Parris followed Elise into the house. Elise's father came in presently. He was an amiable giant, with eyes like Elise—the same youthful blue. He had a great beard that spread over his chest. There was something elementally good-humored about him, and gentle. "You must come often, if my child is not tiresome." "Elise?"

"Yes, you must feel that it is a little your home again—if you will." "You're awfully good. That goes to my heart, Elise." "You'll come—often?" Elise held her hands clasped together like a child. "Yes. You may be sure." Nevada County Medical Society Meets Thursday Night The Nevada County Medical Society, met Thursday night at the country home, Buck Lodge, of Dr. A. C. Buchanan. After a pot-luck supper, a short business meeting was held. Those enjoying the occasion were: Dr. L. J. Harrell, Dr. C. A. Archer, Dr. J. W. Kenndey, Dr. A. W. Hudson, Dr. J. B. Hesterly and one guest, Dr. William Arnold of Ft. Smith. living Takes Wartime Shape Most Likely Drostic Change Will Be Transportation WASHINGTON-The pattern of wartime living is beginning to shape up. The future still is too uncertain to make predictions snfc but some lines in the picture of things to come for John A. Public arc being rapidly sketched in. To consider n few of the most important: No. I 1 on anybody's list must be transportation for it is likely to be the most drastic of all the changes ahead and probably will be felt first Some here predict the auto and rub- aer shortages will set a lot of us back on our heels by autumn. That's ;oing to effect home life, social life, recreation, and vacations (train travel might be restricted too). Getting ac- luanitcd with one's close neighbors is ikcly to become more popular than liking or pedalling across town or to the next village to spend an evening with Bill and Mary. And recreation will be found closer to home than the country club that is ten miles out. As for vacations, transportation will affect them most, but restrictions on coastal areas and a rapidly expanding army on wheels ranging over vast sections in maneuvers, will also have their affect. (2). Food. There's going to be plenty of it. even if the war drags on, but menus are going to change. Try putting together a meal without using anything that comes in a can (except soups, the supply of which may not be reduced), no spices or condiments that come from the Orient, less sugar (and therefore more sugar substitutes). No 3, Clothing. This, too, will be plentiful, but it won't be the same. Silk is out and nylon too, as soon as present processed stocks are depleted. Cotton and rayon are plentiful. The wool supply is being carefully shepherded. Women's dresses will have fewer frills, gadgets and costume jew- elery—or none at all. Male attire may undergo drastic changes. Eliminate two trouser suits, vests, cuffs, pocket flaps and possibly even lapels. There will be fewer colors in women's wear and the gent given to flamboyant colors and race-track checks will have to do his satrorial strutting in black and the darker shades of blue and brown. (4) Money. The prospects here are too complicated for any one outside the field of economy to forecast with any certainty. If Leon Henderson's price fixing works, if wages and farm prices can be kept from skyrocketing and a couple of dozen more "ifs," there will be more money with less to spenc it on. The "more money" probably will be in the hands of formerly un- ScorcKecJ RuBBer Policy in Action Society [3ARRIS was surprised one evening by a visit from Peyton Graves. Peyton sat for a while, smoked, fidgeted, and made aim- ess comments on the weather. It was easily evident that he was under some severe strain. He crushed out another half- moked cigaret. "Parris, how's old Drake getting along?" Parris raised >his eyes slowly and looked straight at Peyton, who flushed uncomfortably. "Drake McHugh? Well, I suppose you mean in his business. I should think you'd know about hat." Peyton's color deepened painfully. "You know, I just never did get down to see him. You know how t is." "All of Drake's old friends seemed to find it difficult to see him. Not a single one of his old acquaintances ever went to see him at all—not one." Parris wasn't making it easy for Peyton to go on, though it was clear there was something Peyton wanted to say. "I hear Drake's going to branch out quite a bit." "I'm a doctor. I have no idea what Drake and Mrs. McHugh are planning." All at once Parris was sorry for tiim. "What's on your mind, Peyte? You're in trouble." "Business. Crescent Hill. I believed it would go after a while. If Thurston St. George had lived—" "And when you had to deal with the executors, you found you were in over your head? Then sell out." "I've used a lot of money that the St. Georges let me have for improvements. Used it—different ways." "Peyton!" "Yes, I did. I'm in a terrible fix." "How much of this money did you misappropriate?" "Eighteen thousand." Parris whistled. "Well, what do you want me to do?" "Speak to Drake. I ought to be good on the selling end—handle some business on commission. Through my own office, of course." "Why don't you go to Drake yourself?" "I—I can't, Parris. It sounds pretty bad, but one time—he carne to see me. He asked for a job." Parris' voice was icy. "What did you say?" "I had to turn him down. Hated to do it. But Drake was drinking a lot. He—he looked pretty seedy and all that. If he'd straightened out, I needed somebody to-* •" (To Be Continued) Miss Florrine Gentry is spending the week-end in Waco, Texas. Mrs. J. M.

