BY ALICIA HART NEA Staff Writer To win a rcpulalio,-, as a good hostess moans more than serving appetizing food and a variety of drinks, having the latest dance records and (wonder of wonders) a partner for every woman. It also means making everyone feel that entertaining them is fun and that you are having as good a time as they are, rather than giving the- impression that il has been a terrific ordeal to plan and you are absolutely worn out with last- minute preparations. So, whenever you intend to have a few friends in, take a tip from one of society's most charming hostesses, Mrs. Donald B. Tansill, and make n habit of completely relaxing for IT) minutes at least, before the first guest arrives. Whether she is to m-c the novelty dances and contests at the popular service men's Two-for-Ono Canteen during luncheon, or entertain .that evening at home.

Zoot-Suiters Whipped by Service Men Los Angeles, June 8 — <fi>)— Civil and military police early today succeeded in dispersing thousands of service men and civilians in the downtown business district after a night of disorders in which x.ool-suiled youths ,were ferreted out by sailors and soldiers who divested at least 50 of their bi /arre 'attire. . ' By 1 a.m. police and sheriff.'? deputies had arrested 24 civilians, 11 sailors and five soldiers ?bh charges of disturbing the peace and unlawful assembly. In three nights of battling with service men, who maintain they and their girl friends have been "pushed around" at random by hooligans, more than 100 youths in real pleat trousers and knee-length coats were jailed on vagrancy counts.. Police Chcif C. B. Horrall declared a general riot alarm last night, summoning 1,000 policemen to special duty. Navy shore patrolmen and military police in loops and afoot, also toured streets teeming with service men and spectators and jammed with traffic. ... Cars and taxis carrying bands of bluejackets and sold ie r s sped through the district, halting at theaters,' cafes, penny arcades and dance halls in search of zoot suiters. Victims, their clothes ripped from them, were left on sidewalks. Ambulances took three to emergency hospitals, where they were treated and re-clad. None was seriuosly hurt. Order was restored after military authorities declared out of bounds th e entire downtown part of Main street, where most of the disturbances took place, and Chief Horrall ultimately released the 1.0(10 riot squad officers from duty.

Churchill Tells (Continued From Page One) Food Supply Situation Looks Critical North Africa. It made no mention whatever of the much larger Axis losses. Optimistic but restrained, his statement served to confirm the British public's summer hope that a large scale Allied invasion of Europe is not far off. Warning against over - confidence, Churchill .told Commons that much hard fighting lay ahead before final victory could be achieved. He made il plain that lh c plans laid in Washington called for "lhc mosl intense and violent" attacks upon the Axis and referred to "op Washington, June 8 — (/P) —Un- tension office, less things look up, be ready to ' change your diet somewhat or pull in your belt, come 1944. The Agriculture Department is concerned about the situation in some-foods. Its bureau of economics, in a review, said today there are enough rationed foods on hand, together with expected production, lo maintain present ealing levels for Ihe remainder 'of 1943. But here's Ihe rub — unralioned foods are n ot to plentiful and th e anticipated supplies for Ihe fall monlhs are not too favorable. That goes for eggs, cereals, fruits and vegetables. Vegetable about 13 per Pasture is the cheapest Hernpstead county farmers grow for any kind of livestock, d&dared Oliver L. Adams, county agent. A recent study made in 10 states-" shows that 100 pounds of total,. digestible nutrients obtained frorru pasture cost only 04 cents; while the same amount from alfalfa hay cost 83 cents; from corn $1.38; and from oats $2.02. Good, well-managed pastures are also very effective in controlling • erosion and reducing water runoff, the county agent said. Experiments have shown, he said- that a good cover of dense vegetation is 300, times more effective in holding soil' and six times more effective in retaining rainfall 'than clean-cultivated fields on the same kind of land. "With increased livestock numbers, and a greater demand for feed," the county agent said,. "Hernpstead county livestock farmJ ers should provide ample acreage of good, improved pasture to provide a cheap source of good feed, and, at the same time, reduce soil erosion to a minimum."

The plans, he indicaled, embrace all aspecls of Ihe global war, bul he reported particularly that Allied •commanders in North Africa were "resolute in the plans they have made" and thai their troops are eager for the atlack at the earliest moment.

Declaring Ihal Ihe "Germans seem lo be slaking their hopes on the U-boat war," he asserted that Allied successes in ovcrcomnig this menace may well prove the "fateful milestone" in the batlle lo smash Killer's power.

Early freezes have cut crops of apricots, cherries, peaches, plums and prunes materially below 1942. The peach crop in southern stales may be .but half of. its normal size. Supplies of eggs in. the fall and winter, "will be considerably below current levels," the reporl said. Livehlock may be affecled adversely. Unless there are extraordinary grain yeilds, the present level of production cannol be maintained beyond 1943, it was said. Consumption of feed grains now threatens to exceed production. The potato supply for the year was calculated at 125 pounds per capita, a total crop of about 400,000,000 bushels. The bureau said the expected winter crop would not be big enough lo permit a rate o£ consumption as high as the first quarter of this year.

