We the Women Someone has done it at lasU~ found a way to blame the poor harried housewife for today's high .cost of feeding the American family. The experl who finally figured out a waj to point the finger of shame at American women for the high cost of. eating is Edwin Wright, manager ! o t the Western Co-Op L«k,Assn. in Salt Roth Mllletl i I ~ Lake City, Utah. Mr. Wright claims women today don't know anything about buying or housekeeping. 'When women had no cars or movies to' set them gadding," says Mr. JV.right, "they made the most of the funds available and got more for what they spent.' Sure, we've got cars to gad about in—from store to store, trying to save a few cents on butter at one and a few cents on meat at another. Victim, Not Villian Did you ever stop to consider, 'Mr. Wright, that a big part of the food dollar today goes for milk and fresh vegetables, because the present day housewife is tip enough on her knowledge of proper diets to know she can't teed her family jusl dried beans and spaghetti and keep them healthy? And if she lives in a city apartment she can't keep a cow or have a garden like Grandma. She has to pay the farmer's price. So Just lay off the housewife. She's the victim, not the villain, in this little modern day drama. Mrs. Paul Byrum entertaining c. B. C. Club members. Saturday Cotillion Club members will have dance at the Legion Hut-beginning at 9 o'clock. Hosts and hostesses will be Mr. and Mrs. Elbert Huffman, Mr. and Mrs. Ben Harpole and Mr. and Mrs. Rilcy B.

LONDON (UP) _ The earth Is about 3.:i50,OCO,OOo years old, one eminent British -scientist believes. The estimate is in startling contrast to Archbishop Joint Usshcr's nth century guess of 5.D31 years but far below the Jukes theory in 1850 that the chalk erosion in England's county of Kent took 30,000,000,000 years alone. Prof. Arthur Holmes, regius professor of geology and mineralORy in the University of Edinburgh and a specialist in application of radioactivity to geology, made the "probable estmate" of 3,350,000,000 years in a resume of theories on the age of the earth in the scientific monthly. Endeavour. He based H on study of radioactivity In lead, taking as a common denominator the estimates of 25,000,000 years for lead Isotopes found in ores of the Tertiary pti- rlod. From Uranium 235 "We may assume," he wrote, that all of it "now present In the free from the lead isotope" and that all of it "now present in the common granite rockr of the continental crust has been generated from Uranium 235." By comparing Tertiary Isotopes with those in the granite rocks of Loday, Prof. Holmes arrives at an estimate of from 2,003,000,000 to 5,400.000.000 years as the age of the earth — presumably the time ?.l which it began to harden Irom the gaseous state. But he then aims for a closer estimate by using some "better established" dates of radioactive minerals compiled by Prof. A. o. Nle and oilier specialists in the field. Some of the dates, for example, set the age of uraninite found in Manitoba at 1,985,COO,000 years, which Prol. Holmes, said, "includes still recognizable conglomerates containing pebbles of pre-existing quart- zites which must, therefore be well over 2,000,000,000 years old. "Since the earth must be older still, this figure can be regarded as i. conservative ptlninmm for its age." Gets 200 Solutions Prof. Holmes admits that his equations have given him over 200 solutions to the age ot the earth but that, there Is a "marked concentration" of solutions nt about 3.300,000,000 to 3,400.000.000 years. His equations therefore, he snid. | 'favor the hope that nn estimate ol 3,350.000,000 JTars lor tile ajjo of tho earth li unlikely to be seriously wrong." Prof. Holmes also discusses estimates by Joliy in 1898 Ihal tho oceans, based on study of the time It takes dissolved sodium to accumulate, arc from 80.030.000 lo 00.000.01)0 years olrl. Using (he same method. Prof. Holmc.s points out that the correct, figure would be closer lo 260.CQO.tKX) years, but since sodium study is a "hopelessly variable" method, the age ol llic ureiins may be anything from 2,000.003,000 to 4,000,000.000 years old. "The mast that, can t>e salci," ho ! comcnts, "Is that its present rend- I ing (Koriuim accumulation) Is not Inconsistent with an oceanic age ot a few thousands of millions of years." the llltlc collcKCs. l-'or l.lmlt nn Classes Edcl feels a Until should be set for the nmnljrr of students In a class.
