state, she claimed that corn was not
used as generally as it should be for focd

great demand for it from the European

it can be used as a food will be demon
strated in a corn kitchen, which the
United States government will provide
for at the Paris exposition. At the close
of Mrs. MacMurphy's talk, Mrs. Sawyer
introduced a resolution, recommending

for Nebraska in the corn kitchen at
Paris. The resolution, amended to
secure the signature of the state presi
