C.; Au£, 7. — A more varied menu will woon reach Allied prisoners of war and civilian/ internees in German prison camps as a result of the American Red'. Cross.'s plan to introduce a greater variety of foods into its prisoner of war standard food packages. The Red Cross announced today that instead of the one type of standard food package • being distributed now to Allied captives in Germany, its packaging centers hereafter will pack six different standard food packages for war prisoners. After several months of captivity ,vith an unvarying diet, the lied Cross pointed out, prisoners will welcome tho prospect that their next food parcels may bo a little different. . . . The food parcef now being received by able-bodied prisoners contains biscuits, cheese, chocolate bars, cigarettes, coffee, corned beef, chopped ham, jam, liver paste, dried mills, oleomargarine, prunes, salmon, coup, and sugar. The new. variations will not reduce the basic nutritive value of the parcel but will include a different kind of biscuit, substitute tuna for salmon, corned beef hash lor plain corned' beef, honey for joir.. moat and vegetable stew for chopped ham. and contain other new Kerns. Once a month one of ihe pr\ckriKi'!iK centers will pack a special parcel containing dried eggs, dried onions, and a can of peaches. Some of the packages wiJI contain cereal of one sort or . another. j Volunteers at the three packaging centers in New York... Philadelphia, and St. TwOUis will pack one typo of package nt a time, so that supplies may bo handled easily.
