"Pig Knitters" Knit for Themselves.
A "pig knitter." That's what they
call women in the east who spend
countless hours knitting sweaters for
themselves in all ,the rainbow hues,
instead of making sweaters and socks
to keep our boyS in the trenches warm
"It isn't only that they are selfish
ly using their time, but they are creat
ing a shortage of wool," is the point
emphasized by an Omaha woman who
has two sons enlisted in the service.
"The price of hanks of yarn is
phenomenal. The increased demand
for yarn to make sweaters, socks,
helmets and writlets lor our men
is great enough to keep all man
ufacturers busy without having to
supply the demand of women who
want a different cojored sweater to
match each costume. '
One well known woman in Omaha
is said to possess ten vari-colored
Mrs. A. W. Jefferts, in charge of
the local Red Cross knitting unit,
needs hundreds of additional women to
help with the work. Yarn may be
procured at Red Cross headquarters in
the court !;ouse.
One million pounds of knitting wool
has been purchased by the Red Cross
in Washington, D. C. If all this wool
were stretched out it would reach 800,
000 miles, or around the earth thirty

To Have Three Comfort
stations Located Downtown
The city council directed the City
Planning commission to prepare
plans and specifications for three pub

The city has for this purpose $50,000
received from sale or bonds autho
rized by the last legislature.

Of the Liberty Bond Drive

A campaign to enlist 2,000 Omaha
women in the Women's Benefit As
sociation of the Maccabees will be
started next month by Miss Agnes
Boyer of North Platte, who is in
Omaha returning from the silver an
niversary of the founding of the order
in Port Huron, Michigan
At this meeting, where Miss Boyer
was delegate from Nebraska and
which was attended by representa
tives from all over the world, the wo
men of the association unanimously
voted to purchase $200,000 worth of
In addition a fund of $200,000 was
voted, this to be used in aiding, sons
of the women members of the order
who come back from the war dis
abled. This will aid in bringing them
back to usefulness, in teaching them
new trades and professions, so they
can once again enter industrial life.
Have Reserve Fund.
The women of the order, of whom
9,000 met at Port Huron last week,
made no empty promises in these
matters, for in a bank of that city the
order has a reserve fund of $12,000,
000, showing that women make good
business managers. Miss Bina West
ctartffrt the Marrahees twentv-five
years ago, borrowing from the same
bank $150 tor ottice expenses.
"This was the hrst order in rnc
world to grant insurance to women
and is the only, one now in existence
not admitting men," said Miss Boyer.
"No man over the age of 2 years is
admitted. The women do all the
business. They are far superior to
men in this line, we believe. They
have foresight and when a readjust
ment is necessary it is found they
have foreseen it and planned for "it,
so it does not put them in debt. Miss
West, who organized and built up the
association, receives a salary of $6,000
a year. Not long ago a New York
insurance company offered her $25,000
a year to come to them,, but she re
fused to leave the Maccabees.
"At the rally last week in Port
Huron many distinguished guests
were present. President Wilson
wired us his congratulations. The
meeting was also an international
convention of the orders A $200,000
headquarters building was dedicated
in Port Huron."

members next year Miss Boyer will
have the assistance of Miss Eva Mc

When Milady Goes Shopping
"Oh, the tears we waste and the years we waste ;
and the work of our head and hand," all because
we do not understand the simple way of shopping.

."Oh, the. years that we waste, and
the tears that we waste,
And the work of our head and hand,

And never could understand."
Kipling's verse hits many a mark.
"Dear, me! I have saved up a list
of things to buy, but I have dreaded
the shopping ordeal so much that I
haven't even decided on a day for
the task," is a remark we hear hun
dreds of times a year.
Why do women 'dread shopping
so much? It is a part of the busi
ness of home-making I
They dread it because, nine cases
out of ten, shopping is not done
intelligently. Too many women are
unacquainted with prices, materials,
quality and rules. They are fussed
up almost immediately on entering
a store because they ask what
seems to them an entirely reason
able concession, but positively un
reasonable to the merchant.
Women want to, in fact they
must, make their dollars work dur
ing thesje days of high cost of liv
ing.. Most f them are trying, but
their efforts are misdirected. There
seems to be no medium between
shopper and merchant to bring
them together. The years we waste
and the tears we waste, and the
work of our head and hand, is all
because we do not understand each
Shopping, buying of all kinds, and
stretching the dollars would be
much easier if we understood val
ues, deliveries, scheduled advances
in prices; where the bargains are
being offered and why.
Merchants are lying awake nights
figuring on ways and means to fa
cilitate shopping in their stores,
efficient methods of serving their
customers, and displaying their
goods. They want to please every
body, and, above all, they want
every customer satisfied. Yet they
often miss the mark.
Shoppers long for certain condi
tions and changes to make buying
easier, but they never think of sug
gesting it to the merchant.
Let us waste no more tears and
years trying to stretch the dollar
satisfactorly. and, at the same time,
keep our mental poise. Let us learn
the secret and understand ch
other. Wipe out all ill-feeling! Mer
chants are not all brutes, cheats,
tyrants I Women are not all un
reasonable, fickle, irresponsible,
senseless creatures! Everybody is
more or less all right well meant
but often woefully directed.

