Vitamin Rich Carrots : Can Be Tasty Morsels Fresh carrots of good quality are on the market through most of the year. Their vitamin A value is high when they are served either cooked or raw. Carrots which have beer buried or stored run as high or high er in vitamin A value than fresh ones. They furnish more than just vitamin A; they also contain small er—but appreciable—amounts of the B vitamins and of vitamin C. In addition, carrots are good sources of essential minerals. However, since these minerals are soluble in water, more of them are obtained if the carrots are eaten raw. Extension nutritionists suggest toning up the flavor of cooked car rots with a’ little lemon juice. A pleasing combination both to the eye and the palhte is made by sprinkling chopped parsley over either cooked carrots or carrot sal ad. Or try spring onions or chopped onions sauted in hot drippings from meat, as a seasoning for cooked carrots. The recipe for carrot custard is as follows: Beat 3 eggs slightly, add and mix 1% cups of grated ratv or mashed cooked carrots with 3 cups of milk, 3 tablespoons of melted but ter and 1 teaspoon of salt, pour into a greased baking dish, place on oven rack in a pan of hot water, and bake in a moderate oven for about one hour, or until the custard is set in the center. Serve at once. Treating Seeds Insures Good, Vigorous Growth Long practiced by commercial growers, seed treatment has been found by victory gardeners to save time, labor, money and seed as well as the investment in garden space, tools and fertilizer. It insures good germination and vigorous, healthy seedlings. The method of treating seeds”Ts very simple. Small handy packets of fungicides are available in seed stores and contain enough of the chemical dust to treat several pounds of seed. The amount of dust that can be held on the tip of a pen knife blade—sufficient for quarter ounce seed packets—is put into the envelope with the seed and shaken well. Pound and half-pound lots of seed can be treated in glass fruit jars. First Steel Sailing Vessel Launched in 1894, the Dirigo was the first all-steel sailing ship. She was designed by the Waddingtons of Liverpool and the frames and plates were fabricated in Scotland, shipped to Bath, Maine, where construction of the hull was supervised by the designer. She was launched by her owners, the Sewalls of Bath, Maine, operators of famous wooden sailing craft. She had two full decks and was 312 feet long, 45 feet beam and 26 feet draft. Her gross tonnage was 3,004. Designed to carry 13,000 square yards of canvas without bal last, the Dirigo proved to be a most useful craft. The ship attained considerable fame when Jack London and wife shipped on her, London serving as third mate, his wife as stewardess, to get local color for his story “The Mutiny of the Elsinore.” The world’s first all-steel sailing ship was the victim of a German sub in 1917. Farmers Using More Minerals Increased use of rock phosphate and limestone in Illinois is being continued as farmers act to main tain and improve fertility of the soil while producing record wartime crops. Last year 192,000 tons of rock phosphate—not including colloidal phosphate—and 3,700,000 tons of agricultural limestone were used, according to figures compiled by the state university and state geological survey. The soil Improvement department of the Illinois Agricultural associa tion estimates that when colloidal phosphate tonnage is added, the rock phosphate figure for 1944 in the state will amount to more than 210,000 tons, largest ever applied in one year to the farm soils of Illinois. Use of commercial fertilizer in creased from 114,000 tons in 1943 to 132,000 tons in 1944. Sulfonamides and Teeth Do sulfonamide compounds affect the teeth? In answer to this query, the Jour nal of the American Medical Asso ciation reports that there is no way in which sulfanilamide or any of its compounds could affect the struc ture of the teeth or modify the proc ess of dental decay. Regarding the use of vitamins to prevent or treat dental decay, a number of investi gations has proved that vitamins are ineffective. The enamel of the tooth, where the decay first begins, does not have cells or blood vessels, and therefore does not have the power to rebuild or repair. The only effective treatment for the decayed tooth is the removal of the decay and a filling replacement of the lost structure.

