mtU- H. A. MANGHAM EDITOR AND BUSINESS MANAGER Entered at the Postoffice at Rayville, Richland Parish, Louisiana as Second-Class Mail Matter, under Act of March 3, 1879. OFFICIAL JOURNAL: Police Jury, Parish of Richland; School Board, Parish of Richland; Tensas Basin Levee Board; Town of Rayville; Town of Maugham. WSm jgjr NATIONAL A MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL! This issue of The Beacon-News we submit to our readers and patrons as our regular Christmas Edition, and we are pleased to present for their approval a paper no less outstanding than those of recent former years when there was no war to hamper and hinder our effort. It is with genuine regret that we note a number of friends who patronized our former Christmas issues are no longer in business, most of whom are victims of business conditions brought about by the world struggle. However, it is gratifying that, notwithstanding this material and financial loss to us, we are still able to make a creditable showing such as to justify our pardonable pride. The Beacon-News appreciates the splendid patronage which has come to us, as reflected in the fine lot of advertisements. We especially direct the attention of our readers to all of them, and hope there are none to escape your attention. We trust the high class reading matter which the Christmas season suggests will also meet the approval of our friends. At a time when all the world is embroiled in a terrible war, and our own freedom and democratic way of life is being-challenged by the brutal and grasping agents of the dictator governments, our people are in no mood for a hilarious Christmas, but it is timely and appropriate to celebrate the birth of Christ with solemn and even" joyous hearts. Since all our hopes on the favorable outcome of the war are vested in the promises of Jesus Christ and in Him we place our faith it is well that we give proper and appreciative expression and celebration at the blessed time of the anniversary of His birth. Let this Christmas be one to inspire a fine spirit of love and unselfishness. We are wishing the best of everything for our friendly patrons at the Christmastime and throughout the New Year, so we may in all truth say to you MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR! INFORMATION THROUGH While many of our belligerent nations are flooding their people with propaganda leaflets to help build morale, America is sending our economic information in leaflet form so as to better prepare civilians to cope intelligently with wrartime restrictions which must, of necessity, be imposed. The Agricultural Extension Division of the Louisiana State University is using the leaflet system to augment its program of rural education and so all of Louisiana's 150,000 farm families should be receiving this literature. . Recently Louisiana distributed 150,000 copies of wartime leaflet No. 3 entitled, "Louisiana Farmers and the Meat Supply." Getting these into every community was a colossal task and might not have been so easily and readily achieved without the services of Victory Neighborhood Leaders. The leaflet deals with the reasons back of the "Share-the-Meat" program, and it outlines how the Louisiana farmer and farm home-maker can best participate. Farmers have a vital place in the meat program of the nation, for they are the ones who produce the meat. In the proposed goals for livestock production in 1943 the nation is being asked to produce 35.7 billion pounds of beef, pork, lamb and mutton, and in addition, farmers are requested to produce 28 per cent more chickens and 15 per cent more turkeys. These figures are impressive and reaching these goals will take careful planning, much hard work, and constant supervision. Meat contains 9 of the 13 elements that are essential to good health, and it is a rich source of the highest quality protein needed for building muscle. But that is not all. Iron and copper needed in the manufacture of rich, red blood are supplied by lean meat and especially by liver, and meat is also a good source of phosphorus. So this important food will have to be produced in larger amounts and an adequate supply must be saved by the family to provide sufficient amounts for good health and for the successful promotion of the national program. It is not just patriotic to produce and share the meat, but it is the smart and economic thing to do. Although it is now late in the season to greatly increase the supply of meat, farmers can feed late pigs so as to get the greatest growth and weight possible; they can feed out all hogs that can be spared, being sure to save enough sows and gilts for breeding purposes; they can properly can and cure all pork needed ; and they can save and fatten a good calf or beef animal to be canned or cured for home use. The share-the-meat leaflet will serve a great need as will many other wartime leaflets to be issued by the Extension Division. Keeping the people informed along their life's work, suggesting to the farm people the expedient and wise practices to follow will be the kind of "ammunition" on the home front that will spell defeat for our enemy nations, and will make us rise resplendent and well fit to carry on a post war agricultural program that will be a credit to our vision and foresight. SENATOR BYRD Senator Byrd of Virginia is said to be greatly encouraged by the strong support that is rallying to his efforts to reduce non-war government activities and cut down the rate of spending. Byrd has been a consistent foe of waste and extravagance in public government, and he shows far-sighted statesmanship in laying before Congress facts and figures that prove his claims that a billion dollars a year might be saved in non-war expenses. GETTING ALONG SOMEHOW Twenty years ago the production of automobiles was around 340,000, which just about equals the number of new cars for 1942 and we got along somehow. There are 1,300,- 000 miles of surfaced highways the U. S. Bureau of Roads classified only 662,000 miles or about 20 per cent, as "improved" in how. We'll have to continue to "get along somehow" under war conditions governing automobiles, rubber, gas and other things we are accustomed to.

