His father, an opera singer, discovering musical talent in his son, bought him a violin. At six he was able to play it. Four years later, Victor was sent to his grandfather in Warsaw to study at the Conservatory of Music, where his virtuosfty earned, him the Diploma of Merit and an appearance with the Warsaw Philharmonic orchestra. Victor toured the European capitals. The course of his life seemed shaped to a career of classical music. But, then, the world seemed destined to enduring peace. War ?imes found Victor playing in Kiev. Hero ho Wai detained by the Bolsheviks, but was aided to escape by a friendly officer who had heard him play. A Book i Day By Brut* Cftthm A Sninll Town Boy Describes Another Picked up by the Germans after his escape, he was again imprisoned, and again his violin stood him in good stead, and he was set free. He made his way to Paris, back to Chicago, and finally on to California, where he met his sweetheart and took a job in motion pictures, to help support his wife. He became a compose? and arranger of popular music, and his first tune "Sweet Sue-Just You" is already on its way to becoming a classic. Recognition came when he was elected to membership in the America;-. Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers. His continuing contributions to American music overshadow his career as a concert violinist. A better biographer for Cnlviii Co- oligc thnn Willinm Allen While could hnrdly hnve been found anywhere. So it is natural to expect o good deal of Mr. White's now biography, "A Puri- tnn in Babylon," (Mac-million: $3.50), an dlt can be said at once that the book is not a disappointment. Here, by a man with a small-town background, is a thoughtful study of 'he small-town man who was President during America's most hectic big-city era. Mr. White sees Calvin Coolidge as a throw-bock to the rural New England of a century ngo. His virtues were what wo would call ild-fnshioned virtues; yet somehow he fitted perfectly into a time when those /itrtics were tit n very great discount. There is n prodigious puzzle to bo •olved there, and Mr. While does not quite solve it. Perhaps nobody :;m. But this book docs arrange most ,>f the puzzle's pieces. It is a study ,>f Calvin Coolidges' times, as much of Cooliclgo himself, and itis an important contribution to our understanding :if the great boom of the 1920's. H also helps one lo n partial understanding of thhe enigmatic Coolidge himself. There is, for instance, one immensely revealing anecdote. While Mr. While was visiting the White -House once, studying his subject, Co| ulkltfc asked him just what he want| ed. Mr. White said that he supposed j what he really was after was a look L-t the real Coolidge behind the mask. Coolidge thought for a minute, then smiled. "Perhaps there isn't any," he said. Thehre was one, though, and Mr. White docs n sympathetic but not uncritical pob. of digging him out.

Termites The best lumber is helpless against a small white insect that is responsible tor thousands of dollars damage to buildings every year. Termites live in the soil and feed on wood. They avoid light, and work on the inside. Frequently lumber that appears to be sound will be found to belittle more than a shell with the interior almost completely eaten away. Damage by termites can be avoided >y proper construction, according to 2arl L. Arnold extension agricultural ngineer, University of Arkansas Col- ege of Agriculture. All wooden parts of a building hculd be placed so that they will be lermanently dry. Rubbish and debris •n which termites could feed should ;e carefully cleaned from the vicin- ty of the building. The building should be placed on a | tone, brick, cr concrete masonary 'cundation which extends at least 18 nches above the ground, Mr. Arnold :dvises. If a brick foundation is used, t should be laid with a Portland ce- nent mortar rather than a lime mortar, ince termites will burrow through! ime mortar for several feet to reach ] he wooden parts of the structure. I Over the top of the foundation, a • termite shield consisting of a strip of, sheet metal should be placed. This] netal should extend about 2 inches i in either side of the foundation and be i bent clown at an angle of about 45! Icgrees to the horizontal, Mr. Arnold i •aid.

Among the gifts may be found, hot dish pads, crocheted of twine or pine needles, laundry bags, pot lifters, handkerchiefs bags, rugs and ice tea coasters. Miss Sybil D. Bates, extension specialist in home industries, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture, makes some other suggestions for Christmas gifts which can be very attractive, but inexpensive. A small box cut and made with six compartments to fit jelly glasses may be covered with tinsel paper. The pantry shelf will provide six varieties of Attempted Bribery?

The package can be wrapped and decorated with greenery from the woods. Confections made with home-grown hickory nuts, black walnuts, and pecan meats, such as icebox dropped cookies, candies, and salted nuts, will be most welcome to the person with a sweet tooth. Miss Bates suggests that coffee cans with close fitting lids can be painted in gay colors and used as containers. An unusual and very atlractive gift can be made by fitting cellophane bags filled with shelled popcorn into large husks of corn from which the ear has been removed. Several ears tied together make a very acceptable gift, Miss Bales suggesla.
