CHAPTER VI AS Judy Alcott walked out of ••"• the Coronado Hotel, with the memory of Marvel Hastings' white face and narrowed green eyes throbbing inside her, she thought slowly, "I ought to hate her. But I don't. I feel sorry for her. She's in love with him, and she's so unsure. . . ." But remembering what Marvel had flung at her, in that cool, arrogant voice, she flushed. "You're in love with him." It hadn't taken Marvel long to see that. Because she was jealous. Jealous, and unsure. The ships came back in four days. Judy stood on the pier, watching the liberty boats put into the water. And a few hours later Jack came to see her. She had not seen him since that night aboard the battleship, when they had quarreled. He had no telephoned. She had felt humiliated because she knew that h must have heard Dwight was going to marry a rich girl from the east; and so he had known that Judy had lied to him. But despite her consciousness that their next meeting would be embarrassing, she had missed him in a curious fashion. She had come to depend so much on those casual evenings when he dropped around and they danced to the radio or sat on the porch, idly talking. So now she was glad to see him, and yet intermingled with her gladness was the memory of that lie. She wondered if he would refei to it. But he did not. He only said, "Hello, Judy," and she said, "Hello. You look all in!" He did. He was tired. It was in the suddenly deep lines of his face; in the eyes lhat looked worn and heavy; in the way his long legs sprawled out. She said, "flown a good many weary miles?" and he grunted. Then she asked him how the four days at sea had gone. He said, "Some little whim of the admiral's. Working out a pet notion, or something. Not regular maneuvers, but the battleships bad target practice, and we had scouting and meeting the patrol feoats and all that" Yet the look on his face meant nore than mere routine flights. There was more to it than that. She asked swiftly, "Casualties?" "One," he admitted reluctantly. He told her that a light fighter off the Enterprise, spiralling into :he clouds, had some way gotten into trouble. Not engine trouble, for the mechanics checked the ships too carefully before each flight. "Maybe he got rattled. He never did fly into formation." He had nose dived, spinning into the sea, and one of the big flying boats had come down on the choppy water to render assistance. "Only," he said carefully, not looking at her. "It was too late." She licked her suddenly dry lips. "Who was it? Anyone I know?" "No. It was a kid recently transferred from Pensacola." * * * npHAT meant he had not been flying long. She felt a little sick. There were not so many casualties now as there used to be, her father said, proudly. The navy was building some real flyers. But there were enough so that you couldn't ever forget the bravery of men who flew. Enough so that Jack must have known, in a swift, awful flash as he watched that other man going down, that maybe some day it might be his own ship that dived like that, straight into green water. . . . Every man in the squadron faced that possibility. They were gallant, joking about it, or simply ignoring it. But it was there. And the wives of the men who piloted airplanes must live always under the shadow of disaster. Judy thought of Diane Bell, who never slept nights when Bill was on duty. Diane had said once, "They die a thousand times. Over and over and over in your mind. And then at last—the real time—when it actually happens." She had added, "Maybe it's a relief. To know it's over. You don't have to worry any more." Judy touched Jack's hand swiftly. Her eyes sought his. "Promise me you'll be careful, Jack!" He patted her reassuringly. The tired eyes came alive. "I'm careful. I—I didn't think you'd care much—though—" "Of course I care!" she said. The doorbell rang. She leaped to her feet. "That must be Dwight." "Dwight?" Jack's face was suddenly still and guarded, and the things they had said that night on the battlewagon seemed to corne alive between them. "1 thought he—" Judy explained swiftly, "His girl flew here from the east, you know. But when he had to shove off, she got mad, and ran away. I guess he—he went to her hotel first and he—he wants to ask me about it." "But what do you know about it?" Jack was frowning. * * * '"PHERE was no .time to explain A further. She opened the door, and Dwight, his handsome face flushed and his eyes bright with impatience