MT. ADAMS SUN "4 FRIDAY,, APRIL 7, 1939 star Dust CLASSIFIED DEPARTMENT 4 Ties That Don't Bind k Gene Charms Royalty * Listed/or a Beating -- By Virginia Vale- OSEPH BENTON NORTH has performed fifty-two marriage ceremonies, and not one of them had any lasto ing effect. He can recite the marriage rituals of forty- seven varieties of religion, ranging from the voodooistic ceremony to that of the Church of England, but he uses a mixed ritual which he made up himself. As you've probably suspected by now, he is a minister without portfolio, one who officiates only in the movies. Of the many screen players whom he has "married" North reveals that Claudette Colbert exhibited the most nervousness; he thinks that was be- cause she is the most religious. The calmest person, he says, was Rochelle Hudson; she took two of his ceremonies in her stride,  and CLAUDETI'E COLBERT apparently thought they were amus- ing. Laura LaPlante cried, and Marlene Dietrich kept arranging her hair and dress. His most recent appearance on the screen as a marrying man was for "Wutbering Heights." Merle Oberon and David Nh-en were the bride and groom, and he used the ritual dictated by the period. The Princesses Elizabeth nd Mar. garet, of England's royal family, were asked recently to name their favorite motion picture star. Ignor. tug Norma Shearer, Janet Gaynor, Clark Gable, and the other top- hotel/ors (including Shirley Temple) they replied "Gone Autrey." When Billie Burke broke her hnkle she was considerate enough to pick a perfect time in which to do it. She tripped as she was leaving the "Maiden Voyage" set, and snap went the ankle. Being a seasoned trouper, her first thought was of the picture, and the delay that might be caused by her accident. But it happened that all of her walking shots had been made. She was due just to sit in the rest of the picture anyway. How'd you like to look ahead to taking a beating? That is what Walter Pidgeon has been doing. For "Six Thousand Enemies" is slated as his next picture, and the script calls for him to be soundly beaten by one of the six thousand--with a husky pugilist selected by the east- tug department for the role. Pid- geon has been using his spare time between scenes of "Penthouse" to practice up a bit, but he is none too optimistic about his own skill, even though the script does put a limit on he amount of damage that is to be done to him. Fred  Allen is one of the few radio stars who does not own a farm. He hasn't a car, either; he prefers to live in a hotel and ride in taxis. Most of the big-time radio stats feel that they can't get along without a country home. Frank Black, Paul Whiteman and Benny Goodman have farms in Pennsylvania; Larmy Ross and Lowell Thomas each own acreage in New York state; Tommy Dorsey's place is in New Jersey, and Morton Downey's in Connecticut. And if you don't believe that they really turn into farmers whenever they get a chance you ought to hear them talk! Those radio introductions are like. ly to go haywire, as did one in which Pat O'Brien was involved the other day. He went to the midget auto races in Hollywood with Norris Gaff, who is "Abner" of radio's famous Suits of Glamorous \\; fools Are Top Fashion Spring N UP-TO-DATE wardrobe with- out a chic new suit? It just isn't being done nowadays. All fashiondom has gone wildly, deliri- ously suit-mad this spring--which is your cue as to "what to wear" at this immediate moment. The fact that fashion is in a mood to suit you as you have never been suited before should count a lot in your planning this spring. Tlw thing that plays big in the glorifica= tion of the new suits is the superbly colorful and intriguingly textured wool fabrics that challenge deSign- ers to turn out a pageantry of suits that in the matter of variety and chic and charm outrivals all pre- vious showings so far as we of the resent generation are concerned. The new tweeds are captivating, especially the soft coarse meshy kind that are so eminently patrician in their now-so-stylish neutral oat- meal tones, and in the smart honey- beige or in subtle grays that so appeal to discriminating taste. Some of these natural toned tweeds are flecked with multi-color which makes them even more alluring. It's a stroke of genius to buy a new threesome ensemble which includes a skirt, jacket and long topcoat for this many.piece interchangeable combination, together with a collec- tion of blouses, measures up to clothes requirements for almost any daytime event. Then, too, later on the coat can be worn as a wrap over dainty summer frocks. We are illustrating just such a threesome (see the figure seated). This outfit is beautifully tailored of an imported tweed in soft heather mixture. It has a straight skirt and unusual shoulder detail. The shoul- ders and lapels of the topcoat dupli- cate those of the suit. The suit jacket is a one button type. The sailor hat is in a deep purple veiled to bespeak the femininity of the present mode. Veils and Veiling Are Omnipresent Veils and veiling are that omni- present in the millinery mode the eyes have to sight through yards and, yards of veiling to discover the hat itself. To radiate the spirit of sping try tying a bright green veil over your new black or navy straw. Green veils are the "last word in chic." It's the proper thing to match the color of your veil to your gloves and other accessories. You will like the new hats made all of veiling. They are appealingly feminine and in their exquisite colorings they tune to spring most charmingly. The allo veiling hat (most often a little sailor) is made of twisted strands of the veiling or layer upon layer. To add allure there are long streamer ends of the veiling to tie and twirl with provocative grace. Navy Vogue Steps To Fashion Front "Lure nd Abner" team.

