While the home is hazardous for the child, the figures of a leading insurance 'cdmpany show that men are the chief victims 'of fatal home accidents.. Their chahces'of being killed are much. greater than those of 'women. Falls In'(he home are'one-third iriore 1 frequent among men .than .women. Usually the man falls oft a Voof, a 'lad-! der, a i)oron, or b balcony. Women more often fall off chairs. 'The most | important of all falls by far—namely, falling down stairs—is 'fnore frequent 1 among men than among women. Poisoning from illuminating gas is three times : ais frequent among men as among v^pmen. ihjuhy by 'firearms is infrequent, as a cause of 'death tor women in the home, but men are 'getting shot constantly while cleaning guns or handling them carelessly. The only type of home accident in which more women than men are in- jured.fatally is by burning. If there Is any single point besides carelessness which-should be controlled in preventing home accidents, it is the factor of lighting. •Plenty of Ightihg in the home, in 'th% rihop, on "the highways, and at every 'other place where human beings moye about is an important factor inVthe prevention of accidents. RAISING A FAMILY By Olive Roberto Burton } 'Children Either fcbng to Be Short or Yearn for Height ' '—Are Sensitive Over Size, So Don't Notice It B&ysJUnrVtb gr<*w tall fcnd they ddht "now *wn they begin.

Wfcen. giHs know they are not above V^ife in height, people may say whatever they Jike. To be called big "not -particularly bother them. "here lies the headache: girls bei ""to grew tall now, taller than their 'tfotisins of the same age. The boys ^ get in (heir extra inches around four- to -sixteen, 'Afid no matter how and graceful our daughter she sheds bitter tears over her 'infajSned misfortune.

She won't wear She Jpves high heels but won't t> ut W&era She has ' he has packed up that half inch over night. Nearly all boys go through this stage. And not knowing that their sons won't grow ve'ry fast until later, many parents sigh within the youngsters hearing that it is "strange Billy Is so short when all. the men in the family have been 'tall." This makes poor Bill doubly sure he's going to be a midket. He doesn't look at the chums wljo stay his height, but fixes his envious young eyes upon one or two fellows whB have broken the rule and shot up before their time. So as the .case stands now, we have these young adolescents bemoaning either their height or their lack of it. Too bad, when after all it doesn't matter in the least. It all comes out in the wash. To be sure, some will be taller than others, or shorter, but the average will be within reason. The less said about height or weight during these troublesome years, the better. These young people will worry a bit, but any reference to size, only makes it worse. They don't even W«nt reassurance very much, being suspicious of encouragement. I wouldn't say, for instance, "No, this dress wont do. Susan has sung long legs- I think she needs something to cover her up." Or, "Let me *» those seems. With my daughter putting on weight so fast, I have to ''And H6i*fAfcbiit All This Stuff?'?:. <&•! keep letting thingsh out." Observe silently. • .' As for long trousers, I shall have to let you fight that battle. But wliy all the pother about them, anyway? Long pants are worn by four-year-olds quite proudly.

The Worse the Preserit Becomes, 'the More the Pans Want the Past HOLLYWOOD.-A world in 'confusion is changing the public's taste for motion pictures. A couple of years ago, when the likelihood of war'was remote, smart comedies and problem dramas about divorce and such were popular. Today, film audiences are seeking escape in a Freudian dream' of the 'past when men were men and there was no place like home. Robert Lord, who is a writer 'and associate producer, and an Academy Award winner 'because he thinks about things like that, was telling me about the shift in entertainment values, and pointed 'to the demand for rip-roaring action pictures such as "Robin Hood," ."Valley ofahe Giants," and "If I Were King," and the 'popularity'of family films like "Four Daughters." "As everything grows more complex' these days,' Lord said, "people like to SERIAL. STORY MURDER TO MUSIC BY NARD JQNE& COPYRIGHT. 1930 NEA CAST OF 'CHARACTERS MYRNA D 6 MB EY— heroine.

