BY ALICIA HART NEA Staff Writer A beautiful complexion usually goes with health and a well-bc- havccl stomach. So if you wish to improve your skin's appearance, you might start by checking your general physical condition. Mrs. David Knoll, Jr., prominent young New York matron, has a flawless, very fair and naturally rosy complexion, which she attributes in part to a simple stomach settler which she calls a "Sam Lambert Cocktail." It is a cup of warm water mixed with the juice By The Associated Press Washington, June 16 —(/P)—A $2,039,441,504 omnibus appropriations bill, bundling up the fiscal needs of 18 government war agencies, was turned over to Congress today as the nation's economic war chiefs told an epic story of American progress in the battle of the home front. It was the first annual report, the balance sheet for the past year and the budget sheet for the next for such war-born bureaus as the Office of Price Administration (OPA), the War Production Board (WPB), Censorship, the Office of War Information (OWI), and the War Shipping Administration (WSA). Spread over 2,100 printed pages of testimony were the explanations of top officials in charge of directing the country's economic life, from war production to consumer prices. There was praise and criticism from the House Appropriations committee which approved their 1944 allocations with these words: "Great credit is due tho war agencies for what has been accomplished. Mistakes have been made and will be made. They are to be expected. There has been lost mo- lion. The speed of action would not have been attanicd without it. "Improvements have been made and will continue to be made in Ihe funclioning of the war agencies. Constructive criticism has been helpful. It should continue and will be welcomed by the agencies. The type of criticism which stantial use." His opinion drew from Chairman Cannon (D-Mo.) the observation "we cannot escape the fact that Congress has repeatedly in the last few weeks, three or four times by a record vote and over-whelming majorilies, indicaled its emphatic disapproval of subsidies." Rubber Driector William Jeffcrs reported all the synthetic rubber plants should be in operation and producing by the end of Ihe year, and that he was counting on an output of about 80,000 long tons of synthetic rubber next year. He declared there would be at the end of Ihis year about 140,000 tons of synthclic and crude rubber, and estimated production of synthetic rubber by early autumn of 1944 would reach the point where it could supply normal demands. There was strong intimation, loo, that the nation is in for some new rationing programs, but just when they will go into effect was left to speculation Cannon noted that the OPA justifications called for several new programs.

"String beans head the list, then In order of frequency, corn, asparagus, and spinach," she said, while encouraging housewives to efficiently sterilize their products. Miss Fletcher warned the club members to be alert for signs of spoilage, evidenced by (1) the presence of gas bubbles, and if a squirting of liquid when the top is removed (2) the odor of rancid butter (3) mushy appearance of solid parts of food in jar. Later in the progrom, the home demonstration agent, explained the hot water method of canning fruits and tomatoes, then she gave important information on preparing and drying fruits and vegetables.

Though there is no medical background for the soda, she finds a warm drink in the morning is healthful, as is orange, grapefruit and tomato juice. And the idea thai a lovely complexion is Ihc reward of keeping healthy is basic. If you have an occasional blemish, you needn't take it too seriously; but if your skin is stubbornly lifeless or spotted despite adequate surface care, bettor check your health with your physician.

Nelson testified "we arc rapidly pproaching the limit in' our productive capacity in this country." He said the total output in 1943 vould reach approximately $180,100,000,000 and said about half of t would be for direct war production. "From both the military and the production point oil vyeiw," he snid, "I am convinced that we are m the midst of one of the greatest and most powerful developments in history — the development of an almost incredible striking power by means of aircraft." I can report to you that from now on expenditures for our air force will exceed by far the expenditures for any other 'single military category, reaching before the end of 1943 an annual rate of some tens of billions of dollars." , From Price Administrator Prcn- liss M. Brown came the assertion that price control measures had saved the government $25,800,000,000 by the end of 1942, and that that amount would swell to $70,000,000,000 by the end of 1943 "if prices are held at current levels."

The British Broadcasting Corporation relayed the stirring announcement to the empire in a dramatic early morning broadcast. The palace statement said the King was visiting the British First and Eighth Armies and African contingents of the Royal Navy and Air Force and that he also "welcomed this opportunity oi t seeing the United States armies and air forces and the French army, with whom his own forces have been so closely associated in the recent memorable victory." Five counsellors of state, including the queen, were named to reign over Britain during the King's' absence. Apointed by the King before his Queen, were the Duke of Gloucester, his younger brother; th~e Princess Royal, his sister; the Duchess of Fife, his aunt; and the Countess !. oulhesk, hih cousin.