was asking, "What happened to Marvel? She's checked out of the Coronado!" "I know it," Judy said quietly. "Won't you come in and sit down. I'll tell you . . . what little I know. . . ." Dwight greeted Jack, and sat down on the sofa beside him. Judy had not expected Jack to be present when she gave Marvel's message to Dwight, but there was no help for it now. She said, "I went there, as you asked me to, Dwight. I—I tried to explain to her. But she wouldn't listen. She was very angry. She kept saying that you could have stayed if you'd wanted to. I explained and explained—tried to make her see—but she said she was leaving for Los Angeles and nev:r coming back." Paul Harrison in Hollywood War Scares Drive Movies to Gallop Away in the Horse Opera HOLLYWOOD.—War news and war scares, purges, massacres and conquests arc providing no material for a Hollywood whose neutrality of sentiment is enforced by foreign markets. But world events are setting the dramatic pace for pictures. The customers want action and conflict, so the movies are falling back on the single safe expedient that's left to thorn- westerns. Westerns are safe because they have American heroes and villains, and because even the most conscious-stricken foreign censor is unable to discern any unfavorable parallel between the conquests in this country and the territory-grabbing of modern militarists in Europe and Asia. With about $12,000,000 worth of horse opera in production or preparation, Holfywood is taking on the scenic aspects of a frontier town. Leading men and character actors are letting their hair and mustaches grow, and the cocktail cubbyholes locally known as night clubs are full of cowboys and stupnt 'm'en who are in the money. And every riding academy and bridle path looks like a stellar rodeo as moviemen and their womenfolk practice sitting a western saddle. Two-Gun Taylor On The Frontier Robert Taylor, who as a great lover used to turn the other check—for a kiss—now is a two-fister son of the frontier of 1850 in "Stand Up and Fight," a story of the railroads' early penetration of the west. Tyrone Power's impersonation of Jesse James and his guerillas is full bloodshed and is more nearly a straight historical document than an idealistic portrait. He's no Robin Jimmy Cagney, on the other does do some robbin,—hood- Hood. hand, winking in "The Oklahomana Kid." And Errol Flyn has traded in his bow and arrow for a six-gun and soon will be a frontier marshal blasting his way through 'Dodge City.' Cecil DeMill's next epic will be behold an army of straight backs, heads set perfectly on fine shoulders and very very few bowed legs. Yet here and there we see the exception. Many a boy and girl with fine start in life has lost his average along the way. AH the gym work they get in school won't help, it seems. They slouch when they walk and not only folow their noses but their foreheads. We Jnight blame poor posture on school and long hours of study. Perhaps it does have its effect. But children, of old studied longer hours than ours and came out with fine straight boddies. William Pe'nn at nine, studied and recited in seventeenth century England from six a.m. to six p.m. Yet he was a fine figure of a man. And others we might mention did the same. It cannot be all school, then can it? Chairs, Not Diet And it isn't food, for most youngsters of this age eat their weight in nourishment. It is chairs. Chairs and the way they sit on them. Our chairs today are too comfortable. When Ida May or Josheph come in from school, they seek a couch and loll. When they sit in the "club" chair they hook their legs over the sides and slide their backbones into arcs against sotf upholstery. It won't hurt them a bit if they can get up and stay straight. Put if there is a tendency to bend then they must learn to sit as others sit, witout favoring their bodies. It does no good to talk. You cannot talk a boy or girl into posture. But reminding does some good fi they are backed against a wall and told to touch it with head, shoulders a/id calves. Once a mother took a snap of her daughter beside a friend. The comparison shocked the girl into holding her head up. "Union Pacific"—another story of the winning of the west by the railroads. This one will be well seasoned with Indians. Even the great "Mister" Paul Murry and Lloyd Nolan—a couple this moment is studying the script of "Juarez" to build up the mood of a hard-riding gore-spatted hero who shook of fimperislism in Mexico. Cowboys of The P.uroplc Broodloom Paramount is planning "The Lives of a Texas Ranger" for Fred McMurry and Llyod Nolan—a couple of drawing room cowboys if you ever saw one. On the fire at 20th-Fox is a remark of "The Cisco Kid" which which gave Warner Baxter his bik in 1931.' The hardy Mr. Baxter, who is 45 years old, will be in there again as the rootin' tootin' kid. 