HOPE STXR, BOPB, XBKAN8A8 RAISING A FAMILY i By Olive Rob*fU Barton Bwilt in 'Teen Age Is House of Comfort Later- thoughts occupy the minds of ouf young adolescents. Possibly ho other time of life is as conflict- ridcien as these early teen years. Ambition stirs strangely. Satisfaction with life as they live it wears thin. .Where before, they, as children, never questioned their lot or sought to improve it, new plans now begin to formulate. Not practical plans, not yet, with all their inexperience, but extravagant pictures of a rosy future. During these years there is a strong effort to get away from childish things. The pull is forward, not backward, although the comforts of childhood are .clung to. They pretend to be older than they lare and have been known to fib about their age. They wish to Iriipress older boys and girls. They pose a little, brag a little and shrug over things they were proud of a year ago. Now I come to a matter that I consider important in their lives, in all lives. Religion. Won't Go to Sunday School Mother you know how hard it is to get them to go to Sunday School 'or Church School. It is about as City Meat Market CHOICE K. C. MEATS, HOT TAMALES and OYSTERS. PROMPT FREE DELIVERY.

Their reason is not in the least ecclesiastical but merely that they consider one too young and the other to old. Breaking away from th^e church class, associated in their minds with childhood, and finding sermons dul or moralistic, they plead to stay ,a home. I am sepaking generally, oJ course. 1 believe the threat to spitual life comes, not in later adolescence, bul now. These are the formative years of habits, habits of thought as well as habits of living. It is the worst time the religious break could happen, ] am sure. A child's intelligence at this time is very high. He is ready for discussions. He needs wise explanations an dean stand reasonable debates on spiritual views. It matters not what your denomination is, or creed, Catholic, Protestant or Jewish— your adolescent children should be given the privilege of continuing their religious experience under persons capable wise instruction, in your own faith. Religion Comes Later On Later on > John or Mary may change their views. They may pass through phases of diblief, and defend realism. They may point out- contradictions and summon science to discredit the teachings of the little old church on Maple Street. Very well; perhaps. But I predict that someday when exuerience and trouble, as well as science itself, have all been pointing one way, the half-formed convictions of early adolescence will stir and then crystalize. I am not at all denominational. Entirely unprejudiced, I still think the religious contracts of senstive years count too much to risk their loss. If the present dark days of the world presage the future, the sanctuary of religion may provide a needed spiritual refuge.

"Are you Mr. Weeks?" Feeley asked. "Yes . . ." The man's voice was thick, curiously nervous. "I'm Elliott Farnsworth. This is Robert Tail, manager of The Swingateers. Perhaps you've heard of him?" "Oh, indeed." "Mr. Tail is naturally interested in the song we select as the swing hit. In fact, he's made arrangements with our firm to introduce it at the Golden Bowl." The man nodded. "As was done with 'The Cat's Meow'?" There was an odd intonation in the remark which sent a chill down Tail's spine. "You — you brought your song with you, Mr. Weeks?" Weeks tapped the side of his head. "Yes. It is here, with me." He smiled. "If I could play it for you?" Tait looked at Feeley. "We can go into the Golden Bowl and use the piano in there. You play, Mr. Weeks?" "Oh, yes, I play. I am not a musician like, let us say, Ludden Oombey, who couldn't read music but could only make weird noises on a clarinet." "Good • . . let's go into the Golden Bowl." * * • AS they went through the lobby and into the empty Golden Bowl, strange and ghost-like now in its quiet, Tait exchanged glances with Feeley. The detective looked grim. Plainly he could hardly restrain himself from clapping the unpleasant Weeks into custody. The man walked to the piano immediately. "I am not a singer," he said. "I will play it for you, and then recite the lyric." Tait nodded. The man began to play. As his fingers went over the keys, Ta'it's jaw 'dropped involuntarily. The tune was bad. It was trite — it would have been trite even if original, but it was not original. It was a jumble of popular songs from the last five years, so badly disguised as to be not disguised at all. Tait looked at Feeley. That individual, who never paid the slightest attention to popular songs, was Oitrahced at Weeks' simple ability to play the piano. As the musician finished, Tait nudged Feeley. The latter straightened. "Well , . , » he hesitated. "Well, it's very good." He turned to Tail. "After all, Tait, your band has to introduce it. What's your opinion?" "I think it has possibilities," Tait said. "But of course I want to hear others and make some comparisons." "You want to hear the words?" said Weeks. "That's not necessary," Tait said. "Not now, at least. A lyric can always be worked over, if the tune has the stuff." Weeks' eyes narrowed. "You mean to infer that perhaps this tune I have just played does not have the stuft?" "I didn't say that," Tait answered. The tall musician arose from the piano bench. "Listen," he said, "I said I could tell you something of interest about this very popular song, this 'The Cat's Meow.' I wrote that song! Do you understand?" Weeks' eyes were glittering. "I wrote it! And I can show the agreement Dotnbcy made with me. An agreement which he did not keep. It was a song which made thousands — for Dombey. And now, Mr. Tait, do you know what is going to happen? You are going to give me a place in your band and let me introduce my new song. You are going to do it because, if you refuse, I will make a public announcement which will ruin your band." * * * could have kicked himself •*• senseless. What had he blundered into? What had he done just when it looked as if the band might come out from under its obligations? The recording company ' had been staved of! only temporarily, and if this mad man should blab, then Montgomery of the recording firm would swoop down, too, for Dombey 's lapses of contract. "If what you say is true," Tait said slowly, "we naturally want to do the right thing." "Then I am with your band, beginning tonight?" Weeks asked. "And I will introduce the song?" Tait shuddered. The piece Weeks had just played would ruin a second-rate band in the most unsophisticated of tank towns. "I'm afraid we wouldn't have time for rehearsal enough to do it justice. Suppose you played 'The Cat's Meow' instead? The crowd will like that, because we haven't used it since—^slnce, Dombey was killed." . "Very well." The musician drew himself straighten "That will bo enough, for the present." He looked at Farnsworth. "But 1 think It would be well for Mr. Tait to convince you that my new song is worth $10,000 advance against royalties." Feeley turned a little pink, and Tait put in quickly, "I'm sure Mr. Farnsworth will give it every consideration." He held out his hand. "I'll see you tonight, then, Mr. Weeks. The band will need no rehearsal for 'The Cat's Meow.' I'll have 'Torchy' Stephens arrange for a piano solo for you on it. I think it'll be a hit." Gravely Weeks shook hands with Tait and Feeley, _bowed low, ;md walked across the afternoon emptiness of the Golden Bowl. The two stood looking after him until he had gone out the wide doors which led to the lobby. Feeley took a step forward, and Tait restrained him. "I'll take the job of following him, Dannie. Is that okay with you?" Feeley nodded. "Sure. But don't let him slip. That's our man, Bob. He's done murder and attempted murder—and now he's going to try 'a little blackmail. . . . That wasn't a bad piece he played, though, was it?" "It was awful, Dannie. And the fact that it's awful has me stumped. The guy that wrote 'The Cat's Meow' couldn't possibly write a song as sour as the one he just played." "Then you figure this guy is a phony?" "I don't know," Tait said. "I'll sec you later." Ho hurried out of the Golden Bowl and into the lobby of the Pacific-Plaza. He glimpsed Weeks going through one of the swinging doors of a side entrance. Tait rushed after him and then, spotting him among tho sidewalk crowd, slowed down. * » * TTE followed Weeks for blocks, -""*• grew increasingly astonished to find that the man was heading not for the poorer part of town but for the section where were built the swankiest apartment hotels. "If he lives in this seer lion," Tait mused, ".lurrying after the long-legged musician, "there's something screwy, that's certain." Suddenly it occurred to Tait that he was in the block which held Harris Rogers' apartment. Even as the thought struck him, Weeks turned into the building. Tait waited on the sidewalk until Weeks should have time to take the lift. Then he followed, and went straight to Harris Rogers' door.