Most sensational of the shifts concerns the new Service of Supply which now swallows completely the old Quartermaster Corps, the Ordnance Department, the adjutant general's department, and the whole administrative and supply lunctions of the employed; those (especially skilled machinists and factory workers) who haven't for years been able to work every day; industrious farmers; and in the hands of those who supply the goods and th* pleasures that money can buy.

For starting all plants which it is convenient to transplant into the garden (and which accept such treatment) the seed box is a useful device, even after the weather permits outdoor sowing. One" great advantage of the box is that you know just where your seeds are; and can move them about, into the sun or .shade as they may require. They may be kept where with little trouble watering can be done and frequent inspections made to insure the seedlings are growing with proper vigor. Damping off is seldom, encountered; spindly plants are unknown and growth is more vigorous and rapid. An outdoor box started four weeks later than an indoor box will often have its plants ready to set out only two weeks later than the indoor plants. Sowing Seeds in Outdoor Box. Fill your box within an inch of the top with loamy soil, well sifted. Seeds in the outdoor box should be sown thinly so that it is not necessary to transplant the seed' lings twice. Drills made with the edge of a ruler, spaced an inch or two apart, will enable you to sow more seeds in the box than if you broadcast the seeds. You may also sow several varieties, and mark the name and color on each row. Where you sow only one kind of seed in a box the seed may be broadcasted; and this will prob ably give the seedlings the maximum amount of room to develop. major developments Jjwolv'ng j This method is often followed with very fine seeds, like petunias, are reported to the sup goddess at the shrines of Ise by the Japanese premier. which are scattered on the surface, and covered by raking the soil lightly with the edge of a .ruler^ or Army. Only 'wo combat branches of the Army — the air forces and the ground forces— are excluded from the Service of Supply and the commanding general of the SOS, Maj. Gen. Brchon B. Somervcll, thus becomes one of the most important men in the Army, being exceeded in importance by only the chief of staff and being of equal position with the two lieutenant generals commanding the air and ground forces, though Som- ervcll is only a major general, as yet. Gathering all this miscellaneous departments into one administrative basket is a tremendous move towards simplification of Army procedure. It has potentialities for tying in a lot of red-tape which has bound up Army routine for many years, Over-simplifying, the SOS will aim to do everything for a soldier except fight. Exclusive of aircraft and "flying equipment, which will still be ordered by the air force, the SOS will determine the soldier's requirements for food, clothing, shelter, health, cqcipmcnt, weapons, ammunition. This was formerly thte job of G-4, the supply section of the general staff. Once those requirements are determined, the SOS will take care of procurement— determining where and how all these requirements can be met. It is at this level that the SOS will tic in with the activities of the War Production Board which, though still outside the War Department as a civilian organization will act as the go-between for the Army and civilian industry to insure the soldiers getting what they need when they need Detroit Must Double Work ' The Automobile Industry Has Gone < All-Out to War By DAVID J. WILKIE Wide World Features DETROIT — The automobile industry hus gone to war. ( Only n few duys ago it rolled off the assembly line here the last of more lh:in 8G million curs manufactured since this country's first one In 1892. Already its machines arc turning out 4 tanks, nviation engines, bomber sub- '" assemblies, anti-aircraft cannon and oilier weapons. The potentialities in the conversion of Uiis great industry to a 100 per cent war basis lire filmost terrify- ng. And the humon problems it i raises nrc as grout perhaps as the ncehnnicnl problems. Even before the last piissenger ve- liclcs were off the assembly lines, conveyor bells were being ripped out :md machines for stamping sheet metal i were being .shunted nsidc for machines lo cut hnnclle armor plate. It is a gigantic job, ns well as n grim one, Hint the industry has undertaken. This ycnr its arms output will bo 10 times hist year's half billion dollar's worth. In hand already ' are 13 billion dollars worth of orders, witli additional allocations almost daily. To In I Output 11 Guess When will it reach capacity production? Factory heads accustomed to | seeing a half million or more cars roll out monthly won't even guess. But the unanimous statement of management, labor and the war production board representatives was that in less than 12 months the industry would require more than twice as ' many workers as were needed at peak" production time last year. That means more than 1,000,000 in the factories alone. It means, according to Ernest C. Kanzlcr. new chief of the WPB automotive job, the assignment of thousands of women to factory work. Auto engineers say that while the manufacture of passenger cars stopped suddenly, the shift to a war basis is not sudden. War production has been going on for months. And they say that it really isn't a conversion, but a retooling and rearrangement. Meantime