ON THE HOME FRONT EMERGENCY GAS AVAILABLE TO PASSENGER CARS To prevent public hardship in emergencies such as sickness or other emergency errands, Texas OPA Director Mark McGee directed local war price and rationing boards to permit sales of gasoline to passenger car owners on OPA certificates. Form R-555. Thousands of the forms are being printed and will be made available by local boards to filling stations in their jurisdiction. CHRISTMAS TREES EXEMPTED FROM WAR REGULATION'S OPA, ODT and WPB announced jointly that Christmas trees will be exempted from wartime orders affecting the production and sale of goods and services. WPB urges that producers of trees maintain good forestry practice and avoid employment of manpower that would otherwise be engaged in essential war work. OPA announced that Christmas trees will be exempted from GMPR, but asked that prices be held at the level of last year. PASSENGER TIRE AND TUBE QUOTAS ENLARGED To meet needs in the first month of mileage rationing, under which practically all passenger cars become eligible for recapping services or replacement tires, OPA announced expanded passenger car tire and tube quotas for December. Quotas announced for the month include 41,973 Grade III new tires, 16,880 tubes and 39,893 recapping services for Texas; 15,122 Grade III new tires, 6,109 tubes and 14,704 recapping services for Oklahoma; and 11,067 Grade III new tires, 4,223 tubes and 10,275 recapping services for Louisiana. o State-wide Civil Service Examinations Will Held Louisiana's first state-wide Civil Service examinations for the purpose of establishing a list of people eligible to fill vacancies in every department of the state will be held on December 19th, Willard E. Parker, State Director of Personnel, announced recently. 'Although the Civil Service Law does not become completely effective until January 1," Mr. Parker said, "the department will give examinations for stenographers, typists, clerks, and messengers before that date in order to have a list of eligibles ready for use after the law goes into effect." Examinations will be held for the following positions: Stenographer Clerk I, $85-$125; Typist Clerk I, $80- $120; Clerk I. $75-$ 125; and Messenger, $60-$85. The tests will be conducted in Alexandria, Baton Rouge, Hammond, Lafayette, Lake Charles, Monroe, New Orleans, and Shreve-port. "It is expected that there will be a considerable number of vacancies in these classes of positions in the state service in the early months of 1943," Mr. Parker explained. "Persons who are successful in passing these examinations will be certified to department heads in the order in which they pass. Vacancies in other types of positions are expected also, so that my department will conduct competitive examinations for many different classes of positions in the state service within the next few months." Persons interested in applying for admission to these examinations should write to the State Department of Civil Service, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, for copies of the announcement and the application forms. Applications must be filed with the department by December 16th in order to be accepted. o Letter From Turner B. Branch, Jr. The editor has been favored by a letter from PFC Turner B. Branch, Jr., now stationed in the South Sea Islands, which we are pleased to publish, knowing that his friends will be pleased to hear from him, and about other Richland parish boys that are stationed on the same island with young Branch. The letter follows: Dear Mr. Mangham: I have been in the Army almost eleven months. Most of the time I have been in foreign service. It would be almost impossible to write all my friends back home. I would like to take this means of telling them hello, if you see fit to print it. I still receive the paper from home, and really look forward to it. I can get so much news from it that I can't get elsewhere. Sometimes it. is two or three months old before I receive it. I enjoy it very much. I want to thank you, Mr. Mangham, for the effort you have made to get the paper to me. I know that it has been hard to keep my address right. I have moved so many times. I am now in the South Sea Islands. There are several boys from Rayville on the island, A. T. Bradley, Delmar