16 Thursday, March 9, 1914 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE CEILING PRICES ON GROCERIES IS SET FOR COUNTY Posters With Types and Prices Charged Being Distributed Walter D, Kline, acting director of the Des Moines district of the office of.'price administration, has announced the issuance of a new order establishing "dollar and cent" ceiling prices for a long list of grocery items. This order, which is' effective in Cerro Gordo county, is also applicable, to several surrounding counties A large poster showing the brands of food covered, the container size and the maximum price which may be charged by groups 1 and 2 retailers is being distributed locally to all food stores affected by this order. Distribution is ; being made by the price panel of the local war price and "rationing board of which Mr. Buchanan He stated that the requires each food · is chairman : OPA olrder · store whose prices are established '. in this manner to display this pos; ter prominently where it may easily be read by its customers. Chairman Buchanan pointed out , that the first order of this kind was issued during last summer. This new order is a revision and an extension of grocery items · formerly priced by this procedure. He also said that such an order accomplishes several purposes. H allows both the grocer and the . consumer to know the actual ceil- . ing prices in dollars and cents which may be charged for the i various commodities listed in the order. It also prevents the very few retailers who might desire to over-charge from willfully violating the provision of OPA regulations. AU commodities sold by . food retailers cannot be listed bul the remaining items are subjecl to the provisions of OPA regula- . tions. The local war price and rationing board can provide copies ol this ceiling price list to consumers requesting them for home use. H. Ollenburg Becomes Head of Bank at Garner Garner--Herbert L.

C.--With 50,000 raduate nurses already serving in tie army and navy nurse corps, nilitary and civilian hospitals are urning more and more to the Red Cross Nurse's Aides, a civilian volunteer group to help meet a seri- us situation caused by a mount- ng shortage of trained personnel, according to Mrs. Walter Lippmann, national director of. the :orps. · More than 110,000 Aides al- eady have been certificated after aking the special 80-hour intensive raining course required. 0£ these, ,000 with the most experience, are helping in military hospitals. Gratified civilian hospital s'uper- ntendents say they could not'op- erate their institutions at present capacity without the volunteers. One 'hospital, for instance, normally employed 104 graduate nurses. So many of the staff answered the call to military service hat the trained staff is now reduced to 51 nurses. With the help of 13 paid practical nurses and 20 volunteer Aides, however, it Is able to carry on. High tribute to the value of the iervices performed by Red Cross Curse's Aides in military hospi- als came from Colonel Florence A. Blanchfield, U. S. A., Superin- endent o£ the Army Nurse Corps. "Of the many volunteer groups flakes. Cut onions in inch slices. Pre-cook in boiling salted water 5 minutes; separate into rings. Pat dry on paper towel. Dip in oil, then in crushed flakes. Place under broiler for 10 minutes. Carrot Fries Scrape and cut carrots-lengthwise into slices about Vt inch hick. Dip in egg, roll in crushed flakes and brown in hot 'at in frying pan. Cover and cook slowly about 10 minutes. Cabbage Combine shredded red cabbage vith sliced apples and onions and cook in boiling salted water un'.il tender. Season with vinegar, :ugar and butter to taste. Squash Steam 'or bake squash. Mash and season with honey, butter and salt. Make a' cavity in the op of each serving and fill with hot buttered peas. For a Ravenous Crowd Split frankfurters lengthwise on one side; fill with well seasoned stuffing. Wrap with a slice of b a c o n , fasten with a :ooth pick. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Sandwich Suggestions If your bread is too fresh to slice easily place it in the refrigerator until thoroughly cold This w i l l harden it enough to make thin slicing possible. Best Rice Pudding % cup rice 3 cups milk % teaspoons salt 4 beaten egg whites % cup sugar Grated rind of a lemon 6 large tart apples Wash rice and boil in a erous amount of water for 5 minutes. Drain and cook with milk and salt in a double boiler until tender. Remove from heat add beaten egg whites, sugar grated rind and mix well.

Serve very cold with the following: Sauce for Pudding One cup sugar, % cup water boil together for about 5 minutes Add 1 cup j u i c e apples were cooked in, 1 teaspoon butter, 1 tablespoon corn starch, and juice of lemon as desired. Serve ho over pudding. Now that the rationing program gives us extra points for pork it is well to have new or different ways of preparing. Try this one: Pork Loin with Apples and Onions Wipe a 4% pound pork loin with a damp cloth. Sprinkle witr salt. Place in roaster fat side up Sprinkle with poultry seasoning Peel onions, place around pork alternating with apples that h been washed, cored and cut in halves leaving the peel on. Place in oven and cook at 350 degree for 3 to 3V4 hours. Carrots ma; be added to the apples and on" ions if desired. gen- WAG Wins Army Honor Pocatello, Idaho, (U.R)--There i, no doubt about it. Women are in vading the man's world. For months, various army men have been named "Soldier of th Week" at Gowen Field. But thi latest award, which is based on "soldierly appearance and knowl edge of military courtesy," wa made to Cpl. Elinor Price o Orangeburg, S. Car. She is the first WAC to re ceive the honors. under the Red Cross and other organizations, none has earned a more honored and respected position than the Red Cross-Volunteer Nurse's Aides," she said. "They are serving throughout the country in both civilian and military hospitals. In both situations they are assisting with the nursing care so efficiently that graduate registered nurses are being released for duties requiring more technical skill and for service with the armed forces. "The part these women are Playing exemplifies not only the spirit of patriotism but also the spirit of nursing, for their motive is truly one of service, and their only reward the satisfaction of having served, w h e n greatly needed. In a worthwhile task. "The demand for nurses to care for the wounded abroad and those who have been returned home continues, and will continue, after the war is over. More and more fied Cross Nurse's Aides like those who are now contributing so much are needed and essential to the nursing program of our country." The Volunteer Nurse's Aide Corps was organized as part of the national defense program 3 yean ago, under a joint agreement between the IT. S. office of civilian defense and the Red Cross. During the past year the number of Aides has doubled. Following, an 80-hour intensive training course, the Aides give a number of hours regularly as assistants to graduate nurses, relieving them of certain duties not calling for highly skilled training and knowledge. Besides those working in mili- tary hospitals, other Aides are serving in hospitals of the Veterans Administration, Bureau of Indian Affairs, in civilian hospitals on medical, surgical, orthopedic, pediatric and obstetrical wards, in accident rooms and industrial clinics, outpatient departments and in blood donor centers. The duties undertaken by the Nurse's Aides are many and varied. They may, for instance, take temperature, pulse and respiration of patients and give morning and evening care, prepare and set up treatment trays to be sterilized; help apply plaster casts, help with unsterile dress- Ings, aid in emergency rooms, serve under graduate nurses in casualty stations and first aid posts, assist graduate nurses In the care of victims of floods, tornadoes and other disasters, and give bedside care to certain patients in homes, under the direction of visiting nurses. It is an interesting fact that one-half of the women who apply j for the Nurse's Aide training" are employed full time during the day -- a striking testimony to the patriotism and spirit of self-sacrifice o£ these hard-working women.
