Shaker Furniture Is in Style Again Simplicity Adopted by Moderns Who Like Old Furniture By MARY DAVIS GILLIES Prepared by McCall's Magazine. One would think thnl the furniture of n religious sect that flourished n century ago would be about the last thing for modern decoration. Well, it is the last—and Inlcsl. Shaker furnilure, made lo harmonize with a creed that foreswore frivolity and ornament, has been rediscovered and welcomed by sophisticated designers and manufacturers for its beautiful and sincere simnlicit.v. Shaker pine chests and work tables are inspiring the newest murnilurc mode— lovely warm finish and careful construction with old wooden dowel pins. The lines of the new pieces slill arc simple, but they are not just reproductions. Many of the new pieces are based on old ones which had entirely different purposes; a round coffee table comes from the pegged overlaps of a Shaker cheese box. Some new pieces are combinations of several old designs. For instance, a chest of drawers has the lines of an old Shaker closet with metal mounts like those on an old Shaker stove. Complete settings of Shaker .style furniture are being made. Decorations are combining thcm with modern and provincial wallpapers, fabrics and accessories—and deep pine baseboard or horiconUil paneling at chair- rtiil height for a proper background. Perhaps you are in the stage of going modern—perhaps you cannot quite tear yourself away from the old friends in furniture. You will find the new Shaker style will let you go both ways.

It says there's big money in cartooning. But you hnve lo pny for materials and instruction." "Then do they get you n position?" "No, not exactly," said George. "The ad says they buy your work as soon as it is acceptable. That would mcnn 1 could do the work at home." "How much does it cost to start?" "Tlio outfit and instructions all together nre $25." "Well, clear, you always did like to draw—and you make boiler cartoons now Iban lols of them I've seen in the papers. Maybe it would be worth trying. Even if you only sold enough to gel your money back, il would give you something to do." "Yes." .said George, "that all sounds easy enough, but how about the ?25. That's a lot of money." "I know it is, but we can make it, some way. This might be just the chance you need. If il is, Ihe money will be well spent." It was indeed « great deal of mopey for George and Jnne but by carefully economizing they finally were able to pay for the course. In due lime the 'outfit' and instructions came and George went to work with enthusiasm. "I haven't been >so happy since my accident." snid George, after he bad been working for about n week. "I feel thnt 1 have n new leiisc on life. Today, I'm to send off my first cartoons!" "I'm so glnd, dear, and I know you'll succeed. Those drawings look perfect, to mo." George laughed. "Oh. I wouldn't call them pcrfecl, by a long shot. But I think I'll mnko the grade all right. It's my only chnnce and I mean to make the most of iu" Thai day, nnd each week thereafter, George sent his drawings for criticism. At first the letters he received in reply wore very encouraging, not to say flattering. .But later, they became more critical. Work was returned iignin and ngain to be redrawn. Finally George received a Icltcr notifying-.-Ijiiri •that he-had, taken, tlip full course, although his work was not yet accepfi]bfe> "*•' •'cySET, yet acceptable. The letter also stnted: thnt for $20. Additional, the instruction would be continued long enough to give his work the necessary 'professional appearance' lo make it salable. "We simply can't pay more now," :aid line. "I'm awfully sorry, too. But there is .something I would like to do, dear, if you don't mind." "Of course I won't mind Jane—what is it?" "Well, dear, there's a man who draws cartoons for one of the local papers. I'd like to take your drawings nnd show them to him. Maybe he could .suggest something." George agreed, and the next day June had a talk with the local artist. Shu told him of the course George had taken and the request for additional money, and showed him the drawings. The nrtisl inspected the work carefully. Then be said: "I don't wanl to burl your feelings, but I'll give you my honest opinion, since you asked il. You've been gypped! That phony ioiir.se your husband has taken wouldn't help anybody. They're just after your money." "Hut—do you think George has a chance to be n cartoonist?" asked Juno. "I'm sorry, but I don't, judging from those drawings. They fail lo show any of the spirit of cartooning. 1 think be is wasting bis time nnd money." VOLUME 39—NUMBER 33 , ARKANSAS, SATURDAY.

It can be done with a little practice. Edmond Schunk, chef at Vincent Astor's St. Kegis hotel in New York, fur instance, has a very neat system. But be recommends a couple of preliminary flourishes. Place the bird on the table broadside to the guests, he says, so they can gel an appetizing preview. Here's How Voij Do It Then you pivot the bird a quarter- turn so that its neck faces you and proceed thus: Take one drumstick in your left hand. Holding the carving knife in your right hand cut the cord that holds the drumsticks. Outline the leg with the tip of the knife, loosening and severing the leg and second joint all in one piece. Lift the drumstick and separate this section from the carcass. Cut drumstick and second joint apart at the juint. Do (he same by the other drumstick. Dislodge the wings—if they haven't already been taken off and cut up with the neck and giblets for use in the stuffing of gravy. Then, beginning at the base of the Hope Rolls Up 20 Points on Power Plays in Opening Quarter Before a small crowd of shivering fans, the Hope High School football team defeated Blevins High School here Friday night, 33 to 0, to win its eighth grid contest of the season.