auto workers are out of work. A third of a million of the factory hands are idle now and probably will be for two t four months. In many cases the idle period will be only dightly more than that resulting from the annual shutdown. Thousands of retail sales division employes and other white collar workers also are Always Firm Soil Over Seed. stiff cardboard, then firming it. After the seeds are sown, and covered with soil, the dirt should be firmed over them. The next step is to soak the soil with water, without washing tho seed out of place. The quickest! and best way is to lower the box in a tub of water until it soaks up enough from the bottom to wet tho surface. The box should be watered daily. An outdoor box which is filled with loamy soil which lets excess water pass through freely can hardly be overwatered. In the spring the box may be kept in the full sun all day, so long as temperatures do not rise above 80 degrees. Seedling plants first develop a pair of what are known as "seed leaves." These are not really leaves, but look like leaves. They it. SOS Troops Facilities for procurement deler- Transplant Directly Into Garden. are followed by a pair of true leaves, and it is a general rule that seedlings may be transplanted after the true leaves form. In the outdoor seed box, however, if the seeds have been sown thinly, the seedling plants may be left without being disturbed until they are two or three inches high and have formed sturdy roots. They will reach this size faster if they are not subjected to the shock of transplanting to another box or pot. When the little plants are large enough, and their places in the garden have been prepared, carry the seed box directly to the place where they are to be set out. This will enable you to lift them from the box and set them in the garden, soil with the slightest possible disturbance of their roots, and the least .possible shocltj. ,.._ , * mined, the new SOS will let the contracts for equipment. Contracts let, the SOS will supervise the production for the Army. Here Lieut-Gen. William S. Knudscn, as director of production for the Army, will be in command. Peculiarly, General Knud-sen will be the highest ranking officer in the SOS, serving under Major General Somervcll. Storage and distribution becomes the next function of the SOS and here again the now far-reaching authority of the SOS becomes apparent for all the corps area commanders of the Army have been brought under Service of Supply administration. The whole SOS, in fact, becomes an organization to supply fully equipped fighting men and to keep them supplied. Even the transportation of these fighting men to the zones of combat and the transpyortatiun fo supplies to the task forces is an SOS job. This means there will be SOS troops with each of the task forces, to receive these supplies and to keep the supply lines operating immediately behind the various fronts. But on the basis of the Army needing two or three soldiers behind the lines for every soldier at the front, it can be seen that the SOS will be by far the biggest organization in the Army. Another Idea All this conies at the moment when there are the first stirrings of a movement for taking all procurement functions away from the Army and grouping them with the procurement branches of the Navy, the Maritime Commission, the lease-lend administration and the treasury, and grouping them in a single agency. This recommendation comes from the House committee investigating national defense migration, which started out to do a job on labor problems but has since taken in almost every phase of the war effort. Both the old OPM and its successor, the WPB, have considered this idea previously but have rejected it for the present- first because any move to change government procurement methods now would wreck the whole machinery, and second because each of the procurement services now 141 existence such as the Army's SOS, must determine what it needs and how und when it needs it. marking time. For Jack, the auto worker, it is serious. It is the second lay-off for him in a little more than six months. Jack Has Problems In recent years Jack has averaged 40 weeks of work annually and has earned about ?1,600 n year. He pays around $35 a month rent ordinarily. He uses the installment plan to buy his used car, his furniture and his electric refrigerator. House rents, union officials point out, have increased from ?5 to Jl" a month recently. During the shutdown last August and September, most of the men now waiting for war production to speed up were waiting for new car production. Along with the rest of them. Jack drew upon his state unemploy- mcnt allowance. And so, for the current 12 months, Jack has exhausted his eligibility for unemployment com- That's why R. J. Thomas, UAW- CIO president, recently urged a debt moratorium and other union officials ^': sought deferment of income tax payments for these factory workers. Just now Jack has time once more to bowl and to look forward to the baseball season. There arc 150 teams organized under United Automobile » Workers leadership and the problem '' of finding playing fields is a real one. When war production really starts, Jack's problem may be not to find a playing field but to find time. The 7- day, four shift week will be the rule throughout its 200 factories in the Q United States. The Union has asked the labor board to rule that time and a half and double time shuold be paid on Saturday and Sunday respectively, -as under the present contracts.
