Casey Foster, who cooked for ten years
at the Chi Omega house arid who has

the Phi Mu house, has one recipe stored
away in her brain which she favors above
all others for a Thanksgiving dinner.

TIiank-giing is a day of decorations.
Columbia woods offer bright red leaves
of sumach and deep maroon clusters of
buck berries. There is ceda? to add a
touch of green to the decoration. The
observant person may still find plenty
of brilliantly colored oak leaves along
the rock quarry or the Providence road.
These arc the leases on the sprouts near
the foot of the oak trees.
Columbia shops are also prepared for
Thanksgiving decorations. Fluffy yel

has the larce and the small turkey
stickers, which, when pasted on a plain
visiting card, serve admirably for place
cards or, when placed on the individual
cake, cam out the spirit of the day.
If jellow chrysanthemums are UJ
in decorating the house, then the place

All these are your gifts:
Twilight with its thin gold veils,
And the scarletfiush of dawns;
Bird voices lost in surging ecstasy.
Woods in their pungent fragrances,
And a flower's wet caress
All these and more.
The simpleness of homely things:
The friendly shine of a new-scoured crock;
Holiday apples like wrinkled red moons;

IS "MUM" TIME HERE
Thanksgiving-time is Chrysanthemum
time in Columbia. Homecoming, foot
ball and "mums" are inseparable
thoughts. Columbia florists have for
months passed been busily growing the
big jellow blossoms until at present there
are nearly 12,000 of them that will be
at the height of their beauty for Thanks
giving. From almost pre-historic times the
chrj santhemum has been a favorite flow
er of oriental nations and in modem dajs
the Europeans and Americans have pur
sued its cultivation with a curious ardor
and delight, Lovely in color and in
shape, possessing decorative abilities that
outstand any other fall flower, this plant
maj well be called the star-ej-ed daugh
ter of the fall.
The hothouse varieties need careful
attention. Two stems are allowed to a
plant and one bud to a stem this in
sures a big, healthy plant. The temper
ature during the day is kept at from 65
to 75 degrees and at night is low'ered to
50 or 60 degrees. i
For centuries the flower was cultivated
in China, where it originated, and later
in Japan. Uie Chinese gardeners grow
the chrjsanthemums into fantastic forms
such as pagodas, horses, stags, and ships
but the Japanese far outrival their neigh
bors in culture and worship of the plant.
In Japan the chrj santhemum season
is looked forward to with eagerness. A
certain day is set apart as a festival and
homage is paid the national emblem,
the many-hued chrj santhemum.
The Imperial Order of the Chrysan
themum is the most distinguished of dec
orations of the Japanese Empire. It was
founded in 1876 and is bestowed only
upon royal personages. The flower, or
"kiku," as it is called there, is used as
an official shield. The commonest girls'
name there is O kiku San, which in our
language means Honorable Miss Chrj
santhemum. It is nearly two hundred and fiftj
years since the 'plant first tecame known
in Europe. Holland claims six varie
ties as early as 1690 but these plants
In England, in 1764, the Erst known

Baker's Girl Mingles With. Doctor's
Daughter in Modern College Classes
Average Catalog Expenses Range From $365.65 to
$1,031.71, Depending on Institution.
Time was when only the doctor, law
yer, merchant and chief could send his
daughter to college, and then he had to
be a rich one of his profession.
But today the daughter of the butcher,
the baker, the candlestick maker, may
go to college, too, regardless of her fatli-
'cr's small income.
Just what it costs a girl to go to col
lege for a year ranges from 3365.65 to
51,031.71, depending on the college she
'attends according to figures compiled by
the American Association of University
Women, which has made a survey of
girl students expenses in 114 colleges
and universities, two of them in Canada,
the others in the United States.
The survey was made as an aid to
prospective college students, to parents,
to educational and vocational counsel
lors, to administrators of scholarships
and loan funds, and others needing to
limit as much as possible the expense
of college education for women. The
questionnaire which was sent out laid
special emphasis on the cost of books,
recreations, dues, contributions and in
cidentals, recognizing that a banana split
and an occasional picture show are as
essential to the college girl's education

lumbia married women, society leaders,
fathers, mothers, political leaders and
the girls themselves declare that it is
an unpardonable breach of etiquette for
a girl to demand pajing for her ticket
or her dinner at the restaurant.
"The trend of the limes would lead
us to think that girls will soon be paj
ing for their own tickets, their own car
fare and their own dinner when escorted
by a man, but I believe that a change in
conditions is not far in the distance,
said Mrs. Nellie Runjon, chaperon of a
sorority house. "There is something in
the make-up of a real man that makes
him want to protect and assist a woman
whether she needs it or not, and I hope
that this attitude will never be abol
ished. Mrs. Margaret Chamberlain, assistant
dean of women in the University said,
"When I ask an) one to. be my guest, I
expect to provide the entertainment. I
would consider it en affront if she were
to demand to paj- half of the bill. The
same thing is true of a girl's demanding
to pay for her theater ticket. Besides
being a grave social error, it would take
awaj a feeling of independence that a
man must have."
Miss Mary Jo Turner, graduate of the
Universitj of Oklahoma and now a stu
dent in the Universitj, exclaimed indig
nantly, ""lfaen jou invite a guest to
dinner, ou do not expect her to bring
her lunch, do you? It would be, just
as ill bred for a girl to ask to go "Dutch"

