Omaha have lots of fun with the

with him until the army really
needs him. He has passed all the
requirements for an army horse.
Mrs. Daugherty, who spends

rides daily. She uses a regular
army saddle and an officer's bridle.
Her habit is of khaki cloth.

Stiffs Realize Dream of Years;
In Thick of New York Election
(By Atolatod Frw.)
New York, March 5. Those wo
men of New York who reside in the
four congressional districts in which
special elections are. being held today
realized their dream of years when
they cast their first votes.
The elections are in the Seventh
and Eighth districts of Brooklyn, the
Twenty-first in Manhattan and the
Twenty-second in the tsronx. Aaaea
to the historic significance of the day
to the women was the fact that the
actual democratic majority in the
house of representatives in the face
of the present technical republican
majority of one hinged on the out
come. . -
Political leaders frankly confessed
they were puzzled as to just what,
effect the new factor in politics will
have in determining the result in each
of the districts. The total registra
tion in the four districts is 172,061, of
which 35,195 are women.
In addition to the republican and
democratic candidates, the socialists
have nominees in ach district, while
in the Twenty-firs district a woman.
Mrs. Marie Colvin, is a candidate of
the prohibition party.
The greatest interest in the cam
paign has centered in the fight in the
Twenty-first district, normally repub
lican territory. The Rev. Reverdy C
Ransom, a negro clergyman, whose
independent petition was thrown out
by the supreme court, has appealed
to hia followers to write his name on
their ballots. Ransom has attacked
the reoublican nominee. John A,
Bolles. The democratic nominee is
Jerome F. Donovan.

An out-of-town raider asks for a
discussion of war breads made with
the substitute flours, because that is
a problem with which all housewives
who bake their own biead are strug
gling. We have waked up to the fact
that we must use the substitute flours.
When we buy pound for pound of
substitute with wheat flour the situ
ation comes very close home to us.
I hope there are very few women as
selfish and as blind as the one who
said to her grocer, "I've never used
anything but white flour in my life
and I don't intend to begin now. Send
me whatever I have to get, and I'll
pitch it all out the back door as soon
as it comes." Surely she could not
have heard those powerful speakers
who were with us last week and who
brought the message of conservation
straight home to us. After we heard
Dr. Wilbur say so earnestly that when
we kept back the necessary tooos
the wheat and the pork especially
we were "spilling the blood of our
own boys," all the desire for white
bread was killed.
It seems to me that it is almost
safe to say that any housewife can
turn out successful war bread, using
the standard recipe that she has al
ways used. There are a few special
recipes, but most war bread is like
ordinary bread. It would be a little
difficult for a woman who haan t any
idea how much liquid er flour she
used," as one housewife informed me
recently, to substitute a definite per
cent of other than wheat flour. But,
even if you do not measure flour any
more definitely than by the sieve tun,
you can get an idea of quanitity to
substitute. The new Victory bread
must contain at least 20 per cent sub
stitute, but any patriotic family ought
to use one-third to one-half substi
tute flour. Barley flour may be used
very successfully up to 50 per cent;
rolled oats un to 40 per cent; corn
flour uo to 33 1-3 per cent, and rye
flour in any quantity up to 100 per
cent The dough for rye bread should
be stiffer than for white. However,
rye flour is not a substitute for wheat
now, though it may be purchased in
any quantity without buying an equal
amount of other foodstuffs. Graham
and whole wheat flours are not sub
stitutes at all; they are merely better
to use than white flour from the con
servation standpoint, because 100
pounds of wheat produces more gra
ham flour than white flour.
Rolled Oats Bread.
In making rolled oats bread the
liquid should be scalded or boiled and
poured over the rolled oats.- Allow
Vi cups of rolled oats and 2 cups
wheat flour to 1 cup liquid." This
amount makes one loaf. The general
rule for one loaf of bread is 3 cups
flour to 1 cup liquid, but a little more
nf the oats is reauired.
In making rice bread with cooked
rice Jt ia well to remember thai the
rice contains a good deal of liquid.
For one loaf allow three-fourtha of a
cup of liquid to two cups of cooked
rice and two cups of flour. If this
Bmount of flour does not make a
fairly stiff dough it will be necessary
to add more flour.
The directions above, while very
vague, have been 'given especially for
the experienced bread maker. It ia
always easier ' for an old-stager to
adapt her own recipes than to trouble
with new ones. All the facts have
been tried out successfully in my own
high school classes. For the woman
who is making bread for the first

To Make Your Morning Marketing Easy
WHEN you visit a retail store, make your purchase of
Armour's meats, fish, vegetables, fruits, condiments . or
other perfectly prepared foods, and have your selection placed
in the basket to carry home, do you ever stop to consider how
this easy marketing has been made possible for you?
LOOK into It For yon should realize the opera
tion of the systematic plan which offers you
this range of choice and value.
Here are over a score of packing plants located
in the centers of production constantly gathering
and preparing the country's choicest yield
Carrying Foods to You
HERE are refrigerator cars on every main line
and branch spur with icing stations to care for
them, steadily transporting these foods to over four
hundred branch houses each a huge, local ice-box
in the midst of a congested population district
Here is a great foreign investmentplants in the
Argentine, Brazil, New Zealand, Canada relieving
the drain on this country's production.
Here is a national selling organization working,
day in, day out to equalize distribution and keep
your food supply constant laboring to hold pro
ducers markets always open that there may be
neither shortage nor surplus and that prices may
hold at true value levels.
The important thing for yon to remember ts
that without such a far-flung system continually at
work for. you by day and night, your supply of '
foods would bev neither constant nor at existing
prices. You would be paying very much more.
And you would be denied the privilege of national
selection forced to live on the foods produced in
your own locality.
Feeding the Allies
INDEED, it is in no small measure due to systems (
of handling foods such as that operated by Ar
mour and Company that we as a nation are able '
to. extend to our Allies the food-aid we are giving
Think, if you can, of any other people in the war
