"“pHE home gardener has an im
portanj place in our program
of national defense, a much more
important role than he played dur
ing the first World war.
In the face of these facts, gar
deners are advised to do two
things: Plan to devote increased
space to vegetable gardening; and
perfect plans for the 1941 garden
so as to get the greatest possible
yield from the available space.
In stepping up yield from vege
table gardens of limited size, two
major devices should be relied on,
first, companion cropping — the
planting of fast-growing crops like
radishes, spinach, and lettuce be
tween rows of slower-growing
vegetables like tomatoes, and cab
bage. The fast growers will be
pulled and used before the other
crops need the space.
Second, succession cropping—
the repeated planting of major
crops such as beans, sweet com,
radishes, carrots, beets, and let
tuce. Moderate-size, new plant
ings made at regular intervals
during the early part of the season
will provide a stead3* supply of
fresh vegetables until the season’s

cannot be indicted and tried for a
murder if the victim lives for a
year and a day after the assault.

murder although the deceased did
not die from the bullet wound for
more than four years.
