Walls of Small Halls and Rooms - BY LYDIA LE BARON WALKER AN INTERESTING WALL TREATMENT OF A SMALL HALL. WALL decorations for small halls and tiny rooms should be those which do not re quire space to make them showr off to advantage. They should be those which can be scrutinized at close range and stand the test. They need not necessarily be little and they certainly should not be insignificant. The important thing is that they com bine decoration and that desire to study them which makes their close prox imity welcome. The wall decorations which are par ticularly felicitous in cramped quarters comprise textiles, embroidered wall hangings, fine etchings hundreds of dif ferent artists and engravers and print ers' works and wood cuts allied with these prints. Wall shelves also come under the classification of suitable wall decorations for small quarters. Shelves come in endless variety. They may be of wood or metal. Wrought iron and wood in straight lines of solid colors or in tricately carved Chinese designs are fa vored. In short, the variety of things well adapted to these wall decorations is innumerable. To pick out the kind best for the particular wall requires the home decorator's careful consideration. Color may or may not be needed in the small hall. If not. etchings and black and white prints and uncolored woodcuts are recommended. Choose small-framed pictures and group them if needed to ornament a large blank wall space. There may be more than one group required. If so, have each group separate and distinct from an other. A mirror, carefully chosen to suit the THE STAR’S DAILY PATTERN SERVICE 259/ ^ For the small boy of the family here's a fetching little model In a tubbable suit. It is navy blue cotton broadcloth.

When color is lacking, there can be the right type of wall decoraiton. A gay hanging can give it, but the textile or embroidery should not be so im pressive that it calls for wider vistas. The distribution of color should be lather even in the wall hanging, there by courting study of detail instead of being imposing. Colored prints and water colors and oil paintings that are done in detail and which are small, including the frames, supply color in most pleasing way. A bracket wall shelf against a plain textile wall hanging offers an op portunity for notes of color in orna ments put upon the shelves, as well as in the textile itself. (Copyright, 1932.) Handwriting What It May Reveal. BY MILDRED MOCKABEE. I THIS writing is so even that an entire page of it gives almost the same impression as print. This regularity is probably re flected in the life of the writer, making of her a very exact and de pendable person. The only conflicting indication is the t-bar which indicates a certain degree of impatience and hurry. This does not appear pro nounced enough, however, to overcome the former characteristic. The very heavy i-dot is worthy of notice as it usually denotes a very forceful and positive character. She probably has very definite ideas about things. This may at times antagonize her acquaintances, but, as they know her better, they will, perhaps, realize that she has no intention of hurting them. The very rounded, curved letter forms suggest that she, perhaps, lacks ex perience. As she grows older and be comes more accustomed to dealing with people, she will probably learn how to handle individuals, to sway them to her side rather than to create any hard feelings. The almost printed form of the “s" is an indication of culture and fastid iousness. She possibly gives much thought to her choice of clothes, being at all times immaculately and tastefully gowned. Her home, also, will probably reflect this natural disposition, show ing clever arrangement of well selected furnishings. She should be very careful about her choice of occupation. Routine work might prove deadly to her, stifling her natural expression and giving no op portunity for her to further her own ideas. Her seemingly fertile brain should be allowed every chance to func tion in a way that should perhaps be stow glory and fame upon her. note—Analysis of handwriting is not an exact science, according to world in i estigators. but all agree it is interesting and lots of fun. The Star presents the above feature in that spirit. If you wish to have your writing analyzed, send a sample to Miss Mocka 'ee. care of The Star, along with a 2-cent stamp. It will be either inter preted in this column or you will receive a handwriting analysis chart which you will find an interesting study. Whole-Wheat Bread.

