It is evident therefore, that cows giving milk need a large supply of water daily. A good sized cow, producing a large amount of milk, will drink 150 to 300 pounds of water per day while the same cow, when dry, may t.ot drink over 50 to 70 pounds of water daily- Too often ice has to be chopped from the watering trough in winter or the cows have to go a long distance from the barn for a drink. Under these conditions a cow does not drink all the water she should have and her milk production is lowered. It is important that cattle, especially heavy-milking cows, have access to water several times a day, or at will. Individual drinking cups furnish the best system several times a day, or at will. Individual drinking cups furnish the best system lor watering cattle where water can be used in that way and the bam does not freeze. They cannot be emphasized too strongly, for the increased production of milk soon pays the original cost. Hot water added to the trough will remove the chill and cause the cattle to consume more water. Many dairymen have found this practical where the trough is located outside the barn. Cows that nre kept in a shed and are stabled for feeding and milking only will produce more milk if there is running water in the shed at all times. Water is cheap and more use should be made of it. The inexpensive things like water too often arc neglected in feeding. RESOLVE TO SAVE TIME FOR FAMILY ACTIVITIES Every Pennsylvania homemaker wonders whore to find time to do extra things. Why not resolve in 1938 to look for these extra minutes, suggests Miss Mary 'Anderson, home economics extension representative of Fayettc county. Extra minutes will give the homemaker time to read, time for community activities, time to spend with flowers or other hobbies, and most important of all more time to spend with her family and for relaxation. By eliminating unnecessary tasks, a. few minutes may be saved. Aik yourself the question, "Is it essential to the happiness of the family that I iron underwear and sheets?" , Perhaps there are tasks which may be done by other members of the family. Boys may keep the wood box filled, and girls may help to keep the house, dusted. Each child may make his own bed and keep his ARE.-THE. Mo$f.

Study methods for doing various household duties. How many steps or motions may be eliminated by better arrangement of equipment and furniture? Because we have always done a job a certain way is no reason why it needs to be done the same way today. Perhaps the time taken to wash dishes may be cut down by scalding instead of drying all the dishes with towels. It is fun to try out new and different meth- ods. A kitchen tool or cleaning aid may help to do a task in less time. Maybe a ' rearrangement of equipment wilJ give extra minutes. Saving one hour a day means saving 15 days a year. All this extra time may mean the difference between being a good housekeeper and a good homemaker. Begin the new year with a few resolutions and plan to save bolh time and energy for your family. Safer Equipment For Mining Being Used Everywhere An important step forward in the cause of safety In coal mining in the recent adoption by prominent manufacturers of coal-minini; machinery of the policy of producing and marketing types of equipment which have been approved by the Bureau of Mines, Department ol the Interior, at the same price as equipment not bearing such approval and which in the past hat been marketed »t lower prices. Recently .T prominent builder ol coal cutting machines has advisee the Bureau of Alines that in me future several types of Government- approved coal cutting machines will be sold at the same price ns the less safe non-approved equipment, thus doing away with substantial price differential that formerly existed much to the detriment of the introduction of Govornmcnt-approvec equipment In gassy minus. Also, a manufacturer of loading machines has advised the Bureau that the policy of his company is so to plan its work as to make none but Government-approved types Their present price on Government- approved machines is so near that of the unapprovcd types that there is very little incentive for the purchase of the less safe type. The Bureau of Mines has been investigating coal machines for more than twenty-five years in order that coal operators may have equipment available that Is not apt to ignite mine cas and cause a mine disaster. Therefore, these progressive steps in the interest of safer mine equipment ore appreciated anc commended. The future safety of mechanized mining depends to large extent upon the use and adequate maintenance of Govenrment- approvcd machines. It is hoped that other mining machine manufacturers will take simular steps to eliminate any price differentials now existing between unsafe and Government-approved equipment.
