Gulhrie, chief of the Textiles, Clothing and Leather Goods Branch, explained Wednesday the official position of the War Production Board on the question of women knitting sweaters for soldiers and sailors. "The War Production Board," said Mr. Guthrle, "does want women lo knit sweaters where absolutely needed by the Armed Forces and whore the commanding officers auk for the supplies. "It is our opinion that the average soldier nnd sailor is adequately clothed by the government and doesn't need additional clothing. However there are exceptions. Our boys in Iceland are such an exception. They can make good use of addition.-! clothing. The same may bo true o .soldiers sent into the field on lonj, campaigns. "On the whole, we don't want a broad wave of knitting that will consume millions of pounds of wool thu is needed for more essential purposes "This is the system we have se up with the Red Cross. When a commanding officer desire:< such additional clothing as sweaters, he wil apply to the Red Cross, the Rec Cross will then arrange for the sweaters to be knitted. "In this way, every sweater knitted will serve a good purpose anc there will be no waste of material, to say nothing of the labor of some patriotic woman. We welcome the cooperation of women in knitting foi the Armed Forces the things they need, after the commanding officer* have informed the Red Cross of these needs."

"I LOVE YOU" CHAPTER XIII ''THEY spoke of many things—of x his work, what they read, what they thought about. The rain came heavily and went away, leaving a persistent, protestant dripping from the eves. It was much later when Pan-is said, "Maybe I better go now." "Wait a little," She kissed his cheek. "I love you, Cassie." "No you don't, Parris. But that's all right." "Listen now, Cassie." "All right, what?" "Someday I want you to marry me." "Oh, Parris, there isn't any answer for that—now." "But why?" "Because you don't really want to." "I mean it! How do you know what I think? I've got to study and be a doctor and it will be a long time—" She smothered the rest of the sentence with her hand. Parris opened the door and shivered when the drenched night air struck his flushed face. "Listen, Cassie, I've got to see you." "Maybe, Maybe I can think of. n way. But you'd better go now Parris, sure enough. It feels late." "Listen!" The deep bell of the town clock struck slowly—four limes. "What'll you do?" "I'm going over to Drake He- Hugh's. Then I'll say I was with him all night." "Maybe I love you—I don't know." * * * HPHE thinning clouds were turning pink overhead when he knocked at the side door of the Livingstone house. "Say! Who's out there?" Pnrris thought Drake sounded just a little frightened. "It's me, Drake. Parris." Drake flung the door open, blinking and incredulous. "What are you doing around here this time of night?" "I've been at Dr. Tower's." "This late?" Drake was incredulous. "He's in St. Louis. I went by for my books. Cassie and I started talking—" he broke ofl "She's beautiful, Drake." "Don't I know it!" "I guess I'm in love with her." "Maybe so, but you'd still better take oft' that wet coat. And if Dr. Tower finds out you've fallen for her, even pneumonia won't save you. Come on and get into bed." Parrfs laughed a little. What a wonderful friend Drake McHugh was! He understood you so well. He thought of Cassie. Ah image of her floated into his waning consciousness and her presence in his mind flooded his nerves with a faint excitement. * * * CPRING in Kings Row was never more than a brief, prelude to summer. The leaves unfolded and there was a week or two of balmy warmth, then a sudden onslaught of blistering heat. The idlers who hung about stoves in the back quarters of stores came out and took their accustomed places on the courthouse lawn. On the west porch of the courthouse was another group. This was the upper order. They were witness, jury, and judge of any happenings in the town or county. "Say, I hear old man Tod Irving down at Little Fork passed on." A new speaker interrupted. "I guess you all .ain't heard the news about Mis' Sims." "She was operated on by Dr. Gordon last week." "Is that so? What for?" "I don't know exactly. Something about her ear, I heard." "Oh." "Well, I hear the operation went through all right, but they say half her face is paralyzed." "Does seem to me, though, this Gordon does a powerful lot of operatin'." * * * T}R. TOWER handed a small German pamphlet to Parris. "This may interest you. It is 'new —and important." Dr. Tower watched Parris keenly. "I saw your grandmother yesterday." Parris looked up, somewhat startled. "Yes, sir?" "I hope you won't misunderstand my question, but have you any idea what's wrong?" Parris laid the book down. "No, I haven't really. I believe—well, sir, I just hadn't thought it could be anything serious." "She doesn't look well." The peculiar emphasis this time really frightened Parris. "Do you think there is something—" Dr. Tower interrupted brusquely. "I don't think anything about it. I'm not your grandmother's physician." Parris flushed darkly. "Have you any relatives?" "None at all. Only some very distant ones—that my grandmother doesn't like much." "H'm. You'll be quite alone when—quite alone some day." Parris didn't answer. His lips were quivering. "Did you ever hear of Dr. Ladd in St. Louis?" "Yes, sir." "Do you think you could in any way persuade Madame von Eln to go to St. Louis to consult him?" The color faded slowly .from Parris' face, his eyes darkened, and his words came huskily. "I don't know how I could do it. She'd want to know what me think of it." "Yes, yes. Doubtless. Is Skef- flnglon her lawyer?" "Yes, sir." "Could you talk to him?" "Maybe. Or could you?" "No." The reply was curt. Parris shrank sensitively from the cutting tone. "I guess I'm being kind'of awkward this afternoon, sir, but, gee, Dr. Tower, I—I've been scared all this winter. I didn't know why. It was just—just instinctive." "H'm, yes, I see. I think you're going to be a good doctor, Parris." "Isn't Dr. Gordon a good doctor?" Dr. Tower looked steadily at Parris for a moment. "Not a very tactful question, young man, nor a very ethical one for a young doctor-to-be to ask." He smiled, and Parris smiled, too, rather wanly. "You trust my judgment, do you?" "Oh, absolutely. I know you know." Dr. Tower colored a little, a very little. Parris stared. "I'm. curious to know why you think so." "Well, sir, there are some things you just know." "Instinct?" "Yes, sir. I guess so." Parris moved forward in his chair. He forgot the distant formality thut j usually charactered his talks with Dr. Tower. "You remember that little book of Friedlander's that you had me read last month. He said a lot about unconscious observations and how we some- j times add up a long sum of this kind of observations and come lo conclusions that are quite right without knowing how we got them." "Yes." "Well," Parris smiled frankly, "it's like that." Dr. Tower looked grave. "Well, keep your mind open. You're going to 1 see and learn a lot of new things in your life. We're on the brink—the very brink of important discoveries. Sometimes intuitions are a good corrective for the natural astigmatisms of human perceptions."

