Military Cooks

Men to be trained in Dundee
Arrangements have now been completed for the training of a new party of soldiers as military cooks at Dundee. At Tuesday’s meeting of Dundee School Board a minute of the Continuation Classes Committee was submitted, of which it was stated that a communication had been groups of 20 each – two in Stobswell School and one in Morgan Academy. The proposals have been transmitted to the military authorities. Approval was given to the recommendations by the board.Dundee Losses

From Trench to Table

One of the most outstanding features produced by the present war is the enormous increase in the consumption of cocoa, its value as a food beverage being insisted upon by all the belligerents in the feeding of the troops. This later fact has been perhaps, as least indirectly, responsible for the increased demand for vi-cocoa, by all upon whom stress of war has called for extra effort either in making munitions or in some equally important voluntary service. Vi-cocoa is supplied in the most palatable form.

This being so it is fortunate that the greater demand had led to a rearrangement of prices, and whereas vi-cocoa was not formally obtainable in less that a 6d size it is now possible to buy it everywhere in 4½ d, 7½ d, and 1s 3d tins, and also in convenient 1s and 3d packs.

The New Morgan

Lord Haldane to Open Large Extension
Lord Haldane, the ex-Lord-Chancellor, will visit Dundee next Tuesday for the purpose of opening the extension to Morgan Academy, which is now practically complete. The visit of the distinguished scholar and statesman is naturally evoking much interest, and it is expected that there will be a large gathering of citizens at the ceremony. The addition to the Academy enlarges the accommodation by about one third and will probably cost something in the region of £20,000 when everything contemplated is done. The new part has been added to the rear of the old and has been designed to harmonise as far as possible with the architecture of the main building. It is three storeys high, while the old part is two storeys, but the flat roof prevents the addition interfering with the familiar view from the front.

They are dependent on you and me and those like us, who out of generosity are ready to minister to the comforts of the men who are fighting, aye, and bleeding for us.
