AP Feature Service RIO DE JANEIRO—When four fishermen of Ceara started nn amazing jnngda voyage two months ago, they were just four poor workingmen coming to f N Brazilian capital to ask the presicont for bettor wages. Today, after having navigated their rail craft 2,000 miles through the open ocean, they are heroes, a little dazzled by it all. To Rio, which turned out en masse o welcome them, they are a Brazilian ombination of Lindbergh nnd WUey J ost after their famous nights. The four are Manoal Ohmpio Meira, 8; Jeronymo Andre de Souza, 38; laymurido Correa, 52, and Manoel >reira da Silva, 39. All are married The four brought their tiny, bounc- ng craft into Rio on schedule. Es- orted by more than 100 fishing craft and yachts they steeiecl their little raft to a dock, were hoisted, ashore y a derrick for a rousing ovation •om 10,000 spectators waiting to greet lem, and immediately asked the way o Guanabara Palace, where they knew President Getulio Vargas citild be found. Their plea to Vargas was for some sort of government control on prices offered for the fish which they catch far out in the ocean, and far a government program of aid for them and their families. Vargas promised them help. Now they are eager to start home again, over the same dangerous route. Their "jangada" craft is nothing but four crudely shaped balsa logs, about 15 feet long, lashed together to form a raf *: with a sma11 triangular sail. The "jangada" swims over the water, rather than through it. An oar thrust between two of the logs steers the raft. The ."jangada" is used for ocean fishing usually. It is impossible for the crew to sit or to lie down. On ordinary fishing trips, fishermen sometimes remain four days at sea, munching cold food | carried in sacks strapped to their waists an dsipping tepid water from a small, wooden cask. : • ,,;'V }' c V; '"?

She smiled as she thought of all that had happened since; knew it had been • for the most part pleasant; remembered Stephen's glance upon her that night in the kitchen. lived again 'the thrill of being in his arms, of being a part of his comforting gentleness, his courage, fidelity, and honor. Then his quick release of her, his apology for having overstepped the bounds of their "bargain." Diana knew that if it had not been for Adela she would have been entirely contented in Stephen's house. But Adela was a person around whom turmoil always surged. Her intrigue with Richard Thorpe distressed Diana deeply, for .she knew 'that they spent hours together. She had caught glimpses of them in many places, and knew that there was talk. "A«« , "Any time!" It was a charming place, softly 1 lighted, and with a decidedly Bohemian air of informality, scarlet and chromium bar „„„ crowded at this cocktail hour, but Phil steered Diana back to the more secluded tables. Phil, after his cocktail, ordered an enormous sandwich. "But won't it spoil your dinner?" Diana 'asked. He snorted disdainfully. "Gosh, no! Lady, you are gazing on a man who not only eats to live, but lives to eat!" "It's a wonder you're not completely surrounded by fat," she said, noting however his lean, muscular figure. "I would be, I suppose, If It were not for the religious ceremonies I undergo every morning with dumb-bells and the like." He sighed. "Some day I'm going to settle down and turn into •> nice old gentleman with a pate and a round tummy." Copyright, mi.

She turned to meet Phil Bruce's smiling face and her own lit up with pleasure. "Hello, yourself! How nice to see you!" He took her arm. "Let's go in and see what they've got. Every afternoon at this time I experience the pangs of starvation! It's the English in me, I guess. Couldn't you do with a little something?" Diana laughed. "Add long white whiskers, and you could double for Santa Glaus!" Later she said curiously, "You promised to tell me something of Evalyn Thorpe—iiow she happened to marry Richard." Phil's face sobered, took on the look of rapt adoration Evaly.n's name always called forth. "To tell you the truth, I don't know quite how it happened. We three —Evalyn, Steve, and I—grew up. together —were neighbors, you, know. Evalyn's parents still live there in Green street a few houses below the Curts. There were winter week-ends here in town from school—parties, shows, lots of tun. Summers in camp. We never thought of Evalyn's handicap. She never let us. And we agreed at an early age that one of us should marry her—take care of her always." His voice trailed off for a moment, remembering. "Then Steve and I went off to college—we only saw Evalyn during the holidays —and Richard Thorpe came to practice law in old man Durbin's office. -I guess he just swept her off her feet. We didn't like to think that Thorpe used Evalyn to insure his position in the community. We were relieved. when we saw how considerate—ho'w genuinely fond he seemed of her." Diana's fingers tightened on the slender glass before her. What would Phil and Stephen do if they knew about Adela's affair with Thorpe? * * # ' • '. CHE decided suddenly to see El- len.Curt. She had not seen b.er though she would die rather than admit it. The Dabney smiled her wintry smile was and admitted Diana into the cozy living room. Presently -Ellen came in, her small gray slippers tapping on the polished floor. She carried an ebony cane today and Diana thought her small round foce looked strained with suffering. "You're ill! I shouldn't have bothered you." "Nonsense! Sit down. My arthritis is a little troublesome today." She seated herself ort the stiff sofa. "Will you have a cup of tea with me?". "Yes—if you're going to have it anyway. I just had a cocktail with Phil Bruce." 'Humph! Cocktail!" When the tea had been brought she asked sharply, "Do you like that young man?" bald "Very much." "I'd better warn yotil He had the effrontery to tell me he intends to marry you himself when Stephen divorces you. I let him know that there was to be no divorce!" . Diana faltered, "You wouldn't want to keep us together. if—if we were unhappy." . The old lady eyed her shrewdly. "You don't look unhappy! Is Stephen unhappy?" "I—I don't know." "You don't know! What has the world come to when a wife doesn't know whether her husband is happy or not. Is there going to be a child—soon?" Diana felt her face flushing hotly. She wished she had not come here today. It was becoming harder and harder to parry the old woman's questions. "No." "And why not, madam? Are you one of these modern cowards? I thought /better of you! What kind of a marriage is this, anyway?" Diana rose and set down her tea cup. ."Please,'? she said, "I didn't come to carry tales. I only came because I wanted to see you and know if you were- well. And you mustn't worry about me and Stephen. We'll get .along all right." She stooped and kissed the old lady's rounded cheek. "I'll be late for dinner if I Uon't hurry." Outside she.breathed a sigh of relief. Without intention she had let Ellen Curt find out that all was not well with the marriage. "Well," she reflected, "she won't be so surprised when the break finally comes!"

