The kind of breakfast you need
C p nds very largely upon your age,
and how active you are. If you arc*
an adult of sedentary habits and j
have ample noon meals, your break-
fast may be very light; fruit, some
kind of l road and a beverage. Or i
it may be light; fruit, cereal, bread-j
stuff, beverage. If you are doing i
harder work or take little food at I
noon, it may be wise to increase it •
to medium; fruit, ceral, eggs, bread-j
stuff, beverage. Or if you do very
heavy muscular work, the breakfast
may be heavy; fruit, cereal, eggs,'

For the child the light or medium
breakfast is best. Children are very
active. They need a good break-
! fast for this reason and also because
just growing takes a lot of energy.
A child should never be allowed to
go to school without a good break-
Here aer some good breakfast
menus for children—and for. adults.
Orange, oatmeal with cream, glass
of milk, 2 slices of toast with butter.
Baked apple, bran flakes with
cream, cup t>f cocoa, whole wheat-
Shredded wheat with peaches and
cream, glass of milk, graham muffins
Wheatena with dates, cream, soft
boiled egg, toast and butter, glass of
Stewed prunes, cream of wheat,
cream, bran muffins and butter,
Half a grapefruit, Ralston’s, cream,
cornmeal muffins, butter and milk.
Apple sauce, whole wheat bread
toasted, scrambled eggs, slice of
bacon and milk.
Here is a good receipe for bran
1 muffins made with buttermilk. If
I you have no buttermilk, use sweet
milk, and substitute 4 level teaspoons
baking powder for the soda.
Four tablespoons of any good
shortening, 1-4 cup sugar, 1 cup but-
termilk, 1 egg beaten, 1 1-2 cups
crumbled bran, 1 cup white flour
sifted with 1 level teaspoon baking
soda and 1 level teaspoon salt.
Cream shortening and sugar to-
gether, add buttermiik, then egg and
then bran and flour with soda and
salt. Fill muffin pans three fourths
full and bake in a moderate oven a-
bout 20 minutes.
Do you know that one egg will sup-
ply about one-tenth of the iron your
body needs for a day ? There are
many interesting ways to cook eggs.
Did you ever try baking them?
Put one teaspoon of melted butter
into each individual baking dish,
break one or two eggs into each dish.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper and
place a small piece of butter on each.
Bake in a Jmaderate oven until the
eggs are firm.
Tomato sauce may be poured over
the eggs before they are baked. Or
the eggs may bb covered with white
sauce and grated cheese.

fers certain features heretofore re-
garded as marks of distinction on
the costliest cars. These are made
possible at Chevrolet’s amazingly re-
duced prices only because volume
production results in definite econ-
omies and because Chevrolet now,
as always, passes these savings on to
the buyer in the form of added value-
No other car, as low in price, offers
such features as fish-tail modeling,
full-crown one-piece fenders, bullet-

\ NY one who has ever motored through
f\ the quulnt sleepy towns of New
England has fnllen In love with the small
houses that abound in that section
of the country—neat, white, unpreteu
tlous and with a touch of reserve aboui
yiem. Just such a house Is the one
pictured here. It is equally adaptable
for town or country, and by merely shift-
'lng the living and entrance porches around can be built on a wide or nar-
row lot without spoiling it architecturally.
The house Is sturdily built and has. an exterior of wood siding except
for the unusual stucco panels that start at the level of the second floor win-
dows. The roof Is of stained shingles, pref-
erably moss green, in keeping with the
window shutters. A house of this com-
pact style is very easy to heat, especially
when the specifications call for Insulation
throughout with celotex, which prevents
heut leakage, and keeps the house cool in
The living and dining rooms are here
combined Into one large room flooded with
light by windows on three sides. The two
bedrooms on the second floor each have
double exposure and an extra large closet
In which a window may be placed.
