. i CONGRESSMAN PAT HILLINGS (left) shown last week filing, his nominating papers with County Registrar of Voters, Benjamin S. Kite. Hillings is seeking re-election to a third term as representative from the Twenty-fifth District. Pat Hillings Files 6 Nomination Papers Congressman Pat Hillings of | the 23th district filed his nomination papers with the county registrar of voters last week to become a candidate for reelection. Hillings, who was first elected 'to Congress in 1950 at the age of 27, is seeking his third term in the house of representatives. During the past four years he has been an active member of the house judiciary committee and served on the judiciary sub-committee which investigated the department of justice during the Truman administration. His present position as chairman jf a judiciary sub-committee makes him the youngest member of the 83rd Congress to hold this rank. He is also one of the few Californians to hold a sub-committee chairmanship. Eggs a Best Buy at 33 Cents a Pound Grade A eggs are selling at the rute of about 33 cents per pound, says University of California Poultry Specialist L. D. Sanborn of Los Angeles county. Of course, eggs are sold by the dozen and not by the pound, continues Sanborn, but many consumers do not realize that a dozen eggs weighs more than a pound. A dozen extra large eggs weighs nearly two pounds, and small eggs 1.2 pounds. The housewife now pays about 52. cents a dozen for large Grade A eggs. Fifty-rtwo cents per dozen U;only 33 cents'per pound. This is an exceptional buy, since nine average-sized eggs are equal in protein value to about three- fourths pound of lean meat or two quarts of milk. Eggs are high- quality nutrition at low prices. Hillings is a member of t h e committee on house administration and the joint committee on immigration and national policy. After congressional adjournment last year he visited 26 countries to study immigration problems and to aid in establishing the Refugee Relief Act of 1953. He wrote the house report on this legislation and helped to steer its passage through the lower house of Congress. During the presidential campaign of 1952 he traveled some 45.000 miles serving as Richard Nixon's personal representative. Hillings has been referred to in Washington as "one of the ablest young men In the House of ^Representatives." Will Explain Aid to Aged Bill at Meeting Details of the drive to obtain signatures, on the petition for the initiative ''Aid to Needy Aged," will be explained tomorrow (Thursday) 'at a meeting to be held at 1:30 p.m. in the Woman's club, 3817 N. Baldwin Park boulevard, Baldwin Park. According to Rev. Wilmer Artis, more than three quarters of the 303,687 names necessary on the petition before the initiative can appear on the November ballot, have been secured. George McLain, chairman of the California Institute of Social Welfare, says that because of . the possibility of some names being disqualified, a | half million will be turned over for precincting ready for the first filing in the 58 counties of the state.

HI-3 Housewives Favor Eggs on Display Housewives favor eggs in dis-, play cases, separate from dairy j and other products, states Univer-' sity of California Farm Advisor C. A. Salverson of Los Angeles county. The U.S. Department of] Agriculture and Cornell University ran a study of egg sales.
