Cans and Jars: You will have
noticed that your grocery shelves
present a different picture than
in the past. Instead of all food
being put up in cans, some food
has been preserved in glass.
In those foods placed in cans,
the government has decreed
three different sized cans.
A number two sized can, one
of the standard sizes yields 2(6
cups and will serve four to five
people. The number 2’6 sized
can averages 3(6 cups and feeds
Largest food can is number 10,
sually used by institutions and
restaurants. This large size is
not usually practical for a fam
ily of less than eight since it
yields 12 cups and would last for
at least two meals.

are allowed in the case of canned
meats, fish, baby food, and citrus

Frequent Gathering Also
Aids in Reducing Soilage
Consumers willing to pay high
prices will not readily accept eggs
that are soiled.
The poultryman who markets
dirty eggs must sell to less dis
criminating buyers at lower
prices. Records show that soiled
eggs bring from 7 to 12 cents
less per dozen than clean eggs
of the same quality.
Soilage of eggs can be reduced
with only a little care in addition
to that usually exercised by good
poultrymen. A few simple practices,

good clean material, such as ex

not be stained by broken ones.
Gathering the eggs frequently—at

the time of their exposure to soilage.
If an egg becomes soiled, it can
be cleaned by applying baking soda

THE WORKING LIVER
For a number of years I found
myself writing about the liver al
most once every month. I pointed
out the various jobs done by the
• - ■* wmm
liver such as manu- |
facturing bile and j
then the various jobs
done by the bile; the
storing of sugar in
the liver for future
needs of the body;
the importance of
the liver in filtering
out the harmful sub
stances from the
blood and the effects
these harmful sub
stances would have
on the body tissues
and body processes if they were not
filtered out; the coloring and other
materials in the liver used to help
form the blood; that the liver was
the largest organ in the body and
had within it about one-quarter of
all the blood of the body.
There was one point I mentioned
once or twice but did net emphasize
as I should have done and that was
the advisability of having the liver
tested for its working ability just as
the heart, kidneys, stomach, blood
vessels and other organs are tested.
A test can be made showing the
working ability of the liver by the
use of substances taken by mouth
or injected into a vein. The liver
should remove these substances
from the blood within a definite time
if it is doing its work properly. One
of these substances is hippuric acid.
In the Medical Journal of Austra
lia, Drs. Margaret Henderson and B.
Splatt report their results in 89 pa
tients with liver disease, 86 with va
rious other disorders, and 25 normal
adults or patients recovering from
minor ailments. Not only did the
results show the extent to which the
liver was damaged or unable to do
its work, and the extent of heart
damage, but it showed also how the
damaged condition of the liver was
' allowing poisons to aggravate other
i conditions present in the body, such
as pernicious anemia, tuberculosis
and rheumatic arthritis.
In the treatment of a sluggish
liver or a liver that is not doing its
work properly, the physician pre
scribes special diets and various
However, we can keep the liver
in good working condition by taking

Doing Good Work
A few years ago the statement
was made that at the present rate of
increase in the number of mental
cases in any and all communities,
within 50 years it would mean that
at least one - half the population
would require mental care. Natural
ly health departments everywhere
are trying to prevent this condition
by various means.
Today mental institutions by regu
lar and special forms of treatment,
by the help of visiting or resident
specialists — throat, teeth, heart,
lungs, and others—are able to send
back to home and business about
6 in every 10 patients admitted.
Where the greatest progress is be
ing made, however, is the recogni
tion of the “early” symptoms and
signs of mental ailments by the fam
ily and general physician, and the
sending of these early cases to a
mental or psychiatric clinic.
If the average taxpayer stopped
to think of what it costs to keep
just one patient in a mental institu
I tion, he would gladly pay a few
cents extra yearly to prevent it.
Dr. Victor H. Vogel of the U. S.
Health Service, as recorded by Sci
ence Service, states:
“It would not cost taxpayers a
cent if their local health services
added mental hygiene clinics to
their child health clinics and other
services. Such clinics would pre
vent mental breakdowns and so re
duce the number of patients cared
for in mental hospitals. Mental ill
ness is the most expensive kind be
cause of its long duration. If only
three people a year are saved from
becoming public charges in a men
tal institution, that means enough
money saved to support a mental
hygiene clinic for an entire year.”
The saving of money is but the
least of the benefits of a mental
clinic. It cannot be compared with
tlje saving of life and happiness.
Mental hygiene clinics help peo
ple whose lives are threatened by
other dangers, too. A divorce can
sometimes be prevented, a home
kept intact or a suicide prevented.
