HOLLYWOOD-A little blond mo-® vie siren who's built along the fashionable lines of anemia and mal- nutrilution, took an hour's leave from her studio the other afternoon to offer a pint of blood to the Red Cross. She came back pouting they not only had turned her down but had suggested that she herself needed a transfusion. "They claimed," she explained, "that I haven't got enough red corporals." The Red Cross blood bank is doing very well in Hollywood, though, under the urgings of Chairman Cecil DeMille. At this writing more than 400 pints have been promised by Paramount employes, and other studios are responding almost as generously. Workmen and technicians are most often accepted as donors, but cuties usually are found fit in spite of their diets. The forthcoming intravenous infusion of glamour-serum into the Army offers some interesting speculation: Will our soldiers grow temperamental on it and insist on winning battles single-handcly like Errol | Flynn? Or will they go into action in weaving, clipping, .stomping Conga lines, night-club fashion? Will wounded wake up in hospitals with cravings for champagne and caviar, or maybe with feelings of blood kinship with, say, Rosalind Russell or Claudette Colbert? What man, anyway, would want to feel like a mere brother to Carole Landis? All the available stunt men in Hollywood, nearly 200, are being trained in beach landings and other invasion maneuvers. It's for movie warfare, tluiuifh—in Republic's "Make Way for the Commandos." . . As our armed forces grow, a difinte shortage of young manpower is being felt by the .studios. Plan Patriotic Film Several studios have boon figuring on pictures dealing with the career of General MacArthur, but there's a move afoot now to get together on a patriotic super-poopor with government co-operation and with receipts earmarked exclusively for war aid. Joan Crawford's pulling no profits from her new picture aisignmeent, "He Kissed the Bride." Her entire §112,500 paycheck will be split between the Red Cross, infantile Paralysis Fund Motion Picture Relief Fund and Navy Relief. Orson Welles' description of a certain actor: "He's a Tenth Columnist— not only boring from within but just as boring from without."—Silly soliloquy by Will Fowler, son of Gene: Tin not under the alco-fluence on incohol, even though some thinklc peep I am. I'm not so thunk as you drink, but I fool so feelish I don't know who is me. The dunker sand here, the longer I get." CoOp Cars The movie companies are folowing the lead of the aircraft factories in charting the rsidence locations and working hours of all employes and issuing lists of the groups with the suggestion they get together and work out arrangements for co-operative use of automobiles in going between homes and jobs. Usually one person can pick up and take home from two to five other ' people, who share the expense. It adds up to a tremendous saving in tires and fuel, and the scheme well might be adopted in all offices and plants. Food for Defense Personal Mention L. W. Young and A. A.

Use food "in season," when the price is lowest. 2. When fresh vegetables are high in price, buy canned vegetables, particularly tomatoes. 3. Cheese may replace some of the milk or meat. One ounce of Canadian cheese may be used in place of a glass of milk. Evaporated milk may be used in place of fresh whole milk. 4. In buying cheaper cuts of meat, select those with little bone'or waste. 5. Foods in bulk usually are cheaper than those in packages. G. If possible, buy foods in quantities to get price reductions. 7. Learn the meaning of "government grades" for food. Cooking Hints 1. Use little water for cooking, except for strongly flavored vegetables. 2. Save cooking water from vegetables, or liquid from tinned vegetables, and use in soups. 3. Cook vegetables with skins on, if possible. Otherwise, scrape or pare thinly. 4. Don't overcook vegetables. Such vegetables as green cabage and spinach need only 8 to 10 minutes cooking. Red cabbage, potatoes and root vegetables need 20 to 40 minutes. 5. Don't overcook meat. Never use a very hot oven. Color Film at Baptist Church Ouachito College Picture to Follow Proyer Meeting Natural color motion pictures of college life will be shown at First Baptist church this Wednesday night following the weekly prayer meeting. Scenes of interest to all students and friends of students will include Military Training, the basketball team and the championship football game this year between Ouachita college and State Teachers' as well as the Thanksgiving game between Ouachita and Henderson colleges. Campus activities and scenes, faculty shots and student organizations will be included in the film which is to be circulated throughout the state by the publicity department of Ouachita college.

Hamilton, pastor of the church, stated that everyone would be welcome to join the prayer meeting and see the film, regardless of denomination. "Of course no admission will be charged," he added. Tea Plants All of the different kinds of tea come from thc same plant, with the differences being due to the processes of culture and curing. Silvertooth, who is stationed in San Fernando, Calif. —O— Mrs. P. W. Taylor will return Wednesday from Monroe, La., where she was ihe guest of her daughter, Mrs. John Rowe, and Mr. Rowe.

