Overwatering, says L. C. Grove, Iowa State College horticulturist,'is a common fault. It is especially apt to happen when excess water has no chance of running out of the container at the bottom. If. a potted plant comes wrapped in oilcloth or tinfoil, cut a small hole in the bottom to allow the excess water to drain out. Set the plant in a saucer, raising it slightly by means of several small objects beneath. Roots of plants start to decay when left standing in water, and the leaves tend to turn yellow. The soil in which plants are growing should go through a drying and wetting action. Water most all house plants, says Grove, when the soil feels .dry to the touch and when the pot gives off a dull thud when hit with an object. Your Christmas poinsettia should not be allowed to dry out too much while blooming. It requires a warm humid temperature. It will do well at 70 to 75 degrees and in good light, in a metal tray of wet sand. CAN FEED FARM HORSES FORAGE TO SAVE GRAIN Most Iowa farm horses can be wintered on roughage without grain. That is the opinion of A. B. Caine, animal husbandman at Iowa State College. As a means of saving feed grains, he suggests that idle saddle horses and work stock can make efficient use of forage feeds. While satisfactory for maintaining body temperature of horses during cold weather, roughage alone is not suitable for supplying energy for work. If the roughage is oat straw, fodder or poor-quality hay, sufficient good-quality hay—preferably a legume hay—should be included to supply the animals' requirements for protein, calcium, phosphorous and vitamins. Recipe Suggestions For Meat-Saving File Well chosen main dish recipes help to fill the day's protein requirements in these days of meat and wheat saving. Jewel Graham, Iowa State College nutritionist, makes some suggestions: Soybean Tomato Casserole. One can green soybeans (or 2 c. cooked soybeans) 2 T. fat, 1 medium onion, 1 t. salt, dash pepper, V.\ t. paprika, 1 c. tomatoes or thick tomato puree. Saute minced onion; add tomatoes or puree, soybeans and seasoning. Simmer together 5 minutes or bake in casserole about 30 minutes. Garnish with crisp bacon if desired. Liver Loaf. One lb. liver, 2 small onions, % lb. sausage meat, 1 c. finely crushed corn flakes; 1 t. Worcestershire sauce, 1 T. lemon juice, 1 t. salt, % t. celery salt, 1/8 t. pepper, 2 well beaten eggs, 1 slice bacon. Cover liver with 1 cup boiling water; simmer gently 5 minutes. Drain, reserving broth. Put liver and onions through food chopper. Add sausage, corn flakes, seasonings and eggs. Add enough broth to moisten slightly; mix well. Pack into greased pan with bacon on top. Bake at 350 degrees F., 45 minutes. Fish Chowder. One-fourth c. diced fat salt pork, % c. sliced onions, 2 c. hot water, 2 c. sliced potatoes,-2 to 3 lbs. haddock or cod, 2% t. salt, dash pepper, 3 c. milk. Fry salt pork in kettle until crisp and browned. Add onions and saute. Add water and potatoes and cook 5 minutes. Then add fish, and cook until it can be separated into large flakes with fork. Remove skin and bones of fish. Add seasonings and milk. Reheat. SIXTY YEARS. In an unusual presentation at Guthrie Center, T. J. Lyons of Panora and Henry Lyons of Bagley received pins for 60 years of affiliation with the I. O. O. F. The brothers are 84 and 83 years of age, respectively.
