General Suggestions For The
Use Of Bread Crumbs
Soft stale bread when crumbed is
called stale bread crumbs, or raspings,
and is used for puddings, griddle
cakes, omelets, scalloped dishes, and
dipping food to be fried. Stale bread
which has been dried in the oven,
rolled and sifted are called dry bread
crumbs, and are useful for crumbing
croquettes, cutlets, meat, fish, etc'
By using more liquid they may bo
substituted for stale bread crumbs.
Brown bread that has been tho
roughly dried in the oven is said to
make a very acceptable breakfast
A MESSAGE FROM MR. HOOVER
"No matter how low prices may go
nor how high they may reach, the real
problem is, 'Can we produce enough
tor ourselves and enough more to
make up the deficiency of our allies?
'We can if we so desire. Autocracy
believes that we cannot do it; believes
(hat as a member of a democracy we
are too selfishly Individualistic to de
sire il, too weak to accomplish it even
if we did wish it. It admits our fight
ing ability but derides our power of
self control and self-sacrifice. Apart
then from our ohpgation to the Allies
it is Incumbent on America to prove
that democracy needs no tyrant's rod
to govern its ways or its appetites.
We have already undertaken broad
measures to increase our production
of food, and our intelligence, our sense
of value of the object to be accom
plished will inspire us to decrease our
consumption. We shall be saving for
"The question is, 'Can a democracy
organize itself on the basis of individ
ual seli-control and self-denial? Can
America actually do on the basis of
willing co-operation what in other
countries is always done under the
rig'd rule of autocracy?"

Making It All Right

that secret I told you not to tell her,"
"Oh, isn't she a mean thing!" gasp

to tell you!"
."Well," returned Margaret, "I told
her I wouldn't tell you she told me
so don't tell her I did." Everybody's.

TIIE EMU AKGO ON NEUTRAL TRADE
W ashington The I'litish embargo mi exports of supplies to
neutrals of northern Europe was declared after every phase of its effect
had been discussed at conferences held with repre'sentatives of the
European Allies and American statesmen. The .step taken by Great
Britain indicates an Allied-American decission that neutrals must cut
off exports of every kind to Germany.
It is expected that within a short time every neutral will declare a
flat embargo against shipments to the Central Powers, and that Germany
will be demoralized as a result of it. Neutrals cannot exist, it is
claimed, without British and American commerce.

threatened that unless the Entente accepted the peace terms of the
Central Powers, with no annexations and no indemnities, immediately,
Austria would be forced to enlarge her program and seek compensation
for further costs of the war. He declared that any great pacifist move
ment was impossible unless every nation gave up something of its in
dependence to ensure world peace. He also emphasized that the limita
tion of world armament was necessary to peace.
