Lesson IX of the " Ten Lessons " gives a brief summary o-f tile
theory of 
nutrition as modified by recent research. Farmers' Bulletin 142 is more com-
prehensive though less recent and includes tables of composition, dietary
Stand- 
ards, etc. Farmers' Bulletin 808 is a simpler and much briefer statement
in 
accord with the reliable recent theories. " War Economy in Food"
gives 
practical suggestions and recipes for putting the Food Administration's pro-
gram into practice in the home. Certain statements in this have been modified
by later rulings. The United States Food Leaflets are extremely simple, four-
page leaflets including recipes for inexpensive dishes.
