Cure of Coras Won't Last Unless Shoes of Proper Fit Are Obtained This is. the 2Cth of a series of article, in which Dr. Morris Flshbein "discusses discuses of the skin. (No. 367) "When the skin on any portion of the tody is repeatedly rubbed, it responds by thickening. The thickened area is called a callus. On the toes it is a , corn. Usually corns and caiiuses appear on the feet more often than on any other portion of Ihe body. They are found, however, on the hands of mechanics, golfers, and others who subject the hands to repeated rubbing. Calluses will also be found on the knees of scrub-women and frequently on the shoulders of porters. In most instances calluses or corns en the feet are associatd with badly fitting shoes. They are found at the * '^-points at which the shoes are most ji likely to nib the foot—namely, on the , ends of the toss, on the upper sides of the joints (particularly in people * whose shoes are too short), and ' be, • tween the toes when the shoes are too •narrow. A corn or callus will become painful just as soon as it involves a nerve ending. There are so many remedies for corns and calluses that almost every- cne tries his own corn cure. The or- din:rry commercial corn cure is a mixture of salicylic acid with some other substances which will hold the salicylic acid in solution or suspension so tlia it can act over a long period of tim on the thickened skin. The salicyli acid will soften the skin so that it wil come away. Many people year after year cu away the tops of corns or calluses, bu. they immediately recur because the causative mechanism has not been controlled. A specialist in disturbances of th_ feet will usually change the shoes or acply pads, braces or wedges so that the pressure will be taken off the spot at which the corn or the callus appears. Removal of this pressure will usually result in a disappearance of the corn at that point. Soft corns between the toes, most frequently between the fourth and fifth toes, are often associated with an infection by the ringworm fungus. The use of short and.narrow pointed shoes pushes the little toe backward and produces friction between the joints of the first bone of the fourth toe and the head of the first bone of the fifth je. It is possible to remove soft corns between these two toes by applying 'arious treatments which, however, nay be painful because the tissues lere are so tender. Sometimes a sin- le treatment with radium or the X-ray will bring about permanent relief. NEXT: Cold sores. Bobcats Run Over (Continued from Page One) "Hope received, brought the ball up to their own 45 where Ramsey punted. On the play the Russellville safety man fumbled and Bright recovered for •Hopa on the Russellville 45. Masters shot a pass to Reese who was brought down on the 20. Masters and Eason took it to the 12-yard line where Rus- scllville held and took possession. After Russellville failed to gain, Salmon punted to his own 35 where the Bobcats started a march for twchdown. Masters went off tackle for three and then little Davey Coleman, a new star in the Bobcat baek- field. picked up seven for a first down. Eason and Masters plunged to the 15 as the quarter ended. Masters pasEid lo Ramsey for a first down that left the ball on the five-yard line where Bright swept around end for Hope's first touchdown. W. Parsons attempt to kick goal was wide. The Crimson Cyclone team received and returned to the 25. Reese charged through to throw Batson for a 10-yard loss. S'limon then punted to Bright \vhtv took the ball in midfield and ran to the 30. Eason rifled a 10-yard pass to Reeze. On the next play, Eason passed to Ramsey who was downed on the 10. Euson made five through the line and thc-n Masters cracked center f<;r touchdown. Parsons kicked goal. Stone In Hero Role Ruisellville received and returned to the :>,Q. Two passes failed and Salmon droor.ed back to punt. Big Freeman Stone, 205-pound all-state tackle, charged through like a mountain locomotive, blocked the punt, recovered it, and ran for touchdown. The fans gave rurn an ovation. Parsons converted and the Bobcnis were out in the lead 20 to 3. Rus.sellville took the next kickoff and returned to the 30. A pass from ] Salmon to Keeton was executed and the Ru«-fllville star got loose in an open field, but was brought down by .Cok-rnaii on the Hope 25. Ramsey re- Ojvf»-r.,i ,. fumble for Hope to stave off a threatened score. Ramsey punted to Salmon who brought it back to the 2;i. Salmon and Keeton plunged to the u-.'';-jard line- where a Russellville fumbled the ball. It rolled 'fiiTr,-.-; (he goal line where a Hope play- u f'.-ll on it for a touchback. ^ Int. i,ali was brought out on Hopu's tf>. Masters and Eason made a first diA'.