What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

WILSON • Neellure Newspaper Syndicate WNU Beryls'. eLABIBEL BRUNKE'S chauffeur %.-- 1 eased to the curb in front of the most famous of Fifth avenue's beauty temples. Claribel's gracious entrance into the salon was greeted by a care- ful bow from the wax -mustached man- ager himself. \Ah Mademoiselle Brunke—good afternoon. We shall be pleased—\ \I'd like to have you personally do my hair, Seisms,\ she smiled. \It's rather important today.\ \But yes, Mademoiselle.\ \I'm going to put myself in your hands, Seizes,\ she said. \I want a haircut entirely different from any- thing I've ever bad. Something suited to my type and personality. You know what I mean?\ \But yes, mademoiselle.\ Seises draped a snowy sheet around Claribel's shoulders. \For you, mademoiselle, the smooth close cut is the best. Then to bring out the natural piquancy of your face, a fluffy bang across the forehead— yes?\ \I'll leave it to you, Seises,\ she smiled. \Only make me as beautiful as you can.\ Claribel hoped that tonight Rick HollImore would ask her to marry him. She had known Rick for a year. Late- ly she had fancied that there had been Something new in his eyes; something more personal when he looked at her. \There mademoiselle!\ \Perfect Seizes,\ she sighed. \You couldn't have done better.\ \Now a shampoo and wave, mademoi- selle?\ \Please.\ Seises proudly combed out the fin- ished coiffure. It was a masterpiece. But then Seises was patronized be. cause he produced masterpieces. \It is lovely, Seises. And it is im- portant that I be particularly nice to- night.\ Claribel sat opposite Rick Hollimore in the dim dining room of the Cafe Brun. She was faintly disappointed. Flick who invariably noticed the details of her costume, had not yet commented on her changed headdress. She sipped her cocktail and tried to recapture the Intimacy of the past few meetings. \You're quiet tonight Rick,\ she said. \Tired?\ \A little,\ admitted Hollimore. \This business of casting for a new play gets me every time. I think I have my fin- ger on a type I want and then—pouff ! She drops her aitches or bites her fin- ger nailer \Poor boy.\ But Hellimore did not react to her sympathy. ; Claribel felt chilled. At the moment she knew that she meant no more to Rick than the centerpiece of crystal tulips. If he didn't soon see her as an individual Claribel knew that she would always be just so much atmosphere in his life. He was becoming too accustomed to her beauty. Suddenly his eyes lit up. She fol- lowed his glance. \Do you see her?\ he exclaimed tensely. \The girl with the hair, red and crisp looking. I want her for the beggar girl in Scarlet Slippers. Can't you just picture her?\ Hollimore's voice was eager. \She probably stutters,\ said e'er - \But her hair! It's a masterpiece of art and imagination. I wonder who her hairdresser is? He certainly knows his stuff. Funny, the difference a hair- cut makes to a woman. Isn't it?\ \Yes isn't it?\ echoed Claribel bleakly. As Hollimore excused him- self and strode off in the direction of the red headed girl, Claribel retouched her lips and ran a slim finger through her fluffed bangs. Her hands were cold. • • • Elite's reflection in the mirror above the kitchen sink gave back her vivid smile. Her crisp red -gold curls were almost completely obscured by the in- verted pewter bowl. \Don't cut off too much, Mom,\ she warned. \Just enough to smarten the edges.\ \Haven't I cut your hair enough times to know how to do itr. returned Mom Bailey brandishing her shears above the bowl. \Keep still and don't fidget.\ Clip, clip, clip. The burnished ring- lets dropped to the towel around Elite's shoulders. Snip, snip— \A man in the restaurant offered me a part in a play last night,\ said Effie. \He said he liked my haircut\ She laughed. \You mean you're gob' on the stage?\ asked Mom. \No said Elite. \I'm going to marry Tommy. He asked me last night.\ Effie's hair released from the con- fining bowl, crinkled and glittered as if each hair were Individually endowed with vivid life. \Gee Mom,\ Elite leaned on the kitchen sink and admixed her radiant mop. \Gee. Mom, that's swell.\ She turned to her mother. \The man in the restaurant said ms bar was a BANKERS ACTIVE IN SOIL SAVING MOVE Issue Book Describing Causes, Ravages and Means of Pre- vention of Erosion MADISON, Wisc.—Under the Vtle \Protecting Investment %Takes in Land,\ the American Bankers, Asso- ciation Agricultural Commissist has published a booklet dealing slth the conservation of soil resourses as a pressing national problem. \Careful estimates indicsie that 750,- 000,000 tons of soil, suspended and die- - solved, are carried off po the sea each year by running water,\ the commis- sion's book declares •An equal amount removed from its soiree is left en route. This mean, a totaiof 1,500,000,000 tons, equal to approximately one ton for each acre of laud in this country. The Soil Conservation Service estimates that 36,000,000 acres have been ruined. \There are 125,600,000 more acres that have lost the valuable topsoil, and it is estimated that still another 100 million acres are being converted into marginal or sub -marginal land, bring- ing disaster to those trying to eke out a living from erosion enfeebled soil, and threatening ruin to the next gen eration, since these destructive forces are going on at an increasing rate.