Committee work seems to be fretting better and house work on hills appears to be more careful than for two or three sessions. Purine the war legislators bo came careless; the burden of oth er cares and duties interfering, perhaps. Committees were prone to let bills go through with only cursory reading and analysis. Now such sloppy work is being caught on the floor and commit tees, too. are being more watch ful. It is a good sign. An interim committee has made a report on county salaries which in most instances would cu :;ily increase them. It has now been introduced in the senate and is in the hands of a committee there. In the 22nd district most of the officials would receive $3500 per year which is an in crease of $1100 or slightly under 50 percent. The custom has been for coun ty courts and budget committees to recommend the salary scale which is almost universally ap proved by the legislature if the report is signed by the local offi cials. Legislators were tired of the lot of bills about salaries of which they knew nothing and named an interim committee. There is a considerable differ ence in the work required of county officials which can hardly be taken care of in a blanket bill and this will presumably be brought to the attention of the legislators. Some counties have a recorder, for instanoe, who does part of the work of the clerk. The number of deputies varies greatly- Another move would give to county courts the job of setting pay of county officials, except their own and something like this ,'ONE POST NO. 95, AMERICAN LEGION Announces A Big D ance SATURDAY EVENING FEBRUARY 5 IONE LEGION HALL ADMISSION: $1.00 per person, tax included Music by The Rhythm aires may result from the Interim com mittee work. A bill is ready for introduction by Representatives Peterson and Krench to change the distribution formula of highway funds to counties. Counties now get 19 per cent. The basis for distribution is the numbci of motor vehicle registrations. The proposed law would use car registrations, area and miles of primary and secondary high ways. Counties in the 22nd dis trict would have their portion of the fund increased three to four times if the bill passed. Although such a bill has been introduced before it has received little support. Giving it a new chance is that the report of the highway interim committee shows great discrepancies be tween the "needs" of the coun ties and the amount of money they have been receiving. This report strengthens the argument of the proponents of the bill for j redistribution and some new for mula to give additional money to the larger and less populous counties seems entirely possible. ... . The session has not moved very fast since the first week. Gath ering of information by the new members goes on apace but they can hardly expect to learn all about so intricate a business of legislating in a couple of weeks. The main problem for the leg islature to resolve is that of trans ferring the income and excise taxes to the general fund. It is agreed that the present "surplus" funds cannot be so transferred because of the opin ion of the supreme court last summer. The only way such funds can be used would be by a vote of the people over the six percent limitation. What will be transferred would be future funds, collected after July 1. If these are so transferred there would be no property off set funds in Oregon and property would be susceptible to a prop erty tax for state purposes. The additional millage would be around 30 which would double many taxes. Pressures of tax spending groups on the legisla ture would be increased.

Lincoln's birthday, St. Valentine's day, and George Washington's birthday, bring to mind log cabins, hearts and flow ers, cherries and hatchets all in a jumble. So let's take the fam ous men this week with a host of entertainment ideas for each one! First Lincoln's birthday. Per haps this will be limited to a family gathering. A special des sert will remind them of the hol iday and will give a festive air to the family meal. Lincoln Pud ding is really a good bread pud ding made in the usual way, but using only egg yolks. When the pudding is almost done, remove from the oven and spread with grape jelly. Top this with a fluf fy meringue made from left-over egg whites. Spread the meringue smooth. For the fancy touch, trace the outline of a log cabin on top with raisins. Pop into the oven again to brown. Bread Pudding 2 cups stale bread crumbs 1 quart scalded milk 3 eggs 12 cup sugar Grape Jelly 2 Tbsp sugar for meringue Soak crumbs in hot milk until soft; then add the egg yolks mix ed with 12 cup sugar, pour into a baking dish set in a pan of wa ter, and bake in a slow oven (250 350 degrees) about an hour, or until custard is set. When cool, spread a thick layer of the jelly on top. Beat the egg whites until stiff, add the 2 Tbsp sugar grad ually, and beat until stiff, spread this meringue on top of the jam and place in the oven until a del. ft'..- t. t When you turn out a light thst isn't needed, you're protecting your own electric service.

Serve hot or cold with cream. Another very special, very sim ple Lincoln's birthday treat is Lincoln log ice cream roll. Ask for it at your ice cream store and serve with homemade choc olate isauce. Washington's birthday calls for a real party whether it be a club meeting, afternoon bridge, teen age jamboree or buffet sup per for the crowd. You will want to go all out for the patriotic mo tif on Washington's birthday. Make soldiers for favors use gumdrops for the body and head, and pipe cleaners for the arms and legs.
