M. B.—Have I the wrong o
pinion of my husband? He is
very nice to me. I don’t work,
just take care of the home cho
res but .-•metimes he acts a bit
nasty, nor for any cause of my
part. I like right and honest
doings. When he a«*s indiff
erent I tell him about it and he
doesn’t like that apd then he
acts real nasst/. We never fuss,
just speak each other out, then
we are through. An I right in
accusing him.
Ans: The accusations you
make and the cool, indifferent
attitude you assume toward
your husband is wrong. You
should not accuse your mate of
anything unless you have def
inite proof, even then it is a bad
policy to do so. And—you may
not think that your habit of
speaking him out is not fussing
but it is. It antagonizes him
and every time it occurs it has
a teinfancy to increase the ten
sion between you. Display a
little more love and understand
ing in your marriage.
L. C.—1 received the Hap
pier Living Lesson and have
been benefited greatly by it. I
enjoy even more reading your
most helpful letters of advice
which have been a light to my
eyes. Here is my problem. My
uiother-m-law is not W ell and
has sent a railroad ticket fc>r me
to come visit her and bring our
boy which she has never seen.
1 really want to go but do not
want to leave my husband. He
says he thinks it would be nice.
Should 1 go;
Ans: By all means do. She
w ill be overjoyed to see you an
her grandson. There is no ques
tion bnt that it will hit her spir
its. Plan your trip ior the week
before Labor Day and your hu
sband can make the trip on the
weekend. All three of you can
return together.
X. C.—1 find your column
most interesting. 1 have had a
good paying job for the past
eight years but we have little
to show lor it. 1 want a com
fortable home and a little mon
ey to >how for it. I want a com
fortable home and a little mon
ey ahead but my wife lives on
ly for today li 1 mention sav
ing, it causes a minundestand
ing. Yet, 1 hate to make such
good money and keep mum a*
bout it slipping away so fast.
Ans: lt’» folly to live up eve
rything that you make. You
are wise to avoid a misunder
standing with the wife but you
can do something about the
matter. Sdt aside a deimite
sum each pay day for saving.
Put this money in the bank
and refuse to discuss it further
Continue to give the balance of
the check to her to manage as
she desires.
S. M.—I graduated from the
University this past June. The
re are three men in my life.
One is a successful business
man, one is a medical student
and one is studying law. All 1
have proposed marriage but 1
cannot make up my mind. I
wint to know which one would
make the best husband and
make me happy in future years
Or should I choose either one?
An-: You are not ready for
marriage. In your anxiety to
make a good catch—you are
overlooking the most import
ant factor of all—and that is
LOVE. When vou feel that
you have met the one and only
man in the world who can make
you happy—then you will be
ready for marriage Give up the
idea right now and accept the
position you have been offered.
G. X—I met a girl in Texas
when I was vacationin'- there
in June. She was nice to me
and said she wvmld like to come
up to this part of the country
and live. She wrote me twice
to send her money for her tic
ker and get her a place to stay
This I did, but she did not com
N'Ow she has written again.
Shoald I send it to her?
. Ans: She’s not your respon
sibility so why should you
continue to play Santa Clause
to her. You favored her twice
and went to an awful lot of
trouble to get her a rooming
place and she did not hesitate
to break her promise and disa
ppoint you. You’d be chump
to dole out any more money
when actually you do not care
particularly for the young lady.

when it isn’t where, it is sup
bustible indicators will give
posed to be. A lot of exper
ience is necessary to know how
to use these instruments.
Possibly the most outstand
ing and little realized accom
plishment of this department!
occured last summer during i
the change-over to natural gas.
Each morning for 74 days the
old gas was bled out of the
mains and the natural gas in
troduced into a new section of
the city without affecting any
one not in the section to be
converted that day; really a
tremendious undertaking. To
do this job required the instal
lation of over 400 hundred val
ves distributed throughout the
system. The installation of
these valves was started only
a few weeks before the conver
sion men were in the field and
the entire job was done with
out interfering with the pro
gress of the conversion in anj*
way. Tbe entire procedure re
quired at least a thousand op
enings or closing of vales.
