When it will come and when the
corresponding break in grocery
prices and cost of living will fol
low are purely guess work. Facts
rare that farm prices are already
down considerably. Department
of agriculture says that since last
January prices of food grains are
down 30 per cent; feed grains
and hay, 26 per cent; soybeans,
cottonseed and peanuts, 18 per
cent and cotton, 8 per cent. Yet
in those nine months retail prices
of groceries from food grains and

According to information from
economic cooperation administra

is buying no wheat whatever
and cotton shipments have not
been up to expectations. The
huge wheat and com crops are

Bins on the farms are short
and there are disturbing stories
coming into Washington concern

some country elevators. These
elevators tell the farmer they are
full-up, can't store his grain and
turn him away from storage
under government loan. Later,
however, they buy up the grain
at distressed prices r?d then,
somehow, find rodfan for it in
There is more talk concerning
changing of the price support
system, at least lowering the

crats and Republicans voted for
these supports and neither party
dares to take the initiative, and
the guess here is that the next
congress will permit the price
support level of 90 per cent of
parity on basic crops to rim

Some agricultural economists,
however, declare that were it not
tor price supports on farm com

out not only on farm produce but
on all commodities and the loss
to the American taxpayers would
be greater that the amount they
pay out in subsidies.
It is fairly well documented
now that the Dixiecrat cause in

The Interior Department has
announced that more than $9,
500,000 will be divided among
six states as refunds from oil and
gas royalties derived from ex
ploration on public lands under
the O'Mahoney-Hatch act Of
these payments, 10 per cent goes
to the treasury, 52 Vi per cent to
the reclamation funds and 37 V4
per cent to the reclamation funds
and 37% per cent to the states.
It is the highest distribution on
record. States sharing in the dis
tribution are Wyoming, $3,386,
398; California, $2,609,550; New
Mexico, $1,700,984; Colorado, $1,

State College Hints to
Special metal cleaners which
require very little rubbing ?re
available for cleaning copper. If
you prefer, salt and vinegar or
lemon will do a good job.
Sprinkle the copper with salt and
then rub with vinegar or a slice
of lemon. Rinse well and dry
with a soft cloth.
In selecting all roasting and
baking utensils look for materials
sturdy enough not to warp when
exposed to high oven tempera
tures. Few seams, smooth edges,
and rounded corners all make
cleaning easier. Study the size
and shape of your oven before
buying casseroles, utility pans,
muffin tins, cake and pie pans.
Wherever possible select uten
sils which can be used for top
range as well as for oven Cookery.
Plain seams in unlined jackets
or in ravelly materials may be
finished by turning the edges
and machine stitching.
Here is a new idea and a good
one: Top a casserole of seasoned,
mashed squash with a meringue.
It's different. Do try it and use
your canned squash. To make
the meringue, beat two egg
whites with one teaspoon sugar,
salt and pepper to taste and one
half teaspoop mixed herb sea
soning. Sprinkle with paprika
and brown in the oven.
Add a dozen chopped pitted
dates and a tablespoon or two of
finely cut crystallized ginger to
your next Indian pudding. Plain
cream or ginger-flavored hard
sauce is best.
There's no short cut to the
home-baked bean. Long, slow
baking does it. There's no substi
tute for molasses. And put off
the whole affair if you can't get
some salt pork.
