Cu() "We called frantically downward into the icy darkness but only the hollow echo of our voices broke the silence In that tremendous snow-covered crevasse. There was no time to lose. It was so deep that i the bottom was out of sight. Prob-'ably the dugs were dead! It was as you If three of our men had suddenly been taken from us. "Tied to one rope and using the one which we had already fixed as a handline I was lowered tnrougn the . hole. At forty feet down I thought 1 .aw something move At fifty feet the rope ended and I was tethered from above while my handline wis pulled up and tlel to the end of the rope attached to my waist. Both sides of the crevasse sloped inward toward the top and I was swinging aimlessly to ana iru like a minnow on a fish line. "I was lowered ten feet more and lost sight of daylight above. A patch of blood on a sharp bit of ice made me ahudder. There below in the dim light lay the dogs, huddled in heap, too scared even to move. At last my toes touched the firm ice near the dogs. The animals were petrified. Not one of them moved hair as I slipped an extra line through the belly-straps of their harnesses. One dog bled slowly from ; one eye as he looked pitifully at me. At least all three were alive. The ' only injuries we could discover j on any of them were Monkey's scratched eyebrow and a missing 'toenail." Leaders Institute 1 1-.: .v. 14 r. -) .t Or i i tfV J 2.

Another Letter From a Bald-Headed Dad to His Red-Headed Daughter MBY ROBERT QUILLEN Y DEAR LOUISE: If you wish to discuss rtllglon with your acquaintances, fh the hope of giving or gaining knowledge, I see no objection to it, but I advise you not to argue. To argue about religion is to reach bottom In the list of useless occupations. Over in France, at a little town called Lourdes, there is a sacred shrine visited by people from every land. Many go there on crutches and come away apparently sound, and a committee of responsible physicians certifies an average of ten supernatural cures every year. Whatever the cause of the cures, they have been the subject of argument for generations; and there is no record that anybody, whether doubter or believer, has ever argued well enough to make another change his mind. A distinguished churchman in this country told the whole story In few words when he said: "For those who believe in God no explanation is necessary. For those who do not believe in God no explanation is possible." Religious faith isn't like a knowledge of facts. You can't acquire it by an effort of will. Like good breeding, you either have it or you don't have it, and there's an end of the matter. That, perhaps, is the reason that scientists despair of understanding It. If an honest and humble scientist, eager to study religious experience, should do his utmost to acquire faith, no research or effort or will could bring him success. You simply can't make yourself believe a thing. No man can say to himself: "I shall now quit doubting and have faith." Our opinions and convictions are beyond our control. You either have faith in God, and a peace and sense of security that nothing can disturb, or you have no faith and can't develop It. Pretending won't help you; no argument can convince you. If you must argue, try your hand at politics and let religion alone. A symphony orchestra delights one person and bores another, according to their natural or acquired capacities, and neither could ex plain his taste or change It by wishing, so let it go at that Love. (Copyright, 193S, Dorothy Dix's Letter Box. Problem of Curing Grumbling, Pessimistic Husband-Fine Plan to Keep Home Fires Burning. DEAR DOROTHY DIX My husband and I are young people who both work, are healthy, have a nice home and should be happy, but the fly in tha ointment is that my husband is the greatest pessimist and grum bler in the world. Every day is a rainy Minaay with him. Nothing in the world is right. Life is so hard. It is too hot or too cold. Everyone is getting ahead in business but him, which isn't true. Ha has the worst luck at bridge. And so on and so on. What shall I do before this wrecks our marriage, as I am afraid it will? ANXIOUS. Answer Of course, you realize that when the eomplalners complain they are having the time of their lives and they wouldn't cheer up at any price. They are never so happy a when they are, Just wallowing In woe and Indulging In an ergy of self-pity. I doubt there la any cure for them, but one woman I know at least made her pessimistic husband do his moaning away from home by Joining her voire with his whenever ho would start on his lamentations and outwailing him. One of her stunts was to got out a pencil and paper and begin making out the list of pallbearers for his funeral whenever he would begin complaining about hia health and