Economic Issues and the Church's Role •<-Y\NE of the most interesting experiments of recent years is J U about to be undertaken by the Congregational and fhris- ' tian churches of the United States. They are going to hold a —rplebiscite of their members on economic issues, including: ."unemployment and relief, agricultural prices, labor organizations, tariffs and other trade barriers, public utilities, consumers' co-operatives—and capitalism. W .*.X ,, . thiring the next few months the questions will be studied *-~and debated. Some time next year a vote will be taken to see how the members of these churches stand on these matters. •'-• - It will be interesting to see what conclusions are reached ; • even more interesting, however, is the fact that the vote is - being: taken at all. For these churchmen have agreed to debate and vote on the most vitally controversial issues of the day. They certainly cannot be accused of remaining aloof from life's major problems—or of being afraid to pick up a 1 hot potato. The first question that will occur to most people, probably, is: Are these matters, properly, any of a church's busi- - ness? Is it necessary, or even advisable, for a church to take a stand on them? What have such things to do with pure religion ? An excellent answer is contained in the current issue of Advance, the Congregationalists' monthly magazine. "XXX "THE affirmation: 'I am come that they might have life,' 1 and the prayer: 'Give us this day our daily bread' are adequate warrant for every effort we make to achieve economic justice and economic security." says Advance. "The struggle to end the dominion of poverty, destitution, and want is basically a religious struggle. It is an attempt to make the will of a just and loving God prevail among men." Nor is that all. For, continues the magazine: "The abundant life-means the communion of the soul with God, but it also means a.healthy body, a sound mind, 'hope, ambition, peace. The child exploited in the cotton fields, Svith the burden of poverty upon his malnurished body, starved of beauty, finds God but a remote hope and often sees Him not at all. Men and women working long hours, receiving poor wages, torn constantly with the fear of eviction and lossxif job, Harried by debt and worried about medical " bills, are often too bewildered even to wonder about God." And, lastly: w -"Thequestions of deep import are always those on which • there is the most vigorous difference of opinion. And a religion which is realistic and which goes deeply into the perplexity of any generation must of necessity deal with those questions." Transplanted Furore '"TT'PROBABLY is an astute move that the motion picture high 1 command is making, in planning to hold its gaudy, semi- histerical "world premieres" of motion pictures in other cities than Hollywood. " Seattle gets the first one, with movie stars, formal dress, flood lights, microphone, and all the rest of the trimmings lined up for the opening of the picture, "The Barrier." on October 29. Later on, other films will "open" in various other cities, with the same splurge in each case. ^ As a means of publicity, and as a device to bring the Tfans into contact with the stars, all of this will probably be ""•extremely effective. And yet—well, somehow, this kind of thing has always seemed typical Hollywood. It is the sort of thing to be expected of that surprising and fantastic place. Will it go so well in sober, less-movieized cities? CAST ttP tm.\iiA.CTBft8 PtttSClM.A PIKIU'R — hetolu*! »OUHK wnmnn attorney. AMV KKltft—flllr'" roonimil«* llml murtlpri'F 1 * Tlrtlm.

