With proper develop •eat and distribution of water sup grazing can be restricted on iMiergrazed, eroded or depleted tWCeland and the stick rotated WW other areas in keeping with taf« grazing capacity. Adequate trsier supplies on farm pastures, atale encouraging more uniform (grazing, will also aid pasture im pnunei]t practices, and decrease tacnage from erosion. Water facilities are, roughly, of 4m kinds—natural and constructed, springs. streams ar.d lakes are in aha first group.

Fertilizer Increase Half Million Tons American farmers this year will ise well over 11,000,000 tons of com mercial fertilizer—a now all-time Wgh. That's half a million tons wore than were used in 1943 and 4JM0.000 tons more than in li)! 0. Adjustments in analysis of com* fertilizers to be si Id in differ ent states have been made to insure !Si» be.it possible use of the avail ibie materials supplying nitrogen, phosphoric acid, and potash. The •strogen content of many of the •«rai!able grades has been increased »ewi*wha;, indicated supplies of this teuportan! plant food being about 35 •pes cent greater tJian last year. While s'ome fertilizer ingredients •re available in somewhat larger aoEcunts this year than last, all of Shem, including such important odtrogon-carrying materials as am jnonium sulfate, sodium nitrate, am-' murium nitrate, and fertilizer com yutnd:, are still on allocation by the Production board.

Those of •' v >\ you who want ) 1 that extra special j something to add 4 '£ll!' J .rA t0 our mpa ' s ~ during winter will want to take advantage of the crops and put them up in various forms. Most fall fruit is sweet and re quires little of precious sugar in the preserving. Making them into jams, butters or marmaladrs will give you the j >y of having the fruit instead of just t!-e juice. Pears made into jam or honey ha\e I ng been favorites throughout the nati>n, and these are recipes I know you'll like. Commercial pectin assures you of success in making the thick, jellied consistency, and miraculously gives you more jam than you dreamed possible out of a small batch of fruit. Ripe Pear Jam.

In fact, when you serve meat with a relish such as this, it will even seem to Lynn Says Popular Choice: You'll like fried chicken if it's dipped in cornflakes instead of bread crumbs for a change. Cottage cheese molds nicely when mixed with garden green onions, radishes, diced green pep per and seasonings. Serve on lettuce for a luncheon treat. Bread Pudding: Try it with brown sugar instead of white for a different touch. If you make it plain with raisins, try a lemon custard sauce. Scrambled Eggs on the menu? Serve with jelly, sauteed chicken livers or french fried shrimp. All are combinations hard to beat. Au gratin vegetables: Cabbage, cauliflower, potatoes and toma toes. For a topping try crushed cereal like cornflakes with butter and melted cheese.
