Wall 'Street, with all its emissaries and friends here, its pipelines into high places and war funds, has fought to have Roosevelt put at least two of its insiders on the board—and, if pos- t sible, a third man who would be "neu- ,tral,' or wobbly. [.Behind the. drive ; for Cohen one found Prof. Raymond Moley and ' Chairmen Sam Rayburn and Duncan Hetcher of the respective House and ' Senate committees which framed the ? Stock market bill, Federal Trade Com- 'jBiissioner Jim Landis and Counsel 'Tom Corcoran of HFC. Kayburn's entire committee endorsed Cohen in a letter to Roosevelt. || (Cohen, Landis, and Corcoran wrote If the original bill and helped the com- i mittees steer it through Congress.• Sought to Curb Wall Street j The latter group wanted Landis, ,. Federal Trade iCommissioner George „ C. Mathews, Ferdinand Fecora, and Cohen on the commission. | i) 1 'Cohen is aassociate counsel for > JPWA, in charge of railroad, loans, , v 'and a protege of Prof. Felix Frank, furten Hff-was born UfMtmcie, Kd., • 40 years ago, was graduated from Chi, cago University and Harvard Law School in record time,.and became sec- l retary to Judge Julian Mack of the ' U- S. Circuit Court, who handled most L- big corporation receiverships in New York. Cohen was art attorney for the Zion» ists at the Paris peace conference, working with Justice Brandeis, and helper manage Palestine colonization. He practiced law in Wall Street, , handled some big receiverships, became a director of the Amalgamated Bank—only labor bank still surviving —and drafted and fought for women's ' minimum wage laws-no woperating in several states. Heavy Pressure Applied Moley tipped off. his friends here that a $100,000 fund had been raised in Wall Street to finance hand-picked experts who would go to work for the new commission, but couldn't af- • ford the ascrifice unless aided. . . . W. Averill Harriman, high NRA official and partner in Brown Brothers, Harriman &Co. at 59 Wall Street, was found ousy backtacke. . . . And then • there were the Hebrew financiers ! : from New York who urged Roosevelt not to appoint Cohen lest he thereby stir up resentment against both their race and the administration among the anti-Semitic element. Wallace Explains It-seems funny to some people that Secretary of Agriculture Wallace, :who launched the corn-hog reduction program, should be interested in the Hi-Bred Corn Co., which advertises in "Wallace's Farmer" a seed corn which will yield 19.8 per cent more to the acre than ordinary corn. Wallace developed the seed by personal experiment. He has a small minority interest in the company stock and Mrs. Wallace is the largest stockholder. But the secretary, questioned, insists there isn't enough seed in ex- L i£tence to plant more than IVi per cent of Iowa's com acreage and that it takes 10 years to breed it, so that it couldn't possibly affect the general situation for years. j "There is no conflict between car-j rying on efforts for efficiency and at '< the same time controlling production," j he says. "It is absurd for a farmer I to work long hours to produce a crop that he can produce in short hours. | The move for efficiency can and; should be carried on at the same time j the totaJ output is controlled. [ "Nobody would advocate that that | farmers go back to plowing with at forked stick or let their crops go to weeds to decrease production. Use of better feed is in line with the use of better machinery and better farming methods, all of which tend to give the farmer more leisure and permit a greater return per hour for his labor." By Olive Roberts Barton What About the Care of Blind Children? Accent Sound, Touch in Their Development, Are you interested in the blind? In blind babies? I need not ask. If any mother gets to the place that she feels she has nothing to thank her God for, srhe should get down on her knees and thank Him for sparing her that. Yet there are, in the world today— in this country,'many blind and semi- blind children. ' ' When they are old enough they receive education arid training in institutions and special schools. That there is something to be done before this time in the home, during the years of babyhood and early childhood, is seldom mentioned. Miss Nancy Walburn of the American Foundation for the Blind in New York- City has sent me some material on the subject. What I quote below has been compiled by Harriet E. Totman. How circuitously does knowledge come to us. Impossible to. .relay