Such a system proved its benefits at the Purdue sta- tion. The test was conducted in 12 small fields from 1942 through 1945. All the fields had three-year rota- tions: corn, wheat and meadow. Six however, were More we- farmed with corn- tar boosts men practices; the corn yield, other six with a con- servation system. On the fields which had the bene. fit of extra fertilizer, contour crop- ping, manure, lime and deep rooted legumes, the water loss from runoff for four years was eight inches, compared with 17½ on fields farmed under the common system. Soil loss was only 1.8 tons under conserva- tion against 8.8 tons with the com- mon system. Organic matter losses were 492 and 976 pounds, respec- tively, while those of nitrogen were 16 and 77 pounds; phosphorus 19 and 62; and potash, 10 and 24 pounds. Corn yields averaged 92 bushels per acre against 62 bushels on the common fields, in 1942. By 1945 the corn output reached 122 bushels per acre, compared with 71 bushels on the common fields. Wheat yields averaged 25 bushels and 15 bushels. KNOW YOUR BREED Golden Palomino , By w. J.

Can Your Most Luscious Fruit (See recipe below,) Fruit Preserving This is the year many women nave waited for--the year when they could obtain unlimited quanti- ties of sugar to put up all the fruit in their orchards, and berries in their patches. For many of us, it has been so long since we put up fruit in any quantity that a quick brush-up of methods is essen- tial. As in all big undertakings, the underlying organ- izational work is most important. and this can be done the day before. The day before you begin actual canning, check on equipment to be sure that it works properly. For fruit and berry canning you will need a water bath, which may be a large kettle or broiler, fitted with a rack, and a tightly fitting cover. Or, you also may use a pres- sure cooker for processing, but this is not as essential for fruits as it is for vegetables. You will need several large pans and kettles for preparing the fruit and for making the syrup. You also. vill need to prepare jars, checking them for cracks and imperfections, and washing them in hot soapy suds. Make certain you have enough covers or lids. Estimating Amounts Although fruits and berries vary in size and moisture content, it is still possible to make some sort of estimate as to how much syrup and the number of jars you will need. For sweet fruits, you will use a syrup made of 2 cups of sugar to 4 cups of water; for slightly acid fruit, use 2 cups of sugar to 3 cups of water; for acid fruit, 2 cups of sugar to 2 cups of water is ample. If the fruit is very acid, 2 cups of sugar to 1 cup of water is essential. The syrup is made simply by add- ing the sugar to the water and boil- ing together for 5 minutes. If you are canning large fruits such as peaches and pears, aI10W 1 pint of syrup to a quart jar of fruit. For small fruit, or berries. you will need only a half pint of syrup to the quart. The amount of fruit usually de- pends upon the size, but ordinarily we count 2 pounds of fruit for the quart jar. This will aid in estimat- ing your yield. lethod of Packing Some fruits and berries are hot- packed, but most women prefer us- ing the cold pack method for pre- paring fruit for canning as it takes less time. If the fruit is carefully packed, there will be little floating. Wash and clean the fruit, peeling and coring, slicing and stoning when necessary. Pack into sterile jars and attach the lid, using manufac- turers' directions. Process by placing the fruits in a boiling water bath, making cer- tain that the water comes to two LYNN SAYS: Save Time, Work, Money With These Hints Lettuce leaves tossed into soup will absorb fat and give you less greasy soup to serve.

If the water tends to boil away during the proc- essing time, it's a good idea to have a kettle of boiling water near by from which the supply can be read- ily replenished. Count the processing time from the time the water starts boiling. When processing time is finished, remove jars (with a,,jar lifter to prevent burning the fingers) and place on thick layers of newspaper to cool. For many of the new type lids, the manufacturer does not approve inverting the jar to test for leaks. This is one reason for not inverting certain types of jars. When the jars are cool, wipe them off, label and store in a cool, dark place. Use This Time Table If you are using the water bath, which is recommended by most ex- perts, you will want to observe the processing time very care- fully. The follow- ing fruits are processed for 20 minutes: apri- cots, blackber- ries, blueberries, cherries, currants, gooseberries, peaches, pears, plums, raspberries, rhubarb and strawber- ries. Apples and pineapple, processed in the same type of water bath, will require 30 minutes, while quinces require 35 minutes. If you are using the pressure cooker for processing, keep the in- dicator between 5 and 10 pounds pressure and process all fruits, ex- cept pineapple and quinces, for 10 minutes. The two exceptions will require 15 minutes processing. Queries Answered How high should fruit be packed for canning? Pack fruit and syrup to within one inch of the top. How much salt should be added to water in which peeled fruit is placed to prevent discoloration? Add one teaspoon of salt to each quart of water used. What makes fruit and tomatoes float? Too much processing, too heavy a syrup or too loose a pack may be the causes. Why should fruit for canning be uniform in size and ripeness? Fruit should be evenly ripe and about the same size so that proct.ssing will be equal. Can I can over-ripe fruit? No, it's too difficult to get a good prod- uct. Use over-ripe fruit and ber- ries for fruit butters, as the fruit will have to be mashed and there is enough sugar to act as a pre- ser.vative. Released bY Western NewsPaver Union. To prevent mold from forming on smoked meats such as bacon, ham and sausage, dip a cloth in vin- egar and wrap around the meat. Store in the refrigerator. Use fruit juices fol- soaking and cooking dried fruits. It will give them better flavor as well as more food value. Cheese stays moist if it is covered with a thin coating of butter before being stored in the refrigerator. Cheese which has hardened and can- not be sliced should be ground and used in grated form.
