    SECTION TWO—
Farmers Urged To
Be More Careful In
Grading Tobacco
Millions of Dollars Can
Be Lost By Careless
Preparation
J R Hfltsoti, President of Tobac
eo Associates. Tnc., issued a state
ment this week urging farmers to he
more cautious in ft radios their current,
crop of tobacco to help overcome in
creasing complaints by foreign manu-1
facturers who object strenuously to
the ‘mixed’ condition in which our to- (
Raced is brought to market.” j
“Since over one-third of the tohae-i
eo grown is exported, it is essential |
that every effort be made to prepare,
the leaf for market in such a manner,
as to please in so far as possible the;
foreign manufacturers who use our
tobacco*” he declared.
Hutson said that “in the face of in
creased competition from foreign pro
ducing areas, tobacco growers could
lose millions of dollars yearly unless
they do a better job of grading their
product for market. A good job of
preparation for market assures the)
realization of the highest possible in- ,
come from tobacco, as well as heiiv
c hold our foreign markets which pre
of utmost importance to us if wemre
to insure a steady market at a fair
price for tlm surplus above normal do
mestic requirements.”

Precautions Decrease j
Food Poisoning Cases
SuriynoWifne. j.. rdenicV time .but. it's ■
also the season when food poisoning
takes its toll.
Aocor l’ n, ro loki Pritchard. State
College food eotive 1 Cation Ist. this npis

ed , r fn h food.
USD A researchers say that cooked
food accounts for most eases of food
poisoning., 'in hot. summer weather.
And it’s food cooked in advance end
not promptly chilled or kept chilled
that takes the heaviest toll. Though
cooking destroys most bacteria, it
won’t protect the food from contami
nation after cooking if the food isn’t
refrigerated.
It’s the stewed chicken that stood
all night on the kitchen table in its
broth, or the stuffed eggs that were
tucked down into the picnic basket for
several hours, or the custard or cus
tard-filled cakes left standing at room
temperature that may cause you trou
ble.
Miss Pritchard says that food pre
pared in quantity for community pic
nics and family night suppers too fre
quently doesn’t get proper refrigera
tion.
If you’re planning potato salad, fish
or chicken salad as a part of your pic
nic menu, make sure that it is well
chilled and kept cool until time to use.
When preparing these recipes in large
quantity, place the food into smaller
containers for refrigeration. If a
large bowl of salad is placed into the
refrigerator, it may not chill rapidly
enough to prevent spoilage.
“Better not” are good words to keep
in mind if you’re debating whether or
not to save some of that chicken salad
left-over from the picnic. If it’s been
standing out on the table several
hours, spoilage may have occurred—
spoiling that you can’t always detect
by sniffing or tasting.

Mrs. Scott Harrell says that it may take a few seconds more, but it can j
save strained muscles and* bruises, or even a fatal fall if you use a kitcht*n
ladder stool in reaching hard-to-get-at shelves. Ladders, available in many
styles and types, make good work stools and utility chairs. They also make
sturdy, unique furniture.
