XXX Coddling the Weeds Where Crime Blooms nation's determination to stamp out crime has long '] 1 *1been celebrated in song and story. It is only equaled, prob- " ably, by the lighthearted and carefree way in which the nation t handles its criminals after it gets hold of them. The recent episode of the jailbreakers at Cleveland is a t good illustration. <* v " CLEVELAND has a fine new jail—one of the "escape proof" .' v^ type that you hear so much about. In it, among others, " v \«ere three desperate bank robbers who had distinguished "themselves a few months before by breaking out of the .Missouri state prison. One sunny fall afternoon the wife of one of these des- ^'peradoes went to the jail to see her husband. The obliging ""jailers let her visit him in a closed room, with no giiards ' present. , A little while after she left he showed up with a couple »of revolvers. With them he overpowered the guards, obtained •the release of his two conferes, made his way out of the jail, -I commandeered an auto, and set out madly for the great open *^*l ' The flieht of the felons was a wild affair. Their car went zipping through crowded downtown streets at 60 miles an hour, or thereabouts. Their car hit a woman, inflicting. rprobaWy fatal injuries; it endangered dozens of the other "people, and the running gun battle .its occupants waged with ^pursuing police had a good part of Cleveland looking anxiously jfor.ihe cyclone cellar. In the end, the three jail-brakers got I cleanly away. * y 'OW the point to all this is that the good people of Cleveland - . a few years previously had dug down in their pockets to 'build a substantial, up-to-date jail; none of your dilapidated v crates out of which any ingenious crook could cut his way with fa can opener, but a solid affair of steel and stone, equipped 'with all the latest improvements in the way of locks and r^ Having done this, however, the people elected a bumbling "-'handshaker of a politician as sheriff. He took charge of the ijail, and proved so unbelievably inept that when the wife of a Desperate criminal visited the jail he failed to have his ideputies search her, and permitted her to be closeted alone Clwithier husband.- i So Cleveland's Tine new jail turned out to be a sieve, 'three badly-wanted men got away, and the lives of many m- •nocent citizens were endangered. The case is worth dwelling on because it is more or less "typical. We yell for up-to-date crime-fighting tools—and then 'fentrust them to politicians who couldn't be trusted to pour stagnant water out of a boot. And then we wonder why we don't make more headway in our war against crime. A Good Preachment But rt Weak Novel Robert Brieffault continues with his bitter, passionate description of a society collapsing through its own rottenness in his new novel, '"Europa in Limbo" (Scribner's: $2.75). A sequel to his best-selling "Europn," this book surveys European civilization fro mthe moment of its catastrophe in 1914 to the confused and discouraged twilight of the curly 1920's. In it Julian Bern, the young British intellectual through whose eyes Mr. Briffault surveys the state of the world, experiences the shock of war. drifts to Russia to witness revolution nnd count- er-revclution, and returns to Englam to look on in utter disillusion as the empire strives to regain its pre-war values. As Mr. Briffault sees it, European society—acphalist society, that is—is doomed. There remains, to him, but one question in the modern world: how soon and in what manner will capitalism's colapse become complete, ro that a complete Communist society can be built? That anything but utter collapse can take place, Mr. Briffault indignantly denies. His thesis is moving and his manner is sincere; and yet, as a novel, "Europa in Limbo" seems to me to be a complete failure. It is a tract, a preachment, a cry of anger against great abuses—but a coherent, convinc- Film Tiger Is No Gentleman; He Ritzes the Ritz Brothers •N XXX HOLLYWOOD.—All over the lot: For his "Follies.'' Samuel Goldwyn finally got the Ritz Brothers where they belong—in a cage. The three wild men of the Hollywoods are introduced in tho picture under their own names, but as the proprietors of a traveling Zoo—"Every animal an actor—every actor an animal." In small barred compartments, their truck houses a monkey, n rooster and a pig. In n huge cage cowers a very young and imhnppy tiger. So small is he that he easily can slip between UIL' bars, and that's just what he does, repeatedly. Protected by a sub-machine gun, a chair and a revolver, the rcsplendently uniformed Ritzes all arc in the cage with the baby tiger. They advance in close formation, taking no chances but determined to conquer the beast "Lie down!" yells Harry. "Stand up!" shouts Jimmy. "Got back!" howls At "Come here!"—"Sit up!"—"Roll ever"—all these in a chorus of confused commands. Time after time the tiger slithers through the cage bars and is nabbec by menagerie men.

Also it has to be put away from day to day and resumed on the morrow. Slow, tedious, thorough. 'The keynotes of true accomplishment. Hobbies offer a splendid medium also in fostering thoroughness. A garden does not grow overnight, nor a photograph materialize in a second. Developing and printing are tedious, but justified by results. Capture Interest We use the interest of children as a starting place for most valuable lessons, and so I have used interest as an example. But gradualy the child must grow in power and include those tedious things that are not conceived in interest. He should, in short, be growing in mature thinking and feeling, and not remain an emotional infant all his life. Men and women who rove and arc never satisfied with the work of the moment are usually emotionally immature. Formed in childhood, this habit has never ceased to grow.

Anatole Litvnk, though, is a director who likes to take ench scene a dozen or more times. Hundreds of pounds of cornflakes were dropped and wasted while Claudctte Colbert and Charles Boyer spoke their lines again and again. Finally, when it looked as though there would be no more cornflakes left, a supervisor ordered property men to sweep up the "snow" and return it to the hoppers. The men swept diligently and loo well. Along with the cornflakes they gathered nails, blocks of wood and other debris of n movie set. When the bins Wore opened the snow descended with all the clatter of a hailstorm.

