"NEW YORK TOWN" with Fred Mary MacMurray Martin Robert Preston BrightSfyles, Dark Nights New Blackout Styles Rolling Off Assembly Line H.V DOROTHY ROE AP Fashion Keillor Even 11 blackout could be fun, with the practical but lighl-hpni-lecl new blackout styles rolling off the assembly line of American fashion. A major highlight is a specially designed blackout coat which can double as u bath or beach robe. Tailored as carefully us nn evening coat, it comes in dark flannel or natural color camel's hnir, full length to be slipped on over a nightgown if you're roused by a night air raid alarm. One model has an attached hood, so you may be covered from beat! to toy and ready for como-whal- mny at a moment's notice. The blackout coat has capacious pockets, for carrying flashlight, cosmetics extra rations and other blackout supplies. Not only up to the minute but way out in front are the new blackout hats presented by two famous millioners. One? shows a turban, ornamented by a miniature flashlight. The other's huts gloves, handbags and scarves arc treated with n luminous substance that shines in the dark. Even shoes are attuned to the times. Girls who like to lake walks at night should welcome the sturdy walking slu.es with small leather-encased fash- lights on each side of the Scotch tongue, to light footsteps in the dark. There are spacious blackout bags with lung straps to sling over your shoulder and roomy compartments equipped with flashlight, first-aid kit and other practical wartime accessories. Zippered compartments provide space for an extra sweater, a book, playing cards or chocolate. Then there are white oilcloth pillbox hats, gaily embroidered in bright yarn scrolls, planned to shine in a blackout. American stylists are taking the war in their stride. They mean to see to it that American women are well- dressed in or out of the blackout. Swingy Indians Step Out Off the Reservation AP Feature Scrvivcc FORT HALL, Idaho—Beat that tom- tom, swing it. chief, while we cut an Indian vug. Yes, sir, it's Saturday night on the Fort Hall Reservation and not a young Indian is in his tee-pee. They're all clown stamping around at the white men's jive joints in Pocatello and other nearby towns. And can they shake it? The paleface jitterbugs say they can. But on Friday night, the young Shoshone- Bannocks gather with their elders in the reservation's buffalo lodge to move through the traditional dances of their forefathers. Occasionally they slip into a fox trot or waltz when the beat of the tom-tom hits a jitterbug tempo, Slusser, Mrs. Thelina Moore, and Mrs. J. J. Battle of Fluton. DRESS SALE!

The moviemen have been warned that although pictures may be considered essential to public moral, the pictures had belter be good. Otherwise no film. The same materials which go into film also are used for explosivess; so if Hollywood wants priorities consideration, movies will have to be as effective as shells in the prosecution of the war.At least, so said ex-Director Carson Kanin, now in a government management job. He's the only one who has told the producers that Hollywood, up to now, hasn't been doing as much ns it should have done. No Gesture "Shanghai Gesture" was previewed the other evening, but it'll probably bo a year or two before members of the local press receive their invitations to the affair.For a stunt, the handsomely done-up invitations wore shipped to Shanghai to be mailed back to Hollywood from there.

I put that fifth columnists in quota- lion marks because there is no evidence yet that it was an organized effort inspired by any contact with the enemy. Police, civilian defense and government officials consider it more likely that they are cranks, pranksters, and ignorant or misinformed individuals But in any event, their contribution to the fifth column has been so serious here that officials have asked the FBI to invesligate. For example, all those tuned in on the District of Columbia police radio the other night were .set back on their heels to hear the words: "Air raid alarm^air raid alarm" come blaring out of them either. The dispatcher was probably more stunned than any one else. According to the local Office of Civilian Defense that isn't the first time such things have happened. The limes police, OCD, and newspaper telephone switchboards have been jammed by queries on rumors already are so numerous that I've lost count of them. These rumors act like incendiary bombs tossed into the haystack of capital humanity. They seem to come from nowhere and set whole sections on fire all at once.

