The Star disclaims responsibility for the safe-keeping or return of any unsolicited manuscript*"I Didn't Raise My Boy to Be a Plugger . . ." A NY proud parent who knows what it is like to raise promising infant and see him turn into n drug store cowboy should be able to sympathize with Dr. Lee De Forest. Dr. De Forest is the father — or one of the fathers, anyway — of modern radio. And when he celebrated his 65th birthday recently, reporters who dropped in to find out what he thought of his brain child were greeted with this reply: "Isn't it sickening?" Then Dr. De Forest went on to explain that he has, after all, suffered the common fate of parents. That is, his promising child didn't turn out at all the way its father had expected it to. ¥ * * M \]OT only are the programs poor, too much swing and AN crooning," Dr. De Forest went on, "but the commercial interruptions are maddening. It isn't at all as I imagined it would be. "The way I envisioned it, stations would have been specialized — one would play symphonic music and opera : another, educational, and another, dramatics, and so on. In that way you'd know exactly what you'd hear at any point on the dial. There is no denying that Dr. De Forest had a fair vision, and it is equally undeniable that what he got missed the- vision by a thousand miles. But if it is any comfort to him, he suffered not only the common fate of parents but also the common fate of American inventors. An inventor in this unpredictable land of ours never knows just what his invention is going to do when it is turned loose in the world. * * * /E aren't a particularly orderly people, and we have a great way of giving the people what they want. It happens that more people in this land want swing music, crooning, hillbilly comedies, and gangster drama than want highbrow music; consequently, that is the fare that is provided. Sooner or later we shall probably improve things a bit. Public taste does rise, slowly but surely. When it has risen -far .enough, its rise will be reflected in the popular arts — radio, movies, and other media of expression. Until it does, those media may be the dispair of the cultured — but there won't be much of. anything the cultured can do about it. The Expression Trails OOMETIMES you get the feeling that all the fundamental -O questions of human conduct were settled a long time ago. Ffcme judge hands down an opinion, then, and it comes to you that if the fundamentals have been settled in your own mind, many of them remain undetermined in the law that may actually enforce them in your life. A child's obligations to his parents in the matter of support were defined just 'the other day for Virginians. The Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals ruled that the duty of anyone over. 16 and possessed of sufficient means was not merely to keep the breath of life in his parents if they were destitute but to maintain them according to certain standards of comfort. This is certainly what any person of any decency or natural affection takes as much for granted as his ancestors : rtid, but the law, which grows out of man's concept of justice, trails behind the concept. And what a pity that all of man's institutions do exactly that! If they could only spring into being full-grown as the truth of the concepts behind them become universally ap pai-ent, there would not now, for instance, be war in the midst of universal abhorrence of it, but a peace protected by some social instrument as expressive of man's notion of justice as, say, the law of Virginia. A Book i Day By Bruc* Writer Devotes Self to Slumber A rare little book, ns serious ns science can mske it but interwoven at the same time with n finely spun humor is Ray Giles' "Sleep" (Bobbs-Merrlll: $1.75), with tips from 101 famous people Mr. Giles, whom you may remember for his timely volume, "How to Bent the High Cost of Living," has been thinking about this problem of sleep for most of a lifetime. Wherever he went he started people talking about their sleep, nnd even the doctors nnd the psychologists checked in Mr. Giles climaxed his study will a survey of the sleeping habits o the great and near-great. The results of all this he has corralled between the covers of his new hook. It's safe bet that you will no put it down till you have reachet liis last page—and pleasant dreams For you find there is u great dea more to this business of sleeping thai you had ever dreamed. There are, fo instance, the question of air, exercise night-snacks, night-caps, pillows, pos iliun, bedtime blues, bctter-days-to make-better-nighls, and so on ad in fin Hum. Mr. Giles is convinced that regard less of your aye or physical con dilion, or how you sleep now, you can make your hours in bed still more rewarding. Before you finish his book he has convinced you. It should be added, however, that his curious homemade illustrations have a grout deal to do'with this, not to mention tin- lips from 101 famous people.— P.G.F. Hold Everything!

One was merely a movie-radio training school which operated locally. The other, which died a-borning, was much more ambitious. It was a scheme whereby screen aspirants, young and old, all over the country, were to be sold ihe doubtful privilege of having their pictures printed in a periodical or catalog which was supposed to reach the desks of major studio casting directors. It wouldn't be necessary to come to Hollywood at first. One would merely send in some money and a photograph and then sit back and wait for a wire from Paramount or Metro.

Frequent Relief of Pain May Lead to Neglect of Right Ulcer Treatment (This la the second of tliree articles In which Dr. Fishbein discusses ulcers of the stomach and duodenum.) LTcers of the duodenum occur about fi'.'.ir times as often as in the stomach, .'icrne investigators are inclined to believe that the percentage of ulcers in the duodenum is even higher. Doctors, who are usually under a great deal of nervous strain, have- ulcers of the stomach and duodenum with great frequency, and surgeons seem tob e even more often affected than other doctors. Ulcers of the stomach occur more often in some families than in others. This has been related in some instances to the body build, but in Other cases it seems to be associated with the nature of the stomach and the nervous system of the people concerned. The greet majority of ulcers of the stomach occur where the stomach empties into the duodenum! This is called the pylorus. Nearly all ulcers of the duodenum occur in the part closely adjacent to the stomach. These ulcers are exactly like ulcers that might occur anywhere else in the body 93, to rexample, on the skin of the legs. The mart constant and significant symptom of ulcer is pain.