BROWN & 00. ^" W W * Hope, Arkansas How Boy Should Behave on 'Date' Here Is Some Advice for Boys and Girls on First Date By JOAN DURHAM AP Feature Service Writer How should a boy behave on his irst date? The answer is: Be as polite, charm- ng and entertaining as possible. You may make a few mistakes, of course. But don't worry too 'much about them and don't draw atetntion o them. The chances are your girl is just as much in doubt as you are. For that reason she'll feel a lot more comfortable if her young man seems to know ll the answers. Her Parents She — and her parents, too — will judge you by all sorts of little things. The vay you open the door to let her go iut first; the way you rise when her mother enters the room; the way you address her father as "Sir." Have the evening planned before •ou ask her for the date. Ask her if he's busy -Friday night. If she isn't, ask her if she'd like to go to a movie . . or the clasB dance ... or the club mtertainment. If your parents agree to lend you the famly car, don't drive up in front of her house and honk the horn. She'll find out you have the car soon enough. Help her to her seat in the ca before you get in. If you go to the movies and there's a line at the ticket booth, suggest that she wait in the lobby for ydu. Then as you enter the lobby take off your hat and throw your coat over your arm. The Coat Problem When you are seated, offer to help her take off her coat. Hold the left side of her coat collar with your left hand, and the right side with your right hand. When she has reW.oved both arms, be sure to arrange the coat across the back of her seat so it can't slip down and get wrinkled. Then sit with your own cat and hat across your knees — or put them in a vacant adjacent scat. After the movie, if you like, you may offer to take her to get something to eat or drink. But don't keep her out until all hours. When you get her home don't stay too long. And— final hint— whether you had a good time or not, tell her you did. You don't have to ask her for any more dates but you do want to leave her feeling happy about the evening. For remember, she may be as worried about her first date as you are.

The Picture of Ln Ounrdln - liircc Lives Packed Into His Story One of the prerequisites of the buildup of n national political figure is a "life story" book about him. Fliorello H. La Gunrdin has his now. It is "This Man La G-uardla" (Dutton: $3), and it does n breezy job of introducing New York's tnfeyor, twice victor over Tammany, to n United States that Is likely to want to know him better. Lowell M. Limpus and Burr W. Leyson, the co-authors, have not written and have not pretended to write either a definite and scholary biography or n discussion of political principles. They have whipped together n running journalistic account of Ln Guardin that leaps along as Impulsively and unprcdictably as the man himself. But what n man! American-born of Italian parents, reared in army posts of Arizona and all over the country, grabbing a job ns war correspondent in the Spanish War as n mere boy, becoming American consul in Austria, fighting through to mastery of law and several languages, going to Congress, voting for war in 1917 and then fighting In it as a flyeiCon the Italian front, Ln Guardia had filled up three lifetimes before he began the public career that is part of the scene today. Though ad'mHtcdly n friendly and uncritical picture, this portrait of one of the most vital figures of today will help ninny to understand the firebrand who has blazed through Congress and New York City politics, shedding plenty of light and heat.
