Sewing time often precedes the Easter parade in many homes. Summer months bring canning, picnics and more time spent away from home. The holiday season involves a host of things to do. Word Calendar. Since time saving also means energy saving, home management authorities point out, the easiest way for a homemaker to get the upper hand of her work load is to set down a week-by-week and month-by-month calendar of work. Then she can foretell when irregular tasks will come along and be able to fit them into her daily and weekly schedule without working overtime. While the calendar may sound like a "clock punching" routine, in reality it can give a homemaker a much clearer idea of how many tasks she does perform day after day. It can also help her note whether she's wearing herself out one day only to feel fatigued the next. Some homemakers may think, at first, that the plan pushes them from one task to another. Instead, it really gives a feeling of order to the day. To be sure, emergencies will arise to upset the schedule, but i quick check of the calendar will help to show first what must be done. Then those thiniis which may be done can wait until the next Any or next week. As one homemaker has said. "I like to have a plan because then I can think of the things behind me rather than always worrying about those piled up ahead." Trade Names are Aid In Careful Shopping Shopping by brands may be quick and easy, but it's a good idea to slop to think now and then just what can be expected to come along with a trade name. Where quality has long been associated with a brand name, and warranties and. guarantees go with it, says Fannie Gannon, Iowa State College home management specialist, it can generally be relied upon with a fair degree of assurance. But trade names, she points out, have become valuable devices in selling in addition to protection for the consumer and manufacturer. A brand, in itself, does not describe the "product. When we're acquainted with a product, its trade mark then becomes useful to us. If it has satisfied in the past, we can ask for the product without hesitation and little effort—perhaps over the telephone or through the mail—without time consuming description or searching. There may always be other brands, however, which are as gotid and perhaps even better, or which are lower' in price with equal quality, which would be worth trying, And, says Miss Gannon, the quality of products under the same brand name may not always be the same. The effort of weather conditions on food, for example, can change a high quality product to one of substandard quality. Many retailers use their own brands, rather than those of the manufacturers, and build up the reputation of their stores by selection of reliable brands. In a good store, those brands are handled with reputation for quality built up through the years by contain advertising. Learning To Read In The Modern Way SELLING LOW-PRODUCING COWS HELPS SAVE FEED IOWA TOP STATE IN 1347 IN BLUEGRASS PRODUCTION Iowa led all slates in bluegrass seed production in 1947 with 866.000 bushels. Southwestern Iowa is the highest producing area of the state. Average production over the 5- year period from 1943-47. by states is: Minnesota. 450.000 bu.; Nebraska. 411.000 bu.; Iowa 405,000 bu.; Missouri. .'181.000 bu.: and Kentucky, 277,000 bu. Feeding ground alfalfa or alfalfa meal to sows this winter and spring will lower the cost in raising young pigs later in the year. Damon Catron and C. C. Culberlson. Iow.i State College animal husbandmen, say. Tests showed,that feeding alfalfa meal to pregnant sows produced one more live' pig at weaning time. Better sell a low'-producing cow or two rather than skimp on rations for the whole dairy herd. That advice, by A. R. Porter, Iowa State College dairy specialist, is directed toward Iowa dairymen who, while faced with shortages of grains and roughages, still want good milk production. Dairymen with plenty of hay and not much silage (or just the reverse) can balance out both to make the two feeds last until pastures green up, Porter thinks. Grains and concentrates should be used to help fill out the ration. While hay alone will fill the milk pail to a certain poiut, feeding concentrates will increase milk flow more cheaply than the hay. Whatever choice dairymen make, whether it is culling low-producers from the herd or buying hay, grain or concentrates, it is better to feed balanced rations until pastures are ready. Cows turned to pasture too early hurt productiveness of the grass. Porter says. Also, the cows become thin. Johnny entered the first grade a month ago and his mother is disgusted. She wants Johnny to bring home his reader so she can help him study his lesson. But the teacher never has given him a book.' Johnny's mother does not know that the schools teach reading in a different way today. The modern teacher knows that if a child is "ready" he learns more easily and likes his school work better. By "ready" the teacher means that the child's muscles and nerve centers have developed. Many are ready for reading by years but some children are not ready until 7 or 8 years. The teacher also knows that a child is just like a grown-up. Unless he understands and enjoys what he reads, it is not worthwhile to try. "I see the cat," does not mean a thing. , "Anybody ought to know that," said a bored little girl in an old time school. "So what?" thinks the modern bright youngster. So the teacher spends the first months of school giving the children lots of real experiences. Later tHey learn to read about their good times, She may'take the class to visit a farm or a steam shovel at work or a store. Later they may set up a farm or a store in the school room. You might visit this school room and see large printed words pinned up all over the farm or store— words like barn, silo, tractor, sugar, bananas. Strange printed words are just crooked marks to children. But these pin-up words are not strange. They are the names of experiences which they have had. These words have meaning. After several weeks the child will be ready to read in a book. Someday he will surprise his parents. He will bring home a book and read half way through it. And reading will be fun. The old time struggle with squirming, scolding and tears is out of date. You seldom hear a modern child say, "I just hate reading." FRANK VILLE Many central Iowa farmers have I 'found that they can increase the yield from soybeans by planting more beans to the acre. (Continued from page six) l4ck and families, of St. Paul, Minn., were entertained for dinner Sunday at the home of Mr: and Mrs. Lyle Ellis in Postville.

Friends of Myron Smith, former Le Mars young man, learned recently that he has been spending his spare time matching pennies in the window of a Los Angeles store. His "opponent" is a Los Angeles girl. As soon as they match coins 10,000 times, the winner will get a new refrigerator. Yes. it's one of those radio quiz programs. FIERY CISTERN. Fire (nicks seldom are called to put out a fire in a cistern. But it happened near Breda last week. While thawing out the pump in the cistern, Frank Sturm burned a pail-full of cobs next to the pump.

LeMars residents were viewing the remains of an automobile last week which they believed to be the most "completely wrecked" of all time. Bill Jackson of Sioux City hit a culvert with the car, which cracked open and all but disintegrated. Even the engine flew out. Jackson suffered a broken ankle and will be incapacitated for some time. Salt-cellars placed near the pilot light of a gas range will dry out over night. "Better" Used Cars 1047 Studebaker "Champion" Sedan—Black finish, fully equipped.
