fun to fix because
it does not re
quire standing over a hot stove to
have it ready. For the simpler type
of party, rely heavily on cooling
thirst quenchers with perhaps a few
cookies or small cakes arranged at
tractively on a platter. If the party
takes the place of dinner, you might
have several substantial salads. Try
serving on the lawn or garden, buf
ifet style, and save strain on house
You will want to suggest coolness
In your table settings. Blues and
greens are very comfortable and
you can relieve the monotony by
having flowers in whites, pink or
yellow, whichever goes best with
what you have.
I’ve picked out some especially
good beverages for this season.
Don’t use your supplies of canning
sugar for such things as this. If you
can manage to purchase ice cream
and sherbet for the drinks, do so
and save the sugar where it’s most

Easy Sips: Next time you have
iced tea. flavor with honey in

lemon and orange wedges. It's
If you have leftover fruit juices,
coffee or tea, make ice cubes with
them. Then frosty drinks will not
have that watery flavor. Bits of
fruit, berries or mint sprigs may
also be frozen in ice cubes to
make them attractive.
For a good afternoon pick-up,
try chilled tomato juice with gin
ger ale; or, use apricot nectar
with a dash of lemon juice.
Iced coffee takes on a party
touch when topped with meringue
and sprinkled with cinnamon.

New Operation Saves
Lives of Blue Babies
A new type of operation, appar
ently the first of its kind in medical
history, has saved the lives of three
"blue'’ babies, according to a re
port of the Journal of the American
Medical association. Heretofore, a
"blue” baby with heart disease pres
ent at birth was considered beyond I
the reach of surgical aid.
In “blue” babies, a malformed
heart causes insufficient oxygen in
the blood, resulting in a bluish color •
to the lips and skin. This deficiency
is due to the failure of the blood to
obtain adequate oxygen as it flows
through the lungs.
The operation is performed by en
tering the chest cavity. One of the
pulmonary (lung) arteries is joined
to a large artery leading away
from the heart. The greater pressure
in this blood vessel forces the blood
to flow into the pulmonary artery
and on through the lung. In all three
cases, the pulmonary artery was too
small to allow adequate amounts of
blood to get through to the lung. Al
though the three operations differed
in some details, in each instance the
surgery greatly increased the vol
ume of blood which reached the
lungs, and hence the amount of
blood which received oxygen.
Discover New Vitamin A
In Fish Liver Oils
Discovery and isolation of a new
vitamin A in fish liver oils, a “twin”
of the well-known vitamin A, has
been announced. The new vitamin
now has been isolated in crystalline
form, and has been found to have
substantially the same biological po
tency as vitamin A.
Vitamin A itself, in fish liver oils,
is not a single substance, but a mix
ture of the vitamin first crystallized
with a new vitamin A only recently
obtained in crystalline form. Tests
showed that from 20 to 40 per cent
of vitamin A in typical oils such as
halibut and dogfish liver is present
as the new substance. There are
preliminary indications that the con
tent of the new vitamin may range
as high as 58 and 49 per cent in
whale liver oil, and USP Cod Liver
Oil No. 2.
The presence of this new factor in
vitamin A had long been suspected.
With its isolation, some of its chem
ical, physical and biological proper
ties have been established in the
new work on the vitamin now an
Cooking Vegetables
The rule that water should be boil
ing before vegetables are put in to
cook has added support from recent
research at Agricultural Extension
stations. At the Alabama station,
turnip greens, put on to cook in
about their own weight of cold wa
ter and cooked 30 minutes from
the time boiling began, held only
about a third of their original vita
min C. but those put into boiling
water and boiled the same length
of time held three-fourths of their
C. Likewise, asparagus and green
beans, cooked by these two meth
ods, retained much more C when
started in boiling water. The Michi
gan station reports that plunging
greens into boiling water saves more
C than cooking with only the wa
ter that clings to the leaves. Chard
and beet tops were tested. Chard,
cooked about 22 minutes in a cov
ered pan with no water except that
left on the leaves after washing, held
only 5 to 8 per cent of its C, and
beets greens only 16 to 17 per cent.
But when the greens were plunged
into rapidly boiling water, they !
cooked to the same tenderness in i
7 to 8 minutes, and the chard
held 12 to 26 per cent of its original j
C, the beet greens 25 to 35 per cent.
The shorter cooking by boiling wa
ter start was the reason for the :
greater saving of C, the scientists I
Treaty Port
Foochow was one of the five treaty
ports forced open by the British in
China in 1842. Later, when the clip
per was queen of the seas, this port
became China’s leading tea-trade
center. British and American sailing
ships raced one another to western
ports with precious cargoes from
Foochow that meant a fortune to
owners and crews. A pioneering
Yankee clipper was the Thomas
Perkins, which sailed from New
York in November. 1844, and re
turned in April, 1846, after rounding
both Cape Horn and the Cape of
Good Hope. Outdistr/nced by other
tea-exporting centers of the Far
East. Foochow in normal times still
ships high-priced tea and other prod
ucts, including timber, camphor,
silks and fruits. Its fine lacquer
: vares are noted around the world.
Inhaled Oxygen
With all living things, inhaled oxy- j
gen burns the carbon and hydrogen '
of the cells, frees heat, and forms
products that are exhaled.’ We draw J
air in and out of our lungs in order
to supply the organs and tissues with
oxygen, and to rid them of carbonic
acid. By far the greatest part of
our bodies’ oxygen intake passes
through the lungs. To be exact. 99
per cent of it with the remaining 1
per cent passing through the skin.
But of the total amount ot oxygen
which is consumed by the skin, uine
tenths comes from the blood, which
received it from the lungs, and o’
j tenth comes from the air. Tha’

Lynn Says:
Supper Thoughts. When you
are having cold cuts and a sub
stantial salad as main interest for
supper, have something hot in the
way of a quick bread just out of
the oven. Good suggestions in
clude these that bake quickly:
com bread, whole wheat biscuits,
prune muffins and orange mar
malade rolls.
A freezer of homemade io'
cream is a welcome treat at out
doors suppers. Try some flavored
with fresh berries or apricots and
be sure to have the cookie jar
Doll up your garden party sup
per salads with plenty of relishes
such as olives, pickles, radisn
roses and carrot sticks. They
make for nice nibbling.
Bring out the checked cloths
and paper napkins, old-fashioned
jugs for flowers, and picnic uten
sils for under-the-trees eating.
They go with the atmosphere.
American Diet
Before the war, surveys indicated
that the American diet was deficient
in thiamin, riboflavin and niacin—
the nutrients that are added when
bread and flour are enriched. It is
true that the whole grain breads
contain these nutrients naturally,
but the American people prefer—
even insist on—light, fluffy, white

Farm Employment
Total farm employment in the
United States in 1944 was about 7
per cent less than the average of
the period 1935-39, according to esti
mates of the Bureau of Agricul
tural Economics. During 1943 the
farms of the nation were operated
with a total farm employment 5 per
cent below the five prewar years.
This means, therefore, that the total
employment was reduced in 1944
about 2 per cent below the average
employed during 1943. In the 1935
39 period about 10,700,000 people
were engaged in farm employment
on the average. Roughly three
fourths of these were family work
ers, and about one-fourth was hired
labor. In Illinois, Indiana, Michi
gan, Ohio and Wisconsin about
1,475,000 were employed on the aver
age during the same period, of
whom 77 per cent were family la
borers. For 1944 the proportion of
family labor was unchanged for
the nation, but for the foregoing
states the proportion represented by
family labor had increased to 83
per cent.
