Alterations of Tune Market Wartime Product Will Have More Zip and Zoom By JOHN SELBY Associated Press Arts Editor NEW YORK — If this war runs along the same musical line the last war took, American popular music will change character in a few months. And Americans of every creed and every color will change it. There already has been an epidemic of patriotic songs, best known being "God Bless America," one of the least worthy, musically. But most popular tunes will speed up. The languorous sliding tunes of the last few months wiM tighten. The ,wo-step might even come back, in some disguise. Melodies will develop along the lines of bugle calls and simple combinations such as the tones of the tonic chord, as happened 25 years ago with "Over There" and its cousins. And alongside all this will develop story-telling songs, some of which have only a vague connection with war or war activities. These will glorify people and events, and will be blood relatives of the ballad. A sample of these "just grew" a few weeks ago. John Hammond, who supervises popular recording for Columbia, got .an idea and called Richard Wright, who was just dressing to go out fo the evening. "I wish you'd write me some blues lyrics about Joe Louis," Hammond said. "I'm going to ask Count Basie to do the music, and Paul Robeson to sing it." Wright, who is the well known ne- gro novelist, sat down suddenly. He explained that he didn't write verse, although some early efforts of his were now under lock and key, that he was doing two novels and a picture book at the moment. Then he said he'd try Before he went out he wrote twelve verses. Next morning Hammond called again. "Yes," said Wright, "I did some, but I'm afraid to look at them this morning." But he looked, revised them for a ouple of hours, and sent them along. K. couple of -weeks later the disk was one. It's called "King Joe," and it Us both sides of a record and its ne of Count Basic's best. Wright thinks it's the kind of collaboration that might effectively revise the people's music—something hot from the pan, not too serious, but ARKANb/\b BY BIRT NA»M THE LONcf BUIUT IN THE BUY UNITED STATES SAVINGS ONDS AMD STAMPS A LI»N«J pe.Sie>P OUD 6tM T-HEAfRE. urri-E.

War sequences show training flashes in camp, battle action in the Argonne Forest in France. One engagement, most famous single encounter of War, is pictured in detail. This is the action where York performed his amazing feat of single-handedly killing 25 German machine gunners and, with the aid of a handful of comrades, capturing 132 prisoners. For this act he was decorated with the Congressional Medal of Honor, the Distinguished Service Cross, the French Croix de Guerre with palm, and other Allied valor awards:. In bestowing the Croix de Guerre, Marshal Foch told Yark what he had done was the greatest single achievement of any soldier of all the Allied armies during the four years of the war.

It seemed that after a clay of Christmas shop- ling and Red Cross work, women lurried home to serve dinner out of cans, so the dishes could be washed before the air raid alarm sounded. Hardest problem to solve now is that of household assistance. Until the day of that treacherous bombing, the problem had been bad enough, for girls were deserting the kitchens for move lucrative jobs in defense industries. Now the Japanese cleaning boys are gone, too. San Franciscans to a great extent depended on the 30 or more Japanese housework agencies to attend to the weekly housecleaning. Togo would arrive regularly with vacuum cleaner and window washing equipment, and go through the house like a small brown whirlwind. Now — "So sorry, not coming any more. The agencies are closed.

Now she gets up at dawn, cooks her husband's breakfast, feeds the children their cereal, and gets them off to school. She knows they'll be safe there, for schools are instructed to keep children indoors should an alarm sound by day. Mothers arc requested not to call for them. So Mrs. M. "reels up" the house, then inspects the furnace room to decide whether it would be safer to put th children there at night, or if it woulc be wiser to leave them undisturbec in their own room. She compromise: by moving the beds away from tin windows. This makes the room lool out of proportion, and she's sure t crash into the beds in the dark, but it's better than rising shattered glass.

The disk has gone into the juke boxes, and will reach more people n a week than Wright's novels will each in a year, even though they are very popular. But don't forget,'' he says, "that nobody will know who wrote the lyric—not that I care." Wright is a quick, shrewd man in his thirties, born in the deep South, graduate of the over-touted school of hard knocks, tough enough to take what comes. He writes out of a social experience unknown to all whites, and what he has known colors both his writing and his conversation. But he talks straight.

