Famous Food Expert
To Conduct Feature
D EGINNING with this, issue
this paper is pleased to an
nounce a new series of articles
which we believe to be the
most original and up to date
food department in the country.
We wanted to offer a food
department that was live—in
teresting-different. We wanted
to get away from the usual
“ recipe column.” We believe
the women of this community
are primarily interested in food
in its relation to health, in its
effect on growing children. In
formation of this sort has usu
ally been too scientific to be
understood by the average per
son, but in this series it is pre
sented in clear, understandable
language and applied so that it
will fit the average household.
C. Houston Goudiss, famous
author, lecturer, and radio per
sonality, will conduct this de
partment each week. Many
housewives will want to make
scrapbooks of these articles.
