Misery loves Company Before the middle west is restricted as to gasoline consumption beyond what is necessary to save tires, it should be established beyond reasonable doubt that this would help the afflicted cast. If the serious situation in the cast can be relieved by making other sections share the shortage this should be done even though it may be true that much of the trouble arises from bungling in Washington. But no .section should be penalized merely on the theory that misery loves company. If restrictions elsewhere will not make it possible to got more fuel to the east, there should be none invoked. Pickling I (ictory Who would think of a pickle factory as a war production plant? In 72 hours the K. & S. Pickle Works of Bostcn converted from cucumbers to incendiary bombs, which have to be packed in :i special preservative acid. Leant i,i to Travel "When I get my feel planted in the old home town, you won't see me doing any more traveling," say most of the Americans who liiive been sent all over the world to fight this global war. But an awful lot of them, having realized how much there is to the world, are going to want to see it again as civilians. The more adventurous, who will hit for 1 Africa n deserts or sub-Arctic snows, will do well to tuck awuy copies of the Army's two guidebooks, "Jungle and Desert Kmorgendcs" and "Arctic Emergencies." The latter, .second iii the sc- ries, is filled with such useful information as the fact that polar bears' livers are poisonous, a diet of rabbit will lead to death through "rabbit starvation," but sciil hearts and kidneys and broiled reindeer moss arc edible. f TliVypilngcr 'geii'cralioii of Myers cre- 4W''by"thrs"\var contains many who are as enthiifjiastic as Igor Sikorsky ^bout the posl-waf' possibilities of tlic helicopter as a family car of the air, which could do much to stop the concentration ;_of living in overcrowded oitics. | The b'6;juty of the helicopter for local commuting, shorl-distance vacation-, hig and similar purposes is lhat it *;ould .not require a complete rcbuild- ijig.of>existing communities lo provide scores.or hundreds of big airport:;.

The inhalation of oils, especially animal and mineral, iiut also some vegetable oils, is irritating to the lungs and capable of producing a particular type of pneumonia known as fat or lipid pneumonia Hi? oil. The irriliilint! effect of Ihc oils varies with the kind.

Hack in Hollywood after another swing around tlic country tor the Victory Committee, Jinx is finding a hard day's work at Hie studio In "Cover Girls" relaxing indeed, compared to a camp junket. At Fort Sill. Oklahoma, her tennis playing ability preceded her. She played four sets of doubles with 15 of tiic camp's best players. In Frederick. Oklahoma, 500 school kids stormed the lobby of her hotel at 8:30 in the mom- ing and refused to go lo school until she got out of bed and made an appearance. At. I'ucblo.

The overanxious mother urging cod-liver oil or castor-oil onto a crying child may succeed in getting as much oil into the ehild"s lungs as into his stomach. The useless habit of pcrmitliUK medicated salves or vaseline lo trickle down the throat is another nisthod of Instilling oil inlo the lungs. A few drops a day or llicir intake, from a spray for the duration of tlic average "cold" or siege of hay fever may be the means of injecting a considerable amount of oil into Ihc lungs. MINERAL Oil.

