-Kiwanians Hear Rev.
Brown Talk on Theme
of “Profit and Loss”
Stating that when a man ad-
dressed a club, it was expected
that he should tell something of
the business in which he was en-
gaged, Rev. B. C. Brown, pastor
of Calvary Baptist church spoke
on “Profit ami Loss" before the
Tuesday meeting of the Denison
Kivvanijj club at Hotel Denison.
Pointing out that the text
“What shall it profit a man if he
shall gain the whole world and
lose his own soul,” used business
terms with exception of the word
soul, the speaker indicated that
business was conducted for the
purpose of profit, gain, and that
the word soul was the only relig-
ious term used. Still, he said, no
business could profit and succeed
without the factors which make
for success in business being in-
toned by the spirit which come;
from recognition of the place of
the church in a community.
He urged business in religion
as well as religion in business and
pointed out that no business would
settle where there was no church
and that the church was vital to i
the success of business in any1
Stating that the church could
use all the business acumen men
could bring to it, he made the
point that the church today should
be as comfortable as a theatre, as i
attractive as a modern cafe, as
beautiful as any ball room and as
fine as any bank building. He was
introduced by George Hodges,
chairman of the program com-
mittee for the day. The singing
was led by Dr. Jas. F. McFariing
and the prayer was by Rev. Homer
J. W. Harris presided in the ab-
sence of F. 0. Babcock. The club
will hold its monthly business
session at 6 p. m. Monday, the
7th at Hotel Denison. The meet-
ing, Tuesday the Rth, will he de-
voted tc business.
To Grow Plants Quickly
Do Not Transplant Them
If seeds are sown thinly, they will reach garden size faster
One of the old maxims of garden
practice which science has proved
wrong is that it benefits plants to
transplant them. It was formerly
taught that if plants grown from
seed were transplanted as soon as
they were large enough, they grew
stocky and gained vigor.
It has been demonstrated that ev-
ery time a growing plant is lifted
and moved to a new location, it suf-
fers a shock and set-back. From
this it may, indeed, recover, but in
a race to maturity it will fall be-
hind a plant whose growth was not
interrupted by transplanting
The chief advantage in early
transplanting of young .seedling
plants, is that many seeds may be
sown close together in a flat or pot,
and those which come up may be
moved before they crowd to other
flats or pots, where they grow un-
til safe to set out in the garden.
Florists usually follow this meth-
od, which permits economies in
time, and greenhouse space. By
starting earlier than would other-
wise be necessary, they get their
plants to garden size on time, and
make use of every good seed in the
Amateur gardeners should con-
sider before they start seeds in-
doors, or in an outdoor box, wheth-
er it is more important to make
every seed count, or to grow the
largest plants they can i.i the short-
est time. In case of u late start,
the latter will be advisable. In that1
case, the first sowing in a seed box
should be made with the seeds
thinly spaced, so plants will not be
crowded when they come up.
It should be sufficient to sow
twice as many seeds as you have
room for, to allow for failures from
accidents, or other causes. If all
seeds grow, some plants may have
to be taken out, but as many as
possible should be grown without
check to garden size.
Garden size may mean anything
from the second pair of leaves up,
depending on how late you sow
The younger a plant is when moved
outdoors, the quicker it will recov-
er and resume growth. Plants may
be moved to the garden as soon as
the weather permits, if they have
made true leaves. They should not
be started so early that they out-
grow their indoors quarters when
it is still too cold to move outdoors,
as “this may seriously check their
If you take as a guide the date in
your locality after which the gar-
den is usually safe from killing
frosts, then you may start seed
four weeks before that date in a
cold frame or in the house; six
weeks before in a hot-bed and eight
weeks or more in a greenhouse,
and be reasonably sure that, pro-
vided you grow your plants in con-
tainers which have plenty of soil,
you can grow them without check
until safe to move them to the gar-

Training Schools for
Food Handlers to Cut
Spreading of Disease
In a vigorous campaign to ele-
vate the state health level by pre-
venting the spread of communic-
able diseases which might he trails-,
mitted by foods, the state depart-
ment of health is conducting train-!
ing schools for food handlers in all
sections of Texas, according to Dr.
Geo. W. Cox, state health officer.
“Food handlers are being in-
structed in sanitary methods of
preparing, handling, and serving-
food for public consumption,” Dr.
Cox said. “Actual experience has
; shown that an insanitary eating
establishment is one of the surest
sources of spreading infection.
The lack of proper sanitation in
food handling is a definite menace
to public health and our goa' is the
education of cooks, waiters, butch-
ers, bakers, fountain men, and all
other food handlers to such a level

What Surveys Find
Out About Readers
of Texas Newspapers
Reader-interest surveys recently
conducted by Dr. George Gallup
reveal the following facts that
warrant the attention of Texas
1. Advertising is fully as im-
portant as news in attracting wom-
2. The picture page is the beat
read page in the newspaper
3. Comic strips are among the
strongest circulation features.
4. Men do not read serials in
newspapers, usually, but women
5. Mystery stories do not sic
cced as serials.
6. Pictures are needed with, sc*
ials. and they should b plioti
graphs, lathe1' than drawings.
7. Church news and uplift new -
have practical/ no interest.
8. In everything intended to ap-
peal to women, the type masses
must be broken up. Women shy |
away from solid type even more
than ever. Insert a short poem,,
some dashes, indent paragraphs, j
to .avoid heavy appearance.
X The theory that the working
girl is interested in the social ac-
tivities of the wealthy is not borne j
out by surveys.
10. Radio programs win consid-j
erable interest; they are an essen-
tial part of the newspaper.
11. Crossword puzzles are los-
ing followers in both newspapers
12. Cooking recipe: are always
12. Parliamentary and foreign
political news is not read widely.