\ In a chapter devoted to control and preventive measures for soil losses it describes terracing, strip cropping, wind erosion control, gully control and the control of losses from leaching. Other chapters are devoted to soil resources, the toll exacted by soil ero- sion, methods for keeping soils produc- tive, state and national uses for non- agricultural land, forestry in a soil con- servation program and wild life in a land use program. The booklet de- scribes in detail the marshalling of many forces which is being brought about under the leadership of the Soil Erosion Service to meet this national problem. How Bird -Banding Is Carried On The United States Biological Sur- vey says that bird -banding work is be- ing developed through the activities ot volunteer co-operators in the United States and Canada, who are sys- tematically trapping and banding birds. The promiscuous banding of fledg- ling birds is not approved by that office, and in enlisting new co-operators It is desired to obtain the services only of those Who will establish and main taln trapping stations. This is, how ever, one of the most attractive meth- ods of studying birds, and each sta- tion has the opportunity to carry OD work that in itself may be an im- portant contribution to knowledge of the different species. How Felt Is Made Felt is made of wool, or wool and hair, or fur. The wool is carded into laps of the length and breadth of the web to be made. Layers of these are placed one above another until the desired thicknes is secured, the outer layers being generally of finer texture than the interior. The whole is now passed between rollers partly im- mersed in water. In the machinery by which felt fabrics are produced, roll- ers with a rubbing and oscillating movement have senerally an important action. The materials commonly used for felt hats are the furs of the rabbit and other animals and the wool of sheep. How to Trap Mice Mice seek refuge in houses, barns Ind other buildings and often do con- siderable damage to stored food and :lothing. G. C. Oderkirk, rodent spe- Aalist of the United States biological survey, suggests the following method of trapping these pests: Pieces of fresh fried bacon tied to the triggers of the common snap trap or a smear a a mixture of rolled oats and peanut butter on the triggers will attract mice to the trap. The main idea is to use plenty of traps. A dozen or more properly set along walls should re- move mice from the house in one or two nights. How Post Stamp Glue Is Made Adhesive matter on postage stamps of the United States is made from roots of the cassava plant grown in Java. Roots are washed, ground to a pulp, dehydrated and then ground Into a white, starchy flour. It is made by mixing 40 parts water to 00 parts of cassava flour and heating to 140 degrees. It keeps indefinitely and the sugar content prevents it deteriorat- ing. No satisfactory substitute has ever been forma masterpiece of art and sophistication. Tommy says it looks like a sunburned dandelion. You should've seen the dame with the man who offered me the job. Marcelled and sleeked and shel- lacked until she was afraid to move her neck for fear she'd throw a hair out of place. Swell looking, too, ex- cept for a scared look in her eyes. / guess she was afraid of spoiling that classy headdress. \Funny fen't It, the difference a haircut makes to a girl?\ How America Answers Her Critics By RAYMOND PITCAIRN National Chairman .Sentinels o/ the Republic We have been hearing a lot of criti- cism lately concerning our American methods and principles. For a while the detractors were con- tent to sneer at our art, our literature, our simple recreations and pleasures. More recently, however, they have broadened their scope. Today their hardest attacks are directed — often from within —at our democratic form of government, with its effective guar- anties of freedom and opportunity for all. They favor. instead, certain Euro- pean patterns which vest all power in a highly centralized government rather than in the people. Such criticism has not gone unheed- ed. It is bearing greater fruit than many of us realize. Its arguments re- sound from the stump. Its influence appears in much of our recent legis- lation. How can we combat it? One method is to apply the acid test of realism. Why not turn to such critics and ask: \Under what other form of govern- ment have a free people developed the wilderness into a nation as great, as wealthy, as productive as our United States? \Under what other form of govern- ment have citizens attained as high a standard of income, of living, and of general well-being as has been enjoyed by successive generations of Americans? \What other government has offered to its poorest boys such opportunities to rise to the height of their capacity as are illustrated by the careers of Lin- coln and Edison? \What other government has accord- ed to all its citizens—to the least as well as to the greatest—the political power guaranteed under our American Constitution?\ And finally: \How many of these advantages are offered to the average man by the mod- ern European forms of government— with all their planned economy, their regimentation and their strong central authorities dictating to every citizen how he shall labor, how he shall live, how he shall think?