Sometimes teachers and parents wiio do not understand feel that the child'has failed because of laziness and not mental deficiency, whereas a little more attention to the question of reading correctly and rapidly will solve the problem of the child.

S; Is in Business to Stay, He Holds If you are hopefully anticipating the day when the government will be taken out. of business, according to the good old formula of the boom days. don't go to Stuart' Chase for comfort. This stalented writer predicts that d^y will never return; on the contrary, he seys, Uncle Sam will get more and more deeply into business in the immediate future, and business will have to like it. Mr. Chase advances this notion ia a new book, "Government in Business," which is an admirable forecast of the j way government and business relationships may work themselves out under an economy of abundance. He suggests that the government might very properly draw up a national budget, to guarantee the production of enough essential goods and Hex-vices for every citizen. Let the government, then, he ssys, tee to it that production of such thing* is constantly maintained, in Jessie brought home the lamb chops and forgot to put theYn in the icebox.

So she was, but all children are. i Aunt Mary gave Jessie a new purse ! for her birthday und put a dollar in it. j Jessie took it to school and lost it. There was a hole in her coal pocket and she forgot. "Why didn't you tell mo you had. a hole in that pocket?" her mother wanted to know. "You are so careless I don't know what to do with you." She took a five dollar bill to the drug store-when her daddy sent her for cigarets. She came home with three dollars and eighty-five cents, i The mistake was discovered when they i totaled up for the night, and the dol- ', lar was returned, but dad called her ' careless for not counting her change, i From morning until night poor Jessie • was told she was careless about something or other.

' While it is necessary io call chil- ' dren's attention to mistakes and focus j their attention on the importance of i small matters, big ones, too, it is futile ! to get worked up and exasperated over i their many slips. j College instructors bewail the fact '• that there is less and less accuracy amongst students. But in a way I | doubt it. And while we are at it, let use remind ourselves that professors i are the proverbial forgetters. It is not all joke about the old boy who laid his book on the street-car step and then said to his companion, "Will you please put me on the third shelf to the right when you pa.is the library?" Concentration is accountable for most carelessness. Concentration on ; something else than the matter tug- : ging at tlbow leaves the minds un- akrt. Children and young people are f able to concentrate (through interest at the moment) far more iutt-u, ely than grown ups. They live for one ' thinf at a time although that interest : may change quickly. Adults have the happy faculty of keeping various lights blinking in the back of their minds.

Use upward nnd outward strokes and, if vertical lines seem to be your trouble, place fingers firmly between them and smooth outward, flattening the furrows as you do so. Musks, too. help to eliminate wrinkles and lines. Completely relax your face when you start to apply the mask, smooth it generously over forehead and don't wrinkle your brow while it is drying. When you have rinsed it off. apply tissue cream immediately and pat it in thoroughly.

The gray-haired cashier stood i behind one barred window, busy at I whatever it Is that hank cashiers I busy themselves with on dull morn- lings, his eyes abstracted with that j far-away, other-worldly look pecu liar to bankers. At the other wicket there was a youthful teller. In the railed-off space by the from window, which served the president as au office, a slim girl in a white sports dress clicked away at a typewriter. In the dusty street outside a hi? sedan swuug noiselessly to the curb. Three men got out, leaving a fourth seated behind the steering wheel. Had anyone been passing by at the moment, be might have noticed that the driver did not sbut off ll,n motor. Aud if that had drawn bis attention to the men, he most certainly would have stared, pop-eyed, at them. For one of them brought a vicious-looking sub-machine gun out of the back of the car, beld It horizontally at bis waist, mounted the Bteps of the little bank, and turned to look up und down the "Ever see her before?" he asl(cd. j street. Tho other two men walked i swiftly into the bank. j Entering the little lobby they 'proceeded to shatter its Sabbath- like calm. They held ugly automatic pistols in their bands, and they swung their muzzles back and forth in slow, menacing arcs; und : one of them barked sharply, "I'm 'em up, everybody!

