[Column Two]
One night William Howard
Taft, then a young law report-
er, finished studying a case in
Somerville, Ohio, and dis-
covered that he could not get
back to his office that night un-
less he could stop a through
express. He wired division
headquarters: "Will you stop
through express at Somerville
to take on large party?"
Promptly came back the reply:

When the train arrived, the
conductor said to Mr. Taft,
"Where's the large party we
were to take on?"

Mr. Taft regarded his own
comfortable bulk ruefully and
laughed. "I'm it," he said,
stepping aboard the train.

Popular Book Now
At Slater Library

The Slater Library has a
copy of one of the leading best
sellers, "The Egg And I," by
Betty MacDonald.

This book is an account of
the experience of two newly
weds who wanted to buy a little
place in the country and get
away from it all! These young
people tried to realize their
dreams by embarking upon the
development of a chicken farm
on the west coast. Bob knew
a few rudiments of the poultry
business, but Betty thought of
chickens and eggs only in terms
of "something to eat". What
she learned about the egg, baby
chicks who were always trying
to kill themselves, insects,
moonshiners, Indians, bears,
pigs, and Neighbors is the
theme of this rollicking, enter-
taining book which is bubbling
with humor.

Get "The Egg And I" at the
Slater Library and read it at
your earliest convenience.

For the last few years, the
United States has enthusiasti-
cally imported from Middle
America vast amounts of a
"product" which, added togeth-
er, would probably fill only a
brief case. The "product" is the
native music of these neighbor-
ing countries to the south. Re-
cently, however, the tables were
turned when songwriters Albert
Gamse and Irving Fields of
New York came up with a hit
tune titled "Managua, Nicara-
gua." The song found such
favor with Nicaraguans that
the two New Yorkers have been
awarded that Middle American
country's Distinguished Service


In view of the fact that there
are many sweltering days
ahead before summer gives way
to cool, bracing Autumn days,
we wish to pass on to our read-
ers a number of "Tips and
Tricks" listed in "The Home-
maker" magazine for July,
1947—tips that we believe will
prove helpful to all those who
like to beat the hot weather
with picnics or other forms of
outdoor eating.

"The Homemaker" begins
this General Feature by listing
eight pointers under the title,
"Pleasure-Packed Picnics."
Since space does not permit us
to give you all of these pointers,
we list verbatim the following

1. Do flies and bees bother
you when you picnic? Cover
your food with old metal lamp
shade frames to which you have
attached mosquito netting. Or
protect your food with the
bottom part of a transparent
hat box.

2. For quantity cooking on
a picnic, construct this simple
barbecue pit. Cut an air vent
from the side of an old wash
tub, and then remove the bot-
tom. Attach wire grate or
heavy mesh screen to bottom
and place over coals, bottom
side up. On this you can cook
a lot of hot dogs at once.

3. An ordinary bread or cake
box makes an excellent picnic
hamper. Attach a leather strap
to keep the lid closed and use
the strap as a handle. Or carry
your lunch in an old suitcase,
gaily painted.

4. An old-fashioned corn
popper works well as an out-
doors wiener broiler. Be sure
to get a long-handled one to
save burnt fingers.

5. If you pack food for pic-
nics in glass jars, protect the
jars from breakage when
traveling with strips of rubber.
Just cut an old inner tube into
inch-wide strips and place two
of these around each jar.

Now let us give you two of
"The Homemaker's" tips for
outdoor cooking:

1. Surprise the folks by put-
ting the trimmings inside,
rather than on top of the ham-
burgers! Make two thin ham-
burger patties of beef, salt and
pepper. On top of one, place a
very thing slice of onion, a table-
spoon of sweet pickle relish,
then the other patty. Pinch
edges of the patties together
and fry or broil until brown.
Serve in a bun. Or instead of
the pickle relish, use horse rad-
ish, catsup, or mustard.

2. When serving roasted
corn or barbecued chicken to be
eaten with the fingers, your
guests will appreciate it if you
have warm water handy. A
child's gay sand bucket makes
an appropriate finger bowl.

With these few tips for en-
joyable picnics and outdoor
cooking, let us wish for you
many happy outdoor excursions
during the remainder of the
summer. And incidentally, how
about taking a book or maga-
zine to read as you relax some-
where in a shady nook! The
library can supply you with
this material, so come in and
select some today. We'll be
looking for you.


The August 4 meeting of the
Girls' Library Club was a very
enjoyable occasion since it fea-
tured a "cooking party". The
girls met at the library and
selected their books, after
which they went to the com-
munity kitchen at Slater Hall.
There the group made "cinna-
mon squares" which were
served with Pepsi-Colas during
the social period.

The following girls are mem-
bers of the club: Sandra Bur-
gess, Diane Barnes, Joyce Bry-
ant, Nancy Burnette, Frances
Burnette, Marcelle Buchanan,
Judy Cox, Molly Cooper, Ann
Orr Cooper, Elaine Childs,
Sarah Jane Christopher, Car-
olyn Dixon, Barbara Godfrey,
Sigrid Gosnell, Betty Garrett,
Joyce Hargrove, Jackie Hay-
den, Barbara Lou Hester, Fran-
ces Hester, Sarah Faye John-
son, and Carolyn Moody.

ents for the "cinnamon

Card Of Thanks

Mrs. Delia Miller and family
wish to express their sincere
thanks and appreciation to the
ones who were so kind and
thoughtful to Mrs. Miller dur-
ing her illness and hospitaliza-

They especially thank those
who donated blood for trans-
fusions and those who offered
to donate. The flowers, cards,
visits, prayers, and expressions
of friendliness were also

May God's richest blessings
rest on each of you for having
been so considerate.

When right, you can afford
to keep your temper. When
wrong, you can't afford to lose
it.—Frank E. Polk, Birming-
ham News-Age-Herald.
