Pnrfy Giving Is on the Wane Hope has settled into n very quiet routine socially with only spasmodic periods, or days, of party-giving and then not on n very large scale. The women are too busy with other things. Only the clubs are left to save the days socially. Since everyone has been trying to get special assignments for Red Cross work after the first news of war, parties, arc of secondary consideration, but always are welcome when they are given. America is at war.

We are nil urged to be generous and to work for there is plenty to be given and to do. If you do not have time to train for Nurse's Aide, Staff Assistance, Home Service, Gray Lady, Canteen or Motor Corps, you can knit, sew, or make surgical dressings. As leadership comes from within, not from an insignia, don't worry whether or not you have a badge denoting your particular job. Did you know that women are among our foremost word • makers? I use as my authority Dr. Charles E. Funk, the famed lexicographer, who recently stated that women coin more words than any other group. Among the new words appearing in the most recent editions of the dictionaries will be "brunch," "hiiir-do", "supermarket", "taupe," "lipstick," "beauli- tion", "dirndl" and "glassed." 'Brunch' is a combination breakfast and luncheon, while "hair-do" and "supermarket" ire self-explanatory. Fashion experts will tell you that "taupe" is a new grey-purple shnde. "Lipstick" and "beautician" are natural outgrowths, and "dirndl" is a fashion style. Members of the younger generation are responsible for the following 1942 additions: "goon", "jam session", "jive", "pantywaist", "wacky", and "zombie". "Strip tease" will also .be a legimitate phrase when the new dictionaries are published. So, you see, the lexicographers do not 'put" words into the dictionary. The people do.

