In a recent interview of the Boys’
home economics class a High Life re
porter found out two very important
facts. The reason the boys take home
economics, and a dish which is. very
good but non-fattening. A, W. Greeson
was the informer for the first fact.
He said, “The women are getting lazy.
I figure if I ask one to marry me I
won’t get anything to eat and I can’t
stand that. My home economics will
take care of that point.” A. W.’s cake
is what you call very good and there
no doubt tha^ he will never go hungry
on account of “these lazy women.” Some
of the boys are not quite so sun
Ben Fortune remarks, “I don’t know
whether I can cook water or not. I an
afraid I might burn it.”
Roy Wherley, constant hunter for ;
diet to reduce his bulk, told the re
porter of a recent discovery: “The othe
day one of the boys cooked up a dish
le called cheese fondu. I looked at
he recipe, tasted the finished cookery,
nd was very surprised to find it of
, real good taste, for the contents i
ery simple. I brought out my micro
scope and started hunting for those
little fat particles which cause all
trouble. What I found was a greater
■prise than the first one. In this
cheese mixture I found so little fat that
? just enough to keep a person
healthy, I think I will start an eigh
teen day diet consisting of only cheese
