Despite the change In conditions since Mark Twain's heyday, these two fictional characters still exert a remarkable nflucncc on our youngsters— 1° their betterment! The great American who wrote of youngsters and olher ty|>- ,cal Americans spent his life analyzing Ihc whims and foibles of our pot-boiled citizenry. Horn Samuel C'lL'inens, he moved from farm (o rivcrboal; from gold nnd silver mines to the deep pile of royalty rugs, and from Icmiwrainentnl kHosyncracle.S'lo plain horse sense. In his raiiibliiigs and writings, he bared the souls of juveniles and adults alike. Yen can read "Mark Twain, Man and Legend," by IMlancey Ferguson mobbs-Merrill: $3), and get a lot of background on this sage of Americana.

Not a blograhy, but a firsthand, omey dissertation of the advant- ges of a rural life and Its attend- nt knowledge of gardening Is ertha Damon's "A Sense of Hu- nus" (Simon and Schuster: $2.50).

S. military air- raft in action today is Impressively presented In Reed Klnert's •America's Fighting Planes in Action" (Macmlllan: $2.50). Klnert :loes both the lext nnd the dra- nalic action sketches, many In full color. Here is a complete record of all American planes on the nation's [raining fields, patrolling the shorelines and oceans against enemy attack, and over the world's far-flung battlefronts. What they look like, how they perform, what they have already accomplished nnd arc expected lo, and how they compare with allied and enemy aircraft—all these things arc embodied in the brief but vivid accompanying text. Far from being a trite textbook on aircraft, Hits is the dramatic story of the mighty Grumman Avenger, which made il.s debut In the Battle of Midway with deadly, torpedo attacks on the Japs; of the Lockheed Lightning, whose speed and ability outcliinbs and outfights the jap zero; the Grumman Wildcat, the Browster Buccaneer and the many others wliich are playing such an part- in the global war. I ' ,! On June 22, 1910, the French republic bowed to the Nazi conquerors, but the hearts of Its people still cried,-"No surrender!" --.. Gen Charles de Gualle heard this cry. The story of "The Fi"i>|Ing French," by Rnoul Agllon (Holt:. $3), gives a complete hi-siory of his response. How dc Caullo' went to England and with the help of Winston Churchill, organized a volunteer, army; how he rallied France's colonial possessions lo the- banner of Free France; how his armed forces continued to wage Tar on land, sea and In the air, is interestingly recounted. Today, Fighting French lrnoi>s, numbering well over 100,000, fight with America and Great Britain against the Nazis. Their resistance . has Inspired the French )>cople with hope and the will to sabotage Ihe Invader al every opportunity..

Like all paints, Du Pont House Paint collects dirt on exposure to tho atmosphere. As time goes on, however, a fine white powder forms on the surface. This powder is washed away by heavy rains, carrying the dirt with it. The surface is left clean and •white. "Self-cleaning" starts after a few months' exposure under normal conditions. Unusual cli- maticordirt-collectingconditiona in extremely sooty industrial communities may delay it. "Self- cleaning" is so gradual that the wearing qualities of the paint film are not abnormally affected. Neat, clean, white houses are a symbol of America. So when you paint, why not make sure of the last i ng wh ilcne ss of your paint, as well as its protective value? The new Du Pont Tru-Tint ,THE SIGN OF A GOOD PAINT JOB -HERE'S WHY: Du Font House Paint is "self-clean! n g''—stays white • Gives protection that lasts and beauty that endures • Has exceptional hiding and fast, easy application • Available in light colors, too formula offers you attractive light tints which are also self-cleaning. Yetforall its"plus" values,Du Pont House Paint coata no more than other good paints. SAVE BY PAINTING NOW Since paint protects America's war equipment, it is a vital defense material. Don't waste paint. Consult a reliable painter before you paint. He knows how to do the job right—bow much or how little paint to use. His skill means savings for you, nnd paint conservation for America. Serial: "I'crils of Nyoka" No. 9 and Selected Short. •, Continuous Showing Sat. 1 to John Miles Miller Co. Distributor 123 W.
