IDo think a yoang woman should enter public service provided she has the inclination? That de paends upon circumstances; family conditions most always playing a large part in a woman's decision. Her first duty lies at home, and nothing can ever change that. On the other hand, I believe that every girl rich or poor-should be trained to do something, either by which she could make a living or by which she could benefit humanity. There is no excuse for an absolutely selfish existence., Every woman, with the possible exception of the young mother with a growing family, should find some opportunity for public service wesk. I believe in beginning early to educate for citizenship. The children sheld be made to realize that citizenship means service. I also believe that in the schools girls should be given some special business instruction and, in fact, all possible equipment that will help to fit them for their partimlar niche in life. What the "particular niche" may be is a hard questioa to answer. You can't lay down any law because it all depends on the woman herself-the circumstances of her environment, her training, tolent and, most important of all, her inclination. . As to the rewards and disappointments of a career of public service, ien ar young yet in their new field of opportunity. But I believe they e go ing to be less material than men; that when they go into pub ie .service. they have bigger objectives and will therefore have bigger re werks Of ceome, they will have the same disappointments that men hae; added to the sacrifices women have to make when they enter public I.: that men do not. As a matter of fact, I believe women are better fitted for municipal pea.mas than they are for national, that their breadth of human sym. -, pIthiy ad estanding of civie problems enable them to do a much r WOW munr ipal werk. In the Bed Cross, for instance, the national ; week is k a huge undertaking that unless we had given women some Si ato nteest them in a local way we never could have moved them. a W tbe' Women of Americ.

Well. you need n't feel lonesome--un less you are an old-time resident of Chicago, where he was a horse-car con ductor back in the eight m' les. Anyway, Knut Hamsun, who Is a ich Norwegian and lives a near-hermit life in the wilds of Norway, has been awarded the belated prize of 1919 Swhereat most Americans are vastly a. astonished. Some old-time Chicago residents of Scandinavian blood remember Knut they seem to think In those days that It was spelt with three letters. "Why, sure, I -kne him; I knew that Knut Hamsun," lid Dr. Anders Doe, for many years prominent in Den Notase club. "He was such an out No, he had no money. That was in the early eightles, when he came to Chicago after working as a plowboy on the virgin North Dakota prairies. He got a Job as conductor on the old we Halsted sAteet line.

His novel of the same title. "Hunger," made him world famous. The masterly and impress ive analysis of the human soul in s "Hunger" is characteristic of all of SHamasun's writings. His great success and fame not e withstanding, Knut Hamsun con tinues to live a solitary life; he did not care for honors. When his fiftl- I ath birthday was celebrated through- I out Norway and the Norwegians I rhapsodized over him as the "greatest I ilving poet."

L That he himself had not aged he I proved by hic novel, "A Wanderer Plays With the Sardine." Subse quently he wrote the wonderful satire a of the drama, "Gotten by the Devil," r which showed that the high quality f of his own dramatie creations was a t not adversely nfluenced by his con- it tempt of dramatic and technique. t His other .drama-the rilogy "At the c Door of the Wealthy," "Qum.

From the pres ent time up to April and May oranges will be plentiful. Most people j dge an orange by the size and color, if mar keting in person; if over,the phone the price, perhaps, Is t the best qualification. Oranges should be chosen by weight, as well as grape t-ult. The fruit may or may not be all edible; if the skin is heavy there a is not much left after peeling, as the peel is of little value for eating pur poses. The oranges that are heavy with seeds cannot be called a good purchase. By testing one of each of e various prices and weighing the pulp S after peeling and seeds, if any, are o removed, one may have a means of b comparing values and of judging of 8 the right kind of purchase. As to quali ty, that elusive something which may 1 taste like the aroma of flowers or be as tasteless as water is hard to choose. So really the old proverb "the proof of the pudding Is In the eating" is the only real test of a fine orange. The Florida orange is usually much thin ner skinned than the California navel, but is often full of seeds. However. d a one will not sacrifice flavor at the ex a pense of removing a few seeds. Or I- anges are not at their best until after b p Christmas and are usually cheapest In e February and March. 0- Orange Skffle.-To the whites of L. three eggs add a small pinch of salt s and beat until stiff, then gradually s beat In three tablespoonfuls of sugar. a Beat the yolks of three eggs until O r light and lemon colored, add six table s spoonfuls of powdered sugar and stir 6 In enough orange jua# to thin to the m a consistency of coffee cream.
