Although this club is in ah oil field, ana few of the 18 members have their own meat animals, they found that purchasing and conning the meat made a substantial saving in their family food bills. In recent weeks 14 beeves have been killed and canned. Some meat frxto each beef was used fresh, but a ('report shows that 429 quarts of roasts, 112 quarts of plain steak, 92 qilarts of Swiss steak, 333 quarts of phifi, 99 quarts of soup, 44 quarts Of Hamburger, 11 pints of loaf meat, 5'pints of liver paste, and a pint of gaulash ..were canned. , •Members have also canned 104 pints of boned chicken, 15 pints of ground chicken, 64 pints of chicken tamales, 55 pints of chicken soup, and 24 pounds of refined chicken fat. They report 1,881 pounds of cured pork products also to complete their meat supplies. Harrison Looks With Skepticism On Perkins Plea 1 WASHINGTON, Feb. I. Chairman Harrison of the senate finance committee said today "there Is not a chance in the world" for congress to pass the administration's social security bill by mid-February as Secretary Perkins has urged. .Harrison predicted there would be changes in the program, noting that there was "a great diversity of opinion" among members of his committee. But he said that on the whole the measure would be approved. Secretary Perkins and other administration officials have urged congressional leaders to speed action on the bill so that it can be written on the statute books in time for subsequent action by the many state legislatures now meeting. Miss Perkins set mid-February as the goal. Harrison said today, however, that his committee hearings would last at least two weeks more. As the end of the second week of hearings approached today, the committee had still to hear further administration experts. After they have finished scores of o'utsiders will be heard.

(IP)—The state highway commission has given written notice to the many interested residences of South Texas that it Intends to begin construction work this year . on the Kenedy county section of 'the hug-the-coast highway. John Wood, chairman of the commission, and W. R. Ely, member, ordered an appropriation of at least $75,000 for grading and drainage structures. Wood said the road might not be completed for several years as it would be "given no preference over other .projects of equal importance "but that' we are determined to make a start'on 'it." He said that if the large ranchers who own nearly all'the land in Kenedy county should refeuse to provide the right of way, the -commission would ask the legislature to empower it to obtain the right of way by condemnation. The Kenedy county road has been the subject of much controversy in recent years and has become an issue in political campaigns. Supporters of the project have accused the large ranchers of Kenedy county of blocking it because they did not want a road running through cheir pastures. "The people of my district have been fighting for .this for 14 years," Senator Jim Neal remarkd after the commission acted. » — Couple Wed at Home of Groom The malTiage of Miss Dora Mae Swarthout and Albert Nichols was solemnized recently at the home of the groom, 604 S.

