cated by Prof. G. L. Teller of the Co

ing the third day's session of the Na

"The Instruction of a course in bak

Prof. Teller said. "In no other indus
try can Instruction of this kind bo
given more readily than in baking.
The tendency in baking is no longer

HOODLUMS ATTACK JEWS.
Victims of Riots In England are
Among Respected Townspeople.
London , Aug. 23. In the opinion of.
Jewish residents here , the riots at
Tredgar and other Welsh mining
towns were indirectly , if not directly ,
duo to the strike ferment and once
labor troubles have vanished , the pres
ent Jewish feeling will dlo a natural
death. Those who hold the opinion
are none the less anxious , because )
there are 100,000 Jewish residents In
London and many thousands In va
rious parts of the kingdom and the
Jews therefore have regarded them
selves as safe from persecution In
Great Britain. *
Newport , Monmouthshire , England ,
Aug. 23. The anti-Jewish rioting at
Tredgar and adjacent towns was al
most entirely the work of hoodlums
who have obtained a strong foothold
in those places because the forces of
police stationed there are small. The
Jews who suffered attacks wore among
the most respected townspeople and
they Indignantly deny the charge of
demanding high rents and BO far aa
can bo ascertained the complaints
against them of exacting exorbitant
prices are unfounded. }
