injured. He received a severe blow on the head during football practice last
week and is suffering from what the players call a "tin car." This is pain
ful, although not serious, but Wendell will have to be careful for some time
and will have to play guardedly, with his head swathed in banjiages and pro

Uncle Sam's Housekeeping
When Woodrow Wilson, once
presidentof Princeton, now governor
of New Jersey, possibly next presi
dent of the United States, talks about.
national housekeeping, he talks about what
he knows. " Housekeeping" and
"economy" mean exactly the same thing
whether applied to your home or a nation
of homes. This ringing message should
be read by every American woman.
This story is true
Behind the title "Nellie Grant, Nurse
Girl," is the experience of a real girl
who became a nurse and worked in
many homes to learn what the average
American home is like, ar.d how the house
wife in thnt home solves, or f;iils to solve,
her housekeeping problems. It is told in
story form, but it is a true record; it is not
founded on fact it is fact.
