T*HE Mediterranean world has got over the bad attack of 1 jitters which afflicted it a few months ago. Not long since, the air around that historic sea was charged with tension and nervous expectancy. War was in the wind., and a, breakdown a£ international law. and strong- arm tactics of high and low degree. Everyone looked ahead to the worst. Now, says Anne O'hare McCormick in a dispatch to the New York Times, the tension is eased. The war scare has been raised so often that people are no longer scared by it. The state of tension has come to seem normal. People have stopped worrying, But this is not good news. On the contrary, as Mrs. Mc- Cornaick points put. it is just about the worst news possible. For it'rrieam that people are getting hardened to cruelty, lawlessness and fear. They are taking for granted a world in which all of the old securities have ceased to exist. * * * I T IS worth while to ponder over this fact for a moment, for it is perhaps the most dismaying fact on the horizon today. . . Consider the state of affairs on the Mediterranean. Warships are patroling the sea lanes on a' war-time basis. Hidden submarines lurk in sheltered coves, to dart out every so often and sink unoffending merchant, ships. Bombing planes cruise in the skies, dropping down ever and again to blast some peaceful carrier of goods. Every naval base on that sea, every fleet and squadron and flotilla, is kept constantly ready for action.. Onshore things are better. At least three great nations, technically at peace with the world, are up to their necks in a war that is tearing Spain to bits. Rumors of revolt, of international plots and of mutiny are rife all along the African coast. In Palestine an ungly three-sided fight is taking its toll in murders, guerilla encounters, and bombings. And in no Mediterranean land' have the common people the slightest assurance that "they may not be called to arms day after tomorrow.' ' ' '• '•' Yet it is this situation, as violent and unsettled as something out of the middle ages, which people are getting used to. * * * N OW the point is this : in an orderly, civilized world, such a state of affairs does not exist. Order, and civilization go hand in ijand;, international anarchy such as is evident in the Mediterranean today can appear onjy when the structure of society is in a state of collapse. , ' Yet, as MpsT'MeCorenick remarks, people have grown used to this anarchy. It seeing, to be the normal condition for the world of 1937. And a 'world which accepts such a condition as normal is obviously'a world that lies on the crumbling edge of the abyss. '.., .. Labor Getting Wise H OPE that the C. I. O..and A. F. of L. negotiators-will eventually reach a compromise which will end the disastrous split in labor's ranks seems to be growing brighter. And that is-good news for all the country. Apparently the conferees have the good sense to see that there must be a compromise of some sort, with each side retreating substantially from its original position. The warfare which had been going on through most of this year was becoming ruinous to both sides; continued long enough, it probably would have robbed labor of most if not all of the great gains it has made in the last few years. There should be ample room in this country for both the craft and industrial unions. There should be enough good sense among the leaders of the two groups to see that some industries are fitted for the one type of union and other industries are fitted for the other type. It is encouraging to see that ;»n honest attempt at compromise is at last being made. By OK.

(No. 37T) ! Because we are creatures of custom. * far more attention is given to the presence or absence of the hair, its * color, its straightness or curliness, it.s excess, or jts,qther equalities than it 'merits from, phy point of view except .that of vanity, * ft is' dpubtful that the hair itself has ' any effect whatever on health. , Hair on the human bcdy gives support to the belief that man once was ;covered, with hair" like other animals and thai the change in his habits and •exposure of his body to the sunlight resulted in the general loss of most of 'his hair. ' It we study the various races of man we discover some with hair that is naturally curly zmd others with hair that is .usually straight. A hair that, 'curls is usually flat in appearance j .when seen under a microscope.! Straight hair is usually cylindrical. < 1 Wherryou look at a hair under the j microscope: you. find that it has three ', layers, a central, an inner and an out- i er layer. : Today much more attention i.s being given to the care of the hair than was customary a quarter of a century ago.; 'Before 1915, bobbed hair for women; was a rarity. Since bobbed hair has T co»e in, the upkeep on the hair in a family with a mother and two grown daughters would pay the- family meci-, ical bill for a year and leave plenty over. Ordinary care of the hair is not a difficult matter. The hair should be washed often enough to keep it clean. For short hair, washing should occur at least once in two weeks iincl for long hair once in three weeks. There is no evidence th;jt the use of eggs in shampoos is of any more use* than throwing an egg into an electric fan. Any good toilet .soap that will lather freely is useful for the hair. Most important is a thorough rinsing and drying of the hair after washing. Experts are inclined to suggest the importance of slow drying rather than drying with an electric blower of heat. ! If the hair is too dry. a small amount | cf oil may be rubbed into it after dry! ing. Drynets of tho hair is due to j lack of the oil .%ecreted by the glands ! of the scalp. j When the bod;, in general is in ill • health, the hair i.- hkcly to b<: ill also, j Falling of the hair after any serious j illness is exceedingly common. When ! the body begins to improve and its i hygiene to reach an optimum state, the i-air alio will return to normal. Condition of the blood is closely related to the hair for tht- blood supplies nourishment to the scalp exactly as it does to the rest of the body. Therefore, a good supply of high quality blood is important for the well-being of the hair. Out of this simple fact have come a' hajf dozen or more treatments for fulling hair which, however, have failed to restore hair.

Bcdy control over lialr In all children over nine, there comes a hunger for factual knowledge. Although the slogan for Children's Book WeeK this year is "Reading, the Magic Highway to Adventure," it does not follow that adventure books must consist of fictional escapes, cowboy prowess, or the villain in the piece. All children read adventure into stories that interest them, whether it be biography, science or travel. Therefore.

