The project, consisting of the church, a cemetery and the parsonage, was described as the outgrowth of Bilbo's desire to erect a memorial to his parents and himself. - • ' The donations ranged from $155 by A. B. Friend, one-time Bilbo campaign manager who worked on the $1,731,000 Key Field at Meridian, Wliss., to $3,500' i'rom Maurice T. Reed, who built the $2,000,000 Jackson, Miss., air base. Donations of varying amounts we're listed by F. T. Newton, Edwin Jones. B. L. Knost, Mike T. Morriss'ey and John R. Junkin, all of whom worked on the '$13, 000, 000 Keesler Field at Biloxi. The 'contractors also testified they made varying gifts,. loans and campaign- contributions to Bilbo. Most of the gifts were in connection with' constructioh"'pf ''a 23-acre lake and, ari island "Dream House" on Bilbo's- P'oplarville estate. •••-•• - ' The witnesses gave the following account of' the aid they extended: Neyvton — $1,200 loan which Bilbo repaid arid $75 for furniture as a hristmas present. Knost — $1,200 loan on which Bilbo still owes $450: Morrissey — A $6,000 loan still covered bv Bilbo's notes, -$3,672 worth of work in digging the lake and a swimming nool and a $lj900 Cadillac. " Junkin — $1,194 worth of work on the still-unfinished swimming pool. Reed — A $1,790 paint .ioh 'on dream house No. 1 '(near the 'lake) and $5QO worth of furniture for dream house No. 2 which- was fu'r- nishcd for Christmas, 1941. Morrissev said he put idle equipment on the lake and swimming pool when he learned that' Bilbo was trying to do all the work with a one-armed Negro, two 'boys and a mule. Junkin said he put in concrete crews on the 25 by 50 foot pool when he hapnen^d nast o"H '" Bilbo trying to do the work with a few' wooden forms ana' a one-uag cement mixer.. . : • Reed said he drove past one day, noticed that dream house No. 1 needed painting, and ordered it done. All of them placed the costs on their war contract 'books at first but transferred them to personal accounts later. " ' • ' • The committee also heard that Bilbo obtained a $3,000 loan from A. L. Shushan, New Orleans dry goods merchant, to help 'pay alimony to his divorced wife; The money was handed Bilbo under a leaky shed near Pearl River, Miss., July 21, 1938 and repaid "by Grant Stewart, a New Hebron. Miss., retail merchant, July 15; 1040, Shushan -said. . The committee brought out that the loan was made during a period when Shushan was having trouble with the internal revenue department about his income taxes and that he was repaid during Bilbo's 1940 reelection campaign. Shushan agreed that he asked Bilbo's help in trying to settle a civil suit on the income tax matter. He said it had nothing to do with the loan, however. Nor, he said, was the repayment involved with any threats to bring it up in connection with the campaign. Fight? By The Associated Press Newark, N.

Mrs. Jesse Brown Hostess to Y.W.A. counter as casually as you would n hat for Which you* had lost your taste, and never give it another thought, loo many other lives arc mixed up in everyday divorce, loo many little half - orphaned chile/- ren are Ihe victims of wrecked homes. The war is being blamed for the epidemic of divorces that is sweeping the country and no doubt, lo a large extent, this is justified. Most of the boy - and - girl marriages are foredoomed to failure in any case because they were to young ancl ignorant lo know what Ihcy wauled in their mates, or to assume Ihe responsibilities of a fain- y. And for the older men and women, Ihe war made an oul for husbands and wives who had losl Ihcir allure for each other ancl whoso marriages were beginning lo be a burden to them. Many a wife enjoyed her first breath of freedom Irom her husband's petty tyrannies while he was in the Army, and many a husband found Army discipline easier to bear than a henpecking wife's nagging. Adjustment Hard ^ now thai Ihe war is over and Ihe husbands have come marching home, both husbands and wives are finding il hard lo adjust Ihemselvcs lo each olher. They have both had a tasle of freedom and Ihcy are loath to put their necks in Ihe ma- Irimonial yoke again. Hence the rush to the divorce courts. No doubt the return home of the soldier is a bitter disappointment in thousands of cases to both the husband and the- wife. In Ihe long years of soldiering in foreign parts he has been building up his home in his imagination as a place of peace and perfect joy and contentment, and he has pictured his wife as young and gay and beautiful Great is his shock when he finds his palace of dreams is a lilllo crowded house.or apartment, with loisy children yelling and fithling and smiabbling, and thai his wife las pollen Ihe middle age spread ind acquired bossy ways, ancl lhat somehow he doesn't seem to fit inlo the picture anywhere. .And Ihe wife is equally disillu- "imied. for she had expected lhal Johnny would be so overjoyed at Celling back home again and being ivith her once more that they would lave a second honeymoon, and that no would praise her for how well she had managed everything and think the children lilllc angels And she can't understand why he is bored and fault-finding, and why he wants to spend all of his lime talking love lo her. And so they decide thai they no ongor love each other and 'that .hey would be happier apart or married to somebody els.". And an- to adapt themselves to a changed husband and wife, as well as to a changed world. II would slop many a warlime divorce if the husband and wife would wail, a couple of monlhs before filing Ihcir appeal for a decree absolulc. (Released by The Bell Syndicate, Inc.)

Did you think I wouldn't find out?"

He knew her name? Magic! "Have you been her long, Rick?" "Long and often. Right here. I had a feeling you'd show up." He took her hand in his. "You were bound lo, honey." Without further speech, they had fallen into step, sauntering down Mam Street, side by side, their hands just touching. They stopped before the door of a confectionary store. "Is this a good ice - cream place?" "Hermann's? The best place in Blakesville, Rick." He laughed. "And Blakesville's the besl place in Iho world." .

Mamma is queer about some things. Maybe we can find somebody to introduce us." J-K? understood at once, but shook his head.
