WILL DISCUSS NEW
IDEAS IN COOKING
Womans Club To Bring New
Features for Approaching
AT THE HIGH SCIjfcOL
Demonstrations of electric dish
washing win be one of the features
of the all-electric kitchen demon
stration sponsored by the Woman's
Club and being held at the High
School on July 2nd and 3rd. Miss
' Vivian .Bushong, of the Home Ser
vice Department of the Carolina
Power & Light Company,' Will con
duct the school, admission to which
will be free.
The magic of electricity for all
other kitchen problems-w-ill be de
monstrated by Mrs. Bushong, who
an authority on electric kitchen
irrangement. She will show how,
with the electric refrigerator, the
homemaker can economize through
quantity buying of perishables,
through the use of left-overs for
merly thrown away, and through
the ease of preparation of inexpen
sive frozen desserts, fehe will also!
show how you may save time and!
effort though advanced preparation
of meals. Delicious and tempting I
refrigerator desserts will be pre- -
pared. Cake batter, which can be
made up in quantity and stored in
the refirgerator for use when de
sired, will be mixed and put into
the refrigerator until you are ready
to bake, on the electric range. How
to broil steaks and chops to an
appealing golden-brown tenderness
without fear of smoke or splattering
grease wil be featured by her.
In addition she will demonstrate
the ease with which an electric
range can be operated and show its
supremacy to other types of cook-, \
ery. In preparing vegetables she I ?
will show that practically no water'.
Is required. Unbelievable as it may
seem, as much as ten pounds of po-1;
tatoes can be cooked with one small 1
measure of water. This method '
makes it possible to retain all the
fine minerals and vitamins which j
are lost in the large amount of '
water necessary in many other types 1
The all-electric kitchen demon-1
stration will not deal simply with
the preparation of foods. The cor
rect method of setting tables for
different occasions will be shown,
and by no means the least attrac
tive feature will be a Style Show to
be conducted by participating mer- 1
chants during the intermission.
We believe in giving honor where
honor is due. and would not take
any deserved honor from any one
but when we saw an article in the
Durham Sun telling about the many
tilings accomplished by Mr. J. L.1
Sally, formerly in charge of the
construction program of the CWA in'
jhls County we must enter a demur- j
Mr. Sally was probably on his
to, doing faithful service, but when!
the statement was made- that hFt
had completed all of the projects
here we must object; as a matter of
fact of the four large projects here, i
viz: Sewerage propositions, swim-,
misg pool, community house and
the, gym at the high school; as a
matter of fact all .of these projects
are far from completion, all save
the swimming pbol being hardly
more than started.
Roxboro is intensely interested in
these projects, and since Mr. Sally's
resignation scarcely any work has
been done on any of them?and very
little before Mr. Sally quit, and many ,
of us are fearful that they will
never be completed by the FERA.

created after the death of the CWA.

Some time during the early hours
of this morning Mr. Lucius Man
gum, well-known citizen of Morian,
fatally shot himself with a .^cal
ibre rifle in the temple. He was at
his service station at the time of
the suicide. It is said that a small
boy was with him, and that Mr.
Mangum sent him to the well for
a. bucket of water, and while the
child was gone, he fired the fatal
bullet. He is survived by several
children and relatives. No motive
for the act is known at this writing.

We enjoyed a pleasant visit from
our good friend. Rev. J .H. Shore of
Hamlet last Friday. As Mr. Shore
stated, we who do no farming al
ways know just exactly how it ought
to be done, and we decided for the
benefit of our farmer friends that if
they would cut about half of the
land they were not cultivating and
go in for extensive farming, making
one acre produce what they are
now getting from two .they would
sono get rich?by making their land
rich?and everything would be all
right with the farmer and the coun
try generally. Yes, sir. we both
know exactly how it could be done.

LARGE CROWD ENJOVS ROOSEVELT WILL TALK
COMMUNITY FISH FRY TO PEOPLE OF NATION
AT HURDLE MILLS AND GIVE ACCOUNTING
Widows Give Notice That They
Read List Of Eligibles In
Our Last Issue
j The good people of Hurdle Mills
community gave a fish fry last Fri
day afternoon at the old mill, and
were kind enough to invite us to
: participate. The editor, and the
Junior editor, Mr. F. O. Carver, were
there and did full duty in every way
required, which consisted in this
instance of seeing which could eat
the most fish. Well, F. O. Jr., has
the advantage of us by about seven
ty-five pounds, and of course you
know who won in this contest.
The grounds where these picnics
are held are ideal, located between,
two streams, with a fine sandy soil
and an abundance of shade. And
best of all, there are no better peo
ple on the globe than you find at
Hurdle Mills, they are progressive,
up-to-date, and If you are not look
ing for trouble you had best not say
anything derogatory concerning their
splendid high school. About 75 of
these good people had gathered for
this community fish fry, and every- i
thing was as near perfect as you
will find; the fish were done to a
turn, and that corn bread; honest- 1
ly, we have never tasted better, it ]
was cooked by the recipe of the ?
old black mammy?corn meal, salt, ,
and water. We had thought this j
mode of cooking had just about been ,
forgotten but they stil know how j
in this community. And by the way, (
when we were complimenting the ,
cooks they informed us "they had j
read the advertisement in our last i
issue about those three eligibles, and,(
we were instructed to tell.them that (
corn bread was prepared by some <
widows. Well, all we have to say is, j
they know how to cook, and these :
eligibles are tipped off to the fact. )
We thoroughly enjoyed-the after- j
noon and hope it may be our good
pleasure to have another invitation (
to this fine community. t

More than likely Mr. Roosevelt
would have delayed this accounting
until after his vacation, and until
lie had "spoken" his way back to
Washington, had it not been for the
yery great annoyance he has ex

which have attributed to him an
ntention of making a political and
iratorical effort to "sell" the new

ulace, it was made very clear in
White House circles this afternoon
hat Mr. Roosevelt does not believe
hat "selling" the new deal is ne
cessary: he believes that it has al
ready been sold by what has been
iccomplished. the improvement that

It was said for the President today j
hat the speeches, that are to punc
