PAOB TWO THB LONG ISLAND TRAVELER INKLING S EDITED BY JEAN HAUXX« A lilfe on the Ocean Wave by Epes Sargent A life on the ocean wave, A home on the rolling deep, Where the scattered waters rave, And the winds their revels keepl Like an eagle caged, I pine On this dull unchanging shore: Oh, give me the flashing brine. The spray and the tempest's roar! Once more on the deck I stand Of my own swlft-glldlng craft; Set sail I farewell to the land! The gale follows fair abaft. We shoot through the sparkling foam ; Like an ocean-bird set free;— Like the ocean-bird, our home We'll find far out on the sea. The land Is no longer In view. The clouds have begun to frown; But with a stout vessel and crew, Well say, Let the storm come down!!^ And the song of our hearts shall be While the winds and the waters rave, A home on the rolling sea! A life on the ocean wave! paying a toll charge. We've heard peo- ple tell about their short wave stations. ; [Sometimes after they've talked to ! i someone In another district, struck up ; [quite an acquaintanceship, they pay ' .each other visits. It's very simple, too, ; ;to find a difficult address If you're a •short wave fan. Someone we knew ;sat at home talking to an Impending short wave visitor who carried equip- ;ment In a car — giving traffic dlrec- - tlons til finally the last direction was I—to turn In at the third house from the corncr — you're here! Isn't that ; iservlce! No wonder these short wave - broadcasters are really enthusiastic. Kathleen Norris Says: There Are Ways of Holdinfc Your Husband (Ball Ijrndleat*—VNU 8«rvlc*.i Our poem this week's dedicated to our Long Islanders who spend their life on the rolling sea, following the rise of the ocean wave. It's Spring It's spring. At least the calendar says •so. My own barometric feelings would deny the fact Since spring arrived It's felt more like winter than during win- ter's reign. And we haven't even got- ten our spring coat out of mothballs >et, so that Isn't the reason for our .';hlvers. But in spite of that fact and all the blizzards our headlines tell about, It really Is spring. Any one of these days we'll take a walk and notice that the grass is really green again and that the flowers are beginning to look up around at the world once more. The air will be grand and it'll be a few minutes before we realize why. Yes, it'll be that balmy breeze that means no other season but spring! And what an in- .spiration it Is. There's something nice about this pre-summer season. Perhaps it's that everything is coming out of winter hi- bernation. It is good to leave the win- ter co'its in the closet once more. Just as it's nice to notice the buds turning to apple blossoms on the trees. This L- an out of doors season, too, and that's usually welcome in anyone's language. In fact, on just about every count we'll take spring as our favorite season — at least at this time of the year! By Short Wave Every now and then a voice comes out of the airwaves to tell us what's happening in our home town — on the short wave stations. Someday maybe we'll find out who belongs to that voice! It all sounds very fascinating, this short wave business. One day there'll be a conversation — and It's all like hearing someone on the phone — a one sided affair — between our friend and someone in Connecticut — The next day the conversation will be a three sided one, although we can still only hear one part of it. This short wave business must be fun. It's certainly a hobby with enthu- siastic followers! We've heard all about the putting up of a new tower and the testing of the range which it will cov- er. We've listened to reports on which stations our friends can get best in the daytime, and which at night. Evident- ly it's allright to listen, because once something goes out on the airwaves, it's anyones to listen to! At first we happened on these one sided conversa- tions by accident — they came through a commercial program. Now we go di- aling around looking for them! At times we can pick up quite a few of them from all over the map. But the ones that originate In our town in- terest us most. It must be fun to sit at home and talk to someone miles away without That Dog Again ;: If a dog's life is a merry one, so Is his owner's. In fact, there's a direct • icon-elation! Sometimes, too direct. ; We were reading a poem the other ' day that expressed our sentiments ; iabout dogdom perfectly. It was cen- • tered In a humorous article about our : [canine friends. The little poem was a ; -gem — perhaps you've read It, too — the effect that a nice big steak was reposing on the platter and the carver thereof hoped, his dog wouldn't wake up for a long long time — Reason: If the dog awoke the steak would dimin- ish rapidly — but would add its weight to the carver's pup, not the carver! We agree, a young dog Is always hun- gry! I t wouldn't be so bad If his eyes weren't so big Maybe you don't get the point. But have you ever watched a dog's eyes when his eyes were watch- ing a big steak with one comer of a glance and you with the other three corners? There's something about It that makes you feel like a heel — and a real low one at that, if you just don't hand over a tender morsel. Of course, where one morsel goes, so goes another. And as the poem so rhymlngly put It —as goes one bite, so goes the steak! Of course, the end of the whole mat- ter would be to keep the pup outside, particularly at mealtimes .That would work allright with an ordinary dog. But not with Lem. He knows, and It doesn't matter how odd a mealtime we keep, just when dinner's on the table. He may have wandered far afield in his daily explorations, but at mealtime he's at the door. That would be all- right, too. But he makes himself known. He tells us all too plainly that he wants to come in. If he's asked to please be quiet, he will be quiet, but only for a short few minutes. Then he starts talking again — It's dinner time and he wants to come in. When