I'll give you my 'stage setting': I'm 19 years old, have a car of my own, a marvellous home, the most precious mother and dart on. earth and a devoted brother who thinks everything 1 do is perfect. I have pals by the score, both girls and boys and to cap it all I go to an exclusive girls' college. "Now don't you think I should be the most placid, contented girl in the world? Yet, I'm not. I seem to be eternally searching; for something which isn't material, yet something which I can't seem to find. I think sometimes that I am too much of an idealist. ' "Often I sit and ponder and wonder just what it is I want. Then I think that if 1 could fall in love with someone who would fall in love with me that I would be gloriously happy. I have so many boy friends and here I am wanting one whom I can love—and who will Can't "Stump" Us ON COLORS! WE'VE ALL THE NEW STOCKING SHADES!

RUNS REPAIRED FREE 42 W«t Washington Street WASHINGTON COUNTYLIBRARY New Books for tht Wtck So many books are being written about the events in Europe and their effect upon the rest of th world that it is hard for the la> reader to decide which to read and what to believe—which are propa ganda and" which unbiased ac counts. Some-of the more authori tative and impartial are among the new books placed on the shelves o the Washington County Free Li brary this week. "Our Country Our People, and Theirs" by Merle E. Tracy, former editor of Current History, is a comparison of living conditions in Russia, Italy, Ger many and the United States. Tbe material is arranged in four paral lei columns in order that systema tic point-by-point comparison maj be made under twenty topics such as: area and resources, agricul ture, labor, business and trade, living conditions, health, the family education, culture, national defense and human rights. Those who wish to follow the changes in boundaries of countries or to locate cities mentioned in the news will find in the reference collection "An Atlas of Foreign Affairs" by J. E. Horrabin a very valuable aid. It contains forty-one maps showing recent developments in Czechoslovakia, Austria, Albania. Spain, Palestine, South America, and elsewhere—with explanatory text on the opposite pages so that the reader may follow campaigns and refresh information on past treaties. "The Military Strength of the Powers" by Max Werner is, as the itle implies, an evaluation of the strength of the various nations. The author, "a noted military authority who cannot use his own lame because of the possible reflection on relatives in his native and, presents a vast storehouse of deas and information. Much of the jook is accurate, though some reviewers have noted a bias toward, md glorification of, the strength of Russia." W. O'D. Pierce's "Air Var" gives the psychological effect f "wings over the world" as well s the technical developments in iviation. The authority upon Nazi idealogy s the "Nazi Primer; Official Hand- ook for Schooling the Hitler "outh" translated by H. L. Child s. nd written by the Nazis them- elves. A book which is required eading for Nazi youth, it explains simply the theories of a pure German race, of territorial expansion, of economic self-sufficiency, and others. "Russia Without Illusions" by Pat Sloan is an evaluation of the government of that country, of the achievements and failures, the good features and the bad. of the new system called "Communism." Modern dictators are said to have gone back to the writings of Machi- avelli for their ideas of government by power. So it is not surprising to find among the new books a translation of Valeriu MarcuV'Ac- cent on Power," an interestingly written biography of the Florentine office clerk who, four centuries ago laid the foundation of modern political science. A. A. Milne's "Peace With.Hon- or," though an older book, has been added to the Library shelves because it is one of the most outstanding books written about peace —"A forthright, unadorned and commonsensical ABC of pacifiism." Milne's recently published "Autobiography" is a pleasant book and an optimistic life story told witb Milne's own particular humor. The readers of his plays, novels, essays or children's books will not be disappointed in his autobiography. "The Red Harvest: A Cry for Peace" is an anthology of poems written about the European War of 1913, edited by Vincent Godfrey Burns. "One Hundred Poems of Peace: An Anthology," is edited by Thomas Curtis Clark and Winfred Ernest Garrison. Teachers of religion will welcome, the volume "Christ in the Fine Arts: An Anthology of Pictures, Poetry, Music and Stories Centering in the Life of Christ" by Cynthis Pearl Maus. It is divided into six sections .containing material illustrative of the nativity and childhood of Jesus, Jesus the Man. Jesus the Crucified, the Resurrection and the Ascension, and Jesus n present day life. "The Psychology of^djustment"' by Dr. Laurence Frederic Shaffer s "an objective approach to mental lyglene. 1 ' Rentaf Books Aldington—Rejected Guest. Burt—If Love I Must. Ertz—One Fight More.

