j,' Herald's Howeinafceni by low, state College Hom?^B^ Those Housecleaning Days— LVE A HANDY CLEANING CLOSET REPEAT PLANTINGS OF CERTAIN GARDEN CROPS Succession plantings are now in order for short season crops in the home garden. Fresh, crisp radishes, lettuce, car rots, spinach and other quick grow ing garden crops can be stretched over a longer period this summer through succession plantings, says Ed Cott, extension horticulturist at Iowa State College. If you planted any of those crops about two weeks ago, it is now time for the second seeding to insure a steady table supply. It's also time to get bush and pole bean seed on hand. Bean planting can start now in the southern half of Iowa, Cott says, or in the northern half of the state the first week in May. JOINT SUBSCRIPTION. The Osceola Sentinel received an unusual subscription last week. When the proprietor of a local cafe, Dell Watson, transferred his own subscription to his home, 47 customers chipped in with nickels and pennies and ordered a copy of "their own," so they can read it at the coffee shop. i g housecleaning !

One of your best aids is the cleaning closet, where all your housecleaning supplies can be gathered together for use at a minute's notice. It should be located in or near the kitchen and should be wide' enough, or deep enough, to hold all those housecleaning stores you may have scattered from the basement to the attic. Most cleaning closets are narrow, due to limited wall space. These closets should be built deep to take care of such items as the vacuum cleaner and attachments, carpet sweeper, wax applier, mops, pail, and a basket for carrying cleaning supplies. A recommended size is 2 feet wide and 2 feet deep. Home owners who are remodelling their kitchens, and new homebuilders, should consider plans for a larger closet, perhaps 4 feet wide and \\i feet deep. Corner shelves can be built into this closet, or into a special cupboard above. Shelves are for the modern bottled cleaners, manufactured to take much of the work out of keeping a house clean—such \ things as window cleaner, soapless cleanser, water softener, silver polish and metal cleaner, leather cleaner and preserver, and cleaning fluid and powder. Then there is a paint cleaner, liquid or powder; your disinfectant; the drain cleaner, wallpaper cleaner, upholstery and rug cleaner, scratch-concealing polish and rust remover. Use Attachments. With the vacuum cleaner attachments handy, this cleaning closet presents quite an array of fighters to help you wage the battle against dirt, any day of the week. And if the list sounds expensive, remember that you already have many of these items, but they may be scattered all over the house. Your cleaning closet can save dollars in wear and tear on your expensive cleaning equipment, too, by providing a place for you to keep it from being bumped about. A cleaning closet of this kind costs surprisingly little to make, and it will cost even less to remodel or enlarge the one you already have. Specifications for a good closet include hooks and nails spaced so that every article can hang free and so that any article can be removed without first taking out another. Complete plans can be obtained from the Extension Service, Ames, and from many other sources.
