The United States food administration sends out the following Christmas
suggestions and menus. v . ;
Because we are trying to save wheat to send to our soldiers and to those
associated with us in this war, andbecause the Christmas dinner serves so
Rreat a variety of food that a plate of bread is really unnecessary, it is urged
that no bread, not even war bread, be served as a regular item on the menu
for the Christmas dinner. J

"Grandma" McArdle Will
Give Family Christmas
Dinner to Fif ty Persons
IFor a number of years a looked
ffcr pleasure 1ias been the annual Mc
Ardle Christmas dinner which is al
ways held at "Grandma" McArdle1
home on West Dodge street, Benson,
where "the dinner, for about 50 chil
dren, grandchildren and great grand
children will be had on next Tuesday
Mr. Robert McArdle, wko is the onl
son who lives at a distance, is now
here with Mrs. McArdle and littl
daughter, Bobbette, from Cheyenne
"Grandma" McArdle, who is 74
years old, is still hale and hearty.
She raised 12 children, 11 of;wlienj
are now'living on the old home where
sh still lives and where the happy
gathering will take place.. .
Washington, Dec. 22. If :you
serve the old-time Christmas- dinner,
consisting of turkey, cranberries,
goose and vegetables, you Vill make
a big hit with the United States food
administration. These are the very
things the administration wants the
American public to eat while they
conserve wheat, red meats, fats and
other needed war foods.
Incidentally, this Christmas falls on
meatless Tuesday the day when no
red meats should be eaten.
- War plum" pudding, according to
the war economy cook book, issued
by the food administration, is made
"One cup dried-bread crumbs,
cup corn syrup, 1 cup seeded raisins,
1 cup currants, Vi cup finely jcut cit
ron, I tablespoon candied lemon peel,
1 teaspooirful salt, J4 teaspoon cin
araon, J4 teaspoon cloves, V teaspoon
ginger, cup fruit juice, 1 cup flour.
"Mix in the order given and add
enough cold water to make, a stiff
mixture. Turn into a well oiled pud
ding mold oi info two smaller molds,
filling the' . piolds only two-thirds
full. Cover tightly and"tIace in boil
ing water and boil six to seven hours.
Remove the- pudding from the mold
when cold. Reheat before serving.
Serve with pudding sauce."

Comparative Cost and "
Food Value of Fifty
For the information of housewives
,vho wish accurate information on rel
itive costs in planning economical
md at the same time nutritious meals,
:he rood administration has issued a
:able showing the comparative" cost
ind food values of 50 foods.
Bread. is taken as the standard of
comparison, and the cost per pound
md the relative cost per hundred ca
tories of the other materials is shown.
The prices given are averages of those
in 25 places throughout the., country
on August 1. The table shows that
12 articles are cheaper than bread on
- the basis of, calories obtained' for the
money, twc are of equal value and
36 higher. Corn meal, notwithstand
.ng its present high prices, continues
to give the most food value for the
money. Broiler chickens stand at the
foot of the list.
It would be impossible for a fam
ily to keep in health if it were fed ex
clusively on the fo6ds in theOower
-"part of the' table. Their advice is that
the housewife continue to prepare the
usual meal of varied diet, and utilize
this table as a guide in making com
binations that will save money 'and
at the same time be nutritious. For
instance, canned tornatoes, compared
with bread, are a very expensive food.
This should not lead to total elimina
tion of tomatoes, but they should be
employed as Continental peoples use
HienV as a flavoring and garnishing
for such "a food, say as macaroni, near
the other end of he list.
The table follows: v '
Chop together" equal parts of
stoned raisinsSlates and figs and add
(after weighing) nuts equal in weight
to the whole. The nuts may be mixed,
according to convenience and taste,
as one part of,black7and white wal
nuts, pecans, almonds, peanuts, hazel
or Bjazil nuts. In general,' nuts
grown in the locality should be used.
Mix thoroughly and pack in a mold
for slicing. y s-

ITTLE intimate holiday parties
will be the rule this year. Big
expensive affairs are taboo by
eral public feeling as well as
individual inclination, in these days
of II. C- L. Atter all, though, there
is much more fun in jolly little infor
mal gatherings of friends and at the
Christmas night supper or Christina
eve celebration around a table like
this the "flow of wit , and reason"
should be unrestrained, for the host
ess will not be worrying about the ex
pense and her guests will be de
lighted with the dainty service.
The table cover, napkins and doilies,
of white crepe paper, with Christmas
design in colors, together with the
plates which bear a similar Christmas
design, come. in sets called "Holiday
Lunch Sets." One can Unpurchased
at almost any stationery or depart
ment store.- The Santa Claus figures
standing behind the plate are really
bon-bon boxes. The candle shades
are of white crepe paper with designs
cut from a paper napkin pasted on
th ejn. The favor pie in the center can
be omitted, but it is not hard to make,
and fajpr pies can create a lot of fun
as well as save the cost pi a floral
centerpiece. , '
This pie has .for a foundation a'
cone ofrecn mat stock, mounted on
a wire standard. Small favors are
wrapped in green tissue paper, tied to
branches oh artificial holly and then
glued 'to the foundation. Other
branches of holly, stuck in holes in
the mat stock cone, make the treefull
This would also make a good deco
ration for the children's "extra" table
so often necessary at large family

Cranberries for Xmas
United States food administra
tion, .public information division,
Recent statements in the press
spread belief that the United States
have seemingly led toy the wide
food administration has opposed
the ust'of cranberries and is ad
vising the use of other fruits in
stead in making the Thanksgiving
and Christmas sauces. Such is not
the case. The food administration
is not urging the use of any other
fruit in preference to the cran
berry in making sauce or jelly; It
has suggested that as. an emer
gency measure on account of the
pressure for sugar, preserves or
jellies that were put 4ip during the
summer, might be used in making
The food administration further
points out that corn syrup affords
a substitute for sugar in cooking
cranberries with only slight im-
I pairment of flavor. Two-thirds
sugar ana one-third corn syrup
may be used for the jelly or a
slightly larger proportion of corn
syrup for the sauce. ,
