Jamison got ens of his boats grounded and was unable to keep Crotch from recapturing ore b a rges which Jamison took at La Paz. XVIII.

The 5-pound 4-ounce girl was bcrn yesterday to 44-year-old Mrs. Yohiko Tatake. The 14 children ibe hsd given birth to previously all had died at birth because of the difference in blood types of the mother and father. PFC.

A few hundred yards below the landing lay the bulk of the beached San Diego that had tried to ram them. Ben Goss squeezed into the whcelhouse beside Crotch. "You see her standin down there or. the landing? N A flossy like hcr'll l-e after us fbr some favor. I know!" At the moment Crotch was thinking of another woman and shrugged. For weeks there had been no news of Dreyfus. Somewhere in Ibis trackless region beyond the liver. Queenie was keeping a camp. Queenie, who had spoken to him about loneliness.

It was an odor eldom associated with the river mclls. She said "Captain, I am Lilly Hartman. I am a showgril." He said slowly "So we are to lave entertainment along the land ngs?" "Certainly. We paid fcr our ickets in Yuma. My father wen rack c board the Amador to argue he matter of our belongings, and without warning Jamison steamed .ff." Urotch was touched by a certain -ride behind Lilly Hattman's «mile. He told Gcss sharply "You ake the wheel. I'll show Miss Hartman to a cnbin." Then to the girl he added politely, "We'll try to catch Jamison before he reaches Ihrenberg." An hour later he sat opposite Lilly Hartman in the cramped dining saloon that shared .space with the small airless staterooms on ths top deck. The Chinese had served Ms usual miserable mess of warm- td can goods and ss.lt rreat. "So that's the way it is," she told him earnestly. "We have alv/ays teen circus iseople. Everyone knew my father Lemoync Hartman! Mother taught me to walk tightrope, to dance on the high wires. When she died Father was despondent. AVe came West searching a new life."

Crotch had depth a point beyond whi<3.' she couldn't penetrate, but his utter disdain for Jamison was very clear. She said musingly "Why is it you fight him, Captain 1 can understand in a way he's so insolent so arrogant, But isn't it chiefly be- caus-e you love a fight" Kis sudden laugh was sharper than natural. "No. I'm standing up to Jamison because if it was only Navigation Company along the river you could give this deseft back to the 'rattlesnakes and tarantulas."

Costs More to Run Toddy's Kitchen, But Hours Are Reduced The average American housewife today spends less than an fc«ur and a half preparing her Ikrnily's three meals, compared to the endless hours required by her grandmother to do the same job. The difference, of course, lies in today's precooked ,pr processed foods. This revolution in the American kitchen is a little more costly than grandma's way, but a pamphlet from General Foods Corp. says it pays off in added leisure — and quotes Department of Agriculture Jlfoorts to prove that this is so. For instance, a housewife using precooked or processed foods entirely pays one-third more than for the same quantity of raw foods — but she cuts her' working day by •three-fourths. If she went back to the raw foods her grandmother used the moneysaving would figure out about 45c an hour — a scale which our authority says the modern housewife rejects. ^nd here is another commentary on the cost-of-living index: The Department of Agriculture says this year's American food bill will be 64 billion dollars, about 25% of the disposable national income. This is 2 points more than the pre-World War II figure of 23%.
