"THANKS A MILLION"
FOR MORE THAN A MILLION
Forest Fires Burn Area
Greater Than Illinois
Fires last year, blackened more than
40,000,000 acres of forest land an
area larger than the State of Illi
nois. As a part of its fight to check
such huge losses the United States
Forest Service is collecting and
studying "fire weather" information
from forest stations.
Latest weather-measuring devices,
such as the thermograph, psychro
meter, hygrothermograph, anemome
ter, meteorograph,, and duff hygro
meter, have been brought into use
by the forsters so that they may as
certain the probability of fires and
be prepared for emergencies.
This work was started in 1922 and
the ' United States Forest Service
credits its storehouse of information
with the quick suppression of many
Preserve Nut Meats
By Hot-Water Process
A new home method for keeping
nut meats fresh using a water bath
canner such as many housewives
use to process fruits is announced
by the United States Department of
Many farm families who make a
winter industry of preparing shelled
nuts for sale or home use, often take
a loss when warm weather causes
the oil in the nuts to become rancid.
Commercial concerns avoid this stale-
ness or rancidity, caused by light and
heat in combination with air, by va
cuum packing the nut meats.
The only equipment needed for va
cuum packing nut meats at home,
says R. C. Wright, of the Bureau of
Plant Industry, who developed the
method, is glass fruit jars to hold
the nuts and the water bath canner
to exhaust the air from the jars. He
"Fill glass jars with nut meats
and adjust the glass lids and rubbers
but do not tighten them. Set the
jars in a water bath canner either
a clothes boiler or big kettle with
a rack on the bottom. Use enough
water to reach almost to the top of
the jars. Keep the water boiling for
15 or 20 minutes. Then seal the jars

Larger Peanut Crop
Expected Next Year
The possibility of a further in
crease in peanut acreage next year
is seen by the Federal Bureau of
The acreage this year was the
largest on record, the bureau stated
in a report sent the State College
extension service, but dry weather
curtailed the crop in certain' areas.
In North Carolina, the production
this year will probably run close to
417,800 pounds, it was estimated, as
compared with 429,775 pounds in 1935.
The slight curtailment in produc
tion, together with diversion pay
ments from the AAA, helped hold
prices at a favorable level, the re

to cause an Increase in next year's
