, i THE SAGtIACHE CRESCENT I II By VIRGINIA VALE Released by Western Newspaper Union. HE first picture which Katharine Hepburn will make for M-G-M under her new long-term contract will be "Without Love," in which she starred on Broadway last season; it's by Philip Barry, who wrote "The Philadelphia Story." It's one more version of the old: old tale about the young woman who marries with the under- standing that the marriage is to be purely one of convenience, and then discovers that she loves the man, after all. Until about two months ago Dick Haymes was just a chap who sang with a band--Harry James', Benny Goodman's and Tommy Dorsey's, in that order. As vocalist with Dor- soy, he'd had a share in "DuBarr3  Was a Lady," when it was made at Metro last spring. Recently his star bega to rise; he had a successful DICK HAYMES night club engagement, cut two tre- mendously successful records, was given stellar billing in the air's "Here's to Romance." He'll proba- bly sign with a major studio before you read this. Somebody at Metro realized that the lad was hot stuff and ran "DuBarry" for a look at him. Every scene he appeared in had gone to oblivion on the cut- ring room floor! "For Whom the Bell Tolls" still heads the list of what New Yorkers are talking about--with the war ex- cepted, of course. The general opin- ion seems to be that it is by far the best picture that has come along in 1943, worth sitting for nearly three hours to see. You'll enjoy it more if you've read the book, since it had to eachanged a bit to conform to the ys code. But on the whole it is remarkably true to the story. The cast is excellent; it was nothing short of inspiration to give Katina Paxinou the role of "Pilar." The photography, in technicolor, is some of the best that we have seen. The 350 soldier actors of "This Is the Army" were forbidden by the war department to talk to actresses on the Warner lot while making the picture. Joan Leslie, the leading lady, eouldo'  understand their In- difference to her. They sent a sec- ond lieutenant to her dressing room, finally, to say "My men want you to know that by unanimous vote they have chosen you as the motion picture star they'd most like to meet." After that Joan felt better. RKO Radio annouRces that stage, radio, night clubs and little theaters have been combed to provide the studio with new film talent having possibilities of stardom. Edward Srrmll, whose pictures are released by United Artists, announces that he has signed Tony Devlin, 16-year- old student of a Los Angeles high school, the first of a list which he hopes to recruit from high schools and colleges for possible motion pic- ture careers. The talent search is an! A complete file of the London imes for the period of the great blitz of 1940 was received by War- ner Bros. for source material for the Ida Lupinv-Paul Henreid pic- ture, "In Our Time." One of the is- m2es included an account of the 'death of Stanley Lupine, Ida's fa- ther, who was killed in the blitz. The famous actor was serving as a defense volunteer. Incidentally, You'll hear Ida humming one of her own songs in the picture; paid $25 for it, she sent the money to the lollywood Canteen. About a year ago Russell Wade was picked right out of a group of eXtras by RKO and given a term contract. He'll be featured in "Ghost Ship." + b ODDS AND ENDS--Good standing in a Ilarr,j Wood an club requires the regular rche o[ war bonds and stamps . . .