'Destiny Rides Again," a flicker that starred Tom Mix a good many years ago, is to be filmed again by Universal, with Jimmy Stewart doing the riding this time. Walter Wagner is preparing a big western called "Stage Coach," starring Claire Trevor and a male cast not yet selected. Now ready for the screen is a super-western with an English accent—"Gunga Din." It's a star-spangled story of India, of course, but the elements are essentially those of domestic cow drama. Of modern westerns, there are only "The Lady and the Cowboy," with Gary Cooper in spurs and. sombrero, ind 'Out West With the Hardys," which is largely concerned with Mickey Rooney and a mule. Carole Lombard is anxious to appear in a western, and so is Clark Gable. Greta Garbo is about the only star who hasn't been mentioned for some saga of the sagebush. Italy Don't Like Duce As I [cud Idiot So goes the cycle. Only picture now in production which concerns curent world afairs is "Idiot's Delight," with Norma Shearer and the aforementioned Mr. Gable. Dictator-dominated foreign countries, especially Italy, have raised Cain about this strong story of mntrital madness—especially as it spems to point an identifying finger at Mousolini ns the head idiot. How much of the original substance wil be left when it reaches the creen is anybody's guess. Another war story recently was bought by Pnroumount of 1939. It deals with a hypothetical future invasion of North America by some foreign power and it was written by Capt. William Cox of the U. S. Chemical Warefarc Service, who should have <i lot of ideas on the subject. With the Hempstead Home Agent Melva Bullington "Leaving? " D w i g h t's head jerked forward, and he cried, "For God's sake, couldn't you have talked a little sense into her? I wasn't off on any pleasure jaunt!" "I know it. But she just wouldn't listen." Dwight's face seemed to be growing paler. He said, "Los Angeles. Well, I know where she is. With those friends of hers. I'll go after her." But then he said, "Still, you shouldn't have let her go, Judy." "What could I do to stop her?" Judy asked. Dwight said, with an odd laugh, "You could have stopped her, all right. Girls can get along with one another if they want to. Maybe she—she sort of got the idea you didn't care much." "Care?" Judy was suddenly blazingly furious. "I cared enough to go there when you asked me to. I cared enough to stick my nose into something that wasn't any of my business. What else could I do?" Jack Hanley said quietly, "As a matter of fact, Campbell, Judy did entirely too much as it was. If I'd known she was going ovei> there to explain navy necessity to your fiancee, I'd have stopped her. That's a subject you ought to ac* quaint her with yourself. Judy has had grief enough on your aO count, Campbell." "Grief?" snapped Dwight. " what do you mean by that?" (To Be Continued) A Book » Day By BTUM Book On Christ A Lifetime Work It is obviously futile to try to evaluate the results of 40 years' research in a few concise paragraphs, yet that is the problem Hall Caine leaves the reviewer in his 1300 page book, "Life of Christ" (Doubleday, Doran: ?3.50). Here, certainly, is one of the most ambitious writing projects recently conceived, so sweeping in fact that Caine was still at it when he died. He had spent nearly 40 years in close study of the life of Jesus, had made many trips to Palestine, prepared a number of translations. When he died he' left a 3,000,000 word manuscript which took eight years to corelate anc reduce to 650,000 words. What is here that is not covered in the more than 3000 books on Christ already published? Just this: a highly personalized, readable account of the life of Jesus Christ. And to the scholarly Hall Caine Jesus is a truly living personality, although he is inclined to discount some of the miracles, such as the feeding oJ the 5000 and the walking on the sea. Tiie result is that Mr. Caine has given us a life of Christ 'stripped, as he says "of the assertions of all the ages since his deaht." But do not consider for one minute that you have here a lesser