If you have never been to California
and would really like to go just stroll
over to the California Hallway Ex
position and leisurely explore this
remarkable train. Great throngs of
people throughout Kansas, Oklahoma
and Missouri have visited these cars,
and are unanimous in their praise.
Much has been told of the sunshine,
fruit and flowers of the Golden State,
but little do we realize the vastness
and diversity of her great wealth, and
it is especially singiflcant that the
crops typified are all staples, the food
of the nation, that is clamoring for
Not only for the material things
she offers is California renowned, but
also for scenic grandeur. "See Ameri
ca First," is a good slogan and what
traveler would boast that he had seen
America who had not stood on
Glacier Point and gazed overwhelmed
into the indescribable wonders of
Yosemite Valley or who had missed
the inspiration of the Big Trees. These
gems of nature, the people of the San
Joaquin Valley, California, have
cleverly revealed to you in this unique

Knitting, She Says.
Miss Bobb Bell of Columbia, repre
senting the United States .Department
of Agriculture, has been In Kansas
I City trying to arrange with the city
officials there to engage a "home dem
onstrator." In an interview there
Miss Bell says:
"This matter of the home demon
strator is a patriotic affair. All it needs
is backing. We supply the demon
strator; the municipality or an or
ganization finances her. Of course,
we prefer municipal backing, having
the city and federal governments
In St. Louts a home demonstrator
has already started to work, and in
St. Joseph firtids have been raised to
bring one, who will arrive this week.
The demonstrator Miss Bell has cho
sen for Kansas City is Miss Ida Shill
ing, authorized by the Department of
Agriculture as an "Urban Emergency
Home Demonstration Agent" and an
expert in food problems. She was
trained at the University of Missouri
'under Miss Bell.
The purpose of the home demonstra
tor is to help solve problems that
arise in the home, problems of food,
of clothing and of conservation and
economy in general. One day a week
she will hold office hours to answer
questions and settle housewives' dif
ficulties. One day a week she will in
vestigate local conservation condi
tions, reporting to the department, as
part of national conservation survey.
The remainder of the week she will
be available for demonstrations before
Women Ignorant on Home Questions.
"It's more important than knitting,"
Miss Bell said. "Not one woman
in a hundred knows what a salory Is.
Not one in a thousand can prepare a
balanced meal, with just enough food
in it to support a man or woman.
"Most persons think that conserva
tion is not leaving things on your
plate. That is nonsense. Conserva
tion is putting proper things in the
proper conservative amounts on the
plate before jou begin to eat.
"Ignorance about the diet is appall
ing. We cat too much meat for one
thing too much for our health and
too mucn tor our country s good at
this time. Meat substitutes may be
found, differing according to location
and economic environment. Fish, I
should say, offhand, is a meat substi
tute which probably needs pushing
and would be successful economically
in Kansas City. New foodstuffs con
taining much nutriment, such as cot
tonseed and peanut meal, should be
in Boone CountyV