Not Seeking fwliOfy Japan's views were reasserted by General Sugiyama, minister of war, who asserted that Japan wants no Chinese territory, but Is concerned with punishing those Chinese leaders respontible for anti-Japanese sentiment. "Apparently there is much misunderstanding in the world regarding Japan's aims," he said, "To state them simply, we are determined to punish the elements in China responsbile for anti-Japanism." He said this meant "smashing them until they surrender completely; until they hold their hands high and cry for Jcipan to cease," General Sugiynma displayed n collection of battered slugs which he said were dum-dum bullets used by the Chinese in violation of international law. He saod the sluys were taken from the bodies of Japanese soldiers. for the scene in which Zorina, premie sailer! na, rises from the surface of ,ily pound and goes into her danc with the American Ballet girls. The water is cold, but that's nothing to the chills which Zorina's costume probably will give the Hays Office. She wears a gold veil and not much else. Her curly hair looks as though it should go straight and bedraggled while she's submerged—but it won't. Makeup experts have saturated her hair with chellac. Zorina's dancing partner is William Dollar, called "Dollar Bill." Nobody knew whether he slipped on a wet spot or misjudged one of his Nijinsky jumps, but in he fell, full-dress suit and all. 'Someone did remember afterward, however, that there had been an order for more lilies in the pound. All morning Zorina is busy diving for a false fingernail lost in the water —a fingernail applied in place of the one that came off when she caught her hand in the door of her new car. Shark Trouble The shark fight scene for "Hurricane,"' with Jan Hall, is being filmed in the tank at United Artists. Two dead sharks, filled with air and balanced with lead weights, are being towed around with wires and are giving a lot of trouble because they keep burping and deflating themselves. The big fish are interesting to watch from a distance, but a dead shark by any other name is still no rose. On the set of "Tovarich" the other gard Japan's position and claim." .litpan to Pay No Heed The Japanese Foreign Office was quoted Friday as saying that no matter what decision a nine-power conference may make, the Japanese empire's "fundamental policy" will remain unchanged. The Japanese News Agency reported that the Foreign Office spokesman declared "Japan is confident she will prove equal to the contingency, no natter what measures the powers take Tgainst her." The Foreign Office was said to believe, in view of the United States Department of State's disapproval of Japan's actions in China, that signatories of the nine-power treaty would be called into session by the League of Nations. Japan is one of the signatories of this treaty which, among other things, binds the signers to respect the sovereignty of China. The Foreign Office made it clear that Japan would not participate in any meeting of treaty powers. Statesmen "Surprised" Japanese statesmen were "surprised and bewildered" at President Roosevelt's declarations in Chicago concerning "concerted action" against aggressor nations and the subsequent State Department condemnation of Japan. "We had been certain prior to this that the United States understood the situation better than any oher country in he world," a statesman said as Japanese officials were called emergency session at the Foreign Office to discuss the news.

Growths are easily removed by the use of electric coagulation, heat, X-ray, radium or surgery. In these cases 'many doctors prefer surgery because it will clean out the growth completely and permanently without damaging the normal tissue. , Old people who suddenly suffer from irritation of pigmented spots on the skin should have these attended by a competent specialist in diseases of the skin. He will occasionally remove them by the use of carbon dioxide in the form of carbon dixoide snow or he may remove them with the knife, the X-ray of radium.

Cilly wondered if other hearts beat as furiously as her own. She moved her chair a little to the left in order not to be so directly behind the woman. She dreaded missing a word of her story. "Yes, Mrs. Downey?" Sergeant Dolan urged. • "It was about 4 o'clock in the morning. I was so unset, I tell you, fl'm i I couicuvi sleep mu.ch /nore that night. I kept hearing that poor girl's scream over and over again. Lucille was »p, too, until after 2 o'clock, but I gave her one of my sleeping powders— she had to be to school in the morning—and she fell asleep. "I stayed awake. I was afraid to take a powder myself for fear something else might happen. I had the funniest feeling, sergeant. I kept thinking if I fell asleep I might walk in my sleep and fall out the window just as that poor girl had fallen. I tell you, I'll never forget it . . ." Sergeant Dolan tapped impatiently on the desk with his pencil. 44T GUESS it must have been - about 4 o'clock," she went on.

So I thought if Mrs. Wheeler were nervous, she might just as well come in and spend the rest of the night with us, and sleep on the couch. I went to the door to tell her so. "And then, just as I was about to unlock the door, I heard a low voice in the hall. It was only a whisper, but it was a man's voice —you know how loud a man usually whispers. So I just opened that little peep-hole on my door to see if the man was really coming out of Mrs. Wheeler's. He was, all right. I could see him plain as day, with the hall light shining right in his face. He was still whispering. I heard him say. 'Everything will be all right, Helen. Nobody'll suspect . . .'" Sergeant Dolan straightened, his pencil poised in midair. "You're sure you heard that, Mrs. Downey? You're sure those were the exact words?" # JH + MRS. DOWNEY pressed her lips together positively. "I'm absolutely ct-i'tnin, sergeant," she said emphatically. "Mind you, I didn't just wake up out of a sound sleep like I do sometimes. I didn't imagine this.
