"Evente tumbled over each other,
Margie, during the next few month*.
Jeff was soon able to be moved to
the hotel where hie mother joined
him and they got well together.
"I commenced the rehearsals of
Hanna Frankel and each day I would
come back to find Jeft and hie mother
eagerly awaiting me and always In
terested In what I had to tell them
about the progress of the play.
"I cabled Alma to come and be
with me. We took an apartment to
gey er. Alma declined to see Tom
until one night when he cam· bring
ing proofs that the young woman he
married had been married before.
After that Alma had no false scru
ples. She was married to Tom by
special license Immediately.
"On the night of the opening of
the ι play, Jeff's mother sent me my
Mother's entire collection of lace
Avhlch I had sold to pay some of my
/father's debts. I do not think, Mar
j gle, that In all my experience—all
/ my ups and downs—I have ever
1 knoiwn such excitement as I did on
f the night of the opening of the story
of Hanna Frankel. It almost amount
/ ed {f> nausea.
"Jeff came back of the^geeB.ea_ajrfP
I Ton* and Alma hoijj»P*<r around and
* Τ khew we. were all keyed up to tho
highest pitch. After the second act
there was a cry for authors and finals
ly JefT and Tom wont out. Tom could
not say a word. Jeff, however, man
aged to nay thank you and then,
Margie, the audience called for me.
"I wonder If you can Imagine my
feelings standing all alono tn tho
middle of the stage and before a
wildly cheering audience.
"What 1 said I did not know at the
time, but the morning papers came
out with an account of It on the first
page with headlines calling me an
exponent of feminism. Hero Is an
extract from the Times, perhaps the
most, conservative paper In London:
" 'The greatest ovation oil the
English stage that this generation of
playgoers has seen was instituted by
Miss Paula Newton last night In her
curtain speech at the opening οί The
Story of Hanna Frankel.
" 'Miss Newton was evidently very
nervous. She was called out again
and again after the big scene of the
play; evidently she had something to
say and was determined to say It. "I
want to thank you for your splendid
reception of me and of the play. It
marks a milepost In the English the
atre when an unknown woman can
act In a frankly feminist play by un
known playwrights and gain at once
your enthusiastic approval.
" ' "I know very well that Hanna
Frankel Is not tho kind of young
woman anyone of you would want
your daughters to be, but If one of
your daughters happened to bo placed
In tho same circumstances as was the
heroine of this play, I hope she would
meet them with the same self-re
specting courage Hanna shows." '
"Tho comment of tho Times was
that Ave years ago no woman would
have stood up before a great audi
ence of theatregoers and proudly
proclaim not only sympathy but re
^ElWoTi γρι) ^ ''Γ^ * "β1 ^
" 'Since the day of "Camille" wom
an portrayed on the stage has been
a bundle of emotions, Instead of a
thinking, reasoning being. Tho stage
woman has been a» untrue to tho
real woman as a fashion plate draw
ing Is to the real feminine form.
" 'L.ast night Miss Newton not only
acted tho new woman, who is only
the real woman, but she drove the
characterization homo by her clever
epeech.'
"Jeff, of course, was Jubilant the
next day and even his deur little old
fashioned mother seemed proud of
me, although she was not able to un
derstand how her boy could havo
written such a play."

Women's Work
For Red Cross
Dr. Krnest P. Blcknell, formerly di
rector-general of the Civilian Relief of
tho American Red Cross, and now
deputy commissioner to Europe, Is to
be placed In charge of a special depart
ment under the American Red Cross
Commission to tYance to direct all
Red Cross activities In Belgium. Rev.
John Van 8chaick, pastor of the
Church of Our Father In Washington,
D. C., will assist him. Headquarters
for the new department will be at
Havre, now serving as the seat of the
Belgian government.
Major Murphy has already made a
Journey of Inspection behind the Bel
gian lines and planned α general pro
gram of relief which, for the present,
is to Include financial assistance to Bel
gian hospitals and other relief works,
special care of between Ave and sir
thousand Belgian children In cooper
ation with the Rockefeller i^oundatlon,
and aid to the inhabitants of Belgian
villages who recover their homes as
the Germans retire.
"The work for children," Major Mur
phy cables, "Is not only one of the lln
est works the Red Cross could under
take, but also one of the most effective
In aiding the future of Belgium."