RogerN from manaserahlp of the blind 'In -order to obtnlr the rccordr CHAPTEP Myrna's check and the note to Rogers, Tait immediately sought the manager of The Swingateers. As Myrna had intimated, it was going to be an unpleasant business — yet Tait found himself looking forward to it with a certain relish. He announced himself through the lobby telephone in Rogers' apartment building and was told to come to the room. There Harris Rogers met him with a wide smile and ushered him inside, "Well, Tait, I suppose you've come to tell me that you've been thinking over what I said." "I have been thinking it over," 'Tait admitted. "And you're going to take my advice, I hope?" Tait shook his head. "I'm afraid not, Rogers." He reached into his. pocket and brought out Myrna's note. Rogers colored when he saw the check, and he did not really need the note to tell him what had happened. "We may as well get it over with, quickly," Tait said. "I can take the records with me." Rogers' face grew livid. "You can't do this, Tait." "I'm not doing it. Mrs. Dombey is doing it, and I'm simply carry* ing out her orders." "But you were the one who Bug-? gested it to her," Rogers said. Tait shrugged. "I won't deny that." * * « TT ARRIS ROGERS took a step ** forward. He was beside himself with rage. "You're being a tool. If >DU know what'c good lor you, Tait, you'll get out of here right now. Without me as a manager, the band hasn't got a chance — and if Myrna insists on going through with this I'll blow things higher than a kite by telling what I know about kud Dombey." "It probably won't help any," Tait said evenly, "but on thg'day you do that I'm going to taSt-you apart. Now let's have 'thdse records." "I refuse." Rogers came closer, shoved his outstretched lingers against Tait's shoulder. "Get out, you cheap snapshot artist!" Th'e words and the shove were a bad combination, and Bob Tait lost control of his temper. He swung at Rogers and, in his sudden rage, missed wide. Then Rogers struck him hard against the side of the head. When Tait's vision cleared 'he saw Rogers standing at the other side of the room, the fireplace tongs lifted high. . "If \.ou try anything like that again." Rogers said, his voice .shaking, "Hi break your skull. Now -set out." Tait -araod heavily on a writing desk ?haii :•"• if to gain his bearings. He 'half turned toward the door. Ther he whirled back again suddenly. The chair lifted with the gesture went crashing across the roorr and into Harris Rogers. Tait followed it, literally hurling himself after it. Rogers had no chance to use his weapon, for Tait clipped him hard on the jaw. So hard th* Rogers' knees buckled slowly and he slid down on the hearth- The newspaper photographer summoned a. bell boy by phone and prepared him for the sight of the unconscious Rogers by means of a $10 bill. "Mr. Rogers and I had a little argument," Tait grinned, "about some flies of his that I was'supposed to take over. I want you to Help me down to the car with these." The boy looked dubiously at the stricken Rogers and then St the heavy file boxes. "I don't want to get into any trouble. How cic I know—" "Look here." From the floor Tait picked up Myrna's note. The bell boy read aloud: " 'Dear Mr. Roger : This is'to notify you that I a..i relieving you of your duties- «,. it nager of the band. Herew th j two weeks' advance salary in lieu of notice. Please turn over your complete records to Mr. Robert Tait. Very truly yours—Myrna Dombey.'" * * * AS he read the name, the boy's •*-*• voice changed. "That's the dame who married the torn of the swing cats—the night he was bumped off! Boy, it was a shame, killing that guy. Nobody could give it out like him. When he was in the groove, he" was strictly ding-dong, that guy." ' "I • gather," mentioned Tait, "that you're a swing fan." The young man grtiawd proud- ly. "I'm a rug cutter and waJ groover, if I do say it myself." "Then to help out Mrs. Dofnbej you'll 'give me a lif I here, won't you?" The boy's voice sank to a whisper. "Sure. I never liked that guy Rogers, anyhow." He stopped gazed open-mouthed at Rogers. "] hope he don't come to before ] get out of here." "If he does," Tait promised, "I'll pretend you just came up to see what -the racket was." "You sure you didn't hit him with anything? I don't want to get mixed up in any mess. This is a pretty good job." Tait laughed. "I just hung some knuckle: on him. He's not in very good condition. Come on, let's gel busy." The two of them were able to get the record files into the back compartment of the coupe in one trip. "Thanks a lot, fellah," said Tait. "I'd like to give ,you another. 10-spot, but I haven't seen 'em in pairs lately." "That's okay. I'd do anything that would help the girl who married Lud Dombey, If she was all right with him, she's all right with me." As Tait drove away, he thought: "Maybe I ought to remember that. The kid might come in handy," * * * nnHE records he took immedi- •*• ately to headquarters, and when Feeley saw him staggering in with them the Irishman was open-mouthed. "What's ah this?" he demanded. "Well," said Tait, "I'm the new manager of Lud Dombey's band, and I've just taken over the records from Harris Rogers. It was a little task, but I think maybe there'll be something in these that Rogers didn't tell you. And say, Dannie, 'thanks for being easy on Myrna." , "Easy on her?" roared Feeley. '"Who said I was easy on her? Don't ever get that idea. Shut that door, and let' get into some of this stuff. I doub if it helps us a damned bi., bu.' I'm getting jittery." The two .peeled ofl cheii coats and began going through ihe rec^- ords of The Swinga.sers. It was a conglomerate story that they told-r-the story of a small-town musician who grew to be the master of swing. The kid who didn't have the price of a meal but whose flower bill, when he got to be Ludden Oombey, was— "Look at this now, will you?" Dannie Feeley said. "Two hun- 3red and ten dollars for flowers in the month of May, 1937. Ana they all went to the same woman. We better see her."

The fans like war pictures With dportsrha'nship in them, but they don't like to be re-: fninded that the idea behind the whr. spirit of today is to depopulate the earth." , They'll Think About Anything But Tliem.ttlves ! In times of prosperity and ail-around good 'feeling, moviegoers are willing to accept some pretty grim tragedies and pictures about social problems. They're willing to think. But when pfeople ai'o uneasy anyway 'they dttn't want to see their jitters used as movie material. And wlidn people have to dig pretty-fat- down for theater -admissions they don't want pictures which Will send them out in still 'lower spirits. "Take even the family pictures," Bob Lord said, "and yoii find that the most succ'essful ones show an idealistic sort'of home, without discord or vase- throwing or divorce. It seems to^me that tile new generation, whether it admits it or not, really looks back with longing to the sort of home life it believes existed in the past. The fans want to be reminded oC/the present only when the present is pleasant." Of Course the pictures oC the past are not entirely accurate, because the movie-makers overlook a lot of tilings which weren't so attractive in the days of Dodge City or the James boys. "The fans wouldn't find any escape in the theater if the past were pictured as 'unpleasant," Lord said. "They want to look back on a w° r 'd without confusion. And seeing whats happening today, you can't blame them." All the executives in Hollywood have 'been in a dither about impending war. Po revery conference of Chamberlain, Hitler, Daladier, and other leaders, there has been a huddle of the rajahs of the movies, who muSt decide the territorial future of their 'own world of make-believe. In the vent of a general foreign war, Hollywood would take a huge loss on 1 the big pictures now ready for release or nearing completion. Up to now, American films have brought in about $120,000,000 annually from abroad, anil this income would slump enormously at first. Even domestic theater business would dwindle for a few months in the heat of war excitement. As for.-futur pictures, it has beeni agreed that their budgets would be slashed about 50 per cent so that they could return a profit from the United States and neutral countries.
