The number of enrollees will fall below 200,000 for the first time—although new enrollments will quickly bring it far above that figure. The history of this corps, when it is finally written, will "be one of the most interesting and revealing of all commentaries on our attempt to end the depression. It gave some hundreds of thousands of young men the break they had been looking for—jobs, incomes, the feeling that the country could, after all, use their services; it got an enormous amount of useful work done, and it put our woodland and soil resources in better sha,pe than they had been in for decades. Altogether, the CCC has been a useful institution, and the fact that it is beginning to shrink simply mirrors the fact that the emergency which called it into being is no longer so pressing. T. M.

One investigator proved that cancers could be caused to form on the skin of the rat by nibbing vigorously into the skin preparations of tar, soot, lubricating oils or various chemicals. Various types of cancer associated with uritation have been discovered. Sometimes a cancer appears where a sharp tooth or ill-fitting set of dental plates continuously rubbed the cheek or tongue. Cancer is frequently seen on the lip where a hot pipe stem regularly irritate* the skin. Cancers also have been seen on the lips of people who smoke cigarets which stick to the hp and are roughly pulled off. The average person thirjjts of a cancer as a horrible spre or 9 tremendous growth. That is because cancer is too frequently neglected tigtil U has readied 3 serious staffs, fe tfc« earliest is 9 lining of some internal organ. This earliest stage of cancer can be prevented, as far as we know, only through preventing the irritating factor that gives it a start. Cancer of the lip and tongue, as has been mentioned, are most common among men. However, smoking among women has grown, so much in the last 25 years that there is likely to be a change in this regard. Women first began smoking in considerable numbers around. 1919. At that time we used in the United States around 10 billion cigarets per year. Now we use about 145 billion cigarets each year. Cancer of the mouth is found mos frequently among men who use tobacco to excess, who neglect their teeth and who wear badly fitted rough dental accessories. It is believed that thorough cleanliness of the mouth and teeth, cor rection cf all dental defects and the avoidance of such irritations as havi been mentioned will help to lower the incidence of cancer of the mouth.

Her name is Inez Sanpietro, but she's on the Paramount payroll as Isa Miranda. If you have been to Italy lately you'll know that Isa Miranda is that country's greatest screen star. Or was. 1 can't imagine why Mussolini ever allowed her to leave. Surely he doesn't thing we're going to send him Shirley Temple. Anyway Signorina Miranda is here, along with her plump manager and her plump poodle. None of the three understands more than a very little English. The poodle —named Chlcq, although it looks like Harpo—speaks with the least accent . The actress reminds you of an animate and amiable Marlene Dietrich. She has nice eyes and golden hair and the sort of lean, mobile face that photographs like a million dollars (or 20,000,000 lira, at the current rate of exchange). Her figure is slim, perhaps too slim. Apparently she has been told that Hollywood people.subsist soley on lettxice and fan mail, because she still is dieting rigorously and speaks wistfully of her skill at cooking spaghetti. Her manager bristles at the mere mention of spaghetti, and growls something which you know is a warning that she musn't touch any. Hard Climb to Fume 'I was the first Hollywood correspondent to interview Miss Miranda, and a couple of years from now I may bo looking back with astonishment on the experience. She was friendly and gracious and very eager to please, and was impatient only with herseif because she did not speak better the Englees. Frequently we'd look up words in an English-Italian dictionary to make ourselves understood. ' If training and background have anything to do with it, the star will not. soon go high-hat in Hollywood. She,has had a tough time of it. Her father was a street car conductor in Milan. She had to go to work at 10, as errand girl for a dressmaker. The job paid one lira (5c) a day. Later she worked in a box factory and a handbag factory. At 15 she was a model. • Modeling was better. She saved eno.ugh to go to night school and learn typing and bookkeeping. In 1932, as head typist in the office of a publishing company, she saved enough to at- 'tend the Academy of Dramatic Art, Heir work there won her an acting contract, but at miserable pay. 'Meanwhile she had sent some of her photographs to film companies. She began to get extra parts at 54 lira a day, and soon won the leading role in Lady in restaurant: "Why don't you shoo your flies?" Proprietor:, "Well, you see it's hot today, so I thought I would let them CAST OP CHARACTERS PRISCII.I.A PIERCE — heroine, youiisv woman attorney. AMY KERR—Cllly's roommate anil murderer's victim.