CHAPTER IV 7ACHAHY "HADES" JONES came to life first. While the other three in his party still stared, he barked. "A squaw! Looky thar, it's a itquaw!" The whole party laughed then, and Bob was quick to apologize, "Oh, I'm sorry, uh—Honey— what'd you say your <name is? Honey Bee? We were not laughing at you, but at ourselves. You see, we expected a male cook, a man." "I cook thee white man's food," she repeated. "I cook it better than thee white man's woman." "Sure, sure, come on tonight anyway, Honey Bee, and cook supper and breakfast for us. We'll still be skirting the Indian country, and you can ride home tomorrow and send us a man. I'll pay you. It's all right." The supper that night turned out to be perfect. With scant utensils, an outdoor fire, and a limited stock of supplies, Honey Bee quickly fed them generously and well. She even found time to disappear up a canyon evidently watered by an under-surface stream, and there pick a quantity ot the odd plant called miner's lettuce, an unexpectedly delicious salad which she dressed witji the rich brown juice of fried ..ham. It touched the men's appetites greatly. Nothin* but a Indian coulda done that," approved Holliman, picking his teeth, but Hades Jones snorted. * * * 'TWAT first night was unevent- -*• ful. 'Lissa slept soundly, despite her saddle soreness, and the party WLIS moving again at dawn. Cactus and brush forced them to ride single file most of this day, so that, relatively, conversation was impossible, but interest heightened when they finally made camp within sight of their goal. They were near tlie foot of the great Castle cliff. It loomed Impressively in the sunset glow. After supper, Bob studied the . — "Well, that sure is funny, Doeloi\ so did -my lumbago!"

"It's about 600 feet, straight up," he told Mary Melissa. "No, not quite straight up, but nearly so. And you'll note the cliff cap above has a slight overhang. Centuries of erosion have cut back the softer under strata, where the Castle stands." 'Why 3s it colled Defiance, Dr. Barry?" 'Because it has defied all efforts to explore it, and probably was impregnable as a fort when occupied. One archaeologist, from the State University, did manage to climb part way up, chiseling toe holda and using ropes. But even he slipped on the down trip; and broke his leg. And until now nobody has appropriated money for a real effort at it." Mary Melissa stared intently upward. Fast dying shadows of day seemed to create life in the old ruin. "Looks ghostly," she ventured, "It is. There's a wealth of legend about the place, Miss Lane Many good yarns; some tact, maybe. These dwellings wore abandoned before Columbus sailed. We don't know why." "Goodness!" breathed the white girl. ''It's fascinating." "Yes!" "Maybe the Indians drove them away. But where?" "Can't say. There are Indian legends about it too, but they don't help much." dawn found Bob Barry impatient to visit Defiance Castle. During the night he had evolved a new plan, It excited him so that he arose before anybody else, shook Holliman awake and with him left camp before anyone else stirred. Some cold food did them for breakfast. "I have a hunch I can make a preliminary exploration this morning, Holliman," the young scientist beamed. "Let's tuke a long rope—say 300 feet of the one-inch stuff—and ride around to the top of this cliff." Holliman looked at his boss. "What you gonna do?" he demanded. Never mind now. Maybe nothing. Let's see if we can get to the top of that cliff." They could, by riding two miles south and cutting back and up on a zigzag, rocky course, then climbing through more rocte to the mesa top, They were three hours at it. j "Ought to be easy," Bob began. "Here, let's anchor one end of the rope firmly. Then you snub the middle length around this mesquite tree trunk, Holliman, and I'll be on the other end." "You mean—you goin' to swing over? You aim to take us all down there that way?" "Maybe. It might be the simplest way." Bob Barry started down, but he had overlooked two things. First, the wind at the cliff edge ,vas very strong, forestalling all efforts to shout instructions up to Holliman once the descent over the ledge was begun. He was dangling down nearly ISO feet when ho discovered that he was on a level with the castle floor. He shouted to Holliman, but got no answer, and Holliman let him go down some 30 feet too fur. Then he realized the importance of the second item he had forgotten—the nli/l ! overhang. His strong arms, developed in years of swimming, enabled him to climb bcick up to the level of the castle floor. But because of the overhung above him, he was stiM 20 feet or more from tlie rock lip. He knotted the rope at that point and .studied the situation. "Hey, Holliman!" he yelled, but the wind swallowed his voice. "Gee, it's a long drop under me!" he murmured. It was indeed. About 400 feet to some tree tops, then more trees in assorted levels for 200 feet or so more. He could see Miss Lane and Honey Bee staling up ut him. He gvinned and waved, showing more confi» dence than ho full. He noted in a flash that the ancient castle wulls, made of crude masonry, were remarkably well preserved. He was close enough to study their exterior. He thought he could see blackened rocks, where nres had burned centuries ago. But scientific interest was fleet-r ing. He- h;id twisted the rope around his loft leg to hold himself there, and the stricture was hurting. Ho looked up. Could a man climb 150 feet of rope? He didn't know. He was swaying in the wind. 3n a narrow ledge down to the eft he recognized an eagle's nest. He suddenly envied the eagles. A moment of hysteria chilled him, 3Ut he literally forced himself to ,hink calmly again. Robert Barry lad a trained mind. He could see but two possibili* ies. Each offered a' very slim chance, he realized, but lj.e must decide quickly to risk one of them.