\ • • • When —and only when critics can answer these questions to our satis- faction should we take their proposals seriously. When only when can prove that the men who work and earn are better off in other lands than in our own, should we consider scrapping our constitutional guaranties for their un-American theories and projects. Our heritage of freedom and oppor- tunity is far too precious to swap for a mess of foreign pottage. BEAUTY TALKS By Marjorie Duncan iesessa e Son •-•••••• BRUSHES IN BEAUTY SCHEME TN THE beauty scheme of things, A brushes play a very active part There's the hair brush, nail brush, clothes brush, tooth brush, eyebrow brush, shoe brush, bath brush and if the skin will stand it the complexion brush. These brushes are Important accessories toward good grooming and as you value personal loveliness add these beauty aids to your toiletries. And keep them busy, too. Now let us see what the requisites for the hair brush are: It should have long, flexible bristles, not too soft or the purpose (of stimulating the circu- lation through the scalp, cleaning and polishing every strand of hair) is de- feated. On the other hand, the Wines must not be too stiff or they Will irritate the scalp. As in all things the happy medium is preferable in the matter of brush bristles. Harsh bristles should be avoided— whether in a hair brush, clothes brush, nail brush, etc. Such bristles are un- kind to scalp, clothes and hands. This holds for complexion brush too. In fact, such a brush Is only for the woman with an oily or heavy type of skin. When using it, the movements should be gently upward and outward. Remember that the skin can be soaped and cleansed, without scrubbing or harsh treatment. The tooth brush we need not go into. Your dentist Is the logical one to advise the type of brush you need. But here again medium bristles are advisable for the majority of people. and remember that the bristles should be so arranged that every tooth and every part of the mouth can he thoroughly cleansed. Every dentist Will tell you that two tooth brushes are better than one—and every man, woman and child should own two and alternate them. The eyebrow brush is a small affair with one or two little rows of bristles and this important accessory is so In- expensive that I know many women who keep two or three In their dress- ing table drawer. One removes any excess powder remaining on brows and one gives the brows and lashes a silky sheen after the mascara has dried. The way to brush the brows, you know, Is first the wrong way, then into place, Lashes are brushed in semi -circular fashion, uppers upward and amend as though you would curl every little limit under and the lower lashes down- ward and amend. k1VHY Stuffy Rooms Are Stuffy and How to Relieve It Sir Leonard Hill, English physiolo- gist and writer on public health subjects, tads that the so-called \infra-red\ rays given off by dark or dull -red sources of heat cause the nostrils to contract and thus interfere with breathing. Be believes that this is the chief rea- son for the stuffiness that we expert lace in an overheated room. Says • report of Science Service (Washing- ton): \In a lecture at the recent public health congress in London, he showed that this effect is not due to a direct ection of the heat upon the nostrils. but that it Is a reflex effect from the iensory nerves of the skin. He de- scribes the particular heat -rays that eve this effect as 'nose -shutters.' Their actioa is especially marked in persons whose breathing Is already partially obstructed—those with a deflected sep- tum of the nose, for example, or a per- son suffering from catarrh, asthma, or ha -fever. \The effect can be neutralized by fanning the skin of the face with an electric fan, or by the action of cer- tain other rays, which he speaks of as 'nose -openers,' that are given off espe- cially by luminous sources of heat. They may also be absorbed by water vapor, and he suggests that this is the explanation of the efficacy of a bowl of water placed In front of a heater in relieving the stuffiness of a room.\— Literary Digest. Why Market Speculators Are \Bears\ and \Bulls\ \Bear . \ is the older term, it origt nated in England In the frenzied days of speculation In the early part of the Eighteenth century when almost everybody was investing in the South Seas Trading company. Its origin, notes G. R. Turner in the Kansas City Times, Was inspired by the old proverb relative to \selling the skin before you have caught the bear,\ and re- ferred to those \insioers\ who, after more than one billion dollars had been Invested in the gigantic enterprise, combined to unload their stock and thus brought financial ruin to the company before It hao had the oppor- tunity to fulfill its promises. \Bull an allusion to a bull's habit of tossing up things in the air, followed as a natural consequence in describing an ineedbar with tactics the opposite of those of a \bear.