Suits of checked, striped or plaid- ed woolens have revolutionized  the mode in that they are a far de- parture from the classic navy or- black monotones of yore. The fact that the plaid skirts are pleated also gives them the spring "look." See the nifty plaid suit to the right in the illustration. It typifies the new trend perfectly. It is of imported tweed in soft yellow with crossbar of brown (smart color combination this season). The pleated skirt stamps this suit with unmistakable chic. The pleats are stitched down around the hips for smooth slender- izing line. The single-breasted jack- et observes every rule of the game L 9 matter of swank detail.

Houston Goudiss Offers Practical Help in Planning Meals That Avoid Hidden Hunger; Illustrates Right and Wrong Methods of Menu Building By C. HOUSTON GOUDISS GENERATION ago, homemakers approached the prob- lem of feeding their families with but two objectives: to put weight on their children and to send adults away from the table with their appetites appeased. If the child failed o to gain satisfactorily, or if his teeth were crowded and sub- ject to decay, he was said to "take after his Uncle Abner" or perhaps to have inherited the poor teeth of his maternal grandmother. And if adults were chronically tired or suf- fered from "nerves," that, too, was blamed on circum- stances that had nothing to do with the diet. No one had ever heard of hid- den hunger! For nutritionists had not yet startled the world by demon- strafing that food may satisfy the ap- petite and yet fail to feed . . that the absence of mi- nute amounts of minerals and vita- mias may be re- sponsible for a long train of deficiency diseases which cause untold mis- ery and are responsible for men- tal and physical inefficiency. Planning Meals Scientifically Today we know that a definite relationship exists between food consumption and bodily acti,aity, and that normal individuals can usually control body weight by regulating the amount of fuel foods in the diet. We know that minerals and vitamins play a pow- erful part in building and main- taining sound teeth as well as healthy nerves; and that we can build resistance to disease, defer old age, and even lengthen the span of life by choosing our food, not merely for its appetite appeal, but for the qualities that contrib- ute toward what nutritionists term a balanced diet. The Balanced Diet Every modern homemaker ",, therefore owes it to her family not to plan meals at random, but to take into consideration the seven factors that science has deter- mined to be essential for top health. These include: protein for building and repairing body tissue; carbohydrates to produce quick heat and energy; fats, a more compact form of fuel; min- erals, which serve both as build- ers, and as regulators of body processes; vitamins A, B, C, D, E and G, which act as regulators, and help to prevent the various de- ficiency diseases; water, which serves as a vehicle by which food is carried to the tissues, and cellu- of the raw, leafy variety; two servings of fruit, and at least one serving of a whole grain cereal. By adhering to this plan: you will help to supply your family with the necessary proteins, min- erals, vitamins and cellulose. Fuel foods may be added by way of breadstuffs, macaroni, rice and other cereals; butter or margarine and the fats used in cooking. Common Errors in'Menu Planning Common mistakes in menu plan- ning are a concentration of too many proteins or carbohydrates m one meal; the failure to include adequate bulk by way of fruits, vegetables and whole grain cere- als; and the massing in one meal of too many foods that are high in fat. The following menu, for exam- ple, contains more protein than necessary, and too little bu, yet it is typical of the dinners served in many homes: Hamburger Steak, Baked Beans, Potatoes, Stewed Corn, Custard Pie. Since