THE instruction classes prove an
excellent clearing house for
conservation suggestions. A
few that are timely may help thofee
who are unable to get them first hand.

use one-sixth of a teaspoonful of soda
to one cup of barley flour to avoid a

or rice are cooked, and use it in soup.

Mashed potatoes may be used as a

cup of mashed potato will ' replace
ibout one-half cup of flour and one
lalf cup of liquid.
Fruit may be canned just as suc
ressfully as far as preservation is
:oncerned without sugar as with it.
When needed for use, reheat, adding
lesired amount of sugar.
All district chairmen of the conser
vation council are urged to secure
the co-operation of their block chair
men in saving the surplus supply of
iruits and vegetables. This may be
easily disposed of at the grocery
store or to those who have no gar
dens. While this entails a little
trouble, it is a patriotic duty to save
:very bit of food.
Many cherries were saved last week,
lue to the efforts of the conservation
rouncil. Cherry pickers were put in
touch with those who had the supply,
'o their mutual advantage.

A realization of this has prompted the launching of better babies and educational
campaigns designecfto safeguard infants and 'school children.
Miss Dorothy Weller, who won her diploma at the National Kindergarten school
in June, is directing the efforts of the undergraduates who are trying out their newly
acquired lore on the settlement youngsters.
There is no need of flying flags to remember our friends, the allies in the little
summer school. Representatives from the nations, sunny Italy to far-away Norway,
gather about the youthful teachers and raise their baby voices to sing the glories of the
Red, White and Blue.
Singing experts would hardly pronounce the choral work perfect, because of the
number of "untrained vonces" belonging to the tiny baby brothers and sisters, who,
although not really enrolled, make daily visits.
Alternately with the singing and dancing and "cutout" work comes the playground
hour. Many of the "sub-deb," patriots, much too young for service abroad, are assisting
the future kindergarten teachers. s (!
Dividing the forces on the ever-popular park coaster is one of the most difficult of j
tasks for the out-of-doors supervisors. Jimmie would like to slide all the time, but Tony
protests: "Aw, say kids! Lemie git a turn," and, perhaps, he uses a little pushing to gain j
his rights, but teacher is right there to adjust that, and to see as yejl that Rosie and
Fannie are not neglected.
Mrs. Marie Leff Caldwell, director of the settlement, who is conversant with the
S! needs of the families of the small pupils, finds that caring for the children during the
busy hours is of inestimable help to the mothers, many of whom would not be able to
earn thefew extra dollars in store or factory were it not for the settlement summer t

both the vice president and Mrs. Mar
shall are extravagantly devoted.
Mr. Marshall first became interest

women of leisure, humanely inclined.
Mrs. Marshall is very active in this
Work, and this baby, only a few
months old when she first knew him,
was so frail and he appealed to her
so strongly that she asked the priv
ilege of taking him to her own apart
ment in the Willard hotel, and see
what a little real hand work would
do for him. It worked wonders, and
the frail little mother was more pleas
ed than any one. The result is that
the vice president and Mrs. Marshall,
never having had any children of
their own, have legally adopted the
youngster, and are as happy as chil
dren themselves, with him. The vice
president told a friend recently that
he was "having the time of his life
with the kid." Little Morrison has
grown into a fine, sturdy little fellow
who is beginning to walk and to talk,
or at least, to try to. Mr. and Mrs.
Marshall spent their Fourth of July
on a train between Washington and
Mr. and Irs. Walter Penfield, nee
Bacon, of Omaha, went to Atlantic
City Wednesday to spend the Fourth,
and are remaining over the week-end.
They will later go north and join
Mrs. Penfield's parents, Mr. and Mrs.

Mrs. Bacon left a week ago to motor
leisurely through the Berkshires. They

THE FOURTH of July in Wash
ington was an unusual one this
year. With the White House and all
the cabinet homes open and few of the
homes of the socially prominent peo
ple closed, it is an unprecedented
season. Congress was disappointed,
the women of that circle no less than
the, men, not to get back toheir own
homes or t some summer resort in
time for the annual celebration.
The president and Mrs. Wilson and
a little party of relatives were the
two central figures in the wonderful
patriotic meeting at Mount Vernon
near the tomb of the father of his
country, the first time in the history
of the place that such a thing has
taken place. Official, diplomatic and
residential Washington motored
down there, went down on the regu
lar boat and some private craft, and
on the street cars, until it looked as
though the country had assembled
there. It was a wonderful inspira
tion to the young and a mervelous
satisfaction-to the elderly. Miss Mar
garet Wilson did her part in the day's,
celebration by singing patriotic songs
with the French military band at the
Soldiers' Home exercises.
The Adopted Child.
The vice president and Mrs. Mar

Nebraska, anxious for oppor
tunity to perform patriotic serv

ment received today by Miss Sark
Hrbkova, chairman of the woman's
committee of the Council of Defense,
relative to the employment of women
teachers for radio classes.
The bulletin reads:
Approval of women teachers
for radio classes of conscripted
men is announced by the Federal
Board of Vocational Education,
which authorizes the following:
"The war situation demands a
great increase not only for troops
but for mechanics and techni
cians of every kind, including ra

"It has been reported to this
' office from several state that a
shortage of teachers is one fac-
tor in preventing the establish
ment of classes in desirable cen
ters. "In vTew of the vote of the
federal board permitting the use ,
of federal funds for salaries of
men outside Draft Clss 1, the
