The Food Pledge Card.
The thought uppermost in (
minds now is food conservation a
the Hoover food pledge card. Ci
8ervation in the home may be I
decisive factor in this war.
As 90 per cent, of the ultim
food consumption of the country
in the hands of the women, it ie
ting that we make the first move
this food campaign.
Many people have the idea we ?
to be asked to starve ourselves, 1
the motto of the food administ
tion is, "eat plenty, wisely, a
We know that many women
not know food values. On the
stricted diets many v/ill find ni
essary, there will be a great ma
of under nourished people, especi
By signing the food pledge ca
the women will keep in touch w:
the food administrator, who n
from time time issue suggestions
to substitutes to use, etc. Plis w<

We may not always feel that it
necessary for us to follow him, b
we must remember that we are t
der military orders now and mi
follow our commander-in-chief t
President. He has asked to ht
in this way and it is our duty
follow as does the soldier the ord
of his commanding officer even tl
it does not correspond with his pi
sonal opinions. *
The first card of directions h
been issued. Following are extrae
"Save th e Wheat.''-One whei
less meal a day. Use corn, oatme?
rye or barley bread, and non-whe
breakfast foods. Order bread :
hours in advance so your baker w
not bake beyond his needs. C
the loaf on the table and only
required. Use stale bread for coo
ing, toast etc. Eat less cake ai
Our wheat harvest is far belo
normal, if each person week
saves one pound of wheat flou
that means 150,000,000 more bus
els for the allies to mix in the
bread. This will help them to sai
"Save the Meat."-Beef, mutto
or pork not more than once dail;
Use freely vegetables and fish. i
the meat meal, serve smaller po
tions, and stews instead of steak;
Make made dishes of all left over
Do this and there will be me?
enough for every one at a reasoni
We are to-day killing the dair
cows and female calves as the resa
of high prices. Therefore eat !es!
and eat no young meat. If we sav
an ounce of meat each day per pe
son, we will have additional suj
ply equal to 2,200,000 cattle.
Many of us do not know the valu
of vegetables in the diet. They cor
tain material for building the bones
for making firm muscles, and pul
ting red corpuscles in the blooci
and material that helps the diges
tion of food. We know that th
woody fiber of vegetables acts as
cleanser of the body. And so if w
give up meat and substitute mor
vegetables, we will find ourselve
healthier for it.
"Save the Milk"-The childrei
must have milk. Use every drop
Use buttermilk and sour milk fo
cooking and making cottage cheese
Use less cream."
"Save the Fats."-We are thi
worlds great fat wasters. F?t i
food. Butter is essential for tin
growth and health of children. Usi
butter on the table as usual, but no
for cooking. Other fats are as good
Reduce use of fried foods. Soap
contains fats. Do not waste it. Mak<
your own washing soap at home ou
of the saved fats.
Use one-third ounce less per daj
of animal fat and 375,000 tons wil
be saved yearly.
"Save the Sugar"-Sugar ii
scarce. We use to-day three time!
as much per person as our allies
So there may be enough for all ai
reasonable price. Use less cand^
and sweet drinks. Do not stint su
gar in putting up fruit and jams
They will save butter.
If every one in America saves
one ounce of sugar daily, it means
1,100,000 tons for the year.
"Save the Fuel"-Coal comes
from a distance and our railwayg
are over-burdened hauling war ma
terial. Help relieve them by burn
ing fewer fires. Use wood when
you can get it.
It would be possible for many
people to close rooms in their
houses this fall and winter to save
"Use the Perishable Foods."
Fruits and vegetables we have in
abundance. As a nation we eat too
little green stuffs. Double their use
and improve your health. Store
potatoes and other roots properly
and they will keep. Begin now to
can or dry all surplus garden pro
This is one of the most impor
tant suggestions made, as we should
use this summer, the foods which
cannot be stored.
"Use Local Supplies-Patronize
your local producer. Distance means
money. Buy perishable food from
the neighborhood nearest you and
thus save transportation."
