Two able, honest men. they haven't ever really quarreled. But Wilson Woodring. former governor of Kansas, never could get along with the generals here. He didn't take them as seriously as they expect to be taken by their civilian superiors and perhaps affronted some of them! Certain members of the general staff Keiped develop the material purchases scandal Which brought a grand jury investigation, when things looked bad for Woodring. Nothing happened to Woodring at the grand jury's hands. He then cleared himself before an investigating House committee and 'turned the tables by nailing Brig. Gen. Benny Foulois, chief of Air Corps, to , th,er, mast. The committee, which had expected to "get"' Woodring, was rather surprised to ftnd itself unanimously charging Foulois with dishonesty and demanding his dismissal. Just the same, Woodring knew the generals were after him and he yearned to get away. He made a strong bid for Tugwell's old job, losing out partly because Secretary Wallace isn't adding any politicians to his staff. Original Brain TruSter Wilson, one of the original brain trusters, and father of the domestic allotment plan, helped start the AAA program.

He took charge of the Subsistence Homesteads Division last year and ptoved himself no great shakes as an organizer, but a whiz of a subsistence homestead expert. (He homesteaded once in Montana, himself.) A pure scientist, he nevertheless showed himself a genius at handling homesteaders. He differed strongly with Ickes when the latter sought to organize the homesteads as straight federal projects. Wilson wanted local corporations, as "more likely to draw local support. Mrs. Roosevelt backed him, but Ickes overruled them. Red tape on forms and personnel, provided mostly by Ickes' administrative assistant, E. K.

Way of the World This is not written with any intention of suggesting that women who earn today should give up their jobs and hand them over to the men, or even feel conscious-stricken. Things have a way of adjusting themselves to conditions and today too many women find themselves with dependents, or without any support for themselves, to think of freedom with anything but terror. Besides, there are thousands who have created places for themselves in the world of business, education and art that men could not fill. The world never goes back.

"You heard him —something queer conies up nnd he goes right out nnd takes hold himself, doesn't leave it to hla assistants. He might have sent one of tlie bo.vs who'd have balled it all up and got us a lot o£ bad publicity." Jane nodded gravely. This place suited her exactly. As soon as Mr. Kandel had finished the grist of letters she went to her desk :-nd looked It through. Good supplies, plenty of them, an almost new machine, a comfort- ablo chair, the desk itselt large and expensive—not of course to be compared to Mr. Kandel's magnificent walnut and plate glass bulwark, but a sort ot young brother to it. ; Jane's dark sllmness, her black frock and red beads were quite In the picture, and she knew It as a cat knows its beauty against a satin cushion. But slid wasted no time on effect. She was too Intent on getting the letters typed nnd niaUitig them look smart. Whej «be had done a couple she. brought them to Mr. Kandel. "Do you like that style?" ehe asked. "Would you prefer less margin, or a double space throughout?" "They look all rigtit to uie," said M"r. Kandel. Jane was disappointed. She had hoped for more approval. The truth was that Mr. Kandel had beguu to re-value his precipitancy. The girl might be efficient, but she was much too young and too pretty, and she had outsmarted him on salary. Likely, too, Mrs. Kanflel wouldn't be pleased when she saw Jane. While Jane typed on swiftly. Mr. Kandel made up his mind that at the first reasonable excuse he'd ease her out. At the end of the week Mr. Kandel had forgotten his Intention to ease Jant out. Three things had proved her value to him, her capacity for work, her deliberate and delicate brow-beating of a contractor who had come to the Kandel office intent on having a row with the head ot the linn (Mr. Kandel had listened-to this from bis secret sanctum) and finally, but not least important, the verdict of Mrs. Kandel. who one flay clanked her diamond bracelets into the place, looked Jane, over from head to feet, talked with her a few minutes and told her husband later. "That girl's all right. She's got cliss." J ANE had not the slightest'.idea that she was under observation, or that there was any jjiies- tion of her permanence. ,' The place suited her and that had bet- tied It In ber own mind. It was all the better to have so much to learn. She couldn't agonize over Amy anil Howard Jackson, when the mysteries of contracts, leases and mortgages, plot-boo!;s and appraisals and building cods were waiting to be absorbed. In the Kandel offices it was conceded trom ber Erst appear• ance that the boss's new secretary was a peach for looka but a lemon for disposition and there was no use trying to get next to her or put anything over on her. Also •that sho wasn't even ordinarily friendly. This was not finite fair. Jane had taken to heart Miss Jardine's precepts and tried bard to be co-operative and polite and nil .the rest of politic office behavior. But it was too superficial to deceive her fellow-workers. They left her alone unless they had business in her province. Even Allen Calvert, who looked alter the Kandel special development projects, and who was large, loud and happy with a laugh and a jollying joking way which got him out of many a bad spot wltn the Board of Estimate and Bureau of Inspection, even Allen wiii< cautious when he approached Jane. Only Roger Thorpe, whom she hud met on her first day with Kandel, tried to keep a little warmer current going between them, because In the realm of office Intrigue it would he to his advantage to have Handel's secretary on his side. There was a pretty definite, though concealed rivalry between lilnisc-lt and Calvert, which Kandel used calculatiugly, keeping both men uncertain as to wlilch he favored, and therefore jilvvoys extra active to please him. Ko^cr Thorpe was calculating, tea Jane could if she would, give liirn news of Kandel's moves and changes available through no other channel. But Jane had not bothered to respond to Thorpe's small attentions, and lie was astute enough not to press them.

