4 Here's a Good Job
Binoculars, spyglasses and tele
icopes are needed by the -iavy so
badly that everyone is urged to do
nate their own to the government.
England had hit upon this method
of replenishing the navy store of
'glasses long ago, and there are
women's societLj in England that
have for their principal object the
collecting of privr.te glasses and giv
ing them to the navy. But our gov
ernment did not think of this way of
making up- for a shortag- that has
been worrying until a letter was re
ceived from a . old man in California.
This man was-a veteran of the civil
war and 74 years old. ,
He wrote that he heard the navy
was having a hard time getting lenses
enough for glasses and sent his old
ones, hoping that if he couldn't go to
war his glasi.es might do some good
Jti a patrol ship by sighting a Ger
man submarine. This voluntary do
nation suggested the idea to the Navy
department that the mary glasses
now privately owned could be secured
for the service.
It is a ver satisfactory donation to
be able to make, because it isn't often
that . any. of us are able to give either
branch of the service something that
it really needs badly and would be
The1 supply of glasses before 'the
war " came almost entirely from
France and' Germany1, Now England
is setting up some factories for' lenses
and offers free instruction to girls
under 30 in the making of them if
they will agree to keep up thr work.

Barley bread is one of the finest of
war breads and can be made with very
little trouble, according to today's
bulletin from the National Emergency
Food Garden commission of Wash
ington, working in conjunction .with
this newspaper in a nation-wide move
ment to conserve the food supply. The
following' recipe is recommended for
j this bread:
( 2 cups peelej aad sliced potato,
i 2 cups boiling water,
' H yeast cake in cup lukewarm water,
i 1 teaspoon salt.
2 cups barley flour.
1 cups wheat flour.
1 tablespoon Sugar, ...
1 tablespoon lard.
All measurements are level iuil. Boil
the potato arid water and put through
a sieve or colander. While still luke
warm add the yeast dissolved in one
'ourth cup of lukewarm water. Stir
into this two cups of wheat flour to
make a sponge. Set this sponge in a
warm place to rise for about thfee
hours. Put in a bread pan or on the
bread board two cups of wheat flour
and two- cups of rye flour. Open up
the center of this pile of flour and
pour in the sponge. Add the sugar,
salt and lard and mix all together,
then knead well for about 10 minutes
or until it is elastic and smooth. Set
to rise 'in a covered pan in a warm
place until it doubles in "bulk. Then
mold into two loaves, put into well
greased pans and set to rise again
until double i.i size. Then bake in a
moderate oven for one hour. Remove
loaves from pans snd place them on
cloth or bread board to cool.
A Good Thing to Know
A burned saucepan should be filled
with cold water to which a liberal al
lowance of soda has been added. Let
it stand for aft hour or so, after which
heat the water slowly for a few min-
utes, and the .burned particles will
come off quite easily.
Eat All Poultry You Can
Use more poultry in place of beef,
mutton and pork. Do not use beef,
mutton or pork more than once daily,
and serve smaller portions, except to
the children. Do not fail to use all
left-over meat cold or in made-over
wishes. Herbert Hoover.

"I'll Do Anything!"
Do you know her Miss I'll-do-anything?
You must have seen her
.some time surely.
One of her kind applied for a job
in the office yesterday because she
lieard there were several vacancies.
"What can you do?" she was asked.
"Oh, I am willing to do anything. You
see, I have to earn" We foiled her
plot to tell her history of reduced
circumstance:, and put the blunt, cold
question: "Can you take dictation?"
"No," she replied, almost hurt at such
a definite inquiry into her past.
"Can you typewrite?" we pursued,
heartlessly. "No," she admitted, "but
I'm sure if you let me use the type-
lvritpr I rn:ill nick it tin easilv." We
ignored her ambition to make a school
out of a busy office. "Can you file
letters?" "File?" she repeated,
slowly. "No, but if someone showed
me I could." "Well, what can you
do?" "Oh, I can do anything 1" she
I heard about another Miss Any
thing who applied at the office of
one of the war relief organizations.
"I want to do my bit for my coun
try,'' she announced grandly, "and I'm
willing to do anything." The secre
tary was delighted. "Splendid, my
dear, there's lots of sewing we need
attended to at once." "Oh, but I
can't sew," she gasped. "I see. Per
haps you can take dictation? We're
short of stenographers just now. No?
Well, I have a tall here from the mills
for 100 unskilled girls." Miss Any
thing rose. "Well, now really, I
couldn't go into a factory, you know."
Then she swept out of the room.
An older Miss Anything recently

