Stops were made in Buffalo, Niagra Falls and the special train carrying tourists from Maryland and Delaware stopped at the Canadian border, so the story goes, for routine inspection. The customs officer passed among them and stopping in front of a wom an passenger he began with the usual “Where are you from Madame?” He seemed startled at her reply when she murmured, “Berlin.” “Did I understand you to say you were from Berlin, madam?” Here friends intervened and told the grim official the lady meant Ber lin, Maryland, not the other Berlin. The party returned yesterday and from all indications it was one of the most enjoyable summer tours experi enced. The delegation visited Mon treal, Toronto and Ottawa, in Canada and in Toronto viewed the beautiful Canadian National Exhibition.

HOUSEKEEPERS SHOWN SOLUTION OF FOOD PRICE State Dept. Health Suggests Ways To Solve Three-Meals- A-Day Problem Here are some end-of-the-season canning suggestions from the Nutri tionist of the State Department of Health as to ways by which house keepers may help to solve their three meals-a-day problem, regardless of rising food prices: “With food prices climbing, the home-maker who has put up a supply of home canned fruits and vegetables during the summer has had a large share of her food budgetting problems solved for her. “By now, a great many housewives i have already lined their shelves with canned carrots, green peas, string beans, lima beans and other vege tables or fruits from their gardens. For those who have waited to begin their canning program there is still much canning material available. Un til late in September, Maryland gar dens can be depended upon for to matoes, beans, corn, squash and other vegetables; apples peaches, pears, grapes and other fruits, for canning or preserving, all of which have good nutritional values or add variety to the family supply. “Vegetables and fruits are sources of mineral and vitamins. They fur nish body building and regulatng ma teral. Vegetables and fruits are need ed all the year round. The daily veg etable requirement for each individual is for two servings of vegetable in ad dition to potato. One of them should be a green or yellow vegetable to pro vide Vitamin A,the vitamin which aids growth and helps to develop re sistance to infection. Among fruits, tomatoes are an important source of Vitamin C, the scurvy preventive vi tamin. A dish of tomatoes and anoth er serving of fruit each day meet the individual’s fruit requirement. “To fill these needs for the winter months, the Maryland Extension ser vice estimates that the following should be provided for each member of the family: Greens, four quarts; tomatoes and tomato juice, a total of twenty quarts; other vegetables—at least six to eight different kinds — To relieve I fN Q Misery of V* Lb O f Liquid - Tablets Salve - Nose Drops Cough Drops Try “Rub-My-Tism”—a Wonderful Liniment GOVERNOR O’CONOR HOST TO KING’S BROTHER Governor Herbert R.

Mar tin Airplane Plant at Middle River. With Governor O’Conor were the two Maryland Senators, Congress man William P. Cole Jr., and many ranking officials of the Aircraft Company. MRS. R. W. DAY IS CHARG ED WITH DEFALCATIONS (Continued from Page 1) dangered if brought to court. Examinations were made by Dr. Frank Lewis, her physician acting in the absence of Dr. I. Rivers Hanson, and Dr. Philip Insley. Both said in a report to authorities that the war rants might be served on her at her home, but that she could not come to court at this time. There has been no statement made as yet, definitely naming the amount of the alleged defalcations over Mrs. Day’s long term of service. Those in charge of the investigation estimated so it is reported, that the shortage will amount to SIO,OOO or $12,000 per year. This indicates a rather alarm ing sum. a total of thirty quarts; fruits (six eight kinds), twenty-five quarts; dried fruits and vegetables, three quarts. “For the total family needs, mul tiply the amount for one person by the number in the family, and add one extra portion for unexpected company. “Even the family with a small gar den can meet a portion, at least, of its winter requirements by canning regularly small amounts of extra vegetables qr fruits that are not needed on the family table. By put ting up small quantities at a time, a very considerable amount can be ac cumulated by the end of the season.” dfl Hi Now Thru Saturday Mickey Rooney Judy Garland IN “LIFE BEGINS FOR ANDY HARDY” With The Whole Hardy Family Mon., Tues., Wed., Sept. 1-2-3 Cont.

The greens should be crisp and perky.; This goes far toward giving salads 1 i a jaunty, inviting air. Let the salad greens stand up around the salad mix- | ture, rather than lie flat on the plate.!

By doing so they not only will get increased yields of wheat but also add fertility for the following year’s hay crop. “It is not infrequent for the in creased yield of clover and other hay crops which follow fertilized wheat to be sufficient to pay for the whole fertilizing operation,” according to H. R. Smalley, Director of Soil Improvement Work, The National Fertilizer Association. On a demonstration farm in Michigan, the increased yield of alfalfa hay during a two-year pe riod following wheat which was fertilized with complete fertilizer, amounted to 3,771 pounds of hay. At the average price of alfalfa hay, the increase is worth .$19.00 an acre for the two years. One of the best ways to start a high-producing pasture is to fertil ize the wheat crop heavily this fall and seed the pasture next spring. In an experiment at Wooster, Ohio, an application of 450 pounds of fertilizer gave an increase of 18 bushels of wheat and more than doubled the pasture yield for several years following. .

In addition, legume cover crops add nitrogen to the soil, which ; is doubly impoi-tant at this time. The cost of planting cover crops will be returned to farmers in at least three ways, says Mr. Grant, —through AAA payments, increased crop yields, and a saving in the fertilizer bill. Planting legume cover crops, he as serts, to guard against possible shor tage of nitrogen is in the interest of national defense and of the farmer himself.
