GUIDE of the STARS Five Star Fashions Happiness Eludes Individuals Who Harbor Possessive Sense, Declares Western Spirit Mentor Pastor Calls on Teddy Roosevelt, "The Tireless" and Finds the Big Game Hunter Resting His Feet By BREWSTKR ADAMS For 25 Years Reno's Baptist Minister editor whose name 1 neglected to ask permission to use commented: "The Chicago Exposition . did more to bring America out of the slump that all the governmental moves to date." And he proved his assertion by facts and figures of national business directly credited to sales at that Fair. "I'm glad to see Fairs come; I'm glad to see San Francisco plan for 1939; I hope they keep coming until we're all in the black." OTHER WRITERS are more fortunately placed. They don't have to worry about the financial setup of the nation. They can go gallivanting off across the face of the world seeking those items that are purely entertainment not for them--'es alone, but for their readers. ROBERT LEE ESKRIDGE is one such. Writer and artist both, he now is steaming Pacific waters en route to Hawaii and later "wherever the mood directs me." In the Hawaiian Islands he's going to do a book on Kameha-meha. the only king who ever "'d land that is now a part of the American nation. Bob Esk-ot was in to say hello the other day. We talked over Manga Reva, far south in the Gamblers whose name Is the title of one of his books, and we roamed in conversation coral atolls that have been the making of countless authors. SUCH MEN STIR the wanderlust In me, always. No matter when a vacation maybe due if due they start the imagery of clicking wheels in my mind, and set off a longing to traveling the high roads to IN San Francisco there is a surprising nip to the air today. Along the streets of Chinatown the fog just skims the gilded pagoda tips, and in the still streets the perfume of incense moves heavily. The atmosphere of the whole city is strange, unreal. Street cars roll with their usual clangor, cable cars climb laboriously the "north of Market" hills, but there is that certain something in the air indefinable that has made San Francisco one of the three great "short story w tne nation. ONE WOULD THINK it would be comparatively simple to lay a finger on the items of likes and dislikes about a city. Generally one can, but in some cities the feeling is that of a picture. One likes it or not. There is a balance, an individuality, a personality that sets it apart as something beyond a mere gathering of streets, buildings and the throngs of people. GREAT FAIR CITIES are usually like that. It may be their generosity. San Diego exhibited that in its still current Exhibition. "It is not." a resident mentioned the other day. "the amount of business we ourselves received. It is the amount the Exposition stirred up for the nation as a whole." To San Diego, or Chicago, or San Francisco in 1939, there is the Immediate influx of transient visitors who each drop thair few dollars. To the nation at large there are the hundreds of orders for merchandise displayed at those expositions. CONSCIENTIOUS WRITERS recognize this, and for that reason aid in boosting along such events. As one nationally known RT?f2 X- W I ;i ft THIS is a difficult week and no Important undertakings should be started. Financial conditions will cause acute trouble In the world. The papers will carry news of strange rumors, accusations and distorted or confusing talcs in general. Travel, correspondence and contracts are under very unfavorable vibrations. Matters concerning relatives are likely to come to the fore and require careful handling; Sunday: A good day for assimilating new ideas and for mental work. Monday: Guard your speech. Deceptive or inexact messages may reach you. Tuesday : Excellent for most matters. Hard work will bring good results. Wednesday: New ventures should be carefully avoided today. The evening In energetic but ias quarrelsome vibrations. Thursday: A chaotic horoughly unreliable day. and Friday: Mentally stimulating. Good for love affairs and for nmpnnionship with elders.

