about registering for the draft

Cooking Chinese which is the
way the people in the know
describe the preparation of Chi
nese food may seem an unusual
hobby for a professor of Physics
Yet Theodore jorgensen, pro
fessor in the Physics Depart
ment says that the interest of
physicists in cooking Chinese is
of nationwide proportions.
Jorgensen's interest in cooking
and eating Chinese came during
his study at Harvard through the
interest of a professor there. The
professor, who wanted to stuay
Chinese philosophy, made the ac
quaintance of Chinese in Boston
Chinatown.' They introduced him
to Chinese food at restaurant
where the Chinese ate not one of
the neon-lighted places set up for
the benefit of Americans.
The taste for Chinese food
seemed to catch on immediately
with the graduate students and
other faculty members. Soon all
the paoplo who knew about the
restaurant were doing much of
their entertaining there. The
place was the Yee Hong Guey
restaurant in Chinatown, Boston,
Students who became interested
in Chinese food at Harvard went
all over the United States and
carried the interest with them.

REINFORCED TIRE CHAINS OH CONVENTIONAL TIRES
Enghoms Find! Answer to VJmtor Traction Puzsh
Winterized tires and mud-snow tires may or may
not stop somewhat shorter on glare ice than con
ventional tires made of natural rubber, but tire
chains stop much shorter. Not shown on above
charts but generally understood is the fact that
tires made of cold synthetic rubber which wears
better skid or spin 10 to 35 per cent more than
natural rubber. Tests were made at Clintonville,
Wis., by National Safety Council's Committee on
Winter Driving Hazards. This committee consists
of public officials and automotive and safety engU
neers. Tests were made to end, confusion "over'',
conflicting claims which involve traffic safety
during winter months. , (, M1,

Get the "feel" of the road
by trying your brakes while
driving slowly and when no
other vehicles are near.
s Keep your windshield and
windows clear of snow and
ce, fog and frost. Be sure your
blades, and defrosters aw in
jr-od working order. You must
see danger to avoid it.
Use tire chains on ice and
snow. They cut braking
distances on cars and trucks 40
to 70 per cent and provide
needed "go" traction. Even
with definite help of chains,
careful driving la necessary.
r When you have to stop, pump your brakes
W Up nd down jamming them on may lock
the wheels and throw your car into a skid.
Adjust your speed to road
and weather conditions.
Slow down on wet, snowy or
icy roads so you can stop
when you have to.
fL Follow other vehicles at a safe distance
remember that, without chains, it takes from
3 to 12 times as far to stop on snow and ice as
on dry concrete.

