Mrs. Kathleen Bowker: 'Canadian Favourites' - II
Maple sugar is the great contribution of Canada to the sweet-lovers of the world, and in her first talk, Mrs. Bowker described various delicacies in which this is employed. Her kind of rice pudding should revolutionize children's lives: excellent, too, are her maple-sugar sandwiches and sweet omelettes. She also gave recipes for buckwheat cakes, strawberry shortcake, and 'gooey buns.' This week she gets on to sterner stuff. She begins by describing some quick methods in cooking-the egg-beater, the mincing-machine, etc. Then she considers vegetables, which are very different and differently cooked in Canada: corn... six ways with tomatoes... baby beets... cold slaw... potato cakes... are sub-titles for this section. She ends by a discourse on salads, and shows how they can be good even in winter.

The Hon. HAROLD NICOLSON , C.M.G.: ' Reading as a Means of Self-Education '
MR. HAROLD NICOLSON , having described in some detail the essentials of the modern spirit in literature, returns to reading in general and its uses. It is important not to confuse reading and study : ' study ' gives learning, while reading aims at culture. Culture is an attitude of mind: it is the constant exploitation of curiosity. General and ill-directed reading may produce a certain kind of culture, but it does not create education ; that requires disciplined planning. Mr. Nicolson gives some suggestions on how to educate oneself. ' A little knowledge is a dangerous thing'; it is far better to know everything about something than something about everything. Elasticity of mind and judgment is preferable to a mass of ill-digested knowledge. And in any case it is easier to acquire a point of view than a classical education.
