Obstacles hi the Way of Boycott Plan O NE .of .the most entertaining bits of business this winter ought to be the attempt to persuade the American woman to stop wearing silk stockings in order that the villainous 'Japanese may be foiled of their designs on China. From the shapely legs of American womanhood to the muddy battlefields of Shanghai may seem like a long jump. But there is a connection, spelled simply in the one word : boycott. The argument runs something like this. Japan js making war on China in plain violation of all existing treaties. If one nation can treat another nation so. no nation is safe from the threat of force; America, accordingly, must do her part to restrain the Japanese. -' But the Japanese don't restrain easily. They have, in fact, shrugged off all protests. And no American cares to see his country go to war to make the protests effective. There remains, then, only the boycott. If all lovers of peace and good-will will stop buying Japanese goods, the Japanese will see the error of their ways and the dove of peace will flutter once more over war-racked China. Which brings us back to silk stockins. * * * TAPAN'S principal export to this country is silk. If. we ar,e ** going to boycott Japan, we have got to stop buying silk. And if we are goin gto stop buying silk, we have somehow got to persuade the American woman to encase her nether limbs in something besides silk stockings—in lisle, in rayon, or perhaps in the plain old-time cotton article. .And that, when you ston to think about it, is going to be something of a job. Never has there been a country as leg- conscious as modern America. The American woman, you might say, struggled for generations to win recognition of her right to wear silk hose day in and day out, regardless of her station in life. Anyone who imagines that she is readily going to surrender that right, even for a noble and alturistic cause, mav well have another guess coming. All of which compels one to wonder just how effective these international boycotts—talked of so freely, these clays —are ever going to be. There seems to be a school of thought which would substitute the boycott fQr war, which would make of it a 'padded club by'which an erring nation may be clubbed bloodlessly back, into good behavior. On paper it is all. very simple. In actual'.practice it may be quite different. •For we buy goods in international trade, not because we admire the people who made them, but because we like to have the goods. It is going to take deep and strong emotion to make such boycotts successful. Is our desire to see Japan restrained, for instance, quite as sincere and universal a our wish to have the American woman continue to wear silk hose? Maybe it is. If ,so—watch out, Japan. But then again, maybe it isn't.

"—— By Olive Roberts Barton Any Home Where Child Thrives Is Garden Spot Why we do have to be kinder to tiny children than to loder ones? Because they are more appealing, because they are more helpless? That is one reason, but not the real one. I know of no~better way to ddescrie it than to compare the child to n plant, any plant. The gardener \vatches for the first delicate green of the delphi- tiful stalk and gorgeous blue flowers, higher than his head sometimes, will be the crowning glory of his work. To see the tender thread of stalk and the fragile green oE the tiny leaves, almost infinitesmal at first, it is virtually impossible to believe that tremendous strength will develop from such beginnings. There is not only strength, but the force within itself to push ahead and develop into something worth while. Gardener's Task But this gardener knows that these forces need cherishing and care. Otherwise he may have a twisted stalk, a sterile plant or a weakling. Plenty of water, gentle sun, no weeds to rob it of nourishment and no strong fertilizer to burn it. If he gives it elbow room and nium, for example, whoso strong, bcnu- have killed it at first. In itself it hns established an immunity to injury tlint it did not possess in infancy.

Environment Must lie Kight P'-'rhaps the soil is not right. The i home and daily environment may be anything but happy. This little fel- I low may have no pence. He may not | have enough to do .Maybo people tease him. Perhaps he is mil well. He is imitative, and copies umlesirnhle friends. Routine, so necessary to good behavior, may be irrcKitlnr and does not know what to expect from one day to the next. He is easily .sluimcd. He is constantly scolded. An older brother, you say, survived j very well under the same handling. I It may appear so, but deep in his heart are hurts that will seek compensation some day. He may have lost faith in himself or any number of things. The child is father to (lie man every time, and the adult will be what his early days have made him. The little child, of course, cannot grow up wild. He must be trained as his ability to understand can take it. But he needs careful observation and sympathetic people near him. who will know the value of removing irri- Uiting contacts, the need of keeping him happily busy and using the quiet firmness that is something to tic to rather than to struggle against. : a u By Bruce Catton "Jimmy says lie's Roinrj; to quit his job unless lie gets a five-clay week."

BY MARY RAYMOND Copyright, 1937, NEA Service, Inc. Savecl For History H IGHLY deserving of consideration by the WPA authorities is the plea for a $174401 allotment made by Gov. Bibb Graves of Alabama for the purpose of preserving the state papers of Jefferson Davis and the Southern Confederacy. Montgomery, Ala., was once the capital of the confederacy. Under Governor Graves' plan, the state of Alabama would add some $177,000 to the projected WPA allotment to build an archives building in which the papers could be preserved. At present, many of the Confederacy's papers are kept in Montgomery along with Alabama's documents. From many standpoints, the money asked by Governor Graves would be money well spent. The papers qf Mr. Davis and the Confederacy are of tremendous historical value— value which increases as we get farther away from the tragic conflict. Providing a permanent library for them should be at least partly an obligation of the federal government. The Family Doctor t M. Reg. U. 8. Pat. OS.

