You'll be surprised how little it costs to have a whiter house. Tell us the size--we'll tell you the cost! . Boomhower Hardware 150 Attend Conference at Monroe Dr. Earl Harper And Mrs. Collester Are Afternoon Speakers Nearly 150 members of the Parent Teachers associations of the North Central district had registered for the one day conference by noon Friday at the Monroe school. The afternoon session, which followed a luncheon at the Presbyterian church, was called to order by Mrs. H. L. Gilmore of Algona, second vice president. Speakers of the afternoon were Dr. Earl E. Harper, director of the school of fine arts, University of Iowa, and Mrs. C. C. Collester, state president of the. Iowa Parent Teacher Congress. Kindness--Courage Dr. James Marshall, Australian naturalist, addressed the group on "Things That Stand Like Stone." Quoting a poet of his country, Dr. Marshall said "in this world of froth and bubble, there are two things that stand like stone: kindness in another's trouble, courage in your own." C6urage and kindness are fundamental and vital things, according to Dr. Marshall who said that they constitute the real Christian "Christianity is not going to church and Christianity is not believing in a certain creed," he said. "We are so ready to fight for our opinions, mistaking those opinions for fact itself. Jesus Was Greatest "These are the glorious things of life! Jesus was the greatest character the world has ever seen. The two outstanding things in His life were courage and kindness." Dr. Marshall commented upon the many occasions in His life when Jesus used these virtues and pointed out that he was misunderstood by everyone. "It is most discouraging to be misunderstood," he said. "If you can't encourage a person, don't discourage him. "Abraham Lincoln of all the men who have lived in the last hundred years, revealed the true spirit of Christ No man could have been more defeated than Lincoln." Life Is Positive In concluding his talk, Dr. Marshall urged that lives should be positive and that interest should be in .doing good, so that being good will take care of itself. . Dr. Marshall also. talked about Australia, urging that more inter- CHIROPODIST IFoot Specialist) In Constant Attendance *IUs. U. S. P»L OtS.

"Australians look upon you as the nearest neighbor they have," he said. "They think more of you than you do of them. They know you better than you know them. They like you better than you like them. We don't like things we don't know and i£ nations got to know each other better, there would be a good chance of their liking each other. We form certain judgments and get certain slants on nations and after we get to know them, we decide that these decisions were most unjust. Full of Kansraroos "Australia is a country a little larger than yours which you probably think of as a little speck in the ocean full of kangaroos and Bushmen. Take the map of Australia, hold it before the mirror and turn it upside down and you'll see your country. It's most astonishing. 'Australia is the same size in land surface as the United States. Put desert between the AHeghanies and the Rockies and you'll have Australia. 13 Small Ships "Australia is indebted to you for its first white settlement. Thirteen shiploads of white . people were brought over to Australia from England. You see, we got a better start than you did, because we had 13 boats to your one, although it must have been a very large boat. Australians are not so keen about talking about any ancestors who came over on those 13 boats because those people were convicts. At the lime of the revolution, England couldn't send any more to America, so she sent them to Australia. "Another gift 'Australia got from the United States is its constitution. Please remember that you are one of the greatest nations of the earth and that your influence goes far from your boundaries. You have a destiny that must go beyond your borders.". Non-Voters Fined Dr. Marshall spoke of the capital city which is copied after an American city, the movies and the magazines, both of which come from the United States and both of which are censored rigidly. He described briefly, the .education system which is controlled by the state wiih teachers who are in the civil service. Contributions of Australia to the world have been the enfranchisement *of women and the Australian secret ballot. In Australia 98 per cent of the people vote. Those who do not vote are fined. The morning session was opened with invocation by the Rev. Roy Peyton, followed by music by a madrigal group from the high school. Mrs. \V. P. Butler, president of the Mason City council, welcomed the guests and Mrs. Gilmore responded. Mrs. A. E. Anderson of Fort Dodge, .president of the district, presided during the business session. The May basket contributions for extension work in Iowa and the matter of having record books for display only were discussed.

Auditorium First aid to the puzzled hostess is provided in "Foods of the Hour,'' the Wg new cooking school, which the Globe-Gazette is presenting lor four days, beginning Tuesday at the high school auditorium.. Whether it is for a dinner party or luncheon, a Sunday night snack, a buffet luncheon or picnic supper, you'll find suggestions for unusual, distinctive food among the scores of recipes which go to make up the programs of this brilliant demonstration of the fine art of cooking. ' '' Roast for Dinner ' A crown roast of pork is one of the dishes prepared and shown at the cooking school which would add distinction to any meal. A Frenched leg of lamb is another good choice for a special occasion, hrfact, any roast is suitable as the piece de resistance of a~dinner party and one of the advantages it possesses, Miss Ann Kingsley points out, is that it requires little attention. "Just put it in the oven in the right way, see that the temperature is right and then forget about it until the cooking time is over," this cooking expert says. Many Garnish Ideas From Miss Kingsley's assistant, Miss Dorothy Heald, you can get many a suggestion for garnishing the roast as well as for accompanying vegetables or fruit to give it that festive appearance befitting its importance. If you go in for buffet serving,-and what more delightful way is there for entertaining a large num- ..ber of guests easily and informally?---you'll want to duplicate some of the attractive buffet platter arrangements you'll see at the cooking school. Little Fried Pies Fried appetizers,--which are really little fried pies,--are an idea you can adapt to your needs. This is only one of many pastry recipes to be demonstrated. Among the desserts which will win you a reputation as a good cook is a Dixie pecan pie, which is in a class by itself. Miss Kingsley's instruction in pie making is one of the features of "Foods of the Hour." She shows you how to make a cream pie, which is a basic recipe from which a variety of pies, such as chocolate, banana, caramel, etc., may be made. Plenty of Cakes, Too Cakes, too, will interest the hostess. There's a hurry-up cake,-all ingredients put together and mixed--which is in two layers and good enough for company. If you have unexpected guests, it won't take you long to "whip up" a cake for them, following this recipe.
