FARMERS STORE POSTVILLE, IOWA Crop Goal of 300 Cars To Europe's Hungry The Central Committee of the Christian Rural Overseas Program (CROP) has announced a goal of 300 carloads of food to be collected in this county beginning Thanksgiving week. CROP, which is jointly sponsored by the Lutheran World Relief, Church World Service (Protestant) and Catholic Rural Life, gives direct relief to those too poor to buy food provided by the Marshall Plan, and their own country's economy. Anton Heitshusen. Williamsburg farmer and CROP • District Representative, recently returned from Europe, related that "Seeing is believing. I ate and slept with a German family for four days. My first meal was dry-cooked potatoes, which was dinner. Leftover potatoes heated in water for supper and two thin slices of sour bread for breakfast. Two little boys, five and seven, were eating the same. De wo want our children and ourselves doing the same, or will we give a little of our surplus and have our churches deliver food to the needy to help win the peace?" Fern Buraas was a caller at the Ben Erickson home last Thursday. Inhibitor Will Prevent Sprouting In Potatoes Many folks who have had trouble keeping stored potatoes from sprouting are having success with the new treatment called sprout inhibitor, says Ed Cott, extension horticulturist at Iowa State College. Composed chemically of a growth-regulating hormone, the sprout inhibitors keep sprouts from forming in the potato eyes. They come in dust, liquid or shredded paper forms, and have been used successfully for the past two years. So far, the dust seems to be the most practical, Cott says. The chemical is easily applied when the potatoes are being stored. When applied according to the manufacturer's directions, the growth preventers keep potatoes from sprouting throughout the winter. In addition, Cott says shriveling is reduced in a minimum. ^ Treatment costs only a few cents a bushel, and does not affect the food quality of the potatoes. The customary washing tubers get before they are cooked is sufficient to remove any trace of the chemical. However, giving this hormone Hud treatment doesnot mean that |3 age standards can be lo ^SF warm Cott. A cool, dark, n3 cellar is still the best plac^J keep them. 'i Sprout preventers should be used on certified seed potaU even though the seed is storedy some time before planting, w treatment has a lasting eft ec t 3 prevents growing a good crop.
