' : " Evils End as People Want Them to End T HE greatest cure for pessimism in this country is the fact that no'part 'of the American scenery ever sr-em? to stay put. Oth* social life t'lmvb into .some pretty distressing forma every now and then, but it always remains fluid. Bad as things may get, they never get beyond the reach of change. It is interesting- to find a striking example of this by looking 1 back a few years at conditions in New York City. That peculiarly American form of highly organized, com. mereialized and protected lawlessness which goes by the name s of "racket" was enjoying the high noon of it.s heyday, then. ; Every big city had its rackets, but in New York they had I been elevated to the stature of big business. Nobody had ever seen anything like it. * * * B AD as they were, the prohibition rackets were only part of . . the picture. Once-respectable labor unions had come under th*Control of gangsters. Almost every carrying and servicing trade imaginable was paying its regular tribute to the muscle men. There was protection for all of the big shots; the prosecuting: machinery would not function, the alliance between politics and crime was air-tight, the police department was effectively shackled, and people were beginning to accept racketeering as an unavoidable evil, like traffic congestion. And the point is, not so much that things were very bad, but that there was not the slightest reason to hope that they .would ever be bettered. It was possible to prove, by inexorable logic, that corrupt political rings would always rule the itietropolis, that such rings would always maintain an alliance with the underworld, and that the people would go on and on paying toll through all the future. But somehow it didn't work out that way. Somehow, in spite of logic, the people of New York elected a .reform mayor. Somehow an incorruptible special prose- Riltpr was assigned to clean up the mess. Somehow he found witnesses who would talk, investigators who could not be : bribed, juries that would convict and judges who would sentence. The racketeers;began to go to jail. , -"•' ;•'"..' . •' • • * * * T HjEJN other-things that logically couldn't happen did happen. The reform' mayor got himself re-elected. The crooked political ring was utterly routed. TJie special prosecutor got hlrhself--elected regular prosecutor:''The'unions that had been.victimized by the racketeers woke'up and supported the men who were sending their crooked officials to jail. ;: ':"And so.'today, the picture in New York has changed; furthermore, it has changed in -precisely the way that looked utterly impossible half a dozenyiai's Ago. We have discovered that gangsterism is not an unavoidable part of big city life, after,all,,and !B'at...no evil js permanent if the people decide they don't want it to be permanent. .;;,; Change.is the law of life,, {n America. Remember it: it may save you many hours of pessimism. / An "If" in Shanghai THE profound effect which Japanese victory in China might I- have-on the complicated network of European imperialism ift the orient is indicated by announcement that the Japanese may'take over the international settlement at Shanghai. This warning comes from Lieut-Gen. Iwane Matsui, commander of the Japanese forces on the Shanghai front. So far, it is only a warning; what gives it point is the perfectly obvious fact that if the Japanese do decide to take over the international city, the white powers have no way of stopping them. \. Such adevelopment would completely change the picture of European exploitation of China. The great British investments in China, the vast structure of British trade with China -f-both are keyed largely to British sovereignty at Shanghai. Make Shanghai a completely Japanese-ruled city, and the effect on British investments arid British trade, as on the in- v«3stments and trade of other European powers, would be profound.

Just now, having little dignity and an overgrown suspicion of relatives in collar are covered with white, shiny scales, anybody can diagnose dandruff. Dandruff is a scurf from the scalp representing scaling of the skin. All sorts of suggestions have been made as to the causes of dandruff. Ordinarily it is associated with an oversecretion of the glands supplying fat to the hair. It has been suggested that it may be associated with infection by some sort of germ but this has not been definitely established. Dandruff is uncommon among children but rather frequent among older people. It was not seen often among women when they wore their hair long, but nowadays when the scalp is being constantly manipulated and treated, it is more in evidence. There seems to be evidence that the applica- tion of irritants in the form of some hair tonics may increase the amount of dandruff rather than decrease it. It is, of course, quite possible for scaling, once it develops, to become subjected to a secondary infection and for this secondary infection to be transplanted to the skin of the chest and back. When the scalp is neglected, as is frequently clone by old people or lazy people, or by young women who fear to dislodge a permanent wave; when the tcalp is insufficiently washed and cleaned and insufficiently brushed and combed, dandruff is likely to in- keeping the scalp suitably cleansed and using enough.oil to keep the oiliness of the hair at the right level. It is not advisable to use any kind of hair tonic containing alcohol, stimulants or irritants to the skin without a definite understanding of what i.s wrong. There arc certain scaly conditions of the scalp that are like ordinary dandruff but which represent much more serious disturbances. In general, dandruff is not responsible for falling hair but may be associated with falling of the hair. It is serious to mistake ringworm of tho scalp, or crease. j psoriasis for ordinary dandruff.

