True, skirts for little girls are longer. But 1948 styles will make good use of sister's outgrown dresses as well as Susie's own. Little girls' styles include bolero outfits and jumper-blouse combinations, says Lucille Rea, Iowa State College clothing specialist. These are good for early fall when the weather's unpredictable, as well as later on. Last year's dress, too short now, may often be made over into a bolero suit. Flounces, still good style and appropriate for little girls, will help in lengthening skirts. Ruffled petticoats, peeping out underneath too-short skirts, may save remodeling. There are more dark cottons in the stores this year. When school rooms are well heated, these are a good choice for school clothes. Corduroy is as practical as ever. The fine pinwale kind is easy to launder and it looks best on little folks. There are some water-repellent but washable corduroys on the market this fall, says Miss Rea. Quilted garments are warm and pretty too, and if made of cotton, they're washable. Highest CASH Prices For Your Dead Stock CHARGE ALL CALLS TO US PostvilleRenderingCo.

Must Save Every Fall Pig Possible "Cut Pig Losses to Make Use of More Grain" appears to be the slogan for hog raisers this year and is one way to increase meat supplies, says Dr. K. W. Stouder, extension veterinarian at Iowa State College. Every pig saved and kept healthy from this fall's litters means more on the market. Pigs saved also will provide an "on the farm" market for a large share of the bum per corn crop, says Stouder. Sow Needs Exercise Saving pigs begins at the start of the gestation period. Pregnant sows need to exercise in the sun on good legume pastures as long as the forage stays green. The green grass also provides vitamins essential for developing a strong litter, as well as vitamins in the sow's milk for nourishment of the litter later on. However, sows should have plenty of shade during hot weather. Keep pregnant sows out of lots where vaccinated hogs have been or where there is any chance of their coming into contact with hog cholera virus, cautions Stouder. Some evidence shows that such exposure may cause early loss of some litters from one form of the so-called "baby pig disease." Sanitary Stalls Stalls should be cleaned, disinfected and sprayed with DDT to control flies. Worm eggs can be killed by scalding the floors after ;hey have been cleaned with a Final Rites Held For Castalia Resident Funeral services were held Saturday for Mrs. Delia Winn, long time resident of Castalia, who passed away Wednesday, •September 15, in a Cedar Rapids hospital following a five months illness. Services were held from the United Brethcrn Church at Castalia with Rev. Curtis H. Webster, officiating. Burial was made in the Castalia Cemetery. She was born Delia Ann Feltis, January 18, 1878, at Burr Oak Iowa, one of 13 children. Two brothers and two sisters preceded her in death several years ago. Her oldest brother, Guy, preceded her in death July 4, of this year. She was married to Walter C. Winn, January 3, 1898, who preceded her in death 18 years ago. She spent most of her life in Castalia. Two years ago she moved to Cedar Rapids where she lived with her daughter, Mrs. Leland Stegen. Surviving are three sons, Alva and Claude, both of Portland, Oregon, and Lyle, of Minneapolis, Minnesota; one daughter, Eileen, Mrs. Leland Stegen of Cedar Rapids; four brothers, Ray of Renwick, Iowa: Frank of Sioux Falls, South Dakota; Harry of Hermosa, South Dakota; and Pierre of Colton, California; three sisters, Mae, Mrs. Luther Pierce of Mason City; Bessie, Mrs. F. E. Potter of Rapid City, South Dakota, and Pearl, Mrs. Pearl Barnes of La Crosse, Wisconsin, also seven grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews. PAYS TO SORT APPLES WELL BEFORE STORING Apple storage is only as difficult as you make it, says Ed Cott, Iowa State College extension horticulturist. Following a few general precautions will insure plenty of juicy fruit all winter long. Carefully sort the apples before storing. Sound apples are those free of worms, insect stings, skin punctures, bruises and disease spots. Washing the fruit to be stored Is not recommended, says Cott. This practice removes the natural wax coating on the apples and allows moisture to escape. Store only the varieties you know will keep. Past experience is generally the best guide. Summer varieties seldom keep well, particularly Duchess, Transparent and Wealthy. Golden Delicious will keep in cold storage. Haralson, Hawkeye Greening and other Greening varieties will keep until January, February or even March if properly stored. Jonathan, Grimes Golden, Red Delicious, Secor, Turley and simi­ lar varieties can be Christmas.

Stouder recommends washing the dirt off the sows first, however. '' When sows farrow, Stouder says to catch each pig and paint the navel with iodine to prevent navel ill and swollen joints. Cut off any sharp tusk teeth to prevent fighting and sore mouth later on Guard rails and short straw for bedding keeps pigs from getting crushed. Try to keep the stall dry at all times. Sunshine can help solve this problem, and in addition is a powerful disinfectant for most germs.
