"Man" is the subject of the Lesson-

Sermon in all Churches of Christ,

Scientist, on Sunday, September 5.

The Golden Text is: "God created

man in his own image, in the image

^f God created he him; male and female

created he them." (Gen. 1:27).

Among the citations which comprise

the Lesson-Sermon is the following

from the B hie: "Be ye therefore perfect,

even as your Father which is in

heaven Is perfect." (Matthew 5:48).

The Lesson-Sermon also includes

the following correlative selection from

the textbook of Christian Science.

"Science and Health with Key to the

Scriptures," by Mary Baker Eddy:

"The Chr.stllke understanding of scientific

being and divine healing includes

a perfect Principle and idea.—

perfect God and perfect man,—as the

basis of thought and demonstration.

If man was once perfect but has now

lost his perfection, then mortals have

never beheld in man the reflex mage

of God. The lost image is no image.

The true likeness cannot be lost in

divine, reflection. Understanding this,

Jesus said: 'Be ye therefore perfect,

even as your Father which is n heaven

is perfect.' " (page 259).

In pressing materials a general rule

to follow is: the heavier the material

the more steam and 'he hotter the

iron needed.

The locals scored the lone tally of

the game In the first. Brady opened

with a single, Blanco bunted and

reached first safely, Brady pulling up

at second. Fox forced Blanco at second

and Brady moved to third. On

the first pitch to Tuttle Fox started

for second. When the catcher pegged

to second, Brady beat Roosa's return

Angel Food Isn't Easy To

Make, But It Is Worth


sBy SIDNEY SNOW5 szsz=ss2HHffi; ^ s2ss 2S2Si5

SOME people have a natural, lucky "knack" and torn out grand

angel food. Others find it a most aggravating 1 undertaking and

• have disappointing results. There is no use minimizing the

difficulty of producing great angel cake. However, it is such a delightful

cake and always so popular when it turns out well that it is worth

keeping at it. And often practice is the one real answer to good,

angel cake.

Of course, a good recipe is of prime importance and the following

may well be pasted in the recipe book, because it has been proven over

and over again to be of outstanding merit.


The Ingredients:—

1 eup sifted cake flour—get 1

the best on the market l l teaspoon cream of tartar ,

A cups sifted granulated

and better yet, sift twice


teaspoon pure vanilla

1 cup egg whites *A teaspoon extract of almond

VA teaspoon salt */4

Don't "cut corners" with the ingredients and stick to this Method:

.... Sift the flour twice. Then measure it exactly. Then sift it four

more times. Now beat the egg whites and the salt with a wire whisk.

When this is foamy, add the cream of tartar and keep on beating until

the egg is stiff enough to hold its peaks—but do not beat it dry. Now

fold in the sugar very carefully, two tablespoons at a time, until all is

used. Then fold in the flavoring which has been mixed. Now take the

flour and Sift it a little at a time over this mixture and fold it in after

each sifting.* Keep on sifting and folding until all is used up. Now

take an Ungreased angel food pan and pour the batter into it Bake

it in an oven which has been heated to 276 degrees—baking for thirty

minutes longer counting from the moment the thermometer shows 325

degrees. Remove from oven. Invert the pan for one hour—until cold.

dent, did not result In physical violence.

Although the New Rochelle committee

has not ye: been completed, because

of vacations which have taken

many prominent residents out of town,

a large group of men and women leaders

in the city today vigorously expressed

their intention of doing all in

their power, through the committee

on which they will serve, to rid their

community and their neighbors' communities

of the dangers made so obvious

by the constantly increasing sex

offenses against children in Westchester.

Every person on the committee has

expressed practically the same reaction

to this movement. It is, of course,

the reaction of any decent c.tizen,

whether or not he or she is a parent—

and most of these men and women

have children of their own, to give

them additional motive for bringing

about a state of law and order wherein

.morally diseased men may not be allowed

to roam at large, preying on

youngsters, impairing their morals injuring

their bodies and sometimes, as

New York City has proven all too often

recently, taking their lives.

"The rise in this type of crime is

appalling," Mrs. Edward T. Whitney

of New Rochelle said today, "one crime

of the sort is enough to shock a nation,

but continued crimes, such as

society has been experiencing lately

can result in nothing more than a

mass movement of the people to see

that such things are stopped."

