Dairy products and eggs, produced on most farms in ample quantities for home use. are also must.s for every good diet," Record Help Planning The county over, according to Miss Mary E. Loughead of the University of Arkansas College of Agriculture, Extension Service records show that farm families and village families with a little Inncl available are using home-produced food • to. improve their diets. "Records kept from year to year help succeeding year. "But even if you have kept no such records this past year," says Miss Coleman. "you - can make '•workable-.plans for this coming year. First, make estimates of the food your family will need. You can calculate this by finding the amounts of- the different foodstuff each person should have. Farm families who need help at this stage will v raid the family food supply budget prepared by the Extension Service a vluable aid. Miss Loughead says. Copies of the budget are available at the county extension office. Can Estimate Amount '••Then"''on the basis of these figures, estimate how much of this food can be produced at home economically. Using simple arithmetic, this can Farm Woman's News Corner How to Shop i'or Towels As an aici to women shoppers who plan to take advantage of January white sales five points have been prepared to guide them in the selection of towels. For durability a towel must have a firmly woven ground thai will hold the liny surface loops in place, take the strain of pulling, and serve as a sponge for water taken up by the loops. Hold the towel in front of a .strong light. If only pin holes of light seep through, the ground cloth is closely woven; if splotches of light seep through, the ground weave is too loose to take long wear. Best wearing towels have a ground warp of two-ply (thai is. t : ,vo yarns twisted into one). Absorbency Ls as important a factor as durability. The more loops per square inch of drying surface, the more absorbent the towel. For maximum absorbency the towel should be made of soft, evenly spun cotton with a minimum of twist in the yarn. White towels are move absorbent; pastels next; deep tones, least. Hems should be turned back neatly, stitched firmly with fine stitches, and corners backstitched to prevent unraveling. be worked out in the terms of rows of vegetables, gallons of milk, and so on. For instance, for a family of five, consisting of two adults and three children, about 950 gallons of milk fo" drinking, cooking, and making butter and cheese will be needed. Two good cows will supply this amount of milk the yenr round. Similarly the necessary amount of butchering to be done, rhe size of the chicken flock, the layout of the vegetable garden, and even the year-round canning schedule, can and should be planned right now/ The family will thus be able j to have an adequate year-round diet without an undue strain on the family pocketbook. Miss Loughead savs. Selvages should be firmly woven, ' .... '•*- '• !..'< , because they are subject to greater wear and tear than any other part. To insure color fastness, inquire if the towel lias been vat dyed. Another point; about color i.s ro keep in mind that the colored lines and bands increase the cost, only -lightly; solid colors add considerably to the cost price; and i'lcral and .scroll patterns, which have to be woven on Jacquard looms, are the most expensive. Pood is more economically util- i/pri by the body when vitamin Bl Ls included in a diet extremely deficient in this vitamin, as is oiten the case in areas in which pellagra is common. This has been shown by research work conducted by the University of Arkansas College of Agriculture, through its department of agricultural chemistry, Miss Cora Lee- Coleman, home demonstration agent, reports. A lack of the vitamin in the diet produces a marked reduction in appetite. Rice polish, the college has shown, is one of the most abundant sources of vitamin Bl. and Arkahsns is particularly fortunate in having large supplies of it from milling rice. Prom 15 to 30 per cent of rice polish mixed with white 'flour produces palatable breads and biscuits. Including rice polish in bread and biscuits would not only increase the amount ol" vitamin Bl in the dally diet, but it would also add appreciable amounts of such mineral elements as calcium and Iron.

ThK bureau's research and .service activities are directed toward development of more efficient practices throughout the industry. The report cites the proved-sire breeding -.system as the most efficient prod it ct i o n improvement method developed in the Industry. That conclusion was reached on ihe basis of a cooperative, .nation- si ration agent. Quoting the extension agricultural engineer. Earl L. Arnold, the agents said that native materials available over large areas of Arkansas include rough lumber from home-grown timber, for framing; hand rived shingles from cypress, oak. and. cedar for the roof; sand und gravel for concrete, and rock for foundations, all of which are obtainable in this locality. The ability, however, to use these materials correctly, according to Earl L. Arnold of the University of .->.! kansas College of Agriculture, depends to a large extent on longtime planning.