LaGuardia Quits Civil Defense Resignation of Mrs. Roosevelt Also Is Demanded WASHINGTON -(/P)_ Demands that Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt leave the Office of Civilian Defense arose in congress Tuesday as Prwident Roosevelt announced Mayor LaGuard- ia of New York, who has headed the OCD since its establishment last fall, is stepping out at once. LaGuardia will be succeeded by James M. Landis, now executive director. A reporter, having in mind that Mrs. Roosevelt became assistant director before Landis joined the office, inquired whether Landis' ',say" would now be final. Thc president replied it would. Mr. Roosevelt explained the mayor never had received a formal appointment because there was some question whether the New York -constitution would permit it but had been requisitioned to organize the OCD and was leaving now that this job had been done. LaGuardia served here without pay. Before the president's announcement, Senator Butler (Rep., Neb.) urged LaGuardia and Mrs. Roosevelt "remove themselves immediately from j the OCD so that the real work can go forward." He contended civilian defense means organizing our civilians against danger, not teaching them new dance steps." "It is obvious that the administration looks on this deadly serious problem as just an excuse for another social experiment," Butler said. "The time is past for boon-doggling. If the communities wisli to organize dancing and calisthenics, I am sure they can do it themselves without direction from the throne." His reference to dancers was a thrust at Mayris Chancy, entertainer and friend of Mrs. Roosevelt. Miss Cbaney was named director of children's activities at ?4,GOO a year. teed. Newcomers to Washington are always impressed by how much everybody in the government knows. A knowledge of law, economy, banking strategy, sociology, care of thc baby and how to make good gravy is possessed by one and all, and even college presidents coming to town are left agape and astounded by the wisdom of the administrators and department heads in your government. But after a short lime, the trick shows through and you find there are only about a couple dozen catch- lines and pet figures which form the text for any speech on "conditions" that you want to deliver. Master and memorize these few words and numbers and you're a Washington expert quicker than you can say G. O. P. Or, if you're not coming this way, you can become the oracle of any business conference, the philosopher on any cracker barrel, the real stimulant of any cocktail party—more brilliant, even, than the fellow who reads those books for 15 minutes a day, the guy who poses for the advertising illustrations on "How to be a Success," the gal whom people laughed at when she sat down at the piano. See How easy it is: Topic No. 1—How to win the war: "We simply must get thc country's spending capacity up to five billion a month. In December 1941 we were spending only one point eight billion. We'll'get up to four billion by the end of this year, but by '43 we've got to reach five billion a month. That's only sixty billion a year, and that will be only half the national income." Keep repeating these figures. Never mind about tanks or airplanes or soldiers or battleships. Topic No. 2—Conversiaon of industry to all-out production: "The trouble is now that there is too much concentration of contracts. Why, do you know that fifty-six corporations hold seventy-four per cent of the war orders and six companies hold thirty-one point three per cent? There are ne hundred and eighty- five thousand manufacturers in the U. S., and they must all be put on war orders." These figures are rather out of date, but no one will dispute you. Use tenths of a percentage wherever possible. That aids in giving the -impression you have your figures down to the last decimal. Don't say, "Thirty one and three-tenths per cent." That's old-fashioned. Say, "Thirty-one point three." It's smarter. Topic No. 3—The Labor Situation: "The country's non-agricultural employment is over forty-one million now, with the unemployment at three point eight million. It will probably show up at four point three million for January by the BLS index, and may rise to five point five million in June—an increase of Oho point five million at the most. By the end of '42, however, conversion will begin to be felt and unemployment will start declining. By '44 we'll have full employment with p non-agricultural labor foi'ce of say fifty-three point three million." If that doesn't spellbind your audience, add this: "And don't forget the role women will play in this! Remember there were thirteen million women over fourteen years of age gainfully employed in 1939, out of a totla of fifty million females in the country. That thirteen can go to twenty-five without any trouble at all." The strike situation is never, never mentioned in polite society, so lay off .yourself. If the talk docs get around to-this-nasty subject, switch it quickly to John Lewis and give your version of what he meant by his C. I. O.- A. F. of L. peace proposal. Say whatever comes to your head. Nobody knows any more about John's motives than you do.' Just be firm and assured in yur manner and tone of voice. If possible, make three points. Topic No. 4-^Finance. Beginners are advised to tr ythis in front of a mirror, at first, until the technique is perfected: "The budget for fiscal '43, is fifty : nine billion, of which fifty-lwo'billion is for notional defense. About forty per cent or twenty-four billion must come from taxes, and sixty per cent or thirty-five billion from borrowing. The national debt was forty bil- lioh when the War began, is now at fifty-seven and it can go to one hundred and ten, but what's one hundred and ten! That's, only, what the national income should be!" Only boors, by the way, mention the national debt. General hints: Mention all government officials by their first names, to prove your'fam- iliarity. Say, "Don" for Donald M. Nelson, and "Leon" for Leon Henderson, "Nels" is Nelson Rockefeller, and not Donald M. Nelson. Sprinkle your arguments with initials of government agencies—BLS for Bureau of Labor Statistics, WPB for War Production Board, EWB for Economic War Board, and so on. See how easy it is? ' ! !

ORDER NOW FROM HOPE Sf AR lOc Per Copy Limited Deferment for Federal Workers WASHINGTON —(/P)— President Roosevelt issued to the heads of all federal departments and agencies Tuesday regulations providing that deferment from Selective Service for government employes shall be requested only when the workers are in a pc&ition related to the war effort and one in which replacements can not be obtained except by (raining a successor through work experience for at least six months. As aproved, the regulations authorize only the head of a governmental ago/icy, or his designated representative, to request deferment for fvcl- eral workers. They will be requited to certify that: Agency heads were told to make an immediate inventory of officers and employes likely to be placed in Class 1-A, and, where necessary, recruit and begin training successors.
