FIX) WEYBATICH and Daughter Uses for Burned Potatoes Told by AbbyLMarlatt When potatoes become black during cooking', there are several things that can b« done about it, according to Abby L. Marlatt, director of home economics at the University of Wisconsin, under whose super- vision students experimented with potatoes. If the potatoes are put to soak in cold water for several hours before cooking, they will be much whiter than if cooked without soaking. Not salting the potatoes until just before serving helps to make them white, too. One of the very best ways to keep potatoes from blackening is to boil them in a mixture of milk and water, using one-third milk- and two-third water. The liquid can be saved and used later for soups, sauces or gravies. Vinegar is often recommended for preventing of discoloration of potatoes in cookery, but the home economics students found that the vinegar hardens potatoes so much that they are unappetising.

It is especially so under present conditions and is likely to be even more necessary in the future. If you have not been in the habit of keeping a farm record, why not start one this year? It requires only a few minutes' time each day and it may save a great deal more time at the end of the year or some time when particular information is needed than is required to keep the entire record. But, best of all, it is a big help in determining how to make the farm business more profitable.

And they are classed as turkeys de luxe on the market. Mrs. Ray C. Hemming was horn on a farm near Thornton and has always lived on a farm and been thoroughly identified with country life. She is an active church worker in Thornton and much interested in the home project work of the Farm Bureau. Mrs. Louise Roberts Morphew was born on the farm where she now lives and her grandparents were among the first settlers at Rock Grove, Floyd county. She specializes in canning fruits, . meats and vegetables and is interested in project work and anything that adds to the enjoyment of farm life. Mrs. 3. F. Hartwlg, born on a farm, is back as a farm home- keeper after several years of experience in professional life as a school teacher, doctor's assistant and a course as pathological technician at the University of Pennsylvania. She is now specializing in home making for her husband and two daughters on a farm near Nora Springs and--$he likes it. Mrs. Flo Weyrauch lives on "Oak Ridge" farm in Lime Creek township, a 320 acre tract which she rents from the Keeler concern. She is an example of a successful woman farmer and necessarily has to have hired help. She plans the farm work as successfully as she does the housework. She says "she enjoys meeting and beating the knocks. HOW TO KEEP MEAT Meat should" be kept at 45 degrees fahrenheit or below, the same as recommended for milk, according to the bureau of home economics. A bacteriological study of meat held at different temperatures shows that the development of bacteria in samples of meat increased markedly after 50 degrees fahrenheit. CLOSING-OUT SALE F. P.
