Congress • guessed it had been too .generous when it gave the privilege of allocating all the new ones to Secretary Ickes under-the 51300,000.000 public works program. Tough little Ickes wouldn't hand them out unless the thought they were economically justified. He was so hard to convince that he even refused one for his own home town in Illinois. Postoffices and promises of postof- fices-are-pretty important to a con- gressman'in re-election campaigns. Ickes, appearing before a none too friendly house appropriations subcommittee ,said if the country were going to build postoffices which the figures showed couldn't be justified from a business point of view, he j hoped the responsibility; would be taken away from FWA. Jt must have sounded like a good idea. Congress . quietly earmarked $65,900,000 of the .new public works money for postoffices to be selected from two'specific lists whose total cost would be $170,000,000. And left it to Postmaster General-Democratic National Chairman Jim Parley arid Secretary of the Treasury Morgenthau to choose-them. And maybe you think Farley and Morgenthau are going to have fun discriminating between one town "and another when the boys come holler- j ing! 2,000,000 Sounds Strong The Ickes estimate that 2,000,000 persons have been. employed through PWA, directly and indirectly, seems a shade on the optimistic side, though there is probably no way to determine the number accurately. It's often figured that 55000 spent for public works employes two men, directly and indirectly, for 12 months. Thus- far only ?570,000,000 of money has been paid out—excluding CWA funds. Do your own long division. AAA Gets a Scuttling The sad demise of the AAA amendments, which would have made AAA control measures bombproof in the courts, but which were sunk in committee by senators led by Smith of South Carolina and Byrd of Virginia, recalls some amusing inside history. Secretary Wallace and his fellow agricultural brain trusters originally worked out three groups of proposed amendments to the fairn act: 1. The absolutely essential. 2. The important, but not essential. 3. The desir- j A mother-wants to know if a child | can be too generous. much time in developing his "social two pictures (shown here) illustrate his point. On the right is n young woman who wears her hnir In tight waves—probably because it's hard lo break the habit—and pulls the dips over her cheeks and forehead, breaking an otherwise smooth and flattering profile line. To make matters worse, she puts her rouge on in two small spots on the cheeks, neglecting, to blend the edges, and smears lipstick on white skin as well as lips. She completes (he bad picture by frowning. The large picture is of the same young woman after a famous cosmetician showed her how to make up correctly and how to do her hair a new way. As you can see. her rouge is carefully blended, lipstick follows the contour of her lips and her hair is softly waved backward, allowing her lovely forehead to show. She's smiling now—and no wonder. Henry's Chapel Miss Ruby Skinner of Texarkann spent last Thursday night with Mr. and Mrs. Nolen Lewallen. Mrs. Roy Mullins and son Travis spent Saturday afternoon with Mrp. Carl Ellis. Howard Fincher of Union returned home Monday after a weeks stay with R. M.

