J "Why, with PowerAite. ol eour»e" WATCH FOR IIG PowrAiro ANNOUNCEMENT Christian Science Churches The subject of the lesson-sermon in all Churches of Christ, Scientist, for Sunday, May 5, 1946, is "Everlasting Punishment." The golden text is "Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you, Clee.nse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded." (James 4:8) Selections from the Bible and from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy comprise the lesson-sermon. One of the Bible citations reads; "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. Flee also'youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart." (H Timothy 2:15,22) From the Christian Science textbook 1B the following: "Divine Love corrects and governs man. Men may pardon, but this divine Principle alone reforms the sinner. Sorrow for wrong-doing is but one step towards reform and the very easiest step. The next and great step required by wisdom is the test of our slncerelty,— namely, reformation." (pp. 6 & 5) Two slices of bread and l'.i teaspoons of fats saved daily by each Iownn will conserve enough food for shipment overseas to save thousands of lives this year in Europe and Asia. This is the daily per person goal set by the Iowa USDA council. On a fum- ily-of-flve basis the daily saving asked for amounts to two-thirds of n loaf of bread and 2 Mi tablespoons of fats and oils. This daily food conservation will enable each family to save one life this year. For the state this means half a million starving people in Europe and Asia can be kept alive. Drouths Abroad. The war and severe .drouths in Africa. South America and the Far East have cut world food production 12 percent below prewar levels. In Europe production is down 20 percent. That's why 100 million people will be starving in Europe this year. Several million more may die of starvation in India. In China thousands die by the roadside every day. In the first flush of victory many of these countries relaxed food controls just as we did. They were hungry. They ate heavily into their meager reserves. Now they face cruel shortages the remainder of 1946. Heavy imports of food are now needed in Europe merely to sustain the present low standard, let alone increase it. The worst time will be from now until the next harvest is in. After that it all depends on how much is produced this year. U. S. Eats Well. Compare the situation overseas with that here in the United States where we are now consuming food at the daily rate of almost' 3400 calories per person, 11 percent above what we were eating before the war. People in half of Europe are existing on less than 2,000 calories and in some areas less than 1,500 calories a day per person. To contribute our share in President Truman's famine emergency food program, Iowans are asked to substitute potatoes, poultry, eggs, fresh fruits and vegetables for the 40 percent saving planned for wheat products and 20 percent saving in fats and oils. Contact Organhations. County USDA counc ils have been directed to act immediately in perfecting organizations which will be responsible for the food conservation program in each community. These councils are asking the cooperation of retail and wholesale food distributors, restaurants, bakeries, churches, schools, civic and service groups, labor organizations, women's clubs, veterans' organizations and all other groups which can carry the message of need to their members. Specific recommendations as to how the necessary savings can be made have already gone out to public eating places and to housewives. Conserve Grain. To conserve feed supplies the state committee has suggested that any corn carrying excess moisture should be cleaned, sorted and recribbed, or placed in small temporary' cribs or silos. Farmers are also advised to balance their livestock and poultry with available and visible feed supplies and to market hogs at lighter weights. The marketing of cattle as soon as they approach reasonable finish for grade is recommended, along with careful culling of poultry flocks. By Iowa State College Garden Specialist. Keep a wary eye on "shipped-in" vegetable plants. Make sure such plants are labeled "certified" before buying them. Plants not certified may be diseased and produce very little or nothing. Locally grown plants are more likely to be safe than shipped-in plants that are not certified. * » • « * Some gardeners waited too lung to plant their peas. Peas in Iowa should • be planted between April 1-15 to be : most successful. A cool-loving vege- | table such us peas must be matured be- I fore hot weather sets in. ! . « . . . i i In the well-planned garden, small j successive plantings are made of some | vegetables. This method insures a j continuous supply of vegetables for j table use much longer than when one I large planting is made. Continue to j make small plantings of lettuce and j radishes every two weeks up until ) May 15. Parsnips vegetable oyster, carrots. ; beets, potatoes, turnips, cabbage and . some others can be stored successfully ! in caves on the farm or in drain tiles [ by city gardeners. Turnips for stor- j age should be planted in late summer 1 for maturing this fall. |. Carrots and beets for storage should j not be planted until late June or early July. .Very small beet and carrot plantings should be made in April ; when they are to be used only for the ] table during the season. These vege- ! tables become too large and woody for j storage when allowed to grow all j season. I Parsnips and vegetable oyster, how- j ever, should have a full season to ma- ' ture. Only the late maturing varieties ! of common cabbage should be used for ! storage. Chinese cabbage should not i be planted until July. • . . . . i Cabbage is susceptible to many kinds of disease. One of the most common [ is called "yellows" disease. It becomes noticeable in nnny gardens after warm i weather sets in. The fungus organism • lives over in the soil and enters the cabbage through its roots. Plants attacked are a lifeless, yellowish green color and arc usually twisted and lopsided in appearance, and the normal slowed up. The lower leaves start to drop prematurely. The only solution for the gardener is to plant the "yellows" resistant varieties this spring. Some of these are Marion Market. Globe, and Wisconsin All-Seasons. ***** Production of peas is likely to be increased if they are provided support. Wire poultry netting or brush placed between the double pea rows is satisfactory. The peas are easier to pick and are cleaner than when on the ground. Before placing the support, it is well to cultivate lightly between the double rows to destroy weeds. Peas are rather delicate and must be handled carefully. SUGAR!SUGAR! Allow pastures to get a good start before turning livestock on them. Us- usually it is not wise to start pasturing bluegrass before the middle of May.

Gopher control has been in full swing the past two weeks, and the little pests seem to be uncommonly numerous. PI inkers with .22 caliber rifies are cautioned to be extremely careful where they point their guns. Some of the more ' powerful .22 slugs are dangerous to humans and livestock up to a mile. When shooting gophers, be sure to secure the farmer's consent to trespass on his land, and also make sure to carry guns unloaded and taken down or contained in a case when in a car on a public road.
