CENSUS OF EX-SERVICE MEN
Five Million Questionnaires to Be Used
In Obtaining Views on Compen
A nation-wide census of ex-service
men will be taken by the American
Legion. Five million questionnaires
have been printed for use in the Le
gion's "service and compensation"
drive, which will aim toward the com
pilation of vital statistics and which
should afford a definite Indication of
the exact cost of providing compensa
tion to all veterans.
Tho various state organizations of
tho Legion will conduct their drives
separately, and nt their own date.
Every man Interviewed by tho census
taker will be informed of tho five op
tions of the pending compensation bill
and bo asked to signify his attltudo
toward tho measure and his choice of
the five features. He will also record
whether he was ever wounded, gassed,
or suffered nn Injury In service. As

pensation clnlms, and all ox-soldiers
will bo urged to enrry government In

It is assumed thnt the wlde-nwnke
gnrdener has been .busy long before
the wcathor Is warm enough to- sow
any seeds in the open ground; thnt
a window box or hotbed has been pro
vided, and that a supply of plants of
tomatoes, peppers, early cabbage, and
eggplant are under way to set In the
garden as soon as danger of frost Is
If plenty of south window space Is
available, tho United States Depart
ment of Agriculture advises that such
crops as snap beans, cucumbers, musk
melons, and even sweet corn may be
started In llower pots, paper bands or
berry boxes filled with good soli, and
they will be of considerable size by
tho time the air Is warm enough to
plant them outdoors. Plants that
grow In the house or In the hotbed
must be hardened or adapted to outdoor,
conditions before they are set In the
open ground. Tills Is accomplished
by gradually exposing them t to the
open air during tho warmer part of
the day and later at night, care being
taken that they are not caught by a
sudden cold snnp.
Hardening Early Plants.
When the plants nre grown In boxes
or trnys, the boxes mny be carried into
tho open each day and the plants al
lowed to become gradually accustomed
to -tho outdoor conditions. If they are
In u hotbed or coldframe, the sash or
other cover Is lifted off during the day
and rcplnced at night. Later the cov
ering Is left off entirely; however, It
should be kept -close at hand to bo put
on at any time that the wenther should
Plants set In the open ground may
bo protected from frost by turning
small boxes over them nnd covering
the boxes with a little earth. Old
berry boxes are Bomctlmes used for
this purpose, but should be covered
completely with soil, ns the plnnts will
freeze Just as readily underneath tho
exposed boxes ns If left In the open
without nny cover whatever. A good
method of protecting plants Is by set
ting n common roofing shingle or n
smnll piece of bonrd nt an angle over
each plant. These shingles can be set
on tho side to protect tho plants from
tho sun during the daytime, or they
may bo placed on the opposite side In
order to protect tho plants from the
wind nnd allow the sunshine to reach
In some enses gardeners have pro
vided small frninos, on the top of
which nre fitted single panes of glass,
and ono of theso frames Is set over
each plant or hill to protect It. Tho
glass should be so arranged that It
citn be partially removed during the
wnrmer part of the day In order to
prevent the temperature becoming too
high Inside the frame. These protec
tors give good results when used over
hills of cucumbers, muskmelons and
summer squashes, ns well ns over
plnnts of sweet popper, eggplant nnd
Points to Remember.
There are a few points In connection
with the transplanting of house-grown
plants to the garden that nre worthy
of special attention. In the first place,
tho plnnts to bo transplanted should
be watered a few hours before they

TRAINING TO STAKES
dirt to adhere to tho roots nnd glvo
them n better stnrt when they are
planted out. If the plants are grown
in flower pots, In paper bands, or
berry boxes, they should ho carried to
the garden In their containers. Pot
grown plants should be loosened by
Inverting them gently and knocking
the edge of the pot on something solid.
Tho plants then nre set with the ball
of earth adhering to their roots.
If the plants havo been grown In pa
per bands or berry boxes, tho sides
of tho bands or boxes should be silt
with a knife nnd removed ns the plants
nre sot. Where the plnnts nre grown
In trnys or In n hotbed, a knife should
bo run between the rows, cutting tho

plnnt lifted with a cube of enrth at
tached to its roots.
Use Fresh Furrows.
The holes or furrows In which the
plants nre set should not be made un
til ready to transplant tho plants. If
made too soon, the soil will dry out
nnd cnuse the plants to wilt. Under
all circumstances, It pays to apply a
little water around the roots of each
plant as It Is set; this causes the soil
to fcrm a close contact with the roots
of the plant. After the water has
soaked Into tho soil, dry earth should
be filled In around the plnnt and
slightly Armed. Plnnts set in this
manner will Invariably start without

few more pluuts tltnn nre required for

BOYS AND GIRLS' GARDENS
Youngsters Gain Valuable Knowledge
From Tilling the Soil; Increase

Junior gardeners nnd members of
tho boys nnd girls' clubs havo been
important factors in Increasing Amer

work hns been Joined with the school

not only produces moro food hut teaches
the youngsters self-dependence and tho

Teachers havo reported thnt tho ef

more thnn repaid by the knowledge
of Nature gained by the pupils. Both
