BRIDE U finds short vcut to success in s food Hope Henderson became a housekeeper the day that she became a bride. To do the job, quickly and well, she had to use modern, highly nutritious foods, chief among which was a quick-cooking macaroni. Hope tried out several kinds and veri fied this highly important fact: All macaroni save one only is made with water. This one exception is the New Milk Macaroni, a vitalized food containing important proteins, minerals and vitamins such as are found also in 9ggs, meats, nuts and whole wheat. Ordinary macaroni, good as it is, lacks these vital elements. Only the New Milk Macaroni has them. , , Thousands of women have found relief from drudgery by the regular and frequent use of this quick-cooking New Milk Macaroni. Richness and delicacy of flavor in a food of highest nutritional value, and it cooks in five to eight minutes. Look for the Quaker on the yellow wrapper. The Quaker.

TTe is kind and generous, and I am sure that he Is fle-roted to me and appreciates all that I do for him, for I am a good wife and a good TEi1 housekeeper. But, Miss Dix. my heart breaks because he never pets we were marrie J nobody could have been more affectionate and demonstrative that he was to me. I spend days and night on my knees praying God to bring about a change In him so that he will show me again that he loves me, but my prayers are never answered. He Just goes along the same old way. Good to me. but never saying to me the things that I would give my life to hear. And I think it will kill me. MRS. C. J. B. Answer: My dear Mrs. C. 3. B., when I get letters like yours and hundreds of other women write me Tirtnally the same thing I wonder which are the moat stupid and blunderlng'la their relation to earh other, husbands or wires. I wonder that men, as a class, never seem to realise that women put more stress oa words than they do on deeds. The average wife will believe her husband lores her if he tells her so and pays her a few compliments, even If . he beats and starves her, and she will doubt his affection If he Is dnmh about It, although ho works his Angers to the bone to prove his devotion. And I wonder why a man who will do everything else on earth tomake a woman happy, who will toll for her and sacrifice for her and go hungry and cold for her. won't make love to her, although he Is bound to know that the one thing on earth that would make her perfectly blissful Is Just to have him make a fuss oer her and tell her that she is the most wonderful creature on earth and that she gets more beautiful every day and that he loves her better all the time. I wonder that men don't realise thst marriage doesn't cure a woman of her craving for admiration or for affection or for soft talk. Rather it Intensifies it, and the htufbend-who refuses toflll this need of his wife's soul starves her Just as much as If he failed to provide her with food for her body. Most of all I wonder that men do not realise that a few kind words to their wives will make them eat out of their hands, and that the easiest way to -work a woman is Just by soft-soaping her. And then I wonder shout women. I marvel at their genius for making themselves miserable about nothing. I am filled with amase-ment at the trouble they take to And the crumpled rose leaf under their forty mattresses of ease. Certainly the woman who haa a husband who is good and kind and generous to her and whose affection for her Is daily proved In a thousand different ways, has mighty little to complain of. She Is going a. loaf distance out of her way to hunt for trouble when she can make herself wretched over the fact that he isn't a glib lovemaker, and Isn't always telling her that her eyes are like stars and her mouth a rosebud. And I marvel at the lark of common sense that prevents a woman from ever understanding her husband and seeing the plain, practical business man no more considers It necessary to tell his wife every day how much he loves her than he does to go about announcing to all he meets that he Is an honest man or that he always pays his debts. Chairman Reports Campaign Organization Best on Record. .Organization of the women's army ftr the 1B27 Community Fund campaign is "coming along 100 per cent efficient," Mrs. Russell Fortune, general chairman, reported at a meeting of the women's executive committee yesterday at the Propylaeum. Reports were made by the four division chairmen. "Never before has the women's army been so well started this far In advance of the campaign," Mrs. Fortune paid. Mirs Ijeona Kopplnno, south division chairman, reported that all her district chairmen had been selected. DI8C18S RALLY PLANS. , Plans were discussed for the opening rally to be held about the middle of October for all women workers in the campaign. Last year more than three hundred women attended the rally and this year an even larger attendance Is expected. It was decided to divide the north division, under Mrs. It. Harry Miller and Mrs. Nathan P. Graham, Into twelve