Mucli of il lias been on a highly moral "tone, • intended v to appeal tq our better natures, '^It,' has failed, at least partially, liccause.' the reasoning has gone over U'e heads of a people tiained from infancy to assume . that what they want they -can buy! provided they have the moHey^and that it is nobody else's business , what •they choose to pay for it. ,''•'' Also, the term "black market" has' been used as an epithet without any generally understood limitations. Steal- ;thily slaughtered, uninspected, some. times tubercular beef is "black market." So is beef or any other commodity-, in excess of ration limitations. A retailer who sells an article half-a-cent .above the ceiling price, because he paid the full ret.ail ceiling in order to get his own supply, is a "black marketer." All of these things are illegal, ethically wrong, and dangerous to the nation's welfare. They result in unfair' distribution of inadequate supplies. They contribute to inflation. Now— that's off our chest. ^Yhy. else should we refuse to patronize the black market, aside from danger to our health ami thaj. of the community? ' Because in so doing 'we are sabotaging our sons, brothers, husbands, and friends in the armed forces — not in any • vague, general, theoretical way,: but directly and physically. '•• 'When meat is slaughtered' illegally for the Uack market there: are lost great quantities of strategic by-products which our men in the field' need badly. ;• •;'• ..• .• These •include the raw materials for sutures, used in drawing together the edges of a wound; adrenalin,- used to .check hemorrhage and as' a, hypoder- • mic injection to check pressure, and stimulate the heart; insulin; xieccssary to diabetics ; gelatin for military photograph ic film'; hides for leather; rendering fats, from which glycerine for, .explosives could have been. made;' and tankage, fertilizer and bone meal needed to produce food crops for' us, oiir allies and our fighting menl .'. , •..*'• - ,, Every person who, by purchasing illegally slaughtered meat, encourages this activity, contributes to sabotaging the war effort just as directly as though he helped to sink ships bringing industrial raw materials, drugs and foodstuff from foreign ports. Thoughtful Sam Speaker Sam Rayburn is quoted as saying that he "didn't give a damn" what might be said about his use of six Army draftsmen several days to inscribe names on 2000 imitation parch- ment scrolls, which the congressman is sending to high school graduates in his Texas district. Cnpt. William Cantrell of the Marine Corps, who arranged for the service, said liial Kaybiirn didn't know the soldiers were to do it. Then he said that Rayburn planned to pay. for* the work. The speaker thinks this Is a (food year to remind youngsters of "the benefits of the great democracy in which' they live," It docs have advantages. Hvory recipient of the Rayburn •scrolls has the right to aspire to be^ rome speaker himself, and have the Army letter scrolls, for him to send to his constituents.

By buying wnr bonds Die Innncr is creating a savings lund Irom which lie will be able lo nuance Ihe postwar soil building program, which will be necessary because of the exhausting demands of war- lime production. Another need will be the re- plftcempnt of form machinery- and equipment. Then there will be such things an painting, fencing, repairing buildings, or adding new structures— improvements which hove been postponed because of war conditions. Now Is the yme to put aside part of the higher Incomes that farm products are bringing In order to have the means for making n, better farm and homo, life when normal tlme.s return. If Incomes are cnlircly spent during wartime tlicTQ will be no funds left for the Insistent needs which will make themselves fell with the advent of pence. Investment in war bonds provides the answer. Then, there Is the angle of inflation, a subject in which the farmer Is vitally interested. A.s long us Income is increasing and the amount of goqils we can buy is decreasing, there Is always a threat of things getting out of hnuu. , Farmers 'ure In n relatively belter position thnn they have enjoyed for years. Under such clrcuinstances there, is often n tendency to make speculative Investments, such as the land speculation which occurred during the first' world wnr. Speculplkni helped send land prices fur above true values, and when the war ended many farmers were left with big mortgages oil land they had bought at highly inflated prices. Some.lopt; their .farms entirely., . . ' Buying bonds, ratlicr than land at Inflated values, is one way lo help avoid the recurrence of such a calamity. Alter reducing debts and taking care of, current expenses, every farmer should nmke a point of providing a savings fund for keeping the farm on a going basis when Ihe wnr Is over, us well us nuking sure of means for the education ot children and for the purchase of Ihosc conveniences ' that we can't get under war. conditions. U is Important that we shouU\ first do all in our power toward winning the wnr; then, do our part in. creating a satisfying peace. We can accomplish both objectives at one and Ihe same time by creating a peacetime savings fund through''Investment in war bonds. —Cotton Trade Journal. ....., u-., -. misunderstand: me>- -I'm 'hanging thisliammocbj I THIS CURIOUS WORLD SPINY FOUND AROUND GUINEA, AND AUSTRALIA TtVO £G6-/AY/Af& MAMMAiS STUDIOS,' HE SfAYS THERE/' J.

"It's this way," said the Epic Epidermis. "I'm sure movie audiences can't tell the difference be- twecn good and bad acting. They can't possibly after the fan letters I get praising MY acting. "So despite what some people say aobut my acting, and what I secretly think ot it myself, I'm going to keep my nose in Hollywood feedbag. DO yon konw how much I get for a picture?" she asked. Frankly, we didn't know. "Well,' she said, "I got, $7500 and 20 per cent.of Ihe profits:of my last; film, 'Sarong Girl'. They, made Ihe picture in seven days. .Thill's easy money, don't you Ihink?" We thought, il was very easy money, indeed. 'So who cares," continued the Epic Epidermis, "if I can't act. 1 make money, the producers make money, Ihe fans write letters praising my acting and everybody is happv."

"They were awful," she admits, but they innde money. I was awful, too. I didn't even know what a microphone was. But I'm learning." Ann Corio does no stripping in her pictures. There was just a suggestion of a tease in her first film. It was ,as Tondelcyo in an eastern revival of "While Cargo" that. the Epic Epidermis, attracted Hollywood's attention. For several years previously; movietown : u had heard of her baxoJfice api>eal as a strip teaser in burlesque but no one ever thought of putting her in front of n camera. "A gentleman named Henry Briggs, who said he was president of a movie oulfit called P. R. C., called me on the telephone, said he'd seen 'While Cargo' and wanted to put me in pictures. I thought it was a gag and told him to quit kidding. I'd never heard of Henry Briggs or P. R. C. Then one day lie popped inlo my dressing room, showed me a contract and, brother, I signed it quick."
