weeks from today to lay their plana to
capture one of the prizes.
Children should realize from the begin
'nlns that theso prizes are' of decided
value. The four aablnet gas ranges, ono
for each of the four divisions of tho con-
test. are worth approximately $35 each.
They are approved gas ranges, such as
aro being Installed In Philadelphia homes
gevery day by tho United Gas Improve
ment Company. In addition to this valu
able first prize In each division, there will
;be at least two other prizes, either of
which will be well worth winning.
Many of the heads of organizations
jwhlch are working for the betterment of
home conditions In Philadelphia have
joined the Evenino Ledoer In Its effort
to make the coming event a big success.
All' of thoso who have been consulted
have unanimously approved the move
ment, and stated that their organizations,
as well as the public educational system.
ftwtll be greatly benefited.
me evenino LEDQEn's piiza cooking
contest will undoubtedly be of great serv
ice to the domestic science branch of the.
public schools. It will serve to emphasize
the Importance of this special branch, and
will awaken a new Interest In domestlo
science on tho part of school children
and arouse Increased Interest on the Dart
i'of parents In what their children are
actually obtaining from our public school
The domestic science department of the
public school system Is becoming of
neater Importance every year, because
the tendency of mothers has been away
from teaching their daughters domestlo
thoughts rather than toward It, and It
has been necessary for the public educa
tion authorities to Include in thn rnmilsp
schoollns of girls something of a practical
ua-.ure relative to the home.

TYPICAL PUBLIC SCHOOL COOKING CLASS AT
RULES GOVERNING EVENING LEDGER
COOKING SCHOOL CONTEST FOR GIRLS
1. Entrica arc limited to girla who are members of cooking school
classes of tho schools of Philadelphia. Any individual may contest in. all
four divisions, but may make but one enfrj t;t each division.
S. Contest is to be limited to the baking of 1-pound loaves of bread,
baking powder biscuits, sugar cookies and sponge cake, according to tho
recipes used in the public cooking schools, or in the schools from which
contestants are registered.
3. That conditions may be identical in every case as to efficiency
under which work can be produced, the baking is to bo done in a Gas Range
oven only. (Arrangements have been made with the United Gas Improve
ment Company to extend their free service during the continuarice of this
contest, otd any gas range not operating satisfactorily will be adjusted
and regulated free of charge.)
i. Judging is to be done by an accredited body of judges chosen as
may later be determined.
5. All entries for the contest must be presented at Horticidtural Hall,
Broad and Locust streets, on Wednesday, June 0, between 0 a. in. and
5 p. Ml.
6. On the bottom of each loaf of bread and on the side of each sponge
cake entered, there must be pasted an entry blank clipped from the
Evening Ledger, giving the contestant's name, home address, name and
number of school attended, name of gas ranqe used (its number when
obtainable), and the article of food contested for. Cookies and baking
powder biscuits are to be presented in wooden plates, the entry blank,
completely filled in as outlined above, in this case being pasted in the
plate. Great care must be taken in this respect, because the great number
of entries will make it necessary to eliminate any contestant whose blank
docs not accompany the exhibit.
7. The exhibits will be judged on Thursday, June 10, and will be on
display in the Auditorium of Horticultural Hall on Friday and Saturday,
June 11 and 12. The awards will be announced at the close of the cooking
school Ucture on Saturday, June 12, this particular session being given

For the first prize in each class, a modern Cabinet Gas Range valued at
about $35. There will be at least a second and third prize and honorable
mention in each of the four divisions. These prizes wilt bo announced later.
schools. The principal value, of course,
will be added Interest on tho part of the
children. It will also give an Indication
of the benefit children are deriving from
the courses of Instruction. ,
There Is no branch of life so Important
to mankind as the home. Fortunately, tho
trend Is toward better homo conditions
for all classes of people. Much energy
Is being expended these days by public
spirited Individuals, working separately
and through organizations, toward this
eijd. Laws are gradually being passed to
enforce bettor housing conditions. Owners
of tenements and small houses, such as
tho poorer people must occupy, are now
forced to build better, more airy and
more sanitary habitations. They can no

