TALK TO GOD isenxble overt "And Cinderella, came out of the kitchen and married the Prince, and they lived happily ever after, «o the old fairy story goes, and tho child that is In the heart of eve»y one of us, In spite of calendars and mirrors, loves the tale, which against one setting or an- others, has ever been a favorite plot for fiction writers. 3 It-re, in recent publication, Is the theme again, "The Bachelor" by Stella Gibbons, a charming, readable, novel set in the lovely county of Hertfordshire shortly after the first great Blitz struck I»ndnn. Hertfordshire is still undisturbed; her fields lie qu}ct under tho autumn sun, her fruit trees hang heavy with their ripening treasure, and Miss Con- stiuice Fielding, middle-aged worker for international brotherhood, IK determined to ignore tho war and keep il away from her door. Miss Fielding has no doubt of her success, (for hasn't she always had her own way?) ruling her household with a rod of iron, brotfking no interference with her plans, and domineering over her brother, Kenneth, since his babyhood, so that In middle life he ie still under her thumb, a bachelor, and a boyish, bumbling fellow, in spite of his years, in spite of his record for bravery In the last war, feeling that something is wrong with his well-ordered life but not knowing exactly what, Hierarchy of Domination Miss Fielding, in turn, is ruled by the spectral hand of Our >1 other, who in life had shaped the two Fielding sisters in her dominant image. Kenneth she bad not shaped. He, also, was hardly worth the trouble, so mild, PO kind, so unassertive, weak like bis father, that charming wordly roue, who one day walked out of his household, becoming to his daughters a. legend of wickedness. Constance Fielding is the wicked sis- tor of the story. Yet she is not wieked, but just a woman with blinders on, with no sense of reality. She is the prototype of all those people who love mankind, but can't get along with their neighbors. She loves the world but cannot endure the refugees whom she has, perforce, to shelter during the Blitz. She ignores the war in all its devastation, but frets that the milk is not delivered —and is scarce at that. She is fond of her brother, but deter mined that no woman shall ensnare him—not from jealous devotion, but that the even tenor cf her 1 own life shall remain unchanged. She likes the pattern as it is, and woe to friend or enemy who shall attempt to destroy the design. Everything must go on as !t is, and ever has been.

Army Medical Department urgently needs you now" MAJOR GENERAL NORMAN T. KIRK, Surgeon General U. £ Army. there burns within you a sincere desire to do something active and important to help win the war, here is your opportunity. Join the WAC—serve in the Army Medical Department, where women are vitally needed now. You can help bring the war to a quick, successful end. You can help bring our loved ones—your loved ones, perhaps—home sooner. And you can learn a valuable technical skill that may be the foundation of a career after the war. With the biggest battles of the Pacific ahead, the West must take a still more active part in the war. You are needed here, in Australia perhaps, or elsewhere behind the battlefronts, to give our men the attention they require. L The care and rehabilitation of the sick and wounded is a woman's noblest work. Get into it if you can. If you are between the ages of 20 and 50 and have no children under 14, or other dependents, call at the nearest U. S. Army recruiting station to volunteer for this vital service. » GREYHOUND SERVES, TOO Greyhound is happy to publish this message throughout the West for the WAC. We are in war work, too—providing transportation for the WAC and other branches of the Armed Forces... aiding in troop movements... transporting wounded... at the same time carrying on an essential service for the traveling public.

Delicacy and Restraint The author has told her story with delicacy and humor and restraint. No one Is changed very much by all that happens. Though there is a good deal of marrying at the end, one feels that all these people will remain much as they were, only a little happier,—as they have approached nearer to reality. Even for Miss Fielding- reality has come a little closer, since she recognizes her feeling for Doctor Stock as love and henceforth will be dominated instead of ruling. That, hints Miss Gibbons, is the need in every woman's heart, to relinquish the reins of power to the beloved. Bur Vartouchl was always a realist in a house of dreams. She had no ideals, hut she had the strict code of puucrutirms of .Kaira- ni inn H to whom the keystone of life was the family ami its solidarity. So she and Miss Fielding, though enemies, were not so far apart alter all. If you wish to turn from factual reading and have a good time, a few hours of pure dlverUsement, you will be grateful for "The Bachelor." And it's not just light reading. There is much of wisdom here lightly overlaid. Stella Gibbons has a deep knowledge of human nature and a spiritual insight into the elements of English greatness. She points no moral, draws no conclusion, but her characters prove in their lives that the "greatest of these is charity," and that kindness is the enduring reality.

"According to Alfred E. Lentz, legal adviser for the state department of education, in computing the age of children for admission to kindergarten or first grade, the birthday anniversary iteelf is not to be counted/ 1 the director said. A child actually attains the next age tho day before his birthday. This is a recognized fact in establishing a legal age. "Therefore, a child whose birthday is on March 2, will be legally 4Vfc years of age on September 1 and must be admitted to the kindergarten. Likewise a child whose birthday is on March 2 will be 6% years of age by September 1 and must be admitted to the first grade."
