G. PEELK Manager WILIIAM8TOK, V. Ob Careless Cooking Destroys Vitamins Valuable vitamins are destroyed when tender springtime greens are boiled too long or stirred too much. Miss Ruth Current, State home agent of the N. C. State College Extension Service, is warning North Carolina homemakers. At the same time, she pointed out the need of more vegetables and more different kinds of vegetables in the daily diet so as to maintain good health The State home agent explained that vegetables are excellent sources of vitamins and minerals, and that overcooking tends to destroy some of these essentials, especially Vita min C and Vitamin Bl. Miss Current also pointed out that the addition of baking soda to leafy vegetables causes the loss of Vita min C. One of the popular and nutritious of summer vegetables is the toma to, an excellent source of Vitamin C. Tomatoes may be served either fresh or canned. In other timely suggestions to North Carolina homemakers. Miss Current said that tacks, nails, and screws are household necessities in making small repairs. The rainy days of April, when farm people are forced to remain indoors, are a good time for making these repairs. Another job that may be done dur ing rainy days is the sharpening of household tools. Still another job is making fast loose boards and the repairing of doors with broken hinges. A strong wind may pick up either and do great damage. Marriage Actually Solves Problem Fort Bragg?Marriage doesn't al ways create problems. For Private Harris Wysocki it actually solved one. Private Wysocki, taking out his government life insurance, couldn't decide on a beneficiary, owing to a "double family" caused by his mo ther and father divorcing, then re marrying a second divorced couple, his father marrying the wife of the man his mother married. Both fam ilies lived in the same house, the best of friends, and Priyate Wysocki came to love all four of his parents very much. Since he couldn't pick out his own beneficiary from this wide choice, a letter was written to the War De partment in Washington to ask ad- ^ vice. Each day Private Wysocki would go to his headquarters to see if any reply had been received re- , garding his perplexing problem. For some time none was. I But one day,* all by himself, Pri vate Wysocki solved the problem. He married. His wife nosed out all four parents as beneficiary. * ?
