Can Make Sugarless
Apple Butter; Receipt
by College Experts
Sugarless applebutter Vnay sound as
Impossible as hamless ham and eggs,
but the Food Administrator, that
wizard of provender and cookery, de
clares that applebutter made without
sugar can be as good as the kind
grandmother used to make, if the
proper procedure is followed in using
the substitute he herewith suggests.
At the same time he sounds a hopeful
note for the future of the sugar
"Applebutter isn't going to be a
minus quantity this year, even though
sugar is," he said. "Pennsylvania
I State College has come to the rescue
of the applebutter makers this season,
through the Department of Home
Economics, which issues the following
tried and tested receipt:
"Take one-half as much white corn
syrup as thick apple pulp, add one
teaspoonful of cinnamon to each
quart of the mixture and make
otherwise exactly as the applebutter
is made with sugar."
Simple, isn't it? But it produces the'
right result.
Incidentally, the Food Administra
tor added this morning, all kinds of
canning may be done without sugar,
the system being what is known as
"sugar pack." The local Food Ad
ministrator will supply information
and details upon request, and the
newspapers have carried full infor
mation. Fruits canned without sugar
may be readily sweetened when used,
and the supply of sugar promises to
be more plentiful later in the fajl and
early winter.
Hotel and restaurants are also urged
to use no sugar in canning, as they
use a very considerable amount of
stigar each year in this manner. Not
using it at this time will greatly aid
the local situation.
Railroads to Employ
Thousands of Women
Washington, Ang. 13.—Thousands
of women will be drawn into railroad
employment within the next, few
months to take the places of men
entering the Army and going to oth
er industries, according to plans now
being formulated by the railroad
administration. Women are to be
employed extensively as clerks In
railway offices, as expert account
ants, ticket sellers, station agents,
crossing watchers, car cleaners and
to some extent as track laborers.
This course will not result in the
dismissal of any men, since the de
mand for workers in nearly all fields
uf railway employment already ex
ceeds the supply.
The general policy of the railroads
will be to pay the same wages paid
men for similar service.
