Make individual pumpkin tarts by your own good recipe. Cut the turkey shape from a slice of pasteurized process American cheese. Make a paper pattern first to fit your tarts. Lay the turkey pattern on a cheese slice and cut around it with a knife. Quite easy to do, tremendously effective in appearance, and as wonderfully good eating M cheese and pastry always is. . What Our geadei-A Courteous, Helpful Police Officer (Donald Dooling) Praised By, PTA Group For Assistance On Rainy Night Oct. 26, 1949. the south end of the building to Editor Naugatuck Daily News, Naugatuck/ Conn. Dear Sir: A display of courtesy and help- beyond the call of regular duty on the part of one of the local police force was so well received by a group of citizens that I thought that I would pass it along. On Tuesday evening, 10-25-19. There was a joint m«ctln«- tjf a group of representatives of the aev- cr&l PTA organizations of Naugatuck. It was hold in the library of the high school. The meeting broke: up about 0 p. m, and thn Ki'fiuji, moully women, came out into a dark and wet night. There being no 1 , outside lighting turned on at the time, it was rather difficult dcHcendjng the stairs at the, sidewalk. I should say that it would have been had not the policeman on duty in that area been so helpful. He had passed by anc hearing people coming out of the building he came back. Producing a flashlight he assisted each of thi. t-'rouip down the stairs nnd to the several cars that were waiting. The group "was loud in Its praise of this courteous officer who wat, so helpful.

SUGENHEIMER'S COATS • SECOND FLOOR By T. R. HAMMER Librarian, American Numismatic i Association Death of Frank H. Stewart, prom- ncnt Philadelphia business man, recently recalled His unsuccessful campaign 40 years ago to have some governmental unit preserve the first mint. The mint had stood <on the east side of Seventh near Arch since 1792, and it was the first public building authorized by Congress. When Stewart acquired the site for business structure, he tried to persuade the federal government to preserve at least some of the building or old mint equipment. Unable to get federal agencies to act, he tried vainly to have Pennsylvania, or the city of Philadelphia, do so. In razing the plain brick building, Stewart found old dies and coins, many of them unique. Some had been struck as patterns or trial pieces. Fortunatey Stewart was a coin collector and something of an historian, and saved many of -the items. Some now rest in museums. The people held the first mint highly — almost reverently. This dates to colonial times, when the people resented the fact that England declined to build a mint over here or provide a monetary system. The first mint was used until 1829. when the new one was erected, with modern machinery. Always the parent mint has been in Philadelphia. Congress provided"" that it should be "at the seat of government," which then was Philadelphia. Several branch mints subsequently were built, and today two are operated—in San Francisco and in Denver, On 'Honeymoon' BACK in the U. S. for the first tinu since they were married in Rome, screen stars Tyrone Power and hii wife, Linda Christian, arrive at La Guardia Field, New York, trom Paris lor an "American honey, moon."