Christ. It is not too much to place his book among the best written about Christ in modern times. And assuredly it is the «i«st exhaustive veceutly,—P. G. F Finishing Floors Floors finished with shellac, varnish, or floor seal, combined with war, are becoming increasingly popular with home demonstration club women in Hempstead county. According to their reports, the labor saved in caring for them is one of the big points in their favor. Such floors should never be scrubbed with water. Sweeping or dry mopping should be all that is necessary, according to Mrs. Ida A. Fcnton, extension economist'in home management, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. To make « good dry floor mop, she recommends barely dampening a soft cotton mop with a mixture consisting of three parts of kerosene and one part of paraffin oil. When the mop becomes dirty is should be washed in hot soap and water, dried, and again' dampened with the mixture of kerosene and paraffi noil. Exceptional patches of dirt that cannot be removed in this way may be taken off by rubbing the area lightly with fine steel wool moistened with turpentine. Where the finishe is one of the new floor seals, badly soiled spots, such as gray spots where water has stood on the floor for a time, can be sanded by hand, patched with seal, and buffed with a pad of steel wool. Then, if the rest of the floor is waxed, they should be waxed. Varnish finish, if kept in good condition, offers protection against water scars; but if it does become stained it is not so toasily repaired, she said. Mrs. Fenton recommends renewing a wax finish every 4 to 6 months, depending on the amount of wear on the floor. Mattress-Making Saturday, November 12, 1938 Movin Day This unusual picture of the crack Koynl Household Cavalry was taken on Great Wrsl Road near London as the cavalrymen, each leading a spare horse, made their annual shift along with the change of residence of the British Royal Household. The household cavalry, which truces its origin to the Parliamentary army of the 17th century, is composed of the Royal Horse Guards and the Royal Life Guards. vVith most of the cotton picked in i n bed. A set of springs of this type Hempstead county, the mattress making season is well under-way. Ten yards of feather ticking, 50 pounds of lint cotton, and 85 yards of mattress cord valued at 25 cents are the necessary materials to make an all cotlon maltress valued at $19, according to Miss Sue Marshall, extension specialist in clothing and household arts, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. Making mattresses at home will release cash for the purchase of a set of good springs, Miss Marshall points out. A set of good springs is as necessary as a good mattress to insure having a comfortable bed. Good prings are ones made of tempered steel with the individual coils held together with small tension springs instead of wire segments. Springs to be used by adults s>/3uld not give more than an inch when pressed down by the hand, or more than half the height of the spring when a person lies down on them without the mattress, the specialist advises. The springs should be so firm that the mattress does not sway from side to side when the sleeper turns or moves School News O/.aii Junior Patterson, a pupil in the fourth grade, hns moved to Louisiana, Danny Citty, a pupil in the first grade, has moved to Nnslwille.

Care of Child Demonstrations in child care and guidance are being conducted by Hempstead county home demonstru- tio nclub members. Providing furniture of the proper si/.e for their own individual use is one phase of the demonstration which has attracted considerable interest in the county, she -laid. Attractive furniture for children can be made at home at small cost, and will contribute a great deal to the training and development of the child, Miss Sybil Bales, extension specialist in home industries, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture, points out. A small table, a place for toys, and a place for clothing help to touch the child habits of neatness, and if the furniture is built so he can reach the shelves, and put away hi.s own clothing and toys, he will receive valuable training in self-reliance, Ms:; Bates said. 28 Arkansas Counties Receive Red Cross Disaster Relief During Past Fiscal Year MAIIION .BAXTH j FULTON ' IZAUD T SH'AO \CKAWFORD_ f- | JO| J- I VAN BUREN L_* i * ICONWAY | _j ._! i J CLEVELAND j LINCOLN LAFArETTEV L , .
