BY SISTER MARY • t t NBA Service Writer Hundreds of home-makers daily face the problem of serving wholesome and paltable meals as economically as possible. Too often economy leads us into a rut and appetite lag from the sheer monotony of eating the same food in the same way over and over again. Unusual seasonings can do so much for everyday meat dishes that it behooves every cook to study their possibilities and make full use of them. Vegetable and meat combinations are interesting and appetizing as well as a means toward economy. The following rule for Chili Con Came is unusual in several respects. Is uses pork in place of beef and it adds corn and okra in place of the traditional beans. Chili poyder rather than chili peppors give the distinctive seasoning. Chili Con Came One and one-half pounds lean pork, 1-3 cup flour, 1 teaspoon salt, 1-8 teaspoon pepper, 1 clove garlic, 1 cup Tomorrow's Menu Breakfast :Halves of grape fruit, cereal cooked with raisins, cream, crisp toast, soft cooked eggs, milk, coffee. . , Luncheon: Green peas cooked With bacon in cream sauce salad of cream cheese and almond balls on bed of cress, strawperry turnovers, milk, tea.

About 20 other employes conencted with the turnroom department were thrown out of jobs when the turn- room crew refused to work for their present salary, which is regulated by a piece-work scale. As the result of the strike George S.

Stock on hand will be sold in the square block and shipped elsewhere to be made ready for barrels The strike cuts off the largest payroll of the mill, effecting approximately 50 employes, 30 of which are piece workers, whose salary ranged from $5 to ?11 per week. The other 20 em- ployes were paid by the day. No white ..men. participated, in the. strike, which reduced • the payroll from 65 to 15 employes, Mr. Meehan said. , "We were paying the turnroom crew all the company could afford. When they refused to continue with the piece work scale, all we could do was to shut down the turnroom until prices advanced on our product," Mr. Meehan said. 26 ••••••••^^•"""•••••••^•••••••^•^••••"•^••••••^^••i^"^^"^^ " " • ™ ^^^^^^^^B^^^M FOREST jjjr—' -— -,— Tiu —-n i \j_ii -.T-IT — -• -_m- inr.r-_-flJl /y-^^——-* *"-•• " " "•'_..'• ..

The shooting was said to be the culmination of sarcastic remarks between the two negro women over some fish. The Watts woman is said to have become enraged. Witnesses claimed she ran into the home of Melvin Riley negro, obtained his shot- v gun and fired a load of shot at the Pjoper woman. ' The gunfire took effect in the Coop| er woman's face, tearing away a por- ttion of her head. She died instantly. [The killing occurred in the yard of (Melvin Riley. Officers were called and the Watts > woman was arrested. She made no : effort to escape after the shooting. In jail she said she _ did not know the gun was loaded, A preliminiary hearing will probably be heard Monday morning. the attorney general's order and the 4 o'clock c)oslng hour Wednesday afternoon the banks and others' on the "inside" cashed $35,000 worth of these old warants, many of which had been discounted for speculative purposes— as low as 30 cents on the dollar. All this was going on while the public remained unadvised that the state treasurer was ready to redeem the scrip. XXX No government is more corrupt than that government which makes the rich and the powerful preferred creditors over common citizens holding the same collateral. The whole Little Rock crowd arc damned with this Indictment until investigation points out why Norwood kept the common people away and lot the bankers into the treasury first. Comptroller Griffin Smith today obtained an injunction stopping the payments until fair play is assured for all. That isn't enough. The state should put its finger on the man who engineered a transaction that has every earmark of a "deal." XXX This kind of corruption isn't new in America. Years ago the House of Morgan and other Wall Street firms had a monopoly on the purchase of bond issues by the federal government. Common Citizen John Smith couldn't buy bonds direct from his government. He had to wait until the House of Morgan had first bought them and added a brokerage fee for "handling." Joseph Pulitzer, who had made- millions as the great Democratic editor of the New York World, demanded the right of a common citizen to buy direct from the governmentr-and Morgan had to let him in. Pulitzer reaped a good profit, gave it to charity, and exposed the whole bond-juggling business to the nation. • And ever since then government bonds have been.available "to all comers. .•.'. .' :.j,.- .-. x . . -" ' -X XX' •••- — "Thirty dollars a month, and board and clothing " ' It sounds like the days of '17.' The 26 Hempstead county boys who climbed aboard a train here Thursday morning for Camp Pike, to be conditioned for two weeks before entering forestry work, didn't know about war, and couldn't have thought what was in the minds of older citizens as they sadly watched the boys depart. The oldest of the lads is only 25. The youngest of the World war veterans must be 33. The sound of that phrase "Thirty dollars a month" is ominous. As Mr. Roosevelt has said, this also is a war —a war against panic. But we are not downcast. Young men cheerfully marching away to such employment as is available are a sight calculated to stir us stay-at- homes to renewed hope and stauricher courage. Accused Slayer of Wife Is Held jj. T.

