CHILDREN’S STORY —By THORNTON VV. BURGESS JERRY MUSKRAT’S BUSY DAYS BEGIN JERRY MUSKRAT had had an easy summer There had been plenty t< eat and little to do. He hao loafed played, made social vis its and had a good time generally. There had been no good reason why be shouldn't. But now It was time to think of ttie corning winter and ; prepare for it. and Jerry was ready ! to work. There isn't a lazy bone In Jerry Muskrat's stout little body i Now that he had decided where he would build his new house. Jerry got to work without waste of time. His busy days had begun Berlin (Ml I should have said his busy nights had begun for Jerry, like his big cousin. Baddy the Beaver, pre fers to woafc at night.

Now and then, a cat tail would fall and disappear, and In places the water would bubble and boil very hard, showing that some thing was going on beneath. Then after a little Jerry would climb out on the Big Rock to rest and get his breath, lou know It Isn't an eas. matter to hold your breath and work, too, and this is what Jerry had to do. At first only that part of the Smil Ing 800 l beyond the Big Rock was muddy, but gradually the muddy circle grew wider and wider until it began to look as if the whole Smiling 800 l would l>e made muddy an' unpleasant. Billy Mink and Little Joe Otter came down from the Laughing Brook to the Smiling 8001, took one look at It and promptly turned back. They were cross about It, too. “No use to try to fish there now." grumbled Billy Mink. “That's Jerry ItPAIPA KNOWS "Bop. what Is sewing?" “Obsolete art as far as women are concerned.” ©. 1933 Bell Syndicate.—WNU Service.

"I say that no one has any right to let his private affairs interfere with ttie affairs of his neighbors. If he must build a house why doesn't he do it without cheating us out of a day’s fishing?" "Let’s go down and tell him what we think of him.” proposed Billy Mink. “Wate-’s too dirty. I can give him a piece of my mini later. The Bullish News best thing for us to do is to keep away from the Smiling 800 l for a few days.” grumbled Little Joe Ot ter. But Jerry Muskrat knew nothing about the grumbling of his neigh bors. I suspect It would have made no difference if he had. Jerry had t- - much to do to worry about the feelings of his neighbors. They would have to stand the muddy wa ter until he got the foundations of his house laid, and to lay these he had to dig. Digging under the wa ter made the water muddy, and there was no help for it. If he could stand it they could. So Jerry dug and came up to rest an went down to dig agaiu and was happy, for to be usefully busy Is to be happy, ©. 1933. byT. W.

A little with plenty of fresh vegetables will sup ply all the food value one needs for the warm days. If there is a hit of chicken, veal steak or even beef steak, it will make a good meal combined in a chop suey, in this way: Cut up a bunch of celery Into small pieces and cook it with an ouion or as one’s taste dictates. Add a little boiling water with the finely cut cooked meat, a few fresh cooked green beans and simmer until all are nicely seasoned and the onion well cooked. Celery is better served in this dish not soft, but crisp and transparent. When serving place on a platter with a border of hot cooked seasoned rice. Use a dash of chop suey sauce before taking to the table. Short Bread Cakes. When you wish to serve some thing out of the ordinary try these: Line patty pans with short bread pastry, sometimes called scotch shortbread. Fill the shells with any kind of cake batter—sponge or cup cake is preferred. Bake and re move carefully from the pans and cool. Scoop out a little from the center of the cakes and ice all over with icing, sprinkle with shredded coconut or shredded almonds and brown. When cool fill the centers with flavored whipped cream and pipe a border around the edges Fresh berries with the cream will add another variation. ffi by Western Newspaper Union.

Graphic Golf IMAGIoimS POU. 04 BELL RQPfc J WITMIETTMANO, uslPS\ J I Stazt OOhnSwinS wrrw SENSE ' or PULL IN L=rT WAND. z( J <sl USING THE LEFT ARM HPO INSURE a full use of the left arm in the downswing it Is well to start dowr by pulling with the left hand. Golfers unaware of the importance of the left hand have been amazed at the beneficial re sults obtained by this simple ad vice. The action is not dissimilar at the start to the pulling of a hell cord over one's right shoulder. This idea applied imaginatively as the player begins the swing often enables one to start the downswing correctly. Bobby Jones has stated that he plays well when he has the feeling that he is pulling against something in the first part of the downswing. It is an apparent pull of the left arm from the shoulder, th; right hand being kept out of the stroke at this time. This feeling is obviously a tug against the tension of his own muscles originated by the swinging effort. ©. 1933. Bell Syndicate. WNU Service.

