Summer heat and humidity make
?pedal problems in clothing care for
the housewife. Wooden or plastic
hangers for clothes are better than
wire or cardboard hangers. Wire
hangers may rust in damp weather
and leave stains on clothes; card
board hangers become limp.
Leather gloves and pocketboolcs
stored often gather mildew in sum
mer. To protect them, dry in the sun
and alt; then,'wrap first in tissue
paper, and then in waxed paper.
Heat rots rubber and dries and
weakens leather. Therefore, hot at
tics are poor places to store winter
overshoes, rubbers and leather shoes.
A cool dry place is recommended.
Mud should be cleaned off shoes im
mediately, and never left to "dry on"
and make a permanent stain on the
leather. Clean white shoes off the
feet and allow them to dry thorough
ly before wearing. Leather is weak
when wet Shoes, worn damp may
stretch oat of shape.
Umbrellas folded up when damp are
likely to mildew. Leave them open'
to dry, then put away in a cool, dry
Meat broth or any clear soup made
of meat and vegetable Juices is a
popular first eourfe for dinner the
year around. Generally it is prefer
red piping hot in winter and cold and
Jelled in summer. The following sug
gestions for making it to serve cold
are offered by a food specialist.
When served cold, many people like
a little more seasoning or more con
centrated flavor. Added flavor may
be given with a bit more salt, and a
touch of spice, or fresh herbs. True
consomme is mads of several dif
ferent kinds of meat which give it a
characteristic blend of flavor. Many
people like tomato Juice and meat
broth combined and Jellied.
Jellied broth is most attractive
when it is served clear without a

Much Stored Grain
Is Lost To Insects
About 2,500,000 bushels of'corn and
about 600,000 bushela-of wheat, oats,
and barley are lost every year in
North Carolina to insects which at
tack the stored grain, and James T.
Conner, Jr., Extension Entomologist
at State College, sayB that these
losses can be largely prevented
through proper fumigation of the
More or less air-tight bins and I
barns are needed for fumigation and
this means that North Carolina needs
more good granaries. ,'
Conner sgys that prompt harvesting
of the corn crop will greatly reduce
possibility of infestation in the field.
He suggests that all infested grain be
removtd from storage places and that
the walu\ floors, and ceilings be
be sprayed with a 5 per cent DDT
If the grain has been infested in
the field, it should be fumigated at
time of storage with methyl bromide,
chloroplcrin, carbon disulfide, or
entylene dichloride. If the grain be
comes infested during storage, it
thould be immediately fumigated
with Any one of these four materials.
Some farmers have asked about
the advisability of aging DDT dust
along with the grain'when it is stor
ed. This is all right! according to
Conner, if the grain is to be used for
seed purposes only. No DDT dust
should be mixed with grain that is to
be used for animal feed.
He recommends either 3 per cent
or S per cent DDT dust in the treat
ment of seed grain at storage time.
The rate is % ounce per bushel and
it should be thoroughly mixed with