"There won't be anyone else unless the Indian digger comes in. Do you good to meet a little company." "Please don't mind my not being clubby." "I don't mind anything," I said. "Just to prove it, I'm going to shoot you full of questions." '.• "What kind of questions?" .£ could feel her tense up. . "Snoopy ones, of course.' Nobody's got to look twice at you to see that you've been used to money. Plenty of it." "There isn't plenty of it 'any more." "Then what are you here for?" She hesitated over that. Then she must have figured that I was friendly. She said, "I've got to live somewhere. My theory is that I'll keep this up as long as I can and then go down with the ship." "Maybe the ship won't go down," I said, for an idea was fermenting in the old brainpan.> "Maybe not," she said. I tapped my garter and peeled off three ten-spots from the roll. "What's this?" she said. "The first month's rent." 1 I gave the space the once-over. There was plenty to be done before I could £et going. Weeds and scrub grew wnist- -"Hiya, Toots," Angel called. Jane Ann came over to the wagon steps and looked at .him ancLdidn!t_say a_word. Only her eyebrows went up. Fulton Wedding of Interest Looiilly Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Wilson of Pulton announce the marriage of their daughter, Martha Louise, to Otis Blackwood ,son of Mr. and Mrs. Blackwood of Okay. The wedding was solemnized in the Union church of Fulton Sunday evening, January 4, with the Reverend Otis Graham, pastor of the First Presbyterian church of Texarkana, officiating. Miss Eleanor Seymor served the bride as maid of honor and only attendant. Jim Rowland, cousin of the bride, was Mr. Blackwood's best man. For her wedding the bride was lovely in an ice blue ensemble with black accesories. Mrs. Blackwood will remain in Fulton, where she is bookkeeper for the Temple Merchantile Co. and Mr. Blackwood left immediately to rejoin his company in the United States Army.

I was just working up a nice sweat when a jaloppy rattled in and a young Greek god got out. He was a big, square-shouldered, flat-backed, blond-haired bird with nice, friendly blue eyes and a Welliver football sweater. "Hiya, Mom Baumer," he said. "That's me," I said. "Pleased to meetcha, Big-and-Handsome." "It'll be breakfast for me. 'l could eat a horse." "Just out of horsemeat.' Eggs. Ham or bacon. Griddle cakes. Coffee and toast." "Right. That's my order,"-he said. "Your night on the tiles hasn't spoiled your appetite, Big Boy," I said. "Tiles, your eye!" he came back at me. "I've been gold prospecting." "And this is the Hotel Ritz.'ll said. , "No; I mean, it.' Haven't you heard? It's headlined in the papers. They've struck gold again. Back in the Colony Hills." "Find anything?" I asked. "Not a sparkle. I've got no luck anyhow." And he smiled like a cherub on a pink cloud. "You ought to be able, to roll 'your own luck with that face and shape," I told him. "Thanks," he said, finishing the last six cakes. "How about putting this on the hook, Mom? I'm Angel Todd." So this was the Great Todd. Nevertheless and notwithstanding, as they used to say in Montana, rules are rules. "Angel or devil, there's no tick here," I said. "That'll be sixty- five cents, please." He spilled his cash-pocket, spreading out two quarters, three dimes, a nickel, and seven pennies. "How much gas could I buy for twenty-seven cents?" he asked, "The old boat's about dry." * * * WELL, I went soft. I told him ** to put his money back. And then, while he was promising that he'd be over to settle soon, his face lit up like a parade. I took get it at all?" a look outside, and there was Miss Jane Ann Judson, coming up from the riverbank. '."What's that?" Angel Todd said. "My niece," I said, looking 1 him in the eye. "Any niece of yours is a niece of mine, Mom," he said. "Hiya, Toots!" he called. She came over to the wagon steps and looked at him and then at me and she didn't say a word. Only her eyebrows went up. "All right," I said. "Meet Miss Jane Ann Judson. This is Angel Todd. That name mean anything to you?" "I'm afraid it doesn't," she said. "Should it?" He looked like he didn't believe her. "Don't you ever read the sporting pages?" he said. "Not the local ones." I kind of liked the way he spotted her for class after his false start. "A probably All-America triple threat isn't exactly local," I told her. "Oh!" she said. "Sorry." As an apology it was very cold-storage. "Look," he said. "There's a basketball game Saturday. I'm playing. If I sent a couple of tickets, would you be interested?" "Mom might. I wouldn't, thank you," Jane Ann answered him. "Well, look," .he said. "You don't have to go this second, do you? Look, now. There's a Rogues' dance next week. You know; Chi Rho Gamma. What about that, girlie—I mean, Miss Judson?" This found no market either. Jane Ann asked me if there was anything I wanted from town and went away. "What's the matter with her?" he said. "Or is it me?" "Oh, you're all right, I guess," I said. "But Jane Ann Judson is nobody's yes-girl." ''You sure handed him the ice- tray," I told Jane Ann when she got back. him'!" "Nothing 'What's wrong with „ special," she said. "Nothing at all, I guess." "You've got to admit he's got something," I said. "Don't you "You see," she said