Labor's Friend in the Cabinet By BRUCE CATTON NBA Editorial Writer " ' Bl'ftiS dne of the ironies of fate that Frances Perkins, whose x!»ppointment as secretary of labor -was objected to violently ' ^spokesmen for organized labor, should turn out to be the anchest and most effective friend labor has ever had in a (l,esidehf s cabinet. d'/ s ltis not merely that Miss Perkins Is seeking the same !.W>jectives that labor is seeking. Her conception of her job elf is the important thing. V^Her theory js that the secretary of labor is put into the ibinet ;to be organised labor's spokesman. If labor is to A voice in the high councils of the government, the labor ^iry must be the mouthpiece. 4 *To 'realize what a complete departure this theory is accepted practice, you need only look back over the rec- of the' labor secretaries during the past dozen years. Nor is that .all. Miss Perkins not only feels that she must •light- labor's battles; she is not in the least backward about ^napping out "a definite, program which goes miles beyond ;ainythirtg that Has been seriously considered before. 'She is .rapidly establishing as an administration prin- ihe belief that true prosperity must rest on the prosper- of the . workers themselves — that good times cannot Icjde down from above, but must be built up from the very m, and that one of society's prime duties is to see to it its workers get a fair break. , In line 'with this belief, she is trying to do two things; Ito get the unemployed hooked up with jobs, and to make Ftain that those who have jobs get a decent amount of pay r their work. , 'N^or'is that all. By the cool determination with which e has tackled her work she has put new life into the whole ^organized labor movement in America. She has helped lidify it, she has given it a program and she has enormously increased its influence. M/, When labor's spokesmen look back at the protests which ; her appointment drew from them, they must feel more than ft i bit silly. No Self-Made Men are no self-made men. People.are made by people, i by instances, by circumstances and grasped opportunities. Everything that is helpful, inspiring, interesting does something to make .a man. v r Everything with whom we come in contact each day does [, something to make us what we are. We owe a debt of grat- *,ityde to every human being, to every flower that grows, to "every tree, to every rock, to every song spurted from the .glorious throat of every bird. Wherever beauty is, there is : f a contribution to all that we are. We can put our fingers on no single thing and say that us. Surely we cannot say that we made ourselves we are. The greatest man is he who gives the greatest amount - of credit to others for what success he has achieved. There is no finer character in this world than the ap- man or woman. Keep giving credit if you would be happy and grow. A man shrinks just the moment he throws out his chest and says: "See what I have done." He should say: "See what others have done." You who work for someone else, never forget that you get vastly more each week than what is contained in your Bay envelope. You are actually getting dividends from the investment of hunger, discouragement, failures and the iron heart of him who employs you. No matter how resourceful, energetic and successful you be, you are not self made, but other-made.— Natchez .) Democrat, So They Say ! J do not desire to Jive in a country or belong to a coun- where the rights of all citizens are not respected and freedom of speech among teachers is not accorded. — Albert Einstein, German scientist.

J.-(/P)—Had Com. F. C. MeCord, skipper of the ill-fated U. S. 'S, Akron, ordered "any other course except that taken in the last few minutes," the Nnvai Court of Inquiry was told : Thursday, the huge silver dirigible "might have avoided the turbulent atmosphere" in the vortex of the storm that dashed it to destruction. The tes;;:nony came from Lieut. Charles J. Magu|re, chief" aerologist at the naval air station here, and created a stir of excitement in the courtroom that had heard Lieut. Com. H. V. Wiley, second In command on the Akron, declare he had suggested a westward course to MeCord when the storm svas sighted. Weather research since the disaster, Maguire said, convinced him that the thunderstorm which doomed the Akron did not extend westward of the Washington-Newark airlines. The court heard from Capt. Anton Heinen, German Zeppelin expert who has the reputation of b?ing the "man who taught the navy how to fly" lighter-than-air craft. Heinen, stressing that he was not criticizing the Akron's officers, tokl the court "even under the circumstances which the Akron encountered, the accident could have been avoided."

"We've found the necklace." "Oh!" The women's voices came In a chorus. Betty Carlyle was leaning eagerly forward, Mrs. Curtis, severe and rigid in her straight- backed chair. "Where did you find it?" Retty asked. "What did slio do with It? I mean—V" "I'll answer all your questions," the detective told her. "lint lirst take a look at this." He reached into his pocket, drew out a small black case and handed it to her. "See U that's your necklace," he said. The lid of the box sprang open at Betty's touch. Inside on a square of white satin lay a strand of pearls. Betty held them up to the light, smiling. "Of course it is," she said. "I've n^ver seen any others with a clasp like this." McKewaa nodded, "i found them Jn a pawn shop," he said. "A pawn shop!" Mrs. Curtis interrupted. "I think I'd better call Janet," she said. "Yes, bring her In!" Betty uod- ded eagerly.

