SOCIETY LJuiijJkil* YOUR COUNTY A4ENT £ SECOND IOWA FARM SCHOOL WH..L BE HELD The second Iowa Farm Youth school to be held at Iowa State .College is scheduled for the period of July 15 to August 22. ,. ;'. One hundred Iowa 4-H club members, one from each county, will be offered the opportunity of participating in this six weeks course. Approximately half of the counties sen-d'boys as delegates and the other half will send girls.

This scholarship li valued at $40 to the delegate selected.

URGE HOMEMAKERS TO STRETCH SUGAR IN CANNING •"Stretch -your sugar in canning" is the advice Miss Alma Schultz. 'home demonstration agent, gives Kossuth county homemakers. .Even though the government is encouraging families to preserve till possible home raised food and at the same time is restricting the amount of sugar they can use, there is no reason- why this year's canning program cannot go on much the! same as before. in the first place, the home agent reports, the govern'ment intends 16 ration some sugar, although no one knows how much, especialy for canning purposes. Therefore, homemakers should plan to make full use of their canning ration during the canning season and not depend on sugar availability during the winter months. Secondly, Miss Schultz suggests that families try to develop a taste for food not so sweet. Many Americana have come to adopt a "sweet tooth" habit that Is not necessary. Thirdly, she continues, homemakers can use ingenuity in the use of materials on hand. Suggestions Miss Schultz gives to stretch available sugar in canning includes using more fruit this year for-plain canning or for bottled juice, and less for jelly, jam, preserves and the other sweet spreads that take much sugar. It Is also pi^sible to can fruit with no sugar at all or with just a little and to sweeten It later when .served, she continues. Similarly, fruit juice can be made with'.little or no sugar. Sometimes an excellent blend can be made by mixing the juice from a sweet fruit with the juice from a tart fruit ami putting them up together. Rhubarb and sweet cherry juice, currant and apple juice, mulberry and apple and elderberries and grapes are delicious mixtures. : gVWfiS PotftM 1 ? tM s«irtne e6ncehtfate8 contain all of the fart* telns,' minerals and vitamins ftee- essary for correctly balanced diet, with you? hotne grdwn grain*.

COOK IRON AND So'uth. on Highway 169 , Our NO SALE" POLICY Chrischille<StOre There has been some comment about ottr "no sale policy, announced in a Victory Dress rack.last week. Perhaps we should clarify our statements somewhat. ' / • • ''. We hope that during the "duration" vfe will not be compelled to resort to huge clearing sale tactics (such as our 2 for 1 sale). With scarcity of materials,, less variance in styles and "allotments"—we see no reason for greatly reduced prices on goods which we cannot replace. War conditions necessitate changes in retailing. In the future, our goods will be marked on a closer margin (because we will not Hare to take big losses at the end of each season) and In all probability there will be tf smaller selection. All this will work Out to the mutual best interests of both merchant and customer. Of course, where gametfte are ''highly styled" or where we think it is to our best interests to sell quickly, we will reduce our prices. But in general, we say, NO GREAT CLEARANCE SALES FOR THE DURATION. We will change our merchandising meth'ods to conform to war conditions. . * Of one thing we are certain, THESE WILL BE NO TWO FOB ONE SALE THIS SPRING. We are selling coats and suits every day because styles are EIGHT, our prices LOW. We expect to have a cleaner stock, a smaller stock, and a bigger turn-over now than ever. You'll always get the same proportion of fresh, new goods at the CHRISCHILLES STORE. ,Our ANNEX will take care of that. If you want real BARGAINS, you'll find them at the ANNEX 12 months a year.