he does come in he's willing to sit quietly enough in his own spec- ially designated i^ace — and if he doe$ chose to wander a bit, a word will be enough to make him behave. But no one can stop t h a t appeal in his eyes. We defy you to do it. We defy you to resist It, when It's there! Hold That Man! € . It really isn't the task it might seem, this \holding\ your hus- band, according to Kathleen Nor- ris. <1. The main reason that men seek \the other woman\ is that wives become so tied up with home and household duties that they forget friend husband. And if they do remember him they take time to live only \half a life\ with him. C. But if the wife finds herself really neglected because some \charmer\ has led her husband astray, she has two avenues of escape. C. First she can ignore and for- get all about this phase of her husband's life, that is, let him go his way and wake up for him- self some day, or she can go with him on his pleasure trips and throw herself into the spirit of things. This usually shows the erring husband that \the little wife\ can be just as charming as anyone else. t d Fri., Sat. 2 Swell Features Apr. 4 - 5 - 6 SHIRLEY TEMPLE \The Blue Bird\ IN TECHNICOLOR AND THREE CHEERS for the IRISH\ with PRISCILLA LANE : THOMAS MITCHELL Sun., Non., Tue.

Afternoon at 4 jewelry This seems to be what stores call a \big\ season for jewelry. And that jew- elry certainly is new, odd, and differ- ent. All sorts of new materials are on the market, and the people who make jew- elry have been nxaklng the most of them. We saw one necklace that was supposed to represent bluebells — and it surely did. The flowers were made of a blue glasslike substance that look- ed as though It would tinkle merrily — We picked It up, and there was a mer- ry tinkle. Of course, noisy jewelry has been enlivening the landscape all win- ter. But such realistic flowers haven't been. With Leap Year such a wonderful opportunity, all sorts of hearts have come forth In the Jewelry world. We've a little one that's been in our jewel box for years — so we've pulled It forth and' worn it on our sleeve — which cerainly is in keeping both with the year and the trend toward jewelry. We've noticed that the High School girls seem to adore jewelry — the more the merrier. This should be a big year for them — there's lots to choose from -and spring dresses seem to take to jewelry so nicely. And with sports bracelets and pins taking their bow — the spring suit gets to dressing up, too. Snow White\ t f Don't he « nernms. aiisiiicioUM, Miuilivt, injured shadow of Ted. Be a prrtoH your$elf.

By KATHLEEN NORRIS WHE N a woman of 31, mar- ried eight years and mother of a small daughter, begins to be afraid she is losing her hus- band's love, what can she do? \Perhaps I'm not very weU,\ writes Ellhor Baker from a big Illi- nois city, \but lately I seem to be afraid alUhe time that Ted will get tired of and turn somewhere else. Our life and home and rela- tionship seem suddenly to have lost luster, to have gone dull. I had a long bout with flu in Novem- ber; I don't seem to have gotten back strength or spirits. \Ted has formed the habit of go- ing out a good deal without me. It's all pleasant and affectionate enough, but the result is that I feel left out. My mother lives with us, and Ted is really fond of her, I know. She is a wonderful mother; the only one, he says, that he has ever known. The care of Ann and the housework are not too much for the two of us, whejeas I really could not handle it all alone. And for sev- eral years Ted seemed to be one of us, putteAng about, planning things, doing'his %harf. \But for the past few months it is different. 1 can't deceive myself any longer. His interests and amuse- ments are elsewhere. He enjoys his late breakfast Sunday morning, his paper and his romp with Ann in the old way. But at about noon he always has something to do. He must 'see a man,' or t a ke someone somewhere. He and the car dis- appear, and the next thing I hear is from the telephone. Ted and 'some of the others' are out at Billy Car- ey's. They want him to stay for dinner. What do I think? Do As You Like. \Of course I can only think one thing. But what I say is not what I think. I j^ay 'do as you like, dear.' Then he begins to explain. Well, you see, if he comes home now, then there's nobody to bring the Browns home. He'll be early; it isn't a par- ty. And he comes in at about mid- night. \This Billy Carey is a woman 40 years old at least; she isn't a flirt. It isn't that. She has a nice hus- band and two grown boys, and a sort of f a r m, where everyone cooks and loafs about, playing dominoes or listening to the radio. It's all safe enough, so far. But I hate Ted to find so much pleasure away from You go out to Billy Carey's in body, but not in spirit. You watch Ted, rather than watching yourself. You secretly wish that you were back at home, where everything is comfort- able, and you and Mother and Ann have so harmonious a time. Now, you'll have to make up your mind to do one thing or another. One way would be to abandon all thought of Ted and his friends, a s far as you are personally concerned. Rejoice that he has good times with them, and devote yourself complete- ly to Ann and your mother—and, above all, to yourself. Get some simple, becoming frocks, do your hair a new way, read along some directed line of study or take up a language; develop your own person- ality so that everyone, and Ted in- cluded, will notice a change in you. A brightening and quickening; a new interest in life and a new con- tent. In other words, don't be nerv- ous, suspicious, sensitive, injured shadow of Ted. Be a person your- self. That's the way you won him, and that's the way you'll wm him back. The second course, and to me the wiser one, would be to suggest to Ted some day that you go with him when he leaves on Saturday or Sun- home\ T h a t V u'' t r d r s \urb\MoVheri I ,o ^ to Billy's, or wherever Wed., Thur.

