Food Commission Notes
Mrs. Russell's Lectures
How Honolulu women may pre
pare the war breads of England"
and thus become real food conser
vators, is to be the general subject
under which Mrs. James Russell
will give the iirst three demonstra
tions in the series of economy cook
ing lessons beginning next Monday
at the Y. M. C. A.
Mrs. Russell has the bread recipes
which have been issued by the"
National Economy League of Great
Britain and approved by the Na
tional School of Cookery of that
country. She not only will bake
these before the eyes of the women
who attend the demonstrations,
but will give them the recipes. She
even expresses the hope that local
bakeries may be induced to give
them a trial and, if possible, in
augurate at least one 'war bread
day" each week in the city.
Mrs. Russell's Qualifications
The women's committee of the
Food Commission considers itself
fortunate in obtaining the service
of Mrs. Russcl for these housewives'
classes, because she understands the
entire problem of household eco
nomy and cookery so intimately
Born in England, a graduate of
the National Training School of
Cookery, and with a scholarship
from that institution, the largest of
its kind in the British Empire,
Mrs. Russell is exceptionally well
equipped to teach kitchen thrift to
patriotic American women. At the
same time sho is not a malihini in
Hawaii; she has lived in the Islands
alxiut nineteen years and knows
the kind of problems housewives
must Contend with here.
Since the war began she has been
receiving first-hand information
concerning war-time food situation
"back home." These from her
mother, who resides in London,
have included practically all the
Government pamphlets and cook
ing recipes that have been issued.
She also has received much infor
mation from Professor Senn, princi
pal of the Training School of Cook
ery, in Buckingham Palace Road,
who gave her considerable assistance
in the household efficiency course,
which Mrs. Russell conducted at
the Y. W. C. A. last fall
State Flowers: What
Will Ours Be?
The National Geographic Maga
zine has a lengthy article illustrated
in colors, on our State flowers,
enumerating and describing them
in detail, with much interesting in
For the ordinary man of the
street, who hasn't been educated in
the matter of State Flowers, this
enumeration brings some surpiises;
and one cannot help wondering why
some of them are chosen, as they
do not seem particularly artistic or
particularly appropriate; e. g. the
Giant Cactus, the Pine Cone, the
Oregon Grape, the Mistletoe, etc.
In many cases the flower is chosen
evidently because of local fitness,
because they are peculiarly indigen
ous to that particular locality. In
other cases the choice is made be
cause of inherent beauty, as the
Prairie Rose, the Rhododendron,
the California Poppy, etc
The American pegple seem to
have taken this matter of a state
flower quite seriously ; in most cases
the state legislature has determined
what the flower shall be, though in
many cases the school children have
made the choice, and have shown
rather more intelligence than the
No flower is assigned to any one
of the Territories; presumably no
selection has been made. Against
the day when such a selection shall
be made for Hawaii, we would res
pectfully suggest the Hibiscus in

White Bread Unwholesome
"You know, as a' matter of fact
the people of England have not
been eating bread of the standard
of your American white bread for
the last nine or ten years. About
a decade ago much trouble develop
