But there is every indication that the bottom of the scarcity of farm labor has boon reached and that the swing - back is moving rapidly now.

BY ALICIA HART NBA Staff Writer "When all other exercises fail o slim, you down to the proport- ons you want to be," says Mot- •opolilan Opera soprano Annamary Jiekcy, "try walking on your hips." One of a regular rountine of exercises which the singer docs each lay to keep t/i|n. walking on her lips is really not as much of a contortion as it sounds. Ilure is the way to do it: Begin by sitting on tho floor, ;egs together and stretched out straight in front of you. Place your lands lightly on your knees. Now walk on your hips, taking as long a "stride 1 ' with cacli hip as possible. Do this 25 times forward and the same number of times backward. "Not only is it an excellent exercise to reduce hips." Miss Dickey has discovered, "but it also strengthens muscles of tho stomach and abdomen." And of course, this means that with slim hips and a flat stomach, clothes will look twice as well on you. For, being well-dressed depends as much on how you wear clothes as it tines on good stylo Miss Martha While, who is a stu dent at the University of Arkansas, Fayctlcvillo, will arrive home lo- day lo spend a week before returning for the summer term.

Strange Things Can Happen in Battle Washington — (If) — Strange tilings are apt to happen in shrapnel shower .... A chest surgeon at Walter Reoc hospital said that a soldier wh had boon wounded by shrapnel ii Africa was brought to the hospila o have the modal removed from iis chest. The youth had a per- oplible lump on oacli side of his host, but the X-rays revealed a hrapnel fragment only on one ido.

Tho surgeon probed into he lump oh the other side, and icaled the lop piece of a fountain Under Selective Service orders, deferment of farm labor is now being recognized as a necessity.

Where was Margaret, I wondered again, and my heart began to ache. I'd have to toll her — poor, poor Margaret! I sat there by the phone rubbing my forehead with one clammy hand and trying desperately to think, I didn't know what was best. Maybe if we told the police that we didn't know the dead man . . . but, I'd have to explain that to Margaret. Tho operator in the village finally put me through to the county scat. There was a discussion between her and another telephone girl, and then a crisp masculine voice announced: "SherifTs office." I said we had a dead man in our ravine. The man at Ihe other end of tho wire asked for details as calmly as if finding a dead man was an everyday occurrence. Maybe it was lo him. I told him as much us was necessary, no more. Then I went back to the living room. Clint Maltison had taken a seat. He looked pretty white. I guess his arm was beginning to hurt. If only he and lhat devilish glider of his hadn't come crashing down at the wrong time. . , . I grilled my teeth and told Clara to give him the smelling salts. Connie was all right. "Where's Margaret?" I finished. Sarah ventured that she was probably in her rpom. It was Margaret's habit to get up early luring the summer month., and do lor work while it was cool. Then she'd take a ,iap about the middle of the clay. The storm broke while I was climbing tho stairs. A great rush of wind sailed through the house banging doors and blowing things over. Then rain drummed against he windows. I winced as I .bought of the body out there in the ravine with the rain beating clown on it. >!• * # ]\/TARGARET was in her room, but she wasn't asleep. The blinds were down, for coolness I suppose, making the room very dim. She was sitting in a rocking chair by one of the windows, sitting very still, and staring ahead at the drawn blind. "Margaret, T said. My voice wa- pretty shaky. "Yes—Miss Marthe." She didn't seem surprised that I was there in her room. I went over and knelt beside her and took her worn old hands in mine. I would have given anything if I could have spared her the shock of Ibis, She had worshipped him. "Derek is dead," I said. "I'm afraid—that is—somebody killed him. He's out there in the ravine. Oh, Margaret, Margaret." I was the one who was crying. She stared at me, her wrinkled, broad, Irish face looking like a brown gnome's in the dimness of the room. She didn't ask any questions. I suppose she was too stupefied. I told her nil I knew. Then I gathered my courage. "The police are coming here. I phoned them. Of course, they'll ask a lot of questions. Margaret, it might be betler if we told them we didn't know him—didn't know who he was. Could you do that, Margaret?" She nodded her head, but her eyes were vague. I didn't think she understood. I tried again. "It will be hard or you. I suppose we'll all have :o look ct him. But just say you don't know him. Do you understand, Margaret?" Her voice came from a great distance. "Yes—Miss Marthe." * T CLOSED Margaret's door sofHy. *• I would have to Icil Kathy, too! She was the only other person in the house who could identify Derek. As I started down the stairs :ho door of the rose room opened. Kathy came out into the hall. I held on to the stair rail tight while I waited for her to come to mo. Then I took hold of her arm. "Kathy! When did you come back?" "Oil, an hour or so ago. Why?" Thero is always a flippant undei> tone in her clear voice as if nothing in the world is quite worth gelling exciled about. I stared at her searchingly. But there was no reading that dark lovely face. Her rouged lips were smiling lightly—or was it mockingly at me—her dark eyes, often so stormy, were for the moment clear and limpid. Was it my imagination that she looked too innocent? But there was no lime for the- ori/mg. A car stopped outside. There were heavy stops on the flagstones and someone lifted and let fall the heavy knocker on the hall door. "Kathy," I said, abruptly. "Derek's been murdered. He's in tho ravine. The police are here now. Tell them you don't know dug into her arm skin and steadying the HOPE GOSPEL TABERNACLE North Main and Ave. D Paul R. Gaston, Pastor "Earnestly Contending for- Faith." Sunday School—9:45 a. m. Guy E. Gasye, Superintendent. Morning Worship—11 a. m. The pastor will preach the first in a series of four sermons from Christ's Sermon on the Mount. In these days, when there are so many denominations, each with a mass of its own peculiar teachings, and when so-called Modernism or Liberalism is seeking to undermine the very foundation of Christian faith, thinking people must ask, "What is Truth?" What must I belfeve? What is essenlial? For tho answer we will go to the Master Himself. The Sermon on Ihe Mount was Christ's "Key Note" speech in which He clearly outlined His "platform" and his policies. It could well be called The Constilu- lion of Ihe Kingdom of Heaven. Here in Ihe simplest and most con- cenlraled form are the basic "MUSTS" of the Christian faith. The subject Sunday will be "The Elements of a Happy (Blessed) Life."