She knew, beyond the shadow of H doubt, that she had not opened It. Someone from Uie outside had reached over and pushed the window up, very quietly, so that in the excitement of. talking with Jim, she hnd not noticed. Why had it been done? Suddenly, Cilly saw the reason for that window having been opened so stealthily. The man wanted to hear what was being said! He might have recognized Jim, seen him come to the house. He might—oh, a thousand might- have-beens. . . . The thing was that he had heard the entire case against mm. \Vlu,;:":r suspicions had linked in his mind were realities now. He had heard Jim's complete story. He had heard about the evidence against him in Amy's safety deposit box! * * » CTRANGELY, Ciily did not real^ izc at the moment that she was in the same clanger, since Jim had told her everything. All she could think ol was that Jim must be warned. Somehow she must get to the Cannon Building before this man who had listened at the window. , . . IE only Sergeant Dolan were here, to go with her! But she couldn't wait for him. Every minute was important. She thought of the officer upstairs in the vacant apartment. But he had orders to remain there. . . . In the end, she left a message with him for Dolan. Would the sergeant follow her to the Cannon Building, just as quickly as he could? It was important, tremendously important. She took the subway to Manhattan. That was fastest. Jim, in his urgency, might have taken a taxi. But Cilly knew the subway would get her to the Cannon Building to half the time U Would take a taxi, even though every second of the trip would seem an eternity. For the first five minutes of Ihe trip, she was in an agony of suspense. It was as if the car were a prison, holding her backward; she pressed her body hard against the seat and beat a mad tattoo with her feet to speed the train forward. Then, quite suddenly, every muscle in Cilly's tense body relaxed. For a long, breath-taking moment she sat there, very calm and very still. She had been asleep, and had just awakened. She knew who the murder was! * * * AS the train roared its way un^ der the river, she went back in her mind over the whole case. The pieces fitted together in a perfect pattern. What a blind fool she had been! What a stupid, unreasoning fool! She recalled Die events which followed Amy's death on Sunday night; she remembered standing in the kitchen before going to bed. And then, Ihe most important piece of evidence in the whole case, which she had completely forgotten until this minute. . . . The dumbwaiter. She had heard it descending slowly; passing the level of her own kilchen and continuing down to the basement. That was how the murderer had left the house. It was nil so clear now. Mrs. Downey had heard him running down the stairs from the roof. He had reached the second floor, entered Apartment 2-A. And from there he had taken the dumbwaiter . . . while Cilly stood , in her kitchen, listening to it, too i stunned to realize what it might Imean. Fourteenth street. . . . Pennsylvania Station. . . . Cilly got off the train and flew up the stairs. The Cannon Building was just around the corner. , * * * 'T'HE lobby was empty. Usually -*• a night elevator man remained on duiy. . . . Yes, one of the cars was coming down. Casey, the night man, stepped out. "Hello, Miss Pierce!" he exclaimed. " Tis a queer time to be < coming to work now, isn't it?" Cilly dragged him back into the car. "Hurry, Casey," she cried, "I've got to get upstairs. . . . Did you just take someone up?" "Just this minute, ma'am. A young gentleman, It was, saying he wanted to go to your office. ... He had the key and all. . . ." "Was he alone?" •* **•« "Sure, he was. Not another soul's been In the building since 10 o'clock" He brought the elevator to a stop nt her floor. "Do something f.or me, Will you, Casey?" Ciily begged hurriedly as she stepped out. "Go downstairs and get a policeman—just as quick as you can . . . something terrible may happen. . . ." She ran down the corridor, turned a corner, passed her own office, and continued on to Ames & Wakefteld. She noticed the light shining through the transom. Jim was there, alone, and she was in time! Breathless, she opened the door. Jim was trying lo pick out Amy's desk, according to the position Cilly had described. He spun around to face her. "Cilly! Cilly, darling, what';, the trouble?" "Jim, I know who did it! He listened, Jim, he liilcned at my window while you were telling me about it. He'll be here nny minute, I know il. He won', let you get hold of that evidence. Jim, he'll kill you!" Jim readied out, put his arms on her shoulders. "There!" he assured her, "we're safe for the moment. Cilly, tell me, who is if Who is il? If I could only get my two hands on him. . . ." "What do you think you'd do, my hero?" Simultaneously, Cilly and Jim whirled to face this new voice. The door of Harvey Ames' private office was open; Harry Hutchins •stood on the threshold, coverina them both with a gun. There was the snme old cock 4 sure smile on his lips, but hi;, hand never waver:d as it leveled the revolver at them. "My dear Priscilla," he gloated, "nothing you have ever done has pleased me more. Now I have the tsvo of you here together, the only two people in the world who stand in my way. , . ." Cilly thought of Lot's wife, changed lo a pillar of salt as she turned to look back. In her case, however, she had become a column of solid ice the moment she turned to see Harry Hutchins. But Jim was all fire now—all fire and fury. He sprang forward, heedless of the gun. Cilly heard the safety catch click. Only a second now— She shut her eyes, afraid to sea Jim go down before her . . . then she heard the shot, intermingled curiously with the sound of crashing glass. . . .

