THE FLUOR OF HOME COOKISU
The cafeterias, cafes and boarding
. bouses in Colombia are quite as good
and perhaps a little cheaper than
those in other towns of this size or
Urger. The boarders are typical of
those found elsewhere in the world,
not long contented or 'satisfied.
For a while' the novelty of
boarding appeals, the whiteness of
the linen is just right; the silverware
correct; the service satisfactory and
the food palatable. Soon the food
cannot be eaten, the silverware needs
polishing, and the service is deplor
ableand it is the same boarding
house and the same service that a
short while ago was satisfactory.
The trouble is not with tie board
ing house, but that the boarder is
homesick. Lonesome for home and
home cooking. Lonesome for the
.place where he can sit around the
table and find freedom from con
straint, geniality of spirit, and fellow
ship with those he loves. All this
gives to home cooking a flavor not
found in boarding house food.
It is love of fellowship that flavors
the home cooking for which the board'
er is longing.

Tht School la the Sticks."
S. A. Steel, a southern gentleman, a
strict religionist, and an educator by
his own confession, tells in a Sl-pagel
booklet. The School in the Sticks",
Dt the way the Lamar Manual School
worked oot during its eighteen
months of exlstance. The exposition
Is preceded by a sketch of the author's
conception of education and what
teachers should be.
"No one should attempt to teach
unless they are called of God to the
work; and they shonld enter the
schoolroom as into a temple of wor
ship. A teacher is like a potter at the
wheel, with the plastic clay of life in
his hands. He is an artist, molding
figures that will endure when suns
are cold", says the author.
The School In the Sticks' was ded
icated to the teaching of the Joy of
work and appreciation of refinement
to boys and girls, at first of the poor.
Before the school closed, because cf
disaster to its patron, the waiting list
held 500 names. Pupils from a dozen
states were enrolled. The school was
carried on in a thousand-acre tract
in Mississippi. The book closes with a
sketch of the authro's experiences,
written In the Southern manner. The
style throughout is easy, incisive and
droit. The ideas are of value to any
one in the teaching field.

One of the early uses to which the
obtaining of Images was put was that
of tracing the features of the land
scapes. This was done with the as
sistance of a table with the opening
place admitting the light under the
table and down near the ground. The
light was admitted and deflected up
by a prism causing the image on the
glass top over which tracing paper
was placed. The outline was made on
the paper. This method was used by
the French as early as 1755.
Photography had been nsed to a
good advantage in engineering. It
enables the engineer to make mints
of territory over which he is to work
and of deigns he is to make.
The art has probably been develop
ed by war. The recent war saw the
greatest use of photography that the
world has ever seen. It was used on
airships, balloons, planes, and in re
connaissance departments of various
sorts. With the aid of photography
the. opposing forces could map out the
territory of their enemies and tell how
to attack them. j

The limits of Socialism."
Starting with a discussion of Karl
Marx and the economists and making
an investigation into the economic
interpretation of history and the na
ore of Justice, "The limits of Social
ism," fey o. Fred Boucke, professor
of economics at Pennsylvania State
College, assumes the socialistic state
end proceeds to show its limits.
If it is to increase production it
must increase one or more of the fac
tors of rroduction. namely, natural
resources, labor supply or efficiency.
Mr. Boucke shows that socialism can
not hope to Increase the natural re
sources, for these are limited and are
moreover under the competitive sys
tem worked now to the utmost limit
in keeping with their duration. He
believes that 10 or 15 per cent would
be the maximum gain in the other
On the side of distribution Mr.
Boucke points out that the gain coold
not be more than 20 per cent, for that
amount only is being used for luxur
ies, the rest going into necessities
and Into investment in cafpital goods.
A fourth limit of socialism is point
ed out in the strength of nationalism
which opposes the complete under
standing social theorist would have
between the nations of the world.
This work, has the merit of Uklng
np a sew angle of a lire subject and
treating It with impartiality. It also
gives a fair description of the limits
of socialism and support its conclu
sions with a set of tables, which.
though necessarily only Approximate,
are nevertheless valuable.
The socialistic state with its mil
lennium of happiness as a goal finds
small favor with this author who
holds that all the social reformer can
do Is to better the material conditions
of exlstance and leave happiness to
take care of Itself.
The work Is open to several criti
cisms. The first in mechanical.
Though purporting to deal with
the limits of socialism, half of it is
devoted to a discussion of Karl Marx
and the Interpretation cf history, mat
ers which, however valuable In them
selves, are not relevant to the subject
discussed-. The next defect is the
weak criticism of the marginal theory
of economics, based on a quibble and
without point. A third and far grav
er criticism as found in the failure to
set a limit to the amount of income
which a socialistic statu would be wil
ling to set aside each year from pres--nt
consumption for investment la
capital goods. This Is one of the
strongest arguments against social
Ism yet it is not even mentioned .
