Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - January 24, 1962, Abilene, Texas "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS 81ST YEA ABILENE, TEXAS, WEDNESDAY 24, PAGES IN TWO SECTIONS Associated Prett PAGE ONE PuffJ today's children live in j the luxury of '.vaccine, television, central healing, automobiles and frozen foods. Hut many a poor, pampered kid is giovving up in dire neglect, growing up without knowing the wonders', of some wonderful foods seemingly disappear- ing from t-hc menus of many modern families. Take, for example, dump- lings, Res tau ran I folk tell us, and you can sec evidence when the menu offers them, that dump- lings are a hot jtem. Many of us rarely get 'em at home any more. The dictionary, in its cold, calculated language, says dump- ling is "a small, light mass of baking powder biscuit dough cooked either by boiling as soup or slew or by steaming or baking, especially when it con- tains fruil." The fellow who wrote that doesn't know what a stock tank is, doesn't say "sure enough" ami "makes dinner" instead of "cooks" it. Dumplings, unwritten law re- quires, go with chicken. They arc hot and heavenly, lender nnd lough enough lo hold to- gether, dripping bullcr and "gravy." Dumplings properly made are compounded of a pinch of this, some of thai and a dash of the other. Masters of the magic which turns this into dumplings unfortunately, have some dif- ficulty translating Iheir art into of a recipe. After all, how much is 'a pinch? How can you describe that certain feel -of; dough when- it- is per- fection? But one dumpling artisan has tried iQ'jtprnjjcjtiic mystery and here is Kef; story of how the delicacy comes about: Sift one and a halt cups flour, one teaspoon baking pow- der and a half teaspoon of salt.' Cut in a fourth cup of shorten- ing and add a "litlle" milk. Keep the dough as dry as pos- sible. Roll out with "a lot" of flour and let sland, dusted in flour, for a half-hour or hour to dry. Flour helps make Die "gravy." Meanwhile, boil a chicken, remove meat nnd cut in chunks. In a big slew pan put a cup of milk, two-thirds cup of water, all the chicken broth you have and a quarter pound but- ter. Dump in chunks of chicken nnd let all that strike a boil. Drop in dumplings you've sliced from the rolled dough. Cover. Boil fast for Iwo to three minutes, then lower heat and cook slowly for 10 minutes. Stir wilh a slotted spoon to separate the dumplings. Cook a few more minules. Eat and enjoy il. Sad biscuit, those flat, crusty ones which rise no higher than (his Fried pics, apricot, of course, soggy, delicious. Are they disappear- ing delicacies?

Man Perishes in House Fire Here A semi-invalid 79-year-old Latin; American man, (rapped by flames in his two-room frame home at Stafford Avc., was burned to death Tuesday afternoon. Firemen found the body of Lou- is Torres Resales, a native of Mexico, on Ihe edge of his bed shortly after they had extinguish- ed the fire lhal had swept through the thin partitions, leav- ing only the outer shell standing. District Chief Ewing Nelson said a butane stove, located only four feet from the man's bed, could have exploded, causing the blaze. He said butane fumes were still strong in the room when fire fighters began putting out Ihe iasl embers. Investigation into Ihe cause of Ihe fire is continuing. Resales lived in the weather- beaten house by himself. The structure is situated just behind a house occupied by his brother, Charles Resales, The elderly man's sister-in-law first noticed Ihe flames and turned in an alarm at p.m. Police Officers H. W. Williams and Lloyd Skiles, who were pa- troling the area in a scout car, said they saw smoke coming from the house when they were about three blocks away.

See photo Pg, 3-A Ice Fades AsWarmup Underway An icy glaze winch covered area roads began to fade Tuesday and chances are good for a slight warmup under clear to partly cloudy skies through Thursday. The cold front, which brought snow and ice lo this section, had moved out of the state Tuesday. Another cold air mass has been spotted in northwest Canada, but there arc no indications of more severe weather for awhile, Abi- lene meteorologist David Mc- Laughlin said. The U. S.

Wednesday's high should be from 45 lo 50 degrees, compared to Tuesday's high of The mer- cury hit a low of 18 Tuesday, but the low reading Wednesday night is expected to be only about 40. The predicted high Thursday will be 55 to 60. Many area schools remained closed for the second day Tuesday because of Ihe cold. Most schools probably will he opened again Wednesday because of more mod- erate wealhcr condilions. Al Brcckenridgc, schools will be re- opened Wednesday after ice disap- peared Tuesday and the tempera lure reached about 30 degrees. Final Passage Postponed By JOHN BECKLEn WASHINGTON (AP) A poslal rate bill that would raise Ihe cost of first class letter mail Irom four cenls to five cenls won House ap- iroval Tuesday. A technicality docked final action. Republicans proles ted lhat the lew Democratic leadership hac! resorted to a gag rule in an effort to pass the bill. As it emerged from (he day- iony session, the bill would add a penny to the cost of air mail as vvell as first class Idlers air mail now is seven cents and would increase rales for mailing newspapers, magazines and ad- vertising circulars. It ivould yield an estimated million a year, wliich is mil- lion more than the Kennedy ad- ministration asked last year. The Senate slill has lo act on a similar measure. Although million of the new revenue would be picked up from first class and air mail users, nearly all Ihe wrangling was over the olhcr Iwo categories.

Editor COLORADO CITV Uncle Sam's military has capabilities equal lo any aggressor, former Navy Sec. John Connally told a Colorado City Chamber of Com- merce banquet Tuesday. "Bui the American people must realize the locality of the struggle against Communism."

Center Bond Vole Slated At Ballinger BALL1NGER (HNS) A petj. have objected lo the proposed in- creases, using full-page newspa- per advertisements in Washington this week, and their representa- tives crowded lire House gallery. Things went badly for their side on the floor as individual mem- bers bolted from the leadership. They voted for increases in third class rates that were larger than liad been requested by the ad- ministration or the House Posl Of- fice Committee. Rep. Ken Hcchler, D-W.Va., led the fight against whal he called 'unwanted circulars, promotion schemes, worthless material and sheer junk." He won allies Irom both parties in support of his amendment to raise third class rales to a level he said would make them pay their own way. "Housewives arc tired of being conveyor bells between the mail box and the waste said P.ep. Morris K. Udall, D-Ariz. Hechler's amendment wa adopted by voice vote. Also adopted was an amend- ment by Rep. Arnold Olson, D- Monl., stiffening the proposed rates on magazines sent out un- solicited as advertising material. Olscn's higher rate, adopted by voice vole, would add million lo Ihe revenue in the bill. The House resisted an effort to cul the proposed increase for newspapers of one half cent a piece this July 1 and another half cent July 1, An amendment by Rep. James C. Davis, D-Ga., lo eliminate Ihe increase was de- feated by a IOB-50 standing vote. Afler Hechler's amendment was adopted the House leadership felt it might be in danger of losing control of Ihe bill and forced through an agreement to end all debale by p.m. The procedure cut off many members who had planned to of fer amendments. As a result sev- eral congressmen said they would not support the bill when il comes lo a vole Wednesday. However, Ihe leaders were con fidcnt they had the votes to pass Ihe measure. The technicality that blocked fi- nal action was raised by Rep II. R, Gross, R-Iowa, who protest cd bitterly about gag rule. He de- manded an engrossed or printed copy of the bill be presented he (ore (he final vote, Such a copy could not be prepared quickly so final aclion was postponed. .ssue election for the construction of a Community Center was pre- sented Tuesday lo Ihe Ballinger Commission.
