16 BROOKLYN EAGLE, Your Wartime Problems Wives Should Pay Own Way I am a mother-in-law of a man how being discharged from service, writes Mrs. H. S. T. "He turned my paid me for their board when they out pay and I would like to make To whom shall I apply and what It is not possible to attach this muster-out pay, or, in fact, any payment that this man, or his wife, may receive from the Government as the result of military service. Uncle Sam takes the position that he cannot be a collection agency for indebtedness of this sort. If a member of the armed forces has contracted debts while in service the aggrieved debtor may write to the service man's or woman's commanding officer with some hope that an honest debt will be paid. But, after the final settlement of accounts is effected, the army or navy loses jurisdiction over the dischargee. Mrs. H. S. T.'s letter brings up another important point Not all mothers-in-law are as bad as they are painted. But, a service man, or his wife, should not presume upon the kindness of any relative, even a parent, in these days when every penny counts. If a wife comes back home to either her husband's or her parents she will avoid endless complications by making a fixed agreement with the home folks as to her board bill. SMALL BEGINNINGS Your columnist now has the perspective of -over 50,000 letters re ceived from service star folks In concern home problems. It is a start over trivial matters. These lack of clear-cut understanding on who is to pay what. A great deal of emotionalism greets the wife as she returns to her home after saying farewell to her man. Many a practical-minded wife has been silenced when she has asked for an agreement on what she should pay as her share of the household expenses. She had better insist that a fair sum be set, taking into consideration the amount of her monthly allowance. She should be prepared to adjust that sum if the home folks find it inadequate. And it had all better be a businesslike transaction. UNWANTED GUEST Nothing is more pathetic than the unwanted wife in any household who does not meet her normal obligations. We watched one girl recently who took her husband's folks too much for granted and was gradually discovering that they regarded her as a rather burdensome war charity. She was beginning to pay, many times over, for her lack of common sense when she entered the family group. Not until she faces the issue, and makes an adjustment, can she hope to enjoy her stay there. ASIDES TO READERS To G. F. M. Nearly all the functions the Army Emergency Relief have been taken over by the Red Cross. There was a duplication here. To SALLY B. The Red Cross often makes Investigations on allowance matters but It does not have the power to cancel your allowance. It merely checks on the facts and submits a report to proper army officials. You can rest assured that they will do everything to help you gain your proper allowance as soon as possible. If you have a problem, write to Richard Hart, care of this newspaper. A stamped, addressed envelope will bring a personal reply. Laid Up in Hospifal, Soldier Dabbles in Art Being wounded and laid up in an Italian hospital has its advantages, according to Pfc. Stanley Wasser-berg of 699 Ocean Ave., because it In art and painting again. A graduate of Erasmus Hall High School, the 19-year-old infantryman plans to make art his life work when he comes back from the wars. Wasserberg tried not to worry his parents about the seriousness of his wounds, but he wrote a friend that his "fountain pen and other things in his pockets had been shot to pieces." He writes his parents now that he is getting along fine, and that he's keeping himself occupied by writing letters for wounded buddies who can't write themselves. He left a defense job to enter the army last April. He went overseas five months ago. LT. ROSENBLIETT KILLED IN ITALY A few hours after he was reported wounded on March 2, 1st Lt.

Uncle Ray Young Blister Beetles Destroy Insects' Eggs Among the many kinds of beetles, there are some known as "blister beetles." This name came from a substance in their bodies which will "raise a blister" when placed on the skin of a human being. Thousands of blister beetles have been dried and powdered and used in making certain medicines. Full-grown blister beetles are from half an Inch to an inch long. Often they are brightly colored, some being green, others blue or blue-green and still others of golden hue. Scientists call one type of blister beetle the "Epicauta vitata."It has the habit of laying eggs close to the eggs of locusts. The eggs hatch into "larva." which crawl or run about the ground, digging little holes here and there. They are looking for locust eggs! When they find a batch of eggs they start to eat them. One larva may take three days to eat a single egg, but thousands of them can do great damage to the "crop" of locusts. Locusts have destroyed plant life of big value to people. It may be that the breeding and spreading of "Epicauta vltata" will prove the best way of halting the locust pest. Even if they do good work for us, these beetles must be placed in the class of "robbers," since they feed on eggs of other insects. Some blister beetles are enemies of bees. These have the special name of "oil beetles." Their young hatch from small yellow eggs and swarm over flowering plants. Waiting on the flowers, they catch hold of bees which come to get nectar. Then, tightly gripping "hairs" on the bees, they ride through the air. If a beetle larva is taken to a hive of bees lt can expect to get out in a hurry or else get killed. On the other hand, it may cling to a "solitary" bee and may slip off In a nest where it is safe from attack. After eating a bee's egg, the larva casts its skin, and then starts to work on honey near the egg it has destroyed. (For NATURE section of your scrapbook.)

Kennan, DeMenasce and Fulelhan Miss Courtland.'s approach to the piano was literal and energetic. The result was that there was very little of Interpretation in what she played, and less of style. There were also technical inaccuracies. She Is to be complimented on including the works of living composers in her program even though they were not too enthusiastically received by her audience. The "Five Fingerprints" by Jacques de Men-asce and the Serenade and Syrtos from Fuleihan's "CypHana" had the most character. Their brevity, however, allowed for little more than suggestion of a mood.
