SCHOOL MILK PROJECT There is no lack of worthy causes these days, but one of those in Ludington that should not be forgotten is the milk fund of Ludington PT-A council; On a modest budget, it-supplies the needed nourishment of milk to school children in beginning grades. Ludington Rotary club contributes annually to the project, as do other oi-ganizations. More aid is needed and always at this season the PT-A council asks the assistance of any other groups or individuals who may be interested. The treasurer is Mrs. Charles Allen, 310 North Rowe street. This year available funds will be allotted each school, being used to furnish milk on a regular daily basis to the pupils in need of this nourishment who otherwise would not obtain it. Started five years ago, the worthiness of the project is unquestioned. •ear her property •later, Miss Ivy Newcbmb. Previous" to the murder the guests had been concerned about the poisoning of one of their number, Mrs. Rutherford, who recovers; strange sounds of a prowler oil the property, and the ransacking of one of the rooms. Those at Hill House besides Dr. Neal and Josie Peake. Children of the dead woman, are Sally Gordon, spending her first vacation there; her close friends, Rhoda •nd her f&nce Duncan; Dr. Paul and Pauline Rutherford, children of Mrs. "Rutherford, Coral Easton, Bruce Orton *nd Joseph Barry. Josle is friendly with Alan Murray, who lives at Miss Ivy's, and that infuriates her brother, Neal. He likes Coral Easton, for whom Josie has no use. The police begin their investigation. The police chief enlists the aid of Miss Gordon, then .Introduces Captain Lancy. well-known detective, who has been called in to take charge of the case. As Captain L*ncy begins to question all of those at Hill House, Miss Ivy pays a surprise visit. During a heated argument Miss Ivy collapses from shock and is I taken home. Then Captain Lancy begins his questioning. A heated argument between Coral Easton and Josie breaka out during the detective's examination of Sally Gordon. Josie tells the detective of finding a silken thread of beads from Miss Easton's gown in her room, the one that had been ransacked. Neal tells of a mysterious letter his mother received shortly before the crime, which affected her greatly. CHAPTER TWENTY-FOUR WHEN NEAL said he had told all he knew until "tonight," Lancy leaned expectantly forward. "Do you mean that you learned something more tonight—bearing on what you have already told us?" Neal looked at him in evident surprise. "Wouldn't you put them both together—what I had already learned and surmised—and the fact that Alan Murray was searching NOVEMBER Crowd a siege of rain, sleet, sunshine, wind and snow into 24 hours and you have a good picture of the arrival of November in this region. Wednesday was a strange day, a sort of duke's mixture ! here for Miss ivy'Newcomb only a that ended up in an uncomfortably wet ban-age of rain and * ew moments before mother was— hail. But this morning brought real snow—quite a lot in Ludington, thinning to the east until, by arrival at Walhal la, there was no early snow at all. Nothing plunges us so suddenly and completely into the next season as the first real snowfall. Until then every change of nature is gradual and no one day's appearance brings much of a jolt to our eyes. But the first real snowfall —then there is no longer any doubt. Spring blends slowly into summer, summer into .fall. But there is always, each year, that first morning when w<? wake to find a new earth. It is no mere continuation of yesterday, but a complete break—a white earth. It came today and, while it will go again, it is an unfailingly clean-cut notice to be prepared. Arriving in a flutter of snowflakes, November is a reminder of car radiators that need to be watched, of furnaces and stoves that have to be fed, of mittens and coats and dozens of other items of winter regalia. It is a reminder, need we add, that Thanksgiving day is exactly three weebs away. Hew to the Maginot line and let the ships fall where they may Going in your own car and coming back in an ambulance is one way to vary the monotony. Dangerous Disre of Drinking Prob By LOGAN CLENDENING, M. D. THE three major public health problems in the United States are tuberculosis, venereal disease and alcoholism. The handling of the alcoholism problem has fallen far behind the other two in efficiency. Few doctors are interested and the ideas of treatment are as divergent as the individuals who prescribe it. The inadequacy of our care of alcoholics who become public wards is shown in the report from a large city^ hospital, which in the period from 1927 to 1938 reported that nearly a third of all male admis- Dr. Clendening will answer questions of general interest only, and then only through his column. •ions were Alcoholics. Yet, the average period of observation was only one day. No attempt was made to study the patient as an individual or to provide psychologic treatment, ' which is the basis for any hope of rtclaftiation. The, treatment of delirium tre- mens'is more satisfactory than the treatment of the chronic alcoholic. 1 It used to be thought that delirium tremens was produced by sudden withdrawal, but most physicians who are widely experienced have ; /given that idea up. It is the alcohol \that poisons the nervous system and luses,delirium tremens. Supply'-; w*t«r and salt, sugar and vi- in B, with hydrotherapy and ra will give complete physical itation in most cases.

