System Should Be Used When Planning Meals By ANN K1NGSUSY Have you ever noticed how much more interesting a task becomes when you go about it according to some system? Using your head to save your heels, your mother probably called it. But thinking- things out instead of going on in slipshod manner can turn any task from drudgery into an interesting, even absorbing undertaking. This is especially true of this "job" of homemaking. One of its phases, the selection and preparation of food, can be either a stumbling-block, or a real pleasure. A good general knowledge of food values and of the combinations which go to make a balanced diet is nec- ccssary but fortunately this is easily acquired. "Plan your meals a.bout the meat course" is a good general rule to follow. The reason is that meat contains the best quality protein, that food element which builds body tissues and repairs the wear and tear of our daily activities. Meat also contains calories to provide energy, as well as other necessary food elements. To accompany meat, or the main protein dish, the balanced meal contains a starchy food, such as potatoes or rice, a green vegetable, and a fresh vegetable or fruit may appear in the form of a salad. Or fruit may be used as dessert. Suggestions for Menus. Here are a few suggestions for food combinations to guide you in planning your daily menus. With roast beef, serve brown potatoes and as a vegetable creamed celery, string' beans or corn. With pot-roast, use spaghetti as your starchy food, with turnips, carrots or string beans for the vegetable. With beef cooked in water, serve dumplings or wide-cut noodles, with boiled cabbage or creamed onions. With roast veal, boiled rice or noodles, spinach, green beans, peas or asparagus. With sweetbreads. French-fried potatoes, and green peas or mushrooms. With roast pork, brown potatoes or sweet potatoes, and choose as a vegetable green string beans, turnips, cabbage or cauliflower. With pork chops, creamed or mashed potatoes, and tomatoes or onions, celery, or carrots. Apple sauce, baked apples or fried apple rings go well as a fruit with any pork dish. Leg of lamb, brown potatoes and green peas, are a favorite combination, but spinach, asparagus or cauliflower are other vegetables which go well with lamb. In selecting- the starchy and green vegetables to accompany mca.t, consider the ease with which they may he cooked together, or may be combined in one dish. Here are a few recipes for dishes in which mea.t and vegetables are served in delicious combinations. Lamb Pie With Mashed Potato Border. 2 cups diced cooked lamb 1 cup carrot balls 8-10 small white onions 1 green pepper, sliced '~ cup diced celery 1 pimento, diced.

Children Often Bothered When Wearing Classes By GAKK1* C. MYERS, PH. D. Head Department Parent Education Cleveland College, Western Keserve University. "Dear Dr. Myers: My 10 year old son had some trouble with his eyes last summer and the doctor fitted him with glasses to be worn for reading and study. When school began Ralph took his glasses with him but was reluctant about it. After several days 1 asked him if he wore them. He grinned sheepishly and admitted he hud not, because the children would laugh. He could so easily hare told me h- was wearing them that I appreciated his truthfulness; still I want him to wear them. Can you suggest how this is to be accomplished?" My reply in part: Your problem is not easy, especially since he has failed to wear them for some time. I am glad you sec the danger of tempting him to lie. First try to find out whether he was laughed at by his schoolmates or his home playmates or both. By indirect, clever means you may be able to win a favorable audience with the leader among his playmates, who might be induced to prevail on the other children never to make fun of your boy again for wearing his glasses, but rather to help Ralph to want to wear them. Teacher Can Help. Also see the teacher who, when Ralph is absent, will, we hope, take the other children into her confidence about your boy and his glasses and win their co-operation. She and they together might easily prevail upon your son to wear his glasses "so he could do his school work better and easier." Suppose you work out a plan with Ralph whereby you will keep a record of the times you find him. without prompting, wearing his glasses when reading' or studying at home, with the understanding that when ten or twenty, say, of such favorable records had accumulated you would buy him something he would greatly like. In this way you would help associate the wearing of the glasses with pleasure rather than discomfort. Use Reward System. You might carry this reward scheme farther by having him ask his teacher to record the days when he wears them at school and to send you a report. Then you could reward the successes and ignore the failures. Such a problem might be prevented in Bother children by setting the stage favorably for the child when he first gets his glasses. As a rule, the damage is done within a day or two after the child puts the glasses on. If all the members of the family and his playmates and schoolmates are led to receive him favorably when he appears the first time with his glasses, there hardly will be a problem. A similar problem arises with the child whose teeth are being straightened, to get him to be regular in the wearing of the rubber bands. Also the means of prevention or correction of the problem is similar. ·!· HAOEN-LURA CRYSTAL LAKE--Harvey Hagen. son of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Hagen. living just north of Crystal Lake, was married to Edith Lura of Thompson by the Rev. Mr. Hin- derlic, Lutheran pastor of Forest City. After March 1 they will live I on a farm now occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Emery Enderson. 3 Projects Discussed by Mothers Card Party Series to Be Concluded Friday; Plan for Cookie Day.
