"Comic magazines are here to stay," says an educator, who points out that the dimes paid for comic books made up a third of the Income from magazine sales by whole- sate dealers.

Mama may start out deploring somic books and saying her Johnny isn't going lo read them. But even though she refuses to hand ever a dime the first lime Johnnv looks longingly at a stack of comic " books in the corner drug store .she'll get around to shclhn; out for them eventually. One day Johnny brings home a stack of funny books a kid at school gave him. Or he borrows a few from the kid ncx: dnor. And from the minute tlml he opens the first comic book until hi. closes the last one, all Is peace and He isn't racing through the house traJii'A hi* little si-ster, Betting into ACTION COTTONS—Relieve II or mischief or complaining that lie not, that free swinging "skirt" wilh hasn't anything to do. the inverted pleat Is really a culotte, j I'eace—It's AVomlerful designed f<ir action by Doruthy Cox i g o long as he has a comic book of McMulUn.

The' womnn, ft native of Cleveland, mar- ; ricd an Hungarian in 1925 and went to Hunsary to live. She remained there throi»gti the war. although she testified .she always represented herself as an American national. > She asked the court to reassert her U.S. citizenship. This was de-, nicti because it was established the woman voted in an Hungarian election In 1916. Judge Matthews re- ectetl her plea that she had to vote on pain of being jailed and losing icr ration card—ami that she voted inti-Commimist. (or the comic books.
