J . titidn is what Bernard Geis calls "the first basic change in kids' books irt 20 years." This is Geis' method of applying a record to a book so that the child can put the book on the record players. After reading it, he can listen to it. Or vice versa. These are called "Magic Talking Books," and Geis, a former children's book editor, developed them in his search to combat TV's (JChlbiriation of Sight plus sound. The publisher, John C. Winston Co., put up $250,000 to aid in the development.

Some of the editors Well-versed in psychology, took a second look at the once-upon-a time stuff and were shocked. "Fairy tales," one said, "are unpleasant and scary.

The supermarket is gaining, but the 5-and-10- cent store is currently the largest seller of these volumes.

Republican supporters of tho private power contract sought to knock nut of an appropriations bill a provision that would earmark 6" 2 million dollars of Tennessee Valley Authority funds for a steam generating plant r.t Fulton, Tenn. The GOP strategy wns to avoid any specific legislative commitment for use of the money. Ren. Halleck (R-Ind>, assistant GOP lead, has said elimination of the provision for the Fulton plant would clear the way for using the 6\'j millions for a transmission lino to carry Dixon-Yates power.

Gilroy, D. D. Josiah, king of Judah, that is of the Southern Kingdom, with its capital in Jerusalem, and the rule over two of the 12 tribes, after the disruption of the Jewish people into two kingdoms after the reign of Solomon—this Josiah stands in the Old Testament and in the history of kings, as a conspicuous example of a good young man and a good king. Though the record is not clear, it is apparent that someone deserved great credit for the good young man. His father, King Amon, who ruled only two years before his own servants conspired and killed him, loft a record of evil. His grandfather, King Manasseh, though he repented late in life and sought to undo the evil he had done, had aeen a particularly bad man and dng during most of his career. But whatever good guidance and good counsel Josiah may lave had, when he became king, at eight years of age, much credit s due to the young king himself. The testing time came as he grew old enough to think and act the Old Testament reveals it, was) not always upon the high ,plane j to which it developed—that is th" conception of a God who was a God of the whole world and that the Jews themselves were a chosen people through whom all the nations were to be blest. The richness .and fullness of that development is in many of the Psalms and in the chapters of Isaiah, not to mention all the Officials Deny Politics in Mass Firing By WILLIAM W.

Rozzell issued this terse denial: "I did not have anything to do with the action of the board in regard to administrative costs of education. Rye also said Rozzell was not connected with the case and that proposed plant at Fulton. The Dixon-Yates contract, approved by President Eisenhower 1 but opposed by many Democrats, was signed last year by'the private power group with the Atom-. ic Energy Commission (AEC). Uri-' cler H. the AEC would buy the • private power for the TVA, to replace TVA power provided to various atomic plants. The contract, the TVA, and public power generally entered into yesterday's debate. The talk centered .on the one item, although. the bill under consideration would provide $1,285,,746,242 for the AEC, the TVA, other power affencies. and reclamation and Army Engineer work projects.

Why were the saints and prophets of Israel and Judah and he good kings, • when they hap- >ened to be good, so zealous about keeping the religion of the people free from the contamina ions of the pagan peoples sur- •oundlng them? It was not nerely a national zeal, a concern or a religion of their own. It vas a matter of moral integrity, if keeping social and family life ree from the debasing and licen- ious practices which were asso- :iated with idolatry.

One sees the early emphasis upon the purity of family life and the concern for social welfare in sanitary regulations and the strict responsibility of the individual to the health of the tribal community. It was this that the wisest and best among the Jews sought above all to maintain. If we would tout understand it, there are idolatries in modern life that are quite as evil and corrupting.

