FRIDAY, DECEMBER T, 1951 FARM NEW REVIEW USDA Awaiting Results of Farm Policy Review Controversial Rural Survey Conducted by Local, State Agencies WASHINGTON, Dec. 7. VP)— The Agriculture Department said this week it will be several weeks, possibly a month, before results of its controversial "grass roots" survey of farm programs will be known, A summary of 48 state reports and more than 3,000 county reports ol the survey Is being made by the department at the suggestion of a special subcommittee ol non-department farm and church leaders which advised the department on the project. The survey has been termed the •"Family Farm Policy Review" by Secretary Brannan. Conducted during the summer and early (alt by local and state agencies of the department, the survey was designed to get suggestions on how federal farm programs might better serve fimall, low income farms. The survey ran into sharp criticism from the Farm Bureau Feder ation, the National Grange and some other farm irroups. They contended the department was stepping outside its proper field in soliciting possible legislative action Some of these critics also declared the department was seeking-ways of extending its control over agricul- i ture. : The department called the advisory subcommittee In last week to go over the state and county re•*•*• and to make recotnmenda- SOTM as to how the department might make best use of suggestions for program changes and improvements:" On the subcommittee are rcpre- . sentatives from the National Grange, the National Farmers Union, the National Council of Farm- «r Cooperatives, the Association of Land Grant Colleges and Universities ajld various Protestant and Catholic church groups Interested in the welfare of rural life. The Farm Bureau was invited to send a representative, but It declined. WHAT WE EAT NOW The things we're eating in abundance today reflect the hi|h level of employment and Incomes, according to the U.

Print Removed from Flour, Feed Bags Makes Fabric Usable at Home Living Yule Tree Needs Your Help More than an X should mark the home grounds' E|»t if you're planning to have a live Xmas tree this season. Lay down a thick mulch over the carefully selected location now. The mulch will keep the soil workable for Ihe transplanting after the tree has served Its decorative purpose Indoors. Martin L. Dnvey. Jr., head of the Davey tree experts, says get- ling a Christmas tree that will do duly, both Indoors and out, Is an elegant Idea. However, helping the trne survive the rigors of late season moving calls for rare and planning. The mulch of peat moss, salt hay or leaves will keep the growid workable as well ns more hospitable for tree roots. Location selected should provide growing space for a forest type evergreen—one that eventually will grow to large proportions. For instance, Norway spruce, commonly used Christmas tree, often readies a branch spread of 30 to W feet. Most other popular Christmas trees have similar growth potentials. If your landscape cnn't support an arboreal giant, forget the living tree project, advises Mr. Davey. If you do go ahead, several other precautions Are advlseable. 1. Buy your tree from a reputable nurseryman or dealer, 2. Make sure it has an adequate earth hall, suitably burlapped, around the roots. 3. Place H In a bucket or tub indoors and see that It els frequent watering. 4. Do rwt overly extend Hfi stay in the heated house. 5. Once It is transplanted, replace the heavy mulch over the root area. The coast of Maine has BO many small Indentations that. If all were measured, the .stiue would have a 3000-mile coastline. Dr. Douglass JoinsM.ofA.

Print removed from some types of flour and feed bags gives homemakers a fabric that can be usable around the home. When removing the lettering use a chlorine bleach to take out the lost traces.

Roll up the bag nd let it stand several hours. Then •ash and boil, if necessary. And kerosene has been found ef- ective. Soak the bag In kerosene vernight. Then wash—first in lukewarm water, then in soapy water— nd rinse thoroughly. Or cover the black print with lard >r soft petroleum jelly, rubbing the irease into the fabric thoroughly. Leave overnight to loosen the black irint. Wash in soapy lukewarm wa- ,er, and rinse. Still another method Is to boil jags in water with sodium hydro- .ulphite or other dye removers which may be bought at drug stores. Any homemaker gets a lift from renting something useful and at- ractive out of the various odds ami ends she may have around the louse.

Homemakers sometimes make the mistake of using too strong a bleach 'or too long a time when removing the black lettering. This weakens the fabric. Mrs. Helen Barnard, Missouri University clothing specialist, gives rinsed. You may nave to use > mild several methods which have been used successfully to remove the lettering: Scrub bags with hot water and laundry soap. This often removes nearly all the ink. The rest usually disappears if bags are boiled in soapy water for half »n hour, and Follow directions on the package, and rinse thoroughly.
