She Went Home
With An Angel
Her earthly star rose fast and
set soon, but the trip she took
the other night brought her safe
ly home to Journey’s End, in the
Big Room of Eternal Light. Little
Joan Stines was afflicted with a
heart disorder which caused her
to go. In her brief visit here, she
captured the admiration of
many with her smile and hope
fulness—even after the doctors
said she would stay down here
but for a while longer.
Her mother, Mrs. W. A. Stines
works in Carding; her brother,
Kenneth, in Spooling.

FIRESTONE FAMILY LIVING
This Meat Loaf A Good Basic Winter Dish
Cooking and baking are almost instinctive arts w^ith Trella Beaver of first-shift Sales
Yarn Twisting. Preparing good things to eat comes “so natural”, Mrs. Beaver doesn’t
ordinarily make use of a cook book in her kitchen at 102 Miller street.
Her husband, William—a first-shift twister tender here for more than 22 years—highly
endorses her kitchen creations. There are others who, long ago, learned that Mrs. Beaver
can be depended upon to whip up outstanding dishes for the annual reunions and regular
missionary circle meetings at Beech Avenue Baptist Church, family-circle dinners and
Most housewives who cook have a specialty.
Mrs. Beaver likes to think of her green coconut
cake as something special. At any rate, it has be
come a popular favorite within the circle of her
acquaintances over the years.
But the Sales Yarn employee especially likes
to prepare main-course dishes, such as roasts,
stews, casseroles—and the meat loaf which is
featured in this article. It is Mrs. Beaver’s sug
gestion for a substantial mainstay of a noon or
evening meal during the winter months.
Meat Loaf 1 cup tomato juice
1 Vz pounds ground beef % cup minced onions
% cup quick oats, un- 2 teaspoon salt
To serve hot, lift out loaf and transfer with
spatulas to a heated platter. If it is to be served
cold, let stand for five minutes and chill before
slicing. Provides 8 average serving portions.
2 eggs lightly beaten
V4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup catchup
HEAT OVEN to 350 degrees F.
Break eggs into large bowl. Beat slightly with
fork. Add ground beef and all other ingredients
except catchup. Toss lightly until blended. Avoid
overmixing, since this tends to toughen the loaf.
Pack firmly into greased baking pan or onto
greased baking dish.
Bake (350 F.) 50 minutes to one hour.
Spread the catchup over the loaf while still
hot, if you wish to serve it while still warm.
For loaf with brown exterior, grease shallow
baking pan or glass ovenware platter. If a soft,
moist outside is preferred, bake loaf as directed
here, in greased loaf pan about 9x5x3 inches.
Pour juices from pan after baking. Turn out loaf
on cake rack and place right-side-up on heated

The Gate Of Another Year
They do me wrong who say I come no more, when once I
knock and fail to find you in;
For every day I stand outside your door and bid you wake
and rise to fight and win.
Wail not for precious chances passed away! Weep not for
golden ages on the wane!
Each night I burn the records of the day—At sunrise every
soul is born again.—^Walter Malone