\ Why Bride Carries Flowers Flowers from very early days have been intimately connected with re- ligious rites, says the Montreal Herald Fruit used to be offered up in sacrifice to the old gods, and the flowers which come before the fruit were used to gar- land the necks of animals sacrificed on the ancient altars. There was a sym- bolism in all this, the flower standing for the glories of the harvest -to -be, and so in olden times the marriage festival was beautified by these emblems. Grad- ually the symbolism grew, particular flowers being given particular mean lugs. So the orange blossom as bear- ing fruit and flowers together stood for youth and maternity, the lily for pur- ity, while the rose and myrtle were ete pecially consecrated to Venus, goddess of love. Today the exact symbols are generally forgotten, but the bridal bou quet still remains. Why Scriptures Became Bible The ancient Egyptians were tire first people to make paper, their source for which was tire papyrus, a reed native to the valley of ths Nile, notes G. R. Turner In the Kansas City Times. Their method for manufacturing this form of paper was to slice and press Me pith of the papyrus into thin flat sheets that could be conveniently rolled The Greek word for this material was bibles, and because the first books were long rolled -up sheets of papyrus, biblos came to mean \a book.\ Later, with the widespread popularity of Christi anity, the word Bible was invented by English-speaking people and spelled with a capital B to designate the Scrip- tures as The Book. Why Barns Are on Stilts Some hay barns are on stilts. Many farmers rind this method of construe log storage places for hay is economi- cal and efficient. It is cheaper to build the roof and leave the sides partly exposed. The open sides permit the air to get into the pile of hay and keep It fresh. Cattle can go up to any side of the barn and have a square meal. A traveling hay fork is on a small extended part of the roof so that the hay may be distributed evenly. Why Tire Treads Wear Causes of rapid wearing away of tire treads are listed by the emergency service department of the Automobile Club of Southern California as follows: Bent axles, bent steering knuckles, wheels out of alignment, excessive use of brakes, spinning of wheels, unevenly placed tire rims, and unevenly adjusted brakes.

PUBLIC CONFIDENCE CONTINUES TO GAIN Bankers Report Nation -Wide Improvement in Attitude To- ward Banks—Educational Campaigns Play a Part NEW YORK.—Ninety-six per cent of over 300 reporting clearinghouses throughout the United States find con- crete evidence of favorable turns in public opinion regarding banks, it is shown in the results of a survey made by \Banking the monthly publication of the American Bankers Association. City and country districts in every state are represented, it is pointed out. \The outstanding conclusion Is that there has been a genuine nation-wide improvement the last few months in the attitude of the public toward its banking institutions,\ the publication says. Statistical evidence on which the hankers base their conclusions which warrant this statement is as follows: The Evidence \Flow do bankers know there has been an improvement in the public at- titude? They have certain statistical evidence. They have seen their deposits increase substantially in nearly all the cases reported, and tremendously in some cases. Many letters tell of in- creases of 100 to 300 per cent from the low point of the panic. \For another thing, they know that fewer people are using safe deposit boxes as a repository for their savings, and that, in many instances at least, postal savings are declining. \However many express the view that they could throw out the statis- tical evidence and still realize that the public is in a better mood where the banks are concerned than before. The heat evidence offered on this point, numerous bankers say, is to be found in the acceptance by the pubes of the newly instituted service charges and the reduced deposit interest rates.\ A Summary of the Returns The statement presents the following summary of the survey: \We find on breaking up the general classifications of replies to the poll that the 65 per cent of those answering with an unqualified 'yes' represent only a partial measure of the optimistic feel- ing. Adding the favorable replies in- cluded in other groups, (1. e. 'yes' with qualifications, 'no change,' and 'mixed') we find that the vote shows a definitely healthy situation In 84 per cent of the localities reporting; at least some signs of improvement in another 12 per cent; a continuance of unfavorable con- ditions in 2 per cent, and a change for the worse in another 2 per cent. It is not too much to say that this is sub- stantially 98 percent favorable.\ Reasons for Changed Public Opinion As to reasons for the changes in pub- lic opinion regarding banks reported by the clearinghouses \more than one or- ganization has a word to say about the American Bankers Association adver- tising and educational material,\ the magazine says. It mentions in addition the benefits of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp- - oration in the emergency, improvement in the general business situation, the weeding out of weak banks and the banking moratorium. \The response to the survey can be put down as encouraging and informa- tive,\ the magazine concludes. \It holds out the definite hope that with a con- tinuance of a cooperative, educational attitude on the part of the bankers the rest of the journey back to normal may well be completed in the not too dis- tant future.\ Ice C d 12 Million Square Miles When the last lee age was at its height there were 12,000,000 square miles of ice, whereas now there is about half that amount.

