One of the most exciting of these bits of news is the fact that Mrs. Franklin D.

There nrc no end of cupboards and closets in the new presidential kitchens and the First Lady could tell just what each was used for, without pecking in to .see, Nor did she mind showing whole shelves of conned vegetables to a group of young women who had automatically supposed all such stuff In the White House would be bought fresh. Incidentally, Mrs. Roosevelt spoke to all the servants and "all the servants spoke to Mrs. Roosevelt in a way which showed very plainly that they had met one another before.

In more than a score of elections held under the local option clause of the Thorn legalization legislation, the trend has been more than ten to one in favor of prohibition'. Two counties—Howard and Nevada —have voted dry. Elections on the question arc expected to follow each other thick and fast during.the coming year. • . Despite thc "election box score" showing a big majority of those voting favoring prohibition, Stale Revenue Commissioner Earl R. Wiseman predicted Monday a $200,000 increase in liquor gallonage tax in 1936 over 1935.

"The malt tax collections for this year and last furnish proof that home brew making is on the decline in Arkansas," Wiseman said.