Treasury Department Vaccinating for Pox, Roup Chicken pox and roup are likely to occur in any flock and for this reason it is well to vaccinate. Four precautions should be taken in vac cinating: 1. Vaccinate pullets preferably when they are two to three months old. 2. Thoroughly mix powdered scab material with water before using. 3. Do not confine pullets after vac cinating. Give them a well-shaded range. 4. Do not vaccinate lairds suffering from diseases or parasitic infesta tion, or heavy losses may occur. Delay vaccination until the birds have completely recovered from the disease or are free from the para sitic infestation. Plywood Fuel Tanks A new type of auxiliary fuel tank, made of plywood, makes it possi ble for one of Uncle Sam’s newest, fastest and deadliest attack bomb ers to fight the Japanese on their home grounds. Plywood fuel tanks were found to be much lighter than metal ones. Bolted temporarily into the empty bomb bay of the Douglas A-26 In vaders, they hold enough extra gaso line to carry the fast twin-engine medium bomber across vast open stretches in the Pacific ocean on fer ry hops. We All Dress Alike Now Democracy has been greatly stim ulated by mass production of clothes. Until comparatively recent years a man’s wealth and even his occupation were easily recognized by the clothes he wore. Thirty years ago only women of means had re course to high-priced dress makers who styled dresses to the latest Paris fashions. Modern machinery and factory methods have changed all this. Now clothes worn by men and women of modest means close ly resemble those worn by the most wealthy. De Luxe Motor Courts The motor court is a purely American phenomenon that came into being to fill a void in the motor ing world and that developed into an important service industry from humble beginnings as “camps” where travelers might pitch their tents overnight, or rent humble shacks. The postwar motor court is expected by building experts to of fer more comfort, cleanliness and convenience than even just before the war, plus new safety through the wider use of fireproof materials, such as gypsum, suitable for every climate. Silk From Central Amerlea Mexico, which was raising silk worms experimentally in the 1870 s and 1880 s, is now planning on silk worm raising as a national industry which will employ thousands of ru ral workers. Cuba and Nicaragua have also been looking into the pos sibilities of sericulture. Although silkworms can be raised in some parts of the United States, the silk culture as an industry is not sufficiently profitable to the North American farmer to tempt him to give up his corn and pigs. So this country will have to go on importing silk. o ■ ■■ Statement that the future of the atomic bomb rests with Congress in dicates that it may be killed by a fili buster.

LOOKING trj AHEAD A|#by GEORGE S. BENSON President—Harding College ■ Searcy. Arkansas Employment First People who work in the fields, In mills, mines and shops, on railroads and in industry generally, are to be congratulated upon President Truman’s choice of Fred M. Vin son, the new Secretary of the Treas ury of the United States. His under taking is enormous, delicate and vital. But it is my belief that no body else in government is quite as well qualified to handle the job as Vinson. The new cabinet member knows taxes. Things he has said already prove that he is keenly aware of two things that are currently the most important facts about taxes. (1) High taxes are necessary, now and for some time to come. (2) Wrongly devised taxes in the United States can wreck the financial struc ture of the entire world in a few months. Dark Ages might visit the earth again. A Dependable Thing The “yankee dollar” is one of few known quantities left in the finan cial world. While this condition lasts, there is away for weak and depleted countries to gain industrial and then financial strength. The dol lar will remain good so long as Uncle Sam keeps meeting his obli gations promptly, fulfilling prom ises and paying the interest on his stupendous national debt. Our debt is so big and America’s moral obligations are so exacting that taxes must be high after the war, much higher than they have ever been in peaceful years before. Government has no way to get mon ey except by taxing its citizens. Con sequently the citizens have to be prosperous. There must be full em ployment, plenty of jobs at good wages—otherwise not enough taxes. Holding our Ground The world is relying on the sol vency of America, on the soundness of the dollar, and it all depends on jobs. Mr. Vinson said: “Taxes should be levied in such away that they have the least harmful effect on the expansion of business invest ment and the creation of jobs be cause productive employment is the source of .. . revenue which the gov ernment collects from taxes.” The Secretary’s eye was not on taxes alone. In a recently published report he made it clear that pro ductive employment is the foun dation of America’s living standard (highest in the world), the source of all income and the basis of pros perity for business and agricul ture. We may be assured that Vin son will always do his best to pre vent ruination of jobs by taxing busi ness to a standstill. A Rational Economy Here is a powerful and rational sentence from Vinson’s pen: “The sooner uncertainties in the post-war tax structure are removed, the soon er business management will be inclined to make firm commitments for expansion and the faster men can be put back to work following the wholesale cancellation of con tracts that will occur with the un conditional surrender of Japan.” Persons who would like to see America in chaos, people who would like to see a dictator climb to power over America’s wasted estates, may call the new Treasury head a friend of big business. He apparently is, to whatever extent such a friendship means jobs for workers, prosperity on the farm, customers in the store and food on the table for Ameri ca’s plain people. ■ "O JUVENILE COURT With Associate Judge Win. Ray Horney presiding, the first session of the recently organized Juvenile Court of Cecil County was held in Elkton on Wednesday of last week. The new Court was authorized by en actment of the last Legislature, pro vision being made for a similar court in each county of the State. ■ Judge Horney heard the case of six boys, who while in a diner at Perryville, destroyed property be longing to the owner of the restau rant. Judge Horney dismissed the charges against two boys and parol ed the other four in the custody of their parents. Two larceny cases and three motor vehicle violations were also heard. These cases were sent to the Magis trate’s court for trial. Judge Horney presided in the absence of Judge Con stable who is ill. The juvenile court will meet on the first and third Wed nesdays of each month. o SERVING AT PACIFIC AMPHIBIOUS BASE AT AN AMPHIBIOUS BASE IN THE PACIFIC —Thomas Hayes Mar tindale, Jr., electrician’s mate, first class, whose wife, Gertrude Buck Martindale, lives in Rising Sun, Md., is serving with this repair and train ing base which supplied troops and landing craft for major invasions in the Marshalls, the Gilberts and at Okinawa. Carrying a 24-hour, seven-day week schedule, his unit maintained ail types of landing and assault equipment and repair supplieee. The base also trained personnel in am phibious communications, mine sweeping and camouflage operations. ■ o.