When this job was complet
ed a little let up seemed in or<U
er but it just did not happen
that way. More mams are be
in? laid, more services for gas
furnaces and then the constant
leak patrol and no let up in
Todav to keep up wath con
struction work and not let
down on other activities the
gas construction department
have increased their regular
crews from 65 to 180. The re
cruits hre mostly high school
seniors and college men, who
take the work to help them
through the college year, in-'
c|3entally developing fine foot
ball muscles. The crews come
on in June work through the
long vacation and finish in time
for college opening.
They in fact receive a real
W’orking Utilities Scholarship.
The college boys are intelli
gent, walling workers and make
fine crewrs.
Hollywood, Calif., Aug. 11,
The King Cole Trio, complete
with new bassit Joe Comfort,
seems to be set here on the
coast for quite some time. Im
mediately upon their return
from a F’almoar Supper Club
engagement in Vancouver, the
“bleesome threesome" will op
en at the Red Feather Cafe in
Los Angles for four weeks.
This date is to be followed'by
two stanzas at the Club Mod
erne in Long Beach.
The Trio’s lengthy stay on
the coast is due to tfie fact that
Xat and the boys have been
signd to do eight gust appear
ances on the Chesterfield radio
program from Hollywood. The
show also features Peggy Lee
and Dave Barbour who have
been signed as regulars.
New York.—Thousands of
music and opera lovers, includ
ing hundreds of Harlem soc
ial and civic celebrities, jammed
Triborough Stadium here last
Saturday night to witness Mur_
iel Rahn’s debut in the itle role
j of *Aida” with Salmaggi Opera
Company. Not since Caterina
Jarboro, noted diva, returned
from Italy 14 years ago to sing
the sam&hole at the old Hipp
odrome Theatre, under the
sarne Maestro Salmaggi, have
Harlemites witnessed an opera
tic debut of such proportions.
With a brilliant full moon add
ingto the otherwise glittering
Bisplay of scenery, lights, and
costumes, the “Opera Under th
Stars” exceeded fondest expect
tions after a postponement last
week due to rainy weather.
-Miss Rahn, the only Negro in
the cast, was easily the star of
the evening judging ?rom the
“BravoB” that echoed through
out the atadit^n whenever her
performance required the deliv
ery of an aria or other difficult
| passages of the Verdi score
Mario Pasquetto, noted ten
or, whom Salmaggi imported
from Italy this summer to sing
the role of “Rhadames”, appear
ed opposite Miss Rahn and he
shared vocal honors her
many times in duets and other,
ensemble numbers, as did Nor.
ma Howard, brilliant mezzo
soprano, who sang the role of
Eugene Morgan as “Amono
sro”, the father of “Aida”, was
particularly effective in his
duet with Miss R&in, while
Vittorio Tatozzi as the “King”
and Joseph Contraeras as “Ra
mfis”, high priest, were both
excellent and in good voice.
The Corps de Ballet was also
one pf the highlights of the
evening and Conductor Garbiel
Simeoni led the 65 piece sym
phony in a spirited accompani
ment. Above: left to right:

You don’t get immunity
from fire with every purchase
of vation reservations.
Your only guarantee is cau
tion, advises the National
Board of Fire Underwriters,
this week. Vacationers, regard
less of race or color, have to
be even more careful than at
home, the Board states, be
cause buildings meant only for
seasonal use are more likely
to have fire hazards than those
used year-round.
Summer casualties in cot
tages and resort hotels run
high. Most of the fires are
found to be the result of sim
ple carelessness, according to
the fire prevention authorities.