She felt freer, more able to express herself, she decided, sitting across from him in the hotel dining room where he insisted upon taking her. "A first time should be done in style," he explained, when she suggested a smaller place. "After all this is quite an event for me. Maybe you don't know that." There was no need for pretense vith Tom. Sometimes in the old days wit'« Larry she had had to )lay up. LarryViad a way of be- ittling the time-accustomed ways she and all the crowd she had grown up with did things. For a little while she forgot that life was changed. The time was passed quickly, too quickly, for she still faced a blank wall. She felt that knowing Tom better had not offered her a way out. Could she turn to him now and tell him about Larry? One moment he seemed so kind, so competent, that asking his advice should be easy, and then a remark reminded her that he was still all prosecutor. Still trying to find the courage, she saw him look at his watch, self, but with no knowledge of how he could do it and save his honor. Hope and fear came on each other's heels in rapid succession after that. The trial started. Tom instructed the jurors in their duty. was worried, and she could sense the amusement on Church's face. * * * CHE looked up with relief when Shelia dropped in to visii that afternoon.

Not 10 feet away Larry sat with his attorney and in the background wore the usual courtroom sitters: relatives, friends, witnesses, curiosity seekers, and around the bench itself reporters came and went. Papers carried the story on the front page again that morning. Headlines stood out. "Kent trial starts—" Pat leaned over Desk Sergeant O'Shea's shoulder to read quick sentences. The defense would attempt to show Kent was on the other side of town at the time of the accident, Church declared. Circumstantial evidence alone would prove a weak case own world. "I've wanted to come here and .see you for ages," her cousin said, her big childish brown eyes shining with interest. "And then along comes a whole hall' day free.

Shu said to forget work, that the kids could go with the eighth grade toucher, and so here But this was only part of the plan. The concern expected to make its heaviest sugar from the further exploitation of its sucker list. Anyone unwary enough to subscribe to the come-on scheme almost certainly would be movie-mad, and therefore easy pickings for vendors of trick beauty preparations, correspondcence courses in screen acting, and other terns remotely relating to Hollywood. Such advertising was to have been sent regularly to clients along with 'confidential news letters" purporting to give the real inside dope on what on in the film colony and the tnlunt market. In ;\ bold move to secure the endorsements of studios, the backers offered to let the studio publicity departments write the "confidential" reports, praising their players and pictures as they desired. The .scheme did not receive industry approval. However, too many enterprises do receive at least the tacit endorsements of some movie companies. The aforementioned Strecn Juveniles magazine is a good example. The Brick Looked Like Solid Cold. The Hays Office, which has representatives who investigate and pass on the merits of all such things, always has disapproved National Talent Pictures Corp.. and its official publication. Studio publicity departments repeatedly have been warned not to co-operate in any way, and thu Hays Office never has issued to ihe magazine any credentials for admission to the studios In spite of that, the magazine has been jam-packed with photograph* taken by studio cameramen, and with illustrated articles about major stars and prominent players.

If the pain becomes very se vere, there may be vomiting. An interesting observation is the fact that the taking of food usually relieves pain. The pain usually comes from one to three hours after eating when the stomach is empty. For that reason it has been described as "hunger pain." However, it is also known that hunger itself may cause twitch- ings of the stomach which are painful. Many people have lound that the taking of baking soda relieves the pain j what to do.

Ulcers are dangerous because they m;iy result in hemorharge or bleed- int;. The ulcer may go all the way through the wall of the stomach or the duodenum, and thus a secondary peritonitis may develop which is even more serious than the ulcers.

How much did anyone other than she know about the true facts? And what would Tom think of her if he ever did find out? Each day his kindness, his gentleness reminded her of that. Each day she became more conscious of his caring, and of her own desire to live up to his belief. Too quickly the trial date came. She moved in a world without order. She felt frozen, insensitive to life. She clung blindly to the traffic war, and the police commissioner dt-mcindud action. Yes, as the police uround the court so aptly put' it, the heat was on. There must be action, and Tom was the one to teach the public that heedless driving would result in severe punishment. Today was his, and today he must start on a hard lesson. Yet as the pattern was woven there in the court Pat could feel an uneasiness on Tom's part. After the first details had been gone through and they were down to the serious business of questioning witnesses, the girl could see just how clever Church was. Quietly he would talk to the man or woman on the stand, then suddenly break in with a sharp question that broke their curtain answers, confuse them as to distance, degree of light and dark condition of the pavement, how far ahead they themselves couk see.

Sheila's naive excitement would ordinarily have only amused her, jut now she watched the brown eyes sparkle and her face grow animated a:; she talked with Tom. Pat felt a stab of jealousy. It frightened her, made her ashamed and glad for an excuse to go into her own otlice. There she looked at herself in her tiny mirror. Hard to believe that such a horrible weakness should show up in KC-lf. And toward Shelia of all Deople in the world: Shelia who was as near and dear as a sister, the same girl with whom she had played and dreamed through school years, the same girl to whom she had first confided her love for Lurry, the girl who was to be her bridesmaid when the wedding took place. She didn't have any right to think of Torn us her own. She belonged to Larry, and now of all times she should think of him ::iid what she could do to help him. But when she went back to her table she could feel a little pulse hammer in her throat and a dull beat deafen her ears as she watched Torn lean toward Shelia while lie explained some statute in a law book. (To Be Continued) What say we take in a club? Or go over to Tom's for bridge?" Off they go, and the second act of 'Married Years" is on. It is good to be out again and in circulation. People flock around. "We'll have to do this." "Let's arrange to go there.' "We'll have to see more of you people. Make it Saturday ninght.' And starved for a little gaiety, both Jim and Anna begin to make up for all the midnight mustard plasters, bottle-warming, didy-changing and croup kettles.

It's impossible for studios to know what eventually will happen to the thousands of still pictures which are printed and distributed through many routine channels. He (<ot Endorsements at Ten Cents A Head The most damaging use of stills is their sale to advertisers in foreign countries. For years, a certain foreign correspondent had a corner on the lucrative racket.
