No one is an "old maid." There is no such thing as an old maid anymore. They are bachelor girls. Vintage bachelor girls maybe, but still bachelor girls. Bachelor girls, in most cases, don't become bachelor girls on j purpose. They are born that way —and haven't as yet been able 1o do anything to change the situation. To the average middle-aged male inhabitant of a swivel chair, all office maidens in the stenographic pool look as much alike as trout in a babbling brook. They dress the same, talk the same, »nd nibble the same sandwiches at lunch. But If he looks carefully at them, a thoughtful observer can note many differences. Here are a few typical bachelor girls you can recognize in almost any office: Romantic Roberta—She keeps a picture of Gary Grant on her desk because, she explains, "He reminds me so awfully much of the kind of man I never get to meet." Hopeful Helen—When she was 12 her mother gave her a piggy bank and said, "Put a dime in it every day so you'll be able to buy a nice trousseau." Helen did. Now her apartment is so full of piggy banks it looks like a miniature version of the Chicago stockyards. The banks hold enough dimes to buy not only a trousseau but a department store. Hopeless Hilda -"I've met a lot of marrying men,' she wails. The trouble is they were already married. All the good ones are gone." Opportunistic Opal—She wants to marry money and took her job because she heard the boss had .three unwed sons. She quits in a huff when she learns the ages of his sons—4, «, and 9. Sourgrapes Sally—She has hated all men ever since one of her boy -iends borrowed $150 from her «nd ran off with a waitress. "I wouldn't trade a phonograph record for any man I know," she says. The feeling is mutual. No man that knows Sally would trade a broken phonograph record for her. Grain Inspector Falls To Death STUTTGART, Kan.

She yearns to wed a college English professor but admits she'd settle for a gar age mechanic "so long as he loves to read Spinoza aloud." Practical Priscilla—She is s confident that some day a knigh on a white horse will gallop up free her that she keeps a new saddle in her office locker—jus in case he should show up riding bareback. Honest Hortense - "What's ih use of kidding yourself?" sh asks. "I'm ready to marry any guy in long pants who'll take m out of this nice cool office and pu me to work slaving over a ho kitchen stove I can call m; own."

The children in Mrs. Lawrence ity in the Chanute area a half century ago, is again making news because of his unique talent. The object of this unusual title is Dr. James Butin, at 68 the oldest practicing physician in Chanute. Ever since his teen-age days in Fredonia, he has been known for his ability to imitate perfectly more than 25 bird calls. "Pipes Like the Birds" raved a newspaper article published in 1911 on Dr. Butin's first public appearance in Chanute. Then an 18-year-old protege of Prof. Thurlow Lieurance, band director and musical composer, young Butin's fame already was spreading. Lieurance happened to hear Butin imitate a bird call in Fredonia five years before. He took the youngster under his wing, coach- Then came Chautauqua, a traveling entertainment system. For three years, he traveled throughout the Midwest and north-central states. Groups were formed during the summer months to tour for 10 or 11 weeks, stopping one day in towns to give afternoon and evening performances.

Butin's public whistling per formances declined when he left. Kansas. His ability was remem bered at the 25th and 40th re unions of his class of 1916.

"It might hot seem like a lot n Philadelphia, or maybe some other large city. But we're a mall community. It means th« world to us." "It will take roughly 50 per cent of the spending power from the community at the time of closing.. [I will hurt merchants in Bloomburg, Hazelton and Wilkes-Barre too because residents from th. nearby areas work at the plant." Schuyler, who will take office Jan. 1. is also an employe of the plant. He works as a buyer in the purchasing department. What will he do should the plant close?