Reconstruction In Belgian towns
will be done In cooperation with tho
Belgian government. Whon a village
Is recovered, the burgomaster and his
assistants and α picked group of refu
gees are allowed to begin the work of
rehabltatlon. The Red Cross will fur
nish them with the tools, furnlturo,
seeds, farm animals and supplies need
ed to holp refugees get on their feet.
As fast as the work progresses the
government will return other refugees
to their homes. The Red Cross will
thus be furnishing In each town re
covered the necessary shelter and
equipment for a working nucleus about
which tho whole community can grad
ually be restored.
Tho work rooms of the local chap
ter of the Red Cross were open this
afternoon for knitters. This work Is
under the direction of Mrs. Wilbur La
Roe. Several women were present
working on the sock knitting ma
chines, making scarfs, sweaters, etc.,
giving out wool to applicants for
ome work and other work of a simi
lar character.
The Kennedale Park Auxiliary of
the local Red Cross chapter held their
regular weekly meeting yesterday af
ternoon In the Second Grace Lutheran
Sunday school rooms on Brace ave
nue. Surgical supplies were worked
on. At the last two meetings eigh
teen Τ bandages, eight triangular
bandages and four surgeon's caps
were completed and considerable
other work started. Many little
"Snippers" were present at yester
day's meeting an]} a large box of snips
was the result of their earnest work.
The workers were Mrs. Charles Jones
in charge, Mrs. Arnold Nlssen, Mrs.
David Hull, Mrs. Lawrence MacLeod
and Mrs. Beulah Smith. The snip
per» present were Grace Struve, Mar
tha Peterson, Marlon aud Catherine
Bartenhagen, Edith Ryan, Beulas and
Edith Smith, Josephine Elllngsen,
Mary MacLeod, Carla Kasmussen, Ka
trlna Peterson and Edna Madsen.
The knitting department of the Red
Cross, under Mrs. Wilbur lyaRoo, hae
been asked to provide sets of knitted
garments to the following boya who
were among the first to enlist hero:
Frank Cannon, Battery A. Field Artil
lery, Eighteenth Cavalry; Axel C. Jen
sen, Troop I, Nineteenth Cavalry; El
mer Lorentzen, Battery ]>, Field Artil
lery; Sergeant Arthur Jensen, Quar
termasters' Corps, and Corporal Chris
Rasmussen, Troot» X, Nineteenth Cav
alry. All theso boys are at Fort Eth
an Allen In Vermont The request will
be complied with at on^e. That all our
boys should be taken care of, and will
take steps to provide such as are not
already being looked after, as far as
knitted garments are concerned.
Next Tuesday afternoon a commit
tee from the Y. M. C. A. Auxiliary will
pack sets of sleeveless sweaters, scarfs,
wristlets and socks for our own Y. M.
C. A. boys who have gone Into service.
They will be sent by parcel post to
each boy, personally.
STORE LATE CABBAGE
A large acreage has been planted
to late cabbage and It ehould be
stored for winter use. No vegetable
Is easier to keep than cabbage and it
should be kept to as great an extent
as possible.
The heads of cabbage may be kept
In banks In the same manner as po
tatoes or beets. Tho heads may also
be stored in cellars by placing them
on shelves. It Is not advisable to
etore cabbage In the basement or the
Btorage room In the cellar, as the
odor Is liable to penetrate throughout
the house. Cabbage may also be kept
In special banks or pits. A common
form of bank used for cabbage stor
age Is made by pulling the plants,
roots and all. and placing them In a
long pile with the heads down. The
whole Is covcred with dirt In the
same way as the other storage pits.
Another very satisfactory method
jf storing cabbago Is to pull the
plants, roots and all, and set them
ride by side In shallow trenches until
ι bed six or eight feet wide and any
ength is formed. This Is enclosed by
ι row of stakes, or by a plank or pole
'rame, banked on the outside with
llrt and supporta laid across the top,
ind the whole covered with straw,
'odder or other material.

YEAST
By Hannah Wi-ssllng.
(Bread Expert, Department of Agri
culture.)
Teast an we use It Is made up of Λ
very large number of tiny plante,
each one of which Is far too small to
be seen with the naked eye. These
plana have the power to grow and
multiply In dough. growing they
change sugar Into a gas and alcohol.
It is believed, too, that they Increase
the amount of sugar In the dough by
producing It from the starch.
If these yeaet plants are well dis
tributed throughout α mass of dough
many bubbles with thin walls will be
formed. If they are not well dis
tributed there are likely to be no bub
bles In some places and large bub
bles with thick walls In others.
