The editor of the magazine ""What's New in Home Economics"" has prepared a manual and reference book for the housekeeper seeking to improve her efficiency which I, for one, shall secure on publication date. Chockablock with tips for saving foods, for preventing those minor accidents that wreck a meal, for substituting one ingredient for another on a scientific basis, for understanding why things go wrong and preventing them. Practical, imaginative, curious information along all lines:-breads, cakes, pastry, waffles, beverages, canning, condiments, storage of foods, dairy products, desserts, economy hints, eggs, fate, fruits, meats, salads, soups final sections on laundering, on cleaning, on care of equipment. Name the department -- and it is represented. A good backlog book for the careful housewife.
