Here’s the exciting article you’ve all been waiting for!
Honestly, I couldn’t even work up the interest to OCR anything but the intro. I feel like the designers at Woman’s Day used this feature to show the world just how many different fonts they had.

Pick up a piece of Sandwich glass and you hold in your hand a piece of America’s past. Lacy loveliness, satisfying design, glowing color are all part of its attraction, but it has historic appeal as well. Sandwich, the Cape Cod town which gave it its name, became important with the building of the glass factory there in 1825, but it was never an industrial town. Sandwich glass was the creation of people living in what was then, as it is now, an enchanting little New England village: the men made it, their wives and daughters decorated it, their sons Carried wood for the furnaces.

Give an Old West Chuck-Wagon Party
“Go West” Invitations
Have your party in the wide-open spaces of your own back yard, with all the Western atmosphere you can muster. Even the invitations can have a “Go West” appeal for 7- to 11-year-olds if they’re made this way: Paste brown wrapping paper onto thin cardboard; from it cut out a wagon like that above. From plain cardboard, cut out a wheel; sew it to the wagon, using a button as a hub. At the opposite end of the wagon, punch a hole; run yarn or twine through the hole; then tie it in place. On the wagon, write the rhyme, place and time of party, etc.
New Condiment Tastes Like Meat (Apr, 1931)
This substance is used all over the place, but is more notable for when it is not used. All you have to do is look at the menu of any Chinese restaurant from the last twenty years.
New Condiment Tastes Like Meat
A WHITE powder that tastes like the juice of red meat yet can be eaten by the strictest vegetarian, since it has no trace of meat in it but is made from the gluten of flour, is announced by A. D. Little, Inc., Boston chemical engineers, as increasing in popularity in Japan and China and as now being introduced into the United States. It is a chemical called sodium glutamate made by boiling gluten from wheat flour for hours with strong hydrochloric acid, neutralizing with soda and allowing the resulting salt to crystallize. There is obtained a fine white powder resembling baking soda which keeps well and may be used in an ordinary shaker like salt.
