"Man," he said, 'if I could tell you what things arc going to be like a year from now—or even tomorrow—I wouldn't be here. I'd-I'd-" He looked out of the broad window and across the frostbitten Mall for a moment. "As a matter of fact," he said, "there are certain things we can say in attempting to draw a broad picture of what a year of war will bring as far as food, clothing and shoes and all the smaller things of life are concerned. Plenty to Eat "I suppose most of us are wondering whether we'll have enough to eat I don't think we need to worry abou rationing of any item of food aside from sugar. "One thing I'll tell you for sure— we won't have the experience of the first World War, when houscwivei bought penny candy for coffee be cause there was no sugar. We'd cu off the candy manufacturers first," (A Department of Agriculture official pointed to the interrelation o various food supplies. If more corn were diverted to sugar manufacture, he said, the necessary starch supply might be affected.) Then the production official added: "We're certainly going to have to make up our minds to using a lot of substitute products and doing without some of the imported things—like tea, spices and tapioca. There's plenty of wheat, of course, even for fine pastry flour. "Substitutions probably will hit us hardest in the field of fats and oils. We've lost our supply of palm and coconut oils (olive oil practically dried up long ago) and will have to use such homegrown products as peanut, cottonseed and soybean oils. "There are a few domeastic articles that will disappear from the grocer's shelves almost entirely because of Army and Navy purchases. For example, medium red salmon. The government is taking the entire catch, and much of the tuna catch as well." Says a Department of Agriculture spokesman: "Our soaps may be very greatly affected. The American public demands a highly-lathering soap, although this has nothing at all to do with soap's cleansing properties. Highly- lathering soap requires large quantities of palm oil, and I don't know whether we'll be able to give it to them or not." The Department is moving fast in the battle of fats and oils. The number of livestock on farms is about 5 per cent greater than a year ago, and the Department is pushing for a still greater increase, and a consequent rise in the animal fat supply. In addition, 1942 soybean and peanut production goals call for an increase of 500,000,000 pounds of oil. One big food reserve, under normal conditions, is the ocean. The Fish and Wildlife Service of the Interior Department figures the fish catch could probably be increased "almost immediately" to 4,628,000,000 pounds and later tb 6,200,000,000 pounds, compared to 4,443,000,000 in 1939. Outside of substitutions, the greatest change we're likely to see in our groceries is the way they're packaged. Tin is to be replaced wherever pos- ible, by glass and cardboard. Where ans can't be eliminated, the approximately 150 shapes and sizes are to be :ut perhaps by two thirds. Brinjf Your Own Poke To forestall a paper shortage, shoppers probably will be asked to take .heir own baskets to the store. The average breadwinner's worry, lowever, is: How much is food gong to cost? That—and the cost of ilmost everything else—depends on .he administration of price control, but Secretary Wickard says: "There is little- excuse for any sub- stantial increase in the price of agricultural commodities at this time, and we will do everything in our power to check speculative increases."

We,theWomen Grandma Will Grin at This— Parlor Dates Arc Back Again By RUTH M1LLETT Junior doesn't get the family car any more—except on special occas- sions—because the tires and the car are going to have to last for no one knows how long. That fact is going to change the dating habits of Young Miss and Mr. America. The "parlor" is going to come back into its own as the place where young folks get acquainted and do their romancing. Miss and Mr. America—used to spending their evenings on the highways and parked on side roads—may not like the situation so well, feeling it a bit crowded and confining. But Mama and Papa are going to love it. No more waiting up for Daughter or sleeping with one ear awake for her key in the latch. No more arguing every night she has a date over what time she is to get home. Unless she goes to a corner movie or to a local "jelly joint" for a coke and dancing, she'll probably be entertaining her young man right in the living room—the way Grandma used to do. Since it is such a break for them, parents—especially the parents of daughters—ought to cooperate and help the young folks make the change from automobile to parlor. To begin with, it's going to be more important than ever that a girl have a place to entertain her young man —or young men. It didn't matter much if a girl lived in a crowded apartment with no privacy at all so long as she put her coat on as soon as her date was inside the front door and spent the evening away from home. Drafting the Living Room But now a girl is going to need the living room—cleared of the family— when she has a date. And she is going to care more than how the living room looks. u, Mania and Papa, if ought to see that she has some way to entertain. If she has a victrola and some dance records and the family isn't too concerned with the condition of the floors in the living room she can invite the gang in for an evening's fun once in a while. And if Mama will see that there is always something to eat in the ice box, Daughter's popularity will practically he assured. Any kind of game equipment that can be provided—like a ping pong table—will help out, too, and should be added to the household. All a girl used to need for dating was some pretty clothes. Now she is going to need a place in which to entertain—and it's important that she have it. NIGHT OUGHS YOUR CHILD'S coughing at night —caused by throat "tickle" or irritation, mouth breathing, or a cold—can often be prevented by rubbing throat and chest with Vicks VapoRub at bedtime.
