If manipulation were permitted now. if insiders were permitted to trade without diclosure, if margins were down to 20 per cent as of yore, there is no doubt the market would have been wider, deeper, more active. Far more people would have been in and on a larger scale. And, as a result, prices would have gone much higher. And the break would have tome sooner and far more violently. Will the market go up again? Of course that is difficult to say. There is a good deal of anxiety about taxes. The outlook for heavier taxes is certainly not an encouraging one for business—and this has nothing to do with the coundness of the taxes. The notion that the government's persisting deficit caused the crash is so far wrong that the opposite is true. It wax the givernment's deficit which chiefly" caused the rise. That is why the rise was so unwholesome—it was buili on u series of government deficits, on a credit inflation generated by government borrowing. It the government balanced its budget tomorrow and .some other credit force were not set in motion the whole thing would collapse more than ever. In fact, I think it a fair assumption that it was the widely advertised belief that Mr. Roosevelt was really get- tiny around to trying seriously to balance the budget which convinced n lot of people that the inflationary movement was going to be checked and which encouraged them to get out of the market. It looks as if the government's credit is going to b'e greatly curtailed. I do not see any sign of private credit making up the difference. These facts lead me to believe that there is going to tie no boom; that instead an adjustment of some sort is inevitable. But I do not think the country as /i whole is ycsl prepared to believe that. Therefore it is entirely possible that the new recovery in the market may develop some further strength. But it cannot last. Atnti d*tn*M Mf love for Jill. Tfco fvtnt U In (he bnnd« of Palo HOW, CHAPTER VIII P ATTY had dropped by Alan's studio for q cheering word and also with a practical suggestion, Had he ever done illustrating? J»iore was a chance her publisher might be interested in having him submit some sketches. Alan thanked her. But color was his forte. He would feel as helpless as an armless man trying lo express himself, through any medium but paint. "I've had sorrje good fortune since I saw you," Alan said. "A man — I haven't been able to discover who he wqs — bought one of my pictures through n dealer. He paid the unbelievable sum of $3000 for it." "What a brealf!" Patty cried, She was genuinely pleased and bewildered. Here, she -had been giving the old town a black name for coldness and callousness. And straightway it had taken this newcomer to its heart. The bewilderment lasted all the way round the corner to her a; inrtment, where she found Ar- rl, ith Holm stretched out on one 01' the cots, the flowered cover in a wrinkled heap on the floor. "Come to life," she said to Ard&th. "Wonders do happen. That painter fellow has just sold a picture for $3000. What do you think of that for a nice piece of luck?" Ardath sat up and stared at Patty out of her strange eyes, w'hich now had an excited glow in them. "Tell me about.it," she said in her low, throaty voice. "Not much to tell," Patty replied. "I don't think he knows so very much about it either. He said someone — he didn't know the man's name — had bought a picture through a dealer." "He must have some big friends," Ardath drawled. She She stopped. There was a fjucer smile in Ardath's eyes. Her voice sounds rich," Ardalh drawled, Patty stared. This Ardalh wasn't so dumb after all. Jill's voice did sound rich. Well-bred, beautifully modulated. The voice of a thoroughbred, who had had thor- What did you oughbred training, know about that? "Well, it should," Patty replied. "Her father's John H. Wentworth, the millionaire," "Then, she's Jacqueline Wentworth," Ardath gpsped. "Of course. Her friends call her Jill." was a flttg at the door. Alan opened the door of the Ismantled living room and laced Ardath. • "Hello," Ardath said, "How are you?" Alan spoke more formally. Ardath held out a long, slim. land. "Perhaps you don't remem- jer me. I'm Ardath Holm." "I remember you qwiU" well," reached for a cigaret and began to smoke, lazily regarding the circling smoke through half-closed eyes. a. * « y>ATTY was digesting the remark. She rejected it scornfully. "He doesn't know anybody. The seediest crew of people you could imagine have been coming in to sec his pictnres. Except for a lot of browsing down and outs, he knows only you and me—and Jill" If you think Jill had anything to do with this, you're mistaken," Patty continued, crossly. "Jill was wild for him to sell something. But even a rich man's daughter doesn't go around throwing money away on pictures." "Maybe she wouldn't be throwing it away—on a picture." Ardath's voice sounded wise. Thinking it over, Patty came to the conclusion that Jill must have interested some of her wealthy friends in Alan's picture—if she had not been, as Ardath hac hinted, the actual purchaser. I wasn't likely that a purchaser hac dropped out of the skies and lef such tangible evidence of his visit But she would not tell Ardalh Holm this. She wished fiercely that she had not said a word about it. Though, she couldn't see how Jill could be hurt by Ardath's sly insinuations. * * » T^HE last of Alan's pictures had •*• been boxed. He had paid cash for a three months' lease of his new, fur nished quarters. A location which was very different from the roomi he was leaving. The new place was not luxurious. But it had dignity and good taste. Even the most fastidious of visitors would not be able to find fault with its atmosphere. • During the next few days, Alan was a man with two minds. One functioned calmly, rationally for practical purposes. The-other was filled with dreams. With tender phrases, tenderer pictures. With one mind he drove a shrewd financial bargain about the lease. With the other, he was writing the prolog of his great adventure. He was in love. Tremendously in love. And amazing as it was, this lovely girl was his. Tomorrow he would bring Jill to his new place. He would show her how they made tea in English homes. And Jill would sit across a small table and pour tea from the antique silver teapot he bad brought from home. Alan an I rt, was trute. There was something dangerously arresting about this girl. You might not admire her type. But you would never overlook her- in crowd. "I'm afraid t must appear inhospitable. I can't ask you in, Miss Holm. I'm moving. In fact, I have moved. I'm walling now for a cab." I heard you were going away," Ardath spoke, slowly, "and that you had sold a picture." I'm afraid I sounded boastful. Spreading the news. But it was hard to keep. It's pretty great, isn't it?" - "I should say so." Ardath still stood, looking up at him. SUe made no move to go. Alan, restless, eager to be on his way, wondered what more there was to b« said. "Jacqueline Wentworth must l» pleased," Ardath said. "Who—oh Jill." "Her real name is Jacqueline. All her millionaire friends call her Jill, I believe." Color surged to Alan's face, but he said nothing, After a moment, Ardath continued. "Patty said she was wild for you to sell a picture. And you did. It's wonderful what rich people can accomplish, isn't it? But, naturally, the daughter of John Wentworth could do pretty much what she started out to do. You were lucky to pick a friend like this Wentworth girl. I guess you know that." "Yes." Alan's voice was cool and controlled. Rage and anguish within. But this girl—this insufferable girl, who had toppled his world, should not know. "Well, goodby—and congratulations," said Ardath. ^ "Goodby." Alan stood in the doorway of his forlorn, barren, place. He watched the taxi coming toward him. He motioned to the driver and went inside. He picked up the telephone book that hung dejectedly by the phone and opened it with shaking fingers. Yes, there WM the name, and the address. And the number JU4 had given, him.

The mayor's claim that Tammany had made a "pay off" amounting to $739,694 to "27 Tammany district leaders, three ex-Tammany leaders, 233 Tammany county committeemen and many others," came in n prepared statement issued in place of his regular "lesson on good municipal government" which he has been "dedicating" to Mahoney, This alleged "pay off", LaGuardia said, was n "lesson i n Tammany greed," and "is not out of the pocket of any Tammany politician. It is out of the public's pocket." The "Tammany uristacrary," he added, "was paid off" through Democratic Board of Estimate salary additions to the city budget for "useless exempt f.'
