Paying Parliament By GEORGE S.BENSON President of Harding College ^ Searcy, Arkansas E* -~ HOW would you like to be elect id to the board of governors of be finest country club you ever law? Unless you are an excep donal person, you can’t afford luch a job. It would use a lot if time and there’s no salary con lected with it. Helping to boss i lovely palace in the middle of » big playground is fun (I imagine) but it’s an expensive mm***mmM 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.^ Deserve* BY THE WAY, Mrs. A Raise Harry S. Truman used uutr- - to serve her husband as secretary when he was sena tor from Missouri. The President told it himself to the press while be was discussing the proposal to allow additional expense pay to representatives. It would be hard to find stronger testimony that members of the Congress of the United States need better compensation for the work they *>’««*• t In every practical sense, mem bers of Congress have been elect 'd to the board of governors of the world’s grandest country — a country club. They repre I sent important segments of peo ple who have chosen them to help boss (not a playground) the most influential power under the shin ing sun, and until early last June, they got $10,000 a year — pay for a junior executive, s' f A. _ _ 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 congressmen use precious hours doing chores for people 1 back home because they can’t afford enough competent assistants. J" j? Many- solons labor intemper-i ately. Rep. Doughton, who is past, 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 firm than Doughton is to his state and nation? American legislators are top-flight, except in pay. & • * Must we send rich men to Con gress because poor men lack funds to finance the job? Do we want incompetents on Capitol Hill who never could earn so much anywhere else? The answer is “no” of course; America can afford the best. Then congratu late your congressman'on this in crease and don’t let him wail 20 years for the next one. W ADAM'S HAT -.-—-H BILL SEFTONJ.op u.s.c,piRST man in C HISTORV To VAULT 14 ft. 8'AlN. . ' V.

Whether your own son or sweetheart is one of the lucky ones enjoying leave or whether you are playing host to boys assigned from the U.S.O. or Red Cross, it’s a challenge to you to make those dreams come true. Now is the time to make a glamour cake and a batch of luscious cookies, then skimp later on sweetening and shorten ing, if necessary to balance your ration books. To do pioper honor to the dreams of the boys on furlough, you'll want to bake the yummiest treats pos sible and you’ll want to pick your recipes with special care to make your use of materials pay maximum dividends of joy. To insure lovely even grain and melting tenderness :o- your furlough cakes, it’s a good -•■iaa to use cake flour; you'll find, ;oo, that mix-easy method recipes will help even an amateur cake maker achieve perfect results with half the usual beating time. When sugar is short, you can provide the thrill of a lavish frosting by utiliz ing a prepared chocolate pudding, for instance, as a topping or filling or by making a corn syrup or jelly frosting. Here is a mix-easy cake recipe that calls for a little sugar and promises big dividends in taste appeal for the eager boys on fur lough. Delicate Furlough Cake t cups sifted cake flour (2‘i teaspoons double-acting baking powder % teaspoon salt m cups sugar '•*•3 3 egg whites H cup vegetable shortening S' :ii cup milk 1 teaspoon vanilla _ f.AIix by hand or with electric r.': ;■ at low speed.) . noucence. measure into sift Fertilize Grapes Grapes like any other crop will never grow' unless the vine has plenty of fertilizer. Apply one or two pounds to a vine, depending upon your fertilizer program of the last few years. This rate is for ordinary garden fertilizer such as a 5-8-7 or a 5-1-5. The latter is the analysis of the present victory gar den fertilizer. er with baking powder, salt, and 1 cup sugar. Beat egg whites until foamy. Add remaining % cup sugar gradually, beating only until mixture will hold up in soft peaks; set aside. Have shortening at room temper ature; mix or stir just to soften. Sift in dry ingredients; add milk and vanilla and mix until all flour is dampened. Then beat 2 minute*. Add egg white mixture and beat 1 minute longer. (Count only actual beating time. Or count beating strokes. Allow 100 to 150 full strokes per minute. Scrape bowl and spoon or beater often.) Turn batter into two 8-inch layer pans, which have been greased, lined on bottoms with waxed paper, and greased again. Bake in moder ate oven (375°F.) about 25 minutes. This cake may also be baked in 10xl0xl2-inch pan in moderate oven (375°F.) about 30 minutes. Corn Syrup Substitution: Use Vi cup corn syrup and % cup sugar in above recipe. (Measure V2 cup sugar into sifter and use M cup sugar in meringue.) Decrease milk 2 tablespoons. Combine syrup with milk and vanilla. Stone Jar Molasses Cookies 3 cups sifted cake flour 2 teaspoons double-acting baking powder 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon ginger 1 cup molasses Vz cup shortening ’,<[ teaspoon soda Sift flour once, measure, add double-acting baking powder, salt, and ginger; sift again.

Press flat with bottom of glass cov ered with damp cloth or cut with floured cookie cutter. Bake in mod erate oven (350°F.) 15 minutes. Re move from pan: cool. Makes 4% dozen. _ __ Cooking Fish Moderate rather than high tem peratures should be the rule regard less of the cooking method used for fish. This applies even to steaks and fillets, which are frequently broiled. Brush them with melted fat, turn them once only and avoid overcooking, which usually results in dryness and loss of flavor. CliLiiMBIA'S REX INGRAM-THE lAWD.THE DEVIL,0R A 2***____.- ..-r'te :.iaaafifcfa.jaK4- jitfflfc 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 ! Robert E. Lee oa “01 Mia River" .] between Natchez and Somewhere. He' ! graduated from Northwestern Vaster.', ’ Ingram plays the giant in Columbia's "A Thousand and One Nights". j £ I , ■ Ingram gave his life as the Sudanese Sergeant-Majorin Columbia's "Sofioro". I Rex was the talk ef the town when he appeared as a dignified, intelligent butler in "The Talk of the Town". A typical photo of Ingram, the roman ticist, with mous tache and beard.

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 needs.