CHAPTER VIII TT was Wednesday morning when exciterrtent reached its highest in the archaeologist's camp. Bob had '.he party up in the gray of dawn, "Lut's eat and get going!" he urged. ''We can get into the castle before 9 o'clock, I think, Shouldn't be hard to place the last two k».l- ders." It \ias hard, and it was rather dangerous, but the job was clone. Holliman, who had meant to begin, some of his lovernaking, as contracted, didn't ftncl any sort of chance for it, so hard did Bob drive them. It was past nine When the ladders were all safe. Bob himself might have climbed 40 feet then and gone back into the castle, but instead he came back down. "You are going next, Miss Lane," he smiled at Mary Melissa. ''This js really your party, you know." Quite by chance he looked, then at Honey Bee Girl. The Indian was staring longingly upward. Bob, kincl of heart anyway, was instantly touched. "Say, Honey Bee, would you like to go up? With the first party, I mean? Corne on, if you want to. You follow Miss Lane, then we'll bring up the rear." He had no idea what feelings his bland invitation createcj in each gin's heart. Mary Melissa could have slapped him almost, she told herself. But even so, she recognized his motive, and admired him for it. Honey Bee nodded, cold, impassive. This first climb up took more than 20 minutes. Nobody spoke. gob stood at the bottom of each ladder, steadying it until the girls reached the next ledge and the next ladder above. When they had gone single file over the rim, and stood by the castle door facing the bright morning sun, Bob made quite an occasion of it. "Mary Melissa Lane," he proclaimed, "you are trie firft white ably the second human being — to visit here in at least 1000 years!" * * * npHE thought of it thrilled 'Lissa. •*• Sha felt a queer tightening in her throat. She said nothing. She smiled at Bob, and together they stared across the 200 miles of haze and blue and purple and red spread before them — a gigantic pallette, of pastel paints daubed there by Nature, and oddly alive by the morning motion of the sun. Mary Melissa gave thought to the contrast this view meant in her life. In New York City her home was a de luxe Apartment 40 stories up from 57th street. Now she was on a similar height — looking, incidentally, from the porch of yet another apartment. The grandeur, somehow, was much the same. woman ever to set in, this fortress. Moreover, ypg, are the ''It's — magnificent, Dr. Barry!" she murmured it, barely audible. The silence, not ihe roar of traffic, was di/minant here. Skyscrapers were ifiot 40 stories, nor 80; they were rocky peaks a hundred "stories," or a thousand. A few birds could be seen. Grazing in their new corral 600 feet down were the expedition's mules ;md horses — but in all the expanse before them was not another "isible living thing. * * * T>OB sensed her mood, and the -*~^ spell of the place gripped him too, caused him momentarily to forget his science, the past that stood in masonry behind them. He gazed at the eastern horizon. Then something — he never knew what — caused him slowly to turn and look at Mary Melissa Lane. He saw her profile there — really saw the girl for the first time. She had been a person before, a very definite person, who could and did issue a $5000 check that was good, and who fitted surprisingly well into the personnel of a mountain expec,*.tion. But now — By George, her eyelashes are amazingly long! And her nose, and chin — nothing pert th,er», nothing flippant. A solidity, rather; yet delicate, too. Molded so finely. With no fault. His scientist's eye was analyzing her, not at the direction of his mind, but from some deeper force. Unconsciously she parted her lips a trifle, and he s^w pt-rft'ct teeth. A moment later she turned. to him, perceived his intense scrutiny, and turned away smiling, It broke his trance, but Dr. Robert Wilson JJarry, archaeokH i gist, realized for the ftrst time in. his adult life that the present can be altogether as fascinating as the first woman of any sort—^nd profcw j?89t. In him, 9 mature younfi enlist, his heart was inexplicably pounding! "Don't seem to be anybody else here," Hades Jones culled, ile had been peering in various doors.

