One thousand dollars and the Kate
Smith national hero award were be-
stowed Thursday night upon Mrs.
Bernice Weber, formerly of Ann Ar-
bor, for her courage in saving four of
her seven children from the burning
Horseshoe Lake Cottage in which the
three others perished Sept. 27.
Mrs. Weber, who was severely
burned in her rescue efforts, received
$250 a month ago when her story
was dramatized and she was intro-
duced to the radio audience on Miss
Smith's program. The rehabilita-
tion of the family has been aided by
contributions of more than $600 fromj

22 Miles Of Pipe Needed f
Twenty-two miles of pipe would

conduit as against 110 miles which
would have to be put in to reach

cost of laying pipe is $6,000 per mile,
From a standpoint of supply, the
Texas fields clearly hold the upper
hand. Their reserve is expected to
last 20 years. A conservative esti-
mate places the total remaining at
20 trillion cubic feet. The supply
in Michigan is estimated at 100 bil-

Shirley's Best Picture - A Hit for Everyone!












PAUL MUNI "Life of Emile Zola"


H E Business Statistical Bureau recently asked 150,000 newspaper

readers to name their favorite columnist. They were carefully selected to
constitute a representative cross-section of intelligent public taste. Their
first choice was Heywood Broun, for his column IT SEEMS TO ME.
So readers' ballots confirm our editorial judgment that Broun is one of
the most interesting, stimulating, vivid minds writing in America today.
Whether it's about the League of Nations or Joe Louis, about painting or
poker-playing IT SEEMS TO ME has invariably something new to Say,
and says it in a new way.
