"Home gardens," Mrs. Griffin said, 'will achieve their purpose better if hey are laid out with at least a five rear war in mind. We still have a ong row to hoe, and complacency s out for the duration." She cautioned against a tendency o plant in home gardens only vege ables which can be harvested this rear. Perennial crops, and small truits such as strawberries, raspber ries, blackberries, quince, grapes and rherries should be included wherev er possible, she added, even though they will not yield a crop for two years or more. "Even if this war should be won this year or next." Eubanks com mented, "the whole hungry world will turn to the American farmer as the only bulwark between it and mass-famine. Then as now, the wel fare of the world and the health and strength of future generations will depend on the American farmers' ability to produce as never before. "Many small farmers have over looked excellent opportunities for profit in the production of small fruits," Eubanks continued. "They make good outlets for family and off-season labor, and because of high vitamin content are a very val uable addition to the family diet" Eubanks pointed out that the gov ernment is asking every farm family to grow as much as possible of the food needed for home use. He said that fruits and berries are especial ly adaptable for canning in these days of sugar shortage. An important feature of Farm Se curity Administration loans is that the loans provide financial support for a long-range planning, thus mak ing it possible for farmers to start American Forces In A Third Successful Attack On The Japs (Continued from page one) Germany, but officials recently back from Berlin warn that the German people are not likely to "crack up" under the strain, that outward pres sure will be required to smash that country. Little important news is coming out of Washington today. One report states that the extension of the gas rationing system to the west is now considered likely Plans to lower the draft age from 20 to 18 years are being carried over until next year, a spokesman stating that no action was to be expected in that connec tion unless unforseen developments present themselves. War Production Board Chief Nel son said today that American pro duction, three months ahead of schedule, is greater than that of Britain now. Plant Managers Arc Praising the Women Plant managers, always unwilling to make comparisons of efficiency ratios between men and women workers, are beginning to get more outspoken about it, now that females are moving into vital war jobs in ever-increasing numbers. Last week officials of the Pullman-Standard Car Manufacturing company seem ed glad to give credit where credit was due?i.e., "to the ladies." The concern's huge transport plane wing plant put 100 women to work on light sub-assemblies a few months ago. Now it comes out that produc tion hit 125 per cent of the plant's ' quota, partly as a result of the wo men's efforts. "The women, bless them,' one executive said, "are plen ty good." Many of the original 100 women have graduated to more re sponsible positions one is laying out templates; another has a place on an inspection bench. "A good worker's a good worker, male or fe male, in this so-called man's war," said the spokesman. ? Baskets The factory value of baskets made for the fruit and vegetable industry in the United States is more than $14,000,000 annually, according to a recent estimate. Climbing The production of frozen foods continues to climb, with the 1942 to tal expected to run about 823,931,000 pounds as compared with 555,881,000 pounds in 1940. a well-rounded, well-balanced farm ing program, and to get away from dependence on "year-at-a-time" cash crop farming, Eubanks concluded.
