: Immediate NeedWheat
t The loyal food conserver these days
is the woman who is ready to adjust
ner iooa program to the immediate
" need. At the present time the call
for wheat is sounded throughout the
land. The 50-50 rule is all right, but
it is not enough to meet the demand
for wheat. Therefore the problem is
not to make Victory bread, or 50-50
cake, but to substitute even up to
1UU per cent This may "sound like a
hardship to those of us who are iust
feeling friendly to the half and half
substitution; but to the woman who
can afford to use the more expensive
flours, doing without wheat is not an

vvc are urgea to aaopt a new atti
tude toward cereal foods. Just be
cause a product is not exactly like a
wheat food is no reason why we
should feel that the new result is a
failure. To be sure, certain character
istics will always mark the successful
baked food for instance, hot bread
or cake should never be soggy and
should always be fairly light and ten
der. But if it be granular instead of
spongy there is no reason to con
"Many of these problems must be
worked out by the nidividual house
wife by experiment, and in this work
she must adopt new standards, and
not be content to determine only how
closely the result of experiment re
sembles the wheat flour product, but
also whether it is in itself edible and
attractive without regard to former
Use of Cereals.
In the Chicago Tribune of Sunday,
Miss Eddington makes some very
-sage remarks concerning the use of
the various cereals. She emphasizes
the fact that merely following recipes
will never make one mistress of the
new cookery. The thing to learn is
the characteristics of the new flours,
and draw your own conclusions from
your general facts. For instance, it
is. a recognized fact that cornstarch
adds a light dry quajity to cakes a
quality similar to that obtained with
the finest pastry flour.
, One of my students said: "Why
couldn't you use cornstarch with rye
flour to make cake?" She had grasped
.he qualities of the two flours the
.' heaviness of the rye and the lightness
of the cornstarch. I may add that I
tried out her idea and it worked. Miss
Eddington suggests that the cereals
. other than wheat take up more water
A new schedule of hours has been
announced for the public workshop
at 315 South Seventeenth street. The
shop will be open every day from
Monday to Friday from 1 to 5 p. m.,
but will be closed all day Saturday.
The night classes will meet Tuesdays,
Thursdays and Fridays from 7 to 8:30.

The latest development of this serv

trained Red Cross worker, whose
special business will be to look after
the comfort of the men. These repre

more liquid should be used. She also
says that increasing the amount of
egg will help a batter to stretch and
hold the stretched form.
Successful Wheatless Recipes.
The recipes discussed below have
all been tested out by me personally
or I have personal knowledge that the
combinations suggested are abso
For bread making, rye may be used
entirely alone. For steamed bread,
half rye and half cornmeal is a good
P'or biscuit, half rye and half corn
flour gives excellent results.
For muffins, all barley, all rye, half
corn flour and half barley, half bar
ley and half oatmeal, are all possible.
When using rolled oats, they should
be scalded with the hot liquid, or
g; und through the food chopper.
Half rye and half cornmeal is also
For pastrj half corn flour and half
barley is good. .
For gingerbread, any of the muffin
substitutes are satisfactory. ,
For cookies, I think all the muffin
substitutes would be good. I know
100 per cent barley flour in a spice
cooky gives excellent results.
Flavor With Spices.
For plain cake, flavored with spices
or lemon juice and rind, the muffin
substitutes may be used. To make a
lighter cake, use one-fourth corn
starch with the rye or barley. Rice
flour may also be used in part with
the rye or barley.
1 realize the above list does not
nearly exhaust the possibilities of
other than wheat flours, but it is a
list that I cn personally vouch for.
In . all meat cookery where' flour is
required, use barley or rye without
any hesitation. For thickening
white sauce, one housewife suggests
potato flour if the price is not pro
hibitive, another likes rice flour or
corn flour. The corn flour is more
apt to lump than wheat flour, but
gives good results if one is careful.

Free Potatoes to Save
An interesting bread-sadng sugges

chain of hotels operated by a company
has established the practice of serv
ing baked potatoes at the tables to
guests free of charge with dishes of
which they form a suitable accom
paniment, provided no bread is eaten.
As bread has always been a free item
in English restaurants, this substitu
tion of potatoes, according to the
London Caterer, entails no change in