Up!" cried the i bandit who had spoken before. i"And no funny business!" ! Ho remained in the center of the i lobby, glaring at his victims with ,a gaze which seemed capable of i looking at all four of them simiil Janeously. His companion walked quickly to tha railing behind which ^the stenographer sat and stepped ,over it. He smirked at the terror- stricken girl. I "Take it easy, sister, nobody's | going to hurt you," he jeered. Then lie opened the wire-netting door I tbat gave access to tha cashier's 'and teller's cages, and walked In. j From beneath his coat he took ;a wide-mouthed canvas sack, anrt 'into H he quickly swept all the cur- -reucy that the shelves and cash ;drawers contained. Then, holding Uue sack with one hand, he thrust the muzzle of bis revolver into the ribs of the cashier. "Now. grandpa," h e said jocosely, "suppose you open that safe over yeftder—and do it dam' quick, too." The cashier gulped, looked about helplessly, felt tiie hard gun-muzzle against his thin chest, and obeyed. Pushing him ahead of him, the O by Robert Bruce 1% OI933 NEA Sirvicvlnc bandltentered.

The driver swung the car out from the curb Just as the town's one policeman, hastily summoned hy a merchant wbo dad witnessed things- Crbro- his- store window across tbe'street, came around- the corner. Helplessly valiant, be ran (toward thff car, revolver In hand. jshotnlng, The snout of the-machine gun protruded from a side window of the car, which was gatherlnB speed. There was a swift, dry sputter of metallic sound, a dozen stabbing spurts of flame—and the policeman, who bad planned to get dome early thnt evening to freeze Ice cream for bis small daughter's birthday party, fell down on the sidewalk and died, • • • 'PHB big sedan sped down the road and was out of sight before anyone had got to the policeman's side. After a time the confusion lessened enough, and the aging cashier recovered enough, so that lie and the teller arid the bank's president, wbo had been summoned by telephone, could begin to reckon up the total of the loss. About the lime they had finished— they found that some $l(i,()()0 in cash and bonds worth $30,000 bad been taken—another big car came whirling to a stop In front of the batik; and out of this one sprang half a dozen policemen from the city, eagei to pick up the trail of the departed unmen. The policemen questioned tho people lu-the.bank. The sheriff and his deputies arrived nnd asked some questions. The entire populace of the little town—45'J, by the last census—seemed to be congregated Just outside the bank, eager to ask still more questions on Its own hook. At last the police captain from the city, after telephoning a general alarm to be broadcast throughout the state, and conferring briefly with the sheriff, turned to the president. "Look," he. Bald, "those birds are probably a hundred miles away by now, and getting farther away every minute. You're a national bank, so this robbery Is a federal offense. Your best stunt Is to notify the regional office of the Department of Justice. They'll have a man out here right away, aud they can go after these birds belter than we can hope to do, because they ran chase 'em all over the United States, If necessary—and It'll be necessary^ too. If i know anything about this sort of thing. ... So why don't you do that? Want me to make the call?" The president agreed, and the policeman got on the pnone and talked to a man In an office 60 miles away. And that was bow it was that late that afternoon Larry Glenu got out of a small coupe and walked briskly Into the bank and presented himself to the president wllb the words. "I'm Glenn, regional director of the Division ol luveatlgatlou of the Department of Justice. Now about tbls robbery—" Mike Hagao listened while Larry brought tna story tbls far. "Okay," be eald.

In. the thlci the battle to reduce this loss of life are state Motor Vehicle Adn trators. Twelve of them, officers and members of the American elation of Motor Vehlcla Administrators, have contributed a serk articles describing the major causes of automobile accidents.

BICKELL Registrar of Motor Vehicles, Ontario, Canada President, Eastern Conference of Motor Vehicle Administrators.! ^O aviator relishes the job of flying blind. Yet many who would not risk piloting a piano, In nn. automobile frequently expose themselves to foolish dangers thnt are very similar to blind flying. They do this trying to PUSH another car on :i curve or u hill when It la Impossible to know if another vehicle is approaching in the opposite- direction. Accidents caused by pass- ings on a curve or hill totaled 9;, r >-IO limt year, bringing death to -170 and injury to 10,330 persons, according to statistics compiled by a member company of the National Bureau of Casualty und Surely Underwriters.

