and changed it until it could .'uok
Mr. Hoover himself square m the
facet Cake has three counts aganst
it it used to call for butter, it takes
much sugar, and it calls in general
for white flour. The recipe origin lly
read as follows: .

. Fat Substitution. ,
The fat substitution was an 'asy
problem, f6r fat substitute ' fa's . in
cooking, while new to the rpa'oi 'ty
of people, have been in use fo- sev
eral years. You may use any ot the
oleomargarines or nut margarines to
be found on the market, using an 'qtal
amount; or you may use any si the
vegetable fats or oils, using on-ffth
less. The reason for using less of
the vegetable fats is that thev are
nearly 100 per cent fat, while butter
and margarine is only about 85 per
cent 'fat. The cooking oils make ex
cellent cakes, though they canr.ot be
handled quite so easily by the n'?ce.
Suet may be used in part or en'.'rely
if the cake is spiced. Otherwise its
flavor is not quite so pleasant in
cake. . ' ' v ' ,.
If one wants to be especially con
serving of all fats, it is possible to re
duce the amount of fat used to, one
third cup, even if margarine is Wed,
and tc increase the milk to two-th!rds
cup. For the fat and milk are related
to each other in proportions as the
one goes up, ht other goes dowA
. i Sugar Substitution.
Sirup may be substituted up to one
half "the amount with excellent re
sults. The only point one needs' to
remember is, that for each cup of ?iuip
used omi one-fourth cup , of liquid.
One-fourth proportion of sirup is
scarcely noticeable, and one-hal pro
portion js very pleasant The rfikw
back to the use of sirup is its cst.

Of course plain cake in war time is
unfrosted. it may be baked as cup
cakes,, loaf cake, or layer cake, put
together with jelly or . jam. - In all
cases, the top should go unfrosted. So
far I have not been able to find satisfactory-
icings made entirely, of sirups
or honey. Apropos of frostings, the
patriotic housewife should remembei
that it is. just as disloyal to buy
frosted cake oi cookies, as it is to
make the froiting at home. Incident
ally one should remember also that
frosted dainties will be on the mar
ket just as long as you and I buy
them and no longer 1 .
" Flour Substitutes.
. We tried sut many of the substitute
flours in the plain cake. As I remem
ber it, the list included corn flour,
white corn tfieal, rice flour, barley
flour, potato flour, cornstarch and
rolled ;oats, ground fine in the food
chopper The potato flour and corn
starch were used half and half, and
produced excellent results, though
some 'of the girls objected to' the fla
vor of the cornstarch. Again we find
the practical" drawback, to these substi
tutes, the cost. It may be that potato
flour Vill cost less, if we have new
mills, but at present it is clearly in
the class with luxuries. However, it
is not greatly higher than Jhe best
grade, of pastry flours, and it does
make tfJccelhint cake.
The other substitutes were tried in
one-fourth and one-third proportions.
In the case tf cornmeal and oatmeal,
more than one-fourth made a some
what -crumblv cake, though the flavor
was excellent. The barley makes a
good cake if one disregards color,
which, of course, is entirely masked
in a chocolate or. spice cake. But our
problem was to see what could be
done without any high flavors and col
ors to mask changes.
As a result of our experimenting, a
recipe for plain cake might read now:

was the sort of office boy in whom
cartoonists delight. Collars and fin
gernails left almost as much to be

two-thirds'of the things he was asked
to do. Robbie was an unattractive
urchin, whom everybody shunned or
snubbed. Then Jimmie Hale came to
work in our place as stenographer to
the chief. Jimmie was an immaculate
soul, smiling, friendly and always
well groomed.
One dav he took1 Robbie with him
for 'a soda fountain funch of, hot to

that the youngster made a point of re
membering whatever his idol'asked of
him and pretty soon he got the re

Robbie began imitating his idol's
manner of speech of dress, and sud
denly he turned into a clean litMe

in himself. And it was because some
one treated him like a human being in

Go Back to Simple
life to Win War
If we had not grown so far away
from the ideal that built this nation
we would find saving food a much
easier task. ' ; f -
"From . a little group of frugal,
thrifty settlers, huddled together on
the barren shore of, Massachusetts,
we have grown into a mighty nation,
rich, luxury loving, and spendthrift.
We have r.ct been satisfied with the
simple life of our ancestors. While
they were content to make a whole
dinner of Indian pudding, we mtjst
have at least three courses fdr dinner.
We demand elaborately prepared
food. We have cultivated a taste for
fancy brands and imported products.
We turn up cur noses at fdod grown
in our own locality and select instead
that transpoited to u's from a dis
tance. No wonder foreigners traveling
here have gone back , to their own
countries' filled with tales of our
thoughtless extravagance and waste 1
But now we have a mighty task to
do. ' We must win this war if it takes
our last ouitce of strength. In self
defense, we, must. save. -food to feed
the people who are helping to fight
our fight ' "Even if you can afford to
live extravagantly, your country can
not afford to have you. Be content
wjth simple fare. Buy native, food,
when it is in season, and as far as
possible buy the products ,that are
grown in your own locality.
Go back to the simple life, be con
tent with simple food, simple pleas
ures, simple clothes. Work hard,
pray hard, play hard. Work, eat, rec
reate and sleep.; Do it all courage
ously, we nave a victory to win.

"The production of food is going to
be one of the most crucialoccupations
connected with the war, announces
Mrs. Fred Deweese of Dawson, chair
man of the food production, depart
ment, woman's committee, Council oi
Defense, in a message to the women
producers, of Nebraska. "If you can

Some of the things which Mrs. De

fairly level and well drained, clear it
of old vinesplants and weeds and
burn them, and treat with well rotted
manure. Plan your garden on paper,

ground by using early and late vege
