The Iowa Homemaker

Table of Contents

Three guesses as to what is the most popular food served at the Memorial Union. No, it's not ice cream, apple pie, or roast beef - it's corn meal mush! Perhaps Iowa State faculty and students are cooperating with the Homemakers' Corn Club in doing their bit to aid the state by consuming corn, perhaps it is merely an economy measure, or perhaps it's because they're especially fond of corn meal mush; anyway, it is impossible to keep enough of this food on the counter to supply the call for it, though two to three gallons are prepared for a meal. Corn meal mush is served every day at one meal besides breakfast, alternately at noon and in the evening on successive days, and a fifty-pound sack of corn meal is on the weekly order list.
