When cranberry jelly is being nude for holiday dinners, put up e^itra amounts in small glasses to fiivc away for Christmas. Many 'people do not know that cranberry jelly, properly made and sealed with paraffin, will keep like other fruit jelly and is always delicious with chicken dinners. /Cranberry jam is a good food gift now that jam is rationed. Make it 'of 2 pounds of berries, 1 cup rais- ens, 2 oranges. :t cups sugar, y, teaspoon salt. 1 pint water! Pick over the berries, and wash berries and raisins. Peel the oranges and remove any seeds. Combine tlie fruits and chop. Add sugar, salt and water. Cook about half ari hour until thick ..stirring often. Pour into hot sterilized jelly glasses. Cover with paraffin when cooi: Candied cVanberrics are Christmas-red in color, bright, plump, and semi-transparent and are good either ns a sweetmeat .or garnish. They are easy to make but take time. For 1 pound or quart of ber- nes use 3 cups sugar and 2 cups water, Select large, firm, perfect berries, wash and drain. Make 2 or 3 smell slils In each berry wii'i the point of a knife, in a faff-' saucepatn boll sugar and wntcr Is- gelher until clear. When cool, add berries, bring slowly to the boiling point, then remove froin stove anil let stand overnight, (The pan should be large e noueh to allow all berries to float on top of the syrup during the cooking. If the berries are heated too quickly, the skins will burst before they absorb the syrup.) Next day drain the syrup from (he berries and boil until it is thick. Allow the syrup to cool, add the berries, heat slowly and cook- gently 3 or 4 minutes. Allow berries to stand in syrup 2 hours or more. Then cook slowly for the third time just 5 minutes. Allow berries to stand in thick syrup overnight, warm on the stove until the syrup will pour easily, mid drain berries from the syrup. Spread them on a rack covered with a cheesecloth to food.

E. H. Williams representative of the American Federation of 1/nbor, Issued n blistering attack on' the sponsors of Amendment 35. He said "The. out of stale .sponsors 'of this mi-Amprican amendment, .some of the big. ruthless operators In the state . . . thought thai they could place the working man In a defensive position an ( | keep the people from knowing the truth. But they will have to change their minds and their tactics now. 'Ihey are on the defense instead of the oftfiisc and they are going lo slay there." "I here and now challenge Val Sherman, the chairman of the so- called constitutional amendment committee to come out and tell who he represents at)(i why they want Amendment 35 passed. We are not hiding as they are. We have nothing to rover uj>. We have no sinister scheme to tool the people with. We are talking to the people'and telling the whole truth. We want them to know". Williams continued, "We are go- Ing to take our story right down to the people . . . everyday people . . . in every village, town and hamlet. We defy the "out of state" operators to come out on tlie same platform with us and tell their tlory. Oh, no, they won't do that. Thej-'can't because then their whole scheme would fall through. They would have to tell all about their background, and answer whether or not it has any Nazi connections." "I predict, they won't make a move lo defend their position." Williams continued. "They are no- Ing to sit, (here in the Hull build- tm; in LHlle Rock and hide behind the Sliam Constitutional Amendment committee. They are going to sit there hiding behind the American Soldier and soliciting poor peonies money. While they also take it from the big operators But T also predict that when wr do smoke them out, It will be ii 1 thr> other direction. They win quickly gather up their belonging; and leave Arkansas, just. as they have hurriedly left so many othci Southern stales." Charles W. McWcry, president o' Ihe State Federation of Labor staled. "We had hoped that thr righteous people of our slate would have been given Ihe opportunity or settling this issue themselves However, Ihe sponsors of Amendment 35 have alcodcd our slatr with such a barrage of false, misleading propaganda that we nn forced I o defend (lie splendid record of labor in war time, and tr take the truth about the danger ous and hidden implications of tli amendment to Ui e people. Oi cause is just. We aiv proud of ot American efforls. We are dctei mined lo defend our basic way < living for that soldier who away."
