As soon as the sun sets, all windows should be opened to secure as much cross- ventilation as possible. Electric fans placed at floor level also help to promote circulation of air around a room by setting the cool air near the floor In motion so that rising hot air Is likely to be pushed out. Three ways to minimize accumulation of heat In the attic are ventilation by means of open windows at the gable ends, attic fans, and Insulation. Exterior features which help to cool the house include green grass and shrubbery or even a green field like alfalfa near the house. Yellow fields, like ripened grain, or bare yards reflect the heat of the sun. Vines around the house also add to coolness, and watering the grass and shrubbery Increases the evaporation which is a cooling process that will be felt In the house. DD? THE HENS Dip the hens, kill the lice and keep the ' egg production coming. Very satisfactory for summer use Is a solution of one pound of sodium fluoride to 16 gallons of water. If birds ere handled carefully there will be no drop In production. One treatment should do the job. Black Leaf 40 can also be used by painting the roosts using one- half pound to 100 feet of space. A second treatment in 7 to 10 days is required with this treatment. KEEP EGGS COOL During the hot weather gather eggs often and place in a cool place. If possible use wire baskets so air can circulate freely through the eggs. Good or poor quality of the eggs is pretty much determined by the way they are handled.' MARKET THE ROOSTERS If you have not already sold the old roosters, get them to market or in the pot. Infertile eggs are much more desirable as germ develop^ ment does not take place if the eggs are not cooled at once. SAVE FATS iDo not throw away any fats from cooking. Put them In clean cans will be paid for these fats and they will be used in our War Production Program. . RUBBER Even though the rubber drive Is over, if you still have some around and turn into your local store. You that Is not being used, turn it in BUY BONDS Help prevent Inflation by buy- Ing bonds. This will help finance the war and help finance you after the war. VACCINATE THE PIGS Hog cholera still causes one of the greatest losses to swine producers. It Is one of the many diseases that can be controlled by vaccination?. Don't tlake chances. The country needs all of the pork that can be produced. Help the country, help yourself. FARMERS SHOUUJ PLAN TO SAVE GOOD SEED OATS New oat varieties, Boone, Tama, Control and Marion were planted by many farmers in the county this year. All of these oats a!re more resistant ot crown rust than our other varieties commonly grown and therefore ,one year with another will produce more and better quality grain. It Is estimated that there are enough of these oalts grown this year to plant the total acreage next year if the good seed IB saved. Farmers having these oats should plan to save them for seed and those who need seed for next year might do well to arrange fcr get ting theirs as soon as the harvesting Is completed. Every precaution should.jbe taken to keep these new oats from being mixed. Combines, threshers, wagon boxes and bins should be cleaned thoroughly so that the seed of the new varieties can be kept pure. The millers says that mixed oats do not mi|ke near as good milling oats as unmixed, even though tne Height and quality iis generally good. This is another good reason for growing a pure variety. • • • In addition to celery, cabbage, snap beans, winter radishes, kohl- ralbl, turnips and endive should be planted up to August 1. Strawberry patches should be- cultivated during the summer to keep down weeds and to encourage the development of strong new plants. The patch will yield more and larger fruit next season if the plants are irrigated during July and August. (Fresh fruits to eat are one of the pleasures of summertime. But these fruits often leave a tell-tale mark on, table linen and clothes that becomes ah ugly stain unless you act promptly. Start working on stains while they are still fresh and dajmp, if possible. In any case, remove stains before you launder the fabric. Boiling water poured on from a height of 3 or 4 feet, so It strikes the stain with force, will remove most fruit stains from white or 'colorfast cotton or linen, except those from peaches, pears and plums. Use a cold water and glycerine treatment for fresh pear and plum stains on cotton and linen. First, sponge the stain- well with cool water. Then put several drops of glycerine or a soapless shampoo on the stain enough to cover the stain. Work in by rubbing the fabric .between your hands. Let it stand for several hours, then put on -al few drops of vinegar. Allow It to remain- for a minute and then rinse_ weUJn wat """" LOCALS Trick Photography Cepil Berfleld of Iowa Falls has on display a double exposure picture of himself while playing chess against himself, One side shows him in work clothes with tousled hair, showing deep concentration.