CHAPT3R XVII A LAN had left Jill in a mood of despair, swept at times by cold fury and a burning jealousy. It was really all over. His love for Jill had changed to hate and contempt. Tonight, Jill had pretended she still loved him in order to bring him to her announcement had been only another illusion 1 . He groaned. * * * nPHE doorbell shattered his unhappy thoughts. Alan went into the front room and opened the door. A'.B cy draft of air, accompanied by a flurry of snow greeted him. A girl stood there, muffled against the weather. Her turban was spattered by snow. The fur collar of her coat was turned up close about her face. For a moment, his heart stood still. "You're letting me freeze," came a low, throaty voice. "Can't you make w yaur mind to invite me in?" Alan swung the door wide. The light fell on Ardath Holm. It was almost as though she had materialized from his thoughts. He smiled party, It had amused her to have « 1Utle ' f^ 118 ho £ use l ess his decision had been. Here she was. a plodding painter witness her triumph and prestige, A lovely princess surrounded by her court. And more than that, she had wanted to humiliate him fearfully because he had despised her favors. He let himself into his studio with shaking fingers. It was still cozy and warm here, with embers from the fire still glowing. Yet unutterably lonely. He stood for a moment gazing down dully at a half-finished portrait on the easel. How cold and unappealing the iady on the canvas was, despite the lovely line of her throat and the graceful curve of her shoulder. A woman of the imagination. What he needed was reality. He had been a victim of illusions too long. Visualizing Jill as some sort of lovely, laughing saint. And attributing all sorts of devilish impulses to Ardath. There was no doubt that a deep and dangerous fire glowed in Ardath. But she was a saint compared with Jill. He laughed mirthlessly. Some day he would paint Ardath in 'a new light. And then he wuuld do a companion picture of Jill, as a eort of Delilah. He would like to do it now. "Surprised to see me, aren't you?" Alan shut the door, "Yes," he answered. Ardath took off her small, snow- powdered hat and tossed it on a chair. "Please help me with my coat." She moved close to him and Alan slipped the coat from her shoulders. What an amazing creature she was. Coming to a man's apartment at this hour of night, and evidently expecting to remain awhile. "I like this!" Ardath sank into a low chair near the fire. "Say, it really feels grand after that blizzard out there." Stiffness slid from Alan in a swift surge of sympathy. These [iris who battled lor a living had a rough time of it. No doubt of "So you'd rather not talk about her! With me, you mean." Ardath's gray eyes were blazing. Fury had painted bright banners in her cheeks. Her lips had parted to reveal a flash of white teeth. Alan was staring at her strangely. If he could only transform Ardath with a brush. Paint her with a softness and gentleness she had never revealed. And, paradoxically, paint Jill with a cruel deception showing in her smiling eyes. By EDDIE WrXCII HOLLYWOOD.--"That's n laugh!"

To this place comes ;t young American, enamored of the daughter of the household, who has managed to got herself engaged to a caddish young Englishman —who, in turn, being a fortune-hunter, reaiiy want.s to marry the young American's wealthy step-mother. This, as you can see. lays the foundation for a plot complicated as only Wodehousc can complicate it; and from it there emerges a gay, witty and eternally-moving story that is as light as a puff of thistledown and that is pleasantly readable from start to finish. Nut least among Mr. Woduhouse's distinctions, by the wny, is the fact that he is one of the very few English .

Her lips parted in a wide, amused smile. "I don't mind. I'd like a cocktail, if, you have the makings about." * * » N her lap was a sheet of newspaper, closely folded. After a moment, she unfolded it and handed it to him. Alan took the paper. Jill's face smiled at him. "Did you come here just to show me that?" he asked roughly, pain in his voice. "No. I came earlier and the place was dark. Then J went to a show. When I came out the newsboys were crying out something abput her party, and a nouneing her engagement. I got a paper and brought it along." "I'd rather not talk about her, 1 said in a dull tone. here. It's ridiculous quarrel. I've a better idea." Instantly, anger disappeared. Ardath smiled. "Have you? What is it?" "Will you pose for me?" She laughed. "So, that's what you meant. Of course I will How do you want me? Without All or All together?" "All together, if you mean fully dressed," Alan replied coldly. * * * ARDATH followed him into the back room, where he arranged his easel and tubes with profes- ijonal precision. "Funny to see a man painting in evening clothes," Ardath said, suddenly. A malicious note was in jer voice. "Maybe you had planned 0 go to the Wentworths and then hanged your mind. It's not to ate even now. Don't let me in- errupt any plans." Will you please sit in that carved chair, turn slightly toward ne. Now look at me, and don't ,a!k-" Alan's tone was like ice. Ardath sat down, settled back ;racefuliy and turned slightly, her strange eyes slanting to meet Alan's gaze. She wouldn't talk. She would ,ook at him! Quite dispassionately, Alan wound about Ardath's shoulders a splendid scarf of ivory silk, shot through with shining silver threads, which completely covered the cheap green blouse she wore. Ardath resented his cool com* posure, his casual touch. If only he were not so handsome, she could match his indifference with her own. But there was something that pushed her aside; his strange abr sorption, his strained, white face. She could have screamed out angrily: "You touch me as though 1 vvere a figure in a glass case. I'm rwnan." When Ardath's glowing eyes met his, Alan thought: "That's the look! The femme fatale look:. Th£ devastating fire that bwns men, wh,o come too near." }t was going to be difficult to change that sultry glow into 9 saintly gleam.
