"Czar" REFUSED CHILDREN SECOND HELPINGS; AND DILUTED MILK Ruled With Iron Hand Yet He Ate Meat While Youngsters Nearly Starved GETS 30 - DAY JAIL TERM California, Pa., March 9, UP). Accused of denying his children a second helping of food at meals, 36 - year - old Miner Bell went to jail today to serve thirty days for cruelty. He was sentenced by Justice of the Peace L. E. Sands, who heard the testimony of Mrs. Lucille Fisher, a nurse, that Bell also ordered her to dilute the milk she served the children. Bell's wife, Mrs. Bessie Bell, the mother of nine children, was, described by Humane Agent Frank Galway as the "most dejected woman in the world." Mrs. Fisher testified Bell paraded as "czar" in his crowded home near Coal Center in Washington county, adding: "He never allowed the children a second helping of anything. He forced me to give them milk diluted with twice as much water. "He kicked his son, Harry, 11, from one end of the room to the other and then hit him with a catalog. He ate fried bacon for his dinner and breakfast, but made the children eat beans." Galway's chief, E. M. Smith, of Pittsburgh, told the magistrate he visited the house and found one - year - old Joseph lying in a rocking chair seriously ill of pneumonia. He said he delivered $5 worth of groceries and was told by Mrs. Bell: "This is the most we have had to eat in many a year." Made Wife Work While He Loafed, Yet Saved Pittsburgh, March 9, UP). A middle - aged housewife wept in morals court as she told of a five - year struggle to feed her family on a $15 weekly relief allowance while her husband hoarded $2600. The husband, Albert Jakini, 52, was arrested on a charge of abusing his wife and children. In his pockets, police reported they found the money wrapped in brown paper. "That man he have all that money all that time," Mrs. Jakini, 42. sobbed. "Me, I scrub, I work to put shoes on the children's feet, get them clothes, send them to school." Jakini. she testified, came to this country twenty years ago and obtained his citizenship papers three years ago. Since he was placed on relief rolls five years ago, he had not made any attempt to find work, she asserted. Nine years ago, she said, Jakini drew savings of $2000 from a north side bank and never told her what became of it. All of the relief money, she asserted, was spent in feeding the family. Jakini told Magistrate Albert D. Brandon that his wife knew he had the $2600 all the time, but Brandon replied: "Don't try to shift the responsibility to her. You unjustly robbed the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. I am not going to fine you ... I am going to hold you for court."

Obliging Attendants Enjoy Chance to Vary Routine and Aid You By BETTY BROOKS Shall we name the baby Escu - lapius? Shall we name him Ilaherim (meaning thunderbolt), Ingomar, Jedediah, Remaliah or Zenaido? What shall we name the baby? The age - old question is one that will never die. Some unimaginative parents letter their children in the order of arrival. This scheme is designed to give the children some sort of nomenclature until they are old enough to select names for themselves. A number of large families follow a theme in naming their children, it was learned today in a talk with Miss Alice R. Eaton, librarian at the Harrisburg Public Library. Sooner or later they turn to the library for suggestions. One family of sons followed the prophet theme. The family arduously studied the Bible until the arrival of the ninth son, when no remaining names appealed to them. Another theme chosen by a family of daughters was that of the vines ivy, myrtle. Still another chose trees holly, etc. One family pursued a dual theme that of jewels and flowers.

Her middle name was that of a flower. Pearl Eglantine was the oldest, then Emerald Lily, followed by Opal Gladiola and Goldie Rose. Their brothers were named for the ranks of England Earl and Duke. For suggestions, fathers and mothers inevitably turn to the reference books in the Public Library. About thirty children are born each week in this city. A name must be found for each one. Library attendants, who rather like the variation from their day's routine, first offer any of the information that is contained in the books on their shelves. "Chats on Christian Names," "Romance of Names" and a dictionary of given names are among those proffered. "Names For Children," by the way, has been missing for the last four or five years, so that some family must have a constant reference book. In Emergencies! In emergencies, should no name listed in the books strike the fancy of the mother and father, the large list of subscribers is at the disposal of the attendants.

If your baby daughter is blond, name her Phyrne, Dor - nadilla, Eburna or Auronette, all synonymous for "little golden one" or "fair." Perhaps your strapping young son is blond, or curly - headed. Name him Xanthine or Crispin. Maybe your young daughter already shows signs of outstanding intelligence. Name her Mitsis Incylta, Elfina or Amalberta. Name your son Cumbert or Ulema. Your infant may be a quiet child. If so, name him Langundo, or name her Hazel - belle or Sophrosyne. A first - born son may aptly be called Purvance. If he is a tall baby, choose Moraghan. Loyal daughters should be named Er - mesinta or Meyotas. A noble son Edelbert. Thomas meaning twin should more often be chosen when twins are named. Hqwever, the library has hundreds of alternatives to suggest. "We cannot promise to suggest nicknames, too," Miss Eaton continued with a laugh. HUSBAND ASKS DIVORCE James W.
