Rewards for Being a Glorious Failure M USING on Herbert Hoover's visit to the campus of Colby collegre. where he presided over services celebrating the 100th anniversary of the death of Elijah Lovejoy, one is forced to suspect that we spend too much time telling our youngsters-how to become successes' and not enough time enlarging 1 on the virtues of failure. For this Elijah Lovejoy was a flat failure if there ever was one, and he paid for his failure with his life. But there was something in his failure which, a full century after his death; was' strong enough to draw a former President of the Uffited States to his grave and to provoke the utterance of wise and noble words about his example. So complete a flop was Elijah Lovejoy, indeed, that you may not be able to remember who he wa*s or what he did. So here are a few words of explanation. * * * T OVEJOY, then, was an idealistic young graduate of Colby JL College who headed out to the Illinois prarie country away back in the 1820's and became a newspaper editor in the town of Alton. He became an anti-slavery agitator, spoke his mind freely in his paper, aroused intense antagonism among the townspeople, and was finally mobbed by a gang of toughs who wrecked his presses, burned his office and beat him to death. Which, as you must admit, was a fairly ignominous end for an: ambitious young editor to come to. An industrious newspaper owner in a rising frontier city should grow rich and influential, if he plays his cards right: why all this fuss about the centennial of one who got himself lynched, instead? Obviously, there must be cases in which failure is better thai! success. It is pretty certain that if Lovejoy had kept a civil tongue in his head, had offended no one and had grown to a peaceful and prosperous old age, no ex-presidents would be making.speeches at his gravestone. He would simply be one of the long list of forgotten and undistinguished successes: instead, he is immortalized as one of the smaller group of glorious failures. I .... ,'; :.-.. I...". * * * W HICH may meany perhaps, that our ideas of what constitutes ;suceess:and failure are cockeyed. The visible, iangi- ble>e\yard^u|iua'llV ; go. to the man who can keep his righteous indignatioinVfin;eheck.nvho can suppress his anger at injustice whentiSejfprfisffiit'might do him harm, who can trim his sails to meetthe-prevailing wind. But it is often the other kind 'of m&nTxvho is.worth remembering. • For we are not really such dollar-worshipers as we are supposed to be. There is something in us which always responds to the man who can sacrifice himself on the pyre of an ideal. We know that such a man has not lost anything worth keeping—not even if he has lost life itself. In a way that defies the ordinary rules of common sense, he has turned failure into a lasting success. Dirigible Exit THE big dirigible mooring mast at St. Hubert Airport, 1 Montreal, built at a cost of nearly $1,000,000 is going to be dismantled and sold as scrap metal. This mast was used only once—when the British dirigible JR-100 visited Montreal in 1930. Ever since then it has stood idle; and the fact that the wreckers have at last been called in is a cmiet announcement of the end of the era in which we expected the dirigible to play an important part in the world's transportation system. Remember that era? We talked of great sky-liners then, enjoyed imaginary pictures of areial Leviathans, thrilled to the graceful flight of the big, silvery airships, and confidently supposed that it wouldn't be long before the skyways were full of them. But the fatal flaws which seem to'be inherent in that type of air carrier became all to clear, as years passed ; and the dismantling of this Montreal mooring mast is an un- obsrusive symbol that we have withdrawn from a game we once thought we could win easily. |Hi$ IS f MS MOOSe THAT BUluT, HIS IS THE MAW WHO Coes/oJ'T IN TH6 HOUSe THAT WASN'T BUILT.

Causes of Irksome Excess Hair May Lie in Basic Body Changes This is the eighth in a series liy f)r, Fishbeln in which he deals with the hair-, its ailments and its care. (No. :»!> Although circus side-shows feature dog-faced boys and bearded women overgrowth of the hair about the body is not an exceedingly unusual condition. There are records even of human keings who grew hair at the base u: the spine, resembling the tail of an animal. When women get superfluous hair on parts of the body where hair should not ordinarily develop, they are likely to resort to all sorts of methods (some f.f them dangerous) to get rid of the hair and are willing to try and sort ol schemes that anybody develops for the purpose. Overgrowth of hair on the bodies ol women is more likely to occur jusf after they have passed 45 years of age It occurs also occasionally in early womanhood. A young girl with fine hair on her face may treat the matter lightly if her appearance otherwise ir attractive. If, however, the hair is dark in colo' and is associated with a coarseness o' the skin, shs may become greatly con cerned. A great deal depends, o' course, on whether the psychologic 9S yects of the life of the girl are other wise normal. There seems to be no doubt that tht with glandular conditions. It is not, excess growth of haair is associated however, possible to say in every case exactly which glands are not functioning correctly or which may be functioning excessively. Neither is it possible in many instances to do anything very much about it so far as the treatment of the glands is concerned. Certainly there are some diseases which represent definite disorders of the glands in which the excessive hair is merely a part of a general change in the body. There is no evidence to prove that the use of face creams will cause the growth of hair on the face. Excessive growth of hair has been seen on the faces of women who have never used creams. Other v/omen have used creams day after day without excessive growth of hair. It has been alleged that over-exposure to the wind or to the sun may be responsible for excessive growth of hair but here again there is no evidence that these factors are important.

