SPECIAL FREE INFORMATION BUREAU
OPENED IN WASHINGTON, D. C.
The Oregonian to Act as Clearing
House of Information Between
the Government and the People
The Oregonian believes that it can render no more important and practical service to its readers
than to acquaint them with the results of the great work the American Government is doing for
' Our Government is the greatest organization devoted to a single purpose that the world has ever
known.' The keenest minds, the broadest learning, the most expert technical skill are turned, day in
and day out, on every problem that confronts the American people. Problems of. the household,
problems of the factory, problems of the city, questions of health and hygiene, questions of oppor
tunity, of self-help and help for others all these, and many more, are studied in Federal labora
tories and in the field, by men at the head of their professions, with the resources of the richest
nation on earth behind tnem.
The work is being done for you. Your Government is doing it. You are entitled to the benefit
of its results.
Merely to know the details of Government activities, to see and understand the great machinery
behind them, is to take a new pride in the United States and in American citizenship. But the Gov
ernment has more than' pride to offer. It does its work to give concrete and practical help . to its
citizens in their homes and in their business.
The Oregonian proposes to act as a clearing-house between the Government and
the people of the Pacific Northwest. It purposes to assemble, compile and distribute
the practical results of the great Federal work of research and investigation. It pur
poses to make this information available to every one of its readers. For this purpose The
Oregonian opens its new Washington Bureau. ?
The services of Mr. Frederic J. Haskin have been secured to conduct the new bureau. Mr. Haskin
is well known as one of the leading authorities on the workings of the Federal Government. His
book, 'The American Government," is a standard on the subject. The great moving picture, "Uncle
Sam at Work," is based on this book. Readers of The Oregonian are familiar with Mr. Haskin's
ability as a writer, his articles on topics of current events having been a feature of this newspaper.
Mr. Haskin is a man of wide travel and long experience in the accurate gathering and concise report
ing of facts. His position in Washington fits him peculiarly for the work the bureau is to do.
In beginning its new service The Oregonian Bureau offers "THE WAR COOK BOOK," a
pamphlet of special interest to the home. Mr. Haskin has compiled in this pamphlet the results of
Government researches, made at great pains and expense for the benefit of the hqusehold. The
investigations deal with simple, practical things that every housewife ought to know. 4
The purpose ef this cook book. 'hich has just been published, is to put the mar in terms of the kitchen end
pantry. It shows how every home can help; how every Woman can save enough food to assure some American boy
in France of three square meals a day.
One side ef the food-saving campaign, according to the authorities in Washington, is not sufficiently understood.
Too many people think that food conservation means making a sacrifice. The opposite is more nearly true. When
you save food, as the term goes today, you help your country, you live as Well as ever, and you save money.
For instance: Right now, you are asked to save a little wheat Because wheat is scarce, the Army needs it; and
also because wheat is scarce, it is expensive. Now, com is just as good and just as nourishing as wheat if you know
how to use if. Hence, when you use some corn and less wheat, you don't undergo any hardship you help the Army,
and you save money. That is what intelligent food conservation means.
"The War Cook Book" goes into all the details of intelligent food saving, and sets them forth clearly in a few
words. It is exact and specific; it doesn't merely say: "You can use corn instead of wheat" if gives you numerous
recipes, showing exactly how the corn should be used. One of the items in the cook book is a list of twenty ways of
cooking corn. How many can you think of?
Of course, wheat and corn are only one detail. The cook book is. full of war-time- suggestions, "household war ."
orders" and new recipes. One interesting item is a chart of "Food Elements" that shows how to balance your meals, , .'
so that you may be sure of eating all the different food necessities every day. ' . .
The Government has spent your money td
teach you how to do these things. The Orego
nian Information Bureau is ready to tell you
what the Government has found out.
