.",*-' fJeneral Georges Dunbar Will Play Is French Leader Verger On Friday • Germans Before, Commander on Western Front By WILLIAM McGAFFlN V AJ* Feature Service Writer • PARIS — Drop into a Normancsque chateau "somewhere behind the Magi- ,1»t line" and you would sec a so- ber-visaged. battle-scarred veteran of many wars working with quiet efficiency in a room full of maps. "< This man is General Alphonse Joseph jGeorgcs. He is running the campaign ? Ior Uamelin on the Western tront. > General Georges was middle-aged .Vhen he fought Germany before. He celebrated his sixty-fourth birthday ' a fortnight before the present conflict began. His hair, in pompadour style, has turned white in the intervening yenrs. The lines have deepened in his rather full face, characterized by kindly eyes and a firm Strong mouth. | 'Ihe thing that strikes you about the man is his dead seriousness. There 4re none of the usual trival human interest anecdotes recounted about him Instead they will tell you such things as how he was gravely wounded at "ihe start of the war in 1914 and came back to make a brilliant record as a member of Foch's staff. I In 1915 General Georges became famous as an administrator. In this phase of his career he was associated jvith two names which have a fami- lair ring today. 5 He was military chief in the war department when it was headed by Andre Maginot — who started the famous line of fortifications. i He was chief administrator of the Ruhr when the French troops occupied that rich German industrial region after the war. Today Georges' troops arc taking off from the Maginot line and are worrying the Ruhr through pressure on the Saar area immediately adjourning it. i Four more times during the present century will there be dates with all pdd, unduplicated figures: 1953, 1957, 1973 and 1975. Then there will be a period of 1182 years before it again Occurs.

"Won't be able to see you at all this week," Keith told Joan in class Monday. "Slocum is going absolutely punch-nutty. Honest, the poor guy is going around muttering to himself. Why, his wife has forbidden him to drive the car because he can't get his mind off football. She's afraid he'll wrap himself around a tree while trying to dope out a new play." Keith shook his head dolefully. "He's got us eating, thinking and dreaming football. And that means there'll be no homecoming dance for us Friday night. We thought maybe the Old Man would let us show up for a half hour or so but he's afraid some second string tackle will break an ankle shagging. So," he sighed, "we don't stir out of the Country Club." "Gee," she said. "Too bad. We could have had fun." "I can get one of the boys to take you . . ."he offered. "Nope, that's out. No more pinch-hitting." » * * TTOMECOMING activities really got under way Friday. Young grads, old grads—they poured back for two days of riotous reminiscence. They descended upon the university district and really took over. Joan met so-and-so from '32 and some others from '34, And then there was a flock of matronly Alpha Nus from '24 and '25 who stopped in with paunchy, ssmi- Irald husbands. "Something for us to look forward to," Elaine cracked. AH but a handful of girls had dates for the dance that night in the gym. Kay Granger, done up in black marquisette, was prepared to reign in all her queenly glory. "To put it in simple words," said Joan, sweeping a glance over her, "you're the nuts." "Did you ever stop to think that you might have been standing here instead of me had you so desired?" Kay asked softly. Jean pushed her out of the room. "G'wan, get going befort I start bawling. I'm not going to your little .party, y'know. And besides, Bob Lake has been waiting for you for 15 minutes." Bob Lake, as chairman of the homecoming committee, was Kay's escort for the dance, and the game next day. He was a Delta Rho fvom Memphis and had a cute southern drawl. "Have fun," said Joan as they went out the door. * » « SATURDAY was crisp and golden, not only from the bright November sun but from thousands of mums that were in evidence. Sitting in the stands, Joan, Carol and the others felt a glow of pride as they witnessed the pro- game ceremonies. A motorcade of cars rolled around the running track and came to a stop before a portable microphone. That was when Kay took over. She greeted the returning grads and enthusiastically kissed the rival captains good luck as a battery of photographers wont to work. Then as an afterthought Kay ran over and gave Barney Hughes an extra smack for gooc measure and the crowd roared, "Cute, eh?" Elaine giggled. The more serious business a hand wasn't quite so cute. Vandy although the underdog, was loaded for bear. Even though th southerners were crippled by injuries they put up a terrific battle until they ran out of competen reserves in the last half. Midway in the third quarter skipping lightly behind Dan Web ber, who rode the Vanderbilt end all the way out of the play, Keith went down to the 6-yard line on ; 33-yard jaunt. Tony Mangan rk bucked it over in two plays. :ew minutes later Johnny Whit leaved one straight down the mid die. Barney took it on the. dea run, picked up a couple of inter ferers and went over standing up * * * D MAN SLOCUM ruled wit an iron hand before any gart but he always let up after it was over. The Gammas celebrated the week-end with an informal dance at the house, and this time Joan didn't miss. Keith kissed her lightly In the car when he called for her and she gave him a hug. "Nice going today, Rhodes. We really poured it onto them, didn't we?" "Yeah, once we got started." And then: "Say, it's remarkable the way you've taken to the ver- acular—'poured it on them,' and tiff like that," She laughed. "Don't look now, ut I'm getting an awful big kick .it of this football season. And o one's pulling for an undefeated ear more than I am—and no one /ants Tech to go to the Rose Bowl iore than I do." "How about me making All- merica," he prompted. "That goes without saying, you ope," she said, snuggling up closo .ist as they arrived at the Gamma ouse. * * * T was a swell dance. Gangs of people were there and completa ntroductions were impossible. But no deliberately managed an in- •oduction to Dan Webber's date, a weet Pi •. Gam named I Eileen Campbell. . She spent a casual five minutes vith Eileen while Ihey were rc- lairing their makeup and it didn't ake much more thtm that to ad- nirc Dan's taste, ' Eileen, Joan new, was as sweet as they come. "Wasn't Dan swell today?" Eileen enthused. "I was sitting' ight below the press box and I icard one sports writer tell anther that he had never seen one man make so many tackles In a single game." Joan straightened her corsago on her shoulder. They were gardenias, her favorites. "He sure ivas," she agreed without looking up. And then she went out to join Keith on the dance floor.. It's suddenly occurred to me," Keith whispered in her ear, "that I'm dancing with the most beautiful girl in the house." You're not being very gallant," she replied. "Is that all the territory you can take in?" She foil the pressure of his hand. "I see by the papers that we have a full moon tonight," he said. "I don't believe what I read in the papers," she whispered. "Fine.- Then let's go out and see for ourselves. You're riijht about not trusting the papers." They strolled out on the terrace and continued out to the garden in back. "There it is. Take a look. Big as a basketball." She looked up and he took her in his arms and kissed her—hard. He kissed her again and held it for a long moment. "Hey," she gaspod. "Civo me McCaskill Mrs. Graydon Anthony and daugh- er Bonnie Marie,.were Hope visitors Vednesday afternoon.

