II THE SAGUACI-IE CRESCENT (Released by Western Newspaper Union.) By VIRGINIA VALE WARNER Brothers' "Heroes Without Uniforms," a story of the American-Merchant Ma- rine, will be the first of a group of films telling us things that the government wants us to know. Lowell Mellet, co-ordinator of government films, recently sub- mitted to industry leaders a list of 30 topics about which the gov- ernment wishes the public to be in- formed. Originally it was planned to use his ideas as material for short subjects, but it now seems likely that some of them, at least, will be developed into feature-length pic- tures. "Parachute Nurse" has what might be termed an All-Starlet cast, virtually an all-feminine one. When Charles Barton, the director, count- ed noses he found Marguerite Chap man, Shirley Patterson, Alma Car- roll, aud eight other beauty-contest winners. Now it's Priscilla Lane who's hav- ing to learn card tricks. Jan Grippo, who tutored Veronica Lake for her PRISCILLA sleight-of-hand role in "This Gun fox Hire" is doing the same for Pris- cilla, for "Silver Queen," in which she plays oppoaite George Brent. Three of the cast of Columbia's "The Invaders" have signed rather unusual contracts. Glynts Johns, Erie PoTtman and Anton Walbrook have agreed to appear in Hollywood within three months after the war Is ended; won't leave England fill then. When you see Paramount's "Wake Island" you'll see a setting that's absolutely authentic. The contract- ing firm which made the actual de- lense installations for the Wake Is- land marine garrison before the Jap anese attack is in charge of con- strucfion at the Salton Sea location for the picture. It is recreating on the shores of the California island sea an exact duplication of the Pacific atoll establishment. John Farrow is directing "Wake Island," with a cast including Brian Donlevy, Robert Preston, Albert Dekker and Bar bara Britton. "Crossroads," the Hedy Lamarr. William Poweil picture, brought up a slight dilemma at Metro. Powel], Basil Rathbone and Felix Bressart all had mustaches, and all were loath to part with them--but three was just too many for one film. P~well is a suave diplomat in the picture, Rathbone felt that a villain must have a mustache. Bressart couldn't bear to part with his. You'll have to see the picture to find out who lost out. Tcmt's Ginger Rogers' mother whom you'll see as Ginger Rogers' mother in "The Major knd the Mi- nor"; she'll be making her screen debut. She had been a drama edi- tor and a dramatic coach, she~s been in charge of the younger players at RKO and this past year she's been installing a dairy at Ginger's 1,1N-acre ranch in Oregon--but nev- er before has she been an actress. The famous musicians of the fu- ture may find themselves forming a "Those Who Were Helped by Ma- Joe Bowes" association. For in- stance, take the Aquaviva brothers. Anthony, 17, a clarinetist, recently on the Major's program, said that if he won a prize he'd help his young- er brother, Nicholas, to get the kind of tutoring he was getting. An- thony won $100, second prize. The Major suggested that he have Nich- olas audition for the program. Nich- olas, 14, won first prize. So Ma- jor Bowes, with the help of every- body who voted for the lads, helped them along, ODDS AND gNDS--Remrnin8 ~ the IoC where she was an impor~ star, Et~ly~ Brent reporte~ to Paramoum to play o role in ~ll'rec~S Crew"; Rick.

This blood, processed into life- saving plasma for emergency transfusions, is collected from vol- unteer blood donors at 18 Red Cross Blood Donor centers. For technica! reasons, these centers are limited at present to cities near laboratories which have con- tracts with the army for process- lng the blood into dried plasma, according to the Red Cross. The program was launched in February, 1941, following a request by the surgeons gen- eral of the army and navy that the Red Cross provide 15,000 pints of blood to be processed into dried plasma. This pro- gram has now been expanded at the request of the army and navy to the point where over one million donors will be re- quire& Eighteen centers have been opened, and donations ure pouring in at the rate of approximately 60,000 a month. Giving blood is a simple proc- ess, requires but a few minutes time on the part of the donor, and has no after effects. The blood is shipped daily in refrigerated containers to the laboratories, where it is processed into dried plasma, a light, straw colored powder that can be kept indefinite- ly and transported easily. Numerous cases have been ~eperted where plasma saved the lives of American soldiers and sailors suffering from burns and traumatic shock, and Red Cross plasma has been distributed to our armed forces operating in the Atlantic and Pae~fle war theaters. How- ever, thousands of additional donors are needed to supply the full requirements forthe army and navy, and to provide plasma for uny civilian emer- lencies which may result from eaemy action in this country. Red Cross Blood Donor centers are located in New York, Phila- delphia, Baltimore, Buffalo, Roch- ester, N. Y., Indianapolis, Detroit, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Boston, Mil- waukee, Cleveland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Cincinnati, Brooklyn, and Washington, D. C. (Prepared exclusively for WNU.)

Turn the old rags and papers over to organizations conducting defense salvage campaigns. After use, dry steel wool in sun to prevent its rusting. The ideal way to put linens away is to roll them. Mailing tubes are excellent, so are broom handles, window-shade rollers or sections of poles on which rugs may have been rolled. Store linens in a cool-- not hot or dry--place. Do not add salt to the water when boiling corn on the cob--it would toughen the corn. Boil corn 10 minutes, drain and serve imme- diately tucked in the folds of a napkin. Never let corn stand in water after it is done; that would impair the flavor and texture. Room Clerkette ... world's largest hotel!
