    PEACE ACTIVITIES the workho^e , Kecountmg the work of s>x county school nurses the repordt says: “The six county school nurses have visited 82 schools, given the preliminary ex­ amination to 4,931 school children, and made 763 home visits, resulting in a great number of children being taken for treatment by their parents to the family physician and dentist and also to hospital clinics.”

    The report shows the vast amount of work done for public health, thru lectures, in conferences and of the unusually interesting display made at the State Fair.

    the boiling point and to add the meal slowly, stirring constantly. The objection to this method is that there is considerable danger that the mush will become lumpy and oftentimes it is inconvenient to stand over a hot stove and stir the mixture sufficiently to make it smooth. A better method and one recommended by the United States Department of Agriculture is the following:

    Put the corn meal, cold water, and salt together in the top of a double boiler. No stirring is nec­ essary. Put the top of the double boiler into the lower part and al­ low the mush to heat slowly, cooking half an hour, or longer, if convenient. Many people cook it as long as four hours. Just be­ fore serving remove the top of the double boiler from the lower part and boil mush for two or three minutes. In boiling it at this time there is no danger that it will lump.


    Recipes for the use of corn meal that will be useful every­ where are not easy to make, for the meal used in various parts of the country differs considerably. In general the granular, which is used more commonly in the North, requires more water and longer cooking than the water-ground, which is used more generally in the South. This extra cooking is needed to soften the meal and re­ move the granular quality from which it gets its name, and must often be given to the meal before it is used in making bread, or such dishes as waffies or dough­ nuts.

Frank­ lin once wrote a whimsical “peti­ tion of the left hand to those who superintend the education of man.” The same view is held by many physiologists today.

    Nevertheless there is something to be said on the other side. It may be asserted that the work of the left hand that of the right, free hand and one to carry luggage or equipment, and hence the right is used for emergency while the

    Home Service Bureau What the bureau of home service

    and civilian relief, of which Miss Miss Madeline Draper is the director has done, was reported by Miss Sibyl M. Gordon, secretary of the bureau. The report in brief follows:

    “Since the opening of the home ser­ vice bureau in 1917, 3,110 service men and their families have come to us for aid.

    “There were 1,354 cases under our care the past year. Care of 450 dis­ abled soldiers. Of this number, all but 94 have had their claims for compen­ sation adjusted. Over 300 were exam­ ined and their claims, including affi­ davits mcessary, filed through the home service office.

    “With the exception of the county work we are planning to wind up the activities of this bureau on January 1. We believe that after that date the service rendered to the families could be handled by the Associated Chari­ ties, the information concerning al­ lotments, insurance, etc., can be prop­ erly cared for by the American Leg­ ion. As to the disabled soldiers, our

    ; biggest problem, we hope by January 1 to clear up all claims that have been entered to date and to urge men who have not yet filed claims to do so at once, as after January 1, we will only have one stenographer on duty to re­ fer cases to the proper agencies, and handle any left-over claims of the dis­ abled men.

    tirely distinct from those of the right so that the individual can perform two radically different tasks at the same time. Taylor, the American efficiency engineer, advocated the cooperative use of the two hands in a single task along strict efficiency lines, in that both hands could be busy at the same moment, and this ap­ pears to be the gist of ambidex­ terity in practice.—Medical Rec­ ord.
