Rebuild War Targets for Next Conflict *1PHE great cathedral of Rheims, France, destroyed by Ger- 1 maai shells during the World war and rebuilt largely •'through American interests, has been re-constructed. In magnificent ceremonies, the French Cardinal Suhard rededicated its famous altar, before which the kings of France have knelt to receive their crowns. Blessing its ancient walls, ..'still bearing the scars of war. he returned the cathedral's sacred relics, .absent for 23 years- As age-old chants re-echoed in its medieval, vaulted arches it.seemed that here was the triumph of good over evil. -.., * * * T HE World war era is passing: its scars rapidly are being erased. Few of the younger generation can remember the terror of the conflict. There remains, of course, the army of jjbrokea men, living spectacles of conflict's havoc, but most of '""these are segregated in hospitals or other government institutions, real "prisoners of war" awaiting inevitable but delayed ^release from a stagnant, useless life. To those who escaped unscathed, years have turned battles into a memory of gay adventure. Huge, imposing memorials, dedicated within the past year, mark the battlefields where thousands died. * * * EMORIALS to lasting peace," they were called as national leaders dedicated them. But does the world need 'to'be reminded of peace? More .effective in curbing growing battle spirit would be memorials to war. The gaunt spectacle of a shell-torn Rheims .cathedral is more impressive as a deterrent to war than the "handsomely restored edifice. The spectacle of thousands of crippled American soldiers 'parading along Fifth Avenue would have far greater effect than the marching of gay American Legionnaires. Let there be, war memorials but let them reflect reality—stark monuments to hate.and.death. Dogs For Sale a \I7ITH wars, crime, debts and taxes the old world seems a "VY pretty gloomy place until something like the Fredericks?, Va., dog auction comes along to restore faith in' man. .^. The custom of selling at public auction dogs of all values ^r»dJ5reeds,voriginated in colonial Jdays and has continued.to 2^pr"jesent time.'"Many were the tears as owners parted with TMoyjed pets for a few much-needed dollars. "^'"J^ut best .news was the'reaction of purchasers. Almost ^without exception they not only returned the pets but allowed Jtfe&;bw;ners,.to.;keep the money.:from the.,sale- From a New •York bnoker came an offer by wire, to buy and return the ,"coon dog" of a lonely hill farmer who parted with his pal for •$6 he "just had to have." This is good news. When the inherent generosity of people refuses to be submerged in a maelstrom of international and domestic difficulties, there is little cause for worry about the future. Help Wanted ENGINEER wishes organize large sbaff competent -men to work dn big$ project. Op- portuniby for advancement, H.H. By Olive Roberts Barton Hallowe'en Haunts America Too Long Wo used to hnve Hallowe'en one night u yenr. Now we hnve II nil month. The minute the smell of burning, leaves cuts the air, it does same- thing to spirits, niul out (jour the youngsters,from every house in town. Every corner has its Bangs, every shadow its whispers, every gnrbnge cnn has a futnlislie look, nwniting its doom. Now lot USD get nivny (rom words mid down to (he business of the meeting. I move that there is too much Hallowe'en. Who seconds the motion? Remarks? Here they are. Since the war, I think that is about the right date, America ha stnken its holidays in too-big bites. Easter used to be Easier, and the Fourth used to be the Fourth. Christmas is another story. But today we begin every holidsi.v n full month ahead. The stores nre full of gadgets for the oncoming celebration a full month or six weeks before time. There is no real relish for any occasion when children have been stuffing on Easter oggs for a month, or lighting sparkles for weeks. By such tactics we are taking the edge off enjoyment. However, these are innocent enough things, as far as people are concerned. They do not annoy us or make it a hazard to leave the porch swing outside. They cloy, but do not disturb us at our evening paper. They are not nuisances that make us hate October, the loveliest month of the year. The good burgher docs not cnre if he is selected on Corn night, or Hnllo- we'en night, as n target for fun. He remembers his own boyhood, when the postern gale wns left on its hinges nt your own peril. Me will permit his doors to be tied from without, mid still not swear too loudly. He'll stand for lots of things. But when it comes to his whole month being ruined, he gets mnd. And he has a perfect right to be mnd, Keep your children in nt night. Of course. John Burgher must keep his boy in, too. Maybe he won't mind his doorbell ringing once while he is playing a tough robber, but ten times is just loo much. And Mrs. Burgher is perfectly jutified In reporting to the police when she finds rubbish on her porch day after day for weeks, when she goes out at dawn for her milk bottles. If the children simply cannot contain themselves, and must be doing something these frosty nights when witches ride, let them dress up at home mid pull taffy. Hnve the crowd in, but keep them off the street. Two nights are enough, von one. Then punks and high jinks are in order and we accept (lie hazard. But impress this on their minds. It is as unlawful to work real destruction on Hallowe'en as at any other time. And. oh. for the first of November!

