School Children Need Hoi Lunches
The College of Agriculture Exten
sion Service is encouraging tho serv
ing of hot lunches to school children.
Surveys made in other states show
that many country school children
are undernourished. Part of this Is
due to cold lunches nt school, espec
ially In the wintor, it is believed,
Everyone knows how disagreeable a
cold lunch is on n cold day, It Is
bad enough for grown persons, let
alone children. Tenchers are encour
aged to arrange for nt least one hot
dish at noon, such as a vegetal) lo
soup, cocoa, a creamed vegetable, a
moat dish or n dessert. If It is
impossible to servo a hot dish, it Is
urged that tho qold lunch include a
pint of milk per child. Surveys 'm
Illinois show that many children suf
fer from the lack of sufficient milk.
Teachers and parents Interested in
hot school lunches should write the
College for Information and sugges
tions. Many Joining the Farm lliiremi
More than 10,000 farmers have
joined the Nebraska Farm liuronu Fed
eration in tho last month, Nine
counties hnve conducted member
ship campaigns nnd seven) more are
now In the midst of adding now
members. Ninety per cent of the
farmers In tho counties po fnr can
vassed have joined. Tumbling prices
and the money stringency are help
ing to draw farmers together for tho
protection of their interests. The
Farm Bureau Is an orderly attempt
to solve tho economic problems of
agriculture. It Is non-political,
constructive In Us Ideals and objects,
and appeals to judgment anil not to

now in progress Is tixpecN.nl to In
