Potluck Supper The Altar so- (By PRESTON GROVER) WASHINGTON — Maybe our own observations are limited but it is dawning upon us that we are not often finding Gideon Bibles in hotel rooms any more. People who live about in hotels and chance to take a moment to look in the upper right hand bureau drawer will tell you that once xipon a time you could bank on finding a Bible there, printed in large type so it could be read by a light swaying to the blast of an electric fan. Out West we used to cruise about and scarcely ever did we fail to find a Bible. It became sort of a rite with us, first to turn on all the lights and then to hunt for it. Gideon people had limited, faith in politicians. In Washington they see all kinds and , likely enough are most impressed by the worst. But we missed the Bibles again in Cleveland at" the last f Republican national conven- j tion. We stayed that time at the , Cleveland hotel, a very topflight hostelry. To "be strictM non-partisan, we will add thatfj we did not find any Bibles-Ins. the Ritz-Carlton nor the Belle- »• vue-Stratford hotels in Philadelphia at the time of the Democratic convention. * * * Bad Press Relations It is possible the Bibles were whisked out in advance of the" conventions. After all, they were- designed to be saved for more or less constant travelers, like salesmen, and not for random politicians. Last year we found such Bi'-,' bles in one of two hotels in which we stayed in Boston, but We have found the Bible in I don't ask which. We can't re' member the name of either. New York has left us with .a, zero. Not a Gideon Bible have, we found. But one friend, who says that. once upon a time he did find fe,,' Gideon Bible on a dull evening:, convinced himself that even 36- • sus at times had troubles with : His press relations. 4 Jesus cured a dumb man at Sidon and urged that news of the miracle not toe published,, "but the more He urged, the wider published it was."

Raising of the funds, progressing slowly but surely, is a long, hard climb. It CAN be done ing anyone. Two things are unquestioned: First, the need for new hospital facilities; second, that the day will never come again in the future when so fine a hospital can be had for anywhere near the amount now sought. It is, however, a long, hard the Colonial hotel in Denver, the Bonneville hotel in Idaho Falls, and the Sir Francis Drake hotel in San Francisco. That sort of proved the geographic distribution so far as the West was concerned. * # # East in a Bad Way Our recent cruisings have ibeen mostly confined to the East. And our luck in finding Bibles has been increasingly poor. You must understand that we do not keep the Bibles when we find them. The Gideon society distributes them as a philanthropic enterprise to provide traveling salesmen and an occasional newspaper man with something elevating to do. There is a stern warning against taking the Bibles, a warning we have always felt obliged to heed. We have some special feeling that it is an extraordinarily evil thing to steal a Bible, even from a hotel room. O'ur first discovery of the ab! sence of Gideon Bibles was in Washington. At that time we lightly attributed it to the chance that hotels and the with assistance of each accord- climb needing the assistance of new county detention quar- |ing to his ability, without hurt- | all who are willing.

As for what Miss America of 1939 will look like if she strikes an average: She can be blonde or brunette (it's half and half so far); but she should weigh about 120 pounds, be about S-feet-SVfc inches tall, 17 V 2 years old, with high school in 1928. For the past four years she has been teaching in Saginaw. She made many friends by her pleasing ways who extend best wishes.

Ten hours after she had been crowned she disappeared, leaving promoters holding the sack. Perhaps Mrs. George Bruce, Wichita, Kan., who, as Norma Descygne Smallwood, of Tulsa, Okla., won the title in 1926, sums up the situation. She says her chief criticism of such contests is: "The letdown to the girls, both to those who win and those who don't, even though the title is mostly an empty one." Mrs. Bruce, by the way, is one of those who says without hesitation that she wouldn't be a contestant if she had it to do over again.
