T!T — — Herr Stephan Dolnta, Ruhr com miner, used to weigh 170 pounds. He weighs 120 pounds flow. He gets the rations of a heavy workef, but he turned' most of them over to his wife and their two sons, 11 and eight years old. All four sleep in the same bed in their one-room "home," about 15 square i'eet in the basement of a brick building that formerly was a vegetable storage house.. The. Dolata's living quarters were described by a British officer as "about average" for miners' families in this bomb-wrecked- Ruhr Industrial city. Some families fare bolter, some'worse. What Dolata and his fellow miners need — If they are to 'increase the output of Ruhr coal needed for next winter In Europe — is more food and homes. . . Ih this they are backed up by British officials of the North Oer man Coal Commission. "It is understandable," said one "for .people to say 'the. German? started the war; let them starve. But- this isn't a case of pitying the Germans. It is just one of the ironies of war that if we are to have coal from German mines we must have .miners who are fit to mine it." At the Dolala home Frau Johan na Dolata apologi/ecl, not for , it scant furnishings or the'cr.amn.ec room, but because she just hac washed the- cement floor and i still was wet. The place had oiv oor and one window. Frau Dolata displayed her fur ishings: One bed, a small stove vhich burns either wood or coal, wo portable wooden closets, one dicker chair, two boxes lhat serve is chairs, a. couple of pictures on he wall and a vase of blue and vhile flowers on Iho window sill Thai was about the extent of heir belongings. The Dolatas twice vere bombed out of previous lotnes. •How do four persons sleep li one bed?" She smiled and shrugged. "What do you do for food?" Frau Dolnta, a gaunt, blondi womaiii put her hand to her head and lauahcrl heartily. •Nicht," she said, using the Ger man word that sounds like "nix 1 and means about the samn. It's net quite that bad. Her hus band, as a heavy worker, gets be tween 3.000 and 3,500 calorios day. Frau 'Dolnta and the childre are supposed lo gel about 1,00 calories, Ihe normal ration. She contended, however, lhat be cause of a lack of potatoes an cereals those on normal rations actually get about 700 calories a day. At'this lower rate the combined rations- of husband, wife 'and children would be 5.600 calories a day. or 1,400 each, but il isn't divided lhat way. Most of Ihe family's r;u lions go' lo Ihe children, who also gel food at. school.

His appetite has improved con siderably and he engages the guards stationed outside his cell ii cheerful conversation frequently the Warden said. Before »c unfolded his accounts of strangling and dismembering a little girl and knifing and shooting two women, the 17-year old student ate sparingly, slept fitfully and was sullen toward his guards. Millions of women spend billions of. dollars in their attempt to be made beautiful. If it achieves its )urpose, it is money well spent, or it is every woman's Christian duty to be as easy on the eyes as circumstances permit. And the magicians who plant roses on sallow checks and turn stringy, mouse-colored hair into golden curls have made a contribution to the sweetness and light of life for which we beholders can not be loo grateful. But when I read the daily beauty columns in the papers and magazines that tell how by watching their dictn and counting their cal- orics, taking knee exercises or roll- Ing on the floor the ugly ducklings can change themselves into glamorous swans, I marvel that the high priests and priestesses of the beauty cult never give their clients the one lip that really will work ang get results. And that is to spend as much time and effort in furbishing up their souls as they do in acquiring a girlish figure. For, after all, beauty is a thing of the mind as well as of the flesh.

It isn't classical features. It Isn't a Greek profile, golden hair or a pcachcs-and- crcam complexion. It isn't even violet eyes. It is something in a woman's face that bespeaks a lovely character, something that comes from the heart and not out of jars and bottles. No amount of mascara, eye shadow and false lashes can make beautiful the eyes that are cole and hard and cruel. You can paini a cupid's bow on a mouth with lip stick, but you can't make it kiss able unless it is soft and qulrkec with love, Then there is intelligence, with out which there can be no rea beauty.

But until vcars off—I don't know whclhc 'm in love or what—" I felt a pang of pity for Steve, saw, as Cecily had seen, thai the irl he had .loved was gone for- 2vcr. Perhaps the old attraction voulcl hold when the new CCcily emerged from her chaotic stale nit there was no way of forclcll- 'ng that now. There was no way of knowing, cither, whether Val would pro- 'or an ashamed, uncertain Cecily 0 the arrogant dream girl he had wanted. "I'm not going back to college," Cecily said. "That's the first thing lluil makes me think I'm not go ing to be any one to admire. ought lo be one of these chin-up, shoulders-back lasses, but I'm not, I'll have to resign from my so- ivjrily—" "Why?" I demanded. "They don't know about you," "I know," Cecily said. "I've dinged girls out for a lot less than being born illegitimate, Ann Mavis. 1 don't belong in lhat house any longer." Cecily turned back to me suddenly, "Aunt Mavis, please let me stay (lore lonighl if my bed is still in Corinna's room." ."Ot'lcoursc," I whispered. My voice would betray me ycl, I thought. "I just want to be with Corinna tonight," Cecily said childishly and began to cry again. But despite her grief she slept long before I did. The memory of my harshness was a punishing weight on my heart. And it was not lightened Hie next morning when Cecily and Val met at our breakfast table, and her poise deserted her so completely that she ran from the room. Well, the wedding is over now. Delia and I have swept up the last uf the rice, as we have clone so ninny of the tasks concerning Cecily together these past months. Delia has not forgiven me but she has admitted that justice was on my side —not in words ,but by opening the doors of her house lo 1 mo—, to Corinna, to others whose >ackground she scorns. She had 10 basis any longer for setting Barricades around Cecily on the claim of superior birth. She would have driven Cecily from icr if she had tried and she knew 1. It-has taken Cecily a long time .o find herself—jolted as she was rom believing herself superior to everyone but God into an equally 'allaciousu conviction that a girl .aintcd by a beginning like hers could never again meet any human being as an equal. It was Robert, accustomed to youngsters like Carl and Val, who Drought her out of that dreadful mental morass. Val's letters encouraged her, too —they bore so unmistakably' the impront of Robert, even though they held Val's signature. Val knew the hard uphill way lo a self-confidence that was neither arrogance nor conceit but a sure knowledge of one's real worth. 1 was grateful when Steve returned on his last 'urlough before being sent overseas, that Cecily was well enough emotionally to welcome him almost as she had on other occasions. She eveu ac- iis ring last year because -she was nad at Val for washin" out. This year she isn't mad at Val." "You mean she's going to—" "Yes," said Delia grimly, "it enough to make a dog howl. I'v put in more than 20 years builc ing up to a suitable marriage io her and you—" I. don't remember the rest of it and lhat a clever homely wnma can make herself Ihe most fasc nating woman in the world.
