Miss Phoebe Harris, Assistant Home Demonstration Agent, gave demonstrations on making fruit cake, tomalie pie, fruit salad, candy and hot fruit punch. Miss Harris laso gave demonstrations on making Christmas gifts, at very little expense such as a belt from black walnuts, rugs, aprons, lamp shades, a belt from yard thread etc. By this time the bountiful food cooked was ready to eat. The members passed into the dining room and ate the delicious food cooked by Miss Harris after which the clubs adjourned. iirgj-o j>t*xJft4iow drive cum|.Ktign Friday with solici- , >ff cunvwAiui; th<- duwntuwn area, j Ust y«ir UK- negro GixxlMluws; for <K m-«jy families during i ;• Ou-i&tnuui huluti»)'&, Anyone wish- j ii.fi ki contrlbuU' »ie asked to call! ami a representative will pickup ' Stock on SPG Is Prohibited Stepped Up Construction Makes Program Necessary Announcement was made at the Sou til western Proving Ground this morning that due to the stepped up construction program at the project it was essential that no livestock be permitted to roam the reservation. From the Office of the Commanding Officer came the following statement: It is necessary that all livestock now at large on the Southwestern Proving Ground reservation be taken up at once by their owners. After January 1st, any animal found on the reservation will not be returned to the owner. We hate to take drastic action, however, in the interest of the United States Government, we cannot do otherwise than confiscate any livestock found on the project after January 1st the sur- '" Caught in The Draft" I ^.THEATERS Too Murh ""~" i "Doctor, do you think the anesthetic v:li make me sick?"

