It was immediately roiv-. red to the commit tee on education, Tvhice the ava lanche of adverse petitions had pre ceded It. The voluminous bill, as introduced Is no different than the 'Iraft of a J 'Ian for Needed Improvements in Our School System," as issued by the author. Assistant Secretary Henry C. Morrison of the state board of educa tion, and published in pamphlet form January 15, 1915. lender its provi sions, the control of the school system of the state would be vested in the department of education, winch would have the riff lit to admit tu its juris diction other schools which might voluntarily become subj to the pro vision.; of the code. Morrison Viuiuy.m1 Asked over the telephone last night If he intended to appear before the committee on education in support of the bill, Mr. Morrison replied em phatically, "Pceid.-Mily not; that would be f-ntircly improper!" Ifo said th.-i- he had merely drawn the bill for t state board of educa iinn and ihai it was not his eoncep ...n that, a stale official was expected to Foiicit support for nny measures he might recommend. However, ha said he would be willing to answer any questions that the committee might like to ask him. Mr. Morrison was asked if he had observed In the newspapers accounts of the sreat number of remonstrances against the proposed code, and he re plied in tho affirmative. They had not tcno .1 to change his attitude, however, and ho said, "It's the right thing that is, the principle of it is we mVFt come to it sooner or later, iiiid I am emphatically In favor of it."

Rules Governing Procedure of British House of Comrr.::-3 Will Have to Be Radically Revised to Fit New Times. Members of the British house of commons stand stlf-accused, and worn rn are beginning to understand why ,here was so much opposition on the question of their being allowed to sit in parliament. "The house of common" Is not a fit and proper place for respectable wom en to sit iu," said Sir Uedworth Meux, making a speech in rr gard to the pro posal. "I oppose this resolution," he continued, "not Li-cause I do not love the female sex, but because I adore women. Hut is It a proper thing for women to be sitting here, until 11 o'clock at nl-;.:? When we sit until 2 and ?, in. the morning the historic cry of Who goes home?' will become 'Who will take me home?' " In the future the big strangers' gal lery will he open to women as well as men, but the ladies' gallery will still continue to be restricted to the exclu sive use of women, so that whatever of privileged sex position still remains In parliament will be to the advantage of tho irontie sex. Thus are the tables turned. Many amusing queries are being put to perplexed politicians. The concen trated wisdom of n thousand years has made rules, and the rules have been for men only. One thing that becomes a problem' is the etiquette ot the hat. A rule In this connection is that If a member wishes to address the house he must remain "uncovered." Male members now have visions of the new woman member standing up and removing her latest Paris creation. Of necessity she must have a mirror to arrange her disheveled locks. Another point of etiquette decrees that when rising to speak in debate the member must be "covered." Will she In her hurry grab the hat off the head of the nearest victim so as to be In order? The hat problem becomes more and more complicated as matters proceed. When a member is referred to In a speech by another member especially in the case of a compliment from a minister (imd the male members gloom ily foresee that women will get the lion's share of these) he acknowl edges It by raising his hat. By the time the female member has finished wrestling with half a dozen hatpins the minister will be through with his compliment and on to the next subject for debate. These, and other similar problems, are vexing political etiquette. What Is going to happen to parliament if oil the formalities and rules are to be swept away in a tempestuous whirl of petticoats? The honorable male mem bers don't know but the women de clare the time thus saved will be spent In making common-sense laws for the good of mankind. Gone West. The phrase "gone west," used so much during tl.a war, Is not a new one In the language of the Maori, though he does not say it quite In that way. The Maori religion provides no such place as hell. A person gets his or her deserts in this life and after ward goes by "the broad path of Tane." 1. e., the track of the setting sun, to a huge meeting place where are gathered the souls of all the de parted. There they will wait till mem bers of all the tribes and hapus and families who are still on earth have joined them, when all will move on to whichever heaven they are bidden to go. There are 12 heavens In the Ma ori's mythology. And the course which leads to any of them Is the west. Quinoa Substitute for Wheat. There has long been cultivated on the west coast of South America a plant called "quinoa," which botanists and ceral experts believe may prove an excellent substitute for wheat, In fact preferable to the substitutes now in use, says the Kovember Popular Me chanics Magazine. This plant, now at tracting particular attention because of the shortage of foodstuffs, has been cultivated in South America in more or less primitive fashion, since pre Inca days. The department of agricul ture has imported several lots of quinoa seed and seed of related spe cies, and Is making' experiments with it In the hope of finding suitable soil and climate In this country for its cul tivation.

MAKES ADDRESS AT FOOD HUT Conditions Here Good Chance to Start Fine Organi zation. Urging the women to put their housework on a -business basis, to cre ate an intelligent demand for food, clothing and other household necessi ties, ood to investigate into the pro cess of making focM, Mrs. Howard K. Hilton, president of the Providence -Housewives Ieagtie, told in detail about the work done -by the women of her city in their campaigns and how their persistencs and untiring efTorts brought afoout wonderful results. Mrs. Hilton addressed a number of women at the Pood Hut, of the City Home Kcor-imics bureau, on State street, tcf: ,-rday afternoon, and her talk was most interesting. There are certain advertised prod ncta, which attract the consumer's at tention, that may not be as good' as toe products that are not advertised, or just as good. In the majority of cases, the women will buy the article tnat lias been odvertised, paying more for it. The Hi-ti ewives" league, which stands for the protection of the home, in the buying of wholesome food products for less money, has commit tees of the organization go into the factories, stores, iie cream parlors, and investigate as to the purity and quality of such foods. During the milk campaigns in Providence, the women of the league established milk stations, that were supported by donations, and the milk was dispensed every morning to fam ilies where there were a number of children. The mothers were taught the food value of milk and nurses were sent into the homes to teach Ihe women how to prepare the milk for the children When the -mothers found out the results of pure milk, they decided not to buy any other milk under any circumstances. She spoke of the filthy conditions that had once existed in the bakers shops, slaughter houses, and food factories. Mrs. Hilton noted that the physical condition of many men in America revealed during the war. shows that the food we have been eating did not have the proper food value. A housewives' league is one of the best aids in starting recon struction in this branch of work. In Providence the committee ar ranged classes in the homes of the oreign women and taught them how to cook and what foods to use. The Providence league six years ago started with six members and now has 1,500. Any problem that comes up in the community is reported to the league and a committee is sent out to make investigations. Mrs. Hilton said that conditions in this city are very good and that the women here have a better chance to start a successful organization of this kind. She urged the co-operation of the retailer and the consumer that (hey may understand each other bet ter.
