PAGU FOtfll With the Hemp stead Home Agent Melva Bullington Winter Wardrobes Winter wardrobes are claiming the attention of 92 4-H Club girls enrolled in clothing demonstration in Hempstead county. Wardrobes for 4-H club girls have never had more possibilities than they have this year, since there are so many possibilities for combinations of garments for various occasion, according to Miss Sue Marshall, extension specialist in clothnig and household arts. University of Arkansas College of • Agriculture. It is not the number of dresses and accessories in a girl's wardrobe that makes it outstanding. Miss Marshall points out. An appropriate ensemble for various occasions, such as school, sports, and best wear, makes any girl's wardrobe outstanding. The wardrobe color, with contrasting accessories, must first "be selected. Next, the club girl should take stock of the dresses on hand, and plan how to make them over if necessary. The jumper dress is a fashion favorite this fall and is a splendid way to make over an old wool dress. Miss Marshall suggests. Blouses of all kinds may be made to wear with the jumper dress, as long as they harmonize in color. Cotton print, batiste, silk, or light weight wool may be used for these blouses. Unworn parts from old dresses may furnish the material. The suspenders may button on, then they can be removed and the skirt worn. with wool sweaters, a corduroy or velveteen jacket, or the plain jacket ftf a suit. After the plans for remodeling are finished, the new garments needed to complete the wardrobe should be planned. A plain two-piece suit of wool would be an excellent choice for sports and street, and even church wear, Miss Marshall advises. It should harmonize with a plain wool skirt in the wardrobe. An extra jacket of velveteen or corduroy'to wear with the skirt will be a useful addition. If the budget will allow another dress, one for best wear and informal parties may be added. It may be of silk crepe, or sheer wool that drapes well. A shirt• waist dress is every girl's favorite dress for school, street, or sport wear. If only one coat can be owned at a time, a solid colored, furless ruffer that can be worn with scarfs is the best choice, according to Miss Marshall Avho suggests a wool scarf for school and a silk one for dress occasion. Accessories, such as purse, tarn, or sports hat, and a scarf may be made from scrapes of the plain from the suit. These are very smart for sports and school wear.

Critics hailed sinuous dancing of Bctly Bruce (below) In tills same show. By GEORGE ROSS NEW YORK-One night last year, the lyric-writing Lorenz Hart lay abed, reading Shakespeare's "Comedy of Errors." Flung across the carpet was his brother, Teddy, the diminuitive comedian of "Three Men on a Horse" and "Room Service" fame. Lorenz came to that part where the Bard mixed up Dromio and his twin brother. "What yer laughin' about?" asked Teddy. "Listen," said Lorenz, 'if there were another guy like you, this show would make a great musical." O The other Shakespeare? Hart snickered. "Me? You're off your nut. . But they say me and Jimmy Savo are dead doubles, if that's all that is bothering you." Lorenz Hart leapt out of bed Literally. A little fellow of vast nervous energy, he doesn't do things by slow degrees. "Sure," , he exclaimed, "I'd forgotten that you and Savo are ringers. Control yourself, Teddy, you're about to become a Shakespearean ac- Errafic Comedians At noon the next day, this boudoir projept had been transmitted to that other ace comedian, Jimmy Savo, who felt the same way about it as Teddy did. Then Lorenz Hart met Producer George Abbott on the street. "I've got a great idea," he said. They stopped Abbott said It was a great at the Astor Bar, where Hart told him Then they both went over to Richard SERIAL STORY LOVERS AWEIGH BY BETTY WALLACE COPVRIOHT, teas NBA SERVICE, INC.

