Making War Shorter—and Less Bloody I T TOOK old Nathan Bedford Forrest, tho uncouth genius o the Confederate cavalry, to sum up the essence of the scienc r of strategy in one iingrammatical line—"Get thar fust wit! the most, men." Acting on his own maxim, Forrest was a terror to fed oral generals throughout the war. And ever since then, mil- .^itary men have agreed that his terse slogan was all of the lav , and most of the prophets, as far as the art of making war if concerned. It is interesting, therefore, to see that the United States army is spending a geed deal of money to make sure that in any future war it will be able to do what General Forrest advised, * * * A FEW clays ago the army's new "streamlined" infantry division .completed important test maneuvers in Texas. "This division is a far cry from the cumbersome foot-slogging '.divisions of World War days. It has some 13,000 men, against the World war strength of 22,000. Instead of the World war' division's complement of 6700 horses and mules, it has slightly more than 1500 automobiles. To see what it could do. this motorized division pretended • that an invading army was established 300 miles away, near \- Mineral Wells, Texas. The division hopped in its trucks, got *'to the scene of "war" in one day, spent the next day in out- Maneuvering and defeating its unmotorizecl opponent, and got back to its base on the third day—having completed a stunt •utterly beyond the possibilities for any pre-gasoline age army. You may be sure that this demonstration will be prayer. 'fully studied by army authorities, both here and abroad. It '^|s a broad hint that the old attributes of fluidity and Quick -^movement may be restored to armies—things which were ^conspicuous by their absence in the World war. ND this has a meaning for civilians as well as for soldiers. For. there is a chance that motorized armies will make •:A ifuture wars a little less frightful and destructive, simply by "making them shorter and using fewer men to fight them. r _ The World war was colossally and unbelievably destructive of life and treasure largely because armies moved at a ^nail's pace. No general could hope to "git thar fust with the ^'moat men' 1 because it-jtook a weektto put his ar-my in motion, aricFbecaiise numbers of both sides were almost unlimited. Armies that depend on quick movement and mechanized hitting power rather than on slow-moving numbers should change that sort of thing. The war of attrition is the most costly and terrible of all wars, as we all have tragic reason to know. If "military science is at last finding a way to restore the lost art of strategy, the dreadful record of the World war may never be repeated. Aid For Wayward Youth S TATE'S Attorney Thomas J. Courtney of Chicago cut loose with an interesting idea recently when he suggested that the nation establish special CCC camps to restore youthful criminals to good citizenship. Mr. Courtney's point is that the CCC camps, by the discipline, good training, outdoor activity and morale-building routine which they offer, have already done a tremendous amount of good among city youngsters who might otherwise have slipped down into careers of crime. Extend the idea, he suggests, to take in delinquent youngsters, for whom now the law usually makes no provision at all except imprisonment with hardened adult criminals. It i.s his belief that the annual crime bill would be cut in half. The idea is certainly worth a good deal of study. Obviously, such camps as he suggests would have to be distinct from the ordinary CCC camps, whose enrolle are decent, law- abiding youngsters: but a special group might well be set up, to try to reclaim the lads who otherwise will be the holdup men and gangsters of tomorrow.

Paraphenyiendiaraine produces shades varying from Auburn to brown and Wack.

Furthermore, the mere fact that a person has been using thus hair dye successfully is no indication that he may not at some time suddenly develop sensitivity to it.!

There is no substance known tha will restore the original color to gray hair, regardless of what the hair may have looked like in the first place Nevertheless, women spend thousands of dollars a year on preparations supposed to have this virtue. Among the vegetable dyes used for the hair, henna is the best known, but indigo wood extracts, sage and camomile meal have also been popular. Dyes are difficult tu prepare.