It didn't give me any the best o£ it, but that was all right. On the way back I had an attack of jitters. Or maybe I'd call it conscience if I were sure I had one. "Look, Juddy," I said. "It isn't too late to backtrack. Say the word and I'll tear up this scrap of paper and forget it." "What's on your mind now, Mom?" Juddy said. "It's this way. If this goes flooey, I've still got the Feederia. How about you? Have you got anything to fall back on?" She laughed, but it wasn't a pretty laugh. "More money than you ever thought of, Mom," she said. "If I want to fall in that direction." "What's the catch?" I said. "How would you get all this money?" "She looked at me, and then away. "That's it; how?" she said. "How would you think?" "I see," I said, though I wasn't too sure. "Then we play ball?" I said. "Yes; we play ball," she said. After the final wash-up that evening the two of us sat back and built our tourist castle in the air with towers and a moated grange. Before we were through we had 30 ivied cabins, a big central dining and dance hall with a giftie counter, a cigaret and soft drinkie shoppie, swindle boxes, jookeries and all the other nickel traps, a row of gas pumps, a raft in the stream with bathhouses for the summer trade, canoes for rent, and we'd worked up a banquet business with Chambers of Commerce, Rotaries and Kiwanises, with a sideline of Sunday school picnics, all through the country- tide. By midnight Judson and Baumer were a couple of millionaires. \Jf/"E rented a truck and ran in a " squad of backwoods homebuilders. Carpenters? They were magicians. Those hillbillies made some passes, and waved a hammer and a saw in the air instead of a wand, and the two rows of cabins came right up out of the earth, complete with plumbing, and all inside of three weeks. They were of unfinished timber off the place, wattled with asphalt; the kind of thing tourists call "picturesque" and shuck out an extra dollar for. The first cabin was rented before it was built. Loren Oliver took it, at $10 a week. Juddy was suspicious of the Doc. Where Tambay was concerned, she was jealous as a mother-cat. You couldn't tell her that Doc's being there was a University proposition, and if it wasn't him, it would be somebody else. To her, he was just a trespasser. Besides, Angel Todd had tried hard to sell her on the proposition that Doc was a Grade A rat. He didn't wholly succeed. But he did convince her that Doc was determined to flunk him out by fail- means or foul. "Build yoursen ^..., . ..^m,'' she said. "But not for me. Leave the old house by itself?" she said. "Why, Mom, it would wake up in the night and cry for me!" Economy was our watchword now. Every penny we could make or save wasn't going to be too much to give Tambay Tourist Camp its start. Well, I soon found out that my notions of economy and Juddy's were two different things. Just as the hillbillies were finishing up, I heard a gentle scraping under my window one morning. There was Juddy with a cloth bag and a trowel. "Now what?" I said. "Bulbs," she said. "Yeah?" I said. "I thought we were economizing." "They only cost five dollars and a half," she said. "And they'll be so pretty when they come out. I can't bear to have the house look so sad and neglected." "Forget the house, Juddy," I said. "The thing for us to do, before the work-gang leaves, is to dig a little deeper and build ourselves a double cabin to live in. Modern and comfortable. Eight hundred dollars, would do it." She opened her eyes, wide and surprised, at me. "Aren't you comfortable in Tambay Mansion, Mom?" she said. "No; nor you neither," I told her. "I am too," she said, "except when the wind comes from the north or the rain from the east." "Look," I said. "There's a dozen windows needing glass. The roof leaks. And a self-respecting sparrow wouldn't have our plumbing in his nest. Cabins are weatherproof." CO I paid off our hillbillies and they held a whoopee on white mule to celebrate the finish of the job — a swell job, too — and went back home, and Tambay Tourist Camp was set for business. Juddy went out that night with Angel. They didn't get in till 2 o'clock, and next day she seemed a little down; kind of bothered in her mind. "Mom," she said: "You told Angel I was your niece. Why?" "Just a stall," I said. "He knows you're not." "Was it because you thought I needed a guardian?" "I might have, then, I've changed my mind." "Maybe I do. But not as far as Angel is concerned." She stuck a bulb into the hole she'd scooped and smiled up at me. "I've been thinking I'd like to adopt you for an aunt or something." "That's a thought," I said. "But what do you knew about me? I might not even be respectable." "Are you?" she said. "Not that I care." "Now, I'll tell you, Juddy," I said. "There's just two kinds of people in the world, those that stay put, and those that keep mov- Necessity bred many an ingenious substitute for window drapes during those first blackouts, for silting with the lights out gets tiresome. Blankets were the first line of defense, some women even lineing them with gaily colored percale, to make them look prettier. One attic disgorged a plush piano eovre, which covered the living room windows nicely with a divertingly gay nineties touch. Families soon discovered that life could go on satisfactorily with only kitchen and bath room darkened. Social Activities Re-Organized People arc re-discovering their homes, to the distress of the neigh- orhood movies, which continue bus- less behind darkened marquees. Boys lubs and girls groups are meeting fternoons, to make games and pe- are craft work in which the whole amily may take pal. During the first jlnckouts people didn't try to do any- liing but hover over the radio, anc liscover from distant stations (loca jncs were off the ari) what was happening in thei own home town.

"I'll bet you do, Mom," she said. "As for taking you on, gals are no news to me. I've had my crack at the family line." Juddy opened her eyes wide at me. "Have you got children?" "One," I told her. "And I've taken more chances than that. But Carnie's strictly legal." "CarnieV" she said. "Is that her name?" "Her name is Carnival. We were in that line of business when .she was born.
