Rod looked at her unbelievingly
and then bolted upright, indignation
every line of his lanky frame.
"What!" he exploded, "That
in
drip!"
...,
You haven't asked anyone else
yet, have you?" his mother asked.
"N-not exactly, but I thought I'd
«rag Elly. Do I have to. Mom?"
''No, son, you don't have to, but
it would be a very friendly gesture.
After all, the Billings are fairly new
here and Anna Marie probably ,
hasn't made many new friends."
"That I can believe," he mut
tered darkly, a mental vision of the
daughter of his father's boss in his
mind's eye.

He turned to his mother now, de
spair darkening his face. "Did Dad
tell Mr. Billings that I'd take her?"
"I'm afraid he did. Rod.

"Nuts!"
He shoved his hands
deep in his pockets and kicked at
the rug disconsolately. "Oh, all
right, she's a creep, but tell Dad
I'll give my all for the family."
9PHE next three weeks sped by at
an alarming rate. Rod, having
called Anna Marie under pressure,
reflected gloomily, as he dressed
for the dance.
A half hour later, he was ringing
the Billings' doorbell. The door
opened and a sweet-faced woman
was smiling at him.
"Oh, you must be Rod," she said, ;
vpening the door wide. "Come in, |

won't you? Anna Marie will be I
down in just a minute."
Rod stepped inside and stood
nervously waiting for Anna Marie j
to come down. He looked up quickly j
as a faint sound reached him. He j
literally stopped breathing as he be
held the vision of loveliness de
scending the steps.
Her skin was as smooth and
creamy white as the petals of a
newly-opened magnolia. Her hair,
caught up in a soft cluster of curls,
was like a sheaf of sunbeams
caught and held by the gardenias
be had sent her, under pressure
from his mother. Her blue eyes j
were like cornflowers laughing at
the dazed look on his face.
" Jaspers! a dream-puss, no lass," Rod 1
breathed. And then, "Ready for the
retrace, beautiful?'
The black lashes flew up and a |
smile curved the lovely, softly pink )
mouth.
"Natch," was the retort and, to 1
herself, Anna Marie added, "Glam- I
orpuss."

Make Artificial Pearls
Artificial pearls are usually solid
spheres of "alabaster" glass coated
with lacquers containing pearl es
sence, obtained in this country from
the scales of herring. Each scale
contains tiny crystals of "guanine,"
which appear like thin transparent
blades. When several coats of lac
quer containing the essence are
skillfully applied, the reflection of
light in various directions gives the
lustrous
associated
appearance
with real pearls.
Use of Finger Printing
New York state claims to have
made the first use of finger prints
for criminal identification in the
United States, having adopted the
system at Sing Sing prison in 1903,
two years after it was established
in England. It was not until 1924
that the federal bureau pf investiga
tion established their finger print
division. Today it has more than 101
million finger prints on file.
Mothproof the Sheep
Entomologists at the University
of Idaho have come up with another
convenience for the modern world,
one sheep owners and wool
will welcome—mothproof wool
wearers
pro
duced on the sheep. The Idaho spe
cialists have discovered that wool
from sheep dipped in a DDT solu
tion two years ago is still mothproof
in storage warehouses.

Sunflower and the War
The sunflower contributed an im
portant part in winning World War
II. Once considered a weed, the
sunflower provided much needed
oil during the past emergency. In
1903, the sunflower was decreed by
the legislature to be the official
Kansas flower. It was brought to
Kansas—the historians say—in dirt
clinging to the wheel of freight
wagons coming from the southwest
on the Santa Fe Trail. It had al
ready been discovered by the In
dians to be a source of seeds, oil
and fiber. Early settlers, who first
planted the sunflower for its beauty,
later discovered the seeds and stalk
were good for cattle feed.
Volts, Amperes and Watts
The three units, volts, amperes
and watts, measure electrical pres
sure, quantity of current, and th*
power received. It is therefore cor
rect to say that watts burn, sine*
the burn is caused by the genera
tion of heat (power) at the point of
contact. The statements that volts
cause shock and amperes kill is •
little too simplified, since both fac
tors enter into shock and electrocu
tion. The volts (pressure) combina
with the resistance of the body to
determine how much current will
flow, but the path taken through the
body has a large influence on tha
damage produced.
