Select'Foods Carefully For Sake Of Health In adjusting to food shortages and point rationing, Mississippi County honieniakprs should keep In' the back of.the inlnd, but not (oo far back, what the right food docs, Miss Cora 1 Leo Coleman, county home demonstration agent, advised this week; The right food, she pointed out, builds niul repairs, the body; keeps It In good running order; gives energy for work and other activities; helps prolong the prime of life; and gives n basis for good health. The needs of the body for the right food, however, Miss Cora Lee Coleman said, will have to be met during wartime with fewer kinds of food. Actually, the Iwdy Itself won't mind, or object, to getting along on fewer foods. All it asks Is that those foods tie selected so carefully that the body will get every- iiiK it actually needs. But catering to appetites: That's a different story, according lo tlie home demonstration agent. Many food fancies/food likes and dlsllke,s, she declared, will have to go Into discard and eating take on a more serious nature. In many instances it will be for the better. Adjustments can bo made In dietary habits to incel the changing food situation as we'll as the nutritional '.iceds of the tody. A' few- pointers In making adjustments are: MILK—Milk is the hardest item to "adjust." It Is practically impossible to find another group of foods .to take over Its duties. Don't dypr- look the'fact that milk has varied forms: Fluid (sweet, sour,'skim", buttermilk), dried, evaporated, ch'eesc— If one form Isn't available, inaybe another is. Vilamln C rich foods include, besides lomaloes, oranges, and grapefruit, raw cabbage; salad greens; other raw vegetables such as radishes, green and red peppers! onions, corrals, turnips; fresh fruits in .season such as strawberries, ^vatcr- m'elori, pineapple; "potatoes cooked in their jackets, ' MEAT—Poultry, full, eggs, sometimes dried .beans or peas. A|1 arc rnnln dish foods rich fti\ protein. In wartime don't double In protein food any more than need' be. Cheese on apple pip isirt just for flavor'now. It's a part of tlie day's protein supply. Hard-cooked eggs on "potato salnd aren't n garnish, they're part of the meal. , . - CEREALS AND BREAD—Bread is FRIDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1944 The Place of Christian In the ^Nation's HV WILLIAM E.' GILUOV, I).' I). In British plans for 'postwar education, great stress Is being laid upon religion and.Ihe provision by law for religious Instruction In the schools under public control.- Such provision \vould not be possible here in America, where the separation lit church and state ts a wcll-es- taWlslied and, as most of us believe, a wise principle. But In our own way we must face what legislators as well as churchmen''have faced in Great Britain, viz. the obvious failure of education atone, or of education as we have had it, to save the world from disaster' by building into Individuals and society the moral restraints and values (hat are the necessary foundations of good citizenship, the proper evaluation of huinan life and the recognition of the rights of others. In the world in general we have li,i<) a long course of so-called "secular" education. Colleges that . ein.illy were of religious foundation, and that arose through the vision of Chrlstnin men and women, have eagerly understressed (lie secular. There has been a widely held explicit or Implicit assumption Dial If we nc(|Uirecl enough knowledge,. and particularly scientific knowledge, Ihe ftitiirc welfare, and progress of mankind would follow. From all of that we have had rude, and terrible awakening. Germany.-which was the Mecca of earnest students .seeking . tlie ultl-' mate things in philosophy anil POINTERS • By Hoy I/.

Perhaps the blind'are unable to guide the Mind, but a lot of them are trying to do so. It Is amazliijr how big our ovvn faults appear when we sec them in other people.

The religious community, 'though less culpable than the 'schools, has not beei) free from blame. It is rather appalling to consider the number of people educated in schools under religious control, and with religious instruction, who have been no" better than the worst of those, whose 'edu:ation lias been wholly, secular. Why Is that? Is it not because so much so-called religions instruction has been formal hi its nature hnvlng.morc to do with thcorv and doctrine; than with moral fact and sound moral teaching?
