Parris said he was terribly busy, working harder than ever, but now that his stay, was certainly more than half over he had begun to think about his return. He couldn't hope now to start back to America before September of 1902. He had been in correspondence with Dr. Nolan, the medical head of the state asylum, the situation looked encouraging. Why didn't Drake write? What was he doing? Had he really ever started that real-estate venture? And how about Louise? Had Kings Row heard about Vera? Vera had come to Vienna, and played with the Royal Philharmonic. She'd made a real success. Vera had developed amazingly in every way.

"All right, I help you." » * * DANDY MONAGHAN'S father opened the door of the kitchen stove and laid several sticks of wood on the coals. It was Sunday morning, and he had had breakfast two hours earlier. There was a slow, undecided splendid talk on "Deeper Spiritual bnsecration." Mrs. W. C. Reeves spoke on "Keep he Press Rolling for Prohibition." Mrs. Guthrie closed her splendid M-ogram by taking the members on .he Union Signal Bus ride, the tic- cets one dollar a year, with weekly rips; many subscriptions were obtain- 1. The guests were invited into the dining room where cakes and coffee were served from the tea table which was centered with a bowl of Jonquils. Boys Called for MansizeJobs May Make Models of Enemy Planes for Spotting By JACK STINNETT WASHINGTON-Thls story might be called "And n little child shall lead them, etc." Because if the United Slates is ever subjected to air raids, some of the defense may well be attributed to the nation's 2,000,000 or so model airplane builders. A plan is afoot now, sponsored by the Notional Aeronautics Association nnd the Navy, and approved by the Army Air Corps, to turn these youngsters with a hobby into builders of model enemy aircraft. From these models, the Navy nnd Civilian Air Defense Corps (the Army has its own project) may learn cxcrything there is to know about spotting. The project belongs primarily to the National Aeronautic Association which recently consolidated with the Air Youth of America. This brought under direct control of the NAA more than 700 affiliated model clubs with a quarter of a million members and more than 12,000 licensed mode" builders. From among model builders have come such men as the late Capt. Colin P. Kelly, Jr., the Wright Brothers, Glenn L. Martin, Donald W. Douglas, Igor Sikorski, and William B. Stout. Civilian Air Defense, the Army and Navy arc suddenly faced with the problem of teaching thousands lo recognize Ihe silhouettes of our own and enemy planes as far distant as powerful field glasses can pick them up. Just ho wthe Army is bundling this is its secret, but how the Navy and Civilian Defense plan to handle it is a bow and a scrape to what a few years ago was considered merely a childish hobby. One of the largest model airplane companies has placed its staff at the disposal of the government and these draughtsmen and model engineers, working on a 24-hour-a-day schedule are turning out designs and mater models of every known plane. These will not be designs for fly- ng models. They will be spccifica- ions and master models of "silhou- ttes," which will be rushed oul to he hundreds of model clubs and mil- ions of model bcildcrs for immediate cproduction. These little silhouette ilanes will be turned over to civiliar X-Kiss, No More! Honoluli Censors Letters of Love Society roake one bang-up place just ow how it would look." see.

Almost as long as the time he had been absent. And that had seemed an eternity. He had never told anyone how much he missed Parris, not even Randy. He couldn't explain that to anyone. It was hard for him to understand it himself, He had never felt that way about anyone. It was colder. The wind was leveling out into a steady cutting blast. He'd have to get in somewhere. Darned if he wasn't half frozen. , . . Drake made a wide arc about the lower end of town. He came presently 'to the railroad and followed it to Fritz Bachman's place. He fumbled the doorknob with numb fingers. "Give me a drink, Fritz." "Better step into the back room, Drake. I bring it." Drake dropped into a chair at a small table in Fritz's back room. He couldn't think, and he couldn't even shape his feelings into any kind of order. * * * JCHERIFF SAM WINTERS fin- knock on the door. "Good morning, Mr. Monaghan."