districts Instead of the usual seven. This will mean more subchalrmen, captains and workers. Other members of the women's executive committee are Mrs. Miller, Mrs. Graham, Mrs. Charles K. Rush, Mrs. James H. Dunne., Miss, I.eona Kopplnno, Mrs. Wolf Sussman, Mrs. John II. Phillips, Mrs. Thomas R. Kackley, Mrs. William H. Coleman, Mrs. Irwin Hertermann, Mrs. P. C. Reilly and Mrs. Walter S. Greenough. All Interests of the Home rty Agnes M'Cnlloch Raana. He thinks that his devotion, his care, his work, speak for themselves and that words are superfluous beside them. He says it with beefsteaks and new hats and limousines. And she goes around, poor foolish soul, beating on her breast and walling out her misery to high heaven because he has quit quoting poetry to her. Bo, two people who love each other make each other miserable over a few words one wants said and the other won't say. Can you beat It? DOROTHY DIX. DEAR MISS DIX I have been married for eleven and a half years, am 28 years old and have two little boys whom I love very dearly. My husband brings his pay envelope home to me and tells me that he loves me, but he fever shows me any affection or takes me to any place of amusement I am love-starved at home. There Is a man, a friend of my husband's, who hsa been In love with me for ten years and I with him. Ha Is married, too, but he is as hungry for affection as I am. We jneet occasionally and he kisses me and caresses me and says to me the tender things that every woman loves to hear, and we are passionately happy when we are together. Now, do you consider It wrong for us to love each other and Is there any harm in our little stolen interviews, our' little auto trips and dinners? Can we go on being just lovers? Please tell us what to do, as we have decided to go by your decision. i BROWN EYES. MENU FOR SATt RDAT. BREAKFAST. Grape Poached Kggs on Toast Coffee LUNCHEON OR SUFFER. Assorted Sandwiches Fruit Lemonade or Hot Tea DINNER Roast Beef to lie Sliced Cold on Sunday Concordia Potatoes Baked Summer - Squash Chocolate Loaf Cake Bllced Peaches Answer: You know very well. Brown Eyes, that what yon are doing Is very wrong and that no good can possibly come of It. You are being disloyal to your husITand and breaking your wedding vows In spirit, if not in fart. Even if your husband Isn't afTertlonate and you are hungry for love, It doesn't give yon the right to steal It, And think of your children. You want to train them up Into being fine, honorable men who will go straight. How can you do that If you are crooked yourself? How can you teach them to keep their ldeala unamlrched If you have lowered yours and trailed them In the dust? Every boy has a right to think of his mother as the embodiment of all that Is pure and exalted in womanhood, hat he can't do that If his mother has been carrying on Intrigues with a married man and meeting him on the sly. You don't want your boys to he ashamed of you, to have to hliinh when your name is mentioned, as they will if you continue on your present course, because no woman can escape being gossiped about who has a lover. And what happiness do you expect to get out of this affair? Do vou and this man think that any peace and happiness will come of a love that' Is built on treachery; that goes In trembling fear of being found out and that Is bound to result in the end in the breaking up of two homes and the orphaning of two sets of children? My advice to yon both I to tarn back while there Is still time and put this guilty love out of yourhearts. DOROTHY DIX. DEAR MISS DIX I am engaged to a young man who is a verv fine chnp We get along well together, like the same things and are real pals. But the girls that I work with are always raving over their men friends, and as I have no Inclination to grow hysterical over mine I wonder if I love him as much as I ought to, to marry him. For I can not gush over him nor get thrills every time he looks at me. I even see his faults. Do you think I am in love or not? - TCZZLED. Answer: You must, of course, be the Judge of the state of your affections I can not possibly diagnose your case from these few symptoms, but because vou do not have hot and cold flushes and tremble at the sound of a footstep Is no indication that you are not In love with the young man. It only shows that you are not overly emotional. Don't he discouraged by your Inability to thrill. The thrillers are the quickest to get over their love affairs. Nor Is it any sign that you don't love the young man because you see his little weaknesses. The supreme test of love Is when you can say: "With all thy faults, I love thee still." DOROTHY DIX.

The Ingredients are: One cupful of sugar, two eggs, four tablespoonfuls of cocoa, one-half cupful of lard, one-half teaspoonful of baking powder, one and. one-half cup- fuls of sour milk, three cupfuls of flour and one teaspoonful of soda. The lard and sucar are creamed together, then the eggs and cocoa are added, and the mixture is beaten until smooth.
