one thing, 'the Egyptians did not
know how to draw the eye in profile.

amine Egyptian. drawings. Legend
says the first shadow portrait was
made by the, lover whose betrothed
had died. As she lay on her bier,
'her shadow was cast upon the wall
by the candle at her head. From
this he drew her likeness so that
he might keep her image before him.

“Entangling’ alliances" is a phrase
credited to President Jefferson. In

“All right, Bessie." said the boss
of the little factory which was mak
ing jackets for soldiers; "'Did you
want to see me about something?"
The thin middle-aged woman stood
up from the chair in the outer of
fice and looked earnestly at the boss
with her huge. grave gray eyes.
“It’s about this ten percent
pledge.“ she began.
“Oh. that's all right. Bessie." the
boss said. “I'd been meaning t!
speak to you about that. We don't
quite a lot of mouths to feed. Let':
see, you make $25.50 a week includ
ing overtime, don‘-t you?"
“Yes. sir. but . .
The boss smiled.
“Don’t give it another thought.
Bessie. You've got your hands full
now. Uncle Sam knows you haven't
got a penny to spare. Don‘t let it
worry you. We understand."
The boss tux'hed to go back into
his private office. "
“But what I wanted to say was
. . .” Bessie raised her voice and
the boss looked around. "I wanted
to say, would a dollar a— week he too
little? You see, after we get the
living expenses paid. there's just
about a dollar a week left. Would
they be willing to accept'a dollar
a week?" . _
"They’d be more than willing."
the boss said quietly. "They'd be
proud." '
Bessielooked relieved.
“All we have to do is scrimp a
little," she said. “I’d feel just ter.
rible if we cpulQn’t givg something.“
Back in the boss' office a repre
sentative o! the Treasury Depart
ment was waiting. The boss shut
the door and sat down.
“I've just seen the greatest single
sacrifice I know of." the boss said.
“Listen, if you want to hear what
American women are made of . . ."

the files of the Treasury Depart

Chemicd for Lard
For years researchers of Chi
cago’s Swift'az Co., hunted for a
chemiCal which would delay the
spoiling of lard by oxidation and
would protect lard‘s linoleic constitu
ent. rich in vitamin F. They finally
found what they wanted in gum
guaiac, 'made 'from the: sap of the
tropical American guaiacum tree.
Swift’s President John Holmes said
that lard treated with tiny amounts
of gum guaiac was odorless. bland
in flavOr.

Sergeant Frye of the Seventy-Sixth

the latest group of trainees to ar

Mrs. America Meets the War
EDITOR’S NOTE: War touches every hMe and citizen. This
column- based on official government information and prepared
by the Office of War Information, shows how the war will
affect Mrs. America and her home.
June brides won‘t be spending
‘the time usually given to choos
ing patterns in silver-plated flat
ware. There aren‘t the patterns
this year from which to choose be
cause half of the silver plate manu-
facturers are turning out war
goods. and silver itself, is going
into such items as lining of air
plane engine bearings and in sil
ver brazing alloys for joining metal
parts. Manufacturers are making
their restricted allotment of silver
go as far as possible. That means
making only the most essential
items knives, forks. dessert
spoons and teaspoons. Many of
the patterns that June brides of
peacetime have chosen are being
discontinued until after the war.
Mrs. America can be certain of
plenty of vitamin-enriched bread
for her war working family. The
WPB has placed thiamine hydro
chloride (Vitamin BI) and nico
tine acid (niacin) under allocation
control so that there will be _ade
quate supplies of these vitamins
for enriching bread, flour. and
cereals. ( '
The demand for used metal cain
and flat bedsprings resulting from
curtailed production of new bed
springs has brought forth specific
dollars and cents ceilings by the
Office of Price Administration.

ings were placed upon used bed-

times were so excessive that they
would actually be more than the
bedsprings cost brand new. A
tag showing the maximum re
tail price must be attached to each
bedspring offered for sale.
And speaking of bedsprings. the
WPB survey of sleeping equip
ment reveals that manufacturers
are turning out enough sleeping
equipment to meet civilian needs
despite manpower shortage, gov
ernment restrictions on critical
materials and demands from the
armed forces. Since innerspring
mattresses are out for the dura
