Phone 8 Coolidge, Arizona Arizona Dairymen Set High Record The way Arizona dairymen re sponded to the plea of Sam to produce all the milk jiossible as an aid to the war effort merits the h chest commendation, says W. R. Van Sant, extension poultry and dairy specialist for the state. He points out that the excellent record made by the state’s dairymen was accomplished in the face of ex tremely difficult feed and labor conditions. But. Mr Van Sant points out. even with the war end ! ed. the need for dairy production is I even greater. He adds that In an ticipation of coming postwar read | justments. dairymen will find it ! expedient to shift their programs to provide Increased efficiency. This, he says, can be*t be accom plished through the "S-Point ilairy Program for 1946,” a program de veloped on the basis that “effici ency and quality pay.” Here are the highlights of the 8- jxdnt program: 1 Feed each cow for economical production. 2. Improve pastures to save milk dollars. 3. I'se best methods of harvest ing to retain feed values. 4.

When she was three, she was coasting in a soap box wagon which got beyond her control and hurled her against a telephone pole. She could not get up. She com plained about her legs feeling “funny”. A doctor was sent for and when he had finished the examination, he looked serious. She has never walked since. Rut she hits done well. She is making about a thous and dollars a week. Her name is Connie Roswell—one of the famous sing ing “Roswell Sisters.” When fate takes something away from one it usually leaves something in its place. Fate, in this instance, left a big fat Negro woman, cook in the Boswells’ New Orleans home. She also was a singer of “spirituals.” While the other children were out playing, little Connie would wheel her way into the kitchen and listen with rapt attention. Time passed. Connie grew older. One day somebody said, “What are you going to be when you grow up?” “I’m going to be a singer.” The idea was ridiculous. One day the Mississippi river went wild. Its angry lashing waves grew higher. Holes formed in the dikes, the waves gnawed and pawed and snarled at those holes until they increased to tragic size. Then the mighty flood de«* voured farms and villages and parishes. Money must be raised for the sufferers. Connie and her sisters put on entertainments from the rear end of a truck. They did so well in helping others, they were called to Chicago. Next Hollywood sent for them . Iu no time at all they were on the air. New Aluminum Pot* And Pan* Appearing Again In Store* Aluminum and stainless steel ket tles and pans that many home makers have been eagerly await ing are now reappearing in store* To help you select the one that will best meet your needs, household equipment specialists of the U. S. Department of Agriculture offer 8 points to check: 1. Balance. The pan and its han dle should be well-balanced so that the pan stands steady even when empty. Too heavy a handle makes a tipsy pan that is awkward to use and may cause dangerous spills of hot water or foot!. 2. Surface. The smoother the pan that is. the fewer the cracks at joining*- the more durable and easy to clean it will be. 3. Bottom. A flat bottom helps keep a pan stej»dy and means fast er heating and more economical use of fuel on electric, coal or wood ranges. Pans for use on elec tric stoves should have dull-finished bottoms to save fuel. A dull finish absorbs heat In contrast to a shiny finish which reflects It. 4. 'Sides. Straight sides are more economical of heat and also of space on the stove than flaring sides. 5. Handle. Handles of pans and covers should be comfortable to grasp and Insulated against heat. 6. Cover. A close-fitting cover is essential for many cooking pro cesses. so buying a pan and cover together is often worth the extra money. 7. Thickness. Thin .lightweight sheet aluminum is les* expensive, lighter to handle but also less dur able than the heavy cast metal. Thin ware is more easily dented, bent and scorched than heavy ware, so heavy is the buy in pans due for heavy use those for everyday cooking, for a Job like mashing po tatoes. and for the heavy-handed or absent-minded cook. 8. Metal. Stainless steel is more durable than aluminum of the same weight and thickness. It does not darken in cooking alkaline foods as aluminum does .but. once darkened by overheating or scorching, it can not be Tightened as aluminum can. Aluminum has the advantage of spreading heat more evenly so cooks more evenly with less chance of scorching.

But he points out that in a bearing orchard It is much more difficult and sometimes im possible to grow satisfactory crops for green manuring. There is usu ally too much shading by the tops of trees and competition by the roots to obtain a satisfactory cover crop. In many other cases, Mr. Tate observes, danger from exces sive erosion prevents the growing and proper management of green manure crops In orchards. The land must be seeded and kept in per- Receives Discharge LLOYD D. PETERS Sgt. Lloyd D.
