Eating Fish Keeps Body
Slim, Authority Declares
Many people already know that
fleh helps keep one slim while main
taining the body’s strength. Now no
less an authority than Victor H.
Lindlahr, president of the National
lVutrition society, backs up that fact
ta his popular book, “Eat—and Re
“Fish is an excellent food, just
loaded with food minerals from the
•ea,” the author tells in his work.
11 We can set aside heavy-handed |
custom, too, and serve fish on other
days than Friday. Such a worthy
Jood deserves to be eaten more fre
A study of any good calorie table
reveals that fish, as a class, is low
ta this factor which is considered
the main reason for creating fat. I
Yet, the Fishery Council reports, it
has all the body building elements
which keep one strong. This is
due to the liberal amount of min
eral, protein and vitamin matter in
all fish and shellfish.
Weight is not the only factor con
sidered in “Eat—and Reduce.” Slug- j
gishness usually goes with over- :
weight and here again fish is good
insurance against such a condition.
R is light, is easily taken care of j
by the ordinary digestive juices and i
so is ideal for those who must keep
active right after meals.
Swine Men Use Records
The best swine producers keep
accords to determine superior pro
ducing ability of sows and boars.
Production testing of brood sows is
me of the most successful methods
used in Illinois, according to H. G.
Russell, extension live stock special
ist at the University of Illinois.
Most of the swine breed associa
tions now have programs for recog
nizing superior sows and boars,
litters are usually marked, when
tarrowed, for future identification
mad the birth weight of the litter is
accorded. Weights are again taken
m individual pigs at weaning time,
•r 56 days of age.
Since this is probably the best sin
measure of a sow’s ability to pro
duce, the weaning weight and the
dize of the litter are important. A
good standard for an aged sow is
eight pigs, each of which should
weigh 35 pounds or more at 56 days
of age. A good standard for a gilt
ta a litter of seven pigs weighing
95 pounds each at weaning time.
For a nice breakfast, serve bread
sliced for toast sauteed in bacon fat
tastead. Serve the eggs on this with
bacon, of course.

If you have a reputation, why not
live up to it? Thus spoke Sergeant
Ash Killmon, of Parksley, Va., as he
reminded his callers that this was the
southland where a certain degree of
hospitality was expected.
Last week, a couple about thirty
years of age as guessing goes, ap
proached the Parksley officer for a
place to sleep. Funds were not plen
tiful, they admitted and when they
got back to Philadelphia they would
want a few pennies to launch out on
their matrimonial voyage.
“Yes, we’ve just been married, and
on our way home,” they said.
“Well, now if that’s the case and|
to help the cause along,” drawled the'
Parksley officer, who posseses an 1
amount of cordiality himself, “comej
right along with me,” and he carried J
them to the jail house where they j
spent the night.
Now the Parksley jail is nothing
to be sneezed at. With a spic and
span new building, it is said to have
the accommodations of an “Asterbilt”
hotel. Anyway it has gained a wide
reputation for its modem appoint
ments, the sergeant admitted, “and
we do have frequent callers.”
“Yes, sir, that’s the way we do
things in Parksley,” the officer de
clared in a passing shot.
The following letter was received
by the Democrat from Senator Dud
ley G. Roe, of Queen Anne’s County,
and is self explanatory:
March 12, 1941
Worcester Democrat
Pocomoke City, Maryland
I am handing you a copy of Senate
Bill No. 264 which passed the Senate
March 11 by a vote of 20 to 8 and
also a statement by Governor O’Con
or in reference to the State Tax on
Real Estate.
For your information every bit of
the State Tax on Real Estate goes
to pay bonded debt and interest on
bonds. My bill would forbid the is
suance of any further bond issues
after January 1, 1943, which are a
lien on real estate. When the pres
ent State Bonded Debt is paid, there
will be no State Tax on Real Estate
at all, and any additional bonds
would have to be paid off and retired
by income from some other source.
I consider this the most construc
tive measure introduced at Annap
olis in my 17 years in the General
Assembly of Maryland.
Yours very sincerely,
Dudley G. Roe
The bill is too lengthy to be re
printed here, but Mr. Roe’s letter ful
ly explains the import of the meas
The following is the statement by
Governor Herbert R. O’Conor:
In pursuance of the hope express
ed by me several days ago, that ul
timately the bonded indebtedness of
the State might be wiped out entire

of the State tax on Real Estate, I
have gone into the question to ascer
tain facts relative to such levies
throughout the country.
According to information at hand,
eighteen states levy no Real Estate
Tax, while six others have a relative
ly small tax. The eighteen with no
Real Estate Tax are: Rhode Island,
New York, New Jersey, Oklahoma,
Vermont, Arkansas, Ohio, Florida,
Oregon, Massachusetts, Illinois, Vir

March 17 To 24 Maryland Mer
chants To Introduce Ambu
lance Corps Fabrics
Governor Herbert R. O’Conor has!
proclaimed the week of March 17-24
“British Aid Week” in support of
Maryland retail merchants who will
join in a nation-wide introduction of
British American Ambulance Corps
fabrics to the public starting March
17. Urging all citizens to “lend all
possible assistance in the campaign”,
Governor O’Conor voiced the belief
that “aid will be forthcoming not|
only during the campaign week but
as long as our sister democracy
needs such help in her gallant fight.”
The corps is sponsoring fabrics
bearing forty different patterns,
which cleverly and beautifully make 1
use of the traditional symbols of ]
Great Britain. They have been made
into ready-to-wear merchandise, in
cluding dresses, turbans, beach wear, I
shoes, handbags, and pajamas, and'
will also be sold in piece goods.
The plan is unique because the 10
per cent of all fabric sales which goes
to the corps for its humanitarian
cause is not added to the retail price
of the merchandise but is paid by
the manufacturer. It is expected
that the corps will receive more than
SIOO,OOO to carry on its war relief
projects, which include the purchase
of flying amphibian ambulances, mot
or ambulances for Greece and Africa
and vitamin capsules for British chil
Governor O’Conor telegraphed Wil
leave this source of taxation solely in
the hands of these sub-divisions.
I can see no upsetting of the pres
ent balance of taxation if such a goal
is attained, because all owners of real
estate, like all the other citizens of
j our State, will be called upon to pay
whatever other taxes are found neces
sary for the conduct of the State and
its efficient administration.
liam V. C. Ruxton, president of the*
corps as follows:
“Maryland has whole-heartedly'
joined the long list of states active
ly participating in measures to relieve
British distress. As Governor of the
State I heartily endorse the “British
Aid Week” and urgently request our
citizens to lend all possible assistance
in the campaign to be conducted from
March 17th to 24th.
“Knowing the sentiments of Mary
landers, and realizing the dire need
of many unfortunate English men,
women and children, I firmly believe
aid will be forthcoming not only dur-,
ing the campaign week but as long as
our sister democracy needs such help
in her gallant fight. This is a real
opportunity for all to show materially |
our oft-spoken admiration.”
Milford and state police have been
requested to search for Mildred Di
ana Wintjen, 13-year-old daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Louis E. Wintjen, who
reside one mile north of Lincoln, Del.,
on the old state road.
The girl according to the mother,;
Mrs. Lillian Wintjen, has been miss

morning, March 6.
According to the mother, the girl
started to school in Lincoln between
8 and 9 A. M. ( and hasn’t been heard

She was picked up and brought to
Milford by a passing motorist. Al