The county S. P. C. C. already has










a committee, headed toy the president.

Walter Westall, former state senaToY,

to confer with the Commission on Administration

of Justice, in prepar.ng

a new draft of a code of criminal procedure.

The S. P. C. C. committee will begin

operations in September.

The present wave of sex crimes

against, children was described by

Philip S. Tilden, New Rochelle's director

of public saftey. as a cycle in

crime familiar to all criminologists.

"We have waves of klndnapp ng,"

Mr. Tilden pointed out as he Joined

the committee. "We have waves of

larceny, of arson, of various other

types of crime. Nothing, however, can

be worse than these crimes against

children. It is essential that we study

every phase cf this s tua.ion. I am

going to suggest to our committee,

when it meets that iti carefully weigh

the possibility that styles of dress

may have somfething to do with these

sex crimes. I am not saying the styles

do; I am merely saying we must not

overlook any possible feature of the

situation. Are these perverts stimulated

to their actions by the sight of

children, in sun-suits? Do we send our

children out in too scanty clothing?

I wonder. Whatever the cause, however,

now is the time for us ,o act. as

a community."

"Every one of us deeply regrets the

necessity for such a committee as

this," said the Rev. Jaims Halligan.

pastor of the Holy Name Roman Catholic

Church, "but nothing could be

plainer than that we must take the

steps so clearly indicated by these

increasing crimes. I am strongly in

Other prominent New Rochelle

Catholics who have likewise Joined the

committee Include Mrs. David Weir,

president of the Catholic Women's

Club of Westchester, and John A. Bodmer,

former Grand Knight of the New

Rochelle Counc.l, Knights of Columbus,

Mr. Bodmer, a lawyer and the

father of three small girls, is convinced

of the inadequacy of the protection

afforded society by existing laws, and

of the necessity for definite and

speedy reform.

Immediate Acceptance to commlttee

membership was given by the Rev.

Preder.ck Wamsley, rector of St.

Paul's Episcopal Church.

Morton Puerst. executive director of

the New Rochelle Boys' Club and

Charles J. Muensen, its president, are

both committee rrtembers—each being

a man noted in this community for his

work for the protection of young people

and the building of a finer citizenry.

Others who have pledged their support

in New Rochelle are Dr. E. Leslie

Burwell, president of Rotary; Philip

Coming to Brewster

lovers in this vicinity, particularly students

training. In 1929. he was accepted as a

of violin at the Institute of Musical

Art of the Juilliard School of Music.

Three years later, in competition with

150 candidates. Mr. Comanda won the

prized New York College of Music

Of Great Importance Because

of Vitamin Supply.


\X/"HILE fruits, of course, belong

v * to the vegetable kingdom, we

classify them separately from

those foods which we call vegetables.

In fruits most of the carbohydrate

is in the form of sugar in

contrast to the starch of vegetables.

Like vegetables they are

high in vitamins, in general, supplying

us with larger amounts of vitamin

C. Leafy vegetables, tomatoes

and squash, however, can compete

with even citrus fruits on this count.

Most fruits supply, as well, a certain

amount of one or more minerals.

Like vegetables, they furnish

roughage in the form of cellulose

which aids the rhythm of digestion.

While the majority of fruits are

eaten in their raw form, cooking destroys

very little of the vitamin content.

Canned fruits can be counted

upon to supply us with practically

the same amount of vitamins which

are furnished by the raw product.

The natural acids of fruits are

usually an advantage to digestion,

excepting in special cases where

there is already an excess of acid

in the stomach. Even Jn such conditions

ripe bananas, sweet cherries,

cooked pears, apples and

prunes can usually be taken. Let

me call attention to the fact that

the condition 6f acidosis is completely

different from that of hyperacidity.

No matter how acid the

fruit is during digestion, after absorption,

alkaline products which

prevent acidosis, result.

In no respect have the dietary

customs of this country changed

more than toward the fruit content

of our daily ration. This change is,

of course, wholly advantageous.

Glazed Banana and Pineapple.

3 bananas

3 slices canned pineapple

Granulated sugar

Cut bananas and pineapple slices

in halves. Arrange in a shallow

baking dish and sprinkle with water.