UNIFORM IN,I"ERNATIONAL 00UNDAY / 00,I)CHOOL Lesson By HAROLD L. LUNDQUIST. D. D. Of The Moody Bible Institute of .Chicago. (Released by Western Newspaper umon.) Lesson for August 8 Lesson subjects and Scripture texts se- lected and copyrighted by International Council of Religious Education; used by Derrnlssion. GOD SHOWS HIS PEOPLE THE WAY LESSON TEXT--Exodus 13:17-22; 15-17, tS.a. GOLDEN TEXT--The Lord is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation.- Exodus 15:2. The destinies of the nations are in the hands of God. Warriors are mighty in battle, counselors are quick to declare their wisdom, and iplomats are clever in the manipu- ation of wealth and people. But when they have all exercised to the limit their ingenuity and power they have only succeeded in bringing us "blood, sweat and tears" as the por- tion of all mankind. Israel was about to be delivered from the bondage of Egypt, and God through His leader Moses was ready to be their guide. Even so He guides every believer in Christ. We may learn three things from this lesson. I. God Has a Plan (Exod. 13: 17-19). There was a direct, easy road along the coast of the Mediterranean up to Canaan, but God with His pil- lar of cloud and fire did not out in that way. How strange that He should take them by a longer, more difficult way! Not at all. He knew the dan- ger of the easy way. It was there that the warlike Philistines would be lying in ambush. Such immediate conflict would discourage Israel and tempt them to return to the fleshpots of Egypt. So He took them the other way. Note that God's guidance for them was one of intelligent planning, not just impulse or chance. He knew what to do, and He did it, for their good. God has a plan, not only for the nations, but also for individuals, for your life and mine. Let us find His will for us, for it is good, acceptable and perfect (Rein. 12:1. 2). Note the honoring of the faith of Joseph in God's promise (v. 19). The memory of his assurance was a blessing to his descendants, and they honored it and him. What will our descendants have to say about our faith in God? II. GOd Provides Guidance (Zxod. 13:20-22). God's plan is made known to His people as, they follow Him step by step. This means that there must be guidance, moment by moment if His plan is to be worked out. He gives such guidance and it is only when His children fail to follow it that the pattern of life becomes con- fused. The field of divine guidance is one in which Christians have widely di- vergent experiences. Some know the sweet, unconfused daily experience of God's hand upon them, caring for even the minor details (or are they minor?) of life. Others have known the directive power of God in some life crisis, but not in the ordinary affairs of life. Many, and perhaps most, think of divine guidance as a spiritual theory of which the preach- er talks, but know nothing of it in their own lives. What makes this great difference? Faith--or the lack of it. Those who trust God accept and receive His blessed leadership moment by mo- ment. It is as simple as that. Oth- ers reach odt and take it when the pressure of life makes them cast themselves on God. Others simply muddle along "doing their best," which is not their best, for God is not in it. The pillar of cloud, which be- came luminous at night, was ideal for the guidance of Israel. It pro- vided shade by day from the hot sun, and a sure guide in the dark- ness of the night. III. God Gives Joyous Victory (Exod. 15:17-22a). Israel soon came against the in- surmountable barrier (humanly speaking) of the Red sea. Then Pharaoh, regretting that he had re- leased them, came up after them-- an impossible situation, and the people began to berate Moses. This time he stood fast in his faith and said: "Stand still and see the salva- tion of Jehovah"--and it came! Then followed the song of victori- ous joy, which Moses wrote and the people sang. Deliverance brings joy, and forget it not, God is able to deliver those who put their trust in Him. The application to our spiritual lives is a blessed one. Setting out on God's way does not mean that one will not have trials. They come, and quickly. We do not get farther than our Red sea when the world sees an vlpportunity to draw us back and comes charging at us from the rear, like Pharaoh. What to do? Trust God, and He will drown the Pharaoh who pursues you in the very Red sea which is now your difficulty. He will bring you through dryshod if you count on Him. Fearful, fretting, fussing Chris- tian, why not "stand still" and let God work out your salvation. You cannot bear the burdens of all the world. He can, and will set you free so that you too may go forward for Him. Follow Rules to Make Canning Easy (See Directions Below) Fruit Canning It's time now to begin putting up fruits for next winter and fall to help stretch those ration points and to make sure your family is going to get the two fruits a day required by the nutritional yardstick. Be wise and watch the fruit trees or berry vines or markets--wher- ever you get your fruit--to see that you get it for your canning at Just the ripe stage. Fruits should be firm-fleshed, ripe but not over-ripe and in prime con- dition. Remember canning does not improve any product; it merely pre- serves it for later use, so it fol- lows that you get out of the can only what you put into it. Methods for processing fruit for canning in order of their desira- bility are hot-water bath, pressure cooker, steam cooker, open-kettle. Although many homemakers prefer e open kettl? for the fruits, the degree of spoilage is so high and the vitamin loss so great that it is less desired than processing in the J are. Hot Water Bath. For a hot water or boiling water bath as it is sometimes called, uti- lizea large deep vessel. Fit it with a rack of some kind that will hold the jars inch from the bottom of the canner. Be sure the vessel is deep enough so that when the jar is immersed in the boiling water, the water comes to within 1 to 2 inches over the top of the jar. Place jars on the rack, allowing free circulation of air between the jars. The water should be kept boiling during the entire processing period. If it boils down, particu- larly during some of the lengthy processing times, add sufficient boil- ing water to keep it at the proper height. Oven Canning. Many homemakers like to use the oven for canning fruits and toma- toes. This can be successful if the oven you are using is thermo- statically controlled and will keep the required temperature of 250 de- grees. The jars should be set on a rack at least 2 inches apart--starting with a cold oven. The jars should not be allowed to touch the sides of the oven. If a sec- ond batch of jars is going in after the first batch, the oven does not have to be cooled. After the jars are placed on the rack, turn on the switch or light the oven. Start counting process- ing time as soon as the oven is Lynn Says: Canning Pointers: Most fruits are canned by the cold pack method, but apples, pears, pine- apple and quinces are pro-cooked in their syrups to give them that lovely, transparent look. Most homemakers are using the light syrup--three cups water to one cup sugar--for canning. If you can't afford any sugar, use fruit juices in place of the sugar, and then sweeten the fruit when ready to use. Or, if you can't make up all the Jellies and jams because of lack of sugar, put up the juice and make it into jelly during the winter when you do have sugar. Honey syrup may be used in canning fruits, but expect to have a slightly different flavor to the fruit and somewhat darker ap- pearance. Use a large kettle in cooking honey syrups because they have a tendency to boil over and foam while being coolaed.

Higher tem- peratures cause liquid to boil out of jars and evaporate. Cooling and Testing Jars. If you have used a self-sealing lid on the jars canned, do not in- vert them after taking from the canner. Instead, set them upright on several thicknesses of newspa- per or clean towels, away from drafts and let them cool. After the Jar has thoroughly cooled, remove the screw band and re-use it again and again. TO test for seal, tap the lid of the Jar with a spoon, and if you get a clear, high ringing note you can be certain that the Jar if well sealed. . ....

Fruit Juices. Many homemakers who will be unable to put up all the jellies they would like this summer may put up fruit juices and make them into jelly later. Canning fruit juices ei- ther for jelly or other uses is a fair- ly simple matter, and process- ing is usually done in a hot water bath, at a simmering temperature, 180 degrees F. Flavor of the fruit juices depends upon the fruit selected. The Juice of fully ripened fruit should be used. Partially ripened fruit lacks flavor whereas over-ripe or bruised or de- cayed fruit will make sterilization more difficult. Extracting Juice. The cold process method must not he used if the fruit is extracted for jelly making. It is far better to heat the fruit or berries; Do not add much water, particularly for soft fruits and berries. Simmer at very low heat--do not boil--until the juices start running. Strain the fruit juices through a cotton flannel bag, and fill sterile jars to within inch of the top. Adjust cap, and process in hot water bath for 30 minutes. Working as quickly as possible will save the flavor of the juices and make it more desirable for jelly- making. l] you have a canning problem, write o Miss Lynn Chambers, 'estern Newspaper Union, 210 South Desplaine Street, Chi. cage, Ill.
