History of Doughnuts Short;
Modern Rings Relatively New
The luscious powdered-sugar
covered confections to be sold to
day by the Y. W. C. A. have a his
tory behind them worth relating,
though, as histories go, it is not a
long one. The earliest mention of
them was in Washington Irving’s
Knickerbocker tales, published in
The scene was 1809. The fea
tured performer was “an enor
mous dish of balls of sweetened
dough, fried in hog’s fat, and
called doughnuts, or olykoeks.”
The second literary appearance
of the doughnut was in 1892, with
Thoreau as author and the Atlan
tic Monthly as producer. This
quotation showed that the dough
nut was well-known in 1847: "The
window was the size of an oblong
doughnut, and about as opaque.”
The first mention of a Dough
nut day was in the first volume
of Hazlitt Brand's “Popular An
tiquities.” “At Baldock, Herts,”
he informs us, "the children call
. . . (Shrove Tuesday! Dough-nut
Day, from the small cakes fried in
brass skillets over the fire with
hog’s lard.”
From its humble beginning as a
formless blob of sweetened dough
in a sea of hot fat, the “fried cake"
as it is not quite properly called -
became a thing patterned and
beautiful to look upon. Crisp dia
monds, rich brown oblongs, and
fat rings were the "doughnuts” of
our grandmothers. “Crullers"—
when correctly named—were not
round, but twisted and curled.
The ring-shape'1 doughnut, ac
cording to Artemas Ward’s “En
cyclopedia of Food," was lifted in
to prominence by its distribution
by Salvation Army lassies during
the World war.
The “brass skillet” of Baldock
has been replaced by huge copper
kettles. The “hog's lard" is scien
tifically purified and kept at a
temper&ture which guarantees a
maximum of crispness and a mini
mum of fat-soaking. The golden
rings are dipped in snowy pow
dered sugar. The "enormous dish”
has become a pile of cardboard
covered, sanitary boxes and cello
phane sacks.
But, for all that, it's Doughnut
day again.

Bruins’ last-minute victory in

ington, and they'll do the same at
U. C. L- A. with the students be
hind them.”
Hazel Prutsman Schwering,
dean of women, offered her sup

mission to women students to par

9 and 10 o’clock. M. H. Douglass,
University librarian, volunteered
to close all libraries at .9 p. m
Vail y.rges house presidents to

Program Peppy
Yells, pep talks, and noise-mak

Coach Prink Callison and some of

The rally committee under Vail

event tonight a success, and stu

them for the trip to the depot.
“We’re headed for the Pacific

adopted as the slogan for the foot

Jealousy, the green-eyed

The newcomer is a grand-new