Bake in a moderate oven (375 degrees

Fahrenheit) about ten minutes

until the sugar is melted.

Baked Rhubarb Pudding.

6 thin slices of bread.


1 bunch rhubarb, cut into half

inch pieces

1 cup sugar

Butter the slices of bread on the

loaf before cutting and line a buttered

dish with the buttered side

of the bread toward the dish. Fill

with rhubarb and sugar, cover with

bread and bake in a moderate oven

(375' degrees Fahrenheit) half an

hour. If rhubarb is very acid more

sugar may be added.

Wine Jelly.

2 tablespoons granulated gelatin.

% cup cold water

1% cups boiling water

% cup sugar

Vi cup orange juice

3 tablespoons lemon juice

1V4 cups sherry

Soak gelatin in cold water five

minutes. Dissolve in boiling water.

Add remaining ingredients and pour

into a mold. Chill until set. Unmold

and serve with whipped cream.

Artichoke Salad.

1 can artichoke buds

2 tablespoons minced onion

French dressing


Remove artichokes from can and

drain. Sprinkle with minced onion

and a well-seasoned French dressing.

Garnish with strips of pimento

before serving.

Prune and Raisin Pudding

3Vz cups milk

% cup brown sugar


ZVi tablespoons cornstarch

V4 cup raisins

V» cup cut prunes

Scald three cups of milk. Mix

cornstarch and salt with rest of milk

and add with sugar to hot milk.

Stir until thick and smooth, add fruit

and cook over hot water thirty minutes.

Pour into large or individual

molds and chill. Serve with plain

or whipped cream.

Citrus Marmalade.

1 grapefruit

1 orange

1 lemon



Wipe fruit and slice very thin.

Remove seeds of fruit and core of

grapefruit. Measure and add three

times the quantity of water. Let

stand in dish overnight. Boil until

the fruit is soft. Measure, add

an equal amount of sugar and boil,

stirring occasionally until the sirup

jellies, about one hour. Pour into

hot glasses and seal.

Marmalade Variations.

1. Use six oranges and two lemons.

2. Use three grapefruits and two


3. Add one and one-half cupb

crushed pineapple after fruit and

sirup have been cooked fifteen minutes.

1 To cooked lruit, add two cui-v

cooked cranberries and an equal

amount of sugar.

Hidden Genius


C Associated Newspapers.

WNU Service.

*"pHE Alpha, Alnha, Alpha, Alpha

*• fraternity at Boynton university

is responsible for the fate of Percival

Oakes. It happened this way.

During his freshman year the

AAAA's pledged Percy to membership,

and initiated him into the mystic

three R's. (Rites, rituals and

regulations.) Percy took it like a

man. When ordered to imitate a

dog howling at the moon, he did

his level best. The result was astonishingly


The brother AAAA's cheered

loudly and clamored for encores.

Percy obliged a second time and a

third. He was immensely pleased

with the applause and the attention

he attracted.

The next day, en route to class,

Percy was stopped by a gravefaced

sophomore and asked to give

his imitation of a dog howling at

the moon. For a moment he hesitated,

conscious of a circle of grinning

faces that had silently formed

about him, faintly resentful of the

fact that the brothers of the AAAA

had made public the discovery of

his hidden genius. He planced once

more into the grove face of the

youth who had accosted him and

then threw back his head and bayed


A mighty roar of applause greeted

the rendition. There were cries of

"More!" "More!" Percival obliged

a second time and then once more.

He was ready and willing for a

fourth delivery when the bell on "T"

hall tolled forth its mellow note

and the gathering dispersed.

Percy hurried on to class alone.

He was not disoleased with his

morning's work. He had been at college

four months, and this was the

first time he had attracted any attention.

Returning to college in the fall,

Percy had completely put from his

mind the cause and fact of his last

year's popularity. There were other

and more important things to occupy

his interest. He was now a

sophomore, with all the rights and

liberties and sensations of importance

that are synonymous with that

lofty position.

Chief among these, the ope which

had proved the sharpest thorn in

his bed of roses, was that which

had prohibited or limited his association

with coeds. Now, tincumbered

by this fetter, Percy's

first act as a sophomore was to join

a group of classmates in eating

lunch at the Commons for the express

purpose of looking over the

incoming stock of freshman lassies.

