In those long ago days the primitive people who inhabited pile huts in the Lake of Zurock got most of their edible oil from poppyseed. Switzerland now is again encouraging raising of poppygeed for that purpose, as well as mustard, rapeseed, chestnuts, maize, soya beans and even tobacco.

AS BROADWAY AFTER DARK That's "NEW YORK TOWN" Fred MacMurroy with Mary Martin Robert Preston Deer Poachers Bring Horrors of War Home By JAY VESSELS AP Fcnfurc Service MINNEAPOLIS-- Th.e horrors of war me not nil confined to the war- fronl. Some of them ore being experienced in Minnesota's big woods. This is mainly because of the activities of deer and mooae poachers. Four deaths have been caused by the outlaws. In o recent case, an ilegal hunter, shining deer at night, was returning to camp after an unsuccessful shoot. Just as he approached th c grounds, his powerful flashlight focused on what the thought were doer eyes, The man fired just as soon as his light refelccted the target. Tho bullet from the 30--iO calibre rifle struck the victim—a lifelong comrade of the hunter—in the hip, literally blosling n hole through his body. He bled to death after an ugon- jzing four-hour journey to a hospital. The poacher gave himself up. Game wardens explained that these outlaws strop a powerful light to their rifle barrel. When the rays reflect a deer's eyes the hunter is set to fire instantly. He spots the eyes which shine' brightly in the strong light, lower the gun to cover the animal's body and shoots. In some cases after realizing they had shot a human being, the outlaws have fled, leaving their victims to die alone in the brush.

The province produced 64,000 bushels during 1940 Starting weakly with trite, sonorous statements supposed to have been uttered by stars, the publicists soon were hitting their stride by having various citties elected by organizations nnd colleges as "The Girl With Whom We'd Most Like to Be Caught'in n Blackout." .

Jumped the Guns Naturally proud of tremendous facilities—.such as trucks, mobile power plants and trained technical crews— which the studios have put at the command of civilian and military authorities, some of the publicity boys assumed a little too readily that movie lots soon would be providing' rifles and machine guns from their private arsenals.

"ViUles." ; She drew down her brows at me in a funny, cute, puzzled way She had. I handed her my business card, a small copy of the road-canvas I hung out wherever I settled in for trad,e.