BALESTIEK CHAPTER XIX «T OOK, Doc," I said, thinking about the trouble with Maurie. "This is a rough world we're living in. You and I are going to have n little target practice out back." Well, Doc was a natural with a pistol. In a week he could nick n four-bit piece at 30 yards. Angel wasn't around so much, these days. After the Harstrom slump, the team settled down to work and showed something. The betting on the Balestier game went back to evens, but I had my little fifty down at five to seven, and Angel got four hundred for Juddy's three. Reservations at Tambay Camp began coming in early for the week-end of the big game. Then one morning a couple of young fellows with rods and chains came in and ordered eggs, cakes and sausage. "What goes on, boys?" I asked, after I'd served them. "State survey. The new bridge." "What d'you mean, the new bridge? That's to cross half a mile downstream." "Nothing's settled," one of them said. "But there's some talk that this would be a better place." Curtains for Tambay. That's what it meant, if true. I could smell a smell of Mowry about this. With only a week to go before the Balestier game, a pair of barriers sprouted right up out of the earth overnight, a mile on each side of us, and detoured our traffic. "Road Closed for Temporary Repairs." That was the reading matter. Repairs, my foot! I got the ax and tossed those barriers into the ditch. Then they got me and toused me into Brandon jail. After a while Sheriff Mowry came around and passed me out. "I wouldn't have had this happen for a million dollars, ma'am," he said, solemn as a hoot-owl. "Is that your price now?" I TUDDY was having her troubles, " too. She showed me a letter rum Angel. Sweetness: This is tough. I will not be seeing you again till after the game. It can't be helped. They have got me income- you-know-diado. Don't worry. I love you and \vc are going to lick them. I'm all for you. Angel. Wat Smith furnished the answer vhen he showed up that evening. "Can you find Angel for me, Wat?" "Not at the moment." "I want to see him. It's important." "So's the Balestier game." "But why can't I see Angel?" "You've got a mean, suspicious lature. What should there be wrong?" "Wat, if you're going to be that way, I shall drive over and go to n's room and sit there till I see lim." "Thereby getting him fired. There's a good old Baptist rule about wild women in the dorms." :ie sized up Juddy's chin which was moving forward. "Well, what do you think is wrong?" "I don't know. lie wrote me not to worry. That's what wor- said. "You've gone up. could talk." But we "You'll always find me reasonable. 1 Well, I wouldn't say but whal a hundred dollars was reasonable enough for calling ofT the detoui till after the big game. But thai was no guarantee that eventually the bridge wouldn't put us out of business. I could guess Mowry's price for that; the 25 per cent cu' of the mining rights. I'd found out that the head of the Highways Department was his brother-in- law. He certainty held good cards "A-plus in logic. Did he ever mention a man from Miami to you?" "The gambler?" "Right. He's back. Raised the ante to fifteen hundred. Angel took a poke at him." "I'm glad he did. What's wrong with that?" "Nothing. Nothing at all. Commendable but unsafe. Someone took a potshot at Angel when he was coining back from somewhere the other night." "Angel's been shot?" "Calm down, maiden. Shot at. Maybe not even at; maybe just toward. I think they're trying to get his nerve. A couple of black- hand letters have 'come to him. So Coach Harley isn't taking any chances on his prize package. Now, you tell me something. What fell on Oliver at Tambay, that night in vacation time?" "He was mooning around in the dark and fell down — " "And Jill came tumbling after, I've heard that one, too." "Then why ask me?" "In the futile hope of eliciting some facts." * * * • A NGEL had got us swell seats on the 50-yard line, with a •**• bunch of the Rogues. Of course I'd no business going. But ; couldn't resist that game. Doc Oliver arrived and sat riglv below us. There was the usual ot of chitchat passing around about the game; the Balestier boys vere out for. manhandling, may- lem, and murder; they were going o make hash of Angel Todd; two men were assigned to him—three —four. Everybody had something o say about Scallinger, the Bale- tier left tackle. "Is that the one that plays opposite Angel?" Juddy asked. Not opposite, my beautiful," lags Owen said, "but unpleasantly lear. Our pride, our joy, our icamish boy is in for a busy after- ioon." When the visiting team came out, they looked like bad news :o me. Juddy was as excited as a ichoolgirl. That first quarter was a darb. ''m no sports reporter, and any- .vay, things happened so fast I could hardly keep up with them. Most of the play was on our side of the field and Man-Mountain Scallinger was doing his share of t. It worrie 1 Juddy.^ I tapped Loren Oliver on the shoulder. "Our young lady, here, sn't satisfied with the way things are going," I said. "What's wrong?" Doc said. "Oh, Todd? He's taking good care of limself." Juddy got red. "D'you mean lie's shirking?" she said. "I think ;hat's a rotten thing to say." : I didn't say it," Doc pointed out to her. "You haven't seen many gains around his end, have you? On defense, they're keevjing an extra man on him." Nobody scored that quarter. It looked like the same thing in the next until toward the end. Then Angel, who took a pass and had just about got into the clear, was tackled so hard by Scallinger that he lay there, out. The Welliver stands began to yell for blood. "Dirty! Dirty! Run him off the field. Take him out!" Juddy was in the chorus, hammering the nearest object in front of her, which happened to be Doc Oliver's back. "What's the matter now?" he said. "Kill him!" Juddy yipped. "He did it on purpose. Kill him!" "Of course he did it on purpose," Doc said. "It was a perfectly fair tackle." I thought Juddy was going to choke. They took Angel off. Three minutes later Balestier got their touchdown on a crossbuck, and kicked the goal. I heard a moan back of me. It was Van Clark. "There goes our ball game," he said. "There goes my fifty," I said. Doc said, "This game isn't over yet." (To Be Continued) Seek Shipyard Workers Here California Company Would Train Local Men Library Notes Are you interested in learning more about your southern neighbors? Now the American people's interest has turned to the countries South of the United States. Several of the best books about Latin America have been added this week to the shelves of the Hempstead County Library. "Meet the South American" by Carl Crow withdrawings by Oscar Ogg is the colorful life of twenty countries as seen through the eyes of a trained observer. Discusses the problem of Nazi propaganda, describes some of the industries end comments on the export situation as it affects the United States, touches on religion, education, transportation, politics, social conventions, and a score of other .opics. Brazil; land of the future by Stefan iweig is the account of six months' visit of the author to Brazil in 1940. A brief sketch of the history, economy, and culture of Brazil consumes more than half the book, which closes with the author's impressions of modern Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, and Bahia. The Pageant of South America History" by Anne Merriman Peck begins with the ancient civilization of primitive South America to our present-day dream of a'Pan-America. Vivid, compact and accurate, the flow of the story is fascinating and the pictures painted are warm and .charged with color. "Brazil in capitals" by Vera Kelsey pictures these cities which are the sum of the life and interest in Brazil today—historical, economic, political, cultural, social. Contrary to popular opinion, Rio de Janeiro is not typical of life in Brazil any more than New York City is typical of life in the United States. Brazil has not one capital city but many, forming a golden necklace laong her 5000 mile coast. "Inside Latin America" by John Gunther is todays best seller. From Mexico through Central nd South America, John Gunther explains the policies, problems, leaders, peoples of all the twenty Latin-American countries, and how each affects the world and ourselves.

Boger will be in Hope for several days for the purpose of selecting men who can qualify for training in shipyard work. About 220 men have qualified from Arkansas and Texas recently and are now holding down jobs in west coast shipyards. Applicants must be American citizens, white, ages from 18 to 60, mechanically inclined, in fairly good health and not 'addicted to drinking. Experience is not necessary. Accepted men must finance themselves through the six weeks of training necessary to enable them to go to work immediately, starting at $1.12 per hour. "With billions of dollars of government contracts, the shipbuilding industry offers workers not only steady employment for many years to come, but affords unlimited opportunities for quick advancement. Because of the acute shortage of skilled men in all phases of shipyard work, ambitious employes may take additional training in mechanics, drafting, engineering, etc., without cost to prepare themselves for promotion," Swift said. Swift, direct representative of the California Welding Institute, the National Schools, and Shipyards Training Schools, all of Los Angeles, may be reached at Barlow Hotel, Monday and Tuesday only at 9 a. m., noon, 3 p. m. and 7:30 p. m.
