THE FACILITIES serve an average of 750.000 persons daily. dayman attributed the steady growth of WoolworthV food services to the wide variety of foods the facilities of- ier each day. “Also responsible."’ he said, “is the care the company takes in preparation of food. Every dish 1 » put through numerous tests and testings in Woolworth-- laboratory and test kitchen in New York.” Mrs. Kitty Musgrove is in charge of all food operations in the new i>tore.

Ore. r—A youngster's business was nearly booming before police stepped in at an elementary school. An anonymous caller told police recently there had been dynamite in the school. The caller was right, and the dynamite was for sale. Police picked up four teenage boys who allegedly bought the dynamite and another youth who they said sold the explosive, which had been stored in his locker. Police found 29 sticks of the explosive in the woods later and one stick in each boy's home. Authorities said the dynamite was taken from a resident who used it for blasting stumps. * 135.000.000 cups of coffee. The purchase of commodities for Woolworth meals runs into millions of pounds, day­ man said. For example, purchases of flour for its bakeries amounted to 16,000.000 pounds; beef purchases totaled 7.000.000 pounds, potatoes 18.* 000,000 pounds, turkey 7,000,000 pounds, butter 2.000,000 pounds. He predicted the company’s produce purchases unquestionably will increase substantially this \ear because of Wool­ worth’s continuing expansion program. Altogether, 47 new uled to open this year, and in restaurant facilities are sched- plannmg any new store operation, the food departments are an important part of the plan.. “WOOLWORTHS POLICY *•’ to use the finest quality ingredients in food preparation, and we purchase locally/ dayman ~e ported. “This means we buy from wholesalers and retailers in as many cities as we have stores, and every state receives some por­ tion o?
