One reason for some people not eating potatoes is that potatoes gained the reputation of being fattening, it's not the potato but it's what you do to potatoes that make them a high-calorie food. A serving of plain boiled potatoes (',2 cup diced) has only 45 calories and a medium sized baked potato has about 100 calories. They are a power house of energy and they furnish several important vitamins and minerals needed in our diet. Economy minded shoppers will usually find fresh potatoes the least expensive form to buy, provided of course, that time and energy to prepare them are not significant. You have a choice of buying potatoes fresh, frozen, canned, flaked or powdered. Highest costs will be found on such products as dehydrated au gralin, frozen, stuffed, baked with cheese, and frozen baked stuffed with sour cream and chives. You pay for the product and you also pay for the work done. It's up to you to determine the best buy for your own household and pocketbook. left - over potatoes keep them covered and cool until you use them.

In look selecting, for those fresh potatoes that are firm, clean, bright and shallow-eyed to cut down on waste and to make cleaning easy; free from cuts, insect injuries, and bruises, to reduce waste; well - shaped for easy cleaning and good looks when you serve them whole. Best way to get the most food value from potatoes is to cook them in their jackets. When raw potatoes are called for, make the peel thin. Peel potatoes just before you cook them — don't let them soak. Serve potatoes immediately after you cook them to keep their vitamin C. If you have ROBERT WILLIAM Mudd, son of Mr. and Mrs. B. F.

It can be a statement of fact, meaning i am your mother or your father. But far loo often it is not used by today's parents," observes Willie Mae Rogers, director of Good Housekeeping Institute and a noted consultant on family living. In discussing modern marriage, she stresses her conviction that young mothers are really dedicated to providing the best shelter, food and clothing available for their children. She believes they are determined to be good mothers. How well do they succeed? "Lei me pul it this way; they don't live the way I would like," she answers, adding: "Yes, they do a superb job on the whole in seeking good food, buying excellent clothing and running Die house well. I am full oi admiration for their dedication to these practical matters. But I do deplore the lack of intimate communication and Hie loss of graciousness in today's home atmosphere." Al Good Housekeeping magazine they receive between 8.0UO and 10,000 letters a month from young homemakers. Furthermore, Miss Rogers travels extensively, lecturing to women's groups and answering their questions. "I think it vital to give a family more than the physical at- Iribules of a home. Fine as these things are, they are not enough to create the spirit of a home, a fortress in which family ties can develop. This fortress is the most important factor in children's lives. It is the source of psychic security."

"But whatever the cause, I regret the loss of quiet, of companionship and the reassuring discipline of the traditional American home," she says. Many young mothers work. "But no job is more important than fostering the spirit of family love and solidarity," she believes, "it isn't enough to provide well for her children. N'o, despile the demands of her job. her children must come first in her thinking and her plans. Extra money alone will not do Ihis for her." Appointed to the New York Slate Women's Council by Gov.