A number of individuals and civic groups of Berkeley Springs will take part in the annual Mummers' parade at Hancock the night of October 30. Plans have been completed for the annual pageant which is expected to be the most colorful ever held in Hancock. There will be many participants from the War Influence western section of county as well as Washington communities from nearby Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Heading the parade will be Maryland State Police followed by the Mayor, Council and mounted marshals. Forming on High street at the graded school, the route will follow to Parsonage street, turning left on Main street to Heller's Service Station where contestants will counter march and disband at the judges' stand. $150 In Prizes Judges for the event have been listed as follows: W. B. Simmons, Berkeley Springs; Professor Peterman, Clearspring, and Professor Lamberson, of Warfordsburg, Pa. They will award more than $150 in prize money. Arthur White, secretary of the sponsoring body, stated that a large number of individuals have signified their intentions of entering the parade. A number of Hancock business places are entering floats and the committee on music reports that several musical organizations will be in the line of march. The parade is to start promptly at 8:00 o'clock. Additional lights are to be placed along the streets to afford spectators a better view of the parade. UNION MEETING. love me. By loving a boy I mean someone whom I will marry, of course. "I think it is disgusting for a girl to pet or permit any boy to hold her hand. I don't pet iu any form and I'm no snob because I never air my views. I know girls who pet with different boys every night in. the week and yet they never know that I heartily disapprove of their actions. They never keep their boy friends long because as you say and I agree with you, boys—the right kind do not like girls who are easy. "When I graduated from high school i was chosen the most popular girl in my class—a class of boys and girls no different from the boys and girls in all average American high schools. That, I think, is sufficient proof that 1 am not snobbish. I can write this to yovi because I did not go to high school here and therefore people do not know of this. "During the past four months I have been going around with nine different boys several of whom I have known for almost a year. This is the way I am: I meet a boy, see him a few times and then he asks me for a date. I consent and then I find myself going swimming with him, playing tennis, dancing and going dozens of places. "Then I begin to get wary and I ask myself questions. I like X a great deal but, heavens, if he'd ever find it out I'd die! I won't admit to my closest friends that he arouses anything but a passing interest I figure that he may tilre of me and when he does I don't want him to think he means anything to me. X tells me how good looking I am, how much I mean to him that he wishes this date could last forever and I laugh it off—because I know he doesn't mean a word of it. "The whole time I'm guarding against X Or Y or Z finding out that I like-him. 1 act indifferently and I don't want to. This may rob me of the man I love because I think that were I getting married tomorrow, I'd wait for the man to say 'I do' first, so I would be sure he- wasn't kidding me. "It's terrible to feel as I do so I am calling on you for help. "Rescue Me." * * * Dear "Rescue Me": There is nothing "wrong" with you. Your searching is only the searching of youth itself—that irrepressible driving force which advances each generation a little farther along the frontier of the unexplored. That you have, lost "the common touch" is irrefutably attested to by your selection by members of your own era as the most popular girl in their midst. Humanity is unconsciously selfish. If you are sought out it is because you have much to give. Enjoy your friendships with the boys—the more the merrier—and ! | continue your present conduct. You i i know that ,;ny man worth having j | values most the love he has to! 1 win and fight hard to gain. \ | Never doubt that loveAcill come ; =, o you. When you meet the man s-ith whom you can build a home ou will know beyond all needs of xplanation that his wooing is not a "line." Believe me, you will find the happiness you are seeking as your heart responds without one marring tremor of doubt. Hold to your ideals. The way of the idea.list, as that of any thinker, is alone—but not lonely. He lays his own foundations for happiness and the civilization of the world builds upon them knowing they are sound.

STANLEYS Pnhllc SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)—Subjects of Scorpio are courteous in social contacts, but in business they can be blunt and aggressive. They like to live well and dress luxuriously. They enjoy outdoor spofts and travel. They are susceptible to flattery and make mistakes through this weakness." Friday, October 27 This is not an important day in planetary government, but adverse aspects may cause delays and obstacles where swift progress is recognized as important. While the mind may be clear and the judgment keen, unexpected difficulties may block deals or manufacturing contracts. In the evening there is a benefic aspect for conferences among employers or business leaders. HEART AND HOME: Exotic fashions accepted by the younger generation may offend parents, but fathers and mothers should be patient since boys and girls merely reflect subtle tendencies due to the stars. The wearing of the colors astrologically beneficial is a vagary that should be tried. Subjects of Scorpio have dark red as their lucky color and their fortunate gem is the opal. BUSINESS AFFAIRS: This is a fairly favorable sway for retail business. Buying for holiday entertainments this year will be lavish and the Thanksgiving hospitalities will be more extensive than ever before. Elaborate attire is to bring money to importers of jewels and furs. NATIONAL ISSUES: Assistants to Cabinet officers are to gain special recognition before the new year. Promotions are forecast as long established careers come to a close through sudden death. Conservative ideas are to be conspicuous as policies, economic and financial, are discussed by high officials. Plans for the utilization of men and women on relief as employes in novel departments of activity will cause opposition, but there will be a growing demand that the able- bodied who receive financial aid give adequate returns and not a travesty on honest labor. INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS: Stars that encourage superstition are believed to rule Hitler who has been told that his sway is to end in a short time. According to a noted astrologer, April 26, 1941. will be a date of evil portents, because "the progressed Moon will be in twenty-five degrees of Scorpio in exact opposition to the cusp of his eighth house and in opposition to the fixed star Algol, the star of j violence and violent endings." This reading will be remembered with interest, since the Fuehrer is reported to have read his own destiny in the stars. Persons whose birthdate it is have the augury of a year of great prosperity and accompanying happiness. There may be envy aroused by the unusual good fortune and there should be care in avoiding deception. i Children born on this day prob- | ably will be of domineering nature j and strong character. These sub- I jects of Scorpio usually have tal- ents as organizers and are successful in administration of large interests. ANNOUNCE BIRTH Mr. and Mrs. Stanley E. Harbaugh, 599 North Prospect street, announce the birth of a daughter at the Washington County hospital this morning. NO PROFIT READING, Pa., Oct. 27 (£>).—A junk dealer thought he was getting a bargain when he bought a collection of scrap metal at a police auction of unclaimed articles. The auctioneer thought so too— until the dealer discovered he had purchased his own property, stolen from his shop several months previously. LEFTOVER CAKE IDEA Here is a new pudding idea: Toast leftover cake (plain or frosted) on both sides and serve warm, covered with your favorite fruit sauce. Grapejuice and pineapple go well together for a sauce mixture. SADDLE OF GENERAL LEE IS OWNED HERE Although it is not generally known, a saddle used by General Robert E. Lee during the Civil War is in the possession of Clyde Hite, Baltimore and Ohio Rait- "(jway agent at Keedysville. Mr. Hite said he gained possession of the famous saddle through a relative who was a descendent of Lee's letter-writing secretary. The saddle is not on exhibition. HENPECKED GOLDSBORO, N. C., Oct. 2?
