        Television in the kitchen? Many housewives (and their husbands) would object strenuously because of the distracting influence TV could have in this “work room.”
        Other wives, however, would be sure to hail kitchen television as a morale booster, and point out how ideal it would be for cooking programs and shows on the subject of the home.

    (By Funson Edwards)
    Speckled pup, a mongrel breed,
    A mixture of hound not pedigreed.
    I think of the trouble you will see,
    In protecting the kid just for me.
    The pointer and collie envy your stay,
    To gnaw at the bond they’d run you away.
    They seem to know you were born mixed up,
    Two kinds of blood, you speckled pup.
    But you earn your keep every day,
    Chasin’ in the cows as they stray.
    The wag of your tail tells to me,
    My faithful friend you want to be.

        Bread for all Morgan County cafeterias will be purchased by bid next year. Bakeries will be invited to bid on bread for all schools operating a cafeteria. It is believed that bread will be purchased at a more reasonable price since each bakery will have an opportunity to bid on bread for all schools.