Jorgensen reports that the Chi
nese food was the one thing he
regretted leaving behind when
he left Cambridge.
The history of his hobby from
that time on has its setting in
the Midwest. One summer in
search of books on deep freez
ing vegetables he found a Chi
nese cook book in the Ag Col
lege library. The book, "Cook At
Home In Chinese," by Henry
Low, although out of print for a
long time is now being pub
lished sgaln. Jorgensen reports
that according to the card It has
ben used seven times in the last
10 years. In addition he recom
mends two other books to stu
dents Interested In cook'n? Chi
nese. "How To Cook And Eat In
Chinese," by Buwei Yang Chao
and "Joy of Chinese Cooking,"
by Doreen Yen Hung Feng.
The first cookbook has the
symbols for the strange seasoning
that the Chinese use in their cook
ing. Jorgensen obtains these sea
sonings through a shop in Boston
or from Quong Yick, 238 W. 23rd
St., Chicago. The ordering should
be done by symbol.
To Ftart cooking Chinese the
following list of ingredients
should be added to the family
laraer, soy sauce, rrssh g nger
root, black beans, (dowsce) and
brown bean sauce. With the ex
ception of the ginger these are
fermented soy bean products.
During the war, these products
were made in America, but now
they are again being imported.
In his quest for Chinese food
Jorgensen has had some amusing
experinces. One occurred in a
Chinese restaurant in Denver. For
lunch he had eaten Chinese
greens with pork. Being in the
city at dinner time he re
turned to the same restaurant and
placed the same order. The wait
ress looked at him and said, "You
don't want to eat that that's
what you had for lunch."
Jorgensen always carries
with him a card bearinr the
symbols for Ch'nese d.:shes an1
sauces. This makes It easv to
order what he wants in a Chi
nese restaurant. He recommends
ordering dishes which are rec
ommended by the rss'aurant
for they are usually good.
Asked about the Chinese
method of cooking ricef Derhans
to be recommended to thrift
brides) Jorgensen described the
process as it was demonstrated
to him by a Chinese in the Con
sular service in Chicago. Take
one cup of rice, wash it and pour
off all the water. Add one cup of
water and cook in a closed kettle
at a low temperature so that no
steam escapes. If steam is escap
ing from the kettle the tempera
ture is too high.
Eating Chinese In the Jor
gensen household depends on
the time of year. In the sum
mer time, when the garden fur
nishes part of the things nec
ressarv to cook Chinese, they
eat Chinese frequently. Jor
gensen raises some of the veg
etables used in the cooking. He
Is even raising his own ginger,
although he was told lt could
not be done in this climate.
The Chinese, ha-'e the best
method of cooking vegetables
Jorgensen declares. You do not
cook vegetables Chinese unless
you could eat them raw. The
vegetables are heated in a little
peanut oil. One of the primary
Chinese considerations is to get
them hot enough to kill any bac
teria. All the liquid is saved, no
through heat or liquid. The liquid
inerals or vitamins are lost
is mixed with a little cornstarch
and all the flavor is preserved
with the vegetables. The food
somewhat resembles a hot salad
with gravy, Jorgensen said.
Many people object to cooking
Chinese because of the number
of sauces used. However,
Jorgensen said, the Chinese diet
is composed largely of rice and
the sauces make it palatable.
While working on the atomic
bomb in New Mexico Jorgensen
introduced the hobby of cooking
C..inese to many physicists. It
began when the people who lived
upstairs smelled the string beans
with beef which he was preparing.
They asked to be allowed to
join in the cooking and a
Chinese dinner club of about 24
people grew up. They met once
a month with the host provid
ing rice, tea and fruit for des
sert. The members each pro
vided a Chinese dish. They
still have Chinese dinners In
Los Alamos, Jorgensen reports.
Students in the department of
Physics at the University have
become interested in . cooking
Chinese. One student became ac
quainted with a Chinese student
on Ag campus. He was invited to
the professor's home. He was also
invited to bring a girl. He ap
peared, extremely late, according
to Chinese custom and without
When he smelled the food
being prepared he asked to use
the phone, to try to contact the
young lady. It seemed that he
was afraid to bring her for fear
the food would not be "the
real thing" and when he smelled
it he knew it was and wanted
her to get in on It.
Later that student wrote an
article on the cooking and sent
it to China where it appeared in
farm publication. He pre
sented Jorgensen with a copy in
Cooking Chinese can be very
expensive if one wishes to order
birds' nests and shark fins to ex
periment with, or one can cook
ordinary foods Chinese and derive
the same satisfaction Jorgensen
For those who may wish to ex
periment Jorgensen presents the
following recipe for Shrimp with
Giant Lobster Sauce:
1 pound raw shelled shrimp.
Lean meat from one pork
1 teaspoom of black beans
soaked until soft and mashed
with two cloves of garlic.
Z ejffs broken in a bowl.
A little cornstarch mixed to
a smooth paste with water.
2 tablespoons of peanut oil.
The best utensil for cooking is
a metal bowl with a rounded
bottom, but an ordinary skillet
can be used.
Heat the oil, add the pork and
black beans, mix and cook for "a
couple minutes." Add shrimp,'
fry for "a little while." Add
"enough hot water to almost cover
the shrimp." Add a dash of black
pepper and one level teaspoon of
Accent or Tang (from corner
Put a lid on the pan and steam
for a while." Thicken the juice
with cornstarch until medium
thick. Salt to taste. Add egg,
onion mixture and stir until tho
eggs break. Put on the lid. turn
out the fire and wait for the eggs
to coagulate. Pour the sauce
over a bowl full of cooked rice,
