We Pay All Phone Charges Dept. of Agriculture License No. 42 ing the most damage to it, reports Miss Lucile Buchanan, c o u n t y home demonstration agent. Good handbags are items that will be higher in price and even difficult to get before the war is over. The leather in one large handbag will make a pair of aviator's gloves. * * * A good leather bag is one that has uo fabric trimming or edges that take a lot of friction. To renew t h e m , white ones may be cleaned like white leather shoes, while natural colored ones may be cleaned with saddle soap. Patent leather bags are cleaned wilh patent cream and suede with a rubber sponge, while art gam sometimes cleans colored leather. When putting bags away, the home agent recommends putting some crumpled tissue paper in the toes and wrapping them in a soft cloth. Silver and gold evening bags will not tarnish if they are wrapped in black tissue paper. Gloves are small accessories that can be costly items in the budget. Homemakers always should fit them on the way the salesperson does, by working on first the fingers, then the thumb and then the palm. Gloves wear better if the fingers ai« comfortably long and the palm wide enough. * * * The home agent advises taking them off carefully, pulling them gently into shape, blowing into the fingers and laying them in tissue paper in a flat box. One should be careful to wash only gloves marked "washable," and gloves except chamois or doeskin should be washed on the hands. Proper treatment of still another item, unbrellas, includes allowing them to dry before putting them away to prevent mildew and rust. A silk umbrella needs an occasional shower bath and cleaning with a soft cloth, while oiled-silk' umbrellas may be cleaned by washing with mild soap and water, rinsing and drying in th« shade. Dairy Calves Require Vitamin A Feed Now Young dairy calves weighing less than 100 pounds should receive special feeds to supply them with the necessary amounts of Vitamin A during the winter months. : The best source of Vitamin A is green grass, but since this feed is 'not available during the winter, whole milk or good grades of legume hay are used to supply most of the requirements. If the ration includes skimmilk instead of whole milk or if the hay is of poor quality, some other substances must supply the Vitamin A. Dwight Espe, Iowa State college dairy specialist, says that feeding a standard animal grade of cod-liver oil is recommended to supplement a poor ration. This oil can be purchased through feed dealers. Since cod- liver oil is rich in Vitamin A, about one tablespoon per animal each day is sufficient. 4 DAY SALE!
