THE prophet Jeremiah declared (Lamentations 3:26), “It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salva tion of the Lord.” The Psalmist wrote in similar vein (Psalms 42:11): "Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disqui eted within me? hope thou in God: for 1 shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.” Often we may be tempted to mix with our human hopes a fairly siz able sprinkling of faltering faith in good, instead of leaving righteous desires to be fulfilled by unchanging divine Principle. If We allow our thinking to be whirled here and there by the fluctuating winds of hu man chance and change, hope is likely to prove futile and unavail ing. When hope is anchored in the unchanging law of God, which or ders all things aright, we are not confronted with disappointment or loss. Vacillating thought allied to hu man will power may involve hope or hopelessness, elation or despair. It amounts to nothing in the way of right achievement, hut is likely to lead into a maze of bewilderment. Certain it is that God always sup plies the human need, and the cup that “runneth over” is always at hand. If we reach the point where we truly understand that God is the unlimited source of all good, and that He knows what we need, we see the futility of human planning and decide to leave our right de sires to God’s tender care. . . . Man, God’s image, is never bound by unsatisfied longings, but is al ways complete, joyous, free.

Treasury Department Insect Commandos “Insect commandos” are safe guarding vital crops of the American tropics, according to C. P. Clausen, department of agriculture entomolo gist. Biological control of insect pests is an essential factor in the widespread migration of crops to the fertile Middle American lands. Im porting natural enemies to feed on insect pests is cheaper than other methods of control and requires only a relatively short time to show def inite results. The American tropics with their equable climates furnish the parasites extremely favorable growing conditions. One of the most successful biological control projects was the introduction of the citrus blackfly into Cuba and other Middle American areas. The vedalia beetle has been colonized with remarkable results in -Cuba, Puerto Rico, Mex ico and Guatemala. Repair Purse Had you thought of remaking or repairing a favorite purse that is beginning to show wear? The first indications of shabbiness and wear usually appear at the corners and ends. To conceal wear at outside seams, if the leather or fabric purse is stitched outside, rip the seam, •fold the worn places in and, after taking a deeper seam, restitch by hand. If the boxed ends are baggy, the end sections should be removed and pressed into shape. Grained leath er can be pressed with a damp cloth, but smooth leather will water spot, so it should be pressed dry. If pressing fails to eliminate the bag giness, replace the ends with gros grain ribbon or faille. When purse seams are stitched inside and the purse is not clamped into a frame, seams can sometimes be ripped from the inside, but if a purse is seamed inside and clamped into the frame, it is best not to attempt outside re pairs. —• * tieftwi o American, British and • Russian armies are not llkey to have one head, but they all will get their feet junder the same table. thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine” (Luke 15:31), and it stands forever unchanged. When we perceive more clearly that we are never pawns of variable, unpre dictable influences, but that we ex press the one Mind in every activity, life begins to take on a lovelier, more satisfying aspect. We see that each individual has his own place, which no one else can fill, his own God-appointed work, which no one else can do, and certain reward for righteous work done in accordance with God’s will. . . . In “Miscellaneous Writings” Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, gives comforting assurance that God al ways hears His children, where she says (p. 81), “In the desolation of human understanding, divine Love hears and answers the human call for help.” . . . The realization that one can al ways be alone with God in his in nermost thinking, lifts one high above the mist and confusion of material sense, into the calm and glory of God’s tender love. The frail human hope that sometime, some where, somehow, things will be bet ter disappears as one understands that right here and now, at this very moment, eternal Mind is caring for us all. This is the truth which, perceived and acknowledged, frees from suffering and limitation, from the discouragement of unfulfilled human hopes, and from all that to human sense seems afflictive. There is one unbroken round of existence, forever perfect and harmonious, and therein dwell the children of God. Let us place our hope in eternal Mind, daily acknowledging that this one Mind is no less than the very presence of God.— The Christian Sci ence Monitor.

