KOUSEWIVES OVER- PROTECT DISPOSERS Too many housewives are not getting the maximum advantage from a major appliance--the gar- bage disposer--because they tend to coddle it, according to Chang- ing Time. the Kiplinger Mage- zine. An article in the current issue of the magazine reports that to- day's foodwaste disposers are better than models that have been in use ten or fifteen years, and are intended to take hard- er wear. The mechanism in use ten years ago had diffictdty cat- ching and grinding such slimy wastes as chicken skins or fatty fish skins, the article notes. Quantities of fibrous wastes pea pods. corn husks, artichoke leaves--could jam the works. Today's improved models' can gobble these materials with ease, according to Changing Times. Food wastes which are recom- mended for disposers include egg shells and coffee grounds; cut up bulky materials, such as melon rinds and orange skins; hard wastes, such as fruit pits: soft wastes, such as fruit and vege- table peelings, even sticky bat- ters if poured in slowly. Bones are recommended ,too, up to the size of chop bones. The editors of the magazine warn that there are certain kinds of wastes that can be disposed of only with caution. Melted grease, for example, should not be poured into the drain. Instead, it should be allow- ed to harden, then washed into the grinder with cold water. The solidified particles will be brok- en up and carried off without coating either the disposer or the drain line. Paper, the article notes, is tricky, too. Hard-surfaced pap- ers such as newspapers and wrapping paper will lump and either jam the grinder or clog the drain. Soft-surface papers such as paper towels and nap- kins, on the other hand, can be disposed of successfully if fed into the hopper sparingly along with soft food wastes. While cigarette tobacco and paper cause no problems, filter tips can mat over the shredding ring and reduce its efficiency. Fibrous vegetable matter will be less likely to cause trouble and be gone more speedily if it is FOWLED DOWN---Here is the "evidence" at Boston airport, where starlings sucked into a big Eastern Air Lines Jet liner engine forced the plane to land with its 108 persons aboard. You can see parts of the chewed up starlings in the intake, and on the landing strip. Investigation of a takeoff crash there previously led to theory that starlings caused it. More than three score i~ersons lost their lives in that one. fed into the disposer in small pieces. Tabooed for the disposer are metal, leather, cloth, string, rub- ber, plastic or any other refuse that could not be readily shred- ded. And because of the limita- tions of the sewer system which handles the waste, the editors advise against glass, china or ceramicware, even though the mechanism could crush it. These heavy substances might collect in the drain trap or lodge in the drain line and clog it. The best treatment for a dis- poser, the article concludes, is a steady diet of mixed hard and soft food wastes. Use only cold water, leave it running long enough to clean the disposer thorvughly and never, under any circumstances, use a chemical drain cleaner. ~:XPERI34~NT STATION RECEIVES NEW ~EQUIPM'EN'r The North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station received three new experimental pieces of equipment valued at $10,000 from the North Dakota State Wheat Commission, it was an- nounced today by Director Arlon G. Hazen. The new equipment consists of a fully automatic experiment- al flour mill with a pneumatic conveying system, a smaller au- tomatic experimental mill and a mixograph, all designed to furth- er improve present methods of evaluating the quality of hard red spring wheat, Hazen said. Present capacities for milling new selections of wheat will be nearly tripled with the use of the experimental mill, since the sample size can be varied from two to twenty pounds without any change in the flour pro- perties. Paul E. R. Abrahamson, ad- ministrator of the State Wheat Commission said the Commis- sion feels the basic information obtained from research with the new equipment will prove valu- able to both producers and mil- lers of North Dakota hard wheat. "Wheat marketing has become complex and requires a vast sup- ply of facts and resources" Aibra- hamson said. "One of the first steps in any program it to de- termine the quality and potential of the product involved so that the over all program can be projected on a second long-range plan." The smaller mill does not have all the advantages of the larger, but is capable of processing ex- tremely small samples of wheat, as small as 7 ounces, and still reproduce the properties of the flour milled from them. The mixograph is a record- ing mixer requiring about 9 ounces of flour per sample, so it is a perfect companion to the small mill, Hazen said. Since physical dough properties are a main criteria in selecting a good milling wheat, this new equip- ment will enable new crosses to be screened for quality at a much earlier stage than is done at present. More wheat samples could be tested each year, Hazen said, and the better new varieties might then be available for dis- tribution earlier. ]'he Bonds you own are better than ever, too The new 3~A% rate means your sav- ings grow faster than before with U.S. Savings Bonds. $3 becomes $4, or $3,000 becomes $4,000 in just seven years, nine months.
