charming Billy?” If so, which
school of cooking does she follow?
You know there is one cherry pie
made by putting the raw, seeded
cherries on the bottom crust in the
pan, pouring’ on lots of sugar, add
ing a top crust or latticed strips of
dough and baking. This pie is de
licious, but run-ny and is prone to
bubble over the sides of the pan
and roam about the inside of the
Then there’s the cherry pie made
by beginning at above and mixing a
few spoonfuls of plain flour with
the sugar before pouring it over
the fruit, and also putting in bits
of butter. This one has a jellified
taste that some dislike, but looks
fine when served.
Some cooks bake little individual
pastry shells (on the outside of
muffin tins that arc* then turned
upside down) and fill them just
before serving with cherries that
have been cooked slightly with the
sugar These are the most parti
fied of all especially when wearing
turbans of whipped cream.
And then—l am speaking now
with deep emotion—there’s
cherry cobbler or one-crust, deep
dish pie. You put all the cherries
you can spare into a baking pan.
forget about how much sugar you
have already used that week and
put in plenty. Either put on the
one crust at once or bring the cher
ries to a boil first. And don’t let
that crust be a frail, fragile crea
tion that can't bear handling; make
it thick to balance fruit. Sprinkle
a little more sugar over the crust
and bake slowly. Serve it upside
down with or without cream. It is
the cherry pie for those who toil
and whose eating is something dif
ferent from a manner-ful interlude
punctuated by dainty fixings.

Recorder’s Court
“The frog went a courting, he
did,” but in this instance it chanced
to be four boys who jusit could not
resist the urge to go fishing eveff
if it was closed season. Our sym
pathy was with the boys. They
were Looney Buffalo, Lonnie Ed
dins, L. L. Morgan and Jimmie
Bullock. They plead guilty and the
judge fined them SI.OO and the
costs. Just in case they failed to
pay the poor state for the sport of
feeding little fish, they were to go
to jail the common jail, mind
you, and stay till the fine was paid
or otherwise disposed of. Whether
it was the dollar or the boys to be
“otherwise disposed of” we do not
know. Morgan and Bullock paid
their dollar fine but the others
gave notice of appeal. Now a dol
lar is not much to pay for fishing
' when one wants to, but you see with
the boys, it was the principle of the

Wo don not know why, for he

mitted hat he had been caught
driving recklessly. He was given
60 days to work off his excess en
ergy on the state roads, or pay
$25.00 and costs and also be good
for a year. And, probably in order
to give him time to build up will
power to resist reckless driving,
the court ordered him not to oper
ate his car in the state till Nov. 1.
Millard Jones, “one of the Jones
boys,” was accused of carrying a
concealed weapon and admitted it
to t he court. Judgment: 60 days
on the roads or pay a fine of $50.00
and costs. Next time he rad bet
ter play safe with a soap pistol like
Dwight Beard’s.
Flora Brantley who had the mis
fortune to run into a car driven
by Judge Barnhill’s son and hurt a
lady passenger, was found guilty of
reckless driving. Prayer for judg
ment was continued till the July
term of court to see whether the
young woman recovers or not. She
is still in a hospital.
Robt. High was charged with as*-
sault on his wife He was found
guilty, but the order of the court
was suspended provided he behaves
for a year. It must have been a
sort of mutual affair between him
and his wife since the judge let him
off so lightly.
Hurley Horton had been playing
the bad, bad man. He borrowed
without consent the rifle of anoth
er. He got in jail and like Popeye
walked out. He had to reurn the
gun to the owner and work on the
roads for 8 months, thus losing the
gun permanently and his liberty
for a season. Then 8 months more
were added to the road sentence
for jail breaking. He will get
double credit for his services to
the state, as t he two 8 month sen
tences will run concurrently. The
state is both liberal and generous
to its, citizens at times.

Did you ever read a paper thor
oughly ? Or are you one of those
individuals who gather bits here
and there from the headlines, read
ing a line occasionally?
I read an article in a periodical
recently which extended its length
over some ten pages. Boiled down,
twisted and double-twisted, the
entire thing said, “Some people can
stay longer in an hour than others
can in a week.”
When you read of the Hinden
burg disaster, did you remember
an article of a few months ago
bringing forth the fact that Rus
sia isi the only other country in the
world besides the United States,
in which helium gas is found?
If my memory fails me not, (if
it does, these notes don’t) the larg
est helium gas well in the world is
located near Amarillo, Texas, and
incidentally, is owned by the De
partment of the Interior.
No helium gas produced in this
country can be sold or exported
without the approval of the Presi
dent and the War, Navy and Inter
ior Secretaries- (Some modifica
tions of this are being considered.)
We read daily of aviation acci
dents. We speak of how dangerous
flying is. Never the less, commer-
I cial air lines carry on an average
| of about 90,000 passengers* a month
and out of every 16,000 transported
only 5.8 are killed. That of course,
is the average. Safer than the bath

Seeing a trailer on the road while
commuting this morning, brings to
mind that there will be some 400,-
000 trailer units on the road this
season. Most trailers are worth
more than the cars towing them.
The canned food companies cer
taily ought to hand over a bonus
check to the 4,000 regularly recog
nized manufacturers of auto trail
ers in this country.
Imagine the fun to be had travel
ing in a trailer. You can buy Irish
potatoes in North Carolina, Peel
them in South Carolina, Throw the
peelings out the window in Georgia
and eat them for supper in Florida.
I can remember when a trailer
was something they ran in movie
houses for advertising.
The can opener goes on a vaca
tion with the rest of the family.
You can borrow a pat of butter
in Texas and pay it back in Kansas.