Comptroller Acts* to Prevent Banks Getting All Cash $35,000 Obtained Secretly on Highway Warrants Ahead of Public BEGUN BY~NORWOOD Withheld New. From Pub- He—Somebody Tipped Off Banks LITTLE ROCK—(/P)—An order temporarily restraining State Treasurer Leonard from paying out cash on old state highway warrants of less than $100 each was granted by Chancellor Dodge Thursday on petition of Staite Comptroller Smith acting as a taxpayer. The comptroller's counsel contended that payments which were begun Wednesday were illegal and would disrupt the state's bond refunding program. Attorney General Norwood had ruled Wednesday morning that warrants under $100 could be paid, and $35,000 was paid out on warrants by 'the treasury Wednesday afternoon. The case was set down for hearing before Chancellor Dodge next Wednesday, May 24. Paid Without Approval LITTLE ROCK—Within a few hours after Attorney General Hal L. Nor- wopd advised State Treasurer Roy V Leonard Wednesday that the treasurer has a right to pay highway warrants of less than $100 from any funds in the treasury to the credit of the highway fund without the claims having been submitted to the State Refunding Bond Board for approval, approximately $35000 worth of the small warrants were cashed at the treasury. Payment ranged from a few dollars to several thousand dollars, most o the warrants having been submittec _by banks, individuals or groups after :hc warrants had been acquired in ;he course of business or had been purchased from the original holder a i discount. It was reported that som of the holders of the warrants re ceivcd only 30 per cent of the fac value. Word Gets Out The opinion was written by Mr Norwood Wednesday morning and wa delivered to the treasurer immediate!; although deputies in Mr. Norwood' office told newspapermen that th opinion would not be made publi until Thursday. They said Mr. Nor wood left the city at noon and gav nstructions that the opinion was no ;o be given out until he returned Thursday. A copy of the opinion was obtained from another source, how/pr. Warrant holders began to appear at the treasurer's office within an hour after the treasurer received the opinion and payments continued until the office clised at 4 p. m., although no public notice had been given that the warrants could be cashed. Recovery Suit Contemplated State Comptroller Griffin Smith sent a letter to Mr. Leonard early in the afternoon advising him that he believed that the attorney general's ruling was contrary to provisions of Act 167, the Ellis general road debt e- funding act, and that the comptroller, acting as a taxpayer, would bring suit against the treasurer and his bondsmen to recover any money paid out before the state Refunding Board has approved the claims. Mr. Smith, Mr. Leonard and Governor Futrell compose the board. P. A. Lasley, who will represent Mr. Smith as his personal attorney in the suit prepared a complaint late Wednesday and will file it in Pulaski Chancery Court today, he said. The petition asks for a temporary restraining order to prevent the treasurer from cashing additional warrants until the Refundng Board has approved them; for a permanent injunction on final hearing to prevent payment to any holder of individual warrants of less than $100 when the warrants aggregate more than $100, and for judgment against Mr. Leonard and the Fidelity & Casualty Co. of New York, surety on the treasurer's official bond, for the amount paid out Wednesday.

After a quiet morning with milk flowing to markets under protection of hundreds of deputy sheriffs, a succession of sharp engagements flared in the afternoon. Near WilWaukee police and deputy sheriffs scored a victory over a force of pickets. About 50 pickets surrounded four milk trucks under convoy of a dozen officers in squad cars. When they clambered into the cars, officers came out with clubs swining. Four wounded pickets were left when strikers retreated.

First expressions from the president of France were polite and friendly. Germany's chancellor, Adolf Hitler, pleased the world with the consilia- tory tone of his address in which he approved the president's plan and promised co-operation. Half a score of nations, including Great Britain, approved the president's action.

Buck, Blytheville; Charles T, Coleman, Little Rock; Basil Baker, Jonesboro; Sam M. Casey, Batesville; J. Merrick Moore, Little Rock; and O. A. Graves, Hope.
