WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 26, 193S.' THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLE, PA. PAGE FIVE Notes of Farm And Home Prepared by R, E. Carter. Jfenn Accnt: MiM Mary Anderson. Jlomc Economics Representative. SAVE ELECTRICITY WITH FLAT BOTTOM UTENSILS Home makers who are planning to Install electric ranges are asking the questions, "Can we use our old cooking utensils?" Kettles and saucepans for use on an electric range should have a bottom surface which will absorb the greatest amount o£ heat from the unit, says Miss Mary E. Anderson, home economics extension representative of Fayettc county. The tops and sides of utensils should be designed to lose a minimum amount of heat into the room. Experiments have shown that a saucepan with a shiny polished bottom reflects heat away from the contents. Thus it requires more electricity than a ro-Jgh, dull, dark bottom for the same amount'of cooking. Saucepans and kettles should be reasonably flat on the bottom with no bulge up or down and no rim, especially a sharp, narrow one which raises it above the unit.- Utensils made from metals which will resist warping for the greatest time may be the most economical, that is, for stoves with a unit that requires flat bottom utensils. For some types of heating units the bottom surface of metal pans, such as aluminum, steel, and copper, should be unpolished, rough, and even better, black. It seems to be of no advantage for enamelwarc saucepans to have black bottoms. The size is important also. Utensils which cover the unit and are not over two inches wider than the unit are most satisfactory. If the unit is wider, the contents of the kettle will heat no faster. A utensil that is much wider than the unit loses heat from the side and top. The time required to start cooking depends on how much of the bottom of the pan is receiving heat directly from the unit. Utensils with straight sides and well-fitting covers around the rim are best suited for cooking on the electric range. PLANT GROWERS USE NEW SELECTION OF TOMATOES Plants for the early crop of tomatoes usually arc started in March but seed should be ordered as soon as possible. Some new early strains and selections recently have appeared on the market. These show an attempt on the part of plant breeders to find an earjy tomato that will produce large yield of smooth red fruits of good flavor. To replace Earliana there are Stokcsdalc and Pcnn State. Stokcs- dale is suitable lor staking while Penn State is a drawf plant selected for close spacing in highly productive garden soils. Pritchard is the most popular single variety grown in Pennsylvania for staking. It appears to be replacing John Baer and Bonny Bess although these older sorts probably outyield any other variety grown generally in this area. Grothcn Globe is large and suitable for picking in the green-ripe stage and for shipping. Marglobe probably is still the best general purpose tomato. Hutgers is being used increasingly on account of its rather deep red color and productiveness, but it matures rather late. Early Baltimors has done well compared to the common selection of Indiana Baltimore. Ponderose and Oxheart are used almost entirely by home gardeners. These varieties have a tendency to crack and not to ripen well around the stem. Oxheart is better when grown on stakes. 4-H CLUB CAN' JOIN )UV FATHER AND SON WEEK Attention of Pennsylvania 4-H clubs in agriculture is called to the annual Father and Son Week celebrations suggested by the State Y. M. C. A. and scheduled for the last week of February. Many 4-H clubs may find it convenient and appropriate to hold a Father and Son Week banquet or celebration during that period. In no place of our life are fathers and sons so closely associated in the combined activities of home and business »s on our farms. 4-H club work also contributes much to character building among rural youth. For both of these reasons it seems appropriate that the 4-H club groups should focus attention upon the father and son relation. Falher and Son banquets may also serve as good opportunities to celebrate the 4-H club achievements of 1937 and an opportunity to plan for a program and the reorganization of the group for the scasorf of 1938. Especially will it be helpful to invite boys who were not members of the neighborhood 4-H club in 1937 and 1o have them bring their fathers as well.

Foreign Powers Warned Against Supplying Arms EW United Press. TOKYO, flan. 20--Japan must seriously consider the question of foreign powers supplying arms to China, Foreign Minister Koki Hirota said yesterday to Parliament. Hirola made his statement in reply to Viscoi t Takchiko Sonoda, who in questioning the foreign minister, paid - tribute to the attitude of the United States in the Chinese-Japanese conflict and added: "If Great Britain insults Oriental races and fails to respect Japan's position in the Far E;st, Japan would be unable to guarantee the continued existence jf Britain's rights and interests in China. Britain's suspen- :' m of a plan to send a fleet to Asia was timely. Britain should refrain from unnecessarily arousing tKe Japanese people." Hirota, in response, said that the supply of arms reaching China , through British Hong Kong was only a small part of tho total. He continued: "In view of the fact that the Japanese government has decided not to deal with the Chinese national government it must seriously consider the position of third powers regarding the supply of munitions." In' answer to another question Hirota said that a'formal declaration of war on China was a possibility but that it depended on future'de- velopments. Viscount Kiko Okoclii asked Prince Fumimaro Konoye whether the cabinet or the fighting services represented the dominant factor in Japanese politics. "The cabinet is the center of politics," Konoye replied. "It is unfortunate if frictions arise. But the government must drastically control individualism and liberalism if they are a bad influence on the people."
