A.U. •IV. general director Dr. Kathryn McHale and stale chairmen and officers. We hope that your stay here will be a happy and memorable one. * * * : If you don't read advertising, how does it happen your home is filled with advertised * * * VTOMEMAKERS in this country JLl are challenged to refute the .' old saying: "A woman can throw out mere with a teaspoon than a ' man can bring in with a shovel." Louise Bryant, extension service specialist in home management, says it's largely up to the women to avoid teaspoon wastes. Small losses multiplied in 34 million homes can amount tea wastes which stagger the imagination. Here are some suggestions she offers to consumers. * * * T)LAN shopping lists in advance -L and don't order by telephone or you likely won't get the best selections. Don't do all your shopping at one store. Read all labels carefully, and as often as possible buy by official government grades fixed by the Agricultural Marketing service. Notice cost per ounce as well as per can. Buy fruits and vegetables in season, for out of season they are likely to be expensive and poor in flavor and quality. Instead of by the bunch or piece, try buying by the pound. Watch your own and the storekeepers' weights. * * * TNVESTIGATE the possibility of J- saving by buying in quantity provided you have available cash and. ample storage room. Learn about the uses, food values, and limitations of food substitutes such as oleomargarine for butter, and cheaper cuts of meat for the more expensive. When food has been purchased there is still plenty of opportunity to prevent waste. Perishables should be put into the refrigerator immediately. Outer leaves of cabbage and lettuce should be saved and used. Potatoes and apples should be peeled thin or not at all. Homemakers should also save fats, bread crumbs, pan drippings, and the liquid in which vegetables have been cooked. * * * AT SEVENTEEN A T SEVENTEEN a boy isn't very •£*• old, but he's old enough to be a philosopher.