ERECT NEW BUILDING FOR TRAINING FIREMEN Ground 1 was broken last Saturday, Sept. 8, for a new two-story fireproof brick building to house the Fire Ser vice Extension Department of the University of Maryland at College Park. Facilities of the building will be open to all firemen of the state, and will be used for the volunteer firemen’s short courses starting next, fail. For construction of the 50-by-100 foot building, south of the Byrd sta dium on the campus, SIOB,OOO was appropriated from the state's post war building fund. The structure will include a twenty-foot square 5- story training tower, a smoke room for gas mask training, pumping units and various other apparatus for training men in fire fighting. It will also house the local fire-fighting unit. Governor Herbert R. O’Conor and State Comptroller Millard B. Tawes were speakers at the ceremony, as was Dr. Harry C. Byrd, president of the University. Philip Ryan, of Mt. Rainier, president of the Maryland Volunteer Firemen’s Association , broke ground for the building in the ceremony held in conjunction with the Prince Georges County Volunteer Firemen’s Association meeting. Actual building will start within two weeks, and completion of the new structure in about 6 months will enable the University to provide even better training and service to the 215 volunteer flrq departments of the state. The fire extension service of Ihe University of Maryland, started n 1938, held, annual training schools before the war under Director James F. Just for some of the 25,000 volun teer firemen who contribute their services to this worthy community enterprise. o GAME KILL A report recently issued by the De partment of Game and Inland Fish shows a 1944 increase, 41.81%, in the return of reports on game killed by licensed Maryland hunters, as compared with a 40.98% return in 1943. This increase in returns, some what encouraging, as it is, tells a story of failure on the part of sports men to cooperate in a program of game management intended for their own benefit. The figures cited indi cate that fewer persons than fifty out of one hundred licensed are making the returns requested, in fact, re , quired by law. A segment of the report of E. Lee . LeCompte, State Game Warden, fol lows: “The number of pieces of game . reported in 1943 were 368,159 with . a total weight of 517,836 pounds, while the total number of pieces of ' game killed in 1944 was 429,925 . with a total weight of 619,770 lbs. ■ (These figures are based on game ■ birds and game animals dressed for ■ the table.) As usual, rabbits, squir • rels, and quail lead the list in upland game birds and animals: rab bits, 133,289; squirrels, 140,427; 1 bob-white, 41,627; wild ducks, 76,- > 436; wild geese, 5,796. ' Chapter 367, Acts of 1941, provid • ed that every persons who procured • a hunter’s license must make a game 1 kill report at the close of the hunting i season. Our hunter's license, when ! issued, carries an accompanying re ' turn postal card for the hunter to ’ make his report of big game-kill. However, it does seem almost impos ! sible to secure this information from a great many of the licensed hunters. We believe it is greatly due to ne ! gleet on their part since we feel that the majority of licensed hunters are ' sportsmen and desire to cooperate. J They sho'Uld realize that it is only [ through such cooperation, receipt of ! reports on game killed in counties, that the Commission can secure in formation as to the increase or de crease of certain species in sections of the various counties, and, in turn, ' judge the success of efforts made to • re-establish wildlife abundance.’ —o - SWEET CORN CAN BE SAVED BY DRYING IN AIR OR OVEN Drying offers a good method for ' preserving corn —• considered the , hardest vegetable to can successfully without a pressure canner, says Miss ' Margaret McPheeters, nutrition spe cialist for the University of Mary land extension service. ! Pick only as much corn as can be handled at one time, she advises, and ' select ears in the milk stage, just right for cooking. Husk the ears and cut out defects. . . . Boil the corn 7 to 8 minutes, cut the corn from the ' cob with a sharp knife and spread evenly on drying trays in half-inch layers. 1 For sun-drying, lay a thin cloth over wire trays, window screens, or slat trays, so air can circulate under and over the corn. Cover the corn with another thin cloth to keep out insects and dirt. Place in the sun and f stir two or three times a day. Be sure ' to take trayß in at night before the t dew falls, or a shower.

