Published every Thursday. THURSDAY, MARCH 6. 1941 The following editorial by Senator C. Way- Brooks printed in the New York Daily News, the  newspaper with the largest circulation in America, should be of interest to all of our read- ers, pro and con: cr.00,A,rr00R BROOKS Senator C. Way- ,.r,v ..... lnd Brooks, (Rep., S00KS HIS MIND m.) delivered his jl el speech in the Senate last Friday. He 0 in opposition to the Dictatorship Bill. It a masterly speech. He was congratulated only by those on his side of the issue, but by the opposition. Senator Brooks is still a man, and it may be thought that he is al- an amateur as a statesman. However, on this particular subject he has somewhat special intimate knowledge. Senator Brooks served with the Marines in the War. He was wounded seven times. He re- the D.S.C. (for bravery) both from the Ary the Navy. France gave him the Crolx de He lost a brother n the War. His father two other brothers served overseas. He was from service when on!y 21 and is now 44 years old. Some quotations from Senator Brooks' speech show why it was so well-received: "You sav, 'We'l fiqhtl' I insist we might bet- tar say, here on th,s floor, Our boys wdl figh ' Some people don t seem to understand: This a continuous fight over there. It may last for- and you can't stop it. Neither can I. But !if we work together, we can save civilization here. "There is no glamour for the men who fight wars. The glamour is for lady radio speakers their men counterparts. "For the men who do the fightlncj and have to say about the declaration at war, there suffering and death." deadly parallels are cited by Senator Brooks: "November, 1916--A powerful Democratic President , re.elected on the slogan, 'He kept us out of wad' "November, 1940--A powerful President, re- elected on his pledge that the country would not involved in foreign war. "January, 1917  The re-elected President personal friend, his personal represen- House--to talk secretly with the rul- Brs of the British Empire. "January, 1941 m The re-elected President to Europe his own personal representative Hopkinsto talk with the rulers of the pire. "January, I917--The powerful President who seld, as he asked for unusual powers, '1 am not or contemplating war or any steps that may Ira it.' February, 1941mThe powerful President has ,nted his own bill that gives complete author- to him alone to choose our enemies or name our .swat, in 1917, was war!  i I KNOW SOMETHING GOOD ABOUT YOU-- Wouldn't this old world be better, If the folks we meet would say: "1 know something good about you", And treat us just that way! I Wouldn't it be fine and dandy, If each hand-cLasp warm and true, Carried with it this assurance: "1 know something good about you"! Wouldn't things here be more pleasant If the good that's in us all Were the only thing about us That folks bothered to recall! Wouldn't life be lots more happy If we'd praise the good we see, For there's such a lot of goodness In the worst of you and me! Wouldn't it be nice to practice This fine way of thinking, too--- 'Y6u know something good about me, I know something good about you" Contributed by Mrs. Walter Kline, Beason. (Folks would be a lot more happy if they could only see it that way!) $$ $ $$ Do you give much thought to the nutritional value of the lead materials used in the recipes you prepare for your fam- ily'; Paaes and pages of information concerning vitamins and m'inerals, and the important part they play in building up and maintaining good health, are wriHen: food charts giving the value of food materials are prepared: all for our benefit and we should take the time to study them, to understand why they are important, to make sure we're gelling an adequate amount of vitamins each day, tc insure good health We should serve foods that are rich in certain vitamins, often, but not in 'the same old way' all the time, for the family will soon tire of them. Whole-grain cereals contain an excellent amount of Thi- amin (vitamin B I), vital health food element, necessary for growth, energy and vitality, but it cannot be stored up in the body and everyone should have a new supply daily. Let's take one of them, oatmeal, for instance, to talk about today. May- be you're thinking "My'-family doesn't like oatmeal as a er-" eel". Well, oatmeal can be used many other ways, adding flavor and increasing the nutritional value of desserts, soups, meatloaf, patties or cookies. Maybe you'd like to start out by trying the following dessert. Looking at it from a nutritional standpoint, you get vitamin I1 in the oats, vitamins A, [1 and G in the prunes, which also contain an excellent amount of iron mineral See how well I know my vitamins (fter looking it up). Besides that, you'll think it's a delicious dessert. PRUNE WHIP 1 cups cooked prunes 4 tablespoor sugar i cup cooked oats (cooled) 1 egg" white teaspoon cinnamon  up whipping cream Pinch of salt in oats Remove pits from prunes, cut in pieces. Add oafs, cinna- mon and bout half the sugar. Beef egg whites until stiff, add- ing the remaining sugar. Fold into the prune mixture with the whipped cream. Chill well before serving. Serve plain or with whipped cream. (Serves 5-6). ' SUNSHINE CAKE 1 cup cake flour 1 teaspoon cream tartar 7 egg" yolks 1 cups sugar 7 egg whites  cup water Beat egg yolks until thick. Beat egg whites stiff, adding cream of tartar. Boil water and sugar together until it makes a soft ball in cotd wafer. Add syrup to egg whites, beating un- til cool. Fold in yolks, then flour.
