IIUHN: likes music. BY ALICIA HART NEA Staff Writer Fifteen minutes' relaxation by yourself toward the end of the day may enable you to turn out work twice as fast the next morning. The question ' s > for many women, how to relax? "Soft lighis and music is my formula." says Constance Luft Huhn, one of New York's best known young business executives. She carries tsvicc the responsibility she had before the war because her famed cosmetics house now also turns out military surgical instructions—precision stuff and plenty of it—and she's working chief at the factories. "Working under physical .and mental strain, I often find it impossible to 'let jjo,' she says, "but tension and tiredness fade away whc n I slip into a comfortable, colorful robe, turn the lights down and the phonograph or radio up, not too loud." Maybe you'd prefer lo read, or vindow-gardcn, or crochet. Whal- vcr you choose, you'll find a daily B-minulc respite, alone, will step P your appearance and your ef- iciency. It's indicated particularly viicn you work under pressure ol esponsibility or speed or precision. JOAN WETMORE: chic .hairdo. BY ALICIA HART NEA Staff Writer A new hair-do can do more foi you than any oilier beauty device By Ihc very way you style youi couture, you can appear sophisticated, business-like, ultra-clue: en perl and pretty. society s Mrs. W. Palmer Dixon —known to theatergoers as Joai Wetmore—finds the new off-the- collar style serves a double pur pti.se in her many-sided life. It is perfect for her characterization o the suave and very chic wife o Paul Muni in "Counsellor at Law," yet is neat enough for her bcforc- ihcatcr activities as a nurse's uide and volunteer worker. The secret of attaining the sleek look of Mrs. Dixon's upswept hairdo is cream pomade. Take just a bit on the tips of your lingers, smooth lightly on your back hair, brush it upward, and you won't ever be bothered with wisps.

On the Eighth Army ront, where even more difficult errain restricted operations to pa- rol activities with little British gains, the Axis forces were report- d to be 30 per cent Italian and 0 per cent German. Gen. Sir Bernard Montgomery's irmy has advanced about seven nilcs along the coast toward Bou Fiona since the start of his present offensive, three m'iles in the enter and two miles on the left.

Light bombers and fight- ;r - bombers started fires in Axis- icld areas and destroyed vehicles, .he communique said. One enemy vessel, identified by vostern desert air force observers is a landing craft, was sunk in an icrial sweep over the Gulf of Tunis and three others, two of which were believed to be gasoline car- •iers, were left aflame. Another hip was set afire in the Sicilian straits. Several others were damaged. (U. S. Liberator bombers of the linth U. S. Army Air Force struck simultaneously in daylight yesterday at the Axis supply ports of Naples and Messina, Cairo com- muniques announced, and shot down five of the Axis fighters which challenged them. RAF fighter-bombers based at Malta at- Uicked Syracuse and a Valletta bulletin said bombs burst in the torpedo boat base and hits were noted on the powerhouse and jett.) All indications arc that the Germans arc determined to resist to the very end, attempting to compel the Allied armies to pay dearly for every inch of Tunisian soil taken from them. They are aided by the terrain, excellent for defense fighting, and in recent days have also been helped by the weather, which has not permitted the United States, British and French Air Forces to strike with the same force as could be done were it not for the low clouds conceling enemy dispositions. While some first army forces were still coping with the Djebel Bou Aoukaz counterattacks, others occupied the village of Sidi Ahmed 10 miles northeast of Medjez-El- Bab. Farther south the British were held up by strong enemy positions four miles east of Heidous.

