Reviving an Issue That "Died" in 1920 PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT'S Chicago .speech compels i Americans to take another look at a question which was supposedly settled once and for all in the League of Nations election in 1920. For although this speech contained not the slightest hint that this country should enter the League, it did point un- rrristakably in the direction of international co-operation along the lines laid down by Woodrow Wilson. In 1920 the country turned that idea down flat, and imagined that its ghost was laid forever. But the ghost proved restless. It stalked abroad from time to time during the twenties, leaving its imprint on the Dawes plan, the Young rjlan, the German moratorium and the series of World Court fights. Now it is back again, as robust and substantial as ever. And it is about time for us to ask ourselves whether the idea of complete national isolation is a sound idea to follow in a world where the ties bind nation to nation is as strong as they are today. xxx •THE LAST few years have been grimly educational. We j 1 have seen the collapse, one after another, of the treaties I and unwritten laws by which national security is buttressed.' We have seen the triumph of dictatorial gangs opposed to every ideal we cherish. We have seen the world building up for a new war that would be more dreadful and calamitous than the last one. Through all of this e have tried to mind our own business; fdr we want very earnestly to be allowed to work out our domestic problems, to find our way out of the recurring cycle of boom and depression, to establish prosperity and justice in our land so that they cannot be shaken. But to do this we need a stable and peaceful world to work in. So we are forced to ask ourselves, now, whether this peaceful and stable world will take shape of itself, in the condition things are in now, or whether we will have to do something to help it along. The question answers itself. The world is getting less stable and less peaceful every day. Pious expressions of disapproval don't mend matters any more than they kept Italy from oyenvhelming Ethiopia, kept Italy, Russia,, and Gei-• many from interfering in the Spanish civil war or kept Japan out of China. If the world goes on drifting it will eventually •drift straight into disaster. : XXX T HE alternative, of course, is to take definite and positive fiction, to'insure peace and stability. It involves taking risfjtg and- making"^enemies. 1 jt means concerning ourselves mote directly and vitally than ever before with the quarrels and intrigues of the old world, , .Do we want to do it? Probably not. And yet we may have to. For if it is risky to do this,'it is just about as risky to do nothing at'all. We must decide which of the two risks we are to take; and we may well find that when the the world is catching fire, we can be safe only by helping to put the fire out. by the use of hand cream artor washing with soap and water, and by frequently washing the hands so as to free them from chemical matrials while at work. Just as soon ns it is realized that any considerable number industrial dermatitis, the industry will itself develop suitable protective methods. NEXT: Metal fume fever. Speedy Syracuse End SYRACUE.—Phil Allen, sophomore end, is just as fast in football togs as Marty Glickman, crack intercollegiate sprinter who plays halfback for the Syracuse eleven.

While Mrs. Smith rages if she sese n duplicate of her exclusive gown nnd berates the importer who assured her thnt no other like it exists, her siniill daughter Is begging for a monkey cap "like all the other girls nre wiiring." or tugging nt her mother's arm to let her have a pnlr of stropped-shoes like Mabel's, Boys nre even more sheeplike than girls in this matter of herd dressing. They don't cars n snnp how awful they look, ns long ns they are in school style. These styles, by the wny, are usually local, nnd there is no way of telling what will strike the ringleaders next. It may be anything from wearing their shirt tails out (o flashing odd stockings on each leg; usually it is something queer and disturbing, be sure. While mothers may try to keep things balanced and insist to a certain degree on regulation dressing and neatness, she will also be wise to allow for the violent need of her boy or girl to be in the swim. If it is all the same to her, instead of buying James a brim hat, so becoming to him, let him have his visor cup, or helmet, that will not mark him as "different." Children will wear lorn clothes or darns, but hate patches. Don't ask me why. They do. thnt is all 1 know. A little sigh is permissible here, because this land of ours was raised on good old patches. But today, mend as you can, dear mother, hut don't m:\ke the patch loo obvious. Work a daisy over it, if you cannot match the material exactly, and conceal your stitches. 'Another thing. They don't mind clothes too little, but they have an abiding hatred about things loo hig. A pity, when James is growing an inch a month, but true, nevertheless. Here we have to he cagey, tt is possible to buy big and have garments shortened with iiltle additional expense. Next year, down they can come. Don't hand James 'all of George's old clothes. Gel James the new outfit every so often. This is pood for George as well us James. Buy shoes that will last, if there is such a thing where boys arc concerned. Cheap shoes kick out too soon and are no saving. Keep something behind the door 'or Sundays. The training is excellent. The idea of reserve and not Using up the last stitch for school wear, has oceans of value. I FLAPPER PANNY 4 - - -••• —-COPC. 1»H aVNCAStlWICt.lNC. t.M to tiiUf b'rcnr "Aml'dkl 1 «ct Miiiu!

