The common faults in bread are given
in a bulletin on “Principles of Bread
Making’’ by Mrs. W. H. Calvin, dean of
home economics at the Oregon Agricul
tural College. They are as follows:
“Sourness, due to poor yeast, to high
a temperature, or too long fermenta
tion; moldinees, due to unclean uten
sils, mouldy wheat, flour stored in a
mouldy place, or bread placed in a box
or cloth that waa mouldy; uneven tex