CHRISTMAS MAILING INSTRUCTIONS ISSUED Instructions for mailing Christmas packages to army and navy person nel overseas have been announced through the Office of War Informa tion. Stating that there will be more complications this year than in 1944, despite the end of hostilities, because of the re-deployment of millions of men and women means less shipping space and that the greater distance would add to the problem, the fol low rules and requests have been set forth by Army and Navy postal offi cials: 1. Mail gifts between Sept. 15 and Oct. 15. This is the only period in which parcels can be sent overseas to service personnel without a writ ten request. Packages should not be mailed if the addressee is likely to be home before Christmas. If there is any reason to believe the addressee may move soon to a new location, a wait is advised until the new address is known even if this means asking the soldier for a letter requesting a Christmas gift. 2. Use the latest address known completely and accurately. 3. Pack the gift in a heavy box and tie with strong cord. The packages must not weigh more than five pounds, measure not more than 15 inches long, or a total of 36 inches in length and girth combined. 4. Only usable gifts should be se lected, such as dried fruit, canned luxury foods, razor blades, fountain pens, wallets or watches. Perishable foods, intoxicants, weapons, poisons or any inflammable materials, includ ing matches or lighter fluids should not be mailed. o REAL ESTATE DEALS Wheeler & Grier, Realtors, of Ox ford, have sold for Mrs. Edna M. Lofland, her former resiednee and store property in the Fourth Dis trict of Cecil County to Mr .and Mrs. D.

Jones with removing her one-year-old child William Wallace Jones from her cus tody. Gollsborough was released on his own recognizance and will probably be brought before the Juvenile Court. The child was returned to his mother. Mrs. Jones is the mother of thir teen children. Her husband is now in the armed forces. It is claimed by Mrs. Jones that she left her young son with the Goldsboroughs during her recent confinement and the Goldsboroughs desired that the child be left permanently with them. Mrs. Jones further claims that after she returned, the child to his own home, Goldsborouigh came and removed him without her permission. the heat and let the corn stay in the oven an additional hour.

APPEARS DESTINED TO BE FASHION CENTER OF WORLD The United States stands on the threshhold of becoming the fashion center of the world, and American designers and manufacturers are de termined to lose none of the ground they have gained in making the fash ion industry the fourth largest in the United States. Topped only by food, oil and steel industries, our infant fashion indus try, so long stunted in its growth be cause of the awe in which our manu facturers held the Parisian fashion experts, is finally swelling its biceps and regarding the world fashion field with the “I’m the champ’’ look, ac cording to an article by Alice Hughes in the September issue of Cosmopoli tan. One of the outstanding students of fashion in the world, Miss Hughes makes this prediction so far as the future of American fashions is con cerned: “Paris, London, Moscow, Buenos Aires, Melbourne and all other world capitals will imitate the American Look far more eagerly than the world ever tried to ape the models of Pairs.” Although the United States’ fash ion industry received its impetus through the fall of France and the destruction of the Parisian fashion marts, it had been fighting for recog nition since the early 1920’5. “Clearly we in America have a husky, lusty, thriving fashion baby, a thriving youngster who has passed the creeping stage and is beginning to stand firmly on his own feet,” the writer states. “Have we enough eslf confldence to bring this child up to sturdy adulthood? Already our fash ion baby has rewarded us handsome ly in profits and prestige. Will our manufacturers, retailers and consum ers support loyally this baby whose talents were so definitely proven at a time of stress?” NAVY OPENS ENLISTMENTS TO MEN 18 TO 38 Effective immediately voluntary enlistments in the U. S. Navy are open to men 18 to 38 years of age, Lieutenant Commander H. R. Stone, Officer in Charge of Navy Recruiting for the State of Maryland, has an nounced. This is the first time since December 5, 1942, voluntary enlist ments have been open to men in this age group. Commander Stone further stated the opening of enlistments to men 18 to 38 now makes it possible for men 17 to 50 to apply for enlistmen in the Navy. The Recruiting Officer added com plete information concerning enlist ments in the Navy may be had at the following Navy Recruiting Stations in Maryland: Baltimore, Room 308, Post Office Building; Hagerstown, City Hall Bldg.; Cumberland, Post Office Building; Salisbury, Post Office Building. A good share of credit for making it possible to discontinue rationing of fruits and vegetables is due the home gardeners and canners. It is hoped that they will keep on saving home garden surplus and preserving everything they can, as unrationing is based on the assumption that they will carry out their plans. Truk, which we are at last acquir ing, may now seem something of % superfluity in tfcs war junk pile.
