Miss Bou'on Discusses tho Food
Question at Oonvocation-
Mentnl Life Dependent
on Nourishment.
M iss Ronton, adjunct professor in
chemistry, addressed t lie students of
the imiversilv at coiivnctaion ester
day morning upon the tood question.
She pointi d" out a tew means hv which
everyone might receive Ijenelit.
Food, "said Miss Ronton, "is that
which enahles us to pertorm tin; I unc
tions of life. And there are three
classes or tin? functions, mental,
physical, and spiritual. The first
class, physical lood, is an absolute
necessity for maintaining both, tho
mental and spiritual. Some people
exist on a very small amount of poor
tood. This does not lead to practical
results. Here m the university cer
tain opportunities come to every stu
dent, and he cannot make the most
ol them without a certain amount of
good nourishing food. Miss Ronton
mentioned the diet of the foot-ball
teams which leads to the best physi
cal results It has not been so scien
tifically demonstrated, howeer, that

'Furthermore," said Miss Houton,

and that Is why I believe- this is an
important matter for your considera

Miss Houton discussed the. various
food principles, motioning five classes.
The first three are nutritious, the
others non-nutritious, namely minerals
and water. As a rule people do not
drink enough water. The first class of
nutritious food, the nitrogenous, builds
up the tissues which are wearing
away every day. Auumg the common
nitrogeous foods aie lean meat, eggs,
cheese and nuts. The second class,
the carbo-hydrates give heat and en
ergy, the lats give reserve force to
the body.
Varying conditions, according to
age, health, occupation and climatic
conditions require different propor
tions of the various food-elements.
Hut there is a certain law, in gener

should lie in the same

condition, under-nutrition, is found
among the poor, tho lazy or the very

are over economical either in time
or monqy matters. Women are apt

In over-eating ono gets too much

to eat what we know is giod for us"

In a hotly contested game of bas
ket ball the sophomores defeated the
high school team last night by a
score ol 20 to i.'l. Dr. Condra acted
as refereo and Ferguson and Nelson
as umpires. The gamo was very much
on the order of football but perhaps
all the more entertaining on that
account for every one played his
best, enthusiasm Increasing as the
gamo progressed.
The high school was well lepresent

rang with cheers when its team
made a goal or the sophomores failed
in an attempt.
