GOVERNMENT BACK OF LABOR BOARD ITS DECISIONS VOICE LAW AND MUST STAND, SAYS ULTIMATUM STANDING SQUARELY BEHIND No Further Action Will be Taken By Government Unless Continuation of Transportation Is . Threatened Washington. The administration, speaking through the White House, has declared its determination to stand squarely behind the railroad labor Ixiard. It was because of the decisions of the labor board that the shop crafts men decided to quit work. The administration view, set forth in language as forcible as the spokesman could command, was that the labor board Is one of the agencies of the government dealing with disputes be tween the roads and their employes and therefore Its decrees must and would be barked up by the government. The labor board “Is the government when it speaks,’’ was the* way the spokesman summed up the administra tion view, adding that this view held, whether the board’s decisions drew the protests of labor organizations because they involved cuts in wages, or whether they were protested by the railroads because they required the management to desist In contracting out repair work to private shops. The determinations ‘ f the board, the administration fur ther was asserted to hold, are by the delegated authority of congress and in a field definitely marked out In the law of the land. The general belief is that ns the transportation act clothes the labor board with no powers to enforce Its decision, there are no steps left for the government to take except to main tain Its stand behind the board’s de cisions.

The beverage is best prepared anil | placed near (he ice and when serving only a small portion of shaved Ice should be added. Glasses In which summer drinks are served are very attractive when made of thin glass and they should be beau tifully polished to add pleasure to the eye. Ginger ale and carbonated waters may be kept on hand to add to the flavor and zest of the drink. There are drinks that are foods, those that stimulate, such as tea, and those which are taken merely to re fresh. Milk drinks combined with chocolate and eggs are a food in themselves. Egg Orangeade.—Take six table spoonfuls of orange Juice two tea spoonfuls of lemon Juice, one egg, one and one-half teaspoonfuls of sugar. Bent the yolk of egg until light, then add the sugar and beat again. Bent in the fruit Juice nnd add the stiffly beaten white of egg. When well mixed pour into a tall glass one-third full of crushed Ice. Ginger Grape uice.—Place In a tall glass three tablespoonfuls of grape Juice, two teaspoon fills of lemon Juice, two teaspoonfuls of orange Juice and one-half teaspoonful of sugar. Stir well and add one-half a glass of shaved ice and fill the glass with gin ger ale. Serve at once. Chocolate Egg Milk Shake.—Take two tablespoonfuls of chocolate sirup, one egg. one cupful of sweet milk, three tablespoonfuls of crushed ice, vanilla to taste. I'ut all together In a large tumbler jar and shake vigor ously until quite light. Pour Into a glass nnd serve immediately. Almond Milk Shake.—To one cupful of sweet milk add one pgg, one tea spoonful of sugar nnd three drops of almond extract. Beat the yolk with the sugar and flavoring, ndd the white stiffly beaten, ndd the milk nnd pour Into a Jnr with a tight cover. Add a few pieces of Ice and shake vig orously until light. Pouf into a glass and serve at once. Apple Water.—Core, pare and cut four apples in small pieces, put them in a pitcher, add the rind of a lemon, one cupful of sugar and four cupfuls of water boiling hot, cover the pitcher and let stand to cool and chill before serving. It is a good and safe rule to sojourn In every place as If you meant to spend your life there, never omitting an opportunity of doing a kindness, or speaking a true word, or making a friend.—John Ruskin. FOODS FOR HOT WEATHER. Nature supplies the food needed for each season. In summer we have plenty of fresh fruitn and vege tables. Chilling the stomach with i<• e s and cold drinks Is not the way to keep cool. A hot soup or something hot at the beginning of the meal will start the sluggish stomach so that it will more quickly assimilate food. During warm weather we reduce the amount of meat- consumed, but do not eliminate It entirely. Spiced beef Is a dish especially good for a hot weather dish, but is very un common. Try it. Virginia Spiced Beef.—Take a sir loin of beef or a rump piece that has been in the pickle eight days. Put in a kettle of cold water over a slow fire. Skim thoroughly, out In a lemon or two with the seeds removed, two bay leaves, a dozen peppercorns and two tablespoonfuls of tarragon vinegar. Let the meat cook slowly until tender, then allow it to remain all night tn the water In which it was cooked. Re move and place the meat under a weight. Ham Mousse.—Soften a tablespoon ful of gelatin in enough cold water to cover, pour over It a cupful of boiling stock, stir until dissolved, strain nnd pour the liquid over two cupfuls of chopped ham, stand aside until It be gins to congeal, then fold In a cupful of whipped cream and turn the mix ture into a wet mold. Serve when luird on lettuce. A cupful of nuts added to the regu latlon potato salad will make of it a dish sufficiently satisfying for the main dish. Stuff tumutveß with bread crumbs and cheese. Pour a dish of seasoned stewed tomatoes over a dish contain ing a few uncooked eggs, stir with a fork, season and serve. For a hot weather luncheon or din ner serve a dish of soup hot and well seasoned, a boiled fish with tartar sauce, bread and butter sandwiches with chilled fruit and cookies for des sert or ?. dish of ice or sherbet.
