Famous Texas Cattle Are Threatened With Extinction; ll. S. Government Takes a Hand
By BASCOM W. TIMMONS Reporter Staff Correspondent. WASHINGTON. April 25.— The Department of Agriculture in July will aet about the business of rounding up a bunch of Texas Longhorns to be preserved for posterity, Will C. Barnes, assistant forester and chief of gracing of the forest service, said today.
"The first thing I do will be to go to San Antonio and talk to Ike Pryor," Mr. Barnes said today. "I wouldn’t think of trying to get a bunch of longhorns together without talking to Ike Pryor."
The old Texas longhorn, once king of the range, will be preserved against threatening extinction .with the establishment this summer of a permanent herd under government protection. This move will achieve for Will C. Barnes his fondest dream.
Barnes is 69 years old. He spent most of his life on the ranges cf New Mexico and Arixona. He came very near being a Texan one®. He was offered 40,000 acres near Amarillo for $1.25 an acre, 25 cents down, and the rest on easy payments over 40 years. He turned down the offer.
Barnes, the former cowpuncher, today tow how ho first came to love the Texas longhorn.
"I was a young fellow in Arizona," he sadd. “Some one brought in a herd of wiry longhorns. I think they came from somewhere between the Bio Grande and the Neuces—anyway they came from the prickier pear country in Texas As years went on I saw the longhorn superseded on the range by the shorthorn. I resolved to do what I could to save them from entire extinction.”
Barnes made a ten-year fight end at the last session. Congress appropriated $3,000 to purchase a sufficient number of longhorns to establish a permanent herd. The
herd is to be established in the Wichita National Format in Oklahoma.
Texans have shown great Interest in the preservation of the longhorns, Mr,. Barnes said today. A number of cattlemen have offered to give the pick of their herds, j However, tho law is such that tho government will have to pay some- J thing for them, probably a dollar j a head.
Mr. Barnes gives to Senator John B. Kendrick of Wyoming, a former Texan, a large part of the credit in putting through ! the appropriation. It was due to I the senator's eloquence, he said.j I This eloquence of Senator Ken-! idrick, apparently was regnant in lits power', considering that Mr. Barnes was only asking for $3,000. j
Nevertheless it is assured now that the longhorn will not be allowed to become extinct, and Mr. Barnes says that when he est ab-1 ’ishes this herd he doesnt care much whether any other achievements crown his life. He is particularly gratified with the thought that the famous cattle will be preserved through his endeavor. To, be permitted to select the chosen j cattle in that section of Texas where he knows the best specimens now may be found affords him the greatest pleasure.

Coal Shipment In Britain Increase
(By Universal Service)
LONDON, May 7.—Positions in the coal industries of the United States and Great Britain have been exactly changed with the passage of a single year’s time. Britieh coal operators who last year were facing bankruptcy owing to the groat British mine strike while at the same time American coal operators were growing fat on the export trade, now ^re recouping their losses by Chipping coal to market* formerly supplied by the United States.
According to figures recently disposed, coal shipments from South Wa I os in a week's time showed an increase of 17P,0®0 tons. The shipments reached the exceptionally high total Of 573,310 tons. and established a fresh record for weekly shipments during recent years.
In industrial quarters It is an opera secret that there has been a material lessening of American competition In markets supplied by Welsh coal exporters with the opening of the bituminous atrike in the United States.
Scottish shipments as a whole also Increased 15,000 tons. Proof that this rah* may bo attributed to the American strike is aeon in
Young men l iking the domestic science course at the Overbrook ll igti School In Philadelphia WAI never starve if tln*y elude marriage Here you see Maurice Topiln rolling biscuit clough while Bernard Simonson removes a golden-brown ed loaf of bread front the oven.
BY SISTER MARY,
NEA Service Writer.
PHILADELPHIA. May 5 —Overbrook High Softool here has introduced a course In domestic science for boys.
This procedure on the part of the I school ie interesting and unprecedented as well a55 significant. It puts boys and girls on a now basis of equality and acknowledges the economic Independence of womankind.
Just why should the idea of teaching boys to cook be startling? They surely do most of th# eating so why not each them to do most of their cooking as well? The future wife can demand cake that father used to bake and long for salad such as father used to mix!
Seriously, if women are sharing the financial burden it’s only f«lr that men should share the domestic responsibilities. If “Dolly’’ rushes
the fact that the Northeast cob st exports for Scotland fell by 3'‘.OOO tons. Th# Northeast coast is chiefly affected by continental competition, and thl# is as severe as ever.
home from her office one night to gef dinner, let “John’* do the same the next evening. The teaching of
I cooking to boys seems to accept the fact that women are not going “to
stay put” in the kitchen but are be-1 ins accorded an equal right with men to continue their profusion or trade after marriage without sacrifice of home or necessary leisure , hours.
The course in the Overbrook High School Includes general dietetics as well as cooking. Whether j boys ever learn to “bake a cherry pie as quick as a cat can wink its eye” or not they should know something of the chemistry of foods and the fine art of combining them-Food keeps us well and “as a man j es ie th so is he” to a great degree, If the men folk learn how to choose j their foods, thou*-* moats which must be eaten away from close feminine ■ supervision will be far more whole-j some and less likely to cause diges-i "Ive disturbances. The eternal diet of meat and potatoes and pie to which man is prone if left to his own devises is not conducive to long life and happiness. But lf the average man had learned along
with his geometry and rhetoric the actual necessity of eating fresh vegetbales and green salads he would cheerfully and eagerly include them in his daily bill of fare.
There are many dishes in which boys should excel girls. Theta* greater muscular strength makes the concocting of mixtures requiring much beating a simple task and not tho physical strain many girls find it
Even’though boys never actually use their culinary skill, their knowledge of tho art will make them far more appreciative of the efforts of others and they will gain a keener enjoyment from their food.
