G. and E, Florence C. Plondke, home economist representative of the National Livestock and Meat Board, Chicago, will be guest speaker at the P. G.' and E. Kitchen Klinic, Thursday afternoon, according to Helen A. Albertus, home economist at the People's Gas and Electric company. This is the last of the present series of cooking and homemakers schools which have been held in the P. G. and E. auditorium. Miss Plondke's subject "Pointing the Way to a Better Knowledge of Meat," will bring out the very latest developments in meat cookery. "There has been a virtual revolution in the'field of meat cookery," says Miss Plondke. "Age old ideas once thought infallible, have been dethroned. This is not at all strange j when we consider that many old practices really were not founded upon fact, but upon guess work. We thought we were right, but scientific investigation haa proved we were wrong." As an example of the reversal of ideas, Miss Plondke cites the fact that basting of roasts is now regarded as wastful of both time and energy. The old recipes for roasting solemnly warned the housewife to dip drippings over the meat every 10 to 15 minutes. This practice was supposed to add flavor and keep the meat from drying out. The modern way is to put a roast in the pan, fat-side up, she states, and this allows for self-basting. The Thursday afternoon class is open to the public. FLORENCE C.

MODERNITY WITH COMFORT, VOGUE Non-Essentials Going by the Board in Present Day Furniture. We are living in a period when non-essentials go by the boards. There is scant time or inclination to put up with inefficient household equipment. There are too many things to do and see in this fascinating, and sometimes hectic world of Ours to waste any precious hours- dusting out the cracks in the convolutions of the intricate carving that marked the furniture of an older day. Hence the new era in furniture design! Modern furniture is now taken for granted--it has ceased to be a sensation and has become an accepted type of design. One that threatens all others if we are to judge by the reports of furniture manufacturers who say that 65 per cent of all the furniture ordered in a recent wholesale market in New York was of the modern type. Aod as New York goes--so goes the nation--at least as far as fashions in home furnishings and apparel are concerned. Note Real Beauty. Housewives, noting the really exquisite beauty of the lines of this new furniture, the richness of its upholstery, the beauty of the carefully matched woods see not only a more beautiful "design for living" but a relief from burdensome household cares. When modern furniture was still a fad the market in its haste to meet a new trend showed a few inferior pieces. But' that is not true now. Go to any reputable dealer and find out what this "modern" idea means. We wager that when you sec such pieces as are photographed here you will become an enthusiastic convert. Of Muster Designers. The pieces shown in the photographs above are typical of the skill of such designers as Donald Desky --of Radio City fame--and of Gilbert Rhode. These men are producing pieces that should have as permanent a part in the esteem of those who appreciate fine furniture as the creations of Sheraton or Adam. And their furniture is perhaps more suitable to our day than even the finest pieces of an older era. However for those who love furniture of other days there are marvelous and faithful reproductions of old pieces; designed to withstand the heating systems of modern houses and apartments and to fit j in with the scheme of 1934. WEAVE NOVELTY IN TOPCOATS Four Key Models Cover Field for Spring Wear, Claim. Four key models cover the topcoat vogue for spring. They may be classified as follows: The Raglan type which can include the Balma- caan coats; the Polo Coat which may also include the latest innovation the Wraparound, the Guard, fitted coat and straight box coat which embraces the Chesterfield ·ype- These are basic but various de signers have expressed their versatility with some clever modifications of detail. The Raglands are shown this spring, with or without belts and are for the most part single-breasted. The newest model of :he season has large pouch pockets and an inverted pleat in the back from shoulder yoke to bottom. Related to Balmnc:uin. The first cousin of this coat which is a revival from several years back is the Balmacaan. This coat also has the raglan sleeve but is styled with military collar and is more full- draped at the back than the standard Raglan. Another version of the Balmacaaa just introducer' is with set-in sleeves and is less full both back and front than the Balma- caan of last fall. The polo coat hasn't relinquished any of its popularity or its standing with those who prescribe our styles It retains its basic feature this spring but presents a variation that is both swagger and novel. That i? the wraparound coat which has all of the Polo characteristics except that it has no buttons whatever and it is held closed by a girdle which ties in a loop or fastened by a ring. It's of English derivation and is going' big with university men. Is Dress Coat. The Guard Coat is the dress coat of the season and is a prime favorite of men who like form-fitting garments. This coat is a double breasted effect with large peak lapels, shaped in at the waist, full over the hips and amply skirted. The Box Coat has several variations. It is shown single 01' double- breasted, with or without belt back It is almost straight hanging from shoulder to bottom showing but a slight shaping in at the waistline which is a bit more accentuated in the double-breasted models than in the single. Its nearest relation is the Chesterfield which this season mainly fly-front, single breasted, a bit shorter in length than the bo coat but otherwise following the same characteristics. DEPRESSION HAS TAUGHT HOW TO LIVE-GODFREY Iowa State College Official Speaks at Meeting of Young Farmers. "The greatest value we have jained out of the depression is that we have learned how to live," said George Godfrey, assistant to the ·resident of Iowa State college, in speaking on "Agricultural Philosophy" to the Young Farmers' Forum at the First Methodist church Monday evening.

"We must learn to develop an unselfishness that makes life sweet for us and the other fellow. We must _ive of ourselves to the community and underneath feel an unselfishness that gives the other fellow a right to live. Without it we will go back .0 the condition we have been in. We must build on that fundamental of all things, that quarter of a turn of the human heart that gives us all joy and plenty." Professor Godfrey in outlining his subject, which he termed, "so big ] can't get off from it no mattei where I begin or stop," said that a change was needed in the human heart before humanity would rise from poverty to plenty. Had Wrong View. 'During the pioneer days, we gained a natural but wrong sense of life, the struggle for existance. This struggle went on," Professor Godfrey explained, "until it became the dominant goal of life. With the coming of machines, efficiency and better methods, this improvement was utilized to increase material things. The biggest and best was worshipped taut the depression has changed the old philosophy of life and we have come to see that accumulation will not bring happiness." The unsoundness of the old phil- Letter From Whitehouse to Landgren Appreciation Voiced for Plaque of President.

His ability to enjoy life was lost because he had not learned the right use of things. Work Together. "Out of the depression we have gained a sense of what we can do when we work together, which is one of the essentials of living. The rural life that is richest and fullest is found in a community which has plenty of people in it. There was a time when the young persons of the farms went to the city; now they are going back to the farms and rural communities to use rural education in these communities where there is at present more possibilities than at any time before in the history of the country. "Our difficulties will not be overcome by individual living but by community living. We must have an interest to do something in group action. We have had too much of a program of fighting; we need a constructive program to work on. "The older members of the communities have for years been afraid to let the j-oungsters go ahead. It takes young blood to change things and the trouble with the older generation is that it does not want things changed. The younger generation needs brakes but if it has brakes and nothing else we won't go far ahead." Urges G'o-operittioii. Professor Godfrej' urged all organizations to place more responsibility on young shoulders and build on that "quarter of a turn of the human heart" for changed values. 1 Approximately 125 persons at-1 tended the meeting, which was the j last of the year.
