Farmers Will Get Garden Assistance With sights set for an unpre cedented 20,000,000 fruit an vegetable gardens in 1943, the vie tory garden committee of the U S. department of agriculture i seeking the co-operation of al civic groups, farm and urban which can lend a hand and it addition is appealing to commer cial and industrial concerns hav ing national contacts and distribu lion facilities that can be o service in the campaign for more and bigger gardens. Among the latter is the Inter national Harvester c o m p r . ' n j which, M. C. Lawson, manager o the company's Mason City branch announced, is acting on u direc request from the committee fo assistance. The company, Mi Lawson says, has already charte n program of help, in which it wil enlist ns many farm equipmen dealers as possible. The Mason City branch of thi company, according to Mr. Law son, is now canvassing' the com pany's leaders in the 14 countie: served by the branch. The first step in the program he says, is to get into the hands o prospective gardeners, both on thi forms and in the towns, conic,, of an 80-page illustrated book entitled "Have a Victory Garden." The book, a thoroughgoing manual on successful-gardening in all phases from planting to harvesting and storing, published by the company but containing no advertising, wil} be available a thc'stores of farm equipment dealers joining in the -victory garden effort. Dealers will be supplied also with material for publicizing th victory garden campaign and wil be asked as well to lend their per sonal assistance in organizing their communities for best results in growing and harvesting fruit and vegetables on the largest pos sible scale. The dealers will be asked, for example, to help solve the problem oE getting urban garden spaces plowed and of obtaining utmost gardening efficiency on the farms. In this connection some dealers are already reminding farmers that, in view of the shortage o farm help, a lot of slow, tiresome hoeing can be avoided by planting such vegetables as potatoes turnips, beets, beans and peas in long rows in the same fields will the farm's regular row crops, so that the vegetables can be cultivated along with the principa crops and in the same way. * * * Dealers enlisting in (he campaign will offer their services to county agents, Triple-A representatives, Farm Bureau officials, agricultural schools, 4-H and Junior Farmer clubs, and whatever other organizations in their communities unite in the victory garden campaign.

Better Roads WOMEN DISCUSS CARE OF SICK Seek to Prevent Wartime Epidemics Homemakers of Cerro Gordo county decided this month that they can best help to prevent wartime epidemics by making sure their children and other members of the family are in good health each morning before they start their work. Educational' co-operators representing every 4-square- mile area in the county reached this conclusion at a scries of training schools on "Home Care of the Sick." In view of a possible .shortage of doctors and nurses for the duration, more care of (he sick must go on in the home, Miss Lucille Buchanan pointed out. For that reason it is essential that the homemaker learn the simple procedures in home cave of the sick, she added. Since prevention of epidemics is all-important,* the women discussed symptoms of cold and other communicable disease and ways 01 preventing their spread. If a member of the family shows symptom: of illness he should' be kept a home and if not markedly improved within a few hours, a doctor should be consulted. In the case ot communicable diseases such as influenza and scarlet fever, the honfomaker should isolate the patient and protect herself and others from the disease. She can help to keep herself physically fit by eating proper foods, getting the required amoun of sleep and allowing time for recreation. Miss Buchanan demonstrated the making of a bed and giving a bed bath. The women discussec sickroom equipment that could be improved from materials available in the home. PLAN EFFORTS TO FIGHT GRUBS 4-H Boys To Have Demonstration Here Cattle grubs steal an average of 2 pounds of meat a head and 2 cents a pound on loin cuts on from 25 to 30 per cent of all cattle slaughtered. Not only does the grub cause an actual loss of meat that is trimmed away and depreciate the value of the meat, but it also injures the hide reducing the average price of the hide at least 1 cent a pound. Milk production is also reduced rather heavily. The 4-H club boys of Cerro Gordo county will have a demonstration at the Jacob E. Becker and Sons plant Saturday morning at 10 o'clock, at which time Prof. Charles Gunderson of the extension service will demonstrate grub control. V V · £ According to Marion E. Olson, county extension director, tins is one of the major projects in the 4-H livestock clubs of the county this year. The 4-H boys win take an active part in conducting demonstrations a n d helping eradicate the grubs on their own farms. It is also planned to hold other demonstrations over the county so as to reach a large per cent of farmers of the county with this information. * * * Arrangements have been made y the war production board to allot Rotonone for controlling the ;rub and this will be available for this region through the Decker company at Mason City, which is :o-operating with the 4-H club 3oys and the extension service in the grub eradication program. A circular on eradication of. cattle grubs is available at the county extension office.

