A hundred million bushels of Eialn! TliiU's what (he Citizens Food Committee is asking for the Inyigry In Western Europe. Everybody Is trying to send these bushels of {-rain to the people who need it so elcsppi-aiely. Distillers, brewers, bakers arc carrying out. programs of curtailed production. Growers are featuring plentiful foods. , How can hompmnkers contribute to food-saving? Once they know (lie terrible, pressing need, they quickly want to know how the whole program set up by the Citizens Food Committee fits Info the big job of sending those millions of bushels of grain. A lot of neople have been uskliig: "How lines meatless Tuesday hrh> to eel grain to Europe?" First you must realize that when you eal meat, you're eating "rain Since three-fourths of all the grain raised In the United States goes into livestock nnr! i>oul!n- feeding, that's where w c must turn for most of ouv grain saying. Usually it takes about five pounds of grain to I produce a pound of meat. And I much more than that for the top- I grade stuff—the steaks you love to j tCjKh. x So It stands to reason. If : tWhomemaker cuts down on meat, j huylng — or serves the cheaper ! :uts that require less grain — the farmer will send his livestock to 'mnr'itct sooner, thus shortening the grain-feeding period, it may sound like remote control. Yet actually your kitchen Isn't too far removed from the feed lot where Farmer McKtnley wanted to keep his cows just a little thinner, his hogs a little lighter, to keep Europe's "kids from being so hungry. Another familiar question: "\Vlial about Thursday — dolnjr without cfTRs? The answer goes something like this. If you skip egss on Thursday, there will be less demand for this product At this very heart of all this foodsavinR is the Aincrican u home- r.iaker. Without her under.<itaivlh><; and cooperation, the whole campaign bogs down. Thai's why the Citizens Food committee lost no time in setting up a.
