Well what price criticism?
We oftimes refrain from criticising for reasons that are
Most of us stand ready to pour it, but few of us like to
drink from the bitter cup of criticism.
Of course we appreciate the fact that there are those
who criticise out of pure jealousy or because of his or her
desire to remain in a rut. That, of course, is not constructive
criticism—so forget it.
BUT, when criticism is aimed at our failure to grasp op
portunity, to strive to improve in our efforts or to believe
that we can do anything any other man can do, then it
is valuable regardless from whom it comes and should serve
as a source or a foundation for greater effort. Take it and
like it, then do SOMETHING.
When we feel that no one—
Is great but us,
And the world is at our heel,
We soon descend—
To the lowly dust,
Crushed neath Progress’ wheels.
Be er seein yer. S’Long.

How do you do
•*Mrs. II o u s e
wife?” Here we
are with our usual
■weekly suggest
ion, as to menu,
recipe and house
hold hint. Let’s
start off with Jav
•lle water. S o
many people have
•aid that in orur
household hints
Mrs. Cooper
they see the advice to use Javelle
water and they wish to know what
it is.
Javelle Water is made by the fol
lowing method:
1 lb. washing soda
1 quart boiling wrater
1-2 lb. chloride of lime
2 quarts of cold water
Put the soda into an agate pan
And add the boiling water. Mix the
chloride of lime and the cold wrater.
Mix the two liquid solutions by
combining in one pan and stirring
well. Let it settle and clear. Bot
tle the clear liquid and keep in a
dark place. Should it turn pink from
light, it will not be harmed. The
heavy lime sediment from this mix
ture ib excellent for purifying toilet
and drain pipes. Pipes should be
rinsed with plenty of water after
the lime mixture has purified them.
We have been asked for the re
cipe for chocolate pie. Well here’s
a chpcolate chiffon pie. And we
promise that it is good.
1 level tbsp gelatin
1-4 cup cold wrater
1-3 cup cocoa or 2 squares chocolate
1-2 cup boiling water
4 eggs separated
1-2 tsp salt 1 cup sugar
3-4 tsp vanilla
Soak gelatin in the cold water
for five minutes. Blend the cocoa
or chocolate in the hot water until
smooth. Add gelatin to this hot
mixture and when thoroughly dis
solved add the w'ell beaten egg
yolks, salt, vanilla and half the
sugar. Let this cool and when it
begins to thicken add the stiffly
beaten egg whites, which have been
mixed with the rest of the sugar.
Pile lightly but evenly into a b.'ked
crust. Chill in refrigerator and
when ready to serve, smooth a cup
of wrhipped cream over the top.

' Alverno Is a believer in tlie im
portant part played by hats this
•eason. Proof that she regards them
•s one of the most potent factors
in spring wardrobes is the atten
tion she has given them.
Hats ranging from the pert to
the dramatic are featured and in
•11 Instances are created in rela
tion to the costume, as any good
hat is.
One of these, notable for color
combination is a flat toque of jade
green straw which is draped in four
tones of chiffon, fuchsia, char
treuse, purple and water lily pinlc,
the latter forming a veil long en
ough to be worn close abdut the
chin and fall over one shoulder.
This is worn with a semi-formal
tunic dress of jade green crepe w ith
an interesting finish to the tunic,
which is bloused under just above
the knees.
She thinks that the definite
ly lower crown in mist hats is due
not only to the shortening of day
time skirts, but the tendency to
“brushed up” hair as well. This
fashion seen on many smart heads,
she prophesies, will have further in
fluence on hats as the tendency
grows to build the average coiffure
higher, via modified versions of the
old pompadour. The current “an
gel roll” fad is an instance.
. This influence is seen in a dimin
utive, square-crowned sailor of
navy blue straw that stems from
the pompadour age. Trimming at
center front consists of two round
puffs of tiny forget-me-nots in two
shades of lighter blue. From these
a cyclamen colored velvet ribbon
passes through the crown of the
hat to tie in a bow at the back.
This hat enlivens a traveling suit
of navy blue silk with fitted bodice,
and circular peplum.

