“The Cost of a Meal.”
iss Frances R. Freeman, Professor of
Home Economics, U. of \1.
For most people, cost is a large factor
in the feeding problem; from one-fourth
to one-half of the family income has to
be devoted to buying food and the small
er the income the larger the percentage
which must be so spent. Fortunately
there is no vital relation between nutri
tive value and cost; in fact, some of the
most nutritious foods are the cheapest.
Cbst alone is a poor gui e for the house
wife in determining what she will feed
her family.
The cost of food has been discussed
almost entirely on the basis of fuel value,
that is what foods will yield the most
energy for the least amount of money. :
but calories alone are not a sufficient
standard by which to judge a food.
Building material—protein, iron, calcium. j
phosphorus, etc., must be furnished. The j
body must aiso be supplied with regula
tory products and vitamines, those new
compounds in foods, now known to be so
essential to growth and health.
Protein foods are, as a rule, the most
expensive in the dietary. Meats are a
good illustration. From a nutritive point
of view, milk, cheese or eggs are better
than meals, interchangeable with them
and can usually be substituted with real
The proteins differ somewhat in their
nutritive value and milk and eggs have a
larger amount of the proteins which pro
ote growth than the cereals and legumes,
so that the latter should not be depended
upon in feeding children nor even in
feeding adults.
il is also worm wniie to consiuer in a
similar way some of the foods which are
the best sources of the different ash con
stituents, especially calcium, phosphorus
and iron. Milk is a fairly economical
source of phosphorus, exceptionally
cheap for calcium and only expensive as
a source of iron. Taking all these points
into consideration milk must be regarded
as inexpensive.
Green vegetables and fruits, which in
general are expensive sources of fuel and
protein, are good sources of ballast, the
indigestible residue so necessary for reg
ulating the excretory functions of the in
testines. In a well balanced diet fruits
and vegetables should have an import
ant place and at least as much money
should be spent for them as for meats,
eggs and fish.
Vitamiues, occurring in minute quan
tities in special foods are best obtained
from milk, eggs, green vegetables and
Considering all the body needs, milk is
undoubtedly the cheapest food the house
wife can purchase. The dietary should
contain one quart of milk per day for each
child and at least one pint per day for
each adult. By using also cereals, well
baked bread, potato, eggs, one vegetable
and a fruit a well blanced day’s dietary
will be secured, best adapted to body
needs for the least expenditure of money.
Meats, preserves, cakes, pies, hot breads
and rich desserts are expensive and
I should be used sparingly.

again on the night of April 8th by
thieves, less than three weeks from the

they took a few pennies and 2 or 3 Cana

breaking the glass, for the windows were

only way they could have got in.

Cordial Treatment by Posts of
the Southwest.
The hospitality of the Southwest ts
reflected in its American Legion posts,
according to Van W. Bishop and C. G.
Allison, California Legionnaires who
are well on their way on a little walk
from Los Angeles, Cal., to Mexico
City, Mexico, a distance of more than
1.500 miles. Bishop belongs to Los
Angeles Post No. 8, and Allison to Ir
win Post No. 93 of San Francisco.
Weary with tramping the dusty
kilometers and burdened with packs
and other impedimenta, the marchers
found rest at a number of Legion
posts along the way, according to a
letter received from them by the adju
tant of the Los Angeles post.
“The posts of the American Legion
in the towns where we have stopped
huve treated us royally. Legion mem
bers at Yuma, Ariz., started the good
things for us. Then Tucson post fixed
us up for two days in a room fitted
with bunks for the accommodation of
a few fellows who come in and wont
a place to stay.
“Our next stop was at Bisbee for
three days. They have a regular home
with several rooms and a sleeping
porch. A number of the fellows make
their home at the club. We arrived
in time to attend the funeral of one of
the boys brought back from ‘over
there.’ Now, we are at Douglas,
where Legion post officers obtained
quarters for us. Our plan is to enter
Mexico at El Paso or Laredo, Tex."

A. E. F. Play Library.
An A. E. F. play library has been
opened for the use of posts of the
American Legion, which produce plays
for home talent production. The mu
sical comedy, “Sittin’ Pretty” is one
of the feature plays now offered to
posts. It tells the story of a dough
boy who poses ns a girl welfare work

O. L. soldiers from court martial,
chaperones two charming daughters
of a French nobleman, and saves the
boys from drowining in the River Cog

It is no generally known that a cattle
train runs out of Maine just as regularly
as cattle trains run into St. Louis or
Chicago; nor is it common knowledge
that cattle shipping is an important in
dustry of Central Maine, bringing to the
farms of the region an average weekly
return of $75,000, and annual income of
$3,800,000. This livestock shipping in
dustry has broken the rule that nothing
can stand still, that it must either go
back or progress, for the average size of
the cattle train going out of Portland
every night 25 years ago is the average
size today. Only in prices has there been
a change, for the shipments bring larger
sums of money than formerly.