With ev’ry breath you’re breathing half a breath and half a pray’r; You hurry to the window ev'ry car you iiear below— It may be it’s the doctor, though he left an hour ago. You know you must be hopeful, but you're worried through and through; You wish that there was something, only something you could do; The others seem so noisy lthough they’re quiet as a mouse). But you mustn’t get them crying when there’s sickness in the house. We're mighty Independent when they all are well and strong, And life’s a simple matter running steadily along. Were planning for the future, for the daughter, for the son. And how we’ll spend the summer when the wintertime Is done. Then, like a cloud at noontime, like a shadow on the grass. Death’s angel hovers over little lad or little lass. You try so hard to hide it, keep the worry from your sac But you’re feeling mighty helpless when there's sickness in the place. And then to things forgotten in anx iety we turn. For often by affliction Is the only way we learn: We know the need of something, and of Someone who will hear And help us bear the burden of un certainty and fear. We pray some strength from heaven, that we almost had forgot. Will drive the somber angel from beside the little cot. Oh, we’re mighty independent when the world Is tine and fair— But we want the Great Physician when there's sickness any where. ©. 1933. Douglas Malloch. —WNU Service.

Navy Blue Ensemble Direct from Paris comes this navy bine ensemble with blue and white collar and three-quarter sleeves trimmed la the same effect Cunning Summer Clothes for Tots O By CHERIE NICHOLAS SUCH a splurge as stripes and plaids are making in fashion land this summer, specially in the children’s realm where ginghams ga lore and dimities and linens and other popular materials for little folks’ clothes are simply running riot in the matter of striped and plaided effects. To add sprightliness to the mode the little frocks of plaids and stripes take on all sorts of dainty organ die frills and furbelows Just like the fashions so much in vogue for the grown ups, are doing. We think the little ruffled organ die cape on the red and white cross bar dimity frock which the little girl to the left in the picture is wearing Is a detail worth keeping In mind when next the problem pre sents Itself as to “how to trim’’ this or that frock for Miss Seven or Eight. Each circular ruffle Is piped /vlth bright red to harmonize with the plaid. The skirt Is somewhat gored and a sash of self-material is tied In a perky bow at the back. Since these little capelets «ire so decorative and so easy to make, why wouldn’t it be a good idea to make one as a separate item so that it could be w’orn with any number of dainty frocks? Accessories of this sort count as a real asset when It comes to “dressing up’’ children to occasion. Concerning the charming little guimpe dress of multi-colored ging ham on the girl picking flowers, it is an adorable style for a child of BLACK AND WHITE HOLDS POPULARITY “Black and white” Is the refrain of the latest fashion song. Midseason showings in fashion houses displayed scores of costumes in the striking combinations. White coats and black frocks, white hats, gloves and collars with black dresses and white costumes with black trims are all seen. The white coat with the black frock is one of the most effective combinations of the season. Belong displays an afternoon frock of black satin printed in white leaves with a three-quarter length coat of white satin, while Bruyere shows a tea line frock, having a cap-sleeved white silk pique bodice and black silk skirt, topped by a long coat of white silk pique. White accessories with black frocks are seen at smart luncheons and teas. Summer Corsets of Soft Rubber Bid for Favor It isn’t fair to keep talking about the top layer of fashion and extoll ing its virtues while taking the more obscure items for granted. And right now there is considerable news next to the skin. A summer corset has made a bid for fashion’s favor. It is made of soft rubber —no stays or things to cramp your style—and instead of being cut so long all the way down to give that sleek line over the hips and upper part of the thighs, sec tions are clipped out neatly back and front and the legs slip througli rings like garters, making a perfect fit. Fi*hy Brooch One of the very latest decorative brooches comes In the shape of a perky little fish with its tail swished cockily over its back. It is in white composition with its fin and tail tipped with gold finished metal or chromium. six, or seven or so. The skirt is pleated and the bodice part is band ed at the top with a clever yoke effect which provides straps over the shoulders. This little contriv ance buttons, as you see, on to the fussy little organdie blouse. The puffed sleeves which give a broad shoulder effect are In keeping with present fashion trends. Pipings of the relate the guimpe to the d.. »BS. One of the very practi cal thugs about an outfit such as this is that it admits of several In terchangeable blouses. Brother-and-sister fashions are given special emphasis in the realm of juvenile apparel these days. Little sister’s dress and Junior’s blouse, as shown in the picture, fea ture the effectiveness of bright blue and white striped broadcloth for children’s clothes. An unprecedented vogue for linen goes on record this season both in the adult and the juvenile realm. The curly headed youngster with the wide-brimmed hat is clad in lin en even to her chapeau—pale blue handkerchief linen for her simple frock with little strips of navy blue linen binding and banding her hat, which is of heavy light blue crash linen. Handkerchief linen of the sheer est sort and in pastel colorings is proving a favorite for cunning little frocks upon which exquisite hand work Is lavished, especially smock ing, fagoting and drawnwork. ©. 1933, Western Newspaper Union. TIE-AROUND NECK nr (mmik Nicholas At a glance one senses tne swag ger style of this frock. In the first place the material of which it is made, a broad ribbed ehardonize acetate in gleaming white, is a dis tinctly new weave which carries a message of unmistakable swank. Note the neckline. See the amusing way it is tied around the throat like a drawstring in a laundry bag. The same kind of cord (made of self chardoni;*') which is used at the neckline, ties about the waist, knot ting casually at the side. Jacket Ensemble* The jacket frock is developed in all the fabrics of the moment —sum- mer sheer crepes, printed crepes, chiffons, linens, pique, eyelet em broidery and other cottons.
