Vitamin A is present in green, leafy vegetables, and in carrots. Lettuce is the basis for many favorite salads, but for a new taste treat, try a fresh green broccoli salad. Green beans, left over or fresh from your canned shelves, can be combined with chopped onions in a surprise salad guaranteed to make your family happy. Served with lemon juice, it tastes even better and adds health value. Carrots add color as well as nutrients to salads. You've probably served them grated with raisins or apples, or both. And carrot sticks fit into an appetizing relish salad, arranged on lettuce with pickles and celery straws. Speaking of vitamin A, dried fruits. especially apricots and peaches, are another rich source. They can be chopped to take their places in various fruit salads, or used whole. Along with the "A" vitamin, winter menus need lots of vitamin C from sunny California and Florida or from Iowa's summertime gardens. Citrus fruits, old standbys in many satisfying salads, cab- bag* and canned or frozen tomatoes come to the rescue of waning cold resistance. Grapefruit and oranges are especially welcome; and lemons, richest in vitamin C. can be used as a garnish, or in the dressing to pep up salads. Peeling Grapefruit. One of the simple but luscious salads easily made from citrus fruits is the grapefruit-apple salad. Many homemakers peel grapefruit with a sharp knife, using a zig-zag motion to prevent as much juice- squirting as possible. Then they slice into the center of the grapefruit, turn the blade, and the section is lifted out easily. Alternate grapefruit sections with thin apple slices lo make a bright winter salad worth lots in nutrition. Orange sections can be arranged on lettuce or endive by themselves, or with a mound of cottage cheese or mixed fruit salad in the center. Nutritionists suggest a salad made with orange slices and onion slices for something different and delightful. Of course, both oranges and grapefruit can be mixed into fruit salads where, besides adding their quota of nutrients, (hey k,eep other fruits color-bright. Livestock prices do not determine the price of meat. The reverse is true, says Rex Beresford. Iowa State College beef specialist. Meat prices set the pace and livestock prices follow.

It's one of those things that looks harder than it really is. Of course, says Fannie Gannon, Iowa State College home management specialist, it always helps if you're ready with well-kept records. So if you've not kept them up this past year, here's the time to make a good resolution for the year to come. Good records not only make it easier to add up total family income. They help you make sure you're getting the deductions you are entitled to—for donations you have made to church and non-profit organizations, for medical expenses (including eye. glasses and medicines) and uncovered losses due to fire or theft. The forms you have to fill out aren't difficult, says Miss Gannon. Much effort has gone into making them easy to understand. To decide which form to use, carefully rea,d the instruction sheet to see which best suits your needs. If a withholding tax is taken out of your salary, you probably will use the short form. But if you have income other than salary, you'll use the longer form. It may save you money to figure your tax using both long and short forms. Prepare your return one line at a time, skipping over any line that doesn't apply to you. Remember to sign the form; and then send it off to the Collector of Internal Revenue in your district. And if you're entitled to a refund before July i, suggests Miss Gannon be patient— it will come. Trees Play Important Part On Iowa's Farms There is a current shortage • of iron and steel scrap, and the outlook for coming months is not good. Farmers should collect and sell all scrap iron and steel they may have around their places. Trees can and do play an important part in soil and water •conservation on Iowa farms. Bui they do more than this, they provide protection for wildlife and in many cases contribute to farm income, says Richard B. Campbell, extension forester at Iowa State College. Trees for planting in farm woodlots, on overflow land and on erod- ible soils can be obtained through your county extension director from the State Forest Nursery ut Ames, operated by the State Conservation Commission. All extension directors have received a list of available species this year, along with prices and order blanks. Farmers should place their orders early, so as to enable the nursery to 1 - fill them promptly when planting time comes, Campbell says. For erosion control black walnut, green ash, Cottonwood, elm and white oak are good trees to use. If you are interested in wildlife, conservation, osage orange, black cherry, Russian olive . and wild plum should be included. All but the