The beginning was: made in the basement of the
Evanston Woman's club. ' At first only lunch was
sold and buyers had to fetch and carry. Next In
order is an evening meal. Then will come delivery
of hot food in containers.
There was a wild rush near lunch time on the
opening day by the housemaidl ess Evanston house
wives for the community kitchen. Mrs. James A.
O'DeJl and Mrs. H. H. Kingsley, chief sponsors for
the kitchen, were kept busy for the best part of
three hours weighing cake and wrapping up slices
of tempting baked ham the kind baked with
cloves and sugar, the Virginia way, you know
and other goodies. The menu ; Included these
things: , . -
Baked Ham. Corned Beef Hash. Spanish Rice.
' Meat Pie.
Potato Salad. Tomato Salad.
Gingerbread. ... Cookies. Cakes.

The proletariat was not in evidence. The pre
miere of the kitchen might have been the opening
of the opera season. .''Limousines, and electrics
lined up in front of the kitchen and the beauty and
chivalry of the aristocratic village were all present.
Among the first to draw up in their electric coupes
were Mrs. William S. Carson and Mrs. D. E. Mc
Millan. They departed with a basket containing
some tomato salad, gingerbread, baked ham and
banana cream pie. -
There next drew up in their limousines, with
their chauffeurs waiting outside, with lips smack
ing, Mrs. Ulysses S. Grant, wife of Dean Grant of
Northwestern university ; Mrs. Rufus C. Dawes
and Mrs. M. II. Dawes, who departed with full
In their wake came "many more, mostly person

ous efforts, the only commodities which provei
amenable to the culinary treatment of the fra
ternity cooks were beans. The" guests were luke-
i warm In their appreciation. Following the" dinner
the dish-washing began. Eight plates were broken.
The fraternity-house looked like a shambles when

, It appears that the community kitchen is offering 1
- really toothsome dainties. The : tomato salad
created a sensation and one enthusiastic purchaser

The "best cook in Evanston'.' Mrs. James Wells
came In and took a lot of it away with her, and
then Mrs. James Patten ordered the rest to serve
to her Red Cross workers.' Bits of comment like
this were to be heard everywhere : - '
"I just couldn't wait; I had to taste this ginger
bread." - i
"Isn't the potato salad delicious?" .
"See you tomorrow, Mrs, Kingsley. I'm going to
hurry home and eat this hash while ifs hot."
"I couldn't wait. 1 had to bite into this cooky,"
one woman remarked, crunching into a cooky. "My,
but It's good!" '
Speaking of the dinner she purchased, Mrs.
Dawes characterized it as "delicious."
Mrs. Eugene Garnett said her meal was "one of
the finest home-cooked dinners I ever ate. In nu
trition, seasoning and all other points it was per
Mrs. Robert D. Cunningham was likewise en
thusiastic. "If tie success of the kitchen depends
on the food, it'll be a huge success," she said..
"There isn't a restaurant In Chicago which can
offer as fine a home-cooked dinner as the com
munity kitchen here."
Two o'clock found the "community kitchen"
pretty: much deserted, and the managers of the
place checking up on the proceeds of the first day.
"We knew we would be successful because the
plan was pretty thoroughly discussed before we be
gan the work," said Mrs. Kingsley, "but we weren't
prepareoVfor all the enthusiasm that greeted us.
"I feel sure that the community kitchen will
prove a great success," Mrs. Rufus Dawes said. "It
will be Impossible for several weeks to determine
the cost of the meals, , cost of operation, and so
forth; The work, that has been done by volunteers
will eventually have to be done by paid workers."
Corned beef hash sold for 60 cents a pound, the
gingerbread was 5 cents a cake and the doughnuts
. 30 cents a dozen ; '
"The greatest problem now Is to know how much
'food to prepare. We are- attending personally to
every detail of the kitchen so that we may find out
what quantities to prepare and just how much to
charge. - - '" v
"The kitchen is really on trial now. If it works
. well, we may turn it over to a business concern to
handle, but we will not make the mistake New
York did of not haying real home cooking. . Mrs.
M. H.-Kennedy, who is one of the best cooks in
v- Evanston, has promised to stay. One of her help
ers is a university graduate, who took a domestic
science course Miss Rachael Madison. Miss Olive
Blystad, an Evanston girl, is the other assistant."
The container .that is to be. used "resembles a
" glorified dinner pail, built in five compartments
and insulated to retain heat for 'three hours. In
the compartments will be placed soup, meat, a vege
table, potatoes and a hot desserti These will be
distributed by auto trucks. . N :-
' Winnetka is much interested in the plan. Mrs.
John R. Dickinson and Mrs. H. J. Orwlg of the
Winnetka Woman's club visited the kitchen the
opening day" to see how it worked.
"We need such an institution as much as Evans?
ton does.'Vsaid Mrs.. Dickinson. "If it works out
- in .Evanston we will stact. one."' ,
i Looking dt the community kitchen experiment In
a broad sense, it is merely one problem of many
which every" community has to solve. How long
will it be before our American communities take
hold of, these preHblems which are, in the last analy
sis, their own and nobody else's? ;

