PEOPLES FURNITURE STORE REINHART.. 17 Baltimore St. Recognized Leading Htmw Furnishers in W. Maryland Japanese Actor Sued By Soprano TOKYO—(INS) — Sessu* Hayakawa, globe-trotting Japanese screen actor who recently staged a comeback in two Hollywood productions, is being sued for the return of $40,000 he allegedly obtained from a once-wealthy Japanese soprano in Paris 13 years ago. Michiko Tanaka, now the wife of German screen and stage star Viktor de Kowa, has written a Tokyo attorney from Berlin directing him to start proceedings against Hayakawa, who is now in Japan. She claims she gave Hayakawa furs and jewels valued at $40,000 to help him overcome financial difficulties in the French capital in 1937. _, . Miss Tanaka has buttressed her mail order claim against Hayakawa with a note from him promising to repay her in 1950 as well as pawnshop tickets covering the articles. Hayakawa promptly denied Miss Tanaka's allegations and claimed the money represented her investment in a motion picture entitled "Macao" which Hayakawa was then producing in Paris. Book Hobby CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — (INS) — A Massachusetts woman has an unusual hobby. She reads books. Why is it unusual? Because Virginia Beck goes through an average of 40 books a week in a Cambridge book shop. Miss Beck claims she has read more than 400 books for recreation. ZERMATT, Switzerland—(INS)— A railroad steeple-chase as thrilling and rich in scenic attractions as a transcontinental journey from the Mediterranean coast to northern Norway can be enjoyed in Switzerland in a mere seven hours' ride on the Glazier Express. From Zerinatt, in .the foothills of the Matterhorn, this toy-like train dashes, through-the sun-bathed orchards; of the Valais, over a chain of Alpine passes, down the upper Rhine Valley and up to glamorous St. Moritz, holiday capital of the Orisons, the "Land of 150 Valleys." Entirely hydro - electrified and equipped with the world's most salubrious "air - conditioning" system—wide-open windows—the narrow - gauge train masters a total difference in altitude of close to 25.000 feet on an up-and-down journey of less than 100 miles. A paragon of 20th century styling, with streamlined dining and observation cars, a ride on the Q.E. is as far from the strains of an ordinary railroad trip as a cruise on a magic carpet is from a journey on a burro's back. Passengers from Zermatt arrive at St. Mcritz around five-thirty in the evening after more than seven hours of the kind of sightseeing, to pure mountain air, that has the refreshing effect of an early morning swim. Some of the highlights unfolding outside their especially wide observation windows wUl have been views of the Rhone Glacier from various angles, the legendary castles and monasteries on the Rhone and the Rhine-Rivers and. the Alpine rose fields of the Purka and the Oberlap Passes. Glazier Express through-trains between St. Moritz and Zermatt, one per day in either direction, win run this year until September 10. Service to and from both terminals is on a year-round schedule, but the ^rka-Oberlap connection is not 'operated in winter.

A Government commission urging revision of the outdated Austrian "Family Laws" has come up Witt the "Joint household responsibility' suggestion. after five months of study. Austrian Minister of Justice Otfa Tschadek, commission chief, sail that plan to give mother a voice In the family is only one of 14-point program which if adopted by Parliament would change the nation's 138-year-old laws governing relation of husband and wife. Some other items, recommended by the commission of purists, professors and government planners: If tie wife Is the breadwinner, it's her right to say where the family will live. In any case, she should have equal rights in determining the upbringing of the children. Whether Junior will be a football player or a pianist. Or whether he gets spanked or not. Shell have a say in family business matters.. (As the law stands. Pop has legal authority over his wife's possessions.) She could hold a Job without interference from her husband (Now, he can go to her boss and demand that she be fired.) One concession for the harriei husband remains. The commission said—without comment—that "the wife, upon marriage, win continue to take the name of the husband."

STROMNESS, Orkney Isles—OT— Britain is shipping artifical cherries made with seaweed to America. This latest product is one of many British' chemists have learned to make from the seaweed, most of which is taken from areas off the north and west of Scotland. The discovery of the artificial cherry process crowned seven years of laboratory research by two chemists, Dr. Arnold Spice and William Pleschardt. The cherry-is composed of sugar and .glucose and is covered with a thin, insoluble and edible skin made from the seaweed. It is flavored with natural cherry juice—or other flavors suited to the use for which the product is intended. Skyscrapers Staging Comeback In New York NEW YORK—W—Th« skyscraper, long thought to be on the way out, is staging a comeback. Modern office rental rates are changing the minds of architects and building managers about the economic height of buildings. An interesting example Is afforded by a new 42-story structure at 1407 Broadway, New York. Originally planned as a 24-story structure covering .all the land area, the design was changed to 42 floors with a base covering only 65 per cent of the land. Reason for the change, says S. M. Rirsch, president of the building or. ^anization, is that tenants are will ng to pay premium rentals for light •"H air afforded in tower floors. 80 many women between the »ge« of 38 and 52 have good reason to hate 'change of life' — the time when fertility ebbs away — when embarrassing symptoms of thl« nature may betray your aget If this functional period make* you suffer from hot flushes or makes you feel ao weak, nervous. restless, hard to live and work with — try Lydla E.

That's how much he would have made if he had inverted $6,000 in the Ford Motor Company in 1903, as Henry Ford wanted him to do. But young Billy Hughaon had other ideas. With his $5,000 borrowed capital he purchased the first carload of ford automobiles to roll from the old Mack Avenue plant in Detroit. With them he launched a business and a life that no millions could make richer in happiness and satisfaction. Although Billy Hughson is the oldest Ford Dealer, there are many other old-time Ford dealers who also cherish the memory of the elder Henry Ford's personal friendship. Today there are 46 deafen who started with a Ford franchise before 1910, and are still actively in business as Ford dealers. Most of these men, attracted by Henry Ford's individuality and genius, went to Detroit to see just what he was doing. At one* they caught his spirit and shared hit vision of putting America on wheels. ' To distribute his cars, Hen* Ford picked his men shrewdly and ted them courageously. Good citizenship like Hughson's was. ami is, the keynote. It -effects the good industrial citizenship the Fold Motor Company constantly strives for.