Russian olive and wild plum also have a good market value. These species should be used in new- plantings, except perhaps the black walnut and black cherry, which may be spot planted successfully in existing woods. The others usually do not compete favorably with existing trees. , After the planting is made, Campbell says to keep the weeds or grass down till the trees- get a good start. • And protect the tract from grazing; good woodlands and pastures do not go together. The Wealth of Iowa Gauged by Corn Price Farmers who want to save time with their milking chores and increase milk production are using the new fast 3 -minute method of milking, Iowa .State College dairymen say. When the price of Iowa's great staple crop, corn, t raises from a mean average of twenty-three cents a bushel in 1932 to a high of $2.54 a bushel in December 1947, the corn kingdom has produced a throne of wealth. The hike in the price of corn pointedly reveals the relation of income to buying power. It means greater buying power which is evident by Iowa's prosperous farmers. Iowa's total .cash farm income amounted to $2,368,962,000 . in 1947, according to an official tabulation of the U. S. Department of Agriculture. To the individual Iowa farmer, this means his cash market receipts (not net income) amounted to $11,490, the average per farm income for Iowa. Basically, the wealth of Iowa is no more than its lands. Since its lands are rich its people are well- to-do. Iowa farmers are among the world's greatest consumers of farm machinery; their farm homes and buildings are modern; their equipment is the latest and most efficient, Facts which reveal why Iowa is a great buying state were recently compiled by Leslie Carl, federal agricultural statistician for the Iowa Crop and Livestock Reporting Service. Some of the highlights between mean averages in 1932 and the high in December 1947 follow oats raised from 14 cents a bushel to $1.25; wheat from 38 cents to $2.82; soybeans from 52 cents to $3.70. Hay cost $7.48 a ton in 1932 and $16 a ton in December 1947. Hogs per hundredweight cost $3.19 against $24.60, and cattle raised from $4.94 per hundredweight as compared to $22.10 in December 1947. The price of milk cows jumped from $34.08 a head to $180 a head, and eggs sold for about eleven cents a dozen in 1932 and for 48 cents a dozen in December of last year. Soybean seed can be tested satisfactorily at home. Sancl in a wooden germinating box should be used to lessen the danger of over-watering, says E. P. Sylwester, Iowa State College plant pathologist. He urges that tests be made.either at home or by sending in a pound sample to Iowa State College. Farm machinery men say the?value of used farm machinery throughout the s($te is • gradually going down. 1 ***** More people drive... More people want tit sin suit? A#h 4*y mstlrj* iijF r*sii« True for years—and truer than ever today—with the advent of this newer, smarter, finer Chevrolet for 1948! Official registration figures prove that more people drive Chevrolets—and seven independent surveys prove that more people want Chevrolets—than any other make of carl The'reason,,of course, is more value. And now Chevrolet value is made all the more outstanding by the smart new styling, brilliant new colors, and even more luxuriously appointed interiors which have been added to all the other advantages of Chevrolet's famous BIG-CAR QUALITY AT LOWEST COST. See the new 1948 Chevrolet, and you'll know why more people drive Chevrolets than any other make! You'll admire the tasteful new styling, the new color harmonies, the new and richer upholstery and appointments which add so much to the enviable Big-Car beauty of Chevrolet's Body by Fisher. Members of the Iowa Dairy Herd Improvement Association culled about 2,000 old or low-producing cows from their herds in October and November. Don Voelker, Iowa State College extension dairyman, says that this practice would be a good one for'all Iowa, dairymen to follow. It saves grain and other expensive feeds. * * * * . Most horses can be wintered on roughage, with no grain in their diet, says A. B. Caine, Iowa State College animal husbandman. If the roughage is a poor-quality hay, Caine advises including a legume hay which will supply the animals' needs for protein, calcium, phosphorus and vitamins. ***** Buy the best seed available. You'll find there isn't any other car In its field that gives the Big-Car comfort of Chevrolet for 1948—direct result of the , Unitized Knee-Action Gliding Ride. Chevrolet's world's champion Valve-in- Head engine gives an unequalled combination of performance, endurance, dependability and economy. The record demand for new Chevrolets prompts us to suggest that you keep your present car in good running condition. See us for service— todayl CHEVROLET IS FIRST! Falb Motor Co.
