It is perfectly plausible, of course, to argue that a statesman ought to be a mouthpiece for his constituents, and that ia obligated to adopt new policies if he is convinced that t majority of his constituents wants him to. But there I to be a theory that a statesman should be a leader ; that should toll the voters, "This is my stand, and if you don't it you must elect someone else," That theory, of course, calls on a man to put principle jve success at the polls; and that, perhaps, ia a little too * to Gagging History measure now pending before Congress which needs r |£ be snowed under is the bill introduced by Representa* '- M MM»* of Qhjo, which would impose a $1000 fine and i» jail en wywe who disseminates printed matter of a dead person, ?be «bviow» mult ef this, of course, would be to emascu» history.

She Ignored it Tony, bright-eyed, small and brunet. was barely covered by a wisp of chiffon which clearly revealed her breasts and young, un- focmed legs. Her sigh of admiration, a purely feminine aigb, turned swiftly to envy as feminine. "The queen herself." she giggled. "And ID a dress from Chanter or I'll eat my favorite lipstick." The youngster jumped, to her feet, ran across the room and before 'Ellea understood her purpose sue bad pulled down tbe back ot the dress to examine the label. "It IB a Chantel." she confirmed in an awed tone. And to Ellen, "How come you wear a dress from Chantel to dance in a dump like this?" Ellen felt like tearing off tbe dress and stamping on it Sbe was angry and humiliated. "Go away," she fiercely addressed Tony. "Go away and let me alone. And take your hands off my dress!" "Aw, I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings," apologized Tony, with a contrite, distressed little laugh. "Honest I'm sorry. Don't be sore. I was only fooling, You look swell." Anise was still sulky and aggrieved when the three girls walked ioto the ballroom. But Tony bad forgotten completely that she bad ever been jealous of Ellen and was eagerly babbling out amazingly sophisticated advice and inatruo tions, • • • T HE hostesses sat at empty , tables, one girl to a table, and waited lor men to ask them to dance. Most of the girls bad regular Picons. Tony's instruction's dealt In part with methods for "efncblng regulars," These men would buy a wbole String of tickets for the privilege of dancing with ft particular girl (or an hour pr M.

Ellen's very beauty and air ot cool aloofness intimidated them. At last a bold spirit sought out Salomon and came over for an introduction. As she acknowledged the Introduction El* len realized there were worse things than sitting alone at a table while others danced. One ot them was dancing with Jpsepli K. Landis, He was clumsy. He was crude. He held ber BO tightly that sbe could hardly breathe. He pressed bis damp face against her cool cbeelc no matter bow insistently sbe Bought to avoid tbe juxtaposition. And all tbe time be babbled in ber ear inane compliments. "Wbere've you been all my life, little one? At home taking care of tba kids? I thought so. A pretty little thing like you should have a better fate. Take me for instance ^-go right ahead and take me, I'll see you don't get trampled in tbe rush." "You're holding me too tightly," Sbe said furiously, "Naughty, naughty! You're not supposed to talk. I can bold you tighter than this. See," He closed bis arms around her, moved bis face forward * ad kissed ber squarely on tbe lips. Ellen struggled free, slapped bint across tbe moutb and was of the floor 944 toefc at ber table before Joseph £ Landis thoroughly understood wWt bad happened. f * t 1 4COS SALOSfQW wftf very anti fry. He stood before Ellen's t»We, Ills feet wid» apayt, bis arms gesticulating, as-be explained in djtflil b<JW angry h» yaj, '"I 4o»'t care if be <JW try to kin you," he snapped. "That was no reason for socking him. You gotta treat patrons decent. Kid 'em along, give 'em a good time. That's what you're here for. young woman." Ellen was angry, too. "I came here to dance, Mr. Salo mojj, not to be mauled," she retorted, her eyes flashing, her lips pale with anger. "He didn't try to Idas me. He did kiss me." She got up from the table and had begun to say tbat Salomon could find another girl to take her place, one more amenable to bis Ideas, when she saw that there was a small disturbance pear the Uoor. Three men bad entered and were grouped near the ticket bootb. Tbe two in evening clothes plainly wished to leave but tbe third, the cue in flannels, just as plainly wished to stay, Suddenly Ellen saw him detach himserf from bis companions and push bis way toward the spot where she and Salomon stood, He came straight across the crowded floor, regardless of tUe dancers annoyed by bis transit, He was a young man of 26 or 87 witb a countenance in which eagerness was oddly mixed witb *om> thing almost like boredom. His was thick and red. Ellen bad a strange feeling tbat she would always remember his progress acrpss tbe floor, that it would remain fpr- ever #*9<) it her mind, unchangeable. Sbe continued talking to gslfr BMJO, Wbo bad bis back to tbe newcomer, but she was hardly conscious of what she said.

