HOPE STAR Lemon Rinse Gives Hair an Ultra Lustrous Look and Soft Texture TAT OGDEN: keeps her hair bright. BY ALICIA HART NEA Staff Writer It lakes a little elbow grease to keep your hair beautiful even when you're blessed with naturally shinning locks and a normal, healthy scalp. Pal Ogdcn, glamorous, Honolulu- born blond who is tops among Manhattan models, recommends brushing your hair for five minutes every single night, and using a lemon rinse for thai ultra lustrous look. "Some pcaplc think a lemon rinse is drying," Pat observes. "but I find that It keeps my hair sofl and bright. I simply squeeze two lemons, strain the juice, mix it into a pitcher of water, and use Ihis as the third rinse after a. washing with any liquid shampoo." A rinse with plain waler follows Ihc lemon rinse. Girls whose scalps are naturally very dry might try an oil shampoo combined with the lemon rinse. Warm vegelable oil, for example peanut oil, should be rubbed on the scalp and kept on a few hours or overnight, before the locks arc washed throughly. Group Favors Bill to Create 'Food Czar' Washington, June 24 (/P)— Reflecting congressional dissatisfaction over home front war opera- lions, the House agriculture committee today approved a bill to create a "food czar" with com- plcle control over wartime food production, distribution, pricing and rationing. Chairman Fulmcr (D-SC) said the measure, frowned upon by President R o s s e v e 1 t, would "create a czar for foods similar to the czars now handling the War Production Board (WPB) rubber and oil." The sweeping legislation, if it becomes law, would take from the Office of Price Administration (OPA) all food rationing and pricing powers and out them under the war food administrator, Chester C. Davis. Approval of the bill, which is sponsored by Fulmcr, was by an 18 lo 8 committee vote, with all 12 Republican members and six Democrats supporting it. Eight Democrats opposed. Such an all-powerful food administrator had been suggested by the Republican Congressional Food Study committee. might never have known of Phyllis' marriage. A local comiTu'tteo is now making preparations for selection of another .sweetheart. The boys say Ihc new one will be a Baton Rouge fiirl and that if she sees them often enough, "she won't have time to get mixed up with the Navy. Deaths Last Night By The Associated Press Mrs. W. B.

KING London, June 24 (/P)— A deadly :argo of more than 15,000 tons of oombs has been unloaded on Germany in the past month by giant British bombers two thirds of which have fallen on industrial centers in the Ruhr valley where the Nazis themselves admit "incredible" devastation. According to British figures, 10,000 tnos of explosives rained ruin in the period from May 22 to June 22 on seven arms centers in that area — Dortmund, Essen, Wupperlal, Bochum, Obcrhausen, Krcfeld and Muclheim. Joining the RAF in this German- described "Battle of the Ruhr," American four - cngincd bombers struck the synthetic rubber plant at Huls June 22 in their "first venture into the highly industrialized valley, of which Propaganda Minister Paul Joseph Gcobbels once said: "The destiny of the Ruhr is the destiny ol Germany itself." The valley already has become the most bomb - battered area in the world and the British say there is more still to come in the steadily mounting Allied air offensive against all Axis - dominated Europe. The Ruhr, which has 54 per cent of the hard coal of Axis eruote, 37 per cent of the pig iron, 34 per cent of steel ingots and castings, still remains, in the words of one high British official, "the world's best target." "You can't pick up a coal mine and carry it away," he declared. "And Germany's transportation is strained already to such an extent that moving plants would seriously impede production." Only three Ruhr towns of any c o n s c q ucncc — Gelscnkirchcn, Hanbornand Hcrne — have not felt a blow by a major RAF force, one big enough in the air ministry's own words to wipe out a city of 200,000 population in one night. Industrial production in the Ruhr was said on June 9 to have fallen about 35 per cent under 1942. Yanks Abroad Get Another Language London. — (/P)— Another straw in the pre-invasion breezes in this theater is the organization of scores of classes in French, German and other European languages for American soldiers. Although courses in Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Polish and Russian are available special stress is being laid on French and German so that as many men as possible in each combat unit can have a working knowledge of these Uvo languages. The phonograph system of instruction is being used in the program which is under the direction of Captain Clarence Linton of New York and Captain Daniel S. Shank of Cincinnati. Captain Linton is on leace of absence from Columbia University Teachers' College where he was director of personnel.

