Two Recipes Given
For Making Soap
Making soup ;it home is becoming
a necessity in these soap shortage
d.ivs. Extension specialists in horn:
economics at State College present
two standard recipes for usvooketl
ai.rt evoked soap.
Six pounds of fat with 2'i pints
of co'.d waUr, and 1 can of lye will
n.ake about 9 pounds of soap. Six
pounds of fat is equal to 13'2 stan
dard measuring cups of liquid fat.
Pour water into a small enamel,
stone, or glass container. Dissolve
the !ye in the water, stirring with a
woo n spoon or paddle until dis
solved. Mix in a well ventilated
room but not in a breeze. Lit the
lye water cool until the container
feels cool to the hand. Melt the
f.it in an enameled pan and stir with
an emimeied spoon or a wooden pad
die. Cool the fat to the correct tem
perature throughout the pan.
Cool the fat until the spoon begins
lo leave a track in the mixture. Pour
he lye solution into the fat in a
small, steady stream, stirring slowly
in one direction. Continue until the
mixture is a honey-like texture. Let
it stand for 10 to 15 minutes until
the mixture becomes thick like salad
dressing and then pour into molds
o:' wooden boxes, lined with waxed
paper. After 24 hours it is ready
to cut. Cure soap for several weeks
before using and never let it freeze.
The formula for cooked soap is 2
quarts of melted fat, 1 can of lye.
1 cup of liquid ammonia, 1 quart
of water, and 1 tablespoonful of bo
rax dissolved in one-half cup of hot
water. Dissolve the lye in water and
It stand until lukewarme. Add
slo.vly to the fat, stirring constant-

A permanent pasture on many
farms in North Carolina usually is a
few acres of poor land surrounded
by a wire fenc, with ubout one-half
of the area or more in woods ar.d
t'ae remainder in gr.i.-s that has bee"
overgrazed for a long number of
vears and not fertilized.
John Arey, in charge of Extension
dairying at State College, says taut
the average dairy cow expends about
as much energy in finding grass in
such a pasture as she obtains from
it. It's no wonder that average milk
production per cow is exceptionally
iow on many farms when compare?
with the rriik yields of herds on im
proved permanent pastures, carefu'.ly
seeded to both legumes and grasses,
well fertilized, and so managed as
to prevent overgrazing In early
spring, late fall, and during dry
periods in summer.
On the basis of Agricultural Ex
periment Station records, the Exten
sion Service has outlined a forage
crops program for North Carolina
that may be adapted to the needs
on any farm. Full information on
the plan is in the hair's of county
John Arey, in charge of Extension
dairying at State college, says that
it's a mistake to try to grow a gooi
pcr.ranent pasture on waste land.