will be made more stringent In the future
2 We come to a fuller reallnUon of the
importance of these laws to the future
of our nation.
The Interest of the public spirited, our
public officials and others, however, Is
Sot limited to housing. It extends to the
Mtual living conditions of those who aro
fortunate enough tq be beyond the need of
help. This question of living conditions
takes into consideration the regulation of
foodstuffs which may be sold, and even
coes so far as to lend suggestions aa to
fhe propW preparation after such food
stuffs reach the home.
Tho effort to Influence the preparation
of food Is probably the newest of all in
fliicTneea now at work n the Interest of
better neaUh. Its primary stage Is to be
found in the public schools, where domes
tk . silence Is Included In the courses of
studT for Blrla of the seventh and eighth
gradfs U might be said that girls are
compelled to study domestlo science, the
Science of properly preparing foods, since
thty are compelled to attend school and
the cooking course is part of the general
plan of study. The result of this system
Is that tho heads of our future Philadel
phia homes learn, at a much earlier age,
tho essentials of cooking than did their
own parents. This must greatly influence
conditions In tho homes of tho future. An
immedlato influence Is evident as the In
structors of the public school cooking
classes have received many Instances of
schoolgirls having suggested to their
mothers a mora approved method of
baking and doing other cooking than had
previously been In use.
Tho Evenino Ledger, In conducting the
coming cooking school and demonstration
and prize contest, will combine the domes
tlo science education of the children with
object lessons for mothers.
As previously announced. 11 days will be
given to tho cooking school at Horticul
tural Hall. All housewives should keep In
mind that Mrs. Carroll will deliver a lec
ture each afternoon and that nearly all
of the sessions will be open to any one
who is Interested. This arrangement
means that thousands of housekeepers In
the city will have an opportunity to hear
Mrs. Carroll at some time during the It
The public should clearly understand
that the cooking school and demonstra
tions for tho public and the cooking con
test for girls of school cooking classes are
separate events of the big domestlo
science movement which the Evenino
Ledoer Is promoting.
The cooking contest Is being conducted
In the Interest of the children who have
shown such keen Interest in their cook
ing courses during the school year.
It Is Beldom that children have an op
portunity to win, -by their own merit,
such valuable prizes as the 35 cabinet
gas ranges which are to be given In each
of the four divisions of the contest,
namely, one for bread baking, one for
sponge cako baking, one for cooky bak
ing and one for biscuit baking.
The other feature, and tho one which
will probably do the most Immediate good,
!!! be l5 . coking school which
will be conducted at Horticultural Hall
each afternoon, Mrs. Carroll a now ar
ranging a program for each day. This
will be announced at the earliest possible
date, before the end of thla week. The
plan will be to leave nearly all of the
meetings open to any one who desires to
attend, giving up only two or three after
noons to special classes, such as for self
supporting working girls, for clubwomen
and for women who work outside of their
homes to support their families. The only
other occasion when the admission will
be limited will ba the closing afternoon.
June 13, when the children of. (he cooking
school classes will hear a special lecture

George W. Tcrwllllger, tho Lubln di
rector, recently "borrowed" the battleship
Alabama, which Is nt League Island Xavy

of Bcenca on board. As a return compli
ment, Mr. Lubln gavo tho ofllccrs and
crew a movlng-plcturo show and smoker
this week, and the occasion was a gala
one at the Navy Yard.
The big battleship was decorated with
tings and special lights, a screen was
holBted on tho forward deck and the pro
jecting mnchlno was placed on tho turret.
Just over tho two big 13-lnch guns. In tho
front row sat Benr Admiral F. M. Helm,
Commander Lyon, officers from the other
ships and a number of tho Lubln officials,
while back of them wero hundred of
Eallors and their friends.
During the last two years tho Lubln
Company has secured a number of re
markable pictures of tho United States
Navy In action, and many of theso wcro
shown. Tho rest of tho program con
sisted of plays that had a naval flavoring
and a number of comedies. A special
feature of the evening was two reels of
climaxes from Lubln dramas. In wh ten
sensation followed sensation with be
wildering rapidity and gavo tho B.illors
ono of tho biggest thrills they ever got
from a movlng-plcturo screen. Tho ship s
band furnished music for the occasion.
Following the show thero were refresh
