Food Essentials for the
School Child I like to repeat certain topics from time to time because there are always new readers to be con sidered and because repetition gives emphasis. And frequently there are new scientific find ings to be presented. This week, chiefly because a new school year is beginning, 1 want to discuss a o*a in +V10 ~ sentials. Perhaps I should men tion the fact that these comments on food are not just mine alone. They do not represent merely a personal opinion. Instead they are the result of years of painstaking scientific research by nutrition specialists who have made the laboratory investigation of foods their life’s work. And, what is important to us, their findings are practically unani mous. They all stress the impor tance of milk, for example, both for children and adults. The fa miliar “quart a day” is not mere sales talk. It is in itself a scien tific conclusion, resulting from countless calculations and recheck ings of the growing child’s need for the elements of milk. Similar ly, we know the truth about eggs, and bread and butter. There should be a pleasing variety of course. Even milk is -just as valu able given in many different ways. Meals should be cheerful, pleasant occasions, attractively offered. All parents and school lunch managers who adhere to these essentials can feel assured that they are doing their best to promote child health and develoDment. School Health Examinations, a most important topic, will be dealt with by Dr. Ireland next week. The children ask in vacation time what game they shall play next, and a very fine one would be to see which can get the most refuse out of the back yard. Some People object to the noise made by the children, but it would perhaps be more senisble to worry about what they are doing when they keep still. . - ^ THE HOME THE a _ riwjiL i ruvcjb TOWN BUILT (An original Gulf Cost Lumber man poem). This is the home the town built. This is the home so clean and nea; That adds so much to the looks oi the street; That makes the strangers wish thai they Could take it along when they g( away. And the neighbors are glad thai everyone had A hand in the home the town built This is the youth with pep and vain Clean, honest labor looks good tc him; He is the one who owns the place As you can see by his satisfied face: nri i»i Anv £/iupc;i.i.y 5tailU5 111 1115 UW1. name— To "own a home” is plenty of fame— And he takes part in the village biz. To hold up the value of what is his, For this is the home the town built, This is the maid so filled with love, Who makes the home like the Heav en above; Her "work” is "play” the whole day long She fills the house with happy song. For the house is new and clean you see, And just as convenient as it can be— For this is the home the town built. But what is this army that stands outside And watches the house with looks of pride? Why, they are the ones who helped to build This HOME! No wonder with joy they’re filled! They, too, deserve their "place in the sun,” ■ For it is a wonderwul work they have done— Constructing the home the town built. First, the ARCHITECT drew the plan; Then the lot was got from a REAL ESTATE man; The LAWYER found that the title was right; And the BANKER showed the money in sight. The LABORER dug the cellar so deep; And the MASON made the founda tion to keep The base for the BRICKMASON’S solid wall And the chimney above, so straight and tall. i ne ^Y\rvrniN 1 niv. Dougnt irom the LUMBER YARD All manner of wood, both soft and hard, To make the partitions, the shelves and the doors, The shady porch and the wide, smooth floors. The ROOFER shingled (perhaps he (tinned) And the GLAZIER guarded ’gainst too much wind. The PLUMBER saw that the water was right; The GAS and ELECTRIC men handled the light; The LATHER and PLASTERER covered the wall And the PAINTER finished the last of all; And then—deny it if you can. They call in the INSURANCE MAN. But these are just the ones who j build; j The house is empty and must be ! filled; So the rest of the town then takes a part To prove that each has a will and a heart To make that house a HOME in deed— And here is the rest of this jingly screed. The FURNITURE man gives a table and bed, A chair and a carpet on which to tread. The DRYGOODS man provides the sheets And towels and napkins for the eats. The CROCKERY man sets up a cup And a plate and dish from which to sup. The CUTLERY man then gives the (Knife, fork and spoon) by fash ion’s rules. The HARDWARE dealer would think it strange If he' could not provide the range, “Pains Gone,” Says Lady, After She Had Taken CARDUI In describing how her health im proved after she had taken Cardui, Mrs. Ralph R. Courtney, of Wythe ville, Va., said: “I was run-down and suffered from pain in my side. I wanted to feel well and get rid of the pain in my side, so I sent for Cardui and began taking it. By the time I had taken three bottles of Cardui, I was feeling much better. The pains had gone. I am very glad to recommend Car dui to other young women.” . . . Thousands of women testify Car dui benefited them. If it does not benefit YOU, consult a physician. (1 a bottle, at drug stores. Together with many a pot and pan That a woman needs to feed a man. These are the men, if the house Is small, Who help to build, but they are not all. If the maiden wants a PIANO to play, An ALARM CLOCK to waken her early each day, A VACUUM CLEANER, a PIC TURE FRAME, A FRONT DOOR PLATE to hold her name, And the thing you find wherever you go, Must not be forgotten, a RADIO. Then others step into rank and file To make her house a HOME WORTH WHILE. Youngest Mother, 11, To Quit School Kodak, Tenn.—Mildred Morgan, eleven years old, believed to be the youngest mother in the medical history (of the South, must give up school to care for her child, a baby girls. This was decreed by the mother of the school-girl mother,; Mrs. Hulda Morgan Cates, who said Miildred would have to raise the child herself. Mildred’s baby, born last Sunday, was declared normal. This country seems to be suf fering from a combination of hot lir and cold feet. In the good old days they had quilting parties, while in these times ]>f labor troubles, they have quitting parties. For this is the home the TOWN built. The GROCER, the BAKER, the - seller of MEAT, The MERCHANTS who handle all good things to eat; The ICE and the MILK and the EGGS and the FOOD, The COAL and the CLOTHES and the GAS and the WOOD; The STOREKEEPERS handling all things she can use; The EDITOR telling the latest news. The PREACHER, the LAWYER, the DOCTOR, the JUDGE, The MOWER OF LAWNS and the. MAKER' of FUDGE. There’s hardly a soul in the town, you will find, Who hasn’t some sort of connection to bind His personal profit and happiness through His part in constructing a "HOME for just two.” And every HOME in, the town is the same! It s a wonderful work and a beauti ful game! The TOWN is the gainer as well as the pair, For their comfort and ease make them permanent there. And every new dwelling that opens its door For a loving pair and their worldly store Makes the town worth living in that much more— FOR THIS IS THE HOME THE TOWN BUILT. * ON ANY JOB there are plenty flpi of times when you just don’t B|f| seem to click.
