H., Feb. 12,-rAn educa tional shut-down is threat ned in this state if the legislature fa. Is to si pp'.y financial aid at once, was the warn ing given by Albert us T. Dudley of I'xeter, chairman of the House commit tee on education. His official state ment showed that the state efrnration al department will face a deficit of $248,000 by the end of the fiscal year Aug. 31. "Unless relief is granted," said Mr. Dudley, ''every one of the 1!)4 state aided districts will be in dire straits and at least one-third will be obliged to close their schools. The deficiency report is in no sense due to extrava gance but to the unexpected increase in the market cost of every school item of expenditure." The largest addition to expenses ws the pay increases for teachers. This was needed to. obtain the instructors who would maintain the high stand ard set for the schools in Xew Hamp shire. To impress upon the public the crisis that is impending in the up-bringing of children 1,000 extra copies of the re port, with figures on distribution, will be printed and given out.

Boston,. Feb. 12. Almost any girl who makes up her mind to go to college can do it nowadays. Just about half the number of students at Simmons college are working their way earning enough to pay the whole or a large part of their expenses, according to Dean Marion Kdwards Park. The ways in which they go about it are as various as the courses of study. Thirteen art as student helpers in the dormitories in change for room and board. Fifteen more are working in private families with whom they live. Their duties consist for the most part of waiting on table, washing dishes and answering door bells and the tele phone. One of these, a freshman whose tui tion is paid for by scholarship, rises every morning in time to have dressed and eaten, her breakfast by 7 o'clock. Until 10:30 she serves and clears away breakfast for .10 guests in the board ing house where she lives. Her classes tome from 11 to 4:.10. From i to 8 p. m. she works in the boarding house diningroom. After that she is "free" to study her lessons. It takes grit to go through college on such a time schedule. A large percentage of the girls work during the summer. Those in the house hold economies department act. as housekeepers, wait on tahle at summer hotels, or run tearooms; the library and secretarial students substitute in libraries and office; science students work in chemical and bacteriological laboratories. In this way one talented family of small means has quipied three girls with college training. In the majority of cases, it is said these girls get more out of the four jcars spent at college than those who can call on father for arythin tlicy wish. GREAT POLICE SCANDALS.

INAUGURAL BY WIRELESS. Ia the Plan Being Considered by President-elect. Washington, D. C, Feb. 12. President-elect Harding's inaugural address may lie heard from Washington through the wonders of wireless. He is considering a plan to have the ad dress recorded on records and. then transmitted by, radio 'phone from the naval ireless'station here on tho night of March 4. 1 Thousands of wireless amateurs in the east and middle west are equipped to receive it, and it is proposed that "such amateurs organize parties for hearing the address. The naval air station now occasionally entertains the amateurs with wireless music. Amateurs all over the en-it are al ready bombarding the president-elect with wireless calls to agree to the" plan. Prune pies are improved by adding one toaspoonful of vinegar to each pie. The vinegar removes thu flat taste and cuts the sweetness. When cutting out paper dolls, or cut outs, paste a piece of thin muslin or cheesecloth smoothly over the entire back of the paper. Allow this to dry thoroughly before cutting. This will make each paper doll much more sub stantial. a (Jirl students of the Springfield.

Delicious Dishes from Can of Beans. The inexpensive can of baked beans, put tip. hy any of the reliable firms, has much to recommend it. It is true that generally the tiny piece of pork that accompanies the beans is so di minutive that it takes considerable searching to find it; still the flavor and consistency of the beans arc very good, says tho Springfield Republican, and they require so little time to re heat, that they are a beam to the busy housekeeper who wants a i.nljstaiitiul meal at short notice. Asa rule, the ones put up in to mato sauce are to be preferred, and if the housewife will spend a few mo ments in their preparation after they are taken from the can, a very good substitute for the real home-baked beans can be obtained. Take the beans carefully from the can, turn into a brown glazed baking dish and lay over the top rashers of thinly sliced" bacon. Kef the dish in a hot oven and cook until the bacon is crisp.
