"Point with your arm tritcing the path you saw the meteor take." •There." ' This cross-examination is a ?amplc j from work of University of Iowa as- I trunomers. which has just led to some ' interesting evidence on the orains of meteors. Formerly. Dr. C. C, Wylie. lou-a astronomer, reports to the American Astronomical society, it was though rhat meteors must have come from the distance. 1 ; of the stars. If that is true, then meteors would come into the earth's atmosphere from all angles, like bullets shot by snipers on all sides. But. l>y getting the angles firsthand, from personal observers. Dr. Wylie finds this is not true. The meteors all come from about the same angle: show-ins; they are all traveling around the sun like the earth, the other planets and the comeLs Tile cross-examination brings out ii new point. The meteors never were very far from the sun. not as far as the average comet gets in its circuit. The average distances traveled by meteors checked by the Iowa method have not been much above 200.000 miles. Making a Soldier First air-cooled bus service across Arkansas and to the Southwest.

Out of those college groups, and from ; ether sources, there has been built | up a force of 120.000 fairly welltrain- cd reserve officers. That is more than enough for a million men. When the World war started the reserve- officer personnel could have been load ed in a freight car—with spare room for four horses. These reserve officers, in turn, have demonstrated themselves able to train and command civilian soldiers. They have worked with the C. M. T. C. and with the C. C. C. Potential Soldiers As to the potential trained manpower, it lies largely in two directions. Since the Citizens Military Training Corps was organized. 350.000 men have received varying amounts of training. An even greater potential supply i;: in Ihe 2.300.000 men who have spent time in the Civilian Conservation Corps. Recently there has been a lot of agitation to have C. C. C. men receive military training—for instance. to le;>rn foot drill and gun drill. We watched C. M. T. C. younghsters at drill this summer. They learned the essentials of foot drill in four days, two hours a day. Teaching them to shoot would take longer—but not so terribly much longer. Experienced soldiers insist that there is'one tiling new soldiers lack. They don't know how to take up outdoor camp life after years in the comfort ni their homes. They get that knowledge in C. C. C. camps. They learn group living, how to give and take order;, how to get along without pet toods. It would surprise their mothers how fast they could be made into fighting men. • HIGHLIGHTS FROM LATEST BOOKS < STATION Diamond Cafe Phone 363 .Mi.rni»i).s March On to Glory A fascinating Mormon epic is Varclis Fisher's exciting novel, "Children of God" (Harper and Rrnllicrs: S.'SJ, the ia.'ifl Harper prize I'cvel.

