The recent statement of a girl student at the Central High school at Kansas City, Mo., that she had never seen a pig was considered rath er a remarkable admission by the pro fessors to whom she was reciting. Bui when a half dozen other young women confessed that they, too. had never Been a live pig the professor conclud ed it was time thit his pupils should begin to rasp a knowledge of every day things. The fact that so many students In one class were unacquainted with pigs only through hearsay led an inquisi tive reporter to see how extensive thf Ignorance of the pig really was. The canvass of three Kansas City high schools revealed the fact that nearly 200 young women, mostly of marriage able age, had never seen a live mem ber of the porcine family And this in Kansas City, the second largest live stock market in the world. Or try them yourself. One pack age of Puffed Wheat, at a cost of ten cent3, will reveal a new delight. You will know, for the first time, how good cereals can be made. You will see grains that are crisp and nut-like, puffed to eight times their natural size. You will see grains made four times as porous as bread ready to melt in the mouth. You will see grains made digestible with every starch granule exploded. And you will see foods that chil dren like better than any foods you know. Puffed Wheat-lOc Puffed Rice-15c These are the foods invented by Prof. An derson, and this is his curious process: The whole wheat or rice kernels are put into sealed guns. Then the puns are revolved for "sixty minutes in a heat of 550 degrees. That fierce heat turns the moisture in the grain to steam, and the pressure becomes tremendous. Then the guns arc unsealed, and the steam explodes. Instantly every starch granule is blasted into a myriad particles. The kernels of grain arc expanded eight times. Yet the coats arc unbroken, the shapes arc unaltered. We have simply the magnified grain. One package will tell you why people de light in them. Order it now.