O/ C 4 Than Liquid Gold in Sharks' West Coast Fishermen Are Cashing in By JOHN RICE NEA Service Stfat Correspondent SAN FRANCISCO-In the Pacific, the shark was once just a nuisance. Now it's a prize eagerly sought by fishermen—for shark livers contain an immense quantity of Vitamin A, which has become immensely valuable since fish oil imports were cut off by the war. FronTCanacla to Mexico, sharOislf- ing has tidal-waved into an estimated ?75,000,000 business and Pacific Coast fisheries are riding the crest. Fishermen who have been earning only a fair living, now average well over $200 a week in a frenzied hunt for certain varieties of sharks. Some, worth ?40 a ton in 1938, now bring ?1200 to $1800 a ton. Record profits were made when a four-man boat, out of San Francisco for five clays, made a $7000 catch to net J1100 for each fisherman. That's an exception, not the rule, 'or everybody on the Pacific Coast would be out catching sharks. Average for a three-man boat is $700 to $1200 a week. This fabulous boom can be traced to a San Franciscan. Tino J. Guaragnella, representative of a large drug concern. He started buying shark . liver in 1938,. using the oil to fortify poultry feed. huge livers of the common ocean and more than 1000-boats are out getting it. About 80 per cent of the fishing is (lone in deep water, 40 miles out, Baskets (large loops of line supported by floats and carrying 45 to 90 hpoks baited with sardines or sole) ore standard tackle but some fishing is done closer to shore with nets. The soupfin shark is trim and graceful, not at all vicious. Fishermen call it "a lamb among sharks." It weighs 45 to 55 pounds nlong the American castline, gets much bigger off Mexico. Besides the soupfin, the dogfish shark is the best bet for oil. Tons of these are caught annually, especially in Orettm, where there is a good market for their livers. Blue, thrasher and mud sharks are of some value.

' 3.50 TALBOT'S "Wi ©ytfir the Fqmily" shark x (10 to 25 per, cent of the en- lire weight) carry 'nearly 20 times the Vitamin A potency of other fish. 4,OQO,00:),009,000 Units Bought by U. S. Compared with cod liver oil's average of 1000 International Units of Vitamin A per. gram, and halibut's 5000 units per gram, the average 100,000-unit yield from soupin sharks really makes the oil "liquid gold." And when Guarngnejla found also that the livers were more than SI per cent oil, the boom was on. Already this year, the United States Government has purchased nearly four trillion units of Vitamin A Much of this is given to our Army ami Navy flyers; the rest is sent to England, perhaps Russia, under Lend- Lease. Vitamin A is for flyers what glasses are for near-sighted persons. It tends to faciliate night flying by preventing night blindness; it lessens eye fatigue and is claimed to increase vision. This alonp might account for the fact that demand is still four times larger than supply. But shark liver oil has countless other uses. One of the most important is in lubrication. Secret experiments are being carried on, testing its use for stratosphere engines, where ordinary lubricants are affected by the extreme and rapid temperature changes. Highly refined, it makes a topnotch oil for fine mechanisms. The British are using it to fortify margarine for national health. Many milk companies are using it to improve their products. Pharmaceutical manufacturers use it in many preparations. Vast amounts go into poultry feed to speed growth and improve egg and meat qualities. Meanwhile, top-notch research men are working constantly to find new uses for both the carcasses of tl it- shark and the residue of tin- Iivc-r. Such developments as have been mafic- arc still secret, but may be .startling.
