THE BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIA!?. FRIDAY. AUGUST 28. 193fi ,1 . FINAL REPORT IS MADEJ A.D. A. City Schpol Pupil Growth Is Noted; Fine Activities in Physical Education Despite ono of the sharpest drops In 'dally attendance In the Bakersfield city schools In several years, the sVstem maintained for the 1935-36 term an average dally attendance of • 4693 pupils, an Increase of 14t over the previous year. Beginning In December, an Influenza, epidemic lfa caused the average dally attendance , to drop from 4738 to 4025 In January and to 4428 In February, but the normal ^attendance of 4786 was reached In March. These figures are presented In tho annual report of Alfred Ames, city school director of attendance and physical education, who will bo principal at Lincoln School during tho next year. Many Calls The director says that the ADA was lowered approximately 510 units by tho Influenza epidemic. He points out that the average dally attendance does not represent the teacher load as even at the lowest mark In ADA a total of 5172 pupils were enrolled In tho grades. A total of 1612 calls were made by the director on home. A summary of the visits showed that pupil absences were as follows: 268 cases of illness, 74 referred to welfare sources; 105 cases of discipline, 308 due to change of residence, truancy, death In family, poverty and other causes; 36 cases were handled In co• operation with the district attorney, t probation office, 'police department and labor commission; ftvo petitions filed In the Juvenile court; and two cases were prosecuted In the justice courts. Play Days The most outstanding activities sponsored In physical education during the year were tho spring play days, five in number. These were conducted on a noncompetltlve basis In the belief that tho purpose of physical education in the lower grades of the public schools Is the Inculcating of skills and habits of value in adult life. "These values are greatest when developed through the medium of social rather than competitive activities." Mr. Ames summarized. "The enthusiasm and ability shown by the teachers in guiding tho events of the physical education program during tho past year has been outstanding. Summer Program A summer recreational program has also been conducted under the auspices of the physical education department and has resulted in fine handcroft and art work as well as enjoyable games and rhythmic activities. Tho total attendance for the 10- week period was 61,461. Mr. Ames comments on the growth of community interest in recreation i facilities and he says -the success of preliminary efforts here may well result In "the eventual establishment of that type of program so successful In other California cities." World Tour for Year Is Planned by Kern Family --$• TT, A. COPPOCK. principal at Inyokcrn school; Mrs, Coppock, a teacher at the same institution, and their two children are enjoying a tour of the world.

ARTIST, WIFE ARE VISITORJLLOCALLY Lyman Young Specializes in Ancient Art of Hidden Book Paintings By BETH DYE Lyman Young of Hollywood, believed to be tho only painter in the west who has revived tho art of hidden painting on the foro edge of books, was a visitor In Bakorsfleld yesterday, accompanied by his wife, Ruth Creed Young. They were en route to British Columbia. Held Exhibit Ono hundred and fifty of Mr. Young's portrait drawings recently formed a one-man exhibit at St. Francis Gallery, Hollywood, His versatility Is attested in original thinking in dynamic symmetry, done along with the compiling of a series of plates and descriptions of the geometric method used by the Greeks in archftecture, sculpture and ceramics. The quadrature of the circle has been tho subject of his research, and he pointed out yesterday that tho error involved in tho solution is .00001528 plus, a fraction too close to find on a draughting board. Ills trip to Bakcrsfield was in the Interest of familiarizing local booklovers with volumes designed by Merle Armltagc and printed by Lynton li. Kistler. Shows Portraits He brought with him three carbon pencil portraits which wore shown to local frl«nds. They included studies of Gregory Mason, archeologist and author of "Columbus Came Late," Mrs. John Arensma, interior decorator of Hollywood, and the artist's wifo. The latter was subject for a vignette of unusual interest. Mr. Young's high degree of talent and technical skill were variously Illustrated in the three differing subjects. He studied with George Hess at Syracuse University, with tho Ukra nlan sculptor, Naum Los, in New York City, and others. In his full calendar in tho southland ho finds time for teaching art classes. Tells Process Old linen paper adapts itself best to fore edge painting on books, as it is nonabsorbent und therefore excellent for water color; any rag paper which docs not take in fluid can bo used, ho said,. Mr. Young has the edge- treated, or scraped by BarLlero and It Is gilded after the painting is completed. While working the book Is clamped over a ruler with C clamps, to hold the edge In a shut fled form. When the pages aro released, no painting Is visible. This type of work originated in tho seven teenth century and was revived by Edwards of Halifax, ho explained. Sporting- scenes, landscapes, coach- Ing scenes and nocturnes are included In tho 100 or moro edges which Mr. Young has completed. Ruth Creed Young Is a booking agent and lias many celebrated per sons on her lists. MblM.flMM.CP. inter, end S Ueippom -. M.C.P.

