Scald milk, and pour into large mixing bowl.
Add brown sugar, shortening and salt, and stir until shortening melts.
Stir in 2 cups luke-warm water, and cool until whole mixture is lukewarm.Dissolve white sugar in 1 cup lukewarm water, sprinkle yeast over it and let stand 10 minutes at about 85 °F.
Stir yeast mixture with fork, add to lukewarm milk mixture and stir again.
Beat in whole wheat flour gradually; then add all-purpose flour.
Turn dough onto floured board, and knead 8—10 minutes.
Shape into smooth ball.
Place dough in lightly greased bowl, and grease top a little to prevent crust from forming.
Cover, and allow to rise in warm place until almost doubled in bulk, about 1 1/4 hours.
Punch down, and turn out again on floured board.
Cut into 4 equal portions, and form each into a smooth ball.
Cover balls, and allow to rest about 15 minutes before shaping into loaves.
Place loaves in greased 9" x 5" x 3" loaf pans; grease tops lightly, cover and let rise 1 hour or until nearly doubled in bulk.
Bake at 425°F.
20—25 minutes; then re-duce heat to 375°F. and continue baking 25 minutes longer.
