Miss Julia Rocheford and Miss Fra Clark of the State Univer sity Extension Service called on the Home Demonstration Agent of the Farm Bureau on Septem ber 13 and 15th. Each had a conference with the agent giv ing new ideas and visions of what the woman's department, of the Farm Bureau can do for the women of the county. Each specialist assisted at a meeting, Miss Rocheford organized the womenof Wagon TCnobT'cbinmu" nity south of Odessa and Miss Clark made a talk to the Bates City organization on planning house work. She described methods "by which less time would be required for house hold tasks and the work done as efficiently as before or may be a little more so where there is room 'for improvement. However these women are not to take Miss Clark's work for this and buy equpiment. An other plan is to b'e tried out. It is this: the first experiment is to be on the Pressure Cooker. The Farm Bureau will supply a pressure cooker. This will be ' demonstrated at a meeting (Continued on Past 2.) 1 1 At season. Altaia must go into me winter with as heavy a growth as possible. Many of the alfal fa' fields look now like they were almost ready to cut but if this crop is taken off the growth will be very much less vigor ous next year, while if allowed to remain the yield next year will more than compensate for the hay lost this fall. It is a temptation to ' harvest all: growth that appears but if the j precaution is taken to allow the alfalfa to go into the winter with a comparatively heavy growth and then care is taken to cut only at the proper time, either crab grass, fox tail or blue grasses will have very lit tle effect on alfalfa. The slo gan of alfalfa growers now should be "Do not harvest af ter this time." o Fly-Frte Date. October Cth is the Fly-Free date for Lafayette County.
