Searcy Nation's Girls fo Serve Also Girl Scouts Have War Program All Set Out By MARGUERITE YOUNG NEA Service Staff Writer NEW YORK - War finds about half a million ''women of tomorrow"—uniformed 7-to-18-year-old Girl Scouts- right in there, leading by example. From Honolulu to Bangor, Maine, they swung into action as the attack came, and they're on emergency duty now. In their ready-made, 'new Senior Service Scouts program there is about 3,000,000 high school misses as want to fall in line. There's work for grown women too, training and supervising them. You get a good idea of what goes on by looking at war messages on top of Mrs. Paul Rittcnhouse's desk, i high above Manhattan's midtown roar. Mrs. Rittenhouse is national director of the orgnnization. "Council members, leaders, Scouts all serving in emergency," reads a cablegram to headquarters here. "No Scout casualties known. AH of us Personal Mention Friends of Fred Cook will be glad to know that his condition is reported improved following an appendicectomy in the Methodist hospital in Dallas.

San Francisco gives more details. There's a letter from the Scout Council's director, relating: Girls Scouts Serve As Air Raid Wardens "Many are already assigned as nir raid wardens and watchers. A great many are on Red Cross and other Civilian Defense jobs. We hope to cuen centers in the districts this week for relief work. Great impeuts has been given to the SSS program . . You see we really are geared . . ." The Girl Scouts arc "geared,"'in fact, they're inaction in hundreds of communities. They're bicycle couriers, speeding air-raid-drill messages, blanket-brigadiers in charge of practice- raid covering for the "injured," emergency guardians of "evacuated" children in community defense demonstrations, hospital aides, collectors of scrap for fighting equipment and of books for soldiers and sailors' lib- substitute telephone opcra- . they're even taking up forest conservation where CCC boys leave off to go into the Army. As War was declared, headquarters here wired President Roosevelt renewal of a pledge that was accepted by him last spring—a pledge to ro double Scout training and put all mem hers and facilities at the country's service. Their sclup includes 138,000 trained volunteer and professional leaders,' adults. Months ago, local councils all over the country started a big war-on- waste campaign, and national leaders set up Senior Service Scouts program. Older girls of 14 to 18 were nothing new in the organization, but now their skills will be trained like guns directly on defense needs. Their program was overhauled and expanded in precise relationship to both pro- nines, tors . . Ex-Corporal Jimmy Stewart is replacing those chevrons with the gold shoulder bar of a second lieutenant.

Reid looks on. tection and morale-building Civilian Defense considerations. Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt approved the "well-planned" program. Civilian Defense Director Fiorello H. La- Guardia seconded her. During the first week of war, scout and defense leaders consulted together locally and nationally, called for just more of the things that were under way. Tilings like these, already done: Scouts Already Practice Useful Arts Washington, D. C., Scouts saved a nearby Virginia forest—a valuable white growth—when a CCC company left it to go into training. Blister rust struck the trees. The Scouts responded to the forester's call for help. They went by truck and pulled up by hands hundreds of blighted currant an<3 goose-berry bushes—"a vital defense job," according to the forester's official report. In New York: Blind Scouts are trained and practiced to aid air raid wardens in evacuating younger blind schoolmates. In Los Angeles: mapped hundreds of blocks of the town, each group covering an area twenty blocks in each direction from their own block, marking places for special protection and for air raid shelters. In Fort Wayne, Indiana: supplied personnel to local Civilian Defense Council, also girl aides to execute administration. And so the story could go on—young girls swinging into act- Imported India Burlap to U.S. Stopped by War Farmers Urged to Guard Against Probable Shortage in America .u ? e oulbrea k of hostilities in the Far East and India, it is especially important that farmers help conserve burlap to guard against a probable shortage, according to Earl Martindale, chairman of the Hempslead county USDA Defense Board. "The United States is entirely dependent on imports for its supply of burlap which comes almost exclusively from India," he explained. "About 80 per cent of our total burlap imports go into the manufacture of bags and about three-fourths of the burlap bags manufactured are used to package commodities which farmers buy and sell. In 1939-40 approximately 459 million yards of burlap were used in sales or purchases by fanners. "Besides these normal uses for burlap, there is an increased demand for H to package foods for the nation's armed forces, certain chemicals, concrete and other articles, as well as for the packing of many items shipped abroad under the Lend-Lease act." An effort is being made to expand the production of coarse cotton fabrics to be used as substitutes for burlap but it is probable that in spite of this, some shortages of fabric packing materials will develop. Cotton bags would be quite satisfactory substitutes for burlap in most uses, but their increased use is limited by war needs such as tents, uniforms and sandbags, which have placed a heavy burden on cotton fabric manufacturers. Farmers may help greatly to alleviate any shortage by handling bags more carefully so that they may be reused, by returning used bags to dealers as quickly as possible for reuse and by repairing bags that are only slightly damaged but still suitable for further use. reported their dirccto. "Forty-six appeared promptly. Wailing fo girls from distant schools, they talked of the crisis. Several remarked how glac they were to be prepared. . 'Prepared how?' one asked.

