A New Kind
Of Roll Flavoring
If you like your rolls with
mustard and tabasco sauce, go
ahead and follow Thursday’s
Family Favorites recipe faith
You see, we made a mistake.
A line that said “Add a dash
of Tabasco sauce and lYz ta
blespoons of dark mustard”
was under the recipe for re
frigerator rolls, when it should
have been under the recipe for
shrimp remoulade.
We’re sorry, but maybe those
rolls would taste good with the
added flavoring.

Fort Bliss Charge
EL PASO, Tex., Sept. 29—CP)—
Ft. Bliss officials began an inves
tigation of a charge by a Negro
congressman that the Army post
permits racial discrimination.
Rep. Adam Clayton Powell Jr.,

dent Eisenhower.
A Ft. Bliss spokesman said au
thorities will investigate and add
ed: “We do not condone any
segregation or discrimination at
Ft. Bliss.” He also said that there
is no segregation in service clubs,
officers’ clubs, barracks, housing
areas or anywhere else on the post.
Powell sent the”' following tele
gram to the President:
“I have just discovered segrega
tion and discrimination at Fort
Bliss, Tex, 591st Military Police
Squad. An order was posted Sep
tember 21 ‘for Caucasians only.’
In the event that this is denied, I
have just procured the original
order signed by the company com
mander and will be happy to turn
this over to you.”

TERESA WRIGHT says: "Up to 16, my knowledge of acting
had been gleaned from seeing movies. When I saw my first
professional play, that was it: I only wanted to act. I got into
high school plays, wrestled props at Provincetown, understudied,
sat for months in producers’ reception rooms. One rainy
night, sick with a cold, I read for a good role, and got it!”
