Ramon bowed elegantly from the waistline, rising with alacrity, and wiggled, eel-like, through the mob. The ballroom of the Hotel San-souci was crowded. It was the fateful Friday afternoon of th big charity fashion-show. Spring sun-shins filtering through the high windows mingled with th softly glowing light within te splash itself on hundreds of little tea-tables gay with flowers and th shimmer of silver and china. As gorgeous girls In gorgeons gowns paraded on th horse-shoe runwsy that had been built out from the stage, there were many braathles "An I" and "Ohsl" from th audience. eared fingers she held her jade cigarette holder. The- other hand toyed with a long string of Jade that hung from her throat. Yet with all her air of languor. It struck Lusna forcibly there was something primeval here. Like some beautiful animal of the jungle that relax before a foray. Under th calm, a fire. Something that stirred one oddly, thought Luana, whether of repulsion or attraction he did not know. The young man named Ramon waa whiepering something to his companion. It wa evident h was Infatuated with her, although sh wa certainly older than he was. He had no ayes for th dozens of handsome young contestant who warmed everywhere. Not that any of them approached this woman in beauty or icx-appeal, thought Luana. 6h stood alone.

BETWEEN 20 AND 45 Army experts pay attention to such statistics as the number of boys reaching the age of 20 years every year and like to know the male- population of a country between the ages of 20 and 45 year? Germany, during 1937. will have 313.700 youths reaching 20 years, which gives it an advantage over Great Britain's 296.900 and France's 171,000. Moreover, according to the German army year book for 1937, in 1950 Germany will have at her disposal 12.994.-000 men of military age, while Great Britain will have only 8.721,-000 and France 6,790.000. -. HOUSING A NATIONAL NEED When President Roosevelt stressed the fact that millions of Americans live in homes which lack modem facilities and actually breed disease, he directed attention to one of the sore spots of life in this country. He might have added that, in many instances, livim? conditions also promote immorality. The problem does not exist in the large cities, where slums abound, any more than in the smaller urban communities and on the farms of the nation. Lack of adequate housing is a national problem that can not be solved by blaming selfish landlords although there is something that can be done to curb the rapacity or a minority among them. In the United States, in the! five years before 1929, the nation built more than 400,000 homes a year but in the six years beginning with 1930 less than that number was built. The shortage of homes, during this six year period, was more than 2.000.000. 8YNOPSI3 ' Karonta to her horn in Los Anreles from college, beautiful Klisabsth Harmon mstts Gerald BTUten, stoek brakes.