Two completed passes gave the visitors two consecutive first downs thai put the ball on Hope's 18. A plunge through the lino advanced il to the 15 where the Bobcats held for downs.

These arc real-": life talcs, but (lie names of persons and places arc fictitious and if the name of any actual person is printed here it is a coincidence. By DICK McCANN NBA Service Slaff Writer Tom Dolan wept and felt no shame. Old Mrs. Callahan had been good to him. She had taken the place of a mother he had never known, never seen. And now she was dead and Tom felt awfuly alone in the crowded little funeral parlor. "Pardon me, son . . ." Tom felt a tap on his shoulder and turned away from the coffin. A well- dressed, distinguished looking man was standing at his elbow. "Pardon me, son," the man was saying, "but I know that you'll be needing help. Take,tJuX.and any time you need a^ythffig^o^J^e.^-- Thc ' stranger sWfetJ' an envelope into Tom's hand and pushed away through the mourners and out to the street . . . Tom was glad the funeral was over. But he wasn't glad to be home. It wasn't home any more with Mrs. Callahan gone. He wasn't the only one who was going to miss poor old Mamie. She surely had a lot of friends. Dozens of people came to the funeral parlor ... ' The funeral parlor! Tom suddenly remembered the stranger ... I know you'll be needing help . . . call me ... the envelope. Where was it? Oh, yes, here it is. Tom had rammed it into his pocket without opening it. He ripped it open now and found $50 in bills and a calling card: J. Leo Farreli, Attorney-at- Law. Scribbled on the card was the notation: "Don't forget to call on me for anything you want at 235 Orpheum Building." Tiight away, Tom knew what he wanted from Mr. J. I,co Farreli, At- lorney-at-Liiw. He wanted 'to know who was Mr. Farreli. and why was ho willing to give him money, and more and more of it. . . Tantalizing Munificence "I can't tell you, son," said Mr. Far- reli, kindly but determidely. "Just you take these monthly checks for $200 and go to college. Just write me now and then and tell me how you're doing." "But, Mr. Farreli, you've got to tell mo why you're doing this." Tom was frantic with wonder. "Maybe you know my mother? My father? Who were they? Or maybe," and Tom had a .sudden suspicion, "maybe you are my father!" "No, son," said Attorney Farreli, "I'm nut your father. Other than that I can't answer any of your questions. Just you take this money and go to college." Tom did. But the problem was too much for a youth of 20 who was alone. He worried, fretted, couldn't study . . . who is my mother . . . who is J. Leo Farreli . . . who is giving me this money . . . who was Mrs. Callahan . . . who is my father . . . who am I? "Bridging" the Years "Tell me! Honest, I'll go crazy." Pale, shaking, Tom Dolan stood before Daniel Eisenberg of the Skip Tracers Co. and begged for help in iiis hunt for his true home and family. Mr. Eisenberg had never had a case precisely like this one before. The money couldn't be traced and Attorney Farreli, protected by the cloak which the courts fling over the men before the bar, wouldn't talk. There was no precedent, no established procedure to follow, no clues. But, yes, there were clues. Two of them. And Skip Tracer Eisenberg snatched at them eagerly. Tom knew his birthday—Oct. 31, 1907—and recalled, hazily, that when he was about three years old, Mrs. Callahan had taken him to an Eastern city which had "bridge" in its name. And so the search was on ... The postal guide was culled for names of cities, towns, villages, hamlets from Maine to Maryland containing the syllable "bridge." Then to each such city, town, village, G ". .. who Is my mother . •. who is my father .». who am 1? ... Tell me/ Honest, I'll go crazy!"

A, Rooksbery Asserts It Is Proof Against Political Touch (Continued on Page Two) LITTLE ROCK—Any fear that the Arkansas Unemployment fund may become subject to political manipulation is scouted by State Director W. A. Rooksbery, of the Unemployment Compensation Division, in a statement made Saturday in answer to inquiries from a few employers, who were fearful that the fund might grow so large as to offer such temptation. "There is absolutely no chance that the unemployment compensation fund will ever be used for any purpose other than that for which it is being collected," said Rooksbery. "The law itself makes that impossible. It provides that every penny collected by the State Division shall bo placed in the United States Treasury to the credit lot the Arkansas Unemployment Compensation Fund and cannot be used for any purpose except the payment of benefits to eligible Arkansas workers. "It was necessary, of course, to accumulate a surplus fund to meet unpredictable emergencies in ouler lu insure the permanency of the program.
