Criswell, Memphis, Na- Livestock Men Warned About Disease Little Rock — Livestock producers were alerted today against a serious reproductive disease of cattle and sheep which now appears to have spread to every state in the nation. The disease, vlbrlontc infection, lakes a heavy toll of livestock prof- Its through breeding failures, according to Ihe American Foundation for Animal Health. "Vihrionlc infection Is caused by a tiny perm which nHacks roa-s and ewes, causing sterile animals or the loss of calves and lambs" tlie Foundailon reports. "Diagnosis is difficult, a vlbrlon- Ir. injection can eally be confused with other cattle and sheep breeding diseases such as brucellosis, trichomoniasls, salmonellosis. pas- leurellosls and llsterlosis. For this reason, when owners have breeding troubles In their herds, they should have the animals Riven blood and cultural tests. Tf the veterinarian finds the trouble Is yibrlonlc Infection, steps can then be taken to deal with the problem on a herd basis, "Bulls and rams are believed to be the chief spreaders of the disease. New cows and ewes should be (ested. too. Safely measures include segregating heallby animals from the Infected ones, and guarding against the spread of the. disease." H.D.CLUBMEMOS fcy Mr.. Gertrude B. llnlima* (Horn* Demonstration Agent) Poultry J-.1VS Mrs. O. R. Redford of the FlaJ, Lake Home Demonstration Club proudly reports on her chickens.

During cold weather she warms the water and keeps the liens in the laying house. Community Improvement The first state-wide community Improvement leader conference is set (or March 10 and II at the Marion Hotel In Little Rock. We would like to stress that this Menu of Summer Meals Best Guide for Garden Schedule To prepare a production schedule for a Liberty garden Is a matter of arithmetic. Take carrots, for example. How often do you serve carrot* to your family? Once a week, twice a week, or three times? It should not be hard to decide that. The harvest of carrots from a single sowing will last In top condition at least eight weeks.

It's Wasteful Stretch Window curtains are due for sprlnj? cleaning shortly.

Nylon, orlon and spun curtains need no reshaping or stretching an frames. Cotton and rayon marquisettes, howr-ve.r come out well if dried on stretchers, but cannot be stretched to their original size because laundering causes shrinkage. Tests have been made showing curtains to split when shaped to original sra. The curtains shrink most. In the first laundering but shrinkage continues with several successive launderings. Loads rvf nee Lettuce has long been the favorite salad green because of Its good looks, crisp tender texture and mild flavor. Americans eat lettuce because they like it—and they've been entinu ;»qj(f ilid..more of It for the past 30 yoSiis" In 1!!1B only BOW carloads of commercially - grown lettuce were shipped to market, compared with about 100,000 last, year. The average American now uses, n pounds of lettuce a year compared (o 5 "i pounds in IOIB. When a bip. head of lettuce sells for a dime—the price in ninny retail markets lately—it's a treat for the pocketbook as well as the table. One great virtue of lettuce is that it makes so many different and nutritionally valuable foods appetizing. Just by keeping company with them. Thus, lettuce has encouraged the use of more raw fresh fniiU and vegetables in salad. To step up vitamin C in meals this month, how about citrus salad — lettuce and sliced oranges o. grapefruit segments server! with a dressing marie with lemon or grapefruit Juice?

By sowing early and late varieties at the same lime, you can have a longer harvest. This is advisable for sweet corn, because late varieties do better iti Ififc summer and enrly fall weather.
