eight 6-inch anti-craft guns and 12

air at mystery about these endears
and gtimpeas of them have been rare
for foreign observers. The latest
rumor la that the Japanese have re
moved one of the three main gun
turrets in order to give the cruiser
the necessary stability.

AUTOMOBILES VS. HOUSES
The solution of the housing prob
lem in the United States depends
upon developing mass-production of
houses, says Harvey Wiley Corbett,
architect at Radio City.
Mr. Corbett declares, "If we at
tempted to build a car today the why
we build a house it would cost $150,
000 and would not run." Under pres
ent conditions of mass-production and
coordinated manufacture in assem
bling all the parts of an automobile
at the factory, the labor cost, accord
ing to Mr. Corbett, of putting to
gether all the parts is "3.40 for each
There certainly seems to be an op
portunity to improve the method of
house construction In the United
States. Some smart industrialist
will begin the fabrication of housing
units, which will be fitted together
on the building lot. It is barely pos
sible that large construction organi
zations will visit various localities for
the purpose of erecting fifty or a
hundred homes in a few weeks.
Meeting the objection that the pre
fabricated homes will be standard
ized, Mr. Corbett say* this Is not
necessary as each builder will be able
to construct his model, with definite
prices for each unit that he puts in
to his structure.
Every consumer knows that no
matter how bad a product may be,
there is always somebody else who
can make it worse and sell it cheaper.
It is also true that no matter how
good a product may be, there is al
ways somebody who can make an in
ferior article and palm it off on the
public as "just as good."
Because of these facts, The Enter
prise has always supported legislar
tion tending to protect the public by
compelling sellers to state definitely
what their product is. The new Pood
and Drug Act is an effort to protect
'consumers by requiring more accurate
labelling of containers, so that pur
chasers will be able to tell from the
; label what they buy. We do not pre
tend that the new Act is perfect, be
cause we are not familiar with all
-of its terms, but its general purpose
strikes us as being a step forward.
The United State Department of
Agriculture, in which a bureau has
| charge of tits enforcement of the
Act, points out that the provisions
of the law do not go into effect until
June 25, 1989. Intelligent buyers,
however, will find out a good deal,
about file products they purchase if
they will pay attention to the labels
on the containers. Certain drugs sad
devices will be labelled to wan buy
ers against dangerous misuses The
j presence of habit-forming drugs wfil
also be declared.
The progress thus made in the la
belling of food and drugs should be
extended to other fields. For exam
ple, when a buyer purchases clothing,
the label should give full informa
tion aa to the material in the gar
ment. There an other products on
the market today when the consumer i
should he given better information as
to the materials used. This would,
of course, avoid deception sad the
sals of inferior products on the as
sertion that they are "just as good*

Family Cow Should
I Get Balanced Diet,
The old family cow has taken a lot '
of abase in bar time and kept on pro- i
ducing milk for her master; bat she >

gets enough of the right things to 1
A good cow not only cuts down
on the household food hill, bat she ]
contributes much to the health and i
general well-being of the family, said '
John A. Arey, extension dairy special- <
1st at State College. She deserves the
best of feed and care.
A cow has a^lpige stomach and a
tremendous capacity for coverting
feed into milk. On full feed, she will
use about half the nutrients In her
feed to maintain her own bodyweight.
The rest she converts Into milk and
When her rations are cut down, her
milk production falls off, she loses
weight, and she goes drier sooner than
normal. A cow will often give mOk
when she really needs to use the full
amount of a scant feed supply to sup
ply bar own body.
In the course of a year, an average
size farm cow needs 18 bushels of
earn, 18 bushels at oats, 600 pounds
of cottonseed meal, two tons of hay,
and one to two acres of good pasture.
The hay should b^f good quality,
and the pastutage should he a good
growth at grasses or legumes. Win
tar pastures of 1 rye and crimson
clover or of wheat, barley, oats, and
crimson clover are good for supple
menting the dry feed.
Three or more different feeds, say
600 pounds of corn meal, 800 pounds
ci??gtt#nseed meal, and 200 pounds
of grothd oats at wheat tarn will
make a good grain ration. Give a cow
all the roughage she will eat and
allow three quarts of grain par d*F
for each gallon of milk she gives.
