If you’re the woman who wants a hair-do you can take care of
easily, this is for you! There’s nothing so casual, so charming, so
simple to manage as this Feathercut! It makes baby fine hair look
fluffy and fuller, and it is particularly attractive for thick hair which
has been properly thinned. Of course, the basis is a good short hair-
cut and a good soft permanent, and the home permanents of the best
known manufacturers are excellent. Best of all, it’s no trick to set this
hair-do yourself and put it up in pin curls. The sketches show you
how to do it. Follow the procedure outlined in 1, 2, and 3 above. Tie
a ribbon behind your ears and lend a festive look when you’re plan-
ning a sport date or an evening out. (See 4).

WASHINGTON—An aviation spe-
cialist affiliated with the national
advisory committee for aeronautics
disclosed that the first supersonic
jet fighter plane in this country may
be flying in 1949.
He said a description of the revo-
lutionary fighter plane which will
travel faster than sound (760 miles
an hour at standard flying condi-
tions) was presented secretly by the
committee to a house appropriations
The air force research plane,
XS-1, has been reported in aviation
journals as having exceeded the
speed of sound for the first time.
This plane, however, cannot take
off under its own power and has to
be released in the air by a mother
plane. The official top aircraft
speed is 650.6 miles an hour set by
the navy’s research plane, the Sky-
The committee, a government air-
craft research agency established
in 1915, reported to congress that
the supersonic jet fighter as well as
three new jet bombers are now
under development. The bombers
will have speeds exceeding 500
miles an hour.
“A technological revolution in
warfare is taking place,” the com-
mittee said in its report. “The key
factor in our security is an aero-
nautical research program of suf-
ficient magnitude and vision to as-
sure our technical superiority in

"Puppy Feast' of
Three Fraternity Members Asked
To Explain Initiation Week
LOS ANGELES.—The city attor-
ney here ordered the president of
Beta Theta Pi fraternity and two
pledges to explain their sides to
charges that a “hell week” initia-
tion necessitated the slaying and
eating of a cocker spaniel puppy.
The social fraternity on the cam-
pus of University of California at
Los Angeles denied the charges
made by one pledge who resigned
because he was "revolted” by the
asserted execution of a six-month-
old puppy obtained from the Santa
Monica city pound.
Jim Higson, fraternity president,
said he knew nothing of the as-
serted killing and “puppy feast.”
John G. Hallock, 24-year-old
former air force sergeant who was
questioned by the city attorney’s
office after a “tip” from an un-
identified person, said the dog was
killed on orders from an older
member to bring a “freshly killed
dog” for dinner.
The fraternity denied any such
instructions but admitted a cocker
spaniel female puppy was bought
from the Santa Monica pound for
a mascot and said that it had run
The boys brought the puppy to
the house and it was jumping
around licking their hands, Hallock
“I guess it was glad to get out
of the pound. Richard Roberts told
me they hated to go through with
their orders but decided the best
way would be to hit it over the
“They went to the grocery store
and bought some milk and while
the dog was drinking it they killed
it. It was alive after the first blow
so they hit it a couple more times,”
He admitted he had not seen the
execution but had seen the dog’s
body carried into the basement.
He said he did not know whether
it actually had been eaten because
he left the house then and did not

Why keep a rooster when an alarm
clock is cheaper?
That question is posed by Boyd A.
Ivory, Wyoming agricultural exten-
sion service poultry specialist. A
rooster, Ivory points out, eats about
$5 worth of feed a year at current
prices. All you get in return, he in-
sists; is a lot of crowing—accom-
panied by NO eggs!
A rooster is worthless in a poultry
flock unless he is being used for
breeding purposes in supplying fer-
tile eggs for hatcheries or home in-
Hens won’t lay any more eggs than
they are laying just because a roost-
er is on the premises, so why not
sell that “crowing so-and-so”?
Trade him for a $1.93 alarm clock
that tells the time of day for the
entire 24 hours and you’ll save about
$3 in feed costs on the swap!
Quality Chicks Heeded
To Offset Feed Costs
One method through which poul-
trymen can combat the present
high cost of feed is to purchase
good quality chicks. Feed costs,
records" compiled by the extension
service indicate, now amount to 60
per cent or more of the total costs
of producing eggs and chicken
meat in contrast to 50 per cent in
Tree 'Butchery' Blamed
On Untrained Primers
It often takes 50 to 75 years to
raise a good shade tree. But, exten-
sion foresters insist, it takes only a
few minutes for an untrained
pruner to ruin its beauty. Poor trim-
ming technique is destroying the
beauty of many streets.
Examples of good pruning are
seen on most public building
grounds. On the other hand, on al-
most any street examples of tree
“butchery” can be seen.
You want the best in enjoyment Saturday, come to
Panhandle and join in the day s fun.
You’ll find plenty doing here with the VFW pie auc-
tion and barbecue, swimming pool opening and bath-
ing beauty revue, baseball game and dance.
