At least the forecast in the clothing field for the coming year indicates that higher prices arc ahead even though more clothes will be in the stores. But the cost of living, plus keeping a family well clad, will challenge most homemakers to keep the trusty sewing machine in operation. And that's when a sensible arrangement for keeping sewing equipment within reach comes in handy, says Lucille Rea, extension clolhing specialist, Iowa State College. Place for Everything. A homemade sewing cabinet, can avert many a trying moment while you look for your best pair of shears or try to locate that spool of matching thread. And, after all, when you organize your sewing materials they take up much less space. Miss Rea hastens to add that if you already Have a pretty good place to store sewing equipment, you may just wish to hint to son or Dad that they make a few improvements—much along- the line offered in the ideal cabinet. For example—have enough partitions so that the drawers will remain neat and .organized. These partitions, however, should be flexible enough to accommodate equipment of different sizes and kinds. Plan a special nook with felt lining for the shears so they won't become nicked or scratched. Shallow drawers are best for many items—thread for example— so the spools do not -become stacked. Black and white thread should be chosen for use by size number, Miss Rea advises. Therefore, it should be stored on spindles so the number can be easily seen. Grooves'or troughs are fine for colored thread though. Extra duty thead comes on a larger spool than the No.'50 mercerized, so plan a large groove for it. Right Thead Helps. Selecting the proper thread for each sewing purpose if often a puzzle. However, size 80 cotton is excellent for sewing on batiste, organdy and linen. Size 70 cotton is to be preferred to size 50 for sewing on fine cotton prints. The stitching is finer. Shirtings, sheetings, ginghams or other materials for general household stitching require size 60 to 80 thread, while heavy muslins, crash toweling and woolen goods lake size 40 to 60 cotton thread. As for nylon, it serves best when you're working with nylon "materials. Silk thread is a joy to sew with, particularly on wool fabrics, but it's hard to find these days. As for mercerized cotton, it is a softer thread useful for working with colored fabrics. Size 100 to 120 cotton thread is good for basting pleats. You can preps the pleats in place and the basting marks won't show. In the event you ever sew on very heavy woolen materials, tickings, trousers and similar garments, choose size 24 to 30 cotton thread. The sewing cabinet, to be on display to Iowa homemakers wherever the Iowa Farm and Home Labor Saving Show travels, boasts a good storage container for buttons. It also has a deep drawer for filing patterns. Keep standard ones which have proved successful. Directions for making a similar sewing cabinet will be made available at the exhibition of the Labor Saving Show in your area. Sixty-six million bushels of grain crops went into .making your breakfast food during the past year, according to figures released by the USDA. UNDERSTANDING IOWA CHILDREN MEMORIES OF CHRISTMAS. Wo are divided at Christmas time between loyalty to Santa Claus and allegiance to the religious significance of Christ's birthday. . As adults we keep the distinction fairly clear in our minds. Children, es-, pccialiy young children, seem to confuse the two ideas. In future years they will have memories of Christmas. A tin horn or a much desired toy tractor or a gun may stand out and give Christmas its most significant meaning. The religious meaning may have faded because they did not understand it very well in the first place. Guns and tractors are more easily understood by a child than religious meaning. A family custom of reading the Bible Christmas story on Christmas eve lingers in the minds of many who otherwise would have forgotten the religious memories of their childhood. Not just sitting down and reading off the chapter in an absent-minded hurry, but making quite a ceremony of it. This leaves memories. • After the greens are up and candles are lighted, could not some one read the old story slowly so children can follow? They can understand the Bible version better than we.think. We do not have to be trained dramatic readers. The story of the Christ-Child is simply told and may be read as simply. Do not make the reading too long, for children grow restless. Read only the old, best known part of the story. If the entire family can gather for this reading each year, memories will carry the true meaning of Christmas. PEANUT BRITTLE ...

Iowa has a surfaced all-weather road leading to every incorporated town within its borders. The development of all-weather roads in Iowa is pointed up by the recollection that the first all-weath er road in the state running from Burlington to Mount Pleasant wa» completed in 1849. This first all- weather road was laid with goodl oak plank 8 feet long and 3 inches thick, on stringers 2 inches thick and 6 inches wide. It cost an average of $2,500 per mile. The toll was 2 cents per mile for a horse and wagon. In 1851 the road returned 20 per cent on the investment. In a few years it was paralleled by the CB&Q railroad and could not survive the competition. i Highest CASH Prices For Your Dead Stock CHARGE ALL CALLS TO US Postville Rendering Co.

MEYER'S Four-County Hatchery Telephone No. 234 Postville, Iowa f!!!!lllil!!!!iSlllllllllll!llll!llll How Many of Us Are Farmers Today One third of our population? One fourth?—One sixth? Answer: One sixth A total of 26 million persona on American farina food themselves and the other 116 million of us, in addition to millions abroad. It wasn't always this way. Nearly every American was a fanner 150 years ago, because it took most of bis time to raise enough food for his family. But since then improved equipment and methods have enabled each farmer to produce more and thus release more and more workers to produce other raw materials, machinery and services. Agricultural progress made possible our industrial expansion. Together they gave us the highest standard of living in the world. Since the first steel plow in 1837, progress in steel and in farm production have gone hand in hand. AMERICAN IRON AND STEEL INSTITUTE 350 Fifth AVMUS ), Now York 1, N. Y.