Dr. Ralph Tyler of Ohio State University, head of the survey committee, reported that clerk and typist outread their bosses, but that they go in for a different type of literature. The young man clerk is apt to revel in mystery and adventure stories; the feminine stenog goes for romances and "confession" stories. The boss, who gets his nose in a book far less frequently than they do, is more likely to pick up books on social or economic problems. All of which would seem to prove that the young employe has more spare time on his or her hands than the boss has. Maybe it proves that the boss has a greater intellectual curiosity than his underlings. Or—just possibly—maybe it proves nothing at all. I CHAPTER XXXI T was the following Sunday. Cilly was preparing tea in her apartment. She expected Sergeant Dolan. And Jim, of course. But Jim lived here now.

It was a very special feast—a combined wedding supper, thanksgiving and bon Sergeant Dolan checking their bags to the airport. Some time tomorrow they would be in Utah, to welcome Jim's father home. She peeked into the oven, to see if the biscuits had browned sufficiently.

Jnstrad it hud been Hutchin c : whom the bullet had found—the self-opinionated, superior Harry Hutchins. She saw the stream of red dripping from his hand, the gun on the floor where he had dropped it. And behind her, outside the shattered glass of Ames with him. I guess I must hnve been thinking that when all of a sucldt-n, like a series of flash-backs in I ho movies, a dozen other ideas popped into my hfad. Suppose it had been HuU-hins hiding out in 4-A. Then everything else filled together into a perfect picture." Dolan shrugged. "For some people anyhow." "You remember the evening I found the Blueflolds newspapers?" & WaUefield's front door, stood | Cilly went on. "They were thrown This is the eighth of a series of articles in which Dr. Mo.rris Fisli- hein discusses diseases ami other health hazards in industry. (.Vo. 349) In some industries in which p<,rtiou.s of the .skin is due to un yi;cu|,ation there occurs a thickening unci irritation of the skin at various points Among miners the condition :s called beat hand, beat elbow and bent kneo. In the condition called beat hrmd the skin of the palm of the hand is inflamed and swollen from the handle of the pick. The conditions affecting the elbow and the knee are similar ami develop from pressure and friction against the floor and th walls of the mine. Glass blowers get large call use.; on their hands. Workers in tar and petroleum products have the danger not only of the irritation from these substances, but also from the possibility of cancers developing at the spot where the tar and oil may be rubbed into the skin. The physician who is expecting to determine whether or not any disease of th eskin is due to an occupation must rrwke a special study of the case to find out exactly how the irritation occurred. Sometimes the difficulty will be due to some substances with which the worker comes in contact in his home or in his recreation rather than in the plant, Nowadays so many people have photography as a hobby or use lacquers or varnishes around the home that they may suffer from irritations' due to such cases rather than from chemicals with which they come in contact at their work. Recently medicine has developed a method known as the patch test for determining whether or not a skin dis- ea.se is due to some chemical sub- it«nce. In thf; patch test a week solution of the suspected substance is made. Then a piece of absorbent cloth about the si/.e of a dime is saturated in this olution. This small patch is applied to the arm or the leg and is covered y ,'t piece of celophune held in place by a piece.' of adhesive piaster.

Not only once, but twice that evening, Dolan had appeared at the very second when he was most needed . . . And now Harry Hutchins was safely behind bars. * * * T_TE didn't stand a chance. The •*• cards were stacked against him. The evidence Amy had left, behind her was complete: There was the perfect sequence of his activities, from the moment he stnpped from the Utah plane three days following the theft of the bonds the record of the hotel he had gone to immediately, the affidavit of the landlady in whose house he had lived next the various transactions in disposing of the bonds, one at a time. Amy had done it all, single- handed, and given her life for it. she could not know when it was that the other side.