Janet followed ber Into the room, paused and looked questioningly toward Mrs. Curtis. "Sit down, Janet," the older woman said. "Mr. McKewan has found the necklace." Janet saw the bos lying open on the table and stepped forward. Her pale face was suddenly transformed. "Oh, I'm so glad!" she exclaimed. "I'm so glad!" • • • T3ETTY CARLYLE darted a swift -glance at the other girl and. •frowned) McKewan -cleared «bts i throat. "Well." he said. "1 thought j maybe you'd rather we talked It j over In private but if this Is the ' way you want it, all right. The j necklace was In a pawn shop down '' on Mulberry street. Been there; nearly a week. You see, we were ! sure it was an amateur job so this j morning, Just on a chauee, - we i checked tlie pawn shops. Found It' in the second place we went. The i fellow who runs the shop told us j ! a man brought the necklace In last i ! Monday." ; "You say It was a man?" Mrs. : Curtis asked. . "Yes," McKewan hesitated. "I guess there's no reason to beat' around the bush about it," he went on. "It was your husband, Mrs. i Carlyle." i "My husband?" Betty's eyes: were like two angry lires. "Not j Rolf! Oh, no, he couldn't—!" The detective nodded.. "I'm ; afraid there isn't any question j about it," ho said. "I've already ] talked to him. It .seems there were | some debts lie had to pay. In a hurry. He didu't want anyone to know about it," "You mean—lie admitted It?" "Oh, yes. Nothing else for him to do. He'd used another name on the ticket but it was easy enough to trace. As soon as" I talked to him ho admitted the whole story. Pretty badly worried, I guess." Mrs. Curtis had found her volco. "Oh, Betty!" she exclaimed, ".My poor little girl!" "He said," McKewan went on, "that ho didn't really mean to take the necklace. lie was going to put it buck just as soon as ho could get the motiey. Said ho didn't think you'd miss it. The pawn broker only allowed him $i!00 on it." Betty Carlylo was on her feel. "A thief!" she moil. "Oh, my Uod! Lying to me. .Stealing. He's beta gambling and lost again, that's what lie's done. I told him the last j time I wouldn't give him another I cried. "I'm sick of the sight of him and I never want to see him again. I won't forgive him for this as long as I live. Never! Never! Never!" Over-wrought emotion had Its way. Betty sank into u chair, sobbing violently. Her mother bent over her, murmuring comforting phrases, stroking her shoulder and trying to quiet her. The detective shifted uncomfortably in his chair and looked about the room. All at ouce lie sprang lorward. "She's fainted!" lie exclaimed. The two women turned. Janet Hill's eyes were closed.

Betty was surveying herself In the full-length mirror. She wore a black dress with a scarlet bow on one shoulder. There were no sleeves. It was a dress she often wore to dinner parties. "Why, yes, I'm here," slie said coolly. "Where have you been?" Rolf entered the room. "1 thgught maybe you'd be at your mother's," he said. His voice soanded strained. "1 couldn't go there. Betty—I didn't really mean to do it! I mean—the way it looks. 1 thought I'd have the money oack in a few days. You hardly ever wear that necklace and 1 was sure I'd have it back before you'd miss it. 1 had to get the money to pay Tom Jamicson. Uon'l you see, Betty—?" She turned to meet his gaze directly. "I see pert'eclly!" she said. "Everything. I see that you're a lying, sneaking, good-for-nothing and that's all you'll ever be. 1 see that you've lied to me and humiliated me but you won't have a chance to do it again." "Betty! Won't you listen to me? I tell you I didn't mean to take the necklace. I've put in the most horrible day I've ever spent in my life, I've been through bell. My Uod, Betty, I've said I'm sorry.

You've never supported me since the day we were married. Why. I could divorce you a dozen times! Oh, I know what I'm doing—I've been talking to a lawyer this afternoon." "You really mean that?" She picked up a wrap and drew it around uer shoulder. A small velvet bag lay on the dressing table and she picked that up, too. "Frederick's down stairs with mother's car," she said. "Maybe you noticed. If you have anything else to say to me get in touch witu Trumbell and Scliaeffer. They're my lawyers." Rolf took her arm.

PAUL, Minn— (JP)— Lack of go- to-meeting clothes or of money for the collection box should keep no one from attending church. So says the Rev. Paul Lindemann, paster of Redeemer Lutheran church [and editor of the "American Luther, 'an," in apcaling to his parish to "permit no unjustified feeling of pride ''and personal dignity to bring about a cleavage between you and God." "We cannot construe the tendency to remain away from church because of financial stress," he says, "as anything else but an insinuation of Satan." "After all," he says, "a Christian church is not a business institution in which a church member is entitled to just so many of the benefits as he or she can pay for, but a church is a depository of the means of grace to which al^lhc needy souls of men are invited and to which all have unlimited access, irrespective of their financial conditions."

