The front end page has a letter to the housewives of America from Joan Adams, Director, Kelvin Kitchen. Tips are organized into be efficiency-minded, cook with dispatch, make the minutes count, eliminate unnecessary steps, and simplify sewing. There is information on the electric freezer, nutritional value of food, some foods need cold and moisture, wartime demands on the homemaker, and better care of appliances means less repair.
