', Sue h episodes us Representative Jyamberlspn's attack upon the Roose- yelt boys' military records, Representative Taber's criticism of the OWI'a Roosevelt cartoon bgok, Representative .Cpoley's alarm about wooden guns atop the House Ofl'icc Building, are both petty and vicious. i IiGVi'cvc;' ,1 ues I ion able the method by which the Rooscvclts originally acquired their military titles, the Presiclent's $ojis have made good oflicers, and deserve.. that respect which wo pay to all good fighting men.

If he had been in -North Africa, and discovered that wooden "guns and tanks were deceiving Rommel while the • genuine weapons were being sneaked around to smite the Nazis unexpectedly from elsewhere, would he have felt impelled to get onto the radio and t,ell Rommel? The moai Jwrilab'e explanation for such petty, harmful actiojis is that .these congressmen arc victims of h,eadlineilis— a far from rare disease that becomes virulent when politicians have not seen their names in headlines tor a few days. (imc-and-a-hair or double time should not be paid for Saturday and Sunday work that fell within Die basic work week. The Whl* did not countermand the presidential decree, but instead gave those workers a bonus that accomplished exactly the same purpose. 'Without Die bonus, said I he WLR, the workers would have lost income they had expected to receive. Wasn't thai the purpose of the order—to have everybody work a minimum week before he began collecting premium pay for overtime? Co-Oppj'fltiftn Eastern motorists have an opportunity to save everybody in the country, themselves included, from future grief! If they justify the confidence placed in them by 01'A Administrator Brown, and limit their driving to what really is essential, there will be no necessity for rcimposing the onerous and expensive checking system, that Mr. Rrow.n has discarded.

Premium Bonus • ••• It is difficult to understand the reasoning of the War Labor Hoard when it granted a M per cent bonus to swing, shift workers in a Connecticut plant, as compensation for preniiym pay lost through a presidential order. ' The executive order provided that To Build the State's Budget Jn Systematic Way One of ll\c standing complaints of Arknnsns leglslntois, thiit llicy seldom get adequate opportunity to study apinoprlnlion bills or the stale budget ns a whole, should be removed by Ih.c enactment of the new law .establishInjj a system of budgetary control. The imblic saw at the recent session a pnln- fnl deinonslrntlon of how not to handle sucli matters eltlcicntly, and Ibis situation yus prl- nmrlly clinrecnblfi to Inck of system. It is said (or the members ot the Joint Budget Committee thai they worked al noon hours, ulghls, Salur- dnys and Sundays, nud gave up week-end trips to their homes, but for their study and Iffl' action by the mcmber.shii) as n whole there.was « mass ot appropriation measure.; numbering anywhere from 100 to 135. Even a pro-session meeting of the Budget Committee—none was held this year—does not meet the. need of other inombors for more time to familiarize themselves v;ith the bills on which they mill be iiskcd to vole. Preparation is the essence of the new system. Slate departments and agencies will be required to present their budget estimates not later than tilt 1 October 1 preceding a legislative session. During October the comptroller will prepare the biennial budgets, laid Immediately after the NOT vember election and send copies of the department request and his own recomEnendations to all members of the incoming legislature, and to the i])conii:ig as well as the outgoing governor In c.uc a change of adtninutrr.Uons ts pending. Thus everybody yho is going to share responsibility for making appropriations will hare a full two months before the session to acquaint him; self thoroughly with the proposed financial proems-,-, aiul if he falls to do so through lack o! . Interest or diligence will have only himself to blame. —Arkansas Gazette. • SO THEY SAY A victory with veaigeance is ultimate defeat in the modern world.

Pointing out that haste really docs mak.e waste when preparing meat, Miss Coicman' said that iiomemakers can str.etch the family meat supply by proper handling and • preparation. As a guide" for homemaKers to tollow in checking their meat-handling methods, Miss CoJeman lists the following practices reco.uimeiulcd ' by Miss Blanche liiiiidoipii, assistant extension specialist hi foods-and nu- Iriti'pri' of the ' Uniyersity "of Arkansas College ,of Agriculture: Keep frcsli meat clean and 'cold As sijon .as fresh mea'.t arrives in I'the kitchen, remove the \vrappfii; paper, if the meat has been purchased, and store loosely covered, in a cold place. Ground meal spoils quickly even in cold placos, so cook it within 24 hours. The so- called variety meats—liver, kidney, brains, anil so forth—spoil more quickly than other cuts, ijook them promptly. Mildly cured ham should be stored the, same as fresh neats, while strongly cured meat needs a cool, dark, dry place, lighliy screened. Meat should be wiped with a. wet clotii before cooking. Soaking meat draws out the flavor and juices. Occasionally, however, soaking may be necessary to remove excessive salt. Tiie method to be used In cooking meat is determined by the tenderness of the meat, the size of thp cut, and the kind of meat. Roast or broil tender, well-fatted cuts in an uncovered pan without- water. Tough cuts require long cooking in a covered pan with steam or water, using only a small amount of water. Regardless of cut, add fat to very lean beaf, lamb, or veal for richness and flavor. Then cook as braised steaks, pol roast, or i' v w. He sure to cook pork well done as a health safeguard; The most im]x>rtant rule to follow in meat cookery is to : use moil- crate te"m|)oratur'es. 'This' keeps in tiic flavor and juices of the meat. Keeii Ihe water in which the meat Is being cooked just below the boiling point—simmering. Use ham shanks and meat rinds to flavor beans and peas. Put, bones and all lean meal trimmings hi the soil]) pot.