Referendum May DelayTax Relief Four-Year Extension Act Would Be Stopped by Cities, Schools LITTLE ROCK.—A statewide movement headed by city and school officials has been begun to file petitions with the secretary of state for a referendum for Act 280 of 1933. which would extend time for redemption of lands forfeited for non-payment of taxes to four years, with a reduction in penalty to three per cent. Alarm over reports from many county colectors that few persons are paying taxes this year because of Act 280 caused the movement, it was reported. Should the petitions be filed by June 8, the act would be inoperative until its submission to the voters at the general election in November. 1934.

Michigan and Indiana, the days when all men's faces were turned west and a boisterous, turbulent hope was in the air. Its central character is a young man from Baltimore who comes out to claim a thousand acres near the Mau- mcc river, west cf where Toledo now stands. He comes as a romantic adventurer, and he quickly finds that pioneering is :i grim, bcdy-breaking business; but he sticks to it, and pros. Ontly he founds a wilderness ...town, building it up by sheer determination and force of will. The town'? rise makes a colorful story. The settlers fight a pitched battle with United States troops for heir homcscads. A group of "fancy ladies" comes to the town—and dissolves when the daughters of joy marry their clients. Boon times come, banks issue a flood of wildcat banknotes, the town becomes a little city, and the unscrupulous ward politics the future begin to take shape. Then comes the deflation—and most of the settlers head west again, firm in their belief that beyond the next hill there is n fairer land. Our town- builder starts from scratch once more. The frontier has passed on; the future is to be soberer, solider, more comfortable—and less exciting. Published by the Viking Press. "New Road" is priced at J2.50.

The driver, Saft, is convinced of the genuineness of her pleas. Soon they are deeply in love. But Raft begins paying attention lo a wealthy socialite. Sylvia, sure that it is because they arc not married, goes to a lawyer and finds she can readily secure am annulment of her marriage to he convict-husband.

SISTER MARYS KITCHEN BY SISTER MARY NEA Service Writer Although fritters come under the category of fried foods they arc not too difficult of digestion if properly cooked. A propetly cooked fritter is fried in deep fat at a certain definite temperature. And the temperature of the fat determines the digestibility of the fritter. If the fat is too hot. a hard crust is formed on Hie outside which acts as a non-conductor of heat and the outside gets darker and harder while the inside remains doughy and uncooked. If on the other hand the fat is not hot enough the fritter sinks to the bottom of the kettle, refuses to come to the top, absorbs too much fat and remains pale and soggy. The correct temperature is between 3GO and 230 degrees Fahrenheit. If a thermometer is not at hand an inch cube of bread from the soft part of the loaf can be dropped into the hot fat. It should turn a golden brown in sixty seconds. Fritters are so quickly and easily prepared and cooked and are so helpful in making "a little go a long way" that they are worthy of consideration. There are vegetable fritters and meat fritters which make splendid main dishes. The sweet fritters and fruit fritters are delicious desserts to serve with maple syrup or a contrasting fruit sauce. An excellent standard rule for fritter batter is the following: Fritter Batter One egg, Vis teaspoon salt, ',2 cup milk, 1 tablespoon melted butter, 1 cup flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, I to 2 cups added material. Beat egg until light with salt nnd Tomorrow's Menu Breakfast: Stwed prunes, cereal, cream, plain omelet, crisp toast, milk, coffee.

Prohi Repeal Men Call State Meet Prepare for Campaign Against 18th Amendment July 18 LITTLE ROCK—A meeting of Ar. kansans who favor repeal of the Eighteenth amendment was to be held Thursday afternoon at the Hotel Marion for the purpose of organizing re- pea! forces preparatoy to the state election July 18 on ratification of the repeal amendment, it was announced by Harry B.

"We expect represenattive citizens from every section of the state to attend the conference. "While we arc moivated by the conviction that repeal of the amendment is.favored by a majority of the people we will be in position to show the people of Arkansas some inteersting facts and figures having a direct bearing on our economic situation. For one thing, legalized beer is being sold on three sides of us and the loss of trade and governmental revenue will be a serious blow. It looks like we are standing in our own light in this respect. New Currency Not Really Inflation It Merely Converts Bank Deposits Into Circulating Exchange By J. R. BRACKETT Associated Press Correspondent NEW YORK— (IP)— Expansion of the currency does not necessarily • mean inflation of the nation's money supply. This is because bank deposits, not currency, constitute the bulk of the money. Bank deposits at the calling of the'bank holiday were-about $40,000,. 000,000; money In circulation, including currency, about $6,700,000,000. This is-a total of 546,700,000,000. Distinguished From Inflation If this sum were increased beyond the nation's economic needs or increased artificially, there would be inflation. In the present situation currency expansion is planned only to the extent necessary to satisfy the demands of bank depositors. Thus, if, on the reopening of the banks, the people withdrew ?2,000,000,000, money in circulation would increase to $8,700,000,000, but this same §2,000,000,000 would be withdrawn from bank deposits and the total of all money—bank deposits and money in circulation—would be the same. Currency expansion might be inflation if the government simply issued it and distributed it to the public. This would )?e net addition to the money supply.
