ls elali—The same good quality
food is needed for ull methods of
conservation, extension service nu-
trition specialists at Oklahoma A.
and M. college point out, whether
the food is to be canned, dried,
frozen, brined or stored fresh.
In each case vegetables should
be young and tender and fruits
should be full ripe. Both fruits
and vegetables should be freshly
harvested, graded and sorted for
age. size and quality.
For freezing — Vegetables are
blanched In boiling water, usually
for m to 2 minutes, and then
cooled by dipping immediately Into
very cold water. They are then
packed Into moisture vapor-proof
containers. The pack may be dry
or in a brine. The brine pack
seems to give best results for cer-
tain vegetables such us aspuragus.
Corn Is very good frozen dry.

contagious. The Mediterranean is not broad enough to keep
it long out of Europe.
But no sickness is self-produced, and every sickness is
spread by germs of one sort or other. We would like to
believe that the axis’ African sickness was an act of <»od,
which demonstrates the supremacy of mind over matter,
of right over might. Unfortunately that is not the ease.
The United States produced the little bugs that des-
troyed the axis in North Africa. We made them in our
industrial plants. They take the form of tanks and planes,
tank destroyers and cannon and mortars, machine-guns
and bazookas and automatic rifles and carbines, high-
octane gasoline, bombs and shells, land mines—that is to
say, of ordnance and munitions.
The victory was a united nations achievement. The
British provided most of the manpower. The French con-
tributed substantially to the constant pressure which
cracked Rommel's proud Africa corps. But all three armies

manpower vastly outnumbered the Germans and
Italians. Vet this numerical superiority would have been
useless if the arseiiul of democracy had not supplied the
materiel for an overwhelming superiority of fire power,
both on the ground and in the air.
Our M-4 “Sherman" medium tank proved its superiority
to anything the axis had. Our M-10 tank destroyer, mount-
ing a fully-enclosed three-inch high-velocity gun, demon-
strated its capacity to knock out anything Rommel had,
including the 60-ton Mark VI tanks from wnich the desert

indescribable volume of devastating superiority in fire
That, also, is how we must win in Italy, in France, in
Greece, in Norway, in Finland, in the low countries—wher

Drying Preserving food by drying
Is an "old" but very good method,
which may still be utilized when
food needs to be conserved and

Most all fruits and vegetables
can be dehydrated. However, the
method Is much better sidled to
such foods ns corn, okra, fleshy
fruits apples, apricots, pears, etc.
—and soup mixtures composed of
corn, okra, green lima beans, car-
rots and onions.
There are several methods that
may be used for home dehydra-
tion. The “sun" methud, a cook

or the oven
A controlled heat method gives
best results specialists point out

In many gardens. We must not

Use available irrigation water
on the most important food crops

beans and tomatoes are the espec-

In watering remember the card-
inal rule—soak the soil, don't just
sprinkle it. To be of value water
must penetrate throughout the
Plant root zone of the soil so be
sure to apply enough wuter when
watering to do this job. Better
water only a part of your garden
and do it right than to try to
water it all and only sprinkle, a
thorough watering twice a week
Is usually enough. Remember the
slogan of successful irrigation-
soak. don't sprinkle.
Soils should be stirred lightly
as soon as they are dry enough
to cultivate after each Irrigation.
