State College Hints
For Farm Homes
By RUTH CURRENT
Home economists of the U. S. De
partment of Agriculture advise tak
ing a tip from the gas station boy
.who cleans your windshield, or from
the man who cleans hotel windows.
They have to know quick, easy meth
ods of getting clear glass. They nev
er use soap because they know that
it streaks the glass and is hard to rub
dry. And they never use rags that
shed lint either.
Do you feel like a flat tire at four
o'clock in the afternoon? Then, may
be what's wrong with you is your
lunch. Perhaps you need vitamins?
not the kind you get by buying pills,
but the kind you derive from includ
ing raw fruits and vegetables in
^our lunch. The next time you have
your lunch, be sure to include fresh
fruit, maybe bright yellow carrot
sticks, a couple of stalks of celery,
a tomato or a bit of cabbage. These
would all fit well in a lunch pail,
too. If you like sandwiches, try a
combination that includes a fresh
raw vegetable, a meat and chopped
raw spinach special, or try raisins,
cheese and carrot spread.
"Do your feet hurt?" asks the Con
sumer Guide. Seven out of 10 peo
ple, the Consumers' Guide reports,
have foot trouble of some kind, us
ually due to poorly fitted shoes.
You can't get your right size just
by asking the clerk for a certain size.
Don't go by the size of your last
shoes either, because there is no
standard for shoe sizes. Don't guess
I your size. Have your feet measured
each time you buy shoes, and keep
| on trying shoes until you get a real
ly comfortable pair.
Never buy shoes that need altera
Allow one-half inch beyond the
end of your big toe to the end of the
shoe inside. The ball of the foot (lit
tle toe to the great toe joint) should
rest on the widest part of the sole.
The shank of your shoe should fit
snugly under your arch.
Word In War Task
A word that is being used more
^md more- as American industry di
rects its energies to supplying the
armed forces with the weapons of
war is "know-how." It means just
what it says?how to make things
faster and better ? applying the
knowledge gained from long years
of experience. In turning out thous
ands of passenger and freight cars,
for instance, Pullman-Standard Car
Manufacturing Company developed
production techniques down through
the years. Now this "know-how" is
being used in the production of
tanks, howitzers, gun carriages,
shells and other war material and
in training workers to build submar
ine patrol vessels which soon will
slide down the ways. To build these
vessels, workers had to be trained,
but the knowledge ? the "Know
How"?gained in constructing mod
ern all-welded, lightweight freight
cars and streamlined trains simpli
fied this problem.
Printing of the country's new all
purpose ration books will take 87,000
pounds of ink, 7,500 pounds of paste,
half a million pounds of boxing.
The shoe should hug your heel,
with no gaping and no slipping when
you walk. The fit should be firm at
the bottom of the heel as well as at