Little Girls Want Look of Cordination By DOROTHY ROE ^Associated Press Women's Editor Little girls like their mothers, want the corrdinated look nowadays. For special summer outings, local sewing center experts suggest a pint-sie ensemble consisting of blue-and-white striped cotton dress, matching solid color petticoat banded in the stripes, blue felt belt and matching tote if<ag trimmed in white rickrack and /ed felt cherries. It will make any moppet fell like a fashion leader, and it's simple to make ^from a standard pattern. The scoop neckline dress has self binding at neck and armholes. Three rows of white rickrack decorate the full gathered skirt and buttons march primly down the back from neck to hem. To make your work easier, use your .rnulti-slotted binder • attachment fw>r the binding and the gathering foot of your sewing machine for the skirt. The buttonholer make quick, neat work of buttonholes.. The blue felt belt and tote bag have a gay peasant look. Embroidered green felt leaves and crocheted stems from a background for the stuffed felt cherries, which are accenteed with a few red sequins and seed pearls. This basic idea can be used in many ways and in many fabric combinations, to give a small girl an extensive summer wardrobe at a budget price. A short-sleeved blouse may be worn under the sleeveless dress to make a quick-change jumper outfit. Best Way to Make Money Is Fast AP Newsfeatures 'MIAMI, Fla. — University of Miami business professors wondered if they could teach anything to Jose 'A. Ferre of Puerto Rico when he enrolled to seek a master's degree. The 52-year-old Ferre and his three brothers already had built a 50 million dollar business empire in Puerto Rico and Florida. But Ferre, .who got his degree the other day, said he learned a "many good things" about 'how to run a business. "One of the professors asked me why I took the course," Ferre related. "I told him I wanted to learn how to make money." Asked the best way to make a lot of money, Ferre replied: "Fast." When Ferre went into business in 1924, his father owned a Puerto Rican foundry worth $30,000. He and his brother went on from there. They now own the only ce'nent, glass and clay plants in Puerto Rico and operate paper mills, an iorn mill, a steamship company, drydocks and a marine terminal in that country. Last December, they bought a big concrete block manufacturing 'firm in Miami, and have been expanding their holdings here; Ferre and his 19-year-old son, Maurice, were fellow students at the University of Miami. The son has just completed his second year in engineering. LOST HONEY HONEY GROVE. Tex. (AP) — Add to the Davy Crockett stories: He named this little town when he camped here on his way to the Alamo. But the grove of trees and their honey have long since disappeared. Wholesale Coffee Price Boiling Down By Ward Cannel NEA Staff Correspondent NEW YORK — (NEA) — Wholesale coffee bean prices are boiling down. A pound that cost 95 cents in April went down to 53 cents before simmering up slightly this month. But if you think this means anything to you and your daily brew, forget all about it. You can put the five-cent cup of coffee in your memory book. Hardly any restaurateur or diner proprietor is going to pass the saving on to you. Why should he? In the few years since the 10- cent cup has been standard fare, there has been no decrease in America's coffee consumption. In fact, statistics show that 5,000,000 new coffee drinkers have joined the ranks since 1950. Besides, statistics also show that with higher prices and higher consumption, there has been no increase in the number of pounds of coffee America buys. The Pan American Coffee Bureau has drawn the obvious conclusion: this nation has learned how to stretch coffee. And the average American who used to drink 2.67 average cups of coffee each day, .now drinks 2.07 average cups of hot brown water each day. Two years ago, your counterman was following the Bureau's recipe of 45 cups from each pounc of cpffee. Today, the odds are that he's making closer to 6( cups from a pound that is drop ping lower in price than it has been in three years. At the executive office of one leading restaurant chain, how over, the purchasing agent put ji this way: "Sure, prices are lower a wholesale. But we've got high operating costs and higher costs of labor. We can't di'op our price back to a-nickel-a-cup." At the commissary o{ a chain whose coffee shops are well known coast-to-coast, a vice-presi dent said: "Sure, prices are lower a 1 wholesale. But nobody is lowering the cost of cream. We put cream in the coffee, don't we?" Old Summer Brings His That Need Aid even a gentle clean scrubbing wound.

See us for all your building needs. We carry a complete stock of building supplies and lumber at all times. GUNTER RETAIL LUMBER CO 422 K. DIVISION PHONE 7^3495 AP Newsfeatures Good old summer time brings with it an extra share of minor j ills that need first aid. Not that youngster don't fall down the yearj around, but at least some of the! winter time their knees are a little I protected by snowsuits. i You need to know how to care for j little ailments so they don't be come big ones. With minor cuts and scrofchesj that break the skin, our first con-! sideration is to avoid infection. If; the skin is broken there is always i danger of germs getting into the I body. The skin is our great j protector. Many a germ on the out-i side of the body is harmless, but let it gel below the armor of our skin and we have trouble. The more a small cut or scratch bleeds, the better off the child in. This ie within limits of .course. For a very deep cut or one from I which the blood is pouring in a pulsating stream means you should cover the wound with as nearly a sterile cloth as you can lay your hands on, hold it in place firmly and get to the hospital quick. But for the multitude of minor injuries a little bleeding means the wound is being washed clean of dirt. But bleeding or no bleeding, the first treatment is to" get the j wound clean. This is the most- difficult part of g^ood first aid. j The injured part hurts and the child doesn't want it touched. But it there is ground-in dirt you must scrub it clean and get out every, speck of dirt. It's dirt that carries j germs. Wash the spot with warm! water, soap and a clean cloth and mostly in the north-central and north-western states — coffee in still a nickel. But for most of the nation, who has at least one coffee-break in a restaurant each day, the price will still be a dime and the motto will still be: "It's not so good to the last drop so leave a little in the cup."
