What Was It Alt About? On .1 blubtciy, fiosl-biling morning leienlly, the domnun at Uic Kdgc- \\alei Beach Hotel in Chicago turned to a passing bellhop and said, "Seems mighty lonely heie today." He meant that the pickets were KOM. —the pickets who had patrolled Ihe ho- lel's> pasbAgew «iy night and day for six yeais until they had become a.s fa- miliai to the iiCigaboihooc! na I lie cor- nei cop Thev ueic gone, at last, because \\Jialevei it «as they lia<l been pakoling ovei had been settled. Most people, including tlie pickets, couldn't remember offhand what the dispute was about—except' Dial their signs said the hotel was "unfair to organ- t ized lubor," , Aftei a \\hile, bomume recalled that the electricians had go)>c out on a .slrik-j in February, 193't, after they had been lefused a monthly pay increase of ?28 Waiters and bartenders went out iif sympathy Someone else thought that the pimeipal issue involved was the right of recognition of the A. I 1 ', of L. unions in the hotel Whatevei it was, representatives of the hotel and union leaders got logeth- ci iccently, sat aiouiul a table, came to an agicement and called off the pickets Someone "-aid the six-year ges- Ime had cobt the unions $800,000 in picketing wages and other expenses. Union* leaders declined to reveal the terms of the settlement. A rcprcscn- Uli\e of the hotel manageineijU'sijiil that \to concessions were given—everything \KS just as it always was except that the pickets have left. .In a way, one can t• help but admire the peisevciant spuit of the pickets and the union involved. Six years is a long lime to be walking around in front of 1 the same hotel. But actually, how much was gamed- that couldn't have been gained six years ago by silting around the same table? The pickets long ago had ceased to attract, attention. They had become part of the scenery. They -belonged in front of the hotel as much as the doorman did. Jf the picketing did no damage to the hotel during the early months, icitaml.t it did none Miring the ensuing yeais Labor has every right lo picket in piotest against uniusl treatment. It has also the right to picket when it ^ants lo call attention to a dispute and to point out its grievances. Presumably,- there was nothing illegal about the- Chicago picketing. If there had been, the pickets would have been dispersal long ago , But nov, successful was this endur- ance' picketing project-? Practically, what was accomplished, cither in enhancing the prestige of the union movement or in benefiting individual members? How do the rank and file of union members feel about spending $300,000 lo uphold a somewhat dubious principle? If both sides were able lo settle the matter by conference a little while ago, they could have done it six years age. Pinns Tuxt '(^u Tlic Finnish people haven't, forgotten llial, behind all the Imilality, Juo Stalin still slicks to his avowal that he is sending culture to the "backward" [''inns. Stealing an idea from American radio (|mV, programs, a Finnish station recently .selected live Russian prisoners at random and gave them a brief intelligence lest while the world listened. The prisoners included a medical captain, an air captain, two sub-lieutenants, <twl one lieutenant. A few of the questions were: "Who WHS Beethoven'.'" "Who \vas the lirsl cvar of the UomniiolV d y n a s t y ?'' "Wliei'c was peace concluded after I'm. 1 last war?" The questions drew complete blanks. It's not going to be easy for Slalin to push that kind of evidence aside. Prctly smart people, these Finns— at the front and behind the lines.

Had the people of that distant era been able to foresee the events of today, they might have given more serious consideration to the following proposed constitutional amendment, approved by Congress but rejected by enough shies to kill it: "If any citizen of Inc United States sliall ncccpl. claim, receive or retain any Mile of nobility or honor, or shall, without the consent of Congress, accept and retain any' prescm, pension, office or emolument, of any khtd whul- cvcr, from any emperor,, kimj, prince '.or foreign .power, such -pers.on shall cc-iise to; tic a citr/ch'of (he Uirile'd' Slates and shall'be in- cnp'ablR of holding any office of Inisl- or profit under them or cither of them." / Had the amendment passed 130 years ago, it might have proved a bit lough for modern heiresses who collect foreign titles and who value their American citi/.enship.

While her first impulse was to rush and tell her father, her second was to hold back. But meanwhile she wanted the way paved. She was not entirely certain how her father fell about tho Donovans. She knew lie had been on the opposing side in several business deals with Mike. She also knew that the Marlins wc ' re a pace ahead of tho Dono. vans socially. Still, Mike Donovan having a nice early morning visitPV 88 a vel 'y ''i*-' 1 ' man, perhaps even witli you." She sal down in chair opposite him. "You're such a busy man, I jiever have a chance to really talk with you." .lames Martin beamed. He was vciy fond of his only child, and it pleased him lo have her want to be with him. "How would you JIKC a little j holiday with me? I've got to go to South America on a business trip in a couple or weeks'." Like so many American men of his type, Martin had a matter-of- fact, well-caved lor face, a little richer than her father. "What do you think of Dan Donovan, Daddy?" she repeated But Mr. Martin did not hear. The phone was ringing. "For you, sir,' 1 said the butler "your office is calling." lie hurried out of the room. "I asked you what you thought of- Dan Donovan, Daddy," she pouted when ho returned, "and you didn't answer." "Oil, yes.. Well he's all right, I guess," Martin answered abstractedly. "Sorry, pet, I have t< too self-indulgent, pci haps,'about ' usl1 o(r sooner than I expected.'

