S. will be faced with a shortage of fats and oil. And with the acknowledged importance of peanut-oil, not only for its food value, but as a product included in the manufacturing of war material, there will be an insistent demand for greatly increased acreage planted to this product.

Some mills handling government orders are working the maximum 168- hour week right now. Of those averaging 100 hours a week, many maintain they can't do any better as things now stand. Some, for instance, find a shortage of skilled workers, and are trying to do a hurried training job. Others point out that since cotton mills employ mostly women, the protective laws of certain states, prohibiting women from night work, preclude the possibility of a night shift. Already eight out of the twelve states with such laws have modified their edicts to allow granting of night work permits to women in bona fide war industries, but that doesn't include lots of textile mills. Then there's the little question of power rationing—especially in the southeastern states—which curtails production to some extent. And lastly, the shortage of some vital chemicals necessary to the processing of cotton fabrics. Chlorine for bleaching is one such bottleneck. The net result seems to be that consumers will be able to get about everything they needed, though they'll pay from 20 to 35 per cent more for it. — SPECIAL — 5000 Large - Thirsty TOWEL (ENTERS Go on Sale THURSDAY Afternoon at 2 o'clock — AH New \ Choice 8< ea.

The Women of Today's World Miss McBride Is a Big-Wig Without a Hobby By FRANK CAREY AP Feature Service When the announcement was mndc that Miss Katharine E. McBride, 37, dean of Radcliffe College, had been named president of her alma mater, Bryn Mawr, thus becoming otic of the youngest college presidents in the country, a Now England newspaper curried ii nice story about her career —but inadvertently published a picture of someone else. Tile slip merely elicited a chuckle from this modest educator and psychologist who is surprised that newspapers can find time and space to write stories on a college president in the midst of war. She says she wishes she could be of more help to interviewers when they ask her about hobbies and activities unrelated to her work. Not » Hobbyist "I've never had an active hobby," she smiled, "and I had never wished for one until everyone began asking me about them." She hasn't played bridge in years, and while she enjoys a stage play, she hasn't been to the movies since she went to Radcliffe as clean in September, 1940. "There just hasn't been time," says the tall, slim, blue-eyed woman who wears her straight light-brown hair caught in a pug. She was wearing a mannish cut brown suit and a pink blouse.* Honor Graduate Born in Philadelphia not far from the college she will head in September, she was educated in private schools in Gormantown, and was graduated from Bryn Wawr with honors in 1925. She majored in English and psychology, and right after graduation was appointed part-time reader in psychology at her alma mater. While advancing to associate professor of education and psychology, she took graduate courses at Columbia, did pure scientific research work as a psychologist and neurologist, and collaborated on two books, one of which has become a standard textbook on "Aphasia," a speech disturbance that results from a brain injury. She holds bachelor of arts, master of arts and doctor of philosophy degrees. At Bryn Mawr her experience in education psychology made her an unofficial assistant to the dean, and it was this work that led naturally to her appointment as dean of Radcliffe. She plans no major innovations at Bryn Mawr where, she says, the "emphasis always has been on high scholarship." She will place the accent on what she calls "the individualizing of education"— that is, giving the students freedom to develop their own talents instead of having a set scheme for all. "In these days when we are faced TAMBAY GOLD By SAMUEL HOPKINS ADAMS Copyright, 1941. NBA Service Inc. Incorporated IN THE CABIN CHAPTER XXVII I was waiting on them, Juddy slipped across to the plane and pinched the revolver. She wasn't for letting Angel shoot some poor slob that might be perfectly innocent. They put off without noticing their loss. They hadn't been gone half an hour when Doc showed up at the Feederia. He was in his working clothes, and he looked white and grave. "Old Swoby is back," Doc said. "I've got him in the shelter." "Then everything's Jake," I said. "No. He's been shot." "Shot?" Juddy forgot her feud with Doc. "What—why—" "It isn't serious. Flesh wound. I've dressed his arm." "What have they got on him?" "He was found hiding in a barn near the place." "Hiding from the airplanes." "Of course. But could you get a mob to believe that? There's something else. The woman, before she died, muttered something about a man with a red head. Swoby had that infernal red cap of his on. When they found him, he ran." "What'll we do, Doc?" "I've telephoned the State Police." "Did you get 'em?" "No, they're all out on the hunt. I left word." I hustled across to the Feederia and brought back my good old forty-five. "Look," I said. "Give this to Old Swoby and head him for the Big Swamp. They won't find him there. Not tonight. Lord! What's that?" But I'd heard that lost-soul wailing before. "Bloodhounds," he said. "The swamp is hopeless." He turned to Juddy. "Is there a bar to the door of the log shed in your back yard?" "Yes." "My God, Doc!" I said. "Are .you crazy? You can't stand 'em off there." "Have you got any better plan?" "No. But—" "You don't expect me to give Swoby up, surely." "I'd rather have him killed than you." "We're wasting time," he said. Juddy spoke up, kind of desperate. "Yes, we're wasting time. Don't you see you can't do anything with him?" She