DENTOR JOURNAL Page 8 KELVIN ft JOHNSON, Ino, Publishers Saturday Morning, December 17, 1938 THE OYSTER--THE TRUE SYMBOL OF GOOD EATING Social Customs Dr. Lewis Radcliffe, Director The Oyster Institute of North America, Washington, D.- C. Writings arc replete with references to Social Customs hi which oysters had an important part. "The Oyster and Parched Pea Club" of Preston in Lancashire, England (1771 to 1941) included among its club rules "That a barrel of oysters be provided every Monday night ilur Ing the winter season at the equal expense of the members, to be opened exactly at seven o'clock." "The Na lives" a club at Jesus College, Cambridge, founded in 1877, had a rule which provided that "there be an oys ter supper every fortnight." At oys ter suppere in the midland countries at Christmas, an oyster barrel com pletely covered with white cloth stood in the middle of the table. On either side of the barrel were vases of holly with plates of butter pats, halved lemons, salt, pepper, vinegar cruet with loaves of oyster bread baked for the occasion. Ale, porter, light wines, English gin and Irish or Scotch whiskey were served. The gen tlemen, armed with an oyster knife and a coarse towel, opened the oye ters for his lady and himself. A century ago in old New England and New York a bowl of piping hot oyster stew formed the traditiona" Christmas Eve supper, now practiced only by a few families who have preserved the tradition along witl grandmother's Chippendale and pew ter. Coming from the Merrie England of their ancestors, the custom of serving oysters on Christmas Eve wn quite natural in a country which had an abundance of fat, delicately flavored oysters. While the oyster stew was the favorite method of serving them scalloped oysters also had their de- vottees. The homemakers of toda would do well to revive this custon for the oyster *aa a happy way of inducing sleep of the deep and rest fnl kind. Then too, it is easy to pre pare, requires no expensive ingred ients, no left overs striving for c corner in a refrigerator filled with Christmas foods. And then too, the ease with which the stew is digested may well prepare you to do justice to that Christmas dinner. That this traditional custom stii exists was revealed by replies recent ly received from the food editors o: the nation's largest newspapers, mag azines and farm papers. From the editor of a magazine pub lished in San Francisco came the re port that "it happens that in my fam ily oyster stew has been the tradi tional Christmas Eve Supper--big bowls of it, with toast and hard rolls as well as crisp crackers and celery and radishes." The food editor of a Boston pa per referred to the tradition of serv ing oyster stew on New Year's Eve and added "In small communities and among simpler folk it is still custo mary to hold watch night services at which oyster stew is usually served, either during the evening 01 after midnight." She points out tha the oyster stew and scalloped oys ters have a firm hold on the New England appetite for Sunday nigh supper, throughout the winter. "I do know from family tradition* writes the food editor of a Provi dence, R. I., paper, "that I was brough up to believe that neither Thanks giving nor Christmas would be prop erly celebrated unless oyster stew was served the night before. I can rot say, but I think the idea grew right here in the state and in that section known as South County. "Sometimes the family has escal loped oysters instead of stew tha night, but that never went over eo big." Then too, what a variety of oyster stews there are--Colonial, Dutch Philadelphia, Grand Central Oyster Bar and many others. And be certain to use plenty of cream and butter i you want a tasty dish. A savory oyster stew is an ideal dish for that fourth meal, which so many persons now enjoy. SCHOOL NEWS Continued from page 1 Now Santa please don't forget the little angels of C. H. S. this year. Flash! Flash! Glee Club Organized On Monday the Girls' Glee Club decided that they would perhaps be more successful as a club if the} organized. They elected Louise Brown as president and Joyce Kern as music chairman. Joyce is to take care of the music so that as little as possible will be lost. Senior Class Elections The eventful day has passed when the Seniors elected their class officers for their last year in school. There wasn't much time for electioneering bat we noticed several ambitious lads combing their hair and straightening their ties. There were no nominations, everyone voting for the one they wanted for that office. Then the votes were tabulated and we votec again for one of the pupils who had the highest number of votes the first time. The newly elected officers are: President, Robert Thawley; vice-president, Sherman Tribbitt; .secretary, Irma Henzen; treasurer, Bryant Cawley. As the election didn't take all the period, Mr. Crouse used the remaining time to talk about our rings, Since