Hollywood Discovered A Vanishing Trait That Hollywood movie company that went to a small town in Missouri to make a picture seems to have learned something Fresh from the land of make-believe where everybody acts a part off-stage as well as on and where the sorry old rule that it's every man for himself is followed right up to the hilt, these tajovie people spent a couple of weeks or so in n place of complete, unworldly innocence. t * The populaton of this little Missouri town was increased by about one- third when the movie' people landed. Hotel facilities, of course, were com- pVtplv ii"deouate: the Hollywood visitors had to take rooms in private homes. The few restaurants did a business such as their owners had never dreamed of. But somehow these back-country Missourians didn't see all of this as a • grand opportunity to gouge the rich folks. 1 - They insisted on looking on the great mass of newcomers as their guests. Th?> movie noonle actually had to argue, and argue hard, to get their hosts to take money^for their rooms. The restaurant-keepers never thought of boost- ing their prices, but went right on selling chicken dinners for 50 cents. When home-town talent was wanted for use in mob scenes, the townsfolk weren't especially eager to take money for that, either. They were glad to help out, of course—but they didn't see any particular reason why they ought to be paid for it. And although people came frcfny miles around to watch the diferent scenes being shot, they stayed put when the directors asked them to and-kept quiet when the sound cameras were turning—and proved infinitely easier to handle than half a dozen causal visitors on a studio set back in Hollywood. AU of which was something of an eye-opener to the movie people, who arent used to that, kind of sworld.And the rest of us-who aren't any ton used to it, either-may meditate on the incident and use it as a measuring rod to gauge the short-comings of our modern society «, w^.S 16 im ?°. c f nt ' unsophisticated friendliness of that small town is the sort of thong which once was all but universal in this country rinm^V 11 * — ° f Ufe W « ich WaS n^l'to rural, small-town, hors^and- bugey America is not at all natural to the complex, citified society we have today The P a «|has grown too swift, the competitive struggle has grown too «sa^sr^£rs^si^^ to ° constantly ° biiged to so JroriTn7 l^f S0me ^ ng ' in ^veloping this modern civilization that we're so proud of-lost something precious and irreplaceable.

Hygeia^the .Health Magazine 4 I _ ir ^^ er it suits at the particular moment or not, duty is there to be faced. Late adolescence is too late to set habit. The early teens are best. Tasks need not be too burdensome, but each, child, poor or rich, should do some share. It is habit we are after. Consider Your Teeth; Pressure Machines With Shock '/ ' •'•• Absorbers <jf pressure on the material in between. For that reason, nature has provided . shock absorbers between the teeth ai-d -.the jawbone. '„* 3Ws layer of tissue between the.roots of the teeth and the jawbone is an -elastic tissue called the peridental membrane. i . Even a chud will use as much as 40 pounds of pressure in chewing. If, for any reason, the tissue around the roots of the teeth become infected or inflamed tlje pressure can produce a good deal of'pain. The roots of the teeth are covered with a thin layer Of bone-like material ealed cemen- tum. At the end of each root is a small opening for the blood vessels and the nerves that enter each tooth If you have seen a tooth that has just been removed you will remember the htte red spot that represents the place of entrance of the blood vessels and the nerve. When inflammation on the nerve, the brain gets a message from the root of the tooth that say _Pam." Pain is a warning signal. Something should be done immedia- • tely. The teeth to form before a child is born. For that reason the prospective mother must guard the teeth of her aproaehing child. The care which she gives to her own diet will concern the quality of the teeth of that child Morever, the nutrition of