She had slept most of her life away so far, but was beginning to show signs of becoming an indi vidual. She cocked an eye at her brother Peter, kicked a fat leg when having her bath and blinked at the shaded light in the nursery. Nancy and the doctor had checked her carefully every two weeks. She had made' normal gain in weight, about 4 pounds. She had weighed 8 pounds when born and now weighed almost 12. The doctor had advised Nancy to give her a spoonful of strained orange juice, starting in the sixth week. He suggested that the juice be made lukewarm, since that was the tempera ture of all the milk and water she had received thus far. He said that babies developed food dislikes occasionally because of the dif ference in temperature between the nor mal food and additional liquids given. Because she was a Winter baby, he advised the addition of a few drops of cod liver oil daily. Nancy gave this while the baby was having her bath and thus avoided cod liver oil spots on dresses, shirts or kimonos. Any stray drops were washed away in the water. Susan was getting about eight drops of oil a day. Nancy was careful to wipe off the neck of the bottle before inserting stopper. This prevented the oil left on neck of bottle from getting ran cid Every7 day, rain or shine. Susan slept out of doors in her pram. She was put into a sleeping bag of wool, which was snuggled down under covers in the car riage. She was just as warm as toast. Had she not been. Nancy w7ould have discontinued the outdoor sleeping. A chilled child cannot be a healthy one. A Sermon for Today BY REV. JOHN R. GUNN. --—— ‘ Keep the Home Fires Burning.” “There was a fire on the hearth.”— Jeremiah, xxxvi.22. A prize was offered some while ago by an English magazine for the best definition of "home,” and from the thousands submitted, five were selected as deserving special mention. They were: Home—a world of strife shut out and a world of love shut in”; "home—the place where the great are small and the small are great"; “home —the place where we grumble the most and are treated the best”; “home —the only place where the faults and failings of humanity are covered with the sweet mantle of charity”; “home— the father’s kingdom, the mother’s world, the children’s paradise.” These definitions are very sugges tive as to what the home ought to be and ought not to be; and they might well be pondered by American readers. The object of the English magazine was to stimulate a revival of interest in the home and home life. We need something to stimulate such a revival in America. We hear from many quar ters lamentations over the decline of the American home. In some instances these lamentations may picture the situation worse than it is; but I think we all realize that changing conditions are seriously affecting the home life of the Nation, Certainly there is great need for a revaluing of the home, and for a new' emphasis upon its place in relation to our physical, social, educa tional and spiritual life. In the past the home has been re garded as the very heart of our Ameri can civilization: it has been looked to as the Nation’s chief hope. When Mr. Henry w Grady was seriously con cerned about the reconstruction of the South, in turn he went to the legisla tive bodies of the State and Nation, to ti e schools of the land and to the Sunday schools, looking for the safe guard of the future. But he found It in South Georgia, when he spent the night with a piney-woods farmer. Be fore retiring the mother read from the family Bible, the sacred page illumi nated by the flames of the pine knots on the open hearth The father knelt and prayed for his family, calling each of his five children by name, asking God to make his sons pure and manly, his daughters modest and womanly. Ttiere, said Mr. Grady, is the hope of the land. "There was a fire on the hearth.” Let us never permit that fire to go out. J£an7 ,thm8s we may do to safeguard the future of our country, but the most important thing of all is to "Keep the Home Fil es Burning ” Pineapple-Cabbage Salad. Shred some cabbage and mix with pieces cut from broken slices of pine apple drained from the juice and salad dressing.

