JffQE FOUR Von Papen Meets Failure In Turkey Nazi Trouble Shooter Un able To Swing Turkey To Germany's Side By NEA Service Germany's ace trouble shooter Baron Franz von Papen. apparent!} has failed in his special mission to swing Turkey away from France anc England—and failure is a rare word to this 59-year-old son of a wealthj West-phalian family. Time and again, he has hande< important assignments for the fatherland. Frenquently, he has been in trouble himself. Usually, he has triumphed. The United States learned about hiir early in his career when, as a graduate of the German army, he was serving as military attach in Washington. It was just before America's entry in to the World War. There had been a series of fires and explosions in American munition plants, aboard ships carrying supplies to the Allies. Suspicion fell on Germany's military representatives — among whom was von Papen. Germany recalled him on demand. In May 1932, President von Hindenburg appointed him chancellor. The Nazi movement was surging; von Papen had little enthusiasm for it. But he cancelled his predecessor's abolition of the storm troopers, gained an audience for Hitler with von Hindenburg—and later got Hitler appointed chancellor under the belief that he could control him. Some said von Popen's direct part- when the baron became vice chancellor under the new regime. They were sure of it in 1934 when von Papen critized most radical features of Nazism in a speech at the University of Marbug, was forced to resign. Almost immediately, however, he popped into offical circles again— this time as ambassador at Vienna. There he paved the way for the an- schuluss, arranging the historic meeting between Hitler and Kurt von Schuschnigg, then chancelor of Austria. After this job, he dropped from the limelight. There were rumors that he had fallen out with his leaders, fallen into the hands of the dreaded Gestapo, Germany's secret police. Suddenly, last April he was ordered to Turkey as Hiter's envoy. The pudpose: to prevent Turkey from making an alliance with Engand. This task he failed in. Now he has been licked in an effort to recoup his losses—an effort to talk Turkey out of its decision. • STANDINGS Southern Association "Hub! Vf. L! Pet.

This is a general budget nnd is a good check, but a better budget, the economist advises, may be itimle by breaking this down into several of , the important necessities of family living, such as recreation, development— those things which add cultural values to living, clothing, food grooming and medical cm-e. Many families know what their shelter costs in terms of rent or repairs, but other items of expenditures i re unknown, few families having much conception of how much they spend for clothing, and how little for good grooming, or how much for recreation ami how litltc for development, Mrs. Fenton says. So, by breaking ll>e budget down into the parts suggested, a more satisfactory .spending pattern miiy be acquired. In thi.s regard families shiuld keep in mind, the Extension .specialist point* out, Ih.-it a budget is not a high board fence to hamper one's outlook, hut a guide to a well-rounded living on the available income.

It was not 20 years ago that fruit uice was a luxury, accessible—and nd emergency at that—only to the 1 or the wealthy. But today it is IB exceptional family that does not ave fruit juice on the menu at least nee a day the entire year. Canned fruit juices are available on h market, but the housewives in iempstead county are busy right now toring their pantries with jars of anned juice for use during the months when fresh fruit is not avail- ble. The many ways of using fruit juices make them a most valuable product o have on hand, says Miss Lois Scant- and, extension specialist in foods and urtition, University of Arkansas Col- ege of Agriculture. Fruit juices can e sued singly or combined to make .elicious and wholesome beverages, sherberts, ice cream, puddings, sauces, and gelatine desserts. Since the fruit season is limited. Miss Scantland. advises housewives to can fruit while they may and offers the following pointers to the inexperienced: Select only ripe fruit since it has a richer flavor and is juicer, then wash carefully. In extracting juice from most fruits, heat the fruit, crushing a part to start the drawing of the jliquid. Heating the fruit increases the yield in juice, intensifies the color and de- velopes a more distinctive flavor. Cook the fruit until it is tender, then strain the juice from the pulp through a heavy cloth. Juice may bo pressed out of less solid fruits, such as berries, with a potato masher, food chooper or fruit press. To can, the juice should be poured into sterilized jars and processed by the hot water method. The countv home demonstration agent will furnish tables concerning the -length of time particular fruit juices should be processed. The production of cream, both for home use and for the market, is a very important item in the farm family food supply as well as a very important source of farm incime in Hempstead county. Dairy products, however, are highly perishable, and producers should exercise extreme care in handling milk and cream if they wish to receive the price permium for first grade products, advises Paul Carruth, extensiin dairyman, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. First grade cream, wich is the standard for all cream produced, must, according to the extension dairyman, meet the following standards: Be smooth and fine in texture; free from undesirable odors or flavors; clean ti the taste; and practically free from sediment. In addition the cream must not be excessively sour and must contain at least 25 per cent butter fat. It is only from cream of this quality that high grade butter can be made. Primary considerations stressed by Mr. Carruth in producing first-grade products are cleanliness and proper storage. From the time of milking until the cream in churned on the farm, or until delivered to the creamery, the cream must be protected from bacterial contamination. Clean cows and cleon utensils will help, although, according to the dairyman, all milk and cream becomes sligtly inoculated with bacteria in the process of milking and handling. Some bacteria are harmless, but others will cause off flavor and fermentation, multiplying very rapidly if the product is not stored at a low temperature. The ideal temperature for storing cream in order to prevent too rapid multiplication of bacteria is from 40 to 50 degrees farenhcit, Mr. Carruth said. And as a final pointer concerning the production of high grade cream, Mr. Carruth warns that frash warm cream should never be mixed with cream that is cold. Winter is in the offing along with the increased expenditures for fuel, clothing and other items which it entails, and framilies who have permitted the family budget to collect dust during the summer months, will put it back into operation again if they want to keep their pennies cornered during the next few months. A budget, according to Mrs. Ida A. Fenton, Exteision economist in home management, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture, can be compared to a low fenre whish you string along hoping that it will keep the ratte somewhat in bounds—you really don ot mind their browsing a bit beyond the fense, but yoh desire they keep the heavy grazing within the pasthre.

