They 'are move tender at the early stage, and the flavor is finer and more delicate. Gather leafy crops early in the morning. it possible, before the sun wilts them. If they are to be kept until a later meal, wash them well, cover, and place in the {refrigerator. Pick peas and sweet corn within an hour before shelling and shucking for the kettle; if gathered very long before cooking, they lose both sweetness and flavor. Gathering any of the vegetables too long before using causes loss of vitamins. ! Scrape or peel vegetables thinly; valuable minerals are just beneath the outer skin. Young carrots, [beets, and summer squash should merely be scrubbed and never peeled at all. Neither should vege- tables be soaked in water before cooking: this, too, causes loss of minerals. I Cook vegetables quickly and only until barely tender. Usually they taste better if they are slightly undercooked rather than soft and mushy from overcooking. In boil- ing, use only a small amo>'\t of water, saving whatever lie : re- mains when the cooking is ii... <?d. If there is too much to serve with the vegetable, keep it to add to soup. i In boiling vegetables, make sure the water is really boiling before adding them. If put over the fire in cold water, vegetables lose color, flavor, texture, and much of their food value. • Vegetables fresh from the garden need very little dressing up to make them deliciously appetizing. Simple methods of cookery are best with the simplest of seasonings added. Until you have eaten vege- tables fresh picked from your own garden and properly cooked, you do not know the true taste of Trege- Itables at their best.

TAXES AND This is the most costly war of all •time and everyone of us might as well recognize the fact that we will - be paying for it for years in the fojan of higher taxes. Our advice is this: Make taxes part of your budget. There are many reasons why you should provide for taxes in advance—but the best rea- son is that it's plain (common sense.

In an effort to avoid the evils of inflation, we can certainly accept a limitation on profits, a limitation on jwages, a ceiling on prices, and pay- heavy federal taxes for war purposess for the duration. We can do these* things much more cheerfully for a limited time than be slaves to the- Huns for generations. We are engaged in arr \all-out\* war, and that means either sacri- fices for the period of the war, or slavery. » * • ^.wr«^jr g 'BUSINESS' AND ' 4 •' AMERICAN PEOPLE ' WE, THE\ RANK AND FILE - of the American people, are a part of American business. We are the si- lent partners. It makes no differ- ence as to what our job may be„ whether that of a mechanic, mer- chant, clerk, member of a profes- sion, a farmer, or what have yc'_i„ the continuance of that job is de- pendent, directly or indirectly, uport business. Business conducts an intelligent effort to sell its products. It buys newspaper and periodical space, time on the air, billboards and other forms of advertising, in which to* tell of the advantages to the pur- chaser of those things business pro- duces. In its advertising it does, not tell of the advantage to busi- ness gained by the sals of its prod- ucts. It tells only of the value to> the purchaser. But business makrs no effort to* sell itself to the people, its silent. partners. Business takes it for granted that we know all about this. American institution in which we^ are so vitally interested; that we are\ familiar with our relationship to that institution and that It can cali upon us whenever- it is in need OE assistance. J, Not realizing our relationship te» business; not realizing how vital the| continuance of business is to ourj personal welfare, we do not heed its call. To us, the rank and file of the| American people, business is anj enemy that will prey upon us if we- do not prey upon it. It is our part to take from business all it is pos- sible to collect, not realizing that int doing so we are taking from our- selves. What business needs is as compe-- tent an advertising manager and staff of copywriters for itself as i t has for its products. It needs toj sell its silent partners on its value? to them.«. The fact that business has not done this—has not shown us ouri relationship as silent partners—is largely responsible for our present attitude of \soak business.\ > FARM LABOR IN CALIFORNIA THE GOVERNMENTS of the Unit.; ed Nations, including our own, are- calling on American farmers for! greater quantities of food. The farm- ers are asked to produce more at at 1 time when they, like all other indus- tries, are short of help because of the call to the colors of hundreds of thousands of farm boys. •-. *«\i?| California proposed to solve, or atf least partially solve, the farm helpJ problem during the fruit and grain] harvest season by inducing school] boys of 15 years and over to forego) their summer vacations and volun-i teer for work on the farms and in the canning plants. High school teachers encouraged the idea, and some thousands of boys volunteered Then the United States Employ- ment Service stepped into the pic- ture with a statement that the boya could work, provided they paid for union membership cards and paid [union dues for the period of em- ployment. i These California boys will be per- knitted to do a patriotic job if they 'pay the unions for the privilege of (doing it and agree to work not more than 40 hours a week. That at a time when hundreds of thousands of] farm boys are fighting for the liber- ties of the American people, for our] cherished philosophy of government*' for our very life.
