By Olive Roberts Barton Law Is Sure Cure For Young Pests Big Splash Always Ends in Tiny, Fading Ripple A LL stories are longer than they look. ""We seldom hear the complete story of -anything-, be'" cause every story is like a stone plung-ed into a lake, sending Cripples out across the expanse of time. And before they have tftiedWay, we lose sight of them in the distance. ^ Thus a tiny ripple passes across today's news, all part of v ''a stOry that made a very big splash 35 years ago. * * * ICHARD CHOKER to a whole generation of Americans ras a symbol. No child was too young, no man too old have heard of Richard Croker, in whose pugnacious per- ft was concentrated for a time all the hatred that an Caroused public opinion could pile up against municipal graft jfjSnd. corruption. For 16 years Richard Croken was the un- «<Jhallenged boss of New York's Tammany Hall. Chauncey !pL Depew said of him that "He was a king and New York | was his kingdom," •',• Croker was the last of the colorful Tammany bosses. ^inheritor of the soiled mantle of Tweed. Driven both from "his post at last and even from the city of New York, he died Tabroad. And of what he left behind at his death, what remains } ' today? The Tammany organization is badly on the run in /[New York City, and its grip on the town is nothing like it -'was ..in Croker's day. Politically he left behind only a malodorous memory of corruption, machine rule, and de- -ttiagoguery, tainted with faint overtones of the vice racket. -,\ -But Croker left behind a great fortune, the extent of ? wm'ch was never exactly determined. Admitting that "I was Corking for my own pocket all the time," he did amass a great deal of money. And what happened to that? Long and bitter .legal squabbles distributed much of it among lawyers. And today his widow, JBula E. Croker, is broke, facing eviction from the magnificent palace Croker built in West Palm JBeach, Fla. "The Wigwam," it was called, recalling its Tammany Origins, and for years though it was gradually falling to film, Mrs. Croker was able to hold on to it. Now Mrs. Croker awaits eviction, her last resources dissipated, she says, in lawyers', fees, taxes, and court costs. .£" ' ' . .''•"*' '* * ••THE last little ripple passes almost noiselessly along, and Ji *a!T that Croker did, all that he got, is vanished. It is usual to note, when some cheap little crook is rubbed out, that "crime does not pay." Yet even for Richard Croker and his family, his career can have brought little satisfaction. • Croker died in exile, much hated and despised. Even the property he amassed failed to protect his widow. Of his long and colorful career, nothing, not even a ripple, now remains. Guaranteed War >XTO person ever caught smallpox by staying away from an IN infected house. It's the one who goes near, if only to tack a "quarantined" sign on the doorpost, who runs a chance of taking the disease. As long at the United States stays completely away from war, isolated half-way around the world, there is little chance of being involved. But any move, however worthy, •carries a threat of ultimate, dire results. "We can't be neutral and write sassy letters," fiery ex- sMarine Maj.-Gen. Smedley Butler declared in speaking of the Far Eastern situation, warning that similar steps led to America's entrance into the World war. If a "quarantined" sign must be tacked on Japan's doorpost, let someone else do it. The United States caught the disease 20 years ago. The lesson should be fresh enough ,to remind the nation to protect the next generation. Mfff MR « The Fa mi t, M. R«B. U. 8. Pat. Off. By DE.

