Sugar Substitutes.
If you feel that you cannot use
sugar in ail of the canning recipes
given here, even with your extra
canning ration, here are the rules
for substitutions:
If you are using a bottled fruit
pectin recipe, you may substitute
2 cups light corn syrup for 2 cups
of the sugar. Do not use more than
2 cups of corn syrup in any recipe,
however, as this will give unsatis
factory results.
In a powdered fruit pectin recipe,
you may use 1 cup light corn syrup
for each cup of sugar omitted. But,
do not try to use all corn syrup in
the recipe instead of sugar. You
may substitute corn syrup for only
% the sugar required. If, for exam
ple, the recipe calls for 6 cups of
sugar altogether, you may use 3
cups of light corn syrup, but you
must also use 3 cups of sugar.

FUNNY how you could think of
so much in so short a space
of time. Yet the whole con
versation ran through Emery
Folsom's mind in the seconds before
the ball spiralled down, plumped
against his chest, and he was away.
Folsom could hear the two voices
even now. “Oh, sure,” the first
voice had said. “Oh, sure, Folsom’s
good all right. He’d be a star half
back if he could take it.”
"You mean,” said the second
voice, "that he’s yellow?”
“It’d be more kind to say the
kid’s cautious.” The first voice
broke into a short laugh. "Yeah,
cautious. Afraid he’ll spoil the looks
of his pan. There's a girl they say.”
“Folsom's away!" The shout
came echoing down from the stands
in a thunderous roar. But Emery
didn’t hear it. He had too much
else to occupy his mind There were
two men in the field ahead. The
Allenton safety man and another,
Mac Piper, the half back. Emery
was charging at Mac like a freight
Funny how you thought of
things at times like this. Yel
low, eh? They thought he was
afraid of getting bunged up be
cause his girl wouldn’t like his
looks? They thought he had the
makings of a great star if he
weren’t yellow?
Yellow! You couldn’t say anything
much worse about a man. And
Emery was prideful and sensitive,
too. This was his first year on the
varsity. And reaching the varsity
had been the culmination of years
of dreaming and hoping and making
himself fit. And now that he was
there they thought him yellow!
Did they think he was afraid of
being bunged up because his girl
then wouldn’t like his looks?
They all thought it You could see
it in their faces when they looked at
him. They were too decent—or
afraid, to accuse him openly. But
despite the fact they thought him
yellow they admitted he was fairly
good. That's why Coach Murray
kept him on the squad.
Mac Piper swung in from the
right Emery veered. Mac's arm
tried to encircle his thigh. Emery’s
right hand shot out and Mac fell
away, rolling over and over. Emery
was away again, cutting toward the
sideline in a race to beat the safety
Next year, he was thinking, next
year there’ll be someone to take my
place. I won’t even be allowed on
the varsity, because they think I’m
yellow—unless I prove that I’m
The safety man was going to beat
Emery to the sidelines He could
see that at a glance. Anyhow the
sideline was too dangerous a place
to risk a fracas. He might be
thrown out of bounds.
Emery stopped in his tracks,
swung toward midfield. The safety
man was taken wholly by surprise.
Emery had gained a few feet be
fore the Allenton back could shift
his course. Even so, Emery knew
he couldn't gat by.
The stands were wild. Were
they calling him yellow for try
ing to avoid contact with the
safety man? Well, contact was
Inevitable. For they weren’t
two feet apart now. The safety
man was coming at him from
the left.
Too late Emery remembered that
he shouldn't have permitted an at
i tack from his left. Too late. The
safety man had hold of his left arm.
Emery winced and wanted to
scream. But he didn't He kept
moving. Three steps, dragging the
safety man along with his left arm.
Sharp pains were shooting up into
his shoulder. Specks were dancing
before his eyes. No use. He was
going to faint
Vaguely he knew that he was fall
ing. The ground came up and
knocked the remaining conscious
ness from his brain. He lay there,
with the safety man sprawled out
beside him, still clutching his left
arm. And above the thunder of an
insane mob of fans the starter’s gun
boomed a denouement to the drama
When Emery finally regained con
sciousness, he found himself lying
on a table in the locker room. He
was partly undressed, and a
trainer was rubbing his legs. Coach
Murray was standing on one side
of the table, and Ernie Little, the
Morrow captain, on the other side.