"Spanish accent but good, American cooking. Come over and look at the grubwagon." Over the years, I've put a lot of thought and work into my layout. J don't believe there's anything better on wheels. Jane Ann took it all in—table with benches to hold 12 at a pinch, stove with a collapsible tin chimney at one end and a washboiler underneath, the plates and cups racked along the walls, and an overhead trolley, my own invention, for carrying filled orders. "It's the neatest thing I ever saw in my life," she said. "All it needs is standing room for its four wheels," I said. "What do you say to a dollar a day?" "You mean you want to start in business here?" "Start!" I said. "Listen, gal. I've spread my smoke and wowed the feeders in every state in the Union this 10 years and better, and now I'm about ready to be a violet by a mossy stone for a spell. What's that stretch of ground producing for you? Sparkleberry and ragweed. Could you use the money or not?" She grinned at me. "You're a dangerous character, Mrs. Baumer." "Skip the flattery," I said. "I'm dangerous only when roused." "But this is a side road," she said. "Nothing much comes through here." , "It'll be coming." "How do you know?" * * » "IT'S my business to know about roads and what runs on 'em. There's a short cut booked through here to hook up with the main route 50 miles south." I got out my road map. "Look. Here's Tambay. Two hoots and a holler down-creek the new bridge goes in. There'll be a detour set within a couple of weeks that'll begin to divert the traffic to us. And will we be sitting pretty! Here's Brandon, four miles west. What's the hotel there? A dump. Leverton's 20 miles east with a two-by- four inn that's dying on its feet from trying to put over big-town prices. Beyond that is Welliver U. We ought to be able to cut in i Well, I was prepared for whiskers, but this bird looked like the players bench of the House of David. Above the waist he wore a pair of sun-glasses. Good afternoon, Prof," I said. for a piece of the college trade. Competition? Not a decent feed- joint at a reasonable price for 5C miles either way. The gasseries have nothing but Bar-B-Q stuiT, take it or leave it, and I'd advise leaving it. Start a classy feecleria here and you're set. It may not be a sight draft on the U. S. Treasury, but it ain't hay, either. By the way, who's the Hairy Ainu and why do you keep him in a stockade?" "Oh," she said, "he won't bother you. He's an Indian-digger." "You don't mean a Digger Indian, do you?" "He's a professor or something at Welliver University," "Did he just happen in and build that picket fence around him?" "No, there's some sort of ancient lease that gives the university a right to dig holes in my property." "What say we go over and investigate him?" She shook her head. "Not interested. I don't luce whiskers. You talk to him." A signed work of art by Welliver University, warmly inviting me and everybody else to keep out, stared me in the face. * * * "WELL, I was prepared for whiskers, but this bird looked like the players' bench, of the House of David. Above the waist he wore a pair of sun-glasses. "Good afternoon, Prof," I said. He leaned on his pick. "How do you do?" he said. "Didn't you see the sign?" "Sure, I saw the sign," I said. "But Welliver University needn't stand on formality with a neighbor. I just dropped in to tell you that lunch will be served in the dining car at 12, noon." "Thank you," he said. "I brought my own. No sale." "In that case," I said, "hail and farewell." He took of! his glasses to blink at me. Nice eyes, I noticed. "You aren't by any chance one of my dear little pupils masquerading for an iiiitiaUoa stunt, are you?" j "Old Mom Baumer, as advert Used,". I said, and handed out my card. "Thank you," he said. "Come over and try the menu,", I said. "It's on the house this time." Well, I could see that he didn't want to, but he couldn't figure how to get out of it. I put up a first-class feed for him and he liked it. As a conversationalist he was hard going. But I dredged out of him that he was Assistant Professor of Amerind Ethnology over at Welliver, on a special as-j signment to excavate for relics. li was delicate work; nobody but an expert could be trusted with it. He was all wrapped up in it; you could see he'd much rather; have been let alone to think about it while he ate, than have to talk to me. So I handed him one. "There must be a reason foD whiskers like yours, Professor." "Gnats," he said. I expect I looked startled for he went on kind of hurriedly. "Insects, you know. It keeps them off." i "Are you going to be here right along?" I asked. "No," he said. "My month "is up in a few days. Then I go back to my classvvork. But I ex-> pect to be working here weekends^ Those are very fine batter cakes; Mrs. Baumer." I figured that I'd maybe won me a boarder. The hour after lunch I put in looking around the plantation. The grand old place was all gone to seed. There had been a gale of wind the week before and the oroad lawn in front was all clut- Lered. The garden was a jungle, barn a shell, smokehouse a wreck, and half the stables had fallen ini The house wasn't any better. A person with a busted glass eye :ould see that the whole show was leaded for the junkpile. It didn't seem right for anything as young and fresh and vivid as Jane Ann Judson to be buried in the landslide. One of the things I had to find out was why she was there all by herself. So I invited her to supper. (To Be Continued) U.S.Has$1 Year Women In Defense Setup Yardstick Applies in Reverse By LUCRECE IIUDGINS AP Feature Service Writer WASHINGTON - The way things used to be, the more money a woman made, the more important she was. But in the national defense setup Ihe yardsfick often applies in reverse. The harder a lady works the less salary she collecls. For the harder a lady works the less salary she collects. For instance, the biggest name in the Office of Civilian Defense is that of Eleanor Roosevelt. Mrs. Roosevelt doesn t punch a time-clock but, when she's in town, she keeps regular office hours from 9 until 4. That kind of employment isn't a tea party. Yet, Mrs. Roosevelt works WQC which means without compensation Her partner, Mrs. Morgenthau, is rated the same way. So ore a number of other "big names" in the emergency offices, including Eloise Davi- spn, an executive director in the office, of-civilian defense, and Mary I Barber, expert foot} consultant to the Secretary of War. Working without pay really isn't as appalling as it sounds. What happens is Uncle Sam picks out a woman who has made a big name for herself in private business. He then. "borrows" her from her employer. While she works for the government, she continues to receive her salary from her private boss and, in addition, gets a $10 a day expense account from Uncle Sam. For example, Eloise Davison has been an executive on a New York newspaper for many years. Now she is "on loan" by that paper to La Guardia's Office of Civilian Defense. One of the busiest women in Washington, she keeps three secretaries on the run. By telephone, mail and personal contact, she is mobilizing the country's volunteers in defense. Yet, technically, she is still employed by the New York newspaper. Mary I. Barber, who personally okays every plate of hash put before pn Army private, is "loaned" to the government by the Kellogg company m Battle Creek. Originally, Miss Barber was employed as a dollar-a-year woman. Last June, the treasury sent her a check for 12 cents which was as much as she earned of the dollar. Since then she has been working without compensation except for the usual Per diem expense account of ten dollars. And, of course, the salary she continues to receive from the Kel- Jogg company. Oveta Cul Hobby, expert consultant to the Secretary of War, is a real dollar-a-year woman. The Houston Chronicle, of which she is executive vice president, "loaned" her to the war department to tell mothers, wives, sisters and sweethearts, what their menfolk are doing in Army camps. Alice Marble, former National women's tennis champion, is another dollar-a-year woman but does not work directly out of Washington. Miss Marble runs the physical training pro- Large Lake ^ Balkash Lake, in Russian Cehttat Asia, i slarge rtha.n the entire «wff of Massachusetts, being 8400 squire miles in area.