Ptingworm of Beard Is Hard to Cure Unless Given Immediate Treatment This is the siyth of a series of articles in which Or. Morris Fishbein discusses skin diseases. (No. 356) j * Everybody now knows something • fibout athlete's foot, which is a form' 'of ringworm infection of the skin, particularly between the toes, but which | fnay also attack other portions of the! body as well. j Just as the ordinary infection of the hair follicles of the beard is known as barber's itch or sycosis vulgaris, ringworm of the beard is called tinea bar- bae OF ringworm of the beard. This condition chiefly affects men because women do not have hair on the /ace in most cases. The ringworm type is not likely to affect the upper lip. Usvially there are more or less extensive patches in which the hair follicles are swollen and red and some- Junes the development of blisters Wrhich are filled with pus. If the person concerned does not shave regularly crusts accumulate among the hairs and imprison the inspected material under the crusts. Be' cause the hair follicles have been fiil- with thi3 infectious material, thr ; hairs may be easily pulled out. Thf $kin btween the hair follicles become.' thickpngd and swollen, sometimes itching end forming scales. This form of infection of the bearded are* U rather rare in the United St«te». It occur? chiefly among farmer* «n4 cattlemen and may affect others who work around animals. The treatment of this condition is exceedingly difficult. Sometimes it is necessary to pull out the hairs from the infected areas. Sometimes X-ray is applied in order to cause the hair to fall out so that the antiseptic substances necessary to destroy the organisms may be applied. Various antiseptics are used for this purpose. Since, however, all of them are strong, they should not be used except under the direction of a doe- tor who understands just how much of the antiseptic to combine with the lotion or ointment that is applied to the skin. if there is rinkworrn elsewhere on the body and if there is any condition affecting the scalp, that must be most seriously considered at the same time that the ringworm is treated on the face. If not, the condition once cured on the face may be lighted up again by the carrying over of materials from other portions of the body. NEXT: Chapping cf the skin. SOV-ANVM "Worry," exclaimed Mrs. Smith to her husband. "I worry too much, do I, about Tommy? Well, this time it's not his. manners or his vitamins, it's his cheeck that a stone cut open. It something is not clone about that Mills bey I'll go crazy." "What do you want me to do?" said John. "Maybe it's time we did do something alxjut it." "I wish you'd park yourself some place where you can sec what I see day after day. Our Tommy fretting here because he's lonely, and then when I can't stand it any longer, going out to join the crowd. The Mills boy begins by pushing him. Then he spits at him, and then lie draws off and starts throwing stones. He heckles the others too, but they don't seem to mind. They haul off and hit him. and throw stones back, being pretty tough themselves in their way. But Tommy has been taught to be gentle and he's a little -younger, to. He doesn't come | in bawling. I'll say that for him. But! he can't understand why this byi> isj so meaen." i "'ialk to his mother?" Mother Defends Boy "She wouldn't believe it. He is the apple of her eye. She is always bragging about what a good boy he is. Maybe he is at home, but he's pure poison on the street." "Why don't you get up a committee and call on her? Surely Hal's mother, and Mrs. Doaks and Jenny Plant would bear you out. Or take it up with the P. T. A." "I tried, John, but they always put the responsibility on the mother, and she won't take it in this case. The insists that her boy is provoked or he provoked or he would not stand up for himself. Stand up for himself, humph. If anyone so much as pointed | a finger at this kid, he'd lie about it; and sny that he'd been shot. I tell you j I am helpless, we all are; but our Tommy is in the worst fix because he's the littlest." "We'll move in the spring." "That's just lovely. Six more months of this, and I'll have a nice cell in the asylum. It has to be stopped, I tell you. and it's up to you." John thought awhile. "I'm too busy to stick around here anil watch a lot of kids kill each other." he said. "But I'll do something to put the fear ofj God in that youngster. I suppose he's too far gone on his path of crime to reach him in any other way. Have the boys tried to make a friend of him?" Appeal to the Law "Well, after two years of this, yes. We mothers have talked it over and) tried everything. The stone throwing is a new angle." Next day the children were playing. I The Mills boy approached with a hand-! ful of gravel and threw it into Tommy's eyes. A policeman stepped from a store where he har been watching. "Hey there, you." he called. "Let me see you throw anything again and I'll take you along." The Mills boy ran. There was no more, trouble. The impersonal law had decreed. It WHS John's way, and it did what the mothers could not do. The moral is that once a child has gotten, beyond fair play, others will not stand for it. How much better if parents would substitute themselves for the policeman and see that their children play the game according to rule. scenarists. Pete Smith, Who started Oreta Garbo on her lonely path, to fnmc when he was publicity chief for Metro, now is n commentator, writer and producer of shorts. Norman Krnsna, who cut :i wiiic swath through the plncidity of Warner's blurb department until