Sleep! Sleep! Sleep!
Take this New Kind of Bath,
and Drift Off Into Utter Rest
When you toss and fight the bed
clothes, when one black hour
after another goes by without re
lief, it’s because your nerves are
tense and there is an excess of
fatigue wastes in your blood.
What you need, to get utter
rest and deep, peaceful sleep, is
a way to relax those nerves—and
a way to speed up the clearing of
those fatigue wastes.
Fortunately, there is now a
simple way to do it, without
drugs, without trouble, and with
out expensive preparations.
Find out for yourself now easy it
is to sleep like a baby.
You’ve always known that
Warm baths were relaxing and
had a tendency to make you
sleepy. But now, by the right
kind of warm bath you can sleep
as you have never slept before.
Just fill your tub half full of
water that is from 100 to 104 de
grees warm. Then sprinkle
through it 3 to 4 heaping table
spoons of Colman's Dry Mustard.
(Even tender skins won’t feel
this.) Soak yourself, at full length,
in this bath for 15 minutes. Then
dry yourself gently, keep warm,
and go promptly to bed.
The reason this new bath
works such magic (as proved in
scientific tests) is because the
warm water and Colman’s Dry
Mustard in combination have
wonderful drawing power. They
materially increase the flow of
your blood, all over your body,
toward the surface of your skin.
. This speeds up the elimination of
the fatigue wastes, relaxes your
muscles and overstrung nerves,
and sends you to bed ready for
that dreamless peace Nature in
tended your nights to be.
TRY IT TONIGHT. There is prob
ably a tin of Colman’s Dry Mus
tard in your pantry. If not, your
grocer has it. Take this Colman’s
bath regularly and forget that
you ever knew those nightmares
of tossing which made you dread
the nights.

Chest Emblem Artists
Advised to Look to
Jimmy for Inspiration
Contestants for $175
5n Prizes Must Submit
Entries by April 30
Artists and would-be artists who
are considering entering the $175
prize contest for design of an official
Community Chest emblem were
asked today by Chest officials to get
acquainted with Jimmy.
The tale of Jimmy, they said, may
give a bit of inspiration to competi
tors seeking material to symbolize
Community Chest service to the city.
Jimmy took his first step yester
day at the Washington Home for
Foundlings. That’s news for several
reasons. For one thing, he is nearly
3 years old. He was a sick baby
about a year ago, and nearly lost
his life under the triple threat
of asthma, undernourishment and
He spent six months at the
Children’s Country Home, an agency
of the Community Chest, where he
made steady progress toward health.
Mother Stricken.
* Then, just as he might have been
ready to go back to the little base
ment flat which is his home, his
mother became ill and was taken to
the hospital.
So Jimmy, who was developing the
bloom of health by then, has come
to live at the Home for Foundlings,
also a Chest unit, until his mother
gets well enough to care for him in
his own home. Perhaps it will hasten
her recovery to hear that the little
son she was afraid would never walk
will be able to run to meet her.
This story is typical of such aid
provided for infants by these two
agencies and St. Ann’s Infant
Asylum. Babies also are given the
service of various Chest nursery
schools through the city.
Chest officials said that a simple
design based on service to Washing
ton children, like service to other
portions of the community, might
well form the basis of a winning
Chest insignia.
$100 to Winner.
A prize of $100 will be given to the
artist or art student who designs the
winning emblem, $50 for second
place and $25 for third. The new
emblem will be used on Chest sta
tionary and for other purposes.
The contest, opened yesterday, will
close April 30. Judges will include
directors of two of Washington's art
galleries—C. Powell Minnigerode of
the Corcoran Gallery and David Pin
ley of the National Gallery. Artists
and Chest representatives will com
pose the rest of the judging com
mittee, whose decision will be final.
Instructions for Competition.
Here are instructions for com
All entries must be brought or
mailed to The Evening Star, Elev

contestant’s name, address, tele

Designs may be executed in black
or white or not more than two col
ors. Ink, charcoal, crayon, water

Of 'Fire Hazards'
Association Names

On Criticized Houses
Condemnation of several decrepit
houses and so-called “shacks” in the
Lincoln Park area as fire hazards
was urged last night by members
of the Lincoln Park Citizens’ Asso
ciation, who termed the situation as
"a retarder in the development of
Southeast Washington and an eye
sore to persons who would travel
through that section to the pro
posed District stadium and National
Guard armory at the end of East
Capitol street.”
Pointing to the recent O street
apartment house fire, the members
asked that no further repairs be
made on any of the Houses, the
majority of which are located in
the area between Fourteenth and
East Capitol streets to South Caro
lina avenue to Sixteenth street S.E.
and also in the vicinity of Twelfth
and B streets N.E.

Citizens’ Association in urging an
increase from 400 to 600 feet in the
distance between liquor stores and
churches and schools was adopted
by the association.
The Legislative Committee of the
association was instructed to inves
tigate the podiatry bill now before

Opposition to the closing of the
Northeast Boys’ Club and the sell
ing of the property to build a new

tion to help restore the club in a

Nature’s Children
European Larch
, (Larix europaea)
While this is not an important
member of the Larch family, it is
one of the oldest cultivated orna
mental evergreens. This is a dis
tinction, because there are several
species. The genus is native
throughout the colder sections of
Europe, Asia and America.
There is no question about this
larch being ornamental. It 1s happy
in environments where the Ameri
can larch or tamarack would become
too discouraged to live.
The distinction of the genus Larix
is in its deciduous habits. There is
only one other conifer that sheds its
leaves in the autumn. Then the
habit of growing the leaves in
It Is said that Raphael painted
many of his first pictures on larch
boards, and other painters have
used th’.s wood for a like purpose.
Tables and fancy cabinets were at
one time made of larch wood but
the price was too high for the aver
age purse to stand, until finally the
larch has reached its place of great
est service to mankind as a tree for
landscaping by reason of its beauty
of form and color.

clusters In fasicles on short lateral
spurs Is one of the finest points to
check for identification. You will
find only the scattered leaves on the
terminal shoots.
All members of the family are
pyramidal in habit with a few hori
zontal branches. The leaves have a
delicate beauty all their own, and
in the spring you will be delighted
with their almost feathery expres
sion. They are an exquisite fairy
green in color and seem too fragile
for the winds that sweep through
the branches. But they become more
sturdy each day and turn a deeper
and richer hue. By tutumn they
have faded some and gradually be
come a lovely yellow before they
drop to the ground. Here they make
a deep carpet of needles, a colorful
spot until frost and rains turn them
This larch is a rapid grower, and
where conditions are pleasing it be
comes a very large, impressive tree.
The branches grow close to the
ground with a skyward tilt which is
methodical in the general effect of
the trim and well-groomed appear
ance of the tree.
Larch wood is very durable, heavy
and hard. While it is rich in resin,
it does not ignite readily. The wood
does not splinter easily and for this
reason was once in great demand
for building of battleships. In Eu
rope, this species of larch was se
lected for the timbers in the French
castles. Even today, when the stone
foundations of these ancient dwell
ings have crumbled, the larch tim
bers are sound and in perfect con
Larches may be easily grown from
seed and they stand transplanting
well. Even well-grown trees do not
seem to be disturbed about being
moved for many miles from their
former home. They are considered
fine trees for windbreaks and shelter
belts. They make excellent tele
graph poles because they are
straight and free from large knots.
