"Unless we arc ready to take a chance—and you can't win battles if you are not willing to take a chance —we are not worthy of defending this democracy," Tydings declared. "I would be selfish enough to say that where the American flag flies and where American troops are de- Barbara Joan Williams, 3, dive bombs a meal after arriving in Sa« Francisco with her mother from Hawaii.

"But I would rather have seen General MacArthur abandon the Philippines and be moved over to Singapore to save what is perhaps the most important thing rather than lose them both by insufficient reinforcements." Registration (Continued from Page One) istration who is an inmate of an asylum, jail, penitentiary, reformatory, or similar institution, on February 16 is required to register on the day he leaves the institution. (3) Registrants must answer all questions asked by the registrar for notation on the registration card. It is important thaf the registrant describe his place of residence in detail as well as give full particulars as to the address at which he will be sure to receive mail or other communications. Choice of Residence (a) A registrant who has more than one place of residence may choose which one lie wants recorded as his place of residence for he thus will designate the local board which always will have jurisdiction over him. No transient address may be recorded, however, and Selective Service Regulations also prohibit any interference or dictation by a registrar when a registrant having more than one place of residence is making his choice between them. (b) A registrant who lives on an RFD route which goes through two States is required to indicate the location of his residence, rather than his mailing address. While it is important that regis- Iration be conducted as speedily as possible, the Director' said,, every registrant will be given ample time to respond properly to Ihe questions on Ihe registration card. After the registrant has answered all questions and signed his name to the registration card, he will be given a registration certifiiate signed by the registrar. This certificate must be in (he personal possession of the registrant at all times. Failure to posses this certificate, or to show it to authorized persons constitutes a violation of Selective Service Regulations and is considered prima facie evidence if failure to register. No questionnaires will be given registrants when they register, the Director emphasized, nor will they be required at that time to undergo any physical examination. A ques- tioniaire is sent to each registrant when his order number has been determined by a lottery and is reached by his local board. Physical examination is made only after a registrant's local board has passed on his general qualifications and availability and has determined that he should not be deferred from military service for any reason other than possible physical disability. not yet reached their 20th birthday might be' enrolled with the understanding that they should not be called for military duty until the present age limit. In the meantime they would be at the disposal of the government for pro-training of whatever sort is determined to be most valuable to them and to the government. Those who are studying, especially those studying subjects of scientific, technical, or professional value, might be simply "assigned" to that duly. Farm labor and harvest field help, which may be badly needed this fall, could be drown from this pool. In the meantime, they would feel that they have a place; that their services are really helpful and available for whatever work is needed, whether it be in classroom, harvest field, or civilian defense. The worst feeling a person can have in wartime is that of having no place or part in the great national effort. Such a plan for the orderly utilization of the energies of youth, just as we now order the energies of more mature men, is well worth consideration. National Anthem The "Star-Spangled Banner" was not'officially the national anthem of the United States until March 3, 1931, when President Hoover approved the Act of Congress which so designated it. Library Notes For the past 9 months a wide variety of subjects have been asked for at the Hempstead county library. The library is trying to do its part in the war effort by circulating technical and scientific books to the employees of the Southwestern Proving Grounds and to those behind the lines.

He dashed about the orchards like something mad, gathering the low branches into his arms and making loud inhalations as if he tried to breathe them into himself. "Aren't they bee-eautiful, Renee? Prcttier'n last year." They came presently upon a small green pond with spruces and cedars planted in a wide circle about it. The sharp points of the young trees were perfectly mirrored on the still surface. "Ooh, looky—our pond! We ain't been here since last summer, have we?" Renee ran ahead. Parris walked slowly forward, watching her bright hair as she flung the braids back over her shoulders and sat on the grassy bank with hands clasped about her knees. He decided she was a very pretty girl—prettier than anybody — prettier, even, than Cassandra Tower. "You're my best friend, Renee," he said impulsively. "Am I? Honestly?" "Yes, you are. I like you bet- ter'n anybody." "I like you best of anybody— exceptin', of course, Papa and Mama," she said contentedly. "Renee—" Parris stumbled on the name. "This will always be our secret place, won't it?" "Mmm." * * * pARRIS watched his grand•*• mother rather anxiously on Sunday mornings. If she planned to go to church she always gave orders at breakfast for the surrey. Madame von Eln put down her coffee cup and folded her napkin. "Anna, tell Uncle Henry to have the carriage ready at half-past 10." He sighed. It would be fun to call Renee and build a dam in the little creek. Madame came down, crackling in her black taffeta dress. She was wearing her onyx-and-dia- mond earrings and a large brooch at her throat. A number of men stood on the little lawn before the church. Several of them lifted their hats and spoke, Parris could see that they liked his grandmother from the respectful tone of the greetings. That was because she was an awfully important person, of course, the. owner of the Burton County Nurseries, and a woman of affairs. The inside of the Presbyterian church was most pleasant. It was very high, and tall slender windows of colored glass reached far up to the curved ceiling behind the graceful sweep of gallery. Mrs. Cm-ley turned and smiled a subdued greeting to Madame von Eln, and the old banker turned also and bowed gravely sidewise. Parris caught sight of Drake McHugh across the aisle with his aunt and uncle, Mrs. Livingstone and the