Mrs. Dorothy Bathgatc, who will conduct the school, says the day of struggling with the baby's food from morning until night, cooking a dab of this and a dab of that, is past. Instead of this tiresome method, iho will show the mothers, and grandmothers, m her audience how to cook seven different foods all at one time! "Of course," sas the instructor, "every mother wants to have a healthy, rosy-cheeked baby. Today, mothers realize that this can only be accomplished by following a conscientious regime of milk, sunshine, fresh air and the pioper diet. To most mothers whose youngsters have reached the age of solid foods, a well- balanced diet is a problem, usually involving constant cooking. But the lucky mother who has an electric range,' can cook one or two days' supply of cereals, /nuts and vegetables all at one time in the steam cooker.

Gill, Duqucsnc University senior, comes up with one that is tops in originality. ,, Gill is what is known as a "Slumber Snapper" whose gentle technique in awakening fellow students for eight o'clock classes has won him an enthusiastic following in men's dormitories, for a price of course.