Why "S|K)iigc" It Set.
Yeast plants when deprived of
water and food stop multiplying.
They may be kept alive, howevor, un
der these circumstances, and when
water and food are supplied to them
they soon begin to Increase In num
ber. In a soft dough or "sponge"
they multiply rapidly at favorable
temperature. The purpose of setting
a sponge, therefore, Is to get a large
number of yeast plants from a few.
Like all living bodies, yeast plants
can bo killed by heat: can be Injured,
if not killed, by extreme cold; and do
their best work at certain tempera
tures. These temperatures used In
bread maltim; are between 75 and 90
degrees Fahrenheit, the most favora
ble temperature being about 8β de
grees.
Three Kinds of Yeast.
The kinds of yeast moet commonly
used are compressed, dry and liquid
yeast. The flrst-named Is very con
venient, for in this form the yeast
plants are active and ready to begin
their work. Dry yeasts can be kept
for a long time.
Liquid yeast, like compressed yeast.
Is In active condition. It Is easily
made at home, and In a cool place
can be kept for about two weeks. Its
ingrodlonts are water, yeast, and α
substance which will serve as food
for the yeast plants. This food Is
usually potato or hops. The follow
ing recipe will be found satisfactory:
Home-Made Liquid Yeast.
Four medium-sized potatoes, wash
ed and pared, 1 quart hot water, one
fourth cupful sugar, 1 teaspoon salt,
1 cake dry yeast soaked In one-fourth
cupful lukewarm water, or 1 cake
compressed yeast.
Grate or grind the potatoes directly
Into the water (a food grinder Is con
venient for the purpose). Boll about
5 minutes, stirring constantly. Add
the sugar and salt and allow the mix
ture to cool. When lukewarm add
tho yeast. Keep at ordinary room
temperature (about 70 degrees) for
24 hours, when It will be ready for
use.
This yeast should be kept In a cool,
dark place. An earthen jar or enamel
ware pall Is a good container for It
and should be scalded before the
yeast Is put into it.
In making bread a small amount
of dough may be saved for use In
place of yeast at tho next baking. The
same care, however, mutt be taken
with it is with liquid yeast; It musk
be kept covered and in a cool place.
Still lime tor
·—- Some Canning
Don't be weary of well Joins, Mrs.
Housekeeper. There Is still timo to
can and preserve many hundred, yes,
thousands of cans, Jars and glasses of
fruits and vegetables. The weather
certainly was weakening with Its ex
cessive heat during the time of the
greatest surplus of perishable fruits
and vegetables. But there /are tons
and tons of food stuffs yet to be saved.
It Is not too late to begin, If you have
not been able to store away or con
serve somo of the vast quantities of
supplies to be found all around us.
While many of the soft fruits and
early vegetables are gone, good food
stuffs are yet plentiful and chcap.
String beans, lima beans, corn, squash,
■gg plants, tomatoes, peaches, cabbage,
cucumbers, boets and carrots are very
abundant and should be conserved for
winter use In any one of the various
ways that have been talked of so much
the past month by the press of the
country; canning, preserving with salt
3r sugar, drying and pickling.
A hard winter Is ahead of every one
>nd those not well supplied with mon
îy to pay the excessive prices asked for
food will suffer. It behooves every
housekeeper to get her cellar, store
rooms and closets well stocked with
every available kliid of food stuffs. Bo
much is still going to waste for lack
at α little tlnio, personal thought and
work on the part of the housewife that
when the need of these very wasted
food supplies is felt, great indeed will
l>e the remorse of some careless wim
on, wfto did not prepare for the day of
privation when years of prosperity
were here.
If you have not put away a goodly
supply of fruits and vegetables, utart
today, by canning salting or drying
string beans, corn, beets, tomatoes,
squash or pickling or salting cucum
bers or cabbage, preserving peaches,
:omatoes, plums, grapes, apples, pears,
lulnoes and many other fruits and
tegetables yet In market. Make the
)ld fashion goodies; apple or pear but
ter, quince honey, grape preserves,
[>lum Jam for the children or grown
'oiks to oat on bread, this winter ln
<tead of butter. They are nourishing
md urnlsh a very palatable means of
supplying the body with much needed
sugars, acids, minerals and medical
ngredlents. They are much cheaper
:han fats, and they furnish a variety
if eatables at a time when these foods
ire scarce.
