II is suggested thai you clip and save each inslullmenl for future reference. Prepared by the U. S. Department of Agriculture for NEA Service After selecting a site for the Vic- lory Garden—an open ,sunny space wilh soil fertile enough ot grow vegetables successfully—the nexl slep in gelling your garden under way is prcparalion of Ihe soil. Preparation includes breaking pulverizing, and smoothing the earth and fertilizing it in accordance with its needs. Work should be started in the spring as soon as the ground is dry enough lo work and slones, debris and obstructions have been clearec away. Where the soil is deep, i should be plowed or spaded to a depth of 8 lo 10 inches. However on thin soils the gardener should be careful nol lo lurn up very much sub-soil.

Ceil- ng prices have been eslablished by Ihe Office of Price Adminislralion lo insure that this fertilizer will be available to Victory gardeners at prices consistent with its qualily value. Agronomists agree that 38-7 grade of fertilizer is probably the best formula that can be made available during the war lime emergency, Ihe supply of chemical nitrogen being somewhat curtailed in comparison with lasl year because of war needs. Less Efficient The Viclory Garden ferlilizer should be applied at the rate of 1 pound per 24 or 25 feet of row when Ihe rows are Iwo feet apart.

CHAPTER XV JAMES CARR needed Bette Davis Monty Wooley NOW SHOWING — 2 — Gloria Jean Robert Paige in 1 "Man Who Come to Dinner" in "Get Hep to Uove" sound sleep this night and he didn't get much. Ho was too consumed with thinking. If he hadn|t been a healthy young animal it might have told on him. "There's something screwball about this whole deal," he told himself, right after he left Loraine at midnight. They had talked in the mezzanine for more than an hour. "If she wasn't such a swell somebody—" He never did finish what would happen if she wasn't such a swell somebody. He was silling on his bed, one Army dress shoe off and one on. He still held Ihe oft one in his hand, and he was staring at nothing 1 . Wham! The shoe hit a wastepaper basket, skittered over and stopped beside a chair. Throwing it gave Jimmy a kind of release, but i' was no way lo treat a dress shoe He picked it up again, inspected it, and rang for a bell hop. "Here's four bits, pal," he smiled at the boy, also giving him both shoes. "See that these look like mirrors in the morning." "Yes sir, sure, Captain Card" Then he sat wilh his feet on the back of a chair, body sprawled on the bed. He envisioned Loraine Stuart. Taffy hair in perfect order. Lips and rouge ;ind eye business all perfect, as usual. A swell somebody. Only, damn it, she'd been drinking. He couldn't figure that. He and Loraine had agreed lhat flying and drinking don't mix. Jimmy Can- couldn't understand anybody who didn't keep agreements. Loraine's broken promise, trivial as it was, left him confused. The truth was, he couldn't see Loraine as anything but the lovely somebody she appeared to be. Undeniably she was beautiful. She had been beautiful when he firsl met her at an aviation ball, and she still was. Oh, she may have had some faults, but who hasn't? Offhand he couldn't remember tonight, she had done a strange thing. "She never did explain how she came to be late for the start of the trip," he said. "I asked her, and she acted mad!" That didn't make sense, either; Army life runs with clocklike precision. Eleven o'clock is 11 o'clock exactly. Even Loraine should have understood lhat. And if she was so determined to make that trip, why didn't she telephone him if she couldn't make it? And most of all, why did she have to forge his name in order to catch up? Soon after his pilot friend, Ed Bryan, telephoned him from Elmira, Jimmy went to sleep. If leep it could be called. He was still upset about the whole situa- ,ion. three-column pictures, and Pat had other poses, too. The soaring flight had almost stolen Ihe day's play from, the war itself. Jimmy studied the piclures like a pleased boy. He hadn't known how photogenic Pat was. She looked like a cross between Betly Grable and Judy Garland, only more so. Cutest of all was that astonished, half-frightened, half-happy pose where Pat was just getting into the sailplane at Elmira, after he had snatched her up on the run. HEARTS IN THE CLOUDS, a headline writer had effused, over ;he pictures. And then added, be- ow, "Handsome young soaring expert' and his beautiful fiancee, J. B. Koonce Dies in Local Hospital Today J.

Burial will be in Rose Hill cemelery. He is survived by his widow, 2 sons, J. B. Koonce, Jr. of Tulsa, Okla., and Commander P. B. Koonce of Ihe U. S.

C., and Mrs. Lon Ward of Conway, S. C. He was slill upset about it next morning at breakfast. He felt better physically, but he felt some- low awkward about .starting with Pat and substituting Loraine as his passenger going west. "No, that's not lair," he argued. "Lorry got a dirty break at the start." [E was trying valiantly to stand ^ up for his fiancee in his own mind. Contrarily, though, he kept thinking of Pat with favor too. He remembered how Pat had been stricken with stage fright as Ihey Miss—!" Hey!" Jimmy exclaimed. "Good jumping grief!" The papers had muffed it. Or somebody had. They said this picture was his fiancee, Miss Loraine Stuart! When it was really Pat. "Oh, oh, oh!" Jimmy was moaning and laughing at the same time. The papers of course had been told that Loraine would be the passenger. Pictures had been taken in a terrific rush at Elmira, at Cleveland, and here in Chicago itself. Suddenly the personal import o£ Ihe error struck him, however. It wasn't funny at all, it was awful! And then, strangely perhaps, for a young man engaged, Capt. James Carr's mind sought a way to protect not his fiancee but the Mahogany trees, chiefly fomic n Honduras, are scattered lirough thousands of acres of for :st, sometimes only one to ; quare mile. f If You Suffer Distress FronP\ FEMALE WEAKNESS Which Makes You Cranky, Nervous tt at such times you suffer from cramps, 1 backache, distress of "Irregularities", periods ol the blues—due to functional monthly disturbances— Start at once—try Lydla E.