Cheek and a Lambert boy. "Sugar" Brown, of Mangham, is stationed close to me. I haven't been able to see him yet, but plan to soon. Thanking you again for your kindness, I will close. PFC TURNER B. BRANCH, JR. o BAPTIST V. SI. S. The W. M. S. met at the church on Monday, December 7th, for the monthly business meeting. Opening prayer was by Mrs. A. C. Holt, and Mrs. B. D. White led the devotional on Stewardship. The minutes were read and approved, treasurer's report given. The W. M. S. budget for 1943 was read and accepted, and plans and arrangements for next year discussed. A motion was carried to send $300 to the Children's Home for table linens. Announcement was made to remember the nominating committee in prayer. A motion was carried to order 30 copies of the 1943 W. M. S. year books for the society. A motion was carried to purchase the material for the 1943 year books. A motion was carried to ictu gear blessing bp 31 o tilt lUcbb $earon TO MAIZIE GORDON there had always been something so satisfying : about a New Year. The old year was gone and nothing could be done about it; but a new one meant new beginnings, fresh opportunities, new hope and courage to put into living. She and Donald had had only one year of happy married life, then his firm had failed, and persistent effort had, so far, failed to bring him another job. Still Maizie kept her faith. "Something's bound to come soon," she mused as she went about her morning tasks, "The New Year is almost here " "Hello, darling," called Donald from the doorway." Greet an uncrowned king a working man. Once ; more we eat." ,' - I bow to your majesty," laughed ; Maizie. "Shall I offer a kiss or kneel at your feet?" "I prefer the kiss; this is a democracy," grinned Donald. "Sit here and tell me all about it. i I knew something good was near. Another one of my hunches. Remember it was at a New Year's party we first met, and we were married on another New Year's day so I knew Lady Luck was on her way to us." "If that's the way it works, keep right on with your hunches, dear. Maybe that little house you've been wanting will just throw open its doors some day and invite us to take possession. How do you get these hunches you talk about?" "Just believe hard enough and you'll get what you want," giggled Maizie. I'm concentrating on that house right now." Winter and spring passed. Donald's work was going fine. "It's not such a hot job," he confided to Maizie, "but one can't be choosy these days; but the company's a going concern and there's always a chance of advancement. Gosh, it's hot in here." They were at dinner, and Maizie had turned on the electric fan. "You look all washed out girl, this is too hard on you. Better run down to your mother's till this hot weather is over." "Desert the ship? Never," quoted Maizie. "I'm all right. You're going to get that raise in salary and then we'll look for a house." "What!" retorted Donald, "another hunch? Don't we have to wait till the New Year?" "It's more than a hunch this time, Donald, and we'll wait till the New Year," replied Maizie soberly. It seemed to Donald, sitting in the chair at the end of the long corridor that the night would never end. Nurses slipped in and out of Maizie's room stopping occasionally to say: "Your wife is doing fine, Mr. Gordon," but always closing the door behind them with that air of finality that meant: "You are not to come in," when he wanted nothing so much but to be with Maizie. When he tried to question the doctors they were noncommittal. Twice he had gone out in the frosty air to walk, but he couldn't stay away. Then with the gray dawn a smiling nurse led him to Maizie's bedside. She smiled bravely at him, and gave him a reassuring kiss. "Poor boy, it's been hard for you, too. Now take a look at your son." She turned back the blanket and revealed a downy pink head snuggled close to her breast. "Do you know what day this is, Donald?" Donald stared reverently at his son. "No," he said, "I'm still too dazed to think. It seems years since last night." Maizie smiled. "It's New Year's day, and Lady Luck is with us. We're a proud family." "And I'm closing the deal for the house tomorrow," Donald added. New Year's Quiz 0 0 0 0 These questions were devised to test your alertness in the New Year.

