[Bird Roofing Car on Display Here Manufacturing Firm Was Founded When Washington Was President An innovation in roofing displays was seen for the first time in Hope | when Bird & Son's Expando Demonstration Car visited the yard, of their 1 local dealer, the Hope Retail Lumber Yard, on Monday, and gave a demon- I stration before the lumber yard's or- k ganization and a number of contract; and architects. G. Wikelund, facotry representative jfrorn the Chicago office, brought the par to Hope early Monday from [Jhreyeport. He was met here by B. Jorris, of Little Rock, state represen. ative for Bird & Son, and both men landled the demonstration. I The car—silver with Blue and Red ettering—travels on the highway at ender width, and when a display is be made the driver moves a single |ver and electric power expands the dy in ten seconds to nearly twice is former width. Another movement the lever and it is closed again.

Special exhibits holographs, etc. show just how Bird cfings are made, and an experienced pofing man travels with the car tc questions pertaining to their panufacture and application. 1 Although this type of car has been sed by Marshall Field & Co. and by bveral wholesale grocery companies, gird & Son are the first to use it in i roofing field, and they are operat: four of the mat the present time. Bird & Son is one of the oldest con- rns in the U. S. having been estab- hed in 1795—when George Washing- pn was president, and this new fea- lure is in keeping with their general ipirit of progressiveness. Besides As- alt Roofing Products they manufacture Neponset Floor Covering, Building Papers, Cartons, Cartridge Paper, Asphalt Sidings, Paper Mill achinery, etc., and have plants in the east, Canada and Chicago. Mr. Harbin of the Hope Retail Lum- fber Yard says that samples of Bird (Roofs are on display in their office land that there is a Bird Roof for cv- typ? of building. Editor's Note: I bought dinner /o a tuanrtcrinf/ newspaper man Sunday night —and in return he wrote this story unsolicited.

Unconscious of the pity he himself aroused, he had time to pity others. I thought he was resourceful and courageous. He had worked in big cities. He seemed quite competent. You, read- nd his story bclotu, may judge for yourself. The world has many competent men and women out of work today. Ana some are resourceful and courageous. On Christmas Eve they seem like good soldiers, singing a mournful song, marching along to a hoped-for Better Day. If you cherish your country, you will remember with a humble ami contrite spirit Christmas week. ,,Told by a Wanderer ' Santa Claus, of course, will read each of the 320 letters from children to him published in the Hope Star Saturday. It would, do good to the rest of the older^Jks if they would read them. TnejfJlfeach sermons listened to once' and" now forgot. In them are the hearts of children. They tell a certain faith—and a great fear. The children are afraid Santa wilt forget. He h as so much to do.

So, having done thai, the litlle lellers take up the burdon of some who are not ( so close to Santa Claus as are the writers. Listen to themi "Don't forget my .little brother and sister." "Don't forget my little friend." "Don't forget my mother and daddy." "Don't, forgel Johnnie and Grandma." "Don't ' forget my little nieces." One little girl cautions that "daddy and mother" must not be forgot and adds: "And don't forget me." Remember 1 the Poor And again and again and again the writers themselves .forget self, saying: "Don't forget the little poor children." "Don't forget all the other little boys and girls." "Don't forget all the little orphan children," They want so little, these little people. All one girl asks is: "A doll, apples, oranges- and candy." With a world so full of beautiful things, these will do. "A doll, a doll buggy and candy" will do another. A third wants only "a pair of socks and a football." A fourth asks only for a "doll and a purse." . •. i , So many want practical things. 3oy asks a "dinner pail," adding, fear he may want too much, "som candy and nuls."

Many New Cotton Uses Discovered Range From Menus to Highway Materials, G. A. Sloan Reports NEW YORK.— (ff)— New u s es which he said would result in "effecing greater consumption of cotton with enduring benefit to American cotton growers and manufacturers," were outlined Sunday by George A. Sloan, president of the Cotton-Textile Institute. "Although American cotton manufacturers, at great expense, have pioneered development of new uses during the past five years," he said, "the results of their studies in this country arc available to consumers of cotton in Europe, South America, Canada and the Far East. The quest of new uses has developed into a world-wide movement with an increasingly helpful influence to be anticipated there- from." The progress made in styling and designing American cotton fabrics resulted, he said, in the acceptance recently by the Victoria and Albert Muin London of a group of decorative cottons made in the United States. An exhibit of newly-developed adaptations of various cotton fabrics For apparel, household and industrial purposes was sent on a tour of textile centers in England, France, Holland, Switzerland, Egypt and Spain this year. Among the new uses of cotton evolved in the United State s and adopted for commercial use abroad he listed fabrics for letterheads, advertising brochures, menus, radio broadcasting manuscripts, and programs of all sorts. Decorative possibilities of wall paneling through use 'of thin veneers of five woods mounted on layers of cotton shepting have aroused foreign interest. Use of cotton fabrics in construction of roads, experiments in which were conducted n Texas and South Carolina, he s aid, has been investigated thoroughly in Spain, Germany, India, Egypt and England. In England, an actual construction for test purposes was completed this year in the borough of Burnley. Lancashire. Europe, likewise has contributed constructive ideas that have helped Stimulate public interest in the United States, he said. French fashion experts have designed women's apparel of cotton and cotton crash end denim tiou- novelty jackets and lounging Two Brothers Held Following Attempt To Burglarize Store Men Refuse to Admit Being Connected With Robbery Try EFFORT FRUSTRATED v • - • ' • Merchandise of Store Is Piled on Platform When Discovered ' ATLANTA, Texas.—J.
