BY ALICIA HART % NEA Staff Writer Lately I've had quite a few lellers asking what to do to reduce thighs. In most eases exercise is all thai is necessary lo lake off inches from Ihe fatty upper part of the logs. But I'm, afraid there are few Spartan- like characters who will get down on the floor each day to bend, stretch, roll and wist off the extra poundage. Most women exercises that are also fun. and for them there is no more effective means of attain- ing long, lean, limber limbs than cycling. Hollywood starlets—and you must admil their streamlined chassis arc tops—cycle everywhere. For instance. Adelc Mara of the new picture "Destroyer," cycles, from her home to the market, or to visit friends, and when her gas ration runs low, to the studio. • It's true that bicycles are under priority, but if you don't own one, borrow your neighbor's or make a deal with the grocery boy to hire his. However you manage it. do get out on the open road and pedal pounds off your figure.

The WLB in a brief statement late yesterday, said the labor disputes had been determined finally when it directed the 521,000 strikers. To accept substantially the terms of the 1941-42 contract, plus a few WLE concessions that added up to pay raises of about 20 cents a day. Hence, the board figured a new contract on that basis should be signed. This stand was announced after Interior Secretary Tckes, government operator of the mines, had referred in summoning owners 1o a conference today to "the controversy between the mine woric- ers and the operators," and expressing hope it would be settled speedily. Immediately the WLB shot baok that it, had made the final determination of the dispute and as far as it was concerned, there wasn't any controversy. Behind this attitude, informed sources said, was a decision of the board that Lewis should be chal- longed on his Oct. 31 deadline and his stipulation that work would go forward only as long as the government runs the mines. Equally secret but just as authoritative was the report that the WLB may approach the White House in a day or two — through War Mobilization Director James F. Byrnes — for support in its demands that a contract be signed. Held out as possible sanctions if the UMW refuses to sign were the possibilities of slopping check- off of union dues or freezing the union's treasury. Meanwhile, Secretary Ickes indicated he believed it would be necessary for the government not only to continue but to enlarge on its operations of the coal workings. He said the loss of coal production — estimated at 20,000,000 tons resulted from three walkouts in seven weeks — may bring on rationing of fuel. Such rationing, or allocation, probably would be confined to the shortage areas, he said, rather than on a nation-wide scale. Ickes said also he was thinking abput the long-range angle in the coal fight, the miners' demands for portal-to-portal (underground travel) pay. A survey of how much time is thus consumed may be conducted, since operators and the union disagree on the time. Some of the miners showed resentment at failure to agree on underground travel rates. Thousands still remained away from their jobs but predictions were plenty that the rank and file would be digging coal shortly. About half of Pennsylvania's 200 miners, including the anthracite belt, still were absent. Absenteeism averaged about 25 per cent in West Virginia, 50 per cent in Ohio. Almost all of Alabama's 26,000 were still out and little more than half of Kentucky's workers returned. Short of coal, U. S. Steel shut down 10 blast furnaces. The walkout cost the nation between 75,000 and 100,000 tons of steel, the War Church News UNITY BAPTIST CHURCH Elder J, T. Gilmore, Pastor Sunday School—10 a. m. Preaching—11 a. m. B. T.

