4-H canners need help
Four-H girls carrying on can ning projects are faced with a seri ous problem owing to the extreme early hot weather and drouth which is reducing the supply and variety of sound fruits and vegetables. Some girls have been fortunate in starting to can early, making the fullest use of berries and new gar den products. Where these are yet available club girls are urged to make the largest possible use of them lestdatersupplks fail. A larJfliHIHWf the 5 50,000 girls enrolled in 4-H clubs is par ticipating in the contest which is sponsored by the Kerr Glass Cor poration and provides gold medals for county champions, a trip to the 13 th National Club Congress for each state champion, and a $400,00 scholarship for the national winner. Some fruit and vegetable growers have been more fortunate, as usual, than others in getting good crops due to differences in soil, cultural methods and varieties. These growers ar¥ discovered by a little inquiry and are usually glad to help club members fill their needs. Monument Made Of Petrified Logs Ellensburg, Wash.—The propos ed Ginkgo national monument near here contains approximately 2.000 petrified logs, valued at $1,000 each.

DUKE ENDOWMENT OPPOSES The Duke Endowment thinks the two and three-quarter million dollar PWA loan to the Green wood SoutS* Carolina, municipal power plant would so compete with the Duke Power company as to seriously cripple the latter and thwart its broad benefactions. It is pointed out that the South Caro lina project is in the nature of a subsidy; would not be self-sustain ing, and would serve its largest purpose in berfefitii^g an unnamed textile plant who seeks cheaper power. Some folks consider it hard times to have to do any hard work. 1817 Transients , j Aided By Local FERA Bureau (Continued from page one) five negroes are worked daily on the farm. In the Recreation Hlall across the street from the main building the men are encouraged to play games, read, study, sing, and otherwise enjoy themselves when not on duty. A piano, radio, workroom and class room help in this recreational program. The men enjoy putting out a small weekly paper, and also have a ful ly equipped baseball team. The bureau’s farm has become a vital part of it’s constructive pro gram. Within a short while, with the proper cooperation, this center expects to be self-sustaining and hopes to have a surplus of farm products to furnish other relief centers. Forty-two thousand to mato plants some two hundred thousand sweet potato slips, along with corn, sugar can^, pumpkins, peas, and other vegetables have been planted and present prospects oint to a good crop. Two trac tors were used in breaking the land and three mules and sufficient plows are a part of the permanent equipment. This farm, although only about a month old, shows that wonderful results have been ac complished by transients who were branded as bums who would not work. In addition to the running of the various shelters and working on the farm, the transients will soon have the opportunity to work in an overall and shirt sewing room which has been approved and the machinery for which is now being ordered. Plans are also under way to arrange for a small laun dry and canning equipment is be ing provided for canning farm pro ducts in the immediate future. Each transient is required to work thirty hours a week for which he is paid ninety cents in addition to his keep. Some few who occupy key positions and act as petty of ficers, or sergants, receive as high as three dollars a week. Ample opportunity is afforded these men and women to occupy their minds in the performance of a great va riety of duties such as typing, mimeographing, bookkeeping, bar bering, cleaning and pressing, domestic science, electrical and plumbing experience, carpentering, painting, telephone exchange op eration, and most important of all, personal hygiene and the value of sanitation. NRA Relaxes Twq important relaxations in NRA price policies have been or dered by President Roosevelt. 'One executive order, seeking keener competition for govern ment contracts, allowed bidders to quote prices as much as 15 per cent below figures listed under Blue Eagle codes. These lower prices that would have to be filed with code authorities so as to be come available to the public. A second order dropped fair practice standards—including price fixing—for America's service in dustries and simultaneously offered these 5 trade blanket agreements on the Blue Eagle wage and hours provisions for their several mil lion workers. An opportunity for local fair practice codes was left open. The presidential order and sup plementary ruling by Johnson for the new blanket agreements evi denced an intention to speed to conclusion the huge block of pro | posed service codes which have | been clogging NRA machinery for i months.

By SAMUEL BAKER, Director, Schools of Civil Engineer ing, International Correspondence Schools. WITH touring by motor car over the nation’s highways firmly established as one of our chief forms of recreation, signs are mul tiplying that in building our road3 of tomorrow the highway engineer will pay careful attention to fea tures that have usually received from him only secondary considera tion in the past. The highway engi neer or me luiure wm combine with his engi neering skill many ot th*e functions of tha landscape artist. Preservation of tha natural beauties of tha roadside and provisions for the comfort of users of the highway are rap idly becoming major factors in the construc tion of our roads. It is no far-fetched vision to foresee the day when it will be generally ac cepted that the planning of high ways should include provision for small park? at intervals along the way, where motorists can stop for lunch, to rest, or to stretch cramped .legs. Much has already been accom plished in this direction, but it is still only a start. Strategically lo 1 cated nurseries where trees, shrubs, and flowers can be raised for park and roadside planting will be con sidered as necessary to a state high way organization as its graders and power shovels. V. S. Bureau ot Public Roads Photo A roadside park, typical of those which future highway planning will provide for. Light standards and guard rails will be designed to harmonize with the surroundings. Where a grove of magnificent trees can be saved by a change in the route, the change will be made even if it will involve additional cost. There will be more frequent construction of short haif tunnels under great overhanging U. S. Bureau of Public Roads Photo Roadside planting along a rural highway. cliffs and along sheer canyon walls, in spite of the fact that it would often be less costly to blast away those irreplaceable landmarks. Where excessive grading is not a determining factor, a relatively straight line between two points is usually the most economical route for a highway. Beauty, however, often demands a winding alignment along the natural contours of the landscape. In many phases of American life there is evidence that we are turn ing from an absorbed concentration upon utility to emphasis upon beauty of design. Highway design will not escape the trend, and on the high way engineer will devolve the re sponsibility for the best possible compromise between the conflicting requirements of utility and art.

Furthermore, if the amount of land the grower has in cotton is going to product without side dressing all the poundage he will be allowed to sell, then no nitrogen should be added to thfej soil. On light lands 100 to 125 pounds of nitrate of soda per acre will provide all the side dressing needed under average normal conditions: From 75 to 100 pounds per acre is elnough for sandy loam. Heavy sandy loams, clays, and similar soils require only 50 to 75 pounds to the acre. Only readily soluble forms of nitrogen should be used; such as nitrate of soda, sulphate of am monia, Iqunasalpeter, calurea, cal nitro, urea, and other inorganic sources of nitrogen. Best results will be obtained when corn and cotton, ard side dressed early, according to the re sults of experiments made by the agronomy department of the North Carolina experiment station at Raleigh. Both of these crops absorb most of the nitrogen used in the pro duction of se^d during the early period of the plant’s development. Usually corn should be side dress ed when knee high and cotton at the first or the second cultivation after chopping. Many farmers have been misled by the fact that late applications of nitrogen are effective in increasing the yield and color of stover, but this does not mean that thd maxi mum yield of grain is obtained. Late applications of nitrogen to cotton increase the growth o# the plant but delay the maturiy of the boll, both of which need to be avoided when boll weevils are present. If a good growth of legumes has been turned under before planting the corn, the amount of side dressing needed will be much less. In the case of cotton and some other crops, the side dressing may be omitted entirely if the crop follows a good legume turned un Side-Dress Early For Best Results A CAGEFUL OF CANDY flERE is a vendor with a flare for 4 * display.

If A has the products only. A gets one fourth. If A has the jars and equipment and B supplies the re mainder they sharia 50-50. If A has only the equipment A gets one fifth. The plan may be altered to suit varying situations. Fcbd products not commonly canned are being made more use of this year.
