go a metmorphosis in wedlock. We
all come to agree with the cynics
that marriage is the only sure cure
"Why not be sensible, then, and
take this cure with our eyes, open,
knowing that when the so-called
'romance' subsides, its place may be
taken by another group of emotions
equally noble, and if not as exciting,
perhaps more satisfying in the end,
as well as more conducive to the wel
fare of ourselves and society?"
Just then the handsome husband
of Nazimova came up and rested his
hand caressingly about the shoulders
of the little wpman who might be
described as exactly as tall as his
heart She looked up quickly at his
touch and a smile that Nazimova has
never vouchsafed to the gaze of one
ot her theater audiences radiated her
face. It gave me an inspiration.
"What,.madame, is your idea of
an ideal husband?"
Nazimova's little hand stole up to
the virile one clasping her shoulder
and she answered without an in
stant's hesitation, "A man who is tol

"A great lover is usually the most
intolerant of men."
Is she right, wives?
Do you place tolerance first of the
wedded masculine virtues?
POTATO BREAD IS CHEAPER THAN ALL-FLOUR
BREAD, SAYS UNCLE SAM
(The second of six articles in which
Uncle Sam, through The Day Book
cooking expert, tells how housewives
can save $20,000,000 a year by sav
ing $1 a year ineach American home.
The recipes given have been tested in
the U. S. baking laboratory.)
BY BIDDY BYE
So great is American wastefulness
that housewives who really try to
economize can save money' even at
the present high food prices.
Any cook with brains can cut $1
a year from her bread bill alone and
contribute her share to a possible
great national saving of $20,000,000.
Continuing the lesson in bread
making which was begun in this pa
per yesterday, Uncle Sam has this to
say about potato bread:
In localities where there is a sur
plus of potatoes or where they are
very cheap, potato bread costs less to
make than all-flour bread.
This would prove an excellent way
in which to utilize cull potatoes.
Even, however, where the relative
market prices of potatoes and flour
are such that there is no economy in
substituting potato for flour, the in
dividual quality of potato bread make
.it desirable as a variant in the fam
Potato Bread Sponge Method
For four one-pound loaves are re
quired: Three pounds of boiled and peeled
potatoes, 214 pounds of good bread
flour, 3 level tablespoons of sugar,
iy2 level tablespoons of salt, 1 cake
of compressed yeast, 4 tablespoons of
' Boil, peel and mash the potatoes.
In the evening take 1 pounds or
2y2 solidlypacked half-pint cupfuls
of the cool, mashed potato, ad,d to it
the salt and 1 scant half-pint of flour
and the yeast rubbed smooth with
,the water, reserving one spoonful to
rinse the cup. .
In the morning add the remainder
of the potato, the sugar and the rest
of the flour. Knead thoroughly until
a smooth and very stiff dough is
formed. After working the dough,
set it to raise and thereafter follow
the usual routine of bread making.

the first article of this series.
(Uncle Sam's recipe for making
potato rolls will be printed in The
Day Book tomorrow.)
