very little to do with it.

all hard and indifferent inside, with
no thrill, no sparkle don't you
know you are losing the whole
point if you give up at. 40 or 50
At 40 you are only beginning to
get a true sense of value as to
people, as to your own make tip
inside and out, as to what life is
all about and what is worth going
Never repress anything gay and
young and human inside . of you.
Repression means disease and

alive. Enthusiasm. It is the magic
potion of youth. Diet Magazine.

In Erosion Control
Strip-cropping makes a pretty
design on the landscape. At the
same time it is one of the most
effective means of controlling soil
erosion and building , up the fer
tility of the soil.
Hundreds of fields in the Pied
mont and mountain regions of
North Carolina' are. planted to
strips of close-growing crops, such
as small grain, alternating with idle
strips which are to be planted in
row crops this spring, reports the
State College extension service.
Strip-cropping reduces run-off
and erosion, increases rain pen
etration, simplifies the rotation
system and in many cases elimi
nates the heed for terracing gently
As the rain water runs off the
row-cropped strip into the strip of
close-growing crop, it is filtered
and deposits its soil in the thick
vegetation, thus gullies are not al
lowed to form, A. A. Cone, project
manager of the soil conservation
service in Mecklenburg county said.
Water here in the dense Cover
crop strip penetrates into the soil,
Cone pointed out. .
Point rows can be eliminated by
growing the row crops on strips
of even' : width while the thick
growing crops occupy the uneven
strips. To -be most effective strips
should be laid out on the, contour,

Make Tough Biscuits
How much the cook kneads the
dough may determine the char
acter of baking-powder biscuits.
The least possible handling just
enough stirring to moisten the in
gredients and then dropping the
daugh on a baking sheet produced
tender, crisp biscuits, uneven in
Shape. The same dough spread on
a board, cut and baked, produced
even,' crusty, flat biscuits. Dough
which received 15 to 18 strokes of
kneading gave tall, light, flaky,
tender biscuits. But too much
kneading produced tough,; flat,
rln.p-orrainid biscuits ihecause the
- ' .
gluten in the flour was developed
to the point of toughness ' and
some of the leavening was lost.
These four different types pf
biscuits were made from the stand
ard receipt which calls for 3 cups
of sifted flour, 4 teaspoons baking
powder, 1 teaspoon salt, 6 table
spoons fat, and 1 cup of milk; or
enough to make a soft dough, and
baking in an oven registering 450
These are some of the findings
reported - by the bureau of home
economics as a result of recent
studies in making quick breads.
Biscuits made with, the same in
gredients and baked in the same
oven may vary widely if the dough
has different handling.
. This study also showed that fold
ing and rolling - the dough several
times produced flakier biscuits than
kneading it on the board, and that
the less flour added to the dough
on the rolling board, the 'better.
