THE LADIES PAGE


| May/June 1957



Mrs. Frances Mann, of Otterbein, Indiana, is our lady this issue and she gives us a letter and an article. I am sure you will find it both informative and interesting. Thanks Mrs. Mann. Send us your articles on the History of Bread and Corn ground on stone burrs Elmer likes mush. AUNT LENE.

I enclose an article. You can print it or not, or leave out what you want to. I have become very much interest ed in feeding ourselves better. DC. George Scarseth, national head of Research of American Farm Bureau Federation, says, 'You can have starvation on a full belly'.

I have heard so many wives complaining about their husbands' steam engine hobby. If they would get interested in some hobby that ran along the side of his, they would both be happier.

There is a feeling of satisfaction in turning out your own home baked bread and in knowing that it contains the ingredients that will help your family to enjoy life more abundantly.

The baking does not take much time because you can start it while you are doing your breakfast dishes and bake it while you are eating lunch. The art of bread making seems as important, if not more important, than some of the hobbies that women pursue at home.

I should have liked to have told some of the history of bread and how bread changed history. I would have liked to have told of corn ground on stone burrs and what could be done with it. I thought it would make the article too long.
