MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 17 1936 ELEVEN IETY Doctor Praises Fairy Tales to Read to Child By GAUKV C. MYEKS, I'M. I). Child Training Authority Often I have, .in this column, heartily recommended fairy talcs for young children. As you know, many educators arc trying to rob the little child of such delights and means of wholesome, -as I see it, education. So I am happy when I come across some writer who agrees v/ith me. In that illuminating volume. "What Is a Book?" edited by Dale Warren, John Livingston Lowes says: "For romances, and story oC giants, and genii, read with a child's quick and plastic imagination, are stepping stones to later deeper, if no more enduring, loves. 'I read through all gilt-cover little books that could be had at that time.' wrote Coleridge to Tom Poole in those precious fragments of an autobiography, 'and likewise all the uncovered talcs of Tom Hickathrift, Jack the Giant Killer and the like. And I used to lie by the wall, and mope; ind my spirits used to come upon me suddenly and in a flood--^ and then I was accustomed to run" up and down the churchyard, and act over again all I had been reading on the docks, the nettles, and the rank grass. At six years of age . . . I found the "Arabian Nights' Entertainments" . . . Enjoyed Reading. " 'And I distinctly recollect the anxious and fearful eagerness with Â·which I used to watch the window where the book lay, and when the sun came upon it, I would seize it. carry it by the wall, and bask, and read. . . . . My whole being was, with eyes closed to every object of present sense, to crumple up myself in a sunny corner, and read, read, read'". Then Lowes continues: "I know there are those to whom all this is EXPERT . . . . Watch and Jewelry Repairing Prompr Service -- Low Prices All Work Guaranteed. M U R R A Y JEWELRY CO. Foresters' Bldg. eoooossesosooooeeoooaosoc heresy, and who would feed children pedagogically dissected food. There have always been such earnest and misguided souls. Charles Lamb has u gloriously volcanic outburst, in a letter to Coleridge, about Mrs. Barbauld's edifying books Cor children. Lctier From Lamb. " 'I am glad (he writes) the snuff and Pi-pos's books please. "Goody Two Shoes" is almost out of print- Mrs. Barbauld's snuff has banished all the old classics of the nursery. . , . Knowledge insignificant and vapid as Mrs. B.'s books convey, it seems, must come to a child in the shape of knowledge, and his empty noodle must be turned with conceit of his own powers when he has learned that a horse is an animal, and Billy is better than a horse, and such like, instead of that beautiful interest in wild tales which made the child a man. while all the time he suspected himself to be no bigger than a child . . . Is there no possibility of averting this sore evil? Think what you would have been now. if instead of being fed with Tales and Old Wives' fables in childhood, you had been crammed with geography and natural history!' " I wonder what Lamb would-write to Coleridge on this subject today? H E L P I N G T H E H O M E M A K E R By MJtS. MAUV MORTON Menu Hint. Lamb Pot Roast Hot Baking Powder Biscuit Brown Marble Potato Balls Canned Green Beans Currant Jelly Cabbage Salad Graham Fruit Cookies Tea or Coffee The lamb pot roast is a very economical dish. The recipe came from a French Negro cook down south, says a correspondent. She suggests adding paper frills to the ribs of meat to add to their appearance. After the meat is removed from the dish, the previously cooked potato balls may be put in and browned. There should be plenty of gravy to serve over the biscuits. Today's Recipes Lamb Pot Roast--Use breast of lamb and cut libs so that all the meat is left on every one. Put the meatless ones into tomorrow's soup pot. Brown ribs and forelegs in their own fat. Simmer an hour or longer (two hours may be required if lamb is a bit old) until meat is tender and gravy is rich and brown. Add an onion and two bay leaves, also a tiny bit of mace, while simmering. And salt and pepper to taste. Graham Fruit Cookies--One and 55 International Trucks Taken Out of City Monday M. C. LAWSON' one-half cups brown sugar, one-half cup shortening, thicc tablespoons molasses, one egg, one t;np chopped raisins, one cup sour m i l k , one teaspoon soda, dissolved in milk: one- teaspoon each cloves, cinnamon: one- half teaspoon salt, two and one-half cups graham flour. Mix in order given, drop from spoon on to baking sheet and bake in moderate oven. This makes 4.0 cookies of nice size, which will keep moist and are ideal for lunches. Ijjiinb Not Seasonal Although it is true that lamb come on to the market in great quantities during the spring, it is not true that lamb is a season food like cherries or cranberries. It is a popular fallacy that lamb of high quality can only be obtained in the spring. Perhaps it is because the term "spring lamb" has been attached to Jamb and it is assumed that when spring is gone, lamb is out of the market until the vernal season rolls round once more. With the development of better breeding and marketing facilities, lamb is available at all seasons of the year. During Februaiy, March and April, Colorado and Nebraska will be marketing the nation's supply of lamb. As the season advances other sections of the country will send their lambs to market. It is of interest to note that S5 per cent of all lamb is produced in the western section of the United States and about 85 per cent is eaten in the eastern section. The preference of the American people for lamb instead of mutton Dealers Defy Road and Weather Conditions. Implement dealers of North Iowa and .southern Minnesota drove 55 new International motor trucks out of Mason City Monday afternoon in defiance of weather and road conditions. This wholesale exodus of trucks, one of the largest in the history of the local branch of the International Harvester company, was staged under the supervision of M. C. Lawson, manager, as an expression of the growing confidence in the return of better economic conditions. A large share of the trucks, which staged a parade through the business section of the city at 11 o'clock Monday morning, have already been sold to users, it was announced by the dealers. Officials Give Talks. The dealers, who with the members of their organizations numbered almost 100, attended a lunch at the Hotel Hanford at noon and heard talks by Chicago officials of 4. the International Harvester company in the afternoon before beginning their trek homeward. Dealers were here from as far east as Cresco, west to Esthcrville and north into the southern tier of counties in Minnesota. James Rost, Lakcfield, Minn., 65 years of age, brought with him two men and two shovels with which to cope with possible drifts. Expects Big Gains. The- dealers were addressed by C. E. Stevens, Chicago, assistant manager of the motor trucks department of the company, who stated the International Harvester company was expecting for 1936 at least as much of a gain in business over 1935 as that year was over 1934. The truck business, particularly, showed a 'big gain in 1935, he said. T. V. Hale. Chicago, district manager for the northwest district, and F. J. Johnson, Chicago, district manager for the dairy equipment line, were also speakers. Mr. Lawson presided at the meeting. The trucks which left the city Monday have been shipped into Mason City the past three weeks in the face of adverse road conditions, Mr. Lawson staled. Yes, round and round the world -- Europe, South America, the Orient. Fascinating! Thrilling! in these Smart 4EW 1936 With Built-in Aerial Tuning System Â· Call us for a Free Home Demonstration.

IS has been the governing factor of marketing at an early age. According to government figures approximately 85 per cent of all sheep are sold as lamb, about 10 per cent as yearlings, and only about 5 per cent as mutton. This is the consumers' best answer to the question of how to tell lamb from mutton. Chances are 95 to 5 she will get lamb intsead of mutton.