Unanimous (Continued on page three) well as in name." The danger in this is well known through World war experience. Should a war starting in Ethiopia involve Great Britain, every neutral trade problem of the World war would immediately bounce back on the United States and other neutrals. For Britain commands the sea, today as in 1914. The brutal facts of war demand that any country commanding the sea shall cut off all supplies intended for its enemies. No sooner had the World war broken out than Britain announced the intention to cut Germany off from the outside world and starve her into submission. No Chance for Neutrals Actual command of the Mediterranean sea, in case of war involving the British with Italy, is disputed. Airplane and submarine power which Italy concentrates there makes is possible that Italy might prevail over Britain. But Britain controls both entrances to the Mediterranean, Gibraltar at one end and Suez at the other. These would cerainly be closed by the British fleet in event of any Mediterranean war. Would neutrals have any right to enter? Theoretically, of course. But practically, there is not a Chinese chance! The World war had no sooner started than American sea trade with Ger- nany fell in conflict with the natural British policy of using sea power to starve Germany. The United States tried to define its legal rights as a neujral at the outset ay asking both Britain and Germany to accept the Declaration of London is the basis. This was an agreement threshed out by the large countries on what were the rules of neutral rade during a war. Everything "Contraband" Generally, it was thought then that iny country at war had the power to ilockade enemy ports by anchoring warships outside, and to halt shipments of "contraband" to those ports. "Contraband" was then generally egarded as war materials, or food lefinitely destined for soldiers. Germany, whose fleet was cooped up, could do no blockading. So Germany accepted the Declaration of jondon at once. But Britain, commanding every sea ntrance to Germany, accepted only with cautious reservations. Two days after she declared war, he had in the hands of the American jovernment a list of what she was gong to consider "contraband." That list was to grow and grow until it includ- d practically everything. So it will be in another war. Look- id back upon, the whole legal con- orversy, by repeated diplomatic totes about details of these "contra- laiid" and neutral trade rules, seems utile today. Plants Tighten Blockade It is clear today that any country ommanding the sea will halt every hipment of any kind going to any ountry with which it is at war to whatever extent it can, adding the ower of bombing planes to the sub- mbarines developed during the Wrold var. For a bombing plane can stop or ink a neutral ship just as ruthlessly rine or a cruiser can. Any country at war will do this day, for war today is a war of peo|j and any shipmcn^. of aflyjunds^c the receiving people to carry on war. A side of bacon or a different gear-is almost as clearly war mate today as a case of cartridges, The passage of the present neutrality bill before there is anyj to be neutral about it extremelj portant. For America in 1914 handicapped from the first by any such bill. When Congress mot in Dece 1914, Senator Gilbert M. Hitchco Nebraska presented a bill to pr all export of munitions. Inasmuch as it couldn't anyway, Germany applauded, German-Americans acticely .supp the measure. U. S. In Better Position Hitchcock was violently assaile pro-German, while Spring-Rice,. British ambassador, dropped hints where they would do the good, that this munitions embl would be regarded by the Allies : ".unneutral act." Up to that time there had little trade in munitions, but it ginning to look up. And so a co bination of the sentiment which pro-Ally and that which was sin pro-profit beat the Hitchcock tralily plan. Today, with a definite neut policy on the books in advance United States is in a somewhat position. Neutrality is a state of never 100 per cent achieved, stance, on the very heels of Wi}] ippeal for real neutrality, the if Morgan set up a purchasing ag n the United States for the All and was drumming up loans Prance. It was Thomas W. Lamont, MOB partner, who later admitted, firm had never for one moment j neutral; we didn't know how Fro mthe very start we did ever we could to contribute to the cafj the Allies." Action Now Is Essential There were plenty of Ge Amtricans who matched that ment on the other side in nun even if not in influence. Ther ways will be such partisanship, is why government policies dec)j in advance must step in to rob it < incluencc. "Blockading" will be wider in' in another war than in the World which sa wit expanded from the r blocking of harbor-mouths to the claring of whole sea areas as ' zones." / Britain closed the entire Norfh to neutral traffic in the Worjd with mine areas, and Ciurmani, 1 in retaliation, declared the *wa, around the British Isles a/'war'zori With seaplanes and carriers ava| able, it is certainly likely that sue r zones will be widened in the next wan?,' rather than narrowed. And, as thejjri' widen, the "i-igbhts" of neutrals to use'%; the sea highways, war or.no war, be-jf gin to fade into nothing,at a|l.