Carl Van Doren, the well known
American writer and literary critic,
has written his autobiography in
a new book, "Three Worlds.’’ The
three worlds of his life, as he has
recorded them here, are first his
pre-war life, dealing with his boy
hood and youth, school and college
years; secondly, his post-war life
wherein he describes his work as
a journalist and writer, comment
ing here and there on his literary
associates and their books; and
thirdly his reactions to the boon
days of America, the period of the
depression and a summary chapter
which he calls “Resolution.”
The most striking features o' the
book are its sincerity, honesty and
humaness. As one critic puts it, “it
is not so much a ‘life story’ as it
is Mr. Van Doren's reaction to the
changing color of American life.”
Mr. Van Doren says in his book “I
think that the general spirit of Am
erica is putting behind it a dull con
fusion and beginning to free its
great energies.”
A new book which should prove
of great help to workers with juven
ile delinquents is August Aichhorn’s
“Wayward Youth.” This noted
Viennese sociologist shows in his
book how the priniciples of psycho
analysis can be aptly applied to
the treatment of. delinquent youtli6.
By ‘wayward youth' as designat
ed here, is meant not only the de
linquent but also the so called prob
lem children and others suffering
from neurotic symptoms who show
tendency to become delinquents. A
splendid introduction by Sigmund
Prued adds to the importance of
the book. t
A very welcome volume is Ben
jamin G. Brawley’S new book on
the life of the beloved Negro poet,
Paul Laurence Dunbar. So little of
a biographical nature has beeen
written about Dunbar that this new
book will fill a very great need, not
only in schools but also in libraries.
Mr. Brawley gives a very full pic
ture of the life, education, aspira
tions, successes and disappoint
ments of Dunbar, and in addition
gives critical comment on the writ
ings of the poet. The title of the
book is “Paul Laurence Dunar.”
Plans for the reconstruction of
the American High School are well
presented in ‘‘A Challenge to Sec
ondary Education” by Samuel Ev
erett and others. The program as
submitted by these far-siglited, res
ponsible leaders in secondary edu
cation, recommends a revision of
curriculum, the merging of vo
cational courses with general
courses, and more use of second
ary schools by the post graduate.
A glance at the chapter headings
reveals, “New schools for a new
day; Program for American Youth;
High school for a modern age; Edu
cation as a community function.”
Workers with young people will
be interested in Jessie A. Charter's
"Young Adults and the Church.” It
is the story of a successful experi
ment in church work with young
er adults together with the under
lying theory which guided this un
dertaking as described by the au
The plan as tried out with a
group of young adults was for them
to suggest what they wanted from
the church rather than try to in
terest them in the usual activities
of the church. The hook is a decid
ed contribution to literature o n

“I'm sending Jack to summer
camp next Monday,” said Mrs. Rey
nolds to Dr. X, “and I want to be
sure that his teeth are in perfect
condition before he goes.”
“Barring accidents,” replied the
dentist, “Jack should have n o
trouble with his teeth while In
camp. He has no cavities and now
that I’ve cleaned them thoroughly,
he has not deposits nor stains on
them.” Turning to Jack, he said,
“But remember you must keep
them brushed twice a day. Can you
do that when you are on a vaca
111 have to,” answered Jack.
“That's one of the things they
check up on In camp. Gee, they’re
more strict at camp than at home.”
“Is that so?” asked the dentist.
“In that case, you'd probably rather
stay home.”
“No, sir,” replied Jack emphatic
I ally. “I want to go to camp this
year. You see,” he confided, “I’ve
spent the last two summers 1 n
camp and I’m sure to be a squad
leader this year.’
“What does a. squad leader do?’1
asked the dentist.
“Oh, he has to see that the other
fellows in his squad do what they
are supposed to—like shining their
shoes atid making their beds and
keeping clean.”
‘‘I see,” replied the dentist.
“What about personal cleanliness
—bathing and combing the hair and
changing clothing and brushing
the teeth? Does the squad leader
have to check on those items also?’’
“Sure,” replied Jack. "Sometimes
the fellows don't like it at first,
but they soon get used to it.”
“Supposing,” said Dr. X, “I give
you a printed set of toothbrusliing
instructions. Would that help you
teach your friends to brush their
