As usual students still receive boxes from home and there is usually something perishable among vhe contents,) Of coarse the cooks do not have room in tho refrigerator to store all these perishable artioles so the students endeavor to contrive sme tray to keep the food fro spoiling® During the recent extremely cold weather the vrandcrv sills nade excellent refrigerators for butter, fruita vegetable* milk4 cheeso* jellos and even icecream*
Sometimes, however, the food does not stay in the refrigerator but falls to the lam below « ^ho owners quickly resoue it. One young lady rescued one-half pound of butter tho other week just in time* The birxa had already pecked a hole througlu the paper covering-.
Soon the weather will become warmer end the students will hatro iiD think of another method to keep food from spoiling*