prophesying that ha wasn't long for this world. It Is certainly hard lines on a cheerful woman to have to live with a crepe-hanger, but how come you didn't find out about Jeremiah's disposition before you married hlmT DOROTHY DIX. DEAR MISS DIX How can I persuade my husband to permit me to drive our car? I sacrificed and did without things I needed in order to pay for it, but he does not allow me to use it, although I am a good driver. Says he Is afraid Ml wreck it, but what's being wrecked Is me by not being permitted to touch the sacred car. lie works within walking distance of our home, but drives the car every day and parks it outside of where ha works rather than let me have the pleasure of taking my bshy and going some place one afternoon a week. I don't think I am asking too much to use the car now and then, do you? A WIFE. Answer I should say not. The ear belong Just as much to Von a It does to him, and, If you have baby to take around, you need It more than he doe. He Is being ruloasully selfish and should be ashmned of himself. DOROTHY DIX. DEAR DOROTHY DIX-My wife and I have been married fifteen years. She has worked very herd with me In my business and as a housewife. We have a daughter 12 years old and my wife often says that if It wasn't for her she would have left long ago, that we were not meant for each other, aa our ideaa of life are so different. She likes to be well dressed and to go to parties and shows I lo.-e the outdoors, hunting and fishing, Aa we do not agree, we have hit on this plan: We are dividing our savings and I am going to board with her and also pay her a salary, as she Is still going to help with the business. We sre not going to get a divorce, but, while we live under the same roof, we are both going to do as we please and make no claim upon the other. What do you think or tnis plan.' iv a. , Answer Fine, and a great Improvement on divorce If you will live up to It and really give each other the personal liberty you would strangers. Evidently the trouble between you and your wife Is that each wants to make the other do his or her way. You want to make your wife go fishing and she wants to make you go to the movies, hence your quarrel. Once you have made up your mind that she can spend her time in the beauty shops Instead of the great outdoors, and she concedes you the right to spend your money on fancy fishing tackle Instead of parlor curtains, you will be able to get along peaceably together. Anyway, your plan keep a hmme for your daughter and gives her two parents Instead of one, and that's the big Idea In your turning star boarder Instead of becoming ex-husband. DOROTHY DIX. DEAR DOROTHY DIX-How should girls working In public and private offices conduct themselves? How should they dress? What should be their attitude toward their employer and the other men in the office? JUANITA. Answer A girl working In an ofllre should b a happy combination f a lady and a business man, If you got what I mean. I mean that she should I,. Hiimined vet rrarlous: omdent. but not a prude: easy to get along with, jet not fresh and bold In her manner) easy on the eyes, yet not painted and dolled up Ilka she was going to a party. Nobody wants a girl employe around who expects to have as many gallant attentions paid her by the men with whom she works as If she were In a drawing room, or who gets Insulted If her work la criticized, or her employer smokes In her presence. But neither do they want a girl around who is hail-fellow-well-met with every fresh drummer. As to clothes, she should dreaa the part of the business girl and not get herself up as If she was going to an afternoon tea. This doesn't mean that she need be frump. It only means that she should leave off the Jingling Jewelry and the doodads and try to look like competent business woman Instead of a pin headed flapper who had Just blown In on her way to a party. And particularly It means that she should make up her face before she comes to work Instead of spending her time restoring her complexion 16 office hours. Her sttitude toward her employer should be a strictly business one. She should not try to make sex take the place of good work, and It Is no part of her Job to svmpsthlie with him because he I married to a wife who does not understand him. Neither Is It her duty to kiss her employer good-morning and let him paw her. When he starts these tactics It is time for her to look for another Job. She should make the other men In the offlr keep their place, which Is NOT looped over the comer of her dek telling her what perfectly wonderful eyes she has. An office flirtation may get her a date, but It I sure to lose her a Job. Friendship with all, entangling alliance with none Is ae good motto for working girls as It Is for nations. DOROTHY DIX.