He went upstairs immediately and cleared out any evidence, I suppose. He came here twice just to find out from me how the case was going, to gloat, perhaps, that he was getting away with it so nicely. It was that telephone message he worked so neatly, and the trip that night to Connecticut to mail the note from it Mrs. Elliot to Mr. Johnson, so y o u wouldn't investigate her apartment Did you check on the phone call, sergeant?" "Yes, it was just as you thought. Hutchins rushed down from the roof and phoned Gloria Harmon from the apartment upstairs. Then, after ho got away from here, he hurried back to his hotel and recorded the call himself on the switchboard operator's pad. Neither of the night operators remembered doing it." * * * 4iT WAS sure of that!" Cilly ex•* claimed. "Remember that hotel, Jim? We 'iad dinner there one evening. It's such a small place, and I ,^uess there's only one man on duty at night, to run the elevator and handle the switch- board and sit at the desk. It was simple for Hutchins to write the number down himself. Probably just about that time—one o'clock or so—there's a change of operators anyway. Of course, you'd have discovered it anyway, sergeant, as soon as the telephone bills came through." Dolan shook his head. "I doubt it. If we definitely suspected him, we could check, of course, but otherwise—" He shrugged. "The hotel operator would never say anything about it. That would be reminding the telephone company that they'd forgotten to charge for one call, and few people are that honest. There'd be no special record of it on the telephone bill to Mrs. Elliot because it was a local call from here. No, I don't think we'd ever have caught him on the telephone slip-up. He's slick. He figures things out carefully. I worked all Friday trying to get somebody at the Ralston to identify him: he was there, I know it, to plant the bonds and that blus'belt, but not a soul saw him. Oh, he'd have gotten away with tho whole thing, if it weren't for that evidence in the safety deposit box. What bothers mo is the reason he didn't try to get it sooner, Don't you suppose, Jim, that he heard Amy tell you about it up on the roof?" Jim shook his head. "He couldn't have heard everything we said. We were over near the edge, you see, and he must have been behind one of the furnace stacks. We'd have seen him other^ wise . . ." His voice trembled, and he lowered his eyes, as if to hide a guilt. He would always feel this guilt, whenever his meeting with Amy on the roof was mentioned. He felt personally responsible, as if he alone had lured her to her death. Dolan laid a sympathetic arm across his shoulder. "Try to forget how it happened, Jim," Dolan urged, very kindly. He folded his napkin laboriously, cleared his throat. Then, in the brusque, severe voice that had so often frightened Cilly, he added: "Well, I enjoyed the supper . , . best biscuits I ever ate, Priscilla. What a girl you are! Smart, good- looking, and a good cook besides! Say, if ever the old man doesn't treat you right, just rerfember me, will you?" He grinned, and they all got wp from the table. A. few minutes later, Cilly and Jim, arm in arm, watched him from the window as he disap-. peared. down the street. By Bruce Catton Art Is Exciting, ns Van Loon Sues It. 'Hendrik Van Loon studied 30 years in preparation for "The Arts" (Simon and Schuster: $3.95). He spent another 10 years writing it. The result is a hook that at once takes its place with "Van Loon's Geography" and his "Story of Mankind." "The Arts" may uvun prove the author's most useful work. Admit- Like Thrills? Ring Up Miss Miles HOLLYWOOD—If you ever have a dangerous job that must be perform- ledly il is his tmost ambitious. Here. in some 700 fascinating pages, is the story of painting and sculpture and architecture and music, as well as the s-o-called minor arts, from Ihe days of the cavemen until the present. 'And as usual, Mr. Van Loon is easy to read. The Dulch scholar has no |,alienee with "that terrible old slogan, 'art for art's sake.' " He discusses the arts concurrently and the manner is unique. For you read not merely of tho lowering figures— W a g n e r, Beethoven. Giotto, Michelangelo—but you explore a thousand bypaths, learning how violins arc made, how orchestras arose, how a German wholesale grocer re-discovered early Mediterranean civilization for us. Troubadors, minnesingers, monks, saints, criminals, bohemians and generals; all troop before you in "The Arts." Here at last emphasis is laid on the human beings who made art— the art of all centuries. And for good measure the author has splashed his book with a brilliant depth of color, inimitable in the Van Loon style. There are 48 illustrations in full color, 32 in wash and nearly 100 illuslralions in line by Ihe author. —P. G.