INC.' ACCUSED CHAPTER XX "T DON'T know who look the gun, or when," I said wearily. "I only know it's gone." Mattison looked from me to Kathy and then to the gun in his hand. "We might try tracing this gun ourselves before wo turn it ovei to the police," he said slowly "Mrs. Kraik, if you'll tell me whore you bought it?" Walter answered. "I got it foi Mother. Bought it at a hardware store in Middlelon." "We can phone there, then, and get the serial number." Matlison spoke briskly. Kathy's voice was like a whip. "No! The girl on the village switchboard hoars everything. Let's take the gun into Middleton and check it. I'll drive you." I couldn't just wait around the house while Ihey were gone. I wont upstairs and changed into slacks and an old sweater and a pair of low-hcclcd oxfords and went out to work in the rose garden. A half hour later tho sun glinted on a windshield in the drive, and Kathy's yellow roadster swung inlo view. She saw me among the roses, slid the car to a stop, said something to Maltison, and came over lo me. Her face was pretty terrible, and her eyes swollen and red from crying. Well, I had known all along that it must bo my gun. "Gram," her voice was under fair control, considering Ihe way she looked, "come for a ride with us. Clint wants to talk to you." It was June and the countryside was lush. Wild roses clustered along the fences, and while-faced lield daisies starred the pastures. Mattison tamped down his vile- smelling pipe, cupped a match in his two hands and lit it. Then he said without looking at me, "It was your gun, Mrs. Kraik." As if that were news to me! Kathy slowed the car to a snail's pate and looked 01 me sidewise. Her voice was as thick with tears as her eyes. "Gram, won't you tell us about it. You can trust Clint. He's with us. We want to help you—and we can't unless we know everything." "Know what?" I said tartly. Mattison took up the task. "Know just why—and how you killed Derek Grady." * * * ]VfY mouth hung open for a moment. "You —you think I killed Derek Grady?" Mattison was patient. "Well, in the first place, your gun has had one bullet fired from it. Kathy says she never knew until today that there was a gun in the house, so it's pretly safe to assume that your daughter-in-law didn't know it either. That leaves you as the most likely person to have used it. "Then there's the matter of the sleeping tablets. You admit giving your housekeeper two of the tablets, but you broke the glass that had contained the medicine that morning. I thought it was merely an accident when I told the police about it. Now—I don't believe it was accidental. You were deliberately trying to destroy evidence against yourself." I glared at him. So it had been dear little Clint Mattison who had told Deputy Shaw about me knocking the glass off the stand and then stepping on it. I might have known. "And then—" ho looked rather sheepish. "I happened to see you through the window of my cottage a couple of days ago, when you were waiting for me. I'm human with a natural amount of curiosity, so after you left I looked to see what you had hidden in the mantel niche. At first I though! you'd hidden that stuff there to try and frame me, but now—I know you were just trying to protect Kathy. If the money and the ring had been found on Grady's body, she'd have been implicated." "This is illuminating," I said bitterly. Mattison shifted uncomfortably bis seat. "I'm not passing judgment on you, Mrs. Kraik. You found out that Grady was blackmailing your granddaughter and you killed him to protect her." * * * mind was beginning lo function again. "And just when am I supposed to have done all this murdering, young man?" Kalherine gave me a look of pure misery. "We know about that, too, Gram—Imogene told me last night. After that chief deputy wormed it out of her she thought she'd better tell one of us so we could figure out what was best to do. You remember Imogene was present, Gram, when the deputy first questioned us. She heard you and Connie tell him that you two were together at lunch when Derek was supposed to have been shot. But she knows that you weren't together all of that time. Connie came into the breakfast room with some instructions about Judy's food and sat down and fed the baby herself. Imogene says Connie must have been in there with her and the children for six or seven minutes," This was too much. "Stop the car!" I commanded. Kathy obeyed out of sheer surprise, I suppose, and the next moment I had fiun open the door next to me and stepped down into the road. "Thanks so much for the ride," I said icily. "I'll walk back." It was dusk when I trudged into the house. It had been a long walk and, with every step, my resentment against Clint Mattison had grown. It was his ingratitude lhat hurt most, for wasn't I the one who had invited him to do a little amateur sleuthing, never dreaming that he would fasten upon me as Suspect Number One? And, thinking about him, it had suddenly dawned upon me how very little we knew about him. He said he was a writer, but what if he wasn't? He looked more like a gangster. .(To Re CoaUftue4A PAGE THRU (Continued From Page One) ither fires in and near Olbia, it was announced. The destroyed enemy tanker was medium sized vessel.