"You played a great game, Fol
som," the coach was saying. "I’m
proud to have you on the squad, for i
a fact."
we re all proud, Folsom,” Ernie
Little grinned. "How d'yuh feel?”
Emery smiled faintly. Why
couldn’t they be honest? Why
couldn’t they tell him they thought
him yellow, and be done with it?
“Can’t blame you chaps for being
a little sore,” he said. "Losing the
game like I did.”
“Losing hell!” Ernie Little ex
ploded. “You were across the line
when Piper dragged you down.”
Emery grinned. That was a little
better. He said: "Well, that’s fine.
Glad we won." Pause. "Listen,
Coach, I been thinking about next
year. Is there going to be a chance ;
for me?”
Coach Murray seemed a little
startled. He saw an anxious, I
pathetic look in Emery’s eyes and
swallowed hard. “Chance for you? i
Say, I’m counting on you for next
year more than any three men in
the squad. I guess you’re still a
little goofy from that fall, Folsom.”
Emery wet his lips. “Well—then
you chaps don't think I’m yellow
any more?”
“Yellow?” Coach Murray and
Ernie Little suddenly exchanged
looks. “Say, who’s been talking to
you? Who told you that?”
"Why—why no one. That is, I
overheard some—”
Coach Murray swore. “And you
fell for that! Say, Folsom, you’re
green. That’s an old gag. Some of
the boys sized you up, decided you ,
had a lot of pride and a lot more ;
potential ability than you were show
ing on the field. They framed that j
talk, fixed it so you'd overhear ’em
and get mad. They wanted you to
get out there in this last game of
the season and show folks you
weren’t yellow. Probably they had
some money up."
Framed. A trick! Emery
tried to grasp it and couldn’t.
Yet somehow, despite the ex
cruciating pain in his shoulder,
he felt suddenly happy. The
trainer was tugging at his Jer
sey. Emery let out a yelp of
pain. He couldn’t help it.
Coach Murray came around the
table, brushed the trainer aside, and
took hold of Emery’s arm. He
looked up, and Emery couldn’t re
member having seen such a look on
a man's face. His words were flat
and cold and hard.
"When did this happen, Folsom?”
Emery had difficulty in talking.
He thought he was going to faint
again. “Third—quarter. It—it didn’t
hurt much—then.”
Coach Murray swore horribly.
And there was a sudden stillness in
the locker room. Ernie Little’s face
was white. Finally he said, awed,
“And the kid had an idea they
thought he was yellow. So he played
through a quarter and a half and
made that last run with a broken
He stopped and Involuntarily
shuddered. He was thinking how it
must have felt when Piper pulled
Folsom down. And then he glanced
savagely toward the table. But
Emery had slipped once more into
unconsciousness, and there was a
smile on his lips.
Many Theories as to
Origin of Bock Beer
Not many German words are bet
ter known to the American public
than bock, meaning goat. This is
due to the fact that the bock beer
sign, decorated with the picture of
a goat, has been for many years
(forgetting the 13 black years) a
mildly festive feature of the Ameri
can spring. Baltimoreans have been
pleasantly aware of this season
al brew for some days now, although
there used to be a local tradition
that it wasn’t to be served until
Good Friday.
There are authorities who pretend
to trace the origin of bock beer back
to the 11th century, but nobody
really knows much about it. There
is even some disagreement as to
what it is. A vast amount of space
would be required merely to review
the various opinions handed down
by respectble historians and brew
masters, while to review the specu
lations of dreamers and folklorists
would be a lifelong task.
There are those, among them J.
P. Arnold, the author of “The Ori
gin and History of Beer and Brew
ing,” who hold to the Einbeck the
ory. to wit, that bock originated In
the ancient south German town of
that name, and that it was first
called einbeck, which became short
ened to beck and eventually changed
to bock. If this is true, then it was
the name that suggested the goat
as a symbol. Contrariwise, anoth
er account relates how, during a fa
mous outdoor drinking bout between
brewmasters near Munich, one of
the contestants was bowled over by
a runaway goat, to the merriment
of the spectators, who thereafter al
ways referred to the strong brew he
was drinking as bock.
Wanted to Be Mayor
U. S. Grant was our 17th Presi
dent, but what he really wanted to
be was mayor of Galena, 111. The
Peoria (111.) Transcript of January
20, 1864, disclosed that some of the
general's friends suggested to him
that he allow his name to go before
the national convention as a candi
date for President. Grant replied
that he aspired to only one office
When the war was over he wished to
return to Galena, run for mayor,
and if elected see that the sidewalk
running from his home to the rail
road station was repaired and kept
in good order.

