NBC (Time Is Eastern Standard) NEW YORK (#·)--A Sunday after- J noon series of farm programs, as, lun by Charlie Stookey, have their beginning on the CBS network this weekend. They'll be known as the! "Country Journal." | Generally, the half-hour broadcasts at 4 c'cloek are to consist o f ' interviews, farm conditions and oth-' er agricultural data. They will originate from various sections of the country, with Stookey providing also a survey of the particular territory from which the program comes. The opener is to be put on at Cleveland, where the World's Poultry Congress will be under way. Stookey, who has been handling a similar series of KMOX, St. Louis, is a farm broadcaster of ten years at the microphone. I Jessica Dragonette, long - timei singer of the kilocycles but whose I vocals for the last year or so have! been confined more to the concert stage, makes a radio return on August 18 as guest girl for Raymond Paige's 99 men and a girl on CBS. . . .

It was a fascinating pouibility and one which might, by not too great a stretch of the imagination, lead to peace and security for his declining years. And though his stay at Saltair Acres had been* both brief and fraught with tribulation, he had formed an attachment for the place. Therefore he decided to gamble splendidly. He got to his Feet and moved majestically to an obscure corner-of the room. He was just in time. A knock sounded on the door. "Dipsang!" cracked an imperious voice from without. "Are you here?" The next instant the door was flung open. The Chiseler, standing grave and silent in his out-of-the-way corner, perceived four individuals in backfield formation blocking the doorway. In the quarterback position stood a slight, testy-looking man whose lips were torturing an urilighted cigar. At left halfback was a tall, rangy young gentleman who seemed amused by something or other. The position of right half was filled by one of the prettiest girls that the Chiseler had ever seen. And in the fullback's place rested a bulbous individual. The quarterback spoke first, as is customary. "Dipsang," demanded the quarterback, chewing furiously on the eigai, "what has been going on here?" By now Mrs. Dipsang had hoist ed the Dipsang bulk to the Dipsang feet. "M-M-Mr. A d a m s ! " she exclaimed, unnerved. "I--I thought you were in Europe." Richard Craftonbury advanced into,the room. The rest of the backfield, getting the signal correctly, moved with him. "Europe be hanged!" said Richard Craftonbury. "I came home looking for peace and quiet. I walk into my house to find it all lit up like a gambling hall and some kind of infernal corroboree going on". And I haven't been home ten minutes -- not ten minutes, mark you--before some confounded blackguard sneaks up behind me. hits me over the head and ties me up in my own smokehouse. And what I want to know is who did it? WHO DID IT?" "I--I really couldn't say," said Mrs. Dipsang, in great distress. The Chiseler, in his corner, nodded. So this was what had happened. He wondered how on earth Coletti or Dorothy, or both, had come to get their signals crossed. "What's that?" exploded Richard Craftonbury. "You can't say? What in heaven's name is wrong with people around here tonight? Doesn't anybody know anything about anything? I'm going to . who in the dickens is that?" He had suddenly perceived the Chiseler, standing nobly aloof in his corner. He stared at him, eyes bulging, cigar bobbing up and down. Then he thrust out a terrible forefinger. "Who's that, I say?" It was then that the Chiseler comported himself in such manner as to indicate that when he turned crook the stage had lost a great Thespian. He strode forward with dignity, arms folded, head-bowed on his breast, mustachios flowing silkily in the breeze from the window. For a moment he confronted them. And even the red- and-white underpants failed signally to detract from the solemnity of his aspect Then the Chiseler spoke. "My name," he said, slowly and impressively, "is Dipsang. Austin Sebastian Dipsang, able-bodied seaman. I am at your service." Astounded, Mrs. Dipsang gasped and jumped, but no one noticed her. The Chiseler had commanded the undivided attention of everyone. A silence greeted his pronouncement Then Richard Craft- onbury, eyes bulging even more, cave tongue. "Huh?" he said. "Dipsang," repeated the Chiseler sonorously. "My name is Dip- sang." Sag* Of The Sea R ICHARD CRAFTONBURY regained his poise. "But I thought you were lost off--off..." "Hatteras," supplied Mrs. Dip- sang mechanically. The Chiseler turned to her. 1 see that your memory is as faulty as ever, my dear," he said easily. "I was not lost off Cape Hatteras. On the contrary, our ship foundered off the Florida keys. Never, if I live to be a thousand, ·hall I forget that bitter night The teas were mountainous, gentlemen, mountainous. The wind had teeth. We were, however, able to launch our boats. I and a few companions were alone on the--the waste of the ocean." He paused, to permit the minds of the audience to take in that graphic picture. "Well, «o on, go on," urged Richard Craftonbury, who liked tales of adventure. "What happened next?" "The storm," proceeded the Chiseler smoothly, "tossed pur little boat about as though it were an eggshell "To make a long story short, my companions and myself were washed ashore on a lonely island in the West Indian group. On this island