When we telephoned beforehand to ask if we might come to see her and Mr. Hcmmes she admitted that she would not be home on the afternoon we had chosen. So we wait-: ed u n t i l the next day.

''The mailbox always has been down at the corner, nearly half a mile away," she said exasperatedly. She must have taken lots of steps on that road, at that. She has lived on the same place since she was a year old. She undoubtedly has other occupations she didn't mention, HAVE AN APP1E TOMMY?, MY MOTHER ALWAYS 1 SAY.P :"AN APPLE A DAY, KEEPS TUE DOCTOR AWAY THAT'S PARTLY TRUE WORACE,BUT IF YOU WANT TO KEEP THE DOCTOR AWAY YOU NEED BESIDES TRuiT- GREEN VE^TABlES, FRESH AiR, EXEROSl.GOOD SOUND SLttP AN' WHOLESOME AND TASTY , BETSY ROSS BREAD/ Like his friend. Tommy is always glad to share a good thing with others . . . and he's not fooling when he says that Betsy Ross enriched bread helps keep folks healthy. It's the swell tasting bread, recommended by the Committee on Food and Nutrition of the National Research Council, and our brand is loved by. all young Americans . . . and older ones too! Wise mothers serve this energy building bread with every meal. ALL BETSY ROSS WHITE BREAD IS ENRICHED ACCORDING TO GOVERNMENT SPECIFICATIONS . IS BETTER BREAD too. We found out, for example, that Mr. Hcmmes has b e e n township trustee for 25 years. And he, with V. V. DeBour, carried the War Chest list around the neighborhood last fall. Yes, "This is one of the good school they made their quota easily, districts in the county for anything like that and the Red Cross," he reported. Can Meat if Butchering Is on Schedule Butchering may fit into the work schedule this month and Miss Lucile Buchanan, county extension home economist, recommends canning; at least part of the meat. Home-canned meat provides mealtime variety or a quick meal on short notice, she pointed out. Almost any cut may be canned provided it's fresh, in good condition and handled in a strictly sanitary manner throughout the entire canning process. Beef should be allowed to hang, just above freezing, 3 to 5 days before canning to increase .tenderness. Pork handles better after it has cooled at least 24 hours. To make the canning operation easier, the meat may be cut and boned the daj p before. Wipe it with a clamp cloth, remove the bone and gristle and leave only, enough fat to give flavor. Cut steaks about 1 inch thick and a width that will .permit slipping into jars easily. Chops and steaks should be boned and the bones used in making broth. Cut roasts into a size that will fit easily into jars. Meat scraps may be ground and made into patties or added to broth and canned as stew. Less tender cuts usually are cut into pieces about Hi inches thick. In order to conserve jar space it is desirable to preheat meat. It may be done in broth or by broiling or roasting in dry heat or by heating in an open container. A short precooking period shrinks meat about one- third. Meat may he processed in a pressure cooker or in a boiling water bath. In using a pressure cooker. Miss Buchanan emphasized, wait until the steam flows freely from the petcock for 10 minutes before closing it; otherwise, the pressure is no indication of the temperature. Begin to count time when the pressure reaches 10 pounds; then process for l',i hours, or process at 15 pounds, pressure for 65 minutes If a pressure cooker is no available, processing in a boiling water bath for 3Vj hours at rapid boil may be successful The canner should have a tight- fitting lid and a rack that wil allow 1 inch of water under thj TEDDY AND DONNA--Donna, the "educated duck," gossips with her close friend and boon companion, Teddy the Spit/., as she sits in the doorway of his backyard apartment in Detroit.

Proccss- ng time in the water bath is 3V-. hours after the water reaches lively jumping boil. During the processing the lids jars and cans which have jcen completely sealed will bulge. Upon cooling the lids .isually will return to their orig- nal shape. If they do not, Miss Buchanan advises pushing the into shape. Completely seal bail-fastened jars immediately after taking them from the processing utensil but do not attempt to tighten self-sealing lids, for the seal will be broken. In using home-canned meat, boil or roast it at boiling temperature for at least 10 minutes before tasting. Meat for sandwiches or salads should be boiled or roasted and cooled before using. Specific directions for various cuts of meat arc given in a leaflet, "Directions for Home Canning of Beef and Pork," available at office. the county extension Inoculation of Seed Boosts Bean Yield Inoculation of soybean seed results in a decrease in the percentage of oil produced, tests by the Iowa agricultural experiment station show, but the inoculation has increased the yield of beans per acre enough to more than offset the percentage decrease in oil--you get more oil per acre from inoculated beans.
