In the days before trainmen insisted upon inspecting tickets at the car steps, careless passengers occasionally boarded the wrong train, to their later chagrin and inconvenience. It remained for a, man in Brussels to be the first to take the wrong airplane, whereby he was carried to London when he wanted to go to Paris. Mrs:. Phil Ridgeway, who is spending the winter in Winterset at the home of her nephew, Frank L. Drennan, came Tuesday and is spending several days with friends. Another time-honored belief goes by the board, if a declaration by Dr. Wilkinson, a noted Australian orthodontist, may be given credence. He says the old idea that a heavy jaw and prominent c hi i n d e n o |t e s strength of character is not necessarily true, but it does indicate that the individual did not suck his thumb when he was a baby. Mrs. Bonnie Blacker of Garaner, Kansas, Mr. and Mrs. Tom McMahon, Joe McMahon of Kansas City, Mrs. Karl McCulloch of Des Moines and Mr. and Mrs. Hal Childs of Des Moines, were called here Tuesday, because of the death of Mrs. A.

Pish must have oxygen in order to live. When the ice completely covers a .shallow lake the dissolved oxygen content in the water reduces in maixy cases to a dar, '.ovously low amount. Commission employees make regular tests of the major lakes and when conditions become serious, pumps are installed and an attempt is made to increase the oxygen. To take care of all waters in the state and to install pumps is a physical impossibility. But the loss of fish can be reduced if every fisherman, sportsman's group or any interested individual living near a lake or body of water would make oblong si'ap- ed holes in the ice and keep these holes open. The holes should be cut windwisc, that the prevailing winds will assist in keeping the hole open and cause agitation of the water. Birds are not the only wildlife to suffer and the hunter has all he can do to keep up on a regular feeding program. But the fisherman also has hi.s share of the caring for wildlife in which he is interested if he would save his fish for catching next summer. There is plenty to do by everyone interested in conservation. Please, lend a hand. That Northward Flight Within 30 days, signs of activity will be noted in migratory bird circles. This is dependent on the severity of the weather and available open water. During late February and March, ducks and geese are usually noted winding their way back to the north after a winter's sojourn in the "Sunny South". The Missouri and Mississippi River.?, as well as many Iowa lakes and marshes will be a resting place for thousands of birds, particularly cluck;; and geese. It is one of the most interesting times of the. year for those intoiv.sl.cd in birds and affords everyone an opportunity • to see birds which are visitors in Iowa only a short, time. At this time of the year the majority of birds are in their brightest plumage and considered most beautiful. It is an ideal time for junior groups to study birds and the old folks will be surprised to learn how few birds they can identify. Return the Tag Many birds and animals bearing numbered bands or tags have been released to the wild by the Conservatism Commission during the past three years. Frequently a band or tag is reported by someone who has either killed or trapped the bird or animal, or has found it dead, either killed by a predator or car. Some people feel that it might incriminate them to ireport a band or tag found on a dead animal during the closed season. This is not true, because the circumstances surrounding the finding of the bird is sufficient to convince the Conservation Commission that it was in order. The important thing is to report the band or tag to the Conservation department office in Des Moines. Each band or tag is numbered and a record kept of where the bird or animal was released. Only by the reporting of the numbered bands or tags can the Conservation Commission be informed of the movement or migration and determine why certain speces will not remain where placed. It is an important study and is a guide to the Commission in formulating its game policy from year to year. During the past open hunting- seasons several bands and tags have been returned and some important data added to the studies being made The most recent report was the reporting of a tag taken from the ear of a fox killed by Ralph W. Heerts near Grundy Center. The tag was placed on the ear of a fox pup captured in May 1934 by Conservation Officer O'Hara in Beaver Township, Guthrie County and turned over to Bonnie Davidson of Menlo as a pet under a pet permit. The fox- escaped from Davidson and has been running' wild since only to be killed by Heerts. The success of the tagging program depends on returns or reports and the Conservation Commission urges everyone to be on the lookout for bands and tags. For the Homemaker Ideas, Suggestions, News for Women Readers Cousins to Cabbage Cousins to the cabbage are chineese cabbage and brussels sprouts. And they are just as tempermental as their relative. They will "raise an awful stink" if they are overcooked. Not only that, but the color and the flavor of these vegetables is affected adversely by long cooking, as is true of cabbage. The proper way to. treat these finicky cousins, all of them, is to cook in a small amount of boiling water, uncovered, until just barely tender. Chinese cabbage, which looks a bit like celery and tastes something like a mild turnip, may be served raw as salad or in salad combinations. Cross- sections of the stalk may be served with French or Russian dressing, and variety may be added by placing a small spoonful of popper relish on the salad before adding the dressing. Brussels sprouts may be served buttered, creamed or scalloped in the same way as cab- bag-j i.s served.