Major. On the far side of the church, in the little-used north section of seats, Pan-is saw a gleam of copper curls. It was Cassaranda and her mother. He couldn't remember ever having seen them at church before. The service seemed interminable. Parris knew that Dr. Mackay preached exactly an hour, and he felt at the beginning of the sermon that he could not possibly bear it. Maybe he would get sick. That would be terrible. Everyone would look at him. He swallowed hard at the thought and wriggled desperately. Then he dozed. The whole congregation bowed and the lovely words of the benediction faded into a whispering cadence across their heads . . . "In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, Amen." Drake McHugh was squeezing through the outgoing crowd. ''Parris!" The sibilant sound carried sharply. "Hist! Wait a minute outside, will you? I want to see you. Oh, good morn—good day, Madame. Uncle Rhodes and Aunt Mamie said could Parris .stay in town and eat dinner with us and stay this afternoon?" "Why certainly, if you want him to." * * * HE Livingstones lived near the Presbyterian church. Parris thought this must be very convenient and pleasant, but Drake did not regard it as an advantage. Drake McHugh was an orphan, too, and lived with his aunt and uncle, both of whom were as old us Madame von Eln. Drake said that when he was 21 he would inherit his money. Parris had heard people say it was too bad that Drake had to grow up without parents. He could not imagine why they said this. He had no parents either and he was very happy. After dinner Mrs. Livingstone retired for a nap, and the Major sat on the front porch smoking. "I hate Sundays, don't you?" Drake threw a stick at a tall mullein stalk. "Why?" "Gee! They won't let me dc one thing. Of course I slip off, but they don't know it. It's a sin—they say it is, anyhow. I don't see how it can hurt anything just to play." "Me, neither. I'm glad my grandmother lets me play." "Well, Aunt Mamie's gone to sleep. Uncle Rhodes'll be asleep pretty soon. Then we can slip off." "Won't they get after you?" "They won't know anything about it." "Well, I guess it isn't any harm just going somewhere." " 'Course Hain't. Gee, Parris, you're funny." "How?" "You always talk so proper." Parris blushed. "It's the only way I can talk, Drake. You know I have to think when I speak English, and I guess it just goe.-; kind of slow." "Gosh, that's so. You do tal! some other language, don't you? 1 ' "German and French." "It's funny for un American boy to be talking any other kind oi talk but American." Parris scraped at the ground with his heel. "Doas—does it. sound sissy, Drake, the way 1 talk?" "N-no—it don't sound sissy oy- actly. It just sounds like you'v trying to bo awful proper—kinder like you're pultin' on." "Well, I ain't." "Now, that's more like it—when you say 'ain't.' " Parris laughed, but it was a halfhearted laugh. He wanted Drake to like him. Drake jumped up. "Let's go down to the depot. I guess we'll find some of thc.-c lower-end-of-tpwn kids and \vu can do something. They're tough, too," Drake added admiringly. "I'd like to go swimming." Parris sounded almost wistful. "So'd 1, but the closest swim- rain' hole is way down the creek. Too far, I guess. I tell you—lei : s go down to the Elroy's icehouse. We can play in there an' it's coo; us everything. Gus Elroy's got a trapeze, and tlyin' rings an' pur'llel bars lixod up like a regular gymnasium." (To Be Continued) No Vest Now for the Chest War Makes Changes in Male Modes of America By PAUL .T. C. FRIEDLANnER AP Feature Service Writer NEW YORK — Here we go, boys, for a quick brush off of male modes of the moment, a look at what you will and won't wear if you have enough left over after Mar. 15 to get yourself a bright new spring outfit. You won't wear a vest, at least, not one that matches your coat and pants, according to the clothing industry leaders at the 1942 spring style clinic of the New York Retail Men's Wear Council. Watch Your Gravity And you want to be sure to watch your center of gravity because the tailor is going to lower it for you when your back is turned. The boys have come up with a snazzy new number they calle the "low slung lounge" which, they claim, will "create a much longer torso line" without benefit of diet or corseting. The gents who paraded in aluminum sharkskin, coral socks, black shoes and "the lipstick touch" in their brilliant foulard ties—pirouetting gracefully down the Minsky-like runway in the Waldorf-Astoria's grand ballroom—promised to brighten the masculine future., Man Without a Vest This vest business is really serious There also has been much talk by the International Association of Designers of taking the cuffs off men's pants. That may come with the fall line. The spring styles, however, come fully equiped with cuffs although there may be fewer pleated backs to save valuable wool wherever possible. There will be only two-piece suits because, Ralph Schneider, clinic conductor, patriotically asks which is more important: "Should civilians go without vests or fighting men go without uniforms? Taking the vest out of the suit will save a lot of important wool." It also raises the problem of finding room in just a coat and a pair of pants for all the odds and ends a man normally carries in his four vest pockets. The merchants' answer to that is to sell you out of their present supply of odd vests, knitted pullovers and cotton vests, a chest protector just as loud and "exciting" as you can stand. History and taters- all vests are about to repeat themselves. What'H You Have You want that cool, easy look? The boys guarantee it with "garter- less anklets with a waffle pattern," lightweight brogues that "look like a lot of shoe" but aren't. You want to look like a college boy? Try the three-button, single- brested India Whipcord in India tint, witn a iigntweight cream oxford shirt, an eye-opening India madras tie in spectrum hues, high color argyle socks and a heavy Norwegian calf brogue. The model previously representing a smart young businessman achieved the college boy effect simply by adding to all this horn rimmed spectacles and a pipe. You want "off-duty" attire for leisure moments? That rainbow (described as two-tone) sport jacket with dark trousers and fancy socks and shoes won't give you a quiet moment. You want the telephone number of the pretty blonde who made the male models at their best look like something in a mail-order suit? j You can't have that. She goes back to the modeling agency after the spring show. We hope she'll be back for the fall preview. She certainly makes a male style show something to look at. Superstition Natives of Bali, in the Dutch East Indies, are horrified at the birth of boy and girl twins.
