'WAT BACK WHEN by Jeanne WALT DISNEY WAS A MAIL CARRIER What are the secret ambitions of those who serve u:?. parti cularly those whose occupations are mechanical or lonesome enough to allow their minds to drift often into the realms of fantasy? Walt Disney is an example. Born in Chicago in 1901. his first job was as a mail carrier there, at the age cf sixteen. As a little boy he liked to draw, and he liked to draw animals: but the famous creator of Mickey Mouse had to make a living delivering mail. He had no chance to express his creative genius until after the World war. when he obtained a Kansas City. In his garage, he experimented with animated newsreels called "Local Happen ings," Vhich he sold to Kansas City moving picture theaters. He followed these with a series of fairy tales for local clubs and church gatherings. This modest success prompted him to try Hollywood, where he started in an unpretentious little building far from the big studios. There he created "Oswald, the Rabbit" but after making 26 sub jects. he and his tracker separat ed. The backer owned the rights to "Oswald, the Rabbit." which is still being shown in the theaters, and Disney was left without his most promising character. Out of the adversity was born "Mickey Mouse" and the "Silly Sympho nies." Today. Walt Disney employs a staff of artists to draw his char acters but he is. himself, the voice of Mickey Mouse. And his famous little character is the most commercialized of all crea tions of the fantasy." ? Copyright?WNU Service! Hyde County Negro Drowned (Continued from Page One) Cohoon. Hopkins and Moore, along with practically every oth er fisherman in Stumpy Point, went out in the sound between two and three o'clock Saturday morning, some to fish their nets, some to set out nets and some to take up nets. Around 6:30 o'clock a terrific igale came up and the small boats of the fieshermen had consider I able difficulty in getting back to the fish house here. Some had to put in at Rodar'he. on the other !side of the sound, and ride out | the blow.

Coast Guards I men from Chicamacomico and I Little Kinnakeet stations searched | for the body Saturday afternoon 1 to no avail, and on Sunday they j were assisted by numerous fish ing boats from here.

GOOD TASTE A TODAY ^ 'emily'postA World's Foremost Aufhorfty on Etiquette ? Emily Poav SHALL I WEAR A HAT WITH AFTERNOON DRESS? Dear Mrs. Post: We seldom wear formal clothes in our simple community, which fact I contend I is no reason why the ladies here may not go to evening parties ; wearing afternoon dresses and no ; hats. Don't you agree with me? There are several new residents who have been turning up on such occasions with hats on. Answer: The general rule is if you wear an afternoon dress ? meaning a dress not suitable for general wear on the street) in the evening, then you should go with out a hat. but if you are wearing a street dress, then you should wear a hat. But whether the hats you describe are bad from or not depends entirely upon their type. In other words, if they are an in door type of hat. they are quite as suitable to wear with after noon dresses as to go without. In fact, they are decidedly a fashion of the moment. HANDS IN GREETING Dear Mrs. Post: Etiquette sug gests that a man wait for a wo man to extend her hand in greet i ing first. But what is a man to do when a hostess receiving at a party for her daughter fails to put I out her hand in spite of the fact j that etiquette also says that a guest should shake hands with a hostess and her daughter in the receiving line at such a party? Answer: If she does not hold , her hand out to him. then he be haves as he was taught in dancing j school when a small boy. In other j words, he takes one step, cracks his heels and bows from the waist jand says. "How do you do, Mrs. j Brown." ' . SEEK LOCAL CUSTOM Dear Mrs. Post: Should the la dies pouring at a formal tea wear I hats? Common sense seems to be j the basis of your etiquette, and j in my humble judgment hats at i this time do not sound sensible. Answer: This question is best dec d:d by the arbitrary custom of each community. In New York, for example, a deputy hostess al ways wears a hat unless she is a j house visitor, and even in this case she is likely as not wear one. ; Neither dress or hat for a deputy i hostess should be too tailored.

E. F. Swinneychar man of the board of the First National Bank, believes. And to back up his contention, Swinney has a considerable num ber of checks which represents his winnings from friends who were sure they had a hunch on the winning team. Under the glass top of SwinneJJJ desk are a large number of these checks - all uncashed. Swinney would rather keep them to remind the losers of their bad judgment than cash them. "I have always let the other fel low pick the side he wanted to bet on" Swinney said. "I took the other side and those checks are the answer. . ? For the past 12 years I have had a friendly bet on the World Series with a friend. I always let him select the team and I have never lost so far as I can remem ber. It's a good idea to let the other fellow do the picking.

Meades refused to resign voluntarily and ques tioned Madrin's right to ask for his resignation. Madrin said his instructions had come from the Police Commission, so Meades asked the commission to give him a hearing, to which he is legally entitled. There has been some talk, that Meades was losing his job because he had been giving "tips" to P. G. Sawyer, local attorney, regarding arrests made by the police. Meades and Sawyer both vehemently de ny this accusation and Sawyer has offered to defend Meades before the Police Commission in order to clear both their names. Chief Madrin, long suspected of being jealous of Meades and afraid that the latter would sooner or later supercede him as chief, is having practically nothing to say about the matter as yet.
