When these boys and girls eat this
kind of food they are caterins to pam
pered appetites and not to real hun
ger. I have often wondered when I
have watched the orders of these boys
and girls what they had to work on for
the afternoon, as no part of their
bodies could possibly be rebuilt on
such kind of fillings.
One office boy said: "I have 1 cents
for luncheon. I buy a bag of popcorn
and spend the rest for picture shows."
Would anyone say this boy could pos
sibly be up to his highest efficiency for
his employer in the afternoon on a

Our growing children, who have a
natural craving for sweets, should
have safe and sane lunch rooms pro

wholesome energy-building food.

the season's debutantes, n.ed in the
Atlanta younger set for fter vivacity
and her wonderful Lron eyes, con
ceded to be the handompst pair in
all Georgia, has earnid her right to
be called a heroine as well as a beau
ty. Miss Amorous and her escort were
among the first to arrive at a big For
est avenue fire. As she descended
from her limousine Miss Amorous
heard some one say that there was a
little child in one of the burning build
ings. Impeded as she was by her
tight fitting dress and high heeled
French slippers. Miss Amorous dash-
ed lnt4 the burning house, and, al -
though the roof was ready to fall in,
ran from room to room until she found
the child, whom she brought safely to
the sidewalk in her arms. Then, turn

Let me suggest' to these boys and
girls not to be afraid of the better
class restaurants, fearing the prices
are too high for their allowance for
luncheon. In most of these good res
taurants a thick, nourishing soup Is
always to be found. This, with a salad,
whole wheat bread and butter or an
apple, banana or any fruit, makes a
most excellent luncheon and I wish to
urge them to go to such places where
they can be assured the food is the
best that can be bought, not fancy,
but nourishing, and then they will
have no use for coffee, which is only
a stimulant at its very best. There
should never be any occasion for our
boys and girls taking this drink at
the luncheon hour.
