TUESDAY, JUNE 8, 1943 BLYTHEVfLLB '(ARK.?. COURIER NV.WS' Shortening Shortage Brings Bread Battle BY (IA1.NOK .MAIUXJX •NEA rood and Markets Kdil'or You might not think of blseulls fis being unpatriotic—unless they were leaden lobs of dough capable of sabotaging war-workers' efficiency, However, Dr. Kussel M. Wilder, chief of the civilian Requirements Division, Food Disillbution Administration, snys that all biscuits "re unpatriotic because fats lire so dlrely needed for explosives; therefore we should stick to breads' requiring less .shortening. For lovers of hot breads and home-made pics, the Burciui of Human Nutrition and Home Ecu- noatlcs, Department of Agriculture, Is perfecting fat-saving recipes, Including a patriotic I'le Crust and .Biscuits 'Wartime Style. To prove wliat they can do lo save fats and ut the same time feed Ihc Million, tlie bilking industry lias announced Hint at least 20 pel- cent more bakery goods are beliii produced this year witli Ihe same amount of shortening us used last year. On the other liimd, the millers of the counlry are pointing with nliirm to the drop in home baking since rationing of fat began. Sales of family-type flour have dropped 30 per cent since rationing, accord- ng to the Department of Agriculture., Some flour distributors report drop of l>0 per ccul in certain areas and an overall drop of 45 per cent. •SITUATION CltlTIOAJ,, MILLKItS SAV During Ihe Inst war, all baked goods had to contain 20 per cent other than wheat flour.

Miller's Jiorlening and taking powder nian- ifaclurers are trying to convince Washington that the rationing of 'nts Jias cut clraslically . Into Ihe ise of our non-rationed wheat sur- ilu.s. They regard Ihe drop in home baking as a national, emergency. As a quick solution, the Hour milling industry wants shortening unit certificates packed with family flour. They suggest that tlie rate should be 1 unit for 5 jraunds of family flour, 2 units-for 10 pounds, 6 units for 25 pounds. A unit certificate would gel 1-2 pound of shortening. While some interests are bal- tllng for more liberal rationing of fats in order to increase consumption of our surplus wheat, commercial bakers, many food exerts and government officials responsible for our war economy say it isn't necessary. Home-made biscuits and cake may have gone into a slump for the duration, but commercial bakers are supplying enough baked goods to make up tlie loss and no one need worry about using our wheat surplus, according to Pelei G. Pirrie editor of the influential Bakers' Weekly. The rationing of shortening Is lot the only cause of the decrease n home baking. The time required for more than 18,000,000 Victory Gardens, for home canning •uid and for volunteer defense work s one reason. The increasing number of women employed in war industries is another. The rationing of cooking fuel in sonic areas affects home baking, too. The OPA reports that since 1934 tticre has been a definite trend toward increased commercial baking and a dropping off in home baking. While there has been a further decrease in flour consumption since rationing, OPA figures at the moment do not indicate a serious con- A FEW EASILY GROWN ANNUALS WILL .KKP THE HOUSE SUPPLIED WITH DECORATIVE 60UOUETS ALL /THROUGH TH&.

I'KKl'AKHI) M1XTUHES IN DEMAND Sales of baking mixes hnve increased greatly since rationing. These are combinations of lal and flour and other ingredients, ready to mix up and bake al home in double quick time. The War Food Administration and the OPA have made available lo manufacturers of those baking mixes, as well as lo commercial bakeries, fats and oils In amounts which approximate 100 per cent of 19'I2 use. Commercial bakers are studying ways to make their allotment of fat (100 per cent the same period in 1942) go further. Not only can they sell all Hie-bread, am 1 , cake they can make, bill Ihe demand lor cake in defense areas has jumped 35 per cent. This spectacular increase is due to the popularity of cake in war worker's lunch boxes. from lack of 8100D-IRON Then try Lydin PInkham's TABLETS-OTIC of the bost nml quickest, homo \vays In simple nneinla to help build xip rctl blOOd tO GET MORE STHENGTH.

Suppose you demanded a combination of (lowers which \vould germinate in five days (in warm weather) and flower in thirty to forly. Hero arc some you might get: . . . Zinnias, ageralum, alyssum, can. dylufl, ccntaureas, clarkia, cyno- glossum, annual sunflowers, morning glories, annual pinks, leplo- sync, linaria, marigolds, poppies. > Such a list might be very rnuch enlarged by including varieties which will germinate in a week or ten days. But it would be interesting to see what sort of garden could be made of just a few flower families, seeking interest by using different colors and types. Take zinnias for example—they could hardly 1 be omitted from a garden of annuals. There are tho small-flowered singles, the small lilliput doubles, the intcrmediato or "pumila" lypc and the giant flow- cred varieties. They give ari abundance of pink, red, orange and yellow varieties wilh a few lavenders. A whole border might be planted jnoslly fo zinnias, provided one used enough agcratum, conlaurea and cynoglossum to introduce tho needed blue tones; I There is no reason to confine your Bowing to the quickest germinating subjects. AH annuals can be sown nt this time and will bear flowers by mid-July. They grow much faster in warm weather and their flowers are finest in the last half of the season, usually improving until frost arrives, WASTE FATS Are Urgently Needed In The Manufacture of Munitions! \ Mrs. Housewife: 1.