Chinese Language Has Is Points Calcutta, India -American airmen in China arc being taught to read Chinese with their fingers. They have had lo learn that way, because no matter how hard their teachers worked they could not learn in a hurry how lo speak so a Chinese could undersland it. The new finger method is called "poinl- ie-lalkie." Say an American airman is forced down in China, perhaps behind Ihe enemy lines. The nalives are suspicious. He pulls out his little pointie-lalkie book and goes to work. There is one column of questions lo ask, wriltcn in English. Opposile is Ihe same Ihing in Chinese. So Ihe airman poinls to the Chinese. The Chinese reads the question and naturally begins spouting the reply in Chinese. But the airman can't understand. However, below each question are several possible answers printed both in English and Chinese. Which answer fits the question? .Well, it is up to the American airman lo persuade the Chinese lo get into the game jmd select the right answer. The English legal defination of a witch is "a person who hath conference wilh Ihe Devil lo consult with him or to do some act." Reich's Crop Prospect Is Best in Years By EDWIN SHANKE Stockholm, April 30 (/P) —Germany has exhausted her cereal reserves and her people are, for the time being, living from hand to mouth, but they have before them the prospect of the best crop since 1939, according to economic circles here. Trying to balance the low stale of reserves and offset wartime exhaustion of the soil by increased acreage, the country planted ap- proximatly 18,000,000 acres to wheat and rye. Winter weather was normal and, if spring is as favorable, the attempt will succeed. But, while this brightens the outlook for the winter cereal crops, there are man other fac isrnot there are many other factors in Germany's general good situation not calculated to cheer up ,the population. These include, first, a lack of fertilizer. Twenty per cent less nitrogenous fertilizer was allocated to German'farmers this year than last because of a needed increase in explosives production." In addition, supplies of natural phosphate fertilizers — essential in Europe and especially for growing beets and potatoes — are very low since the United Nations cut off imports from North Africa. In 1,939 Europe drew 70 per cent of its phosphates from North Africa and in 1942 drew 35 per cent, while the continent produced only three per cent of its needs. Secondly, the shortage of farm machinery and the difficulty of obtaining parts to patch them up. Old cannon, tanks, planes, locomotives and rolling stock now have priorities over farm machinery. Third, the scarcity of horses. The army snapped up many horses for the eastern front, forcing farmers to turn to cows and oxen. Germany's farms never were highly motorized. Farmers lucky enough to own tractors receive only a limited supply of fuel. They have been ordered to switch over to wood burning adaptations, but this is a slow process because of an equipment bottleneck. Four, the army is absorbing more and more skilled farm hands and managers. Five, RAF raids have seriously disrupted German food distribution systems in some sectors, especial- ler#. Newspapers recently discussed means of "closing the fat gap." Fat rations have been reduced 50 to GO per cent of normal, much more than any other staples. Failure of the oil seed crop last year left Germany in a bad spot until the new harvest.

A chattering flock of parakeets beat noisy wings in sudden flight. Barry's hand closed on Lila's arm. "Technicolor, uh?" he whispered. He stood watching the brilliant scene and Renaldc paused beside him. A muffled fury and desperation caught up Lila. Would the fools never get back to the house? But she forced herself lo stand quietly. "It's what gets you about jungle country/' Barrysaid. "You never know what mad whim nature will be throwing next." "No/> Renaldo smiled. "You only know it will be sudden—and vigorous." They moved on finally, and crossed the clearing. Allison greeted them from the veranda. In the sunset glow, she was a misty vision in her full- skirted evening gown of sheerest tuile. Lila could have killed her. "We're having a party!" cried Allison gaily. "A parly?" said Barry. "What for?" "It's Renaldo's birthday." Allison sent the Spaniard a mischievous smile. "Cook told me. She said father always had her bake a cake for him. So we're having one tonight." The nandsome Renaldo for once lost nis savoir faire. He stuttered in nis contusion. "You—you shouldn't nave gone tc that trouble.'" But he was pleased. "It's been a rather—strenuous day—- : ' Lila began with controlled anger. "Couldn't we postpone—" Kenaldo looked sharply disappointed. Allison cried, "Oh, you can't postpone a birthday party!" J And Barry chimed in, "1 think it'll be jolly," Lila swep,. in to her room. If it weren't that she wanted Barry . even more than she wanted to get ner fiands on that yellow- haired vixen! %he thought savagely. A shower took away some of the fatigue from her aching body, but she was still in no humor for a party. It didn't help her mood, either, to have Allison offer to lend her an evening gown to make a change from the one she had been wearing each night. "This will do nicely," she murmured, slipping the dark satin over her head. But she seethed furiously as she snapped it up and fastened her diamond clips at her ears and breast. She was sick of the dress—almost as sick of it as she was of this place. Something must happen soon. She couldn't carry on this ridiculous masquerade