CHANGING FOOD HABITS
IMPROVE FOOD SELECTION
I Source: U S Dept of Agriculturt
Milk and its products are gain
ing steadily in favor as a source of
protein in the American diet. United
States Department of Agriculture
statistics analyzed by the National
Dairy Council show that the amount
of protein supplied by dairy prod
ucts for human consumption in
creased 18.5 per cent from 1920 to
3941. Intake of protein from meats
increased 8.6 per cent and from all
vegetables and fruits only 4.3 per
Most of these gains were made at
the expense of grain products. Pro
tein consumed in the form of grain
decreased 17.6 per cent. Since the
protein of milk, ice cream and
cheese is of the highest quality,
these changes are of particular im
portance in this wartime period. An
adequate amount of high quality
protein is essential in the forma
tion and repair of all living tissues
—muscles, skin and blood. An in
adequate supply of such protein
may result in a breakdown in hu
man tissues more serious than ordi
narily caused by vitamin deficien
cies. Dairy products contribute to
maximum health and efficiency and
become increasingly important
when other important sources of
protein are less available for civ
AAA News Notes
The War Production Board has
made available for use in Nebras
ka 17.900,000 board feet of soft
lumber for specific farm needs.
County USD A War Boards have
been authorized to assign to farm
ers AA-2 preference ratings for
the purchase of such lumber dur
ing the months of July, August
War Boards can issue these
preference ratings only for main
tenance and repair of agricultural
buildings or equipment, new con
struction essential to the food pro
duction program and the recon
struction of essential buildings
destroyed by fire. Lumber cannot
be qbtained by farmers through
this special rating for dwellings.
The lumber made available
through this allocation is only to
supplement the lumber regular
ly obtained by farmers through
AA-3 and AA-4 ratings. Only af
ter failure to obtain lumber by
giving a statement on intended
use to his dealer, should a farmer
make application to his War
Board for an AA-2 rating. Deal
ers may extend these ratings for
the purpose of obtaining supplies
or replacing inventories.

It is estimated the public debt

The bill pertaining to the Office
of Price Administration is still
being discussed in the Senate.
The House reduced the appropria
! tion. It prohibited the Use of any
funds for the payment of any sub
! sidies or roll back prices and
| made it mandatory that every in
1 dividual in a price policy position
; must have at least five years ex
| perience in the problem under his
! control. Many of the present ex
j ecutives who direct price policies
| have had no business experience.
! There have been entirely too
many impractical directiyes from
these bureaucratic theorists who
seem to be more concerned with
the complete regimentation of the
American people than they are
with the proper and reasonable
administration of an Act of Con
gress. Some of their policies are
causing failures of small business.
It is felt that the subsidy program
will cause a serious threat to our
food supply. It causes inflation.
The OPA was designed to assist
the war effort and keep dowm in
flation, but it seems to be having
the opposite effect.
With the United States trying
to carry half of the world on its
shoulders, it will be a miracle if
shortages and hardships do not
A telegram received today from
the conference of the Midwest
Farm Bureau reads in part as fol
low's: “The subsidy and price roll
back on foods proposed by the
administration is a subtrafuge for
increasing wages and other con
sumer incomes already at infla
tionary levels. It will be expens
| ive to administer. Benefits will be
I small in proportion to total costs.
; It will continue the already exist
ing ruinous confusion. It contrib
I utes to rather than controls in
! flation. It will impose further
I regimentation of production and
distribution and will aggravate
I our post war price and income
; problem.” The Midwest Farm
Bureaus represent 12 states with
: 300.000 members. They are beg
| ging their representatives to in
sist that administrative authori
ties cease their efforts to inflict
this program upon them.
The National Grange set a let
ter to Franklin Roosevelt with
some of the following quotations:
“Price ceilings as a remedy for in
flation have been tried hundreds
of times during the past two
thousand years; not once have
they succeeded over an extended
period. They have resulted in cre
ating food shortages, black mar
kets and inflation. We have an
annual income of approximately
40 billion dollars in excess of con
sumers goods available. It is im
possible to dam this rapidly in
creasing sumlus income by price
ceilings. This surplus is increas
ing at a rate of a billion and a
half to two billion dollars each
month. Ceiling prices cut off pro
duction just as they have always
done wherever tried.” A wire
from the North Platte Valley
Lamb Feeders Association states
in part: “The meat subsidy and
price roll back program has al
ready demonstrated that it will
add nothing but confusion to live
stock conditions which are al
ready chaotic. We are definitely
against any subsidy and any other
unnecessary government interfer
ence.” The Nebraska Stock Grow
ers Association meeting in Gor
don passed resolutions which said
in part: ‘‘Ceilings on fresh beef
creates in practice a ceiling on the
live animal. The imposition of
price ceilings on cattle would be
clearly impossible and would only
add to the present confusion.”
They further stated that ‘‘Subsi
dies to the producers of livestock
is an effort to regiment all the
people in American agriculture."
The Nebraska congressmen have
consistently tried to impress up
on the Office of Price Administra
tion that it should follow the con
sidered judgment and advice of
the men on the firing line at home
who are practical and know the
problems of food production.

DO THEY REALLY?
"SHE GAVE HER ONLY SON"
In the window of that little
white bungalow down on the cor
ner waves a little white flag. On
thal) flag is a Gold Star. Yes Mrs.
Murphy has given her only son in
the service of his country. Bill is
‘‘missing in action”! Often as she
glances at the Star, Mrs. Murphy
thinks of her boy,—of the many
kind words he spoke,—of the
many kind acts he had done.
Over 1900 years ago. another
Mother stood, thinking of all the
kind deeds her Son had done. She
stood there, looking up at her Son
as He was dying on the Cross.
Yes, soldiers were involved in His
death too, yet He was entirely in
nocent of any fault. She recalled
all the kind words that He had
spoke,— the tender lovingness of
His actions. He had harmed no
j one; now He was suffering, taunt
ed by His executioners and the
mob ’ as He was dying. He was
i dying that others might live,—

Is it any wonder that Catholics
refer to the Blessed Virgin Mary
as the Mother of Sorrows? Who
could know greater sorrow than
was hers now? And yet, she made
this sacrifice willingly for she
knew it was the will of God.
Since it was the will of God, she
united her grief to the sufferings
of her Son.
To whom could mothers better

more comfort and solace than in