Dnrryl Znntick fired him. now is a writer-producer of million-ilollm- flick- el's at M-G-M. Knisnn's news-mnking enthusiasm knew few bounds. Once lie had to be almost forcibly res trained from calling attention to gangster picture by spraying the leading man's home with machine gun bullets. A coup which he did engineer successfully was the invention of the Cultural Arts Guild of America. Krnsna rented a handsome silver trophy from a pawn shop, hired un extra with a professional heard, and \vvcte a speech. Before a battery of newsreel cameras the extra, introduced as a "Doctor," delivered the speech and presented the cup (temporarily) to Lorcltn Young for "the greatest cultural and artistic advancement accompanied by uny outstanding individual during the year." Betty Keeps Cup Equally ingenious and almost as successful was the exploitation arranged for Betty Grable only a couple of weeks ago. -This stunt involved a fictitious organization known as the Committee for the Improvement of American Standards of Betiuty. which was about to select a ''"Miss Ideal America." There was only one candidate—MLss Grable. The cup, intended for ceremonial presentation only, was borrowed from the Paramount prop department. The ClASB "officials" included, besides a couple of studio artist-em- ployes, the secretary of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, an art critic fliid a sculptor. Some of these dignified gentlamen were too bewildered to offer any protest, or else were too dazzled by Miss Grable's baby blue a Day Sy Bruce Cattdn I'rl/o Novclelcc is Stnrk tfcve Story/ If you lean nt all toward the novelette, you ought to mark for your "must" list Wallace Stegner's stark story "Remembering Laughter" (Little, Brown, $1.25). Mr, Stegnar hns just won with this novelette the $25000 prize contest staged by the Boston publishers, Little, Brown, and proved that, a great deal can be done with the shorter fiction form. The book takes you to Iowa's broad acres in the early 1900s. It moves around the three protagonists Alec, lusty, laughing farmer, Margaret McLood, his Calvinist wife, and Elspcth, Margaret's impulsive young sister. Margaret invariably frowned on the impetuosity of Alec, endeavored to curb his exuberance. As the- days .slipped by resentment moved in on love in Alec's heart. And then came Elspeth. The same vital force that was Alec's pulsed in Elspth's veins. And it proved too much for both of them. In the end Margaret found her sister with Alec and vowed eternal Calvinist pun- i ishment. Eighteen sunless years followed that i day: 18 years in which Alec and MHI-- 1 farel and Elspeth, and Elspeth's child lived together in the same house, yet scarcely noticed each oilier. For Mnr- ftiiret there could be no compromise between sin and God. I And then Alec died one day and the I child went away. But escape had j come too late for the sisters. They I bathing suit. Everything went off a scheduled. I'm told, except that the actress refused to return the cup to the property department. found reunion but the years had scarred too deeply ever to permit real hip- piness again. Notably well written is this book of Mr. Stegner's, rising to superb cli- mnx. Yet one cannot lay it down but with some regret that the author so closely paralleled Edith Whnrton's classic. "Ethan Frome." Mr. Stegner shows great promise and he might have done as well striking an entirely different pattern.—P.O.F, This Is the End LAFAYETTE—Purdue is claiming the biggest end In football.

Unsung, Unrewarded Toilers Are Hollywood Blurb Scribes HOLLYWOOD.—Unless it be dog catching, or maybe tax collecting, there is no vocation so thankless and endless as that of pressagentry. The stars almost never are satisfied with the things said about them in print, and whatever the source of a story, a player is inclined to hold his publicity man responsible. The latter also is expected to function occasion- illy as a sub-press agent. An actor who spends a night in jail, in company with a lot of pink elephants, is likely ,o emerge next day unrepentent and :urious that news of the indignity has not been kept out of the papers. When legitimate news is dull, the praise specialist is expected to. think up an "angle" which some of the 350 accredited correspondents will believe and perhaps write. Occasionally the publicity boys go too far. 'Marlene Dietrich was irate when her studio blurb factory began telling how she was just a little homebody who oved to cook. The fact is that she can cook, but she knows that culinary skill will not sell any tickets to her pictures. Miss Dietrich wants to be known as a glamor-girl. Boris Karloff fired a press agent who planted a story that while in London he telephoned Hollywood every evening to listen to his dogs bark. And over at Warners a publicity lad has been dodging Pat O'Brien ever since a story was issued declaring that O'Brien, tiring of a bag potato pattern on his chst, had the skin peeled off and made into a lampshade. When Silence Paid The only press agent who ever became nationally famous is Dexter Fellows, romancer-in-chief for The Greatest Show on Earth. The only prfes agent who ever became rich was the late Ivy Lee, whose specialty was withholding news about the Rockefellers. In Hollywood, all publicity workers seem to live only for the chance to leave their jobs for positions as produc tion assistants or writers. The methodical ones become producers; the more highly imaginative ones become Tc ifiy 's Pa/Mem \ BY CAROL DAY OAMPUS honors go to dresses like this one with sash-tie and slim front panel, button- trimmed.