the entire summary of advice^contained in it, I quote only some important paragraphs. But they have authority behind them, notably Miss Kathryn E. Maxfield, former Director of the Foundation: Physical Development "If your child is blind from infancy, you have three to four months in which' you need not concern yourself with the immediate training of your baby as a blind child. This period is for, physical development, and your duty*"is accomplished when you see that he is well fed, kept clean and has abundance of sleep. . . . "Care should be taken" (this, of coui^e, when the normal baby ordinarily begins to react to the movement of objects around him) "to have his environment rich in tones, tinkly bells on his cuddle toys, which are also pleasant to touch, squeak toys, soft music, more occasion" to hear mother's voice. Strings of wooden beads on the carriage or crib and other toys should be kept where little hands will readily find them and investigate. "Fortunately more and more of our fo-called blind babies are not entirely without sight.' -Then attention should be given to stiulafing—not straining— whatever vision. there is. The baby should be placed where he can see sunlight play on objects, though not shine into his face, and enjoy light and shadow. . . . Develop Through Sound "With a blind baby, incentives to walk are not great, so creeping and walking should be encouraged by interesting sounds and voices at close range. Fear is deterrent, especially if he has had a fall. The parent should then lead him by the hand, being careful to give him a sense of security. . . . There should be repoicing and laughter when he takes a step alone. A Kiddy-Kar and a play pen are useful. They give a sense of security . . . When he can walk his area should not be too limited. He should be encouraged to investigate his room and even the yard. Going up and down stairs should be encouraged. "If you can buy him but one thing, I believe this should be blocks—not less than two and a half inches square," says Miss Totman. "Drag toys are favorites, especially those that tinkle and rattle as they go. Then later, wagons, out-door sand boxes, pails and spoons or shovels." She adds that-iie can be taught to feed himself in time, but is better off with his own little table and chair, away from criticism and distress over spilled food. Eating nicely will come with time. The goal, it seems plain, is to develop the child as much as possible through the medium of his perfect senses. And tq> teach him independence, acceptance and happiness. This applies to any handicapped child. Not too much e'motionalism on the parents' part, and a definite plan in the early years to help him make the most of his later life. GLORIFYING YOURSELF Seventeen of every twenty road accidents are due to human error of judgment, while in two of every three lack ot care o rthought on the part tit the victim is the principal cause. jpf By Alicia Hart ^ Weekly Massage Is Adequate For Scalp Stimulation say that you should not massage around the roots of the hair at all, others maintain that a weekly massage is beneficial, and still others insist that you should do it every night. Well, let's look at all sides of the controversy. Vigorous beauty treatments, like most medicine, should be taken in moderate doses and the factitious slogan, "If a Httle's good, a lot's better," is highly impractical. The scalp is massaged for two reasons, first, to bring up circulation and stimulate the growth of hair and, second, to loosen dry skin and flakes of dandruff. Now it stands to reason that daily stimulation isn't exactly necessary and that too 'much massage may make the oil glands overdo their normal work. Therefore, a weekly scalp massage (preferably the night before a shampoo) should be adequate. Remember that incorrect manipulation of the scalp is worse than no massage at all. Place your elbows on a table and put your head in your hands. Then, with rotary motions, make the scalp move backward and forward for no more than ten min- utes. The fingers shouldn't move at all until you're ready to set thorn down on a new spot. Spring beds, shower baths, and radio sets are fitted to a fleet of automobiles in which an expedition intends to cross Asia from Syria, through Persia and Pamir to China, and returning through India. The use of liquid carbonic gas, for soda water, was introduced into this country in 1888 by Jacob Bnur of Terre Haute, Ind. SOPHIE KERR'S SUPERB LOVE STORY .