Repeal and the of ban to women have ' .wajte *nd put an en- peot an the problem, f of female admissions it j up to the male ad- The causes of regular imbibing are set by a psychologist as follows: 1. Escape from situations that cannot be faced. 2. Social drinkers who have drifted into the habit. 8. Maladjusted personality. 4. Symptoms of major mental disturbance. 6. To relieve pain. 6. Constitutionally inferior persons who drink because they like it. Ages of Steady Drinker The seven ages of the steady drinker also constitute a horrible example: . 1. The stripling. The other boys drink and he doesn't want to appear afraid. Age 20. 2. Sociable fellow. Sure, glad to have a cocktail. Age 24. 3. Regular guy. Occasionally gets a little too much. Age 28. Easy to quit now. 4. Booze artist. Can drink anybody under the table. Age 83. 5. The rummy. Doesn't get any kick out of it, but can't quit. Age 40. 8. The soak. Age 45. At it all the time. No thought of quitting. 7. Just another bum. Age 50. (If his liver hasn't downed him.) QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Reader: "Does a cavity in a lung ever heal just with rest and no other treatment, such as pneumo- thorax?" Answer — Small cavities sometimes do; but seldom.

For any on. pamphlet desired, send 10 killed?" • Lancy's face showed even greater Interest. "You mean that the time I saw Miss Ivy in the lounj,. was her SECOND call tonight?" "Didn't anyone tell you about the first one?" demanded Neal in his turn. "No. Tell me about it," commanded Lancy, eagerly. "You tell It, sis. You talked with Murray. I didn't." Briefly Josie told the story of Alan's call while Neal and Duncan were searching for Mrs. Peake. Before its close Lancy was on his feet, pacing back and forth across the little office. "This makes all the difference in the world," he said, reseating himself. "I caji understand now why you feel as you do, and yet you must admit that, if she is guilty, her second call was a most indiscreet action." I don't suppose Miss Ivy knows meaning of the word discretion," retorted Neal dryly. "According to all mother told us about her,, she always barged straight through anything which lay between her and what she wanted. And, after tonight, I shouldn't suppose there is much doubt in anybody's mind that what she wants and What she is determined to have is—Hill House." "True," Lancy spoke reflectively, "yet to come here only a short time after killing her only sister would, I should think, take more courage and self-control than she impressed me as possessing." , "I see what you mean," Neal said after a short pause. "She didn't give a very good exhibition of calmness and control, did she? Yet mightn't her wildness and fury have been caused by what happened a short time before rather than by what was happening at that moment?" "It might, of course, but grant- Ing for the moment that she did kill^your mother,,why did she do "That I can't imagine, sir." Neal, following Lancy'a example, rose from his chair and paced thoughtfully across the room. "What could have developed after all these years which necessitated a conference between them ? That's what I want to know. And, granting that some- tMng did arise, why did mother and she meet outside, for that is what they must have done, if they did meet, rather than in Hill House or Miss Ivy's cottage?" Neal stopped by the window as he flung out his last question. •Those are questions which we cannot answer now. We can only hope that Miss Ivy will recover "Look there, that's a light down there where they found mother P Menus of the Day By MBS.

