HELP FOR yVS^B^S It seemed a fairly amusing story as crime stories goJ A man had dropped his wife ai a New Tork theater and was on his way to park his car. At a halt in traffic a gunman climbed in the car, forced the man to drive to to New Jersey and give up his money and the car. The irate wife was .still pacing the lobby- when the man arrived for the play : at 10:15. • But the next day's follow-up story was- not amusing. The gunman was a former polratroop sergeant who had fought through the New Guinea; campaign. He had come home with a medical discharge, the Silver Star and the Purple Heart, a shrapnel; wound in his leg and a bayonet wound in his arm. He had Mlied 15d Japs. I^ow he had a war Job, a QUiet room with a soft bed, and enough money for a young man of 28 to llv^ on. There seemed to be nothing; in his present environment to lead him to crime. He was safe :md he .should have been haK>y. But apparently he wasn't so he .started drinking. When his senses returned h^ was in Jail,' charged witl^ a catalog of crimes-^kldnap- ing, robbery, larceny, carrying a concealed weapon. What will happen to him and a lot «f othier boys likie him—decent lads whose shocked nervous systems just can't take the quick transition from war's supercharged excitement of killing and dodging deatii to the routine of civilian life? The boy of this story is a source oi trouble for himself and others. He is not a criminal, but Jail might make him one. He is obviously ill, in. need of further hospitalization and expert psychiatric treatment. Shall he be sent to a veterans' Hoepltal by court order? Can this hospital be compelled to admit him on the clinical history of one night of crime? Will the black marks of a police record stand beside his name for the rest of his life? These are difficult and important questions. They will probably crop up, with variations, throughout the country for a long time to come. How they are answered will be' of supreme concern to the vet- feranis involved, and of. great concern to all society. No one who has not seen the Savagery of this war can appreciate the ordeal that our service- tnen are going through. But even &n Inadequate imagination should help us all, especially the faralllefl of veterans, to reallM how much patient help and understanding most of them will need. Mrs. John Fontaine and Wet.

All of which calk for more nursing, coddling and -fussing than ever if the old bus is going to endure for the. duration. What to do about it is old stuff by now. But perhaps a brief round. up is worth repeating, especially for the many service wives who may ; Le faced with symptoms of automotive senility that would even stump the family tinkerer who is now overseas. So here are a few do's and dont's . suggested by car and tire manufactiirers: Keep tires properly inflated. Check pressure weekly. Switch tires, including spare, at least every 5,090 miles. Check wheel align- meht, casing flaws, brake balance. Avoid fast .stops and starts—and don't speed! Have regular checks of ignition and battery. Replace old spark pliigs which Waste gasoline and put ar undue load oh the battery. Keep head and t «il light lenses clean. Have' ^;Mie biUbl oh Usnd. Hict the garage man go over dis- iribhtor. coir, condenser, voltagie regulator, generator and starter, bont: tinker unless you know how. -Oart ^es are'busy and abort of help, iut it takes less time and : bother to check for early trouble tiun to repair a breakdown. So use your car with care and hlndnegs in IMS' and youll stand a better chance of ^^Ving It at the station when your soldier or sailor tottttt hotne; Attentkm Baddies!

