THE PER/NS JOURNAL For All Women A Nation-Wide Cooking Contest Winners to Get Cash Pries and Free Trip to New York OUSEWIVES, here's your chance for a free trip to New York and valuable cash prizes! A sea of recipes is about to sweep over the whole face of the United States and the national avoirdu- pois is threatened with a definite increase. This sea of recipes will emanate from the Women's Na- tional Recipe Competition to be held under the auspices of the Fifteenth Annual Women's Na- tional Exposition of Arts and In- dustries which is to be held in the Grand Central Palace in New York City from May 23 to May 29. The purpose of the competition is to develop the greatest possible number of menus consisting of foods prepared from canned pro- ducts, to the end that a book may ultimately be published which will enable the housewife to prepare a complete dinner from the supplies carried on her pantry shelves. Six Sectional Winners This contest is open to women and girls over sixteen years of age anywhere in the United States. Each contestant may sub- mlt as many complete menus as she wants, but all entries must be postmarked not later than midnight, May 17. There must be six recipes, each sufficient to serve from four to six persons, furnished with each menu. For the purposes of this competition the country has been divided lnto six large sections, and a three-day trip to New York with all expenses paid will be awarded to the winner of each section. Decision In May The six sectional winners, who will be notified by telegraph of their victories, will compete for cash prizes of $500, $250, $200, $150 and two of $100 on May 25 during the National Exposition at the Grand Central Palace, New York. Thus each sectional wln- ner is assured of a cash prize of at least $100 as well as the free trip to New York City. At this final contest the six finalists must prepare their prize.winning menus and recipes, and the winner will be awarded the proud title of 1936 National Champio of the Women's Exposition Cooking Con- test. Full information can be ob- tained about this competition by writing to the Fifteenth Annual Women's National Exposition of Arts and Industries, Grand Cen- tral Palace, 480 Lexington Ave- nue, New York. A Social Affair The committee of socially prom- inent women in charge of th competition includes among oth- ers Mrs. Oliver Harriman, Mrs, Adrian Iselin If, Mrs. Winthrop McKim, Mrs. Barber Larocque0 Mrs. Kenneth Castleman and Madame Queena Marie. At their instance, women's clubs, Campfire Girls, Girls Friendly Societies and others are actively participating by aiding in the distribution of rules blanks to their friends and neighbors. Those who desire may secure their blanks from their local chain or grocery store. If, by chance, your favorite store does not have blanks, the committee will gladly send you one. All For Women The Women's National Expo- sition of Arts and Industries has functioned for fifteen years for the purpose of advancing the in- terests of women, financial and otherwise, but it seems to have no regard for the masculine waist- line. However, the way to a man's heart is said to be through his stomach, and perhaps this is all a gigantic Leap Year conspiracy to advance the interests-of women in one of these "otherwise" ways.