were natives, practically barbarians, who informed us in the sign language that the place was out of the course of ships and seldom visited by them. This proved to be the case. When I tell you that we existed there for nearly nine years -- virtual Robinson Crusocs--without sighting a sin- 1 ft 00--Hor^c and Bijzgv 930-Idra Mart 10.00--Kay Kyser 13 00--New* Reiwr1r 11.15 -Lawrence Well: and Orrh. 1130--Richard Hjmber and OrdJ. gie vessel, you will have some k... of the isolation ot the spot to wliidi Providence -- ahem -- relegated us." "Doesn't sound reasonable In this day and age." objected Richard Craftonbury. "The sea," said the Chiseler, "is vast and mysterious. We were off the beaten track, stranded, without means of communication. To conclude, we were rescued three months ago by a fishing smack which had been blown off her course. This vessel brought us to Jacksonville. Florida. Eventually I made my way to New York where, through relatives who had believed me dead, 1 was able to trace my wife. And tonight'we are reunited, after these long ana--er --wasted years. Gentlemen, 1 am s man of sentiment. This--this occasion is too much for me." He produced an handkerchief and blew his nose violently. After which, ostentatiously, he wiped the corners of his eyes. Richard Craftonbury, having nothing better to do, lighted his cigar. "It's a saga." he said. "So it is," agreed the Chiseler, mastering his emotions. "Funny I didn't read about it in the papers," said Richard Crafton- bury. The Chiseler smiled tolerantly. "I presume that the press wa not interested," he said. "You musl remember that we were forgotten men from a forgotten ship." "Well, since you're here, man, put your pants on." "I had been on the point of retiring," said the Chiseler, with extreme delicacy. "Retiring? Ha! Anybody who thinks he can sleep in this house is crazy." And then, all at once, Richard Craftonbury paused, assailed by a terrible thought which drove all others out of his head. 'Coming Home' N 'OW that he considered Dip- sang's fantastic tale, he told himself that he didn't believe a word of it. It was far more likely that the fellow had merely deserted his wife for a few years. Mr. Adams knew his sailors. They had girls in every port. Doubtless Dip- sang had been amusing himself around the world and had only come back to his wife because he was down on his luck at present. But that didn't alter the fact thai he was back. And in all probability, he would waat to remove hii wife from Saltair Acres. And that, Richard Craftonbury vowed silently, must not be. He paled at the very thought of it. Mrs. Dipsang was the best housekeeper Mr. Adams had ever had. He must handle this matter with care, however. He must conciliate Dipsang, treat with him. "Well -- er -- Dipsang," he said, "now you're back in civilization, what are you going to do?" "My plans for the future," said the Chiseler, adhering rigidly tc the truth for the first time since entering the preserves of Saltair Acres, "are vague and indefinite." "You speak as if you'd had some education," said Richard Crafton- bury. "I assure-you," the Chiseler said, "that I had an excellent education. I was being groomed for the clergy. But, a headstrong boy, I went counter to the wishes of my parents and ran away to sea. I regret it now, of course. But too late. Still, I will pick up the broken threads. I will find work of some kind." "I'll tell you what you ought to do, Dipsang," said Richard Craf- tonbury enthusiastically. "You ought to ally yourself with some good, sound company. With a going concern." "Precisely," agreed the Chiseler. "I had something of the sort in mind." "I have it," said Richard Craf- tonbury. "I'll find you a berth on one of our tankers. Second mate or bo'sun's mate or something." Behind his magnificent mustachios, the Chiseler paled. He was distinctly not a lover of the sea, except in fancy. As a matter of fact he had once been violently ill on the Staten Island ferry. However. he declined the offer of the job on the oil tanker in nautical manner. "Avast there!" he said now to Rirhard Craftonbury. "I'm done witb. the sea. You will appreciate, I am sure, that after my harrowing experiences the sight and sound of the ocean sickens me" Richard Craftonbury snorted. He was not accustomed to having jobs he offered turned down. "Well," he said grudgingly, "what suggestions have you tc make? Some provision for youi future has to be made." The Chiseler smiled inwardly. It was extremely good of this irritated gentleman to be concerned for his future. Now, if the gentleman were prepared to lend a sympathetic ear to a little proposal that he would put forward presently all would be beer and skittles. It is strange," he said, "how. every so often, a place or a--«r-- location seems to twine itseli around one's heart Tonight as 1 approached your estate and gazed at your broad acres and stately trees, I experienced an unaccountable feeling of belonging to them. My limited vocabulary docs not permit an accurate description of the sensation. But I stood for a moment by those magnificent iron gates at ihe head of your driveway and I said to myself: 'Dipsang,' I said, "you're coming home.'" H« stopped, rememebring that he WM a seafaring man. "Douse my to'gal- iantc, if I didn't" 1200--Duke EJlinglon and Orch. 0--Larrv Clinton and Or:h. Off Mfssenrc-r UP-TO-DATE Dimmer Patterns, 35c.