ODD TREE GROWING FROM SECOND STORY A stray seed of a catalpa tree, blown Into a crevice in a window of an old stone house in Winchester, Va., has turned the historic abode into an object of curiosity. Seventeen years ago the seed found lodgment under the sill of one of the second -story windows of the house which is owned by C. F. Bailey, writes a correspondent In the Philadelphia Inquirer. It found a firm footing in the crevice between the stones of the wall. Sufficient soil had been depos- ited In the crevice, so irrigated by the rains, the seed sprouted and grew fast. A house with a tree growing out of its second -story window is, indeed, a rare curiosity. Mr. Bailey prized it as such and gave the tree great care. Ills protection, however, has been repaid with base Ingratitude, for the tree, extending its powerfully spread- ing roots in search of soil and water, has now increased the original crevice, making it several inches wide in places and splitting the wall from tap to bot- tom. Eider Down Trade Aided by Protection to Ducks A new source of revenue has been the people living shores of Canada, ent Migratory Birds made available for along tit eastern owing te the convention ct. This is elder down collection. The material is now being found on the rocky shores and islands of the Gulf of St. Lawrence and in scattered breeding places farther south. The protection now afforded the ducks permits them to nest safely in those parts, according to a writer In the New York Times. Elder down is much in demand. The work of developing the elder down in- dustry was begun as a measure of pro- tection for the bird by persuading the inhabitants of the benefits to be gained by safe -guarding the ducks and adopt- ing modern methods in the collection of the down. Ills estimated that each nest yields slightly more than an ounce of down each season. The mother bird plucks the down from her breast to cover the eggs In the nest, and the practice of the col- lector is to remove only a portion of this down so as not to injure the eggs or disturb the sitting bird. Climate Affects Mules In striking contrast to the modern methods of mining gold in the quarts mines In the famous Mother Lode re - eon of California, a few mules still haul ore cars deep underground in these mines. They are retained only because the owners do not want to turn them out to die. They are so ac- ctistot»ed to the constant air tempera- ture of 67 degrees F. that, If brought up to the surface of the ground, they would be unable to endure the temper- ature changes from one season to an- other, or even from day to night. In- cidentally, some of the mules chew to- bacco, and will not work without a good part of a plug tucked under their tongues.—Boston Post. Dreaded Fire Alarm New York city's most dreaded fire alarm signal—fortunately never yet used—is \5-5-5.\ This signal, writes J. A. Twamley, Rochester, N. Y., in Collier's Weekly, which means that a fire is beyond control and buildings in its path must be dynamited, can call out as many as 13 companies of sap- pers and miners, each of which con- sists of about 30 lieutenants, who must rush to the spot from their homes or stations and undertake this dangerous work themseleve One of World's Giant Pines One giant pine In Glacier National park was growing when Columbus dis- covered America and is the largest of Rs kind in existence. The pine is on McDonald creek, on the west side of the park. Ills of the Pinus Slonticola variety. It towers 180 feet and its heavily buttressed base is 10 1 / 2 feet at its greatest diameter. Four feet above the ground Its diameter has tapered to slightly less than seven feet. Prison to Provide Warmth Rather than let the new heating sys- tem In the • prison go to waste, people of the Danish island of Sams° will make it a rule to refuse to pay fines and go to,prison instead. The old sys- tem, Installed in 1800, has been re- placed by a modern one. The citizens recently learned that the prison never I had more than two prisoners at a time and the new heating plant was really an uncalled-for luxury. Sculptor Uses Blow Torch One California sculptor works with metal instead of marble or clay and uses a blowtorch instead of a child. lie builds up grotesque figures of wrought iron, modeling the hot metal with the aid of an acetylene torch, a welding rod and a pair of pliers.—Pop- tilar Mechnnies Magazine.