Jacob Salomon -did not observe tbe young man until he was wltuln a few steps of them. But he understood immediately. "You're right," he muttered, bait under his breath. • "You should've socked him. Be moro careful thla time. This bird's class or I miss my guess." Ellen stepped backward, all thought of leaving Dreamland gone. Sbe had the Strangest feeling that she wanted to prolong th« moment of waiting. She was like » child pn Christmas mfrnlng healtat- Ing '«t the 8t«irwty-head before ptunging down to • the giltterlnf tree. She saw Salomon-speak t» the young man, saw the two turi. toward ber. Salomon introduce* her and waited for the newcomer. to' supply his own name. Ellea, with her new and sharpened per- ceptlons, felt that the young man hesitated as he said that be was Larry Smith, Sbe could not be certain. Sbe was certain tbat bis eye* were gray, not blue. iHE orchestra- swung Into a 1 waltz. Most of tbe couples were flocking from tbe floor. .Ellen saw them, heard them, even Identified some of the girls, but all this served only as a dim and unreal background for tbe man wbo stood before ber. He asked her to dance. With tbat same strange feeling tbat all ot tblv bad been preordained, tbat all this was something that she would never forget, she stepped into bis arms. / Sbe fancied tbat she was trembling. Sbe'was sure tbat if she tried to speak she would find tbat sbe bad lost her voice, Tbe two tall beautiful young people were almost alone on the floor. They bad not spoken since they started dancing. As effortless'as shadows they drifted along to tbe measures ot the lightly melancholy tune. "I haven't any tickets," the young man spoke at last and abruptly. Absurdly be repeated, "I haven't any tickets." He guided her to tbe ticket bootb. Even as they reached the knot of perspiring men who were supply ing themselves witb, fresh tickets, the dance was done,. Ellen withdrew a few paces, embarrassed, shy, confused, Sbe was obsessed with a desire to learn tbe name of tbe wait* the or-' cbes'tra bad played. As she waited for ber partner nothing seemed to matter in the world save tbat sbe should know the name of tbat waltz, Without thinking what sbe was doing she thumped tbe violin player between tbe shoulder blades. He was tuning bis instrument put be stopped tq ask indignantly what sbe thought she was doing, "What wait* were you piayingt What waJu were you playing?" "'Waltz Romantic.' Ne*t time look out wbo you punch." Bileo laughed joyously and witb a dlsgqsted glance at ber, be began to pick at bis strings again, A mo- BWPt later tbe lights went out—all except a round moon over tbe orchestra. As the room filled witb mMy, bluish, light and tbe piaup began to tinkle, tbe dancers crowded to the Soar. Ellen was wildly impatient to t* daaclng. What If Larry Smith were unable to find ber?

Richard Stewart Hooker is, by any measure, a real soldier. The commander of the United States' armed forces in this battletorn region is largely physical, indefatigable 1 in energy, and has an "imposing record behind him as a fighting Marine. A native of California, grandson of a former U; S. Senator, he is nearing his 55th birthday. Thirty-two of those years have ben spent as an officer in the Marine Corps. His first assignment, in fact, after he became a young Second Lieutenant at the age of 23, was In the Philippines. Then tie was transferred to Washington as an aide to the commandant, soon was shipped out of the country again to serve with the Panama expeditionary force. In 1910 he was in Porto Rico, two years later in Cuba, and in 1914 was put in Command of a,Marine company at Vera Cruz, Mexico. The next year found the'much- traveled officer chasing irregulars in Haiti, where he won the Mcdaillc Milltarc. When a husband and wife have a joint checking account, it's easy to guess who is running the joint. Now thtt the Olympic games are coming up. It .might be' well to explain tljat the pole vault is not In a bank at Warsaw. ! _ " • ' ' ' The undertaker in London who advertised free funerals for .suicides went broke. He forgot about London's large Scotch population. Chinese residents of Shanghai probably think Japanese aims are right at them. Would you say that the Nebraska barger who traded a haircut for a pig was getting hoggish? President Hoover has lost 27 pounds since he took office. That's nothing. We know several men wh ohave lost more than a million since then. Oklahoma sent 15 more state guardsmen into the oil fields. Alfalfa Bill isn't going to be kept off page one by any Oriental fracas. Turtle Butcher Claims 49-Year Diving Record KEY WEST, Fla.-(fl>)-Gladden Albury has two claims to fame. He says he is the only turtle butcher in the United States and declares the diving record he made in the Bahamas 49 years ago is still unequaled Albury has just returned from Harbor Island, his birthplace in the Ba- hfmas, where at 16 years of age he dived from New wharf to Cash's wharf, a distance of 408 feet. Since Albury left Harbor Island to live at Key West, he said, hundreds of men and boys have tried to make the dive, but none'has succeeded. As a turtle butcher Albury kills and dresses from eight to ten daily. Most of the meat is used to make bouillon. •ten Aufttit I* »8Ji For Sheriff CITY (Democratic Primary Feb. 83) For City Clerk FRED WEBB For City Attorney PAT CASBY For Alderman Ward One L.
