A Direct Attack on Idleness »Y By BRUCE CATION NBA Editorial Writer && k &IBENT ROOSEVELT'S scheme for enrolling 250, (f00;men in a peace-time army for a direct attack on un- totjis about as complete a departure from accepted t .. -m, America "as could be imagined. Mvyet—such is the temper of the country today—that 'act'is helping to win public support for the measure. ' far, in,our fight with unemployment, we have follow- pld' traditions and .they haven't wo'rked. Merely to see dem tacgked 'from an entirely new angle is encourag- eadership which is not afraid to do something never fore in^this country seems to stand a pretty v good getting somewhere. inwhile the plan is deeply interesting. "! ,,;,,-,-- one thing, it ought to help sift the wheat from the ;haff in the various metropolitan breadlines. '« . ^'XTJie'industrious' and 1 energetic citizen who 4s~unemployed irpaj£hjfa,:fault of his own and who subsis'ts^ori'chairty'be'- e he has to and not because he wants to—this chap can )e expected to jump at the chance to join the army without iunsj' But the.loafer, the gimme-a-dime-please-mister drifter fwholwould rather panhandle than work—he will not be re- lUctant to give up his warm flop-house corner for a steady |year of honest toil; and his very reluctance will help expose <•- -' n ^ , v , ., - . «•• , ;«' Our cities will know a^good deal more about the men they supporting when the recruiting campaign for this army ftsover., ji the second place, the whole scheme has a freshness and ^directness that make it exciting. _ v (l It puts, the government into a direct frontal assualt on S'iinejnployment. There is, as President Roosevelt points out, jrjfc vast amount of work that the government ought to do; there ^is also a vast number of men who need work very badly. This the work and the men together in a definite and tstraightfoward way. It gives action to a nation that wants fraction. It is as welcome a thing as has been suggested in ^Washington this spring. A New "Soviet Menace" certain of our country's senators goes the palm for the most horrendous discovery of the year. •f Certain of these law-givers, according to current advices pfrom Washington, have discovered that the pending farm re- bill contains a deeply hidden but terrifying "Soviet menace/' 1 .- This jnay partially due to the fact that any government whicfi really makes a determined effort to improve the living H Conditions of a large mass of the population is apt to seem more "or Jess Communistic to a certain type of mind. But the •dispatches relate that it is chiefly due to the fact that Dr. jyfordecai Ezekiel, economic adviser to the secretary of ag- yiculture, once spent a whole month in Russia. ', , Now that the terrible secret is out, one trust that the sen- !',,ators who dug it up will not feel hurt if they discover that no but themselves is very much excited about it.

HOW GO OX WITH THF. STORY CHAPTER XXXI I T was Betty who spoke. She said, "Oh — you're my mother's secretary, I suppose! I'm Mrs. Carlyle and this ia my husband. You'llflnd my mother upstaira." She turned,- as though dismissing a servant, and' sat down on the "davenport. Janet said, "How do you do," and then, "Thank you/' in a voice that was not quite so uncontrolled as It seemed to her. Then she was gone but there had, been time 'for her to note the puzzled surprise on Rolf's face and then see It disappear almost Immediately. Betty was saying as Janet left them, "But of course it's the best way. Everything's all settled ! Hand me a Cigarette, darling—" Blindly, iseekfng only one thing In the world-^-escapei-— Janet ran up the stairs. She reached tho top ot the flight, turned toward tier room and then Mrs, Curtis' yolce stopped her. ,. ...•!...,.« (J '- "Oh— Janet!". ^'•••,V|'itV' '' Mrs. Curtis came, hurrying 'down the hall. "Theyjre here!" ehe exclaimed. , "Bett# and) her ' husband. "''They didn't go' to New Ypfk after all. Oh, I'm so excited!" Her face was flushed and she was beaming. Janet thought of . what Dr. Roberts had said. v "No excitement." But what could she -' do? • It was happiness that :mad& - Mrs. Curtis so radiant. Better for her to have been prepared for the •, homecoming but It was too late •to do. anything about that now.'-' "Yes, I saw them," Janet told her. y "In the living room. : Misa Dursham sent the drapery samples and I was looking for you — ;'< ' • "Put them In my room," Mrs. Curtis said. "I can't look at them now. And, Janet, don't say anything about the apartment, please! I'm going to tell them about it this evening. I want It to be a complete surprise!" "Mrs. Curtis, aren't you going to have your afternoon rest? •Don't you think you'd better — " "Rest? With so much to think about, so much to do? Oh, 1 couldn't! I've already spoken to Bertha about the dinner. She's getting Betty's room ready now. And I want you to telephone Miss Dursham that everything will have to be rushed! Tell her to pall me In the morning.. 1 ' , ' " J ANET agreed. nnd went on 'down _. .. the )tf U to - her room. Jliss Dursnam ctfnld wait, srte the door behind her and lank into the big chalf where many iihotheir stormy battle had been waged, She had to decide what to d6 now. Jahet felt caught, 9h* had assured herself It would b« so easy to slip away before R6lf and this girt hd had married re* turned. But Rolt was in thW house now. Downstairs. She saw again that look ot lurprlse on his face as she entered the living room. How quickly, how easily be had veiled it! All nt once Janet's head dropped to her arm and ,her shoulders shook with sobs. What was the use of pretending? Rolt waa stilt the man she loved and he always would be. The hot tears smarted on her cheeks. She wiped them away but there were more tears, "Oh, Rolf!" her heart cried out, "Oh, Ro«— P* And so she arose several minutes later With nothing settled.. She'would have to go away. But when? What was she to tell Mrs. Curtis? Janet didn't settle any of these questions. She bathed he? eyes with cold water and used powder and sonie rouge to Cover tho pallor of her cheeks, i Then she went downstairs to the little room back of. the library and telephoned to Miss Dursham. She didn't See F(olt ^pr J Betty either again that evening. Janet's dinner was served In her room. She asked Lucy to bring the eve^ nlng newspaper and read down the column headed, "Help Wanted /—Female." There was nothing very promising. "Girl for general'and care of children," the first advertisement read. And .then, "Girl for general housework," "House? keeper, part time," "Houseworkj general, experienced," "Piano accompanist for singer." There Was one advertisement' that read, "Salesladies and canvassers. Must have $10 cash bond." ; . , , !