AMY GIVES UP
Non-Breakable and Transport
able Product Baked in Cool
Ovens on the Field.
The Unltid States army has stopped
maklnc its bread from sour dough.
This method, used in the French army, j
calls for the use of a mt oi aougn as
yeast from a previous day's baking, and
in this way French army bread has Its
foundation In the first dough made 100
No Uncie Sam furnishes his soldiers
with bread that is impervious to the
weather, sweeter than the old form,
easy to transport, in short, non-breakable
It Is baked thin and hard. Much of
its value comes from proper punching,
according to Commissary General H.
G. Sharpe. U. S. A. Uncle Sam's cooks
and bakers trained In three army cook
schools devised the new system of bak
ing field .bread.
Here is tne rormuia ior ine non
breakable and transportable food that
the soldier uses while on duty away
from regular bakeries:
One hundred pounds of sifted flour,
fifty-two pounds of water, one and a
half pounds of dried yeast, three pounds
of sugar, ond and a quarter pounds of
Baked In Cool Over.
The mixture must be baked In an
eighteen count oven, which means that
the baker must be able to hold his
hands, without too.much naln. Inside the
oven while he counts eighteen, such an
oyen Is far cooler than the ordinary
even, and for that reason Uncle Sam's
bread bakes dry and hard. little hole
In the crust also help to drive out
moisture and keep the loaf flat.
Here are the official directions for
making the field bread:
"Make a straight dough by first mix
ing the yeast (which has been softened
in water), sugar, and salt In the water
of about 85 degrees Fahrenheit tempera
ture; then putting In the flour, saving
about two pounds for dusting. This will
make a stiff dough and should be
kneaded well. Set to rise in a tempera
ture of about S8 degrees Fahrenheit.
The dough should be ready to punch
down In about six hours. Punch down
once and let rise again for about one
half hour and then put out on the
bench. Knead well for about twenty or
Loaves Inch Thick.
"Scale at two pounds and three and
one-half ounces (or whatever weight
may be decided upon), round up, let
prove (rise) twenty minutes on the
bench. Mold Into round flat loaves of
about one Inch thickness. Set to prove
In pans so that the loaves will not touch
when at full proof. Let prove for
about one hour and fifteen minutes,
temperature about 90 degrees Fahren
heit. When ready to go into the oven
the loaves may be slashed crosswise
jxilh a sharp knife or punctured with
pins, thus permitting the escape of a
portion of the gas.
"Bake In suitable nans In an eighteen-
count oven for one hour."
The French army is experimenting at
present with a form of bread which In
cludes sugar and a purified vegetable
oil to eliminate the sour taste from the
old dough system.
- Bitten By Dogs
Three more persons were bitten by
dog?, but It Is not thought the animals
that attacked them were rabid.
Ernest Woltz, seven years old. of CM
Thirteenth street northeast, was bitten
by a stray dog while playing near his
home. William Nost. aged sixteen, cf
4S0 N street southwest, was bitten on
the leg by a fox terrier, and Elizabeth
Geiger. four years old. of 623 B stre-t
northeast, was bitten on the right wrlt
by a dog while playing In the rear yard
of her home.
