    Germany Prepares for the 19.36 Olympic Games
MOKK than half a million spectators can sit com
fortably in this enormous sports arena, the
greatest concentration of stadia, gymnasia, fields and
halls ever constructed In one single unit. Nine tenths
of all the activities of the next Olympic games will
be centered here. But it will not take more than
thirty minutes to fill or empty the great space, with
the new transportation facilities created especially for
the purpose. The center bowl Is the Olympic stadium.
On Its opposite side, looking In the picture like an
open double-winged door, Is the swimming stadium.
The large space to the left of the Olympic stadium Is
the assembly field, serving also ns polo grounds. It
covers more than twenty four acres and accommo
dates 400,000 participants and spectators. On its left
side rises the “Fuehrerturm" (Leader's tower) from
which the Olympic bell will ring In the games. The
oval near the lower left-hand corner, above the rail
road cut, Is the equestrian stadium. Opposite, In the
midst of the wooded section in the upper left-hand
corner. Is the Dietrich Ecknrt open-air stage. To the
right of It, the small round space, Is the dancing
arena. At the distant right, there Is a group of gym
nasia, pools and training buildings, with the “House
of German Sports” and an auditorium for 1JSOO. On
the extreme right, straight over from the big center
howl, are parking spaces for ten thousand automobiles.
Just beyond is the hockey stadium. In the lower right
hand corner Is the railroad station “Relchssportfeld.”
An underground railway station, also called “Itelchs
sportfeld," Is opposite the hockey stadium. There also
are basketball Helds and recreation halls.

and things might have turned out
quite differently and not at all bo
But Danny's wits are sharp and
he has learned to use them quickly.
There Is nothing like danger to
sharpen one’s wits aud Danny, as
you know, is In danger u great part
of the time. As he sat there peep
ing out of the little hole In the bank
of the Smiling Pool where he had
sought safety he was surrounded by
danger and he knew It. It wasn’t
safe to leave and It wasn’t safe to
remain. Could anyoue possibly be
in worse fix?
Be was doing his best to think of
some way out of his troubles, when
he saw the Big Pickerel which had
been hiding under some Illy pads,
swim out In the middle of the Smil
ing Pool and there stop close to
the surface as If to enjoy the sun.
Not two minutes later there wus a
sharp swishing sound In the air
Danny looked up to see a dark form
shooting out of the sky. It was
Plunger the Osprey, often callec
Kish llavvk. His great claws were
spread out to seize some one and
that some one was the IUg Pickerel
With a great splash Plunger
struck the water and disappeared
right where the Big Pickerel had
been a second before. Ornndfather
Krog dived front his big green pad
with a startled “Chug arum I” Snap
[ter the Turtle sank from sight.
Billy Mink disappeared. Reddy
Kox stood up on Ids hind legs the
better to see.
With a quick glance up to see
that Redtail the Hawk was not
watching, Danny darted out of his
hiding place and scurried nlong the
bank of the Smiling Pool toward
the Laughing Brook. He knew' that
for a few minutes the attention ot
everybody would he fixed on Plung
er. He ho|ted that no one would
notice a scared little Meadow
Mouse. He beard the water fall
ing from Plunger and the beating
of his great wings as he rose In
the air, but he didn’t even glance
to see If Plunger had caught the
Big Pickerel. He simply made those
four little legs of his go as fast as
they possibly could until he reached
a tangle of matted grass, under
which lie crept, his oenrt going pit
a-pat, plt-a-pat. Not till then did
he look back.

