Hurrying konac just before twilight the $ther day we saw hundreds of 1h«m in the trees at the courthouse.- We wish they would go off some winter and forget to return. - ; * « * TODAY'S GAG I. HENPECK was being bull- doied on the witness stand. "Ho you mean to say," Marked his wife's counsel, "that you have treated your wife with re- M R, H: doie irl Reserves To Honor 7! In Recognition Service ipect?" "Always," replied Henpeck firmly. "You mean to say," pursued the attorney, "that you've never once spoken a hasty %vord to her?" ; Henpeck thought a moment and then said, falteringly, "Well, I remember I once did say to her, Tut down that poker.' " * * * ' ST. PATRICK'S DAY S URE 'n it won't be long until we'll all be doing a jig and singing the "Wearing of the Green." St. Patrick's day (March 17) is as bright and gay as Irish laughter, so if you're planning a party, be sure it's a gala affair. Dig up ail of the Irish records you can. No one will be able to keep his feet still with that lively music. And give everyone a big green crepe paper bow to wear. It will add to the informality of the occasion. Refreshments can be attractive a part of an actor's equipment es his wardrobe. The diet calls for one day of "light" eating, followed by three days of normal feeding with the exception of potatoes, butter, cream, sugar and pastry. Then back to the one-day diet, followed by three days of eating as you would ordinarily with the exceptions noted above. This procedure carried out for one month, it was found, succeeded in taking off weight anc". at the : j and Theda Faye Bell, vice presi- same t\me did not sap one of his \ dent, will preside with Arline strength, leaving him pregnable to Younger, Katherine Duke and colds. ' ! Sammy Rhodes as readers. Informal Social Hcur Mrs. Rex Webster will sing. After the service, an informal social hour will be held in the parlors of the church. Mrs. J. C. Reynolds of the women's council and Miss Linioel Hilliard, adviser, will pour tea. Methodist Chapel To Be Scene Of Service In a candle'lighted recognition service for new members, 71 Senior High school girls will be presented into the Girl Reserves club tonight at 8 o'clock in the chapel of the First Methodist church. Decprations will feature the club colors, blue and white, and new members .will be presented with corsages of white sweetpeas tied with blue ribbon. Georgia Neal Harris, president, aria " ienit"'"£ hours of fuss in the kitchen. Whatever you choose for your St. Patrick's Day party, don't forget to add green maraschino cherries for that "just right" touch. * * * ONE-DAY DIET rpHERE have been 18-day and -*- 9-day diets, but in this period of strsamlining and of war when everyone at home is carrying on at his job and at the same time has volunteered for several civil defense jobs, time is at a premium. So it's natural that some one should think- of a one-day diet. Robert Kreis, the famous Brown Derby restaurant's celebrated chef, has prepared a diet that is said to be hailed by Hollywood where a trim figure is as necessary STOCKING DYES A NEW stocking dye, available "*• iij four shades, is on the mar:et now, developed after months f research. The product has been .esigned to dye stockings made of lylon, rayon, cotton, lisle, silk, vool and any combination of these abrics. The avaiJabJe shades are wine blush, brown butter, hula bronze and smoke haze.

You :an aid in Democracy's victory. There is a art for every single one of us but it cannot be accomplished by wishful thinking. Yesterday a woman approximately 55 years old approached me with her personal problems. "It seems her children ar? grown and married. She is a widow and has a substantial income. She wants to serve, she said, not at home but in Washington. She wants to do something dramatic. She feels there would be something for her to do in behalf of democracy's victory- She was a little irritable because the government was unable to find a place for her services. She complained there seemed no work for her to do at home. "She did not want to sew or knit, and she asked how people can\be content to study when so much is going on in the way of excitement. One could not help noting that the questioner was a Special guests will include Dr. W. B. Irvin, superintendent ol Lubbock public schools, and Mrs Irvin; R. W.
