BABY WEEK OPENS HATIOMLCRDSADE Campaign to Improve Health of Infants Begins Today Throughout Nation. OMAHA TAKES BIO PART "See, I am sewing for the Red Cross," said the pretty girl proudly. "What are you doing, Mrs. Jones?" Mrs. Jones opened the nursery door upon three healthy children, one still in his crib, and said: "That's what I am doing for my country. "The armies of tomorrow are in the nurseries of today. The standing of the United States of America among the nations of the world in 1950 is being settled today by the mothers of America." "Do your bit." says the president. "Everyone can help." But the mother needs do no more than she is already doing in standing behind the mental and moral fiber of her children the future defenders of America. No one who is not connected with the work realizes how the Uiu'ted States has advanced within the last twenty-five years in its solution of this most important problem the health of its children. More Than Local. Better Baby Week, being celebrated here, is more than a local movement for healthier children. It is a sign of a new national attitude toward the future. Time was when big families "just Trowed" like Topsy. Look over the lists of your ancestors in the family liible and see the proportion of child hood deaths among the eleven or twelve children of your great-grandfather. Half of them or more were carried away before they even reached childhood. It was due to no lack of love to no lack of care. It was due i to ignorance. Today American people are learn ing, and learning fast, that a healthy babyhood means a healthy childhood, and a healthy childhood means a strong manhood. Co-operating with the movement for better babies all over the Unitetd States are strong industrial forces, such as the manufacturers, whole salers, and retailers who handle prod ucts for babies. What an incalculable service is rendered, for example, by the manu facturer of a pure baby food, who is making possible strong childhood, even under conditions where it is im possible to procure pure milk and this is a condition more widespread than most people realize. Such manufacturers are producing a complete food itself made out of pure milk modified to meet babies' needs so that it is as near as possible to the babies' natural food. Think what it means to the happi ness of the home when a child passes without trouble through these dim cult and dangerous years which used to be the most dreaded of its whole existence. Now the healthy child is the rule where before he was the ex ception. Babies. Are Safer. The mother can go into any drug store today and by buying the right baby food be assured that her child is as safe as if he were under the care, of the "greatest specialists in the country. This food itself represents the work of specialists whose knowl edge is based on not one baby, but hundreds and thousands of babies. It is as great a blessing as universal ed ucationthe universal availability of the right food for babies. The nation is awake. Preparedness is in the air. We are at last getting ready for any emergency. In the van of the great army of tomorrow move the women of America fighting the greatest fight of them all the fight for better babies and for the healthier, stronger generation of the future. ICE CREAM WITHOUT CREAM. Tallow and Berries Smothered With Snow a Delicacy in the Far North. The main food of the Alaskan In dian is meat and fish. In the winter many people do not cook the fish at all, simply leave them in the house for two or three days and then eat them raw. Women always serve the food and always see that others are satis, fied before beginning their own meal. They have to be very careful not to spill anything, for that would bring bad luck to the one whom they are serving. When a person is invited to eat in the village it is considered bad manners to eat all that is before him. He must leave enough to take home to the members of the family who did ont come. The host generally gives his guest a piece of dried fish to hold the food which he is to take home. The fish is broad and flat, about one-half an inch thick, and the bundle is carried away openly, with out any attempt at hiding it. In the suiier, berries, fruit and roots are added to the diet, and ber ries are frozen in the fall to last through the winter. Since white peo ple came, flour and canned goods have changed the food very much. It is easy to have ice cream for dessert any time. There is no cream about it, but tallow and berries are mixed with snow, sometimes fish be ing added to it, and when it is frozen it makes a fine dish. Southern Workman. PUTTING IT OVER THE COW Japanese Know Beans and Extract Artificial Milk From - Them. The milk problem is by way of being solved in Japan. Vhere cows are scarce, by an extensive use of arti ficial milk derived from the soy bean. First, the Japanese soak the beans, then boil them until the liquid turns ! white, when they add sugar and phos j phate of potash. The boiling is re j sumed until a (uid results very ! similar in consistency and appearance to ordinary condensed milk. When water is added soy milk ts hardly to be distinguished from fresh cow's milk. I In composition also the artificial j milk is almost like genuine milk. Its ; j proteins, tats and sugars are in very i nearly the same proportion, although, ' of course, they are wholly vegetable ! in origin. Whether the substitute is equal to real cow's milk as a form of nourish ment is not quite clear, for much of the value of milk as a food comes from the enzymes or vitamiues it con tains. The Japanese, however, declare that it serves all the purposes of cow's milk, and that it has the advantage of being less liable to infection when properly and carefully manufactured.