Mr. and Mrs. Carl Ellis spent Sunday afternoon with Mr. and Mrs. Vfy- lie Fairchild of Rocky Mound. Mrs. M. B. Gentry and Mrs. Lela Gentry called on Mrs. Will Erwin a while Sunday afternoon. Mr. and Mrs. Otis Purdle and child-' ren of Rocky Mound spent Sunday with Mr. and Mrs. Earl Fincher. Tsk! Tsk! How Perfectly Dreadful! is to speak, his manner o ftreating people. He soon learns that they react very quickly to his behavior. He finds, perhaps, that he can rule best by rage or will. Or he finds that he can get what he wants more quickly by docility, sweet appeal, or giving in to others so they will love him more and therefore do more for him. Starts m the Cradle It is very vague, but these different characteristics start sometime, nnd it is agreed that it is early babyhood that sets the pattern. Heredity is still ah argument. I lay little to it. But that certain tempermental "tenden-1 cies" do come down the line, it would take a more erudite person than myself to contradict. However that may be, in a few years, it won't be the so-called "strong willed" child who is most generous, but the,child, who deliberately places his will subservient to others in order to get their liking. His "self" complex is at work just the same as that of his rougher brother. He merely uses a different method. Such a child will sometimes give up:his t4ys, % Jliis' ttirri at play, his own opinion and his very identity, in order to have others say he is nice and kind and good. He might do it even to atract unfavorable attention, for attention is meat and drink to the growing child—pleasant or unpleasant. Winning Attention If a mother suspects that ever-generosity on the part of her child is such a maneuver, she can't face him with it. or scold. He simply would not understand. It may be that she even insults him by calling him a spineless sissy or a silly dunce or whihs him, and he might in an extreme case even like it. It is at least ATTENTION. A miracle might be worked if she watches her chance and praises him in no uncertain terms for some small act of self-defense without adding a lecture. All children have a right to defense. No one expects them to be perpetual martyrs, and they shouldn't be. They will only bring down contempt on themselves if they recome supine and jelly-like. If a child gets praise sufficient to satisfy him for one act, he may try it again. In other words, do not accent his failures by scolding, but, his ventures at holding his own by : praise. Encouraging Generosity Naturally we want to encourage generosity in children—especially in the ruthless' ones. And generosity can go a good way before I'd dream of discouraging one small atom of it.

It was that list which was first modelled under attack and then scuttled completely. One of the original amendments was designed to protect the consumer more clearly than the act, which might be construed to "freeze" the present mar- / gins of the middlemen—which isn't the < AAA idea at all.

Sex No Factor in Success of Films Well-Made Pictures Succeed, Sometimes Wholesome, Sometimes S'exy HOLLYWOOD, Cnlif. ~(ff>)— Whnt tho movie-going public wants apparently is not decided by typos of pictures, but by the individunl qualities in pictures, Hollywood's profit- nnd- loss sheets of the past indicate. As filmland renct,q to a demand for "cleaning-up" of pictures, it can point lo outstanding moncy-makors amonfe films of tho typos labeled, "sex" and "crome" but it has equally impressive showings for the films of the "wholesome" type. Stars like Will Rogers, Marie Dressier uml Janet Gaynor, whose pictures nro of the "family" typo, con- tistwntly appear among box-office leaders. But Mne West, whoso films lire at eld^t spicy, is up there too. No two pictures have enjoyed to inuny. "repeat engagements" in successive years as the vastly dissimilar "It Happened One Night" and "She Done Him Wrong," starring Mac We^t. Warner Bros, found lavish musicals mid feature comedies among the extremely profitable films. Joe E. Brown whose films are intended for family consumption, ranks among tho top box-office gtnrs. "Little Women," R. K. O's most prominent contribution to ^whole- seme" pictures is piling up tremendous grosses. Paramount's box-office winner^ of recent months include Mac West's "!'- m No Angel" but along with it arc innocuous films like "Little Miss Marker" "Mama Loves Papa. "Sign of the Cross." On the other hand, "A Design for Living," a sex tringle picture has done well at the box-office. Paramount Studios announce they are considering a change in Mae Wes'.'s latest picfyjre, "It ain't No Sin." before it is released. A decision will probabily be reached Monday in New York. If such a change iy made, it was explained, the release of the film will be delayed several days. Tho word "it" in tho film title is perhaps umbigious, the studio said. Several titles have been suggested, including the idea of billing the film under Mae West's own name without a title. Tho studio said "church agitation" for clean films had nothing to do with the proposed title change us far as was known here. Because of the demand from so many theatres over the country for the film on the tentative release date, June 30, the studio crews have been working day and night preparing prints. • > •» Young giraffs bear the color markings of their parents from birth and resemble them in every detail except that the logs and neck are not so long in prorjcrtibn to (he rest : of the body. une.16,19J4 " "'"' Political Announcements fiiLJl to anriouw* The Star Is authortttd „, ..„,»,«« the following as candldateg subject to the action of the Democratic prirftWry election in August, 1934.
