Special Free Information Bureau
Opened In Washmgton, D.JC.
The Dispatch to Act As Clearing House of
Information Between Government
; and People
The Wilmington Dispatch believes it can render no' more lmporlanf and'
i practical service to its readers than to acquaint them with the results ojJtha. greai
1 work the American' government is doing for them. ".'u ' uiliiV
uur ovcrnmem is inc greatest organization aevoica lo a singlQ purposev
that the world has ever known. The keenest minds, the broadest learning, th
most expert technical skill are turned, day in and day out, on, every problem that
confronts the American people. Problems of the factory, problems of the city,
questions of health and hygiene, questions of opportunity, of self-help and -help
for othersall these, and many more, are studied in federal laboratories and in
the field, by men at the head of their professions, with the, resources d,the richest'
nation on earth behind them.
The work is being done for you. Your government1 Jar doing ifYou-are
entitled to the benefit of its results.
Merely to know the details of government activities, td see and understand ,
the great machinery behind them, is to take a new pride in the United States and
in American citizenship. But the government has more than pride to offer. Jt
does its work to give concrete and practical help to its citizens in jheir homes and
.in their business. ' .w - rJ" . "
The Wilmington Dispatch proposes to act as a clearing House between the
government and the readers of The Dispatch. It purposes to assemble, compile
and distribute the practical results of the great federal work of research arid in
vestigation. It purposes to make this information available to every one of its
readers. For this purpose The Dispatch opens its new Washington Bureau.
....The services of Mr. Frederic J. Haskin have been secured to conduct the
hew bureau. Mr. Haskin is well known as one of the leading authorities on the
workings of the federal government. His book, "The American Govern
ment," is a standard on the subject. Tse great moving picture, '"jLJncle ,Sam , at -iWork,'
based oh this book. Mr. Hskiri is a man of wide travel and long experi
ence in the accurate gathering and concise reporting of facts. His position in
Washington fits him peculiarly for the work the bureau is to do.
Have you seen "The War Cook Book?" If you haven't the chances are that
you soon will. It won't be long before every woman in Wilmington owns a copy;
if they continue to go out at the present rate.
, "The War Cook Book" is being distributed free by The Dispatchone copy
to any Dispatcs reader that writes for it. The purpose of this cook book, which
has just been published, is to put the war in terms of the kitchen and pantry. It'
shows how every home can help; how every woman can save enough food to as
sure some American boy in France of three square meals a day. v 1
One side of the food saving campaign, according to the authorities in WasH
ignton, is not sufficiently understood. Too many people think that food conser
vation means making a sacrifice. The opposite is more nearly true. When you
save food, as the term goes today, you help your country, you live as well as ever,
and you save money. v f
For instance: Right now, you are asked to save a little wheat Because
wheat is scarce, the army needs it ; and also because wheat is scarce, it is expen
sive. Now, corn is just as good and just as nourishing as wheat if you know how;
to use it. There is plenty of corn and ai soon as the new crop is in, it will be
cheap. Hence when you use some corn and less wheat you don't undergo any
hardship, you help the army, and you save money. That is what intelligent
food conservation means.
"The War Cook Book" goes into all the details of intelligent food saving, and
sets them forth clearly in a few words. It is exact and specific; it doesn't merely
say, "You can use corn instead of wheat," it give&gvou numerous recipes showing
exactly how the corn should be used. One of theifims in the obi?fc book is a list
of twenty, ways of cooking corn. How many can you think of ? ' '
Of course, wheat and corn are only one detail. The cook book is full of war
time suggestions, '"household war .orders" and new recipes. One interesting item
is achart of "Food Elements" that shows how to balance your meals, so that you
may be sure of eating all the different food necessities every day.
If you haven't already gotten a copy of "The War Cook Book," The Dis
patch is saving one for you.