Bob hastened back to the camp tents and called Honey Bee. "We will go alone," he told her. "Miss Lane it, off somewhere. If you're right, there'll be plenty of time for all of us to see it." This perhaps was a stroke of luck for Dr. Robert Wilson Barry, even though he never realized it. His first thought to take Mary Melissa with them had so hurt and infuriated the Indian girl that she might have done anything. She might have frozen up, in stolid Indian fashion, and never revealed any secret she knew about Defiance Castle, But the red maiden was so infatuated, so thoroughly smitten by the unconscious charm of her employer, that she forgave him when he couldn't find Melissa. After all, she wou^d go up with him alone! "This points, I think, is thee top of big cracks in thee buck wall," saict Honey Bee. "Back in thee rock. It has been filled up. But thee door will be there." They hastened out to look. She pointed to a sort of natural triangle, head high or more, in the strata of the cliff rock itself. Sure enough, Bob perceived, the rock within the triangle was irregular, not a part of the natural deposit. This had been a fault in the side of the mountain, a natural if small extension of the cave, and it had been filled in, probably by man. Bob began working feverishly. He had carried his short-handled miner's pick strapped to his belt, and they had left more tools up here the day before. He swung at the rock in triangle, a heavy blow with the the "I am simply, Bawb," she said He made her climb the ladders £.head of him. He held her arm frequently, showing her the gallant courtesy which any refined, white American man would show any woman. But they were courtesies whigh no one: had e vet- shown Honey Bee. Bob's manner caused her whole being to tingle. He steadied the ladders at the bottom, while she climbed up. Then he would quickly follow and hold the next ladder. She climbed nimbly. They reached the rock lip of the great cliff mouth in very few minutes. "Wow!" breathed Bob, still exr cited. "Where, Honey Bee?" She smiled and led him through a low door of the castle, through two dim rooms jato a larger room. Thh latter must have been a clan leadir's or chieftain's place. Sb_e pointed low on a wall. * * * CRAPED there was the design of two rectangles, or "long ares," with other odd markings, and, with a ipng triangle around it oil. The triangle points^ up we .id. pick point, Nothing happened. He swung at the rock again and again, eventually loosening one rock as big as his head. He removed it, but others were behind. He slaved like a mad man, sweating and panting, for nearly an hour, while Honey Bee looked on. Then all at once his pick point drove through, and black space greeted him beyond. "Ee-yow!" he shrieked. "We've got it, Honey Bee! Got something, at any rate." Half an hour later the hole was big enough for them to crawl through. He led the way and—as unconsciously as he would extend his hand for that of a littlo child —he caught Honey Bee's fingers and escorted her inside the dungeon-like place. SHe said nothing. "I'jn crazy," he suddenly announced. "In the excitement below I forgot to bring a flashlight. But I have a few matches." * * * TTE struck them, one at a time, ** surveying room as best peared at first to be a tunnel mouth. Then a v/eirc! object on a rock ledge caught his attention. "Unh-unh!" he grunted, in disappointment, inspecting the find. "Aw-aw, Honey Bee, I'm afraid this place isn't what we hoped it was. Look here." She went over to him. There before them was the prone body of a human being, in a wall niche, shrunken and apparently petrified with drouth and time, but u human body nevertheless. "Honey Bee, I'm afraid we have just opened a tomb. Think for a moment—this is on the southwest corner of the main cave. The the dark inner he could. It ap- mounlain behind here is solid, for over a mile, maybe two miles. See? It couldn't be a stairway, or exit. I might have reasoned that out myself, before corning. I get excited too easily!" He led the way back out of the darkness, and then he saw Honey Bee's face. It was a study in disappointment. Instantly Bob was contrite. He had injured her feelings, when she hud tried loyally to aid the expedition. He put his arm around her shoulders and patted her. The Indians are a sensitive people, for all their stolidity, he told himself. "I'm sorry, Honey BCD. I didn't mean to appear ungrateful. This is important as a tomb, even if it isn't an entrance. You are swell, really. You've helped more than anyone else so far. Don't think I won't remember it." * * :|t JJE moved away from her, the better to survey the walled triangle through which he had dug a hole. Heavy stones had been fitted together there with remarkable skill, with no mortar but by careful chinking and placing. It made a strong wall, and a deceptive one. Virtually all of tho ancients, Bob knew, liked to keep their mid retain impressions longer. .Moderation Urged It is not too wise to allow them, therefore, u regular diet of movies, no matter how well done or how suitable they are. Tiny children should not go at all. Small youngsters, only once in so often, to sec pictures that arc not too stirring. Growing children should not be pennitted lo fill their lives with dreams and thrills, so that workaday affairs lo.se their hold. Movies can become an orgy of escape in real earnest. Everyone needs the holidy from routine, we admit, but habit i.s always another matter, when either child or adult becomes obsessed with a world that might be, rathrr than the world that i.s. Life i.s prosy for the most part, and duty i.s just that, so most of us are given to thrill when opportunity of- fer.s. Children are not exceptions, and as it i.s in youth that unfortunate habits are set, it is wise to keep a nice balance between work and play. Movies are fine for children as long as they do not interfere with happiness in regular work and routine duty; a.s long as they are not indulged in to the extent of ipaking home and school dull things to he endured, by comparison. | The parent will have lo decide what this balance is. There is no rule lo govern the child and the movies. Dubin labored and brought forth "Plenty of Money and You." which made plenty of money for everybody. Haft's Musicals Harry Warren, short and stocky, is the one who writes the music. Before teaming with Dubin in 1932 he turned out such ditties as "I Found a Million-Dollar Baby," Cryin' for the Carolines" and "You're My Everything." Together, in Hollywood, they have done more than 90 songs, beginning with "42nd Street." "Shuffle Off to Buffalo" and "Shadow Waltz." The latter is an example, together with "Lullaby of Broadway" and "Coin' to Heaven on a Mule," of another task that movie song-writers face. They must attend story conferences, read scripts, go into huddles wild dunce directors niul help create big production numbers before they go to work on the music. Another incongruous thing about Dubin is thai he hales musicals.

