On Writing a Book pf man who sets out'towrite a book usually fails "to realize "that he is entering one of the most 1 competitive fields there is. , it seems as if the/man with a yarn in his Ought not to have much^trbuble getting it printed. kpfKooJks get published every year, and some of them are, ^it .mildly, middling poor. It should be fairly simple to ie over if irs apy good'at all. plf the, reality is more discouraging, "-'ypical example is the case of E. P. Button and Co., fentative publishing house. , -spring Button is publishing 42 books, These were 'from more than 10,000 manuscripts that were sub»'Of the 10,000, approximately 1500 were held worthy n$j» consideration, not only by the editorial department sales, advertising, publicity and trade promotion is generally estimated," says John Macrae, Jr., vice lent of'the firm, "that most large publishing houses "g about |0 times as many manuscripts as they can give fr-consideration to. The others are obviously so poor i— *- - y e to be refused without this careful considera- • not to clog up the editorial offices and because £«xpense involved—the actual reading of a manuscript about $10." Nor is that-the worst of it. Of the 42 books this firm is Jjshing this spring, only 10 are first books by new auth- other 32 are all by writers who are well known to public and to the publishing trade. f What, then, is the aspiring young author up against T he blithely wraps up that distillation of dreams and dei which constitutes his manuscript and consigns it to the • He has just about one chance in a thousand.

She wanted to cry out to him that it wasn't necessities she wanted tor Mike but all the luxuries, all the comforts that only money would buy. Instead she turned abruptly away. "Come on, mother," she said duietly, "We must go," When they reached home Molly fras stilt crying bitterly, softly, hopelessly. Steven's car stood in front of the apartment house. Lorene must have told him what had happened. Ellen saw him before tho others did and thought that never had she been so glad to see anyone. She ran from the cab to meet -him. As she felt the clasp of his hands and looked into his anxious, troubled eyes she thought she could break into team of thanksgiving. From then on everything went as she had known it would.

Mike's improved health, doing ier Work from day to day—these were the important things. Other people helped. Salomon s kind, indulgent of her frequent absences, Lorene was kind, too. Bllen felt she hardly deserved so much thoughtfulneas. What had she done for Lorene or for Salomon that they should take such pains< to make things easy for her? Above all, what had she done for Steven that bis business, his other interests, his other friends should give way before her Immediate need of him? Ellen did need him. She. had hours of weakness and despair. Mike did not rally from the opera* tlon as they had hoped he would. _ ,by HJitti « ._.. notfifng Jaterested of « • • CffiVfifyaatiM fttwuva be counted z&aiSft** 1 *-** bwMiiejfi'tend tnd <J0flM*nte of Id o« thetfl. hla cart Was coftsttfitly at f t6 o*W th«|«f there at«p they wished to ge, th remembered (9 lietp floWSfs B| the hOBpltal, rewotttbeted i diltf »u^ prili for Mlk«, Mj-fft ftftd Molly a<JttlMd;J(laS, losked up t8:,Wnt, ftdflfld m.

She glancett at Myra and saw that her sister was in silent agree* tnent. Strangely she could find no pleasure in that knowledge.

Myra hesitated, then saw something In Ellen's face that made her hurry Bert into the living room. Ellen closed the door that shut her and Steven into tho little world of the kitchen.
