State College Hints

The watermelon is one of nature's
prize packages of summer refresh
ment. And it's nice to know that a
big red slice contains a good supply
of vitamin C. also some Vitamin A |
"Ice cold'' is the only important
rule for serving watermelon. Slice
it either lengthwise or crosswise;
serve with or without salt. It is the
perfect dessert for a hot day because
it refreshes without bringing new
thirsts. And watermelon is an ideal
way to 4,top off" a picnic dinner.
When buying watermelons, it's
not always easy to pick a "winner."
Taste is the only final "proof of the
melon." If you can buy watermelon
halves, or get your dealer to "plug"
the melon, you can pet a nrettv pood '
idea of its color and texture. If you j
can't buy melons this way, you may !
be able to choose by color, weight. I
or sound. The best watermelons are '
bright lustrous green with a creamy !
yellow on the underside. They're
heavy for their size, and they have j
a deep sound when thumped.
Cooking apples is easy. "Be spar
ing with water" is .the only caution
the experts give. That's because ap
ples naturally have plenty of water
themselves. When you make apple
sauce or baked apples use just en
ough water to keep the fruit from
sticking and scorching.
Spices blend well with the flavor :
of apple dishes if you use them in
moderation. A pinch of salt helps and ,
either cinnamon or nutmeg will add !
something to the delicate apple fla
vor without stealing the taste spot- j
light. But don't let applesauce stand I
with nutmeg in it?that makes it <
If you'd like reliable directions j
for making apple jelly, write to the |
Homd Demonstration Department, j
State College, Raleigh. Apples are |
high in natural pectin, so they're
ideal for jelly-making. I

It is important that owners and (
Operators of seasonal business con- c

the employer to the Bureau of In- '

In order that there may be no mis- J
take in properly entering the earn- 1

'What's it good for?"
'Guns, tanks, and maybe
lart of a plane"
In the barnyards and gullies
of farms and in the basements
and attics of homes is a lot of
Junk which is doing no good
where it is, but which is needed
at once to help smash the
Japs and Nazis.
Scrap iron and steel, for example.
Even in peacetime, scrap provided
about SO% of the raw material for steel.
It may be rusty, old "scrap" to you,
but it is actually refined steel ? with
most impurities removed, and can be
quickly melted with new metal in the
form of pig iron to produce highest
quality steel for our war machines.
The production of steel has gone
up, up, UP, until today America is
turning out as much steel as all the rest
of the world combined. But unless at
least 6,000,000 additional tons of scrap
steel is uncovered promptly, the full
rate of production cannot be attained
or increased; the necessary tanks, guns
and ships cannot be produced.
The rubber situation is also critical.
In spite of the recent rubber drive,
there is a continuing need for large
quantities of scrap rul >bcr. Also for other
wu3te materials and metals like brass,
copper, zinc, lead and tin.
The Junk which you collect is bought
by industry from scrap dealers at estab
lished, government-controlled prices.
Will you help?
First?collect all of your waste ma
terial and pile it up.
Then?sell it to u Junk dealer, give
it to a charity, take it yourself to the
nearest collection point, or get in touch
with your Local Salvage Committee.
If you live on a farm, consult your
County War Board or your furnt imple
