PAGE EIGHT THE REVIEW FRENCH So Madam Scott and her sister are Catholics. A large amount of money is given the priest for his poor, more than he ever had in all his life. How happy he is! Then the txvo million- aires stay for supper, much to the embarrassment of the priest, for he has nothing but mutton, chicorie, and eggs to eat. This doesn't bother them in the least. They are enjoying era. themselves so much at the table that Just a glinpse of an Egyptian the priest forgets about his 7:30 ser- vices, Pauline reminds him of it, and all leave for the church, passing thru the cemetery on the way and praying for the dead. MODERN EUROPEAN HISTORY The modern European History Class has practically completed the six weeks work. We have been forced to slow ttp during the last week; and we ve been spending our time by rook- oral reports on some of the in- teresting topics, that we have stud- ted during the term. We have also been doing some map work. We com- pleted the map of Russia on Friday, February 26. Some of the topics which we have been reporting on in class are: "The Crimean War," "The Russo-Japanese War", "The Boer War", "Nihiilism", "William Ewart Gladstone", a gTeat British statesman. These to- pics are very interesting, when they are studied as stories, and no defin- ito outline is followed. Sometimes it is well no to stick too closely to the  facts. The important thirg is to get t]o trend of the story, then the facts will stick more easily. MATHEMATIC8 Did you ever wonder why geometry was named geometry, and not some- thing else ? What is the derivation of the word ? It comes from "geo" mng earth, and 'netron" mean- ing measure. In other words the lit- eral definition of geometry is "mea- sure of the earth." Geometry was in existence long before the time of Christ.

The effects of the approach of spving are already being noticed in this department. It is such nice weather outside that the youn draft men are scarcely able to keep their minds on drafting. But as I am sup- posed to be a reporter and not a weather man. I -ill tell the work ac- complished by the class the past few days. Since the beginning of the second week of the semester, machine fLs- i tenings, including screw threads, bolts, nuts, screws, and pipe con- nections, have been drawn. The first plate was an ink drawing, while the last two were pencil. In the process of making a pencil drawdmg, one must be very neat and careful for the plates are often deprived of val- ue because of their appearance. As the boys have now learned how to wcrk fast and carefully, good plates will be completed in the future. Next week the drawings will b on the transmission of power.

The mob turned to him and started a battle against Cassius and Brutus. Brutus was haunted all the time by Caesar's ghost. When the battle, finally, reach its height, Cassius and Brtus both killed themselves. So ends the drama by Shapespeare, "Julius Caesar." The Freshmen have found it to be very interesting. Projects on "Julius Caesar" must be handed in before the end of this !six weeks. Miss Moore is tr-ing out a new method in English I. She is giving them speed and form tests in dicta- tion. The vurpose of these tests is to increase the pupil's efficiency in the use of correct punctuation and in sentence sense. ENGLISH II The Merchant of Venice After Bassanio chose the nning easket, he received a letter from Antonio saying that Shylock was go- ing to foreclose the bond. Bassanio left at once and went to Venice. Portia came to Venice dres- sed as a lawyer. She pleaded An- tonio's ca,se: Portia offered to 1ay back the money that Antonio owed Shylock, but the Jew refuse& She told Anto- nio that he should prepare to have his flesh eut. Then ske told Shyloek that if he caud Antonio to lose one drp of blood, his goods would all be dceinred eenfeate Shylock ed that this xas imTossible sc he asked to leave. Portia told him to stay because ac- cording to the laws of Venice if a man sought another man's life, he must give up all his good. Conse- quently, his life lay in the hands of the Duke. Antonio said that he pre- fered that half of Shylock's good went to himself, half to Lorenzo and Jessica and that Shylock should be- : come a Christian. Shylock agreed and then left. Baasanio gave the lawyer (Portia) a ring which his wife (Portia) had given him as payment. When he went home Portia asked him where his ring was, after Ners- sa discovered her husband's ring was gone. Bassanio swore that he had gi- ven it to the lawyer, but Portia made fun of him. Finally, it was all cleared up and they were all happy. It, finally, came out that Antonio's ships had not miscarried but were safe in the harbor at Venice. HOME ECONOMICS Thursday and Friday the cooking girls served two breakfast One half of the class served one day and the oher half the next. The girls who were to be served did not know what their breakfast would be. Both sides found it to be quite a treat. I want to tell you a few things a- bout cream puffs and give you a good recipe. When you are making cream pffs be sure and add all of the flour at once. Have your oven as hot as the recipe calls for and bake the puffs the exact length of time the recipe calls for.