D. HENBY "Frankenstein" Hobby Turns a Screen Scribe Into Publisher The opening of a boil is a serious surgical operation. Not everyone' is competent to do this. The idea that anyone who can see blood without 'ainting is competent to clo minor sur- ;ery has long since been exploded by he deaths of people who have been eriously infected generally through areless handling of small infections. If a boil is opened improperly, the nfectious material may spread to other larts of the skin and may even be fore••d through the wall that separates it rom the rest of the body in which ase the Infection ma yspread through he system and cause death. In some instances X-ray and ultra- iolet rays have been applied when )oils are long persistent. This, how- ever, is a procedure which only a competent physician should attempt. The use of yeast for boils is certainly of no established merit. Vaccines or preparations of the killed germs taken from the boil sometimes seem to help in building up resistance. A carbuncle is actually a group of boils and is simply more serious because it represents a more extensive infection. When carbuncles occur in aged people or in those who are recovering from illness, they are naturally much more serious than when they occur in the young. Nowadays the X-ray is frequently used in the treatment of carbuncles. In serious cases the attention of an expert surgeon is required.

Strike Aftermath I T IS now more than three months since the "little steel" strike.of 1937 was broken, and more than four months since it began. - - Most people have forgotten it. But there are some 3500 families who have not forgotten. ; They are the families of the men, still technically "on Strike," who have not gone back to work, and who may never 'go tack. Their places have been filled, production is going forward. In Cleveland a public meeting has been called to try to relieve their destitution. Youngstown, Pittsburgh, Canton and other cities face a similar problem, for C. I. 0. "strike benefits" have dwindled to less than $20 a week. The problem can not be lightly dismissed by saying "They quit their jobs. Let them starve." For these are American workmen, and they exercised an American right to strike for a principle they believed just. Public relief will probably have to carry them eventually- Which is just one more reason why a better way must be found than violent strikes to settle labor relations problems. These men and their families, left like driftwood in the wake of industrial strife, are evidence of our failure to solve a problem that must be solved. octor T. K. O. 8. Pat. Ott. By OK.

Boils, Carbuncles May Cause a Serious Illness Unless Given Proper Treatment Jhis Is the tenth cf a series of articles in which Or. Mi.rris Fish- beia discusses diseases of the skin. (No. 360J A boil is also an infection of th<; skin. It usually follows a breaking of the skin such as occurs wh'.-n the back of the neck is constantly rubbed by a collar which has not been laundered smoothly. Boils occur particularly on thote parts at the skin that are covered by hair follicles since the hair follicles offer increased opportunity for irritation and for the entrance of germs beneath the surface of the skin. In some diseases, suchr as cfebetc: the skin of the person seems to react j unduly to infection and boils occur, with greater frequency in dJabt-tts. j It is generally belived that repeated j infections of the skin such as pimples and boils result from a geneally lowered resistance of the body to disease.! Such a Ipvgrinjf may come with in- j creased fatigue and with bad diet, constipation, insuffiifcttt sleep or fresh air, and a general defiiency in all of the health habits that are assoicated with good hygiene. Persons who have boils frequently should try to keep the body in the best physial state by establishing good hialth habits. All infections of the ears, teeth, throat, nose or other portions of the body should be attended to since frequently the germs coming from these portions of the body may loc&lize elsewhere and set up secondary infetions. A boil i.-, actually a deep-seated inflammation of the skin. Usually the germs cau-sirig the boils are the pus- forrnir.g gtrrns which are ever ready to attack when the resistance of the skin is broken down by any continued irritation or other disturbances. There art- innumerable methods for treating boiis. Heat is frequently applied because it brings a good supply of blood. The blood aids in destroying germs. The blood also brings to the area where the boil is located the necessary white blood cells which wall off the boil from the rest of the bod}.

