There is ho good "lesson for New Year that is not good for every-day. * Almost inevitably we make good resolutions at New Year. Too often 'we forget about them, or fail to keep them. But if they are really good, and U' they ought to be kept, we should make a far better job of keeping them if we could meet each dawning day with the same attitude and psychology with which we meet a new year, After all, it is not a New Yeai that is dawning, but a new day and the New Year comes to us 2 flay at a time. .The lesson of faithfulness ahc watchfulness is given here by the Great Teacher in the parable o the lord returning from the mar.- jriage feast, with his 'servants no knowing the lipur of his return Will he find them. wakeful, rea'd> to open the door straightway wh'er he knocks?

NBA Sen-ice Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD, Dec. 27.—Maybe 1940 was a Leap Year, as the calendar says; but romantically, most of the leaping was 'doh'e in the direction of the divorce 'courts.
