We Are Red Cross Nurses to
All Sick Batteries
WE are proving every day that the right
care at the right time is as important to
batteries as it is to wounded soldiers.
Most of them can be sent back to active duty in short
order. Don't wait until the battery gives its hnal kick in
the middle of some important job and refuses to work.
Think it over ! Drive around and see us.
No charge for testing the battery's pulse and telling you
what is tha matter with it. This is the Official Serv

Many changes are taking place in
the readjustment of conditions from
a war period to one of peace, antl these
conditions are being met. by the peo
ple of our country, in much the same
-spirit as prevailed in war times, which
exemplification is being shown in mat
ters requiring closer co-operation of
the whole people,
j The war Conditions have been in
strumental in teaching th necessity
of co-operation, and since the funda
mentals have been so efficiently dem
onstrated it becomes our unified duty
to apply the results gained toward
further co-operative development and
. s-ince the eyes of the world are now
' on the American farmer, as to how
j he will handle the food, feed and for
1 age production, to meet the greatest
j dejnand for such products the world
i has ever faced, and to do so at a time
! when adequate farm help is a puzzle
; for the best brains, it certainly be
comes the duty of our farmers to prac-
tice the most efficient means of con
; serving energy in their farm help, that
i greater results may be obtained from
j a less number of farm helpers.

The matter of co-operative exchange
of farm help is one which has proved
in many instances of great advantage
in performing certain kinds of work
to be performed in a given poriod of
time. We have many crops which are
perishable in their nature and require
harvesting or handling of t lie entire
crop in a period of. say. one month.
The time may be longer or may be
shorter, but in either case the work

lution would be for the boy to cn
gage the services of a few
neighbors for a couple of days to liar
vest his peanuts, after which he could
repay the neighbor in helping them
during some emergency in which they
needed makes possible, then, a twenty
acre crop of peanuts that otherwise
may not have been possible.
The boy's peanut crop after being
placed in st;ks could remain in that
condition until the picker came into
work of marketing the crop could bo
successfully handled by the boy alone.
This exchansre of heln at a time when
the neighborhood, and the remaining j to
were needing some assistance requir
ing extra services for a short time.
These exarjr.jles are given simply to i
SB
us a source of great pleasure in their
younger days. Of course, the husking
bees was usually followed by some en
tertainment wf fantastic glee, at which
music and dancing were the principal
features, but the main object of the
husking bte was an exemplification of
co-operative exchange of help, for the
i purpose of husking corn, which was a
i r.ecestary u:ul tedious work, before
the corn 'ou!d bo milled or satisfac
torily marketed.
Another good illustration of co-operative
effort ha.- been demonstrated in
of h:s ! ,vi!-t isr! tii be known as "loer rol
lings." i-'or instance, a farmer r.eed-d
some new land cleared, and with his
ordinary h-.--' would saw down tries,
cut the limbs o!f, and otherwise have
the work under way. He would an
r.cun -. to his neighbors that on a cer
tain d.iv l.e v uld have a "log roiling."
When the dav for log rolling came. he.
with all his neighbors, would proceed
i to the land to be cleared, and
help was then available to ro
lo?s in to piles, where Ihey v.cn- burn
ed. Separately ar.d without additional irj
help, the logs were too heavy for them
handled.
Used for Everything.
This same method of co-operative
exchange of farm help has been us. d

This fact, then, allows us the priv

From the fact that peanuts are a
