RACE-EIGHT H S TEACHER TELLS HOW TO ON SUGAR KOSSUTH COUNT'Y AlDVANdl, ALGONA, IOWA Helen Comtfort, home-making , teacher at the high school, had three lecture classes at the home economics room last week for housewives. The lectures had to do with the sugar shortage and recipes and demonstrations were given on ways to save sugar, also how to use other sweetening agents as part of the sugar called for in the recipes. Miss Comfort said that corn sugar or honey could be substi-1 luted for one-half the sugar in' a recipe, but when this is done one-fourth less liquid shoulr' be used. She also said not to ".ry : to use syrup in making ai ',el I food or sponge cake, j Because of the scarcity of but-; tcr and the 'points' necessary to' get it, few homemakers use it in ; baking. If lard is used instead i of the usual vegetable fats, and the recipe call.s for a cup, only seven-eighths of a cup of lard should -be used. In experiments lard, plentiful in Iowa, is equally good as other cooking fats, but when bland lard is used one-fourth teaspoonii'al of salt should be added. Homemakers who attended the lectures were given a particularly valuable booklet of recipes which had been tried and \ tested by freshman girls under direction of Miss Comfort. BIG TOTAL OF WASTE FAT IS RECEIVED HERE Waste fat collected here from April 28 to May 20 amounted to 1510 pounds, or a little less than 400 pounds a week. The overall average for 1944 amounted to 1100 pounds per month. Of the amount salvaged red token points were paid for all but 52 pounds which was sent in by the Coffee shop. Eating places that serve more than 50 people daily arc not permitted to receive tokens for used fat. Last year 11 million pounds of lubricant, by-product of used household fats, was used for drawing of steel bars and wires. In the making of tires and spares for an eight-wheel ZVz- ton army transport truck 31 1'bs. c&»waste fat sre used. The single war unit requiring the most fat in its production is the pontoon bridge. One car of used household fat, 60,000 pounds, will provide the ingredients for 240,000 anti-aircnift shells. G. A. Paine, at the local salvage depot, says there has been no noticeable decline in collection of fat since the higher point values on cooking oils and fats became effective.