However, if the scalp becomes exceedingly irritated and inflamed as a result of k'O much scratching or too much disturbance in an attempt to control dandruff, falling of the hair may occur secondarily. In the treatment, it i srmuocyats In the treatment, it is customary to encourage circulation of the blood in the scalp, to use ointments which specialists in diseases of tho skin prescribe and which must be altered according to the amount of oil naturally in tho skin of the person concerned.

Bob repented that tho place probably had b( ..i abandoned sometime in the Dark Ages, as Europe reckoned time. "But why?" asked 'Lissa. "Where did they go, i wonder." "That's exactly why we iu-e here?" Bob reminded. "If we can .find the answer to lhat, it will be worth—everything." "Could they have cu ; ; entrance steps in the stone, that .lave since been eroded away?" "Hardly. Rainfall is scant in this country. Wind erosion would require maybe a million years for thai:. No, remains of any .stairs they cut would still be visible." They explored inside. The mummy was valuable, Bob said. No doubt they would find more human remains, after slight digging. They found many odds and ends of artifacts, the things and tools of life many c-enlurit-a 1 before, remarkably well preserved by the high, dry atmosphere of what is now called Arizona. Then Bob picked up a stone hammer. Jt was tied to a stick handle, as usual with native weapons. And —most significant—Ihe rawhide thong that tied it was still in good condition, still tight and strong. He stared at it intently. "Something important?" asked Mary Melissa. "Very. This skin, on this hummer. Say, somebody was here much lens than 1000 years ago. Nearer 100 years, I'd estimate, or this rawhide would ha»e decayed. But the crumbled walls, and everything else in sight, kok like Elmer Rice has come a long way since his Pulitzer prizewinning play, "Street Scene." He chose for it, one street and one house on that street in New York. And now in his first novel, "Imperial City" (Coward McCann, $3.00) he sweeps across the broadest canvas of nil, the whole of America's biggest city. The result is a most astounding book, .searching, dramatic, kaleidoscopic. Fn- l<i it.s hulk have gone the crime, the graft, the society, big business, labor, i love, religion of all New York, curiously intermingled. Mr. Rice introduces you first to the member of that incomparable family, the Colemans, of the great investment House of Cole- tiums, and before you've mover very far you're tasting the dirt, the bad manners, the nerveless fascination of all New York. Mr. Rice strikes innuemarble graphic portraits—the pri/e fighter who turned cultural and crashed the social register; Jacob LefkowiU, the delicatessen proprietor; Perry Kane, the fourth- rate actor who maneuvered his way to millions. One feels that Mr. Rice saw vital need for this book. He makes much of the strife and the graft and the brothels. Battling labor provides one of the high dramatic moments of the book when the city's power is sU'iick. But curiously introspective as he is in the rest of his book, Mr. Rice makes no conclusions, points no way out of the "imperalism" that is New York. Perhaps he neglected to do so purposely. In any event the novel will stand as an extraordinary picture of one of the most extraordinary cities on earth —P. G. F. clinccl to look par.lonizingly on the second-generation actors and actresses working on almost every lot. You nvay be pretty sure that few if any won parts through parental influence or executive sentiment. The movies are much too hard-headed for that, where acting is involved. Most of the relatives on studio payrolls ure high-salaried office stooges who can do no harm. Of the strictly cinematic second-generation players, only one has been accepted at his own value so far— Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. Tim Holt, son of Jack, seems fairly well establishes —or will b«, following his fat part in "Gold Is Where You Find It."

One is Leatrico Joy Gilbert, 13, who'll be. seen with Walter Huston, and Beulah Bondi in "Benefits Forgot," She looks aston- ishly like her father, the late John Gilbert.

(Roach, incidentally, whose fortune was based on kid pictures, has a pretty 17-year-old daughter whom he still won't allow to try for a screen career. Says she's too young).
