be picked. The Individual specimen in
this case should he the true shape and

should be free from all Insect stings

should be as near perfect as possible.
In starting out, select specimens of
fruits and vegetables that conform as
nearly to the perfect type as possible.
Then pick all of the specimens for ex

With the co-operation of civic and
religious leaders throughout the Uni
ted States, the Near East Relief has
inaugurated its campaign for the
second observance of International
Golden Rule Sunday on December 7.
The aim is to raise funds to provide
during the coming year for 100,000
orphan children under American care
la Bible Lands. More than five mil
lion dollars is the minimum needed.
Setting aside of one day each year
in honor of the Golden Rule as a guide
to individual, national and interna
tional life, is an American idea which
has been approved and adopted by
twenty-three nations. The day, Decem
ber 7th, will be observed throughout

"Chevon" Is Name Given

Hereafter, if the efforts of a number

The word "chevon" was created,
after long consideration of many sug
gestions, by organizations representing
the principal Angora-goat producing
region, it was made by combining
parts of two French words, "chevre,"
meaning goat, and '"mouton," meaning
mutton. In other words, "chevon"
means goat mutton.

Relief as a new, striking and inten

feeding of the children in American

People here are reminded that, how

at least have two bowls of soup if
they like, and two slices of bread.
As they finish their second serving,
they are asked to remember that the

dinner will not lack distinguished
company. Such a meal will be serv

prime ministers and presidents.
The Golden Rule Is a universal
creed. It is a common denominator
of all religious and social welfare or
ganizations. It is a test of cur re
ligion and our sincerity. Golden Rule
Sunday Is u day for personal stock
taking, for measuring our lives by a
universally accepted standard of life
to ascertain how nearly we have at
tained to an ideal. It is a day of
plain living and high thinking.
The dinner, however, is not an end
in Itself. It is an occasion, in the
words of President Coolidge, "for
bringing to the minds of those who are
prosperous the charitable require
ments of those who are In adversity."