-n. Bright went off tackle for 10 am! ihc-n Eason threw a pass to Reese for 15 yards as the half ended. Stone In Backfield A." the second half started, Stone \vunt to the backfield and W. Parsons went to the line. The Bobcats re- tt-jved. returned to the 30, and ther. marched 70 yards on a sustained drive for touchdown. Stone tore off yard after yard through the line. With the b;ll resting on the two-yard line after Stone ar.ri Masters had marched up the fifi'l. Stone went off tackle and across iho goal line. Parsons' kick -was wide. After the next kickoff an exchange of punts left the ball on Itussellville's 30. Ket-ton got av/ay on a long run to place the ball on Hope's 40. Salmon two pk,ys later get loose on an end run- and touchdown. Hope's Ftoai Score Early in the fourth quarter Fullback Eaion intercepted a pass an ran to the Russellville 12-y^rd line. Leonard Bearden swept off end for 10 yards. Two line plays failed and tlren a reverse, Bearden to Bright was good for touchdown. A line play for extra point failed. Both teams took the ball up and down the field but neither was able to score. Both teams showed wild offense power, the Bobcats marked up 22 first dov/ns and the Russellville team 12. Hope showed its best aerial game of the season. With Eason and Masters- doing most of the tossing, the Bobcat ends, Reese and Ramsey hung on to seven of 14 passes. Ree-e In Old Form With the exception of being blockec on two plays, Hugh Reese played bang-up game, both on the offense and defense. An injury forced him t retire in the second half. Probably the best show of the night was put on by Hope's big tackle, Freeman Stone On the defense he went through the line time after time. On the offense he lugged that pigskin for many a yard. Like Reese, an injury forcec lum from the game in the last half. Masters continued to show up brilliantly when given a chance to carry the ball. Masters probably turned in the best defensive work of the night He went down on punts to bring down the Russellville safety man and ran from his own side to the other side of the field to tackle ball carriers on .sweeping end runs. Eason played a good game in the fullback role and fired several passes that found their mark. The prize find was little Davey Coleman, 145-pound halfback, who first broke into the lineup at Blytheville last week. You'll be hearing more about little Davey. He has three more years ahead of him. The return of Bright to the lineup gave the Bobcats power and confidence. Bright has been on the injured list two weeks. Although still slightly handicapped he played brilliantly. The entire Bobcat team played well. The old-time fight and spirit was there. For Russellville, J. Keeton at full- hack, and Salmon at quarter, wei-e •he big guns. Both showed plenty of power on their drives. The Russell- /ille team resorted to the air quite frequently, tossing a total of 18 passes, completed four and had three intercepted. The Bobcats tossed 14, seven complete, and had one intercepted. The Bobcats lost 45 yards on three penalties. Russellville lost 25 yards on three penalties. The Bobcats meet Goodland, Okla., Indian Ac-ademy on the Hope field next Friday night, and then take on St. Joseph High School of Dallas Thanksgiving Day at Hope. The St. Joseph team has an im- ;ressive record this season. This Sun- lay, St. Joseph battles St. Thomas Tigh School at Houstoji, Texas. Both <re leaders of their district. 1938 Elections and (Continued from Page One) Sntlll ,, Novcmbe) . finst CHRISTIAN cfitmcH V. A.

I.iltl'r the Illume is urouned hut Jill it ubHvul, CHAPTER XXII in that moment of aban- J ~ j donment to grief, Jack had agreed with Howell that the authorities must be summoned. It was now past 8. The family physician was in the study and with him a group of men from police headquarters. A sense of tragedy and loss hung over the house, which only a few hours before had resounded to mirth and gaiety, A step away from the room where men talked in muted tones, Jack sat with his mother and brother. His arm encircled Mrs. Wentworth comfortingly. His othef arm reached out until his hand touched the shoulder of his stepbrother lightly, compassionately. Jack's face was drawn with suffering. He wanted to believe, as his stepmother said, that his j father had died from a heart attack. But there was the position of the body on the rug, head up, with an open wound on his head. If his father had fallen and struck the andirons, he would hiive been lying face downward. Unless someone had moved him. And if someone had been with his father, who was that person? The inspector had learned that the heavy paperweight his father had used was missing. Why? "Mr. Wentworth." Inspector Waldrop was standing in the door. "We've reached our sions," the inspector said. "We agree with Dr. Lockwood that your father died of heart failure as a result of shock." Jack felt his mother stiffen against him and Barry's shoulder relax a little under his hand. "But, we believe," the inspector continued, "that shock was the result of being struck suddenly by some heavy object—" * * * TTE broke off, his eyes sweeping ** the trio. "It will be necessary to question the staff, of sei vynts, and talk with members