“Wilt thou not revive us again:
that thy people may rejoice in thee?”
A. M. Moore, Pastor.
The past month or so has looked ex
tremely dark for the Republicans
electing a president in November.
However, they have one hope that
they can be Counted on tq make the
most of. That is the difficulty in get-
ting our' present economic system
geared to producing armaments as
fast as the public thinks such should
be turned out. Should Roosevelt fail
to get things going as the man on the
Street feels they should be progress-
ing the Republicans will likely nom-
inate some industrialist and point to
him as the man to do the job.
Wool Is Offered
Which Resists Moths
Wool can be premanently protected
against moths and other insects by a
new chemical treatment, according to
a new patent awarded Paul Schlack
of Germany. Wool so treated can be
repeatedly laundered without having
its moth-resistant properties washed
out. Unlike other moth-proofing
agents, this method is said to fix
the reagent by chemically bonding it
to the wool.
No Hold-up Seea
For 1941 Auto6
Early reports regarding the rearm-
ament program stated that no new
1941 cars would likely be put on the
market due to the need of the tool
casting plans to make armament tools
and dies and rather similar articles
for the automobile plans. But this re-
port is apparently without founda-
tion as the tools and dies for the 1941
cars are about complete and the new
models will makd their appearance
on schedule. Such, however, may be
true regarding the 1942 models. The
auto industry feats that car prices
are due for an increase.
MRS. DORTHEA TUSTI
Mrs. Dorthea Tusti, nee Hendrick-
son, was born September 30, 1865, in
Hedemarken, Romdal, Norway. She
was baptized in November, 1865, and
having been instructed in the way of
salvation, was confirmed in her bap-
tismal covenant by Rev. Olin Nordli.
She came to this country in 1887,
living in Clifton for some years, later
residing in Waco.
In July, 1889, she was united in
marriage to Neil Tusti. They made
their home in Waco, where they have
been well and favorably known for
more than fifty years.
Mrs. Tusti was active in her church
circles for many years. She was
faithful to her Lord; a true mother
in the home, who desired to live her
“O blest that house where faith ye
And all within have set then-
To trust their God and serve Him
And do, in all, His holy will.”
Mrs. Tusti passed away shortly af-
ter five o’clock on Friday morning,
She is survived by her husband and
six daughters, namely: Mrs. P. S.
Dahl of Clifton, Nena, Agnes, Alpha,
Lillie and Mrs. George Etter, all of
Waco. She also leaves three grand-
children and one great grandchild.
Two sisters and two brothers survive
her in Norway. One daughter, Minnie,
died in 1919 and another daughter,
Nora, died in infancy.
Funeral services were conducted
from the home at 9:30 and at the
church at 10 on Saturday morning,
by Rev. O. T. Boe in the absence of
Rev. Quello. Interment was made in
the Oakwood Cemetery in Waco.

Parking Meters For
During the past year some fifty-
five cities adopted the use of parking
meters. Such meters are now said to
be in operation in about 150 cities in
the United States. The larger cities
