UNCLE SAM SAYS HOUSEWIVES MAKE FOUR
ERRORS IN FOOD SAVINGS-CORRECT THEM
BY BIDDY BYE
About 20,000,000 women serve the
nation's meals daily, and if each cook
would save $1 a year on her meat
and grocery bills, Uncle Sam's na
tional savings account would be
No - one can save anything by
chance. There must be some plan.
Fortunately, Uncle Sam has many
helpful words for women who are
anxious to profit by his advice.
There are four common errors in
food economy, according to his
warning in Farmers' bulletin No. 142.

often to the detriment of health; part

food occasions a waste of energy. In
many American families meat is

protein required in the diet if such
foods as eggs, milk, cheese, beans
and other legumes are used to re-'
place the accustomed extra but un
necessary portjpns of meat.

tested recipes for making a dish of
meat "go a long way" in a large fam

For this dish a leg of young pork
should be selected. With a sharp
knife make a deep cut in the( knuckle
and fill the opening with sage, pep

the roast is half done scar the skin,
but do not cut deeper than the outer