Treasury Department Penicillin Cures Plant Gall Crown gall disease, a condition in plants that resembles cancer in animals, is cured by penicillin. This result was achieved by Drs. J. G. Brown and Alice M. Boyle of the Arizona agricultural experiment station at Tucson. The gall is a large tumor-like growth, associated with an infection by the germ Phytomas tumefaciens. When the penicillin was injected in the plant it was without effect, but when the tumor was punctured in many places with a needle and wrapped in penicillin - soaked cotton the complete destruction of the gall fol lowed while healthy tissues were not affected, the Arizona scientists re port. The germ mentioned is a tre mendous producer of biotin, a pow erful growth factor that is a mem ber of the vitamin B complex, which probably upsets the normal growth of nearby cells and causes them to engage in unrestricted cancer-like growth. Wash Vegetables As soon as you bring the vegeta bles into the kitchen wash them. If you do not use them immediately put the green ones in the refrigerator hydrator, or in bags for crisping. Vegetables such as turnips, beets and squash, which do not require re frigeration, should be kept in a cool, ventilated place. The mineral and vitamin content of vegetables is con served by hastening their prepara tion. Don’t allow the vegetables to stand in water before putting,them on to cook, and use the least pos sible amount of water in cooking. The amount of water to use will de pend upon the particular type of vegetable—that is—whether it is mild or strong flavored, the type of cooking utensil; and the kind of heat. Cook the vegetable only until ten der, and then serve as soon as cooked. But such cooking does take a watchful eye and meal planning management. o Is It true there are more cigarettes in the homes than the cigar stores? THE MIDLAND JOURNAL, FRIDAY, MAY 11, 1045 Paprika and Chili Spices Contain Some Food Value Paprika and chili are exceptions to the rule that spices furnish flavor but not food value. Spices generally are used in such small quantities that they could contribute little in food value, even if they had it. Most of them rate low in all nutrients. Paprika, however—the red spice from a mild-flavored pod pepper— has long been known to contribute important amounts of vitamin A to Hungarian diets in which it is used lavishly. Even after drying and powdering, paprika rates high in vi tamin A. In recent years chili pow der has increased in popularity gen erally and now stands about tenth on the list of spices according to the amount consumed. Recent tests at the New Mexico Experiment station show that chili may contribute both vitamin A and vitamin C to those diets in which it is used generously. Fresh and canned chili peppers of fer the most in both vitamins. Dried red chili proved to be rich in A but lacking in C. Likewise, sauces made from dried red pepper offer A but not C. Sauces made from the pure pulp of the pepper are richer in vitamins than those that are diluted with water. ■ i Using Recipes Requires Knowledge of Terms A good recipe insures a success ful baked product only if the one who uses it can interpret the direc tions correctly. Here are some of the terms common to pastry recipes: Blend: to mix ingredients thor oughly; cream: to manipulate but ter with a spoon or beater until it is soft and smooth; stir: to mix in gredients with a circular motion to blend them; beat: to lift the mixture in a bowl over and over, using a regular, rhythmic motion; fold in: to blend ingredients by placing a spoon or spatula down through the mixture, turning it under the mass, and bringing it straight up to make a fold. Ingredients are folded in to prevent the loss of air already in troduced into the mixture, and cut in: to blend fat with flour by cutting the fat into little pieces with two knives, a fork, or a pastry blender. Other terms include: scald: to heat just below the boiling point. To scald milk, heat it in the top part of a double boiler until it is foamy on top; batter: a mixture of flour and liquid that is thin enough to beat; dough: a mixture of flour and liquid that is thick enough to knead or roll out. Pruning Orchard Apples and pears are trained to their natural shape by leaving six to eight main scaffold limbs. Small trees usually do not require any cut ting back, while larger ones should be headed at a height of about four feet when set out. The lowest scaf fold limb should be about two feet from the ground. Pruning of one and two-year-old trees during the dor mant season consists mainly of thin ning out thq smaller branches and moderately butting back the larger branches just above an outside branch or bud. Trees of bearing age which have been properly trained to form the desired shape will need only light annual prun ing. For the first few years after the trees begin bearing, priming should consist of a light thinning of the branches, removal of any dead, diseased or crossing branches and a moderate heading back of the larger branches. Older trees will re quire heavier pruning to stimulate the growth of new fruiting shoots and to maintain a well-balanced tree. Improve Synthetic One of the shortcomings of present synthetic rubber tires has been their deterioration at the high tem peratures which result from moder ately fast speeds. To aid in overcom ing this, a rubber reported to show much greater heat resistance than the standard buna or GR-S (Gov ernment Rubber - Styrene) synthetic rubber has been developed by re placing the styrene with a styrene chlorine combination. Among other advantages reported for chlorinated styrene rubber are greater resist ance to tearing and easier process ing, although stiffness at low tem peratures is said to be more of a problem than with GR-S. The new rubber is expected to cost only a few cents per pound more than GR-S. A moderate-sized government plant for its production is said to be planned. Adjust Eye An eye adapted to brightly illumi nated white walls is hardly in a right condition