However, sev'eral of tile students returned to school Friday and put out the paper. Norma Mattson and Herschel Boyd assisted. The Editor appreciates their willing- ness and 'helpfulness in publishing this week's issue. Economy of school materials is very essential during the present depres- sion. We should realize that our school is only allowed a certain suna with which to provide the necessary books and writing materials needed for the efficient functioning of school activity. One way in which we can economize is in the use of paper. One of us may say that it would not make any dif- ference if he or she uses a littlemore paper than is really necessary; but we should realize that if every student took that attitude, there would be a great waste of paper. Another way, perhaps more important, is the use of books in the library, and other arti- cles in the different classes which are there, not only for our use, but for fu- ture students also. We can help in preserving these by handling them careftdly, and trying our best to leave them as we found them. If each student takes care of the school property which 'he uses, and economizes iu every possible way, we will be able to use the .money, which, if we did not econolmze, would be used in replacements, to purchase more books, etc., and so improve our school. We can improve our school if we cooperate in economizing. Let's co)n- ondze. Eric Wilc-x.

A.H.S, FOUR BEGGARS In modest homes and hotels abroad, nuts and small dried fruits are often substituted for pastry and pudding. On the menu, these items often ap- pear as "Trois Mendiants"--literaUy the three beggars. An enquiring tour- ist was informed that ancient beggars were said in their wanderings to have subsisted largely on nuts and dried fruits, hence the name. On the modern French nlenu, which reads "Quatre Mendiants", one finds four varieties of nuts and fruits, usu- ally almonds, walnuts, raisins and figs. 1~1 selecting a mixture, it is well to buy each variety separately. Layer raisins are best, clipped to a size suit- able for individual serving. A novelty in the way of spiced raisins, a stuffed fig or a ball of chopped nuts and dried fruits sometimes called "plum pudding candy" might be introduced. This is easily made by lmtting through the grinder equal quantities of seeded rai- sins, pitted dates, layer figs, cooked dried apricots, and assorted nut-meats. The paste is then formed into small balls and rolled in granulated sugar or grated orange peel. Figs when steamed, cut open and stuffed with chopl)ed nuts or candied cherry are delicious. Nuts and fruits are an acceptable and healthful conclusion to a meal, whether it be luncheon, dinner or supper.--Women and Their Work, in The Independent Forester. THE ALP,.