VP7HILE she waited for Howard " to come in to luncheon Amy was playing the Brahms C Major Intermezzo and listening to'her own music critically. She was dissatisfied. It should be lighter, but not humoristlc nor clownish. Not too fragile either, but witty and precise and crisp. "It's in the touch," she thought, "and keeping strictly to the Beat." She started the metronome and began again, so Intent that she did not hear Howard enter.'They had been married for almost a year—montha that had passed swiftly and very happily. Howard's voice aroused Amj from her preoccupation. ' "Well, It's come!" he said. She swung around on the stool. "They've really made an otter?" "Yes, and a very decent one. Old Ellert must be sicker than we heard. OE course he'll be the ostensible head, but I'll do all the work and have a full professorship. They don't like to lose the value of his name, which is natural. D'you want to go back to Marburg?" "I'll love It. Not that 1 don't like it here, Howard—" She looked about the pleasant room with its dark oak furnishings, lively blue and yellow cretonnes, ceiling-high bookshelves, casement windows open to the campus green. "But I can take all this—" "And me." •'"And you!" They smiled at each other with the confidence of complete accord, a life fully shared. "And then there'll be father and mother! I'll miss poor old Grandpa—but—there's no use thinking of that. The main thing is—are you satisfied? It's a much smaller place, in a way." "I think it's a whale of a step up for me, Amy. 1 haven't said much because 1 hardly believed they'd give it to a man who'u only an instructor—I mean Kllert is so very well known, so important. It's worth 10 years he-re, no matter what I did." "What about your field work this summer, though?" "I'll have to do that. It's all arranged. There's no one to take my place and the report would be that much shy. But it'll only be through July and that will give nie six weeks iu Marburg to get organized." "Just lapping up work, aren't you? What will your mother say? Have you told her?" "Not yet. She won't mind. She'a talking now of two years In France." "Yea, I know. She said the other day! the greatest discovery of her life was that she hadn't any roots'and didn't need any to enjoy horeelf. Call her up and ask her to dinner and we'll tell her then. 1 ! Amy looked about the room again, speculating. "I can get us all moved and settled while you're In! the field." "Lappifis up a bit o£ work yourself,(aren't you?" I » • * tt A IliUJr wives and professors' ^* wjves can move in their sleep, they say. How much are they going to pay you?" "Three thousand!" "Howard! Double what you get here! We'll be rolling! Oh, that's grand. Let's buy some new china and a cheval glass and a really.nice rug, an Oriental that'll last us the rest of our lives." "I'd rather you bought things fdr yourself than for the house. Wouldn't you like a necklace or a ring?" , "Mister, my character Is so noble I'd rather buy furniture than clothes or jewelry." "Missus, the poet has truly said that beauty unadorned et cetera." It was while Amy was washing dishes and still hurrying on to Marburg in her mind, counting what she would have to do before they left, that she thought ot Jane. In the year of her marriage she had heard nothing directly from her former best friend. The summer before when they had visited her pareuts even Miss Ilosa had bean away and all that Amy could find out was that Jane was apparently Hying very hif{h indeed with an important job, a big salary and what Miss Rosa had vaguely described to Mrs. Lowe as an emancipated life. Jane had to drop back in Amy's thoughts for the ne.-it few weeks. There was so much to do, the whirl of starting off Howard tor his field trip, boots, flannel shirts, blankets, slicker, water- bottle, medicine kit, knapsack. Then the wrench of their first parting, which wasn't so bad as Amy expected because there wasn't a minute to think about it with all the packing and the wiring back and forth to Marburg about a house, and Howard's mother right there, helping and kind, and all the faculty people so surprisingly regretful about their going! * » * AT last- everything was gone ^ and the house was empty. Amy had said, she hoped, a suitable- goodby to everyone and she was on her way back to Marburg iu a delicious state of relaxation after effort and gladness to be going home. "I've got the Booth houso for you," was her mother's triumphant greeting. "It was a battle, but I won. Old Miss Rachel Booth insisted that she couldn't bear to have anyone live there elnce she couldn't, but after a while she said she might not mind so much since it was you. And the moncy'l! be a god-seud for her." "Oh, Mother! I'd rather have ft than any house iu Marburg. Thiuk of that walled garden witu the smoke-tree!" The Booth houso was not ou the campus avenue but on the cross street below. It was old and strong, with funny little Inconvenient steps up and down between the wide rooms, fireplaces with high, formal mantels, a