While I was phoning I saw a big black ambulance come up the drive. They had come i'or Derek's body. But it must nave been two hours before Deputy Shaw came back into the house. He said ne would have to have a statement from each of us as to where we had been between 12 and 1 o'clock. So, I thought, thal's when Ihe coroner had decided lhat Derek was oiled. Belwe wus viiic ,'etn 12 t and 1, Connie anr ng the hour in question. Sarah said she had been in the kitchen, and Clara that she had been serv- ng lunch to Connie and me in the dining room, and to the twins and ir nurse in the breakfast room at the same time. I had just remembered that Connie had left the table while she and I were ealing. She had said something about reminding Miss Lake that Judy was to have no sugar. She must have been gone from the dining room for five minutes. CAST away, my and * * sudden suspicion felt like a fool. I had been al lunch in Ihe dining room. Later we had taken tne twins out on the east terrace— but that must have been after 1 o'clock. Kathy said .she had been in her room. She said she had come back about 11 and nad nad a headache and hadn't wanted any lunch. Shaw seemed interested. "You came back—Miss Kraik? had you been?" Afler all, Connie was the only one of us—omitting the servants— who wouldn't have a reason for wishing Derek dead. She didn't know him. Thinking all this out, I missed Deputy Shaw's next question. He repeated it brusquely: "Don't you have a chauffeur?" But John was out as a suspect. As I explained to the deputy, I nad sent him early that morning with the station wagon to get the motor for our boat which was being repaired in Middieton. He wasn't back yet. Shaw said he'd see him later. "That all the servants?" he asked snapping shut his notebook "No-o,' 1 I admitted reluctantly ''There : s Margaret Grady, my housekeeper." : Kathy's face had gone while.

S HE was sitting as I had lef her. The chief deputy's manner $£ led perceptibly at sight of her. "Mrs. Grady," he said, "I am lere to investigate the death of our grandson. We have reason o oelieve that he was killed be- ween noon and 1 o'clock. As a matter of routine, I'll have to isk you some questions. Can you remember where you were at that ime?" It was then Margaret put her hands up to her face and began 0 sob. She rocked back and torth, tears trickling between her ;narled fingers. "No—no—no." It was obvious even to the deputy that Margaret was in no condition to oe questioned. We went back into the upper hall. "The rest of your family would know Derek Grady, now, wouldn't they?" he snapped sarcastically. I was too weary tc parry his questions. "Derek's mother died when he was born," J told the deputy. "He lived in this house until he was 17 years old. Then—he went to live with his father." There was no need to go on with what litlle I knew of his life since then. From his ready identification of the body, it was evident that Deputy Shaw knew more about Derek's recent activities than I did. "Besides his grandmother, my granddaughter end I are the only ones nere who knew him. The other servants are new, and my daughter-in-law never met him," 1 finished, The deputy stared hard at me but there was a change in his manner. He offered me an apology. "I'm really sorry we have to bother you and your household in this manner, Mrs. Kraik. But the man was killed on your place, and we have to do our duty." I accepted his apology stiffly and stood at the head of the stairs and watched him go down. Clara showed him out. I supposed that was the last I would, see of Sam Shaw. But I was mistaken. <T'o Be Continued)' 'Bul I can assure the House that taking some of the weight off Russia and giving more speedy and effective aid lo China and giving a stronger measure of security lo our beloved Australia and New Zealand — these are never absent for one moment from our thoughts and aims." The might of American is deployed far over the Pacific and is laying an ever stronger grip on the outlying defenses of Japan and offering every moment to the Japanese fleel Ihe supreme challenge of sea power," he added. The prime minister alluded to the far eastern phases of the struggle by declaring that "Ihe steady wearing down og German and Japanese air forces is proceeding remorselessly." "The enemy who thought that in the air would be their weapon of victory are now finding it the first, cause of Iheir ruin," he said. He declared that the sudden collapse of the German and Italian armies in Tunisia was significant, but warned thai "no undue expec- 1 development! "We are prepared to win this war by hard fighting and if necessary by hard fighting alone," he said. Churchill opened his first war review since the statement he gave the House on Feb. 11 after the Casablanca conferences by declaring: "As the Allied war effort passes into the offensive phase and as its scale and pace grows continually more and more frequent consultations between the staffs and those conceited with tin; high control become necessary." "There have been no sort of differences such as occurred in the last war inevitably on account of the forces at work between politicians and military men," he said, adding: "I shall make no predictions as to what will happen in the future and still less in the near future. All I can say is that the Anglo-American policy, strategy and economy of the war was brought into lull focus and function in those IS days of talks in Washington."
