At present the food is being distrib-

Dr. Reeves taught biology at the
Ginling College for Women at Nan-
king, the president of which is Dr.
Y. F. Wu, who received her doctor's
degree in zoology at the University
of Michigan about fifteen years ago.
She explained that a common Chi-
nese food is made from soy bean curd,
and served for dinner several times
a week. It is, she believes, the only
common complete vegetable protein
food known. There are ten amino
acids which are vital to the building
of body cells, and while Americans
usually eat a variety of foods to gain
their necessary food value, the Chi-
nese find them all in the single food.
Experiments With Flavors
As a result Dr. Reeves has been
preparing the curd in her laboratory.
and experimenting with various fla-
vorings which she believes would suit
American taste.
Since the protein is soluble in
water, the Chinese soak the soybeans
