Expert Finds Descendants of First
American Families Little Affected
by the Melting Pot.
Through an e::tensive study of mem
bers of some of the oldest American
families, America as the "melting pot
of the nations" proves to be but a con
venient expression for writers and ora
tors-merely a plcture drawn by those
who do not itouble themselves about
the precision of their figures of speech,
a myth without foundation ot fact.
For four years Dr. Ales 1Irdlicka, I
curator of the division of ihiySlC aln
thropology of the United States Nn
tional mualseum, has 1111ad under wiy an

human race Is being formed here in
Amertea with intermarriage, environ
ment and under the pressure of out

finds definitely that, as yet, such is not
the case. Jis investigation shows that
the descendants of the Pilgrim fathers,
the Virginia cavaliers, the Pennsylva

possibly not as much alike as their an

TIME TO EXERCISE PATIENCE

Now is the time for all good Amer

times are out of Joint. Nothing is done
the way it should be done, a plague of
incompetence is upon us, there has
been ia general slowing down in till
branches of business and industrial life
and a general lowering of the average
of social eillelency. But it is the war,
and we must have patience. Don't flare
up and tell us that it takes ten min
utes to get your "party" on the tele.
phone, and then, like as not, it Isn't
your party at all. You ought to be
thankful for any party.
And the elevatorsI And the clerksI
They do not wait on y.ou.. You wait on
the clerks, oh, no long. And it Is going
to be worse-for a whle. But It is
the war, anl It is to be expected and
we will have to put up with it. Busi.

recruits who have not been to training

fast as possible, nad by and by the re
cruits will be velerans, the times will
get back in Joint, things will be done
the way they should be done, efficiency

try will be speeded up and all will be
well. In the meantime, while the cap.

STEP IN FOOD CONSERVATION
Minnesota Physician Has Discovered
Method of Condensing Buttermilk
and Retaining Nutritive Value.
In a recent interview with Dr. Wil
1am Grelek of St. Paul, Minn., the
fact was broulght out that immense
quantities of buttermilk have been
wasted. Doctor Greick Is a member
of the American ChemIcal soclety and
for years has devoted much study to
the iilik problen. As a result of his
efforts a metoid has been discovered
for condensinrig ltternilk into a semi
solid srnooth substance of the consist
eney of leo cream.
All the nutritive value or the but
termilk is conserved in this product,
and it Is especially suitable for use In
bread makIng. Fron eight to ten
pounds of this material when added to
a barrel of flour produce a loaf ot
greater food value. The milk protein
helps to make up the deficiency In our
present-day flour substitutes. The
vitamines of the butterfat help to de
fine the structure of the bread, besides
producing an agreeable milk flavor;
and the sugar of milk, aside from be
ing of great food value, when com
bined with the dextrin in flour makes
a fine brown crust at a comparatively
low baking temperature. It saves
fuel and prevents unnecessary loss of
