DALLAS. Or., April 1. (Special.)
One of the best social events of
the year was held in this city last
Saturday evening when the Canipfire
Girls of Dallas grave a bal masque. The
ballroom was tastefully decorated, with
a perjrola made of green and white, and
bowers of ferns and fire adorned the
room. In a charmingiy decorated cor
ner which was decorated with festoons
of green and white and ivy six tables
of cards were placed. Punch and ices
were served from a charmingly ap
pointed corner in which the campfire
guardian, Mrs. If. A. Woods, presided.
The Campfire Girls proved delightful
hostesses, garbed in their ceremonial
costumes. They also wore beads and
other Indian relics. (

ADVICE GIVEN ON BEST
FOODS FOR CHILDREN
Comparative Nutrition Values of Edibles Are Set Forth in Bulletin Issued
by Department of Agriculture.
WASHINGTON", D. C, April 1.
What shall school children have
to eat at noon in the lunch bas
ket, at the home lunch table, or in the
lunchroom operated by the Bchool au
thorities? To help answer this ques
tion, which almost every mother and
many of the educational authorities are
asking constantly, the United States
Department of Agriculture, through
the office of home economies, has Just
issued Farmers' Bulletin No. 712,
This bulletin was prepared by Miss
Caroline L. Hunt and Miss Mabel Ward,
under the direction of Dr. C. F. Lang
worthy, of the states relations service.
The bulletin, after discussing the gen
eral principles of feeding school chil
dren to provide for activity and de
velop them into sturdy manhood and
womanhood, gives a number of simple
and appetizing menus for the school
lunch basket and bills-of-f are and reci
pes t.for preparing Inexpensive and
nourishing noonday meals or hot dishes
for children, either at home, on a school
stove, or in the domestic science
In feeding a child or anyone else,
the authors of the bulletin point out.
it is not wise to think of any one meal
apart'from the other two. It is seldom
convenient to provide at one meal all
the materials needed by a growing
body, and those which are. omitted from
one meal should be supplied by one of
the other meals.
The noon meal for children, however,
where food must be prepared at home
in.he morning to be eaten elsewhere at
noon, or where the children must hurry
home, cat quickly, and then rush back
to school, offers special difficulties and
deserves the careful attention of par
ents. Before it is possible to plan a ra
tional basket or other luncheon for
children, it is necessary for the mother
to understand the general essentials of
diet for young people. These essen
tials in general are an abundance of
simple foods, carefully prepared, and
of sufficient variety to provide energy,
repair wastes, provide elements for
building bone and tissue, and stimu
To do this most effectively the three
meals each day must supply the child
with sufficient food from each of the
1. Cereal or starchy foods Cereals,
eaten principally as bread, supply
nearly half of the protein (commonly
thought of as tissue-building material)
and nearly two-thirds of the fuel or
energy in the American diet. The qual
ity of the bread, therefore, is extremely
important. Its crust should be crisp
and deep (indicating thorough baking),
at but nOL nara or uunicu. it owoiu wt

be elastic and yet capable of being
easily, broken up. in the mouth vithout
forming a sticky mass, or being too
dry to taste good.
These qualities can be obtained in
rolls and biscuit, as well as in ordi
nary bread, provided they are cooked
thoroughly. The objection to hot bread
is due to the fact that undercooking
may leave it soggy on the inside rather
than because such breads are eaten
hot. The child's appetite for bread
may be stimulated by using different
kinds of bread, zwieback and crackers,
by the addition of raisins, currants or
nut meats, and sometimes by cutting
the slices into fancy shapes.
Cereal .mushes and ready-to-eat
breakfast foods supply nearly the same
nutrients as bread, a half cupful of
cooked cereal being about equivalent
to a good-sized slice of bread. A ta-ble-spoonful
of cream is about equivalent
in fat to a liberal spreading of butter.
2. Protein-rich foods While bread
and cereals come near to fulfilling one
of the important requirements of diet
a correct proportion of nutrients pro
viding fuel only and those useful for
body-building other foods which pro
vide protein in larger proportion as
compared with fuel should not be
Milk Rich in Mineral.
These foods include milk, meat (ex
cept the very fattest), fish, poultry,
eggs, cheese, dried beans, cowpeas.
peas, peanuts and almonds, walnuts
and other nuts. Nuts, of course, also
contain considerable fat. Milk is an
absolute essential, not only because it
contains a large number of nourishing
substances in forms easily assimilated,
but also because, in some way not now
fully understood, milk seems to pro
mote growth and help the body of a
child make good use of other foods.
Milk is rich in most kinds of mineral
matter, particularly lime, useful in the
development of bone and tissue".
Milk should never be omitted wholly
from the diet of a child. If not used
at luncheon it should appear at other
meals. For luncheon, however, it has
been found that such dishes as milk
toast, milk soups made with vege
tables, fish or vegetable chowders, and
cocoa are valuable foods, easily pre
pared at home or in the school, be
cause they require no oven and call
only for simple utensils. White sauces
made of vegetable juices, milk or broth
differ from milk soup largely in that
they contain more flour. When consid
ering milk, the food value of skim
milk, which contains a larger percent
age of protein, though less fat than
full milk, should not be overlooked.
Eggs, the next of the protein foods
commonly given to children, contain
much iron and their yolks are rich in
3. The fatty foods The fatty foods,
such as butter, cream, salad oils, ba
con and similar foods, are important
sources of energy and nourishment for
the growing body. Fr.ts are best given
in such simple forms rather than in
rich, pastries or sweets.
it fresh. Vegetables and fruits Be
cause ordinary vegetables such as po
tatoes, greens, lettuce, green peas and
beans, asparagus and others and tl-o
ordinary fruits do not contain much
fat or protein, their value in the child's
diet is frequently underestimated.
These things, however, should be con
sidered a necessary part of the diet of
the child for the very important rea
son that they furnish mineral and
other materials required to form bono
and tissue as well as to repair wast
and supply some energy. Green vege
tables are valuable particularly be
cause they contain iron in forms whicbi
the body can utilize.
Fruits Contain Sugar.
Fruits contain a considerable per
centage of sugar, especially when they
are dried, and sugar is a quickly ab
sorbed fuel food. As things eaten raw
transmit disease germs, care should
he taken to wash vegetables and fruits
thoroughly in several waters. Many
fruits, especially those with skins, can
be dipped safely into boiling water,
while those with thick skins, such as
oranges, bananas and apples, may b
safely washed even with soap. Dried
fruit; when washed and put into an
oven to dry absorb some of the water
and thus are softened and improved in
5. Sweets and desserts Sugar, as
has been said, is a quickly absorbed
fuel food and simple sweets have
their place in the diet of all childreif".
If not served between meals or at
times when they destroy the appetito
for other needed, foods, there is no ob
jection to them. They may be served
in the form of cake, not rich enough
to be classed as pastry, cookies, sweet
chocolate, simple candy, honey, dried
or preserved fruits, in. i pie. sugar and
loaf sugar. In general, fruits, fresh,
baked or stewed or raw and simple
sweets are much better desserts tor
children than rich pastry, which con
tains a large amount of fat.
NincKfRlrd Mrntii l.intrd.
The following suggested menus for
the school lunch basket give the child,
as nearly as is practicable in such a
meal, the proper proportions
dinTercnt classes of foods:
For the HaKket Lunch.
1. Sandwiches with sliced
meat for rilling; baked apples.
or a lew lumps ot sugar.
2. Slices of meat loaf or bean loaf:
bread-and-butter sandwiches; stewed,
fruit; small frosted cake.
3. Crisp rolls, hollowed out and