•••.•' •:'•'.' .».':• ..•:' T>OT there was not a single re- .quest for an experienced: secretary. There were no advertisements calling for office workers of any sort. Janet wasn't a piano accompanist nor a saleslady nor .a canvasser., Sher couldn't even show ; a [referent^ for general houeswork and most of the advertisements called for references. "Maybe there'll 'be : something tomorrow morning;" she thought hopefully and put the newspaper aside. . . . '.•••••. There, ; were...no^advertisements -.tor' secretaries ; 6r' stenographers or typists in the morning paper, "Helpt Wanted^Female" read much as it; had the. night before, Janet? decided ^a" c«ll, a"t an employment 'agency .the -next time she was^down town, v But she didn't. For two days she scarcely left the house; Betty's arrival catapaulted the household Into new schedules and new activity. Janet scarcely had a word with Mrs. Curtis in private. There were telephones ringing and visitors dropping in and Mrs. Curtis and Betty driving off for luncheons and teas. There were invitations to be issued for the dinner Mrs. Curtis was to give in honor ot her daughter and her son-in-law. There were notes to be answered and notes to be written and engagements to be cancelled and engagements to be made. For a week or until the new apartment would be ready Betty and Rolf were to remain with Mrs. Curtis. Aside from the extra work Janet was surprised to flnd how Mttle this changed her owu routine. She scarcely saw I i • nt timing* «ti« And was at her Work before h« Appeared, Belt*'* breufcfftgt «•• felwaya ser«d to her la bed *na Mrs. Curtis began to «dopt th« « plan. In the evening fl«ttf. noli usually went ont for dill* iier or it they were At borne th«r« Were guests and Jltet dined Alone, She began to think le»» ot go* Ins away, For one thing, th«t« was no place to go. No place but back to Mrs. silyder'* boarding house and a search for work thai seeltied hopeless. She waa buay here and Bhe had forced h«rs«U to believe that It only she eoild keep busy enough aha could for' get. Beside* it waa evident that, Rolt wished to avoid her aa much ns she wanted, to avoid him. In a few dnys more he and Betty would be gone and things wpujd be as they had been. , ~^^ • » • • *| >mi ! T was Betty Oarlyle who com*. pletcly dominated the honsc- liold. Though Janet saw her only occasionally It was Betty and not Mrs. Curtis for whom most of the telephone edits came and moat of the appointment* Were made. Janet told herself that she WM Unfair. She tried to make allow- nnces but she .could not bring herself to like this pretty, pampered, strong-willed daughter to whom Mrs. Curtis was so devoted. There was "no doubt that Betty was popular with the young men and Women of her "crowd." The telephone calls, the swank roadsters parked before the door nnd the- dinner engagements proved that. At any time of the day or night it seemed Betty might arrive home with a group of noisy guests. If It were at night Rolf would be with them. Otherwise Betty never seemed to lock for escorts. ••' Her clothes were beautiful and yet she talked a good dear about "being In rags" and she and Mrs. Cnrtls went on shopping trips. Remembering Dr. Roberts' instructions Janet worried about this. She was sure, too, that the noisy crowds coming and going at nil hour* must disturb Mrs. Ourtio and Interfere with her rest. When she tried tactfully to nfontlon this her employer, brushed her fears away. "Young people are only young once!" Mrs. Curtis said. "I want Betty to/enjoy everything while she can." .It was plain to be seen that young Mrs. Carlyle regarded 'Janet as,merely, another servant.' Her position seemed slightly above mat of Lucy, the maid, and slightly below that ot Charles, thefhairdresser:;: Betty told her mother she; thought it quite unnecessary for Frederick to take th'e car:out \V.hen Janet had errands down town. What were the busses for? It had a bad effect on servants, Betty said, to treat them as equals. She was Impatient with her mother more than once on this score. It was toward the end of that Grst week that Janet came Into the house late in the afternoon. She was wearing her gray suit and the little green hat. She had been walking and the exercise had put color Into her cheeks. Janet stepped into the living room to leave some magazines. She laid them on a table with the others. All at once she heard a sound behind her and turned. Rolf Carlyle was standing a few. feet away. He smiled and said, "Well. Janet, aren't you glad to see me?"- (To Be C-VntlnnedX , A BOUT all that one can .say concerning the arrest of Char- Jes IS.

Saenger Thursday and Friday and opening with a bargain matinee Thursday afternoon at 2:30 is going to cause a whale of a lot of discussion among the women, according to Loretta Young. All because, William, whose God appears to be business success, has adopted the creed, that "a wife handicaps a man in his efforts toward success.' Because of this creed, he refuses to let his assistant, played by Wallace Ford, mary his sweetheart, played by Loretta Young. This results in a most unusual series of complications, that make for exceptional screen entertainment. ' "The women," says Loretta, "arc going to rise up in arms, when they hear this. However, it should be borne in mind that all of William's own success came to hini after he was married, so his theory in. the picture shpuld not be held against him. He's a great believer in marriage as a means toward success." An "Our Gang" comedy and "Hollywood on Parade" complete the program. ' .