Rapides Parish Farmers Growing" Alyce Clover University Station, Baton Rouge, La., Dec. 10. Rapides parish delta farmers now have a new cash seed and feed crop known as Alyce clover that may revolutionize their system of farming in the future, says Wm. L. Roark, County Agent. Mr. Roark says he has tested this new summer clover now for the past three years on most of the main types of soil in the parish. He finds the well drained mixed and heavy clay delta soils ideal for this clover. Several delta farmers are trying this new clover. One of the largest and most successful acreages of this clover for hay and seed this year is on George Wise's farm on the east side of Red River. Mr. Wise planted three hundred pounds of this clover seed on about thirty acres of his farm land this past July. The growth, stand and development is excellent, Mr. Roark said. He made a cutting on October 26th on this clover that was planted July 10th. The yield of cured hay was 4.8 tons per acre. This was produced in one hundred and ten days. The hay seems to be more relished by livestock than alfalfa, the agent explained. He says that Mr. Wise is enthusiastic over his results. Mr. Wise says it looks like he has at last found a cash feed and soil building crop that will be safe to plant after the spring overflow. A crop that has the possibility of changing the system on many delta farmers' acres. Mr. Roark says that this clover can follow spring oats, oats and Single-tary peas, sour clover or spring pasture clovers; such as White Dutch, Persian, Bur, Hop and other adapted clovers in late June or July. He says that there is a bale of this clover hay on display in his office. He invites the delta farmers interested to inspect this hay. He urges every delta farmer interested in good cheap feed to plan now to plant a good acreage of this clover next year. "Farm labor is a major problem on many local delta farms today," Mr. Roark points out. Crops like fall oats and Singletary peas, or spring oats, followed with Alyce Clover may solve some of our local farm labor problems in the future," he asserts. Cookery of Tender Cuts of Meat In cooperation with the Share-the-Meat Campaign, we are asked to use meat extenders, to use meat substitutes and to take an oath that we will not eat more than our share of meat. Are you eating more than your share? Since a large portion of the nation's meat supply is going to service men, it is necessary that we get the most out of our meat by proper cookery. There are two chief principles involved in cooking meat. They are dry heat and moist heat. Roasting, broiling, pan-broiling are examples of dry heat, which are appropriate for tender cuts of meat. For less tender cuts of meat, moist heat is recommended such as braising, simmering, and stewing. Tender cuts of meat are found in the part of the animal where the muscles are least used, although all the cuts of lamb and pork are usually tender. The cuts from the bone and rib of beef are also tender. The remainder of the beef is less tender and must be cooked accordingly. Because tender cuts are more juicy and contain less connective tissue, they require less cooking, but they may be made tough and dry by improper cooking. In the constant temperature method of roasting meat recommended by the U. S. Bureau of Home Economics, the meat is cooked at a constant temperature of 275 to 375 degrees Fahrenheit in a shallow, uncovered pan. The advantage of this method is that a full flavor is developed and moisture Is conserved so that the meat is juicy and well flavored. MEAT SHOULD ALWAYS BE COOKED AT A LOW TEMPERATURE. High temperatures cause excessive shrinkage (and consequent dry meat), uneven cooking, charren and shrunken fibers, and a tough product. Over-cooking also causes excessive shrinkage. For getting the most servings out of a given piece of meat, cook at a low temperature and only until done. The statement has been made that salt draws out juice3 and, therefore, it should be added after the meat is done. It is true that salt draws out juices, but in a roast, there Is very little exposed surface and consequently there is a very small loss. It also has been said that salt better flavors the meat if added at the beginning of the cooking period. Experiments have shown that salt penetrates one-half to one inch below the surface. In a large roast, therefore, it would not reach the inside of the roast. It has long been a practice to sear roasts before placing in the oven. It has been found that searing does not cause any more of the juices to be kept in the meat that if the meat is simply placed in the oven without it. For a tender product, minimum shrinkage, and juicy flavor, cook