PARIS NEWS, PARIS, TEXAS Artist Has Real Talent B' > ' • N <4 The volume of spending during recent months has been held In check by consumer resistance to rising prices, the Department of Commerce reports. HAS THE GRASS GOT YOU MISTER? That's a question that many a Parisian is answering in the affirmative, what with all of the rain we've been having, and the ground so wet that it was impossible to get on the grass with a mower. But now we've had several days of dry weather, and what you need to do is get a lawnmower, hedge shears and other garden tools and get to work. Of course an old lawnmower will do a passable job, but those new Eclipse mowers and other good ones at House Hardware Company make the job a lot •«sier, and if you want to buy /ne you had belter not put it off very long. House Hardware Company has a stock of everything it takes to ieep the lawn looking good, the gnrden flourishing, and many other things for the home and yard. LORENE RUTHERFORD FAHf A real talent for drawing, a flair for what makes style, and infinite capacity for hard wark, not to mention a verjf gracious personality, are the factors which have made Lorene Rutherford's fashion drawings something worthwhile. She is employed now by Perkins Bros. Store, which a probably the only firm in a town the size of Paris which has its own artist to sketch merchandise from stock for advertising purposes. Her first training was in the public school classes at Oak Cliff High School in Dallas, taught by Mrs. Nellie Clement. Mrs. Rutherford, .then Lprene Bellinger of Petty community, west of Paris, was staying In Dallas with her grandmother, and. attending school. There she learned the general principles of drawing, which developed the talent which she says she inherited from her father, and sees growing now In her 15-year-old daughter, Mary Elizabeth. After her marriage to Frank Rutherford, while her second daughter, Joan, was a baby in arms, she began going weekly to Greenville with a Honey Grove friend for commercial art instruction from A. J. Swindell. Next came the Art Institute in Dallas, where she studied life drawing under Olin Travis and fashion sketching with Mrs. Harriet. Grandstaff. When she learned later of the plant opened in Paris by the Publishers Engraving Co., she came to see the manager, R. H. McCoin, now in the Army, and offered her services for any commercial drawings needed in connection with the plant's orders for work. Her first work in this field was a fashion sketch for an advertisement by Arthur Caddel Co. Other stores liked her work and the idea of sketched-on-the-spot merchandise, and she began to be a very busy person indeed. Then one day when She and Miss Ellen Connor of Paris noted for her original rhymes and jingles, happened to be in The Paris News office at the same time, someone remarked, "You two ought to know each other." They "clicked" at once, and after a while evolved the idea of a syndicated feature, pictures "by Rutherford, jingles by Connor. This eventually became "Classy AddSe," a promotional feature for classified advertising, which made its debut in The Paris News, and presently was syndicated for about a year and a half In between times, she was i drawing fashion sketches, letter- j head designs for farmers and oth-' ers, illustrations for livestock aos, designs for individual book marks, sketches for souvenir booklets, Christinas cards and commercial designs, including that for a Paris product, Mrs. Wright's Plantation Pralines. Notable among her recent work has been a full page layout for Perkins Eros., in a special edition of The Paris News. Whatever the picture is, one may be sure of its appeal, its excellent adherence to the principles of good drawing, and a distinctive treatment. Classy Addie, pert little miss, who took everything In her stride, Is typical of the cleverness and originality evidenced by Mrs. Rutherford's work, whatever the subject or treatment. Missing In Action Who Will Win The BABY DERBY?

Emphasize Quality Of Sweet Potato Slips Importance of Lamar County Farmers making certain that their sweet potato slips are of pood quality has been emphasized in a statement made by J. E. McDonald, commissioner of agriculture. McDonald urged the sweet potato plant buyers to make certain that every slip bears a tag. which he said, is insurance against black rot, stem wilt, and the sweet potato weevil. These tags, it was explained, are issued by the State Department of Agriculture only to growers whose plants have been inspected and approved.

"It will be up to the mothers themselves to do the remembering on Sunday," said 64-year-old Anna M. Jarvis. "Perhaps one of our boys will fall on the battlefield. Then his mother would like to know there was a letter from home in his pocket." Miss Jarvis' love for her mvn mother led her to persuade Congress in 1914 to designate the ?PC- ond in May as Mother's Day. Since then, she had written thousands of letters to promote the observance in every state and in more than 50 foreign countries. "I have another message for Mother's Day," Miss Jarvis said. Sons and daughters should know better than to send their mothers flowers and candy. Back in 1910 when I began my campaign to have the whole world honor mothers, I didn't dream of this modern commercialism. "Instead, get mother that easy Examinations Open For Position Of Postmaster At Sumner Examination to fill n contemplated vacancy in the position of fourth class postmaster at Sumner have been announced by the U.

You've always wanted it. We all have. First it was marbles, then a bike, then a car, then a house. Now it's more than that. Now we all want to have and to hold our way of life, our form of government, our country. Fortunately, we HAVE that right. All we need to do is to protect and preserve it.
