By TOM WOLF NEA Service "Staff Correspondent '1JJEW J YORK - !„ grandma's day it* was sound advice 'to tell a girl, she'd go far if she kept her feet on the ground. But comely Margaret Siefried has gone farther, faster than grandma would ever have thought, possible, just by keeping her head in the clouds. Margaret is one of a select handful of stewardesses whose regular beat is the trans-Atlantic run between New York and the British Isles aboard the American Export ( Airline's giant flying boats. Afraid? She's more scared of the dentist. Looking like the Hollywood conception of her role, dressed in the chic taupe gabardine suit and overseas cap that make up her uniform, Margaret discussed her. job as nursemaid to trans-oceanic commuters. "You're'too busy and too keyed up to }iave much time to think about the trip while you're in the air," she said. "It just seems like the first meal is just started when it's already time to begin the next one." Most of her passengers on the four trips she's made to date have been the model of the well-behaved air-traveler — "pretty nice Joes" as she put it. The majority of them, naturally, are pretty important Joes, too, these days, and most of them have, done sufficient flying before to take the trip in stride. The trips are much smoother on the average than flights over land. Of course, there are a few "nervous Nellies" — passengers who lean heavily on John Barleycorn to see them safely through the trip, but these, says Margaret, are the exception. In general, the passengers are more congenial than those on domestic airlines, where Margaret Films, of London •-.-• «. <>•» Under" Attack- to^CS Be Shown in City, J Moving pictures of ^ar-timo ;f conditions in London are to,'W; '' shown at the American Legion hall beginning at 8 o'clock Thure- ,, day night. v , Two films — "The Warning" and "Defending the City's Health" — are scheduled'' on the program, ' which has been arranged by the Ottawa County Health and Hous- ' ing committee and the State Health department.

All civilian defense workers are being requested to attend the showing of the pictures, which were taken in London during the present war. The public is invited.

Former Oil Firm President Is Fined CORPUS CHRISTI, Tex., Aug. 26 -OP)- William A. Richardson, former president of the Richardson Petroleum company, was fined $10,000 and given a one-year suspended sentence when he pleaded guilty in federal court here today to 23 counts in an indictment alleging production of "hot oil" in violation of the Connally act of 1935.

Erwin, secretary- treasurer of the corporation, was fined $1,000 on the same plea, and W.- Greenfield Richardson, former production manager, was fined $2,000 and sentenced to one year, suspended. At the recommendation of U. S. District Attorney Douglas W. McGregor, another count alleging conspiracy to violate the Connally act was dismissed against the three. Army Veteran, 17, Enlists in Marines OKMULGEE, Okla., Aug. 26.— MP>—An army veteran at 17, Joseph C. Warmbrodt now has enlisted in the marines. He enlisted in the national guard Sept. iaito federal later, was discharged only Aug. 11 when army authorities found he had stretched the truth a mite about his age.' The army doesn't take men until they are 18. worked lor nearly tnree years oe- 'o're going to American Export. That's because they get acquainted going through customs and the ike before the trips begin at all. lumber one trans-Atlantic pas- ;ime seems to be poker, with talk ranking a close second. Margaret, who was born in Franklyn, Ohio, went" into the stewardess business from nursing, ^ext to youngest of'eight children, she didn't tell her parents or >rothers and sisters about her trans-Atlantic plans until after sne Had taken the job. Then it was too late for parental fussing and she says her family approves the work now. She hasn't had a lot of time to see the other side yet, because you're pretty sleepy after the trip and the turn around is pretty quick. She got her biggest kick out of the difference in the countryside abroad, the stone, fences, whitewashed, thatched houses, lack of paved roads, donkey carts. Beinjr tall and sli.m, with blue eyes, brown curly hair and a quick, pleasant smile, Margaret is deluged with date offers from hei flying charges, but she has turned them all down. • Her boy friend who works in New York, has ^nothing to do -with planes or flying. What is the ambition of a gir to whom flying the Atlantic already become routine? "I certainly don't intend to be a career woman," Margaret says. Housewife, perhaps? She smiles hei prettiest when she says, "Time will tell." Oil Stocks Show Sharp Decline in.
