Who Hunk in Studies
As a result of the failure In studies of
a. .number of cadet commissioned officers
.ritTthe,- high school at tho close of tho
first school semester, which has Just
been completed, the question has been
brought up again whether such officers
should bo deprived of all recognition of
their rank in the regiment. The present
school ruio Is that any officer who
"funks" In any subject, automatically
loses his office and does not receive a
military diploma of any nort, as are ac
credited to tho officers who at graduation
In June, have curried all the work under
taken by them.
The question has been raised both by
Captain l' G. StriUlnger, commandant of
the regiment, and Principal Mclluch, to
gether with a number of tho officers a
to tho Justice of granting military diplo
mas to the men who step Into tho offices
made vacant by those who fall in mid
year, and the denying ot a diploma of
any grade to the men who, after having
drilled for three and a half years and
obtained an office fall in February of
their senior year.. Captain StrlUlngcr has
declared that he feels that a diploma of
some sort should be given those who
fall; stating the length of service until
the failure. Ho Is desirous of an entire
reorganization of the system of awarding
the certificates. Under tho new plan the
cadet officers would receive their com
mlsrions at the tlmo of promotion and
retain their certificates in rase of failure
wjth, tho date ot the samo marked
thereon. Tho matter will In all proba
bility be put to tho school board for con
sideration In tho near future.

Judgo A. I Sutton of the district court,
In the Martha L4sk mandamus proceed
ings brought to compel the Bouth Omaha
city council to award her the contract
for supplying meals to the city prison
ers, threw a safeguard, around the pris
oners who might bo made to suffer as tho
result of meal contracts when he offered
to dismiss the suit against the city If
the council would readvertlsn In good
faith for the contracts, prescribing at
tho same time the amount and weights
of tho meals required.
To the contentions of Assistant City
Attorney 8. L. Winters that the council
had a discretionary power, the Judge
readily assented, hut for all of his as
sent he Indicated that he did not mean
to permit the prisoners to suffer as a
result of tho discretion and tho fight be
tween meal contractors. As gathered
from city officials tho readvertlsemMit
will In a scncral way call for bids on
meals weighing so much and comprising
viands to be described In a general way.
Tho Judge did not issue an oicrr, but
stated that ho would dismiss the casi
if the city complied with his Intimations.
Wherever the matter was discussed last
night tho courso of Judge Sutton nai
commended. It has happened frequently
that prisoners have been fed stuff that
has been unpalatable and Insufficient, ac
cording to policemen who are not preju
diced In favor of tho prisoners.
"While prison food should not be neces
sarily extra flno." said a city official
last night, "It ought to be sufficient and
wholesome at least."
Mrs. Lisle brought proceedings to com
pel the council to award her the con
tract for feeding the prisoners at 11
cents a meal. The contract was awarded
to another bidder at 13 cents a moal.

Host PoOteh Industry
Watching hogs cat ashes gave J. I'
McAnany the idea that has resulted In
the organisation of the Grain Belt Sup
ply company, which has Just taken over
the incinerator plant at tho Union stock
yards to manufacture hog potash. Tho
Incinerator was built to do away with
the refuse from the yards. The resulting
product was offered for sale as fertiliser.
For somo time the fertilizing department
has been displaced by the manufacture
of hog potash, which Is said to be a ptlmo
preventive, of cholera and other dis
eases among "hogi. Tho business oi tak
ing care of the. porker's health has In
creased many hundred fold in South'
Omaia. during the last year. Scrum
companies held a monopoly for some
time, but It Is expected that the potash
treatment will becomo pfipillar because
of Its cheapness. The farmers have been
buying and Using the stuff for some
time and report good results.

The Way to a Man's Heart
May or May Not Be Through His Stomach
but every man's life history may be traced by the dinners he has eaten. With such a text on its title page
the Economy Administration Cook Book becomes a part of the Nation's archives!
THE recipes represent every section of the country in its most characteristic
aspect its food. From New England come old recipes for pies and cakes and codfish balls; from the
South family heirlooms of recipes, ranging from baked ham and fried chicken to punch and apple toddy,
and going back to Thomas Jefferson and Martha Washington. One can find appropriate menus for all occasions
and all purses, from an elaborate French dinner given by Mrs. Perry Belmont to a simple family meal costing
twenty cent, a plate. SPECIAL OCCASION MENUS
THERE are menus for bridge luncheons, for an autumn wedding breakfast, for
a Creole dinner, for a violet luncheon, for afternoon tea in nearly every case recipes being furnished for
the unusual dishes. From Colorado is an interesting account of the changes in cookery required by the
high altitude, from California unusual Spanish and Mexican dishes. Even from over the sea come strange
recipes, via the Foreign Legations a fish salad from Norway, a savory dish from Persia.
WITH BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCHES AND PORTRAITS
TO most contributions are attached biographies and portraits of each woman
contributor, from which it is interesting to note the keen interest in homes and home-making of women with
wide public interests authors, lawyers and musicians, as well as the busy women of the Administration.
