What the School
Child Should Eat
Fruits and vegetables should have
a place in the diet of the growing
child—but not all fruits nor all vege
tables are fit food for children. Uncle
Sam’s expert dietician tells the moth
ers who read The Times tome of the
vegetables to be avoided.
(Prepared as follows by a food axport
of the United Btatea Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Vegetable* that are commonly eaten
cabbage and radishes —
are not suitable food for young chil
dren; many physicians forbid carrots,
turnips and parsnips, but when we
consider the value of vegetables aa
food, perhaps the important thing to
do it to sss that those served are
fresh and thoroughly cooked, and
served without rich sauces.
Fried potatoes should never be giv
en to children. Boiled or c roomed po
tatoes or baked !>otatoet are much
more wholesome.
Freshly cooked fruit*—berries,
peaches, and pears, for example—ere
a neglected Item of diet considering
their safety, wholesomenees, and pal
atabUlty. Tbe use of freshly stewed
fruit in the place of raw fruit in sum
mer would probably greatly reduce
the amount of intestinal difficulties.
Stewed fruits with lice and milk make
a wholesome sapper.

Colorado is certain to go “wet.”
These are the cock-sure previictlons
made toduy respectively by leaders of

result of the prohibition campaign in
Colorado. The liquor question is rap

and it has developed unprecedented
‘Dry** leaders declare traveling
men, who are in a position to learn
the sentiment in all parts of the state,
are almost a unit in their belief that
the saloons are going to be voted out.
Liquor interests say this contention
is absurd and that the “wet” plural
ity will be not less than 20,000. The
betting odds seem to favor this con
tention. as three to one is freely of
fered in Denver that prohibition will
be defeated.
Liquor Interests assert that, how
ever the rest of the state may go, Den
ver and Pueblo counties, the two most
populous in the state, will go “wet”
by overwhelming pluralities.

past few weeks has found its way into

war, excepting only tho attempt
of the Germans to hack their way

no apparent strategic reason for
the mighty effort Germany la put

No effective attack can be
made on England from tho tvran
co-Belgian littoral as loug as the
British fleet remains in being. If

Germany's mercy. Her food Im

A raid by Zeppelins on Eng
land cannot be the objective of
Germany’s efforts to gain the
coast. Zeppelin stations In the
interior are more advantageous
than along the sea front, because
of added secrecy. As there are
no military advantages on the
surface or above the surface asso
ciated with the capture of the
coast towns, so there are none
below the surface. The purpose
of Germany's submarine attacks
h« exclusively to destroy the en

shorter from the German coast to
British warship stations than
trim the Franco-Belgian sea
frout, and economy of distance is
of the utmost Importance to jub
marines, whose radius of action
is limited.
At most, the occupation of Dun

Germany would compel England
to lengthen her lines of commun

There is, however, one very im

should think it worth while to
