Education in South Said
to be More Expensive
Why Oregon colleges are popular
for students not embarrassed by
excess wealth was demonstrated to
delegates to a collegiate press con
ference at University of California
Just held. The editor and manager
of the Oregon State college daily
Barometer came home thinking so
much of their home town and school
that the editor stated his reasons
positively for the benefit of his 3400
"Sixty dollars a month is the av
erage sum charged for living in a
tong (fraternity)," wrote the editor.
"Thirty dollars is extracted each
month if the pledge or member lives
outside the house." (At O. S. C. the
full charge runs from 33 to $45.)
" 'Dates' are especially scarce at
Stanford, women when necessary
being procured from 'the city,'
meaning San Francisco.
"Here is what a student's expense
account looks like after he has tak
en his girl over to the city from
Berkeley," he continued. "Gas and
oil, $2; repair broken bumper, $1.50;
ferry toll, $1.60; parking space, 25c;
dinner, cover charge, $2.50; two
small cups of coffee and wafer, 75c
get her out after that if you can;
dancing, $1.50; check coats and hat,
'whatever you wish to donate; an
other cup of coffee after dance, 75c;
then take her home if possible and
pray she doesn't drink gin.
"We aren't attempting to sway
the opinion of anyone, but we would
like for students at Oregon State
better to appreciate their alma ma
ter, located in a small and sensible
tart, animal crackers, or some oth
er favorite article of food. The
"surprise," of course, Is always to
be saved till last.
Crystallization does not spoil hon
ey, or even indicate that it is poor
i;rade, points out the home econom
ics department of Oregon State
college, although some varieties of
honey crystallize more easily than
others. Low temperatures or sud
den changes of temperature tend to
cause crystallization. Honey that
has crystallized can be liquified by
placing the jar in warm water or
putting the honey in the top of a

When buying lamb for roasting,
it is economical to buy a whole
shoulder or leg, even though that
is more than is needed, because
roast lamb Is one of the best meats
for slicing cold, says the home econ

As many a housewife has found
to her Borrow, an egg which has
been preserved In water glass ex
plodes when cooked in the shell.
This is no reflection on the quality
of the egg, however, explains the
home economics department of Ore
gon State college. It is simply caus
ed by the fact that the egg, being
coated with water glass, the steam,
caused by heating the water in the
egg, is unable to escape through the
pores and, naturally, explodes. This
can be prevented by pricking the
end of the egg with a pin before
Cold lunches, carried day after
day, are never very attractive, but
an element of surprise will add a
great deal of Interest to little Billy's
school lunch, says the home econ
omics department of Oregon State
college. One wise mother accom
plishes this by including a surprise
package containing a few nuts, rai
sins, datse, figs, a special cooky or

Mr. Henderson (J. C. Henderson was engineer of
the S. S. Columbia) to send the lamps if 1 could.
