FHday, October 12, 1034 HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS A.&P. Reviews 75 Years hi Groceries October Is Diamond Anniversary of National Store System A housewives' revolution would be caused by n return to the good old days, declares the A&P Kitchen, reviewing iho.se "good old dnys" on tho r.ccnsion of the 75th anniversary of llip Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company, celebrated during the month of October. Throwing the spotlight of interest on the progress in feeding u notion during the lust 75 years, the A&P Kitchen found these to be some of (he difficulties our ffranimaothers had to face in feeding their fnmilics. If Grandmother wonted to be sure cf .serving Grandfather a steaming •hot cup of freshly roasted coffee for brraltfa.st in the ISStVs nnd- ISSft's, she IKK' lo roast it aiul grind it herself. That's what everyone had to do then. 'For breakfast cereals, all Grnndmoth- .er had to do was to buy a basket of • \vhent, and cook a quart or so on the back of the slove for two days until it was soft enough tq chew. In those days, away from the sea•const the only seafood obtainable was saltod. It came in two forms, dried salt fish und pickled salt fish. The dried salt fish were just darkly it you had" en6tigh Hrhc to soak thetn lor a day, nnd if you had enough time to change the water often. Soap was not something thtit Grandmother could just order half a dozen bars of at the local store. She saved her wood ashes nnd grease drippings for months and rendered them into a soft jelly-like mass then known as, soap. Flavoring extracts did not come in ncnt bottles in the IflGfl's. Grandmother had to buy a vinella bean, or carefully save h»r orange nnd lemon peel for months nnd soak them in brandy, and In the fhcH time of a month she had vanilla extinct or orange or lemon extract. Hominy was another fiiVoritp of the Into 1800's. For hominy a bottle cf strong lye was kept on the pantry shelf. Tliis bottle of \ye, plus an iron kettle full of water, plus some shelled corn, plus n dny's soaking, plus repeated washings, plus cooking, produced hominy. Simple, wasn't it? Mont, however, was different. If Grandmother bought fresh meat she got it fresh. Very fresh. It wos not aged in a refrigerator as good as meat is now. It was alive in, the morning nnd Grandmother bought It thnt day, or the next, because there were mighty few refrigerators even after the packers in Chicago learned Farmall Showboat Here Monday Pictured nhove-fe the FarmnU Showboat which will cruise Into the Vert of Hupc promptly »t I o'clock Monday afternoon to dock in front of the South Arkansas Implement Company store. In addition to being a traveling display of form machinery, tilt Showboat is rapidly cruising its way to a non-Mop tractor endurance record.

However, when the Farmall Show- beat cruises into the city Monday afternoon, all that will be changed and the Hcmpstead county metropolis will become, for at least one day, the Port of Hope. Lailinj; along smoothly at a speed of 10 knots per hour, pennants flying and hand music throbbing, the Showboat •will steum into the city promptly at 1 o'clock to dock in front of the South Arkansas Implement Company, across the street from the offices of the Hope Star. Heralded by the deep-throated sobbing cf a.river packet whistle und the mellow lolling of a ship's bell and ;,hicuded by the smoke from its tall twin slacks, the strangest vessel ever to cast anchor in the county will parade through the business urea before throwing a landing line and dropping the gangplank for the afternoon. Thu Showboat: comes lo Hope as a goodwill ship for the tcntertainment and education of the farmers of the Hope :le territory and carries a display cf seasonable and modern farm machines on its decks. The craft is a vepliciv of the boats which plied the river trade years ago and is so complete in detail that spectators can even hear "steam" escaping from the valves. It will be brought here under the sponsorship of the Central Arkansas Implement Dealers' Association, of which -organization Ladd Miller, local McCormick-Deering dealer, is a charter member. During the boat's slay here, Captain Monroe Rooks of. Little Rock will provide an interesting program through the loud speaker for farmers and their families. In speaking of the Showboat, Mr. Miller cautioned a reporter not to expect too much of the vessel in cruising a water route. If it were run into the river it would sink just as quickly as any other piece of steel. It is built, he said, around an all-steel 2t-toc.t wagon gear which is powered by a Farmall-12 tractor mounted on Goodyear 'Airwheel tires to permit of travel on, the highways. The display Food Prices Show Drop Since April Meat Makes Largest Decline From Peak of Last Spring WASHINGTON—(/P)-nie first drop since April in tho cost of stocking the family larder was reported Friday by the Labor Department for the two weeks ended September 2H. The same amount of food that cost $1 at retail in 1913 cost $1.16 during those two weeks, compared with $1.07 a year ago and ?1 two years ago. In September, 1929, the same amount cost $1.60. Meats showed the greatest decline —l.fi per cent—of any of the food groups when compared with the previous two weeks. Dairy products also dropped. Cereals went up. The group including coffee, tea, sugar and the like dropped slightly. When prices in individual cities were compared with those of two years ago, increases ranged from 8.3 per cent in Chicago to 25.5 per cent in Detroit. More than 7,000 road accidents which resulted in 7,202 deaths were analyzed by British police, who found that only 219 of the dead were drivers of motor cars, while 3,517 were 1,324 bicyclists and.

The thowboat comes here from 1'ort Smith and it will leave on Tuesday morning for Texarkana. Mr. Miller stated that every farmer in the Hope trade territory is invited to see it while it is here. ' rumored that in 1871 an ice plant was built in New Orleans, from which ice- was even imported into the North. The great change in the food buying habits of the nation came in the 1890's. Cities were growing. The tempo of life quickened. Housewives no longer wanted to spend hours and even in .some cases days preparing a single dish or a meal. In response to this demand changes in food .selling habits appeared rapidly. Fully automatic can-making machinery first appeared in 1885. Thereafter canned foods became an important part of the grocery business. Breakfast cereals were invented that came ready to serve. Oats for oatmeal first, then gradually th:- myriad wheat and corn cereals that one .sees today. Rector's restaurant which opened in Chicago in the 1880's proved to a disbelieving 1 world that oysters packed in ice could survive a trip to Chicago. Home soap- making disappeared overnight before a superior manufactured product. Every one of the 200-odd A&P stores began lo curry extracts in response to demands of the customers. By 1901 the changes progressed far enough for the Ladies' Home Journal to write, "In these days you can buy almost everything partly or wholly cooked." However, the development ul' ready-to-eat foods, that so excited the ladies of 1901 was hardly the beginning. Growth, since that time, of food preparing technique plus growth cf well organized distribution systems not only made prepared foods available to everyone, but also fresh fruits and vegetables and good meats available the year round at low cost, and made the modern meal a matter of minutes not hours.
