Vitamin C Recent tests on the availability of vitamin C in raw cabbage and home canned tomato juice showed that the vitamin C of both products is as completely used as pure vitamin C itself. Four ounces of fresh, raw cabbage or seven-eighths cup of tomato juice will provide about two- thirds of the recommended daily al­ lowance of vitamin C. If used to sup­ plement each other, there should be no lack of this essential dietary factor. Citrus fruits and other raw green foods contribute vitamin C. Orange juice is the best source. Seal Sales Good but Many Moire Needed to Fill Quota The peoplei of Hamilton County are showing their approval of the announc­ ed plan of the Hamilton County Tuberonloeia & Pablio Health Asso­ ciation to offer a free chest X-ray examination to every person in the county in the fall of 1946, “reports Mrr.

Ttefft, Exeentive Secretary and Seal Sale Chairman. “The response during the first week of the local TB association’s Christmas 8 al Sale has been mos^t generous bat there is still a long way to go to the $1,600 quota necessary to finance the proposed program. This annual sale of Christmas Seals is the local association’s sole means of support. 83 cents of every jlollar contributed in this way remains right here in Hamilton County in the local aissociatiou’s tieasury, 12 cents goes to support the work through­ out New York State, and the remaining 5 cents goes to the National Toberculosis Asscciation for its work.” Any person who did not receive Seals through the mail fr^m the Hamilton County Association or who wish ad­ ditional Seals may secure them from the local health chairman in each com­ munity.

Modem Accordion The accordion, as we know It to­ day, was first made by a Viennese, Damien, in 1829, and introduced in the United States shortly afterward.

The old type Chinese instrument was operated by the infusion of breath.

Machinery Revolutionized World** Fanning Methods Up tmtil 1800, farming methods had remained much as they had been in the days of Julius Caesar, and humanity contmued to suffer from inadequate food supplies. The change from irpn-covered wooden plows to cast iron plows had marked agriculture’s chief mechani­ cal progress. - ’ Most of the farm machinery which has done so much to revo­ lutionize jhe world’s agriculture originated in the United States. 'The reaper was invented in 1831, the mower and threshing machine in 1834, the first combine in 1836. These implements-reduced the time re­ quired to harvest an acre of wheat from 36 tnan-hour|i to less than 12. . Today various labor-saving ma­ chines on U. S. farms are esti-^ mated to number in excess of 10 million. Further, this same me­ chanization of farming methods has been extended to practically every land, through the ei^ort of Ameri­ can machines. Beforie the war, U. manufacturers exported approxi­ mately 125 million dollars worth of ■ine: lnes contribution to the war, turning out farm machi a yesir, a fourth'go- Farm implement ' 1,200 in number, have made a direct ing to Europe, Farm im fac­ tories in the United States,, about war machines and parts. Some of the larger factories have been en­ gaged 75 per cent in war work. New Flavor The brine left from a jar of sweet pickles may be substituted for vine­ gar when making a salad. It will contribute an entirely different and delicious new flavor. Heavy Fine An Ohio hunter who violated the migratory bird regulations by kill­ ing 28 ducks in one morning, re­ cently paid a fine which amounted to $17.80 per duck. New England Catch Six hundred million pounds of sea­ food are caught by New England fishermen in a normal year, 85 per cent of this consisting of only 10 species. First Co-ed Schqol In 1833, Oberlin institute, first co­ educational college in the .United States, was established at Oberlin, Ohio. ^ Wild Greens Many common wild greens from fields and woods have been found to be rich in vitamins A and C. Gestation Periods Average gestation periods are: sow, 114 days; ewe, 147; goat, 150; cow, 283; and mare, 340. Polish Mirrors Old tissue dress patterns are fine for polisiiing mirrors and windows.

Calf Care Calves should be kept in individ­ ual pens, where practical, until they ’,are three to four months old. After reaching that age they may be iShly bedded daily. Small calves should not be exposed direct­ ly to hot summer sun for long pe­ riods. A constant, fresh supply of water should tie kept available to the calves. After the calf is four to six months old, it should have ac­ cess to all the tender grazing it will take. Spring and early summer calves wiH need daily feeds of dry hay and sufficient grain to keep them in growing condition through !t year. Late sprmg. However, they should bejwatched to make sure that they continue to grow. Most From Soap , To get full cleaning power of soap, use just enough and dissolve it thor­ oughly. Mild soap is best for ordi­ nary washing; stronger soap, for very ^ dirty or greasy clothes. Strong soap or chemicals are hard on both fabrics and washer. Soap flakps, chips, beads and powder save time by dissolving quickly in water, but bar soap, shaved or. grated and then made into a soap jelly with a little boil­ ing water, may be cheaper. Whisk the water about as the soap goes in, to dissolve it completely before the clothes go in. This prevents soap spots on clothes. Use just enough soap to make suds about two inches thick. Too much or too little soap does not wash satisfactorily. If the suds thin out in washing, more soap may be, added. Another Term Needed When President Roosevelt com­ pletes his fourth term, he wiH have served 15 years, 10 months and 16 days' as chief executive—^longer than any other man. But he will not have equaled Pres. George Washington’s record as commander- in-chief of the armed forces—16 years, 3 months and 24 days. Chocolate Substitute Home economists of the U. S. de­ partment of , agriculture remind homemakers that three tablespoons of cocoa plus one teaspoon of table or cooking fat can be sub­ stituted in most recipes for a one-ounce square of chocolate. Test Tube William A. Hayes, an engineer, comes forth with an electron, tube which can measure one one-hundi trillionlh of the electric en e r ^ in jss than minute electric current in the dim- the light from an average home reading lamp. This is less than the Fur Producer ^ Louisiana is rae of the greatest producers of animal fur on the con­ tinent. Alaska, acknowledged to be one of the most important fur-pro­ ducing regions, is a fairly, 'good sec­ tion to make comparisons. Alaska is one-thirteenth the size of Louisi­ ana, yet the volume of marketable to s yielded in this state each year is three times that of the nortiiem territory. Conscientious Objectors ; Conscientious objectors in the F irst World war totaled 3,989 in all camps, .according'to Encyclopaedia Britan- Inica. Of these, 1,300 “accepted or were assigned to non-combatant service;” 1,299 were furloughed for alternative service; and 450 were sent to prison by courts-martial. The. remainder were stiU in camps when' the armistice was signed.

Escape Pimislimeiit German war criminals of World \ War I escaped practically impim- ished. The German government re- quested that their nationals ac-^ cused of violating the laws and cus­ toms of war be tried by German tri­ bunals and the Allies consented to this procedure.