The first thing she said to the doctor was^ "Don t send for my son; he hunts all of November and I don’t want to spoil his vacation.” When I heard about this. I thought there is nothing greater in this world than having a mother like that. She raises up the sort of sons who make men. The one piece of advice that I give my boys is this: Remember, it is up to you to give your chil dren the right kind of mother.—A. P. B Answer—Right you are. Mr. A. P. B., and. considering that the most important thing in the world to every man who has children is the way they turn out, it is amazing how little thought and Consideration men give to the kind of mother a girl will make. \/f EN know that as the mother is, the children are, ninety-nine times iVl out of a hundred, for in her hands lies the molding of their charac ters. The behaviorists tell us that by the time a child is 3 years old its life pattern is set and that not a great deal can be done after that to change it Certainly our own experience bears this out, for every one of us know that in the crisis of our lives we are not guided by our reason or our philosophy or by the logic of the situation. We are motivated by the things that we learned at our mother’s knees and by the principles she instilled in us in our cradles. All through life we stand or fall according to whether she bred strength or weakness in us. We choose the right or the wrong as she taught us honor and honesty or lax principles. We are masters of our passions, or we yield to them, as she formed in us the habit of self-control or self-indulgence. We are industrious or loafers. We shut our teeth and carry on or throw up our hands and quit when the sledding becomes hard, according to whether she gave us the grit to enable us to stand punish ment or the yellow streak that makes us slackers. — IT IS significant that every great man has had a great mother, a mother of fine mentality, of strong character and of indomitable will. I can not now recall a single man who has ever made his mark in the world who had a weak, silly, frivolous mother. Doubtless children inherit no more from their mothers than they do from their fathers, but it is far more important what kind of mother they have than what kind of father they have. For their mothers are with them far more in their plastic years than their fathers are, and it is the mother who lights the fires of ambition in their souls, who inspires them to do and dare. It is the mother who keeps them cheered up when their hope fails who braces up their weak spine wdth her own backbone and whose ambitions for them and belief in them actually forces them to make good. All men know these things, but, strangely enough, when a man picks out a wife he doesn’t consider whether he is bringing a blessing or a curse down on his children’s heads. He selects a wife because she Is pretty, because she somehow makes an appeal to him, because she is a good dancer or a good cook or a good talker, but he doesn’t consider what sort of inheritance she is going to give his children, what sort of brains is going to bestow' upon them or w'hat sort of prlnicples she is going to teach them. He doesn't consider what qualifications she has for motherhood, yet that is the most important thing he could consider. DOROTHY DIX.

CHILDREN BY LILLIAN COX ATHEY. Illustrations by Mary Foley. THE COTTON PLANT. THE Egyptians traded with India for cotton about 150 B.C. There must have been trouble about the cotton, even in those days, and in India there was a law’ concerning it in 800 B.C. In the Bible and many writings there are nu merous references to cotton and also to fine raiment made of the cotton. After the Civil War, when our cot ton fields were laid bare, cotton was bought from Egypt and from that time on the exporting of cotton became very important to Egypt. In 1666 the first report w’as made about cotton by the American Colonies. Mexicans have long known the value of it as an in dustry. In 1793 Eli Whitney invented the cotton gin and from that time on cot ton was placed on a profitable basis. Many slaves were used to plant and gather the crop and soon the bare fields were snowy white “ ’way down South in the land of cotton.” Today, as you go through the South, you can still hear the song of the pickers. And the great bales in the fields are seen as you ride through the cotton belt. The plant has a taproot which reaches deep into the soil for moisture. cotton PLANT the branches spread and are irregular, the bark is reddish brown and the wood white. The leaves are alternate with long stalk stems (petioles) and the upper ones are deeply cut, having from three to nine lobes. A most un usual thing about the cotton leaves is that they have tiny pits along the ribs and these are nectar glands. At first it was thought that the nectar was for bees, ants and