All Out Wartime Food Production Agricultural Department officials drew a picture recently of 30,000,000 farm people in wartime food produc tion of big oil crops to be made this year to defeat the Axis, of mountains of food being produced for United States forces and their Allies. They pointed* also to new records month after month in the production of milk, eggs, meats and other protect - lve foods. Despite having to pay the highest wages in years, farmers were report ed hiring more help this spring than last. However, a tight farm labor situation may develop later in the year. Farmers costs of production are considerably higher this spring than last but the long time gap between prices received end prices paid by farmers has been closed. Farm in come is rising seasonally now but leas sharply than this time last year 1 ^'AWSi CARSTMRS White Seal A SUPIRB BLENDED WHISKEY FOR THE MAN WHO CARES Kti.H 1 'roof, 7aib grain neutral apirita, Carstalrs Bros.

Broadway Reception for United Nations Heroes Fifteen United Nations air heroes were showered with ticker tape as they drove up Broadway, from the Battery to New York's City Hall.

At night they were honored by nunc than 20,000 people at a rally in Madison Square Garden. (Central Press) Largest comparative gams are from the unusually heavy marketings of hogs at relatively high prices. In come from other livestock and ani mal products is also larger than at this time last year. Officials pointed to the enlarged agricultural market ing outlets through Government j buying programs. Besides making up for lessened imports of many com modities, farmers are having to pro duce for a larger civilian, industrial and military population and to grow .large quantities for export. Large re serves also must be accumulated against future needs "The job of the Agricultural Mar keting Administration in charge of food supply activities in connection with the Lend-Lease program is to narrow the gap between the farm and the battlefields of democracy," says Roy F. Hendrickson, head of the U. S. Department of Agriculture agency. "We are geared," he says, "to speedy and economical purchase and distribution of food. During a 12 month period we have bought, under the Lend-Lease Act, more than 3 million dollars worth of farm products a day for the United Na tions. "The big problems are time and spaco. Time?gutting our food prod ucts to their destination as quickly as we can. Space?making the best use of the very precious rail and shipping facilities. Time and space problems are being licked." Millions of farmers are busy with spring work, the land is in good con dition and crop acreages are ex pected to be largest since 1933. Live stock numbers are the largest on record and still increasing. Feed re serves are large and pastures and range prospects are promising. Milk production continues to ex ceed former records. Egg production is declining seasonally but in com ing months should be bigger than in the like period last year. Market ing of 1941 fall hogs has been large with prices the highest in 16 years The hog-corn price ratio is the best for hog producers since the autumn of 1938. Production of high protein feeds is likely to break all former records by reason of the increased production of oil crops.

State College. He pointed out reen wood, and its failure to burn, | 3 the cause of persons turning to! ome other type of fuel. "Fuel wood normally requires rom six months-to a year to season iropeHy," Barker explained. "There ore, if the wood is intended for next winter's consumption, it should be ut not later than this summer." The Extension worker said that ?ersons attempting to speed up the eusoning of fuel wood should un 1 erst and the process through which rood goes when it normally dries ?ut. "The leaves of a tree act as lumps," stated Barker, "and the eaves ure continuously drawing wa er through the body of the tree. "To hasten the drying-out process he trees can be cut down and left mtrimmed for two to three weeks. 7his cuts the trees off from the [round. Still, the leaves continue to Iraw water out of the tree." Barker says this method of bar ic in largo supply this year as meas ircd by pre-war averages but do nest ic consumption is also far above ?re-war figures. Cotton and woolen nills running night and day are urning out the largest yardage of abrics in the nation's history. Pro notion of truck crops to bo market d as fresh products and to be can ed and dried?will be in good sup >ly. All products of the farm?food, eed and fibers?are enjoying the ?est markets in years.

The trees should bo left on the ground, untrimmed, for two weeks in the summer for all kinds of trees, and three weeks in winter for pines. After the "sapping-out" period, the wood can be cut into lengths desired and handled in the usual manner The Extension forester's office is urging that farmers prepare to use Industry Urged To "Patch And Pray' "Patch and Pray"?That's what Bill Batt, chairman of the Require ments committee of WPB, says Am erican industry has to begin doing soon, to keep existing machinery and equipment at work. Batt, one of the most outspoken of all officials in the early days of the war program, em phasizes that war production de mands have created a real shnrtngi* of materials?not merely a tempor ary dislocation?and one which will grow more and more serious. "I can see times when even a shipway may stand idle for lack of steel, and an ammunition line may slow down for lack of copper and brass," he said That means continuing, deeper bites into materials and goods that con sumers ordinarily would be using, so the "patch and pray" watchword ap plies not only to industry operators, but also to householders, automo bile drivers, people who run lawn mowers or hair dryers or hay balers or laundries pi- tvn.-writ.-rs m. (Government Stages \rinv ^ar Shows Mindful that even the most trust ingly patriotic soul tikes to see what he's buying with his war bonds and stamps, government departments are staging some eye-filling specta wood instead of other types of fuel for their home needs this year. This will help to relieve war-time short ages of transportation of coal and fuel oil. Farmers also can find a ready sale for surplus wood m near by towns and cities.

ILL. protect Health OX THE HONE FRONT ITT'S AN OLD axiom that "an * army travels on its stomach." Civilians in America's all-out war effort do, too. Uncle Sam knows that final Victory demands good health far behind our first line of battle. In the factory, business, home, and on the farm, the health of our "civilian army" is just as essential. To this army goes the task of pro duction and supply . . . requiring many men and women to supply one fighting man. We are glad to know that Elec tric Cookery is contributing much to the success of this "civilian army"... because it is the water less way, with accurately con trolled temperature. Clean and 1cl( ?fast, time-saving andleconomical, it answers the problem of secur ing tho most nutrition, better taste and flavor, and with less shrinkage. Yes, Electric Cookery helps protect health on the home front. It was true Yesterday. It is true Today. And it will be true To morrow. VIRGINIA ELECTRIC AND POWER COMPANY