the child - -• Foods that are necesary for the growth of sound teeth at the right time are calcium, phosphorus, and vitamins. Vitamin D is especially important, but there is also plenty of evidence that lack of any of the essential vit- amis may seriously hamper the development of good teeth. Since milk and milk products are the most im- rwant sources of calcium, milk must always be the fundamental substance in the diet of the child. The crown of the teeth is fully formed before the first little white sign •of a coming tooth appears through the gums. The blood supplies the lime •-nd the phosphorous; thus the enamel of the tooth is developed. One expert points out that it takes two and one-half years to build the crown of a tooth before it pushes I through the gums, and decay can completely destroy it in a few months. Every child should be examined re-, ffularly for the first signs of tooth' decay, so that proress may be stopped by removing the cause of the decay! a "£ by makir >g.the necessary repairs. I The teeth of children decay because they have not been properly nourished, because proper cleanliness of the teeth has not been observed and because of deficiencies in the enamel which permit the processes of decay to start. Then neglect gives opportunity for completion of the process. The first state to go dry was Maine, in 1846. O'Brien in a Blue Work Shirt Earns $35,000 a Picture —No Yodeling Though—And He Works Only Six Months a Year—Travels for Fun HOLLYWOOD—George O'Brien is •western star who defies all the rules as well as all the villians. He yodles not, nor docs he whang a guitar. He lives in Beverly Hills, goes to Hollywood parties, and is crazy about the sea. And he actualy was an actor before he became a rootin' looter of the range. Even in his choice of leading women, O'Brien is unique, because he has had a number of prominent ones and some have apeared with him two or three times. Most cowboy heroes change feminine leads with every role. Janet Gaynor, Lois Moran and SERIAL STORY MURDER TO MUSIC BY NARD JONES COPYRIGHT. 193B NEA SERVICE, INC. By Olive Roberts Barton .Don't Allow Young Adolescent to Exercise "Local Option on His Duties in the Home When I wake up in the morning I want to know what I have to do 'at least in e general way. If someone were to give me a new order every few minutes I would go crazy and so would you, dear mother. Now, the children are at schoo most of the day. Nevertheless, they are at home a good deal, too. Frances is at home enough to know that she has to do the supper dishes. John is at liberty enough to know that he must rake Jeaves and keep the car ;clean. I speak of the young adolescent .Pi course. But younger children .should have regular tasks, too. . This is the difference between the hour-by-hour order and the understood responsibility. The repetition of the same old admonishment gets to be a bore. Knowing that a certain thin° is expected each day or week becomes acceptable; knowing ahead that plans •must be made to fit in with the program assigned. Children Dodge Responsibility I know children. They like to soldier and evade. They need remind- on geven when they know that some work awaits. Well, I should not remind them every day or every hour. They get to depend on it It doesn't pay to get mad and read them a lecture on shortcomings. It is better to say quietly, "You forgot to do the dishes, Mary. It's time for your meeting now, so set your alarm lor seven and do them in the morning, or to John, "The car still has mud on it. Father won't take it to town tomorrow. He will use the bus and take it out of your allowance." « I sound like a martinet, it is only to give an idea of method.

Apt to Be Drifters Both younger ami older adolescents! today tend to drift without anchors of responsibility to the house. Giving their all to school and outside affairs, they drtw from home heavily and are careless about repayment. I am not of then house obligations. They need to absorb some idea of duty to family if they are to be ready to marry. When young people get married they take their habits along.

