About that time, friend wife will probably have strong suspicions that her life partner is tipsy, or on the i verge of being so. The family head will, of course. deny everything.

Bennett also detailed sev eral simple home tests that can be used to advantage in proving or dis approving one's contention. For the information, of Friend Wife, here are a few of them that may be employed on the family head, ere he lays his weary head down for a brief few hours of deep slumber: 1.

Flash a bright light in the eyes of the "suspect" and compare the reaction of his pupils with the reaction obtained when a light is flashed in the eyes of another person. (Look for a glassy stare). 2. Have "suspect" stand erect with heels together, eyes closed, and head back, to observe balance. Use the center of the room, he might fall against something.) 3.

Use the oldest method of all: have "suspect" walk a straight line, toe of one foot against the heel of the other, then have him turn and walk back again. (Always brings results). 4.

The violent love scenes end with a slightly subdued Belle Fawcett becoming Dion's aide- in a series of machinations which are culminated by a political plot electing Brother Jack O'Leary as reform mayor of Chicago. A fight begins here brother against brother and far away in the Patch the cow kicks over the lantern in the barn. Then upon the screen is in terrifying beauty, how Drive on Peiping Red Napoleon to Attack Where Japanese Opened War; Japs Fear Revolt Shanghai, May 6 (IP) The Chinese Communist army under Gen.

Chu Teh, "Red Napoleon" of the Far East, was reported ready today to attack Peiping, seat of the north China Japanese provisional regime which Japan conquered a little less than a year ago. Half the city's gates were closed and Japanese machine gunners patrolled atop its walls as the Communists, now the eighth route army, manuevered into position to attack. Chu Tch, whose entire life has been devoted to the sword first against the Manchus. then the Chinese national government and now the Japanese was believed to have concentrated his guerrilla forces to the west and southwest of the city. In Peiping, United Press Staff Correspondent F.

M. Fisher reported that the roar of cannon fire could be heard in the city, apparently from the west. Windows in all sections of the city rattled with the fire. Japs Fear Uprising At the same time Japanese units darted through the city in house-to-house searchers for "traitors," be-lievedly ready to start an internal uprising at the moment of Chu Teh's attack. The Japanese have taken strict precautions ever since occupying Peiping, against a possible uprising in the Chinese civil population.

Meanwhile, reliable reports here indicated that Emperor Jiirohito of Japan had sent his brother. Prince Chichibu, to China to bolster the morale of Japanese forces locked in a month-long battle on the "north-central Lunghai railroad. Heavy, but ineffective fighting continued in the railway triangle northeast of Suchow, where the Lunghai line is crossed by the Tient- sm-Fukow railroad which runs south through Nanking. Offensive Subsides Tancheng, one of the key points guarding the Chinese fortifications along the Lunghai line, was encir cled and the Japanese garrison cut off. The Chinese offensive subsided.

however, and additional Japanese troops from Manchukuo were rushing to that front. The Chinese earlier had anticipated a smashing victory such as at Taierchwang a month ago when the Japanese, for -the first time- in their history, were said to have abandoned their wounded while retreating. The Japanese claimed to have resumed their offensive in Shansi against an estimated 300,000 Chinese menacing the vital regions west of the Peiping-Hankow railroad. Foreign military observers asserted this week that the Japanese were faced with the task of virtually, reconquering Shansi province as a result of widespread Chinese guerrilla activities.