"aim action* arouse Cilly'« suspicion*. CHAPTEH XI 'R. CROWELL was unusUally solicitous when Cilly explained the tragic affair to him. 'Don't worry about the office, Miss Pierce," he ordered, gently. "I'm sorry about the Harvey case, because I particularly wanted you to handle it. But this is a terrible situation. Don't try to come in for the balance of the week. And il you feel in need of any legal backing, remember that we'll stand behind you. Don't let the police frighten you." Leaving his office, Cilly fell stronger than she had in the past 12 hours. With the backing of a law firm as capable and as respected as Crowell and Burns, she lost some of that first dread she hart of the circumstantial evidence which was closing in around Jim 'Telephone, Miss Pierce," the ope rator called, as Cilly passed the switchboard. "Who is it, Betty?" "Mr. Hutchins." "All right. Put him on." In her own office, she took the phone. Harry's voice, louc and strident, came over the wire "I've been trying to get you a1 home, Pnscilla," he said. "I'm just abosff broken up by the news Can I help in any way—with the funeral, perhips?" "Thank you, Harry," Cilly replied quietly. "There's really nothing more to be done. Funera. services will be tomorrow at ' ... at the Greenwood Funera Home in Flatbush." "I'll be there, of course. In thi meantime, there are some thing I'd like to talk, over with you Will you have dinner with me to night?" Cilly didn't feel equal to dining with Harry Hutchins. "I'd rather not go out to dinne tonight," she told him. "But I'l be home about 5, if you care t drop in for a few minutes." "Fine. I'll be out shortly afte S." * * * C ILLY was home only a fev minutes when Harry Hutchin arrived. He had obviously stoppe at the florist's, for he carried a enormous bouquet—a gay colorful "I just stopped to see about a vreath," he said by way of ex- lanation, "and I thought I might ust as well bring these along to ou. They'll cheer the place up a it." Cilly thanked him.' She appre- iated his thoughtfulness, never- heless she resented his flowers. No matter how fine Harry Hutchins ried to be, she thought, she would ot like him. "Had a nice visit from the po- 1 ice this afternoon," Harry offered. He settled himself in a comfort- ble chair and took out a cigaret. Watching him, Cilly was forced o ndknire him, in spite of herself. *e was undeniably handsome, his eatures were even and perfect, as f they had bt-en molded to some pecial order. His face lacked the ugged charm, the wrinkled riendliness of Jim's, but it was attractive, nevertheless. With exaggerated nonchalance he lit the cigaret and blew out the match. "You know that fellow Dolan's all wet," he said. A smile of faintly amused- boredom hovered on his lips. "I told him so, too." "Did you really?" * * * tJE did not catch the irony in Cilly's words. "I certainly did," he admitted, self-approving- y. "Turning an affair like this nto a deep, baffling mystery so they can get a few weeks' newspaper publicity while they're trying to solve it ... it's ridiculous." "Doesn't it seem rather mysterious to you why anyone should want to murder Amy?" Harry waved his cigaret deprecatingly. ; Amy wasn't murdered. It was an obvious suicide. Amy was the perfect type — melancholy, despondent ..." "That's absurd!" Cilly flared. Amy Kerr was as happy and intelligent a girl as I ever knew!" Harry shrugged. "That's the impression she gave you, no doubt. But a man can always get to know a girl better than even her closest friend. Amy wasn't happy, I know. Some love affair, perhaps. She often told me about some man . . ." 'Amy wasn't fool enough to kill herself over any man!" Cilly corrected him with decision. "I'm sorry, Priscilla. Heaven knows I don't mean to speak lightly of Amy Kerr. She was too fine a girl . . . too splendid . . ." His voice trailed off, and he smiled with worldly tolerance before he spoke again. "Of course, you know, there was nothing serious between us ... absolutely noth- "I understood your relationship perfectly," Cilly said icily. "Of course Amy was not serious. She had other interests ... a great many other interests . . ." Harry leaned forward in his chair. "That's exactly what I've been trying to^ay, Priscilla. There was — someone else. Someone who hurt her a great deal." did not want to believe him. She did not want to pay attention to any remarks from Harry Hutchins. Nevertheless, here had been something .in Amy's past. Something sericrus and threatening. She couldn't deny that. Perhaps Amy had con- ided in Harry Hutchins to a cer- ;airi extent . . , ' "I think it would be a good idea," he, was saying, "if you went over her personal things — her etters, or keepsakes, for example. et rid of anything — well, any- ;hing out of the past. You know iow the police pounce upon such things, and what the newspapers do with them. Amy was too fine to be made ridiculous after she's gone." Suddenly Cilly understood Harry's solicitous interest. It wasn't Amy's past that he was concerned about — he probably knew no more about that than Cilly did — it was his own future that troubled him. "The police have already done that," she stated maliciously, de.- liberately overpainting the picture. Sergeant Dolan's brief examination of Amy's personal effects had not been very thorough. She wanted to annoy Harry Hutchins. Apparently she succeeded. He sat up attentively. "Have they found anything?" he asked with unfeigned concern. Cilly only shrugged. Let him worry, she thought. He probably wrote some warm letters to Amy before he met Gloria Harmon, and now he's afraid they'll find their way into the newspapers, for the glamorous Gloria to read and misinterpret. That would be just too bad: his promising future might be threatened. Nevertheless, Cilly determined to go through Amy's belongings more thoroughly that evening. If there was, as Harry Hutchins intimated, something in the past, the fact would not be cheap fodder for the tabloids— not if S ne could help it. The first thing she did, however, after Harry Hutchins left, was to throw his garish bouquet down the incinerator. <To Be Contiauedl Isa Miranda Mussolini's unofficial ambassador extraordinary to the United States is Jsn Miranda, above, who is In Hollywood to provide American fans with (he kind of film fare (lint made her (he toast of (he continent. a' picture called "Darkness." But it was a very poor little picture, and it sent Miss Miranda back to a stenographic job in a law office. "About that time, in 1934, a nationwide search was begun for a perfect type of modern Italian beauty to appear in "Everybody's Wife." There were 1000 applicants. Ira Miranda won the part. No Night Clubber "Everybody's Wife" was a fine picture,'with fine direction. The actress zocmsd to prominence. All Italy talked pf her.

The result is a peculiar state of affairs, for we have the muscles trying to reach the ends cf the long bones and stretching too tight to do it. Result, nervous tension.

In fact, I wonder if nture does not administer in her mysterious way some kind of soporofic to these weedy lads, to stiil any hurt that may result from her own mistakes, such as making bones grow fast and then remembering that muscles have to catch up? The lad in such a fix has too much to contend with. He is handicapped with a body that irks him. He is expected to be mature and sensible and to do hard jobs, when all the time he is just the same little Harry or Bill who was playing marbles or flying a kite a few months ago. He is torn with inner conflict, and at the same time so sensitive that he is suspicious of everybody. He wants to play with the kids but at the same time is ashamed, and pretends to a common ground with older fellows. He wants to sleep, and sleep and sleep osme more. He eats enough for three. He is not obliging because he finds escape, in general, the easiest "out." Needs Happy Home Life In short, he wants cnly two things, not three.
