CORN AS SUBSTITUTE
SAVES OTHER FOODS
Many Uses Found by Miss Tingle's Class
—AILCorn Dinner to Be
From salads to beverages, there are
14 ways in all in which corn products
can be used to save other foods which
are needed overseas, is the discovery
made by Miss Lilian Tingle’s class in
“By corn products I mean everything
that comes from corn, including corn
meal, corn starch, corn oil, dried corn,
pop corn, glucose and canned corn,” said
Miss Tingle. Miss Tingle emphasized
the need of learning the different ways
in which corn might be used, saying that
with the expected withdrawal of wheat
it might become a necessity, and that
with the new crop of corn coming in
soon, that it will prove the best and
cheapest wheat economizer.
Corn meal can well be substituted for
flour in making desserts. Steamed pud
dings, pie crusts with the bottom all
corn meal and the top partly of corn
meal, baked puddings and custards, are
just as good with the corn products.
As a meat adjunct or vegetable, it can
be used in tamales. Also fish and corn
meal and cheese and corn meal can be
‘tff it is necessary to fry food, corn
oil is very good. Food for frying can
be rolled in corn meal.” Glucose, an
other corn product, can be used in mak
ing cake fillings and war candies. Corn
products can be used not only in mak
ing soup, but also in the place of crack
The class expects to serve a conven
tional dinner at some future time, in
which corn is used in every dish, ac
cording to Miss Tingle.

GUISE OF SMALL BUNDLE
Smallest Prima Donna to Appear as
Paulette in "Pom-Pom.” Season's
As those who saw her in “Sari” and
"The Spring Maid” remember Mitzi, who
Henry W. Savage is to send here as his
bright, particular star in “Pom-Pom."
She is not much bigger than an ukelelo |
and by no means so monotonous. Her
role as Paulette, the favorite prima don- ;
nn about to make her debut as Pom-Pom, |
the pickpocket, “champion moll buzzer of i
the world,” permits her to be seen j
much in boy’s clothes.
The wirelessed word from those who
have seen her says that in addition to
being the tiniest prima donna who ever
took so great a hold on her public, Mitzi
is the only actress in trousers who did
rot continually try to hide behind some
The present coast-to-coast tour ar
ranged Mr. Savage for Mitzi is almost j

COP WHO WOULD BE STAR
Heartless Director Clamps Lid On,
Officers’ S reen Ambitions.
Thr entire traffic was blocked on a '
busy street in a big city for William i
Desmond in tbe Triangle play, “A Sud
den Gentleman.” And besides nil this an
innocent cop was swindled.
Tt all happened on Sixth avenue and
11 road way in Los Angeles. Director llef
fron asked the crossing officer if he
would bold up traffic while be. the di
rector, made a “shot” of Desmond being
hit by a flivver, and the cop, seeing a
chance t<> act in a picture, agreed. Then
came the disappointment for he found bis
post occupied by a strange officer in
tin' garb of a Chicago patrolman, and to
rub things in the phoney eop held up
traffic while two shots instead of one
were being taken. This picture will be
shown at tbe Savoy theatre on Friday
NEW BOOK ON WAR SHELF
“The Irish at the Somme" Tells of
Gallantry and Heroism.
Among tbe new books for tbe war
shelf is a small, thick, paper-backed
story named, “The Irish at the Somme."
being a resume of tbe various gallant
and heroic duties performed by the Irish
regiments in the great fight of July 1.
101 fi. The author is an Irishman, ‘and |
he does not neglect any of the several
Irish regitnetns, nor one of the many
evidences of Celtic scrappincss. In view
of Colonel John Leader’s reminiscences,
it. is conjectured that the little book will
find a warm welcome.
NEWSPAPER CASE iS ADDED
Relieves Dificulty of Keeping Filed
Copies in Order.
A recent addition to tbe conveniences
of the library is the newspaper case,
along on ; wall of the main room of the
basement. Newspapers that formerly
lay on the floor in the newspaper room,
are now kept in neat paper bindings
on the shelves provided. More than
00 state newspapers are received regu
larly by the library, and with the newly
built case in the basement, it will be
much less difficult to keep them in