CHAPTER XII "T HOPE I'm not intruding. Per- x haps you are busy," Ardath began, humbly enough. She had long ago realized that humility is a becoming role for a ^•oman dealing with a proud and spirited man. "I remembered the lovely pictures, and I wanted to see them in a nicer place." "No," Alan heard himself saying, to his own amazement, in a courteous tone that held none of his previous irritation. "I was painting, but it is nothing that can.not wait." "Oh, please! I'd love to see a picture in the making. Couldn't I?" Alan was amazed at her interest. He had not expected artistic enthusiasm from this girl. He hrjl not expected anything. He had scarcely been aware of her Uiose other times. A tempestuous nature lurked behind the calm, almost expressionless face, he felt sure. She might be none too sharp intellectually, but she was emotionally, Alan realized. * * * JJE would like to put her on canvas. Paint her as a woman who was emotionally asleep, with a slow, sluggish smile on her wide, mobile mouth. A smile that just touched her sleepy eyes. And then paint her again as a woman awakened, with a fierce, possessive light in her eyes, her lips Curved for a caress. Alan had forgotten his prejudice against having a woman, or any stranger, invade his private sanctum, and had led the way back to the stud.o. He raised the shade high in the windowed recess, so that the rich tints of his picture might be repealed to his visitor. Hi? looked at his portrait; the regEil head of a young Russian aristocrat, as he remembered her. /"I like it," Ardath said. ' Alan warmed to the simple statement. Sbe was ignorant, he l:jnew. Very ignorant about cul- lAjral things. But she mytie no pretense of knowledge, for which he admired her. "I don't suppose," Ardath spoke Abruptly, "that you would cave to Jfaint me?" . He did want to paint her. But he was unprepared for her direcl question. Paradoxically, he didn't want to paint her. He had a feeling that perhaps contact with this sultry young person might no! be especially good for him. At least not especially rewarding artistically. * * * TT was all very well to visualize her on two canvases. But putting her there—especially in the mood his imagination had evoked, with her full lips parted to reveal gleaming teeth—might be more difficult. Rather than be an inspiration, she might play havoc with it. "I don't know," Alan temporized. "Have you ever posed for pictures?" "I'm a model for clothes," Ardath replied. "I pose every day for somebody. I shouldn't think it would be so very different." "Very different," Alan said. "Posing for clothes doesn't require any mental effort, But when an artist demands a mood—" "What kind of mood?" Ardath questioned, her eyes on his. Alan colored. Never mind that. If this girl thought she could force him into confidences, she was mistaken. His thoughts were his own. There had never boon a woman yet he would care to share them with. Yes, there had been one. A beautiful clear-eyed girl, whose clear eyes had masked deceit. The most dreadful of all deceits. A conspiracy to topple his pride and professional integrity. A conspiracy to make a soft fool of him. The thought of Jill, bringing with it again the pain of broken romance and disillusionment, made him feel more tolerant of this girl with her purposes so honestly exposed. Yes, she would probably prove an apt model. He didn't like her. He distrusted her. But he might paint her. "I think," drawled Ardath, who had watched indecision playing over his face, and read It wisely, "that I'll leave my address and telephone number. After all, you might need a model, some day. Who knows?" * * * A FTER she had gone he looked •^* at the small card. Ardath Holm. The name seemed to suit. The address, he told himself, meant nothing to him. It was just as well to tear it up, this small card that was a tangible temptation of some kind. But instead, Alan crossed to a desk and dropped the card into a drawer which held some receipts and more unpaid bills. The next day Alan saw Jill's picture, aa he carelessly turned, By GKOVEK JONES HOLLYWOOD.—Printing isn't just a hobby with mo. I had to take up an avocation to keep from gomt! nut-s.

Anyway, she conceived the idea of getting me something to occupy my mind. Printing appealed to her because I had once been a sign painter niul .shi> knew 1 was vastly interested in lettering. So she bought a "snapper" press, several cases of type, nnd fixed me up a small print shop in n corner room of the house. The stuff was fascinating. Night after night I'd sit at the type case and set up advertisements for imaginary grocery and department stores. As 1 began to learn more about the art of printing. 1 realized that my choice of type was limited, .so the old print .shop started to expand. Hubliy Bi'coint'S Hu.sincNS Eventually, I built a shop of my own in the back yard and installed a brand-new type-setting machine. This was immediately followed by a small,, highspeed press. My type cases grew in number until I had practically every modern type face in existence. Instead of playing around pulling proof on ads of imaginary merchants 1 got- out a monthly magazine for a club, of which I was a member.

The date was »omc time away, but the event was heralded as one of major importance In the winter calendar. The brilliant ball wns one Mrs. Wentworth had had in mind a ' long while. She wanted it to eclipse any social aflaii- Jill had , ever been given and to rank with the elaborate parties of, the season. It would be, Jill thought, with « new cynicism, exactly like a boV label: "Look what the debutante: I of this season have to offer. And then look at what marringe with the daughter of John Wentworth offers. Not to be ignored even it her debut is two seasons cold." * * * TTER mother was desperately J eager for her to marry. Well, i in this respect she was not so very ' different from most of the other < mothers, Jill thought. All of them were anxious to weep nt claugh- ! tors' weddings, and give the bride- j groom a grateful peck on the cheek /%r taking them away. Well, at least, she would compromise regarding the ball, and be jjaradecl once more. And then came an electric, daring thought. She would send nn invitation to Alan. Putty would learn his address. From Ardulli Holm, if necessary. I Jill felt almost lighthcarltxi ;:s j she played v.'ilh the hanpy idea.

Just the same, Jill resolved, I'll sound father out. All her romancing of the moment before seemed childish and absurd now.
