There have been .some dirty suspicions thai ODHWS was in some ways another Office of Civilian De- of right eating. Up to Slates : The word is theoretically spread through state nutrition councils. It's up to the state councils to pass the Harrison in Hollywood Sy PAUL HARRISON, NEA Service Correspondent Communiques From Celluloid Front HOLLYWOOD — All over the lot: Ray Milland was called in by the studio to make u new sound track for n sequence in "Mr. and Mrs. Cugal"—the part where he's wearing' a suit 'of armor. As originally filmed, his voice from the helmet sounded perfectly normal, but what they wanted now was n comic, muffled effect with a trace of resonance like a man mumbling in a well. So here were Mr. Milland nnd Howard Joslin. the .sound effects specialist, and a crew. First Joseliu gave the actor a hunk of fire hose and asked him to talk through that. Sounded terrible. Next (hey tried a large cellophane bag, which was better except that it crackled. Finally Joslin sent for a huge copper kettle. This was suspended vertically from a tripod, and some of the vibration was muffled with towels. Milland put his face inside and began to talk again. Perfect! Shadows Censored The Hays Office now censors shadows. In "Tales of Manhattan" there is a sequence with Ginger Rogers which' would have been perfectly-all right if all of it had been filmed directly. Instead, the director got one of those arty impulses and turned the camera toward a wall for a sha- dow shot. The censors cut it because the lighing accenuaed some of Miss Rogers' curves . . . The censor! also have given Paramount the red light on the old farce title, "Up in Mabel's Room." Studio promised a completely new and harmless story to go with it. but Mr. Hays' helpers ruled the title too suggestive. Comedian Teddy Karts appearance at the Derby the other day surprised several pals who had believed he was en his way to New York. "I can't go yet," complained the actor. "A big deal just came up here, and I gotta wait until it falls through." When a studio casting office wants a bunch of Indians a call is put lo Joe Youngblood, a sort of sub-contractor or agent who has been providing redskin atmosphere for movies ever since the days of silent westerns. Joe, who's a Choctaw himself, now has a special group from many tribes for which he commands special prices; the members are competent actors, can talk, sing and dance^ and provide their own regalia. This band showed up for a call on "The Forest Rangers" set, and Joe was told by Director George Marshall that they'd have little (o do, no lines to speak, and would receive only $15 a day. Youngblood refused to cut his rate. Marshall was equally firm. "Okay." said Joe, beckoning to his braves. "For half price you get only halfbreeds." Wrecked by Clitic There's a legend in Hollywood about a dance director who, after working all day with 120 skimply clad chorus girls, wrecked his car while driving home because he turned his head to stare at a short-skirted cutie getting on a street car. That's typical of the attitude of all Hollywood, and I thought of it while gawking around the set at Warners where the title number of "Yankee Doodle Dandy" is being filmed. This sequence comes in the middle of the picture and is taken from George M. Cohan's "Little Johnny Jones," a show first produced in 1904. The costumes are of the period, being low, elegant and tight—but also daringly split. The gals who fill them comprise a new collection of oomph at this studio, and it's amusing to watch the procession of males from all over the lot dropping in on pretended errands. -«»»«- _ They Left the Dog — and Why Not?

There have also been rumors that in the OCD. reor ganration, a lot of this boondoggling would be dumped in the lap ol ODHWS and carried on from there. Neither of these accusations is quite Correct. ODHWS like OCD is supposed to be a morale building organization or more accurately, to have morale building as one of its principal functions ODHWS considers itself as purely ;; co-ordinating organization, a professional organization if you please, working with professional morale builders to whom is left the job of working with the civilian population. OCD aims its programs right at the civilian population. Please Explain ] OCD is cleaning house of a lot of! this volunteer participation stuff but in so doing is not dumping it on ODHWS.' It has been proposed to move John B. Kelly's physical fitness activities from OCD to ODHWS. Kelly has been asked to justify the existence of his program, but the last word was that he hadn't so far delivered the justification arguments (Mayris Chancy was in his organization), so the matter is still pending. The other frills of OCD will apparently not be transferred to anyone, but just quietly put out of their misery. Governor McNutt is still boss of the shop which operates on a budget of -580,000 from presidential funds. Next-to-the-top executive work is done by a couple of others, Charles ' P. Taft in charge of health and welfare, M. L. Wilson in charge of nutrition. Wilson is also director of the extension service in the Department of Agriculture, so the active work is done by Dr. Helen Mitchell, a professional nutritionist who is out to promote the idea that the country can and must eat its way to victory. Forty per cent of the country, she says, doesn't eat. right, and is therefore suffering from "hidden hunger " The nutrition division of ODHWS hasn't a large staff and it hasn't a large budget. Its job is largely to co-ordinate the work of all the organizations interested in nutrition and spread the word of what good nutrition amounts to through educational campaigns and telling other communities what any one community .has done to further the cause word on to he local communiies in the slale, set up counly or city nutrition councils and in this manner get everyone wised up on the food slamp plan, school lunches, adult education in nutrilion nnd food selection, and so on. At the lowest organization level, this should mean that someone in every community is running a nutrition course to tell the good woman who does the marketing and bends over the stove, for your family how to ,buy and plan meals so you'll gel the most good out of them. If there is a nulri- lion program under way in your com- miiriily, (his plan is working. If not, you are supposed to start complaining lo the authorities. Some of the local community programs are worth writing about. In Springfield, Mass., the newspapers took up this nutrition idea and put it over. They started a campaign for hot meals for the nighl shifl in the munitions plants, with the result tha a Red Cross canteen was opened up for the owl and lobster Irick forces. There was a drive lo "Pack Pep in Your Lunches."

