THE REDLEGS' BIGGEST 'FAN'--Slowly working back and forth over the infield at Crosley Field, Cincinnati, Ohio, a helicopter i helps groundkeepers prepare the playing field that was soaked by three days of rain. The huge downdraft from the craft's rotating blades helped to dry out the ground a few hours be- fore game time. The ballclub was well satisfied with result Conducted by STAIN REMOVAL (E. S., Bismarck) For Mrs. G. W., Bismarck, I have had excellent results in removing rust from articles of clothing by putting fresh lemon juice and then salt on the cloth, blending the two ingredients just a little by rubbing them. I then place the article in the direct sun to bleach. If rust re- mains, add more salt and lem- on and put in sun again. In orner to remove scorch from cloth, I put the article in the direct sun, preferably on grass. I wet the scorch stain with plain water and keep wet- ting the spot if scorch does not bleach out the first time. Let the article become thoroughly dry before wetting again. FRESH PINEAPPLE? Mrs. F. B., Bismarck) Would someone please answer a question for me? I want to know why it is that you can't use fresh pineapple in gelatine desserts. Thank you. ..- KNIT SKIRT? (Mrs. T. H., Mandan) Does anyone have the direc- tions for shortening the skirt of a knit suit? I would be most grateful to anyone who can give me this information. EtEEL SAVER Mrs. C. J., Mandan) For Mrs. D. B., Bismarck, many gift catalogues are ad- vertising an inexpensive sponge rubber pad to fit over the gas pedal of your car to protect heels. Or. you can buy a sponge- rubber kneeling pad, cut a three or four inch wide strip from it and fasten it to the gas pedal with rubber bands. Before I tried this, I wondered if it would adversely affect my con- trol of the gas pedal, but I found that it didn't. MAIN DISH RECIEE? Mrs. R. L.. Bismarck) At one time I had a recipe for a guaranteed-to-be-mouth- watering main dish--but I've lost it. It was similar to beef strogan- off. The meat was browned and then allmed to simmer in mush- rooms and wine, then served over rice. Does anyone know the precise mixture of ingredients and cook- ing time? Thank you so much. SALLY OREMLAND HARD BOILED EGGS Mrs. J. C., Bismarck) I would like to knoe how to hard boil eggs so that they will be easier to shell. Any helpful information will be apreciated. WATERMELON CAKE? Mrs. P. S., Bismarck) I want to make a watermelon cake for my son's birthday in a few weeks. Does anyone have BILLINGS COUNTY PIONEER Survey Underway on Excess Irrigable cres The bureau of reclamation is conducting a survey of excess irrigable acreage in the propos- ed Garrison diversion project. Involved is irrigable land held by one owner in excess of the 160-acre limitation reclamation laws place on water rights that will be granted to one individ- ual. Conducting tile survey is Elm- er GaMey, Bureau of Reclama- tion agrieuturist. He has studied ownership in three irrigation districts and is working on a fourth. Studied thus far are Dickey, Sargent (45,000 acresL Lincoln Valley, Sheridan county, 6,000 acres) and Warwick - McVille 47,000 acres). Currently under analysis is the 14,000-acre James river district. These four were among the first irrigation districts organ- ized and are exFected to be included in the initial stage of Garrison diversion. Gahley's survey indicates that in the three districts it will be necessary for ownership changes on some 60 farms out of 553. In most cases, however, the only thing involved is to con- vert the title to joint owner- ship of husband and wffe, thus making the allowable acreage 320 instead of 160. This can be done on 47 of the 60 farms with more than 160 irrigable acres. On the 13 others, Gahley said, it will be necessary for the owners eventually to dispose of their surplus irrigable acres but under the law they may retain and irrigate them for the 10- year "development period" pro- vided in the repayment con- tract. One owner in the Dickey-Sar- gent district appears to have the greatest problem. His irri- gable acres total 1,156, or "al- most four times the amount of water rights to which a husband and wife would be entitled. BARBECUE IS TASTY Give that old Sunday favor- ite, chicken, a new tastebar- beetle it. That's the suggestion of Esther N. Schoewe, North Dakota State University home extension agent for Burleigh County. A cllicken Daioecue doesn't have to be a "jumbo" sized event o be good, she says. By follow- ing the suggestions offered here, your familiar broiler will have a new and wonderful taste. Plenty of barbecue-size chick- ens are on the market these days. Birds from 2 to 3 pounds a recipe? In the Wrong, Lone Ranger A Bismarck dance band re- turning from a dance date, early Sunday morning came upon a head-on smashup and stopped to give help: .... "How did this happen?" they asked driver Number one. The girl in Driver Number One's ear said "This other ear was eom/ng right down the middle of the road." "The heek he was," said Driver Number One. "This guy was coming down MY side of the road!" 'Yeah," gdmitted Driver Num- ber Two, who had been silent to this poinl, '"but I was going very fast." WOODY ORNAMENTALS BULLETIN AVAILABLE One of the most popular .bul- letins of the Agricultural Ex- periment Station at NDSU-- Woody Ornamentals for North Dakota-- is again available. Some 20,000 copies of the first edition of this guidebook for homeowners and gardeners were distributed. The publication was out of print during much of the past year. The 72-page bul- letin has been prized because of the completeness of its in- formation on shrubs and trees adapted to North Dakota for home and farm planting. .! are right for halving. Larger birds may be quartered. The secret of barbecuing is a slow fire and a tasty sauce. Here is a family size version of sauce recommended by Mrs. Schoewe. 1 pint vinegar b pound butter 1 tablespoon garlic juice 1 pint water 2 teaspoons tabasco 1 tablespoon onion juice Start the fire. Brush the birds with the sauce. Lay them cut side down on the grill. Turn every 5 to 10 minutes, depend- ing on the heat of he fire, brush- ing with the sauce before each turning Cook 1 hour to 1 hour and 45 minutes, depending on the fire and the size of the chickens. One sure way to tell when your barbecued chicken is redy for the platters-twist the drum -tick; if it comes loose in its socket without pressure, it is ready for eating. DROUTH IS MODIFYING PRODUCTION OF HONEY Current drouth conditions have somewhat altered the anticipat- ed honey yields in North Da- kota for this season. Lack of moisture reduces bee pasture as well as pasture for livestock with the result that western North Dakota beekeep- ers are tending to moce colonies into areas of more favorable l,i rainfall, says David Noetzel, as- sistant entomologist at NDSU. Recently, the harvesting of soll bank alfalfa and clover in eastern sections of the state have placed many beekeepers in a critical situation, so far as bee pasture is concerned. Un- less enough rain comes to pro- vide late summer revival of these legumes, North Dakota beekeep- ers probably will harvest one of their poorest honey crops in years. Noetzel says it is highly de- sirable that beekeepers who have bees pasturing soilbank land cooperate in every way they can with the soilbank own- er. A lesser amount of bee pas- ture at this time will help carry bees to a fall flow, providing rainfall is received in the mean- time.
