Towns, cities and provinces could desig- jjftte the most villainous citizens in their jurisdictions and Jiold them up to public execration. Such a scheme, like a heavy thunderstorm, ought at least to clear the air a little. The great amount of rancor and bad feeling that is automatically generated in the breast of Bach citizen in the course of the daily routine might get a chance to discharge itself. After such a period it might be 1J "" !i tle easier for us to practice those ideals of neighbor! iness charity to which we are forever giving lip-service. Vanity of Vanities vanity* rather than material trouble, that causes most suicides among men. So says Dr. WflHam Muhlberg, mecl- director of the Union Central Life Insurance Co. of Cin; and his explanation sounds like a good one. he thine that drives a man to take his life is his in- |jij)ility to swallow his pride, built up during his more pros- $J»QUS years," says Dr. Muhlberg. "It is not fear of seeing children go hungry, or his wife weakened from doing It is the agony of watching neighbor's satisfac- when he has to withdraw from the country club and sell 16-£jrlinder sedan." The old urge to keep up with the Joneses is one of the powerful motives any of us have. It is probably trup when a man finds himself losing in that silly race he to eel that his whole life is a failure.

"You keep your mouth shut!" The woman In the heavy veil, the one who had joined her captor a moment before, spoke hoarsely. Sandra had a fleeting Impression ehe had heard that voice before and that its owner was attempting to disguise it. She shrank Iroin the glare of eyea behind the heavy drapery ot gauze. There was something wildly intimidating about that stare, They conferred for a few minutes outside the closed door while the girl on the couch, her feet bound, allowed her eyes to rove frantically about the room, seeking some means of escape. There seemed to be none. The wjndow was locked and barred— ehe could see that, Even if ber shackles were loosed it would take some superb tactics to get out of this fetid room. Fool— fool she had been to come alone! They had got her into this trap with maddening ease. Sandra's thoughts home and her father. roved to He would be reading that soiled note presently. If she knew him, he had already telephoned the police, Then what? Would his life also be in danger? Pretending to Bhrug off this notion as pure melodrama, Sandra raised her Roosevelt is a great man, not only because he has a gat mind, but because he has wonderful technique in handl- Hi«n. — Paul Claudel, former ambassador from France.

"Come along, you!" he said, not unkindly. "We're eteppln' out of here." Sandra brushed against the woman in the passage as she followed. Again she had a sense ot imminent menace, of an almost tangible hatred. The man indicated she was to sit beside him in the rickety sedan. Before stepping into it Sandra glanced about) quickly to flx the scene in her m|nd, In the dark- Bess she could see only a rotting fence and dooryard. The whole place was like half a hundred discouraged farms tended by renters In the countryside. There was nothing to distinguish it. "Never mind your lookin'." the man cackled. "We're not comin' this way again." The veiled woman clambered into the back seat and Sandra felt those boring eyes upon her. * * * npHBY rode, bumping and evray- * ing, tur «'ti*(. seemed to the girl hours although when she glanced at the dial of her watch she saw It .was only 11 o'clock. Curious they didn't trouble to blindfold her! She knew this road—It was the Embury Turnpike. .Wouldn't it be the simplest thing, she thought, to scream — to attract the attention of some passing motorist? For all she Unew alarms might have been broadcast already regarding her disappearance. As it reading her thoughts, a rasping voice from the rear said harshly, "No funny business now. I've got a gun!" They turned left into a lane lined with poplars. The moon was rising and the landscape lay cool nnd sharply etched before them, like a back drop in a theater. Black against the sky roso a clumsy house, sprouting half a dozen chimneys. Dark. Sinister. "Walt here," the man commanded his hcnohworaan. He jumped out and went about to the back of the house, returning presently in disgruntled mood, "Key's not here," he cried to the woman in tho back seat, Sandra had an almost insane impulse to laugh. It was so absurd, this criminal protesting innocently that he couldn't get into a house because he hadn't a key. The woman wrenched tho car door open, evidencing her intention of searching for the missing key. But instead she paused, stifling a scream. Lights wore blurring the roadbed of the lane. A car was coming toward them at top speed. "It's the cops!" yelled the man. "Let's go." HQ flung himself Into the driver's seat. The startei whirred—died. Again and again he tried it, desperation in every move. But the car bore down on them, "Run for it!" said a hoarse voice, Sandra saw the veiled woman trip over a log. Then the lights of the car shone full into her eyes. "You big—!" Sandra looked up, half laugh- Ing, half crying. But Instead o the friendly blue-coated figure she had expected to see, she found herself staring Into the eyes o: James, the chauffeur. "You all right?" His voice sounded relieved. The woman, having picked herself up, now began to run. In a trice, the long- legged James had overtaken her, boded no good to Sandra. The map, her original captor, hnd by his time disappeared, drifted ntp the darkness somewhere. "You better not talk that way," Jnmes said defensively to Sandra. 'You better be glad I come along n time to save you. When she" ;he indicated tho struggling Hetty) "gets a mad on she's a sure enough wildcat. She waa )ouncl to get even."

