WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 1947 Lr the Herald'i Homemakers by Iowa State College Home Economists he Food We Save Feeds— THE UNKNOWN GUEST replace flour and <£her grain foods Then there's salsify or "Vegetable oyster"' ar.d r parsnips, which rank right along with potatoes for food value. Onions are next in order followed by carrots and beets, rutabagas and turnips. All these vegetables except beets can make meat go a long way in stews, meat pies, scallops and other main cold-weather dishes. And let's not waste the leftovers. Careful as many families are to keep edible food out of the garbage pail, it's the insignificant potato peelings, the crust of bread, the half salad and cold gravy that count up. into mountains of wasted food that the "unknown guest" would have been glad to eat. Home surveys show that, in the past, more than 225 pounds of edible food per person each year have been wasted. > Just a slice of bread wasted each week by every family in the country adds up to an unthinkable quantity —100 million loaves of bread a year.

Now we're called upon to make room for an unexpected guest; one .who won't actually sit down at our breakfast or dinner table but who needs the food just the same—the boy or girl, man or woman overseas in starving Europe. Saving- Not New. Saving food by not wasting food, by stretching it out, is nothing new to most of us. Ration restrictions and high prices have had us "minding our menus" for lo, these many years. But all the high prices we now think we pay are still little when compared to the price of peace and of plenty for all in years to come. Perhaps never before have home makers been faced with such an over-all food sharing plan, says Jewel Graham, extension nutritionist, . Iowa State College. In days when meat was short, there was wheat to stretch the menus. Now Wheat, meat, and even other foods must needs be limited. That's because wheat is feed as well as food. It can be the mainstay of many a diet to save starving millions. It has been a staple food to feed livestock. Less demand for • meat or poultry means fewer animals to feed and more grain saved. This year each person in Iowa will have about 159 pounds of meat to eat. Miss Graham reports. In England each person will have, at the utmost, only 26 pounds of meat. While many an Iowa homemaker is beset with problems of how to keep her food costs down, it's well to be mindful that she lives" in a state that offers many foods in abundance; that it isn't a case of depending on someone else to furnish food but a case of using that which will not deprive others of the right to live. "How can this be done?" many a homemaker asks. One way, says Miss Graham, is to make liberal use of the filling root vegetables which the homemakers of pioneer days always depended on.*" Use Root Vegetables. Root vegetables offer food energy along with a liberal portion of vitamins and minerals. They're generally inexpensive and they offer bulk which gives that "satisfied feeflng." For vitamin content and energy value sweet potatoes lead the list of root vegetables. White potatoes come next. Both, can be used to UNDERSTANDING IOWA CHILDREN DON'T I HAVE THE RIGHT TO USE THE CAR? When teen-agers meet with a councillor, they never fail to ask the question, "Don't I have the right to use the car?" As members of a family, boys I and girls _ have the right to .their' share of use of the car. Now how can their share be determined? Perhaps a boy knows that he will get the car only by talking louder and longer than his sister, or by wheedling his mother or by wearing down his - father in an argument. Such methods do not teach him to be fair minded; He is learning to get the car whenever he can, regardless of the rights of others. He is developing go-getter methods instead of useful methods for living among people. Use of the car provides a problem in family cooperation. Some families hold a council where the plans of each member are talked over. They plan a family schedule for the week. The father's business schedule comes first. Mother's necessary needs are given high priority, like bringing home groceries and doing family shopping. Essential-'errands by the young people also have priority. After the necessary work-a-day business, comes the evening use of the car for clubs, parties, dates. In a fair discussion, youth can learn to consider the rights of others. But the discussion must bi fair. Youth's own rights also must be respected. / Weekly schedules do not always run as smoothly as planned. Here is another opportunity to learn to give and take for it is always possible to trade places with some one else in the family. The parents can set the example of fair dealing. • They also may have to enforce fair dealing at times, since the youngsters still need several years' experience in being fair. t Guided practice in family cooperation provides better training than practice in "wangling" and go-getting.

Twenty-six different varieties of plant seeds were utilized by Miss Leona Rosenberger of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, in creating a seed picture called "Iowa Bouquet" which has been sent to the Iowa Development Commission. The picture is a bowl of flowers in relief on a sand background. Seeds form the bowl and the blooms which overflow in a remarkably artistic ar rangement are also fashioned from painted seeds.

He now has 32, ranging in size from a 11-inch white pottery horse from Mexico to a tiny ha'nd-carved Italian steed.
