Bread Energy Producing Food but It
Must be Supplemnted by Prop-
erly Balanced Diet.
White bread is perhaps the most
important article in the American
diet, because of its extensive use. If
is our principal energy producing
food, as a carbohydrate food, and so
in the average meal, makes a contri-
bution for which it would be hard to
find an adequate substitute. Whole
wheat bread, rye bread or graham
bread, to be sure, may be substituted
for the sake of maximum nutrition by
those who prefer as many do, the
taste of the white bread.
Experiments have fairly well re-
moved grounds for the charge that
white bread is less rich in elements
good for the human system than its
brothers of the bread family. What
experiments have proved, on the con-
trary, is that all wheat breads are ex-
ceedingly important and valuable in
the diet, but that no wheat bread is
sufficient in itself to sustain lide
properly. Man cannot “live by breaa
alone,” in the literal sense. This
statement is not an argument against
eating bread. ¢
We can safely eat plenty of bread
with excellent results if ‘we combine
it with other foods that will give a
properly balanced diet and that will
supply certain elements that bread
itself lacks.
Fruit and the leafy vegetables fur-
nish the proper balance for bread in
a meal and not only will we find this
kind of meal satisfying to the palate
but we may feel assured that we
have supplied our system with all
that the most princely income could
buy. A little meat added to the above,
not too much and not at every meal,
will make a perfect diet.
The protein of either whole wheat
flour or white flour is not of a type
sufficient to flourish the body since
wheat protein is deficient. The pro-
tein of bread must be supplemented
with either a meat or proper veget-
able protein before the proper protein
nourishment is assured for building
muscles and other tissues.
Also wheat flour does not contain
enough inorganic salts (mineral salts)
to meet the needs of growth and
health. In the case of lime, for in-
stance, a person would have to eat
ninety slices of white bread to obtain
sufficient lime for his body’s needs. 1t
would be absurd therefore to de-
pend upon bread for lime, - when
leafy vegetables will supply it.
Milk also supplies it in a large pro-
portion. Although bread is one of the
chief articles of diet there is never
enough eaten at any one meal, or at
any one time, to assist very greatly
the human body in growth and main-
tenance. Bread is an energy-produc-
ing food. We need tn look to it for
that, an important enough contribu-
tion, and not look to it for those ele-
ments that come properly from other
According to Dr. E. C. McColium,
of Johns Hopkins University, wheat
flour also is deficient in a certain sub-
stance, as yet unidentified, which will
give satisfactory nourisnment to any
human being for any great sength of
time. This unknown substance may
be found in butter fat, and so bread
requires supplementing with some-
thing containing the substance found
in butter fat. Thus it is seen that
the tradition which weds “bread and
butter” is justified by dietetic analy-
Undernourishment may come about)
from a diet which is restricted too
closely to bread. The diet consisting
almost entirely of “bread and coffee”
three times a day, which prevails in
some sections of the country, is not
safe and is not to be recommended.
This statement is not a criticism of
bread, but merely a recognition of
fact that no food is in itself perfect.

in the comfortable lounge that forms

tellectual nature of the man. ‘The

The society did not receive its royal

in chipmunks.
Its development in human beings
was caused by contact with the diseas-
ed parts of rabbits.
The article in question paints a
grisly picture of this disease, and
states that traces of it have been
found in 26 States! that it travels
through the unbroken skin by contact;
that there is no cure, but that it may
be prevented by handling the rabbit
with rubber gloves and by thorough
The article itself carries no intima-
tion that the disease is general in its
scope, but excerpts were copied by
newspapers throughout the State, and
some alarm has been felt by hunters.

Present-Day Almanac
Traced to Old Greece
tar back In the days of ancient
greece it was the custom to announce
the first day of the month either
through a herald or placards pasted
on the city walls.
These placards
were known as kalends, or kolendae, !
from the Greek, “I call or proclaim.” i
‘The book of accounts referring to the
days of the year was known as a
calendarium, hence the word calendar. |
Excavators at Pompeii have discov-
ered a square block of marble which
served the Greeks as a calendar.
Each side served as a record of three
months, Each month was headed by
the proper sign of the zodiac, and con-
tained astronomical, agricultural and
religious information.
Tracing back the origin of the worn
almanac, Verstegan, the famous old
lexicographer, says:
“Our ancient Saxon ancestors usea
to engrave on certain squared sticks
about a foot in length, sometimes more,
sometimes less, the courses of the
moones of the whole yeare, whereby
they alwaies certainly tell whatt new
moones, full * moofes and changes
should happen, as also their festival
daies; and such a carved stick they
called al-mon-aght; that is to say, al-
mon-heed, to wit, the regard or ob-
servation of all the moones, and hence
Is derived the name almanac.”
Families and Happiness
{ have learned that the happiest
~seople in the world are those who are
happily mated and have large families.
Although they do not say, as a rule,
that they are happy, 1 often see the
envy in other people's eyes. They
work hard, apparently not knowing
how disagreeable are the tasks thrust
on them, and without caring how much
their labors made them tired. When
the evening comes, they carry home
the profits of their toil and lay them
on the laps of the women who love
them. Perhaps, somewhere in the next
room, a baby is crying. I might find
it disturbing. They think it the most
beautiful music in the world. —Hannen
Sweffer in London Express.

fect food, and yet no adult “would
think of living on milk to the extent
of restricting his three meals a day to
it. Bread does carry out efficiently
for the human system the part that
Nature assigned to it, but it does not
do everything.
The value of milk is being recog-
nized by bakers of good white bread.
The milk content supplies certain ele-
ments that add to the nourishing
qualities of the bread. For this reason
I strongly urge the use of bread that
contains a liberal quantity of good
wholesome milk.
White bread, being light and
spongy, invites by its texture, proper
chewing, and also a proper chewing
of the foods eaten with it. Chewing
our food is one of the important ad-
vantages that stands to the credit of
bread in the diet.
White bread is pleasant to the eye,
and pleasant to the taste. Its place
in diet is justifiably a high one. It
will undoubtedly remain one of the
principal articles of diet through the
ages to come. People will learn to
eat it in meals that are proverly bal-
anced; then the things that have been
said against white bread, and which
ought to have been said against the
lack of balance in meals, will have no
basis in fact. When we thoroughly
understand these facts, white bread
will bear its part as “the staff of life”
without being asked to bear the whole
burden -of maintaining life.—By Dr.
Daniel R. Hodgdon.

Breaking an Egg
The slightest tap against a hard sur
«ace is usually sufficient to break the
shell of an ordinary egg. If, however,
pressure is exerted gradually at each
end of the egg it Is often impossible
to break it with the bare hands. The
United States bureau of standards re-
cently decided to find out just how
much pressure would be required to
break an egg in this manner. A pres-
sure of 51 pounds had to be exerted
cn the testing machine before the shell
of an egg gave way.