wasps, which, in return for the delectable drinlj, would consume or take away the de termined little caterpillars or the boll weevil eggs. This has not proven true, however. The plants as buds are rolled tight like an umbrella. When they open up they have five large petals. They time their debut for the early morning, dressed in creamy white or pale yel low'. with a purplish base. By noon they have changed to a dainty pink, the next day a deep purplish red. The nectar glands are at the base of the calyx and only the long-tongued bees, butterflies and moths can thrust their suctionlike tubes between the bases to reach the sweet. When the blossoms are two davs old they drop. The young cotton bolls are covered with fringed bracts, which remain at tached to the ripened pod. The boll becomes long, oval-shaped and pointed, a pretty green on the outside covered with tiny pin-point pits. Prom the tips of the boll are five creases and this indicates where the boll will open. The seeds are fastened by their points to the edge of the inner partition and are wrapped in the young cotton, which is now a soft, stringy mass. When the boll opens the cotton puffs out; it is very fluffv, easily torn from the boll and scattered by the wind. The boll, when ripe, is brown and shriveled on the outside. The boll weevil is the only insect to have a monument erected in his honor and yet be alive to enjoy the distinc tion. The whole crop was totally de stroyed by the boll weevil and the farmers got together and grew another type of crop, which was so abundant that they were delighted. The bills were paid and a fitting reminder was erected to commemorate the event. (Copyright. 1932.) Everyday Psychology BY DR. JESSE W. SPROWLS. Adjustment. What does adjustment mean? In the first place it means the ability to sense—i. e., to see, hear, feel, taste and smell what is going on. This in psychological terms is called sensation. It's the first big component of the world of mind. The next big step is the development of ways and means for conserving sen sation for future use. Psychologists call this memory. Just how memory may be accounted for is something of a problem yet. But memory is a fact; at least it is a logical name for something that gets results. The third and most important step in the scheme of making adjustments came in when living things began to work their memories over into new forms, when they began to prepare for situations before they appeared. Psy chologists call this creative ability imagination. Sensation, memory and imagination. These are the three big things in the world of mind. Man, it appears, has made more progress in this respect than any other living thing, although there are some scientists who hold that man can still go to the ant and the bee for valuable instruction in the art of "ad justing.” (Copyright. 1932.) --m - .. Pressed Cheese Salad. To one cupful of grated cheese add half a cupful of chopped nuts, half a cupful of chopped pimento, half a cupful of chopped ripe olives, half a cupful of seedless raisins which have gecn washed, drained, and cut, one fourth teaspoonful each of salt and paprika, and a dash of Tabasco sauce. To the above add half a cupful of cream and two tablespoonfuls of may onnaise. If the cheese Is dry, more cream will be required. If desired, more cheese and less of the other in gredients may be used. Press into individual molds, or into an ice box cooky mold. Chill for two hours In the refrigerator, then un mold, or slip out of the cooky mold, and slice. On a bed of lettuce, place some sliced tomatoes, with a slice of pressed cheese on each, then a rosette of may onnaise forced through a pastry tube. -ar Treatment of Woolen Dresses BY MARY MARSHALL. THE housewife who makes out her menus and plans her work ahead of time always manages to have more time to herself than the one who worries along in a sort of hand-to-mouth fashion— never having much of an idea of what she is going to do until the time comes to do it. And so any woman—whether she stays at home or goes to work in an office—always manages to look a lot better dressed if she has a well-formed plan of what she is going to wear made out some time in advance. It’s a very good plan to take time once a week to see that you have things enough in good condition to last for the next six or seven days. If you are a busy business woman, you will prob ably find it most convenient to do this >ome time between Saturday closing time and Monday morning. See that you are prepared for vari ous sorts of weather. See that you have clean blouses to wear with your suit, a silk dress in spotless condition to wear under your coat on a day that Is not very cold and a wool dress look ing as fresh as the day it was brand new to wear if the day is very cold. It ought not to be too difficult to Iceep your woolen dresses