"The Timeless U-ind" |, y Eleanor Dark Is New Book at Library "j "The Timeless Land" a recent selection of the Book-of-the-Month Club is a richly colorful story of the first five years of English settlement in Australia, and of the black natives whose life and culture and natural .. gaiety were so cruelly destroyed in ' that short time. The story is a dramatic one, here eloquently told. The few boa (loads of convicts who land in Sydney Harbor in 1788 make poor pioneer stock indeed. That they survive at all is due to the cour- !"_• age and wisdom of their Captain Phillip. His story is told here, as is that of a fictional character, Andrew Prentice, n red-headed convict who escapes, and flourishes with his native wife in the wilds, while his , countrymes back at the settlement 1 are near starvation. Parallel to the slow establishment of the white colony runs the sad history of the black men's demoralization, personified in Bennilong, an historical figure and leader in his Night club in Texarkana and was attended by Miss Hattie Anne Feild and Mr. Woodall, Senator and Mrs. James Pilkinton, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Richardson, Mr. and Mrs. George Ware Miss Claudia Whitworth and Ben Norwood, Miss Evelyn Shofhous- er and Dr. A.

With many kinds of clothing and textiles becoming limited because of the National Defense Program, there is need today for taking good care of clothing on hand, Miss Fletcher, County home demonstration agent, advises Hempstead County homemakers. The first step in taking care of clothing intelligently, Miss Fletcher says, is knowing what the fabric is made of, since, methods of cleaning, pressing, removing spots and storing vary according to the fibers in a garment. Other important considerations in taking care of clothing are knowing whether the color in a material is fast PAGE TH»M', Young America and the War Best Perscription Is to Keep Them Busy By DOROTHY ROE AP Feature Service Writer Keep them busy. That's the best prescription for the guidance of children in wartime, leading child psychologists now agree. American parents, apprehensive as to the effect of the present war psychology on their children, may take comfort in the experience of English fathers and mothers, who have found that little Johnny and Mary often weather the war alarms more calmly than their parents. "Children can stand a lot more than you might think," says Mrs. Sidonie M. Gruenberg, director of the Child Study Association of America, now planning a series fo war instruction classes for parents. "Too much protection is almost worse than too little. "Tho best plan is to encourage children to continue the daily pattern of their lives with as little change as possible. Don't alarm them with constant discussion of the war and its dangers. But on the other hand don't exclude them from any discussion of the war. Teach them to take it in their stride." Mrs. Gruenberg believes that the attitude of children toward war and its dangers depends entirely-on the parents. If father nnd mother remain calm in the midst of rumors and alarms, the children will feel a sense , of security. If, however, parents be- '. come hysterical, the children are likely to follow suit. Older children may be given certain responsibilities—things to do in case of an air raid. Younger children may be taught to play war games, so that the real thing, if and when it comes, will not be a shock.

You would find strange, nameless desires — secret compulsions — loves and hates, and yearnings beyond belief ... A man's mind is bared in "Dr. Jelcell and Mr. Hyde"- You do see all of these things, in a truly dramatic picture — performed to perfection by u magnificent star cast. * SPENCER TRACY * in "DR. JEKYLL and MR. HYDE" With INGRIP BERGMAN — LANA TURNER DOC KNOWS FOOTBALL CHAPTER XX BETWEEN the halves an assistant coach came up to Doc and asked if he would talk with coach in the dressing room. "What's all that about?" Juddy wanted to know. "Coach probably wants his slant on the game," Van said. "Why should he?" "Because Oliver knows plenty football. He invented the split tandem when he was in college." Juddy looked as if she didn't take any stock in it. "What's the split tandem?" she said. "It's a chess opening," I told her. Doc came back with the news that Angel was all right and would start the next quarter. It was a seesaw with no 'advantage for maybe 10 minutes. Then, with our side having the ball, there was a complicated, hidden-ball play with Angel way out like a pass-receiver, and then sprinting across to block for Ramsdell who came down from nowhere and was pretty well in the clear. Big Scallinger was on the job, and turned him, and just then Angel dived plum into Scal- linger's belly as another blocker took him on the