Wasted Food of
Benton Co. Would
Peed Small Army
Benton County’s 3786 , house
wives could feed 826 soldiers for a
year with the food wasted annually
in homes of the county, an official
of the country’s leading food dis
tributor estimated recently.
This amazing figure is based on
accurate government statistics
which indicate that at least 1,589,-
252 pounds of food are wasted an
nually in Benton County homes,
according to a produce-buying op
- erator.
..“Food is a munition of war and
everyone must fight waste of it
now,” it is pointed out. “Efficient
food producers, processors and dis
tributors have worked for years to
reduce waste. One company, for
example, has cut waste and spoil
age on perishable fruits and vege
tables by 50 percent during the
past 20 years. Now the govern
ment is urging a similar war on
food waste in the home.” '
Kitchen efficiency should in
clude three points: (1) Buy as near—
ly as’ possible just the required
amount; (2) serve moderate help
ings, and (3) use all left-overs.
Although housewives have elim
inated much food waste since Pearl
Harbor, over eight percent of all
food bought for home consumption
is still wasted. While it is‘ ob
vious that waste cannot be pre
vented entirely, carefully planned
conservation should cut the loss;
in half and thus 414 soldiers could ‘
be fed with the resulting savings
in homes oflthis county.
Civilians ‘eat about 1514, pounds
of food each year, while the aver
age soldier “puts away" 1916
pounds annually.

Power Co. Makes Big
Cut in Mileage
War-time conservation mea-,
sures made possible by the co
operation of electricity users have
resulted in a 54 per cent reduc
tion in miles traveled by Pacific
Power. 8; Light company service
cars and trucks, according to R. H.
Skill, PP&L district manager.
Skill said the utility’s gasoline
and rubber conservation programx
was made possible largely because
customers have permitted group
ing of service calls by areas,
where before the war it was the
company’s policy to answer indi
vidual calls as fast as they came
in, day or night. War-time limit
ations on construction of new elec
-Itirc lines have also been contri-
Lbuting factors. ‘

County FSA Committee
Approves Medical Plan
At a recent meeting of the Ben
ton-Franklin Health Association
the directors took the necessary
steps to enlarge the program.
Their proposed changes will offer
aid to the farmers, farm laborers;
and persons following agriculture
pursuits. This plan is operated
with an agreement between . the
doctors and the health association
and there is also an agreement
with the hospital and the pharmal
cists. The purposed changes are
to cover complete medical aid
with few exceptions and will pro
vide care through the local phy
sician. The amount has not been
determined as of this date but
it is planned if the program is
supported by farm families the
rate will be between s4l and SSO
a year; This, of course, is gov
erned by the amount of partici
The people who are interested
in participating in this co-oper
ative plan between the doctors,
hospitals. and pharmacists should
attend the meetings that will be
held in your community in‘ the
near future.
The Farm Security county com
mittee of Benton and Franklin
county has made a study of- the
plan and made recommendations
that they are in favor of it and
that it should be presented to
the farmers in - the respective
areas as they believe the plan will
be of service to the people. i
The Benton county committee
recently held a meeting and those
in attendance were: Rolla Lan
ning, A. J . Thompson and Edwin
O. Wartensleben, county FSA
The meeting was called for the
purpose of _the new applications
and supplementals for various in
dividuals and they discussed the
possibility of the water facility
program and what part farm se
curity could play to help the
farmers in Benton county.
It was ‘brought out during the
brief discussion of the national
food problem and ' what part our
community could play in helping
feed the nation. It was decided
that we should encourage the
growing of necessary, war crops
and this lead to the question of
what crops could be grown in
our area that would pay and the
possibility of putting idle acres tn
work. -

know why English should be the

us who speak it aren’t always able
