The indictment is familiar to all of us. Work that used to b.v: humau hands is done nowadays by machines. The jhamfaare idle, and the man who is attached to them is on Srpbodjf's' payroll. Consequently he is not in the market for tne goods the machines produce; consumption fails to keep up )with demand, and every so often we get into the direst sort """*""* But simply to restate the old indictment gets us nowhere QMJVIa.iV Machine has been in court periodically for about, a tlecade now, and no one has any very clear idea about what, jif- any thing, should he done. The one certainty is that he is <!here to stay and that we might just as well make the best of shim. * * * I \ NT) since that is true, it is worth while to have a look at the '/a. other side of the picture. That may help us to understand that our salvation lies in exploiting the machine to the •very utmost rather than in siny fruitless attempt to turn the clock back. A little booklet which shows the machine's rating on the 'credit side of the ledger has just been produced by the Na- .tional Machine Tool Builders' Association. The booklet invites you to go right down the line in your own home and see how the machine has made life easier and leas expensive for you. The kitchen, for instance; it is in- 'fimtely handier than it was in grandmother's day, and it is thescene.of far less drudgery. Why? Because of machinery. * About a dozen years ago the nation was producing some •200,090 electric refrigerators a year. They sold at about $400 apiece. Today, with production stepped up to 2,000.000 a year, the-avevage price is SI 63: — and you get a better refrigerator. •Go down in. the basement and look at the washing machine. In ,1921 the average washer cost $142 ; today's machine, whrcH'ts much better, costs around $65. Or go out in the ga- iaj|igajnd inspec^ the, family auto — and, as you do, reflect that 3i9«jrears»ago>the auto was a toy for the wealthy, whereas to- d^y'tne avel-age'auto'-owning family has an income of about §30 1& week. Ip that same period .-of time, incidentally, the i^fa^re fc wage in" the auto industry has risen from 25" to 80 f ~~ts an^hptir, a-nd the -number of auto workers has jumped in 8Q,.0$fp;to 400;QOO. . «•» • " *• .- * -K * XTQW these are not exceptional cases.

By this I meaen that to buy a book for a boy or girl ofthis age is to buy one for yourself. Content is so entertaining that they should be labeled "twelve to .seventy." The only reason we specify an age is because they have a special appeal to the tastes of the growing youth. Some are mines of knowledge, others fiction typifying the best in human relations and endeavor. But see for yourself.

There are many factors in the human body which control vhe growth of the hair These factors are manifest- < ed chiefly through the glands of internal secretion. For insiance. there is .1 substance in the pituitary gland v,h:ch is believed to be definitely related t.. body growth and ethers supposed to indefinitely concerned with the growth of the hair. Eunuchs who have had the male sex glands removed fioin the body do m»i become bald, and there is known also to be u definite relationship between the functioning of these glands and the activities of the pituitary gland.

