WIFE OFFERED LOVE BY PROXY, MATE CHARGES Millionaire Tell Court Spouse Proposed to Take a Mistress. Hackeusaek. N. J. (UP) Hernard R. Armour, millionaire chemist, was in court again Thursday to rid himself of the woman lie loved because she sought to return his love by proxy. Armour, 53, head of the Hoyden Chemical corporation, complained that pretty, vivacious. 31 -year-old Martha S. Armour offered to find him n mistress to take his mind off his work and her extra-marital activities. She proposed, he said, to weave a wonderful matrimonial tent "in the fashion Of the French" that would house a mistress for It Ii ii and a lover for her, where everyone would be friendly, and broadminded ami homc-loving. Armour was to resume his tes-tirony Thursday after telling Chancery court in the first session of his divorce hearing that he was a long-suffering man. It was In 1937, he said, that his wife told him w hat their Englewood, N. J., mansion needed was a touch of Parisian culture. That, she explained, could be acquired If each of them found a new object for their affection in the manner of the wealthy French she had read about. When he protested, she called him "Mid-Victorian," so Armour decided, he said, not to complain any more about lipstick and tobacco and her reading material. When his wife pressed the subject, he told her that he was too engrossed in his work to seek a new flame, so, In order to keep the home-fires burning, she offered to find one for him, he said. Armour said his wife's suggestions made him suspicious, and he set private detectives to watching her. For months, he said, he took the reports of the detectives to his attorney, who said they were no ground for divorce. Then the detectives brought In new reixirts. The lawyers promised the court they would show why Armour should be given his freedom and named three men in their petition.

' i ' i Christmas Toys Are Going To Be Somewhat Better This Year as Santa Got Priority W-uhington. (AP) Toys will be somewhat better this Christmas, for Santa got a priority. Playthings won't be of pre-war quality but on the whole they'll last "much longer" than the gadgets of a year ago. The commerce department said so Thursday. Toys may be more numerous, too, especially in some categories like dolls and wooden toys. Toy sales are expected to be nearly $250,0011.000 av retail. Last season they were believed to be slightly less than that. Exact estimates are difficult. Here's some of the toys news In detail, as reported to mommy and daddy by the commerce department: There will be "perhaps enough dolls to satisfy everybody." Ten or 13 per cent of the doll carriages and toy wagons w ill have steel wheels and undercarriages. Steel was also allocated for a small number of construction sets. Wooden toys will be about 25 per cent more numerous than last year. They will be superior in designs, finish, and workmanship. About 25 new manufacturers of wooden trains hac entered the toy field within the last several months. Mode! planes are mushrooming. Some will be built of balsa wood, which is being allocated in increasing quantities for the purpose. Some aluminum planes will be on sale. Superfortresses have already gone into production. Toy jeeps will be in the stores, FINDS WEDDING RING IN CALIFORNIA PEACH Moorhead, Minn. (UP) Mrs. J. D.

Washington. (AP) You're beginning to think now. aren't you, of whipping up that Thanksgiving dinner? Here are your prospects, outlined by the boss of the nation's pantry, the War Food Administration: Turkey There won't be any over-supply in spite of an expected record production. The military services want a lot more turkey than last year. Near the turkey-raising areas there'll probably be enough to meet demand. Elsewhere, there may not be enough. Onions, beets, rutabagas, carrots Don't expect trouble here. There's a Rood supply. Beans You'd better look for the canned kind. The supply is pretty good. There'll be few fresh beans. Cranberries The crop, short, is only about half of last year's. Mostly you'll have to use fresh cranberries. The canned berries have gone largely into the war services. Potatoes A little short for November. Sweet Potatoes These are short in the middle states, worse in the west, better in the east. Peas You'll be able to get practically no fresh peas. Cabbages Not so good. They won't be plentiful. Turkeys again Last year we produced 466 million pounds of turkey, dressed weight. This year the production will be about 500 million pounds. 3 Lj"a-J Bags at Your Grocei's imm ST 2-3134 (No Toints) . lb. 2OV2C . lb. 2IV2C .

This y ear, being larger than last year, they're taking 60 million pounds. So that servicemen and women can have turkey for Thanksgiving and Christmas, the War Food Administration well in advance of those dates lays down this kind of rule: Until military demand is met, the big producers must sell their turkeys to the military services s:nce they have to ship them ahead i f the holidays to the world's distant "points. But whereas last year the military demands were filled by Oct. ?5, this year the military is still taking turkeys and there is no sign of when they will have had enough. And this means something to civilians: The processing of turkeys, moving from the farms to the SAVE YOUR GAS AND TIRES SHOP AT YOUR NEAREST n HOME-OWNED STORE CONDUCTED BY YOUR FRIENDLY NEIGHBOR (ltlltHHItllllllMMitUIIIIIIIMHHIIIIIIIIIItl(llIMiMllllllll r.lILK ZllZV KELLOGG'S PEP 1Qe SPRY 1 10c and Kitchen Klcnzcr for ? a 1 ; n mm (AntifeptU Action) feS.

That means fewer turkeys reach your neighborhood store. The processing is also being slowed up by labor shortages. The War Food Administration hopes the turkey supply will be better at Christmas time. These are the big turkey producing states: Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas.