' OF MICE AND MEN\ with BURGESS MERIDITH : BETTY FIELDS A Dish for the Week Eggs Supreme 6 egg whites 6 egg yolks unbroken 6 slices of bread Salt and pepper to taste Toast the bread to a light brown color, butter It lightly, and trim the corners if desired. Then beat the egg whites stiff, adding a pinch of salt; pile the beaten white high on the toast slices, and make a shallow well in the center of the top of the white mound. Then drop a whole yolk in each well, place the toasts and eggs on a rack and bake them in a moderate oven (bout 325 degrees Fahrenheit) until the white is a delicate brown color. Re- move them from the oven, drop a small amount of butter on the yolk and serve them hot. A breakfast menu suggested by the New York State College of Home Eco- nomics might be: baked grapefruit halves with brown sugar, eggs supreme, whole wheat toast, milk for the chll- dren, and coffee or milk for the adults. as it does, and we all miss him. Yet I couldn't very well take Ann to these Saturday and Sunday affairs, and if I did it would leave my mother all alone. \It gives' me a hopeless sort of feeling, for Ted is a very attractive man, and b^en if some other woman doesn't get him now, there are all the years ahead, when I simply don't feel equal to holding him, or rather winning him over and over again. If I try to give an informal buffet supper here, somewhat on the order of the Billy Carey plan, it goes flat. If I go along with Ted I have a horrible feeling that they don't want me. I'm always thinking tl^at Moth- er and Ann are at home, missing me, and that I'm not making any hit with Ted by going along with him. Worrying about it is making me lose sleep, and look 10 y e a r s old- er than I am, so if you have any sug- gestion do please send it to me, and I'll be forever grateful.\ . Be Yourself. My suggestion, Elinor, would be that you stop trying to lead two lives. One is your own happy home life with a mother and daughter, which you are doing your best to ruin with fretted thoughts that Ted is having a better time than you are, and that you are losing Ted, and that you have to make yourself different if you hope to hold Ted. The other life is the life you try to share with him so halfiieartedly. else he goes, and instead of sitting mute and unhappy and ignored in a corner, pick out some one person in the group to whom to pay special attention. Be sure it is a neglected person. Find a game you two like to play. Or, if it is Billy's mother, who is getting lunch ready for the crowd, just make yourself quietly useful, draw her into talk with you; forget yourself, and especially for- get Ted, as much as you can. A New Course. Some years ago a quiet little neg- lected wife on a noisy house party entered into conversation with the 12-year-old son of the house, who was equally overlooked. He had been given a r a t h e r elaborate game ,that he didn't understand; she got him to bring it down, and studied the rules with him. Presently they began playing it, and a casual on- looker joined them. The onlooker was the Ted type, and presently the group was gathered about watching. It wasn't much, but it carried the mousey wife through one evening. She and the boy had planned a picnic for the next day. Lonely and shy, he was wild with excite- ment over the idea of a beach lunch, a fire, chops to be broiled. One or two other guests asked if they might go; in the end they all went, and the quiet little woman managed the whole thing and gave orders and for- got that she had ever been anything but the ringleader. This was the end of her \mousey\ career. T HA T may b e news t o you, but certainly it isnH news that the fastest, safest, meet dependable way to town is by train.
