America is Doing More for the Advancement of Scientific Cookery
Than Any Other Nation on the Globe
Administration "Economy Book"
Is Another Long Step in the Right Direction
IN 17th Century Boston the Puritan ladies used to meet in Ann Hutchinson's home and
discuss "burning questions of the day." Here we find one of the first attempts to co
.uierailonn Pa,si?C from one woman to the other the methods and plans which each ono found most
suitable for her needs, easiest to execute and most satisfactory in results. The Administration
liconomy Book is the modern idea of co-operation since it combines the experience of 450 representa
tive women and is written with the one idea of making tha average housewife more efficient. All
women would know what these women know if their opportunities had been equal, but the experience
ot the authors goes far beyond locality, and reaches out even to the boundaries of other countries.
THE collective influence of this wide experience will be felt for all future time in the life
of the nation and this book will stand as a towering monument of industry, economy
..... ond efficiency. The French women have long been famous for making money go far. From
childhood they are trained in all the department of that universal and most exacting business of
wtaien, the spending of money the making of ends meet This demands just as much industry and
care as any other business. Great credit is due the women of France, but the educated American
woman of wide experience is without a superior as a discriminating purchaser. Her appreciation of
style and quality is unmatched by any other nation, and America has done more for the advancement
of Scientific Cookery than has any other country on the globe.
Tho high cost of living is traced to causes which cannot be corrected by politician or law makers
and therefore it is high Urn that the problem be attacked from a different angle.
