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.
