(By GEORGE TUCKER) NEW YORK—It is distressing to see an actress of Madame Nazimova's talents squandered on mediocre material, ajnd for this reason the opening of "The Mother" was an unfortunate event. The people carne to see Nazimova in a play and they saw an over-straining actress trying to cope with a situation' that had proved too much" for the authors even before the producers got hold of it. "The Mother" is an anti-war plea with a (patriotic twist at the end written under stress of conditions abroad. But, as one critic pointed out, "it proves once again that until our playwrights are able to gain the perspective of years they will not be able to write a play that will be as compelling as the simplest news story out of Europe." That about sums it up. * * * The hat people say an acceptable color now is dusty grey and specially recommended for summer. With a few more revolutionary changes like this my spotted grey, which also has plenty of dust, will be right in line. The Hawaiians, bein^ very emotional, get along fine in New York until they get on those two-way broadcasts, and then nostalgia takes them over On their celebration at the Hawaiian Room recently marking Ray Kinney's first complete year at the Lexington, things went swimmingly until they were actually on the air. Then their voices took on that "I wanna go back to Honolulu" tremor. For a moment it looked as if somebody was going to break down. Later listening to a recording of the broadcast, Ray leaped on a quiver in George Kainapau's voice with unconcealed satisfaction. "Gee," he yelled, "he's got it too." * * •* There is a milk and sandwich bar near Grand Central terminal which has a dual checking system, if you stand at the bar you are given a check and pay the cashier on the way out. But if you sit at a table you pay the waiter. How can you tell whether a man is on the level when he walks by the cage," I asked the c ? s l\i er - " He may have been at the bar and merely pretends that he has been at a table " "Oh," he replied, "people are fundamentally honest and only occasionally does a 'beat' come in here. You can tell the moment a man approaches this door whether he is a crook At least I can. it's something in their eyes and the way they walk. They aren't relaxed " There is another restaurateur who believes in the fundamental honesty of man, also near Grand Central. in this place no tickets are given whatever One simply has lunch and tells the cashier how much is due No questions asked. The food is marked and if you have a club sandwich and coffee you toss out a dollar bill and say 60 cents" to the cashier. She promptly returns your change. If you have the correct chanee vo .» P^ it down and walk out without saying anything. So dear reader, you see what a kindly, simple trusting" folk we are in New York. Nobody ever suspects anybody—much.

Florida's water hyacinth "destroyer" is going to Washington to pull "chestnuts" out of historic Potomac river. Army engineers in the nation's capital heard of the boat's success in combatting dense growths in the meandering St. Johns river, want to see what it will do with thick formations of water chestnuts. The hyacinth "destroyer" was developed in Florida by Frank B. Wright of Clermont with the help of Army engineers. Gin saws on the front of the shallow- draft boat cut through the closely matted plant masses. Col. Lewis H. Watkins, U. S. district engineer, described the Potomac River navigation menace as a kind of lily pad which produces hard, round nuts similar to chestnuts. The "destroyer" has only a five-foot cutting spread but Col. Watkins said that 10 new ones now being assembled will cut a path 12 feet wide.
