Tomato Juice Cocktail or Tomato Soup Lamb Pot Pie Boiled Potatoes Cabbage, Carrot, Apple Salad Gelatin With Whipped Cream Coffee Lamb pot pie with dumplings i always a treat, but doubly so i, cold weather.

If you are hard of hearing, have the electrician connect a very small light bulb above the door, inside. When the bell is pushed the light flashes. Such an arrangement costs about $1.75, and is worth many times t h a t in safety and convenience. When alone at. nipht, it is a protection to be able to know someone is at the door. Delirious T)isli. Veal baked in sour cream makes a delicious meat dish. The veal is first browned in hot lard, then the sour cream is added and the meat baked in a moderate oven (350 degrees F.) u n l i l done. --o-- DR. GARRY C. MYERS, PH. D. Child Psychologist. Thanks to measures of relief, some families of the United States have enjoyed better living conditions than tiiey had ever known before. But tor a larger number of other families long accustomed to marginal, fair, comfortable standards of living before they were crushed by the depression, many of them too self- depcndenl in spirit to accept relief, or to accept it as early as they should, the physical, mental and emotiona hardships have been almost or entirely unbearable. And not- nea ly. all have recovered, .from the strain; some never will, alas Those'of us who were more fortu nate will never know the heartaches which thousands upon thousands of parents and their- children have suffered on account o the depression. N'cw Human Problems, Now that we are m a r c h i n g toward .prosperity, already in the grasp of many persons, some new human problems are arising. Inevitably our country is returning (o the sordid money-yardstick for measuring success. During the depths of the depression thousands of very able person gained the satisfaction, previously denied, of admitting without apology, even with pride, their interest and engagement in walks o life that never could bring large returns financially. They couk ay proudly to themselves, "Life does not consist of the abundance of things which we possess." One could have very little income and keep his social caste; nearly everybody was poor. Some Will Suffer. But now, with so many on thi up-grade, others who once hac average or above-average incomes but were crushed by the depression and still are unable to find normal employment or to earn an income at all commensurate with what they feel they should, are.go ng to suffer, they and their chil dren, more keenly, because of the inevitable contrast. Some f a t h e r will condemn themselves, somi will be condemned by their wives even their children, for not mak ing good when others do! A fe\\ will pity themselves and curse th world for treating them so cruelly For very mnny, indeed, the adjust ment will be very difficult,, if i can be made at all. On the othe hand, many youths with job available will be saved from th human scrap heap. Then those who will prospc may find themselves leading more excited life, dissipating seeking tomnorary r a t h e r than th more enduring pleasures. We en expect more drunkenness, rn o r divorce. Church attendance prob ably will decrease as prosper!! increases. --n-- PA«""V D upils Give Program for Association flcKmley P. T. A. Conducts Observance of 40th Birthday.
