“Swamp Fire” heads the double

theatre Friday and Saturday of
For all the heat it generates,
this little number from the busy
assembly line of Producers Pine
and Thomas might more appropri-
ately have been named “St. El1
SBO’s Fire.” The producers fol-
lowing the routine that has prov-
en unusually effective in many of
their former offerings, again se-
lected a little-known, hazardous
and colorful occupation around
Which to build one of their ac-
tion pictures. This time it was
the bar pilots who guide ships
from the Gulf into the Mississip-
pi who supplied the subject for
the film, which was concocted to
project the lives, loves and ad-
ventures of those seafaring hard-
Johnny Weissmuller and Virgin-
ia Grey take the leading roles.
Also showing Friday and Satur-
day is “Rainbow Over Texas,”
starring Roy Rogers.
A rainbow overhead gladdens
the heart of Rogers, the croonin’
Cowboy, after a run_in with some
desperadoes of the West.

Tests Show Eight Amino
Acids Essential to Diet
Tests on human volunteers show
that eight of the amino acids—the
“bricks” in the protein molecule—
are essential in man’s diet, accord-
ing to Dr. William C. Rose of the
University of Illinois. The experi-
ments showed that the 13 remaining
known amino acids in the protein
molecule are not required for main-
taining nitrogen balance in man,
and evidently can be manufactured
by the body.
• Healthy young men have served
as the experimental subjects, Dr.
Rose said. The diets were com-
posed of mixtures of purified amino
acids, starch sugar, concentrated
butter, inorganic salts, and vita-
mins. The amino acid mixtures fur-
nished 7 to 10 grams of nitrogen
Following the ingestion of such
diets, the subjects came into nitro-
gen equilibrium within a few days.
At the expiration of the fore period
in each subject, single amino acids
were omitted from the food, and the
effects upon nitrogen balance were
noted. The work is being con-
tinued to determine the minimum
amount of the eight amino acid
“bricks” needed in the diet, he add-

Allow Room for Expansion
In Hull of Great Liner
The Queen Elizabeth, world’s
largest passenger liner due to make
her maiden voyage on October 16,
actually “stretches” to accommo-
date herself to rough seas.
During the exhaustive investiga-
tions made in the design stage, when
thousands of decisions had to be
made on the thickness and strength
of her hull plating, engineers hit on
the possibility of using special elas-
tic steel in areas where particularly
heavy strain was likely to be en-
countered. They then incorporated
into the hull many plates of this
steel which “gives” when subjected
to the pounding of heavy waves.
The main strength of the Queen
Elizabeth has been placed in the
structure from the keel to the prom-
enade deck. The superstructure has
been built in lighter materials. How-
ever, since the tremendous length
of the 83,673-ton ship involves heavy
stresses even to the superstructure,
the latter was built in sections de-
tached from each other by a few
inches. Known as “expansion
joints,” these spaces expand and
contract with sea-going strains, at
the same time presenting an unbro-
ken line to the observer.

eases in trees and shrubs.
Insect control and pruning of
shrubs should he given much at-
tention. She pointed out that

able nursery to buy from. This

Trichinosis is a fancy word, but
it’s also a serious disease that can
affect human beings. Trichinosis is
readily preventable, however, if
people will remember to cook pork
thoroughly since swine may be hosts
to this parasite. During the winter
season, particularly during the holi-
days, smoked and dried sausage and
various other products containing
pork are eaten without cooking in
some households. Such products, if
they happen to have been made
from hogs that were affected with
trichinae, are some of the sources
of trichinosis in this country. Tast-
ing sausage to determine its season-
ing is one method of acquiring this
disease. Hamburgers also frequent-
ly contain some pork, and when they
are not sufficiently cooked, this dis-
ease may be acquired. It should
be remembered that large pieces of
pork require much more cooking
than small ones because heat pene-
trates slowly into meat in the proc-
ess of cooking. Large pieces that
are well-cooked on the outside may
be imperfectly cooked or almost en-
tirely raw in the center. Care should
be taken that pork is “done” thor-
oughly, and throughout.

