t j Market
I I The proceeds of the community
j; market Wednesday were $44.00. De>!
spite the bad weather a quantity of
i I fresh vegetables and strawberries
were on sale. Strawberry and vanilla
ice cream were on sale Saturday as
well as beef and hash. A number of
frying size chickens have been prom!
ised, come early and get yours. No
* j orders have been reserved as they
II have outgrown the supply.
This is one of the ?>est months of
the year for chicks. Dust all hens
and chicks with good insect powder.
Pay particular attention to head lice
that may be on baby chicks. Provide
j , chick size charcoal and ground bone
i or meat scraps in the mash hopper;
r; feed when practical. Sour milk
[ I should be fed constantly. It is a good
L supplement for meat scraps. Clean
i?summer quarters at once. Spray
: house to kill vermm. Maite spring

Preservation of Eggs
During the spring months of the
] year the hens are in heavy egg proj
duction. There is a large supp' / of
j eggs pushed on the market which
' tends to bring the price down. Much
! of this supply finds sts way iiito the
J cold storage plant where the eggs are
1 stored for winter Jf too peers
I during this flush of production could
be economically preserved for winter
I use by the consumer a great saving
i could be made on the egg and meat
I bill. j
Preserving of eggs at home in the
spring and summer for fall and win- ,
ter use is not a new practice. The
i practice of preserving eggs has
j year we find more people putting
'wear we find more people putting.;
! eggs away in storage. The method j
that has given probably the best re-',
! suits is the water glass method. The .
| chemical name of water glass is so-:,
i dium silicate. In any method of home!,
i preservation the object is to surround (
the eggs with some material which
] will fill up the pores in the shell and
Ikeep the normal liquids in the shell
I H ? *
Method of Using Water Glass.
In this method use the following ;
materials: stone or earthen ware ]
' crocks, a supply of sodium silicate or ]
water glass and strictly fresh eg^s. j
Each crock should have a cover. The j
1 crock should fce washed and steril- j i
ized in boiling water, be sure that it ?
is absolutely clean. .
! The preserving solution should be 1
'made by taknig ten parts of water j
which has been boiled and cooled and, j!
one part of sodium silicate, mix and|i
I stir thoroughly, the eggs should be j
carefully placed in the crock, small ji
ends down, care being taken so as not f 1
to break or crack any of the shells. 1
Fill the jar up to about two inches of 1
the top with eggs and then pour in ]
the water glass solution and fill the t
; crock to the top. The eggs will then t
| be covered with two inches of this t
i water glass solution. Place the cov-j^
er tightly on the crock and set the | i
contents in a dark cool place. By j
putting the cover tightly on evapor- i
ation will be lowered to a minimum, 1
: examine ihe crock occasionally to 1
see if more solution is needed to l
keep the eggs properly submerged, t
This method will preserve eggs for a 1
' period of nine months to a year. <
, Canned eggs required a little differ- i
ent treatment in cooking than do i
fresh ones. Unless the large end is <
punctured before hand they will <
crack when boiled. They are entire- 1
ly satisfactory for scrambling, ome- >
(lets, custards, cakes and other kinds j
! of cooking. ;
J Only absolutely fresh eggs should ]
be preserved, dirty eggs or eggs that 1
: have been washed should not be used, <
| washed eggs will not keep because the ^
j protective coating has been removed j
: by the washing, and dirty eggs will '
1 becmoe tainted in flavor. Infertile ?'
; eggs are better than fertile eggs for, 1

good time and get to know each oth- t
er. Sixty-one had gathered when j
the main dining room was thrown f
open and the co-eds, each with a Rotarian
on either arm, led the proces- ^
sion to the two long tables which had
been spread and specially decorated ^
in scarlet and grey for the occasion. ^
Many gay floweri added to the charm
of the dining room and with the pretty
co-eds it was indeed an unusual c
gathering and one not soon to be for- ^
After all were seated Zach Wright j
appeared at the door with two other j y
guests who, though invited, came as|
a surprise to most of the diners, for|
Miss Carolyn Cromer, daughter of; ^
the retiring president Ben Cromer,! r(
and Mrs. E. H. Kibler, the wife of the I ^
incoming president, Hask Xibler. The j
entrance of Zach with the two addi- j jr
tional guests caused Hask Kibler to ]y
'most have to call Bob Mayes for first
aid, but before the dinner was half,'
over he had completely recovered, as n.
the record will later show. j ^
Sixty-five plates had been set and i
fhp four unused reDresented the base-' ?
-ball players who are members of the j Q]
senior class who were unable to be
present on account of the Furman:
game that afternoon and upon motion
of Ben Cromer the club express- ^