in ship-shape as long as the Winter lasts. There are so many good cleaning liquids that you may use to take out chance spots, and pressing a dress with a hot iron over a damp cloth takes only a short time. And then to add that final touch of freshness be sure that you have enough collars and cuffs or simple accessory collars to make it possible to wear a fresh one every day or two. If you have a woolen dress that lacks such accessories, by all means make some. The shops are full of charming collars either with or without cuffs made from lace, washable satin, silk or cotton pique or all-over embroidery. / Today’s sketch shows one that you will have no trouble in copying. It is a bias band of material about 2 inches wide that goes around the neck. One end spreads out into a decorative little tab that is pulled through a slit at the front of the dress. BEDTIME STORIES W. Burgess. Yowler Takes a Chance. He foolish is who doth refuse To take a chance with nauaht to lose. —Yowler the Bobcat. Yowler the Bobcat was desperate. Yes, sir, he was desperate. The deep snow had made hunting as hard for him as for Reddy Fox. It had made it even harder, for Reddy could hunt Mice on the Green Meadows and prowl along the Big River for what he might pick up there, while Yowler did not dare leave the Green Forest and the Old Pasture. As long as the snow remained soft he could do no hunting. He simply had to remain at home and grow hun grier and hungrier. At last there was a crust that would bear his weight, and by day as well as night Yowler stole softly like living shadow through the Green Forest and among the bushes of the Old Pasture, thankful for a careless Mouse now and then, but still with a gnawing hunger making him more and more desperate. Several times he stole over to the yard of Lightfoot the Deer, and hidden under snow-weighted hemlock boughs, with fierce, hungry eyes, watched Light foot and Mrs. Lightfoot, and thought what a splendid feast one of them would make for him, and wished they MENU FOR A DAY.

But each time he stole away as softly and stealthily as he had come. Now, Yowler the Bobcat is naturally a coward. He can fight and will fight when cornered, but he is sneak rather than bold, and he seldom attacks any one who can put up a fight. So it was not until he became desperate that he even seriously thought of attacking the Lightfoots. However, the time came when he made up his mind to take the chance. "I have nothing to lose and a lot to gain,” thought he. "I can always get away if I don’t succeed, and if I do suc ceed I won’t go hungry for a long time. It is w’orth the chance, especially now that Lightfoot has lost his antlers.” So Yowler hid close by’ the yard of Lightfoot the Deer and watched and waited until at last Mrs. Lightfoot came along alone. Lightfoot was nowhere in sight. This w’as as Yowler wanted it. Watching his chance he made a swift leap for the shoulders of Mrs. Lightfoot. LIGHTFOOT WAS NOWHERE IN SIGHT. From there he could get at her throat. At the same Instant Mrs. Lightfoot plunged forward. Perhaps she had heard some faint sound, or perhaps her keen nose had caught the scent of Yowler. The result was that Yowler landed far back. He dug his claws in to hold on as Mrs. Lightfoot, with a sharp whistle of fright, plunged this way and that. There was an answering whistle and Lightfoot came plunging along one of the paths, his usually soft eyes blazing with anger. There was nothing timid in the appearance of lightfoot then, even If he did not have his antlers. Yowler lost his hold and dropped to the path and in an instant Lightfoot reared and brought his sharp hoofs down. It was only a glancing blow, but it hurt. Ye3, sir, it hurt. With a snarl of rage and pain Yowler turned to face Light foot, ears laid back, short tail twitching, teeth showing between lips drawn back, his feet gathered under him for a spring at Lightfoot's throat. Even as he jumped Lightfoot reared and struck, and again it hurt. Mean while Mrs. Lightfoot came charging from the other direction. Two against one were odds he couldn’t face, and with a yell of rage and disappointment Yowler sprang out of the path, up on the crust and slunk away. Lightfoot made two plunges after him, but realiz ing his helplessness in the deep snow, stopped, snorting and whistling, the hair on his back and neck standing erect, and his big eyes still blazing with anger. Yowler continued to slink away. Later he caught a Rabbit and this made him feel better. "If I hadn’t been almost crazy with hunger I would have known better than to take that chance," he muttered. ‘‘My, but those hoofs of Lightfoot’s are sharp!” He licked the wounds made by those hoofs. Then he grinned rather sheepishly. “I hope," thought he, ‘‘that no one saw me make that mistake,” (Copyright. 1932.) SCREEN ODDITIES BY CAPT. ROSCOE FAUCETT.