III., recently sent out a call for nominations for the Ki'Ifl award for the person contributing most toward advancement of pure bred ink In the. United State. Past awards have been made to James M. Spring of Uoston, counsel for the American Kennel Club, and to George Foley, veteran superintendent. In the opinion of this commentator, no one is more clearly entitled to this asrd than the mistress of Giralda, Farms, Mrs. M. Hartley i Dodge. Mrs Dodge has established her , rank as the nation's No. 1 dog fan-I tier In many ways. She hns been ! active as a breeder, has brought the I finest blood obtainable to this country, and has contributed Inestimably j to the advancement of a half do.en 'breeds In which she hss been Inter-jested. She hss been unflagging in ! her support of shows throughout the entire United Htales, With success snd prestige which might have turned the bead of many, she ha remained friendly, democratic, gracious and unassuming. In the face of jealousy snd reverses which might bsve made another bitter, she has kept her head cool, her spirit high and has carried on to set a fine example of sports-rnannhlp and to advance the Interests of American dogdom. She has built a monument In a dog show which stands as an example to the world how such an event should be conducted. She hss pioneered In making the convenience of exhibitors, the excellence of judging and the comfort of the dogs paamount above all other considerations. She has spared nothing jln efforts to make a show that i the greatest and nest manage" in the world, and she ha succeeded as any one who has attended the Morris and Essex show may testify.

Tl RECTORS and officers of the Central Indiana Fox Chasers' Association have set tho dHte for tho association meet as Sept. 2, 3 and 4, at Hornady pnrk, one mllo west of Petersburg.

And yet these headaches are merited, say tho dog fsnciers. Some of the errore made In tho filming of certain pictures grate very much on tha nerve of dog-minded moviegoers. For Instance, there was "Captain Rlood," which date back to tho seventeenth century. A Pekingese appeared In this picture, despite the fact that this breed of dog wss unknown, except In China, until the latter ?art of the nineteenth century. An even greater lapse In periods occurred in Lorna Doone, the scenes of which were laid in England about 1(1.11. The breed of dog used In thla filming wna the Afghan hound, one of the oldest varieties known but also one that wss not Imported to EnRland until Iftoft. Considerable, discussion was stirred up when the monster screen production of "Ren Hur" was made, and it included a wire foxterrler. Back In tho biblical dsys which the picture pnrtrsys, there was no such breed aa the wire foxterrler. And then, of course, there was the famous "boner" In "Call of the Wild," wherein a Great Dane, a smooth coated dog wss used aa a sled dog In Alaska, where ha would have frozen. Even that eminently correct classic of the screen. "The Barrets of Wimpole Street," was not quite true in Its canine side. The bread wss correctly a corker spaniel, but, the corker spsnlol of modern times in America Is a quite different looking animal from the cocker known In England In Elizabeth Barrett Browning's time, nearly a century ago. Even the English cocker spaniel of today has rhanged, Producers attempting to film histories of dog run Into many dlfll-culties because breed change In appearance. Pedigreed Pictures, Inc., which specialize In canine picture, when making films of the collie, the poodle, and the Chesnpeake bay retriever, had to leave out numerous scene because It could not get modern soeclmens that looked like the dogs of the past. TF AMERICA Is the greatest nation of dog owners and breeders today, ss the figures Indicate, tha responsibility goes all the way back to George Washington. He set th fashion. Resesrch In the new library of the American Kennel Club, governing body of pure-bred dogs In the 1 nltcd state, reveal that our first President wss not only a great lover of dogs, but he may bo termed, accurately, the "father of the American foxhound." Washington ws an enthusiastic foxhunlnr, and he maintained several packs of hound. One day he was discussing the relative merits of various hound with the Marquis de Lafayette, when the young Frenchman began to praise lavishly a certain breed of French hound. Gen. Ijsfayelle promised (tint upon his re- i turn to France he would send enne j of the dogs out to America. It was soirm time before the promise could be fuHllled, but In 1785 these doir-4 ' stiirtod their Journey across the At-j Iintlc. They were placed In tho euro j of a young msn who was Inter to bo-, come s president of tho United States, John yuincy Adams. Keen Judge of Dog. The Frenc h hound were used and appreciated by Washington, for he waa a keen Judge