In- 'oivnation to this effect features the reports being made now to the office of the chief of chaplains of the'Army at Washington. Successor to the mess'hall, the tailboard of a truck or the game room of the camp service club, : these beautiful white clapbosrd chapels have come to be symbols of America's religious freedom in the Army. Through these soldier- churches, the chaplains are building up in the camps, posts and stations, some of the solidarity enjoyed by the urban parish. The nation's three largest faiths—Catholic, Protestant and Jewish--have equipment and furnishings to conduct their respective services at different hours in the chapels. Civilian attendance at the chapels has also increased Parents and other visitors to the camps are being invited to the services. Congregations in nearby communities are beginning to offer spring planting gifts to the chapel grounds.

The day of the glamor girl is gone. Workaday America turns to a new goddess, the all-American working girl. That's one reason why stylists, designers and hardheaded merchants suddenly have become highly business-girl conscious. You'll be seeing her in the home-town shop windows soon. She's & composite Kitty Foyle. Her creator is Lois Felice, who studied thousands of photographs of stenographers, salesgirls, defense workers and file clerks before .she started modeling her all-Arhericah girl.

She's particular about good grooming, spends considerable time, and money on attractive; suitable hair styles. 3. She likes simple, well-tailored clothes, has definite ideas about cut, style and color. 4. She's smart, modem to her capable fingertips, efficient and unassuming 1 . ': 5.

She has good taste in clothes and-makeup. . * * * IN THE MAIL D EAR Miss Turner: In going through some of my things the other day I ran across this T>oem. I believe the word United States, could be substituted for the word, Finland. I thought perhaps you might enjoy reading it. • Sincerely, A Housewife, Mrs. Z. M. C. <! • * Spring In Finland, 1940 Walk softly, Spring, this year! .You pass across the graves of our young dead, Who once thrilled at your tread, And sang your songs into Love's listening ear. Be slow! Be late! Delay To crush these barriers of snow and blood Where We and Winter stood To keep the spoilers of our. land at bay. Let our fields barren lie, We have no time to think about them now; Men can not drive the plow With Red Death dropping on them from the sky. Some time our bells shall ring •'Once more in sudden song, to .- haste and greet Your glad and gallant feet; But Oh, for this one year come slowly, Spring!

Attending a priorites clinic for Gulf States business men, Hewitt with restraint said "the attitude of a substantial percentage of business- men is considerably behind the actual facts" but added that they were "trying to keep in business in spite of the laws of supply and demand." All business men must realize, he said, that the demands created by the military production program are greater than the supply on hand in the ea-cs ot many vital materials. H« said there had been a lagging knowledge of wartime scarcities on the part of the consumer, pointing out that the manufacturer and the business man heard first about the cutciowns while the housewife realized it only when she attempted to buy.
