Elizabeth, Dec. 15—Ways in wMch families may reduce the food bill without lessening the percentage of nutriment or seriously affecting the cheerfulness of the diner were indi cated in a talk given before the mem bers of the Elizabeth Housewives League and others. The speaker was Miss Elizabeth Mann, of the domes tic science staff at Teachers' College, Columbia, and an excellent presenta tion of the subject, "The Food Prob lem of the Housewife," was given. Miss Mann was introduced by Mrs. Donald M. Liddell. the president, af ter a few items of business had re ceived consideration. Throughout her talk Miss Mann kept to the fore the idea that thought, study, knowl edge and judgment are especially im portant factors in the business of housekeeping, and her address would have been a revelation to that type of girl who imagines that "going to housekeeping" is the simplest known undertaking. The necessity and development of the cold storage method of preserving food were briefly described by the speaker, who, from this point, went on to describe the individual house keeper's opportunity and danger in buying in quantity. Regarding the danger, Miss Mann spoke of buying apples by the barrel, and of the fre quent discovery that the smallest of them were not on the top. Trouble of this sort could be obviated by buy ing standardized fruit and vegetables, bearing the packer's or dealer's name, and Miss Mann said that it was also but fair to the man who sought to be honest with the public that he be given patronage. Planning a meal before going to purchase the articles for it was rec ommended, Miss Mann saying that it was a mistake for a housewife to go to market without an idea of what was in the market and of what she wanted. She said that the best way to build a menu was to build it around some seasonable article. Her illustrations were clear and practica ble. She showed how the decision, for instance, to have a heavy soup would suggest lighter food for the subsequent courses, and how the se lection of a hearty dessert would suggest a lighter meat course than when a dainty, light dessert was used. Miss Mann spoke of the high price of potatoes and of the wisdom of oc casionally substituting rice, samp or hominy. She told how to combine any of these with gravies or sauces that would make them more accept able to the members of the faniilv. Don't Forget tlic Baby "Moses" basket.

It also conveyed I the Information that she had been re ; ferred to the tuberculosis division by j the nurse employed by a local cor I poration to watch the" health of era ployea. "1'lease, doctor, let me go back to work," she pleaded. The doctor glanced at the chart and noted that 011 September 9, the day when she first visited the clinic, sho weighed 119 pounds, and that Bhe now weighs 113%. He looked at her drooping shoulders, at her nar row chest, at her tired brown eyes. He glanced at the result of the sput um analysis. "Positive" it read in big accusing letters. All the signs before him were eloquent of rapid iecllne. "I can't," ho responded. "But I must work," sho Insisted. "Why do you have to work?" he inquired. "I must eat, I must dress myself," jhe answered. "Doesn't yout father do that for fou?" "I have no father." "Your brothers, then?" "I have no brothers." "Your mother." "My mother, I havo to keep my namma. She is a practical nurse but he can't get cases. It is up to me." "Child you ought to be In a hospl al right now," said the doctor. 'Would your mother let you go?" "Yes, mamma wants me to get well nore than she wants anything else in he world," said the girl very seri >usly. "How would she get along?" "She'd manage somehow. Have you place in the hospital for me?" "No, wo haven't, and it's a dis race that we haven't," replied the octor. "You should bo tucked in a ospltal bed this very minute but wo aven't a bit of room for you. You're >ughing, you're losing weight, you're jnning a temperature but the best e can do is to put you on the wait ig list. Rome day, if it s not to late, we'll get you Into the hospital." The tired brown eyes filled with tears, but the drooping shoulders braced themselves gallantly. "I'll fight just as long and as hard as I can," said the wee slip of a girl. "I hope for mamma's sake that my , turn won't come too late." I By buying Red Cross Seals you ! help the organized movement to pro- , vide adequate care for all consump.