This makes the situation look extremely bad on the eve of the trial. CHAPTER XXIV "TJAVE you looked for a note from Myrna?" Tait asked Anne when he reached the apartment in response to the news that Myrna Dombey hadn't returned. "Everywhere," Anne said. "But it wouldn't be like her to just leave a note and run. I can't un- good spirits." "Maybe thinking about the trial got on her nerves. Remember, she took a run-out powder on us before." Anne nodded. "I know. But that was when she was frightened and shocked. This isn't like that, She wasn't worried about Barkley's trial. She knew she didn't kill Dombey and she had faith in you and Dannie Feeley." Tait sighed. "I wish I could be sure we'll find the murderer of Dombey before Barkley gets un^ der way. Jt Doesn't look too good, Anne. And now with Myrna gone like this—" "I tell you something's happened to her, Bob. I mean—somebody must be holding her." Tait was silent a moment. "It might be a stunt of Macy's—or even of Berkley's for that matter. If he can make it look as if Myrna is trying to escape coming to answer the charge against her—" He stopped, fumbled distractedly for a cigaret. "Bob, aren't you any nearer to knowing who might have killed Dombey?" "Well . . . probably a lot nearer than we think. That is, we've turned up some suspicious circum- •itances. But as for an idea as to who and why, we're plenty in the dark. I've found a woman—and she's mixed up with Harris Rogers some way. But I've a feeling we won't get a step closer until we can find the screwy musician who wrote 'The Cat's Meow 1 ." * * * TIE grabbed his hat and stood ** up. "One thing sure, and that is we've got to get going. Can you stay here.for a couple of days —not move out of the apart- rnent?" "Yes. I'll tell the office I've a phone you, if she can. And there's the off chance that she'll show up of her own accord. If she does t I don't care what you do as long as you keep her here. If I run into anything that looks cheerful, I'll give you a ring." ' It was just as he stepped out of the Claremont that Tait had I a hunch—and he played it immediately. Instead of returning at once to his own room for some much-needed sleep, he -hurried down to the building of the newspaper where he had last been employed. But he did not take the elevator to the editorial rooms. Instead he went to the classified advertising counter on the street floor. There, unrecognized by the all-night man at the counter, he wrote out the following: THIS IS THE CAT'S MEOW. Publishers of Ludden Dombey's song hit, "The Cat's Meow," will pay $10,000 advance against royalties for similar swing band hit. Amateurs with pet songs please do not apply. This is an appeal to professionals who feel they are as good as Dombey was. Address Box . "I want that in the Personals column," Tait said. "Run it until I order it canceled." He started away, then returned. "Mind if I use your 'phone?" "Help yourself." * * npAIT picked up the instrument •*• and dialed Dannie Feeley'b home telephone number. On the other end of the line he heard the signal buzzing insistently for almost half a minute. At last the sleepy and exasperated voice oi Feeley answered. "What's up?" "This is Tait, Dannie." The voice came instantly awake. "Yes, Bob. Anything new?" "Not much. But I'm going to hit the hay for several hours and I want to keep you posted. I've found the girl with the perfume. She's Nelda Starr, lives in 1009 at the Beresford Tower. And she's a friend of Hogers'. I met her tonight at the Golden Bowl, and went with her to the Beresford. Rogers was there." "The devil you say! I'll have the dame tailed from now on." "Might be a good idea. And I've had a hunch. I'm advertising in the Personals column for our screwy swing song composer. I'm saying that the publishers of the Lud Dombey song will ofSer $10 000 for another like It.' "Sounds goofy to me. He'll never bite." "Good! Myrna may try to tele- "It's just a hunch, Dannie. I have good luck with hunches, and Jf this bird is as full of ego as I think he is he may bite." When he had allowed the detective to go back to bed Tait turned to the attendant. "If I get an answer to that .can you telephone me immediately at Elwood 6750?" "Of course." As Bob left the newspaper building he was literally in a doze, fatigued from loss of sleep and energy—and worry over Myrna. His inclination was to try to find her, but he knew that he was too dead gone to even think. He had dared not tell Dannie Feeley that Myrna was gone. It would have made Feeley wild, and in his panic he might have started a police search and told the world.. Tait felt that if Myrna was being held against her will she was relatively safe, for the killer of Dombey would not be likely to do away with the suspect surest to stand between him and the chair. The plan was probably to hold her until the police and the newspapers were in full cry, then let her be found. By then public opinion would be in such a state that almost any jury would go against her—especially with Barkley urging them. Somehow