\ W, .5 Heart of Model Kitchen:
How It Can Cut Costs in Any Home
National Adequate Wiring Bureau
Pictured is a model kitchen,
very pleasing to the eye—but
what really makes its perfection
possible can't be seen. It has hid
den charms electrical wiring
that meets all standards of
adequacy, insuring the maximum
in efficient and economical op
eration of lights and appliances.
Whether you plan to build or
modernize—no matter how mod
est th_e scale—your choice of wir
mg is of utmost importance.
Adequate wiring costs little more
than ordinary wiring, and in the
end yields substantial savings.
Ccstly Changes Averted
For instance, certain ’ heavy
duty appliances, such as the elec
tric range, dishwasher-food waste
disposer and home freezer. re
quire individual circuits. These
circuits should be added at the
same time that other kitchen
wiring is being done. even though
you 0 not plan to. buy -all of
these appliances immediately.
Thus, no costly rixaping open of
walls, ceilings or coring when
you decide ater on to expand
your kitchen’s electrical equip
ment. . .

The year 1948 has been a pe
culiar year as far as agriculture
is concerned. We have had a late
spring, more than the usual a
mount of rain, hard late frosts,
and last, a flood. Every farmer
should be interested in just what
the crap situation is throughout
the entire contry, as the supply‘
of feeds will effect the price of
his local product.
' The prospects for crop for the‘
nation as a whole are average or;
in some cases, a little better than
average. June 1 prospects in the
northern Atlantic and northern
Icentral states were uniformly
good, except in Nebraska and
Kansas, which are wheat pro
ducing areas. In the southern at
lantic states prospects were above;
'average, except in Georgia and
Florida. In the southern central
United States the average pro
,spects are held down by poor
to fair conditions in Oklahoma
and Texas. Out here in the west,
in spite of the late season pro
spects are average, varying from
fair in New Mexico to very good
in Montana and the 3 north
western states. 7 "______-
This woula indicate that with
the exception of a few special
crops there should be ample sup
plies of hay and feed grains for
livestock and a good supply of
foods for people this fall.
Many of us have adopted the
attitude that “that’s 25 miles away
and it dosn’t bother me, so why
should I be interested?” Never
theless, human suffering which
effects one area will eventually
have an indirect effect on the

to use barley as an emergency
crop, secure as good quality seed
as possible. The best seed is none
too good. Other crops which may