The Duke of Gloucester relinquished his military duties las year to give more assistance to the king with state affairs. The Queen's standard flew this morning from Buckingham, showing she was in residence alone. The King invested Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, Allied commander in chief, with the insignia of Knight of the- Grand Cross of the Order of. the Bath, an honor recently orantcd to him along with Gen. Douglas Mac Arthur, SouthwesT Pacific chief. The honor is one of the highest in the King's power to bestow. King George inspected the Brti- ish Army in France early in 1940, making the trip across the channel in a destroyer, but the present trip is his longest overseas journey since his tour of Canada and the United Stacts before the war started.

We went in two cars. Margaret and Will Grady and his wife in the limousine driven by the faullless John, Walter and Kathy and I in the roadster, Walter driving. Connie pleaded off with a sick headache and went to bed instead. The services were short. Margaret didn't cry at all. She went up to the grave on Will's arm and stood looking down at the closed casket a long time, and then she turned blindly away. A county car was parked in the drive when we returned home, and I saw some deputies down in the ravine. They seemed to be searching for something. Walter went upstairs immediately to see how Connie was. Kalhy, Margaret, Will and his wife also disappeared upstairs, and I went into my study to wait impatiently until the nosy police should leave. I had something to do and not much time to do it in, for not even to save my immortal soul would I have gone into toe woods again after dark. The police poked around down in the ravine and on the side lawn for a long time. I watched them from the study windows. At lasl it dawned upon me that they were looking for the gun—the gun thai had killed Derek. The fine hair lifted along the back of my neck If they found the gun there woulc probably be fingerprints on it And Shaw had had all of us finger-printed as a matter of routine It was nearly dinner time before the officers gave up their search. * * # rpHE spookiness of the nigh before was gone as I crossec the creek and hurried along the familiar wood, path toward, the Cottage. The sun was still couple of hours high in the sky. I stopped, to reconnoitre I rea.ch.e4 the place where J .wisted tree root showing in the center of the path. That was evidently what I had stumbled on in the dark. I pushed my way determinedly hrough the bushes and made nar- •owing circles around the place, but I didn't see anything to account for the light that had been there last night. It looked as if my curiosity was wasted, and then iust as I turned reluctantly to_ go Dack to the path my eye was caught by a metallic gleam where one of the long shafts of sunlight pierced a thick clump of toe berry briers. I walked over to the bushes and there was a spade stuck down in them for concealment. My blood pressure mounted. I pulled the spade out, getting my hand scratched in the process, and looked the ground over again. I saw a place close to the fallen tree where it looked as if the leaf mold had b*en recently loosened. The way I dug would have been a revelation to a WPA man, and suddenly a small brown packet came flying out with the dirt. It was a man's wallet. There was worn lettering on the flap, "D. G.," and inside a thick shea! of fresh uncreased bills, the kind the bank gives you. I took the money out' and counted. It was in bills of $10 and $20; $500 in all Something was still lodged in a corner of the wallet. I shook it A diamond ring came tumbling into my lap. A big square diamond in a platinum setting tha 1 insolently caught the sunlight and flashed it back in streaks of fire I picked it up with clammy fingers. It was Kathy's diamond!' \ * * » TT was true, then, what I had • guessed last night, I reflectec as I unfastened the pin at toe neck of my black sheer dress and slipped toe wallet down in roj bosom nest to my skin. I had known that the note Shav, had found in Connie's room, Ie4 tp her Bjjstskfis con nstead of Connie. 'That was toe discovery I had made as I thought he situation over. Derek had written: "I'm in the old play cave." That would have meaning only to Kathy, It was Kathy who lad played there with him. Connie would know nothing about it. Then I had spent the rest of toe night wondering when and how lonnie had come into possession of the note. If Connie had intercepted toe note before it reached Kathy there was the probability ;hat Kalhy knew nothing about Derek hiding in toe ravine. But knew now that that was out. Kathy had seen Derek. She had given him toe money and her ring. As to why somebody had .later removed these valuables from Derek's body and hidden them in the woods, I hadn't ths foggiest notion. Aside from that mysterious angle, the facts as I knew or could reasonably guess them began to fall into a logical sequence of events. Connie had learned somehow about the note from Derek, and she had decided to see him herself and send him away before he could cause another family scandal. That explained toe bitter quarrel between the girls. And now I could guess, too, where Kathy had been going that morning—the morning of the day we found Derek—when she had almost run over Clint Mattison and me in the lower hall. She must have been on her way to the bank to get this money for Derek. And Deputy Shaw must know it, too. That was why he had asked her repeatedly if she had stopped any place in the village except at the gas station . . . and \yhy he had looked at her so> peculiarly when she denied it. The chief deputy was no fool. He could put two and two together, and there was every chance in the world that he would add it up to four.