"You enow as well as I do, Miss Lawrence, we can't get jobs without we have a recommend." "They didn't want that—they wanted money," Sandra informed Urn icily. "They've sent a note to my father demanding $50,000." James groaned. "Honest, Hetty, did you do that?" The girl nodded, defiant. "You little nit-wit!" He whirled on her. "Do you know what a mess you can get us into? You and that no-count cousin of yours." "I don't care," Hetty said sullenly. "I said I'd get her and I did. She's not as smart as sho thinks she Is.

"Would anybody," she Inquired coolly, "tell me what this is all about?" James turned. The habit cf respect was strong but even Sandra could catch the note of dislike. Grudgingly he muttered, "You threw us out without Jobs. You wouldn't give us even a recommend. It wasn't our fault." Sandra flushed. "She was Impudent. She didn't deserve it.'

U,W. of Kansas FINE BLUFF, Ark—Automobile accidents were responsible for the first two death claims to be paid in the Arkansas division of the A. O. U. W. of Kansas, it was announced Tuesday by Joe B. Hargis, Hope, local deputy fr the A. O. U. W. of Kansas. The first claim was paid to Mrs. Lowella Nix of Hope, on a policy i'cr $1,000 carried by her husband, Alpha A. Nix. who died in that city on April 17, as the result of injuries received in an automobile accident there en April 15. Exactly two weeks from the date of Mr. Nix's death, his widow received a check for $1,000 from J. B. Hargis, A. O. U. W. deputy at Hope. In Fort Smith, District Manager R. A. Geaton has paid to Mrs. Delia Viola Faulkner, the beneficiary of Britain R. Faulkner, Fort Smith man who was victim of an accident that occurred on North Sivth street on April 23. Four persons were run down while en route to church, and Mr. Faulkner was killed. He made but one month's premium payment on his policy, which was issued April 10. The chock for $500 in payment of the claim was received six days attSr paper.-: • were filed in the Newton, (Kan.t office. Joe E. Brown at Saenger Thursday "Elmer the Great" Presents Comedian in Baseball Story Joe E. Brown will be seen on the screen of the Saenger Thursday and Friday, opening with a bargain matinee Thursday at 2:30 in his latcsl ecmccly, "Elmer the Great," which is :aid to be the: mosl uproariously funny of any picture he has appeared in to date. "Elmer the Great," wrillen by Ring Larder and Gecrge M. Cohan, was a comedy riol on Ihe slagc and is said lo be even more halarious as a screen play, because many of the startling icquences which could be only hinted at before the footlinghls are actually depicled in Ihe piclure. Some of Ihe funniest as well as most intense scenes in the picture occur during the playing of a World Series in a downpour of rain. The plot concerns a hick town boy who develops into the champion batsman of the big league. He is also the champion cater and long-time sleeper. His cocksureness makes him the bull of innumerable jokes by olher members of his team. Joe. as Elmer the Great, becomes involved in a love tangle wihch eventually lands him in jail, and very nearly loses the World's Series champion- chip for his team. How he extricates hmiself and finally wins both the game and the girl is one of the most exciting as well as the most laughable incidents in a comedy full of riotous situations and fast action. There is a strong supporting cast, with Patricia Ellis, the new sensation cf the screen, playing Ihe leading feminine role opposite Joe. Others include Frank McHugh, Clair Dodd, Preston S. Foster and Russell Hop| ton. Australia Tightens Grip CANBERRA — (/P) — Australia intends to strcnglhcn her grip on New Guinea, the former Gorman section under mandate from the League of Nations.

