“WOMEN ARE ALL RIGHT
Xews Editor of Portland Journal
Thinks Members of Fairer Sex
Can Be Reporters.
“I don’t see why a woman can’t
be as good a reporter as a man, if not
better, if she has the education,”
were the words of John L. Travis,
news editor of the Oregon Journal,
during his lecture on “Journalism as
a Profession,” given in Guild hall
“She should be able to cover a
football game equally as well as a
prizefight or any other kind of a
story that could be covered by man.
I have known about half a dozen wo
men who could cover a story as good
as any man.”
Prime requisites for a reporter as
set forth by Mr. Travis are hcfhesty,
accuracy and education, coupled with
patience, perseverance, tact, a nose
for news and a propensity for hard
“Accuracy is essential. Many a
good story has been spoiled by the
use of a wrong name, an initial or by
the juggling of figures.
“Newsgatherers must make many
friends, these help toward getting
news and are important news sources.
If the reporter plays fair with his
friends, he is often given important
information in advance. Then when
the story breaks he gets it com
plete and straight.
“Old time reporters professed to
sneer at the college man in the pro
fession, but now the graduate of a
school of journalism has the advan
tage in his profession. The schools
are becoming recognized as doing a
“The newspaper game is a gamble.
The dull routine work of getting out
the paper may be broken by the jin
gle of the telephone which heralds the
advent of a peach of a story. This
uncertainty in what is going to hap
pen is one of the fascinations of news
HOME SCIENCE MENUS
The salad bowl and the soup pot to
the family are like the child’s tin sav
ings bank, the receptacle of the small
economies of the house. What would
otherwise go to waste becomes the cor
nerstone of the good dinner, marks the
one who knows how to eat. distinguishes
the provident from the thriftless. Salads
may be made from an infinite variety of
raw materials and cooked odds and ends,
which would otherwise be wasted.
'Market prices have changed but little
since last week, and there is still a grtod
variety of vegetables.
Beef ranges in price from S to 20
cents, according to the cut; pork,, 12%
to 18 cents; veal 10 to 18 cents; the
veal stem being cheapest, and very good
as a basis for dinner. Mutton ranges
from 14 to 17 cents.
Salmon remains at 10 cents a pound,
but after the 20th of this month it will
be higher. Halibut has already advanced
to 15 cents.
Many articles can be bought very
much cheaper if bought in large quanti
ties than when purchased in small lots.
The new crop of nuts is now in, and
it is well to buy these in 50 or 100
pound lots. English walnuts (first
quality) retail at 25 cents a pound, or
two pounds for 45 cents, but 50 pounds
can be bought as low as 18% cents per
pound, of a 100 pound sack for $18.
Almonds in these quantities come as low
as 18 and 17% cents. Walnuts are some
what sweeter if cracked the day before
they are used.
Many cooks waste more celery than
they need to. After using the choicest
parts to eat plain or in salad, the re
maining stalks and most of the tops can
be cooked to use in making delicious
cream soup. Small amounts of fish and
potatoes may be combined in croquets
or breakfast cakes.
Leftover veal is delicious used in cro
quettes and by stripping .the bones close
ly for these and then initting bones in
to the stock pot, there may be almost
no waste whatever. It is well to pur
posely steam more potatoes than one
n/eds for dinner, as those left over are
Left over mashed potatoes may be
utilized in souffle.
Eggs, though high iu price, nre not the
most expensive thing to buy when their
food value is considered.
"Whipping” cream is more economi
cal to buy than "table” cream, as it will
stand much diluting and still be very rich.
