THREE colors are used with an artist's touch in this charming cro-
cheted luncheon set called "Sun Ray." Identical doilies in three sizes
comprise the set, and it's easy and inexpensive to crochet yourself. Cen-
ters of henna and hunter green mercerized crochet cotton combine effec-
tively with the natural colored "spokes" of the doilies, and the
repeats the high tones. This luncheon set, too, would make an outstand-
ing entry in the Fifth Annual Nation-Wide Crochet Contest which is
being held this Fall to select and award America's finest crocheters.
Directions for crocheting this luncheon set and details of the Contest
may be obtained by sending a stamped, self-addressed envelope to tht
Needlework Department of this paper, specifying design No. 661.
Lyndon Johnson Backs
Roosevelt On Bill
To Retain Selectees
Cong. Lyndon Johnson of Tex-
as, a democratic administration
leader, appealed to the house in
one of his rare speeches to pass
the senate-approved bill retain-
ing selectees and National Guards
beyond one year, "because the
United States wants the best army
it can get."
Significantly, Cong. Johnson's
speech in the house followed
quickly after that of the new
Texas Senator W. Lee O'Daniel.
in which O'Daniel, opi>osed Pres.
Roosevelt's proposal for keeping
and further training the army
beyond one-year terms. O'Daniel
pledged himself to vote against
the extension measure. Johnson
took the lead in the pending
house fight to carry the admin-
istration proposal as it went
through the senate.
"Texas boys prefer extended
service now to slavery hereafter."
Cong. Johnson replied. "So, in my
opinion, do the majority of
Cong. Johnson, who recently
was invited to his home state to
address a joint session of the |
Texas legislature, told his col-
leagues in congress that "I do
not believe we can wait" on ac-
tion to retain the arm) trainee*. I
"We are working against time, i
The penalties of national I.<• na-
tion are visible in the dead na-
tions everywhere we look. We
must go on.
"3 know how Texas boys feel
They come from a race of men
who fought for their freedom at
the Alamo and Goliad and San
Jacinto. They had little equip-
ment and what they had was
poor. Every time they fought
they were greatly outnumbered :
but they fought anyway, because
they were battling for their
homes, their religion, their liber-j
ly of conscience and action.
""Texas boys who come from 1
such stock and are inculcated
with such democratic ideals are
not going to grow technical. They
are not going to require a dis-
charge from the Army on any
aribtrary date indicated in their
papers and let their country take
the hindmost in time of peri!.
The world is in a war to decide
freedom or slavery for the world.
That war may wash nearer to
our shore any time. Darker days
than these may lie ahead for us.
I hope not, but perhaps they are
nearer than we think.
"Texas boys prefer extended
service now to slavery hereafter.
So, in my opinion, do the ma-
jority of American boys."
CONTINUED RISES IN

He predicted continued rises in
business activity, as he looked to
unprecedented retail selling, along
with still brighter agricultural,
mineral and industrial pictures.

| TEXAS GAME
"I'll take my hunting in Texas,"
I exclaimed a sportsman recently
|after perusing a story issued by
J the Pennsylvania Game Commis-
sion which noted that the season
and bag limits on most game in
that state will be more liberal
The reason for the exclamation
was that, while Pennsylvania has
long been noted as the leading
game state in the nation, its bag
limits are far below those of Tex-
as for almost every species of
game. It was also found that
Michigan, another of the leading
game states in the nation, also
had far more stringent regulations
than does the Lone Star State.
Michigan, for example, generally
ranks second in deer, Texas fifth,
and in all species of big game
Michigan is generally second and
Yet the sportsman read, to his
amazement, that Pennsylvania al-
lows the hunter only one buck
deer during a two-week season.
Michigan also gives the sports-
man the privilege of killing but
one deer. Texas' bag limit is two
per season and the season is six
Hunters in Texas are allowed
three turkey gobblers during a
six-week season under the gen-
eral state law, but the Pennsyl-
vania hunter legally can take
only one and Michigan's nimrods
do not even have that pleasure,
there being no open season on the
great American bird in that huge
Quail hunters who pursue their

a half limes as many

is allowed by'
can bag 20 of the lifr
crs during a season ..nich e!
tends from Nov, 1 to Sept. 30.
Michigan is a bit more liberal, al-
lowing the taking of 25 squirrels.
Texans, believe it or not, could
legally kill 1,800 squirrels under
a state law which provides an
open season for six months of
tlie year. The daily bag limit is
10 and with 180 days in which
to legally hunt the tree climbers
Texans can gorge on squirrels.
Want to hunt rabbits?? You
can do so, and legally, at any
time of the year in the Lone Star
State, but don't attempt it in
Michigan or Pennsylvania more
han three weeks in the year. Too,
it is illegal in Pennsylvania to
take more than 4 rabbits .n a
single day or 20 in a season. \If
vou are in Michigan you can no
i bit better. That state's daily
limit is 5 and 30 may bo killed
during the season.
"Well," remarked the old-timer
after looking over tin- above fig-
ures, "Maybe those strict bag
limits and shorter seasons are
the reason Pennsylvania anrl
Michigan can outrank Texas in
