RILEY TELLS OF LEE AND GETTYSBURG Last night the University Club held its regular fortnightly meeting in Mc- Dowell Hall, St. John’s College. The program, as usual, was featured by contrasts. That vital subject "Milk” was handled by the first two speakers, while the third treated the pivotal battle of the Civil War—“ Gettysburg.” Opening the program, Professor John C. Gray, of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Physics, U. S. Naval Academy, spoke upon the subject of “Milk Production.” His in teresting facts were based upon per sonal experience as well as scientific observation. He showed the import ance of the greatest vigilance in guarding against germs, by observing strict cleanliness and steriliza’lo-* of bottles, the hands of the milker, thr teats of the cow and the milk-buckets. Another important consideration, as he showed, is the proper cooling of the milk, which is naturally lift de grees. and should be reduced and kept at 40 degrees. Above i>o degrees, bac teria rapidly propagate. Pasteuriza tion, that is heating milk to 140 de grees, destroys tuberculin bacteria, but also probably destroys vitamins and therefore raw milk is preferable The speaker figured in detail the cost of milk on the four counts: feed, la bor, equipment and delivery, and upon this basis declared that good milk could be easil.x* produced at 13 cents, furnished to the public at 16 cents a quart, allowing 3 cents a quart profit (Continued On Pave 4.)
