cause the scope of the organisation has

name to the Mid-West Cement Users'
About 1W cement mtn listened with
great Interest to T. It. Ark's Illustrated
address on "Concrete .loads." He Is con
sulting road engineer of tho Towa High
way commission and professor of high
way engineering1 at the Iowa State Col
lege of Agriculture at Ames. He wan
formerly road engineer of tho Illinois
Highway commission, so his expedience In
good road campaigns won close "attention
for his nddress.
"Good roads are ' necessary for the
future of the country." he said, "and nro
rapidly being established In all states.
Ih most cases concrete, some times rein
forced, Is ultimately adopted for perma
nent public roads, as It Is tho most prac
tical" Albert C. Arcnd, n local engineer and
structural expert, read a paper on "Ite
Inforccd Concrete," In which lie sounded
tho "safety first" warning to tho
cement men. Ho paid:
"If 'safety first was the nils of oil
engineers and builders there would bo
no collapse of buildings and no need of
the present extensive Investigation of
building catastrophes. There Js no safer
or more economical method of building
than reinforced concrete construction.
It It Is properly used. The collapse of
the rclnrorccd concrete buildings at
Cedar Itnplds and elsewhere was duo
not to the type of -construction, but to
faulty cnglntcrlng. 'Safety first' must
be tho motto."
Not IIoit Cheap, lint How Good,
The same Idea was expressed In some
what different words by Ccrsten Isen
berg of New York, who In the course of
a paper on "Ornamental Concrete,"
emphasised the fact thnt "not how
cheap, but how good," wsb, the best
standard to be held In mind In making
cement products. He Is known arouhd
the convention and the Cement show as
"the man with the concrete hat," and
boasts that ho always has concreto on
his mind, both figuratively and literally.
Harry I. I'urcell, n concreto machinery
man of Chicago, told tho convention that
the way to meet criticism of the concrete
Industry was by honest methods. This
led to- a poll of tho members prosent, to
determine how many standurd cement
tlocks aro rnndo from one sack of cement

The Cost of Living
An "Economy Book" For Every American Housewife
BEYOND doubt, this book is the
most widely talked of book of
the year. It occupied an honored place
among the gifts of the White House bride, Mrs.
Francis B. Sayre, and was not only a great
surprise to her family, but a delight to them,
for it is so unique and novel that no other
bride in this broad land can ever completely
share her joy. This unusual gift was the first
copy printed of the Economy Administration
Cook Book which the editors have dedicated
to her mother, named in' compliment to her
father's administration, built around the auto
graph cook book of her paternal grandmother
and illustrated with pictures of its original
pages in the handwriting of the President's
THE women whose forethought
and generosity made the book
possible have been identified with the
affairs of the Republic from Colonial
times to the present day. They have con-
trwwtM mi ZMttroua number recipes from the cook

AT a conservative estimate each woman's
experience through the teaching of her
mother extends over a period of at least fifty
years, which means a combined experience of over
22.500 years for the whole 450 women concerned In
this freat attempt to' instruct the American house-'
wife in a more scientific effort to cope with the
increased cost of living. The business of making
ends meet in the home is just as important and
difficult as the masculine business of making money.
When good cooks become better cooks, well-fed
families will become better fed without increasing
the cost or decreasing the quality, because their food
will be prepared alone more scientific lines. Nothing,
has done more for the happiness of the human race
than scientific cookery. ''
AFTER months of painstaking effort the
book is ready for distribution. The
method which these wonderful women selected
to distribute the result of their long labors to the
women of each state is as novel as it is expeditious.'
To make certain that the book go Into every home
the editors fixed the price at 69 cents a price which
all can easily afford. To avoid the cost of main
taining an expensive organization to handle the
books, they selected the leading newspapers in every
community and invited their co-operation in this
nation-wide movement. This paper is indeed glad
of the distinction conferred upon it, and believes
that the public at large will be greatly benefited
and pleased with the Work of the nation's best
