Harris Home demonstration agent this is the question asked by some folks about famines living on Small incomes. When families receive a Small income their problem in managing that income is always greater and More problems come in making it go around. Unless one has gone through a stage of being in this situation it is sometimes hard for those whose incomes Are larger to understand this. Some of the recent surveys on families who Are struggling with Small incomes show that the Cost of housing takes a very High Cut out of their weekly wage. This includes rent heat and Light. Those families who live outside of Large communities May find lower costs for housing but then transportation to and from work and school takes another big slice out of the weekly income. Another big bite and maybe for some the biggest bite of All is the Cost of food. When food rent heat lights and transportation Are taken care of there is Little of any left for clothing medical care insurance recreation and savings. In fact most of the families on a Low income would say Quot savings what s that a the Prospect for these families improving their situation lies in i. Increasing the wage earner s skill so that he or she can earn More 2. Improving the managerial ability of the family to use what it has in the Best possible Way. To accomplish one or both is a Long laborious process. These two facts fit aay Twenty acres More or less 24 everybody can bake bread by Carlo Wolter just before Winter set in we heard about an electric Kitchen Range for Sale on a Back Road farm. The gravel Road we followed soon turned into dirt and finally was no More than a rutted Trail too narrow to turn around. It wound through dense Woods and just As we wondered whether we had taken the wrong turn it wriggled around a curve and there was the farm. A myopic youth stuck his head into the car and pushing his ice cube thick glasses higher up on his nose sputtered Quot you want to buy a pig a Quot no a said Charles Quot we want to see the Quot the stove a repeated the youth. Quot which one there s a dozen of Mem in that he pointed a thumb toward a Large ramshackle building half of its rickety door hanging agape from a single hinge. Slowly we waded across a dung covered Yard. In the barn were barrels barbed wire tires harnesses palls fuel tanks sap buckets kerosene stoves High backed Gas stoves round and Square Wood stoves Coal stoves and several electric ranges carelessly scattered about. Chickens crackled from the rafters and the stoves. We worked our Way to an electric Range from whose oven a Hen squawked Wardingly. Quot this does no to look too bad a said Charles Quot if it Quot it works a said a withered old woman from the doorway. Quot Only it Hasni to been used Quot How much do you want for it a i asked trying to escape a resentful Hen pecking at my legs. Quot Weill a hesitated the old woman Quot i done to know. What s it Worth to yes Quot Weill a i wavered Quot i done to know. You name a Quot no no. Go ahead. You make me an i Don t remember How we finally arrived at the figure. But we carted the stove away for $30, under protest from a Hen in the oven. While Charles and the youth stowed the stove into old chariots rumble seat i noticed that the farm had no electricity. Quot How do you know it works a i asked the woman again who was busily counting her Money. Quot of it works a she said wetting her Finger Quot of it does to bring it hours of willpower Elbow grease bleach steel Wool and Cleanser uncovered a shiny White Range not Modem but in perfect condition. To me it was a jewel. Quot now you can make lots of pumpkin pies a said Charles smacking his lips. But he did no to know that i make pumpkin pie or any other pie for that matter my first experiments with baking pies were calamitous. The crusts shrunk like Woolen sweaters in hot water and were As Tough As bark. The pumpkin filling cracked like dried mud and had the consistency of Taffy. It took Many tries and Many pumpkins until i could concoct an edible pie. Quot now a said Charles Quot that you have Learned How to bake pie you can bake bread. Everybody in the country knows How to bake Quot i done to i protested. Charles beamed. Quot i can. Its easy. There a nothing to it my Mother made the Best homemade bread in Quot Fine a i said. Quot you can have the Honor of making the Best in he did no to need much coaxing. And it Wasny to Long before he was dusting the Kitchen with flour and punched and kneaded dough with an Quot ill show you my lamentation about the mess brought nothing but banishment until cleanup time. A delicious Aroma spread through the House while i waited and my Mouth watered for a taste of fresh baked bread. At last Charles called me Back. Quot smell it a he boasted holding a hot Golden loaf of bread under my nose. Quot have you Ever seen anything More it looked indeed like a Magazine cover. But when we tried to eat it even the sharpest knife Cut it. It was As hard As Rock. Quot guess its my turn a i laughed. Quot i can do no unlike Charles who had guessed at the ingredients i followed a recipe. But the smug feeling of superiority soon disappeared As i watched the results. Whereas Charles dough had stayed in the pan mine walked All Over the Side of the bowl spilled Over the counter top Slid Down the Cabinet front and gathered in a Pool on the floor. What was left baked to a consistency of rubber with More holes than Swiss cheese. Even the Birds would t eat it. They were As relieved As i when the weekly route Breadman took Over.