to examine a piece of grayish metal, black leather, or tan nish wood. Two alternatives are of fered byway of improvement. If the general lighting of the interior is ample, then the walls must surely be toned down, so that the conspicu ous thing within the room will be the task and not the environment. Or if the illumination is weak, supple mentary lighting may have to be in stalled—the walls left as they are, white or otherwise. If the interior is cold and vaulty, the psychological benefits of a warm tone (ivory, buff) should by all means be capitalized. Should the working operation in volve high temperatures, then the colors to introduce are cool ones (blues and greens). Some rata desert a sinking ship, History of Sulu Islands Colored by Ade Comedy War has brought the Sulu Archi pelago in the Philippines to serious public notice, but a generation ago it had entertaining recognition in the United States through George Ade’s comic opera “The Sultan of Sulu.” The sultan was pictured as an amus ing semi-savage, a not too accurate idea that showed little regard by the writer for the fact that the sul tan effectively ruled hundreds of is lands and part of British North Bor neo. The sujjan partly acknowledged the temporal sovereignty of the United States in 1899, and gave com plete recognition in 1915. He was the spiritual leader of the Moham medan Moros, a member of the Philippine senate, an aviation en thusiast, and traveled in the United States. From the American gov ernment he annually received about $3,000. He had his own flag, and was royally received by British of ficials on his visits to North Bor neo. After the death of Sultan Jama lul Kiram II in June, 1936, without heir, his niece and adopted daugh ter, Princess Hadji, Piandao, trans ferred in April, 1940, many of the islands to the Commonwealth of the Philippines. Title to the sultanate became a matter of dispute, and stirred conjecture that it also might be tranferred to the Philippine gov ernment. Waterproof Work Shoes To Add to Wear Waterproofing of work shoes will add an appreciable amount of time to their wear. Application of neats foot oil, tallow, wool grease, cod oil, castor oil or a mixture of these can be applied quickly and easily at home. Simply spread the warm grease on the upper part of the shoe with a cloth, and then rub it in thor oughly with the palm of the hand. To grease leather soles and the seams which join the soles to the uppers, place the shoes in a shal low pan containing enough grease to cover the soles. If the heels are rubber, let them extend over the outer edge of the pan so that the grease will not touch them. Rub ber heels and soles should never be oiled because grease softens rub ber. The life of dress shoes as well as work shoes can be prolonged by oil ing the soles. Just be careful not to get the oil on the uppers, for most oiled leather can not be polished. Castor oil is one of the few oils that will permit polishing after it has been applied to leather. Glue Method Latest For Washing Woolens Believe it or not, the glue method is the latest one for satisfactory washing of woolens at home and comes in handy when dry cleaners are rushed. ‘ It is particularly good for garments which are generally soiled sweaters, trousers, snow suits, dresses. If there are grease stains, these should first be removed with a dry cleaner before washing. Prepare a wash solution by add ing one tablespoon of good strong liquid glue, such as carpenters use, to every quart of warm soft water. Have enough water to cover the garment. Make sure that the glue is completely dissolved in the water. Step two consists of folding the garment and laying it in the water, being careful to avoid unnecessary creases. Next, allow the garment to stand in this solution for 20 minutes without handling. Do not rub or scrub garment. At the end of the soaking period, a soft brush may be used on crease of collar or edges of cuffs if necessary, providing the material is stroked in the direction of the nap or grain. Make a sec ond solution while the garment is soaking in the first one, using one teaspoon of glue for every three quarts of warm water. Remove the garment from the first solution, press out excess water in a towel and place garment in new solution. Let stand again without handling for 20 minutes. After this comes a rinse in one of two clear warm waters, absorbing excess moisture in towels. Do not wring. Per Capita Income Doubles Since 1939 Average income per capita more than doubled throughout the United States during the five year period from 1938 to 1943, rising from ssll to an all-time high of $1,031 last year, or 52 per cent more than dur ing the “boom” year of 1929, the Federation of Tax Administrators re ports. The ssll figure represents the so called business “recession” of 1938, which brought income payments down to the 1931 level. Highest income payments on a per capita basis in 1938 were received by persons in the District of Colum bia, the payments averaging sl,Oll. Among the states, they ranged from a low of $194 in Mississippi to highs of $786 in Nevada, $765 in New York, $747 in New Jersey. In 1943, per capita iricome pay ments ranged from $484 in Missis sippi to $1,452 in Connecticut. (In California, Nevada, Washington and Delaware, average income was high er in 1943 than in New York, New Jersey and the District of Colum bia.) §nd others try to turn into field mice.

SUGAR CALLED MAINSTAY OF ARMY COMBAT RATION Sugar is the mainstay of the Army Combat Ration and of practically all Army Field Rations because of its high concentration and its value as a quick energy food. A typical “C” ration contains five lumps of sugar for one meal. In addition to the su gar furnished with a meal in a Com bat Ration there may be five pieces of hard candy Sugar is aslo essential <to preserving many foods for storage in shipments overseas, including pickles, preserved fruit, sugared dates and some meats. About the only thing Germany has left to call its own is what does not belong to it. E.
