PAGE FOUR HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS RAISING A FAMILY By Olive Roberts Barldti True Tact Is Magic Charm That Opens Many Doors in Woman's Social Life When a girl is thirteen or fourteen, it is time to teach her charm. For charm is going to be her best stock in trade, to be frank. It Is the finest asset of any human being, indeed, but the girl withoul charm, it seems to me is denying her leminhiity. Or being denied it, be cause it is our place to train her. Naturally the art of kindness and friendliness should have been taught from early childhood. Friendliness is an art you see, as well as a virtue. It is one thing to feel friendly to people but another to show them we feel friendly and make them comfortable and happy in the knowledge. But there are certain graces to be added to the un sophisticated sociability of early years, to make the women womanly, the girl, just as the word implies, "graceious." Tact is a wonderful thing. To say the right thing at the right time !is the crux, I think of gentility. To rescue a situation by. turning the subject quickly to another matter. To say a word of encouragement, subtly, without making it too apparent. And to make others feel better for a smile or a handclasp. There are two kinds of tact. One is sheer diplomacy. It is somewhat artificial and calculating. It reacts to the good of the diplomat herself, intentionally. This is not to be discredited, because habit becomes second nature and many a woman who began by being superficially friend- fer as a social asset has come out with a really gracious and sincere per- soniality. The real tact however, is the nat- uarl goodness and kindness of the heart reduced to art It needs training and exercise. We may feel like saying and doing the kind thing, but in our ignorance cannot put it over or let others know how we feel. .Our daughters, and our sons, too, need to be taught this social habit early if they are to make friends. And keep them. . Lesson in Charm It comes t me now, a i'ittle episode that occured a year ago. At a dub I had gone to with friends, two young daughters of a preminont family, so prominent that I knew them at once, recognized as a stranger and BA without any introduction whatsoever came over to me at onec, bowed beautifully and shook my hand. I am useed to good manners, but' I was instantly astonished and charmed.. It was at Bar Harbor. They were from Philadelphia. Later a group of young people were curious to know whatthese girls were like, for I talked to them later and my adntiriation grew. "Tell us. What are they like?" was the quick question. I looked over this group of lovely girls and said, "I believe they did some thing that even you girls would hot have done." And I told. They looked at e'ach other. "Why, we thought finishing schools made them stiff and haughty. Is THAT the right way?' "Listen, dears," I said. "There is a difference between reserve and graciousness, but they go hand in hand." It is true, and our young daughters should know it. Yerger to Bid for (Continued from Page One) Last Dollar quits famous ship line. In most instances the departure of the last dollar is too frequent to be worthy of mention. Richard Whitney borrowed $28,000,000 inthe last four months before his firm crashed.

Rice To Meet T. C. U. DALLACE—<£>}—Three months ago the football sharks set the cards and only the deal was needed officially to hoist Rice Institute into a national mythical championship. Shifting football fortunes wrecked the deck. Saturday at Houston, the ill-fated Owls will not.be out before 38,000 fans to carry out the prediction of the experts—but merely trying to halt the charge to the same goal of one of its neighbors—Texas Christian. Injuries, the most costly one benching its great Ernie Lane, stymied Rice, and no wthe glory left is to rise up and beat down a Christian team ranked No. 1 in the nation. Not in 14 dragging years has a Rice team accomplished such a feat and not an indication pointed to a victory next week, but the same fortunes that trapped Rice could catch TCU. Doubt was still expressed that Lain, who carried Rice to a Southwest Conference title last wear and a Cotton Bowl triumph would be in there Sat- uprday throwing his passes and bucking the line. Other key men, including first string backs and linemen, were due to be bandaged if they start. Meanwhile, Texas Christian, easy victor over Texas last Saturday, 286, nursed its four injured regulars and kept them on the sidelines. Captain I. B. Hale, the 246 pound tackle; Forrest Kline, 240-pound guard, and Halfbacks John Hall and Earl Clark, will be ready for Rice. So will Davey O^Brien—and that's bad news. The little fellow furthered his All-America bid Saturday by completing 17 of 24 passes for 236 yards in an exhibition that had Texas reeling trying to fathom his magic, get started until Saturday.his-voil....fs Rice, with Lain and Olie Cordill, its other touchdown maker on the sidelines, took a terrific bouncing from the Texas Aggies,.27-0. The Aggies, a powerful team never quite able to get started until Saturday, lossed their pent up scoring fury on the crippled Owls. Meanwhile, the Christian's biggest threat to the conference title and a possible undefeated season—Southern Methodist—kept its streak going by rubbing out Arkansas, 19-6. Two sophomore hurlers, Johnny Clement and Ray Mallouf, passed Arkansas dizzy. The Methodist must meet Bullet Bill Patterson and Baylor, a combination that defeated Loyola of Los Angeles, 35-2.