"Why—why, I was the one who brought you here! If I"— "Because, Inspector" — Chandra's voice was a gentle purr— "another trait Earl Talbert shared with his aunt, Inspector, was the delusion that, single-handed, he could outwit the world. But now" —the clairvoyant stood, suddenly very tall, it seemed to Christine, over the blustering little man— "he is going to tell the whole story. "You are going to tell us, my friend, how gloating over the trick by which you robbed your aunt 12 years ago, you persuaded yourself that you were sufficiently the 'master mind' for a much more daring crime. ... I doubt if you intended murder in the beginning. But probably, after you had drugged Mrs. Talbert and taken what you supposed to be valuable bonds, you realized that she had recognized you"— "I didn't!" Mr. Wilmet's round face was white and drenched with sweat. "I—why, I never heard o£ the woman before last night. . . . Inspector, he's trying to— for God's sake, don't let him do this!" He was cowering before the clairvoyant as he might before an evil genius. For without any of the trappings or stage-setting of his craft, Chandra was again the Oriental mystic Christine had seen that other night; his voice was the purring, hypnotic voice of the seer; his blazing yellow eyes held Mr. Wilmel's eyes as if in a snare. * * + '"TELL them," he commanded, "how, before you had drugged your aunt info helplessness, you forced her to write those l':tt.r-rs. Toll them how, sftc.T you h -id Ivld her in her own car while you rn-ide sure J&spar had f hr-yed her orders, you drove her, oy nirht, to hor own abandoned home. t,nd hid her there while you rifled (he house for anything you might find that could help to point suspicion to someone else. . . .

Tell them how, after you had entered the house with Mrs. Talbert's own key"— "But how could I?" Mr. Wilmet's cry was shrill with triumph. "Why, she didn't have a key." Jaspar broke a shocked silence. "He's right, Inspector," he murmured. "Mrs. Talbert hadn't taken her key with her." Christine, watching as if in a fantastic nightmare, saw the little man freeze as he understood how much he had told in those five words; then leap to his feet and clash blindly, straight into the arms of two uniformed men who had appeared in the doorway. need those laked bonds." From a tangle of images, one started out clean-lined in Christine's tired memory. "I think that if you pried up the top of that stone bench at the back of the booth," she saM, "you might find something underneath." When she explained about that first into morning—her heel sinking soft concrete, Mr. Wilmet's voluble explanations—the inspector went to the telephone and gave an order. "Altogether," he said, turning back, "that bird used up enough ideas in one murder to last a good, honest crook a lifetime. . . . But the thing that puzzled me worst he apparently hadn't hnd a finger in. ... You wondered how I knew that those bonds wore your cousin's, Miss Thorenson.

At the same moment the war-whoop, like the quick chatter of a machine- gun, pulsated upon Kit's cars. The whole hillside was covered with Indians , . The Comache.s were maffni- fimcntly mounted . . Kit knew be could not run away •from them— and there was no cover within miles. Six to two hundred! "Fort, boys!" he snug out. and jumped off his mule, jerking out his scalp-knife Ik-fore his moccasins touched the ground. The mule, with all a mule's instinctive fear of Indians, tried to break away, alinsot jerking the .stocky little- man (iff his feet. But Kit caught (he lariat close to the animal's head, and. as it reared back, passed the keen edge of his knife- across its taunt throat. He jumped clear. While the mule slagtter- ecl, coughing out its life, drenching the short grass with blood, Kit snatched (lie cover from his rifle, looked to th priming, glanced round at his men. They had followed his example. Already three mules were down. Hastily Kit and his comrades flung themselves prone behind the kicking carcasses, pointing the muzzles of their rifles toward the coming warriors.