Born during the Mexican war, Leonard grew up as America grew and as his home town, Ferrisburg, changed with it. Then the war of the state first flared in 1860 Leonard was in college. In the years that followed he became lawyer, congressman, judge, father, implacable foe of intrenched interests. He battled as did Ajnerica and he emerged into old age finally deeply scarred. People honored Leonard Westerfield but he felt himself that his life had been defeat. He felt lie had been choked in the relentless process of chang.

Serious Infections May Be Due to Irritation of Worker's Skin This is the seventh of a series of articles in which Dr. Morris Fish- lieln discusses industrial diseases and ways in which the worker's health may be guarded. (No. 31S; Innumerable substances with which workers regularly come into contact may produce more or leas serious reactions in the skin. These reactions are of various types. Some of them are simply a chemit-dl burning of the skin or irritation. The others are infections of the skin by the germs which are always present and ready to attack when the skin is broken. Etill others are chronic irritations which resemble eczema and sometimes the irritations are so persistent that they develop the nature of cancer. Any one of these irritations or inflammations of the skin may he associated with a secondary infection by some other organism. .Sometimes, just the use of soap and water, as in the case of washer women, will cau..t eczema of the skin. From time to time various irritants, have been listed by specialists in diseases of the skin. In one of the most recent lists there are hundreds of different drugs and combinations of drugs, and associated with this a list of occupations in which irritant .substances regularly used may bring about disturbances of the skin. There ia hardly an occupation known to mankind in which this posibility does not exist. One of the most common forms of ••irritation of the skin in an occupation is that resulting from a contact with oil. This is usually called oil folli- euiitis. A reaction on tht- skin occurs from it mixture of oil and dirt which blocks the follicles of the hair. Then the glandular secretion is blocked and inflammation develops. With this inflammation there will be a secondary infection by pus-forming germs. Usually the condition occurs first on the hands but it may also be seen in other parts of the body Sometimes these minor infections extend so that they become boils. Workers in grinding industries sometimes have the skin broken by metallic dust or fine steel chips which mingle with the oil and which may then be rubbed into the skin. Here also secondary infection occurs frequently. NEXT: Other forms of skin infection.

Even u neglected child, iic- custoined to rags and not particularly conscious of his looks, will preen and strut when suddenly dressed up. H is ns natural for people to renct happily to clothes us for n cat to wash its face. This being the case, plus the discovery that color has a definite psychological value, we find mothers today far ahead of their forebears in splccl- iug clothes for their offspring. Not so lout; UKO it was considered poor taste to deck out the milo in anything but white, tan or blue. The more "genteel" the family the greater tendency there was to lean over backward and restrain color. I have known children who were confined lo tan uniforms for day wear and white in the lute afternoons at "dressing time," while their happier neighbors on the side street were glorying in bluus and pinks. a( least. Let Child Cliooso But there has come u change in all this. Just as wo now buy nursery furniture in gny pastels for baby, and in stronger shades for the pre-school- er, wo are going in for a riot of color in clothes. And il is right. It is still j more right to allow the child some say j in what he or she is to wear. Children j have marked preferences and they feel i better in lavender, green or red. ns the j case may be. i Then there is Ihe mutter of jewelry. For yours imd years the mother of refined tiistf rofuspd to think of it in terms of her small child. Even the littlp ring or locket was barred, and 1 remember presenting a five-year- old one time with « short string of pnle coral beads the color of tin angel's lips, only to have the mother say, "Mary will wear these when she is older." 1 never saw them again. They wore so clninly and lovely, to say nothing of the cost, that 1 was dismayed. They were not jewelry in the accepted sense, but a fitting adornment for n perfect child. Tnwdriness is another thing. Chil dren are jewels themselves and are better off without spangles. But today's mother allows the little keepsake, the ring or locket, and it detracts nothing. Children love a trinket, so why deprive them, when we ourselves lead everything imaginable on our own necks, wrists, ears und hands?

These are three things to remember in dressing the child past babyhood.

Overdressing is still bad taste, and simplicity is still in style. But why we ever got the notion that gaiety in children's raiment was wrong and common. I'll never be able to tell you.
