Opening Tuesday of the Intelligencer's Annual Free Cooking School. LECTURER WILL STRESS SELECTIONS OF FOODS Mrs. Emily M. Lautz Will Tell How Important a Part Use of Vegetables Plays in the Daily Diet. Just Inquisitive? Mauraders broke in to the gym of the Edwardsville high school Wednes- day night, entering through a window on the giound level, below the foot- ball Held After breaking the outside window, they entered the dressing room, which is about eight feet below the' window. From there the intrud- ers proceeded to break the window in Coach Glenn C. Smith's room, which serves as an office and in which a number of supplies are kept Despite the presence oC a number of basketballs, stop-watches and other things, nothing could be found miss- ing. A youth, thought by authorities to possibibly be the party sought, was held Thursday afternoon by St. Louis police. J. F.'s Withdraw Authority. Mt. Carmel, III., Feb. R. Ris- ley, Mt'. Carmel police magistrate, to- day received a ruling from Attorney General Otto Kerner holding that po- lice magistrates and justices of the peace In Illinois are without authority to prohibit drunken or reckless driv- ers from operating motor vehicles, un- der provisions of the new Lewis law. The ruling was in answer to an In- quiry by Risley to Springfield wheth- er he had such authority. What Is the determining factor in food selection' Perhaps the national- ly known home economics authority, Mrs. Emily M. Lautz, may revise that question to ask should be the determining when the Intelli- gencer's interesting, free Cooking School opens next Tuesday in the Wildey Theater. Shrewd marketing is close to the top of the list in household arts, re- gardless of w hether the homemaker is on a limited budget, thinks the In- telligencer's food expert. The balance of the meal, the condition and quality of the food, often are settled by the time of day the shopping is done, as well as b> the buyer's purse, time allowance and personal preferences. Not content with merely giving new recipes, the trained specialist who pre- sides over the model kitchen at the will review the foundation steps of meal-planning. In other words, Mrs. Lautz will conduct her class of pupils in a review of the A-B-C's of vitamins, nutrition, balanc- ed menus and safe dieting. Should foods be selected for appear- ance, for food value, for economy? How important a pait do vegetables play in the daily diet? Is price an indication of food value in vegetables? Mrs. Lautz makes it a point to ex- plain how proper cooking methods bring out the tender, palatable qual- ities of the cheaper cuts of meat, which actually contain just as much nourishment as their more costly cousins from the same family. Wise counsel on cooking, seasoning and the preparation and simplified serving of appetite-appealing meals naturally will convey fresh inspiration on how to avoid menu monotonx. Mrs. Lautz understands the art of combining entettamment and instruc- tion, so that her sessions are cheered by jollity, and spiced by knowledge. She knows how to take the gloom out of laundry day. how to disguise those as left-overs to lend first-aid to fallen cakes, how to keep pastrv from becoming soggy, how to save time, temper and energy in meal preparation and how to keep attractive, mspite of the daily rush. That sounds like a tall order, for a trained home economist and ex- perienced lecturer, but homemakers are advised to sweep up their worries, tag them with a question mark and bring them to the four-da> Cooking School. Come armed with notebooks and pencils, too. Troublesome ques- tions on homcmaking subjects will be answered at each class. Convenient recipe sheets, giving ac- curate measurements and instructions of demonstrations dishes, will be dis- tributed daily. And some pupils will have the thrill of carrying home those fragrant stage tiiumphs. Plus the fun of watching the very latest in household equipment and ac- cessories in practical use in the model stage kitchen, w ill be an impressive daily parade of worthwhile gifts, of- fered by participating merchants and firms. Watch for a complete list of these valuable gifts with their friends worth remembering. Remem- ber, too, the dates of the big school reunion next Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at the Wildey Theater. More Applicants Wanted. The government Civil Service Com- mission Thursday announced that it desires more applications for the position of automotive median cs1 helper at Camp Wheeler here.
