HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS JM.RS. BID HENRY TELEPHONE 82T Would I could write a song that would beguile All hearts of pain mul leave a lasting smile; But smiles nre lovely, only when they grow "Twlxl pain and heartaches, planted row by row. "Cry not!" "Grieve not!" are words I never sny. Too real is anguish to be soothed that wny. I whisper only, "wait a litlle while," Some day shall grief make lovelier your smile. Some day you shall remember and be glad to count the hours of happ- ness you've had; For all the brave and gentle souls you know Have planted smiles and heartaches row by row." — E. A. G.

He produces almost, anything on a few minutes' notice, from elephants to Fin- Ifiml automobile license plates. And what he can't find, he makes. A prop man is supposed to be invincible, infallible and indefatigable. He dresses all the movie sets, and provides all the items, or properties, which arc incidental to the action in a picture, clown lo Ihc cigarels smoked by the players. In lalkictown, one always speaks of fa prop "man" because there are not now nnd never have been any prop women. True, at Samuel Goldwyn's sludio Ihcre is a feminine dresser of sets, but she is a specialisl in interior decoration and stage designing. Her name is Julie Herron. Miss Herron never is called upon to find a troupe of trained fleas, or u one-cylinder automobile in good condition, or the swords and armor for an army of Saracens. Throw It Together At Warner Brothers is a veteran boss of the property department named Wliitey Wil-son who explained that his profession is masculine partly by tradition and mostly by tho continuing need for speed. "You take a woman who's brisk and efficient aboul most things, and she'll be as fussy us any housewife about fixing up a room," he said. "The guys in a prop department usually have to decorate big, expensive sets in thc lime that an ordinary interior decorator would be squinting around making up his miiul. Usually the painters don't oven get through with u set until thc day before it's to bu u.sed for u picture.

" In kissed by bearded men, that tobacco flavored kisses are favored by German girls and that the Romans knew only three kinds of kisses. But Nyrop—and the researchers' final authority—listed only five sorts of osculations: love, affection, peace, respect and friendship. The love kiss, wrote Nyrop, should not be too long, nor too short, and it should be moist but not wet. He added that he thought it best not seen in public, which just goes to show how conditions have changed since 1702.
