Farmers Go Collegiate
Despite the spotlighting of planes, tanks, block busters,
and all the new scientific marvels of war, our army still
marches on its stomach. That is one of the reasons why the
government is trying to increase American farm production.
Its latest move is the government-sponsored Farm Exten
sion Program at Ohio State university. Here Kentucky
farmers, who had wrested a living from the soil by the hard
old method of strenuous manual labor, were trained to
operate modern farm machinery that enables one man to
do the work of several and thereby produce more food for
our armed forces, allies, and
home front. Four hundred
farmers were trained in three

is the time of year to lay down the
heaviness of spirit and to think only
of goodwill toward men.
There’s an elegance about Christ
mas dinner which you can’t avoid
even if you serve the simplest of
food. Perhaps it is the spirit with
which it’s prepared and the blessing
with which it is eaten. Whatever it
is, make the most of it with what
ever you have.
And now to the bustling and busy
ness that is Christmas. If your
choice for the dinner is ham, and
you’ve been saving your points for
it, prepare it thus:
1 smoked ham
2 cups fruit juice
1 cup brown sugar
2 dozen whole cloves
Place the ham rind side up, on an
open roasting pan. Bake in a slow
oven <325 degrees) for 18 minutes
per pound for the average size ham,
10 to 12 pounds; 16 to 17 minutes for
larger hams, 12 to 15 pounds. When
ham has been baked for required
length of time remove from oven
and cut away the rind. Score ham
with a sharp knife, rub sugar over
surface and stick „
with cloves. Pour
1 cup fruit juice
over it. Return to
oven and bake at/
400 degrees for \
20 minutes. Baste
remaining cup of juice.
If the ham is precooked, it needs
only to be heated thoroughly before

It would no longer be practical to
give an elaborate recipe for fruit
cake, so here is one more simple
than I’ve given in other years. It is
delicious. Pick over xruit carefully,
chop rather than grind it:
•Wartime Fruit Cake.
1 cup dried apricots
94 cup sugar
'/i cup shortening
1 cup seedless raisins
94 cup candied cherries
94 cup candied orange peel
94 cup candied citron
94 cup blanched almonds
94 teaspoon grated lemon peel
2 cups flour
94 teaspoon salt
Eoil apricots 1 minute, drain, then
slice. Cream sugar with shortening,
add eggs beaten until light and
thick, then combine with fruit and
almonds. Slice cherries, orange
peel, and citron before measuring.
Add flour sifted with salt and beat
thoroughly. Pour into small, greased
oven glass dish, cover with glass
top and bake 194 hours in a slow
oven, 275 degrees.

You may have scraps of plywood
