Time Food Problems
Miss lone Duffy of the Vant Sant
school will do her bit for Uncle Sam
by offering a course in war time food
problems to Omaha housewives and
heads of public institutions free of
charge. Miss Irma Gross; domestic
science instructor at the Central High
school and home economic contributor
to The Bee, will give ninety-minute
lecturer to the classes which will
meet twice a week at the Van Vant
One course will be given on Tues
days and Thursdays from 10:30 to 12
a. m. and the other on Wednesdays
' and Fridays from 10:30 to 12.
The school was first planned as a
live-day course with a tuition fee of
25 cents a lecture. "Owing to the fact
that there were no other agencies in
the city during the summer for the
scientific study of food values, and
the- immediate need of co-operation
with Herbert Hoover's food conser
vation campaign, I felt too patriotic
to eliminate some people who might
not come," said Miss Duffy. "I jnly
asl; that those who attend will be
willing to impart their knowledge to
others," she added.
All reservations must be made by
