Hollow Ware A selection- of silver gift pieces. 91.50 Up Boudoir Sets $2.50 Up DT» Drugs and Jewelry With the awed feeling o f the his toric cat and 'her Queen, I went up •to the White House on October 2o to .see our''First Lady of the land— Mrs. Franklin Roosevelt—for a graciously-granted Interview on food for our Poods Section. Bowed past a policeman at th. front step, past a stern doorman a the great, white porticoed entrance and Intu the hands of a young 1 ushe who showed me "into the Green Room to wait, I heard my hear pounding and thought, "Will I ever be able to say anything now" tha' I'm here?" Invited Upstairs. But John Quincy Adams over the mantel and Jefferson in 'his frame over -the sofa gazed down in friend ly fashion. Looking around at th< historic furniture, at the satin wal damask and the green Aubusson rug, i managed to subdue my child ishly-excited feeling. The cozy 'hum of an oil burner had Its quieting ef feet, too. Soon came the word I was to go upstairs to meet Mrs. Roosevelt "upstairs" proving to be that par beyond an iron gflllwork gate through which, the public Is only allowed by invitation or appoint ment. Up the stone steps I scurried to the living quarters of the Pres ident's family. There in the Dollj Madison room, with Its creamy walls and dozens of the President's pet collection of ship pictures, I hac just time to glance out through the long rose draperies to admire the rich fall colorings of the trees ai the rear of the White House.. Mrs. Roosevelt Gracious. Came a soft rush, a light step and Mrs. Roosevelt entered, bouy ant, fresh-faced and eager IOB if she had lots of eager things to do. "You must excuse me for being late," with outstretched hand; her winning smile, "but I was helping my husband. . . .Mr. Kelsey," she called to an usher, "will you please take these papers to my husband He is wanting them right away," "Now, come and sit here," she motioned me to the davenport beside her. "And let's talk fast." Tes there is lots to cover and you appreciate her being so businesslike and so helpful about it. Immediately, you like this tall and charming woman sitting half-facing you, as interested in your simple qustions as if, somehow, you were the First Lady and she the little girl from the country. Shes a Practical Cook. "What cooking training have I had? Let me see." she thought out her answers carefully. "As a little girl I loved to go with my grandmother every , morning when she went around to give out so much sugar and other supplies to the cook." Evidently, the little Eleanor, though barely able to see over the table top, began early to absorb pointers on thrift and good management. "For one year after finishing school I took a course at Columbia University in food preparations and [ood values. Then, for a while before i W as married, I was with a woman who was a practical cook." Her foods training, you see, has seen more one of assimilation of facts as she went along than of for- nal training. Treats Servants Like Humans. Married at the age of 20 (when, as you may remember, she was ;iven away by her uncle, President Theodore Roosevelt), lively, young Eleanor with the blue eyes had to settle down to learning .how to ru,n a big house. Now she could apply ler.theories of good home manage- nent. Later as a mature homemaker, she explained, her idea was always to treat her servants as -humans with adequate compensation for their work and with time off 'or hours spent overtime, "No. I haven't done a great deal of cooking in my life," she answered frankly. -But," and what is more important In her position, "I can teaoh others how to do it." Tries Low-Cost Menus. Because Mrs. Roosevelt has a whole-hearted interest in the con. struction welfare work to feed folks inexpensively during the last few years, she has gone into the matter (seriously. "We have tried out and served at the White House some lowcost menus planned by Miss Rose of Cornell to see what could be done to give the family Inexpensive meals which, would maintain health." (Miss Flora Rose is of the home economics department. Cornell University.) Menus as simple as this one, which is included In a 28-cent-a- day-pcrson menu, were served the White House family: Liver Loaf Mashed Potatoes Stewed Tomatoes Whole Wheat Bread Butter Molasses Crisps Milk for all Doesn't Plan Meals. Naturally, such a. busy woman who has long been interested in a number of educational, social and political matters, wouldn't have time tu plan meals, but I asked her about them, anyway. "No, I don't actually plan them," i-he anwered. "Mrs. Nesbitt handles that. But every morning we go over the menus for the day, and I approve them or make suggestions "•3 to what I would like to have. 1 always know what we're going to have each day." "What did you stress in your children's diet?" was another point (Continue^ on page fa* AT CHRISTENSEN'S on the lower floor.
