It's just that the steer has
been eating wood.
Yes, main, we said wood. The
Florida Forest Service reports
an experiment now being con-
ducted in feeding livestock wood
molasses, made from culled hard-
woods and cottonseed cake.
The mixture costs very little,
about 25 cords of wood will pro-
duce a tank car full of food. And
the steers seem to like it.
Of course, no one's gotten
around yet to testing the meat.

Baby Sitting Is
Major Source Of
Student Pin Fund
ST. LOUIS, Nov. 22 (UP)
<—Baby sitting has boomed in-
to a major source of pocket mon-
ey for half the men of Beta
Theta Pi fraternity at Washing-
ton University in St. Louis.
Sophomore Warren Fayart,
who's from Springfield, Illinois,
conceived the idea when he saw
a group of Campus faculty
homes teeming with faculty
children. Fayart had been mull-
ing over the high cost of living.
So he had cards printed. They
read "baby sitting" and gave his
name and telephone number.
The Beta telephone was
swamped with calls. Fayart
farmed out to fraternity brothers
the sitting jobs he couldn't
handle. Now he says:
"Let's be honest about it.
We study or read the interesting
magazines all the professors
sejem to take. The babies sleep."
The student baby-sitter goes
"Sitting is a cinch. Most of
us have younger brothers or sis-
ters, nieces or nephews, so we're
not afraid of babies. Not even
of changing their diapers."

Atomic Bamb Project
Almost Canceled At
One Part Of Program
WASHINGTON, Nov. 22, (UP)
.— Democratic Representative
Clarence Cannon of Missouri
says he almost halted appropria-
tions for the development of the
atomic bomb after $2,000,000.(100
had been spent on it.
Cannon, who then was chair-
man of the House Appropria-
tions Committer said lie made
up his .mind to stop further ex-
penditures only a few days be-
fore the bomb was dropped on
Japan. Cannon said no hint of
the nature of the project was
given him or other committee
members when the army asked
for the money. When Cannon
and others began balking at the
heavy demands for funds, Can-
non said General George Mar-
shall invited a small group to
visit Oak Ridge.
Diaper Service Man
Has Ideas To Help
MEMPHIS, Nov. 22 (UP) —
There's at least one man in this
country who's determined that
mothers will get more help with
their new-born children, more
help from fathers, that is.
The chivalrous gentleman is
slowtalking, 31-year-old Bill
Cause of Memphis, Tenn. Gause
runs a diaper service in Mem-
phis. And Gause has a plan. He
has instructed his diaper service
drivers to ask mothers whether
they're getting any help from
father in changing the infant's
diapers. If the mother says no,
which is usually the case, the
driver then asks the mother's
permission to take the father
aside and have a man-to-man
talk with him.
During the talk, Gause says,
his drivers are to offer the fath-
er, free of charge, a lesson on
how to pin a diaper, a rut how
to hold a baby, feed it and bathe
Gause also says he has or-
ganized an expectant fathers
club. Through this, he hopes to
get other diaper service people
to give the same kind of aid his
own drivers give.
Gause says his ideas began
when he found that most hus-
bands, who work only five days
a week, seldom did anything to
help with the junior business.
Gause says: "Some husbands
even hide in the garage when it
comes time to switch diapers."
The Female of the Species
ST. LOUIS, (UP)— Police Ser-
geant Louis Falkenburg knows
now that woman can bo the
more dangerous of the species.
In halting the escape attempt of
a woman arrested for peace dis-
turbance, Falkenburg tackled
her. She kicked him, breakirtg
his leg. j