he made it to his apartment, dropped his clothes around him, and fell into bed.... * * * TIE was startled by the scream™ ing of his telephone. The room was still in darkness. Muttering under his breath, and still half asleep, Tait answered. It was the classified department of the newspaper. "We have an answer to your notice in the Personals column, sir." said a rjlpasant «ni/.o «v«,. sir," said a pleasant voice. "You requested that we telephone you." In amazement Bob realized that he had slept through the day and into the next night. "Send it to me by messenger, will you please?" He switched on the light and looked at the clock. It was almost 10! In a frenzy he telephoned Anne Lester. "Have you heard from Myrna?" Anne Lester hadn't and was almost hysterical. "Keep your chin up," Tait pleaded. "I think I'm on the track of something now. I'll keep in touch with you." In a few moments a telegraph messenger was at the door. He handed Tait a white envelope, addressed to a newspaper box number in an erratic scrawl. Tail's fingers trembled as he took it Trembled so hard that he could hardly find change with which to pay the messenger. In that smudged envelope might well be encased the solution to the murder of the torn of the swing cats. Jo it might be Myrna'e freedom, (To Be Continued) Political Announcements The Star is authorized (o make the following candidate announcements subject to the action of (he city Democratic primary election Wednesday, November 30: For Alclcrninii, Ward Four SYD MCMATH For Alderman, Ward One A. C. ERWTN Cecilo Parker each played oppsite O'Brien in three pictures. Claire Trevor, Irene Hervey, Virginia Valee, Helen Chandler, Irene Ware and Lornme Johnson were two-timers. He weathered those repeat performances .without being romantic paired with any of the actresses in the minds of fans. But after Marguerite Churchill played opposite him in "Riders of the Purple Sage," he married her in rc/\l life. Left College to Grind A Box O'Brien is 38. In 1020, when he was un nl-round athlete and medical student at SonUi Clara College, he quit to join Tom Mix ns a cameraman. Fourteen of the subsequent years have been devoted to featured and staring roles since 1929. iPeople often usk him why he gnve iip white-color parts for a dirty shirt, but there's no mystery about it in view of his present" security, his gratifying vacations betwen pictures and his hand some income. And as for the shirt, he says it Isn't dirty. True when he began making sage-brush sagas for Fox it was with ,tlu; definite understanding' that he could wear real cowboy clothes—no silk shirts with brilliant piping, and no fancy pants or masquerade chaps. He still wears blue Lev is and ordinary work shirts, but makes. a few concessions to follow when he poses for stills. The Folks Like A California Feller Being a Ccilifornian, he talks like one. There's none of the phony dialect and "Hiyah, parcls" of most of the synthetic cowhands.'. Although San Francisco bred O'Brien rcaly is an expert rider. His father was the late Daniel O'Brien, noted police chtef of San Francisco, and as c youngster George O'Brien learned horsemanship at the police school. At Uic outbreak of the World War he joined the navy and there won the light-heavyweight boxing championship of the Pacific fleet. He and Miss Churchill enjoy concerts the theater, night life and the normal pleasures of the film colony, and O'Brien is the only western star who gets around with the Beverly Hills crowd, and he's probably the envy of most of the harssed, hard-working top- notchers. Wife Helps George Pull Himself Together Recently he began complaning that their establishment was too widely scattered, what with the. home in Beverly, a couple of houses at the beach, and a stable in Culver City. Also that their daughter, Orin, 3, hadn't a big enough place to play. So Miss Churchill scouted for a ranch and found a 380-acre place in the Malibu Hills. O'Brien's only requirement was that he'd be able to see the ocean from his house, and this place fills the bill. Orin has plenty of room for romping, too. Another unusual thing about O'Brien as a horse-opera star, is that he reads a great deal and probably is the most widely traveled of all Hollywood cel- brities. Most of them haven't time, but O'Brien has to work only five or six months of each year. He has been all over Europe, China, South and Cen. tral America. Across. The Country To See One Play The pair of them are impetuous travelers. The other day he was in New Orleans" and telephoned Miss Churchhill in Hollywood, 'What are you going to do now?" asked his wife. "How about New York?" asked O'Brien. "Okey' she said, "I'll meet you at Newark Airport in the morning." They met spent the day in Manhatan, saw a play that evening, and hopped o plane back to Talkietown. Whims like that require plenty of money, but O'Brien make it. He re- cieves $35,000 per picture for RKO and is scheduled to make six this year. The Lincoln highway t connecting New York and San Francisco, is 3,384 miles long.