One among them caused Percy's

brain to swim. Here was loveliness

and intelligence and femininity all

combined. Unhappily, it took him

a fortnight to negotiate an introduction.

Her name was Delia Winter,

and she was as r poDular as she was

for nothing; she had her pick of th*


It was at ona of the Bnturdnv

when Delia looked up at h'm and

said: "Aren't you the bo^* v.'ho ran

Percy reddened to the er~s. '•'••

felt a chill, a horrible ***• "sion.

"No," he bler'cJ.

Whoever told you that is rra-.y!"

Delia didn't press the subject, bu*

Percy knew he was sunk. He lei

a month slip by before he COP Id

conjure enough courage to ask for

a date, felt pitifully grateful when

she assented.

No mention was mrde that nif'it

of his genius, but Percy sensed it

was on her mind; gloomily knew

that the miserable experience oi

last year was the seal of his doom,

the closed door to this future happiness.

Within the following month he

kept five dates with Delia, but it was

always the same: the "thing" was

always there between them. She

thought, must think him ridiculous

She pitied him.

During the intermission at the

Dartmouth victory dance, Percy

and Delia strolled out onto the now

dry ice-skating rink and sat down

on the bulwark and looked up 8t

the moon. Because of his great and

hopeless love Percy was moody, ui>

happy, thoughtful. Suddenly he was

startled by the petulant tone of his

she said.

"What must?" arked PercivaJ.

"To be able to imitate things. I

mean, anyone can play football, or

learn to skate, or dance well, but it

takes genius to be able to imitate


"Do—you mean that?"

"Why, of course I do! I've always

admired people who—have

creative ability. Genius. Of course

I mean it!"

She looked squarely at him, and

the last trace of doubt vanished

from Percy's soul like mist fron. a

river bed before a rising sun. He

stood up, he threw back his head,

he looked at the moon and from

his throat there came the clear,

deep, rich tones of a baying hound.

There was in them a note of joy, of

triumph, of fullness. They rose and

fell and reached a new quality of

perfection. Watching, the eyes of

Delia Winter glowed and shone and

sparkled in delighted admiration.

small white cards marked off into

spaces for each finger's print.

"A young girl approaches, holding

out red-nailed white hands. The

recorder presses her right thumb

firmly on the stamp pad and then

down on the card, rolling it from

right to left. 'Just relax, don't

try to help me,' he instructs her,

for if she presses with her thumb,

the chemically-treated card, but

are filed to keep men with prison

public trust.

drowned, during a vacation trip. Cap­

tain David J. Yates, Director of First

Aid and Life Saving, Weschester

County Chapter. American Red Cross,

was asked to give a demonstration for

the benefit of homo owners, guests and

friends of the South Salem section,

Sunday. August 29, at 4 p. m.

In a beautiful setting at the home

of Mr. Bryce Taylor, Lake Waccabuc.

the demonstration was given before

approximately 300 persons. Thirty or

more boats and canoes surrounded the

demonstration area.

The demonstration consisted of Paul

A. Noe. President of the Westchester

County Life Saving Examiners' Asso­

ciation. Charles Sammann and Don­

ald Kellogg, of Katonah; Beatrice Ta-

tor. South Salem; and Junior Life

Savers, Dot Peatt. Gladys Isles and

Peggy Ostrander or Lake Namanasco.

In Captain Yates talk before nnd

during he demonstration, he explained

that during the past twelve months

there have been 81.291 certificates is­

sued to persons qualfying as Red

Cross Life Savers in the United

States. This brings the grand total of

Life Savers to 798,499 since the inau­

guration of the Life Saving Service in

1914. In Westchester County since

1930, Captain Yates explained there

have been 9.959 persons qualified, and

over 8,000 training hours given.

Captain Yates said that since Janu­

ary 1, there have been 14 drownings

in Westchester. Nine of these persons

drowned were from the New York City

area. Eight of these drownings occur­

red in unsupervised areas. In speaking

of New York City's drowning rate, he

explained that New York City has the

unenviable reputation of having the

largest drowning loss of any civilized

community in the world, the average

being over 400 fatalities a year.