Old fashioned candlesticks, such as
were once carried up the stairs to light
the family to their rooms at night byj
our grandmothers and by our mothers
are once more coming into use.
In their original form they were known
as sauctr candlesticks, and were made
of brass with a deep base, to which a
handle was attached. Modern candle
sticks of this tjpe are the same with the
exception that they are hand painted and
decorated, and are proving very popular.
Polychrome candles and candlesticks
are perhaps the most popular now, ac
cording to local dealers. The Polj
chrome, or candle of manj colors, as the
word implies, is hand decorated and
hand painted. This is the more expen
sive type of candle. Colonial candle
sticks are also in great demand. One of
the newest Colonial candlesticks is
made of glass, with glass pendants. It
has a blue base, and blue top. Another
novelty is the candlestick made of Ital
ian wood with Polychrome finish, in the
shape of an evergreen cone. Italian
bray, blue and bronze are the latest in
An old stvle Spanish mission candle-

slicks,, which are made of mahogany,
with a shallow base and tall thin taper
ing holder. Another novelty in Poly
chrome is a lamp which is made like a
candlestick with a candle in it, with
drippings on the candle. A small elec
tric bulb fits in at the top, which makes
the lamp look like a candlestick 'with
the candle dripping. This is decorated
in floral and color designs.
Haeger pottery, in colors, which is
more like crockery than china, is a more
substantial type of candlestick. For1 bed
rooms, white ivory handpaintcd with col

Thus rings the ditty concerning one
of the oldest of holiday dishes, plum
pudding. As long as England's older
families can remember plum pudding
has been served as a holiday dessert both
at Christmas time, and at the Thanksgiv
ing meal. They would no more think
of leaving out the huge plum pudding
from their Thanksgiving menu, than
they would of going without a'tcrnoon
tea. Just so it is with many prominent
Mrs. E. W. Stephens says that she al-waj-s
serves plum pudding for Thanks
giving dinner and again at Christmas.
Mrs. Marshall Gordon frequently uses
plum pudding as a part of her Thanks
giving menu, but thinks it a little too
rich for such a dinner. Many prominent
catercsses make plum pudding in hege
batches at holiday time. One woman
makes it in eight and ten pound batches
and then sells it by the pound
to individual customers. Almost all of
the popular eating houses serve plum
pudding on holidays.
The custom of serving plum pudding
goes back to an early date. Since about
1650, recipes have appeared for it in
all of the English cook-books. Evidcntfv-
the custom originated in England.
As far back as history goes, plum pot
tage was alwajs served with the first
course of a Christmas dinner. It was
made by boiling beef or mutton with
broth, thickened with brown bread; when
half boiled, raisins, currants, prunes.

gave a recipe for a pudding which has a
great resemblance to our modern Christ-
mas favorite, but did not include it in
bis bills of fare for winter. Later on it
was included in many recipe books, such
as Kirs. Frazer's in 1750. She also in
cluded plum pottage among her soups.
Since that time, it has been included in
all cook books.
The custom was brought to America
from England, and has been nearly as
popular here as in the old country. Many
Columbia people include it in their
Thanksgiving menus as much or more
than in their Christmas menus.

The average "catalog expense" lends

exclusive of clothing and railroad fare.
It is difficult to compute even the aver
age amount spent on railroad fare, since
it must be figured independently in the
case of every student. The expense of
clothing varies widelj-. In a recent in
vestigation made at Vassar, the amount
spent during the school year for clothinr
varied from $1 to $1,084.50 for individual
students. At most of the colleges, how
ever, the average is said to be between
$50 and $300.
The general opinion is that dress at
college costs no more than at home.
Many, however, consider that colleg"
dress is less expensive, because the
standard of dress at most colleges is not
elaborate or costly. Some of those who
did spend mor? at college than at home
for clothing attribute it to the fact that
they had to buy gumnasium suits. Great
er clothing expense in some instances
was attributed to the harder wear given
the clothing rather than a demand for
more expensive clothes.

careful study of clothing budgets. As
