Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - May 29, 1962, Abilene, Texas lie Mm "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT YEAR, NO. 346 ABILENE, TEXAS, TUESDAY MORNING, MAY 29, PAGES IN TWO SECTIONS PAGE Local peaches and plums fell Victim to the late freeze but tile berries escaped. The dews and the blacks are turning color in sandy patches, apples are tak- ing shape on backyard trees that were tardy in blooming and tomato vines, if they have been watered, are speckled with thumbsize green balls. All this signals the start of the when housewives through the ages have imitated the thrift and foresight of the squirrel by storing away delicacies for use on winter dianertables. Home-canning, preserve-brew- Jelly making were until lately necessary, hot, sticky op- erations. How else could you have "fresh" green beans at Thanksgiving and blackberry Jelly for hot biscuits at Christ- inas? Nowadays such custom-made goodies are luxuries. Thanks to modern merchan- dising, frozen vegetables and store-bought jam and jelly are perhaps cheaper and certainly much easier to corns by. Even so, there are yet lucky house- holds where home preservation of food is practiced. The aroma of cooking fruit is the same and juice plus sugar (till equals a sticky mess. But canning operations are changed. Environment and equipment are improved since kitchens are cooler with air conditioning and cooking heat is provided by but- tons and switches. The home freezer has, we're glad to report, put the pressure cooker almost to the back of the shelf. And jelly-making Is more pre- eise, thanks to pectin on the market. Add some and subtract the uncertainty over ultimate consistency. With all the improvements, however, it is still a fact the woman who takes time and trou- ble for these extras for the fam- ily diet is a pretty good gal. You'll notice, too, she's the type who likes to share. Sure as shooting, she'll be out in the neighborhood giving her tasty brew away. If, perchance, hers is a neighborhood of like types, there's much swapping of jelly. This spirit of the enthusiastic good cook is shown in a story the "Cowden Mrs. Thomas Brownlee Sr., Mrs. Cross Payton and Mi's. Marvin Spaulding, tell on their mother, the late Mrs. C. W. Cowden. It was early summer and Mrs. Cowden, a delightful lady, turned her mind to the kitchen arts. In particular, to chow- chow making. Mrs. Cowden hinted and was ignored. She persisted and her hints turned to requests. With great reluctance, those of the family who couldn't es- cape became emmeshed in chow-chow-making. Now chow-chow, for the uni- tiated, is a complicated concoc- tion which involves, among other procedures, dripping. Tie the goo in a cuptowel, hang it on a broom laid across two chairs get nearly back-to-back. Let drip into a dishpan. With Mrs. Cowden calling sig- nals there was much grinding, of tomatoes, peppers, cabbage, onions and whatever goes in- chow-chow There was dripping and cook- ing and hot, weary hours later the chow-chow was jarred and let on the counter for display, all four jars of it. Mrs. Cowden counted calculated: "Now that one is for Mrs. Jenkins, that for Mrs. Jones, that for Mrs. Smith, that for Mrs. Brown." "But the exhausted family wailed, "Where's Mrs. Cowden brushed them aside, "I just made it to give away." And that's a basic part of the philosophy of preserving and canning.

Dr. Doran, speaking at the col- lege's commencement ser- vice Monday night in the College Church, titled his speech "T h e Don't Miss DICK TRACY while on vocation You need not miss Dick Tracy or anything else that happens while you're away.

"How far will you as members of the senior class take Dr Doran challenged the more than 300 graduates after reminding them (hat some things considered essential now will not be ii existence 25 years from now. Four points of the challenge ac cording to Dr. Doran are: "Education must provide to everyone the opportunity to de- velop to his maximum potential. "Education is faced with the re- sponsibility of guiding the indivi- dual so that his success depends on skills mastered and his ability to get along with others. "The education process must lead the individual to realize there are limits lo which he can go, and that he must make peace with God. "And finally, the body of knowl- edge mastered and experiences undergone in college must pro vide a conscious feeling of dedi- cation to those generations who come after us."

He promised the students only three things: they would have an outstanding principal, a strong faculty and one of the finest phys- ical plants in the nation provide! by the community. With these three things, the students themselves have seen the many firsts at the school and have made Cooper an ing school, Wells said. His announcement !hat the class ranked in the top two per cent of the nation in the Iowa Test of Basic Skills brought ap- plause from the audience. By ED MORSE AP Business News Writer YORK stock market Monday suffered its sharpest loss Since Oct. 28, 1929. Blue chips and "growth" stocks were battered unmercifully as in- vestors unloaded stocks from coast to coast. An estimated total of bil- lion dollars was shorn from the quoted value of stocks listed on the New York Stock Exchange, based on the fall in the Associated Press average. The Dow Jones industrial aver- age smashed through a hoped-for support level at around 600, fall- ing 34.95 to steepest loss in the Dow since the Oct. 28, 1929 date when the average lost 38.3 on volume of shares. Monday's volume was even million shares, Ihe largest since July 21, 1933 when shares were traded. The ticker tape was an bout and nine minutes late at the close, the longest lag in the 32 year history of the high-speec licker. During the '29 crash the ticker ran at a slower pace ant was late for hours. The havoc was terrific amonf .he blue chips the highest rated issues.

Back in '29 it was much lower. The Associated Press average of 60 stocks toppled 13.40 to 211.20, with industrials down 17.50, rails down 5.80, and utilities down 9.50, all to new lows for the year. For the AP average, too, it was the worst loss since Oct .28, 1929. Margin calls hit harder than others because of a special technicality allowing those with to purchase the slock to carry their actual stock pur- chases on margin of only 25 per cent. was Ihe most heavily- traded issue, rolling up shares. Standard Oil (New Jer- sey) was second most active, down a share at on shares. Third was General Tele- phone Electronics, off a share at on shares. The sharp drop in the AP average left it at its lowest point since Nov. 4, 1960, when it also stood at 211.20. The Dow Jones industrials were at their lowest level since Oct. 2G, 1960. The purchase of stocks as- hedge against inflation has been the most convincing argument for many investors, and it has pre- vailed generally since the big bull market began in 1949, reaching its crest last December when the Dow industrials reached a peak of U34.91. Although recent slides have been spectacular, stocks actually have been slipping since March 16 when a recovery move peaked out. Reasons for the decline were almost as numerous along Wall Street as "experts" willing to publish their explanations. ;ent down payment is the legal Heavy Absentee Voting Expected Pace of absentee voting shot orward Monday and is expected y observers to be even heavier Tuesday final day to vote by bscntee in the June 2 Demo- ratic runoff primary.
