April Crop Report.
The April crop estimate of the
United States Department of Agri
culture is encouraging. The condi
tion of winter wheat for the United
States is reported at 78.6, as com
pared with 63.4 at the correspond
ing time last year, and an average
of 83.6 for the ten year period. The
condition of rye is reported to be
85.8, compared with 86 in 1917, and
89 as the ten year average. Live
stock is reported as being in excel
lent condition, fully up to the ten
year average and in some cases bet
ter. The loss of live stock of all
kinds was less this past winter than
the ten year average.
In Iowa the condition of winter
wheat is reported as 80. as compar
ed with 57 in 1917 and a ten year
average of S4. The condition of rye
is given as 92, which is one point
above the ten y'ear average and 12
points above the condition at the
same time last year.
The Iowa agent Frank S. Pinney,
reports that a considerable acreage
of winter wheat sown in the south
central, southwestern and western
parts of the state failed to sprout 011
account of the soil being too dry last
fall, but that it is now sprouting
vigorously, and in such fields many
farmers have sown spring wheat to
thicken up t'ie stand. The soil in
wheat on cornstalks ground has
cracked considerably, exposing the
roots to the air and checking the
growth somewhat. The wheat on
fall-plowed ground blew out on
many exposed points, winter kilan"'
the crop. Many of these spots have
been seeded to spring wheat. Re
cent rains have been helpful.

The American woman demands quality—even when she
thinks most about economy.
That is one reason why Mazola, the pure-oil from corn, for
deep frying, sautcing, shortening and salad dressings is now used
in thousands of homes—in preference to butter, lard or suet.
And since the Food Administration asks us to save these
fats the housewife is especially glad to have a cooking oil which
is so pure, wholesome and economical.
Not one drop of Mazola is wasted—it can be used over and
over again as it does not transmit taste or odor from one food
It is as pure and sweet as the most delicate food cooked i:i it—and it makes fried
foods more easy to digest—free from greasiness or sogginecs.
Use Mazola for your salad dressings, too—makes thcrn especially delicious.
Get Mazola from your grocer in pint, quart, half-gallon or gallon tins. The
large sizes give greatest economy. A!:,o a.k for the free
Mazola Book of Recipes—or write us direct.
Your money refunded if Mazola does not give cr.ti satLfact'.cn.
