Spring flowers in artistic arrangements adorned the rooms. Jonquils and hyacinths predominated in the floral decor which curried out the green and white color scheme. Mrs. Gus Haynes, the president, presided mid Mrs. Edwin'Ward, recording secretary, rend the minutes of the previous meeting. Roll ..call response brought out sonic particularly interesting and informative facts. The leader for the afternoon, Mrs. Hugh Jones, announced her subject "Education," and after introductory remarks presented Mi's. S. B. Henry who gave "Tho Most Unforgctablc Character I've Met" by Robert P Tristram Coffin, showing - the method used by his father in educating his children contrasted with y more modern method.

But now it's apparent that the Brothers Crosby arc much alike in one way—they share an amazing talent for Midas-like showmanship. Here is Bob, now, leading his band at n local dance palace, working on a big radio program, turning out phonograph records in spare moments, and listening politely to the rising bids of the movie studios. If anybody mentions $40,000 per picture for the band, he may assent; otherwise they will hit the road again and resume their gravy-grabbing at the big- one-nighl stands. No Horn Tootcr Young Mr. Crosby—he's 28—has handsomely justified the hunch of a group of musicians who six years ago chosen colors of green and white. Display of Gourds at Gardenia Garden Club Meeting Meeting at the home of Mrs. A. K. Holloway Tuesday afternoon, members of the Gardenia Garden club heard a program on "Gourds" presented by Mrs. Frank Ward. : For the meeting the home was beautifully decorated with gay bouquets of spring flowers. Also adding to .the ^setting were unusually at-. Lractivc displays in gourd containers brought by the members. Mrs. R. D; Franklin's display was judged the best. After her program, Mrs. Ward gave each member a package of gourd seeds as favors. A delicious desert course was served during the afternoon to 15 members <md 1 guest.

At the time, he was a mediocre vocalist with other dance bands, and he couldn't play so much as taps on any instrument. He still can't. But his lack f technical knowledge of music is more than balanced by the aforementioned showmanship. Bob Crosby knows not only what the customers want, but what lime of evening they want it. Like this: "I think of it in terms of a guy and his gal, an individual couple. They arrive at 9, say, and for half an hour they just want to look things over. They dance past the stand and she says, 'He doesn't look much like Bing," and he says, 'I see they've got seven brasses.' Pretty soon they get the feel of the music and really want to dance. By 11 o'clock they're tired and want to be entertained. "Comes 11:30, and they get dim lights and sweet music. This gives the lad a chance to pitch his private, copyrighted brand of romance. By midnight he'll have the situation well in hand if he's ever going to, so from 12 to 1 o'clock it doesn't make any difference what we play." Mot for Boston That general formula applies anywhere, but the mood and tempo of the performance changes with the locale, i Crosby told how different sections of the country prefer different styles in music. "Take Boston," he said, "and! all New, England, for that matter— •they really go for the gullyllow stuff. It's amazing. I like to think that they want to hear it and study it more' than dance to it. "New York likes it hot or sweet, but cno thing it won't take is trick-hat business. "Trick hat'? oh, that's a word for a novelty band." Kay Kyscr and Phil Harris have novelty bands, and their favorite romping ground is the middle west- places such as Chicago and Cincinnati love 'em. The whole south, though, likes personality with its dance music —on the Abe Lyman order. A successful leader in Memphis or New Orleans is a cordial master-of-coremon- les full of the old hello-folks-it-sure- is-nice-to-be-herc spirit. The west coast, said Crosby, is just getting around to becoming jazz or boogie conscious. Bob Crosby has made a few pictures Booby Traps, Boom Biscuits Deadlier Than Anything a Bride Ever Whipped Up Wide World Features "Boom Biscuits" deadlier than anything an absentminded bride ever whipped up on her first try are the newest defense against tank attacks Boom biscuits are anti-tank mines erroneously called land mines. Anti-tank mines are biscuit-shaped rheyre spread thickly—the thicker the better-in the path of a threatened tank advance. The weight of an armored vehicle sets them off. The Germans are using a large mine, intended to destroy the lank and kill its crew. The U. S. and other nations favor a smaller "biscuit" designed to break tank treds and stop it, so it's a pot-shot for anti-tank gunners. Advantage of the smaller mine is that more can be carried by field transport facilities, and threatened areas can be more thickly "planted." Engineers go to great lengths to conceal their mines. Freshly dug earth is left where there are no mines. If a tank jockey takes the bait and drives over apparently undisturbed ground nearby, it's boomps-a-daisy and wire his folks. The mines can't be set off by a Greece Fights On and doesn't think much of himself as an actor. He offers no apologies for the band, though, which for years has been among the top three in radio popularity and record sales. At Irving Berlin's insistence, the outfit recently recorded the nine now tunes for the movie, "Holiday Inn," though the musicians don't actually appear in the picture. This Greek pilot is typical of the men of the Royal Hellenic air lorce operating with the United Nations in the middle east- soldier walking over them. The engineers explained there's no use waist- ing that much powder to get a man. They have deadly little practical jokes—the exploding cigar is their grand-pappy—that they use against troops. They're officially tagged as personal mines—soldiers know them as booby traps. Tins of food, souvenirs, pump handles, light switches, drawers, loose boards, in fact anything the unweary soldier might pick up or touch may set them off. What are properly called land mines were often used in the last war. They were tons of explosive placed at the end of tunnels dug under enemy MOROLINE HAIR KON-SMD BOTTLE TONIC I0<25< Calls for Pretty SHOES You can lift the gloom around you with gay touches in your wardrobe this Spring.
