Its meat is darker than that of turkey, with more fat. A stuffing of sage and onions is most common for roast DR. GARRY C. MYERS, PH. D. Child Psychologist Thirty-nine years ago, little Virginia O'Hanlon wrote to the editor of the New York Sun: "Dear Editor: I am eight years old. "Some of my friends say there is no Santa Claus. "Papa says, 'If you see it in the Sun it is 'so.' "Please tell me the truth, is there a Santa Claus?—Virginia O'Hanlon, 115 West Ninety-fifth street." This letter w_as answered in the Sun by Francis P. Church, the chief editorial writer, and his answer probably has been reprinted more millions of times than any other newspaper article ever written. Here it is: In a Skeptical Age. "Virginia, your little friends are wrong. They have been afflicted by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except I they see. They think that nothing I can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. All minds. Virginia, whether they be men's or children's are little. In this great universe of purs man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect, as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured goose. It is made of bread or cracker crumbs, sage, onions, pepper and salt, some melted butter and moistening. maybe an egg for Today's Recipe ROAST GOOSE — Choose a goose with a yellow bill, for the old birds have red bills. The feet of the goose should be soft, fat and yellow. If the legs have soft down, the bird is young. Geese live to be very old, and an old goose can be by the intelligence capable o1 grasping the whole truth and knowledge. "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exists, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas!;how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus! It would be as dreary as if there were no Virginias. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance. No One Sees Him. ; 'Not believe in Santa Claus they did not see Santa Claus com- ng down, what would that prove? Nobody sees Santa CJaus, but that s no sign that there is no Santa Claus. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see. Did you ever see fairies dancing on. the awn? Of -course not, but thafs no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive and imagine all the wonders that are unseen and unseeable in the world. - "You tear apart the baby's rat- cle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived, could tear apart. Only faith, fancy, poetry, romance, can" push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in all this world there is nothing real and abiding. "No Santa Claus; Thank God he lives, and he lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay, 10 times 10,000 years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood." —o— MONROE-WASHINGTON CIRCLE AT DINNER Monroe-Washington Child Study circle met for a Christmas dinner j party Thursday evening at the! home of Mrs. J.

Scrub the bird thoroughly with soda water, one teaspoon soda to one quart water and soap. This will help remove some of the fat. Rinse carefully and dry. Rub the bird inside and out with salt mixed with some sweet marjoram, 3 little sage and thyme. The usual method of cooking a goose is to roast it. Steaming is only done when the bird is old. However, if you wish to steam the fowl, put it in the top of the steamer, over boiling water, cover closely and I steam one to two hours. Remove from steamer, dredge with flour and roast the rest of the time. Set the goose on a rack in the roaster, as the fat will permeate the bird if this is not done. Place in a very hot oven. 500 degrees for 20 minutes, or until the flour starts to brown. Reduce the heat to moderate, 375, and roast at this temperature the rest of the time. Allow 20 minutes per pound for roasting time. If the goose has not been steamed and is an old one, allow 25 minutes per pound roasting time. Baste with hot water every 15 minutes. After each basting dredge lightly with flour. This will absorb some of the ex- i cess fat. When the bird is done, remove from the roaster, add one cup water to the liquid in the pan and thicken with browned flour if necessary. Some like to pour orange juice over the bird just before removing from the roaster. fairies!
