' The new features of furnishing in the kitchen and cooking equipment which will be shown, have developed through a long period of years from the crudest beginnings. < They will appear on the stage of the Saenger theater for four days beginning Tuesday, March 15, Each day's program will bo held from 2 to 4 o'clock. Admission will be absolutely free, the: expenses of the school being borne by:the newspaper and its co-operatives in the food and furnishings trades. . The Colonial kitchen was 'necessarily crude, but the aromatic dishes were cooked over.the open fireplace, in huge iron pots. The old Colonial kitchen glowed with pewter and brass and since the latch-string was ever out, there was nothing to prevent the wayfarer from indulging in a quiet inspection of the' homely, comfortable, realm. His eyes would have fallen on the quiet cheese-press, cherry butter-paddles, brass kettle, sausage guns. Until the first quarter of the Nineteenth century had passed, family cooking and baking was done at the open fireplace in great pots which hung from the lug-pole or crane; among the embers, or within the brick oven. Great roasts of pork, beef, or, venson, were hung on hempen string'; and through twisting and .turning were delicately roasted on all sides. • Mrs. Kate Stafford The Dutch oven or tin kitchen,% one of the early developments fo.r' .the pioneer housewife. It was a tih,"b<>X- like oven,-open-on one side ot"the blaze, standing on ashes on four legs. An iron spit ran through it, on Wh were placed roasts of meat. /..''• And for serving—when the.modern housewife views her table of shining silver, linen and china, she may thujik of the old "burl", bowl,'which'-'tpe Colonial cook fillepl with stew, and placed in the middle of the rough, table within the reach of all. The^first settlers in this country used spoons hollowed from' soft wood, or clamshells attached to sticks. And there are modern youngsters who are lucky enough to find the old gourd on grandfather's farm which was used for water, as were skin-nags and "blackjacks," or mugs made of leather.

A. huts and halls, his experience as a city rescue-mission preacher, and in the mining camps of north Idaho, his membership in the Kansas City Chamer of Commerce and his many addresses before various men's clubs have all tended to equip him with a real man-to-man message.

Action by Congress Completed on Bank Measure Friday BUI to Open" Vast Re- sourfcet of Federal Bank* \ \ to Hoove* / PRESIDENT SPEAKS Hoover Plans Message to Congress on Subject of .- Bankruptcy WASHlNGTON-W-Congress sent the Olass-Steagall credit expansion bill to the JVhlte House late Friday and President Hoover announced he would sign it Saturday Without comment The "measure opens the vast resources of the federal reserve to new credit for the banks and the depositors and makes available almost a billion dollars'in 'gold for national use and security. It bears the hopes of congressional leaders of both parties for a revival of confidence and the promise of the ad. ministration that, it will keep America oh the upward swing economically. Senator Glass, democrat, Virginia, who sponsored the legislation,, put it through the last step of its record breaking congressional run i Friday with a brief explanation of the senate of the agreement adjusting) differences between the senate and house. Senate Gives Approval The senate gave formal approval Without a word of debate and withr out a roll call. Its action followed affirmation by the house, where Representative Steagall, democrat, Alabama, guided the legislation. Announcing later at the White" House that he would have a statement to make in signing the bill Sat-, urday, .HopveiO'alsO' ^(closed \h/i •was sendlng-to-cohgress next week a Special; message on the subject of bankruptcy.' Coincidental.^, Senator Fletcher of Florida, ranking democrat on the banking committee, put before the senate bill to safeguard depositors in closed banks. He would have national banks contribute five per cent of their capital to. establish a "depositors' guaranty fund." He also would.make more stringent the penalties for banking la wviolations. Senator George, democrat, Georgia, joined Fletcher in a senate appeal for greater protection to depositors. Senator Glass has now before the banking committee a comprehensive measure including relief for depositors. The Glass-Steagall bill which becomes effective immediately upon Hoover's signing the act, is to be in operation only until March 3, 1933. However, it does contain a permanent provision making it possible for banks in •groups of five to obtain the same emergency opening for new rediscounting privileges with the federal reserve as is allowed individual banks of less than $5,000,000 capitalization under the one year provision o'f the law. The bill makes it possible for one year to use direct government obligations as collateral for currency, thus releasing about $750,000,000 in gold which is now put up in addition to the regular 40 per cent gold reserve requirements as collateral because of the shortage of eligible paper. The other one year provision of the bill allows individual banks of less than $5,000,000 capitalization to rediscount their promissory notes with the federal reserve to be secured by sound paper that can not now be rediscounted. i .s. *a.•....% I Rudy Spending Vacation in Paetfk Bungalow for Two Levy Child Burned; Condition Critical Mother, Attracted by Her Daughter's Screams, Beats Out Flames LITTLE ROCK. — Lorene Harness, soix-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.

New Cigarette Tax Stamps Are Mailed New Method Will Guard Against Removal of Tax Stickers LITTLE ROCK, Ark.— (ff)— The new "stick-tight" cigarette tax stamps, designed to prevent the re-use of stamps which is costing the state an undetermined amount of taxes, are being distributed by the state revenue department to be placed in use March 1. Earl R, ^Wisemain, deputy commissioner in charge of cigarette tax collections, said the new stamps "absolutely will prevent evasion of cigarette taxes through the re-use of stamps," "They (the-evaders) may find some other way," he added; "and if they do, we'll find some/ way to break it up just as we have the re-use of stamps." The new stamps are the only ones thus far developed which will adhere sufficently to the transparent wrapper to prevent their removal. Some time ago, the revenue department ordered the dealers to remove the transparent wrappers from packages and place the tax stamps on the packages But this brought vigorous protests from the manufacturers who contend the wrapping was a protection for their product and its removal would cause damage. The revenue department then vacated that order bu,t required the dealers to stnadpaper the wrapping so that old stamps would ftdhere. Now this prac- tive will no longer be necessary as the new stamps can be easily placed on the packages, and cannot be removed without destroying them.
