Texas Longhorns Trail Through the West ¥ Bv ALEX LOUIS and i). B. HARDEMAN Capitol Station, Austin, 'IVxas (Copyright, 1940, by the ttouthwent Magitzinr Co.) PERHAPS no other animal has had a more vital part in the building of a nation than the Texas Long- horn behind whose thundering hoofs four score years ago hardy pio- neers rode to civilize the West. Many are the tales told of the Long- horn's fierce nature, his daring, his speed and stamina. But more fascinat- ing than any of these is the story of how he paved the way for the economic development of the West. The beginning of the Longhorn goes back more than four centuries when a herd of noble Andalusian cattle were brought to Mexico by the Spanish con- quistadores. The Andalusian cattle were descendants of the stately Long- horns introduced into Spain by the Moors. Conquest of Mexico by Cortez was followed by establishing missions and fortresses all the way up to and across the Rio Grande into Texas. To the missions the early ...

Hoover Asks Help for Finns ®N his wide appeal for contributions '• to the Finnish Relief Fund, Inc., Former President Hoover said: "Under ceaseless aerial attack the Finnish women and children have been driven from the towns into the countryside in the midst of Arctic win- ter. Their breadwinners at the front are working for the army. Our repre- sentative in Finland reports that 500,- 000 are destitute already and that desti- tution is increasing toward 900,000." Mr. Hoover said he realized that many demands are made upon the American people for "our own destitute and for pressing needs abroad" and that he did not wish to see support of these diminish. However, he added that "we still have reserves which en- ables us to aid Finland."

TEXAS FARM NEWS REPORTS J. M. Allen, hog raiser, near San Antonio, (Bexar county), has completed an ex- periment that proves turtle- feed is good for hogs. He trapped the turtles as a sub- stitute feed when the corn crop in his section failed. The turt'e meat was chopped up and cooked before feeding to the hogs. After five months feeding on turtle meat and two weeks finishing on corn, the hogs brought top price. WHY WOULDN'T PRINCE ALBERT ROLL FASTER? IT'S CRIMP CUT!

KIRKEBY Managing Director KIRKEBU HOTELS DIET FUNDAMENTALS As is now so well known, the fundamentals of a diet to promote growth, health and energy, are milk, fruit and vegetables. To allot the food money best to meet these basic requirements and to at- tain the diet most beneficial to health and well-being, Dr. Henry C. Sherman, of Colum- bia University, has devised a budget, not in dollars and cents, but in proportions of various categories of foods. He suggests that at least as much of a household budget dollar be spent for milk and milk products as for meat, fish or poultry; and that, again, at least as much of the dollar should go for fruit and vegetables as for meat, fish and poultry. This plan, it will be seen, divides the food money rough- ly into thirds and can be ad- justed to most any budget. Emphasis is placed upon milk, indispensable to an all-around adequacy diet, to be streng...