The Life Saving demonstration con­

sisted of the various correct approaches

to drowning persons, the breaking of

so-called death grips or strangle holds,

as taught by the Red Cross, body re­

covery drill, the use of life saving

equipment in effecting rescues, parti­

cularly the use of a life saving ring


Capain Yates stressed the need for

all persons on the lake learning at

least the fundamentals of water safe­

ty, stressing particularly, that in case

of accidents—the over urning of ca­

noes and boats, persons should under

no circumstances leave the boat. This

applies especially to canoes capsizing.

A canoe filled with water can be pro­

pelled by hand even if the paddles are


One of the most interesting parts

of the demonstration consisted of the

various life saving carries and the lat­

est approved method of applying arti­

ficial respiration, known as the Prone

Pressure Method.

Man With Branded Hand

TN EVERGREEN cemetery in

* Muskegon, Mich., stands a monu­

ment which bears the inscription

"Capt. Walker's Branded Hand"

and below it a bas-relief of an open

hand with the letters "S. S." on

the heel of the thumb. This monu­

ment recalls one of the stirring in­

cidents of pre-Civil war days and

marks the grave of a man who

played a part in bringing on that


Capt. Jonathan Walker was

a Massachusetts sea captain and in

1844 was engaged in coastwise

trade. Hating negro slavery, Walk­

er tried to help seven blacks, who

had fled from a Florida plantation,

escape to the Bahamas. He was

arrested, brought to Pensacola,

tried as a thief in federal court

and found guilty. He was sentenced

to be branded on the right hand

with the letters "S. S." (slave steal­

er), to stand in the pillory one hour,

be imprisoned fifteen days and pay

a fine of $150.

After the first part of the sentence

had been carried out, he was led

again into the courthouse. Or­

dered to put his hand on the post of

the railing in front of the judge's

bench, Walker protested when the

marshal bound it fast to the post.

He declared that he could hold it

firm during the ordeal, but his pro­

test was ignored and the branding

took place.

After his release from prison,

Walker went back to his home in

Massachusetts to find himself a hero

and a martyr. John Greenleaf Whit-

tier wrote a poem in which he be­

sought Walker to hold his branded

right hand aloft for all the world

to see. Abolitionist leaders recog­

nized in the incident a potent ar­

gument for their cause. Accompa­

nied by a fugitive slave he traveled

through the North and lectured on

the evils of slavery.

"The Man with the Branded

Hand" became a famous figure and

he did much to arouse the North

and put it in a receptive frame of

mind for Harriet Beecher Stowe's

"Uncle Tom's Cabin" as a faithful

picture of the horrors of slavery.

In the '50's Walker and his family

moved to Wisconsin and a few years

later bought a small fruit farm in

Michigan. There he lived during the

remainder of his days and there

he died in 1878, an almost forgotten

figure who had played no little part

in bringing on the greatest civil war

in history.

Bedford Court House

Now 150 Years Old



-By Dmo Scott Watson-

r -ap'n Streeter, Squatter King

F IFTY years ago it was only a

sandbar on the shore of Lake

Michigan opposite Chicago's famous

"Gold Coast." Today towering sky­

scrapers, huge office buildings, a

famous hotel and a great university

stand on land valued at half a bil­

lion dollars. But Chicagoans still call

it "Streeterville," thereby honor­

ing the memory of Cap'n George

Wellington Streeter, who battled val­

iantly against "them dern capital­

ists" and held out for 30 years be­

fore they finally dethroned this fa­

mous "squatter king" from his

"Deestrict of Lake Michigan."

Streeter was a Civil war vet­

eran who became a boatman on the

Great Lakes. In 1884 he built a 100-

ton ship in which he started for

Honduras to take part in a revolu­

tion then in progress. But his ship

went aground on a sandbar and

the skipper found himself marooned

several hundred yards out in Lake

Michigan from the Chicago shore­

line. So he decided he might as well

stay right there. Out of the timbers

of his ship he and his wife, Maria,

built a little shack on their sandy

island and settled down.

But the rich owners of property

in that part of Chicago were extend­

ing their riparian rights out into the

lake. As the little peninsulas of

filled-in land reached out toward the

captain's island, which had been en­

larged by drifting sand, they decided

that his shack was an eyesore and

should be removed. They called on

the law to evict these squatters ar.d

five husky constables started out to

do it. Cap'n Streeter put on his fight­

ing costume—a high silk hat and

a frock coat—he and Maria took

their muskets in hand and the con­

stables retreated hastily.

Streeter found an old map of the

city on which the boundary of Lake

Michigan was plainly marked. He

contended that the "made land"

was outside that boundary, there­

fore it was under federal jurisdic­

tion and he claimed it by right of

discovery. But the courts refused

to recognize his claim to this "Dees­

trict of Lake Michigan." He and

Maria were evicted time and again

but they always came back. So the

struggle went on year after year, in

court and out of court.

"Cap'n" Streeter died in 1921. But

his second wife, "Ma" Streeter, true

to her promise to him, carried it on

for several years more. Finally she

had to give up the fight and Chica­

go's "Thirty Years' war" with the

"squatter king" came to end when

she died last year.

C Weatern Ns*apapor Valon,

Nearly 200 members of the Bedford

Fanners Club ga "hered at Old Bed­

ford Courthouse, Bedford Village, on

August 25, to celebrate the 150th an-

nivarsary of the building. There seat­

ed on the long benches that had felt

the weight of many a Colonial bar­

rister in the early days of the nation

they listened to recitals of the history

of Bedford from members of the club.

At the opening of the meeting the

old courthouse bell was rung for the

firs: time in years. The bell, it was only

recently discovered is just 100 years

old. A date believed to be the date

of casting is 1837, 50 years after the

courthouse was built.

During the meeting it was voted by

club memfbers to contribute $25 to a

fund to be used for the erection of a

suitable sign or marker for the his­

toric old building. Mrs. Alfred Roel-

ker immediately arose to donate an­

other $25 to the funds on behalf of the

Bedford Garden Club.

Miss Delia Marble, a resident of

Bedford Village and a member of the

club was the first speaker and she

dwelled on the "human qualities of the


The other speakers were L. Hollmgs-

worth Wood, president, who harked

back to the days when Westchester

county attorneys and Justices came

from miles around to try their cases.

Will Adams gave a detailed history

of the old building through several

phases of American history.

A poemi written by Robertson Bar­

rett of Katonah paying tribute to the

courthouse was read and the model

of the Bedford Presbyterian church

built by Palmer Lewis was exhibited.

Cards bearing the seal of the town

of Bedford and a description of its

graphic designs as related to Bed-

fords History were handed out as of­

ficial mementos of the 150th anniver­

sary of the Courthouse.

Slot Machines.

Ever put a nickle ;n the slot for a

package of gum, a bar of chocolate

candy, your weight, or a chance to

"hit the machine?"

As you did, you probably thought the

slot machine was a clever idea. These

are great days—selling candy, food

products and what not, by machine.

That's where the joke is on us. This

idea of selling by machine isn't some­

thing new, not by a jugful. And it isn't

fifty years or a hundred years old. It's

over 2,000 years old. Tie that one. We

think of the people of the time 0/

Christ as walking along dusty roads

and buying their wares in the market

place. A simple sort of life. Machines

weren't of that day. This is the ma­

chine age.

Well, according to the records, we're

just thinking—and we're wrong. For,

the first coin-in-the-slot machine goes

back to about 200 B. o.—over 2,000

years ago. But you hatven't heard any­

thing yet. That machine was used for

the dispensing of purifying water to

Egyptian worshipers as they entered

the temples.

The records state: "The water was

contained in closed vessels provided

like a money box with a slit in the top

through which the sum of five drach­

mae must be dropped before the don­

or could receive any of the purifying

contents. The weight of the five coins

moved a lever downward, which open­

ed a valve. As the lever lowered, the

coins fell off, and the lever rose again,

closing the valve." So that's that.

Speaking of slot machines, here is

another one that old. in the Eigh­

teenth Century a British genius inven­

ted a machine that looked like a jury

wheel, mixed up with a clock, for the

dispensing of a chew of tobacco, for

a penny.

Somebody said there is nothing new

under the sun. It certainly looks as if

that somebody was r.ght.—The Dum­



Bridge used to be where you stood

at midnight. Now midnight is when

you find out where you stand at bridge.
