Although it may not have occurred to you, there are several ways in whch your own window shades can be used to wonderful advantage in saving both materials and energy. Shades TCeduce HeiVt Did you know that window shades can reduce the heat intake in summer as much as 49 per cent thus helping to save your energy from heat fag? Cloth window shades, kept fully drawn during sunlight hours, will keep your home 10 to BO degrees cooler. Two cloth window shades will be still more effective as insulators. They need not T>e dark green or other sombre colors, either, as the Armour Research Foundation which made the tests establishing the above stated facts, found that light colored shades gave even better protection against the Hurt's '.rajs, just as light-colored clothing for summer is recommended for its cooling value. Shades Keep Out Cold The same insulating properties found in cloth window shades makes them just as efficient in winter .in keeping out the cold. Windows account or as much as 30 percent of heat loss and if cloth window shades are drawn at least halfway down during the daytime and completely down during the night, heat loss can be reduced as much as 40 percent in winter, saving you as much' as 10 per cent o-i fuel bills and incidentally, helping to win the war by saving on the total consumption of fuel which is needed for the war. Conserving our very lives is more Important still—and that is where an effective blackout protection comes in. Cloth window shades suitable for ordinary use and if they merits, will provide inexpensive and efficient blackout protection. Besides they have the advantage of being sutable for ordinary use and if they are one of the new light-colored, but lightproof shades, they can be permanently installed^ thus bav- 3ng much time and troube when backouts occur.

Looks like it'* going to take V •bout 30 day* more feeding be- _ fore this hog can go to market.

Learn by Experience Hamburg Boy Scouts were sent to obtain a horse-power hay baler from the Ray Lytle farm as part of the scrap metal campaign. They found a piece of machinery on the spot they thought the baler was to .be and started to dissamble it. After the work had 'been started, they discussed the matter more and came to the conclusion that this might not be a baler. Boys sent to scout around, found another piece of machinery a short distance away, then they did not know which to do their work on. They .later discovered that what they started out on was a binder the tenant was saving for spare parts, and that the latter machine was the baler. However, it all ended well,, as Tom Brown, the owner of the binder donated it to the cause.
