MARCH 17 1931 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE 17 Coeds Out to Learn How Little They Can Live on Cedar Rapids Girl One of' Pair Living in Slums ' of Boston. BOSTON, March 17. UP1--Over In the south end of the city amid the turmoil of push-carts and urchins, two girls working for' bachelor of science degrees in June are paring living expenses' to the bone and then some. Freyda Peck of New London, Conn., and Ruth Kortellng, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, conceived the idea in the hope of supplying accurate data for the state of Massachusetts, the legislature of which passed an old pension bill which goes into effect July 1. They hoped to arrive at the minimum at which an old person could go down the back path of life in the surroundings to which he or she was accustomed. Sponsored By Union The work'was sponsored by the Women's Educational and Industrial union of Boston which has an arrangement with Simmons college whereby such experimenters may receive the B. S. degree from the latter Institution. The girls entered their ''laboratory" in January and hope to stay until June. Excluding clothing, the experimenters maintain that they can live "comfortably" on 56.25 .a week each. They listed individual expenses each week as follows: for rent, 52.15 for food, 41 cents for gas and light, 20 cents for laundry and 49 cents for incidentals. The cost of some of their meals will blast the alibis of many a housewife. One meal, a breakfas for two, cost 6 cents. It consistec of orange juice, toast and coffee A more lavish breakfast, however consisting of oranges, one egg each toast with plenty of butter and cof fee, cost but 13 cents. . Lunch on 13 Cents The girls say they can also lunch ,for 13 cents. This menu carries egj salad, bread and butter and tea. The experimenters have "heavy dinners. One includes creamed sal mori, mashed potatoes, bread an butter and milk. It costs but 2 cents. The girls contend that they hav had "a great time" since beginnin, the experiment. "Wo have no recreation problem, Miss IVflc said. "You see,' we ar i i l y taken out. Then, too, w !·( of fun out of mint tth the shoppers and bargaining ith the hawkers." .

By the bag the difference is several cents. By the cake or pan of rolls it is only a small fraction of a cent. Cheap, low-grade flour is almost certain to bring failures. Women who buy cheap flour bar themselves from fine baking by their split-penny skimping.