H Saviors of the Flag
HEN a press dispatch carried
the news recently that an army
captain and three enlisted men had
braved heavy Japanese fire to re
store the American flag atop a 100
foot pole on siege-bound Corregidor,
it sent the editorial writers scurry
ing to their history books to look
up the name of a soldier who per
formed a similar heroic deed dur
ing the Revolution. So the story of
the defense of Fort Sullivan, during
the month of June, 1776, was told
again and once more Americans
were reminded of one of their
almost-legendary heroes.
He was Sgt. William Jasper and
beside his name in the annals of
America are now written, as “sa
viors of the flag,” the names of
Capt. Arthur E. Huff of St. Louis,
Mo., Corp. Louis A. Roark of Gyp
sum, Kan., and Privates Roy O.
Bailey of Kansas City, Mo., and Har
ley H. Leaird of Durant, Okla. For
their feat at Corregidor they were
awarded the silver star decoration.
What their fate has been is unknown
at the time this article is written,
for Corregidor no longer flies the
flag which they rescued. They may
be prisoners of the Japanese, or
they may have died gloriously in
that last batte, just as did Sergeant
Jasper in his last battle.
.lasner was born in South Carolina
about 1750 and
soon after the out
break of the Rev
olution enlisted as
a sergeant in the ,
Second South Car- {
olina regiment,
commanded by
Col. William
Moultrie. Early
in June. 1776, I
when a British I
land and naval '
force under Sir William Moultrie
Henry Clinton and
Admiral Sir Peter Parker appeared
off the Carolina coast to invest
Charleston, Moultrie was trying to
complete a fortress on Sullivan's is
land at the mouth of the harbor.
On the morning of June 28 five
ships of the British armada sailed
in close to the unfinished fort and
opened a furious Are. Moultrie
had only a limited supply of ammu
nition, so his return Are was very
light compared with that of the
enemy. In the midst of the bom
bardment a shot struck the staff
from which Aew the South Carolina
banner—a blue Hag, with a crescent
The Flag
moon in the up
per corner — and
it fell to the bot
tom of the ditch
outside the en
trenchments. A
great cheer went
up from the Brit
ish man - of - war'
when they saw
the patriots’ flag
go down.
But the next moment Sergeant
Jasper had sprung from an embra
sure, seized the flag, tore it from its
shattered staff and tied it on to the
staff of a sponge which he had been
wielding as he helped serve one of
the guns of the fort. Then he sprang
back to the parapet and. amid a hail
of enemy Are, supported it there un
til another flagstaff had been secured
to take its place. And above the roar
of the cannonade could be heard the
cheers of the Americans acclaiming
the sergeant’s deed!
AU day ttw battle raged fiercely
with the Americans conserving their
ammunition and making every shot
tell upon the hulls qi the rigging of
the British ships. Only one of the
guns of the fort having been dis
mounted, the enemy’s fire began to
slacken and that night the attack
was abandoned.
In recognition of his brave act.
Sergeant Jasper was presented by
Governor Rutledge of South Caro
lina with his own sword. The gov
ernor also offered him a lieutenant’s
commission but Jasper declined the
honor because he could neither read
nor write. However, Moultrie was
so impressed with his daring that he
gave the sergeant a roving com
mission and allowed him to select
six kindred spirits to carry out raids
against the British.
Jasper proved to be a successful
partisan leader. His daring career
came to an end on October 9,
1779. During the assault on the
Spring Hill redoubt in the attack on
Savannah by the American and
French forces, led by General Lin
coln and Admiral D’Estaing, Jasper
was mortally wounded while at
tempting to fasten the regimental
colors to the parapet. A square
in the city of Savannah and a county
in Georgia perpetuate his name.
William Moultrie, his command
ing officer, was destined to have a
longer and more distinguished ca
reer. In commemoration of his
bravery in defending Fort Sullivan,
the fort was later named Fort Moul
trie. Soon afterwards he was com
missioned a brigadier general in
the Continental army and placed in
charge of military affairs in Georgia
j and South Carolina where he repeat
edly distinguished himself in battle
against the British and Tories. In
April, 1779, he again saved Charles
ton from being captured by a British
force under General Prevost.
