KING AT ROYALTY
IN LONDON Y.
King George and Queen Mary saw how American corn-cakes were
made and also sampled them. Not only, that, but they saw how American
fighters conquer the delicacy. Here you see royalty emerging from their
first encounter with the favorite American breakfast delight. It would al
most seem they were viewing the Marines and Sailors as though wondering
it this is the food on which they grow so husky.
King George missed the best part of the recent pancake treat at Lon
don Eagle Hut-he didn't turn 'em personally. Everyone else is doing it
now, putting an extra edge on their appetites by manipulating the flipper.
The six Y. M. C. A. c?ke-bakers were on the verge of prostration after
serving 6,124 American soldiers and sailors with pancakes in the first fif
teen days' rush on this pet edible, when a hut secretary had a happy
thought. He induced the pancake fiends not only to bake their own, but
also to demonstrate with the batter and turner for their hungry buddies.
The idea went big, ?specially as the "Y" retails two man's size cakes with
appropriate maple syrup both for sixpence.
A Tennessee boy made a big hit with King George' when the tatter
strode into the room where the royalty was assembled.
"They tell me the king is here," remarked the Tennesseean, "and I
want to shake hands with the head of this beautiful country."
The king gave the Tennessee boy a hearty handshake and inquired
as to the state in America from which he came.
(By Delayed Cable from Chateau Thierry Front with American Forces
te France.)-The Rev. Daniel R. Kennedy, jr., formerly of Savannah, Ga,,
a Red Triangle worker, has been given honorary mention for having dis
played splendid coolness and bravery when gassed in a "Y" hut during
a German attack in France. He is cow recovering and hos written back
from the front: "I guess no one is afraid to pay the price if necessary."

Dr. W. W. Alexander, general re
cruiting secretary for the War Per

Work Council, declares that there ls a
pressing need for home service, and
that this affords a splendid opportun

not able to go abroad under the Red
"The Y. M. C. A. needs men for
overseas service, of course, but the
home camps must not be forgotten,"
explained Dr. Alexander. "From now
on until the first ot the year the
Southeast must recruit 1,000 men for
the home camps. This means that
each state will be called upon to fur
nish 25 men per month per state to
serve the soldiers in camps such as
Gordon, Jackson. Wheeler and the
others. The constant growth of the
home cantonments and the growing
demand for the Y. M. C. A. work

' FOODS WITH MIXED FLOURS.
As rye flour is now on the "don't
use" list, we must not use it as a
substitute for flour. In
many homes where rye
is still found in quanti
ties it should be used
sparingly, as it will not
be plentiful as long as it
is used as food for tho
annies. In many of our
war recipes we find
whole wheat flour used as a wheat sub
stitute, which it is not Whole wheat
flour used With barley flour to lesson
the use of wheat is justified, but the
use of whole wheat flour as a wheat
substitute is not conforming to the
rules of conservation.