COPYRIGHT. 1943. NEA SERVICE. INC.\ GEORGE CHAPTER XXI nPHE thing as I saw it was just crazy enough to be possible: Clint Mattison, a gangster, wanted by the police, renting the Cottage as a hideaway, and then having his plans upset when Derek Grady came to Kraiktower lo hide, too. And here was where another detail dovelailed perfectly. It had been the morning of the day we found Derek's body thai Mattison had come up to the big house to pay his rent. All I had to do was to suppose that Derek had seen Mattison and recognized him as he went back to the Collage, and that Mattison had shot Derek rather than risk exposure. He had a gun. I had seen it the night in the Cottage when I had fled from the Thing on the path. He had taken a gun and a flashlight out of his desk. Of course, there was the book Mattison had given Kathy to read, the one she had left on my desk in the study. But if Mattison was as clever as he appeared to be, he might have figured il was safer lo assume Ihe name of a real writer and supply himself with some of said writer's work to make it more convincing. I was quite excited about it by the lime I reached home, and the first thing I did was to look in the study for Mattison's book. I got the publisher's name and address from the fly leaf and then convinced the telephone girl in the village that I really wanted to send a telegram. Sulkily, she read the message back to me: PLEASE WIRE FULL DESCRIPTION CLINT MATTISON AUTHOR OF TIME FOR MURDER URGENT. * * * T GOT downstairs the next day •*• just in time to see George Baker arrive. He stepped out of a gray convertible with red leather seals, and I blinked twice to be ure I wasn't looking at a cut from Csquire. Kathy gave him her cheek and he pecked at it before piping up "Ghastly business, isn't this, darling?" I grunted. How Kathy was going to stand his inane remarks Ihe rest of her life was more than I could imagine. But Kathy, with a straight face assured him that it was a bac business, and George shook hands, with Walter and Connie and came toward me. And I was conscious only of my personal dislike foi him! It seems impossible now thai I shouldn't have felt some premonition at that moment of what his coming meant. It didn't lake a clairvoyant to see that George was plenty bothered about the notoriety centering on the girl he was going to marry, and that he was at white heat to clear it up at once. He said that most of the papers were letling Derek's dealh slide as a gang murder, but that there were all kinds of rumors going around. I asked what kind of rumors, but he wouldn't be specific. He had the attitude that we were too stupid, or too naive, to know how to handle the situation and it put my back up. I smiled at him, and slipped the knife in casually. "George, I think you ought to know that the police have discarded the idea of a gang murder even if the newspapers have not." He ogled me rather foolishly. "What—what do you mean?' 1 "The Chicago police have checked up on Derek's Chicago pals, and not one of them could possibly have been near Kraiktower the day Derek was killed." George took out an expensive handkerchief and mopped his brow. "Then that leaves—" I gave the knife a mean turn. "Just us here at the house as suspects—and the servants are accounted for." * * * T-IE stared at me. I went on. "You have guessed why Derek came here, haven't you?" "To hide, I suppose." i "Nothing of the kind. He was blackmailing Kathy." That . certainly punctured George's opinionated smugness. He nearly fainted. It was the only fun I had had that day. But it didn't last long. He mopped his brow again, and his logical mind seized upon the one thing that had stopped the police from making any arrest so far. "After all, it doesn't really matter—as long as the police haven't found the weapon." The weight settled back on my heart. "But they have," I said tonelessly. "A friend of ours is going to hand it over to them today." Walter gave me a murderous look. He hadn't thought my frank tactlessness a bit funny. He told George about the gun being found in the pool, and the bit of cloth caught in its trigger. George looked desperate, and it was then he said the thing that started everything moving to its swift and appointed end. "That's fine! All the police have to do now is check that bit of cloth with the clothes of all you suspects and find out whose coat or dress was covering the gun when it was fired. There'll be powder marks on it, and probably a hole where the bullet went through, certainly a hole where the gun hammer took out a piece of the cloth." All at once I was seeing Connie as she had been dressed that morning, the morning of the day Derek was killed. Connie in that slack suit with its dark coat cut like a man's. The slack suit that I had thought since she had worn, to cover the bruise on her arm . . . but . . . she could have carried a gun concealed in a pocket of that coat! And Kathy flying down the stairs when Mattison and I went out into the hall that morning. Kathy in a polka-dotted sport dress and wearing a black wool coat with huge patch pockets! For that matter I had worn, black that day myself. .ITo Be Conttauedy HOPE GOSPEL TABERNACLE North Main and Avenue D Paul R. Gaston, Pastor Sunday School—9:45 a. in. Guy E. Basye, Superintendent.