of what a dog should be able to accomplish, and he Insisted that they earn their "bed and board." Later these dog were j crossed with the English foxhounds, j also owned by Washington, and their j descendents are now known a American foxhounds. All the early presidents of the ; United States stand out as owners .' of the various gun dog breeds. Thomas Jefferson' interest in hounds i snd horses was almost as greet as that of Washington. Grover Cleveland also had a great liking for gun dogs, and from time to time owned setters, pointers end beagles. A score of Presidents who lived In I the White House have kept .their i at the executive mansion, but In ; modern time there nas Been some- j thing of a change tn breeds. Wood- i row Wilson snd Warren G. Harding I were lovers of the Airedale terrier i and Calvin Coolldge also owned a ' specimen of this breed, a collie and a chow. Herbert Hoover had a Nor- i DOCS, CATS, BIRDS Are Advertised in Today's Classified Section Classification No. 70 weglan elk hound. English and Irish setters, a Scottie and a German shepherd have made their home with the Roosevelt family. The new library of the Kennel Club now numbers 1,114 books on almost every topic concerning the dog. Included among the 1,114 volumes are 276 books on the history of the various Individual breeds, 127 on general sports topics, forty-four general histories on dogs, thirty on breeding and care, fifteen on medicine and disease, forty-six on training and usefulness, fifty on dogs in literature, and five on psychology and philosophy as applied to dogs. There ara seventy-five bound volumes of dog magaiines from America and England. There are 446 stud book volumes, comprising those of America, Belgium, Canada, Denmark. England, France, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. Besides books. the library has available current files of fifty-live n.agaxlnes. Among the foreign magazines which augment the many United States publications are those of Australia, Auatrla, Belgium, Canada, England, Finland, Franca, Germany, the Netherlands Tre'and, Italy, Japan, Norway and Switzerland. Dog fanciers and writer upon dogs continually use the A. K. C. library, In the offices at 221 Fourth avenue, New York, and it answers, by mall, countless queries sent from ail parts of the United States. 1 (' piF AMERICA'S ten rarest breeds, only four have been recognized during the last decade, according to a survey released by tha American Kennel Club, governing body of pure-bred dogs in th United States. This Is concrete evidence that the fashion in dogs ar constantly changing and that the public Is quick to take up the novel. The Mexican hairless and the Welsh springer spaniel are almost as scarce as th dodo, -for hot a single specimen of either of these breed has been registered by th A. K. C. within th last ten years. Th field snanlcl Just misses that class, with a lone registration during th same period. The flat-coated retriever is th fourth rarest, with only two registrations. Then com the Alaskan mala-mute and tha Bouvler de Flandres, both newcomers, with three apiece; the Sussex spanlet, with four; th Lakeland terrier, another new on, with five; th curly coated retriever, with nine, and the Lhasaa terrier, the fourth new breed, with fourteen registrations. Indes of Popularity. The registered specimens ar a safe Index to the populsr ty o.' sny breed, but these figures do not mean there ar no mor do. of these breeds In th country. Often the loss of pedigree makei it Impossible, In certain breid. to register dog that are of show quality. In fact, there are show champions whose pedigrees sr so uncertain that they have never been registered. The bull-msstlff. a re ently rsrog-nized breed, starts off the second ten rarest breeds with fifteen registrations. It Is followed by the harrier, with eighteen; the Brittany spaniel, a new on, with nineteen; the Kuvsz, another newcomer, with twenty-one; the ot erhound. with twenty-four; the Creat Pyre-nee, also new, with forty-seven; th Italian greyhound, with fifty-four; the Afghan hound, with slx'y-flv; th Brlard, with eighty-one, end th Keeshond, a new one, with 103. fPHE dog's intelligence never hon- estly can be compared with that of man until the dog receive training and schooling proportionate to man, according to tho American Kennel Gazette, official magazine of the American Kennel Club. The majority of dogs offered for laboratory tests of brain power are similar to humans who never have received even the benefits of a mother's training. Certainly they are In no manner to b rated with men and women who have gone to elementary school and possibly received higher education. The training of the average dog often begins and ends with his house-breaking. Even so, It is amazing the number of things he finds out for himself.