She was walking the floor. "I jest can't sleep, Miss Marine," she mumbled apologetically. "Well, we'll fix thai," T said, with forced cheerfulness. I went inlo Ihe bathroom and returned will) a half glass of water. "What's that?" she asked suspiciously ns I readied for Ihc envelope on the bedside table. "Somelhing the doctor left to make you sleep," I said, taking out two of the tablets. Margaret shrank back. "I can't lake them. I can't swallow them. They won't go down." "All right, then," 1 said, soothingly and dropped Ihc two pills inlo Ihc half-filled glass of wnlcr. I shook tlie glass and tiny bubbles rose to the top of (ho water. It looked as if it was going to take Ihc medicine a long lime lo dissolve. A chill rlawn wind began to blow the curtains at Ihc open windows. Margaret saw me shiver. "Miss Marine, you'll catch your death of cold," s !,o said worriedly wilh a flash of her old self. "Go on back lo bed. I'll be all vight. ! "Not unless you get into bed first and promise lo lake this medicine as soon as the tablels dissolve," 1 said. She obeyed. I tucked the quill around her, told her lo call me if she didn't go to sleep soon mid went out, Kalliy's door opened as I closed Margaret's and she stuck her heftd out. "What's tlie matter, Gram? heard you talking." ; "Margaret's awake," I cx- ;plained. "I just':'.fixed her some ,of that sleeping medicine Ihe doctor left." ' There- was the click of an clcc- ' ilric switch and a slrcak of light | showed beneath the door of Connie and Walter's room. H looked as i{ I'd nwakonod everybody in intending lo get up in a few minutes to go and sec if Margaret had "ollowcd my orders about taking ho sedative, but the bed was warm and comforting and 1 slipped lo sleep before I knew it. * * * TTATHY was eating iier break- feat when I got down the next morning. She had on an oulrage- ous pair of blue denim overalls and a red plaid lumberman's blouse. When she got up and crossed to Ihc bulTct for more loasl the big wide legs of the panls napped mound her slender ankles. She had on high-hcclcd pumps. I gasped and asked her if she was going fishing in those silly shoes, and she said, no, that Clinl Mattison was bringing her a pair ot hip boots lo wear. She said they were going to take our boat and go up to the end of the lake and cast for Irout in the creek that comes down from the hills. She looked very alive and almost excited and there was a lid lo her voice ns she dialtcrcd. I had a bad moment wondering whether or not lo warn her againsl Mallison. i was sure my change of mind about invcslignlimj Derek Grady's inuvdcr had whetted his curiosity. He iniglit try to find out things from Kalhy. But before I could make up my mind Ibcre came a whistle from outside and Kathy hopped up to open the door. From my place a the lable I saw Mallison^ his goot arm loaded with fly rods, an extra pair of boots, and a kit bag, come inlo the hall. He piled his gear or a rJiair, and Kathy smiled at him and herded him inlo the breakfast room for a cup of coffee. He apologized for his appearance as he sal down opposite me He had on a faded shirt and Ol< trousers tucked into hip hoots and lie smelled like—a fisherman His broken ami was slill in its cast and the empty shirt sleeve was pinned lo his shoulder, I poured him some eoflec anc he and Kalhy began to talk abou ^hc_ house, I went back to bed the ppssjbjlity. Pj_«_8opdj:|lch, ta rather, Kathy did. I glanced up unexpectedly and caught Mattion studying me from under his owcrcd brows. There/was grim concentration in his gray eyes. Vly hunch had been right I kne'V t then.' Maltison wasn't present ust for the pleasure of Kathys company. • : • • « A SUDDEN commotion in the hall ended what might riavo become an awkward situation, down stairs lor breakfast and Jack spied Mattison's fishing traps. Miss Lake was bringing the twins Jack's been crazy about fishing ever since Walter took him.'out on lake once and let him pretend nc was fishing with a real rod. He made an excited dive for Mattison's Ihings. "'Ook, I'm goin' flshin'. I'm goin* fishin'." he chanted with shrill delight. Miss Lake screamed. Her cry brought us to our feet and into Uie hall. .Tack was swinging one of the rods around in the air and the line had come unreeled. We saw the dangling hook flash past Judy's dimpled baby face and bury itself in one of the window drapes. Kathy separated Jack from the fishing stick and Mattison helped the trembling governess free the hook. Kalhy sat down on the bottom stair step wijh Jack. "Those are Mr. Mattison'i fishing rods," she told him firmly. "You shouldn't have touched them." That meant nothing to Jack. "Can't I go wit 'im?" he begged "Me want to catch fish." Kathy laughed in spite of herself. "Maybe, the next time," she promised. "Sure," Mallison joined in. "Next time I'll bring a Bshing pole for you, too." Clara appeared on the landing above. In her hands she carried Margaret's breakfast tray and the dishes on it rattled. The girl wts shaking with terror. "I can't wake Margaret up," she gasped. "I think she's dead."
