FRIDAY. DECEMBER IT. 1!MH
An Efficient Commissioner
We knew the day that liuvenv.r Cherry
named I) Reeves Noland ;is H:hvav Cnm
missiur.er t I" the 10th district that a v ise
ckoiee had been made. We wet e aware !
the fact that Mr. Noland knew the !:; ri.1
compi isiim 14 counties from one end to tp.e
other. We knew too that he u .'.s a .r;fu.i
man. having had a lot of expertCiVt. :: h::
ness. fiiiininL; and engineer:!',-:-
Mr. Noland had hardly taken the oath "t
office before he began a comprehens;ve study
of the road needs of the 14 cmin.'ies ami held
lone conferences with the engineers of the
district. Following that. Mr. , land vis.'ed
each county, talked to school ir.en. and busi
ness leaders, and saw first hand th" most
urgent needs for ceUini: people o! the d'N'"! ict
out of the mud.
The results of this energetic ; : :a:n ..
Mr.'ifloland and his associates in the engineer
ing deportment, resulted in Charles Ross, for
mer chairman of the highway e miri'ssii o.
to make this special report to irrr
elecft Scott recently: "The school h;is ro;v;s
in the 10th district are in the best condition
of any district in the state. All the i ; use. I
by school buses have cither been covered
with crushed stone and gravel, or the con
tract let for work to be underwa" by Jjruarv
first. Thosa in charge of the work (Mr No
land) put their efforts in ce'tinr' the peop'e
out of the raud first, instead of build::;, fewe:
miles of black top or hih cost roads."
Mr. Ross made a personal s;.i vcv .if the
road system of the state in order to yjve Mr.
Scott first-hand information as to 'he exist
We have no idea what historian mi cht
write about Governor Cherry's administra
tion in the years to come, but we know that
the people of the 10th district will a aw re
member his administration as the era ' ' .1 n
he appointed an efficient Hn-hwa" Cormr.is
sioner that tt us out of the mud. '
Let us repeat attain that Governor Cherrv
made a wise choice in naming Mr. N'o'and as
highway commissioner. The entire tate. and
more particularly this area, have' boon :erv
edand served well by his hard work and
careful planning. There remain- a lot of
needed work to be done, and this new-paper
feels that Governor-elect Scott could do no
better than retain' Mr. Noland on the high
way' commission under his. administration
which begins January 6th.
A Community Sing
For several years prior to the war, this
community enjoyed every Christmas season,
what was known as a "community sing".
Several hundred citizens met at a theatre
or church, and there for an hour, wtould en
joy the fellowship of singing the famous
The event was not commercialized in any
way everything was free, and all services
were donated to the cause of getting together
and singing. Many a person have remarked
time and time again that this one event did
more to instill the Christmas spirit in them
than anything else.
So far we have not heard of any program
like'this being planned for this holiday sea
Porhaps we are all too busv to take time off
and participate in such an event then per
ha:; - we had rather listen to Christmas music
evr the air. and from our several church
t! o than to hear ourselves sing.
i'hi.- is not a rebuke for not having the
" c .!-1 unity sing" this year. We merely call
n vour attention, and with the few side
1 envrks that it was once an enjoyable occa
:i hue. Maybe we have outgrown such
public programs. Anyway, it does bring back
tonil memories of yesteryear, and such cheer
ful memories seem to come to the surface
more readily during the Christmas season.
No doubt that is why we remembered the
community sings that took place years ago.

Can a mother's disapproval

Answer: Nothing does so more
effectually. For the love that al
most any man gives his wife is in
some sense "transferred" to her
from his mother, and when she
refuses to let him go, it's a tare

with the last of. these that psy

of the bad shots a "fairly good

flll RCHILLS FEARS
Win'ton Churchill tells the
House of Commons, "We should en
deavor to reach a settlement with
Russia before they have the atomic
bomb as well as the Americans."
VV'e all can appreciate the former
Prime Minister's concern and bis
recognition of the urgency of a
settlement before the Soviet Union
has atomic bombs ready for use.
But have not the United States
and British governments earnestly
and vigilantly endeavored for the
last three years to "reach a settle
ment with Russia"?
Mr. Churchill knows, or ought
lo know, that it has been impos
sible except to at?ree to any and
all terms proposed by the Soviet
Union without regard to our own
interests or the welfare of other
And yet it must be admitted that
the Conservative leader has ample
ground for saying that only in
reaching a settlement with Russia
"resides the best hope of avoiding
a third world war."

WASHINGTON Whether it's
Mrs. Truman's "Ozark Puddini;" or
something called "stuffed monkey "
that you want to whip rip lor the
family, you'll find the ricipc in a
unique GOO-page cook book due lo
come out in January.
It's the new Congressional Club
Cook Book, latest edition of a vol
ume first published by the congres
sional wives' organization hack in
1927. In addition to some SO re
cipes from foreign countries sub
mitted by wives of diplomats, the
book contains hundreds of recipes
contributed by wives of cabinet
members. Supreme Court justices,
congressmen, former congressmen
and governors of states.
The First Lady, who joined the
club when her husband was sen
ator, has written a foreword for
the book and contributed her fav
orite recipe too. Signed simply
Bess W. Truman. Missouri", are
the following directions fur mak
ing Ozark Pudding, a dish which
features chopped nuts and apples
and is served with whipped cream
or ice cream:
Mrs. Truman did not let the in
gredients first. She just pilches
right in "One egg and three
fourths cup sugar, beaten together
for a long time until very smooth.
'She underlines the 'very'.. Mix
two tablespoons of flour, one and
one-fourth teaspoon of baking pow
der. nne-ei(!h'th teaspoon of salt.
Add lo eg:',-sugar mixture, add one
h.ilf cup chopped nuts, one-half
eup chopped apple, one teaspoon
v,,nilla. Bake in greased tin in a
:jfiO-dcgrec oven fur 3.r minutes."
Members of the club take pride
in the loreign recipe section of the
book TIkv feel they can help
spread a bit of international good
will by the exchange of recipes,
says Mrs. Lawrence H. Smith, wife
of the congressman from Wiscon
sin and chairman of the cook book
The recipe for stuffed monkey,
incidentally, was submitted by Mrs.
Norman J. O. Makin, wife of the
Aurtralian Ambassador. I called
the Embassy to ask Mrs. Makin to
please tell me how you caught the
monkey in the first place and then
10 give me the recipe. I here was
long and hearty laughter at the
other end of the line,
