SNOW Huron Jnurnil Hum Einmlci E4Hnr WERE YOU RATIONAL with your first four weeks of sugar rationing T This rationing of sweets may. be the best thing that has rome to American cooks in a long time. Nutritionists claim we eat too much sugar anyway. Gourmets say we ought to learn not to mask fine flavors with oversweetness. We should learn to enjoy fruits in their own natural flavor. We conducted an experiment in our own kitchen with the beginning of sugar rationing. The results were interesting, and we thought you might like to know about them, We started off with the regular allotment, 1 pound per person for two weeks. Since there are three In the family, we had three pounds from May 7 to May 17. 4 We used the sugar for the foods we had always been used to using It for but "snitched" on some recipes. By. careful measuring we found that one cup equalled 16 tablespoonfula but by using a knife to level off these spoons we found we could get 22 tablespoonfula of sugar from one cup. Thus we "skimped" In one way, having 6 tablespoonfula left over from each cup. Too, we found that many recipes calling for 1-3 to 1 cup of sugar could be reduced in various amounts and the family didn't know the difference. We used sugar on cereal each morning for breakfast and for tea at the evening meal. It's surprising how little is needed for either of these. We found that we had used far more sugar than was necessary previously, covering the flavor of the cereal with too much sweetness. A substitute was used only in cup cakes which we baked and did not ice. They might have been made with cornalrup Icing which many find so tasty. At the end of the first two weeks we had consumed the same food which we usually enjoyed and had 3-4 cup sugar left. We had made enough tapioca pudding for six servings and enough ice cream for twelve servings to help on the next rationing period. Our conclusion was "the rationing allotment for the average family is sufficient." Sugar is a food and should be so treated. We advise against the use of saccharin as a regular substitute for sweetening. It is a coal tar derivative and has little food value. Saccharin is three to five times as sweet aa sugar. It is better to use sugar substitutes that we know have food value wnd whose reaction on the body has been proven. 7 7 , Aw- :: 4iiltlll;l Fraternities Tap Students rLEDOTNG Greek-letter groups Is a popular pastime among the students at Akron university.
