By SIGRID ARNE (AP Feature Service Writer) WASHINGTON — Remember those times during the World war when the family sat down a macaroni and cheese so the x>rk and beef could be shipped 'over there?" Remember how your favorite restaurant hid the sugar bowls and slipped you t»ne lump of sugar for your coffee? When you ripped up the lawn and flowers and planted "Victory gardens" of vegetables? American housewives seemed worth of created by the S. 8. Bear of Oakland 'A giant snow cruiser, an airplane which can ride pick-a-back on the cruiser and many other new mechanical aids will be utilized by Admiral Richard E. Byrd on his third Antarctic exploration expedition. The Diesel-engined Bear of Oakland and the government ship, North %tar, are to carry the expedition into the Antarctic regions.j^The pick-a-back plane has a cruising range of better than' 1,200 milei and can carry a crew of five. The plane will use the cruiser as a base and if the cruiser becomes snow or ice-bound the plane can come to the rescue of its crew.* The^cruiser_is 55 feet.long and Veighs 37 tons. & Cost was J150.000/ " " ' ~~iT, Food Surplus to Prevent Meatless Day s Recurrence imands—and in the peak year of 1920 we were supplying Europe 50 percent of her food. Our farms have never shrunk to remember only too well the 20- to the pre-1914 level. It should t>e easierthls. time to expand acreage to meet peak demands. To Keep Prices Down There's our own jealously guarded food plan, if worst comes to worst. It's part of the war plan which has been worked on since 1920. It includes a system of rationing that could be put into effect immediately. But it's such an first week of September this P 11 ^ 6 ??* 1 ^ ? dea *;hat offlcials year. Some of them stood j hush-hush it. And anyway four and five deep at the groc- the on . lv .rationing in 1914-18 ers demanding 10- and pound sacks of sugar. But says the Department of Agriculture, this country has a huge sugar surplus. There's no need for a price rise. Moreover there are surpluses of most major foods. That's different from 1914., Then the war broke on an unsuspecting world. This is a tailor-made war, in the making for three years or more— right down to food supplies. Our Own Carry-Overs The world has huge surpluses of wheat and sugar, smaller ones in other foods, and the warring countries are supposed to have laid up big reserves. Our food carry-overs for next year include: 300 million bushels of wheat and 250 million pounds of food fats. There are other changes since 1914, and several "If's." There's the diet change. Back in '14 we were meat-and- potato people. Now food chemists have taught us so much about vitamiins and calories that our diet spreads over a wider range of foods. The whole world won't be demanding meat at once. There's the change in farming, in 1914-18 the farmers jumped the size and number of farms to meet expected de- and trucks, parts, accessories and tires for replacement, as well as service equipment. was voluntary. There's the new war resources board, already at work, HOLLYWOOD SIGHTS and SOUNDS (By ROBBIN COONS) HOLLYWOOD—The United States Senate chamber has been invaded only once by a motion picture camera. Some years ago a writer of educational books decided to make some educational films showing government at work. He received permission to "set up" in the sacred precincts. That was the end as well as the beginning of the chamber's appearances on film. And yet Frank Capra and crew spent four weeks there, shooting to hearts' content, right here in Hollywood. At first the Senate sequences were scheduled for 10 days. The set—for "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington"—revealed expanding possibilities or else Columbia wanted more of its money's worth from the expenditure of Senate chamber and all things thereunto appertaining. Capra himself, before the picture began, took a still man to Washington and photographed the chamber minutely. * * # The result was as nearly as authentic reproduction as denizens of Capitol Hill could wish. It was not perfect, although photographically it is. Example of cheating: The moulding around the top of the -chamber is duplicated, actually, at the top of the balcony. It is, actually, done in slight relief. In the set, because the camera didn't care, that balcony molding -was done in—sh—h!—stencil. In this painstaking accurate' reproduction of the Senate andj its seats, the men who filled | them as the movie's senators! were chosen with equal pains—| to insure no resemblance toi actual characters living or dead.j ner, who is one of Capra's favorite characters; Grant Mitchell, benign, mild-looking, dignified. **** ; Selecting page boys was simpler. Preston thumbed through available actors, ages 12 to 14, said: Practically any of these •will do." He was more particular about the news men—insisted on substantial, dignified types, as far as possible from the typical movie reporter who drinks and swears his way to journalistic fame. Lest seating arrangements indicate identities by inference, those have been changed to resemble not the least the line-up in the present Congress.

Unable to Walk, She Goes Hunting FORT COLLINS, Colo. —W— Mrs. Ralph Detwiler, victim, of infantile paralysis, h a s n' t walked since she was six years old but she did what a lot of hunters failed to do this fall—• she brought home a buck. Determined to go deer hunting, she had her husband carry her to a rock near a path through a forest northwest of Fort Collins. "I kept very quiet and saw a lot of does before a buck finally came into sight," she said. "I waited until he was within 75 yards and then fired." It was a three-pointer. Girls, You Should Learn How to Cook NORMAN, Okla. —(/I')— A girl who can cook has a better chance to earn money to finance a college education than a girl who is a trained stenographer, sa'ys Miss Helen Holbrook, Y.W.C.A. secretary at the University of Oklahoma. Community sewing rooms have given older women a chance to earn money by sewing, instead of in domestic service, she says. And, at the same time, there appears to be an over-supply of trained typists. The average housewife, it has been found, spends 70 percent of her time in the kitchen. to soften the economic shock that war always brings, even to peaceful countries. That has a food division to meet profiteering. • Remember how the old food administration affected prices? Take flour. In the last year it cost $8.75 a barrel. By May, 1917, it was up to $17. Then the food administration was organized. By February, 1918, flour dropped to $10.50 a barrel. There's the change in European buying of war supplies. England and France have .pooled their purchasing. In 1914 they competed with each other in American markets and drove prices up by their haggling. Of course, there are the "If's." If we slapped on a strict embargo of all supplies to warring nations, prices might drop. If we removed restrictions, the munitions industry might j boom, men go back to work, | and prices rise—as they always do in a prosperity cycle. But anyway there aren't any "Meatless Thursday" jitters around Washington. annvmnmatplv •fcs'i nnn r\n trans appioximateiy $-»»,uuo on nans- forewords always say.