(To Be Continued) Bruce Catton Says: New Dealers Draft New 'Ever Normal Business' Scheme - which By BRUCE CATTON NBA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON — A. half-billion-dol)ar government corporation would try to cushion the sharp swings of boom and depression by buying industrial products in bad times and selling them in good timc^ is projected in a far-reaching proposal now being formulated by top New Deal planners. In substance, the idea is simply an® tidaptatiin to industr^ of Henry Wallace's "ever-normal granary" scheme. It has not yet got into the public dis- ion service arc already being taken under the general supervision of Richrd Gilbert, head of the Division of ndustrial Economics of the Depart- ncnt pf Commerce. Mr. Gilbert sees this as the mosl nportant part of the entire job, and s now keeping a day-tiday check n production, consumption and price rends. cussion stage, but it will probably be ready for presentation to Congress sometime .next spring—perhaps early in the winter, if there is a business recession. W;i; Booms Industrial ndex The Federal Reserve Board's index of industrial production stood at 101 for January of this year, and ran a little under 100 for the first nine months. Then, when the European war began, it jumped now, on unofficial estimates, it stands between 118 and 120. But it isn't war demand that caused the boom, say Commerce Department experts; it was simply fear of a war-created price rise. Inventories have been built uy to forestall such a price rise, and have gone up much faster than consumption. If the process continues, and if neither an export trade boom, a sharp increase in domestic consumption nor a boost in capital expenditures by business develops, there will be an equally sudden slump. So Ihi.s plan for an adaption of the over-normal granary is taking shape. Under the plan there would be set by a government corporation, backed by at least half a billion of resources — possibly more. slump developed, this corp- oration would buy heavily of industrial materials—both crude products, such as ores, non-ferous metals and the like, and semi-manufactured goods. Its purchases (to which army and navy purchases would be corelated) would serve to cushion the slump. Later, when another boom began the corporation would sell the materials it had bought. This, as the planners see it, would check rising prices. Manufacturers would know tha they did not need to build up their inventories ahead of a wave of rising prices, and hence increased inclustr ial activity would be keyed mor closely to actual consumption—which in turn, woukl make the prospect of another slump later on more re mote. May Expand on "Stamp Plan" In itself, say the authors of the pirn this would not be enough—unlcs there was simultaneous action b the government to stimulate publi consumption when a slump set it. That would mean more spending along the traditional lines—as via the WPA. It is also suggested that the stamp plan by which surplus agricultural goods, so that surplus shorts and shoes as well as tomatoes and apples Hedgehogs destroy cockrochcs anc icetles. above wrists. Rub a little hand cream or olive oil into your cuticles once or twice a week. Th<-n your cuticle won't be so likely to break. Use a base under that new nail polish.

Lastly, the exponents of the say there must be much more thorough colection and dissemination by the 'overnment of wcek-by-weck developments in regard .to the inventory situation. As things stand, they say, the business man has no way of finding out from day to day just what current inventory developments are; they hope that the government can provide statistics so that at any time, in any line of business, in any part of the country, a business man may know exactly what the situation is.
