Johannsen of . Benevolence By CLARA MADSON ISLP — that's the Iowa school lunch program, which in Mason City is used in the Monroe and Roosevelt, junior high schools. Each noon a.t the 2 schools approximately 350 youngsters pass down the cafeteria counter for their lunch, 200 of them at Roosevelt and 150 at Monroe. Each school has an attendance a little the 5QO mark.. The youngsters go through the line-in one shift, from 12 to 12:30 By the time the last child has his tray filled the first ones have finished eating. Many of them come back to a candy and frostick counter, though this is not encouraged. For 22 Cents ., ^gb Prices being what they are to return it is something to get for 22 cents the meal that makes up the ".blue plate special" offered. At Roosevelt on the. day that school was visited the plate consisted of a hot dish of macaroni and cheese, cabbage salad, ground ham sandwich prune sauce, milk and orange nuice. If ordered a la carte the cost would have been 34 cents. The larger the group the cheaper the, plate can be served. At Monroe for 26 cents the "blue plate" contained creamed turkey on mashed potatoes; peanut 'butter sandwich; pea salad containing cheese and hard boiled egg; fruit salad with whipped cream; milk and orange juice. Largest crowds go down the line the day the children find their favorite foods. At Roosevelt they are disappointed if on Mondays chih isn't on the menu. And at Monroe the youngsters are especially pleased to get hot dogs Most of .them like the mashed potatoes and goulash is another favorite. The menus are posted in the halls. Is Self Supporting The lunch program is self-supporting and independent of the school district. For signing up for the state program the cafeteria gets' a reimbursement from the government of 6 cents for each 'A" type of lunch sold—the "blue plate special," in other words. If no milk is. . included the reimbursement for each lunch is 4 cents and if only milk is bought, the cafeteria gets a 2 cent kickback. Out of the lunch receipts eoines the money to pay for the groceries and to pay the salaries of the cook and her assistant. There is no aim at a profit, but rather the money is turned back into providing good meals. Some of the commodities, part of the time, are government surplus, such as potatoes, dried fruit, a little chees€ and the fruit : juice which may be tomato orange or grapefruit. . All the bookwork involved in keeping this record, -which is turned in to the state in a detailed report each month, is in charge of the principal of each school. A. G. Krager at Roosevelt, and Donald G. Henn at Monroe. « To be exact, the principals turn the reports over to the secretary of the school board, Bernard Main, who sends them in to the department of public instruction—school lunch division—at Des Moines. The local board secretary also pays all the grocery bills on order of the 2 junior high schools. Managed by Women Cooks Each of the^ cafeterias at the 2 schools is managed by a woman cook who also purchases the .groceries. At Roosevelt it's Mrs. Mamie Ottinger assisted by Mrs. Paul Gustafson. Five girls there help do the dishes in return for their meals and 10 boys "bus" dishes after the meals. City School Lunch Program window.

Some Bring Own lunches The children .who take advantage of the ISLP are not the only ones who do not go home for lunch. At Roosevelt about 200 bring their own lunches which they eat seated at long tables on the stage in the gymnasium, under the supervision of Custodians Mrs. Charles Kraft and H. J. Kelly who also have, charge of selling milk, which by the way, •CANDY COUNTER AT MONROE-ThereTffwayl room for a candy bar, think these Monroe junior high youngsters, even though they have just finished their hot dish luncheon of creamed turkey on mashed potatoes and several more items making up a balanced meal. The beseiged lady behind the counter is Ada Belseth, 9th* grader, who takes care of this angle of the lunch hour. This is the only time the children have access to the candy at the school is 5 cents there. Some 80 girls and the same number of boys bring their own lunches at. the Monroe school. The girls eat theirs in the cafeteria lunch room, and the boys eat in a room supervised by a teacher who takes turns in being on duty. F. M. Maxwell, boys' adviser and librarian, supervises the cafeteria. National Lunch Act Each month ISLP sends a sheet entitled "Abundant Foods." For December it stated: "The following foods are expected to be in plentiful supply during the month of December: Orange and grapefruit; grade B eggs; canned peas; Irish potatoes; carrots; dried beans and peas. Please 'see that this material is available for the use of the persons who plan and prepare the menus." Further advice sent to the schools read: "Keep accurate record for December of money spent in purchasing the above foods" The National School Lunch act requires that "Each school shall insofar as is practicable utilize in its lunch program commodities desig- nated from time to time by the secretary of agriculture as being in abundance. The purchase cost of these foods by item must be included in your monthly report and claim for reimbursement." The program which was established under the department of agriculture was turned over to the state department of public instruction, school lunch division.
