Thanks to Urn devotion of a New York scientist whose name escaije.s us, Milady - now can have a paint .job, renewed eco- nomicaljy at home bij short-notice, {hut .will fool all but experts and .other women.' , , ' Word of this, startling development has been obtained, from a reluctant public relations representative, who in- lersuerjjes his scientific Description • with such boil mots as "The most Attractive part of a woman are her. legs, as 1 they, arc the first thing noticed by everyone." ; - ' * * , * '• Winii war cut us off from new. .supplies of silk and diverted iiylon to military uses, American women fo.inul themselves up against it. Beauticians promptly suggested that legs be painted to resemble silk stockings. There was one niajor difficulty. The better hosiery , has a seam down the back. Theoretically, it is possible to paint such a seam directly onto the leg. But unless a woman is'a .contortionist—and how many American women are contortionists?—it is bard to bring the calf of the leg,' the hand and the eyes into such position that a seam can be painted' that'does not wander or waver or vary in thickness here and there. An alternative ( was to press Hubby into service as an artist. But too of. ten Hubby was having his own troubles with a bow tie, or searching: frantically i'or studs and links, and -was in no mood to do justice to inscribing seams on his wife's painted legs. Moreover, bachelor girls are just as anxious to have their painted stockings on straight as wives are. * •* *•••• The device now available enibles .any woman to.paint her o^yn stocking seam onto her leg without tying herself into a knot' or acquiring an .artistic husband. It is so simple, that any dub could do it. We hope that yon will ,r(ot dismiss this information too lightly merely because it is Spring. If you have .ever noticed how much .a straight stocking seam adds to the attractiveness of any woman, you>jll not belittle the matter. Perhaps the OWI should broadcast word of the invention to Berlin, Rome and Tokyo. It .would provide clinching proof of American confidence that \vp can lick the Axis with one hand tied behind pur back .and the other wielding n paint brush. Farm Manpower .

Mr. Cplburn said: "The Dow of food to Europe undoubtedly will mean U^hlcr tood rationing in Ihe United Slate und Great Drltnin, ami available supplies will have lo Ijn .spread thin around Ihe world." Thcro me iminy reasons for expecting Continuance of rationing In that period. Por one thing, we will hnvc .large force.'; of men abroad, and their food needs will continue on a big scale unlit they can bo drmohlllml. On (op of these requirements will be Ihe Job of gelling food supplies into Europe us rapidly ar, possible. Apart from the liumanitnrian uspccl of saving the lives of mc-n, women and children now condemned to stow .starvation in Axis fiuropc, there is the important role of loud in bringing pence .and .achieving iccon.sliuctiOJ). No hellor token of' the Allies' «nod will can UB conveyed to troubled Eurouc, no yrcater contrast with littler misrule, llian fond for Us peoples as .soon ns il can be delivered, And there cnn be no surer means of insuring Ijlllcr'Internal strife In Europe after the war than letting Us people go hungry. Until the slarvins; lire fed, it will he futile to attempt beginning creation of a structure for permanent pence. Mr. Colburn estimates Unit more than 250 million persons.will b« in need of this relief. This will menu n furllunf; organisation, now being by Herbert H. l.ehuiiin. and it will require enormous slocks of fooclsuilfs nnd other supplies. Until new crops can be hat vested without danger of conlisciUion. until the livestock carried oil by Hitler can be replenished to some degree, the liberated peoples will depend on the outside world for aid. In his new book, "The Peace We Fight For," Ilirnm MolherwcH innkos the same point about postwar rationing in this country, lie sees this as nn inevitable pnrt of Ihfi postwar incnts, and reaches this conclusion: T believe the American people will ncccpt Ihe rationing nnd Ihe controls which may be necessary to permit the emergency feeding of postwar Europe.