didn't look at Doc. I think sho was afraid to. "Come, Swoby," he called. Swoby came out. He stared from one to th« other of us and then said something that made me almost cry. "Why must they kill me?" he said. "This is not my country." "You must do what Mr. Oliver tells you," Juddy said to him. Something shoved against my leg. It was Dolf. "Okay, boy," I said. "Trail along. You like trouble." * * * TW"E all went across the road to " make ready. Doc sized up the log cabin and the lay of the land around it. He had his pistol. I had my old forty-five whanger. Juddy's twelve-gauge stood in the hall corner. I sneaked it and a box of shells and gave the lot to Old Swoby who'd been in the war and knew a gun when he saw it. Juddy had hung on to the gat she swiped from Hendy's plane. "They might try to burn us out." Doc said. "We'd better roll that rain, barrel in. We'll need buckets." That guy thought of everything. While Juddy and I were getting out the buckets for water the sound of the dogs got nearer and more mournful. They were baying at the ford where Old Swoby waded the stream. That didn't give us too much time. Doc spoke up, quiet and business like. "This is the plan. When they come, I shall try to get a hearing. I don't want to hurt anyone. But I do want them to believe that we're prepared to shoot if necessary. Now you two go back to the mansion and keep after the troopers." "And leave you here?" Juddy said. "This is no time to argue," he said. "Go back." Juddy didn't argue. She just walked into the shack. I trailed. Dolf followed me. "For God's sake, Juddy!" Her voice 'shook, too, when she spoke. "I'm not afraid. At least, not very." "Mom," he said. "Mom! Get her out!" "Don't start anything Doc," I warned him. "I was base of a Jiving pyramid once. You can't shove me around. And I won't let you shove Juddy. We're staying." "They come now," Old Swoby said. The hounds were yelling for blood; the mob, too. The front line of the chase straggled into the yard. Doc pushed the big door shut and slipped the bar. Old Swoby took his place at the rear window with Juddy's gun. It all looked to me like bad trouble. Doc stood by the small front window next the d6or. "Everybody quiet, please," he said. "I'll do the talking." * * * TIE stuck his pistol through the window and fired a shot in the air. A car swung into the grounds. By its lights I could see the advance guard taking cover in the thickets. Bixie Groff and a bunch of his townies were behind one clump. "Don't come any further," Doc said. You'd have thought he was in his classroom. Quiet authority; that was his pitch. Some bird behind a live oak called out, "Give the fella up, Prof. We got nothing against you." "Anybody interferes, they're right liable to get hurled." Groff, with a couple of his pals, was edging over to the left. A bullet plunked into the log above my head. Some more followed. They were firing high. The car lights were switched off now, but there was enough moon so we could see a man moving forward alone. "Stop that shooting," he said. "Maurie Sears," Juddy said. "Quiet!" Doc snapped at her. "Oliver!" Sears called. "Can I have a word with you?" "Certainly." He walked up to the door. Through my chink between the logs, I could see his face, stern and set. "You might as well give him up Oliver." "So that you and your friends can lynch him?" "I'll never have a hand ID another lynching. Not at Tambay." (Well, I knew why that was.) Doc said: "Will you guarantee to deliver him safely to jail?" "I can't guarantee anything. But I'll do my best." "I believe that, Sears. But I don't believe it would be good enough." "There isn't much time," Maurie Sears said. "As your friend, Oliver, I beg you to turn the man over to me." Doc seemed to be thinking about it, for he didn't say anything for a few seconds. Then, "That's your best advice?" "It is." "Would you do it in my place?" "The case is differ—" "Would you do it in my place, Sears?" "No." "I thought not. But you expect me to?" "No." "Thank you, Sears. Neither will I." (To Be Continued) ONCUE SArA BONOS foR DEFENSE, UTTLE BEAVE.R— * AND THAT WILL OFFER US (AOR.S.

Dangers of Homesickness Don't Send Your Children Away From Their Homes By DOROTHY ROE AP Feature Service Writer If you live in an American coastal city, don't feel that you must send your children away at the first air raid alarm. This is the advice of Mrs. Siclonie M. Gruenberg, director of the Child Study Association, to parents who wish to protect their children from the mental and physical hazards ot modern war. Separation from their parents often is more harmful to children than the actual experience of an air raid, welfare workers have found from observing thousands of children in England, Spain, France, Poland Czechoslovakia, Holland and Belgium. As a rule, children suffer very little nervous shock from air raids, doctors report. Aside from the danger svitli the threat of forces which discount the importance of the individual, this is most important," she believes. "The individual seems to be worth more if well trained. And he's better trained if he's in the right field." of physical injury, the child of a sane and normal family should suffer no ill effects in wartime. Pro-school children and those of adolescent age are most easily influenced by war psychology, say child care specialist. The very young child may be frightened by new noises and n sense of tension in the family, unless his parents are careful to keep his surroundings normal, his attention diverted by stories, music or games. The older child often wants to run away and join the army or work in a munitions factory as a dramatic patriotic gesture. Tlic best cure is to give him a job to do at home. The first loiter or the first two loiters of radio call signals indicate the nationality of the nation.
