Pearl Reynolds fr'anatipfWaiffl IEAM, EGGS & POULTRY PHONE 90 Dried fruits are low in cost and high in food value. But they are so often prepared by wrong methods that their true flavor is not discovered and you hear such comments as "I hate prunes!" and "What, nothing but stewed apricots for des- i sert?" The average cook either soaks dried fruit too long or cooks it oo much, say home economists' at Iowa State College. Some- imes the dried fruit is so ten- er that it needs only a little oaking and no cooking at all o make it palatable. Yet the lousewife will soak prunes or pricots all night and then boil hem vigorously until they lose oth shape and flavor. In general, it is best to wash he fruit carefully, soak it for n hour, and then cook it in the ame water for half an hour, ery gently. Use only enough •ater to cover. Avoid adding too much sugar. A pinch of salt usually brings out flavor, and for variety a slice of lemon or orange may be stewed with the fruit.

Some salesmen would like you to believe it is the whole story of automobile economy. But drivers ought to know better. For, the fact is, it's way down the list. The big items of car economy are low first cost, low up-keep cost and low depreciation. Savings here can make a great deal of difference in cost per mile. Gasoline mileage is more of a talking SJnt than an economy factor. Check up and you will find that the difference between 17 and 19 miles a gallon is less than $10 for a whole year's average driving (8400 miles at 18 cents a gallon). Here are die big items that make the Ford the most economical car; More value for every dollar you pay. Lower cost for repairs and service. Long life. Slow depreciation. Quality means economy and the 1936 Ford V-8 gives you more real quality than any other low-price car. No other car under $1645 has a V-*8 engine. No other low-price car has Center-Poise Riding, safe, sure mechanical brakes and Safety Glass all around at no extra cost. A t\.

There must be a reason DIXON MOTOR CO. YOUR FOfED DEALER Iowa farmers who have seed corn of a good strain which does not germinate well may expect a satisfactory yield if they determine the exact germination and increase the rate of planting in proportion to the percentage of kernels which do not germinate strong, suggests H. D. Hughes, farm crops head at Iowa State College. For Example, s;eed which germinates only 75 percent strong should be planted 25 percent thicker than one would plant if the germination were 100 percent strong. The Nebraska Experiment Station reports the results of careful studies made in the dry season of 1931 in which seed corn germinating 100 percent was planted 3 kernels per hill, seed germinating 75 percent was planted 4 kernels, and that germinating 60 percent was planted 5 kernels; all gave exactly the same acre yields. Stand May Vary The number of stalks per hill varies considerably when imperfectly germinating seed corn is planted thick, but it has been found that this does not necessarily mean a decrease in yield. Studies on uniformity of planting were continued through a 14-year period, comparing the results from planting 2 and 4 kernels in alternate hills and 1, 3 and 5 kernels in adjoining hills with a uniform planting of 3 kernels. It was found that the yield from the different uniformities differed only by a little more than 1 bushel per acre. But to get satisfactory results from the planting of seed corn that does not germjinate perfectly it is important that one shall know very definitely just what the percentage of strong germinating kernels is and increase the thickness of planting in just that proportion. The same lot of seed should be tested several times in order to be sure of its exact value. Poor Stands—Low Yields Planting low germinating seed at the rate at which goodj seed will give maximum yields is certain to give poor results. Low yields are more often associated with poor stands than with any other condition. The Iowa Station a number of years ago found with a total of more than 45,000 individual ear tests that when planted at the regular rate of 3 kernels per hill, the use of ears from which one of the six kernels tested showed a week germination decreased the stand 6 percent and the yield 3y 2 bushels. Planting ears which showed one dead kernel among the six decreased the stand 11 percent and the yield 6 bushels per acre. Four Kernels Beats Three Rate of planting studies continued through a 5-year period in different parts of Iowa indi- FARM PLAN CONFUSING Much grief lies ahead for the Secretary of Agriculture and others charged with the administration of the new "farm relief" law, if one may judge from recent press dispatches and the expressions of those most interested in the farm problem. It is aserted by Stanley P. Morse, executive vice-president of the Farmers' Independence Council, that scarcely a third of the nation's farmers will benefit at all from the new law, which was hastily passed by Congress as a political expedient. It is generally understood that, as under the AAA, the large land owners — the big landlords — will receive the cream of the benefits, while the small farmer, the tenant farmer, the share-cropper, and the ordinary farm laborer will receive little, if-any, of the vast sum to be distributed under the new act. In a statement recently issued by Mi-. Morse, after a series of conferences with farmers of the middle west and New England, he said: The insincere, unworkable farm program just enacted by a vote-hungry Congress makes no effort to meet the real issue. It is an injustice to our farmers and an unwarranted burden on the taxpayers. "What most farmers wahit is to have the government govern efficiently, reduce taxes, qui its interference with business which reduces the demand for farm products, and stop trying to control agriculture." It is really tragic that the farm problem, like some other questions which are of high importance to the country, musl continue to be made a football of politics. The new law is vague and confusing, and those responsible for its administration are faced with what appear to be almost insuperable difficulties.

Iowa cate that in northern Iowa planting perfectly germinating seed 4 kernels per hill increased the acre yield 5 bushels, while in north central and south central Iowa the thicker planting resulted in a 3 bushel increase. In southern Iowa planting more than 3 kernels decreased the yield slightly. Planting 3 kernels as compared with 2 kernels increased the yield approximately 10 bushels per acre in all parts of the state. YOUR HEALTH Question: What is disease? Answer: Disease is any departure whatsoever from good running order; the (failure of any part of this machine to work in harmonious adjustment with the rest; "dis-turbance," "clis-order." "dis-comfort," "dis-ease"—etymol- ogy alone makes the meaning of the word manifest. Question: What is health? Answer: Health is not a material, not something to be put into or taken from the body. Neither is disease a "demoniacal possession"— as held in ancient days—nor an entity, a something which entrenches itself within the body and demands forcible eviction, as medical speculation has been presuming on one hypothesis and another ever since the possession-of-devils idea abdicated. Health is the sum of bodily process working together in natural harmony; the balance of vital energies; the cooperation of tissue with tissue, of organ with organ; the cooperation of system with system; the due and proportionate discharge of each special function of the entire organism—conditions which, as long as operative, render the body not only automatic, self- regulative and self-adjusting to a remarkable degree, but even self-restorative—a phenomenon less marvelous only than the original creation of life.