He leaned "closer to the glass and peered intently out Into the night. "Come here, quick," he cried. "Look there. That's a light down there where they found mother. Come quick!" Lancy, who was at the window at Neal's first word, led as they, followed by Chief Forrest, dashed from the room. I could only sit and stare after them. I was sick and scared, both at once, and Josie, by her own admission, was no better. "Oh, Sally," she wailed, "Neal's all I have left—if anything happens to him—" "It won't," I said stoutly, wondering the while why my poor heart had sunk like lead into the very lowest portion of my anatomy. "Don't worry; he's with Captain Lancy. He'll be all right." But I couldn't comfort Josie with mere words. She had stood just about all any human could stand and not crack She put her arms around me, buried her face in my shoulder and sobbed her heart out, while we waited tremblingly for the men's return. Thank goodness, we didn't have long to wait. At the first sound of their voices, I hustled Josie into the washroom and helped her bathe her tear-stained face and smooth her rumpled hair. I'd give anything on earth If the Lord had given me a few pretensions to good looks instead of those qualities which, in tht words of my employer, make me an invaluable secretary. When that girl washed off her tears, smoothed her hair and rubbed on a little powder, she looked as though she had just come from a beauty treatment. "Did you find anyone? Who was it?" Josie and I both spoke at the same time. Neal shrugged his shoulders in a gesture of defeat while Lalncy angrily shook his head. "The nerve of him, for of course it was the—er—same one," with a quick glance at Josie, "coming back like that under our very noses! He won't be back again, that's final. Not with Chief Forrest on the job." "But what did he want, do you know?" Josie's eyes were aa big and round as a silver dollar. Something he'd lost or forgotten to do, probably. Just what, of course, I can't say. I only hope he hadn't already accomplished his purpose when you saw him. I'll have these grounds raked with a Ine tooth comb tomorrow, but it's impossible to do it tonight in this toe." ^^ cream \'y cup shaved 1 teaspoon soda sweet chocolate Cream the fat and sugars.

IN THE NEWS 20 YEARS AGO Miss Dora Schoenberger returned from Manltowoc where she had spent some time. 15 Years Ago TaTaPochon circle of Ludington Campfire girls met at the home of Helga Sahlmark, 707 East Ludington avenue. 10 Years Ago Donald Melin entertained a group of his friends at a delightful party. 5 Years Ago Rev. Paul H. Clark and William J. Mulder returned from a business trip to Grand Rapids] "Captain Lancy," Neal's face held the most utterly puzzled expression I have ever seen, "if the light we saw was held by the person who killed my mother—" "Yes?" Lancy spoke encouragingly. "Then Miss Ivy is not the one. She couldn't—" But Lancy was gone. He tore out of that room as though borne on a hurricane. Neal, with a bewildered face, stared after him Nor did ha move or speak until Josie giggled feebly. Then, with a wry smile be turned to us: "What on earth?" he exclaimed. "We'll soon know," she answered. "He's coming back." When Lancy re-entered the office he was smiling grimly. "I've sent ah officer over to Miss Newcomb's," he announced. "I do not believo that she could have recovered sufficiently to be out of her house again tonight, but we'll find out. That was a bright remark of yours, Dr. Peake. It will either acquit her of your charge or—" In silence we waited for the of- fiber's return. He was not long away. We heard heavy footsteps tramping toward the office, and Lancy arose and opened the door. "What news?" he asked as the officer came into view and saluted. "I saw the nurse who is taking care of Miss Newcomb, sir," he said. "She says the laciy still is unconscious and will undoubtedly remain ao for some time. Any other information we desire must be obtained from Dr. Willis." "Good work. Thank you, Ladder. That is all." As the officer disappeared, he turned back to us. "That settles the suspicion of Miss Newcomb, Dr. Peake, for if it had been anyone but the murderer or an accomplice with that light tonight, he would not have run away when we went out." "And I'm glad," cried Josie, a sob in her voice. "I'd hate to know mother's sister was responsible for her death." "But we must not forget that she is In some way mixed up In it," Lancy returned gravely. "Else she would not have come here tonight to see your mother." "And now it's up to me to apologize for my words to her tonight," muttered Neal with a twisted grimace. "You can imagine what she will say to me." "It will be some time, I think, before you can do that and, perhaps, Miss Ivy will be in a gentler mood by that time." Lancy's voice held a determined tone. As we rose to go, the chief came to life. "I want to >alk io Miss Gordon first. Til send her up to you in a lew moments, Josie."

It is light enough to be easily moved—but veryjturdy in construction. Note the grain trough on each side and thr inverted V m the bottom of tho hay compartment. Planting Without Plowing James Laten farms over a thousand acres of rolling upland and bottom land in Lincoln«Co«inty, Tennessee. Up to 1931 his upland fields were badly erode!! and rapidly becoming almost worthless because of loss of top soil. That year he started on the job of getting all of his upland in Korean lespedeza—and ffovi'mg a crop of small grain on the lespedeza land e>och year without plowing. This plan has worked out splendidly. .Erosion is a thing of the past^-he gets a full crop of grain every spring- plus a full crop of lespedeza for pasture, hay or seed—and year after year the lespedeza is adding nitrogen to the soil. In preparing the lespedeza s«d for seeding oats, wheat, barley «r rye, he stirs the soil deeplv with a subsoil .cultivator shown in the sketch—and then goes over th'c •unace with a disk.
