But con sider the discouragement and heartchcs of the boy too poor for an adequate education, too poor for nourishing food or decent clothing, too poor to meet people with influence. That such boys, possessing only courage, ambition and brains, can still rise in Amer ica is this country's strongest de fense against fascism and com munism. William Fox was born in Tul chva. Hungary, son of a small shop-keeper who extracted teeth | as a side-line. The family moved ! to America when William was nine months old. and settled in an I East Bide tenement district of ' New York city. His first job was at the age of nine, when his fath er. who was out of work, made ? stove blacking in their small I tenement and William peddled it from door to door in the neigh i borhood. Later he sold candy iozengers at the Third Street dock and at Central Park on Sundays. At the age of fourteen, he was forced by poverty to quit school. He obtained a job in a clothing firm and rose to be foreman in charge of lining cutting, at the magnificent salary of 58 per week. To augment his earnings, he bought umbrellas and peddled them in front of theatres on many night. With SI.GOO savings ac j cumulated through many priva tions. he started a cloth examin ! mg and shrinking business, when | he was twenty-one. and at the end jof the second year invested his ! profits in a nickelodeon or five |ccnt motion picture house. Twen ty-five years later he headed the j great $200,000,000 corporation [which bore his name, including a picture producing company, dis tributing agencies, and thousands of theaters throughout the United States. Who knows for what high posi tion that peddler who calls at your door may be preparing. William Fox rose from the same start to be a multi-millionaire, and it can still be done. BLACK HILL STORY TOLD OF GOLDEN BULLETS' USE St. Paul. (U.R) ? Back in the boom days of the gold rush, at least one of the lucky prospectors was so rich with gold that he used the precious metal to make bullets when he ran short of lead. This is the story of Carl Worm. | bootmaker who roamed the Black Hills of the Dakotas when the! gold rush was at its height. Worm says he owns the gun used by the prospector?known to the Indians as "Doc Saumico." The gun was charged with pow der before the lead slug was in- j serted. It still is servicable. HORSE MARINES NEVER NOVELTY, OFFICERS AVER San Francisco, (U.R)Officers of the Marine corps insist that old saw about "Captain Jinks of the Horse Marines" is not such an imaginary joke as many people might think, especially as regards the "Horse Marines." The latter they declare, are and have been very much of a reality in the his tory of the corps. At present, it is said, there is a troop of American "Horse Ma rines" at Peiping, China which for the past 25 years have been mounting their saddles every day, patroling outlying districts of the city and reporting to the Ameri can embassy there. The corps was organized in 1912 during the revolutionery period and since then repeatedly has demonstrated its valor and use fulness in the various disturb ances in the former Chinese cap ital. Eve n the advent of the motor age has not proved the marines would be more useful in cars tnah on horseback. However. Peiping's "marine mount ies" are declared to be far from unusual in the history of the corps. Mounted marines have served in Cuba. Haiti. San Do mingo and Mexico. During their comparatively recent occupation of Nicaragua, the marines were obliged to use mounts to cover vast stretches of territory. Mounted marines are also sta tioned at Hawthorne. Nov.. where a naval ammunition depot covers, more than 200 square miles. American mounted marines in 1903 made a long trip to pay an official visit to Kir.g Menelik of Ehiopia. The Peiping patrol, however, is the longest organized unit or "Horse Marines" that the corps has ever had. NORTH DAKOTA REPORTS VAST HORDE OF DUCKS Forham, N. D? Aug. 1.?(U.R)? Ducks arc nesting in the south eastern section of North Dakota in the greatest numbers in 20 years. Sargent and Richland coun ty sportsmen report. Conservation experts and the sportsmen forecast revival of a nearly lost sport?duck hunting? this fall. George Scoville of Forman, chairman of the Sargent county planning board and 'an ardent sportsman, said he has observed upward of 40 species of ducks in the revived Tewaukon lake string area this year. "I have never seen so many since 1916," he said. Explanation offered is that the birds in their northern flight this spring came through eastern North Dakota rather than farther west?as is their custom, because of the quantity of water in the Red River area and the area im mediately adjoining. In South Dakota a duck crop of approximately 1,000.000 will be produced this year, according to O. H. Johnson, director of the state game and fish department. Johnson based his prediction on figures collected from deputy game wardens who have made a system atic count of male ducks on the sloughs, marshes, lakes and streams in their respective terri tories. Each male is considered as i representing a nesting female.

I know, having eturned recently to Hollywood fter a month in Europe, Don't misunderstand me. I en oyed Europe. But I feel that the 'rench, a home loving people, ave the right idea. They think here is no place in the world ike La Belle France. Right now, he United States suits me. At a cafe in Cannes, I talked nth an English-speaking waiter. "Aren't you interested in seeing imerica?" I asked. "What for?" he wanted to mow. That stumped me. Back in quiet, peaceful Holly /ood, wearing my favorite loung ng pajamas, I can see his point if view. Vacations, it would seem, are lesigned to give the vacationist in increased appreciation of lome and country. On the day I arrived in Holly vood, I had a call from MetTo >oldwyn-Mayer. "You have been assigned the ole of the queen in 'Rosalie'," I vas told, "and we would like you to come in tomorrow for a COS* tume fitting." Costume fittings are my pet abomination. But somehow, the idea of a costume was delightful. I find that I am looking forward to working again with renewed en thusiasm. All I need now is an other week to fully recuperate from my trip. I have resolved, for the twen tieth year. I believe it is, to vaca tion at home next year. There is no place like home. I am reminded that someone told me Egypt is lovely in the spring, but you must get your reservations in early. Sounds in teresting, the Nile, the pyramids, mummies and all that. I must keep it in mind. Isn't that just like a woman? MINNESOTA PIKE GET UNIVERSIAY METAL"DEGREES" Duluth, Minn., (U.R)?Swimming around somewhere! in Northern Minnesota lakes are 3,000 wall eye pikes possessing "degrees" from the University of Minnesota. Tiic fish are wearing tin. water proof plates, showing they at tended the university's school for fish, conducted recently near Lake Winnibigoshish. And the fish didn't learn a thing?not even how not to get caught, but they are expected to teach naturalists how far pike travel and disclose their ultimate rate. Prof. Samuel C. Eddy, aided by the state game and fish division locked narrow metal strips, stamp ed "U. of Minn." to the jaws of 3,000 pike. Anglers catching the fish so marked are asked to com municate with Eddy. Female fish were excluded from the school. Males were lured to class and tagged. I MAKE YOURSELF RIGHT AT HOME!
