In every phase of life Chiang has wrought the miracle of modernization. The women have learned the secrets of chic and beauty. At top they patronize the counters of smart department stores for latest fashions. And before war darkened the city, Shanghai boasted a dazzling neon White Way.

At the age of 11, Paganini composed music so difficult that he alone could play it. So marvelous was his technique on the violin that many persons believed him to be in league with supernatural powers.

Hawkins Thrill Big Crowd Approximately 2,000 persons witnessed the automobile and airplane stunt show presented Sunday afternoon at the municipal airport, by the Dixie Daredevil Aces, featuring Captain (Harry) Harris, the Bell brothers and Lieutenant Walter L.

The show has beea invited for a return engagement in Hope, possibly the middle of October. Venus, the planet, can be seen clearly in the daylight, nt times. By WILLIS THORNTON NBA Service Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON—There is in the United States a certain publisher who sold 10,351,203 copies of his various publications during the past fiscal year, for 5813,000; He has one best seller on his list that has sold 2,130,162 copies, another that has sold 1,735,066. You'd think such a publisher would be quite a factor in the publishing field, wouldn't you? And you'd be right, too. It was the U.- S. Government Printing Office which sold the 10,000,000 copies. "Classroom Growth Reccrd," and "Infant Care" were the best sellers. Few people realize what a tremendous publishing business their government is running down here. Yet much less than 100 years ago the government's printing business was regarded as ''private business"—it was farmed out under bond to bidding pri- GOOD RELIEF of constipation by a GOOD LAXATIVE Many folks get such re freshing relief by taking Black-Draught for constipation that they prefer it to other laxatives and urge their friends to try it. Black- Draught is made of the leaves and vc.ots of plants. It does not disturb digestion but stimulates the lower bowel so that constipation is relieved. BLACK- DRAUGHT purely vegetable laxative Printing $870,100 worth of the Congressional Record for the year. (This uns up to a million some years). Printing 17,000,000 copies of various ocuments for the Agriculture Department, and 27,000,000 more for the AAA. And another 8% millions for the FHA, and 9V4 millions for the Treasury. Produce the Words, Too It would be hard to duplicate such printing and publishing establishment in this country, or in the world. The GOP also manufactures a great many of its own supplies, like printers' rollers and it produced in 1936 some 360.249 pounds of ink, furnishing hundreds of thousands of pounds of ink, paste, glue, and similar supplies to other government departments. But the government's activities in the publishing field are not confined to "nechanical reproduction of words. It is now producing the words, too. By September 1, at least 5,000,000 words, the product of the Federal Writers' Project, were on their way to publication in about 30 volumes. Within three months there will be 50 volumes, and when the whole project is carried through there will have been printed more than 250 books containing 20 million federally produced words. If all of them are on a par with "Washington: City and Capital," the guidebook to the federal city already issued, they will be of a very high standard indeed. This has already sold out a first edition of 8000 copies. Ask any publisher how many books he.

Salesroom Reveals Variety Not all these books, you understand will be actually printed by the government. Many of the local guidebooks written by WPA authors have local sponsorship, and well-known publishers have taken many of them for the actual printing. The salesroom of the GPO reveals ihe variety of the government's publishing work, ranging all the way from paper folders to elaborately bound reproductions of treasures hidden among he federal records. Thus, in the publishing field, too, the government is daily occupying a more impressive position. NEXT: The biggest banker, the biggest real estate operator, the biggest shipbuilder, the biggest— well, that's enough to show just how deeply the government is "in business.

I know what a rod- and-reel contest with these heavy fighters does to a man's energy. When I've gotten a big fellow safely landed, my next move is to light a Camel. A Camel very quickly gives me an invigorating 'lift.' " (Signed) REX BEACH, famous novelist and sportsman "Camel's rich, delicate flavor appeals to a woman's taste. I smoke nothing else. So many of the girls in our crowd feel the way I do about Camel's being extra-gentle to the throat." (Signed) JOSELYN LIBBY, private secretary "I can tell Camels are made from mighty fine tobaccos.

Camels are the largest-selling cigarette in America —and in the world —because people can and do appreciate costlier tobaccos.
