HERE’S ONE WAY TO SAVE SUGARS
FRESNO, CALIF.—Dried figs from the San Joaquin Valley of
California are helping housewives all over the nation solve their
sugar rationing problems. With a 55 per cent natural sugar content
figs make possible a big reduction in usual sugar requirements of
delicious desserts, such as the old-fashioned Bread Pudding illus
trated above. Eaten out of hand, figs are also an ideal confection
for satisfying the sweet tooth of children and grown-ups alike.

'It isn't often that I can spend my money
twice—but War Bonds let me do exactly that!
"They're wonderful, anyway. Every time I
buy one, I feel inside the way I do when a
band plays the Star Spangled Banner! I sort
of feel I'm doing something for my country
and the boys in the service.
"Then, when I get down to earth again, I
realize that I'm doing something for myself
as well. I'm really saving money when I spend
it for War Bonds. I get to dreaming about what
I'll do when this war is over, and about the
things I want to buy. Things like the rest of
the equipment for that electric kitchen I have
my heart set on, but can't get for the duration.

"IN MEMORY OF DR. G. W.
(by MYRTLE M. GOODLOW
Through this great scientist,
and his ever searching quest—
Our land was truly blessed.
For soil which was a barren field
was made to richly yield,
And plants and flowers he loved
Have a wondrous story to tell.
In new shades and blossoms that
Always tell of Dr. Carver’s skill.
Dr. Carver used his talent
For the purpose 'twas meant
To glorify God and his race
And make this world a better
In which to live
By offering all he had to give
Not in terms of dollars and cents
But for the whole world’s benefit.
In our hearts he shall always live
And be our inspiration to carry r,n
And always do the best we can—
No matter how rough the road
As did this truly great American
For his country and his God.
Deep beneath the soil,
Where he loved to toil.
Mother earth clasps him to her
In Eternal Rest.
And the flowers and the trees,
Gently swaying in the breez.e
Softly sing their requiem,
O’er this great American.