In .1830 Texas won its independence from. Mexico, the year being marked by its declaration of "independence on March 2; the slaughter of the entire garrison of the Alamao on March 6 by the Mexicans; the defeat of the Mexicans at San Jacinto by General Sam Houston on April 21, which ended the war and gave Texas its freedom. This year Texas will celebrate its centennial with a great; ex- nosition at Dallas. FOOTBALL PROBLEMS NOTICE I have been reported for not cleaning my sidewalks. I have kept them clean myself until I became unable to do the work and since then I have hired the work clone. When heavy snows came this year they got ahead of me and I was slow in getting the walks clean so some of my neighbors who live west of me reported me to the town. My walks are free from snow and arc cleaned off full width. This is much more than can be said of other walks between my place and town. Some of the folks who live in my end of town do not have sidewalks so they shovel a path across the road and use the walks on my side of the street. If they are so anxious to have my walks kept clean they should offer to j help clean them. D. W. STAHL. Problems of the football world were discussed "at annual meetings of four organizations which met in New York during holiday week, among tho topic,? being- casualties to players, drunkenness at games, and professionalism in colleges. Before the association of Coaches, Professor Eastwood of New York University gave statistics on football deaths and injuries, which he has carefully compiled over a period of several years. His records disclosed that 30 players were killed during the 1935 season, as against 25 killed in 1934. There were 55,440 injuries serious enough to be recorded, among some 60,000 high school teams, and 9,900 injuries among players on 829 college teams. It is i estimated that injuries caused football players to lose a total of a million clays of school work last year. Intoxication at football games was blamed on non-college spectators by President Lewis of Lafayette, who would perhaps oe surprised to find an undergraduate or an alumnus with a flask on his hip. The national college athletics organization appointed a special ommittec to study the question of professionalism and make a report at the next convention. This is perhaps only another pious gesture of little consequence. The fact is that college foot- oall is a commercialized sport, :uid all the resolutions that .nay be passed and all the committees that may be appointed arc not likely to make it anything else. But it's a great sport at that. Although he fell 55 feet to the ground while painting a grain elevator in Higginsville, Mo., Steeplejack James Kelley was only slightly injured. Dymia Hsiung, from China, never heard of "sex appeal" till she came to America. Her husband is in New York producing J a play on Broadway. As a young woman, Mrs. Etta Richardson, of Woodland, Calif., became the bride of Geo. Richardson, and after he died she married his brother, Alfred, and when he died she married his other brother, John. Charged with 10 burglaries in Rochester, N. Y., where ho attended a divinity school, S. A. Allen, Jr., 29, is awaiting trial in criminal court. Theft of a railroad is the charge against William Trimemt who is under arrest in Lowell, Mass. Police allege that ho has; stolen 1;0 lens of rails over about five miles of territory. William Mixon, colored, wa,:; burned to death in a shack in which he lived at Scottsville, Va. His three pet cats still keep a daily vigil al the ruins of the shack. ''I want to sec what kind of a housekeeper she is," explained John Hahn, 80, of Plaines, 111., when he took out a license to marry Lillian Snycler, 72. Frank Melchert of Cincinnati inserted a lighted match in the shoe sole of a sleeping victim who turned out to be a policeman. Russell Giard, 28, of Los Angeles, had to write thn county clerk in Oakland, Calif., for the name of his wife he had married five years ago and now wants to divorce. Charles Layman, 45, of Los Angeles, shot three PWA workers because they abused him. Police believe he was demented. As he was about to perform an operation on a patient at a hospital in Michigan City, Ind., Dr. Emil Krueger, eminent surgeon, was stricken ill. Tobias Wildstein of New York City, after blowing out 109 candles on his birthday cake said "why shouldn't I get married again if the right girl comes along?" The baby of Mrs. Florence Gantrell of Dublin, was sent to prison with his mother, convicted of shoplifting. When Mrs. Caroline Totten of Boston accused Mrs. Kate Martin of stealing her false teeth, a fight started and the police arrested them both. The thief who stole the Bible from the Community Church at Rurdine, Ky 1 ., certainly hadn't "got religion." yet. The members of the church think him the meanest of rogues.