One hundred and seven land-1
owners have indicated by peti-
tion to the State Soil Conserva-
tion Board that we do have a
soil conservation problem in Car-
Howard Goss, field representa-
tive, of the state board, will hold
official hearings in Carson coun-
ty March 19, 194 7. One hear-
ing will be in the district court
room in Panhandle at 2:30 p. m.
and another in Groom high school
auditorium at 7:30 p. m. All
Carson county farmers and land-
owners are urged to attend and
hear Mr. Goss explain the state
law which governs soil conserva-
If the hearing is favorable, a
county election will be held to
determine whether or not Carson
county will be included in an or-
ganized soil consei’vation district.

“Three Little Girls”
In Three-Day Run
Lively, light musical entertain-
ment is offered in “Three Little
Girls in Blue,” coming to the Pan-
handle Theatre Sunday, Monday
and Tuesday, March 16-18.
A musical score with many
catchy tunes, some old and some
new, is the mainstay of the' film.
June Haver, Vivian Blaine and
Vera-Ellen present pleasing,
sprightly dance and song routines
for which the plot allows plenty
of room. The story is simply that
of three sisters who decide to
leave their poultry farm and spend
their inheritance' on a hunt for
millionaire husbands. They go to
Atlantic City and after romantic
complications find happiness.
Technicolor enhances the film
and highlights attractive costumes
fashionable at the turn of the
century. George Montgomery,
Frank Latimore and Charles
Smith play the devoted swains.
Celeste Holm, Broadway star of
“Oklahoma” and “Bloomer Girl,”
makes her jscreen debut as a
southern girl. She gives an en-
tertaining portrayal and sings
“Atiways a Lady,” which she pre-
sents in an appealing manner.
Mack Gordon, noted lyric wri-
ter, makes his initial effort as a
producer. The result is a refresh-
| ing musical picture,
i In the screenplay the accent is
on romance. M.ack Gordon’s lyrics
and Josef Myrow’s music included
in the film are: “I Like Mike,”
“On the Board Walk.” “Three
Little Girls in Blue” and “Some-
where in the Night.” Vera_Ellen
dances a fantasy swing ballet to
the music of “You Make Me Feel
So Young,” which is spectacular
It should please audiences seek-
ing gay entertainment.

Panhandle Independent School
District owes only $23,000 in
bonds. Some say that this is for-
tunate because of the increased
costs of operation necessary with
higher salaries now and to come.
The district owes $7,000 of
bonds due Dec. 1, 1947; another
$7,000 due Dec. 1, 1948, and a
final $6,000 due Dec. 1, 1949, on
the high school.
Another $3,000 of non-callable
bonds for the old grade school
building is due Dec. 1, 1953.
The district has endeavored to
buy the bonds, but they have not
Bond interest at the rate of
$71.25 semiannually since June
1, 1933, has been remitted regu-
larly to a New York bank for pay-
ment. The coupons for the years
1933 to 1946 inclusive, a period
of 14 years, have not been pre-
sented for payment.
Thus, $1,995 for 14 years in-
terest have not been paid to the
coupon holders, but the money
is ready for them in New York.
Proper digging and storage of
dahlia tubers has a great deal to
do with their keeping qualities. If
they are injured in digging, decay
starts in the wound and spreads to
the healthy roots. Digging should
be done about a week or 10 days
after the first killing frost. Before
digging cut off the stalks to about
two inches above the ground. In
removing the tubers there are two
precautions that should be remem-
bered. First, be careful not to break
the clumps apart and second, don’t
pull the clumps out by the stems.
Store upside down in a dry cellar
for about two weeks. At the end of
this time cut off all loose and broken
roots. Powder the crowns with a
fine dusting sulphur and the roots
are ready to be stored. The ideal
temperature for storage is 40 to 45

A special fungicidal dusting com-
pound to control foliage diseases
of roses has been introduced by the
Du Pont company. The rose dust
has proved especially effective
against black spot, powdery mildew
and rust. It may be employed ei-
ther as a dust or spray and is suit-
able also for carnations and snap-
dragons. Rose dust should be ap-
plied as necessary to keep new fo-
liage covered, particularly during
rainy and foggy periods. Plants
should not be “drowned” with dust.
Proper use of the compound, au-
thorities point out, is largely a mat-
ter of timing. As a spray, rose dust
is recommended at the rate of three
tablespoonfuls in one gallon. No leaf
burning has been encountered in
tests except during hot weather.
