WILL FEATURE COOKING TALKS All Women Invited To School That ' Opens Soon "Beauty is the ear-mark that God gives to virtue" is a statement to be found in the literature sent out by Beulah Mackey Yates, lecturer and noted cooking school leader, who will conduct the coming Kitchen Chautauqua in this city starting Sept. 9. The quoted statement above is written in connection with many other things of interest to housewives who are interested in better and' more artful cooking. Further on can be found: "We need not power nor splendor; wide hall or lordly .dome; good cooking,-if modern and tender, is the happiness cornerstone of home." All through, the sessions of the Kitchen Chautauqua emphasis is pinned upon simplicity, yet the beautiful; completeness, but every short cut to save time, worry and vexation; good style and fashion, because the old apple pie can be giVeri many new dresses; romantic, in that it offers many a thrilling discovery and many a satisfaction of seeing that,the Job-done is far beyond the ordinary, 'filled with hints on modern ideas about homemaking and house-keeping, yet each one fully explained, in a language that is easy to listen to and to fully understand. Neighborly in its very fashion, and friendly in its every nature. Mrs. Yates claims that "friendly talking is the golden chain that holds the human family closely together," most particularly that part of humanity who manages the home —the housewife. So, in her own words, "The sessions of the coming cooking school will be. spirited with neighborliness aplenty, friendliness that will be thoroughly enjoyed by all, and usefulness, in that every problem of the- home-life- happy-kitchen experiences will be discussed with a frankness, and post graduate authority that all who visit the school may profit well. The oft repeated fact that this cooking. school is scot-free to every lousewife in this city and surround- ng cpmmunities, cannot be stressed too much. It is free. You and everyone are invited, and you are doubly welcome. Be sure to attend every session, > —•?*•-—; Students Reserve Rooms at College CANYON, Aug. 31.—Miss Vondell Kees and Miss Willie Isbel of Pampa have reserved rooms in Cousins , .West .Texas State Teachers college dormitory for girls.

Parent Study Is Important Part Of P-TA Course BY MRS. J. M. GRAIN, Claude, State Publicity Director Texas Congress of Parents and Teachers. The Texas Congress of Parents and Teachers ranked second in number of study groups in parent education reporting for 1934 and 1935. According to Mrs. J. H. Emmert, Wichita Falls, state chairman of parent education for the Texas branch, membership in the study groups of the Texas congress was 8,785. California led with 831 groups, Texas second with 585, Nebraska third with 502. These 8,785 members of study groups, constituting approximately 10 per cent of the members of the Texas congress, were conscious of the need for a better educated parenthood. These figures proclaim the untiring effort of study group leaders and district and local parent education chairmen, that thousands of parents realize that an educated person is not necessarily an educated parent, and that parent- teacher associations strive for the assurance of successful parenthood. For the past decade or two parents have been prone to be overzealous in their desire to give their children every opportunity to develop individuality and personality. This fault may be attributed to., the fact that parents were too closejy disciplined in their childhpod. HPwever, there is a grave danger that we may be developing a chil<| without a sense of responsibility, undisciplined and unrestrained, that has developed neither personality nor individuality nor strength of character. A noted educator said recently that we were fast educat» ing a childhood that knew weJJ but one letter in the alphabet—the letter "I". We can not blame this "capital-!* tas" on the school life of the child, for schools have a tendency to make the child group conscipus. There? fore, for the correction pf this fault we must looJs; to the old reliable bulwark—the home. Our present- day mode of living has taken away some of the sturdjness of the honje, but a; little time and thought, the parents can restore it lously.
