By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) — "Dear Pavement Plato: Recently you wrote on how to tell if u girl is losing interest in you. I think I have just the opposite problem. My girl is showing so much interest in me I am afraid sh%wants me to marry her. llovv can I be sure? Doubtful" Nothing could be simpler, my boy. She is probably a talent scout for matrimony—and has picked you as her number one target—if: Her father keeps offering you his car so you can lake her riding. She always carries a needle and Ih^ad in her pur.so—just in case you should need a button sewn on. She would rather drink beer at a ball game with you thcan go dancing at a night club with Gary Grant. She starts making remarks such as, "Some girls like real expensive engagement rings, but 1 think that's a waste of money, don't you?" When you toll a funny story at a party, she chuckles even before you reach the punch line. She begins to take a kindly interest in your money. For example: "You're too generous for your own good, dear. You didn't have to tip the waiter that much." Instead of asking for tiic latest romantic ogcl at the lending library, she checks out the latest cook book. She proudly shows you a now burn on her finger and says, "1 got it in the kitchen last night trying out a new recipe." (Where docs she think you thought she got it anyway—sliding down a rope ladder from the Brooklyn Bridge'.') Your hair is f;il!ii\g out, but instead of kidding you she says "I just love your high forehcrtd. It's a sign of intellect."

Wardsworth introduced into the record figures purporting to show the Arkla earned over 171 per cent on invested capital last year instead of less than .six -per cent as the company claims.

WALDO'S'REVENGE By LESTER ARNO Tonight WHS (he <10th anniversary of Waldo Woimncistcr's appointment as Room Service (food and beverages) clerk at the Brumlcigh Arms Apartment Hotel. ' ' Waldo was not congratulated on his many years of service; not a .soul oven acknowledged his presence. Like his shabby desk, his old-fashioned upright tele phone, the unshaded light bulb Unit glared above him, Waldo was a fixture to be faken for granted at the Brumloigh Arms. The lobby had been redone, the apartments redecorated, the kitchen modernized, a new canopy bung under a new electric sign in front of the hotel—but Room Service and Waldo Weinmeisler had been ignored. In a way. it was really Wai do's fault. Me had never raised his voice in complaint, nevci dropped a note in the suggestion box, never deviated from the pattern he had set 40 years ago lie arrived promptly at 5 p.m. sighs, "My, you're so much fun to snuggle with. I hale skinny men." When you admire her new frock, she shrugs and says modestly, "It's just a little thing I made myself." She can't stand the cigars other men smoke, but "yours are different somehow—they smell so man/ ly." Instead of a $1.3!) necktie,'she buys you an expensive fishing roc for your birthday.

Such was the nature of Waldo Weinmcistcr's life's work. Room Service in an exclusive apartment hotel peopled by the well-to-do consists of taking orders over the telephone, communicating them to the chef and then checking out the Room Service tables as the waiters wheeled them past the desk toward the service elevator. It sounds like a maltcr-of-fact job, but it wasn't. First, there were the substitutions on the table d'hote dinner, despite the printing on the menu which plainly read, "NO SUBSTITUTIONS ON TABLE D'HOTE DINNERS." Then there were the appetite peculiarities of the various tenants. Those who wauled their steaks burned to a crisp; those who wanted their steaks barely (o nod to the fire; (hose who wanted their milk warmed; those who insisted on no ice in their water glasses: the list was infinite. Then there were the telephone complaints after the waiter had brought the food to the apartments. Waldo sighed. lie received no graluities as did the waiters, he got no Christmas presents as did (he chef, he was not warmed by the smiles of patrons as was the dining room hcadwailer. No, none of these acts of human kindness came his way. Instead, fr,r 40 years, his ear was bent and beaten by indignant callers, impatient customers, irate tenants. And here he was . . . "celebrating" his 40th year on the job. * WE SALUTE... Hope's Independent Grocers! NEW! CARNATION TUNA Leaner! Meatier!

If this is the Brumloigh Arms' idea of a joke, I am moving out! You know the very sight of snails makes me deathly ill"! No one on the bus paid the slightest attention to Waldo \Vcin- mcister as he sat, a list in bis hand, laughing softly to himself. ' Mr. Wharton, J4A. likes his steak very rare.