A Book a Day By Bmo* Cattail A Rare Christian Meets Destiny How is a devot, practicing Christian to make terms with this modern world? In a time when force, duplicity and cruelty prevail, what is a believer in truth, justice and common decency to do? In his fine new novel, "Testament" (Farrar & Rineheart: $3), R.C. Hutchinson suggests that such a man can do little but nail his colors to the mast and go do wnas gallantly as may be— trusting, by the faith that is in him, that sometime, somehow, the things he believes in will yet prevail. 'Testament" is a Russian novel written by an Englishman; yet it is so pack de with detail and so completly convincing that one accepts it as an authentic revelation of Russian life. Further, the question it poses is one of universal significence, so that the question of nationality becomes unimportant. Briefly the book tells of a young Russian nobleman who chances to be that somewhat rare sort of person, a practicing Christian. As such.he fits nowhere. In pre-ar days, his passion for truth and justice lands him in one of the Czar's prisons: during the war it leads him into collision with a blind and brutal army hierarchy; afterward, it gets him then unswearving hostility of the ruling Communists So, in the end, there is nthing for this man bjut a firing squad—not because he was a dangerous or subversive character, but simply because he found it impossible to lay aside his ordinary elemental Christian ideals of conduct, You will find "Testement" completly fascinating as a narriative; and the question it posses is likely to provide you with the raw material for a good deal of earnest thought. Nearly , Now Laws Aid Pa But Ma's Hours Still Lack n Limit Well, It's fine, isn't it—that 44-hour week? Papa's home now, two days out of every seven. Home earlier in the evenings, too. Blithely he comes into he house. Changes from his business clothes. Lights his pipe. Settles into lis favorite chair. Reads his paper. A yawn, a refreshing nap, perhaps . . . Ah, this is the life! But who is that shadowy busy figure discernible through the kitchen, enveloped in the steam of stove and washing machine? Could that be tfama—Mama, working the same 84- lour week she always has worked? Wasn't the .great, bright dawn of the ninimum hours law lighted Mama's jurden? Unfortunately, no. So far, nothing has been done to ihorten the housewife's hours. Apparently, she's to keep right on from dawn until after dusk seven days a week washing the dishes that will lave to be washed again in four hours, making beds that will have to be made again the same way next morning, washing, scrubbing, sewing, minding the baby, cooking, marketing and an- wering the doorbell a dozen times a day. Papa's new schedule gives him time o pursue his hobbies, see his old riends and take active part in his community. It offers him a chance to get nterested in something besides his vork, so he'll be interested in what's doing around him and therefore a happier person svhen he's earned his pen- ion or, pension or no, when he's older and must depend less and less on outside entertainment for happiness. Shouldn't the housewife be given he- same chance? What about her uture happiness or her present happiness, for that matter? Would it realty >e selfish to her to let Papa mind the jaby on one of his afternoons off while she .goes out? He has the fol r owing afternoon for golf or bowling or the ball game. What about Mother's old friends? Oh, she probably doesn't need them much now while the children are small and she has to do all her own lousework. But, later on, when the children are grown and married, what then? What then if she has never taken time to develop any interests outside of her children, to read, to think? What all work and no play does to Love's Future Masked Doris Humphrey and Charles Weidman, modernistic dancers of New York, demonstrate the proper technique of. pitching woo in war-time when even lovers have to wear gas masks. Pine Bluff Holds LittleRock 14-14 Annual Gridiron Classic Attracts State's Largest Crowd LITTLE ROCK, Ark.-(/P)-Thc Tn- dian sign Pine Bluff high school tcnms hnvo had on Litllo Rock for over 20 years worked football magic here Saturday as an outplayed band of Zebras held the heretofore unbeaten and untied Tigers to n 14 to M draw before 13,000 fans. Forward passes, their own and one intercepted Little Rock toss, gave the Pine Bluff lads the tie as Little Rock outshown them in every oilier department. Lnfitte, Zebra end, intercepted the one pass and loped 4G yards through unoccupied territory for the first score of the K.nmo. Payne placckickcd the extra point. Little Rock cntne back in the sii'm'e period to send Howard Hughes, ace back, charging 35 yards through the Pine Bluff lino for a touchdown and Baer added the extra point. Hughes scored again on line plays in the third period and Bacr again place kicked the point, but Pine Bluff was not to be denied. With less than three minutes to play, Lnngston tossed Payne an 18 yard pass that put the ball in midfield. Payne then heaved a 45 yard aerial to Ray Hutson on the Little Rock seven. A five yard penalty against Little Rock put the ball right on the pay stripe and Langston went over for the touchdown. Payne's tying placement was perfect.

(Copyright, 1938, NEA Service, Inc.) ^ ^ ^ ^ |-jQPt,8 Sorts Stngff Credited CHICAGO—When Fielding H. Yost said that he devised the spiral forward pass in 1906, the MichiKmi director of athletics stimulated the memories of old-timers, and some of them do not hesitate to say that "Hurry Up" is wrong. An old Chicago player asserts that Amos Alonzo Stagg, who coached the Maroon so long, was first to master the knack of throwing the spiral pass . . . declares that the Old Man of the Midway taught the late Walter Eckor- sall how tot do it. Eckcrsall, if not tho first, wa.M one of the first to throw the pass effectively. Yost said that the first player he ever saw kick a spiral punt was Eddie Abbaticcho, a professional at Latrobc, Pa., in 190G. The professional game started at Latrobc. The Chicago correspondent also takje.l objection to this . . . testifying that he saw Stagg showing his players how to kick spiral punts the year before . . . in 1905.

Do you find yourself, at day's end, irritable, nerve-weary? Take a moment — study the dog above. Pic's resting his nerves. Even in the midst of strenuous action he will stop, relax. The dog does that instinctively, though his nerves are complex, high-keyed like our own. We, trained for the intense stress of modern life, are likely to ignore the distress signals of our nerves — the instinctive urge to rest. So often, we let our will-power drive us on at a task, heedless of nerve tension. You don't want your nervous system to be a drag. See what a difference it makes when you rest your nerves frequently—when you LET UP—LIGHT UP A CAMEL. Enjoy the mellow goodness, the matchless mildness of Camel's rich, ripe tobaccos.
