What fun to be so rich! What Fun to be driven in a limousine wherever you wanted to go! What Tun to stop at a smart restaurant because you were thirsty, to be served by an impressed beadwuiter, to have every wish anticipated. Care and worries drifted away from her. The hurried, cjattery morning with .Its clashing of milk cans and jangling alarm clocks seemed years away. Here there was only peace and beauty and leisure. , She began, did Ellen, to weave swift dreams of girlhood, dreams tbat need ao little those those substance. Although Steven Barclay did not guess it his own shadowy figure moved through those fancies. They drove almost quietly to Preamland, absorbed in their separate thoughts. They stopped off Broadway. Ellen carefully picked up the box which held the precious dress and stretched out her han4 to Barclay. "I can't tell you," she said breathlessly, "how much I appreciate what you've done for me." • * * A BOVE them, through the open windows, came a clashing ol braises and a singing of strings.

Stepped into Dreamland and ran straight into Jacob Salomon. His face broke Into a wide grin. "Hullo—you're back. And with .be dress, too, I see. Quick work, kJd." Ellen's chin came up. "I might as wel) tell you," she said coolly, "that i intend to work [xere <w}y temporarily. For three weeks at the most." "That's o. k. by me, kid- But since you're here I suppose you won't mind obeying the rules like the other girls. Or will you?" "I won't," Ellen replied, Ignoring bis heavy-handed sarcasm.

Roosevelt Scolded and Praised Over His Stand WASHINGTON.- (fi>) -The retreat from the League of Nations issue of democratic presidential possibilities brought a scolding and some endorsement Wednesday from senators of that party and much funmaking from the republican foes of the league. Advocates of Governor Roosevelt, of New York, for the democratic presidential nomination hailed his stand Wednesday against the league, saying it assured an "American first" administration. But the sage Senator Walsh, of Montana, one of the veteran democratic leaders for the Wilson League of Nations and the World Court, sppke sharply of the statement of Rospevelt and that of Newton D. Baker, of Ohio. The republicans who r led the successful fight in the senate against American entry into the league in 1919 smiled and commented freely. Cyr Asks Rehearing on His Suit to Oust Long NEW ORLEANS-^)—Dr. Paul N. Cyr, elected lieutenant governor, seeking the Louisiana governor's chair, Thursday asked the state supreme court for a re-hearing on its recent dismissal of his ouster suit against Huey P. Long, then governor and now jiinipr United States senator. The court dismissed the action designed to remove Long from the governor's office, on grounds that it had no jurisdiction to say who was governor and who senator, 'but Cyr's petition for re-hearing asserted the court erred in this ruling, alleging the citations of other cases in the opinion showed that jurisdiction existed. Long instated Alvin O. King, formerly presdent pro tern of the senate, jn the governor's chair when he went to Washington.