Don't let good food spoil. Its a
•rime against humanity. Thousands
ire starving for food in distant eoun
rles and even in nearby places. Every
voman and man too, should ask them
lelves, what 1111 I doing to help over
come this sad state.. Am I feeding tho
lungry, am I binding up tho wounds of
he ntricken—as has been commanded
if yore.
Women con not go to the front and
Ight as men do but they can light with
vomen's own weapons in her rightful
lomaln—the kitchen—and do much
ο win thla great war for humanity,
iut she must be about this great busl
iesH now while the opportunity is ripe,
Khlle the harvests of the fields, which
lave grown so abundantly the past
oason, are here to use. Her part In
his great fight Is to feed her govern
lent's soldiers, sailors, civilian popula
lon, and Allies, help the farmer·,
ighters and needy ones, hold up tho
lands of the workers, cheer and en
ourage the weak.
While the summer and autumn are
till here and before the blackness nr
Ives, It Is well to prepare for the
reary and dismal days that are com
ig If each housekeeper has done
er part In conserving the great bar
est ao plentifully bestowed upon the
eoplo of the Untied States, by putting
side for winter use large quantities of
^ls surplus then she will have peir
>rmed her duty In the best way poe
ble. But If she has not then let the
ttlo time that remains, be used profit
bljr or ab« will. Indeed, be filled with
Mnorse In th· futuhe when she rea
ïes the great need of food conserva

School News
It should be as muoh α matter of
course for a child to stand straight
as to spell correctly. It should be at
well Informed as to the elements of
a balanced general diet as In regard to
the dates of the presidents or the cap
itals of states. The habit of hand
washing before eating should be so
deeply Ingrained In the child that It
will not tolerate Inadequate facilities
In the homo or later in the workshop.
Those were pointa made In the
course of a ploa for medical inspec
tion in all schools by Dr. Haven Em
erson, Commissioner of Health of New
York city. The plea was made be
fore 2,1100 school principals and
others.
"We want every school child exam
ined by a competent physician an
nually," declared Dr. Emerson. "The
more this is done on the request of
the parent, at the parent's expense,
by the family physician, the more
permanent will be the results.
"We also want evory teacher ex
amined annually and her every ill
ness accurately reported.
"We want, children so to learn
the fundamental laws of personal hy
Igene that they can protect them
selves against Industrial hazards af
ter leaving school. We want children
to have so thorough an understanding
of the physical damage from alcohol
and narcotic drugs—beer, tea, coffec
and tobacco—that even the Inertia of
their home a htdnllvoco dshrdlu
their home and the civic environment
will not detract their habit.
"Tho graduating diploma should be
a certiflcate of physical as well at
mental preparedness to continue to
learn and serve.
"We look forward lo the time when
graduation will be a privilege with
held until the pupil can present a
clean record as to physical fitness and
an understanding of the rudiments of
personal hygiene sufficient to protect
him 111 later life."
The Science Club met In the labor
atory yesterday afternoon at the close
of school for Its first meeting of the
year. Professor Sturgls called the
meeting to order and addressed the
members briefly on the aims of the
coming term. He stated that although
last year was the most successful one
In the career of the Science Club, he
looked for etlll greater things for tho
coming year. Professor Bturgis then
appointed Rodney Kielnhans, vice
laH'
season, acting* chairman ta
over the meeting-. A nominating com
mittee, composed of Irene Nielsen,
chairman, W&ldemar Hoyer and
Henry Kutcher, was chosen to draw
up a slate of officers for the society
to vote on at the next meeting. A
membership committee, composed of
Helen Rlelley, chairman, Carl Olsen
and Mark Sheyer, was selected to
boost the membership of tho organ
ization. Several business matters were
discussod. The membership commit
tee was instructed to post α notice in
forming all students desiring to enter
the Science Club to apply to one of
the committee. The date of the next
meeting was set for Friday, Septem
ber 28.
The club will probably be allowed
to conduct its meetings during the
regular school study hour, that is,
from 2:40 to 8:30. Tho charter mem
bers present yesterday were Misses
llielley, Nielsen and Lesko, Messrs.
Sheyer, Kutcher, Kielnhans, Olson
and Hoyer. New members that at
tended the meeting yesterday road as
follows: Misses A. Henry, Vincent
and Skov, Messrs. Gindin, L·. Daltz,
Cohen and Goldman.