Another number will' be a debate on the subject, Resolved: That Girls Sh.pu];d Stop BUREAU SUGGESTIONS SHOW HOW TO CUT DOWN BILLS Most housekeepers prick up their ears over ways of cutting down the meat bill. And right now, more than usual, says the bureau of home economics of the U. 8. Department of Agriculture, there is point to such discussion. Because of the drought last summer and for other reasons, there is more very lean meat in many markets and there are fewer well- marbled steaks and roasts with a thick rim of fat. The sjipply of meat for the country as a whole is also smaller than it h(as been for some years past This calls for more skill in cooking meat and in devising good combinations with other foods. Accordingly, the bureau has brought together its best ideas for using the cheaper meats, and here are some of them: Rules for Cooking Meat. Cook meat slowly, using moderate temperature most of the time. Meat is a protein food and, like white of egg, Is toughened by prolonged heating at high temperature. To make meat savory, brown it to develop the characteristic rich flavor, but cook it at moderate temperature the'rest of the time. Whether to roast, broil, or braise a piece of meat depends on the tenderness of the cut and on how much fat there is. There are tender cuts and cuts less tender. The tender cuts are beef roasts and steaks from th|e rib and the loin, all cuts of lamb and pork, and generally all cuts of veal. The less tender cuts are beef chuck, brisket, plate, rump, round, and flank. When meat has plenty of fat, cook according to the cut. Roast or broil the tender cuts in uncovered pans, without added water. Tough meat requires long, slow cooking with moisture; so make the less tender cuts into pot roast, stew, or some other braised dish. Or, grind less tender meat and cook it like tender meat. When meat has very little fat, it is usually best to modify the rules of cookuig meat according to the cut. To veal and to very lean beef, lamb, or pork, whethpr tender or not, add fat for richness and good flavor, and cook as ordered for steaks ,and chops, oven-braised meat, pot roast, • and stews. For Tougher Cuts. • Braising and pot-roasting, by the way, are merely variations of the same principle of meat cookery. They are two of the very best ways of making lean, tough meat tender. One of the important "do's" to a successful .pot roast or braised dish is first to season the meat with salt and pepper and sprinkle it generously with flour. Then brown the meat on all sides in a small quantity of fat, with some sliced onions if you wish. Next add liquid, just enough to make steam, say about one-half cup of water to a good-sized: piece of meat. In other words, don't drown your pot roast with liquid. As soon as you pour in the liquid, cover the kettle with a close-fitting lid, and cook the meat slowly until it is tender through and through when pierced with a fork. As the steam gradually cooks the meat tender it also draws out the juices. But th|ey collect in the bottom of the kettle, and when you make gravy of these drippings, you lose none of the good meat flavor. Savory seasonings add zest to many a homely dish at little cost. The following seasonings are good with meat: Onions, sage, thyme, leaf savory, bay leaf, mint leaves, parsley (fresh or dried), celery tops (fresh or dried), celery seed, caraway seed, cloves, pepper, paprika, curry, grated horseradish, tabasco saruce, gai'lic buttons, and many others. Combine meat with other foods. Skill in combining foods, plus knowledge of food values is the key to interesting, appetizing, balanced meals. Meat is one of th£ very flavorful foods; so make it go as far as possible in toning up bland foods. Save all left-over meat, gravy, or drippings, and make broth of the bones. Keep left-over cooked meat cold, and serve as sliced meat or in salad. Or use left-over meat with other foods in appetizing hot dishes such as suffed peppers, chop suey, curry, browned 1 hash, and cror quettes. If you have a cold place to keep meat, you economize on fuel and time by cooking a large piece and using it for several meals. J. B. Martin of Mobeetie transacted business here yesterday.

(/P)— State officials will be asked soon to expunge "at the earliest possible convenience" two history textbooks now used in the Texas public school system because of alleged incorrect information concerning the church of England, Episcopalian laymen and clergy said today. A committee was appointed yesterday at the session of the Dallas diocese of the church to confer with the state board of education and the state textbook commission regarding the matter. : ,.-•.. The committee said untrue statements in the books named Henry Vin as founder of the church of England; Elizabeth as founder of the church and added that one statement said "the Roman Catholic church is solely and exclusively the Catholic church, hence the eastern orthodox Catholic bodies and the church of England are not Catholic and form no part of the Holy Catholic church." The committee also quoted an excerpt which said "the church of England is a Protestant sect and is not Catholic." The resolution passed at the session said Henry VHI could only have founded the church of England by an 'ex post facto' act prior to the seventh century and commented that "to designpt tt(e church of England as a Protestant sect is so fallacious as toj'equlre no denial." Senior B. T. S. Glass Is Entertained With Party Last Evening The senior training school class of Calvary Baptist church was entertained in the home of Mr. and Mrs, W. C. Brown last evening.

