The Banks of the river were lined with the innumerable little- boats called sampans, which are part of every Chinese-waterfront. And what did the Royal Welsh Pusileers do but snow the Chinese how to mass these sampans together: across the stream, tying them together with cables, so- as to- block the path of the launches? That done, they led then* to cpnstroci a similar barricade farther down the stfeaW so that the Japanese launches were neatly trapped. ••.*** N OR is that all. The brass hats felt the same sort of soldierly admiration 7 for the dauntless Chinese. A British brigadier general an'd an American brigadier general joined in sending a telegram to Chiang Kai-shek himself, begging- him to 'order 1 the heroic soldiers to- withdraw and save their lives.

So says William R. White, New York state superintendent of banks, in an address before Biwfcnell College students. This, of course, is' simply another way of phrasing the old saying that "there's always room at the top"; and the old saying is just as true now as it always was. The really superior person can always make a place for himself. ••' Bttt only a few of us, unfortunately, are really superior persons; It is the opening for the average person that we're interested in; and unless there is some assurance that an ordinarily intelligent and skillful youth can have an ordinarily good chanee of finding a job for himself when he starts ofrt, youn#collegians—and other youngsters as well—may eye th<> f ntirr* with misgiving. CHAPTER fT was one 3! those things thn: couldn't happen. But it had Patty ..old herself. She was staring at the front page of a news paper. Night before last, while she was spending the week-end with relatives in ;he country, Jil) Wentworth's millionaire father had died. Or rather, the paper today announced he had died from a heart ;itt;ick after he had been struck by some unknown person. Police, the story ran, had found Jill ' "driving aimlessly about" early yesterday morning, and she had given "no satisfactory explanation of her strange conduct." They were holding her. with otfiur members of. the family, for investigation. The worst of it, the paper declared, was that Jill wouldn't talk. Patty Hung the pa',er aside. No time to be reading newspaper accounts, when Jill was ,-it her home battling police and thtir absurc suspicions. * * * A SUBDUED-LOOKING doorman let her into the big mansion. Patty crossed the entrance hall and mounted the broad stairs with contemptuous disregard of the official groups about. Jill's maid opened the door of Jill's room, answering Patty's knock. Mrs. Wentworth had given instruction that Miss Jill was not to be disturbed, she said. But Jill's voice rang out: "Patty, Potty! Come in." "Jill, darling," Patty cried, when the door had closed behind the departing rnaid^ "I'm so distressed about your father. I was in the country, and didn't know. Nobody ever reads the paper at Aunt Bar- oara's." She put her arms around Jill, who clung to her, helplessly. : 'They thinl: I did it—" came Jill's whisper. "Yes, they do, 3 atty.

During Education Week many schools nre having open house. Thi.. is a splendid idea, but once is not enough. Most of our most progressive schools today recognize the value of close home-und-schol c-operation, if for nothing else thanto combat the cleavage in the child's mind and heart. It reaches the poorly-adjusted child who takes unkindly to school, but it also has an encouraging effect on the others. Teacher and mother should be friends.

Nowadays when you see an tictor wearing u faraway, dreamy look while speaking lines, he's probably reading the dialog from a "gobbo board." A few players, notably John Barrymore, -sometimes are unable to remember their speeches, so these are written in large letters on an off-stage blackboard. There's such a thing as being too tidy in the movies. When an actor appears on a set wearing highly polished shoes a property man will dust them with powder. That's to kilt the reflection of lights on tin- polished surfaces. Most of the burbling fountains you seo in the backgrounds of movie sets are all glass-enclosed. The .streams of water run through tubes so that there's no splasing to spoil the sound track. Subdued splashing later is dubbed on th film between speeches.

Creomulsion Is a medicinal' combination designed to aid nature in soothing and healing infected mucous membranes by allaying irritation and inflammation and by aiding in loosening and expelling the germ-laden phlegm.

He assocates her with his er and parent. He may be inclined to regard his teacher as an enemy, because she is not personal, but puts him into a big machine with all the other little pigs and grinds him up as school sausage. He resents the fact that she does things differently from his mother. Defies her because she doesn't say, "That's too hard for you, dear, so let it go." Dislikes her because she wears her riair and clothes differently from his mother, isn't her boy, because she is a stranger and would be there anyway whether he were in her room or not. She is. in short a process rather mother. They are friends. his His moth- :hiin a person, and he isn't wther pleasing her. joing to There is u way to win Johnny and n ea.sy one. He will go on forever, drawing a line t>e;ween Home and ichool, between home responsibilities und school responsibility, if things are allowed to go on. But there is a prin- 'iple of behavior that applies to this situation quite simf-ty. When the recalcitrant one persists in his open indifference, or defiance, he will be reached by proximity or association. « Home Approval Helps In plainer lingo, when mother "tnd er approves of this outsider and likes her. She passes on the magic wand of authority to her proxy, the teacher, and Johnny is seeing Miss Barnes, or Miss Stewart, with new eyes. In Parent Teacher meetings, he knows they know each other. But unless he sees it, it is like the governor of North Carolina meeting the governor of South Carolina. It is out of his ken. Beyond his world. He needs to see Miss Barnes lending mother a hair pin, or mother passing her the cake. They don't need to mention him at all, but once in a while he should see them laughing and talking about the last movie, or fussing as women will, about the price of eggs. Teachers are busy people, and of course parents can't be popping in on map-drawing or decimal-finding to visit over the fence, but ingenuity will find a way.