"Purty day, ain't it 'Lissa?" he greeted, "Whyn't you come ride over with me, where I'm cuttin' poles at? Hunh?" Not his words, but his inflection, both angered and frightened the girl. His tone was almost an insult. "Thank you, but I must go on to camp." She tried to be very formal. "Aw, come on! Come on! There ain't no hurry. Might's well enjoy this trip. We got to be out here a long time together. I bet I could show you a right good time." It was the onjy approach Scott Holliman knew. He would have used it in the tiny dance hall at Blanco Canyon, or in the larger and greasier one at Nogales and the gaudier one at Tucson. But it didn't work here. Too mad to reply with dignity, and too refined to be undignified, Mary Melissa simply spurred her horse and galloped off. She headed direct for camp, intending as a partner in the expedition to report the matter at once to Bob Barry and Jet him settle it with Holliman. "Dr. Barry?" she called, dismounting. She hadn't quite decided to call him "Bob" yet, even though he used her pet name now. There was no answer. She investigated and found the camp empty. Hades Jones she knew was away for the day, but she had left Bob and Honey Bee Girl in camp. She wasn't at all pleased to find herself alone there; she was frightened, knowing that iioi» liman was approaching. She rode off again and stayed alone. Hunger drove her back about noon, and she saw Bob and Honey Bee climbing down the castle ladders. * * * H ES emotions were oddly mixed, in all truth, when the two reached camp. First made angry by an uncouth man, a hungry girl, who finds no food but sees the pretty coolc out alone with the potential lover, is in no mood for frivolty. "Delightful day for a walk, I'm sure!" She almost snapped it at Bob and Honey Bee. She was not smiling. Bob missed the implication entirely. "Say, 'Lissa!" ho was beaming again. His boyish enthusiasms were one very vital part of Robert Barry's charm. "Listen here —Honey Bee's a honey, and no joking!" Bob's statement was, in reality, one of thanks, lest he hurt the Indian's feelings again. But he did not notice the anger and hurt that his statement reflected in Mary Melissa's face. The white girl ed a little, her lips tight. "Know what she did, 'Lissa? Being an Indian, she- knows all sorts of Indian signs and symbols. Well, she picked out one up in the cliff that may be extremely valuable to us!" He paused, dramatically. But Mary Melissa was just staring, her big brown eyes studying him. Bob saw then that she was unusually sober. He had become accustomed to her smile. Instantly he was concerned. His voice was lowered. "Why—what is it, 'Lissa?" He took her hand, held it, .stooped a bit to be near her. "Is something wrong? Something I—?" He wasn't sure what to say, and so he stammered. He was so very honesj about it that Mary Melissa's emotions gave w«y to her good sense. She forced a bit more animation, a feeble smile, and answered him. "Nothing important—Bob. Just —one of the horses gave a little trouble. Nothing really. Please go on. What about the Indian sis'ns? Why is it important? I am very interested." * * # H E smiled bade at her then in renewed enthusiasm for his report. "It led to a secret chamber. We c!ug into it. First thought it was nothing but a cairn. We found one body near Ihe entrance. But later I discovered u draft, an up-current ol' air. 'Lissa, this may bo a secret tunnel to that cave, from the valley level somewhere! See?" "I see. Oh, Bob!" His excitement was contagious, so that 'Lissa relaxed from her ugly mood. This was no time, she realized, to tell him about Scott Holliman, even if she got him away from Honey Bee, in private. Fur better to ignore Holliman, or work out her own problem with him, than to bother Bob. These thoughts raced through her mind in a few seconds, while Bob was explaining in detuil the Indian sign and the walled opening up in the clifV castle. Honey Bee had hastened about the business of preparing food. "And now listen, both of you." Bob called Honey Boo back into the conference. "I've given this considerable thought. After all, Miss Lune is the real patron of this expedition. We two are the mainstays, 1 mean. I don't know what that new dungeon means, but I have a hunch it's important as possible. Now—if that news gets out, and the University professors get wind of it, we'll have maybe a dozen expeditions down here, probably reporters from newspapers and everything, Maybe be-fore we could explore it ourselves. See? So. keep it quiet. I could trust old Hudcs, but tins Holliman is a .Uranger. He—" "Yes! Yes indeed, Bob!" : L'.r:r wus emphatic. "Honey Dee, Miss Lane and 1 are going to explore that new cr.vc alone, tomorrow. We'll be gone a long time, maybe. But we will take plent of food and water. Don't you breathe a word to the other men, ever. Not u hint. Understand'." 