Offjttts Victory- Luncheon Cone udes Annual District Convention •Ci , .____" Delegates, Visitors Lubbock women who en-i ,'twt'alned delegates are turning attention to buying week'• groceries and the normal . of living. *-. £Jt was generally agreed that : tJjJ5 ; was one'of the most success' fijA ;' conventions the district has ihsd.' No friction marked the ses- no hurt feelings or niis- that sometimes happened at simiiar mest- -Ings. t»'}Ve heard criticism on the l^nglh of the Friday morning program but as Mrs. H. F.'Godeke remarked to us before the con- Trillion opened: "You must take time at a convention for inspiration; for challenging addresses." I* The Woman's Angle could not help wondering what the women who fidgeted to leave before dis- rriLssal had to do that was more important than giving their attention to the program. Clubs pay the expenses of their delegates; they are entitled to conv prehensive and interesting reports. * * * W E still think that the district is too large and that women scattered over .49 counties cannot V|e expected to be fully represented, especially in times like these when tires are growing scare and the distance is for from your Home town.. < And don't forget that the pre- g c ent administration has almost ^ight months yet to serve before handing, over the reins of office. South Plains has been "\vell rep- Resented with three officers, Mrs. H. ' F. Godeke, president: Mrs. Enamett Kerr. secretary and Mrs. James O. Cade, first vice president, living here. After this year Oie district executives will live in . the • Panhandle wth Mrs, Wes lizard of Amarillo as president ind Mrs. ^Raymond W. Harrah of Ijsmpa, first vice president. I ;Mrs. Izzard plans to take most o2:the summer outlining her pro- grain of administration and said she intends to get the promise of esch woman to accept a responsibility before she gives them a qhairmanship or an honorary office. She is an energetic, ambitious -little woman. Another of her dj earns is to give, the junior club women a break. •i«v • " * # * - L"--\ THINGS TO'DO .~ . CAPTAIN W. W.

Here Number 340 Three hundred forty delegates and visitors registered for the 21st aiinual convention of the {seventh District, Texas Federation of Women's clubs, which was con- Aided with a Victory Luncheon at Hotel Lubbock Friday afternoon. Mrs. F. A. Kleinschmidt presided for the program which was highlighted by an address, "Ish- maelites," y Dr. H. L. Pritchett, professor of sociology and mental hygiene counselor at the Southern Methodist University in Dalias. Awards Given ' Presentation of the-new officers was followed by the announcement of the following awards: Texas composers, Mrs. Carl Scoggin of Lubbock, first and second places; short stoiy, Mrs. R. S. Underwood of Lubbock, first place for her story, "V foi- Vengeance"; art, Mrs. Chester Hubbard of Lubbock, first, and Mrs. Cecil Foster of Sudan, second; poetry, Mrs. L. M.

Yearbook, Eleanor Roosevelt of Skellytown, Twentieth Century of Borger, Junior Art and Civic club of Lefors, Twentieth Century 01 Pampa, Twentieth Century of Spur. The convention decided to incorporate the regional forums on political sciences with the club institutes this fall, in order to save tires. Here are several of the resolutions adopted: "That the T. F. W. C. in convention assembled urge Congress and other proper executive and administrative officials to eliminate every cause of STOPPAGE in defense industries within their power.. "That the T. F. W. C. request the government, to curtail SHARPLY its allotment of sugar to all non- defense industries now using su- : gar in the manufacture of their products. Tliis curtailment should apply especially to those drinks and beverages alcoholic and nonalcoholic .in the .manufacture of which .other, kinds,-of -sweets,-or grains" of "which there ~is 'a surplus may be" used." Practical Suggestions Practical suggestions in child training presented themselves - in Doctor Pritchett's talk. An Ismael- ite, he explained, is a person who feels like every man's hand is against his, and his hand is against every man's hand. He described a number o£ Ismaelites, adolescent boys, and girls who are problems to their homes, schools and communities because of inferiority complexes that developed,in their own homes. "When youth has to make a decision between the demands of his family' and the demands of his youth group, he has to yield to the youth, because that group is his social world," he explained. The only time a lot of children get attention from busy fathers is when they arouse the fathers' anger, and many children satisfy a hunger /or attention by keeping their mothers in anxiety. "Delinquency," he pointed out, "nearly always has its beginning in the home." f. Simple - Scientific .»' . : .

New Milk Bottle introduced Here The influence o£ modevri streamlining has spread into" the milk industry according to F. E. Crites, manager of the Borden Company. Mr. Crites announced today that he had-recently purchased the new ' Economi 'Quart "speed-lined" milk bottles to replace the old-fashioned bottles at all points of delivery. Slightly shorter and wider through the- shoulders, or neck,' the new containers represent the' first basic change in milk bottle design in 50 years. The new shap'e gives additional strength, lighter weight, but retains • the standard full 32-ounce capacity, Saves Lot Of Space "I believe everyone is going to like the Economi Quart bottle," Mr. Crites said, . "especially women. It's 'speed-lined', easier; to handle because it's lighter, and fits the hand better. And it sure- saves a lot of space in the refrig-; erator.' : Mr. Crites went on to say that: milk bottles are now designed and manufactured by the same scien-" tific methods of line production that characterize the automotive industry. The new bottle was designed as the Economi Quart because of its savings in space, weight/and trouble. • "Another thing about this new bottle," Mr. Crites continued, "is that the 'speed-lined' effect makes it pour easier, without dripping.- And the weight is distributed so as to prevent the bottle from tipping and spilling.' 1 Adv.
