We hiay look forward to silk from Americari-grown silkworms, but the outlook for getting euough real silk from abroad this year is not too good; according to rep arts from Washington j n McCall's for February: "Textile /experts believe that eventually, irany clothings srnms can be gtued or resin-bonded so that you "can Iron a dress-together instead of seming it. Army experiments which resulted in non-stitched seams for tents and tarpaulins are continuing in the hope that a flex* ible and washable process for putting uniforms together without thread and heedle can be found. Meantime, manufacturers working with some of the new plasticized fabrics are trying out the same idea. "The basic textile job right now, however, is to get back to us the good fabrics we enjoyed before the war. Thread counts aiicl dyes are getting better and you should no- |tice a steady improvement in bath quality and supply throughout the a-^ummer months. ''Before this year is over you'll be able to buy the wherewithal to give 'clothes and other fabrics water repellant treatments at home. "Silk from homegrown worms is finally possible, now that a mechanical unreeling machine has been developed to unwind cocoons in a hurry. American plantings of mulberry trees are going forward "in Texas, and the feeding of silkworms eventually could become a profitable sideline for small farmers and retired oldsters in several areas. Feeding a silkworm is not an easy job, however. The average one demands fresh leaves four times a day and dies from colic if 'ts food is not crisply fresh. "Meantime, your chance of finding real silk on the market this year is not too good. There will be me, but it will take years to rehabilitate the oriental silk industry, which was completely sidetracked during the war. "Self-service is spreading to stores handling dry goods.

But Mrs. Chester Bennett, wife oi the American Hero of Hong Kong, hacf no eye for its beauty when she toiled up to the great, iron sates on the afternoon of Oct. 2!). 1943, to brint; her imprisoned husband food and. clothing. She bad no way of knowing he had been executed a few hours before with 32 olhnr men accused of "activity jvrrnnst. the Japanese imperial government." Refusing to accept the food, Japanese guards grinned through the gates and told her: "Suttow—fce- headed." ' I didn't believe them," she Mid. "because they'd told me Uint several times before to frighten mf." Finally, three weeks later, Jrtpa- IK •-- officials sent Bennett's clothing to her father. Only then did she believe her husband was dead. The blow fell heavily. There had been no farewell meeting. She hadn't seen her husband {or five months—not since the day four Japanese gendarmes seized him in their home at breakfast. On Jan. 14 she bore Chester Bennett the child he had longed to live to see. "She's a girl—but the spitting linage of Chester," said Elsa Bennett. Two months later Marcus Da Silva, the Portuguese attorney who had assisted her husband in obtaining Japanese shipping information for British secret agents, sent a messenger to help her escape to the nearby Portuguese colony of Macao, his own place of refuge. "I sent word back that I couldn't leave with a baby of that age," she said.

But in some cases the cows' preference amounts to a prejudice, says G. G. Gibson, dairy husbandman for the A. and M. college extension service. This is especially noticeable in the decided preference of cows for warm water dur- '<ii\y cold weather. Milking cows require a lot of water to keep production at top level. But in cold weather they won't drink more than enough to take the edge off their thirst if the water is at low temperature, Gibson says. The result in that' the : rigid of milk falls off. And when the volume of production drops it hits the dairyman's profits without rediu.'".g ha overhead costs.

My new home in Mississippi is 1,700 miles from New York. My husband is coming up to fetch me. I haven't seen him for nearly 18 months, and he has never seen his year-old daughter. One thing I should have mentioned before this' is how much comfort I get from vespers, given every night by the ship's chaplain. Friday, Feb. 1 Because I know I am within 1,000 miles of the U. S,, my morale certainly is going up fast. The thought of seeing my husband and showing him, our daughter . • . what will be his reactions to her, and hers to him? Thank goodness, the sea is a little calmer. We are making better pounds of water for each pound of ; poljcc talked to me tncy convinced milk produced. I As there are some weeks of winter ahead, dairymen may find it desirable to stop this leak in their revenue. They may' solve the water temperature problem by using some sort of heating device. Also, furnishing freshly pumped water is a Step in ihat direction because water fresh from the well often is less chilly than water standing in troughs or ponds. A homemade tank heater fixed up with the aid of a metal oil barrel would do the job. There are other simple methods which an ingenious farmer can rig up to keep water flowing to the cows at the :empsratuve they prefer. The temperature of water provided for dairy cows during winter is vorv important in milk production, Gibson says. In the mystery of making milk from the things they consume^ cows drink more water than their normal thirst demands. Accordingly, taking precaution to see that the milkers drink the amount of water they need will pay off with more milk in the bucket. They were hardly worth the journey. I ended up the evening convinced as I through life that own money is the dullest of pastimes. Most of the gambling spots arc Police Patrolman Bill Owens of San Angelo is just too efficient.
