Four Food Groups
The United States is a very nutrition-conscious nation. TV commercials, magazine advertisements, newspaper items, family and neighbors continually talk of
calories, vitamins, polyunsaturated fats and protein. When
engulfed by so much propaganda, some of which is biased,
the average individual with little or no nutritional education may be at a loss for a basic guide to food selection.
There is a simple and sensible guide to nutritious eating: the Four Food Groups. The person following this
guide is protected from faddish and unbalanced diets. All
foods have been placed into one of the four groups depending on their nutrient content. By choosing different
foods day by day from each group and including at least
the minimum servings recommended an individual will receive all needed nutrients.
Minimum Servings

Bread and Cereal Group
(Whole grain or enriched products)
The Four Food Groups are the foundation for a good
diet. This guide can be used for reducing if skim milk is
used and low calorie selections are made from the other
groups. A growing or very active person needs more calories than are furnished by the minimum servings listed.
These additional needs are best satisfied by eating more
servings of the groups and including some fats and desserts as body weight permits.

President's Last Report From the Far East
Indonesia, Land of Millions, Needs the Message of Christ
The fascinating and interesting nation of Indonesia is made up of thousands of islands. This
group of islands is divided into two union mission conferences—the West and East Union Missions.
In the West Indonesian Union Mission the main islands are Java, Sumatra, Nusa Tenggara group,
West New Guinea and part of Borneo. This is divided into eight local missions with a population
of more than ninety million people of whom about eighty million are Mohammedans.
The headquarters of our work is in Djakarta the second largest city in the Far East. This is on
the island of Java which has about 1000 persons per square mile, making it one of the most densely
populated areas on earth. The union offices are located on the fourth and fifth floors of the evangelistic center and this is located on a main thoroughfare in a busy modern part of the city.
It was my privilege to speak to the union staff at worship one morning and also on Sabbath
morning to the church that meets in the auditorium of the center.
The trip I made to Bandung was by vehicle and is a scenic ride going over a mountain pass.
The terraced rice paddies of Java are a delight to behold and almost have a manicured look as if
they were placed there for their beauty alone. At Bandung are located ou'r publishing house and
sanitarium and hospital; nearby is our college. Additions were being made to the sanitarium and
hospital and to the college. The boys' dormitory at the college is a lovely functional building in
which a large chapel also serves as the meeting place for the church.
In this union mission with over twenty-two thousand members only eleven families and four
single workers are from overseas. All the rest of the workers are national.
The headquarters for the East Indonesian Union are at Menado on the island of Celebes
and is quite a long distance from Djakarta. In a small area of northeast Celebes we have a large
Seventh-day Adventist membership. The largest hall in Menado—outside of a theater—was engaged
for the meeting where I spoke to a large group of our believers.
Since the union was organized only a few years ago a college has been located in North Sulawesi near Menado and has been giving work on the junior college level. This school is located in a
choice location. To the north is the picturesque Mount Klabat and to the south the beautiful Tondano River valley.
In another part of the Celebes is the city of Makasar. It is a Mohammedan stronghold. A
couple years ago the fanatical Moslems tried to burn down our church. We have a fine group of believers in this place. Most of the members in the church where I preached two nights are Chinese.
The last night I showed pictures—part of them of our work in the Central Union Conference.
In Indonesia there are still many unentered villages where no evangelistic meetings have
been held. In fact there are many unentered islands. The Lord has promised. that the gospel will
go to every nation, kindred, tongue and people. The Lord expects us to work and give as though
everything depended on us. If we give of the full measure of our ability and dedication then He will
step in with His wonder-working power and do what we can't accomplish. By His might and
power, "He will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness."
