At 3:30 a football game was beg in
between the Gold and lilue team of
the university. Several oi the Peacock |
students had never before seen a foot-
ball game, so of course they enjoyed
the game. The group left the campus
at four o'clock to return to Peacock:

ASPRRMONT — PEACOCK
Denton, April 27— Blouses—tailor-
ed ones, fluffy ones, loud ones, do
mure ones, but at any rate your
wardrobe will need several t0 be
complete. They're too clever this
season to pass up.
First take a '"<>k at the dress pa-
rade specialties. Made of fragile
nets and organdies and completed
with lacy frills tiny buttons, tin
smallest pin tucks and even little
hows, they'll give you that frothy,
delicate look that blends so well with
spring twilight. The old difficulty of
their transparency has been solved
by the manufacturers, who now sup-
ply phiin camisole tops fastened in-
side the blouse.
The ever popular shirtmaker af-
fairs are still holding their own, and
if you crave something l'or the more
sporty occasions try one of these
short-sleeved models of masculinity.
Then there are the white linens,
either with mushroom tucks in the
heavier weaves or with bright-color-
d ed'i'es in handkerchief linen.
Important details in the snappy,
wear-anywhere blouses are giddy col-
or combinations which make them
match any skirt or suit you put
them .with, rows of rick-rack braid
and jaunty patch pockets. Prints an-
as good in blouses as in everything
else, so havg at least one figured
linen, challis, silk or cotton to touch
up a suit.
Girls at Texas State College for
Women also demand that striped
blouses not be left out of the picture.
The shops are -bowing them in clear
striped silks and in narrow striped
piques, and some of them boast as-

Denton, April 27— Although in-
terest in the military set-up does not
run riot in Texas as in European
countries today, the history of this
state makes this phase of its gov-
ernment well worth observation.
Active military establishments in
Texas seem rather small in number
in comparison to the hundreds of old
abandoned forts scattered around
during the five different eras passed
through by this part of the country,
n each of these eras, the Spanish
and Mexican period, the era of the
Revolution and Republic, the years
before the Civil War, during the war,
and after that time, new forts were
constructed at the changing vantage
At present there are nine'fort.s in
use which, with the exception of a
few old timers, date from the post
Civil War period or World War days.
These are located on the coastline at
Galveston, Bolivar Peninsula, Gal
eston Island and Brownsville; on
the border at El Paso, Brackettville,
i,ar< do and Rio Grande City; and at
San Antonio, which' is the only fort
n the central part of Texas.
San Antonio is also the home of
or military flying fields, inekidinj.

rooks and Kelly Fields, all estab-
ished during the World War, and

"Hard wheat flour is best for good
yeast bread," said Miss Jean Day,
home demonstration agent, to the
PJainview club which met in th.
home of M.s. Bryan Metcalf, Wed-
nesday, April 21.
Hard wheat flour contains gluten
which is very necessary in making
yeast breads, also good yeast bread
should have an even crumb.

DAVIS "CHAMPION" ( HICKS
Net $80.00 a Box
Why?—Because 10 years in the Egg Laying Contests have proven
their ability to lay. Hundreds of our customers tell us that their
Davis Hens have averaged 17 to 20 dozen eggs per hen per year.
They will do it for you too.
In the end our chicks are the cheapest chicks you can possibly
buy because it costs no more to feed an Egg-Bred cluck than a
common chick of unknown egg' laying ability. Buy Davis Chicks
this year and make twice as much money this fall.
