VALLEY FORGE, Pa., Aug. 2 ( tf , Dark-haired Majorie Hillis, who liked living alone so much she wrot a book about it, got married Tues day. Not only that, but she 1. Enthusiastically proclaimed "There's nothing to beat old , fashioned love." 2. Anounced she'd "like to raise a family." The 49-year old New Yorker famed as author ot "Live Alone am Like It," capitulated to romance in a marriage to Thomas Henry Roulston, 65, Brooklyn chain store operator, while his 30-year-old son acted as best man and his two grandchildren watched the cere mouy in the home of the bride's sister here. They'll sa.il in the Normandie from New York tomorrow night for an European honeymoon. "I'm all excited," confessed the bride—whose friends kept remind ing her she once wrote that it was better to read in a bathtub than wait around for a swain's telephone call. What did she have to say for herself, falling- in love like this after all that about the advantages of being a bachelor ghi? "I've taken so much kidding I'm used to it. 'I will be a housewife—the old- fashioned kind. Why, I have already dropped all my syncidate writing. I'd like to raise a family." It was an old-fashioned ceremony all the way. There was something old, something new; something borrowed, something blue; and all that sort of thing. The Rev. Henry Woll ^ quietly coached the principals in their roles before the ceremony. Old shoes and rice showered around the retreating newlyweds. Jack Dempsey began his boxing career in 1914 and was then known as "Kid Blackie."

THE PROBLEM: This youngster can't walk yet, but he has. learned to stand up, with one hand for support on the top of his pen. Trouble is he's so fascinated by this new-found.ability to put all his weight on his feet, that he. stands and stands all day long. By the end of the day he's exhausted. What's more, the doctor says standing for such long stretches may weaken his bones and make him bow-legged. THE ANSWER: So his Tnother decided that here was an individual problem that needed an individual -cure. In her baby's case, this canvas swing did the trick. Sonny can exercise his leg muscles enough swinging his feet back and forth. Later on, his mother will tie toys to the swing, so he'll have playthings handy. If they drop, there's no damage done. He can learn to haul them up at the end of a string. jiven Long Terms In Robbery Case Leavcnworlh.

S., Expires At Home. LONDON, Aug. 2.— Lord Howard o£ Penrith. former British Ambassador to the United States, died last night at the age of 75. As Esme William Howard, the veteran diplomat served as Britain's representative in Washington from 1924 to 19GO. Sir Esme Howard, during a long and notable career in the British diplomatic service, had represented his county in various capacities in many of the capitals oi" Europe and twice was assigned to the British embassy at Washton, first as councillor of the embassy and in 1324 as ambassador, succeeding Sir Auckland Gedcles. Having prepared for the diplomatic service in early manhood, he took pride in characterizing himself as an "old diplomatist" as contrasted with those who had distinguished themselves in public rather. than diplomatic life. Hence, his appointment as ambassador at Washington was regarded as a distinct success for the regular service which had beea anxious to place that post again in the hands of a trained diplomat. Sir Esme, born at Greystone Castle, Cumberland, September 15, 1SG3, came from one of the oldest and most distinguished families of England. He was the youngest son of Henry Howard. A. Howard, although a Roman Catholic, played a prominent part in the defeat of the Spanish Armada. The Greystoke Howards eventually turned Protestant, but Sir Esme returned to the faith of his ancestors before his marriage in 1S98 to Lady Isabella, daughter of Prince G-iustiniani-Bandini, whom he met when he became attached to the British embassy at Rome in 1S86. -They had five sons.

New World Record Is Set By Plane DAYTON, Ohio, Aug. 2 (£>).—The TJ. S- Army Air Corps announced last night its second world record in three clays as aviation leaders turned toward this home of the Wright brothers for today's 30th anniversary of Army flying. A "flying fortress" today carried 5 7 000 kilograms (11,023 pounds) a distance of 1,000 kilometers (625 miles) at a speed of 259.39S miles an hour. It streaked from Wright Field to St. Jacobs, 111., and back at 20.000-foot altitude. An Italian plane held the previous mark of 251.878 miles per hour. Even as the vanguard of visitors arrived from New York and Washington, the Air Corps supplied a "preview" thrill by sending its largest "flying fortress" — four-en- gined bomber—cross-country in 9 hours, 14 minutes and 30 seconds, or close to 250 miles an hour.

There is a situation existing in my home which you may be able to remedy, "My -wife's mother and father are residing with us and they dominate the household as if it were their own. 1 really do not mind this but I do mind yieir telling my wife how to run her life and mine.

"My in-laws got a job for my wife and I do not approve of this, as I feel that my wife should be at home with my baby and see that he is. well fed and clean. Here is another angle: I am dependent on my in-laws for my living, "if I should move out of my home and leave relation in order to earn your livelihood. I have the utmost sympathy for you and my first suggestion would i be for you to get yourself a job independent of your lather-in-law. 1 know that jobs do not grow on trees but I would make an earnest effort for the sake of my wife and child to secure an independent position. If you yourself had money enough, you could suggest to your in-laws that they move elsewhere and you would pay their rent for a short time until they got organized. I am aware of the fact that you say they have plenty of money danger to your and her future happiness. Your wife's parents would listen to her favorably and if you know a concrete, unkind thing your in-laws have said about you, I suggest that you tell it to your wife if you have not already done so. Tell her how much you love her and how loath you are to bring up anything unpleasant about her parents but the situation is making you so unhappy that you cannot keep it to yourself any longer. Talk to her when there is no chance of your in-laws interrupting and please be as gentle and kind as you would want your wife to bo, under similar circumstances. you both.