Im. . uM^T^ A DAY IN A VIRGINIA PLANTER 'S LIFE'(1713) IV 'TPHE road was merely a lane, or ^ so it would «e called today. It was not wide enough for two car- i oages to pass'while going in oppo- Hite directions, but this was no hardship, for carriages vreace^ so tew in Virgipia that two of them were not likely to mfeet on this' quiet road. It •was a beautifulhigh- <vay, running under a'green arch fif trees, and it wouldTtake the" four riders to Phillips' ordinate on the Pamunkey River. Froir there another road along the river ted to Belmore, which was the' name of Swain's plantation. '; As they approached tidewater ihe woods gave way to great fields of growing tobacco. Here and '<here they saw the huge bams to •ivhidi the tobacco leaf was taken to dry, and near by were the plantation buildings—a mansion .of .brick or of heavy timber for the toaster, and behind it a little village of the cabins in which the servants and slaves lived. The huts of the slaves were always separated by a small field' or vegetable garden from those occupied by the white indentured servants. , At that period of 'Virginia history, and for many years thereafter, tobacco was the life blood, heart and bones of the colony. It was an economic error of the most vicious kind for the colonists to lum all their attention to tobacco planting, but their motive may be ^readily understood. Tobacco was the only agricultural crop that could be sold immediately in Europe for cash on the spot. It was therefore looked upon as ready money. As a result the Virginians neglected every kind of manufacture. ; With leaf tobacco occupying •such a powerful position in the economic life of Virginia it is not surprising that it became a form of cun-ency. People carried silver coins in their purses and had some more locked up in their houses, but niietalllc money was used ohly in small ticmsactions. Substantial payments of every kind were made in tobacco. A clergyman was paid a yearly salary of' sixteen thousand pounds of tobacco; a Jichoidmiiuiter pe- celved''about half as. muc^. The wages of carpenters, bricklayera and mechanics were stated in terms of Jlobacco.- But tobacco varied greatly in Value ftorttin* to time. Tbeser fttictuirtiotls flcvC^a gambling unc<ertaint]r to business affairs. The economic pattern of Virginia life was disastrous to the small farinei:, aiSd' ih' the ertd it produced a pertntuiefit class of poverty-strickett whites. *• . • CWAIN and ftandall, with th^ servants;-reaebel the-Phillips' inn sh(a :tly after Hqan, 'which-was f crtunate.since PhUlips alwayshad the midday meal'sierved promptly at half-past twelVe. At the dining table there were three men andrtwo women besides Swain and Randall. One of tbe men was a professor—or teacher, as he war called—at William and Mary College in Williamsburg, and the womrai: were his- wife and daughter. He was on ills way to his brother's pSantaiion on the Potomac. Both Swain, and Randall knew him and his ladies, and there was much friendly conversation. The party lingered long over the meaL It wnas not served in courses, but all; the dishes were put down on the table at once. There was a vegetable soup, fried oysters with a- hot' sauce; flsh chowder, roast goose sti^ed with boiled peanutS) sweet potatoes, carrots, preserved fruit, apple pie and the patrons-had their choice of varletjr.of drinks, such as ale, beer, elder, rum punch, flip, sherry and peach brandy. The ladies wanted coffee a-''«r the meal, and it was finally brought in cups as large as bowls. 'While wa &ing for it' tta« professor's 'wife rcsnarked that at hpme -they had coffee every day, "Also tea, mother," said tHe young lady. "'Yes, coffee and tea," the mother agreed, and anyone could see that the professor's vriie con^ered'thif habitual use of tea and <^ffe6 .a ^rfep, vpward in sod &J prestliSB. ^ The professor paid no attention to the discussion of coffee; he was *ag^ to set'iorth liis -views on 'sin important matter. He thought, ;and-;6aid; that there should be a Igazettie in every colony—a g&zetts which would print and publisli the news of the colony, of all the oolonies, of the world. "Heartily do t agree with you sir," said a stranger who liad not, until then, said a word to anyone "Every colony ought to have a1 least one gazette—two would be oetter—^for knowledge, and thai means news-tmd informatics it one of the foundation stones ol civiliaed life. As far as I know there is not a news sheet in any of the colonier." "Yeis, there: ks," Swain said "There's one in BoBton called the News-Letter. I've seen it." "Do you can that flimsy little thing a public gazettie?" the professor demanded. "It is just one sheet, about the size o£ writing papeft", and—" "TSie Boston postmaster gets H out" said the stranger. "All he puts in it is what he hears in taverns and nearly everything in it is a lie." After much more talk about this and that, the smoking of pipes and the drinking of toasts, the professor remarked that he and his ladies must be on their way. Swain seemed startled, not ai the departure of the professor and his family, but at the flight bl time. "Why, it's half-past three," Swain said hurriedly. "Wc siioul< have been on our way long 'JS)I Landlord, bring our bill." (To Be Continued) Hrs. J. W. Gavin led derotlonals, taking as her theme "Worship". A reading was given by Miss DOnna ],Fjiy Minson. During the business session a parcel post sale was planned for the next meeting. -Guests at the meeting were Mrs. h^\e Minson, Miss Donna Paye Minson and the Rev. and Mrs. E. W. Harrison.