DAOUE)= JTBA B»rrlM SUfl Writer lflLTj me," a business woman • writes to nsk, "what T can servo for dinner that can bo prepared In an hour?" The'ro are HO many (Italics—doll- clous and nourishing, too ( —that can jc prepared In 60 minutes or loss! Ordinarily, dishes that can bo cooked on top of tho stove or broiled In the broiler take tho shortest preparation. However, any concoction thai can be made whllo tho oven Is heating and baked In Individual molds, demands loss attention than foods cooked over a quick fire. At first thought, chops and steaks seem to bo tho only quick cooking meals, but consideration reveals a wider choice. Ulver, beef tenderloin, broiled hamburger, thinly sliced veal and smoked link sausages, pork tenderloin, pork products that can be pan-broiled arc all quickly prepared. Fish for lliiM.v MenlM Fish too, packed and shipped as It Is nowadays, can bo cooked with practically no preliminary preparations. Oysters, In (heir season, are a standby for last-minute dinners. Stewed, scalloped, creamed on toast, en brochetto, baked with macaroni and mushrooms, or dono as pigs In blankets—they are always delicious and, with the exception of tho macaroni mixture, may bo prepared and cooked In 30 minutes or less. SmMl fish, fish steaks, and fillets of fish may bo baked, pan fried or deep-fat fried, pan-broiled or broiled In a broiler. First courses for quick dinners are easy. Soups need only reheating and Reasoning. Vegetable Juice cocktails come in bottles r'oady to bo served. Remember, though, to put the bottle In the refrigerator In tho morning to Insure a well-chilled cocktail. Halves of grapefruit and fruit cups make excellent appetizers, too, and take little time. Easy to prepare vegetables are essential for the quick dinner—or you may rely on canned ones. Cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and broccoli, which should bo soaked in salt water for 30 minutes before cooking, do not lend themselves to hurry-up meals, but tomatoes and carrots that can bo used without cooking aro a boon to the business woman. Salads are not difficult cither, although tho choice Is rather limited for last minute preparation. Lettuce, endive (both French find curly), romalnc. Chinese cabbage criu bo served with a variety of dressings or IIH a base for fruit nnd vegetable nnhuln. (ielnlln In Tlmc-Suver If you huvn it llltlo time in 1ho morning you can slip a gelatin snlad In the refrigerator ivnd by tho time you wont II for dinner It will bo chilled and firm. If greoiiH aro kept washed and crisped nnd snlad dressing mado, little tlmo Is needed to make a salad. Always wash, drain and put Into an alr-tlght container enough salad greens for several meals. This Insures crlspness ami prevents thin dressings and watery salads. Quick desserts aro more of a problem. Simple puddings, quickly stirred up and baked whllo tho earlier courses aro being served, are good. Cup cakes bake quickly and are delicious served warm with fresh fruit and whipped cream. Krosh fruit, alone, Is splendid and erar.kers and choose with black coffoo Is a perfect ending for any dinner. Mock chicken souffle takes only a few minutes to prepare and Is a delicious main dish for a summer dinner. Sorvo It with sliced tomatoes and shoestring potatoes. You can buy thcso at a food-shop on your way home. f Finish the meal with fresh peach shortcake, served with plain cream. MocU Chicken Souffle Ono small can tuna fish, 1 cup cream, 2 eggs, % teaspoon salt, '.t> teaspoon pepper, few grains onion seasoning, ',6 teaspoon celery salt, V4 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce. Beat eggs slightly and add cream. Cook in. double boiler as you would soft custard or cook and stir constantly over a low flro for flvo minutes or until tho mixture thickens. Fold In flaked fish and add season ings and let stand over hot, but not boiling, water until tho whole Is very hot. Drop from spoon onto hot plat tor and garnish with parsley and a dash of paprika. Menu Breakfast—Pears, cereal, cream, broiled cottage ham, creamed pota< toes, cinnamon rolls, milk, coffee.
