SUCH IS LIFE—Which Nobody Can Deny! By Charles Sughroe
Early Spring Model
By LYDIA LE BARON WALKER
Soups are welcome at winter meals,
whether served at mid day or night.
Sometimes a soup can be so hearty
that it can form the main course for a
family luncheon or supper. Chowders
are among these hearty soups. One
could scarcely eat a full course din-
ner after a good serving of clam, fish,
or even corn chowder. There are
certain European soups which are of
like hearty substance. One of this
kind is given today. Francatelli gives
directions for the making of sausages
which are among the ingredients.
However, as sausages are seldom
home-made in America and are easily
obtainable, this recipe will be omitted.
fore the soup is poured over fried
The above quantity of soup calls for
18 sausages "the size of a cob nut.”
This is a hazelnut. An ordinary sau-
sage link would supply three or four
of these nut-size pieces according to
the size of the link. Or sausage meat
can be shaped into little balls or ovals.
If links are used, cut them after fry-
ing before pouring the soup over them.
Either kind of sausages should be
fried a delicate brown in a little but-
ter. Put them in the soup tureen or
divide them equally and put each
group in its serving soup, plate.

HIGHWAY LINKS U. S.
WITH MEXICO CITY
Opens Up Southern Neigh-
bor to Tourist Travel.
Washington. — Mexico is pushing
forward its greatest highway project—
an improved'road linking the United
States border at Laredo, Texas, with
its capital, Mexico City. The federal
highwTay commission of Mexico states
that this 770-mile section, opening up
northeastern Mexico to tourist travel
and trade, will probably be ready for
through traffic in June, 1933.
A bulletin from the National Geo-
graphic society describes the chief
cities and scenic features along this
picturesque route, which will be a part
of the proposed 10,000-mile Pan-Amer-
ican highway linking Washington, D.
C., with Buenos Aires, Argentina, and
other Latin American capitals.
"Motorists seeking new roads to con-
quer will find that this ‘farthest south’
for a continuous highway journey from
the United States is a roadway of spec-
tacular variety,” says the bulletin.
"The route traverses deserts, mile-high
mountains, ranch country, lush tropi-
cal jungles, and, in places, runs
through deep canons where the high-
way is a mere scratch on the steep
Ties Up With United States.
“From San Antonio, Texas, a paved
road southward to the twin border
cities of Laredo and Neuvo Laredo
ties in the new Mexican highway with
the improved road system of the Unit-
ed States. Nuevo Laredo, in the Mex-
ican State of Tamaulipas, and the first
city to be reached after crossing the
Bio Grande, has developed amazingly
in the last two years, since pavement
was completed to Monterrey. This
151-mile section compares favorably
with the best American highways.
One stretch runs 45 miles across the
desert without a curve.
"Monterrey, the capital of the State
of Nuevo Leon, is surrounded by mile-
high peaks, the most conspicuous be-
ing its famous Saddle mountain
(Monte de la Silla).
"An improved gravel road leads
from Monterrey over the mountains to
the west to Saltillo, capital of Coa-
huila, a region of ranges where long-
horned cattle graze. This eventually
will be part of a through route to Mex-
ico City via San Luis Potosi.
"The main highway today, however,
strikes south to Ciudad Victoria. This
180-mile section is about a quarter
paved and the rest is all-weather grav-
el. Here the road winds through one
of the chief fruit-raising sections of
Paradise for Hunters.
"From this point to the little town
of Valles, in the State of San Luis
Potosi, the road surface alternates be-
tween gravel and graded earth. This
region is a paradise for hunters—wild
boar, deer, raccoon, quail and turkey
being plentiful. Coffee, cotton, rice
and vanilla beans are the principal
“In the rugged mountain section be-
tween Valles and the village of Jacala,
in the State of Hidalgo, construction
work has been moving forward slowly
since April, 1931. Here the road climbs
from the dense tropical jungles and
swTamps along the Tamuin river, where
parrots fly overhead, and gorgeous
flowers and banana groves border the
highway, to the tableland.
"From Jacala southward an im-
proved highway will carry the route
through Pachuca, an important silver
mining town, into Mexico City. Rapid
progress has been made here in recent
months, and what some travelers once
characterized as the ‘most dangerous
road in the world’ may soon be a mod-
ern boulevard, a monument to engi-
neering skill. Near Pachuca are great
basaltic formations sometimes called
‘the Giant Causeway of America.’
“From Mexico City modern roads
are branchings out in all directions.
The longest, of all-weather gravel con-
struction, extends over the Old Span-
ish Trail to Acapulco. Another car-
ries the Pan-American highway south-
ward to the city of Pueblo.”

celebrity that he one day took a dis-

It was wash day, or the maid’s day
out, or something of the sort, and all
that Mrs. Lowell had for luncheon was
a dish of “picked” codfish, which she
had taught her husband to enjoy.
“I will omit the fish course today,”
the guest announced when he was
about to be served, and then some-
thing had to be done.
Britton never ate butter. Whenever
the subject of butter came up, Brit-
ton had rather a depressed look come
over his face. Nor would he eat any-
thing which contained butter, if he
was aware of the situation. Further
than this, he refused to eat anything
which you told him contained butter.
If you passed him the mashed pota-
toes or a simple piece of sponge cake
and intimated that butter formed part
of the composition of either, it was
thumbs down with Britton. His wasn’t
a matter of taste, it was a state of
A varied diet is undoubtedly more
healthful than a restricted one. A
man who will eat and enjoy anything
that is wholesome is far easier to get
on with, far more easily satisfied with
what is placed before him. One can
teach himself to eat and to like al-
most anything that is safely edible.
I know, for I have learned to eat car-
rots and beets and eggplant, and
these vegetables, in my mind, approxi-
mate most nearly to nothing to eat of
anything I know.

