AUSTIN, March 29. </Pi—Referring
to heart balm as •‘legalized biack
Representative Helen Moore
’ll Texas City introduced a bill in
'he house Friday to bar suits for
Breach of promise and alienation of
The bill was identical with legisla
tion passed recently by legislatures
of Indiana and New York. Mrs
Moore, a housewife of 52, is the only
woman member of the legislature.
“It is not my idea and I’m taking
no credit for originality,” Mrs. Moore
•aid. “I’m glad to follow the lead of
the lady in the Indiana legislature
and believe a quick curb should be
placed on suits of this kind.”
The bill also would bar civil suits
for criminal conversation and for
•eduction of females over 21 years
old. It would be unlawful for any
person or attorney to file or threaten
to file any pleading seeking to re
cover on a cause of action abolished
by the bill. The designation of a co
respondent by name in • divorce
petition also would be prohibited.
All contracts entered into after
passage of the bill in payment of
any claim growing out of the cause
of action so carried would be de
clared void and causes of action to
enforce such contracts would be
made unlawful.
Violations of principal provisions
of the law would be punishable by
a fine of from $100 to $1,000 and im
prisonment from one to five years.
Attorneys in divorce suits would
be prohibited from asking questions
calculated to disclose the identity
. of a third person charged as co
respondent although the court would
be given discretion to hear the testi
mony in chambers.
Sixty days would be allowed to
commence action on grounds accru
ing under existing laws and if not
filed within that time would be for
ever barred.

it creates a new impetus for bet
ter planned meals for the family,
perhaps—a new enthusiasm for the
real, serious job of home making.
It is a pleasure to see all the little
time-saving gadgets—the newest
utensils and dishes as they are used
for the various foods in the kitchen
If we have plenty of these lovely
utensils we will not have to say, like
Telemachus. “Lend me, I pray you.
the sauce pans in which you boiled
your beans."
One of the surprises of the school
session (which turned out to be a

process of her cooking. It was from
the Morton Salt company of Chica
go, wishing her a happy and success
ful session for her “Happy Kitchen"
In Brownsville.
The following ladies have been
the lucky ones thus far in winning
the dishes prepared by Mrs. Yates:

to get the same trouble.

*/)«« to insufficient “bulk” in
Tests show Kellogg's All-Bran
provides “bulk” to aid elimination.
All-Bran is also rich in vitamin B
and iron.
The “bulk” in All-Bran is gen
tle. It resists digestion better titan
( the fiber in fruits and vegetables,
so it is often more effective.
Isn’t this food safer than risking
patent medicines? Two tablespoon
fuls of All-Bran daily are usually
sufficient. If seriously constipated,
use with each meal. See your doo
tor, if you do not get relief.
Use as a cereal, or in
cooking. Sold by ail gro- wHJ

nounced Friday that the government
had resigned and that he would re

OKMULGEE, Okla.. March 29 —
Gen. Hugh Johnson s senatorial
ambitions—if he has any—were laid
aside temporarily Friday as he
prepared a final blast at Father
Coughlin to be given Saturday night
over the radio.
This is going to dispose of the
controversy," Johnson said of his
reply to the Detroit priest.
The farmer Blue Eagle chief
didn't care to talk about what he
was going to say. In fact he didn't
care to talk about many things—
particularly whether he is going to
run for the senate against Senator
T. P. Gore next fall.
Johnson's announcement Friday
that he was coming back to Okla
homa to live gave credence to the
report that he will seek the sena
Friday his answer was still "no,"
with the reservation that “I have
the right to change my mind any
time I please."

Gore, from Washington sent a

HARLINGEN. March 39. — Th*
Valley has only a little more than
100 carload* of citrus fruit left on
the trees and still to be shipped
this season. It was estimated hero
Friday following a meeting of fed*
era] inspectors to discuss plans
for the windup of the season.
The 1935 season has been cut
short, due to Mexican fruit fly
I infestations, and will come to a
clone at midnight. April 2. This
leaves only four more harvesting
days. The fruit may be stored for
a time after being taken from
the trees, the only requirement
i being that It shall be removed from
the trees.
A careful inspection of trees
throughout the Vaf/ey be made
as soon as the season closes, to
| see that all fruit lias bene removed.
A birds beak grows continually,
but constant use keeps wearing tt
I back as fast as It grows.
