happy and in good physical condition

“Just a word to let you know that

Portland Bank, Speaks to
Fred H. lleitzhausen, a student in
the ordnance class, of the school of com

government and municipal bonds.
Mr. lleitzhausen is a former student
of the school of commerce, and for the

land, one of the largest bond houses
on the Pacific coast. He displayed a
number of specimen bonds, and ex
plained the purpose of bond issues, and
the varying conditions that surround
their issuance and sales.
"The Fnited States Liberty bonds are
positively the best security in the
world,” said Mr. lleitzhausen. “They
have every dollar's worth of property in
the country back of them, ns well ns
the solid support of 110,000.(XX) people.
They offer a sure and steady source of
income, at a substantial rate, and in
addition to the patriotic motives that
should attract investors, they provide
an excellent business proposition.”

Must Use Minimum of Sugar,
Says Miss Tingle.
Sweets Needed as Part of Reg
ular Diet; Candy Sub
The making of "war candy” and
“menu- making” were the topics dis
cussed by Miss Lilian Tingle, at her
weekly lecture, held in Villard at one
o’clock this afternoon.
‘‘There, are three rules governing the
making of war candy, that are simply
absolute,” said Miss Tingle. First, there
should be no candy made this year by
the old methods, which take great am
ounts of sugar ns n l>Hse. Second, only
one pound of sugar should be used to
five pounds of oft heir matetrialjs, and
third, no one should eat candy ns an
extra, but should use it ns a part of
their regular diet.”
Substitute Fruits and Juices
Some of the candy substitutes that
Miss Tingle recommends are made from
canned fruits, partially dried and rolled
in powdered sugar.
Pates and figs make very good candy
substitutes, when stuffed with nuts or
with peanut butter, flavored with honey
or maple syrup.
Nougats may he made with syrup
stiffened with gelatiue, while a very
good chewing candy is made from equal
parts molussei and Uuro, or other syrup,
and a small amount of butter, flavored
with peppermint, or vanilla.
An excellent imitation fulge is made
| from peanut butter and mashed po
tatoes rubbed smooth with maple syrup,
and flavored with apices.
Fruit juices stiffened with gelatine,
and rich preserves used in the same
way, are appetizing Nuts and fruits
may be ground fine and worked into
paste, with the addition of n bit of
lemon juice and powdered sugnr. Marsh
mallows are made from one half box
gelatiue. one half pint . elly and the
white of an ogg.
In regard to menu making, Mis<
Tingle said, “There are four things to
be considered in the making of a menu-—
time, labor, coat and fuel. There is no
patent medicine menu that, will fit all
persons, or appeal to every individual;
but a good menu should come within
these considerations." A good meal
should be wholesome, well balanced and
Miss Tingle will continue her discus
sion of menu-making next week.