In his native land he might have
been a champion bullfighter, but Jo-
seph (Peppy) Garcia, seventeen, who
came to the United States only six
years ago from Spain, is an adept at
the American sport of basketball.
Taking full advantage of his 6 feet 3
inches, coaches of the Fifth Avenue
high school team of Pittsburgh, run-
ner-up for the Pennsylvania state
championship, have made Garcia an
outstanding star in the court pastime.
He can handle a basketball in the
manner shown above with either hand.
Why the Yawn
A certain amount of oxygen is
needed in our blood. If, through
faulty ventilation, or because of
bodily disorders, we are not tak-
ing sufficient oxygen from the air
through our breathing process, na-
ture provides a safety valve—the
yawn. This sudden inrush of air
temporarily meets the require-
ments of the blood. The impulse
for the yawn originates in the

ODD THINGS AND NEW—By Lame Bode
By THOMAS ARKLE CLARK
Late Dean of Men,
University of Illinois.
Term “O. K.” First Used in
Tennessee Court Records
The first known use of the term
O. K. appears in the court records of
Sumner county, Tennessee, October 6,
1790. On that date Andrew Jackson
"proved a bill of sale from Hugh Mc-
Cary to Gasper Mansker, for a negro
man, which was O. K.” James Par-
ton, in his biography of Jackson, sug-
gests that what appeared to be O. K.
in the record may really have been a
poorly penned O. R., which was the
abbreviation for "Ordered Recorded.”
Apparently, O. K. came into general
use after Jackson was elected Presi-
dent in 1828. Jackson’s illiteracy was
one of the chief criticisms of his op-
ponents during the next campaign;
Seba Smith seems to have originated
the story that Jackson indorsed his
papers O. K., under the impression
that it was the abbreviation of “All
Correct,” which he, according to the
story, spelled "Oil Korrect.” Some
dictionaries accept this explanation of
the phrase; others say it is probably
from the Choctaw "okeh,” which is
pronounced o kay, and defined as "it
is so and in no other way.” This the-
ory was accepted by Woodrow Wilson
who, as President, used "okeh” in ap-
proving papers. There is little evi-
dence to support this theory. Anoth-
er theory derives O. K. from the town
of Aux Cayes (pronounced o-kay),
from which the best tobacco and rum
were imported in Colonial times.
English Sparrows Brought
to the U. S. Years Ago
The first introduction of the English
sparrow into this country was in 1850,
when 50 pairs were set free in Brook-
lyn, N. Y. Others were soon released
at other points, it being the common
belief that these birds would protect
the foliage of shade trees by feeding
upon caterpillars that, in turn, liked
to feed on the leaves of the trees. Un-
fortunately, now that the English spar-
row is quite at home all over the Unit-
ed States, and, in fact, much of Amer-
ica, most authorities agree that it does
much more harm than good. Feeding
on seeds, buds, fruits and otherwise
making itself a destructive garden vis-
itor, distributing vermin and disease
germs, making unsightly nests in in-
convenient places, and driving away
gentler, more desirable birds, are some
of the habits which have injured the
popularity of this bird.
Carried Too Far
The foreman was called away for a
few days, and during his absence he
left two of his most trusted workmen
"Pat,” he had said before he went,
“you can be foreman on Monday, and
you, Mike, can be foreman on Tues-
On Monday morning Foreman Pat
made Mike’s life unbearable. He gave
him all sorts of difficult jobs, and com-
plained because they were not done
Mike stuck it out for as long as
he could without saying a word. At
last he pulled Pat aside.
"You’re having it all your own way
today,” he said grimly, “but you wait
until tomorrow, you’ll wish you’d
never been born.”
“You’ll be doin’ nothing to me, Mike,
my lad,” he said. “I’m foreman of this
job today, and I’m givin’ you the sack
Dumas Hired Writers
Alexandre Dumas, the celebrated
French writer, was perhaps the fore-
runner of those modern comic strip
artists who have a staff of other art-
ists to do a large part of the detail
work of their strips. Dumas, after the
great success of his “Monte Cristo”
and “Three Musketeers,” launched on
a program of works so extensive that
no one man could hope to carry it out.
He hired a number of young writers
to do the writing and then he went
over the work, changed it as he saw
fit and had it published in his name.
Despite the severe criticism which fol-
lowed this action upon his part, he
continued to carry out the practice.
While he made a large income, he lost
everything through extravagance and
venturing into wild schemes. He died
penniless in 1870.—Washington Star.
Tooth Preservative Preserves
A perfect dentifrice—an absolute
tooth preservative. And no worry
about film on the teeth. To the con-
trary the film is to be preserved.
Here’s its name: Siparuna archeri.
It’s a hard name, but great things usu-
ally require big names. Its worth is
attested by an American botanist and
explorer. He discovered it in the rain-
drenched jungles of the Choco region
of northwestern Colombia. The abori-
gines of that region, the explorer says,
insist that it is a perfect tooth pre-
servative. The children chew the
leaves of the plant until a film of some
kind is formed over the teeth. Adults
chew them about twice a year to re-
store any worn-off parts of the film.
But this dentrifice has only one slight
drawback—it turns the teeth almost
jet black.—Washington Post.
Ancestral Tomb Looted
Robbers looted the ancestral tomb
of the Manchu Prince Tsai Hsun. All
the costly jewelry buried with the
royal dead was stripped from the tomb
of Prince Tsai llsun’s family, and be-
sides the pearls the robbers escaped
with five jade Buddhas, eight Buddhas
of solid gold, ten silver ingots each
weighing 500 ounces (worth a total
of about $1,875), and a large number
of other valuables.
Here’s what’s next.
