Food Sense—Not Nonsense
Heed The Storm Signals
By heeding storm signals one can avoid a deluge of small fry stub
born “No’s!” which may rival a hurricane for upsetting mealtime at
mosphere. Knowing how to recognize the forerunners of “table time
itorms” is almost a necessity for parents.
Youngsters and appetites easily are parted—a fact to remember when
otherwise healthy children dawdle over food. The best food can fail to
appeal if emotions are in a turmoil. Where meals are peaceful, stubborn
feeding problems are not so apt to occur. The dining room should never
turn into a court of appeals with father forced to play judge and mother
is on the jury. Excitement of any kind—particularly anger, fear or
other intense emotions—hinders digestion.
The overly hungry, overly tired child does not enjoy his food. School
age children, constantly on the go, should have a few minutes rest or
quiet before meals.
Children with hearty appetites at mealtimes and who eat a good
variety of foods, often are genuinely hungry by mid-morning or after
noon. They need an “extra meal”—a sandwich of enriched bread and a
glass of milk or some fruit—eaten at midmorning or after school to
supply required nutrients and energy.
New foods or new ways of serving well-liked foods can help keep
mealtime interest high. To avoid an “I won’t eat it” storm, only one
new food is offered at a time. Only small portions of it are served the
It should be kept in mind that children like simple, colorful foods—■
foods neither too strongly flavored nor highly spiced.
Youngsters’ attitudes follow th?Tonr>- set by mother and dad. Dad’s
frown or ill-timed comment r-' o-t a ford can bring on a crisis, with
mother’s plans going agroyn'1 Fenny Fs keep family meals a

Carport with Woven Fence
A CARPORT with a woven
wall makes a low-cost, in
teresting and mighty useful
addition to any house. This is
especially true if the carport
has a storage area for garden
Such a carport is shown in
the illustration. A free plan for
its construction is available.
The handsome woven wall is
made by weaving strips of Ma- |
sonite siding, one foot wide |
and eight feet long, between 4
by 4-inch posts set into the con
crete driveway. Readily pliable j
for this weaving process, the
Masonite siding is easy to work
with, as it is splinter-free and
free of defects. It takes a beau
tiful paint finish and will last
An important feature of the
garden tool storage room is the
“Peg-Board” paneling on which
may be suspended the various
tools by means of interchange
able metal fixtures. These per
forated panels, the lumber and
other materials needed for this
project may be obtained at lum
ber yards. For the free plan :

RETIREMENT AFTER 18
YEARS OF SERVICE
FOR THE CITY
Major Underwood, 2721 Cald
well St. is serving his last week as
night watchman at the City Hall,
after 18 years of faithful service. '
He is being retired on pension for [
the rest of his life. We know
that he did the job well, or he
never would have been there 18
He has seen many come and go,
and no doubt, that there were1
times he felt like going too, but
decided to stay on and gave the ;
best he had to his job, and now
the BEST comes back to him.
For part of those 18 years he
was night watchman at the Police
Station. What an exciting job
that must have been. Outside of
visiting his brother, Ralph, who is
in the Veterans’ Hospital, we can
visualize Mr. Underwood doing
just what his name implies, un
der the nearest shade tree, or in
that easy chair on the porch, just
taking it easy from now on.

Are you fit to drive? Safe driving depends on many factors. You must
know and obey the traffic laws, of course. But what about your ability to
drive—to handle a car safely?
Traffic accidents are zooming and the public is aroused. Public offi
cials are grim. Some states are already tightening their driver licensing
laws. The time is not far distant when all drivers must pass periodic re
examinations to determine their continued fitness to operate a motor
vehicle. The fact that you have a driver’s license today doesn’t mean you
will have it a few months or a year from now.
So give yourself that tougher test right now—
How about your accident record—good or bad?
How about your police record—good or bad?
How about your physical and mental condition?
Don’t gamble. Drive safely, obey the law, and be sure you are fit