Yesterday morning the omeors ror
the athletic association of the Forth
Amboy high school wero voted on and
by 2 o'clock the completo returns
were posted. The Hamlltonlans cur
ried nearly the entire school. The
following were the officers eldcted for
the coming season: President, Leon
Roth; vice president, Mary Nolan;
secretary, Frances Hance; manager
boys' basketball, Albert Loder; assist
ant manager, J. Illbbard; manager
boys' baseball, William Allen; assist
ant manager, Harold Hansen; man
ager girls' brtsketball, Kthol I.ewie;
assistant manager, Elizabeth Mncan.
I^eon Roth, newly elected presi
dent, was the crack guard of last
year's baekotball tossers and α scrub
member of the basoball nine. Mary
Nolan, the vice president, has been
prominently associated with class
basketball for the past few years.
Frances Hance, a member of the
1920 class, ran the closest race of
them all, beating; out her opponent,
Ada Wllentz, by only a scant margin.
Albert Loder wna the assistant man
ager of tlio hoys' basketball team
last year. J. Hibbard, the diminutive
all-around athlete, Is a hustler and
will surely fit In well In his present
position. William Allen. baseball
manager, Is the speedy little player
who gained a regular berth on last
year's nine, anil "Fat" Hanson, his
assistant, was η star member of the
Freshman basketball quintet last
year. Ethel Lewis, the tall center of
the girl's basketball team, has played
on the crimson and white team for
the past several years. Elizabeth
Macan, the assistant, was a scrub
member of last, year's girls' basket
ball team; she will surely land a reg
ular poaition this season.
HOW TO DRY PEARS

Or core and slice In ring*, using
fruit or vegetable slicer.
l>o not let stand long before dry
Ιηκ.
To prevent discoloration, dip fruit,
as It In prepared, for 1 minute in a
cold salt bath (1 ounce of salt to 1
gallon of water.)
Place In colander and set in con
tainer of hot water. Placo cover on
container and steam for 10 minutes.
Remove surplus moisture by plac
ing fruit between towels, or by ex
posing to the sun and air.
Spread thinly on trays or earthen
ware plates.
'Dry in »un. In oven, over the kitch
en stove, or before an electric fan,
until the pears axe tough and some
what leathery.
Stir from time to time. The finish
ed product will not look like fresh
fruit, but It's food to eat.

and Quaker Oil of Balm a trial. These
remedies seemed to give me relief a'ler
Γ had taken them only a few days. This
surely encouraged me. Each day I
kept getting better and today I think I
can honestly state that I am cured. All
the pain has left. I can walk without
a cane and consequently I am only too
glad to advise all sufferers of rheuma
tism to try Quaker Herb Extract and
Qauker OH of Balm."
Mrs. J. O. Gravitzky, aged 69, was a
long time sufferer from indigestion and
constipation. Everything she ate
I seemed to distress her and sour on her
I stomach. She never could get rogular
bovrel action and was obliged to take a
big- dose of salts daily. This madj her
stomach worse than ever. She called
on the Quaker Man and was advised to
drop everything and try Quaker Herb
Extract. She did so and now reports a
most wonderful change In her condi
tion. This remedy acted like magic.
She can now enjoy her meals, no dis
tress follows and her food digests
properly. She is wild in her praise for
Quaker Herb Extract and is recom
mending it wherever she can.
Have you catarrh, rheumatism o?
stomach troubles, then why not get
well? Call at Prankel's drug etore, cor.

A Paris Favorite
I" r — -t
Marked favor will be given all
black costumes this winter. An au
thoritative photo sent from Paris In
dicates the popularity of all-black
even for e:l rls. The frown Is designed
for semi-dress occasions, or Informal
evening functions. It Is made of
black taffeta—and note that It is
sleeveless—a feature of the simplest
as well a· the most elegant of all
Parisian evening gowns.
Note also the round neck, In thta
case cut rather high.
This frook la t/plcol of prevailing
Paris mode»—there 1» no particular
feature to distract the attention. The
entire thought of the designer wae
given to the general outline and the
"ensemble" or effect of the sown an &
I whole.

novel called "A Rose Garden Hus
band," by Margaret Wlddemer, as tho
basis for her picture. Many of the
scones are laid In a rose garden, and
Miss Baldwin obtained permission to
set up her cameras In one of the most
boautlful rose gardons of Southern
California. Tho party, composed of
the players, the director, assistant, and
cameraman, motored out to the gar
den, where they spent several days
taking scenes in some of the rosiest
parts of It. The result Is that no love
