There is always something new
under the sun.
Entertaining proof of that state-
ment will be presented by The
Claude News, which is bringing to
the Gem Theatre of Claude, a
motion picture that pioneers in
fresh, stimulating treatment of the
oldest and most important subject
in the world—Homemaklng.
Lang ago the Cooking School
graduated from a curiosity to a
popular necessity in many parts of
the country. Now it has graduated
again, leaping this time into Holly-
For this is no routine lecture, no
methodical demonstration which
the Claude News will give to the
women of the county for three
days without charge, starting at
2:00 p. m. Monday, Feb. 14 and
showing three days, Monday, Tues-
day and Wednesday.
The Claude News takes a gen-
uine pride in being among the
first to sponsor "The Bride Wakes
Up" a full-length feature picture,
directed and filmed in Hollywood,
with a competent cast to interpret
the appealing story.
Women young and old, and men
too, will appreciate the humanness
of this romantic screen story, in
which home problems have been
approached from an entirely new
angle. Entertainment, profitable
instruction, humor and romance
are woven deftly into a production
which abounds in ingenious camera
studies and remarkable close-ups.
The camera has modernized the
Cooking School, magnifying its
benefits, losing none of its hospi-
table, friendly charm.
In fact, there are close-ups of a
new chocolate layer cake and a
lemon chiffon pit that are destin-
ed to send the hungry audience
hustling home to duplicate the
culinary triumphs. Free recipe
sheets each day will provide add-
Experienced housekeepers will
thrill to the adventures of the win-
some bride, whose husband begins
to boil when lie finds that she
can't even boll water. But this
bride is blessed with resourceful
determination, even though the
faithful servant in her girlhood
home made effort to spoil her.
What happens after the honey-
moon is over? What happens when
the bride becomes aware of the
critical gaze of some of her hus-
band's old sweethearts, who are
not apt to forget heavy biscuits
in a hurry?
To unravel the mystery in ad-
vance would be to rob tills clever
tale of its novel approach. How-
ever the audience is due to share
a series of neighborly food con-
sultations, in which expert linme
specialists reveal the secrets which
govern the perfection of flaky pie-
crust, fluffy cakes, molded icebox
marvels, appetizing salads and cor-
rectly roasted meats.
Never has the wizardry of the
camera brought a subject more
closely and naturally to the
It will be a real cooking class,
just as though the model kitchen
were right on the stage, with the
exception that the view actually
will be more complete for each
person In the audience. The guests

Locally, the Claude News has
carried a number of notices about

day of the President.
This particular occasion is to be
a banquet, served by the Home
Economics Department of the
Claude School. The public is urged
to take this manner of contributing
to a very worth-while cause by at-
tending. Mr. Douglass, chairman of
the program committee, indicated

Whenever we hear politician;-
denouncing the newspapers and de-
manding that they stop criticizing
public officials, we bejin to be
suspicious that there is something
going on which would not look
good in print.
Any politician 01 public officer-
holder whose .actions will not stand
examination in the light of day
deserves to be criticized for at-
tempting to conceal what he is
doing from the public on which
he depends for political support
and which pays his salary when he
has a public Job.
This is still a democracy. The
office-holder are still the public's
servants, and responsible to the!
public. That is not true in a great;
many countries, where the people j
have surrendered their rights or j
been deprived of them by force.1

America the state is the servant <
of the people.
The first step of those who
would deceive or cajole the people
into surrendering their personal
liberties is to keep them In Ignor-]

done by supressing the news of

This is one of the last pictures taken of the U. S. Gunboat Panay (pro:
Pa-nigh) before she disappeared beneath the waters of the Yangtsd
bombed and machine-gunned by Japanese planes and land forces. In
protesting directly to Nipponese Emperor Hirohito, the State Depart-
ment stressed the fact that the Panay was flying United States colors
(sea arrow above) thus disproving earlier Japanese excuses that the
attack was a case of "mistaken identity."
That figures out to $160 for each
Apierican family of four persons.
That figure does not sound good

thinking may say it '' lesn't touch

MISS ROBERTA HUNT
Lubbock. Jan. 21—Miss Roberta
Hunt, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
J. K. Hunt, Claude, will complete
her work in commercial art at
mittee for Observance of the Pres- Texas Technological College this
orously; for such charges may
easily be a first step toward build-
ing up a public opinion so un-
friendly to newspapers that it
might become easy enough to sup-
press them. We do not think any
responsible person or group in
America has any such intention,
but If there were a serious pur-
pose to set the Government up as
ruler Instead of servant, that would
be the first thing which would
have to be done.

in an attitude of dejection.