Tests for Making Jelly: House
wives are told how to determine what
fruit juices are suitable for making
jelly and how failures and waste of
sugar may be prevented by the bu
reau of chemistry. "
To determine accurately the amount
of sugar to be used one should put
a spoonful of juice in u glass and add
an equal amount of 95 per cent grain
alcohol, mixing the two by gentle
shaking. Then slowly pour the con
tents from the glass, noticing at the
same time how the pectin the sub
stance that makes fruit jellify is pre
cipitated. If it is bound in one lump a cup of
sugar is needed for each cup of juice.
If, however, there are several lumps,
only three-fourths as much sugar as
juice is wanted. .
When no lump appears and the
pectin is merely 'precipitated, a half
cup, or less, of sugar to a cup of
juice should be the proportion.
If the test fails to cause precipita
tion, it indicates that the juice is un
suitable for jelly, and must be com
bined with some other juice that is
rich in pectin, such as apple juice.

Use of Soda with Sour Milk and Mo
lasses. In these days of saving the very
last particle of any food that we have
inJthe house, the small family may
find extra milk left occasionally,
which can only be used as sour milk.
We realize that in the days of our
arrandmothers sour milk and soda
were valued as making especially good
baked food products; we of this day
are very much more dependent on
sweet milk and baking powder. It is
generally conceded, however, that a
sour milk cooky, cake or biscuit is
reallv suDerior in duality. Certain it
lis that in using sour milk and soda,
one is substituting sona tor DaKtng
powder, a saving in money; also a less
quantity of flour will turn out an
equal quantity of finished product,
though naturally the food value is
slightly less if less flour js used. I
have also heard the claim that less
shortening is necessary in baking with
sour milk, but I have not tested out
that statement personally.
The first necessary information is
the quantity of soda to use for each
cup of sour milk.
One-half teaspoon of, soda to each
cup of sour milk is the maximum that
should be used, and the soda should
always be sifted with the flour just as
baking powder is, When soda and
sour milk are mixed some action
takes place immediately and much gas
is lost; hence a large original quantity
is needed. When soda is dissojved in
hot water less gas is evolved and lost,
but the extra work is unnecessary.
For cooking purposes sour milk
should be forty-eight hours old and
clabbered. Until the clabber stage is
reached the milk should be kept cov
ered in a warm room; after that stage,
it should be kept in a cool place till
To Change Recipe.
In changing recipes from sweet
milk to sour milk two further bits of
knowledge are necessary. One tea
spoon of soda is the equivalent of four
teaspoons of baking powder; and one
cup of flour requires two teaspoons of
baking powder unless many eggs are
used to help in the leavening.
To illustrate all these directions let
us take an ordinary recipe and change
it from sweet milk to sour. A plain
muffin recipe calls for the following
i c. flour 1 c. milk
4 t. baking powder. 1 egg.
t. nail. T. fat, melted.
I T. sugar.
The first change to be made is in
the milk, substituting sour for sweet.
Then, using the general rule, one-half
teaspoon of soda is needed and that
amount of Soda is equivalent to two
teasnonns of hakincr nowder. But two
cups of flour require four teaspoons of
oaKtng powuer, ana since wc nave
added the . equivalent of oily two,
two teaspoons of baking, piowder
should b .used in addition.: !The last
change to be made is in the quantity
of flour, Since sour milk is of itself
thick, about one-third cup of frour (on
a two-cup measurement) can be omit
ted, The practical method for an ex
perienced housewife to follow is to
sift dry ingredients with a part of the
flour; then add more flour sparingly,
till the batter is of the usual consist
ency. We must admit that we are not
strictly logical, for when we scant the
flour less baking powder is necessary,
but the excess baking powder is of
slight consequence and' avoids mathe
Molasses Varies, .
The use of molasses and soda can
not be computed as accurately as sour
milk and soda. Different kinds of mo
lasses vary in acidity, and the same
kind of molasses left exposed to the
air will vary from its original char
acter. Old-fashioned molasses was
much more acid than our modern

The Food Administrator Writes Us:
"The use of baking powder breads made of corn and other coarse flours instead of
patent wheat flour is recommended by the Conservation Division of the Food
Administration. The wheat needed for export is thus conserved, and at the same
time healthful food for our own people is provided. The circulation of recipes pro
viding for these uses would be of assistance in carrying out our plans."
