I The Hot-Lunch Club at school Is be coming ory popular all over our coun try, Une llttlo boy wrote: "i iiku tne ho. dish at noon because you can cat more." One smiles at this statement so natural for a boy to muke, but It Is significant of a situation which Is truly alarming. Talks with groups of mothers bring out their common unx lety over the dinner pail brought home untouched, or the frozen lunch which win thrown away. They know that tin nervousness and Irritability oi their chlldien lire duo to nvcr-cuting nt suppcr-tlmc with consequent un easy sleeping, all resulting from the long fust during the day. '1 lie club may be organized with tho pupil of ten year of ago and over, electing a president, vice piesident, secretary and ttvusurcr. Tho teacher becomes the leader und the younger children are called associate mcmbci; they help with thu various phnse of the work ncronling to their size and ability, but do not hold office nor hand In a business report nt the close of the season as tho active membeis do. The club Is then divided Into thiec groups, each tuking it turn at cook ing, housekeeping und book keeping.

On "potato days" each child brings hi own potato, i no. average con is iwo nnu u nun cents pec solving. .Mention lias been miulc or cost nnu ii treasurer. A ti lule the duties ol The Furl Situation. Governor Allen, of Kansas, Is get ting coal by mining it, while tho gov ernor of Missouri is going to try to jret somo at a conference of other coventors at Chicago, and tho govern mcnt at Washington says to tho people, to "sit tight and freeze. Tho Kansas governors called for 'volunteers to go to the mines und dig coal, and a loyal resDmso came, and ,un army of these are now turning out munv tons dailv. Tho general situation throughout the country is alarming. In all tho larger cities the schools oro dosed .as well as places of amusement. Short hours have been established for the -various businesses. Public wood --yards in cities are being established, .and tho government at Washington, by the miners, for the miners and of tho miners, still reigns. Every effort on the part of the Kansas miners hus been made to in duce tho railmcn not to , hande the Kansas coal, but thus far have failed. Somo coal is coming to the Middle West from tho Wyoming fields. Locally, our people are in great need, but are using wood In their fur naces, but this Is obtained with much difficulty on account of the scarcity , of jabor, tOur school Is still, open and 3ias a sufficiency of coal for ssvoral "weeks.

A record or tno con is kent so that the children inav learn the vulue of food as a basis for good household munuircmcnt. There arc thico nuest ons which are invariably asked when the work is prisented to u community: 1. Duos the cooking tuke much of tho chlldi m time from their school wink? 2. Does It ilLttnct tho atten tion of the other children 7 3. How ls the ouu nment secuied? The answer to the first of these Is that 'practically every rcclpo used Is one whoso preparation may uo oe L'un nt recess or before school, und only mi occasional stirring or other attention Is needed. At five minutes before noon tho cook finish un tho cooking und uro rcudy to servo the children when school is out nnu an hand lire washed.

Tho third uucry dealing with equip mcnt Is not difficult to settle.

Additional onu nment. such as portable oven, a largo doublo boiler, an egg beater and u strainer permit a greater variety or servings. Each child br ngs tils own cun, oat meal dish and snoon from home, there by eliminating a large factor In cost. A cunbonrd niarlo from a drv goods box and a table which may bo loiueii dcck against the wall will complete the woiklng apparatus for the club. In somo communities the school boanl purchased tho utensils, but tho most common way and perhaps the one best adapted to tho securing of the community Interest, is a school social. Mothers' clubs some times hold kitchen showers, where small utensils, spices, rice, sugar, raisins canned vegetables, etc., stock tne wait' Intr cunboaru.
