If Cardui doesn't relieve your monthly discomfort, consult a physician. Don't just go on suffering and put off treatment to prevent the trouble. Besides easing certain pains, Cardui aids in building up the whole system by helping women to get more strength from their food.

Pronounced "Card-u-i." when 27 of the most vicious criminals in the Texas penitentiary system attempted to escape the Eastham farm Sunday. A guard atop the inmates' quarters picked off three of the> group as they dashed from the building and another guard slipped around the building and felled another. The others rushed back into the structure and guards quelled them quickly. The dead: Austin Avers, serving a sentence for participating in the death house escape in 1934 of the late Raymond Hamilton, Joe Palmer and others. Roy Thornton, husband of the late Bonnie Parker, notorious for her forays with Clyde Barrow, long the Southwest's' most hunted killer. Modern Chivalry His car and her car mot head on. Both drivers got ouf and, with that fine courtesy so chartic(tcristic of motorists nowadays, both began to apologize profusely. "I'm so sorry," said the woman, "it was all my fault." "Not at all, madam,' the man responded with a gallant gesture. "I was to blame myself." "But I insist the fault was mine. I was on your side of the road." "That may bo true; but, my dear madam, I am responsible for the collision. I saw you coming blocks away, and I had ample opportunity to dart down a side street." Ed Howe, Famous Editor, Dies at 84 Speaking of Divorce, "a Gentleman May Not Tell His Side" ATCMlSOft, Kart.-tfMMgar w. (Ed) Howe, 84, noted author, editor and philosopher, died in his sleep at 2:20 n. m. Sunday at his home here. Denth resulted from gradual paralysis and informities of age. He suffered a slight stroke last July 17. Prior to his illness he virtually had completed work on his book, "Final Conclusions," concerning which he said in June, 1935: :'Oive me two more years and I am going to write the greatest book in the world." Known as the "sage of Potato Hill" •Potato Hill being his name for his home—Howe was noted for his pithy, pungent paragraphs. His death followed closely that of his former wife, Mrs, Clara L. Howe, 90, whose funeral was at Falls City, Neb., Sunday. Mrs. Howe died last Wednesday at Westport, Ct. The couple was divorced more Ulan 35 years ago. Referring to the divorce in his book, 'Plane People,' Howe said; "The world has decided that a gcn- tteman may not tell his side of a con- troboTsy with a lady, and as my former wife was just that, 1 shall observe the conventions. Perhaps I will be excused from saying our friends ,gcn- erally agree that our divorce was 'a success if such a thing is possible. There were no scandals, and separation resulted in no disturbance in 'the life of either party, except to improve it." Howe's two sons were here Sunday en route to their mother's funeral. They are Eugene A. Howe, Amarillo, (Texas) editor, and James P. Howe of Walnut Creek, Calif. A daughter, Mrs. Mateel Howe Farnham of New York, was unable to be here because of illness. Howe founded the Atchinson Globe in 1877 but retired 37 years later, turning it over to his son Eugene and a group of Globe employes. To keep himself occupied he started publication of "Howe's Monthly," which attained wide circulation. In it he published his observations and philosophical advice. He called it a "journal of indignation and education." His first book, "The Story of a Country Town," was published in his own office after other publishers rejected it. Later it went through 50 editions. He was author of many other books. Ho was born May 3, 1853, near Treaty, Incl., the son of a farmer, school leacher and Methodist circuit rider. He published newspapers in Golden, Col., and Falls City, Neb., before founding the Globe. IT'S A (Racket/ ^ * ^^ ^^^ ^^^ ^B^JW /CLAUDE STUART HAMMOCK An expott of the clever tchemei that noindle the 'American people out of million* of dollan yearly^ No. 30. "Cnvent Emplor" Nell Driston and her sister, Dorothy, had a very comfortable apartment, situated midway between the school where Nell taught and the building where Dorothy worked in an office. But the situation changed when Nell was transferred to another school. "We'd better get an apartment near-GX—• — • cr your new school, Nell," said Doro- A Little Mistake! "As I was crossing the bridge the other clay," said an Irishman, "I met Pat O'Brien. 'O'Brien.' says I, 'how are you?' 'Pretty well, thank you, Brady,' says he. 'Brady!' says he, 'that's not my name.' 'Faith,' says he, 'and mine's not O'Brien.' "With that we again looked at each other, and sure enough it was nayther of us.' thy. "This way, you'll spend hnlf your time on street cars." "No, Indeed," Nell replied. "Thut would only make it farther for you. And, anyway, I think I'd better get a car." , i "That would be ideal, Nell—but cars cost a lot of money." "It all depends on what you get. I have a used car in mind, and the classified advertisements seem to offer most anything one could want. I've been reading them nil the way home, and there's one that sounds like n real bargain." Dorothy was doubtful. "You have to be pretty careful buying a used car They tinker and paint them up to look new when they really are worn out." "Oh, this is a private owner—and a minister, too. I don't think he'd do anything like that. His phone number is in the ad. Suppose I call him up and see what he has to say. . . .?" Nell telephoned and confirmed her impression that it was really' a bargain. The amount