"No, thank you. Sam Winters gave me'some coffee." "Sam Winters?" "Yes, I was locked up in the calaboose last night, Mr. Monaghan," Mr. Monaghan set the coffeepot down with a clatter. "What for?" "I got drunk at Fritz Bachman's, and Sam Winters happened to come along about the time Fritz wanted to close up. Sam took me to the calaboose so I wouldn't freeze somewhere." Mr. Monaghan grunted. "I want a job, Mr. Monaghan!" "Well?" "Could you get me a job on tho railroad?" The weather-beaten old man looked keenly at Drake. "Tell you what I think I can do." "Yes?"

By BETTY MACDONALD NEA Service Staff Correspondent HONOLULU — Even the universal anguage of love has to be censored n Honolulu. Censors have cautioned love letter writers not to pen a string of X's across the bottoms of their epistles. That's definitely out, for military reasons.

We, theWomen Hoarder's Lot Isn't A Hnppy One By KUTH MILLETT There are a few women like her in every community. Not willing to take pot luck with the rest of Americans until the war is over, she is trying to fix things so that she won't lack for anything. If others have to scrimp on sugar —she won't. There is a nice supply stored away in her basement. She'll still be serving pineapple when her neighbors can't gel it any more. For months ago, she laid i' away in case lots. When other housewives find tha canned goods arc up in price—or perhaps, even impossible to buy at th corner grocery—she'll still be serving vegetables from her basement supply. And when others complain tha their old electric ice box is about tc give up the ghost and tick its las tick, she will be able to smile. Fo as soon as she heard that manu facture of such things as electric ic boxes, washing machines, etc., wa to be curtailed, she replaced all he still-good equipment with brand I new. She has done everything she can to put herself in a position where she'll be sitting prettier than her neighbors during the next few years. She's Sitting Prelty, But . . She is ready for any shortage that has been hinted at from silk stockings to automobile fan belts. So, of course, she should be sitting back relaxed and secure. But—such is life—the hoarder isn't happy. She has a new worry—and 'honicx: I warned you you'd belter come FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH Dr. E. P. J. Garrott, Pastor it's a real one.

But I'll lay off f you won't tell the sludlo this is virtually a vacation for me. Instead I'll tell you that Greg La lava has decided to give this part of Arizona back to the Indians. This is not an unflattering estimate of the }laco; it's just that he has to do somc- .hing with the ghost town he has built icre, and he might as well turn it over to the original citizens. Roofs and Everything This is undoubtly the most substantial ghost town in the country. Most ot the buildings have roofs and arc entirely livable. Greg had it made that way so if it rained he could move indoors and go right on shooting. And it does rain in Arizona. Also, there is nolhing spooky aboul Irene Dunne, Pat Knowles, Ralph Bellamy or Gene Pallette. Especially Gene Pallette, who is thriving visibly on the cuisine. La Cava spent about 10,000 bucks on these modest buildings, and there has been some locul uneasiness about his folding up everything and taking it back to Hollywood. Of coui-sche has no such intention. A lot of people have mnde offers for the joint, with the highest bid coming from "Lone prospector" Allen, who is 78 and has been leading a burro around these wastelands for nigh onto 60 year; Allen offered ?50, cash on the barrel- head. A bunch of Pima Indians, headed by a spy individual called Bounding Elk, wants the ghost town fo the very modern designation of "living space" and offer a cash payment of ?11.85 plus nn assortment of fancy pottery. A calf also has been mentioned as part of the deal, but Grag isn'1 sure whether he is to provide sue! an animal or whether he is to receive it for the further stocking o his estate, which now has only chicken-hating dogs and dog-hating chick ens. At any rate, he figures on givinfe Horses Hate Him Greg seems to get along with cv thing—even to studio nuditors desert sidewinders—except likes horses, too, and cnn't unders' why the feeling isn't reciprocal. last time he went riding, the honfcf;? not only threw him, but tried to v'otisj on him while ho lay prone nnd wound4»t ed in spirit. ^ __ you ever come over here I'm surel yeur first interview would have bej»| with Jane La Cava, the director's i headed, 8-year-old stepdaughter w making her debut in the picture, title has been switched from "Shell cred Lady" to "Lady in a Jam."