Jack Heime* this and asks her, bat »bc denica It, knowing she in lying, CHAPTER XXIV Judy Alcott left the Naval Hospital, her heart was a heavy, lifeless lump inside her. She felt stiff, old. Weary as she had never felt before. Her fingers touched her lips with a sort of loathing, with a stunned disbelief that they could have been the medium through which she had lied to Jack Hanley. Lied again. How many times had she lied to him? She had lost count. She felt his hurt, she felt the sickening, senseless blow she had given him, but she was powerless to stop herself. Something urgent f egged her on. Something compelling and indescribable. Something compounded of the songs she had danced to with Dwight Campbell the sound of their laughter blending. Something that was part of the kisses he had given her and part of that night on the Texarkana when he told her he was marrying Marvel. Everything she had lived through — everythin) they had lived through together — was separate and. alive in her memory. The memories made a little ihain, like a bracelet thorns. {There was his v vice, asking her to help Marvel get along And Marvel's voice saying, "You . love him." There was the time both of them stood before her anc said, "Will you be the maid o honor?" And the wedding — and the party in the theatrical, overdone house. And Marvel's voice whipping at her in the room on the ship. Why couldn't she be done with it? Why couldn't she cast him ou of her heart? Jack was the mosi wonderful man a girl could have Fine and true and honest. But she knew, anguishedly, that it wasn't enough. Knowing his worth wasn't enough. There had to be that other, mysterious alchemy, that pull that drew you to him, that made your blood water In your veins, and your will soft end useless at the sound of his voice. There had to be emptiness When he wasn't near you, and singing happiness when he was close. Not just satisfaction. Not just contentment. Nothing that she had with Jack was enough. Jhe flaming promise of what might have been hers leaped to life every time she heard Dwight's name. * « * GJHE had parked the car a couple of blocks away foom the hospital. She could not see to drive Her hands shook on She'd have to calm lit a cigaret. It any more, the wheel. herself. She was no good. People passed. Faceless, anonymous people. Were they all happy? Or did everyone have his secret grief? She thought, suddenly seeing everything clearly, that it wasn't the grief that counted. She had had hers—Ward's death, long ago. Other things. It wasn't the grief. It was having, if only for been allowed to possess. "We got in from Bremerton a couple of days ago," he said. "Surely you must have heard by now." "No," she said. "Tell me. If you want to." * * * TJiS big, brown hands touched the dashboard, then curled around the door handle. "Nothing much. Right from the beginning we couldn't—couldn't jibe. She wanted to spend a few thousand dollars on a honeymoon and I didn't have it." He roused himself with an effort. "Oh, why talk about it. More important things. I—I heard about Bill Bell. That was a raw thing. He was a a little while, the glittering mi-1 nice Suy. I—I always liked him. T """' u: ~ '"'"" "" ' -.-... — rage, the promised miracle. Feeling it, close in your hand. Touching it. Sensing it. Letting it flame through you, coming alive ^under its spell. If you lost it afterward —if it broke your heart and ruined your world—it was still worthwhile. Still the most beautiful thing a human being could have. Diane had had it. Nights in the little bungalow, in Bill's arms Her mother had had it. She was lucky. It had changed imperceptibly to staid Even the solid affection, the warmth of growing old. „,„„ Marvel had had it. Marvel who had married Dwight because she wanted to. Marvel, who had left when she grew tired. Liked his wife. What about her?' "She's gone to her folks," said Judy. "The papers said Bell came down to help Hanley. Said if he hadn't sacrificed himself for his shipmate — What soap?" was that, the usual "No, it was true. Bill was a—a hero." Dwight said moodily, "Hero stuff is usually hooey. Why should a man throw his life away?" Then he said, "But I guess he believed it. Bell was an idealistic guy. Rotten shame!" "You don't like Jack Hanley much, do you?" Rodgers' house and mentioned it to the music-writing half of the Rodgers & Hart team. By the next nightfal, Shakespeare already had begun to turn over in hi, Stratford crypt; for his "Comedy of Errors" was about to be converted into a song and dance show, with a couple of vaudeville comics, smart tunes, plenty of girls and with a new title—) "The Boys from Syracuse." 