Drake meeU Kay Handy Alon- nuliau, old Hehoolmate, at Ntatiou, * * * Book Two CHAPTER XIX DRAKE DREAMS "IX/TAY I come in, Colonel Skef- JTA fmgton?" The Colonel looked up from his paper. Tom Can- was standing in the door. His immense shock of white hair nnd great beard seemed almost to fill the doorway. "What's up today, Tom?" "Nothing special, sir. I'm going away." "I wish you luck. How are you fixed for the trip?""All right, Colonel, all right. I saved some money. I got me a covered wagon—looks like a horse trader's outfit—hitched right out there on the south side of the square—but it's fixed up all fight. But that's not what I came here for. I wanted to talk to you about Benny Singer." "Singer? Oh, yes, that boy Madame look on her place. How'd he make out?" "All right, Colonel—fine. But he ought to have a job somewhere. I'd like to see him in something before I leave. Now, Benny's a little weak in the head. But he's willing, and good-natured. He's got a regular hand with growing things." "Tell him to come in to see me." * * # rjPOM CARR drove out Federal street. At this moment he had not a care in the world. A half mile beyond the Macintosh place he met a trim, shiny buggy spinning into town. He recognized Drake McHugh, and held up liis arm. Drake pulled up beside the wagon. "Why, howdy, Mr. Carr. You're going away, I hear." "Somewhere west." The old man glanced at the good-looking girl silting beside Drake. "This is Miss Randy Monaghan, Mr. Carr." Tom inclined his head politely. "I'm very pleased to make your acquaintance. Drake, what do you hear from Parris?" "Well, sir, Mr. Carr, he doesn't write much." "Well, when you write to him, give him my best regards. You tell him I sent him my very best." "I'll do that, Mr. Carr. And good luck to you." * * * «T> ANDY, I want to show you something." Drake looked down good- humoredly into the impudent lace that returned a half-affectionate, half-jeering grimace. They reached town and Drake took a short cut across some vacant lots north of the public school. Drake pointed, and the horse started nervously. "You see all that—all this long sweep of. hillside?" "Yes." "All right. This land—all the way around that bend of the creek, as far as Parris' old place —is for sale. Dirt cheap." "I'm just holding my breath for the big surprise." " 'Tain't mine yet. I won't get my money till late this summer. But Peyton Graves and I want to do this together." "What for?" "Can you imagine what it would like to have a big house built up here right where we are, with ?retty green lawns back of the house running all the way to the street, and terraces and rock steps leading down the hill to the creek?" "It would be nice," she conceded. "You bet it would." "Only rich people could build louses like you're talking about, and have grounds like that." "Well, that's all right. We'll sell em to rich people." "But how many rich people are there in Kings Row?" "We wouldn't expect to sell all of it right away. We'd hold it." "Who does it belong to?" "Thurston and Macmillan St. George have got a mortgage on "Funny they never thought of developing it. They're right smart about land, and money—those .wo." "You're doggone smart. That's what I say." "You know all that bottom land on the other side of the creek, down below where I live?" "Oh, yes! I know where you mean—southeast of town, down .'rom the asylum?" "That's the place. I bet it could be fixed up. Could be cleared and drained. I heard Pa say that—I don't know." "WeTl, what in heck could you do with it after you had it, and fixed it up?" "Drake, there's lots and lots of people who work in Kings Row, people in the tobacco factory, and the stocking mill, and the clay pits and the coal mines, who don't own their own homes." "Well, gee, kid, they haven't got any money!" "Not much. But couldn't somebody buy that land down there awful cheap and clean it up and sell little lots pretty cheap? It looks to me like a little profit on a lot of little lots is as good as a bigger profit on just a few big lots." "I'll talk to Peyton about it. Course we can't do anything until I have some cash. Peyton thinks he could borrow some, and—" "But for all Irnit land down below town—I bet you could buy it for a mighty little bit." "Maybe you're right." Drake clucked to the horse. "Let's go, honey." They bumped and swayed back to the street. Drake swished the tasseled whip above the horse's ears. "Say, lioney. Let's ride down and look it that bottom land." "No, Drake. Not today." "Wiiy not?" " 'Cause we'd have to pass right jy home, and Pa's at home by .his time." "Well, for goodness' sake—" "Now, Drake—" "Well, ain't I good enough, even—?" "Drake! You were just going o say, even for me!" Drake turned bright red. "No. I was going to say, even for them." "It's not because they think you are not good enough fpr me, Hit—" She looked away and set ler lips hard. "But what, Randy?" She looked back at him. "It's .his. They know I'm not good enough for you. You belong up on Union street. Your uncle and your aunt were rich and high- oned. My Pa is a railroad section 3OSS." Drake flushed. "Why haven't you ever gone vith some of the girls uptown?" "I was kind of gone on Louise ordon once, but her old man vouldn't let me come around." "Why?" "Thought I was too wild." "So you came downtown. Any- hing south of the courthouse!" "Randy, you know that's not so. You know we met that day Parris vent lo Europe. I was awful blue ind took you riding, and you were io nice, and I just like you." _(T» Be Continued^ •You've won half the battle against cold discomforts If you can open those stuffy nostrils and breathe through your nose without that smothery feeling.