shallow turning staircase—a house built In no style and with no plan, yet holding an air ot dignity and ease. It had been arranged that Amy would stay with her parents until Howard came back, but every day she went up to the Booth house to superintend tho necessary cleaning and renovating. From garret to cellar there must be wholesale scrubbing and rubbing. The bathroom waa a veritable museum piece in point ot age and oddity and, considering Howard's, -increased salary, Amy felt justified in having it torn out and modern baths put In. » • • W HILE the workmen were busy Inside, Amy did what ah'e could In the garden—prunlngp weeding, cutting out sprouts and suckers, tying up the riotous vines. It might have been hard work but she was constantly Interrupted by old friends who wanted to see her and draw her back Into the town's summer diversions. They all came—Edgar Moreland, Vanny II o u g h, Louise March, Henry and Adele Borwyn, Bill Howard—the crowd she had grown up with, all making her more than welcome. Besides these, there wero the older people, faculty wives and townspeople, who seemed as glad to see her 0.3 her own ago intimates. Miss Rosa Terry came too, and found Amy very grimy and hot, ruthlessly pulling out young wis- tarias which had sprung up by the dozen. "I'm too disgusting to give you a kiss," Amy told her guest. "Wait untii I wash my face. And do sit down. I borrowed those chairs from Mother until my things can ba unpacked." "Why anyone thinks gardening is pretty work for women I never could understand," said Miss Kosa When Amy had come back, cleaner and cooler. "It's hard, mean, dirty Injior and when I say labor I mean It. Amy, you're blooming like a rose. I'm glad you've come back to us." "You look pretty blooming yourself, Miss Rosa. You haven't changed one scrap." "Oh, yes. I'm five pounds heavier than I was last summer. I do like my food, and thank heaven my digestion stands by me, even if my eyes and teeth are going. This old place'll maka you a nice home. Rachel Booth was a perfect fool to let It stand idle for sentiment. A house like:! to be lived In." "I know this one does. It smiles at every lick of new paint, It's a gallant old place." Am> waited a moment, then blurtecj the question she had been thinking of ever since Miss Roaa ap.- peared. "How's Jaue?" she asked "What's she doing?" (Copyright. 1034. by Sophie Kerr) (To Be Coutit-.ied) loosest Signs Land Moratorium Railroad Pension Bill Is Also Enacted Into Law WASHINGTON — (fp)— President Roosevelt has signed the legislation granting n partial six-year moratorium on paying off farm mortgages and the bill for a retirement pension system for railroal employes, The Grosser bill provides retirement with pay for railroad employes at the nge of 65. It compels both the workers and their employers to contribute to the retirement fund. Both the Frnzler-Lemke bill and the -rosscr proposal were fought by con- ervative forces and supported by lib- oral enemies. ( Upon retiremene each employe is to receive a monthly payment equal to two percent of his monthly pay multiplied by the number of years he has served. The annuity is not to be more than 75 per cent of the monthly compensation and the latter is defined as the average monthly pay during his period of service. One of the broadest acts yet passed for the relief of any class of debtors the Frazler-Lemke bill would allow debt-burdcnd farmers a five-year moratorium if they are unable to roach a satisfactory arrangemnt with their creditors. After the farmer begins bankruptcy proceedings, the court is to appoint appraisers to arrive at a "fair value" of his land and chattels, if liens are held against them. If that appraisal is satisfactory to the lien holders, the farmers must pay off the indebtedness over a six-year period at rates of interest which begin at one per cent on the total and gradually rise to five per cent. Any creditor may block the settlement if he desires. But if he does the federal court is authorized to give the farmer a five-yar moratorium. During that time the debtor would keep his place and pay a "fair rental value" to be determined by the court. This rent would be divided among the creditors. At the end of the five-yar period the court may take a new appraisal of the property and the farmer could still be relieved of his debts if the lien holders accept that valuation and it is paid. Othewise forclosure may be resorted to. The president signed the bill liberalizing the laws covering compensation for World war widows and orphans last Friday.

Since man first left the chase and the nomadic way of existence, and settled clown to living, he has looked to some stadard which represented his ideals. The Egyptians and the Assyrians carried staffs bearing emblems. The Persians bore an eagle fixed to the end of a lance. The Greeks had a piece of armor on a syear. The Romans had their vexillum and, later, their labarum of purple silk embroidered with gold. The organized way of life has always had its ensgin.
