WASHINGTON, April G. Can we
enlist a million American women to
do men's work this summer on the
I ask this question because it is
posible that this summer the United
States may he in as great need of
farm laborers as of soldiers and muni
tion makers. But whether the actual
opportunity comes this year or not,
preparedness of the individual for war
or for peace demands that American
farm women be ready for every pos
It is well within the bounds of
probability that the available farm
labor of the United States will be ma
terially reduced by the. calling of
many men to other and more hazard
ous duties than sowing and reaping.
It is physically possible for the
farm women of America to aid our
present economic preparedness in the
event that a war summons an im-,
mense army to the colors. To handle
modern farm implements is not nec
essarily beyond a woman's strength.
With a good team and a riding cul
tivator equiped with a sun umbrella
plowing corn is a deal more pleasant
than washing.. The spring seat of
a binder compares favorably with the
comfort of a piano stool. Few house
hold duties are more fun than riding
a hay-rake. Even plowing with a
sulky plow is not too heavy a strain
for some American women.
Every farm girl and woman should
proceed at once to master the elements
of practical scientific farming. Those
who can should attend short courses
in agricultural schools and every one
should ask questions, observe ajid read
The Department of Agriculture has
issued a concise, simple, practical
primer of scientific agriculture for
the Middle West Farmers" Bulletin
No 704 which can be obtained
through Congressmen or directly
from the Department of Agriculture.
Similar bulletins for other regions
are now under preparation.
Evey farm girl and woman, more
over should, be all means, take a hand
in actual farm operations so as to
handle tractors, horses and farm im
plements readily and skillfuly. Those
who do so will not have tw prepare
after the fighting has begun, to do
their '"bit" for their country in time
of danger. They will know how to
plant, cultivate and harvest the crops
essential to our' nation's welfare when
saving them depends upon the serv
ice of the women In the field.

WASHINGTON. April to. The do
mestic life of a modern army should
he an example to every American
housewife. In the army the ration
is well balanced, the cheapest, nu
tritious and palatable -foods ara pur
chased, and the most economical
means of preparing them are used.
It is a patriotic fluty at all iimes,
whether there is var or peace, for
every American woman, rich or poor,
to keep her home "prepared." Home
preparedness means substitution', of
cheap, appetizing dishes for costly
foods, practical elimination of waste,
and scientifically balanced rations.
There are two great groups 'pt
foods that enter a balanced huma;n
ration the protein group, like meat?,
eggs, and beans, and the starch group.
such as potatoes, rijee, cereals, bread, .Jj
etc. The protein foods as a rule are
more expensive than the starchy
foods. Some protein foods, however,
are cheap. The prime factor in econ
omy in foods is the choice of protein
foods that are at the same time cheap
A cheap food, rich in protein and
fats .is the ordinary field soy bean,
often sold " under the name "Togo
Bean." Ten cents worth at the price
of 15 cents a quart will supply over
5 ounces of protein, while average
beef at 20 cents a pound will supply
little over 1 ounce of protein for the
Excellent soups can be made from
the water in which the soy beans are
cooked, as well as from the water in
which most vegetables are boiled.
Save also vegetable tops, skim milk,
bones and meat scraps for soups.
Make the butcher give you all the fat
that he weighs with your cut of meat
it's valuable grease.
Don't depend on one kind of food.
When potatoes, are dear remember
that 1 pound of dry corn meal pro
vides about 5 times as much fuel or
energy and ii times as much tissue
building protein as 1 pound of raw
potatoes and cost from one-third to
one-sixth as much.
Raisins are rich in sugar, mineral
salts, and the natural grape acids
and their cost is low.
Whole wheat, cooked until it bursts
open, or cracked in a little $2.50 hand
mill is one of the most delicious and

Savn fuel nnd lnhnr hv mnkimr hot
breads only when using your fire for
the cooking of other foods. Avoid
the danger of overcooking, and con
serve the flavor of the your dinner by
using a fire less cooker. You can make
good one yourself very cheaply.
By such expedients as these every
woman can "prepare" her home not
only against war but also against
sickness and hard times.
