The three high Ohio counties in

Scioto with 1,113, and Fairfield with
1,055.
Home mixed fertilizers made en
tirely from minerals should be used
soon after being prepared or they
may harden enough to interfere with
their application.
Domestic rye grass appears to
have considerable promise as a cover
crop in Ohio. It can be seeded after
corn is cultivated the last time, after
tomatoes or cabbage are last culti
vated, or ofter early vegetable crops
are harvested. This grass grows only
from seed.
Exports of wheat from Canada
to England in recent months have
been larger than the combined ship
ments of that grain from Argentina,
Australia, and the United States.
The favorable position of Canada is
likely to continue.
Ohio farmers who are handy with
tools will get considerable practical
information from extension bulletin
No. 201, The Farm Shop, printed at
Ohio State University. The bulletin
can be obtained free from any Ohio
extension agent.
Fruit growers who have been de
pending upon retail farm sales to
dispose of their crop are wondering
xx hat the tire shortage will do to
their business. Some of the orchard
I owners are considering the idea of
pooling crops for sale from a con
venient central sales location.

1Z’ ISSING as we know it today (i.
e., the touching of lips between
two people) was first recorded as
practiced among the early Persians.
Herodotus tells us that at that time,
an equal was kissed on the mouth,
an inferior on the cheek. The
Romans and classic Greece seemed
to practice the custom at about the
same time. In less civilized coun
tries, the expression of affection
was, and frequently still is, accom
plished by the rubbing of noses, pat
ting of arms, breasts or stomachs.

ing the air, Prof. Berky stated.
Magnesium Bomb
The magnesium bomb generates
the most intense heat known in
chemical warfare. Magnesium burns
at a temperature 2000 degrees hot
ter than molten iron. There is more
difference in the temperature be
tween the magnesium and the molten
iron than there is betxveen an icicle
and a red hot stove, Berky pointed
out.
A magnesium bomb will burn thru
any kind of roof and fall onto the
attic floor. Its effect can be counter
acted by a fine spray of xvater. or
by the use of sand. If a stream of
water is directed on the burning
missile an explosion will result be
cause of the extreme temperature
contrasts, Berky said.

though the knoxvledge may nex’er be

First Aid
The Red Cross first aid courses
concentrate on a standard and estab

the doctor learns many methods.
For the layman the method used by
the Red Cross is far less confusing,
Dr. Travis pointed out.
Instructions in dealing xvith fires

given by Forrest Steinman, chief air