Walnut Phone 105 Clean Up on Soap Operas Bess Flynn Makes Plenty Writing for Radio By ADELAIDE KERR Wide World Features Writer Some time ago the boys used to say the girls didn't have creative brains —the kind of brains that make money. Today let me introduce you to n pair of soap opera queens—both wives, mothers and stars in the radio serial world. One is Bess Flynn, a smiling gray- haired woman who whips out two five-day serials a week to the tune of more than $50,000 a year. The other is Bess Johnson, a tall, good-looking blonds, whose flexible actress voice brings her $1,800 a week as star of another soap opera. Mrs. Flynn turns out a weekly stint that would drive most people berserk —15,000 words, 52 weeks a year, divided between the two cerials "Bachelor's Children and "We the Abbotts." She does it by a system nil her own. Every night she reads omnivorously —best sellers, magazines, newspapers. The minute she gets up in the morning she begins to plot and after breakfast goes straight to her dsek. She talks her stories into a dictating machine, a secretary transcribes them and she edits. Between times she runs Dwyer and Mrs. W. H. Bourne will conduct Red Cross knitting classes at their home for the benefit of ladies desiring to knit for the Red Cross. Ono hundred sweaters completed recently will be labeled and packed. A number of assistants will be needed by the group to complete the shipment. Persona! Mention Mr. and Mrs. Lile Moore and E. F. McFaddin are in Hot Springs Wednesday to sec t)i<? races. —O— Thomas Kinser has been initiated inlo Kappa Sigma, social fraternity, at the University of Arkansas, friends will be interested in knowing. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Tom Kinser of this city. —O— The Reverend Harry Wintermeyer has gone to Mississippi State college. Starkville, to take purl in the religious emphasis week on the campus. -O- Roy Anderson and daughter, Mrs. Thompson Evans, Jr., motored to Little Rock Tuesday. —0— L. A. Arnett, Jr. of Ft. McDonald, Calif., is visiting his parents, Mr. and Mrs. L. A. Arnett, 308 South Laurel street. Mr. and Mrs. W. O. Woshburn, of Wilkes-Barre, Pa., and their daughter, Mrs. Clark H. Ywigor, of Baltimore, Md., arrived in Hupp Wednesday to visit thoir son uml brother, Alex II. Wusliburn. They are .sto|jjiiiig at Hotel Barlow. the household on the five acre place which she and her husband, Charles Flynn, built, at Westport, Conn., and mothers three grown children. How does she keep up the pace? . She Doesn't Worry "I just live my life one day at a time," she said. "A threatened breakdown taught me that. When I finish work I don't think 'I haven't an idea in my head for the next day!' I let tomorrow Uike care of itself when it comes." The depression pushed Mrs. Flynn into soap opera. She and her husband had been stock company actors who retired to the Chicago suburbs and a printing business after their family arrived. When the depression wiped Mr. Flynn's job away and things looked very black, Mrs. Flynn got the hunch to seek a radio acting job for her gifted ten-year-old son. He got the job and she landed another on the same program for §30 a week. When she grew bored with the serial stories she acted, she wrote some herself and rang the bell. Bess Johnson's is a hard work story too. She worked in a restaurant and modelled for artists to pay for her course at Hie American Academy of Dramatic Art in New York. In the next few years she whisked through several seasons in a Chicago stock company, marriage, motherhood of a daughter and divorce. Then when she sought a radio job in Chicago nobody would hire her. That high class accent she had worked so hard to learn at drama school was too "society lady" for the middle west. So she went to vtork in a ten cent store to learn midwest-ese. After she had mastered it she tried out for a program whose sponsor virtually turned her down because he wanted "somebody who could talk like a lady." Bess Johnson laughed, turned on the old technique and got the job. For eight years she was the famous lowpitched voice on the Lady Esther program. Eventually she moved into soap opera and now is the actress star and guiding spirit of the serial "The Story of Bess Johnson." The famous golden voice on which she worked so hard is known to millions—makes 'em laugh, makes 'em weep, soothes 'em when they are low. She is now the wife of Peter Fick, champion swimmer, with whom she runs a ranch at Peekskill, N. Y. Both Bess Johnson and Bess Flynn think soap opera is headed for change —more humor and less melodrama. "The war is largely responsible," they say. "Programs now have to be moile adult, witty and humorous. Big doses of laughter." Vice President Wallace has qualified as a tank driver. Even being vice- president doesn't stop some men.
