The feather trimmed hat is more
elaborate. A white plush bonnet is

are white, with a dash of pale cerise
at the tip?
A federation of men's clubs, repre
senting all of the Christian churches,
with a central body and a closely af
filiated organization, is the plan that
was suggested by David McKnight,
president of the St. Clement's Men's
club, at the get-acquainted meeting of
the First Presbyterian Men's club
meeting Tuesday night. Such an or
ganization, Mr. McKnight showed,
would be a great force for civic and
religious betterment in the city and
would furnish an environment for the
younger generation of El Pasoans who
are now boys and who are looking to
the men of the Christian churches for
The Presbyterian Men's meeting was
the first of a series of monthly meet
ings of the club that will be held dur
ing the winter. As president and prima
mover In the Men's club of St. Clem
ent's church, Mr. McKnight was invited
to talk to the Presbyterian men on the
methods employed by the St. Clement's
C1UD in geiung me line urK&uiuwu
and accomplishing the work that the
Episcopal club has been doing since
it was organized. The club president
talked for 20 minutes to the Presby
terian club in a droll, logical address,
in which he advocated the closer union
of the men of each church and the still
closer union of the men's clubs of all
the Christian churches of the city as a
f moral force in the community. There
are now two active men's clubs In the
city and a third In process of organiza
tion, he said. This would be the start
of a great "Men and Religion" move
ment in El Paso, he said, that could
accomplish great good for the elty, for
the churches and for the young men
who are now growing up.
A brief program followed the princi
pal address. Charlie Brann gave a
number of Imitations of prominent El
Pasoans. Parvin Witte" sang a solo
with piano accompaniment by Francis
Moore; Norman Walker gave a short
talk and told a story on judge F. E.
Hunter which gave Judge Hunter suf
ficient 'cause for a five-minute storytelling-
reply. Rev. C. L. Overstreet
closed the meeting with a brief talk of
.nMinrairinnt for ihe men's club
movement. T. J. Jones, chairman of
the club committee, acted as chairman
of the meeting. A buffet lunch was

As fruit cake improves with age, it is a
good plan to bake several loaves at once
enough to last through the Holiday Season.
Wrap the loaves in oiled paper, put them
in a cool place, and they will keep all' winter.
This recipe is an exceptionally good one,
and if followed carefully, you will have
cake that you will be proud to serve on any
occasion that may arise during the winter.