that she was sure she would suit, as

If Miss Anything offers her miscel
laneous excellences to you pin her
down and you will generally find she
knows nothing. When she offers her
services to Uncle Sam to do "any
thing" She means that she will do
some work that is easy, pleasant and
will get her picture in the papers as
a feminine patriot. She is useless and
useless' she will remain until she real
izes that service means the ability to
do one specific thing well, whether
it's the ability to run a sewing ma
chine, a typewriter or a motor truck.
If we wsnt to fill some job well we
have to practice or study on at least
one thing so that there is something
we can do not anything.
Advice to Lovelorn
By BEATRICE FAIRFAX.
Dear Miss Fairfax: 1 am seriously inter
ested in a girl of 26 who has been going
about for five years with a man of 4t.
She admits that he takes her out regularly
in his - automobile, to theaters and other
places of amusement. Yet she is willing to
give him up.
I am broad-minded, but somehow am In
clined to regard their friendship with sus
picion. What Is yojir opinion? V. B.
Oh, no, you are not broad-minded; you
are narrow-minded evil-minded. In fact
and you add jealousy to your suspicious na
ture. Why can you not believe that a girl
can have a perfectly decent and respectubls
friendship with a man under circumstances
Just such as you have described? Why can
you not respect and believe in a girl who
is willing to give up luxuries because of her
feeling for you? Aro you so distrustful of
her because you yourself could not be friends
with a girl for five years and treat her with
respect or have you simply a morbid atti
tude toward most things?
Is It Not Generosity?
Dear Miss Fairfax: I am IS and dearly
In love with a man two years my senior.
My love is reciprocated. He is a sailor and
will leave for tho other aide in about a
He has told me how much he loves me,
but has said nothing definite. Now, Miss
Fairfax, 1 would gladly wait 10 years for
him if he asked m to. I am not pretty,
but attractive, and have plenty of admir
ers, but do not care for them. If I even
mention any other name while he Is with uie
he Is jealous. Not that he says anything to
me, but he feels hurt. Is It right. Miss
Do you think I ought to go about with
other men? I know he cares for mo and
I love him, but do you think It is fair?
Why should he feel hurt when I go out with
anyone else If he doesn't care? Won't you
please advise me? I do not care for anyone
else's company. I have thought Unit per
haps it is because he is going away ho may
not think it is fair to ask me to wait. He
miiy think that he may not come hack
and so will not say anything. Miss Fair
fax, why should he rob mo of the happi
ness that could be mine before he goes?

When Milady Goes Shopping
The general impression is that pearls bring tears.
Nothing of the kind! Here tethe "why." : :
By ADELAIDE KENNERLY.
NOW that the Christmas shop
ing season is upon ui I am
sure that many frind-read-crs
w ill be interested in a cer
tain amount of jewelry style news.
Not knowing how pearls and tears
became associated, the general im
pression has gone out that pearls
mean tears. Nothing of. the kind!
Here is the "why": The' first his
torically noteworthy pearl (reclaimed
from the bottom of the sea), sub
mitted ,to a -potent Braham of In
dia, produced upon him, by its soft
beauty, suCh pleasurable and senti
mental. effect that it elicited from him
this Xc!amation--"Herein are the
tears of heaven, which "fell into the
sea,; congealed, and have; become a
gem which is beyond price," and he
named it the "Pearl." '
From the standpoint of fashion
there is-absolutely nothing that ap
peals to fastidious women to the
same extent as pearls, particularly
the pearl necklace. The pearl in its
very earliest appearance in history
exemplified chastity and virtue. This
has, from time immemorial estab
lished the pearl as the' most appro
priate wedding' gift, whether in the
shape of ring, pendant, stickpin, ear
rings or ntcklatfe.
Americans did not ppreciate pearls
until so many of them began touring
European countries; and in moving in
polite society began to realize that
the American women were far behind
the European women, of equal social
standing, in the matter of refinement
of personal adornment. From this
period emanates the desire for pearls
by Americans of rank and fashion.
"Rush, rush, rush" is the slogan
of the people of this country, which

pure generosity on his. part that keeps him
from asking you to wait for blm? Even If
you are not engaged, don't you think It Is
worth while to forget your other admirers
and devote yourself to him while yet hs Is
here In America? You might talk to him
just as you have spoken to me, but I think
the thing to do Is to make a few little
sacrifices for the sake of this friendship
without demanding any definite assurance
in return. Just give him your friendship
and don't have so many selfish worries about
whether one thing or the other Is right and

they know what is proper for each
occasion and are usually willing to

Women teachers in Japan are in-

rate. Between 18X) and 1914 their
number .multiplied more than 12 times

This rate of increase is lower than in
Great Britain and France, but much
higher than in Germany. In several
prefectures the' local governments
have abolished normal schools for
girls. The reasons given are that wo
men teachers do not remain long in
the profession, that they are incapable
of assisting in local reforms, that they
lack capacity to control children, and
that scandals sometimes occur.
