Homo I Economics Representative GOOD FARMING PRACTICES REDUCE EROSION LOSSES By following proper farming practices, farmers not only improve their richness of their soil but also reduce losses of fertility from erosion. The liberal and intelligent use of lime, manure, and fertilizer to obtain good crops for harvesting and heavy sods for nlowing down long has been recognized as of fundamental importance in building and maintenance of soil fertility. i Proper soil management indirectly reduces loss of soil from both sheet and gully erosion. On rich soils, sod rot systems aic more dense and tend to hold the ground in place better. They also increase the amount of organic matter and improve the water holding capacity ol the soil. This reduces run-off water which would carry valuable topsoil from the field. Many poorly managed fields are impoverished today as a result of improper agionorr.ic practices. Because fertility was reduced, further losses resulted from erosion. Bare, unprotected cropland washes most. Rotations which leave the ground bare as little as possible help reduce erosion. A rotation of corn, oats, wheat, and hay leaves the ground bare twice as much as corn, wheat and hay. Such cover crops as Italian or domestic rye grass on land that otherwise would lie bare over winter furnish protection against erosion and also provide organic matter ior plowing under the following spring. Even when land is kept in high state of fertility, some o£ the rich topiioil is often lost through washing. For such farms, strip farming is a simple and practical means for reducing erosion. OSE FRIVOLOUS TOUCHES TO BRIGHTEN WARDROBE When the first tantalizing warm days creep in between (he blustering of Winter, we feel the need of something new and different to perk up our wardrobes. Many of us find \ve have little to spend, but with some imagination and lots of work we can do wonders with what we may consider cast-offs. Miss Mary E. Anderson, home economics extension representative of Fayette county suggests a few ideas for perking up the wardrobe. Take a plain dark dress to start wStti as a foundation. Shorten the sleeves and hem, remove all the trmming around the neck, and make a belt from the extra material cut off at the hemline. Now look around for scraps of figured silk, plain bright colored fabrics, and bits of lace, pipings, or niching. See what you can do with these in combination with your dark dress. How about a touch of spotless white in the form o£ edging, piping, collar, or bow at the neckline! Or a bWght scarf lucked in ascot Jashion at the threat? Or a gay topper oC plain or printed fabric to draw over the head and tie in a soft bow or twist in a graceful knot at the waistline? Even a raggedy anne flower fashioned from bits of brilliantly colored materials would add a note oJ frivolity io a sedate dark dress. Tuck it itl'lhe waistline-i£ you wish to be different ."or if not, high on the ·boulder. M-you are tired of the old neckline, slash the dress" down the center front or side front and insert a dainty edge of shirred lace. Or cut out a shaped piece that is becoming to your face and throat, and finish the edges with m neat facing. Now play with a variety of vestees in tailored pique, sheer organdy, pin tucked net, or tiers of fussy lace, according to the occasion for which you are going t wear the dress. You may change the whole appearance of a too snug dress by dashing it down the full length ol the, center front Insert a length o£ softly draped chiffon, or a length of pleated print, or a length of contrasting colored fabric to give the effect of either a dressy or tailored redlngote. Be kind to your wardrobe, Miss Anderson urges, and give it a dasti ot spring magic. In turn it will give you a lift. Says Religion and Business Are Keys To World Peace crystallize and close the holes if the weather turns cold and the feed is not removed from two or three days. Always remove the crystallized sugar when the temperature rises above 55 degrees. The supply of Iced needed for each colony varies. It is not unusual fov a colony having little honey to use us much as seven pails of syrup. Unless water is available within a half mile of the apiary, some should supplied. An excellent method is ;o place n tub of water in a sunny ocation protected from the wind. Cork or pieces of wood floating on ihe surface will prevent the bees from drowning. Adding a small amount of salt will provide the bees 'ith this necessary mineral. Circular 141, "Beekeeping in Pennsylvania," which covers the problems o£ the beekeeper from the time the bees are obtained through marketing the honey, can be obtained without charge at the Agricultural Extension Office, its the Courthouse, Uniontown. BEES MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL FEEDING Although winter bee losses have been small, many colonies will starve before there is sufficient nectar to supply the needs of the brood unless considerable feeding is done. Providing feed keeps colonies from starving and enables weaker colonies to rebuild their strength. An excellent sugar syrup for the bees can be made by mixing two parts sugar with one part water. Dissolve the sugar in hot water until the syvup 5s clear and free of crystals. Colonies having less than three full frames of honey need sugar syrup. · Cool the syrup to room temperature and Icfcd it to the bees toward evening. Pour the syrup into a friction top pail with eight holes punched in tt« lid. Invert the pall over th« inner cover Of the hive, A hall- gallon pail is best. The bees will take the syrup from the feeder any time that the temperature is above 55 degrees F. Some of the syrup will PITTSBURGH. Mar. 16.--The key to world peace lies in religion and in business, according to Hoswell P. Barnes, rccreary of the Department of International Justice and Good Will of the Federal Council ot Churches * j In Pittsburgh attending the "Campus Conference on Religion and Life," Barnes declared: Churches and busmcts can provide the means lor mleinational intercourse after governments have come to a stone wall and normal negotiations have ceased. Next August in Europe, a conference ol churches will consider war threats in Europe and the Fur East and place before governments concrete proposals for handling colonial and international problems. A former Presbyterian mjiiister in New York, Barnes piaihed (.Tie, Catholic* Church for its contribution in maintaining order in a troubled world. He said: "The univoisahty of the Catholic Church is a great contribution to maintain order in a world of increased anarchy." Three Pittsburgh colleges--University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Institute of Tef'inology and the Pennsylvania College for Women--sponsored campus conference. the Andrew Hawk -Buried.

Allegheny Special Election Likely Off Until Fail HARRISBURG, Mar. 16.--Lieutenant Governor Samuel S. Lewis indicated today that the special election to fill the vacancy in the 45th senatorial district of Allegheny county, caused by the resignation of Senator P. J. Henney, probably will be postponed until the fall election. He asked the Allegheny county commissioners, Democratic State Chairman David L. Lawrence and Allegheny County Republican Chairman Frank Harris for their opinions of when the special election should be called. Lewis made public the answer received by the commissioners, ot whom two are Democrats. They pointed out that the expense of a special election would be ''not less than $25,000," and for the sake of economy unanimously recommended that the Lieutenant Governor issue a writ for the election at the September primary or the November municipal election. Allegheny county Republican leaders, it is understood, also desire thft special election postponed until fall, although Harris has not officially advised Lewis. Gen. Stark Day Designated. CONCORD, N. H., Mar. 16.--The New Hampshire house of representatives has passed a measure providing for the observance of June 17th as "Gen. John Stark Day."
