Cost Of Living
Vou can do much toward hrine-
ing down the cost of living and can
help in an indirect way in provid
ing food for other nations by plant
ing a home garden, savs Director
I. O. Schaub of the State College
"Most of us do not value our
gardens high enough because we
gather the produce in such small
quantities." Director Schaub said.
"We should remember that whlie
the contributions are small, they
are frequent and can add ud to a
considerable sum. A good garden,
he added, can easily contribute
from two to four hundred dollars
worth of nutritious vegetables."
"Our motto this year, continues
ut. scnauo, should be to grow
mole, eat better, spend less, and
feci better. The home garden (its
in with our program of adiustine
ourselves to less farm income, par
ticularly where tobacco is grown."
Mafly of the best gardens were
grown in town during the war
years, he said. These gardens are
still needed and the citv eardenjp
should grow a garden if he has
suitable space, enough time and
does not mind work.
Now is the time to eel vonr a.Tt-
dens started if you expect success
with early vegetables the Dirertnr
said. For planting dates and the
latest information on gardening,
