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. However, the law is such that the government will have to pay something for them, probably a dollar i a head.
Mr. Barnes gives to Sen*! ator John B. Kendrick of Wyoming. a former Texan, a large part
of the credit in putting through I the appropriation. It was due to the senator’s eloquence, he said. This eloquence of Senator Ken-) drick, apparently was regnant In I its power, considering that Mr. Barnes was only asking for $3,003.

The old Texas longhorn, oncej king of tho range, will be preserved against threatening extinction .with the establishment this summer of a permanent herd un-| der government protection. This move will achieve for Will C. ■ Barnes his fondest dream.
Barnes is 69 years old. He spent j most of his life on the ranges cf New Mexico and Arizona. He came very near being a Texan once. He •was offered 4 0,006 acres near, Amarillo for JI.26 an acre, 25 centsi down, and the rest on easy payments over 40 years He turned) down the offer.
Barnes, the former eowpunch©r, i today told how he first came to love the Texas longhorn.
"I was a young fellow in Ari-) zona,” he said. “Rome one brought in a herd of wiry longhorns. I think they came from somewhere between the Rio Grande and the Neuces—-anyway they came from the prlckley pear country in Texas As years went on I saw the longhorn superseded on the range by the shorthorn.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 • nd at the last session, Congress appropriated $3,000 to purchase a sufficient number of longhorns to establish a permanent herd. The

According to figures recently dis- j closed, coal shipments from South Wales In a week’s time showed an [increase of 170,000 tons. The shipments reached the exceptionally high total of 673,310 tons, and es-, tablished a fresh record for weekly ’shipments during recent years.
I In industrial quarters It is an [open secret that there has been a I material lessening of American competition In markets supplied by t Welsh coal exporters with the open-j rig of the bituminous strike in the United States-
Scottish shipments as a whole j also increased 16,000 tons. Proof that this raise may be attributed 'to the American strike is seen in
part of the ting and unprecedented as well ss significant. It puts boys and girls on a new basis of equality and acknowledges the I economic Independence of woman-: kind.
Just why should the idea of teaching boys to cook be startling?! They surely do most of the eating so why not each them to do most of their cooking as well? Tho 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 fair that men should share the domestic responsibility. If "Dolly” rushes
