There's quite a number of men who left the piney woods and Trinity river bottomlands to climb the heights o: finance and politics. But on June 5 they'll be back to listen to the plaintive strains o: the fiddles, rubbing the elbows of their costly coatsleeves against th blue denim workshirts of the farm folk. E. N. Robinson, one of the originators of the gathering idea, say it is always a thirsty crowd whooping it up for favorite bands, favorites known by such names as th Cocn Creek Ramblers and McGUl' One Man Family, for example. Business Houses Close "We put four of the biggest bar reis of ice water we can get on the square at dawn," he said, "anc by 11 o'clock they have to be re filled every hour." Candy stores, hamburger stand and soft drink peddlers do a lan< office . business but other busines houses in Athens just give up th business ghost for the day. No entry fee is charged but large cash praes are given by the merchants and former citizens of Athens. Any attempt to commercialize the gathering brings down the fire of angry fiddlers. Cotton-Picking Music A prominent Texas politician was ejected forcibly from the town a few years ago when he attempted, to speak. /'We like him all right," one Athenian said, "but we don't want bur party ruined with politics." Polks here agree the music is corny but sweet to their ears. "The boys around here kinda go for this cotton-picking music,! they say.

When she geis herself a diamond and is looking forward Lo living happily ever after, they tell her: "Make the most of Jim's attentiveness. II won't be thai \vay alter you're married." Then when she u>- a bricze and loving it they say: "By the limp you've been married five years he won't even 'remember your wedding anniversary, i have Lo remind my husband every year." Then when she and Jim by planning, saving, and budgeting manage to make the down payment, on a house, her friends start telling her what a headache home ownership is. They'll be kind enough to remind her that when a water faucet starts to drip she can't just call the janitor and forget abouc it. Then when r>he has produced her first baby and is feeling proud and happy, her friends come in and say, "You had better make the most of all the attention and rest and waiting on you're getting now. Because its going to be.tqugh going when" you get that baby home and have complete charge of him yourself." Tlien, when she struggles along and gets the boy through school and he picks out a girl who is nice, pretty and crazy about him and who—wonder of wonders- even Mama thinks is all right, and the big day of his wedding arrives the women gather around o say "Well how does it fee! to be losing your son?" And so it goes. If a woman wants to enjoy life's high spots she has to learn early to turn a deaf ear to hi?r women friends. For they will always find some reason to console her when she coffee out of the jar, scrapes off the corn- tied the she first position sealing on the inside of the original screw-on cap. Next, the jar is filled with the home preserves and the "thrifty lid" is placed over the mouth of the jar. By screwing on the outside cap which came with the jar, enough pressure is supplied to make an airtight closure. VACUUM FORMS WHEN JAR COOLS When the jar cools an internal vacuum will have been formed and the outer cap is removed. The "thrifty lid" which remains on the jar will seal the contents indefinitely. No rubber rings are necessary. A housewife is shown, left, placing the new-type lid on a jar she has filled with cherries. Designed to conserve vital war materials, the new lids are in line with the government's suggestion that commercial glass containers be made to have a definite reuse value, thus conserving both materials and labor.

She has 'gone into a field that, until the war, was closed to women. Not only is ihe doing a hard and somewhat dangerous job—she is doing it well. You're proud of her. So you start telling a man about her. He's interested right off the bat. But before you've finished dc- cribing this ''new woman" who is doing a man's job, the man lo whom you are talking will ask you. one question about her "What does she look like?" he'll ask with interest. And if you answer, "Oh, she's nice enough looking—but she doesn't care much about clothes and doesn't wear make-up," the man will lose interest immediately in your heroine. He has heard all he wants to hear. "What does she look -like?" is the question all men want 10 know about all women — even though the man asking is happily married and the father of a houseful of children or, so old you would think he would have stopped wondering about women's looks long ago. That makes it tough on women. For all the while that they are trying to do men's jobs as well as men they are expected by all men to look both attractive and feminine. BE CAREFUL ABOUT DROPPING GLAMOR getting critical. Just the other day I heard a young man, walking behind a couple of women who shouldn't have worn slacks in the first place, say, "A lot of women are just using the war as an excuse for going around looking like hoboes." So watch your step, ladies, and don't carry your deglamorizin_ too far. No matter what kind oi a job you urc holding down 01 how much volunteer war w you are doing, the question men want answered about you "What does she look like?' 1 Read Courier News want ads.
