The lake dredging program, suspend- I ed by the State Conservation Commission in 1942 as a war emergency action will be resumed about April 1st, providing necessary dredge repair mater ials are available. The two state owned hydraulic dredges have been in dry-dock at Storm Lake, in Buena Vista County and Lake Cornelia, in Wright County, since the shut down Dredging will be continued on these two lakes. $80,000 has been made available by the legislature, a part of which* will be used for the necessary parts replacements before actual pumping begins. The "Iowa 25 Year Plan," in 1933, recommended dredging of 38 natural lakes to increase their recreational value, with major emphasis on improving fish environment. During the seven years the dredges were in operation, programs were carried out on Lake Manawa, Black Hawk Lake and North Twin Lake. Before the war the dredge at Storm Lake had been pumping three years and approximately one million cubic yards of silt has been removed from one hundred acres, of this 3,000 acre lake. Lake Cornelia was at one time recognized as one of the best bullhead l fishing lakes in the state and conserva- ' tion officials believe that the dredging program will result in the restoration of fishing in Cornelia to its old time excellence.

Some 125 million people subsist on less than 2,000 calories a day; another 28 million on less than 1,500 calories a day: and countless others, on as little as 1,000 calories a day. In the United States we're getting around 3,400 calories per person per day. For the hard laboring farmer, that's not too much in the way of calorie consumption according to Iowa State College nutritionists. But for the office worker—man or woman—that's a thousand more calories than we need. In fact, we'd be healthier people if we'd cut down the calorie consumption that amount, but watch our • protein, vitamin and mineral diet, the nutritionists point out. We can do that by eating protective foods—green and yellow vegetables, milk, eggs, meat, fruits and whole cereals. We can well afford to cut down on refined cereals, fats and sweets. These are the ones highest in calorics. And these are the foods most needed in starving foreign lands. Cutting down on fats, cereal foods and sweets means cutting down on the pies, cakes, rolls, bread crackers, spaghetti, noodles and fried foods. In their place serve fruit or ice cream for desserts; roast, bake and broil instead of fry; eat more vegetables in place of the spaghetti and macaroni dishes; eat whole cereal breads in place of the refined loaves. Well, not only be a healthier people ourselves for cutting down the calories of our diet. But we'll be a happier people for knowing that we're doing out part in providing food for the starving countries. WORK FROM RIGHT TO LEFT. Home economics experts feel that, ideally, work flows from right to left in a truly efficient kitchen. (Left- handed homemakers, this is not for you) In a kitchen planned for this kind of work flow, the draining portion of the sink would be to the left of the dish-washing portion. Now, for the left-handed women— a sink with a dralnboard on either side is ideal, so that all the family can use it easily. Left to right is your best bet.