side. This time he was the one that didn't get up. Scallinger was a picture. His knees were wobbling, and you couldn't see his features for mud. Angel was dabbing at it to clear it away. At least that's what it looked like from the stands. I thought I saw something else, though, that I hoped the umpire didn't see. All of a sudden the big gorilla jerked away and made a wild swing at Angel. Angel ducked and grinned at him and patted him on the back. They took Scallinger out, fighting, while the Welliver crowd was yelling for his blood again. He looked as if he was crying, too. Van Clark, next to me, had his field-glasses on the mix-up. 1 whispered to him; "Did you see what I saw then?" "Yes," he said. "Forget it." While this was going on, Ramsdell was strolling across the line like a schoolmarm out for a walk. Maybe it came too easy for him. His kick for the extra point was a mile wide—and he hadn't missed twice before in the whole season. * * * A NGEL played like three men, ^*- after that. But everytime the boys were on their way a fumble or a penalty set them back. The count was still against us when the game went into the final quarter. It looked lousy. Then, with only two and a half minutes to go, and our fourth down, we had an outside chance for a drop kick. The stands were yelling for Angel Todd. But a tow-headed sophomore trotted out, cool as a hog on ice, and put the ball square between the posts and the game was in the bag. Doc Oliver turned around to us with that pleasant, sort of impersonal smile of his. "Well, what did you think of it?" For someone that had just cleaned up a niee {«le, Juddy was no ray of sunshine. "I wanted Angel to have more chance," she said. "Say, gal!" Van Clark leaned across to her. "The business of a linesman, in case you haven't been told, is to outplay the other guy." "Of course. But—" "Angel outplayed two opponents half the time and kept three plenty busy at odd moments. Isn't that right, Mr. Oliver?" The Doc nodded. "I haven't seen better end play since Brud Holland. There's a professional scout from the Magnates here. Todd is likely to hear from him." We all went over to Rogues Hall for a drink. There we ran into the Magnates' representative. "The big boy, here, sure did a job on that truckhorse of a tackle," he said, patting Angel on the shoulder. "I thought it was rotten, the way he tried to hit Angel when Angel was trying to help him," Juddy said. "Help him, huh?" The scout gave a hoot. "I'd hate to have anyone help me that way. Why, he rubbed enough dirt into that Tarzan's eyes to load a dumpcart." "Angel! You didn't!" "Why, Juddy," he said "he'd have got me if I hadn't got him." "You mean he tried to foul you?" Angel laughed. "What's a foul when the ump isn't looking! Be "O. K., if that's the way you feel about it," he said. "I'll *jog into town and get myself a snoot- full of celebration." We didn't see him for several days. I totted up the accounts for the week-end. We'd taken in close to three hundred and seventy-five dollars. Besides, there was Juddy's four hundred, and my fifty on the game. Again I was singing at my work. Juddy wasn't. She felt bad about Angel when he didn't show up. sensible, sweetness, had to put him out." Somebody "Well, I think it's rotten," Juddy said. "It takes all the fun out of winning my bet." Angel put on his coaxing way. "Come on, honeybunch," he said. "Don't go prissy on me. Let's just the two of us go out to dinner somewhere." "No; I don't want to, Angel," she said. "I'm going to Tambay." Instead of taking it on the smile, as I expected he would, Angel got cocky. Could you blame Mm for feeling his oats? was shy another regular. Maurie Sears wasn't coining around any more. It got me to thinking. All his friends laid off him about the mix-up at the Rice Club. But there was a bunch of small-town rats that hung around the corners, and I heard they'd taken to sniggering and passing remarks when Maurie went past. One of 'em was a big loafer named Bixie Groff. Bixie thought it would be smart to take a crack at a swell like Maurie Sears who, generally speaking, wouldn't so much as spit downwind in his direction. He braced him one morning as Maurie was going past with a hunting crop in his hand he was taking to the repair shop. "Hey, Searsy!" Being funny, of course. That kind of scum don't make themselves folksy with Mauries and Searses and Rantouls. "What did you call me?" he said. "Mister Sears, to you. Got your gun back from that Yankee?" Maurie moved toward him, and he backed up. "Don't you hit me," he said. His hand went to his belt, but he didn't get far enough to do any harm. The hunting crop cracked down on his wrist, and the knife rolled into the gutter. None of the bunch was laughing now. Bixie was mouthing over his fingers. "Look