1'nt Vnilotis Kinds of Food.
Mo9t peoplo eat too much soft
food. Hard foods, llko crusts, toast,
hard fruits and nuts, that mako us
chow, are good for us. They mnko
us uso our teeth.
Hard foods also keep your teeth
from decaying.
Tho size and weight of the food
have little to do with tho work it
docs in jour bodj. A llttlo pnt of
butter, which weighs half an ounce,
holds Just as much food ns a pound
nnd n hnlf of watermelon.
Tho work that food does Is meas
ured by tho heat it makes in your
body. Hat foods which "nil up,"
but which do not mnko too much
heat. So mo of those filling or bulky
foods nro lettuco, cucumbers, celery,
spinach, asparagus, cabbage, cauli
flower, beets, onions, carrots, pars
nips, squash, pumpkins nnd tomntocs.
Starchy foods, llko potatoes, should
bo well cooked.
Some raw foods, such ns fruits nnd
salads hnvo things in thorn that nro
good for you. Thcso things nro in
soma cases lost in cooking. For this
reason, you should cat somo raw
foods each day.
Somo foods, such as potatoes and
fish should not bo eaten raw.

Why We Are Opposing A
Government Armor Plant
To Ike People:
Somo peoplo soy that tho very fact that tho Bethlehem Steel Company is so aggressively
lighting tiio proposal to build n Government armor plant is conclusive proof that tho Company
is seeking to ussuro for itself tho "vast profits" derived from private manufacture.
The fact is thut nrmor muking is the least profitable feature of slccl manufacture.
The reason we oppose a Government plant is very simple. It is this:
Even though Micro is but little profit in tho muking of armor, wo havo invested over
$7,000,000 in our armor plant;
That plant is useless for any other purpose; if a Government plant is built tho useful
ness of our plunt is destroyed.
It would be good business for us to make nrmor for the Govcrn
ment at imv price over and above the actual shop cost, KATIIKK
Wo do not seek to save big profits; our purpose is very frankly to save our armor
plant itself built solely for the use of tho Government from going to tho scrap heap.
To ?o that, -wo are nrennrcd to agree for nny period to nny terms of manufacture
vhlch the Federal Trade Commission shall say absolutely protects the Government
of the United States.