In such ;i place as this clUi' dwelling, maybe they had just set aside this anteroom as a tomb. It would surely bear careful investigation. "Don't feel disappointed, Honey Bee," lie begged again. "It's very important, really. We'll come back and look into it thoroughly." He walked again lo the hole lie had cut, and leaned for a moment on the rock there, staring into the deep darkness, speculating as to the best method of procedure.

(To Be There's something tremendously satisfying about the five prize-winning novelettes chosen for publication by Little, Brown and Company from 1340 manuscripts. Lusty, searchingly frank, laying bare the whole gamut of human emotions, these stories leave you pretty hopeful fur the future of our younger novelists. First-place novelette was Wallace Stegnnr's "Remembering Laughter." Runner-up.s are William Corcorau's "Thi.s Man. Joe Murray"; "A Cargo of Parrots" by R. Heriii'kin Baptist; "Loving Memory" by James Hill, and "Night at Hogwallow" by Theodore Strauss. Mr. Stugner's story has been previously reviewed in this column. Love, from the man's standpoint, is the story of "This Man, Joe Murray." Joe was a pretty regular guy up against a pretty irregular world. He liked new places, new girls. He fell in love once—hard—but he didn't marry the girl. The second time the girl married him. You'll go a long way to explain love as well as Mr. Corcoran does. "A Cargo of Parrots" is a vastly different story, swinging you down the coast of Africa on a tramp steamer. Here the cast and the west meet dramatically. In "Loving Memory," James Hill returns to romance—after death, and to the story of u man who found in his wife's diary what she really believed of him. The final wallop comes in "Night at Hogwallow." Mr. Strauss has packed into this story all the bitterness of 3 rape case in the south.

Election Laws The Democratic Central Committee of the City of* Hope, Arkansas, has been requested to stress certain) parts of the election law to the judges and clerks who are> to hold the Democratic City Primary on November 30,1 19U7. All of the state election laws and instructions apply] to this city election just the same as if it were a countywide or state-wide election; but there seems to be some, misunderstanding about the qualifications of voters and other matters, and so the Democratic Central Committee of the City of Hope mentions the following matter, to-wit: 1. The City election to be held in Hope on November :?(). 1037, is a regular primary election, and all the election ]j laws and rules governing the primary election apply to this election. 2. Before any person is eligible to vote in this elcc- tion, the judges and clerks must (V either find his name on the printed list of qualified persons holding 1936 pollj tax; or (2), if his name is not on the said list, then he must I exhibit to the judges and clerks at the election a 15)36 poll \ tax receipt, showing the same to have been paid on ori| before June 15, 1937. A person holding u poll tax receipt paid after June 15, 1937, is not eligible to vote in this election. So the first thing the judges and clerks .should do when any person, male or female, offers to vote is to see if such person is listed in the book of qualified electors provided for the judges and clerks at the election. If such person is not listed, then the poll tax must be demanded and shown, or affidavit of maiden voter must be made. To constitute a maiden voter, the person seeking to vote must prove that such person has become twenty-one years of age since April 10, 1936, regardless of sex, the age i.s twenty-oiu' years for maiden voters. Any person not listed in the list of qualified voters for the ward in which such person seeks to vote must produce poll tax receipt or prove to be a maiden voter, and in ad-, dition must prove that such person has resided in I ho Stale for one year, in the county for six months, uiul in tho ward for thirty days immediately preceding the election. The law imposes the duty on the judges and clerks at the election to see that only legal and qualified votes are cast. No person can vote at the election who does not uppeai 1 in person at the election box and actually cast the vote. Tlu; law prohibits the soliciting of ballots or the handing out of cards or otherwise being present within threo hundred feet of the polls for the purpose of influencing voters. Tho polls open ut 8 A. M- and close at 6:30 P. M. No box will be opened until the jiolls close at 6:30; and under no circumstances will the judges and clerks start the counting of ballots in any way until the polls are closed at 6:30"P. M.
