Wife Savers And Timely Hints
By RUTH CURRENT
Of State College
It has been said that turkey,
duck or chicken can have a glossy
coat if there's a sprinkling of
sugar after the usual rubbing with
butter, salt and pepper before
roasting. Someone should have
thought of that when there was
plenty of sugar available but, after
all, a little sprinkling won't drain
the precious supply, now will it?
You may like it.
Cakes made with honey some
times seem . less light and fluffy
than those made with sugar. Age
them, and they become moist and
The coffee you buy now is prob
ably in a paper bag. Think noth
ing of it. Better be glad you were
able to get any at all. It's pre
dicted that by Christmas time all
available coffee will be packed in
bags. Just transfer it to an old
coffee tin or a glass jar with a
metal screw top.
The very unfortunate homemak
er who "stocks up" will be mighty
sorry in a month from now that
the coffee tastes as if it's been
poured through someone's sock!
And that's exactly what will hap
pen to hoarders.
Yes, coffee goes stale on the
shelf and with that thought in
mind, these hints should be observ
ed religiously: (1) Buy coffee as
your rationing book permits.
Don't fuss. (2) Buy the right
kind for your coffee maker. The
wrong type means needless waste.
(3) Measure coffee accurately.
(4) Prepare no more than you
think youll need, (5) Serve it as
soon as it's made, if possible. (6)
Save all leftover coffee. Use in
cooking. It is especially delicious
in cakes, cookies and pudding. It's
called mocha then.
Keep these points in mind for
the months ahead and remember
that coffee rationing means that
everyone will get a share of what
there is. Remember, too, that
cargo ships, formerly bringing cof
fee, are now taking war materials
to our fighting boys,
our coffee nerves!
Beans are high in food value and
low in cost. There are red kidney
beans, pea beans, white narrow
beans, yellow-eye beans, white kid
ney beans, black turtle soup beans,
and all the rest.
Eat beans for energy, eat them
for economy, eat them for patriot
ism; but eat them often. North
Carolina grows them, almost every
kind for almost every purpose.
Appeal! Beans appeal in cost,
in convenience of storage, in their
variety, and in their keeping qual
ity. They are good in soups, in
salads, and in sandwiches.
Nutrients are plentiful in beans.
They contain protein for body
building, carbohydrate for energy,
and many of the vitamins and
minerals for general good health
Serve beans hot; serve beans
cold; serve them as a main dish
for dinner, or as a pick-up supper.
Serve them simply, or attractively
garnished and seasoned.
Beans are as American as is
apple pie and today it is doubly
important to use them because they
are low in cost and high in food
value. (When combined or served
with milk and eggs they may take
the place of more costly meats).
Eggs are a protective food.
Serve them to your family because
of their protein, fat, mineral, and
vitamin content; they are bomb
shells of protective food against
vitamin-short meals. They should
be included in diets at all times,
but especially when extra strains
necessitate more than ordinary
health and vigor.

small flock on every North Caro

Common Sense Is

Since Pearl Harbor colds and

"CAN'T HAVE BUTTER, TOO"
Pasadena, Cal.- Before the end
of the war, Americans will have
their living standard cut 50 per
cent and will be buying canned
goods with coupons the way they
are doing it now in Germany and
Russia, according to Prof. Fred
C. McLaughlin of the office of price
administrator. "There is nothing
more fallacious," he declared,
"than the idea that we can have
the guns and the butter, too."
non-rationed states have formed a
new bloc the anti-rationing group
which is no respector of politics.
Democrats and Republicans alike
have joined hands in trying to pre
vent rationing of motor fuel in
states where there is no gasoline
shortage. Leon Henderson, how
ever, has been immune to all pro
tests, and said gas restrictions
all over the country are here to
stay. William Jeffers, Rubber Ad
ministrator, said it was imperative
to curtail driving to save tires.
So it looks as though the rest of
the country will have to suffer the
same gasoline restrictions as the
