Again we have a little problem in connection with the conduct of our Cooking School which compels us to discourage attendance of children at the remaining sessions. Here's the way it is ... The seating capacity of the high school auditorium has never been great enough to accommodate all the housewives who wished to attend the Cooking School. Approximately 200 women were turned away from the first session of the school which opened Tuesday afternoon. Of course, a seat is a seat, whether it's occupied by a child or by a grown-up. Our request, therefore, is . . . The parents co-operate with us by not bringing children under the age of 15. We hasten to explain that this is merely a reguest and a suggestion. It is NOT a rule to be enforced. Our pleasant experience in staging Cooking Schools in the past leads us to believe that the consideration of others involved in this suggestion will be forthcoming. And we'll thank you heartily!

CHICAGO--Pork prices at retail, notwithstanding recent strengthening in the prices of some cuts, are now substantially lower than at last October's peak, the Institute of American Meat Packers pointed out. According to the latest figures available from the Bureau of Agricultural Economics, those of Feb. 29, pork prices at retail were from six to 21 per cent below those of Oct. 15. "Pork seems on its way back to its normal place as the leading meat in the American diet," the institute commented, "although production will recover slowly from .the abnormally low levels reached in 1935, and although supplies in the present hog marketing year, which ends with September, will not be much different from those of the 1934-35 marketing year. Quality Better. "Not only are pork prices down, but the quality of the pork and other meats available throughout 1936 is expected to be better than that of last year because supplies of livesock feeds are relatively larger." The Institute summarized the situation in the cost of a "market basket" of pork containing a pound each of nine pork products whose retail prices are listed twice a month by the Bureau of Agricultural Economics--the nine items selected for this purpose being center loin chops, end chops, Boston butts, spareribs, lard (in cartons), smoked whole hams No. 1, sliced bacon No. 1, smoked picnics, and sausage meat. "On Sept. 30," it noted, "the recorded cost of these nine 'good grade' items at Chicago retail stores was a total of $2.74, and on October 15 it reached its recorded peak to ?2.75. Two weeks later it had dropped to 52.53; and by the end of January,- the last date for which this set of figures is available, it had declined to $2.34--a figure 15 per cent under the October peak. Doivn 21 Per Cent. "Figures for Feb. 29 are already at hand, however, in another set of six items, quoted from the United States Bureau of Agricultural Economics. These figures show center cut pork chops to have declined 21 per cent at Chicago, and 13 per cent at New York, in the interval from the middle of October to the end of February. Bacon strips had dropped 10 per cent at Chicago and 11 per cent at New York in the same period; sliced bacon, 8 per cent, at Chicago and 10 per cent at New York; whole ham 6 per cent at Chicago and 9 per cent at New York: smoked picnics, 15 per cent at Chicago and 8 per cent at New York and lard, 24 per cent at Chicago and 21 per cent at New York. Wholesale prices on pork are now available through the week ending March 14, during which slight advance took place in the case of some fresh cuts, and through the week ending March 7, in the case of cured cuts. The Institute compared these with prices of the week of October 12. with the following results: Declines in the wholesale price of one type of hams within this five month period ranged from 11 per cent at New York and Chicago, and 16 at Philadelphia; those of another type of hams, from 7 per cent at New York to 21 per cent at Philadelphia; a third type, from 5 per cent'at Chicago to 11 per cent at Philadelphia; and a fourth,- from 5 per cent at New York to 15 per cent at Philadelphia. Declines Larger. On other pork products included in the comparison the declines were still larger. Price drops on one type of loins ranged from 19 per cent at New York to 22 per cent at Philadelphia, and on another from 20 per cent to 22 per cent in the same respective cities. Prices of two types of bacon showed drops of from 9 to 17 per cent in these cities; those of butts, from 20 to 23 per cent; smoked picnics, from 13 to 17 per cent; dry salt backs, from 30 to 40 per cent, and lard, from 29 to 32 per cent. "Ordinarily it should not be expected that the percentage of in- :rease or decline in retail prices should be as large as that in wholesale prices," the institute pointed out, "since the retailer's purchases of meat comprise only a part of his expenses of operating, and changes In retail prices--either up or down-- ag behind changes in wholesale Drices. But both wholesale and re:ail prices of pork are now considerably down from the peak."