kind of tired, "I've seen him before." "What goes on here?" I said. "You know this bird?" "Not him exactly," she said, "but the type. Travelling on their manly charm. It isn't good enough. First thing you know, the charm goes out like a light and you bump against things in the dark. Oh, well! It isn't fatal. Only, you lose your taste for it." * * * TVEXT morning I was up early for the truck trade. Truckles are the pick of the road. Hearty eaters and no kick on a fair price for a good article. Six lots had fed by seven o'clock and I was tidying up after them when Jane Ann Judson strolled in. She took a gander at my three-color banner that I'd strung across the right-of-way between a redgum and a cottonwood, and then cocked an ear at the ground like a robin listening for a worm. "What's the idea?" I said. "Can't you hear the Mauries turning in their graves?" "The exercise will do 'em good. How do you like my advertising display yourself?" "Matter of taste," she said. "Matter of business," I told her. "It pulls. This is going to be a Busy Corner." "Do you really like doing it?" she asked. There was a kind of wistfulncss in the way she spoke, like she wished she had something to do that she liked. "It's my line," I said. "Show me any other as good. Take sand- wicnes, for instance. You smear a cent's worth of bread with a dash of butter, slip in a two-cent slab of meat, a lettuce leaf and a pickle, and what nave you got? A barbecue sandich that you can sell for two bits, twenty-five cents, the quarter part of anybody's dollar. That's business." She kind of laughed. "You wouldn't need a helper, would, you?" (To Be Continued) they could only come from practical jokers with a misguided sense of humor; others arc so subtle that they must be considered the work of persons seeking to spread alarm and confusion and delay the effective organization and delay the effective organization of civilian defense. That, at any rate, is how the FBI classifies them and it's on thai basis that they are making their investigations. The fact that some persons are set up to break into the capital's radio broadcasts, commercial as well as police, is considered a pretty serious matter. Still, the worst setbacks to civilian defense here where organization should be a model for the whole country have resulted from indifference, ignorance, and the failure of defense officials to clarify their orders and instructors. The first air raid test was a joke. Not one hundredth of the population was able to hear the sirens. On another occasion, and for no apparent reason, all District air raid wardens were ordered to patrol their posts from sundown to sunup. It was the coldest night Washington has had this winter. Maybe you think civilian defense didn't take a beating that night. I met one of the wardens the next morning. Between yawns and rubbing his bloodshot eyes, he said: "I drank a pint of whisky and 12 cups of coffee and called my chief eight times to find out what I was supposed to do, I never did find out. The line was always busy. He must have left the receiver off the hook." Over the holidays, teachers were ordered to keep a 24-hour vigil at all Washington schools. Here was fertile soil for the "fifth columnists," and apparently they made hay. It took about three days for officials to get out with an explanation which, when it finally came, was more than adequate. The OCD wanted to use the schools as information dispersal centers. Properly organized, it would be an ideal setup. As it was, it caused more furore in the capital than the three declarations of war and the visit of Winston Churchill combined. Britishers working here who went through the early days of the war in England say, "It's the same the whole world over. Wait until you get a few bombs. That will straighten things out. It did at home." Spider Barometers ; It is possible to use spiders as barometers. They spin long threads if the day is to be fine, and strengthen their webs and shorten the threads if rain is near. Leak Detector Operating on the principle of the stethoscope, an instrument invented in London enables a tester to detect leaks in water pipes and also to determine in which way the water is flowing. Citizens Abroad Four thousand American citizens are residents of Great Britain, and 12,000 others, mostly tourists and travelers, returned home at the outbreak of the war. You Can't Beat 1 the Dutch at Submarining AP Feoiuri- Sen-ice It was back in 3622 that Cornelius van Drebel, a Dutch scientist in the service of King James I of England, sent his six-oared submraine— the first underwater vessel— thum- ing beneath the surface of the Thames River. Not until 15(1 years later was thfe submarine turned from scientific to war usage, when David Bushnel, ah American, designed the "Turtle" .Alan unsuccessful effort to sink die English warship "Eagle" of New York. Now 320 years after Drebel, tough Dutch sailors are making history with his invention. When the Nazi* invaded Holland, the Dutch submarine fleet consisted of 24 vessels. All made the trip then to the Netherlands East Indies without escort. United Europe The Due de Sully, then secretary ta King Henry IV of France, outlined a plan to weld the nations of Europe into one federation more than 300 years ago.
