult, then, for inexperienced children to live peaceably together under the same roof. The interests and needs of each child are very different from those of every other child in the famiiy. "During these years," says one writer, "parents will need patience and endurance." Iowa wool growers should receive about the same price for their clip this year as they did last year. Last year the average price in Iowa was about 43 cents per pound. Clean water is essential to good health and growth in baby chicks.

Iowa that give life to America! Y OU'D get an eye-opener any time you took a look at The Milwaukee Road's Mannheim-Bensenville freight yard just west of Chicago. This newly improved yard permits shipments to by-pass the congested Chicago terminals. It and other yards, strategically located at junction points, speed the flow of traffic to and from every community on the railroad. Tonnage-wise, the biggest part of The Milwaukee's job is moving goods—anything from a heifer to a car of coal, from a comb to a giant combine. Demobilization of troops still rates first with us. This traffic has been particularly heavy from Pacific Northwest ports. But as the weeks go by, you can expect the complete restoration of the kind of service that has made The Milwaukee Road a favorite among travelers and shippers alike.