Due to the icy condition of the roads and lack ot suitable horse flesh Ed Mathre volunteered to pull the sled with a tractor. No tractor with a headlight was available so flashlights were used to light the loud and noisy journey of ten miles, which finally ended at the hospitable home of the Earl Deans. The night was quiet and beautiful but cold and everyone was more than ready for the warm lunch which was prepared by Mrs. Dean and Mrs. Mathre. According to some of the enthusiastic 'youngsters who attended the lunch was super and consisted of hot dogs, doughnuts, pickles, cocoa and marshmallows. After lunch various games were played and according to one of the "Dads" present it was almost impossible to break up the party at 1 o'clock.

USE SOYBEANS IN '43 GARDENS Victory Gardens Meat Alternatives Can Be Provided Victory gardens may provide meat alternates this year as well as to help stock the vegetable storage closet. One of the most valuable vegetable proteins, the soybean, is gaining favor with both gardeners and cooks. The vegetable soybean variety Banesi is best suited to Iowa conditions, Miss Lucile Buchanan county home economist, reporls' This variety is especially adapted to refrigerated locker preservation. After the harvest is gathered and the kitchen takes over (lie job, homemakers will find that soybeans supply many necessary food elements. Miss Buchanan says that soybeans contain iy, times as much readily usable protein as ordinary dried beans and peas. They also contain more fat and less carbohydrate than the common bean. Soybeans are rich in vitamins and minerals, too, containing anemia-preventing iron, calcium and phosphorous for bones and teeth, and the vitamins riboflavin and thiamin which promote general good health. Ascorbic acid is found in soybean sprouts, often used in chop suey and other Chinese dishes. Besides preparing home-grown soybeans as a vegetable, homemakers may find soybean /lour milk, curd, refined oil for salad dressing and cooking purposes, and soy sauce for flavoring, at the grocers. Sprouts may be mixed with other vegetables for salad too. Buy War Savings Bonds and Stamps from your Globe-Gazette carrier boy. TOP PRICES PAID FOR HIDES AND FUR WOLF BROS. INC. 308 5th S. W. Labor Costs Not to Raise Price Ceilings According to information received from the economies section, Iowa State college, Ames, on the business outlook, it stated that the inclusion of labor in the computation of parity did not raise parity sufficiently to bring any increase in meat ceilings. Present meat ceilings are sufficiently high so that hogs, cattle and lambs are selling above parity even with labor costs included in the computation of parity price it was slated. ' The bill, therefore, did not alter present prices of hogs, cattle or lambs. The greatest effect would be on eggs, which would be raised around 31L- cents per dozen. Tho including of labor in parity would raise feed prices and would mean that the present ceilings on corn prices would have to be revised up. Corn loans would be increased about 10 cents higher. Feed prices would reduce feeding ratios and reduce the incentive to feed corn to livestock at a time when our need is for more meat milk and eggs and sucli narrowing of feed ratios might seriously impair our food for freedom program. * * * Adding labor to the parity formula would also raise the price on wheat. This would serve to keep many farmers raising wheat who might otherwise shift to crops we may need more. According to the report from the economists, an important publication of the labor in parity idea is its effect on the post-war era After the last war farm wages fell faster than prices of things farmers buy.. Inclusion of labor in the calculation of parity in the depression years would have reduced parity prices in those years when higher prices were Badly needed. The conclusion of this war may see a similar situation, with falling wages as men are demobilized from the army and return to the farms. If it does, the inclusion of labor in computing parity will result in the parity level falling faster and farther in the postwar era than if it were not included. VACCINATION SCHOOL Dr. H. B.