your meats at a LOW TEMPERATURE AND ONLY UNTIL DONE. Written by Mary Jo Hardwick, Chairman Junior Nutrition Committee. Next week: Cookery of Less Tender Cuts of Meat. .3;li,V"'jll:s;i:liiHil: PROCEEDINGS OF RICHLAND PARISH POLICE JURY Rayville, La.. December 1, 1942. The Richland Parish Police Jury met on this day in regular session convened with the following present and answering to roll call: President Edgar Duncan. Frank McEacharn, B. W. McKinnis, W. II. Linton, Jr., A. M. Robinson, D. F. Chapman, C. L, Ellington, Carl W. Earle and J. U. Doti-ciere, members; and R. Downes, Clerk. The Clerk stated that there was a correction made on the minutes of the last regular meeting as appearing in the Official Journal so that the appointment of Wesley Aaron as Range Rider would be made for the northeastern part of the Third Ward instead of the northwestern part of the Second Ward as it appeared in the minutes and paper. On motion made, seconded and passed the correction was confirmed. On motion made, seconded and passed when the vote was taken, the minutes of the last regular meeting were approved, as amended and appearing in the Official Journal. In line with the report or the Budget committee that was to be made at this meeting, the Clerk made a report on the financial condition of the General Fund and the Wards. Each Ward's condition was discussed and it was found that the board was trying to operate on a very conservative basis and that this was the reason that they were able to operate in as efficient manner as they had for the past year and that nearly all of the wards, even though they had been forced to have a good deal of repair work done on the equipment that would run the costs of operation up, were able to operate on a cash basis. Mr. J. U. Douciere made a motion that this being the time of the year that the new assessment roll would be filed that the following resolution be adopted authorizing the Clerk to make application to the State Bond and Tax Board for permission for the general fund to borrow not in excess of $20,000.00 during the year of 1943 for operating expenses; that the resolution be so worded that these funds will be borrowed as and provid ing the funds are needed to such an extent that the loan is necessary. This motion was seconded by Mr. B. W. McKinnis and when taken to a vote the following resolution was declared adopted, to-wit: RESOLUTION Whereas, in accordance with Act No. 6 of the Second Extraordinary Session of the Louisiana Legislature for the year of 1935, it becomes necessary that the Police Jury first secure the permission of the State Bond and Tax Board before incurring debt of any form, and Whereas, the forced collection of the 1941 taxes was postponed until October of 1942 it made it necessary that the Police Jury borrow funds with which to operate during the year of 1942 and pledging the 1942 taxes and revenues toward the repayment of these funds, thereby making it necessary that the Police Jury borrow funds with which to operate during 1943 until the collections of the 1942 taxes have been made in sufficient amount to take care of these loans and at the same time take care of the current operating expenses, now Therefore Be it Resolved by the Richland Parish Police Jury, in regular session convened on this the first day of December, 1942, with a full quorum present and voting for the adoption of this resolution that the Clerk of the Police Jury be and he is hereby authorized and directed to prepare and present to the State Bond and Tax Board an application for the General Fund for permission for the said General Fund to borrow funds in an amount not to exceed $20,000.00 to be used for the purpose of paying salaries and appropriations as they become due and payable until a sufficient amount of the 1942 taxes have been collected to pay the outstanding certificates, together with the current expenses and that said application shall state that these funds are to be borrowed only as the funds are required and shall be secured by the pledging of the 1943 taxes and revenues and that said loans when made shall be made by the issuance of cer tificates of indebtedness bearing inter est at a rate of not more than 4 per annum, and that same shall become due and payable on or before one year from date of issuance. Done, read and adopted on this 1st day of December, 1942. EDGAR DUNCAN, President, Richland Parish Police Jury. Mr. Carl W. Earle, Mr. J. U. Douciere and Mr. D. F. Chapman made their report as the Budget Committee that was ordered at the last regular meeting to make their recommendations to the Board at this meeting for the Official Budget for the General Fund ofr the year of 1943.
