WILLING TO LEARN DALLAS, (/P)—The girl's shorthand was a bit under par but she thought of a way to even matters. A classified ad in a Dallas newspaper said: "Inexperienced lady stenographer, 18 years of age, desires position with stuttering man who takes a long time to tell it." 000 and 35,000 women relief clients are now employed each month on Texas Relief commission work projects, it has been announced by Adam R. Johnson, stale relief director. "We believe our projects for women, in addition to keeping them from the despair of idleness, provide the more lasting benefit of permanently equipping these women to meet responsibilities in the home and to accept industrial opportunities as they develop," Mr. Johnson said. These projects employ only those people actually on relief rolls. Legally the Texas Relief commission can not expend its relief money for these needy people no matter how worthy they may be, if they are NOT relief clients. A great deal of misapprehension exists on this point, and the commission is the recipient daily of many letters from women not on relief rolls but who are in the need of employment, urging their claims and those of their neighbors to be allowed to work in sewing rooms, or to have one established in their community. Canneries Employed 7,000. "We have gone at this problem of employing our relief women with the objective of encouraging projects which will be of a definite constructive value to the clients and to their families," said Mrs. M. K. Taylor, head of the women's work division of the engineering- department. "Our community canneries, for instance, not only have afforded work relief, but have served to teach practical methods of canning and to impress the value of food conservation. At its height, this program employed 6,000 to 7,000 women monthly," Mrs. Taylor said. The sewing room projects are exceedingly valuable. Many women clients have been taught to sew and they have taken this knowledge home with them and put it to use in making garments for their own families. There are now 264 sewing rooms in 133 counties where from 4,000 to 6,000 women are employed every month. Furnish School Lunches. Approximately 1,200 women are receiving work relief through the school lunch program wherein the Texas Relief commission cooperates with schools interested in serving hot lunches to children of relief families by furnishing cost of such lunches and such additional help from relief rolls as may be required to cook, serve, and wash dishes for the relief children. Library projects, wherein the commission assists county, school or city libraries which cannot operate for lack of funds, is furnishing employment to an increasingly large number of relief women. In some counties this project has been extended to include a: county-wide rural library program, serving the entire rural population of the county. The "visiting housekeeper" or dietetics project provides for selection of women from relief rolls ,who, under supervision of a trained home economist, visit homes of relief clients and demonstrate best methods of cooking low cost foods, balanced menus, methods of laundering, efficient ways of doing general housework. Learn Wise Spending. ."Practical work in sewing and in cooking instruction are calculated to enable the homemaker to make her purchasing dollar stretch as far as possible and thus improve the ily," Mrs. Taylor declared. "Records of 'visiting housekeeper' projects disclose increase in weight and improvement in health of families so instructed." Another constructive piece of work is done through the commission's nursing projects. These are inaugurated only after careful investigation in counties having efficient health officers who are willing to supervise the commission's workers. These women do bedside nursing for relief clients only, some counties using as many as 12 persons daily to help where there is sickness in the home of relief families who would be unable to pay for such services. Handicraft projects are being fostered in many counties with such articles as rugs, door mats, and simple things of service in the home being manufactured. Furniture is repaired and clients are taught in this way to keep their homes more neatly arranged and in better order. GREAT CROWD (Continued from cage 1.) and night club revue will perform at the Southern.

They take one or two tablets the first night and repeat the third or fifth night if needed. How do Calotabs help Nature throw off a cold? First, Calotabs are one of the most thorough and de- nendable of all intestinal eliminants, thus cleansing the intestinal tract of the germ-laden mucus and toxines. Second, Calotabs are diuretic to the kidneys, promoting the elimination of cold poisons from the blood. Thus Calotabs serve the double purpose of a purgative and diuretic, both of which are needed in the treatment ° Calotabs are quite economical: only twenty-five cents for the family package, ten cents for the trial package. (Adv.) N n Good home lighting means having the correct wattage of lamp bulbs- and the correct choice of fixtures and portable lamps. A little care, a small expenditure now, may mean normal eyes for your family. These are the most important lighting rules: 1. Use lamp bulbs of the correct wattage ... at least 40-watt Mazda lamps for 3 socket lamps, 60- watt for 2 socket lamps, 100-watt for single socket lamps. 2. Have all lamp bulbs shaded. For portables, a shade light in color, wide in spread- an open at the top is most desirable. 3. Never read in glaring light, or in your own shadow. 4. Always use lamp bulbs of reputable make, Inferior ones burn out and blacken quickly. Southwestern PUBLIC SERVICE
