WEDNESDAY. APRIL ie. 1941 BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS pnng and Summer Scout Activities To Begin Next Week At Osceola Mother Should Be Glamor Girl In Eyes Of Her Children, Too UY RUTH MIU.ETT It isn't enough for :i woman to h:ive ykimour lor her husband — she .should have it for her children too. That Is what hen:eli" mother told me. And it's Mr.;. Canin^ton, Elaine Currin^ton. of two children, a cinch that cine who writes me OSCEOLA, April 16 — A nine- point program of recreation and self-improvement i'or Boy Scouts liii.s been outlined by A. P. Barham, vice-president and auins executive of the Eastern Arkansas ComK.-U, assisted by .S-joui masters I-'red .Smith and Le.slie Spi'ck. Mr. Speck ha.s been en^a^ed as recre- aticnal leader for O:sceola yomiy people during the .summer. Mr. Bi'.vhu!!! explained briefly the program at the Scout Court of Honor ceremonies held at the hiy.h .school auditorium Thursday niyht as which Mr. .Speck presided. The schedule will bi-qin Wednesday ni^ht, April '>;*. \viih an address on "Sanitation ;md Di.s- ease" by Dr. W. B. Cirayson. Little Rock. Stale llealtli office ho-ilth exhibits and moving piciure.s on health will be shown at the high .school. The following day, Scout.s will distribute health literature. begin a sanitary .survey and inspection of premises preparatory to the Clean-up campaign closing May b. when a.warcLs will be made to white and colored residents for the most improvement. Citu^n.ship and loyalty will be emphasized May 19-25; safety education projects and prcgra:n>. May 2G-JU1K- 5; tours of inspection, and study of all industrial plants of the city from June G-17; agricultural field trips with radio serials "When a Girl Marries" and "Pepper Youngs Family," is a thvmorous creature in the eye.s of her young son and daughter. Mrs. Carrinyton thinks that the way for a mother to be glamorous to her own children is "to have a life, of her own apart !rom them. So that they see her, as they always see their lather, as one who i.s an important person with his own a Hairs to tend to." The "lite of her own" that Mi's. Carring ton recommends doesn't have to bu a career or a part-time job. It is even better, perhaps, that the mothers ouLsiue life be just an expression ol her owiv interests and iu.r own talents. Tiie ihin-j that makes me agree with Mrs. Carriir^ton i.s knowing an elderly woman who didn't bother to make herself anything at all but her hu;:bund's wife and her children's mother. Her husband is dead now, and her children grown. She lives with a daughter, and though she i.s taken care of physically, she't net much out of life. For it is too late for her to decide to be a person in her children^ eves, She was always a drudge to them, and now she- is a drudge who Ls no longer able to do any work. "HEINO A GOOD MOTHER" | They aren't interested in her or I her opinions, and she cant be in- I telliuently intersted in them, be' cause they have grown too far away from her through the years (The children are selfish, you may say. But many children turn out to be self is) u That -mother pinned her faith on "being a good mother," which used to mean slaving- and sacrificing for children and demanding nothing for one's self. How much happier she would be today, and how much happier her dauijhter would be to have her around, if she hadn't, neglected herself all through the years — if she had tried U» hold a little ghunor for her children, by being- interested in things outside of "them.

Cal. < UP)— Hand- tailored, leather-covered gas tanks for military airplanes, which will literally swallow 30 and 50-caliber machine gun slugs without leaking so much as a drop of fuel, are out of the experimental stage and ready for mass production, it has been learned here. Vital fuel tanks, vulnerable to gunfire, long have boon the "Achilles heel" of wartime aircraft. A well-placed stream of machine gun bullets could blast the conventional metal fuel tank wide open and the constant loss of fuel would make the plane useless for further combat. In many cases during the first World War, planes were forced to land in hostile territory because ot this loss of fue). Percy H. Heron, inventor of the self-sealing tank, and president the Heron Manufacturing Co. ol San Diego, declares that hi.s tank will give a war plane 1UU per cent immunity from this fate. The leak-proof fuel tank, brainchild of the present war in Europe, i.s not Heron's exclusive idea. Several rubber concerns are turning out tanks of their own design for use on military aircraft. Heron, however, believes his tank[ PAGE THREfc vlll prove more effective under ire than any other now being; produced. The Heron tank is constructed of a top covering of steerhicle. over ilternate layers of soft sponge rub- wi' and strips of a secretly- processed which chemically reacts to gasoline when punctured mul "flows" over the hole, seal limit. here upon the suggestion of tho KiwunLs Club. Special seats will be reserved for members of tin- Kiwanls Club and their friends. It was said thai models of the tank withstood the withering fire of :JO and f>u-callber machine guns unusually well in government tests. "The nature of the tank's const run ion makes It a hand-tailored job," Heron said, "Eighty per cent ol our employes will be women."
