State College Hints
By Ruth Current, State Hoim
Demonstration Agent N C.
Black walnuts need prompt gath
ering and hulling as soon as they
are ripe. A handpower corn shel
ler can be used for hulling, but
rolling nuts under foot on the
ground also removes hulls easily.
After hulls are off, dump nuts
immediately into a tub of water
and churn with a broom until
clean. Then spread nuts on the
floor in a well-ventilattd room to
cure. Stir nuts frequently so that
there will be no molding.

milk as a beverage at three meals
it is difficult to get in his quart a
day. Also, bi cause of the child's
smaller stomach capacity, dividing
his food fairly equally between all
three meals is much better than
having him "catch up" at a heavy
dinner at night. Packed lunches
are apt to be monotonous and un
balanced unless milk, fruit and
vegetables are included.
Highly seasoned foods, stimulat

have very little place in the child's
diet. Fruit or milk desserts may
be added occasionally.
