DON'T LET CHILD MAK
BY FRANCES BROWN,
Department of Household Econom
ics, Kan. State Agricultural Col.
A wise mother does not allow her
child to make a meal of any- one ar
ticle to the exclusion of all others,
but insists that along with his eggs
he shall eat bread and butter, or
along with his bread and butter he
shall eat meat 6r cheese, or that he
drink a sufficient quantity of milk.
In other words, she balances his
ration by seeing that each of the five
food principles makes a fair amount
of each meal.
Just wfcat these proportions shall
be, how much of the tissue building
food, or how much of the heat-producing
foods the fats and oils or
how much of the work-supplying
food he shall have, will depend large
ly upon the individual.
Correct Combinations
Adults should likewise pay close ;
attention to the proportion of the va
rious nutrients in their diet Too
often there is too great a consump--tion
of the nitrogenous foods in
comparison with the energy yield
ing substances, and too little atten
tion is paid to the combined amount
of these two principles needed as
compared with the bulk of the meal
that is necessary to insure satisfac
tion. Because of this many persons are
habitually over-fed. To avoid this
the careful housewife will see to it
that each meal contains at least one
dish that is largely made up of
fibrous or bulky material. There is
danger in filling her family with only
highly concentrated food.
Some General Rules t
How much food must be taken will
depend largely upon the age, sex and
occupation of each individual, but it
is safe to lay down the following gen
eral rules:
In warm weather less heat-producing
foods should be eaten. j
E MEAL OF ONE FOOD
In old age and in children lees food
is necessary than for adults in the
prime of life. For these two ex
tremes a greater amount of nitrog
enous food in proportion to the
starchy food is necessary in the
one case for tissue-building, in the
other for tissue repair.
For adults in the prime of life,,
when work is light, less food of any
kind is needed; when work is in
creased, the increase in food should
be in the starchy material foods, or
the oils and fats, rather than in the
nitrogenous foods.
It may be safely said nearly every
body eats too much and a greater de
gree of health would be enjoyed if
less food were taken.

Rittman process of transforming
petroleum waste into gasoline, ben
zine and tuluene may act as a check
on any movement to increase the
prices of these products. Gasoline
made by this process costs 6 cents
a gallon.
