A FAIRY DREAM COJIK TRUE
I.otlnjr Hearts of L'nhers.ity Girls Do
Work of Happy Sprites.
Fairies are not only in fairy land;
they also come to the land of auto
mobiles and big smoke stacks and
give help and pleasure to the hearts
of dreaming little children.
And the fairy that came to visit one
hopeful Columbia girl brought a
fairy wand to turn her ambitions into
She was a poor little girl. and her
mother was a poor mother, just like
all the little children and the moth

had dreams, oh, such wonderful i
dreams. And she didn't tell herj
mother and she didn't tell anybody i
for a long time. She just dreamed
and dreamed and dreamed, just the
same as the little girl in the land of
And this was the little girl's dream:
that some day, some day when she
grew up, she would go off to school
like other girls she had heard about.
But this was only a dream, a dream

The girl's mother was being as
sisted by the Columbia Charity
Organization Society In her struggle
to keep herself and her three children
alive. One day a young woman who
attended the University came along
with the social worker and talked
with the dreaming girl.
"I want to go to school; I want to
go away like other girls to boarding
schools," she confided to the sympa
thetic woman. And she told her of
her hopes and desires and dreams.
She told of how when she grew up
she wanted to help her mother so she
would not need to have the society
give them anything. She wanted to
go to school so that she could do
something great like the girls she
read about In the fairy books and the
The young woman of the University
was impressed by the little girl's story
and hopes. She went away and
talked about her to some other Uni
versity women. TheTi they decided
to help the little girl with the fairy
dreams and send her off to boarding
school. And the dreaming fairy girl
of Columbia went to school.
When she arrived at the school she
opened up her trunk and behold,
everything a girl desired was there.
There were the beautiful hat and coat
and dresses and and everything just
like the things the other girls had.
And the little Columbia girl, who
dreamed dreams, was helped by a
"sure-enough" fairy and is starting to
get the education that will enable her
to help her mother who is now being

championship for the season of 1917
by defeating the seniors Monday after
noon by a 2 to 1 score. The juniors
have won all their games this year.
The game was hard fought. The
score at the end of the first halt was
1 to 0 in favor of the seniors. Both
teams were "up in the air" and the
playing was mostly individual. The
second half, however, the juniors set

X1LLEHS' PROFITS DECREASE!
Food Administration Stabilizes Bread
Prices; Aids Farmer and Consumer.
Both the wheat-grower and the
bread-eater have been benefited since
the Federal Food Administration be
gan to stabilize wheat prices last
September, says a statement of the
Government information service. The
consumer in the large cities pays six
or seven cents for a pound loaf of
bread; last year the same consumer
paid from ten to fifteen cents for a
pound of bread. On the other hand,
the farmer sold his wheat for an
average og $1.60 a bushel last year;
now he sells it for $2.16 a bushel.
, The decrease In bread prices and in
crease in the farmer's profit have been
brought about by lessening the mill
er's profit. Last year he bought four
and a half bushels of wheat, which
yields a barrel of flour, for $7.25 and
sold the barrel of flour for $10.50;
this yearyhe pays $9.75 for the same
amount of wheat and sells the barrel
or flour for $10.25. The miller's mar
gin of profit on a barrel of flour was
$3.25 and by-products in 1916; now
for the milling of a barrel he makes
50 cents and the by-products. These
figures are taken from the Minneapolis
Speculation in wheat and hoard
ing of it have been abolished, the in
formation sheet declares.
