"This does not mean that vegetables should be entirely overlooked during this period of food rationing," Mr. Ludeman said.

It will be one of the aims of our club to make vegetable gardening more successful this year." Mr. Ludeman suggested raising food for the family table, plus enough for home canning. He said that experts on gardening would advise Mason City victory gardeners on their problems. Holding that the hardships o£ rationing may be a blessing in disguise, Mr. Ludeman described the benefits of garden work to'the individual. To conclude he quoted from a poem thus: ". . . h e who makes a garden Works hand in hand with God. --o-Father Kieffer Speaks at Hamilton Assembly; Committees Are Named The Rev. W."