attend and extended to them an invitation

ter grace by Earle Babb several songs ^
were sung and then the menu was
the thing for the next twenty minutes.
With the first lull in the ser- T]
vice Zach Wright was asked to say a
word of welcome to the seniors and a\
Zach did this right nobly. He is a fe
pleasing speaker at all times but he Ci
shines at Rotary luncheons, for the pr
Rotarians love good jokes and they ly
humor Zach by giving him rapt attention
when he tells one of his jokes to m
illustrate his point. Zach had sever- qial
jokes and stories in his welcome ce
speech and properly conveyed the ni
warm welcome to the class of 1922 te
which the Rotarians hold deep down of
in their hearts for the, gradating p*
class of our college. Miss Gaillard al
responded in behalf of the co-eds and pr
Earl Kinard for the entire class. Both to
3f the collegians made fine responses p
and received generous applause. w<
After this Earle Babb led out his co
Razoo sextette, composed of Hask ad
Kibler, Jim Moon, Harry Pominick, of
Ben Dorrity, Jim Kinard and the pe
leader, and he gave the club some- qu
thing entirely new in the way of musical
entertainment. This part of the ge
program was a scream and they re- ta
;ponded to several encores and prob- re
ibly would have been "Razooing" un- to

jeen brought around and this broke co

ifter which Ben Cromer, in a very re
lappy way, turned over the gavel to th
lis successor and wished him well. |

vhich showed that the members were mi
for him good and strong and he pro- se

vith the grace and ease with which he
accepted the gavel and the force and g
feeling: with which he spoke. He then j n(
asked the vice president to arise and|?r
Sid Derrick was greeted with a hearty j
applause when he arose to answer to j ]e
the name of vice president. Some
one called for a speech from Sid but ( ^
since the seniors had been promised er
that they would be spared a speech' a]
from their college president, from or
whom they hear so nuny speeches, he s;<
did not do more than bow acknowl- aI
edgement of the honors of his office j
and the applause given him. Hal
Kohn, the secretary and treasurer,
stood up in answer to the call and
so did Jim Moon the sergeant at
After the installation was com- th
pleted the seniors were called on for
l song and they gave several sele
ions, with a whistling number whic
fas very pleasing. They closed the
iart of the program with a lusty ye
or ''Rotary." Miss Merchant playe
or the seniors and A. R. Busch pe
ormed on saxaphone. Following t?
eniors Earle Babb led the club i
everal songs, with "Smiles" the mo:
opular and the one which all kno
nd sang best of all. Senior Mulle
hen delighted the diners with sever,
'azoo solos and got much applaus
or his efforts.
Hask Kibler asked Ben Porrit

AN INTERESTING LETTER
I FROM ACROSS THE SEA
; A Member of the U. S. S. Williamson
in Turkish Waters Writes a
Under date of April 19 Mr. James
G. McCarey writes his brother-in'
law, Mr. R. B. Focht, a letter from
Turkey, from which we copy portions
for the benefit of our readers. We
can not reproduce the contents of the
letter'entirely, as parts of it are per'
snnal. but will give the most interest
;ing facts. The letter was written just
after Mr. McCarey's ship had sailed
from Odessa, where for ten days he
was "watching the Russians die of
starvation.'' It was an awful sight
he described in watching those mis,
erable wretches die of starvation.
Look at the picture and think of
yourself as "watching men die of
starvation." Hear the writer as he
tells of the dead in the streets and in
. the graveyards, "piled up in stacks
like cordwood, the bodies stripped of
ii every sign of clothing, the dogs, in
some cases, having eaten the most of
the bodies." The writer continues
his gruesome narrative with the statement
that everywhere around the
1 frt Ko coon an arm or
cjai uo c*jl t tu ik/v, *- -* w?- ? ? ,
a head or some other part of the human
body, having been buried in
graves only about a foot deep, sometimes
not covered and bodies exposed,
or, if covered, dug up by dogs, as the
people are dying faster than they can
be buried. "The health department
can't cope with the situation,'" says
Mr. McCarey, and "conditions are in j
' a most deplorable way in Odessa, and j
I am told that they are worse yet in |
the interior." All of that was about j
the already dead and the dying. Now
look at the picture the writer draws
of the yet living, the starving and
near-dead. While in Odessa, he says
n tVio Ar\r*\r a 1 nr>crciHp thp
Llitll/ UUVVil KJl 1 UVVtt ?..w
ship things were in a fright; people
were down there begging for something
to eat, and they would eat anything
regardless of how it was served:
throw anything out on the dock ip the
dirt and filth, and down they would
go on their hands and knees like so
many dogs and eat it." He "even
saw two liicl.j b:?ys mi 'he dock in
