Be sure to cut the string, holding the legs ogether, about an hour before he bird is ready. Or if the legs are held together by a band of skin at the tail just snip the skin to release the legs.

A THOUGHT TO REMEMBER By Airs. Buddy Howard Our Christmas prayers center on the celebration of the birth of Christ. As we express affection to Him, we should realize we need His guidance more than ever. At long la*t, let us realize we need a united intelligence to accept and follow His guidance in the things we think. Let us realize no spot on earth can enjoy Peach on Earth as long as men fail to preserve peace in their minds and hearts. Let us realize that only with faith and hope can we unite as God's children; let us realize faith and hope will do away with the fears that divide us. At long last, let us realize hatred, fanaticism and extremism can terminate only in the desolation of the mind, body and spirit. Let us realize man's morality, decency and dignity must be genuine for there is no substitute. At long last, let us realize these teachings come to us long before the birth of the Prince of Peace. Above all, let us realize we are only temporary citizens of our time, but have permanent souls that last through eternity. Don't you agree we should realize these things PROM New Year TO Christmas; not merely PROM Christmas TO New Year? . . . MRS. BUDDY HOWARD, HOWARD FUNERAL HOME.
