In the present and prospective in
dustrial situation Mr. Coolidge saw
justification of the tariff and ho again
pledged an administration of justice
by the government in Its relations
with business. The policy of conserv
ing to the American producer "the
right of first opportunity in the home
market," he said, has resulted in a
"very fair approximation of demo
cracy in industry."
He also promised full assistance
by the national government in fight

In discussing tho government's re
lations with business, the president
declared enforcement of the law was
essential, but that it was necessary
also for industry to exercise the same
vigilance. Ho lauded industry for its
recognition of its responsibilties to
ward Its employes.
The agencies of the government
were placed at the disposal of in
dustry by Mr. Coolidge, who men
tioned specifically that the federal
trade board "has been devised for the
purpose of safeguarding your rights,
of protecting you from unfair trade
practices and admonishing and cor
recting you if you are wrong."
Justifying the tariff, the president
declared "the towering stature of our
industrial structure as we see it today
is the best, is indeed the complete
vindication of this policy."
"There has been at some times and
In sonio quarters a disposition to

MA IN WINTER tfpiltBook
By DOUGLAS MALLOCH j
T GUESS I love the things of old
As well ns Father does.
But I ain't crazy for the cold
Like he Is dear me suz !
Of course In winter days, ray dears,
A lot of fun we had
But when you git along In years
A coal-stove ain't so bad.
I recollect occasions when
We traveled in a Sleigh
And I was nearly frozen then,
I recollect today.
Of course It's very nice to come
Where woods are white and green,
But winter's Just as purtj' from
Inside a limousine.
Perhaps to drive for twenty mile
Half froze was lots of fun,
But Father ruther makes me smile
Why, now he hates to run
Around the corner to a show ! . . .
But, drive or dance or what,
A movie for amusement, though
Is handler a lot.
And when he talks about the way
Those smartles used to wash
Our faces In the snow well, say,
I want to fight, by gosh !
However funny It may seem
To Father now, perhaps
I recalled we had no cream
Them days to cure the chaps.
They say that It Is "distance lends
Enchantment to the view" ;
The flight of time as well, my friends,
Makes things look good to you4
So Father of the days of old
To talk will never tire,
When safe and snug from wind and
Beside a dandy fire.

IS IT GORMAN?
T'ORMAN seems to have first been
used as a surname in Ireland, but
the first name from which It was de
rived was Anglo-Saxon and was used
throughout the British Isles In early
days. This was the name Gormund.
Mund In these old first names had
the significance of protection and the
first syllable "gor" may have come
from a word meaning war. The name
Gormund then would mean wur-pro-tectlon.
Eventually the first name
came to be Gorman and this was
adopted in Ireland ns a last name,
with O'Gormnn, which meant simply
son of Gormund.
The Gorninns and O'Goruians In this
country all seem to have come from
Ireland. Both families have con
tributed members to congress. There
Is Senator James K. o'Gorman and
there was a Senator Arthur Pue Gor
man of Maryland and a Representa
tive James Gorman "from Indiana.
Senator Arthur Pue Gorman was
born In Maryland in lS.'t!. The son
of Peter and grandson of John Gor
man, who came to this country from
Ireland about 1400, settling in Harris
burg, Pa. From that state they went
to Maryland and there the family
James Sedgwick, n grandson of Ed
ward Gorman of county Down. Ire
land, was representative from Indiana.
Mutr There are two suggested
sources for this name. It Is certainly
sometimes derived from the word
mulr, which Is a north of England and
Scotch form for moor. The other sug
gestion is that it came from the me
dieval muur, the man who kept the
raewi the place where the hawks
were kept while moulting. There whs
uch a person attached to every feu
dal cattle while hawking was In
fashion and It would he but natural
If some of these men derived their
surname from their occupation.

Take one pound of dried beans,
soak over night and drain off the
water in the morning, after bringing
to the boiling point ; repeat the drain
ing twice, then cook at a simmering
point for Ave hours, or longer, until
the beans are soft enough to put
through a colander. After the drain
ing add one-half pound of salt pork
nnd let It cook with the beans five
hours. The pork should be so well
cooked that it will pass through the
colander, if so desired.
For those who enjoy tripe, this
recipe will be liked :
Use honeycomb tripe, wash well
and put Into a large kettle of cold
water, add a teaflpoonful of salt and
a pinch of soda, bring quickly to the
boiling point, then put back on the
stove and simmer slowly for four;
hours. At this time remove the tripe,
drain it, nnd after dipping In a fritter
batter, fry until brown in butter.
Measure one cupful of crackers, af

raisins, the seeded kind. When partly
cooled add four beaten eggs, salt, spice
to taste, and pour Into a buttered
baking dish. Bake one hour, stirring
often to prevent the raisins sinking