"Mom," he said, kind of sad and thoughtful. • "What?" "I've been thinking. Don't ask me what with; I'm serious." "What are you serious about, Big Boy?" "Your little pal. She's got me going, feet." She sure is fast on her "A girl's got to be, to stay in the same ring with you. And I don't mean wedding ring." That's when I got my first surprise. "I do," he said, "I'm going to marry your Juddy." "Kid stuff!" I said. "Kid, nothing. Mom, I'm 25 years old." He gave me a quick sketch of his life. Since high school days he'd been really a pro under cover. It wasn't false colors, because in those coast schools where he played, that sort of thing was perfectly kosher. Baseball, basketball, hockey; he was a darb at all of them, but football was his best bet. "Next fall I can be in the money, Mom," he said. "Real money, too. This is under your shirt. Did you notice a slick- looking bird that called me out one night when Juddy and I were eating?" It happened I did. "He's a fixer for a bunch that follow championship football. Big money birds. He hinted around about how easy an end might fumble a pass or miss a tackle or two. Well, I wasn't having any or that. Then he came out flat and said it'd be worth a year's pay if I had to quit football before the Balestier game." "Haven't you got an agreement With Welliver?" ,. "Nothing in. writing. Anyway, those deals are full of holes." "J suppose they are," J said, i *75ure! Nobody would expect a fellow to pass up a better offer from another school. As a practical woman, you can see that yourself, Mom." * * • I could of course. But I doubted whether Juddy would be that broadminded. She never had the advantages of business training. I told him so. "Have you put it up to her?" I asked him. Yes, he had. She didn't like the smell of it, he told me. "There's another way, too," he said. "That rat, Oliver, is all set to flunk me in Am. Eth. Suppose I oblige him? That would put me on probation and ease me off the football squad automatically." He rambled on, mostly about how unreasonable Juddy was about some things. She was dead set that he must stick to his Am. Eth. till he'd licked it. She'd got it up her little snoot that Doc Oliver wasn't giving him a fair deal. So Angel's line was to make a monkey of him fay passing the exam. She'd help him work on it, evenings. Oh, yeah?—I said to myself. And he'd be working on her at the same time. From Angel's long rigmarole, I didn't make out whether Juddy was for the marriage or not. Anyway, I had an alternative idea for Juddy. And I figured it was about time to spring it. I got an opening the next night. It was raining hard when the nedgehawk showed up at the Feederia. She was a plump, pink old gal, with pop eyes and an innocent expression which she used in her business. At dinner she asked Juddy could she look around the place, because she had icard a lot about Tambay, which was reasonable enough. Rain or no rain she took her flashlight and went prowling around the old garden, and I could see that bright streak making lines along the earth, like she was down on her uiees, s spooking under the boxwood hedge and some of the big japonica bushes. That ought to have made me eery, but it wasn't till I got home after cleaning up that I caught her with her printed contract, and Juddy all ready to put her John iancock on the dotted line. The boxwood hedge and six of the best japonicas, all for one hundred and twenty-five bucks. I took the hedgehawk by the slack of her mackintosh and ran her out of there. * * * kind of a deal is this?" I said to Juddy. "I need the money," she said. 'Xambay needs it." , "Don't be a sucker," I told her. "That boxwood alone is good for two thousand smackers, if the right purchaser sees it You need a guardian." "I expect so," she said. She let her head go down. "What am I going to do?" she said, low and kind of scared. "Hook up with Mom and make some money," I said. "The tourist camp?" she said. "Tambay Tourist Camp. Grade A Lodgings for Grade A Folks. Judson & Baumer, Proprietors." I got out pad and pencil and gave her a high pressure sales- talk. For five hundred and fifty dollars per unit we could put up a row of log-and-wattle cabins with hillbilly labor, which is cheap and quick and good, because the billies build their own houses that way. That figure would include plumbing and furnishing. Add 10 per cent for error and make it six hundred. To pipe water down from Tambay Spring would spoil a thousand more, and there'd be another grand, at least, in an electric light outfit and a septic tank. "How many cabins would we have?" Juddy said. That "we" sounded good to me. "Twelve to start with. That's going to push a ten thousand dollar bill right up against the wall and cut its sweet throat." She looked me between the eyes. "Where do we get the ten thousand?" "That's the point, Juddy. How much have you got?" "A little more than six thousand dollars in the world. Not counting Tambay, and that's mortgaged right up to the moss on the roof." "You can't live on the income of that," I told her. "No, I can't." "Then what's left to you but to take a chance? Not that you're taking much. This is a sure winner. Cabins like those rent for two dollars, single; three double. And look what the Feederia will take in. How can we lose?" Juddy's face was mighty serious. "Have you ever worked out any of these schemes that couldn't lose, Mom?" Well, you had to be honest with Juddy. "Some of them did," I said. "But I am still eating three 1 day." "How much would I have to put in?" "I've got five thousand in the sock," I said. "Will you match She shut her eyes and took a ,ong breath. "Yes," she said. "Let's go over and see Maurie Sears/' I said. "He'll draw up the contract." (To Be Coutittued) M UCH has been written about feminine hygiene.