Martindale, Chairman of the County Triplc-A committee, to harvest and sell as much seed as possible fro mthe paslure and winter legume crops grown on their farms this year. The War Food Administration recently announced a purchase program for eight additional lypes ol paslure and winter legume seeds, in an effort to make available sufficient quantities of seed lo mcel wartime demands for increased acreages of forage crops. Lespedeza, bur clover, white dutch, vetch and Austrian winter peas and alfalfa which are among the varieties included in the WFA's 1943 seed purchase program are grown throughout hte county. Mr. Martindale said farmers harvesting seed from the pasture and legume crops grown on their farms will be well paid for their efforts since the Commodity Credit Cor poralion is authorized to pay from five to 65 cents a pound for the seed, depending upon the type anc grade offered for sale. In this connection, Mr. Martin dale warned that seed must mee certain germination standards, and must be free from noxious weeds and other foreign matter, in orde: to be eligible for purchase. Full information concerning thi types of seed most desired, price; for each grade and type, and othe: factors concerning the purchase o the seed by the government, may be obtained from Ihe Hempstead county Triple-A office. Food Subsidies Reviewed by Farm Bureau Reasons for continued oppositioi by the American Farm Bureat Federation lo government food sub sidies have been reviewed by ; member of the board of :i;-.-ect.ir, of the Hempstead County Fam Bureau in a statement submittec to the Hope Star today. "The use of subsidies in lieu o of fair prices at the market to con sumers at a lime when national in come is at record levels is highlj inflationary, first, because it in creases the amounl of excess con sumer purchasing power which can nol be expended for goods, and second, because il adds still fur- Iher to the public debt which mus be financed by greater bond is sues," Monroe Kent of Patmos said. "Such policies," he added, "mere ly subslitute debt inflation for price inflation and of Ihc Iwo, debt in flation is more dangerous." Parity for agriculture is Ihe do clared policy and goal of the gov ernmenl, and has been since 1933 he said, in asking Ihe queslion "i industrial consumers at a time when their purchasing power is the greatest of any nation in the history of the world are not willing to pay fair prices at the market when will they ever be willing to do so?" The present program'to roll back prices for the benefit of only one group and finance subsidies by in creasing the public debt, he said comes at a lime when: 1. Farmers, who have nol struck slaged slowdowns, or been guilty ot absenleeism, are working 70 lo !jf, hours a week, under every i.-on- ceivable handicap, in an effort to feed the world. 2. The average non-farm family is paying a lower percentage of its income for food than at any other time in Ihe pasl 30 years (22 per- cenl now as compared lo 38 percenl at the peak of the lasl World War.) 3. The average industrial worker has more money to spend for food alone each week than his total weekly income in 1929, regarded as a year of; great prosperity. 4. Hourly wage scales are nearly Iwo and one-half limes greater than the peak hourly rales of World War No. 1. 5. Farm prices arc 10 percent lower than those which prevailed during the last war. 6. Farm income has increased by only one billion dollars over '.he peak figure of the last war, while non-farm income has increased more than 55 billion dollars 7. American farmers constitute more than 22 percent of the Naion's population, yet receive less han 10 percent of the national income.