V • - .». - », STUDIO DRAMATIC SCLUB No meeting of the dramatic club, in the Vincent studio wiir\bejco: ducted tomorrow, as Dut-of- classes will demand/ , the; attention of Kathryn Vincent Steele, director, she announced todjiy. "The idraimatic club meets Gets a Medal A proud girl is Paillette Goddard, Charlie Chaplin's leading lady, shown here just after she won a medal in the Lake Arrowhead Ski club's 2-niilc endurance contest. And in spite of the fact that PauleHe seems to have taken at least one tumble during 1 the race. (Continued Irom page 1.) ments of this sum amount to 45 per cent of every ad valorem tax dollar. Tlie proposed tax, if sufficient, would therefore reduce ad valorem taxes 45 per cent. . . . Retail sales of Texas were reported by the federal census as $2,074,000,000 in 1930. A 2 per cent sales tax on that sum would provide about $40,000,000 annually, but a more conservative figure for an average year would be $20,000,000 to $30,000,000. This, applied to the state ad valorem tax requirement, would mean a saving of onry 6 per cent, hence it is proposed to apply the sum only to local taxation. IT-HE WEST TEXAS chamber assumes that the city, county, and school debts could be funded and the interest reduced to 3 per cent annually, guaranteed. Many observers think it could be done. The federal government might get behind it. The {saving in interest would be huge, and some bond holders of worthless paper would be glad to have their bond principals assured . . . Note that the proposal, with bond-funding plan, and continued use of the reduced ad va- lorem tax, is different from most of the sales tax plans previously discussed in'this column. gPACE TODAY will not permit a discussion of arguments against sales taxes in general. Two points may be mentioned by way of balanced analogy: 1. A sales tax is a levy upon wages and the income of all who must buy. It is sometimes called a "tax on poverty." 2. Continued demands for work-relief projects, old age pensions, direct relief, and other, similar propositions make new sources of revenue imperative. The ad valorem tax will not stand this added pressure. Homo and property owning is breaking utjder the strain. . . . Those who favor,'the tax believe that it would mate conditions better, spur private building, tend to relieve un- (imployment, and make wage earners 'able to bear a share of the cost of government.

THE REGULAR OF CALUMET BAKING AN IS SO €A$Y TO OPEN/ POIODER 15 NOIOONLY A POUND 7 TECH STUDENTS RIG OUT FANCY FOR DEAD WEEK Hair Ribbons, Beards Are Worn During Exam Period LUBOCK, Feb. 1 (IP}— Boredom, for once, has tried to express itself. Texas Technological college students, tired of the monotony resulting from "dead week", and the examination period have adopted fetiches of grooming and- dress to express their feeling: scarlet fingernails, beribboned hair, rougeless cheeks with powder, stubby beards, sweatshirts. Residents of the men's dormitory voted not to shave until the dreaded last two weeks of the semester are over, so dormitory girls placed their heads together and as a result ribbon and finger nail polish counters in Lubbock stores did a rushing business Thursday. Several co-eds appeared in vari-colored hair ribbons Thursday afternoon. Examinations begin today. No dates, no social affairs, last minute reviewing to be clone—it was too much, students thought, so they decided to do something about it. And they hope the strike will become a dormitory tradition durityf* "dead" weeks and examination, time. y" / They will end the striko»"wlth u dance in the men's dormitory Feb. 7, the last day of the fall semester, and the man with themost luxurious stubble will cany off a prize, according to their plans. The governor of his state may call a special election to fill the vacancy if he wants to, but the usual practice is to leave the place vacant until the next general election. For example, Senator Kendrick of Wyoming died in November, 1933. His term was to have expired in 1935. Joseph C. O'Mahoney was appointed to succeed him. Senator O'Mahoney's term did not extend for a full six years, however, but only for the unexpired portion of Kendrick's term. Another election was necessary, therefore, in Wyoming last year. It occasionally happens that a senator is chosen to complete an unexpired term at the same time at which the other senator from the same state faces re-election. One hears that this man is a candidate for the "short term" and the other for the "long term." This designation is inacurate. One candidate simply is seeking to fill an unexpired term, the other is seeking the full six-year term. Thus, New Mexico this year voted on two senatorial seats. Senator Hatch was appointed to fill a vacancy, but his appointment can-led over only until the next election and he was a candidate to complete the term which jixplres in 1937. Birthday Honored At Buffet Supper The birthday of C. C. Craig was honored at his home last night when a group of friends gathered for a buffet supper, then went to the Tokio club to dance. Those present were Mr. and Mi's. Connie Lockhart, Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Glisple, Mrs. Andrew Shults, and Mr. and Mrs. Craig. A number of gifts were presented with good wishes of the guests to Mr. Craig. ^ R. G.
