RED CROSS GROUPS MAKE 256 HOSPITAL BATHROBES Mrs. J. Arthur Henley, chairman of the production committee of the Red Cross, announced yesterday that a shipment of 266 summer bathrobes had been sent to the area office in St. Louis this week. The robes are to be used by con- valescent soldiers, presumably in the hospitals in the southern states. Last year the committee fur- nished 300 robes for Camp Crowd- er, and the request for the others wa-5 sent from national headquar- tets after staff members learned of the Camp Crowder gift. Material for the robes, purchased locally, consisted of seersucker, muslin and gingham. Different de- signs and trimmings were used. A large part of the recent shipment made by three sewing groups who have been meeting regularity during the winter. They include the Friday Red Cross sewing group fit the Woman's Club, headed by Mrs. William Hays; the Temple Aid Sisterhood, with Mrs. W. M Alles as chairman, and a group of members of the Woman's Alliance of the First Community church tinder the direction of Mrs. E. M. MrAdams. Mrs. Henley also announced that materials for making a quota of 576 kit bags has arrived, and work on them will be apportioned to various sewing g-ioups within a few- days. Sometimes Indiscreet. "She is indiscreet, sometimes, I grant she said, "but I don't she ever has done anything to justify those exhibitions of Noel's. He does not know how to manage her. She is like a high- spirited racing horse with a driver ;vho uses whip and spur unwisely. If Noel does not look out, he will lose her eventually. I sometimes think Georges would have been a better mate for her." I was on my guard at once. I knew Olga would never try to in- terfere with her stepson's mar- riage, but for some reason she was subtly and deftly questioning me. "You Olga spoke stead- ily, but her voice was more un- even than I ever had heard it, you are going to permit him to carry Mary's photograph about with him."

SCHOOL COLLECTION YIELDS POUNDS CLOTHING The semi-final phase of Joplin's clothing contribution to persons of war-ravaged countries starts today with collection of bundles from schools for delivery to a warehouse at 531 Kentucky avenue, where Monday Navy Mothers will under- take the tedious but all-important task of assortment. P. A. Kaufmann, chairman in charge of the collections, said ap- proximately pounds of used clothing had been contributed through the city schools since Wed- nesday. Some rural schools have bundles yet to be reported, which are expected to complete Joplin's quota of pounds. In yesterday's final collection, fur coats, sheep-lined coats and even feather beds were contributed. In many neighborhoods school children made house-to-house canvasses. The high school alone collected three truckloads of clothing- and bedding. Members of the Order of the Eastern Star, under direction of Mrs. Bassett E. Longstreet, also conducted house-to-house calls for needed articles. Clothing contributed during the drive here, which lasted from Mon- day to Friday, will go to the United Nations clothing collection, conduct- ed to help needy persons in coun- tries where war has caused suffer- ing. Hollywood, April while browsing through an ancient file of these columns, my attention was caught by a few paragraphs published on May 27, 1939. Having been assured by at least a dozen stara that one Zella Sow- der was an infallible soothsayfr, able to read the future like an open book, I had lunched with the lady and brought back to my desk a fair sample of her predictions. I wrote "Miss like a wink (1) that Joan Craw- ford will marry a wealthy South American soon and retire from the screen; (2) that July, August and September of this year will see Hitler at the peak of his power; (3) that Joan Blondell and Dick Powell will break the Crosby record for stork visitations; (4) that Hedy Lamarr and Gene Mai-key will stay happily mar- ried, but Hedy will quit pic- tures and (5) that television will be almost as common as ordinary radio broadcasts by 1941 Miss Sowder could not have missed the mark more completely. It's equally difficult to understand why so many Hollywood celebrities and financial tj'coons are slavishly addicted to similar seers who, ac- cording to my investigations, are no more accurate in reading the future than she was during oiar luncheon encounter. I'd like to locate Miss Sowder again. By printing the reverse of her predictions, I should be able to score some fine new scoops.

When studio publicists tried to suppress news that Charles Bickford, then the screen's toughest tough guy, had won first prize in a dahlia-growing contest. A few months from now, when the current crop of movies reaches the screen, you'll notice that many of them will have one thing in number of sequences in which the backgrounds are almost completely obscured by fog. As the Grape Nuts people say in their ads: "There's a reason." The fog is being used to hide the absence of sets which can't be built because the carpenters are out on strike.

Mrs. John F. Taggart, chirman of the summer recreation commit- tee, which will take over the work of the former Joplin Youth Service Council, announced plans for a sum- mer playgrounds program. A sur- vey has been made in the schools to determine the recreations favored and number ot boys and girls ex- pected to take part in each locality. Crow, executive secretary of the MoKan area of Boy Scouts, con- tinued: "Before we had public schools it was the duty of the parent to educate their children. For that reason, the family relations were veiy close and the control of the children was the responsibility of the parent. "In order for corrections to be made it will again have to become the duty of parents to rear their own children, and to work in har- mony with the scouts, churches and other groups that deal with grocery, 914 West Twenty-second 1 street, March 18, was held to cir- cuit court for trial at his pre- field, Baxter Spiintts; Private It was loported that headquar- pocket battleship, the Luetzow, the London, April The Ger- i the teen-age." man navy, reeling under Allied Lion Joe Harding was program A report, perhaps exaggerated, that Fifi D'Orsay is no longer liv- ing in her accustomed affluence, brings back a host of memories. 1C Fifi is actually in low finances, I'm sure of one principal cause is her own incurable gen- erosity. In particular, I'm remind- ed of this incident: Miss D'Orsay, earning a week, 52 weeks a year, was doing a stage act in New York. To her dressing room one evening came a middle-aged wom- an who, after introducing herself as a friend of one of Miss D'Orsay's Hollywood pals, broke into tears and said she had to have Without further ado, Fifi went to the boxoffice, drew the money and gave it to her. Later, when re- proached by her business manager, she retorted: "But what could I was crying." A certain New York columnist has won attention by devoting much of his space to rapt remarks about feminine busts. Recently, in discussing Geraldine Fitzerald, he wrote: "She is a standout." Back in Hollywood, Miss Fitzgerald was asked what she thought of the columnist. "I hear he has just written a book in much the same style as his she said.