at his broken?" hand. Is it Bantry examined it. "It looks right queer, Mr. Seal's." "Take him to Dr. Starrow. Tell the doctor the bill is to come to me. Has anyone else anything to say?" That served notice on Leverton that Maurie Sears wasn't safe to fool with. The bad part of it was, though, that it started the talk up aguin. If I heard it once, I heard it twenty times from talky customers that it was only a question of time when Sears would get lickered up and go on the warpath of honor. (To Be Continued) terial. This information should be obtained from labels, clerks, and store buyers when the purchase is made. Most important step, however, in taking care of clothing is the cleaning or laundering of the. garment. Pointing out that the proper method of cleaning a garment varies with the fibers in the fabric, Miss Fletcher, gives the following directions foi cleaning wool, rayon, and cotton as recommended by Miss Sue Marshal of the University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. The right way to wash wool is to use warm, soft water and mild soap. Squeeze suds through cloth—don't rub. Dry in a warm place, but riot near a fire or in direct sunlight. Stretch knit garments into shape while they are damp and lay them out flat to dry. Pi-ess other wool garments while they are still damp with a medium-hot iron and a pressing cloth. Rough handling while it is wet, harsh soap, sudden extremes of temperatures in washing wale ror drying cause a wool garment to become boardy. For washable rayons, heavy lukewarm suds of neutral soaps should be used. Do not rub, but handle them with particular care while they are wet. Rinse in water the same temperature of the wash water. Iron with a modeately warm iron. For acetate rayons, keep the temperature even lower. It is a good idea to try the iron first on the back part of a hem or a seam to make sure it is not so hot it will melt the rayon. The sensible way t oclean most cottons is to wash them. Colored options need to be colorfast both to washing and to light if they are to be satisfactory for long wear. Since the present price of eggs and the need for greater production in the Farm Defense Program will probably increase the demand for baby chicks for the coming season, prospective buyers of chicks should place their orders soon so that they may be certain of getting early hatched chicks, says Miss Fletcher, county home demonstration agent. The best time for hatching chicks, Miss Fletcher says, will, of course, vary with the.breed of chickens and the purpose for which they are grown. In this regard, S. A. Moore of the University of Arkansas College of Agriculture, recommends that broilers be hatched before April and that, of the chicks hatched for egg production, White leghorns hatched in April and other breeds a month earlier. Stressing the fact that broilers should be placed on the market early if they are to bring the best prices, the Extension poultry specialist points out that broilers hatched after the first of April usually sell for lower prices than those hatched earlier. As for chicks grown for egg production, these shoud be hatched with the view of bringing them into production at a season when egg prices are highest, Moore says. Pullets maturing in September or early October are usually the most profitable. Since White Leghorns and similar breeds mature more rapidly than such breeds as Rocks, Reds, and Wyandottes, the Leghorns may be hatched later. Leghorns hatched in April, and other breeds hatched a month earlier should reach maturity about the proper time. Birds hatched much earlier than this are apt to molt in the fall and the advantage of early hatching will be lost, the Extension specialist says. barracks. The back lots, some of their 100 or more acres, have paved streets power, water and sewer lines. There are garages and machine shops and plenty of buildings which coulc be conveted into kitchens, laundries and hospitals. There are hundreds o: excellent offices, of course, and everything is connected by exceptionally fine communication lines. No Durbin Peace Reports that Deanna Durbin anc Universal are making peace, and that she'll star in "Boy Meets Baby" with Bob Cummings, are just wishful thinking on the part of the studio . .

The latter picture gave Brenda Marshall her big chance, and now Miss Marshall has refused to play in "Escape From Crime," which brings opportunity to Irene Manning.

The other morning I found him trimming the hedge with a machine gun." After testing reactions of preview audiences, Warners provided a happy ending for "Kings Row." The response cards said, "We don't care whether it's like the book: we just want it to end right." . . It's said that Warners bought "Aloha Means Goodbye" because a bigwig liked the title.
