They fuss and holler about laving to get up and out, .study for lecent marks,, and all the rest of it, but when they-s^e every other victim on the street riding in the same boat, hey take; it as it comes and charge t up to fate. It seems to me there is less hooky played today than there was ten years ago. However, if you have a chronic unner-off, mother, and dread to think what is going, to happen in the months ahead,: with Willie's record against him and his probation worn thin, you and'I might get together now and talk diagnosis. Why does Willie skip school and hang around the. wharf, jumping barges or begging to get into pilot to watch the compass and houses charts? Boys Want Action Because boys have a terrific yen for things being done. Not the proxy summer-up of print in books, but life in the making. Whether Willie loves boats and river- life, or a steel sky- scraper in the process of welding, auto engines being decarbonized, or just watching Mr. Hobbs putting up prescriptions behind the partition of the drug store, he is indulging some inner 'longing for the practical, be sure. What ; he goes after depends on himself, his own particular interest. The wonder is that boys don't take French leave from books often than they do. It isn't fair to compare school with a paying job, like Dad's, or housework that must go on. because there isn't a whole lot of incentive from their point of view to work fqr< the distant reward of passing to more work. j Most boys aren't real ravers and slackers usually, but merely out to and install model trains. Players are more inclined to order everything ready-built, paying hundreds of dollars for signal systems and control boards, up to S100 for engines, and S20 or more each for cars. The toy railroad used in "Four's a Crowd," a picture not yet released, attracted visitors from nil studios to the Warner set. It was rented from the makers, but I'm told it later was sold intact to an executive for S1GOO to be placed in his garden. Most miniature railroad fans, like Crosby, do have children whom they intencle to amuse. But there's nothing childish about the "relief train" which one fellow has had installed to rush refreshments from his hpuse to the garden,and swimming pool, where! guests gather. Tank, cars carry differ-' •ent-kinds of drinks, and gondolas bear glasses and ice ; cilbes. • The Prliice of^Slum-Gets Carted Not a recent incident,, but one which until now has been successfully shushed, involved the visit to Holly- learn things on their own. The host ^ ood of one of the-young princes of] thing I can think of is to fill up their' - lam ' Suiclios always vie with each free hours ' with sightseeing.

To mills- and plants, if they will let you in; to soe bridges .being built and the place where the fire was; to ball games and airports and farms. You have Sunday and part of Saturday, don't you? Or maybe you have a friend not so tired. The boy wh oplnys hooky may stay in school if he knows there is a treat aheead for off hours and holidays. He won't be so famishes for real sights and real sounds. He may learn to think that a fair exchange is no robbery, and stick at lessons better.

'Some of them are, though. Gary Cooper, for example, and Jesse Lasky, and Bing Crosby, who pretends that his elaborate railroading is done entirely for the amusement of his smal sons. Tyrone Power, who likes toy trains and doesn't care who knows it said he's rather not disclose the names of Hollywoodsmen who secretly are miniature fans. But he gave me a circular issued by "The Roundhouse," which is the local headquarters foi enthusiasts. The Roundhouse is owned by a movie-orchestra conductor named Jerry Joyce, and a complicated system involving U'acks of two gauges rum through several rooms under the con trol of a central switchboard. Joyce had tracks and tunnels running all over their basement. Only a few obscure Hollywood technicians have the skill and time to make tour of the lot at 20th-Fox. j# secretary in Dan-yl ^aiuick'.s-of- fice telephoned the studio tnm.sporta- tibn department to send a car to a local hotel "to pick up the Prince of Siam." A clerk in the transportation department interpreted this as an order to pick up "the prints of 'Siam.' " Films are called prints, and the clerk assumed that a picture titled "Siam"i had been exhibited at the hotel the! previous evening. So he sent a truck, j The error was discovered fifteen minutes later, and a limousine was rushed to overtake the truck, but it was too late. The first driver had wheeled up to a .side entrance, demanded "the prints of 'Sium,' " and had been astonished .when, after some discussion, a natty little brown-skinned man and a companion had got into his car. A hotel executive hurried out and explained the mistake, but the amused prince insisted upon riding to the studio in the truck and chatting all the way. Whose Brain's Doorman t?

Bacon had a costly railroad science of benetics. The human being represents a certain contribution from each of his parents. As far as we know, the nature of each parent's contribution is not definitely established by any law of science. It seems rather to depend almost wholly upon chance. Each of the parents may contribute certain material. Yet upon these very materials depend not only the individual's health but also his character, his personality, the powers which he will develop later in life—indeed his entire future. It has been discovered that the number of chromosomes from the female is different from that coming from the male. In the female the number of there begin to be differences depending upon tiie number of chromosomes 'hat are present. As the development occurs the individual becomes determined toward the male or the female .side-, and certain glands develop which are characteristic of sex. As growth continues, the material turning from these glands continues to determine quite definitely the characteristics of the human being. It is known that the secretions do have such . system in a house which he sold to the Coogans, and that got Jackie interested. While Joan Blondell was the wife of Cameraman George Barnes they coveries of modern medicine is the isolation of each of these secretions.

Linda Gordon turned oft the main highway, in the second-hand j car she had bought to carry her home. She was taking a short cut, which would carry her past the Radford Farm. "It'll just be our luck, Jerry," she said to the Scottie by her side, "to meet Bruce Radford tonight. Now here's the sharp turn, before we come to the creek—" She broke off as her car gave a quick lurch. "Oh, darn!" She was skidding on newly laid gravel, the car was swerving around—it came to a sudden stop against a tree looming in the headlight's glare. The impact threw her across the wheel. "Darn—darn!" she exclaimed straightening up. Her head had struck the windshield's top. Jerry, thrown to the floor, gave a yelp of pain. ""' ' ' - take it? , "Oh, hush!
