were favorites of former generations.
Times have changed radically. Col Colleges
leges Colleges and clubs have been 'established for the
express purpose of determining just which baking method
and baking materials are best.
Many domestic scientists devote their
lives to research and experimental work. They
are constantly testing food. products. They conduct exhaus exhaustive
tive exhaustive comparative tests. They accept and endorse only such
methods and baking processes as have been found superior
through scientific measurement of merit. These decisions
are given wide publicity. The result is that the housewife of
today produces more wholesome and perfect bakings at less
cost than ever before.
I have conducted many experiments
and have investigated experiments conducted by
scores of other domestic scientists. My own work and the
decisions handed down by other pure food specialists and
domestic scientists- bring out the evidence that the over overwhelming
whelming overwhelming majority employ and advocate the use of one special
brand of baking powder which proves once more the old
saying that "there is only one best,
I know that this baking powder has
won its popularity among experts on merit
alone. Because I know that they show no partiality. To ob obtain
tain obtain their approval a product must possess superiority. And
that superiority must cover every phase df baking powder

Finally it must be a baking powder that is economical in
both cost and use.
Calumet Baking Powder is the one
baking powder that has won the verdict of
superiority and the hearty s endorsement of expert domestic
scientists who like myself have proved Calumet's super super-excellence
