Hut the picm-'.n of Shakespeare's
time I'.n.i :;.!!!.. i.unn, herself, are no
longer l :nili: r . i :hU in England.
Their mem:.. .... happily revived
in England bu t winter, however, when
the cries o ' Po ta toes! Po ta
toes! Ni ': ii ot Po-l.i toes!
filled the r.irccl nu.l people who fol
lowed the crle.-i ni.ii-overed girls
trundling small ovens from which
they took deliciously ioo".:e,l, pipin.i
hot potatoes to sell to passers by.
The plan- tor selling potatoes in
this novel way originated with the
llalstead Food Ministry Control Com
mittee. Knowing there would be a
great suffering among the poor be
cause of the lack of bread and of fuel
in England, these potato ovens were
instituted by the women of Halstead.
"roni these the poor could buy for a
few pence enough delicious, hot po
tatoes to make them forget their
ack of bread.
Their plan worked so successfully
that soon' these potato ovens became
familiar sight in the poorer quarters
of cities all over England. The sales
from one of them ran from, a hund
red to five hundred4 potatoes a day
depending ojily on the number that
the oven could hold.
Possibly these potato ovens may be
come laminar sights on the streets
of America. Put we do not have to
wait for that to make potatoes a sub
stitute for bread.
Remember, one averaged sized po
tato equals in nurishment one aver
age sized slice of bread. If there is
an extra amount of potatoes the ab
sense of bread will not be felt.
Wheat saving for the next three
months s a greater need than it has
been for the last three ,months, yet
at the same time it is easier. With
the vast supply of vegetables and
fruits which will shortly be avail
able, no one should suffer because
of the lack of wheat in the diet. The
Food Administration again urges
everyone to cut wheat entirely from
his or her diet until the next harvest,
Baking and Milling
Divisions Discuss Plans

Might Have Been True
"Typographical errors," said Will
lam Dean Howells, "are always am
using, when I was a boy In my
father's prnting oti(-e in Martin'
Ferry I once made a good typo
graphical error. My father had writ
ten, 'Tlie showers last week, though
copious, were not sufficient for the
millmen.' I set it up 'milkmen'."
A discussion of reports, rules and
methods of operation occupied the
morning session of the chiefs of the
baking divisions of the Food Admin
istration which met Jointly with the
state, , halrmen of Baker's Service
Committees at tho Food Administra
tion building. Discussion followed ad
dresses" by Theodore Whttmarsh,
George A. Zabrisko and R. W. Doydon
of the Food Administration. In tho
afternoon the two bodies held sepcr
ate sessions after which the confer
Assurances of cordial support fol
lowed tho address of Mr. Whitmarsh
who told the bakers that there is but
one third of tho norml supply of wheat
to lust until August 1st nd that the
bakers Would have to use strngent
measures to make this supply last.
He said he believed tho bakers of
tho country are patriotic enough to
sacrifice their entire business if it
would help the country win tho war.
He suggested even more general bak
ing of a 12 ounce loaf which he said
has been demonstrated by one Wash
ington baker, alone, to have saved
hundreds of pounds of flour.
Mr. Zabrisko. who is at the head of
the Food Administration's milling
division, discussed milling methods in
America, as compared to those in
France, and England, where 85 to 90
per cent of the wheat berry is made
into flour. He added that in those
countries the people are using aV
high as 50 per cent substitutes.
Mr. Royden discussed the work of
the enforcement division of the Food
Administration, pointnig out that
every effort is made" to acquaint lic
ensees fully with the food regulations
in order to acqune the application of
penalties only in cases where there
is a wilful violation.
A Dangerous Illness
An old negro, riding on the train,
fell asleep with his mouth wide open.
A mischievous drummer came along
and, having a convenient capsule of
(,1'ii.ine in his pocket, uncorked it
and sifted the bitter dose well into
the old negro's, mouth at tho root of
his tongue.' Soon the darky awoke,
and became much disturbed. He
called for the conductor and asked:
'Ross, is dere a doctor on dis here
"1 don't know," said the conduct
or. "Are you sick?"
"Yas, suh, I sho' is sick." ,
"What is the matter with you?"
"I dunno,.suh, but it tastes like I
busted my gall."