of tlie family also. You are the only members of the family?" "We three and my sister." "{ should, like to talk with your sister," Inspector Waldrop said. "Routine. But necessary. You understand." "Miss Dexter, please awaken my sister," Jack spoke briefly. He became aware that Miss Dexter's usually expressionless countenance was working with emotion, and that her eyes were fixed on his strangely. He seemed to read in her queer gaze a struggle to communicate something. When she made no move to leave, Jack began again: "Miss Dexter—" And then as something clicked in his brain, "wait, I'll go for Jill. I believe it would be best for me to break it to her." "Do you mean the girl doesn't know her own father—" Inspector Waldrop stopped in sheer astonishment. "We thought it was kinder to wait," Jack answered sternly. As he walked away, Miss Dexter got to her feet and pattered after him. Jack whirled. "Then you were trying to tell me something." "Oh yes, Mr. Jack. You see, Miss Jill isn't in her room." "You're sure." "Yes. Everything is in a whirl. She's gone." He went back to the sunroom. "The secretary has just informed me that my sister went out euny. Probably to some breakfast or other . . ." He realized his words were falling strangely, uncertainly. He saw amazement in his mother's eyes, a queer glint in Barry's and stark unbelief in Inspector Wai- drop's, * TILL absent! J mean? Why had she gone? Why of all mornings in the world should Jill have left the house when any unusual act would be regarded with suspicion. And this was not merely unusual. It was something so bewildering that even he—Jill's brother—could find no explanation for it. Though, of course, there was one. He felt Inspector Waldrop's e^ss on him. "Where's the telephone!" the inspector asked abruptly. Jack silently led the way from the room. Inspector Waldrop said gravely: "I might as well be honest with you, Mr. Wentworth. I tried to spare your mother the shock. We're certain this is an inside job. Take that marble paperweight we found, by mere accident, shoved in between some magazines." "I think you're all crazy," Jack muttered hoarsely. "What do you make out of that?" "TWe man who cleans your father's study is positive that U was there yesterday morning, folding down some papers," In- * * What could it spector Waldrop replied slowly. Jack did not reply. "I understand the servants come on about 6:30. Is that correct?" "Generally. Sometimes later, after a party that had kept them all here very late." "I see. We've questioned the head gardener, who apparently, is deaf, dumb and blind to everything. But the second gardener, Willis, and his wife gave some information. They were both awake at six o'clock—the time Miss Dexter and Mrs. Wentworth heard the sound of a fall, and also the time Mr. Wentworth's watch stopped. It was broken by the fall. Willis and his wife say the two German police dogs wouldn't have allowed a stranger to enter the grounds without an infernal racket, Is that right?" » * i TACK answered slowly: "Yes, " they're good watch dogs." "Furthermore, there was someone with your father during the evening who smoked a cigaret, There are cigaret ashes on the smoking stand by a chair that is close to your father's desk. Closo enough for tho parson in a fit of anger to have reached out and found the marble paperweight handy. Now, Mr. M o n t a n n e docy.n't smoke cigarcts. Neither does your father. We've learned they were in conference together." "I'm afraid all that is mighty flimsy evidence that dad was struck down, inspector." "Maybe. But finally the servant who made his rounds after the ball found Mr. Wentworth alone in his study. He went about setting thing* ,Vi order, and he swears there were no ashes in the tray on the stand. I understand that you, your brother, and your sister do smoke cigarets." "Barry and I—"Jack began and hesitated. "Your sister does not smoke?" "Jill doesn't smoke generally. I've seen her take a cigaret on occasions. Very ruix-ly. She doesn't like them." But under nervous excite^ menl—" "We must question your sister," Waldrop resumed. "We must know she reason why she left home before it was good daylight on a cold, snowy morning without a word to a member of her family." He turned to the telephone. Jack stood like stone while the inspector spoke professionally into the receiver: "Call all cars with instruction to pick up Jill Wentworth, who is driving a custom- Washington Mr. iind Mrs. Charles Prince tmd Mr. mid Mrs. Rufus Prince of De- Queen visited M.

There was a London publisher willing to issue the book. There was in England and elsewhere a sympathetic audience •eady to buy it. But when he had completed it, he was doomed to dis- ippointment. The manuscript was sent back to him. Inexperienced in the art of book-making, Haile Helassje larl spent too much time narrating far distant events and had given all too iltle space to the tragic war with taly—the inside story, as only lie could reveal it.
