"Kitchen Magic" is the name of a book in the children's room and that's just another name for good cooking, and any boy or girl who is a good cook, any man who can broil a steak and make coffee right, and any woman who can prepare an attractive mea! is bound to be popular. In line with all the books in this self education series easy practical books have been selected rather than fancy cookery. Since cooking is usually thought of from the. angle of women, today three books especially for men in the house, not for chefs are listed: "Cook Away; the Outing Cook Book: Selected Menus and Recipes for Cabins. Cabin Cruisers, House-Boats, Kitchenets and Trailers" by Elizabeth Case and Martha Wyman; "The Gun Club Cook Book" by Charles Browne" The Staff Cook Book, a Man's Cook Book for Men" by C Mac- Sheridan.

For weeks before her departure the children studied transportation Jack Davidson brought a book "Sails, Wheels and Wings" by Sophie Lilienthal to be read, Doug las Vermilya brought a book on "Transportation" and Betty Lyman, National Geographical maga zines with pictures ot the place Kalliope would see. The children wrote questions for Kalliope to answer by letters from Chicago, New York, the ocean liner and Greece. Bob Alsbury, an eighth grade student, drew a large map of the U. S., the Atlantic ocean and Europe and in this, the children follow Kalliope by putting on it a train from Mason City for Chicago, showing the time o departure and arrival, a stream line train from Chicago to New York. On March 17, they launched the Conti Di Savoia with tug boats to nose the liner out of New York harbor. Already the children have had letters from Chicago and New York and are now awaiting the next one which will be from the liner. Coed Invades Print Shop at Iowa State AMES, (IP)--A woman's place may be in the proverbial home but attractive Mary Burnham, 19, doesn't believe it. A freshman coed at Iowa State college from Baxter, Mary has invaded the Collegiate Press print shop on the campus as a linotype operator--the first woman em- ploye since the shop's establishment 15 years ago. The petite coed doesn't mind working in a shop predominantly masculine. In fact she likes it and thinks the men of the shop, many of them fellow students, are "really swell and very nice to work with." They are always on hand to help her lift heavy equipment and to fix her machine when it goes wrong. Mary keeps in practice during vacation periods by working on her father's newspapers at Baxter, Gilman and Rhodes. She plans to major in journalism at Iowa State college. ·--o-- LICENSES TO WED NORTHWOOD--Elroy Sowter, son, Albert Lea, have been licensed to wed as have Stanley E. Franzen and Margaret J.