Womans Eyes
WHEN a well-known clubwoman
spoke recently, on “Making a
go of marriage,” she said: “Let nei
ther husband nor wife strive to be
the dominating person in the house
hold. A victory for either in this
respect means failure for the part
And that is true. The emptiest
victory in the world is the victory
of being the boss; and particularly
in marriage. Not only does it mean
failure for the partnership if there
is a “boss"—it means the death of
love—the kind of love that counts.
For we can hardly be “in love”
with anyone we have to be afraid
of, from whom it Is expedient to
conceal something, some one who
by getting his or her own way,
“puts one over” on us. We can
hardly await that person’s home
coming with joy, or in the case of
a man, look forward with joy to
going home to such a person.
We can’t have that warm feeling
which means love and affection and
pleasure in being in a person’s com
If we stop to think about it, that
must be obvious to any of us. And
yet people don’t stop to think, ap
parently. For constantly, around
us, we see going on between hus
bands and wives that struggle to
get their own way—to be “boss.”
They do not think of it so much
in terms of being “boss,” of course;
they are just impelled to get their
own way. And they get it—or the
one with the most dominating tem
perament and the strongest consti
tution does. And both lose.
If people would only stop to think
about it, I believe in nine cases out
of ten they would conclude that the
thing in which they got their own
way wasn’t really worth making
such a fuss about, and was cer
tainly not worth the high price it

new find was made by Deputy Sheriff Worth Bagley, and his uncle, J. G.
Bagley. It Is located In Imperial county, California, near the Riverside
county line, and the Bagleys exjiect soon to begin mining operations
there. Bentonite is used in the refining of gasoline and oil. being more
eflicient than dlatomaceous; also It is used as the base for printers' ink

Hot Breads and Fine Cakes
Baking Powder Has Important Part in tlie Preparation
of These Typical American Foods, hut It
Must Be Employed Wisely.
Hot breads and fine cakes are typ
ical American foods. Modern cook
tiooks, magazines and newspapers de
vote much space to directions for
their preparation. Cook books of an
o.den time, however, furnish few rec
ipes for these dainties because ‘‘yeast
powder,” as baking powder was first
known, is a comparatively modern in
vention. In these olden recipes we
find directions for the use of soda and
cream of tartar or vinegar, molasses
or sour milk. Modern recipes use the
two latter ingredients with soda, but
most of them add ns well a little bak
ing powder in order to overcome the
inconsistency of the varying acids.
Ilaking powders, of which we have
three types, are all made of a soda
base, but the acid, which is the oth
er principal ingredient, differs. The
three types of baking powder are
known as combination, phosphates
and tartrates. To be successful with
a recipe which calls for baking pow
der you should know what type of
baking powder you are using. The
phosphates and tartrates demand
more in comparison to the amount of
flour than does the combination. Ex
periments mnde at the University of
Chicago show that in most recipes
about two-thirds as much combination
baking powder should be used in most
recipes. Other experiments show that
for muffins, biscuits and cakes, ex
cepting where extra eggs are used,
the proportion of one teaspoonful to
a cupful of flour gives generally good
results. In using phosphate or tar
trate baking powders, the proportion
for cakes is generally one and a half
teaspoonfuls to a cupful of flour.
For biscuits one and a half
to two teaspoonfuls to a cupful of
flour, according to the type of crumb
you wish. For absolutely accurate
results, it is a very good idea to use
(lie tested recipes supplied by the
companies which manufacture each
type of baking powder.
The use of too much baking pow
der produces a porous, coarse, dry
crumb with a cracked, sticky crust.
A great excess will make a cake fall.
If too much baking powder is used,
your product may have a slightly bit
ter taste. Too little baking powder
produce a heavy cake, which has
a rather bready consistency.
When sour cream is used, we par
ticularly need linking powder ns well
as soda, unless we use another acid,
beenuse there is not so much acid in
sour cream ns there is in sour milk.
It takes one-quarter of a teaspoonful
of soda to produce leaven with one
cupful of sour milk, hut a cupful of
sour cream needs only a quarter of a
teaspoonful of soda to neutralize the
acid, and we do not get so large a
proportion of gas to raise our mix
ture. Because chocolate has a slight
acid reaction many recipes for this
favorite cake demand a small amount
of soda, which produces a dark color
and makes a tender cake. Let me
warn you that an over-use of soda
produces an unpleasant flavor and a
slightly soapy texture.
The Improvement in the prepared
cake and biscuit mixtures is largely
due to tlie scientific combination of
the baking powder as well as to the
good quality of flour, shortening and
other Ingredients used. One of the
prepared gingerbreads on the market
claims to have been developed from
the recipe used by Mary Washington,
whose son provided a birthday worthy
of an annual celebration.