QUICK CHANGE CHAPTER XVII EAUTIFUI, Sky Harbor here at Phoenix had nearly 10,000 people put lo \volcprne the man and girl flying across the nation in a sailplane.'One reason was, free barbecue. A local meat packer and rancher, inordinately proud of his' town, had made a .deal with officials at the flying fields. "This valley around Phoenix," herald, "is npjiv the second largest ayjalion center in America. You Army fellows planned a big soaring carnival for Captain Ca.rr. All right, we hometown folks can chime in. I'll furnish the meat if your Army cooks .will make the barbecue. I'll get pickles, bread and music top." All of this was as western as tlu: sunset itself. Westerners will arrange a barbecue for the slightest or no reason! This lime, they had a reason; distinguished dyers from all neighboring slates were to be here, young men »:>d women pioneering the new Held of soaring as a big-businesj and big-adventure enterprise.. At Thundcrbird Field and'Luke Field as well as Sky Harbor sailplanes had been dolling Ihe air all day as contest entrants arrived from surrounding slates. Los Angeles had a team of experts. So did Albuquerque, El Paso, Denver, San Antonio, and Salt Lake City. This was to be the biggest'soaring meet in history. The approach ot Capt. Jiimn) Carr's transcontinental glider was announced to the crowd by loud speakers. His jvas a craft decorated in brilliant' gpjd—anylhing eel men again, Miss Pat. You cno\v how to act your part. ' "But what do you mean? Why im I do—?" The golden ship was only 100 yards off now and had come to a full rest. Pat and Ed trolled among the group of n dozen or so mechanics and field officials who were the first to fan out. But other people were leaving the crowd, Pot observed. In a minulc or so the plane would be sur- loumlcd. "Miss Pat!" Ed Bryan murmured. "H was your picture they look at Elmira and Cleveland and Chicago. Don'l you see?" "I know, Ed. Bui—" "There hnvcn'l been any slops between Chicago nnd here. That itself is ,1 kind of-record, for two- seater towed (light in this country, over these mountains and all. And so—" "I know that. But you know nd I know that Lorainc Stunrt's i there with Jimmy. And she's kcly lo act up, Ed! I mean, if she ces me here. We don't waul to nakc a scene!"

A HULLABALOO of greeting . followed. And—the next 35 seconds were a strange mel.ingc to Pat. She caught a glimpse of several men all trying lo shake Jimmy's hand at once. Another glimpse of Lpraine Stuart, smiling from the passenger seat behind him. Next moment, she saw big Ed Bryan sort of lunge in front of Lpraine and begin to lift her bodily from the sent. Everywhere people were sliouling, laughing, lalking, all at the some time, amid a happy confusion. Lpraine was saying something, or trying to. "What are you doing here?" Pat heard her shriek at Ed Bryan. "Business, iniss!" she heard Ed hont back. "You wanla keep uiet!" What?" : I soy you wanta keep quiet, you nderslaiKl me!" There was menace in Ed's tone, 'at would not have heard him but or the fact lhal he had lo shout :, and she herself had been pulled nd crowded close behind him. Duly now, in facl, did he release er wrist. II was nol easy lo extricate I-a- ainc. The safety bell had to be nbuckled. She was stiff-muscled rom sitting so long, nnd the crowd vas jostling the ship. But big Eti fled her, pulled her right out of he plane. He managed to keep ip n sort of running hullabaloo vbilo about il, and Pat saw him iclibernfely push two or three nen into positions lhal screened vhal he was doing here. Pal was ippalled. Was the man nclually rying lo punish Loraine? Do her bodily injury? He perhaps ha<J cause lo, but he hadn'l indicated iny such wralli! That wasn't the answer, of Because, next moment Pat felt jig Ed manhandling her own self. He lifted her like a child, plumped her down in the passenger seat! "Sh-h-h-h, don't talk!" he growled once more, al her ear. Loraine discovered Pal, then. "What are you doing?" Loraine shrieked, "DON'T CROWD UP, LADY!" Ed roared now, dominating everybody and pushing Lorainc backward. "STAND BACK, STAND BACK, PLEASE! THE PHOTOGRAPHERS WANT TO GET A PICTURE OF CAPTAIN CARR'S GUEST!" ' "What are you do—?" Loraine began repeating il,' but her voice was drowned out and Ed himself was subtly forcing her away from the plane! "DON'T CROWD UP!" He was sliil roaring, gpod-nalurcdly. "LET THK LADY PASSENGER HAVE A CHANCE!" Other gentlemen—western gen- Uemcn—heard that, and began lo Kelp him in all good faith. Arniy men joined in. All r.t once chivalry and hospilalily were in full ploy here. Photographers wern squatting and squinting nnd clicking their boxes. Jimmy Carr was engulfed in Army men.
