Protect Rubbers and Galoshes From Heat, Light and Grease Light, heat and grease are the three bug-a-boos when it comes to. prolonging the life of rubber footwear. Miss Elizabeth Peterson, extension clothing specialist at Iowa State college, explains that rubbers and overshoes should be kept in a dry, dark, cool place when they're not in use. And when they are being worn, they should be kept away from heat and grease. Oil, grease and tar make rubber swell and get weak. They should be removed at once with soap and water and then wiped quickly with dry cleaning fluid. · The fluid should not be left in contact with rubber more than a minute or two, as it also weakens rubber. Sunlight combines the two enemies, light and heat, which weaken and crack rubber, making it sticky. Summer rubbers not in use now should be washed with water and soap, dried, stuffed with crumpled paper and stored in a cooi, dark place. CUT 18 INCH TREES It is wasteful to cut young trees for lumber, extension foresters at Iowa State college say. Sound and thrifty trees, they say, should be left until they reach 18 inches in diameter or more. Dsage Orange Posts Last for Many Years Osage orange, commonly called hedge, has a well-deserved reputation as a good fence post wood, but there are other woods that will give many years of service without treatment. Odel! Julander, Iowa State college extension forester, states that hedge posts, unpreserved, have an average life of 45 years. Black locust posts average 30 years; red mulberry, 35 years; red cedar, 30 years; catalpa/'lS years, the heartwood portions of white oak, 17 years; and the heartwood portions of burr oak, 12 years. Other woods such as the red and black oaks, hickories, ashes, maples, box elder, elms, butternut, cottonwood and willows are not considered durable when in contact with the soil. They should not be used- for fence posts unless they are given a preservative treatment before setting so as to prolong their life by many years and save costly replacements.
