WOMEN MUST LID
AID, PDGSLEY SAYS
Conservation in Home is Host
' Important Professor in Agri
cultural School Tells food
Congress Hearers. '':'.
How serious the food shortage is,
Prof. C W. Pugsley told women at
the food conservation meeting Fri
"With a shortage of wheat staring
us in the face, millions of men al
ready retired from the Sejdj. of pro
duction on account of the. war, and
many more from this country to be
drafted, you women must help the
government conserve," he said.
The appointment of emergency-food
agents is contemplated by the gov
ernment, he said. Prof. Pugsley also
informed the women of emergency
' measures passed by the European
countries in handling the food situa
tion. : '
, "Government and state laboratories
are working day and night seeking
food substitutes. The use of whole
wheat flour instead of white is one
of the most important measures con
sidered." Grind Flour at Home.
"Grind whole wheat flour in the
homes." Prof. Pugsley advised. "A
small $5 grist mill will grind in thirty
minutes enough whole wheat to sup
ply a family of six for one week. For
families which cannot afford the mill.
' let power mills be put into school
buildings or social centers for free
use. Buy the wheat in carload lots
and sell it to the poor at cost There
are persons actually starving now in
their efforts to keep up with the high
cost of living."
Prof. Pugsley then told of an as
tourdingly simple method of drying
truit or vegetables in only twenty
v four hours. The method was- discov
ered by Dr. H. Q Gore of the De
partment of Agriculture at Washing
.ton and was publicly announced for
the first time by Prof. Pugsley, who
learned of it in Washington last week.
- ' Use Electric Fan,
"The use of the electric fan Is the
vonderful discovery. Observing the
rapidity with which a road dries when
the wind is blowing. Dr. Gore applied
the principle to evaporating fruit It
worked successfully, doing away with
the old process which takes so long
and. leaves the fruit discolored and
without its flavor."
Hre lit the nroaefiS?
The fruit or vegetable Is pared and
sliced, then put in . h'ght, wooden
(rays which have steel wire screen
iiQttoms and ends. Stack up the trays,
then setLthe electric fan at one end
and letrthe 'current of air blow
through the trays, which are about
three feet long, twelve to eighteen
inches wide and two incites deep.
When dry place in paraffin cans.
. which cost only K cent for quart
Before cooking, put In cold water
for two hours or more. The vege
table will swell up and look just like
the fresh vegetable, haying retained
its color and flavor.
For farms or country towns where
there is no electricity. Prof. Pugsley
recommends community drying plants
with the fans run by gasoline power.
This method is being used in the
Lincoln school and will be demon
strated in the canning school the uni
versity will send to Omaha soon.