much longer—not even for Barry Fielding. If he thought more of this awful country and this blonde than he did of her— But she went out to the living room looking tall and regal and serene. * * * gLIM, dark Renaldo, in spotless whites, was a handsome gallant, and Barry, with his broad shoulders, his clean-cut features, his engaging grin, looked the spirit of conviviality. Over the shining, hand-hewn mahogany table they toasted Renaldo, the candlelight gleaming on their copper cups of wine. "I wish for you many, many happv years on the plantation," Allison cried. Renaldo's black eyes held a sudden gleam as they met Allison's across the table. His voice \yas low, vibrant with tense questioning. "May I hope the same for you?" he said. Barry glanced sharply at the girl. She ignored the significant tone and went on smiling warmly and blithely at Renaldo. "Thank you," she murmured. "It's not exactly the way you welcomed me, is it, Barry?" "It is not," said Barry. And the three of them laughed with deep amusement. "In fact," Barry added, grinning, "Renaldo and 1 had a pact to get you on the next boat back." "It wasn't nice of you," Allison declared. "I don't like trickery.'' "Neither do I," said Barry with sudden fervor. Allison's eyes met Lila's for the briefest instant, their laughter definitely mocking. One delicate, rich course followed another. As the light' cake was carried in, an Indian played his marimba in the moonlit living room, the wailing native melody weaving through their laughter. Through the low, wide windows, the dark figures of natives could be seen drifting at a respectful distance irom the Big House for a glimpse of the gala scene. Barry smiled across at Lila. "With company like this, darling," he cried, "it won't matter if the quicksilver mines keep us down here for years!" "No!" Lila echoed with a sharp laugh. She turned to Renaldo. "When will the chicle be ready to send to the coast?" she asked. * * * TJENALDO turned to her, a gleam of proud satisfaction in his dark eyes. "In about three days," he said. "Then we shall begin packing the mules." Drawn out on the subject by her sudden show of interest, he began a description of the process of sending chicle to the States. He strolled with her out onto the veranda still deep in his subject. When he had finished, he lit his pipe. "Fascinating, isn't it?" he said. Lila blew a wreath of smoke and answered steadily, "No. It's completely boring to me." The Spaniard stared at her till his lighted match burned his fingers. She regarded him with cynical humor, as she burst out in sudden venom, "I hate the whole stupid business! I hate this miserable excuse for existence down here!" "Then why," Renaldo asked, "do you stay here?'' "Because Barry won't go home," she said. "And I won't go without him." Renaldo'r black eyes sharpened. "You're afraid of his attacks of fever perhaps?" he said softly. She met his gaze for a long minute. Then she said bluntly, "I am afraid of Allison Topping." With a glow of satisfaction she saw apprehension leap into the Spaniard's syes. "1 thought you might help me get Barry back to the States," she said quietly. She felt easier. She had not misjudged the handsome Renaldo. He was in love with Allison. He would give r great deal to be rid of Barry at this moment. "But Barry is determined to complete the mine negotiations with the Quiches,' 1 he frowned. "It the Quiches proved—too unfriendly.'' Lila murmured cryptically, "becau.se of his first encounter with them, Barry would see he was only hurling the company's cause, and would go back with me." "But I don't believe they will," Rcnaldo's low voice objected. "Then surely—he could be given a strong impression of un- ly in the Ruhr. Ration cards dropped by the enemy not only upset a carefully worked out rationing system but added n e w burdens to the work of skeleton rations staffs. They had to invalidate cards to insure proper sharing. Six, the black market, the Nazis now, boast that at last, in a land where every egg is catalogued and every hen regimented they have eliminated the last loopholes. But the markets still flourish, judging by newspaper notices of convictions. "The entire agricultural production is now sequestered and controlled by the state marketing organization," the Frankfurter Zei- tung said in an article on "c o n- trolied farms. "Every producer has to fill certain deliveries which, practically speaking, leave only small, lufecar- ly regulated leeway for the farmer's own needs and therefore no illegal trade." Cream separators and butter churns arc now sealed, or their most important parts arc removed and held by authorities. The farmer is thus forced to deliver all milk to creameries, receiving in return a ration of butter for his own use When a farmer wants to slaughter a cow or pig, it must be taken lo a checking center forweighing and special marking so that he can't evade regulations by substituting a heavier animal later. Until the new harvest, Germans must get along on bread made of a mixture containing rye, barley, and potato flour. This is because 6,000,000 acres of wheat were frozen out last year. A good potato crop helped, but for the rest the Nazis sacrificed, for morale purposes, reserves which at the start of the war were estimated at 5,000,000 tons of bread cereals. Although the Germans still have plenty to eat, fat continues to be a very weak point in the war diet and is presenting farm leaders with an increasingly serious prob- WE EMPLOY NO AGENTS BUY DIRECT FROM MANUFACTURER and Save Agent's Commission.