'Twouid Wow the Bard Skip the months of writing, composing, rewriting, re-composing, casting, rehearsing, trying-out . . . and we get up to the other night when "The Boys from Syracuse" had its Grand Opening at the Alvin. Here is how the critics felt about the whole idea the next morning: "Kiss "The Boys From Syracuse' Hello for me," said the academic Mr. Atkinson of the Times. "I believe it will be regarded as the greatest musical comedy of its time," said Mr. Whipple of the World Telegram. "Among the town's indispensable amusements," said Mr. Anderson of the Journal- American. "Something to see and hear," said Mr. Brown of the Post. "One of the season's gayest," said Mr. Lockridge of the Sun. And all the way down the line the critics lavished more praise upon this show than upon any other revue that has come to town in years. We think old Will would have hummed the songs Rodgers & Hart wrote on his way out of the theater and that he wouldn't have minded the liberties Mr. Abbott has taken with his original script. For the fact is that though the plot of "The Comedy of Errors" is all there, the dialogue is Mr. Abbott's. Nobody minds. up, scarcely believing she had really heard her name. "Judy!" For a moment, she felt numb. And then, seeing him open the door, seeing his lean, tanned face and the curly hair under his cap she said, "Dwight!" He sat down beside her The door closed. She heard it close This must be real, it must be happening. But she didn't believe it yet. "I was walking—not going anywhere—just walking " he said "When I saw your car, I thought at first I was dreaming." ''I'm dreaming," said Judy You're not really here " " e !,^! d ? t _ her ' His eyes were here, all with a little mirthless laugh. "There's no nlace else to go. I couldn't stand the house. It s her house, anyway " She folded her hands together. She mustn't tremble so. "Would »"•' more vicious about gossip than the Navy? Everybody watches everyone else. You can't have a free private moment. y ou can't have a private thought!" "It must be that way everywhere," she said, remembering how tew private thoughts she had know. Was the spin his fault- lose control? Or just the human element." "It was engine failure." "I'm probably not being fair," he said. "I've had such a load of private hell, I didn't think much about it. Always have been suspicious of grand-stand gestures, that's all. But I'll give it to Bell— if it was ever real, it was r«al with him." "You're very cynical." "Why wouldn't I be?" He was suddenly bitterly angry. "Even love—love, the most tooted commodity in the book!" "You love her very much, don't you?" He didn't answer that directly. "She's spoiled. She doesn't realize ... Sometimes she's like a little kid, greedy, eager to taste everything. She's always had so much. I guess the Navy was no fun for her. She didn't want to drive up to Bremerton. The other wives bored her. She—she was used to a different life. And Tennan t's yacht is the sort of thing—" "That isn't so awful," said Judy, trying to be fair. "I should think you'd be able to understand that." "Bu,t he's a snake!" said Dwigbt violently. "He's the kind who thinks a kiss—even if it's another man's ^' f ° —" (To Be Contlr *e4> Washington Mrs. Lucille Carrigan was a Hope visitor Saturday.

Well, thank heaven, that's setllcc or, at least, it seemed to be scttlci the morning of Nov. 9, when near!, everyone whose views appeared i print said the election results had bur! ed all possibilities of Roosevelt Hut- term or even n third term nomination No one in Mr. Roosevelt's place, i Ivas said, would be such a fool ns t think of trying for another renom inntion after what had just happened and the sooner he renounced the ide publicly, the better for all. Ickcs Lends Off Sccrtary Ickcs was first to craw from under the debris and annoimv he could still notice third term pos sibilitics flickering on the far horizon. Later Governor Murphy of Michigan declared the question ought to bi left "open" and Senator Norris o Nebraska said he doesn't like third terms but could manage to stand on for Roosevelt, Thaat seemed to indicate where the New Dealers stood, as might have beci expected. Quite unexpected was the sub sequent flat assertion of Business Week a magazine as conservative as its name implies: Roosevelt is far more likely as a result of election . . .

Again unexpectedly, Publisher Frank i. Gannett, who has led .some of the itteresf ;md most .succe.sful battles gainst Roosevelt proposals, says he liinks "it's more certain than ever lat Roosevelt will seek re-election in :MO. Gannett is "inclined to believe e will win. Reports are geting around that Rosevelt has told certain persons he •on't run again. But some of his clo- est associates are sure they'll be beg- ing him to accept renomination in •MO and Ihat he will heed their pleas. The Court and Mooncy ^ibly no one will ever know, but it's possible a majority of the Supreme Court favored a review .of the Tom Mooncy ease despite the Court formal refusal to reconsider its previous refusal to grant a writ of cer- tiorai. Justices Reed and Black dissented from the original refusal to grant the petition of Attorneys John H. Finerty a nd George T. Davis. But it was announced they took no part in consideration of the second application. Which meant six justices made the decision. They may have been unamous or they may have split three to three, in which case resconsideration would still have been refused for lack of a favorable majority among those voting. The point is: no one knows. Some effort well be made for legislation requiring the court to grant certiorari in any case where at least two justices (hink a writ should issue, and requiring the court to give its reasons for refusal when important constitutional questions are involved. Prospective sponsors of the bill arc none too hopeful.
