“Ah-h-h It’s just Pop—The ladder fell and he’s
Now hanging from the chandelier.
The Order of the Day still is.. ..
• With thanks for V-E day
still in our hearts, America turns toward ^
the Far East to concentrate 6n another ■
savage foe... measuring the Jap for the 1
knockout blow. '
All through the fight, and even after
final Victory, ",Full Speed Ahead” must
remain the order of the day. For there
is an equally vital job ahead—building
a sound, solvent post-war America—
guarding against the pitfalls of economic
strife, depression, and unemployment—
holding fast to the principles which have
made America great.
America will heed the call—and trans
portation will play a vital part in the
building job which lies ahead. We of the
Burlington will be working with our fel
low-Americans in friendly cooperation
for a just, lasting, and prosperous peace.

7A rich country club is prover
bially well managed. It does not
need to economize and cut cor
ners, but that’s only part of the
story. It is governed by men of
singular ability with spare time,
who like their club and take per
sonal interest in it. They have
no better minds than men who
bustle for business and use their
wives for stenographers, but ex
cellence thrives on deliberation.^

A Raise Harry S. Truman used

t In every practical sense, mem

a country club. They repre

Position! ONE OF Americans
of Trust i ugliest habits is criti
cizing Congress for
shortcomings that result directly
from being poorly paid. No one
man can study all the profound
issues congressmen must vote on,'
and no $10,000 man can afford to
pay experts to digest them. Often

81, rises regularly at 5:00 a.m.,1
and starts his 12-hour day at
6:30; this after 34 years in the
House and 14 years chairman of
the Ways & Means Committee.
What $100,000 official of industry
claims to be worth more to his

are top-flight, except in pay.

high on their dream lists of “What

Cooking Fish
Moderate rather than high tem

fish. This applies even to steaks

broiled. Brush them with melted

overcooking, which usually results in
dryness and loss of flavor.

IT is a question as to whether Rex *
Ingram is De Lawd, the Devil, or a *
gentleman. Being but of mortal mold
he could hardly aspire to the ever
lasting magnanimity of the Omnipo
tent: because he is so engrossed in
helping his fellow human beings, you
could never ascribe to him the quali
ties of Satan; yet, in the traditional
interpretation of the term gentleman,
j Rex couldn’t be classified as the over
polite, over-groomed namby-pamby
the word has come to signify. Ingram
is just a big, full-living intelligent
human being. However, millions have
come to know him as De Lawd in
“Green Pastures”, as the ingenious, j
devil-may-care Sergeant-Major in [
“Sahara" and as the soft-spoken, well
dressed gentleman’s gentleman in
“The Talk of the Town.” The last two
vehicles were Columbia pictures, in
which he was featured. Ingram always
manages to adapt himself to the. role
he is to portray with convincing ex
cellence, hence the controversy as to
what the real man is like.
We know that where an actor as
versatile as Ingram is involved, the
controversy must continue because of
the broadness of his creative imagina
tion and dramatic ability. For in
stance, in his next vehicle for Colum
bia Pictures, “A Thousand and One
Nights” in which he has a featured
role, Ingram plays the part of a mon
strous, ferocious giant, the like of
which you have never seen before. It
is a spot fit for an actor of Ingram’s
talents, taken from the substance of
oriental folklore and conjured by
camera magic to more than equal the
finest fantasies of the Indian fakirs.
The cameras transform Ingram to
three times human size, able to with
1 stand right-handed sword-thrusts, lift
full-grown men by his finger-tips, and
able to tantalize his victims all the
while with effortless jibes. It will be
impossible for millions not to think of
Rex as a terrible giant until they see
him.again in another role, maybe as
a priest, a poet, an emperor, or as a
lowly southern share-cropper.
Ingram’s very presence in the theatre
k a contradiction. He was born on the !

graduated from Northwestern Vaster.', ’

There are two aspects to the im-j
portant matter of feeding, your
baby. First, is the food itself —■'
that it be nutritionally adequate to<
meet the needs of any individual
infant. Your baby has a definite
requirement to meet his needs.
Your doctor should determine what
foods are necessary and when
those which are added from time
to time should be given. It is high
ly desirable for you to know when
:ertain foods are given so that you
will realize the importance of main
lining the schedule.
Second is the technique or meth
od of feeding your baby. This is
almost entirely your concern.
The> basic consideration for you]
s to see that your baby develops)
food habits of eating. This is de
pendent on his enjoyment of eat
ing. If mealtimes are happy, if)
be is allowed to eat to satisfy his
hunger and thus receive pleasant
sensations, he will unconsciously
learn to eat the foods he should.
Allow for variations in appetite1
and do not be concerned if he
doesn’t eat as much as you think
he should. Forcing or urging will
take away his independence and
deprive him of the chance to de
velop on his own initiative.
A happy baby will eat what he