"They should make money. I'll turn the details over lo you. From now on you'll be able to manage as you sec best." Carol could hardly wait until he wus gone to rush in and tell Antly what a mistake he was making. Why, he couldn't let Mr. Herrick manage the store. Mr. Herrick would ruin it! The People's Store? That slogan. Mr. Dearborn had • spent 50 years achieving would be lost in 30 days! She had thought she didn't want the will to be found. Now she began to hope it would. Soon! The quicker Andy knew the terms of it the better chance he would have to fulfill them. She must warn Andy. She was the only one who realized the seriousness of his first decision. Though she couldn't hint the contents of the will, she could reason with him. "I couldn't help hearing some of your conversation with Mr. Herrick," she began bravely. "I wish you wouldn't listen to him until you've—well, you might have other ideas when you get into it." The phone jangled. Carol started for it but Andy waved her hack. "Oh, hello, Linda," his voice was warm. "No, I haven't forgotten. I'll make the Cocktail Bar by 5. I have things fixed uio here." To Carol he said levelly, "I'll be out the rest of the day. Turn everything that coraes up over to Mr. Herrick." Her face showed her disappointment. He must have seen it i f«'r he added, "Don't look so gloomy, Carol. You don't need me ;m,und here. I'd rather sail yucbt than run a *toM>. And 1 know a whale at a lot mure about it" Hut it didn't ,«ofter> the rebuff. He had m:uh> it Jnirly clrtir that !><' expected no interference from her. "Don't mahc c.vcuscs, Andy," *)>!• Kiiii finally. "A boat and a sUirt» arc jus-t alike in that they m-«l ;i real rnptain at the helm." For a moment, he stared at her. Then, FlmiKSina, he picked up his hat and wiilkixl out. She watched him go, her heart .sic); within her. A dozen times that afternoon she said, "Ask Mr. Herrick Uiat. Mr. Andy left word you were to tiike it up with Mr. Herrick." The news flew through the store. Mr. Herrick was in charge. Mr. Herriek, whom they disliked. Some talked of quitting. Others openly resented Andy's choice. That night, 12 Christmas extras were laid of!. "Too many even for Christmas," Mr. Herrick explained. "We're cutting expenses." Mary Todd was one of them. She came to Carol, her voice thick with worry. "I'd counted on my job until Christmas. I knew I'd be laid oft Christmas Eve, but not before. I bought a fur coat," she said anxiously. "Now I can't finish paying for it." Carol studied her. She was young and eager and to her the possession of a fur coat represented happiness. Impulsively, "arol said, "Come stay with me, Mary. We'll share my apartment until you get a job. It won't cost you a cent. You can use your money for the coat." Mary's eyes brightened, then clouded. "I couldn't let you do .hat. There's no reason for you to take me in." "It's Christmas," Carol smiled. 'That's reasoii enough for any- hing. Let's just* say this is my Christmas gift to you." "Oh, thank you!" Mary threw ier arms around Carol's shoulders and hugged her. She hurried off ier steps light with joy. * * * FT was 11 o'clock when Andy x reached the office Saturday. He vas smilingly unaware of disapproving eyes which greeted lira. To make his appearance more disconcerting, a half-grown mongrel pup was following him. "This is Cinder," he told Carol, le reached down to pet the dog's haggy head. "He's not exactly parlor dog but he's faithful. He trayed to the house the day I anie back. Seemed to. like me, Welcomed me home." He pausea, added, "He was the only one to do it." "Does he follow you everywhere?" "No. He hopped the trunk of the car as 1 backed out, I didn't see him until I stopped down town." The dog wagged a friendly tail. "I'll have to take him home when I go to lunch. I'll take him down and lock him in the car in the meantime," But Linda came just as Andy was leaving with the dog. "Lunch, darling," she purred. "Haven't you spent enough time in this stuffy old store?" A half hour, Carol thought firimly. I wonder what she would think if she knew Mr. Dearborn used to spend 16 out of the 24? Then Linda saw Cinder. "Oh, that awful dog!" She shivered. "Why don't you get rid of him. Andy? He leaves hairs on everything. And the dirt!" She rolled ier eyes in disgust. "He's only a pup, Linda. I'll teach him manners when he [rows up." Her voice was suddenly sharp. 'You're not serious about keeping m, Andy Dearborn?" "Why not? The old house Is pty—now." Carol glanced «t lim. His eyes were shadowed. "Well, I won't ride with him!" Linda declared. "When I used the car yesterday my white jacket vas filthy with hairs. I can't stand him, Andy!" "I'll take him home before we go, then." Impatience crept into his voice. "You wait at the Main Street door for me and I'll pick you up in 15 minutes." * * * PAROL told the incident to Bill when she met him in the store cafeteria for lunch, but Bill's mind was filled with trouble of his own. "It's that old elevator to toy- land," he told her. "I'm going to see Andy about it." "You'll have to see Mr. Herrick about it. Andy has told me to send everyone to him." I don't want to see Mr. Herrick. I'm afraid he'll turn -me down and something has to be done." "Is it still working?" "Yes. It run?. But yesterday when it was loaded with children it almost stepped. I thought it was going to fall." "Oh, that would be terrible!'* She was worried. "Sutely Mr. Herrick will tend to it." "He's put me off on everything else I've ever asked," Bill retorted. "What if he does the same with this?" (To Be SPG Men Buy Defense Bonds Pa it of $228,000 Payroll Goes to Aid Government In tho past four days employees (if the Southwestern Proving Ground have laid close to $1500 on the line for the purchase of Defense Saving Stamps and Bonds, according to a statement Friday from Harry Scott of SPG who is handling the sale at the project. Officials in cooperation with the local postmaster arranged facilities for selling the stamps and bonds at tho Project, in order to make purchases as convenient as possible for the employees. No effort toward promoting the sales has been undertaken other than the posting through out the project of placards stating that the Defense Samps and Bonds might be purchased in Mr. Scott's j office in the Contractor's Building I A general memorandum to this effec was also issued. Thursday the word seemed to have got around, for Mr. Scott sold $1.000 worth of bonds through the day.

Callahan Construction Company will come to town Friday night with more than $228,000 in their pockets. Local merchants predict the buying wave Saturday will exceed anything experienced in this town to date. Friday's payroll is short by some ?20,000 from last week's figure but still represents a lot of money. During the week the semi-monthly payrolls were released for the Con- itructing Quartermaster, running something over ?21,000, and the Architect-Engineers', Howard, Needles Tammen and Bergendoff, amounting o about 527,000. • « • Land Bought Almost 1,000,000 acres of sub-mar_mal land in the southwestern dust bowl has been purchased by the United States Department of Agriculture since 1935.

Ceylon, a British colony known for its exports of tea and jewels issued the stamp, above, in 1937 to honor the coronation of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. Anuradhapura, which flourished between 457 B. C. and 1109 A. D. was built in an inner and outer circle and comprised 256 square miles. Most of its people were Buddhists who spent their timo in spiritual contemplation. They depended on the people for support and, as a consequence, declined. The ruins display a high degree of craftsmanship and provide an insight to the formation of the Buddhist religion and culture. Before the war scaled the international boundaries, travelers were able to purchase precious and semi-precious gems in the country at low prices. Those stones which could be obtained for ?50 in Ceylon brought hundreds in New York. The jewels were cheap because they were mined from "poor man's diggings"—from surface operations rather than from lode formations.