THIS CURIOUS WORLD By William Ferguson HICH IS THE LONGEST OP OUR | the small, shrewd blue eyes, but generally benign. Filly-five, he delighted in lolling the men under him in the vast grocery chain store company which lie headed, (hat he still fell like a hid of 21. As a boy he had boxed in nm- aleuv bantam bouts at the Athletic C'lub. lie f(i!I belonged lo the Athletic Club though Lynda and his sister-in-law, Mrs. William iMarlin, were always trying lo persuade him to shift his'patron- age to the Racquet and Tennis. Ordinarily indulgent, as far as Lynda was concerned, he drew tho line there. He never felt quite at ease with (he Racquet and Tennis Club fellows, although, as he often told himself, he could buy and sell them all oul, hall' a dozen times, and never miss the money. Lynda poured a gc-nerous amount of cream over a crystal dish of hothouse raspberries the butler set before her. "Ordinarily I'd love to go with you Daddy," she hesitated prettily, "but right now, well—I'll tell you a little later. He looked "What's up?" "Oil, al her sharply. ic mumbled (o himself every few ninues, "His girl not good enough ij or my boy. Well, we'll see." kl His first impulse when lie led »| he pier was lo go back home and J ell Dan what he thought ot a £| ,<irl wlio hart a father like Bat La Porte. But he changed liis nind, Instead ho gave Dan the 4 benefit of his opinion over thu ilione, then hurried on lo sec \ nothing." She sprinkled the iVaspberrics with powderec sugar. "Mr. Donovan was here lasl/nisht and you weren't in." Amazement spread over, -Martin's, face. "Mike Donovan—what did ue want?" "Oh, he was just calling." Lynda Ic gulped his coffee. "We'll talk ibout young Donovan another .ime." ! Lynda finished her breakfast and went back to bed but she could not rest. She had slept lit- le Ihe nighl before thinking of Dan. She wanted to believe, more :lum anything eke in the world, that Dan would marry her and yet, in her heart of hearts, she doubted the truth of his father's words. Tossing on her bed, she dug her beautiful long-pointed fingernails into the'palms of her- liitle hands. Maybe Dan didn'l want to many her, but after all, lie might )iol have much to say about it. His father was on her side, which was something. A lap on the door broke in on her though Is. "What is it?" phe called. "Mr. Donovan, Miss Lynda," the butler said. "Mr. Daniel Donovan?" She jumped out of bed. "No, his father, Mr. Michael Donovan." The corners of her mouth turned down, then up again. "Very well, Perkins. Tell him I'll sec him in a few minutes." She rang for her maid, i lie was so excited that he hard- 5| ly knew whal he would say when no did find her except lo repeat .hat he wanled Dan to marry her, jl jut now, schemes were formulal- jJ ing in hia mind. He would not j'l only give his approval of Ihe match but lie would help Lynda land Dan. Milie held out his hand as I,yn- ; | da entered the room. "You and I arc becoming pretty good friends, my dear." T-ooJfing pale and Jielpless in a soft blue crc-pe, she put both her hands in his. "I'm so glad you've come. Tell me aboul Dan.' He drew up a chair near hers-. "Thai's just why I'm here again," he'began. "I want to give that liitle dinner tonight for you and Danny . . ." A discreet cough interrupted Ih cm. 'Tlie afternoon paper, Miss Lynda." Perkins handed it to her apologetically. "1 didn't know but whal you and Mr. Donovan would wanl fo see il first." She stared at the butler. "What on earth," she began, then stopped as her eyes caught the headlines. "Look, Mr. Donovan," she cried nervously. "This is aboul Dan."

Ihe Hcallli iUiiKiumc Cue of the greatest blessing ot j mankind—placed by many observers as number one in all the accomplishments ot .scientific medi- cine—is the development, of anesthesia for Ihe relict of pain. The ancient Greeks knew Unit there were mixtures ot herbs or drugs which ctiild be taken by mouth and produce unconsciousness. The famous father of surgery, Pare, knew of the "Gentlemen, this is no humbug." On the next, day he did another operation, removing a tumor of the shoulder. The results were publish- cd in .t^cvember. 1840, and since tliat time the uses of anesthesia have been steadily developed so that today people no longer need possibility of dcuilcnln? pain.
