I Department of Agriculture at Wash |
I lugton. I.ooklng Into the average j
Amerlcau farm method of living, the j
j department finds that the farmers ar# j
tab generously su|iplied with meat as j
( auy other class of people, observes
Out Karger In the Cincinnati Times- j
I Star. Strangely enough, they don't use I
eggs as abundantly as the folks else- !
where, hut they more-mil It, even I
j where there are fewer than the aver- j
j age number of children,
Kicept In Southern states, where j
j "gulck" breads are often preferred, ]
i wheat bread Is the staple. A relative- j
' ly large proportion of starchy vegeta j
hies Is consumed and a relatively |
small quantity of the green aud sue- J
1 culent kinds, In spite of the fact that !
farm families have the best opportun- j
i Itles for growing vegetables at home.
The studies of the home economics j
division of the Department of Agrlcul- 1
ture "bear out the geiierul lmpres- .

average the farmers' families have an j
! abundant diet, with enough different .

Whether rhe food Is well cooked and