we don't have a standard ring, the earliest we can get our rings is February. Under the leadership of these new officers we should make this last year the best one yet! Junior News When we report only one subject at a time it eeema that there Is a long time between editions, so well report briefly on some of our subjects. French: The class as a whole is improving in translation and also in reading in French. We have Just fin- shed our third test, which comes af- er every five lessons. Chemistry: Who knows what K2 04 is? Just ask our chemUtry class. Ve know it because we have almost :ompleted the topic, "Formulas" in jur chemistry work book. On Tues- lay we expect but don't relish, a chemistry test. History: So far history has been traveling along smoothly but this smoothness may be upset by a debate. Should the Electoral College Be Abolished?" is the subject. Mary Ann Reinhold, Bill White, and Wayne Cawley said it should. Frank Zciglci and Charles Matley chose the. other side. As yet they have not chosen their third member. It may not be us fary a piece of oratory as was that reply to Hayne by Webster, but anyhow we're sure that there will be plenty of .arguments for and against it, and may the side that wins present the best arguments (of course it will). Sophomore Tattling "lo Staturnatem!" If you read thi-- on one of your Christmas cards don't be surprised. To put your mind at ease it's Latin and means "Merry Christmas". In Latin we are making Christmas cards and drawing Roman scenes on them. We hope to turn in some very exquisite masterpieces. Our Biology class is taking on the looks of a poultry farm. No, I'll take it back. It's not that bad. Everyday one of the sophomores brings in an egg and we watch the different stages in the development of a little chick. We find these classes very interesting and hope they will benefit us. Freshman News With the tinkle of Santa's bells faintly ringing in our ears, we Freshmen are a little excited, but we are progressing just the same. With our notebooks on government well under way, Civics class is "soft". In English class we have dropped our "Prose and Poetry" and are studying correct speech. The toys for the Manual Arts department are slacking up so keep looking. Well, eo long. Be seem you. Seventh Grade News Seventh grade has lost two splen- Jid students this week. Esther Neigh- Dors has moved to Goldsboro where ier father is employed in the CCC :amp, and Walter Palmer has gone to Rehoboth for-a short stay. His father is employed there for the present, but the family will return to Denton late in the winter. ' Agriculture News Thursday, December 8, the agricul ture boys went on a field trip to Mr Clarence Kern's to attend a -demon stration on testing a flock of chickens tor pullorfum, a disease common imong chickens. The chickens were kept penned up in the morning so that they could be easily caught am put on a table that is "U" shaped in appearance. The legs were put under ordinary screen door latches and their necks under a wire. This kept the birds etill while Dr. Davis, from th University of Maryland pierced the vein under the wing with a needle to secure a drop of blood. A little wire loop was used to pick up a film o: blood to mix with the antigen, a pur pie serum. Should the chickens be af fected with the pullorium disease, the blood would quickly coagulate show ing that the bird was a reactor ant ahovld be removed -from the flock However, when thL? did not happen ihe chicken was free from disease The boys thoroughly enjoyed thi; educational trip.

A new gold strike in a mining town that has lain deserted and shriveling under the suns of fifty years precipitates a gold rush by cowboys, prospectors, outlaws, and derert vagabonds. The discovery of a rich vein by Jack Luden, one of the cowboys, and his battle to maintain his rights against the determined assaults of Charles Whittaker and his gang of desperados marks the climax of tho story. Public Picked Stars of New Dickens Drama What stars would you like to sec in "David Copperfield"?

As a result, the public itself picked the players who appear in the film version of the Dickens novel, which comes Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, December 19, 20 and 21, to the Ridgely Theatre.

Safety For Stores at Christmas Time As the holiday rui-h develops, conditions may be permitted that will be exceedingly hazardous, so that R warning in this connection is in order. Many merchants will sell goods so quickly that new supplies must be unpacked continually, and they should accordingly pick up the cartons and waste materials to dispose of them several times a day. There may be a pile under a counter where a carelessly di-carded match would soon cause a serious fire. The back rooms and cellars of stores should also be cleared of paper,- and waste materials every day. No smoking should be per- Grade. I am eight years old. My teacher's neame is Miss Miller.