jyNIOR TOPIC The Baptism of Jesus
INTERMEDIATE TOPIC The Pledge
of Christian Disciplesbip.
SENIOR AND ADULT TOPIC-SigntnV
cance and Imporlance of Christian Bap
tism. I. The Apostles' Commission (Mart
1. The authority of Jesus, (v. 18). God
gave him all authority In heaven and
on earth. As mediator and coming
king he possessed all authority.' This
authority extends over all the ma
terial world, angels, wicked men, dev
ils, and his own people. God highly
exalted him -and gave him a name
which" Is above every name (Phil. .
2:9). There is no other way of sal
vation, for the entire matter of . re-,
di inption Is in his huiwis (Acts 4:12).
Since God has so 'highly honored hlra
it is extreme -.folly to expect to be
saved while disregarding him.
2. The obligation of the apostles
(1) It was to teach, that is, make
disciples of allthe' nations (v. 19).
They were to make known to the whole .
world that Christ had died to save sin
ners and that God had committed to
iiwus iiic i eucmpum oi uie wyriu.
Those who are Christ's disciples are
bound to proclaim him to others.
(2) Baptize those who believe' (.
19). This is the divinely appointed
way of making a public confession of
faith In Christ. The disciples must
publicly take a stand for Christ. The
application of water symbolizes the
purifying effect of the blood of Christ
and soleiunly dedicates to the service
of Pod. This baptism must be in the
name of the . Father. Son and Holy
Ghost, showing that the believer has
been brought into definite relationship
to each member of the Holy Trinity.
(3) Teach the disciples obedience
(v. 20). Profession Is not enough. It
must Issue in obedience. Faith must
result in works. To call Jesus "Lord"
and do not the things. which he says
profits nothing. . t -
3. The all-sufficient promise (v. 20)..
The Lord had told the disciples what
would happen to them after he had
gone away. He made It plain that
perils of all kinds awaited them.
Though "the difficulties were great noth
ing mattered so long as they had the
presence and fellowship of the all
powerful Savldr and Lord. , ";
II. The Baptism of the . Eunuch
(Acts 8 :34-40) ; ;
1. Philip preached Jesus Christ to
him (v. 35). At the invitation of, the
eunuch Philip joined himself to the
chariot and found the eunuch reading
from the fifty-third chapter of Isaiah.
Beginning with this Scripture he
preached Christ. He did not preach
Christ as a great teacher, but as a
savior who had suffered and died In
stead of the sinner. He preached him
as one who had offered himself as a
ransom for many. The fact that the
eunuch, a great statesman, needed an
Interpreter of the Scriptures, even such
a plain passage as the flfty-thfrd rhnp
ter of Isaiah, shows the. absolute need
of a preacher.. The printed page Is
.valuable, hut there will always he the
need of a preacher. The gospel needs
to be experienced before one can be
a-witness of its saving power.
'2. The eunuch requesting baptism
When Christ Is truly preached men
naturally desire to confess him in bap
tism. In many quarters baptism haa
been unduly emphasized, but Iri others
it has been disregarded. It Is highly
Important' that an Intelligent under
standing of Its meaning be possessed ;
for that of which Jesus Christ gave an
example and a command is highly im
3. Philip baptizing the eunuch (v.
38). Having secured from the eunuch
the proper confession Philip baptized
him. It is faith In Christ that saves,
but those who have genuine faith de
sire to seal it In baptism. ,
4. . The eunuch rejoicing (v. 39).
Confession of Christ brings, joy. Those
who obey the commandments of the
Lord can go on their way rejoicing.
Jesus aves, -
: As a child .walking over a slippery
and dangerous path cries out "Father,
I am falling I" and has'but a moment
to catch his father's hand, so .every
believer sees hours when only the hand

abysses of destruction. Cuyler.