CHAPTER V 'TO the three people below, Robert Barry looked like a toy doll, a puppet, dangling on the end of the rope stretching 600 feet or more above them. • "What in tarnation's he tryin' to do?" shrieked Hades Jones. Hades was jumping around and chattering more excitedly than either of the two girls. Mary Melissa looked enthralled. "Oh, I don't know! It's awful, Mr, Jones. Can't you make him stop? Is it necessary to risk his life this way?" Bob was going through some sort of riueer contortions now. He appeared to have looped the roue around his foot, and to be starting a motion of "pumping" as ^ hoy would do in a swing. But he gathered momentum slowly. He ticemed first to swing the wrong way—parallel to the clJJT dwelling ledge, rather than toward it—and he had to slow down, then start anew. He stopped and heaved, struggling for the pendulum motion again. The arc of his swing grew slowly—in-an-out, in-and-out—to and from ihe red rock. The cliff was so jagged and rough that it appalled Mary Melissa to think of what might happen. In her semi- liysteriu she envisioned her business partner slipping, striking the rock and sliding down its steep Klope. The great cliff in which Defiance Castle nestled was really a concave surface, overhanging at the top and curving quickly inward to the "mouth" or cave which had been chosen as a homeslte by the ancient bui'.ders, Below this niche, which was big enough to hold a three-story building, the granite- like wall curved gently outward jigain, progressing in drops of 20 to 30 feet, broken by vicious-look' ing points und knobs. Occasional scrubby gnarled plants dung pra- | curiously to the wall, although i where they found soil for suste- i nance was a mystery. ; On the day when they first saw i the clifT, Mary Melissa had commented that it w*s a toe, theatri- cal backdrop for a great drama. The ancients had farmed the flat valley, where this modem exploration party had set up camp. The ancients must have known work and danger and love and excitement and happiness and death there centuries ago. The liie drama of a kingdom! The white girl thought of this in a flash again, and instantly realized that she was seeing another dramatic moment here. Only —this one was not in retrospect, not for calm historical study. It was tremendously near and real. She strained to see Bob Barry. The arc of his swing was incredibly large now. And he was still "pumping." Suddenly she knew his plan. She realized what he hoped to do. "No! Oh no!" She breathed it, almost as a prayer. The distance seemed much too great. In that instant, Mary Melissa knew that it mattered terribly. * * * j!HE knew that it mattered to ' her, personally, and irrevocably. She didn't phrase il, even to herself, as love. But she knew. The tightening within her, the actual physical pain in her heart, was keener than it would have been if she saw a casual acquaintance in danger, In the latter circumstance, she would have screamed. She might have run, and shouted advice, anything in her high alarm. But— this feeling was different. Deeper, somehow. In the strain of the moment she touched something divine—and prayed to it, mumbled her petitions without restraint or shame. More given to physical action in such emergencies, old Hades Jones had abruptly disappeared, running. Frankly, he had no idea curved precariously for six or eight feet before the edge was reached, and he- dared not try to peer over at Bob. He had just let the rope out slowly as instructed, then held it, snubbed, when it was almost gone. * * * TT occurred to him that he hadn't been told when to pull his boss back up. He wasn't sure he could pull him back anyway. The cliff edgy was of sharp jugged rock. It would cut into the ropu, maybe sever it. This thought suddenly startled Holliman. He made sure tl.rt his end of the rope was tied, then went as close to the edge as he- dared. "Mr. Barry'.'" ho called. No answer. Holliman yelled it, but still got no reply. Then he, too, realized that the wind was whipping the sound away. Sudden alarm struck him. He couldn't soe Barry, nor communicate with him. He did peer over far enough to see Hades Jones running.

HOLLYWOOD.—Phil Rogan probably would have been perfectly happy if he had gone right on being a policeman. Even now, with his movie and radio prominence, he figures he will have to manage carefully if his future is to provide any more contentment or .-•fcurity than most policemen have. "You think that sounds screwy," challenged the singing actor. "Listen; If 1 hud stayed on the New York force and never even got above n second-grade detective, which I was, I could have retired in 1951, at the age of 45. with a pension of $30 a week. I'd have owned my home and I'd have been healthier than any movie actor of 45 that you can name. "Thirty bucks doesn't sound like much, iu Hollywood. But it takes an investment of about ?30,000 to earn even a little income like that. You wouldn't believe how few big people in this town have socked away that much cash. "We're saving our dough, though. We're not going Hollywood. We're going to huve an income of $100 a week! Hey. Jo?" He looked at Mrs. Regan, who is as Irish and pretty as a sham- the two women were moving about and pointing up. But he was unable to deduce anything from that. He noticed motion in the rope, and quickly grabbed it. There were slight regular jerks for a bit. Then a swaying pull, firs.t right then left. In alarm he looked at the rocky edge where the rope disappeared. The fiber was indeed beginning to fray! Holliman strained to pull it up to a fresh spot, lest it be sawed apart. But Barry was a heavy man, and friction at the rock was too great. "Good Lord!" Holliman growled, genuinely alarmed now. He looked desperately around him. The man felt peculiarly helpless. He did quickly decide to let what he would accomplish, but he; out a few inches more of rope— hastened toward the trees at the > there wasn't very much left—and foot of the great cliff. At least he would, be on hand when Bob Barry fell. Honey Bee Girl, being of a less demonstrative race any%vay had so put a fresh place on the sharp rock edge. That lessened one danger, he felt. He shouted again and again, but no answer. The alternate tighten- uttered no words. She just waited. j n g of the rope indicated a swing- But what of Scott Holliman—' jng or swaying.

Holliman fell back prone with the sudden give of it. He held it then, limp in his hands, and stared at it. "Uhnnnnhi" he literally groaned in-4espaJr, pulling the loose rope up a few feet.
