Shocking-, But Even Brain Trusters Have Hangovers .'. .' General Casts His Vote for Loin Cloths. By RODNEY DOTCHEB NBA Washington Correspondent WASHttJGTQN.-Jack Gamer, the vice> president, is somewhere down around Uvalda, Texas, for a summer of hunting, fishing, and loafing. he left, he blasted one large •illusion concerning him and carefully nourished another one. - He trampled with both feet on current reports that he was out of sym- •pathy with the Roosevelt program. That was in a statement lauding the New $eal, issued by the Democratic National Committee. - 'Those; who have ! 'Heard Garner speak 1H'private of "that feller down in the rwtite House" didn't need his public assurance that he would follow Roosevelt through the .fires of hell if F. D. ^happened to be going,that way. The fact is, Jack is a small town i.banker and he just loves the way fioosevel thas /freed the government of Wall Street control. - But Garner also let his name be signed to a magazine article in which YOUR CHILDREN By Olive Roberts Barton Parents, Be Firm in Guarding Possessions From Children "If I want a, clean dress shirt for. a party," .repealed an outraged father, 1 havelto/'hide it two days ahead of time, for 1 know darn well Red will get there first and I'll find an empty drawer when I begin to get ready." Added a mother, "And I put my best stockings on in the morning if I want them for afternoon, or Rita will be hiking all over the country in them. I haven't a vote on my own clothes." Both of which statements may sound untrue or weak-minded to the uninitiated, but are neither, as the parents of great big children will attest. "Lock the . doors, the drawers and set steel traps. That's what I'd do." shout .the bachelors, the spinsters and the childless. ''It's' nobody's fault but their' own."

SIDE GLANCES By George Clar judging someone else too harshly, try to put yourself in his or her place and it's more than likely that you will find yourself thinking up excuses for the pel-son. Try to overlook the defects in others and to see their good points instead. Remember that none of us is perfect. By judging other people as you'd have them judge you, you're sure to be happier, and there-fore more beautiful. Blowouts were responsible for only about one per cent of all 1933 motor vehicle deaths.

Garner argued vigorously ' need. They fuss but they don't really care." .•";". Which is a perfectly untrue thing. Parents Must Be Firm Parents are human beings. They treasure'belongings which have cost a struggle to get. And they are particularly .proud of their own personal effects, be they shirts, stockings or needle-point pilows. The truth is that against the practice. He insisted officials shouldn't take the money available only because they held public positions. - Roosevelt., argued from one end of 'thfr table. Garner from the other. "Nearly half tiifc cabinet supported .Garner! But the practice continues.

There is a difference in these young sprigs, of course. Not all will appropriate family possessions. Like everything else in training, the right attitude must be cultivated in early childhood.

Even if they don't touch then l they are never-mightily interested. j It is one thing about which I shoulc i not declare a truce. They like us bet i ter if we come right out and say ' "That's mine.

"I always ring when Kitty's here." "As If Kitty didn't kuow. Don't be silly." There was a pause and Thorpe, sighing, rose to leave. "Jane," ho asked. Hesitatingly, "How nre you off for money?" "I am all right, and it doesn't concern you anyway." "I couldn't go without asking you. If you should happen to need any, just call me up." "Where? At your house?" She had felt so sophisticated, so free—she had believed so certainly that the marriage ceremony was no more than mumbo-Jumbo, meaningless ( to honest minds, worthless to honest lovers, just.'a lot 6t; wards that tie up people into an Inconvenient, stifling Intimacy. She'had not minded in the least that Thorpe himself was married. She was. she told him. above the pettiness of wanting legal possession of his name. And to tell the truth. ,her views along that line had not altered at alL She was honestly glad sue hadn't married him.

His ! was happier with him thau she bad first kindness, when she was find-| ever been. She imagined them as ing the office stale and difficult; and then, his personal Interest, and uer response, flattered and confident.

Also they i shocked him. Jane ought to havo; been terrified. Sho ought to havej cried and she ought to have clung \ to him and implored him to help ;her. But sho did none of thesa things. Sho laughed at his flustered reasonings and arguments. Sho assured him that tho things s said didn't apply to her. His resistance strengthened her obstinacy. Ho couldn't make her see what an utter little fool she was and presently reached tho stage of reproof nnd command. And then tho last remnant of glamour was off Thorpe for Jane. fYNE lengthy acid quarrel sue^ ceeded another. Jane pointed out to him that In brains nnd business ability she was quite his equal, f not his superior, and that she had been able to catch, uud stop various bad holes in tho scheme by which they had profited nt Kandel's expense. There was sufficient truth in this to flick Thorpe's self-esteem on the raw. Sho said sho never had thought It sporting of him to ise her place In Mr. Kandel's confidence to better himself, and that she was pretty sure he cared for iier only to use her in this way. Slie also pointed out ho wasn't supporting her, that ho never had done so nnd that such presents ns he had given her—that brooch and bracelet of sapphires and pearl, the crystal fruit dish for her dining table, the gold cigaret case and so forth, sho would gladly return to him. She reminded him that she was 15 years younger than he, had never had a lover, that he was married, established, and knew perfectly well what he was doing. Though he knew it was the truth, he knew also that It was qualified and explained by much other truth less advantageous to Jane's case for herself, but which ho could not j fling back at her. The necessary restraint did not endear her to him. Still his sense of responsibility would not let him leave her until he was driven away. And now she had driven him away. And the long hard wave of disgust for him and for herself— though this she would never have admitted to him—which had carried her through this last scene, bad subsided and she was spent and done. There was no one In the world on whom she could rely for the grace and solace of companionship, and she wanted companionship.