both meat and baked beans are rich in protein, they may well be served at separate meals, as indicated by either of the following combinations: Ham- burger Steak, Creamed Potatoes, String Beans, Lettuce Salad, Fresh or Cooked Fruit. Or, Baked Beans, Stewed Tomatoes, Cabbage Salad, Custard Pie. In.the first menu, the beans, po- tatoes, corn and pastry are all high carbohydrate foods. To pro- vide additional bulk, as well as to reduce the amount of carbo- hydrate, it would be advisable to serve a green vegetable such as string beans, and choose fruit in- stead of pie for dessert. It is as- sumed, of course, that eggs would be given in some other form dur- ing the day. Since baked beans contain both protein and carbohydrate, we omit potatoes in the third menu, and REAL ESTATE i 4 Rustle Cottages---neautlful Country Homo ---40 forest acres. Also 5-rm.

It's Balance That Cou.ts It requires no more time or ef- fort to prepare nutritionally cor- rect meals than those which lack balance, nor is it more expen- sive. For elaborate meals can lack balance, if they are deficient in minerals, vitamins and bulk, while those composed of such simple foods as bread and milk, and stewed fruits may provide an abundance of the protective sub- stances which satisfy the hidden hunger of the body. My plea to homemakers is to give less thought to the prepara- tion of elaborate recipes, and more thought to supplying the food values that will create abundant health and vitality. In that way, I believe we shall take a real step forward in human progress. Questions Answered Mrs. T. L. D.--The alkdHne or base-forming foods include vege- tables, most fruits, nuts and milk.

TIPS to Gardeners HE full-sleeved, high-waisted dress (1721) is a perfectly charmifig fashion for afternoon parties, club meetings and lunch- eons. It does nice things to your figure, because the bodice is gath- ered into just enough fullness, and the high waistline makes you look slimmer around the middle and over the diaphragm. Make it of silk crepe, georgette, prints or chiffon. Here's a simple little pattern (1670) that brings you one of the very smartest styles of the sea- son--the button-front frock for ev- ery day wear. It has wide shoul- ders, a flaring skirt, and the fit- ting is all by means of simple darts that draw in the waistline and fill out the bust. Flat crepe, Australian Aborig;nes Although the white colonizatiorJ of Australia began in 1788, the majority of its aborigines still do not know how to cultivate land, make clothes or build a shelter other than a windbreak, declares Collier's. These people have al- ways been looked upon as little more than animals. In fact, up to 40 years ago, a settler merely re- quired a permit to "shoot, poison or otherwise kill" them at will. There are estimated to be 60,000 ab.original Australians among the commonwealth's present popula- tion of 7.000.000. Helping Seeds Along HE first step toward insuring germination of seeds is prope planting. In exceptionally dry weather, however, even properly planted seeds may not germinate. It fs advisable in such a case to prepare the dry soft for the seed. Water freely, as though you had a crop growing. Allow the water to soak in and when the soil has good moisture content, begin your planting. You must be careful, of course, not to plant in wet, muddy soft. Excessive rainfall, on the other hand, may make the soil so moist as to cause rotting of planted seeds. While few vegetable seeds re- quire special treatment to assist germination, numerous flower seeds can successfully be treated, according to Gilbert Bentley, flow- er expert. He advises as follows: Nick the seed coat of lupin, moonflow- er and morning glory; remove the rough outer coating of nasturtium, momordica, castor bean and sand verbena; soak canna, lily, Job's tear and sweet pea seeds in wa- tur for 1;I hours before planting. e