Girl Scooped All Capital Writer^ Men Reporters Weren't There as Mrs. Roosevelt Talked By HERBERT PLUMMEK ' As.vccln/,c(l Press Correspondent WASHINGTON— (/P)-As a general thing, the wife of the President isn't usually a source of what newspaper folk call "spot" news. Twice a week most of them drop everything and go to the White House- to attend the President's regular press ccnierenccs. They wouldn't think of mirsingscne of those Wednesday morning or Friday afternoon sessions with Ihe chief executive. But it now appears that there are other news sources at. the White House than merely Mr. Roosevelt. Mrs. Roosevelt has emerged as a news- maker who will bear watching. Once a week Mrs. Rcasevclt gives a press conference of her own which is attended only by the newspapcp •wpmen of the capital. The inen of the craft had thought littls of these weekly meetings and had ignored them. Then tho other clay Ihey had Iheir eyes opened— It scemv that Mrs. Roosevelt told tho young women who had gone to the White House that clay thai while she was a teetotaler herself, if it became legal to serve beer, then guests at patched throat, stumbled along On and on &t>e this road, that seemingly bad no turning. At last she heard the pur ot a motor going iu the same direction. She was frightened rather than relieved, bearing men's shouts. What new horrors did this nightmare hold for her? "Sandra!" She heard ber father's Joyous shout just before she lost con- aciouauesa.

NOTICE A Meeting Of The Members Of The Hope And Hempstead County Hospilal At-sn. Will bo Held On Monday, Muy 22nd. At Tlu- Cily Hall, For The Purpose Of Electing Officers For ;j.'ho Coining Year. K. S. Greening, Vice-Pres. 17-He Straw Hats Cleaned and Blocked ELSONHUCKIN proposes them. Winthrop W. Aldricb, head of the Chase National bank, largest commercial bank in the, world, recently proposed legal changes which would force private banks to submit to the same regulation as commercial banks and which would end interlocking directorates among baniS and corporations. In Aldrich's proposal the financial district saw foreshadowings of great financial change, and, since Rockefeller is a large stockholder in Chase, is was easy to visualize a Morgan- Rockefeller war. He's Testified Before To Morgan testifying would not be entirely new. In 1915 lie appeared before the Industrial Relations commission investigating industrial unrest. M^-gan's father before him also had given public testimony. This was before the "money trust" inquiry of the Pujo committee in 1912. He had not, Morgan, the elder, saTd, "the slightest power. Only in extremely unusual circumstances has Morgan allowed himself to be qupted or even to be seen by newspapermen, although he appears in the small pill box-like building at 23 Wall street regularly. • Thomas Lamont a chief partner, usually sees the press, but neither may Lamont be quoted. What other partners say also is "off the record." As J. Pierpont Morgan, the elder, was silent, so his son of the same name has nothing lo say, It was during the administration of President Theodore Roosevelt that Morgan, the elder, testified. Will it be under another Roosevelt that another Morgan will be questioned? Films Demand Beauty Auto Without Frame Tried by Australia SYDNEY - (£>) — An all-Australian four cylinder motor car will shortly be placed on the market.

C.-(/P)—Definite ro- lalion of crops is building up Norlh arolina soils and giving more economical acre yields, says Enos C. Blair, extension agronomist at State college. One result is shown in permanent soil improvement and another in the amount of grain planted and harvested. More wheat was sown Ihis season for flour lhan al any time since 1919, Blair says. .Eighteen-Day Speech LONDON-(#>)-One of the longest opening speeches ever made i nan English court of law has just been concluded in the court of appeal.
