The heaviest production f butter for the entire country, so far the present season seems to havt been the past week. Production from now on should show a gradual decrease, governed by the pasturage condi tions. On account of good demand for current use and storage purposes. he market has worked slightly high er. Production of eggs is normal fir t lis season of the year. The consum ing demand is not aa heavy as prev iously, and the amount going to storage is about normal. Prices hrve shown some decline. On account of demand being for fine stock, best prices are being paid r eggs from northern sections. The movement of live hens con tinues heavy for this time of year and all markets are on a lower level Spring thickens are moving in lar ger quantities and prices are wor Kiig lower, which is usual for this season.

The Fruit It Bears By JAMES W.

"The American Farm Bureau Fed eration ia directed and controlled by farmers through a Board of Dim-tors, consisting of or-e official from each state and an additional reprenentative from each twenty thousand members or major portion thereof, and by an executive committee consisting of three member of the Board of Directors from each of the four regional districts of fhe L'nited States.

It noes not aim to replace any other organisation, but in clude among it membership representa tive of all Urnr wganiution. The Federation encourages community organ ization and co-operation. "The American Farm Bureau Federa tion is not a political organixation. It believes that the safeguarding and pro motion of agricultural interest ia vital to the public welfare, and that these in terest can best be protected by the united action of all, regardless of factional or po litical difference. Farm Bureau Rot Political "The American Farm Bureau Feders ion is free from Dolitical entans-lrments. Whenever an officer or director becomes a candidate for state or national orhre he must immediately resign hi offue in the American Farm Bureau Federation. The American Farm Bureau Federa tion, the Mate farm bureau federation and the various county farm bureau rep resent only a nominal investment on the part of any one individual. The entire upkeep of the county farm bureau and the state federations in the American Farm Bureau Federation, uniformly ap portioned, cost the farmer Ins than one rent an acre on hi land. This im-ludr federal, tate and county appropriation ana memrjersnip lee. 'One-half to two-third of the finances necessary to upport the county agent movement come from public fund ap propriated to maintain the agricultural extension work carried on through farm oureaui, our no puiiiic luml go to the .upport of the state federation, or Amer- nan farm Bureau Federation The American Farm Hurrau Federation de pend entirely for it support upon funds provided through the individual Farm Bureau membership fee, of which it re reive not to exceed fifty cent per mem ber.

HOME DEPARTMENT Conducted by the Home Economics Department of Berea College RECREATION IN THE HOME I People should plan for entertain ment in the home as regularly and faithfully as they plan for dinner or a'.rep at night. In every home a certain time should be set aside for play and recreation. The hour after supper la perhaps the best time to do this, but what ever the hour it should be kept a f.'e from other duties as possible. It should be time for family talk, singing, games, music and laughter. The constant grind of daily duties will eventually bring wrinkles and 'dejection, and will drive away the in-j clination to indulge in wholesome fun j and laughter. In other word, it has- ; tens old age. Fun and laughter in I alundance are as essential to Joy and hi.. pines as are food and clothing,! and provision should always be made fc r them. Young parents should take time to plan something for the play hour, and as soon as their children are old 'enough to assist in making plans they j should be given the opportunity. As ' the family grows older all should have part In this. It is just as important for a child to know how to make home life happy as it is to make a living; and the only wsy he jca:i learn ia by doing. The time ta ! ken from other duties for planning the play hour will always be well I spent j Whst should go into the plans fur th glad hour of the day? ! i. Family singing.

When fathers and mothers begin making it a part of their dsv's business to play more with their children home will have a new mean ing and a new attraction for them. 3 Story-telling. There are hun dreds of fine, wholesome stories suit able for telling at the fireside for tho entertainment of the entire fam ily. Every man and boy of the C0Untryside knows quit well the character of stories that men com- mony tell when they get together. The more vulgar the story the more popular it Is with many. An excel- i,nt wy, ,nd the only effective way, to drive out the evil stories is to overcome them with good ones. 4. Instrumental music. Every child should lesrn how to play some kind of musical instrument, and should be glad to add hla bit to the music in the home. Nothing adds more to the Joy of the home and the f i lends who call than good instrumen ts! music. If a child has opportunity ard means to take music lessons he should do so; but if these are lacking be should learn how to play anyway. In many homes instrumental music is thought to belong to girls only; but the boys need to share this also. The common instrument are: organ, piano, violin, banjo, guitar, mando lin, harp, Tut fife, comet. One may ! he shU t t.nt.rt.in r;.n.i. -a remain and be contented. John F.
