This, That, and
The Other
The father of a good-looking
sixteen-year-old boy told me this
of him recently, his expression a
queer mixture of bewilderment,
amusement and exasperation: “I
just can’t understand it. The phone
rings and he answers and talks a
• few minutes. Then he asks, ‘May
I have the car tonight’? I reply
that he cannot and he repeats what
I have said. I get the idea that he
will be at home after supper. But
pretty soon a horn sounds and out
he rushes, the girl having gotten
her father’s car and having come
for him. Off they go; I don’t
• know where.”
He shook his head, repeating, “I
just can’t understand it.”
Nor can I.
• It is always a pleasure to receive
helpful suggestions and tested re
cipes for this paper; and the fol
lowing from Mrs. Baylus Whitley
at Siler City is gladly given space.
Anything that is friendly to two

children and others besides me will

Green Tomato Mincemeat.
One peck green tomatoes, two
tablespoons salt, one cup suet,
chopped fine, two tablespoons cin
namon, two tablespoons grated
nutmeg, five pounds sugar, two
pounds raisins, one cup vinegar and
two tablespoons ground cloves.
Chop the tomatoes fine, pour off
juice. Scald tomatoes twice and
drain; add sugar, salt and suet:
Boil together until well cooked.
When cold add vinegar and spices.
Put away in crocks. To use bake
between two crusts. Serve as you
would mince pie.
P. S. Sometimes I add a few ap
ples (chopped in small pieces) to
this recipe. This mince meat used
with whole wheat bread makes a
delicious sweet sandwich. It will
keep unsealed, but when I put it
in open jars I usually pour melted
paraffin over it.

ABC News
Competition seems so great end
not from bootleggers but other
stores of the same sort, that our
local ABC store does not seem to
be doing a “land-slide” business.
Some of our citizens prefer buying
their liquor elsewhere. A small boy
pasing the store one night said he
did not see anybody there except
some colored women.
We passed by this week and took
a peep inside. All we saw was one
clerk sitting comfortably, a white
woman standing at one end of the
counter and two colored women
standing at the other.
A young man who now has a
good job came into the shop about
10:30 o’clock on a recent night. His
breath smelled like he had just
popped out of a whiskey barrel. I
1 wonder how long be will have that
good job.
1 In 18 days of actual selling the
! local store has sold liquor to the
’ amount of $3114.00, an average of
$178.00 a day.