There was the school first and then here there's so niocli to get bold of." Thorpe began to re-value Jane. She wasn't just the boss's secretary and a possible scout for his interests. Shg was an extraordinarily handsome young woman who for the Jirst time was-letting him see bel'iud the mask of efficiency and competence which she ordinarily wore.

Because the sedan in which the killers fled from South Bend was abandoned late Saturday at Goodland, Ind., 100 miles southwest of South Bend and about 100 milos southeast of Qhicago, the authorities believed that Diliinger and seme of his companions may have returned to their old hideouts here.

This supervisor will be trained by the home demonstration agent and woman local field supervisor through a local leader tchool and must be approved by the home demonstration agent as a local "canning" leader before she is given tho work of canning supervisor in any canning center. 7. A representative from this offic.0 or the home demonstration agent or her representative may at any time open some of the cans to test for spoilage and quality. 8. No children or babies will be allowed in the canning centers. This must be enforced. 9. Each family having canning done at the canning center must furnish own fuel, towels, dish cloths and soap. 10. Each family must dispose of garbage before leaving the center. 11. Have definite schedule for canning with families that have canning clone so that you .will know each day for whom you will can, what you will can and amount of canning to do. This is very necessary so no products that are to be canned have to stand over night. Families must make dates for canning several days ahead so that products taken to canning center each day max be canned immediately. 12. Each canning supervisor must have list of names of families in her community who will be furnished cant:. Opposite the name must be the number of cans which this family will bu furnished. The families who are furnished cans must secure cans at canning center in their locality und these cans must not leave center until filled by product furnished by this family. For Negroes For the use of the negroes, a kitchen is being set up at Verger School under the supervision of Lucine Harris. People who desire canning done should see ihe supervisors named above and secure an appointment for cunning in order that no food will have to stand over night. Food should be canned just as soon after gathering as is possible and should never be allowed to stand over night. Cans may be purchased at the local hardware stores. These stores are cooperating by giving special prices on cans when bought in lots of 100 at a time.

In Hawaii are the great volcanoes, Maunn Loo and Kilnucn and the Kona Coast, off wh icli President Hoosevolt will go fishing. It's the biggest island and contains great sugar cane areas. In-Hawai inational park volcanoes steam and stew and sometimes Mnuna Loe spews vast flows of lava into the sea. Mauna Kea, on Hawaii, rearing 14,000 feet, has tropical snow on top. Off Kona Coast, Roosevelt will find sword fish and the best fighters. Last year a man caught one weighing 508 opunds. Or in these calm waters you might get a 200-pound tuna, n 60- pound barracuda, a 100-pound dolphin or a smaller one or bonito. Lepers on Molokai Oilier islands include Molokai, a pineapple country where lepers also are sequestered. Father Diamen lived and died among them; Kinun, the "Garden Island" \vher the long-lost crew of the seaplane P-N-9-1 landed in 1!)25 and where great raiches have their o%vn railroads-, sugar mills and canning plants. The governor, now Joseph B. Poin- dextor, is a Washington appointee, but the territory has its own legislature. Intensive developments have produced the world's highest yields of sugar and pineapple to the acre. Huge feudal estates are the last word in industrial efficiency. Investment is Hugh A 175-million dollaar sugar investment and a 30-million dollar pineapple investment have been producing about 1,000,000 tons of exportable sugar and 10,000,000 cans of pineapple a year. The islands have had serious depression unemployment. Importation of cheap oriental labor created the ex- trordinary race problem—to which the Mnssie case and the navy's row with civilians forcefully called attention. I The islands' population of 380,000 j includes 140,000 of Japanese, 28,000 of j Portuguese, 06,000 Filipinos, 27.000 Chinese, 22,000 pure Hawiians and 30.-' 000 part Hnwniians, 6,000 Koreans, 20,000 soldiers and sailors and 23,000 other ' whites. j Japanese Multiply Fast • American business men who seized ' the old Hawaiian government from . Queen Liluokalani imported 110,0001 Japanese contract laborers between 1895 and 1908 to work 12. 15 and 18' hours n clay. The Japanese proved j ambitions and aggressive and multiplied rapidly. Today they do most of the mercantile business. The Chinese who proceeded them in Hawaii have ben barred since annexation in 1898 and Jnpane.se immigration was banned in 1924. The Hawaiians who numbered 300,000 before while men came lo decimalo , Ihem with now diseases, are splen- i did physical specimens with pleasant j dispositions. The first white man to reach Hawaii was Capt, James Cook in 1778. The missionary invasion began in 1820 after stories of moral depravity and nudism among natives had reached New England. Descendants of missionaries established c republic, and persuaded the McKinley administration to annex them after the army and navy had recognized their slragetic value.