1 * * » T.TONEY BEE nodded. If her •*"*• man said so, it was law. She was offended :'t the idea of his taking the white girl, when she herself had been the one to reveal the tunnel, but she couldn't say so now. Besides, Scott Holiiman had ridden into camp with more building material, and with rather broad hints ;i.s to his hunger. Holliman sat ucross the table from the other two when the late lunch WHS served. Hades Jones wouldn't be Dtn.1; until at'ltr dark, they knew. Holliman stared; rather openly at Mary Melissa. She was ignoring him, and she was glowing. The enthusiasm of Bob's discovery was reflected in her now. At'iled to that was the knowledge that he really hadn't been off on a tete-a-tete with Honey Bee. Holliman watched her smile, saw the beauty of her features and thi- grace of her form. He chuckled, airnost audibly, at the thought of Honey Bee's hiring him to woo Mary Melissa. He bad some plans. (To Be HOLLYWOOD—Spending u couple of hours with Fernand Gravel is something like thumbing through a condensed, brighely-written encyclopedia. One learns about stag hunting in France, wttys to relax and go to sleep quickly, uniforms of the Nopoleonic army, and how tt> identify the best pup in a litter. There also will be chapters ott how to train a horse to gallop backward, the casting of tin soldiers, how a mongoose fights u cobra, fencing, candid cameras, and which chee.se goas best with what kind of wine. Confronted with such absorbing information an interviewer—this interviewer, anyway—forgets to ask Grant what he things of American actresses, and why our films are technically superior to foreign ones. After all. it i-sn't every day that I can see and hear an internationally famous actor giving an imitation of a mongoos. Gravel just has started work with Carole Lombard in "Food for Scan- lal." His first American picture was 'The- King and the Chorus Girl," in which many people remarked his re- .emblance to the Duke of Windsor. There is a likeness, but it's all in Gravel's favor; also » difference in age. The actor will be 29 on Chrislmas day. "BeoK Ham!" He is nol n Frenchman, but a Belgian educated in England. Both parents were stage people. He lives in France, mostly has made French pictures, and married a French stage star. Retains his Belgian citizenship, though. It was in the Belgian cavalry thai he learned riding and fencing. But for the vile French cigarels he smokes and the rare mispronunciation of a word, you'd tlunk him an American. His wife, Jane Renouurt, is here now and just beginning to learn English. After her first lesson, in which she was coached by a joker, she marched up to Gravel and declared: "You—are—a— beeg—ham!" First morning he arrived at the studio, Gravel remarked lo Mervyn Ler Roy, to whom lie is under personal contract, that it was quite an adventure driving a car in Los Angeles— (specially since he never had driven before. LeRoy, horrified, immediately hired a chauffeur to guard his ac- lor's precious neck. Gravel is an ex- pert driver, of course. Also, he almost certainly is the best horseman in Hollywood. Besides competing in hunts and shows abroad, lie makes :< hobby of "dre.isage"—train- ing a mount to go through all sorts of j/nits- and maneuvers without any perceptible command—just by Ihe pressure of a knee or Ihe faintest twitch of a rein. Galloping backward is only one of the stunts. Won by n Hnre Gravel has a lot of hobbies. He has designed and had molded some 13.000 tin soldiers accurately, representing all the uniforms and equipment-of Napoleon's army. He himself makes miniatures of military headgear. Historical societies, museums and movie researches call on him for data. In central France, Gravel has a farm which produces everything but its own bread. He raises clogs, but only for pets; says his wife's perfume spoils their noses for hunting. He likes mounted hunting best. Mast fun he ever had was a hare hunt which his crowd stance! right on the beach al Denuville. The hare ran into a drug store with 15 dogs after it. Gravel likes to dance, fence, lake , Although he has written the lyrics'JIp: some published songs, and has sung|r many stage ami movie musicals.

Have an ideu that it is high time children were perr milled to cut the apron string, and pride themselves on the fact that they permit no mother fixations. "Being with them too much does it," remarks the sprightly young matron. "Today's children can get out. Their mothers can get away. I am glad my child will have the chance those other children missed." Yesterday's children, and the day before yesterday's, were less tied to their parents than we think. Besides families being larger each child had to share attention, as wtll as help with the younger fry. He walked miles to school and got home at dark, if he lived in the country. He played on the .sidewalk or in the park, if he lived in town. He did errands as do today's children. He was not fixed on his motlier, because as often as not she was not there to fix to. The coddled child is today's product, not yesterday's. Small families, closer living quai"t«rs and the ubiquitous apwtm.ent have contracted reUition- ships.
