There’s something different,
finer, about the smooth, firm
feel of a professionally launder-
ed shirt—it sets more snugly
about the neck and shoulders and
you know it will remain clean
That’s the advantage of pro-
fessional laundering. Our mod-
ern presses and improved meth-
ods of washing give your shirts
a lasting body which resists soil
and insures better wear.

SHERMAN, June 4.—Wood alcohol,
carelessly imbibed by 10 pranking
Austin College students, today' had
taken two lives and left eight others
ill, as college heads probed the cam-
Dead after drinking wood alcohol
pilfered from a school laboratory
were: Durwood Newman, 19, and
James Garrett, 20, life-long friends
and roommates of Athens, Texas.
Dr. E. B. Tucker, president of the
college, said the boys admitted break-
ing into the chemistry building Sun-
day night and taking a quantity of
the methyl alcohol.
The board of regents, convening in
annual session, investigated the trag-
edy. Dr. Tucker said the prank “was
against all college regulations.”
The deaths cast a pall of gloom
over the student body as senior stu-
dents prepared for the 86th annual
commencement exercises tonight. Both
the dead students were sophomores
and had starred, on freshman football
and basketball teams last season.
Newman and Garrett were strick-
en ill before the supper hour at the
mess hall last night. Their room-
mate, Wallace Johnson, said both
boys, although nauseated and suffer-
ing great pain, refused medical aid.
Johnson said he nursed his friends
for several hours, and then called Bill
Pierce, football coach. The two
youths were rushed to a hospital.
Early today Newman died in con-
vulsions. Shortly after noon Gar-
rett, who had, been fighting death for
several hours, succumbed.
Physicians said they could have
saved the lives of both boys had
they known the nature of their ill-
ness. The stricken lads had insisted
food, and not the wood alcohol, caus-
ed their illness.
Finally, participants in the prank
admitted to college authorities that
they had taken the alcohol from the
Prayer Meeting at Baptist Church
The regular weekly prayer service

ceive a hearty welcome. The regu-
lar business session of the church
will be at this time.

The Home Owners’ Loan Corpora-
tion was authorized by congress to
accept applications from distress
home owners who are threatened with
the loss of their homes through fore-
closure for a period of thirty days.
The local attorney for the Home Own-
trs’ Loan Corporation, J. J. Byrne,
who has his office in the Peoples Na-
tional bank building received this in-
formation from the San Antonio di-
visional office, together with the fol-
1st. The applicant must have been
in involuntary default on his home
loan on June 13, 1933, and unable
to carry or refund his present mort-
gage, unless it can be shown to the
corporation’s satisfaction that a de-
fault occurring later than June 13,
1933, was the result of unemploy-
ment or other misfortune beyond the
applicant’s control. The corporation
was created to protect honest home
owners who are in temporary diffi-
culty, and not for the purpose of
saving lenders from the results of
i their own mistakes in making ex-
| cessive loans, or lending to persons
I not entitled to credit.
2nd. The past record of the appli-
cant for integrity is a vital factor.
3rd. To redeem the home from for-
ced sale or voluntary surrender, suc^
sale'or surrender must have taken
place since January 1, 1930.
4th. The applicant lmlst be in ac-
tual distress with his mortgage in-
debtedness, and threatened with the
loss of his home by foreclosure.
5th. The property must be used by
the owner as his home or held by
him as his homestead and, as a rule,
it must have been his home on June
6th. Ordinary farm property is not
eligible unless the applicant draws his
main livelihood from non-farm accu-
7th. No applicant will be granted
a loan if such refinancing is. intend-
ed only to protect a bank loan or
other business obligation.
8th. The Corporation will not re-
finance the home of an owner who
can continue to carry his present loan.
9th. If the applicant is able to se-
cure assistance through local refin-
ancing institutions, then, the corpo-
ration will not consider his applica-
If the applicant’s case comes with-
in the above conditions, then he should
promptly make application through
the local attorney’s office for assist-
ance, as the Corporation has been re-
stricted to a period of thirty days
on new loans.

ance No. 15, which reads as follows:
