Q. What is the best time for top-

A. Applications made from Fcb
Iruary 15 to March 15 usually give
! the best growth, say agronomists of
State College. Late topdressings
usually do not increase growth or
! yields as much as those made dur
I ing the indicated period. The ag
! ronomi.its recommend 100 to 200
I pounds of nitrate of soda, 80 to 160
i pounds of sulphate tf ammonia, or
1 50 to 100 pounds of ammonium nit
i rate. On potash deficient soils, use
i 150 pounds of 10-0-10, or mix the
nitrogen material with 50 pounds of
muriate of potash or one acre. The
agronomists suggest that growers
get all of their fertilizers, includ
ing topdressings. as early as pos
.-ible so as to help solve storage, la
bor, and transportation problems.

million farms have been enrolled by

The Soil Conservation Service, in
cooperation with other agricultural
agencies in Hoke County, is mak
ing a special effort to encourage
safety on the farm, according to J.
C. Hutchison, Asst. soil conserva
tionist of the Pee Dee-Cape Fear
soil conservation district.
Prevention of accidents is not only
a matter of personal concern to farm
families, but it is an important con
sideration in the farm war produc
tion program. Compilations from
National Safety Council reports
show that 30 million man-days
were lost last year as a result of
preventable accidents on the farms.
If this amount of work were ap
plied continuously in the produc
tion of food crops, it would provide
enough food to supply 7,500,000
people for a period of 105 days.
Through the practice of safety mea
sures, virtually all of this lost time
could be avoided.
Rapid progress has been made in
reduction of accidents in industry,
as a result of organized safety pro
grams. But virtually no progress
has been made in the reduction of
accidents on the farms, where the
rate is extremely high.
Now that labor is scarce on most
farms, lost-time accidents present
a serious economic as well as a per
sonal problem. With farmers work
ing long hours, accidents are likely
to increase unlass every possible
safety measure is used.

thirds of the meat available for all
needs in 1944 has been allocated to U.

Wartime cookery calls for expert
gravy-muking for today meat fla
vor is too precious to waste in gravy
that is lumpy, curdled, greasy,
pasty or otherwise unappetizing.
Slow and steady is the first rule
for the gravy-maker. Take time to
measure carefully, mix thoroughly,
and cook slowly with steady stir
ring. Hasty mixing or hurried
cooking causes lumps. Gravy made
without measuring may be greasy
and separated, too thick or toj thin.
For best flavor and rich brown col
or, blend the flour with the fat.
Then slowly add cool or lukewarm
liquid, while stirring over low heat.
The right proportions are: 1 1-2 to
2 tablespoons each of flour and fat
to 1 cup of liquid.
To make gravy in a roasting pan,
first remove the meat to a hot plat
ter, then pour the drippings into a
bowl. Skim off the fat that rises to
the top. Back in the pan, mix to
gether equal measures of flour and
fat over low heat. Gradually stir
in the cool liquid which may be

Last, but far from least in mak

browned on the pan should be work
ed up with the liquid to give flavor
and color. Other seasoning possib
ilities are: finely chopped onion,