Although part of the charm
of summer homes ia their iso
lation from everything citified,
they pointed out, that means
those isolated homes are also
far from Municipal fire depart
ments, putting the responsibil
ity of safeguarding the cottage
from fire on the vacationer
They advise, before settling
into your bungalow for the
summer, look it over for pos
sible fire hazards. If you have
a refrigerator or other electric
appliance, oil it before using
it again. Be sure electric cir
cuit won’t be overloaded with
your extra electric appliances.
Take along extra 15 ampere
fuses for emergency.
See that your stove is 18
inches from the woodwork and
that stove pipes are clear. Place
a metal screen in front of the
Don't dry clean at home.
Any gasoline you must use
sh®uld be stored outdoors.
Know what to do in case of
fire. Learn the location of the
nearst fire department. Keep
some kind of fire-fighting
equipment handy. A garden
hose if thert’s water under
pressure available, or a back
pump, or other hand spray ex
In picnicking, be careful
about smoking. Don’t throw
lighted cigarettes or matches
anywhere about you. Before
leaving a campfire see that all
rubbish is cleaned up, and that
the fire has been smothered
properly with damp earth.
If you're staying in a hotel,
be sure you read the safety in
structions posted in your room.
Find out the exit nearest you,
and never smoke in bed.
Don’t take any chances. Peo
ple on vacation generally want
to cast aside any suggestion of
routine, but the National Board
of Fire L'nderwriters advises,
they actually will be a lot more
carefree if they follow a few
elementary rules for safety.

Indians Popped Corn
Popcorn was raised by the Indi
ans long before Columbus arrived in
the Western hemisphere. It became
an important commercial crop
about 1880. Formerly it was sup
posed that the popping of corn was
caused by the volatilization of oil
In the grain. The explosion is dua
simply to the formation of steam
within the grain when it is heated
—neither air nor volatile oil, experts
say, Is concerned in the process
Popcorn with a louder “pop” has
been developed.

When a child keeps coming
home from school with low
grades, his parents frequently
try to “fix the blame” for the
bad report cards. They might
scold the youngster himself
for being “lazy and inatten
tive.” Or they might feel that
“Johnny just can’t seem to get
anywhere with his teacher this
There are children who have
special problems, of course,
but I’m afraid that parents
themselves are sometimes to
blame for the bad marks. Re
sponsibility toward Johnn's
learning does not end with
merely registering him at
school. Johnny will get the
most out of school if he is
healthy and stays healthy, and
it is up to his parent* to keep
a check on the child’s health.
I have a young friend who
was graduated from igh school
last June with the highest hon
ors. He hopes to go to college
soon and plans to study law.
But years ago, when he started
elementary school, it certainly
didn’t look as if fittle Dick Ir
ving would ever take anv hon
ors. ' .
Dick got through the first
few years of school without
serious mishap. It was in the
fourth grade, as studies grew
more difficult, that the trouble
began. Throughout the fall and
winter of that year, his report
cards grew steadily worse. The
child seemed to be losing
weight. He grew listless and
irritable and seemed to hate
school and everything connect
ed with it.
Finally Dick’s teacher visit
ed Mr. and Mrs. Irving. She
startled them when she told
them she suspected that Dick’s
grades were low because he
wasn’t seeing or hearing welt.
Unfortunately, there was no
school doctor or nurse at the
time in that particular school
and the teacher advised the
Irvings to take Dick to his
family doctor for a check-up.
The boy’s parents were
alarmed and brought him to
see me the following night. I
found that Dick had an accum
ulation of wax in his ears that
w'as impairing his hearing.
With treatment, his hearing
improved rapidly. His defec
tive vision took a little longer
to correct, but with good med
ical care and the proper eye
glasses, Dick’s sight was great
ly improved within a few
months. His grades steadily
got better and he led his class
es in the seventh and eighth
Sometimes a child who seem
to be dull and inattentive in
school, actually has some phys
ical disability that is respon
sible for his now marks. The
parents who forms the habit
of bringing his child to the
doctor periodically for a check
up or consults the doctor at
the first sign that something is
wrong, takes w steps to in
sure the child’s well-being.
