Try a series of them! 170R an evening of real Winter fun your friends a snapshot party! The arrangements are simple. In- vite your friends each to bring a camera loaded with high speed film to wear a costume. You, in turn, provide.a supply of inexpensive "flood" bulbs, a few cardboard re- flectors of the lamp-shade type, and two or three bridge lamps in which the bulbs can be used. That aside from the refresh- all, and you can get the bulbs and reflectors from any film dealer who carries "snapshots-at night" kits. The party activity, nat- urally enough, consists of snapshoot- guest posing, another ar- ranging the lights, the others shoot- ing in turn. Of course, there should be prizes. Offer one prize for the most absurd pose, another for the funniest pic- ture idea, another for the most ex- traordinary camera angle or view- point. The best from the standpoint of picture possibili- also rate, a prize. Costume ideas are many. Your in- vitation may suggest carnival cos- tumes, "hard times" costumes, or old-fashioned costumes. Or, you can leave the matter open allowing each guest to use his imagination in choosing a costume idea. Incidentally, to take snapshots at such a party, your guests don't have to have fme, fast cameras. The sim- plest box or folding model with do, with photo bulbs and high speed film. One thing you should have exposure guide or leaflet on you can get one free from any photo shop. This will settle questions of where to place the lights and how many to use. One caution: don't use more than three of the big bulbs on one house circuit. Your snapshot party really should have a second party at which pictures from the first party are exhibited. It's hard to tell which of the two parties will provide more fun and entertainment. And you'll arrange more of them, too for they're splendid Winter entertain- ment.

Southeast Sider Paints Glowing Picture of Army Earl V. Gates Points Out Many Opportunities of the Service. Interested in globe trotting? Studying? Flying Getting ahead in life? Then join the Army, young man! At least that's the advice of Earl V. Gates, 7418 Cottage Grove ave., who, in his capacity as a major judge advocate in the Officers' re- serve, U.S. Army, is interviewing re- cruits every afternoon and evening in his office. Offers Opportunities. "The Army is offering excellent opportunities for physically fit young men the ages of 18 and 35 Mr. Gates told tne Econo- mist yesterday. "For the young man yearning for the excitement and the experiences of globe trotting, the Army has stations in every section of the United States and in the Panama Canal zone, Hawaii, the Philippines and Alaska. "The youth who wants 'to study and attain commissioned rank standing can not only do so, but also has a chance to go to West Point if he can prove his worth and capa- bilities. For the young man who desires to save money, pay, includ- ing keep, starts at per month and increases to per month for the non-commissioned soldier and into the hundreds for the com- missioned officers. Chance for Study. "Opportunities also are offered young men who want to fly or learn automotive mechanics, radio trans- mission, medical or dental labora- tory work or X-ray. "Sometimes yop hear that Army life is dangerous. Statistics show that just the opposite is true, that there are more accidents, sickness and death among civilians than in the Army.' The reason is that the soldier's health is taken care of, he receives proper rest, adequate exercise, medical and dental care, proper food and the like. In addi- tion, if you are injured at home you get no. pension, whereas if you are injured in military duty you have the right -to pension."