Every ci;iy she seemed to bo drawing nearer fo (he abyss into which Angie Doran had crashed She said shin-ply, ''We've never felt the need of ;m understudy. Miss Herrod has been able to handle my work when necessary." Miss Herrod had been with the office for 20 years. She was a plain, unimaginative person, thor- ougbJy satisfied with her position as bookkeeper. "Miss Herrod is getting old," Mr. Fellows objeetcd. "She's only 38." "Well— that'; getting along." Marian wanted to say, "But she's safe — she doesn't want my job." Thirty-eight— getting along — in six years Marian would be 38. — and the last six years had passed like a brief, monotonous whiff of nothing. "You're unfair," she remarked '.vith spirit and the frankness engendered by years of acquaintance. "You men are just getting started at 38." Using Miss Herrod as a subject, she was arguing in her own behalf. He shrugged. "Just the same, Miss Herrod is getting old. We can't let the oflice go to seed. We've got to be constantly on the lookout for new talent and fresh slants." ''You're not planning to let Miss Herrod go—?" fearfully. He pursed his lips. "No. Her job doesn't demand personality. Long as she can manipulate figures •he doesn't need a figure." * * * •pHE telephone buzzed and Marian answered. "Marian — this is Carma." "Oh, yes, Carma— when did you get back?" Carma's yearly trips abroad were the envy of hcr friends. "A week ago." "Why haven't you called mo for lunch?" Possibly Carma had found a suitable winter oulfit for her in Paris. Marian 1 ^ mind made a hurried and doubtful estimate of her bank account. "I haven't been in the mood. Marian — have you heard about' Pete?" Carma's voice was thick and unsteady. "Yes, Dan told me." "I've got to see you. Meet me for lunch, will you?" "Of course — 12:30 — I'll reserve the corner table at Jaques." Replacing the instrument, Marian attacked the mail, slitting the envelopes and glancing at the contents. Making several piles of the open letters, her mind reverted to Sally Blake. "Perhaps Sally should be given a little more opportunity," she said, putting out a feeler. Mr. Fellows answered promptly "I think so." She couldn't let it go at that. "On the other hand," she said thoughtfully, "I don't know as it pays to spend too much time on the young girls. You get them trained, get to depending on them, and about that time they leave to be married." Grant Ft Hows was either completely sold on Sally or in an argumentative mood. "You left to be married," he said. "You tried it out, but you came back after about so Jong. And you were mighty glad to get back, if I ro- membcr rightly." "I wouldn't be here today if Dan had been able to get anywhere in the busincfn world." * « * . FELLOWS leaned back in his chair, touching his fingcr- "Hcrvc pou ever Id Dan imagine thai he is wonderful?" Mr. , c ci- lows' uWs brought baclf memories lo Marian. Could she ever expect lo have that same confidence, that same,' unsctfislt loVc again? I /ir'V had beat .so /i«p/jv. lips in a reflective attitude. "I thought Dan w;>': slated to he sales manager a few years back. The head of his company talked -••.!- thusiastically about him to me. What happened?" "I don't know—exactly." Marian did know, she remembered the incident with bitterness. T!;-jro had been a question a.s to whether Dan or Sims Crane should receive the sales managership. The fact that Sims had a dependent wife and two children had tipped the scales in his favor. Marian had refused to blame herself at the time and she still clung to the, theory that, if Dan had been good! enough, capable enough— I "How's he Retting along now?"' Mr. Fellows persisted. * | "Just the same," she said. "Hoi makes just what he did when we! wore married. He was cut during j the depression—that's when li came back to work. Now lie's drawing $35 a week again." "Thai's pretty good, considering the times. Mighty few of us arc making what \vc were 12 years ago." It was a furprising observation and Marian felt something behind it. "But we couldn't live on it—" "Sure you could. Thousand.-, of families in this country live on much less. Jt just takes a iitllo management. There's n budget to fit every income." Marian wrinkled her no.--e disdainfully. '-Budget—I hate the very sound of the word." "Too many modern women feel like that. It's the answer in the j ever-increasing number of women' in offices and stores." I Marian stared at him. Was he! paving tho way lo tell her that | she had a husband who earned, (hat her place should be given lo a girl who was dependent upon' herself? In the present economic j stress there wa.s a trend that way.' "ATARIAN'S heart beat sicken-' " ' ingly. Grant Fellows had novcr before talked like this; in fact, lie had been finite instru- ' mental in helping Marian out ofj her role as hruwniia^ker, | Had Sally Blike. put the rcvo-1 lutionary ideas into his head? Anrt why the sudden interest in Dan? "Maylx- Han would be happier, th»U';h J douhl it," she said, \viitt an edginc-ss in her tone which, had become noticeable,during the pas* .year, the year since 1 Sally's coining to the oflicc. "But 1 wouldn't be happier. I've stepped up my way of living and I can't come down." "How do you know you'd have to .stay down?" He did iiave something in his mind. Apprehension made Marian's hands unsteady. "I've an idea that if Dan were on liis own—if it were up to him— he'd surprise you by getting .somewhere." Mr. Fellows leaned toward her, shaking a linger impressively. "Listen, my dear—you've done everything to hold Dan back. You've robbed him of his rightful place in society, Ihe head of a home. You've shown him up, as it. were, shamed him before hi.s fellow men." Marian could not take her stricken oycs from his face. They were stricken with fear, not self- condemnation. She refused to admit the truth in Mr. Fellows' pronouncement. He continued. "I'll tell you something. A man will work his fingers to the bone, he'll do without everything lie wants in the; world, to provide for his wife. All ho asks in return is that, she think him wonderful—think him the big boy. Have you ever Jet Dan imagine for one moment that he is wonderful?" Marian said nothing. There had been a time when she thought Dan wonderful, when she believed in him. Her memory carried her bad: to those happy days. Could she ever hope lo have that same confidence in Dan again? That same unselfish love? But you could only believe s» long. After unenriins disappoint- mint you ^;ive up, you gave uu whether you wanted to or not. Angry tears stung behind her eyes. Grant Fellows turned back lo his desk. "Let (lie lii.fle Blake girl iakm my dictation today," lie said. (To Be Continued) -Jtr. Thursday, September 7, J939 boutonnicrc.

One Idol WliQ Is Not Broke In fiction, ex-matinee idols usually wind up on the breadline or in some othel humiliating down grade berth.! But hardly so with Carlyle Blackwell who, your elders—and perhaps you—will recall as the cinematic Adonis of his day. It has been quite a while since the Blackwell profile inul amorous pose has been revealed in celuloid and his exploits as a malinec idol are things of the past. But he did not KI> Ihe way i>[ most former stars. He is finite solvent, think you. Not only is he a partner in an expensive tailoring establishment for which he is a walking model, since his sartorial get-up is the talk of the town, but he has just become the super goodwill man of a huge wine firm. He earns more money now than he ever did in his hey-day as a handsome Romeo! Swing A IM Hivcr Barge Navigators along the North River have been attracted lately by dissonant ."(Hinds emerging from a big yellow barge. The captains of tng-boal.s. barges and miniature freighters who go by on their daily route never investigated the other night, though one grizzled barge commander ventured that the .sounds might be coming from "The Plyin Dutchman." still wailing on the waters for lack or a port. But upon inquiriy, it came out that these strange, nautical .sounds from the yellow barge were notes of swing. And Ihe swing WHS being played by a Harlem band rehearsing for a concert- at Carnegie Hall. The band is under the direction of^'Lucky" Huberts one of the musical heroes of negro Lenox Avenue.

Throwing Bulls Still Banned A renowned campaign to legalize bullfighting in New York has enjoyed an intense drive the past few weeks. Out at Grover Whalen's Fail- party, Sidney Franklin, the Brooklyn toreador who is somewhat of a hero in the arenas of Spain has been demonstrating the art of the bullfight with real bulls—and with the permis- ion of the authorities. No one was iiii-t. but no one showed any sign >f relenting in an adamant altitude ibout that gory sprt. But now Sex h;|s been introduced nto the issue because from war-torn Spain comes Socdad Mirallcs. one >f the few lady bullfighters in the -.atin world.
