Of the Bread Line
"Over the top!" this must be the
battTecry in the "kitchen of every
American home today, as well as the
battlecry on the fields of Europe.
It means that the time of talking
about food winning this war and how
we must save it, is past.
"Over the topi" Get into the real
fight of saving food! Face the enemy,
Starvation, that is invading the coun
tries of our associates in' this war,
despite the efforts of their brave wo
men to check its advance.
These women have put up a splen
did, fight. They knew that their men
were putting all their strength into
beating back tly enemy and they,
their wives, sisters, mothers' and
sweethearts, must face the great
struggle against starvation alone.
Women whose nearest approach -to
farm labor before the war was to
train their rose vines to grow over
their porches and pick fresh sweet
peas to their drawing room tables
are doing the heavy work of a farm
i laborer today. They are plowing,
raising crops, feedingi and tending
live stock, keeping cattle barns and
farm machinery in repair.
Run Food Factories.
Besides the farming, the women.
are practically running the food tzci
tories, keeping them going day and
night as long they can obtain the
raw food products with which to
Down to the last child these peo
ple have learned something that very
few people here in America hav as
yet learned. It is this: the strength
of the first line trench depends on the
strength of the bread line. As long
. as the women can hold the bread line
under the shock of war, the men can
hold the trenches. When the wo
men fail, the men fail.
In their hour of need, the women
of Europe are calling to you, women
of America. - "Over the top!" Into
fight with us against hunger!"
If we are to help them, we must
save food as never before. Where we
' have had one wheatless day in our
wfek, we must put two in now or
better still three or four! We must
remember that every ounce of food
saved is just that much food sent to
our soldiers and the allies.

division on women's war work com

DAUGHTERS OF AMERICAN REVOLUTION
DO RED CROSS WORK IN ARMY BUILDING
If being in the proper atmosphere
has anything to do with results,
Daughters of the American Revolu
tion Red Cross auxiliary j owes its
success to the fact that the women
work in the army building.,
With ' traditionary gallantry, army
men have surrounded the "Daugh
ters" with every comfort. The latest
bit of co-operation is the establish
ment of the coziest little tea room
and kitchenette where the industrious
ones can have luncheon without even
taking off their white veils and
aprons. ' !
As the noon day whistles blow, the
gauze and muslin is abandoned for
the tea kettle and the sandwiches.
One hour is allotted for the noonday
The tea room's opening is almost
co-incident with the first anniversary
of the workers. Just about a year
ago J. J. O'Conner, head of the cen
tral division of the Red Cross, sent
two S. O. S. messages to the Daugh
ters of the American Revolution, ad
vising them to begin at once on war
relief work. 1 '
Mrs. Walter Selby was chosen
chairman. She immediately organized
the first independent Red Cross
auxiliary in Omaha. They began
daily work in two small rooms. To
day they are established in a room
large enough to accommodate 400
women and Jiave to their credit 35,
000 surgical supplies and hospital
Perhaps such a splendid record is
in a measure due to the inspiring
talks which the army men frequently
give to the assembled workers. The
interest in. these war relief workers is
a personal mater with the officers, a

When Colonel Grant urges the
bandage makers to further endeavor
he is addressing his wife and three
daughters, ' the Misses Dorothy,
Helen and Mary Grant.
The wives of both Major Frith and
Captain Faringly are included among
the army women who devote many
hours at this Red Cross center. Any
woman is welcome whether she can
point to distinguished warrior an
cestors or not.
"Willingness to wojk is the only
requisite," said Mrs. Selby. "There is
no fee charged as there was in the
beginning of our work."
The following Daughters of the
American Revolution members act
as chairmen: Monday, Mesdames

Why Not Use Popcorn
Instead of Candy?
Use popcorn. Give candy a rest.
Fopcorn belongs to the romantic
period of the open fire and the home
made Christmas of our Pilgrim fath
ers. The United States food adminis
tration has asked us ,to save sugar.
Of course we will, and one of the
ways we can do it is by eating less
candy. Popcorn makes an adequate
The number of people who serve
it is growing less and less. Yet a dish
of hot buttered or candied popcorn
is invariably greeted with enthusiasm.
Try it the next time your friends
drop in for the evening.
For 10 cents a package of popcorn
can be bought which will go further
than three pounds of candy. Popcorn
can be served with milk as a supper
dish and never fails to call forth ap
plause. The parched kernels when
ground like coffee make a very good
breakfast food with cream or top
In preparing buttered popcorn, re
member that a very little butter goes
a long way.
Have you tried sugared popcorn?
A syrup is made, by boiling together
two teacups of sugar and one teacup
of water. Boil until the syrup strings.
Then pour over six quarts of freshly
pooped corn and stir well.
Have you forgotten the delicious
old fashioned popcorn ball? This is
the way they are made:
Si pints syrup (mo-4 tablespoon butter
lansos or mapU). 1 taaapoon vinegar.
I cup sugar.
Cook until the syrup hardens when
dropped into cold water. Remove to
back of stove and add one-half tea
spoonful of soda dissolved in a table
spoon of hot water and then pour the
hot syrup over four quarts ot freshly
popped corn, stirring till each kernel
is well coated, when it can be molded
into balls or into any desired form.
Popcorn can be colored by dipping
into beet juice or any fruit juice.

Buy It With Thought
To buy food with thought means o buy
it with knowledge of food values. There
is a great ditterence between foods, ac
cording to their actual food value in relation to cost.
Many foods with a fow price per pound are so defi
cient in nutritive properties as to be really expensive.
Puritan Hams and Bacon are foods with high caloric
content. There is comparatively little waste in them
practically no waste at all in their preparation.