asked—which seemed surprisingly low—was required in cash. She readily made an appointment to see the car. When next day Nell called at the address given, she found the car one of' the better class, and the latest model. It had scarcely been used, and the amount asked was less than half the original price. "What a beautiful car!" Nell exclaimed. "What is wrong with it? There must be something. . .?" "There's absolutely nothing wrong with the car, Miidam," replied the owner. "I suppose you ask that question because of the low price I nm asking?" "Yes," Nell admitted. "I wondered why you would sell a practically new $1600 car for $700." "You are entitled to an explanation. You see, I am a minister, and the car was given to me by my last congregation. But the urgent need of selling is that I must have cash to go to the bedside of my son, who is critically ill. I am sacrificing the car for a quick sale In order to raise cash." Nell inspected the car. It seemed in perfect condition to her, and it was a much better car than she had hoped to get. Eventually she paid the $700 and drove away. Half an hour later, as she was nearing home, an officer ordered her to pull over to the curb. He examined her driver's license and asked to sec the car registration. "I have no registration," said Nell. "But here is the bill of sale the owner just gave me." The officer scanned the paper, then listened skeptically while Nell related all the circumstances. "I'm sorry, Miss," he finally said, "but you'll have to drive down to headquarters and talk to the inspector. That bill of sale is not for this car at all!" "Then the minister who gave it to me made a mistake!" "Young lady," said the officer, "that car was stolen three days ago!" At police headquarters Nell explained the circumstances in detail and fi- nnlly convinced the inspector in charge of her innocence of the theft. "But I'll have to ask you to wait until we send detectives out to find this 'minister'," suid the inspector. An hour later the police learned that the "minister" had disappeared and no truce of him could be found. Nell WHS then asked to look over the pictures in the "rogues' gallery." And there she found the likeness of the minister. '"You're sure that's the man?" the inspector asked, "Absolutely sure," Nell replied. The inspector chuckled. "He's n crook with a long record. His specialty is stolen enrs. We'll broadcast a general call to have him brought in." "But what about my car?" Nell asked. "I paid for it!" "The car belongs to a Dr. Spclvtn, and must be returned to him. Tile man you got it from couldn't give you title to something he didn't own, even though you did pay for it." "But my S700!—Will that be returned to me. . . .?' Tin sorry, Miss," said the in.scptct.nr. "But when you hand over money to a clever crook, there isn't a chance in a thousand of getting it back.' 148 Die in Auto Crashes on Sunday Death Totals by States as Reported During Last Week-End" By the Associated 1'ress At least MS persons were killed in automobile accidents throughout the nation over the week-end.

Qetobej iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit! Million* ibaccos? WHY THE NEW National Open Golf Champion, Ralph Guldahl (.right), prefers Camels. In his own words: "Camels are different from other cigarettes. You see, playing against an all-star field, my nerves run the gauntlet. Camels don't jangle my nerves," •'' \ P^gssas**"— CAMflS ARI THE ANSWER IS THIS URGESr-SELLING N AMERICA GIRL RODEO CHAMPION. Rose Davis (left) says; "Camels always appeal to me, but I tKink that the Camels at mealtimes are the most enjoyable of all. They help keep my digestion working smoothly in spite of the jolting I take from bucking broncos." SPEAKING OF DIGESTION and smoking, Dorothy Malone, food editor (right), says: "Many Comments from ray women leaders show that they find smoking Camels a pleasant Way to encourage good diges- J myself smoke Camels." It is homespun fact that nothing man does to tobacco can take the place of what Nature does. Camels are made of finer tobaccos into which Nature put extra goodness. "I'VE BEEN A FIRE FIGHTER for 11 years," says Frank Gilliar (left). "Smoke? You bet 1 do. And I'm particular about my brand. It's Caroelj. There's the cigarette, if you want mildness! They're the last word in flavor." "FIND THE RIGHT CIGARETTE and stick to it, is my motto," says "Duke" Krantz, veteran lairplane pilot (right). "I was thoroughly sold on Camels fight from the first pack I smoked 15 years ago." only one way to get the best tobao cos. That's to pay more for them. It has been a well-known fact for years that Camel pays millions more, year in and year out, for finer tobaccos. It's the natural way to put more enjoyment into smoking. People have confidence in the mildness and goodness of the finer tobaccos in Camels. More and more smokers turn to Camels. They find that Camels are naturally milder and that the full, natural flavor of the costlier tobaccos is brought to perfection in the Camel blend. If you are not smoking Camels, try them now. And see if you, too, don't find that Camels unfailing pleasure! "CAMELS go on my shopping list regularly," says Mrs. Richard Hemingway, New York matron. "I never want to be with- L out Camels. When I feel tired, I smoke a Camel and get the grandest'lift.'" "I'VE GOT TO have a cigarette that's mild,"says UvaKimmey, girl parachute jumper. "So I'm a Camel smoker. I find Camels so mild I can smoke as much as I wish without jangled nerves." \ THE NEW CAMEL CARAVAN Two great shows in an hour's entertainment!
