ty given by the bridegroom-elect's

State College Hints
For Farm Homes
By RUTH CURRENT
Eight questions which every rural
homemaker should ask herself about
the war are:
1. Am I growing food, fiber, and
feed for home and war use?
2- Am I taking the best care of my
machinery, my equipment, clothes
and other useful things?
3. Am I buying less and buying
4. Am I buying my share of War
Savings Stamps and Honds every
time we sell farm products?
5. Am I doing my part of the work
at home and on the farm?
6 Has my family been kept in good
health during the war?
7. Am I sharing with my neigh
8. Will my son, brother, father,
husband or sweetheart find a better
home, community, state and nation
when he comes back from the war?
The first question here is, of
course, the most important. Food is
strength and strength will win the
war. We must all eat . . . soldiers
sailors . . marines . . our Allies . . and
those of us at home.
Make every acre count. Raise
things Uncle Sam needs. Stamp out
insects and diseases in plants and
livestock. A garden and an orchard
will help cut your food costs and im
prove your diet. A poultry flock
will give you eggs as well as meat.
Milk is necessary too. Our fighting
forces and our Allies need great
quantities of pork, beef and lamb. To
produce this food, you'll need feed

"Boy, it's cold at

"Well, it's your own fault, Bill.
You wouldn't be shivering if you'd
changed from Summer underwear

too hot indoors. Particularly com