AIONTADOKCS CHAPTER XVI TJTIS fever had once more rni- ractiloiisly disappeared during the night. Barry woke (o Ihe golden fragrance of a tropic morning feeling weak hut clearheaded. He lay listening lo the loud ehalter of macaws, parrots and the thousand and one varieties of birds that flashed their bright hues about the eslaneia. "Good morning, lazy bones!" Allison was in his doorway. There was a bright light of sagerriess in her 'as she carried in Ills tray, laughter in her voice. She spread his napkin for' him and touched her small hand lightly to Ills forehead. '• • "You're fine," she said wilh malicious joy. "No excuse for not coming out aiid helping initiate my zool caps." . "What ore you talking about?" Barry frowned as he drank' his pineapple juice. She flood Jje- s\d» tyrn laughing, her xo.'den hair H ragged auriole abo'.it'httr h'.'ort- sliaped /«c« whose wliilenets Jsajt now disappeared' under a honey tari. -,..,,. "Meet me out in Ihe .clearing and you'll see," she taunted. Barry drank his coffee and sfe the two eggs with relish this morning. He felt stronger than he had for a long time-aiia'a surge of fresh hope went through hirn. Maybe he had thrown tlie fever for a rear loss this time. He got up and put an (lie clothes Jaid but for him and went out of the estancia. It was a large thatched house on stills with a broad veranda, from which could be seen the half dozen smaller shucks o£ the chi- cleros and the wide clearing that surrounded tlie massed cslancias. On every side crouched the vi- brnnl green lush jungle waiting to devour the puny resistance of man's elloris against it. Barry made his way unsteadily down the broad slcps of (he cs- tiincia and crossed the sun- washed, muddy clearing toward Ihe boiling kettles. Allison sauntered to meet him. "The monladores came in this morning," she reported breathlessly. "Montadores?" Barry puzzled. * * * TJE.R eyes twinkled with mischief, "ivlonladores are our chide scouts, tenderfoot." "Yes, my calloused chiclero," Dairy retorted meekly. "You see," she exnlainnc'- " T I'S very naughty of llioni, but zapole trees don't grow all in one place. Tiicy go jusl where they please to live their lives," "Like you," jeered Barry. * "Like me," she laughed. "So we have to send out montadore.s to cut trails to the new grove. Hough boys, aren't 'they?" She and Barry joined the two inonladores wiio stood in the sun near the boiling kettles giving their report lo Hcnaldo. They were powerful, ugly-looking natives, looking more like exhausted! filljiy animals llian men after tlfeir long, grueling tussle with the jungle. Renaldo turned to greet Barry 'with u smile. "Sounds like we've got a fair-sized grove from what they say," he said, his voice ringing with satis/action. "Isn't it thrilling?" Allison cried. "To just go out and discover your orchard?" "Thrilling maybe, but lough," mused Carry as Ihe two monta- dores, now dismissed, moved heavily nil toward, their eslanciiis. garo rolv.rn(d to Ihe beside "him. Her violet eyes were wioe and ir.!r\:ng. "Thsrs il," rtie was whispering, "'fhst's. the jungle. Thrilling— sod toujji. You can scream your betid off, but you'can't faze it. You h»y« to light every minute for yojir IHe." Bsn-y'* mouth dropped .open in 'am»«tne&.l. "Why, you scrappy liltie varmint," lie said. 'Rciuldo laughed, but the-look lie turned on Allison was purede- volion. "She understands the jungle," he said. Allison caught Barry's arm with sudden change of mood. "Come on," she cried jubilantly. "You're going lo sec my Mot caps." She walked quickly clown the" wide trail striped with yellow sunlight and deep shadow that led lo the closest group of zapote trees. But, though she chattered gaily, Barry noted her hand rested lightly on the small gun in the holster slung about her slender hips, and her eyes kept alertly, on the path ahead. * * * , J CHE broke off to answer his unspoken question. "Bushmasters," she said shortly. "Renaldp says they're the meanest snakes in the jungle. They'll find s path that's used often and lie in wait all day for a victim." "I know," Barry'agreed. "But you mean you've learned to shoot that gun already?" "You can learn fast have to," she laughed. . They had come to the Croup of zapote trees and slopped to watch < Ihe native chiclero sloshing a ug- ' •ing gash down the lengih O f Ihe zapolc trunk. Harry found he was seething with sudden anger over tlie girl's .statements, "Look here," he protested, us she waited for the chiclero to descend, "you don't have to slay oul here in the jungle." She didn't answer, and lie prodded, ."Do you 1 ;" She shrugged-then and looked up al him, confusion and laughter both in her eyes. "You don't have to do anything," she murmured, "including live. Hut you Und yourself in the midst of something you want to go on wilh for a while. I never knowovhy. But it doesn't mailer, does ii? It keeps- it all pretly fascinating." She- broke off (o point with excitement. "Now you can see the '/cot Tlie chick-ro was n!most at Ihe foot of the tree. lie wore sharp let' irons lo dig in and hold himself upright against a rope looped around himself and tlie tree, lie was naked except for loin clotii and a white hood wilh visor which lied under his chin. Barry suppressed a laugh at the startling combination. "Is that bonnet supposed lo bo a thing of beauty?" he asked. "Certainly not," .snapped Alii- ' son. She called the native lo lower his head, and pointed triumphantly at stains on the visor. "Poison drippings from the com- padre tree," she said. "Some of: those drops might have gone in his eyes. Later on, I'm going to see it I can send for some goggles. Meanwhile," she added proudly, ' "Ihe sides of the cap protect his ears-from that nasty insect that lives in the top ot the zapole (roe." Tlie chiclero had reached (lie ground. Another Indian was hanging a canvas bag lo a peg driven at the bottom of tlie zigzag gash', and (he chicle was already (lowing along tlie jagged cuts. "Lady," said Barry, "you come right after Ihe grand canyon. Now if you'd use a little of your'in- genuity to make a litllc sense out of your own plans." She brushed a bright tumble of hair back wilh tlie back of iier hand and gave him an impish smile. "Don't worry about my plans, my fine-feathered friend," she murmured. "Juit be on your guard." She tenri ;ii&rply at:cl started back through iht mwrlily path toward the eslaneia, leaving Barry grinning helplessly after her.