NEW SOVIET COW AMONG their other experiments, the Russians have crossed a cow and a yak. The result is a new creature under the sun. known as a "khninnk." Economically, the animal is a tremendous success, giving about 10' more milk than tho average cow. weighing 100 pounds more than either of its parents, and cupable of carrying .1 load of a ton or more. How (ho "khninnk" feels al)out It, no one knows. East Meets missed the man who never worries. I thought 1 had met him at the head of a large business. He seemed so placid, so undisturbed, so efficient. I asked him the sec ret of his success. "I never worry; never let busi ess get the best of me," he ex plained. Later his wife took him to, a sanitarium and recently I aid p.ayer for his eternal quiet business reverses had broken hoth mind and heart. Fo. a tim : 1 thought 1 had found him in a friendly surgeon whose nerves were so steady. He gave me Ills word that he did his best and never worried. I stood by the bedside of a patient of his. when he found that a very critical operation he had performed was not successful. I gathered him in my arms as we went out into the Corridor. I have h'.ia:'d of the man who never was wrong. The Chinese say there were two men always right, one died and the other has not be.'n bo.-n. Aly cynical friend . says that it was his wife's first husband. Of course we know some who say they are right which shows they are wrong. You remember they offered a prize to the man who could tell the biggest lie. They tried to get the preacher to enter but he remonstrated that he had never told a lie; whereupon they presented him, the prize. A better man I have never known than an old Scotch surgeon who gave his talents and service to the poor without compensation. Yet it was he who accosted his Minister with the query: "Well, Dominie, what do you know that's good for an old sinner like me?" ALWAYS I" have heard folks talk about the man who has no troubles. You can imagine that the writer listens to a lot of confessions and I assure you that troubles are not respecters of persons. Long since I have lost any ability to distinguish between the rich and the poor, the high and the low, the wise and the stupid. Troubles are relative. It is the emotion which hurts, not the event. Sawdust out of our little girl's doll brought tears, where she would not flinch if blood was drawn. I don't think anybody ever visited Reno whom I envied less thnn Barbara Hutton. She had forty millions in money and forty millions in misery. Our prisoners who go out into the yard for exercise had more freedom than she. Which reminds me that I would like to meet the man who is content, happy when he gets what he thinks would make him happy. But wants are accumulative. If you get the new car, you must have a radio for the children, another wiper for the windshield to satisfy the wife, and it all is naught without a catchy license number. We must find happiness in what we have not. It Isn't possession: it's THEODORE ROOSEVELT-Teddy to us who loved him spent a day in Reno "Teddy, the tireless" was his fame. "Teddy, the tired" is my remembrance. And I loved him the more for it. You see all the people 1 have ever known get tired and nobody gels quite as tired as I do. They all walk in earthly clay and they have heavy feet, just as I have. But Roosevelt that apo:jtle of the strenuous life, who kept all Brewster Adams the strings vibrating, who ran where others walked and fainted not, nor grew weary; I would meet the famous man who never tired. We gave him A busy day, speeches, receptions, barbecue with him cutting meat, and he never slowed. They sent me to call him. No boy ever pulled a door bell with more trepidation. This mighty lion hunter would surely be pacing up and down within. But instead a friendly voice called, "Come in." There sat the great Roosevelt with his shoes off, his stockinged feet resting on a lounge, and. a book of Western 'adventures in his hands. "Sit down a moment. I was just resting my feet. They're mighty tired," he stated in the most human way. Somehow it was comforting to lie. I had missed finding "The Man Who Never Tired." But I never pull on the slippers over my weary dogs but I feel that "Me and Teddy" both had aching feet. So. 1 am still looking for the famous myth the man who never wearies, never grows worn from the old grind, never tires from the heat and the burden of the day, who meets the demands, the annoyances, the criticisms, the labors of the day and wearies not. . Perhaps, but I fear not, it will be a woman who never feels drudgery: who can stand at the sink and the stove and the board and never reach for the stool nor sigh for rest: who can get up early and send the children to school, nnd stay up late at night waiting for them to come home, and never sink from need of sleep nor be weary with anxiety.

SILENT APPLAUSE ATRAVKMNG theater group in Kiis.slu, known as "The Polar Theater," gives plays in Arctic fishing villages, aboard batges anil ice breakers ami in clubs of snowbound outposts. Fourteen Soviet artists were chosen from the Moscow New State Theater. They take with them full stage sets, costumes, mid u collapsible stage. Trips from point to point are often ir.nde in open fishing bouts. through heavy seas In wet weather . . . where an artist can freeze us quickly as anyone else On their first stop at an out lying village, the audience listen- I with the utmost attention - laughing where comedy called for laughter, weeping at pathos silent at dramatic moments. The curtain fell on the final act. The entire east came to the stage for applause. Hut not one hand clap ped. The silence was unbroken. The players later learned that this was the primitive natives manner of expressing deep appreciation. NEW DOLLAR SIGN ANEW dollar sign has been designed by Henry Mencken, formerly editor or the American Mercury. He agrees with Al Smith that the present silver plere la a "baloney" dollar and that to designate currency worth only ft! OS cents by the "t" mark, is Inanproprlate. Mr. Mencken's new symbol -cut especially for him by a linotype company Is a capital B with two vertical lines cutting through it: B for baloney, the vertical lines in memory of the old dollar.
