Just one evidence of the cooperation between the armed
and our vast industrial army a school for submarine ele
conducted at one General Electric factory.
1. Electricity is vital to the run
ning of every submarine. It does
an amazing variety of important
jobs, from turning the propeller to
cooking the coffee.
t. For that reason, there must be
well-trained electricians on every
underwater craft. At this school,
Navy electricians attend classes
taught by G-E engineers
3 . and go out into the
shops where they watch workmen
construct the same kind of elec
tric equipment that will some
day be put in their charge.
4. This is but one proof of the
thorough training which the U.S.
Navy gives its men, so that the
vital equipment of war will always
be ready for action.
General Electric believes that its first duty as a
good citizen is to be a good soldier.

HOW TO BE HAPPY
AND SAVE SUGAR
TOLD BY LEADER
People can't get as much sugar as
they would like. From a health
standpoint they don't need as much
as they normally get in fact, just
about half that amount. The logical
thing to do, therefore, is find ways
of making the sugar allowance give
a maximum personal satisfaction.
This is the way Lucy A. Case, ex
tension specialist in foods and nutri
tion at O. S. C, sizes up the present
It's no use to worry about exactly

are economizing on sugar by ending
the meal with a fruit salad or fresh
fruit, instead of with a dessert re
quiring more sugar.
In cake making, sugar may be
saved by omitting a frosting, or by
using a filling of a fruit mixture or
something else that does not take
ordinary sugar. Finally, if iced
drinks are used, they may be sweet
ened with a thin syrup much more
economically than with plain sugar.

The sugar allowance provided,
aside from that especially earmarked
for canning, can probably be used
to give most satisfaction in cooking
and baking. Even there, however,
other things can be used to substi
tute for it. Corn syrup and honey
may be used in many kinds of cook
ed foods, or even to sweeten break
The use of more dried fruits is a
sugar-conserving measure, as many
of them are almost sweet enough
without additional sugar. Raisins or
dried prunes added to certain dishes
will provide sweetening as well as
Dr. C. C. Chick and Miss Blanche fruit. Corn, carrots, and sweet po
tatoes are rich in their own sugar,
and will aid in providing a sweet
taste to meals.
Such deserts as custards, bread
puddings, and others made with a
large proportion of milk and eggs
need much less sugar than many
other desserts. Some home-makers
