Steele ^TORNEY-AT-LAW 1 °ver Abernethy'i Biere [Telephone Ne. IM dessert can be made mighty appetizing by using ingenuity. Children will love to help fix it. Iowa State research workers have found that too many sweets and highly flavored foods often spoil a child's appetite for more bland and essential foods like milk and vegetables. That's one reason why grandmothers and fond'uncles shouldn't give children candy or rich cookies or cake between meals. Then, too, foods which are over- rich in fat stay in the stomach longer for digestion. A child's digestive system can't take very much mince pie. Cereal puddings, custards and blanc-manges are the concentrated foods, containing milk and usually eggs. They are easily digested and not bulky. They're especially good for the growing boy who needs much extra food, but whose stomach is still comparatively small. Pastry should be used sparingly. Best for children are the one-crust pies with a filling containing fruit, or milk and eggs, to supply valuable body material. If the rest of the family objects, why not make a little more filling than you need for the pie, and serve (he youngsters a special pudding. Most of them will love it. Plain Cake. An oasy-to-make cake that's plain and not rich will be fine for the younger member of the family, as well as the older ones. Sponge cake, gingerbread, plain cupcakes and molasses cookies arc suggested desserts on the "okay" list. Custard can be fun to make and serve. Try it with pear halves, garnished with bright-colored jelly for an artistic effect. Firm custards and puddings * furnish a base on which mothers and children can try out their ideas. For instance, sliced bananas and a candy cherry, or clever gum drop flowers. Cranberry or mint jelly can be cut into stars or many other shapes to dress up desserts for the whole family. Or maybe your child will be able to figure out how to decorate her dessert with pieces of dried prunes. Some homemakers try chocolate sauce on firm custards for a "black and white" effect. This is especially good when the custard, or rennet pudding, is flavored with mint extract. Then there are molds, fruit and chiffon effects, a treasury of ideas for the wise homemaker—and her children—to work with. Select Nylon Weights Appropriate for Wear If women will buy nylons intelli- gtntly, there'll be no shortage to worry about. That's the advice of Elsie Williams, Iowa State College clothing specialist on the subject of hosiery supply. Production of nylons actually increased last year by 96 million pairs over 194(5. Output of silk and rayon hose has practically vanished because women prefer nylon. Facilities for manufacturing nylon yarn are now being expanded. Nylon stockings have improved in quality every year. What many American women don't realize, Mrs. Williams points out, is that the super sheer 15- denier nylon they're now wearing for everyday is equivalent to the one-thread silk which was a luxury item years ' ago. Thirty-denier weight hose are as sheer as pre> war two-thread silk hose. It stands to reason, she says, that stockings made of lighter threads are naturally more delicate. A 15 denier thread is • only half the weight of a 30-denier thread. Because of the delicacy of the lighter nylon yarns, imperfections run fairly high. Women who are wearing very sheer nylons for everyday will find them expensive since they aren't as durable as heavier weights, Very sheet, hose are hard to get, Facilities for making the sheerest nylons are extremely limited, usually to about 30 percent of plant capacity. Heavier gauge hose are more plentiful. Choose hose suitable for the oc casion, says Mrs. Williams. Not only will it help out the clothing budget, it will help make sheer hose available on the market when you do want them. It's a good idea to rough-plot your garden with paper and pencil, says A. E. Cott, Iowa State College horticulturist. Plan how much of each vegetable you will need, then allot it space on the diagram. ***** Anyone interested in good seed production may join the Iowa Agricultural Experimental Association and take part in the seed certification program, says J. L. Robinson, secretary of the association. ***** A backyard garden can produce garden stuff worth from $50 to $100. BABY PIGS - —and the — - - MAMMA PIGS Some Farmers have their little plfs now, others will be getting; theirs soon. This year you will want to get them off to a good start. Get a supply of BOLSON'S PIG AND SOW MEAL Put some in a creep for the little plfs, It will make them grow and keep them growing. Give some to the sows, too, it will nuke them milk real heavy'and keep them in food condition. It's a program that will make you money. Start with BOLSON'S PIG AND SOW MEAL this year. FARMERS STORE POgTVUXE, IOWA Congratulations | To the REA People j We, too, join with the many individuals j and concerns who are extending congrat- j - ulations to the Allamakee-Clayton Elec- | trie Cooperative, Inc., of Postville, on the g completion of its fine new office and head- | quarters building opened formally last | Saturday. | We are grateful for the opportunity | of supplying a goodly portion of the j | materials needed in the erection of this | | monument to the pioneering efforts of § | those who brought this utility to the | | farming communities of nprtheast Iowa. j | It is our hope that all those connected j | with the local REA may long enjoy-the | | fruits of their labors. | 1 J. L Gregg €r Sons | I Lumber Company ( | "The Place To Buy When You Want To Build" 1 There's No Other Oats The Equal of Clinton. Clinton is still the' highest yielding, stiffest strawed and most disease-resistant , oat variety available in quantity anywhere in the United States or Canada, According to community oat trials completed this •year by Iowa State College agronomists. / Ed Dyas, extension agronomist, points out that other varieties may average a little higher in a few outlying plots and in some small districts, but in every section of Iowa where enough trials were made to give a reasonably accurate rating, Clinton was on top. Benton Second. Close behind Clinton are Benton and Marion. Benton was second to Clinton in stiffness of straw, yield and disease-resistance. Marion was best adapted to soils of lower fertility where lodging isn't likely to occur. Dyas says the trials showed that Tama, Boone, Control and Vic- land—any selections involving Victoria—should be discarded. They are susceptible to .the new blight, and getting rid of them is the most practical control for the disease. In the 51 community oat trials the 10 varieties that were believed to be the best for demonstration com­ parisons were tested. Five of the relatively new selections—Clinton, Shelby, Benton,\ Mindo and Bonda—were compared with Marion, Tama, Boone, Gopher and Iowa 105. Shelby, a new Iowa selection of which there is no seed available, was second in the trials. Then came Mindo, a shorter and earlier Minnesota variety, followed very closely by Benton. Dyas pointed out that Mindo ,and Benton are so close in yield that there is no practical difference. Marion and Bonda finished the list of the top six. Old Varieties Low. The six top varieties averaged 67 bushels p'er acre in the 51 plots. Clinton alone averaged 72 bushels. Gopher, Iowa 105, Tama and Boone averaged 50 bushels. Dyas points out that a 17-bushel increase can be credited to new varieties. Clinton yielded 22 bushels more than the old varieties. None of the so-called "Clinton­ like" oats are better than Clinton, he says. Some are earlier and shorter and some taller, but all of them were discarded in favor of Clinton. Neither are any of the Canadian varieties equal to Clinton. Ajax has been the best Canadian variety but it is susceptible to crown rust, the common races of smut and is not as high yielding or stiff-strawed as Clinton. In trials at Ames and at Kanawha, Ajax has averaged five, pounds lighter in test weight per bushel. Dyas pointed out that that makes quite a difference in feeding value. Cheese production has been lagging behind a. year ago. "Better" Used Cars '47 Studebaker Champion Sedan Radio, Heater, Climallzer '46 Ford V-8 Super DeL. Tudor Black; Radio; It's Clean.
