Y., which was conducted by our newest unit, the Capitol District Bridge Association. Mrs. Olga Billiard and I won the pair event, just barely nflsing out Howard W. Bennett and Dr. William S. Hutchins of Schenectady by one point. Today's hand played an important part in our victory. Mrs. Hilliard held off until the third round of hearts. She then led the ten of clubs and East properly refused to win. Tifow Mrs. Hillard cashed four rounds of Diamonds. She realized that in order to make her contract, the ace of clubs must be in the East hand. This seemed probable--otherwise, West might have overcalled. By ERSKINE JOHNSON NEA StafT Correspondent The girl with the most photographed voice in America could bite through a n a i l every t i m e she thinks of it. Why. it was a w f u l . For years sh- wanted to meet a big .stiKlif) executive. Then the casting offce made a date for her to meet Buddy de Sylva. the big man at Paramount who could make you a star overnight. Her heart started t h u m p i n g as a casting d i r e c t o r took her to de Sylva's office. "Mr. de Sylva," said the casting director. "I'd l i k e you to meet Mrs. Camel." "Oh-o-o-o-o-o, i t was terrible. Sara Berner said. "1 talked to de Sylva for 20 minutes. But every body called me Mrs. Camel. It was Mrs. Camel this and Mrs. Camel that. Nobody even mentioned my name. Nobody call«d me Sara Berner. Just Mrs. Camel. Even today when I see Mr. de Sylva on the lot he says. 'Hello, Mrs. Camel.' It's heart-breaking." De Sylva, you sec, had to approve Sara's voice as Mrs. Camel for t h a t gag sequence in "The Road j to Morocco," which is why the casting director took Sara to his office. A Thousand Voices Her name probably doesn't mean much to you, either. But. you're f a m i l i a r with her voice in a thousand forms on screen and radio. In fact, she has the mast famous i voice in Hollywood. She's the j voice of Red Hot Riding Hood in i those M-G M cartoons, the voice of ! Little Jasper in George Pal's Pup- petoons. She's Josephine of the Amos and Andy show, Gladys Zy- biseo of the Jack Benny show. Being just a voice in a town where faces are .so important is paying Sara big dividends. "I can get even with a lot of people,'* Sara chuckled. For instance, those "Speaking of Animals" shorts in which the animals speak. "If I don't like a girl because she's catty or something, I just copy her voice for a cat or skunk." On The Way Up Like a lot of other young ladies who are attractive--Sara is very much so--and talented, she wanted to be a great actress when she left home in Tulsa, Okla., for New York But she got only as far as Philadelphia, where she sold hats in a d e p a r t m e n t store. Then she got an acting job on a radio station, later joined a stage unit and was playing the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles when Hollywood discovered her. Not long ago Sara received a call from a studio for a role in a pic- lure. "I was thrilled," she said. "At long last I was to appear in a picture. To have my face on the screen. You don't know what that means to a voice. Well, the makeup man spent over an hour fixing my h a i r and putting on my makeup. But all they shot, was the back of my head. I was a long distance telephone operator!" When George Pal first started to make the Little Jasper films they hired a little Negro boy for the voice. By the time they got around to making the picture. although, the boy had grown a head taller and his voice was different. They sent for Sara Berner in a hurry.

That makes them an ideal crop for the most inexperienced of Victory Gardeners, who can grow tomatoes in virtually any region of the United States if they will follow a few gardening rules. They are one of the richest sources of vitamins A, B and C, and are exceptionally adaptable a^ a food because they may be used in both salad and cooked- dish recipes. Thus a great many of them may be eaten without tireing the taste. The tomato is a winter crop in some southern regions. In the north the seeds are started early in the spring, in flats indoors, and later transplanted to the garden. .

B ECAUSE they are so v,-idelv . adaptable to the United States j the department of agriculture has made extensive studies of tomatoes. Here are the recommendations of department experts: Tomatoes like a rich soil but will bear fruit earlier if the soil is light and only moderately fertilized. Nitrogens cause the plants to produce excessive vines and less fruit. The plants should be kept weed-free by light cultivation and they should be protected against drought. In dry weather heavy watering at infrequent intervals is recommended. In the home garden the tomatoes may be trained on stakes or pruned to one stalk, held by a support. This is to save space, and if this method is used they may be planted 18 inches apart. to rows three fe*t apart. If un- tttiittd they should be at least ttrwefeet apart, in rows four ·Mt from cacti other, Affroent* for prosing: Space fc s*wd ami more fruit u crown · feet CulUvatwn ii Hold Everything "My boy is in the guard house --ain't he a chip off the old block?"

Off, OUR BOARDING HOUSE The tomato is the captain of the All-America victory Garden. These plants were pruned to one stem, tied to overhead frame which kept them off ground. easier. The plants mature earlier. : The fruit is kept cleaner and is easier to harvest. j Arguments against pruning: I t ! reduces the number of tomatoes' per plant. It takes time and care. I Many of the arguments for p r u n - 1 ing are not based on established ! facts. j TF AN amateur attempts t o ! * prune tomato plants he needs' the advice of a gardener experienced in that task. For earlj planting, the department of agriculture recommends Earliana, Bonny Best and Pritchard varieties, .larglobe. Globe. Greater Baltimore and Stone are recommended for medium and late plantings. Because tomato diseases carry over from season to season in some soils, it is not advisable to plant a tomato crop two -ears in succession on the same' soil or upon soil where potatoes or melons grew the year before. As for cabbage, it grows in al- ttott any soil but it is a heavy feeder and responds remarkably to favorable growing conditions. TN NORTHERN states plants are * started in hotbeds or greenhouses. The plant is hardy and can be set out in the north as soon as the ground can be worked in the spring. The soil should be well fertilized and during the growing season extra dressings of nitrate of soda, sulphate of ammonia or some other quickly available nitrogen may be applied at three-week intervals. Cabbage likes al « dant moisture; light cultiva; .1 and protection against worms which may infest it. The Unitec States department of agriculture recommends Early Jersey Wakefield and Charleston Wakefield for early planting; Copenhagen Market and All Seasons for the midseason and Flat Dutch and Danish Ball Head for late planting.
