Virile Industry Can Solve Our Problems •THE present session of Congress is beginning to resemble ,1 the meeting of that western frontier debating society, -Vhoae president announced that the evening's topic would "be "What's this country coming to?" with the high school teacher taking the affirmative and himself the negative. Which is to say that while Congress is full of talk about what this country may be coming to, it is having a mortally 'Jhard time deciding just what the affirmative and negative sides of the issue should be. 1 11 There is the matter of the budget, for instance. Congress -wants to see government expenditures cut, but the cutting "tool has a. handle like a red-hot poker. The army and the navy- are costing enormous sums, and bid fair to cost more; but with the world in the state it is in, the army and the navy look like "first-rate insurance which is worth whatever it may cost. 'there is relief—a stupendously expensive thing, which 1 must be bitten into pretty materially if \ye are to get our government costs down to anything resembling normal. But while Congress sidles up to this subject, the Cassandra voice of the conference of mayors ring in its ears, warning that to •cat relief will be to invite trouble by the carload lot. . Mayor LaGuardia of New York says bluntly that relief is going to cost more, not les.s. -The present business recession, he warns, means increased unemployment; far from tapering off, the relief load is due to increase, and increase materially, in .the coming winter. Mayor LaGuardia is fpllowe dby Mayor Harold H. Burton pf Cleveland, a conservative Republican. Conservative Bur- ton'talks just like Left-Wing LaGuardia. when relief is men- -ttoned. :— "£ u t off the federal relief program, says Mayor Burton, • and in Cleveland "100,000 people will be compelled to choose • •between starvation and a lawless search for food." ;, Other majors talk in the same vein; and from their re-marks one senses that the>relief load, onerous though it is, is ^something .that can neither be talked away nor ignored. We ••still have this enormous undigested mass of unemployed "men; humanitarian reasons aside, we cannot, in sheer self-defense, do anything but continue to carry it as long as it .exists. t; .'*>- •te ' ^*if * • (* •'..' W HICIJ seems to indicate, then, that our immediate salvation may not lie in the direction pf cutting- expenses and -slicing into the deficit. We should stop spending scores of ; millions on relief, but we can't do it while need exists; the ';need wjH.go on existing until private industry is able to ab; 'sorb the jobless workers. So Congress might well think about industry instead : of the,federal treasury, for a while. It might think about that ."delicate, tenuous thing called confidence, and how it can be '. restored; about the proposition that if government can't get - business back on its feet, it could try letting business get back •unaided—and unhampered. For our proble mean be solved, apparently, only in terms of a genuine business revival. Of f to a Flying Start "Progress" in Spain T HE effort to make the Spanish civil war a purely Spanish affair may go forward a little more easily, now that Soviet Russia has finally accepted the plan for removal of foreign soldiers, drawn up and adopted by other non-intervention powers. Under this plan, other nations would extend belligerent rights to the rebel government after "substantial progress" has been made in getting the foreign soldiers out of Spain. Russia had insisted that no such rights could be granted until all the foreigners had been withdrawn; now she has modified this stand, and substantial progress in ridding the war- torn country of soldiers from other lands should now be possible. There is not, however, any way to turn the clock back. The war in Spain has left scars which that hapless country .\vilj feel for decades to come. And some of the worst of them were made by people who were not Spaniards. By DK. MOBKIS FISHBEIN K4Jtor, jonrna) pi the American Medical AssocUHon, «ad at 1 Br»el4, the Health Magazine. Electric Needle Removes Excess air But Process Demands Much Patience This is the ninth and article of n series in which Dr. Fislilxsili discusses l|ie hair, its uil- me|it$ 4«<1 Us care. (No. 3S5J There are many methods for destroy- j, ing or concealing excess hair Ont of the most commonly recommended methods is the use of the electric . needle. Here, however, patience is required as well as endurance. The pain is usually slight. In fuel. the doctor is likely to be exhausted long before the patient is tired. In this process, the needle carrying the current is inserted into th'i hair follicle and a weak electric current is turned on for a brief time. This .wcrk requires experience before it tan be done properly. Seldom is it possible to remove more than 10 to 15 hairs in a .single sitting. With from 15,000 to 19,000 hairs, in a beard, and anywhere from 7(X) to 1200 OK an upper lip, it is understood how removal of hairs one by one is a long, difficult process. Simply because of thij, fact, various other methods have been attempted For -4 while the us* of the X-ray w* exploited for this purpose but now most experts do not advise the use of the X-r^y—because of possible to the tissues. The use of a stiff wax is sometimes attempted— the wax being applied and after it has hardened, pulled off— the huir corning with it. This does not permanently remove average hair although occasionally very fine hair may be permanently removed by this meth&d. Hair may also be rubbed off with pumice stone and it may be removed by depilatories which dissolve the hair None of these, however, attacks the hair roots. Sometimes the depilatories are poisonous. Moit modern method is the use of the safety raior, which in most m- ilances produces a successful result each time if properly employed. Before any one attempts any radical method for the removal of large uj/jounus of hair, a physician should certajnly be consulted as to the possible dangers to the skin from repeated u ritation. Such irritation is particularly dangerous, when it involves pig- mentcd areas or mojes. America's spert, baseball, is 4 pom- bination of th« tw A Book a Day By Bruce Cation CoanUU.ltn.Xttl.

He was thumping on the outside of her tent with his finger, trying- to awaken her. "Yes! In just a moment, Bob." She dressed with incredible speed. Bob met her outside in the darkness, holding her shoulder pack. "I left a note telling them we would be gone indefinitely," he said, "and enough orders to keep Hades and Holliman busy for a week, so they won^; get inquisitive. They ca.n make the camp a lot more homey, and build a larger horse corral." It was not yet 4 9. m., and the two partners felt a sense of adventure at starting to explore an unknown cave. Thu climb up the cliff ladders itself was thrilling. At the very rim of the great rock lip they sat down, dangling their foet out over 600 feet of space, to eat the breakfast Bob had brought In his pack. "Just imagine — we're as high as a, 60 story skyscraper, Bob 1 ." •'Regular penthouse, almost," grinned the young scientist. "But av.-ful poor elevator service." 'Lissa laughed aloud. They could just see the first rays of morning, an opal glow straight ahead heralding the coming of the sun god. The black blanket of the desert}and was fading into pinkish gray; soon it would be a mere coverlet of pastel blues and tans. They ate, mostly in silence, im-? oressed by the majesty of the mountains, the imcpmparabla lift of spirit that comes from greeting the sun on a height. 'Lissa felt very near to Bob Barry in that quarter hour, near and intimate, jand— content. * i * WHEN they were through they " hesitated for a moment, , watching the crescendo of color, j the explosion of dawn. "It's mar* ' velous, Mary Melissa, isn't jit?" be V/hispered. "Yes," she whispere4 back. "Heavenly." They looked at each oth°r and smiled. 'Happy?" he murmured. The girl nodded. He had to force himself out of tho personal mood. With a sud- de-*! wild cry he arose and pulled her to her feet. "Into the dungeon for you, damsel!" he orated in mock dra me. "Ah-h-h-h, whatever is therfe we'll beard in its den." She laughed with him, but she kr_;w he was serious, anxious to explore. He strapped his pack bt'.k on—it carried a canteen and fo^rl for lunch, also a gasoline lantern—and led her to the entrance of the tomb cave. "I'll light the lantern now," he said. It made brilliant light, and at once it turned the cavern into a sort of fairyland. They were able to proceed at an easy pace, sloping gently down a hallway, then up and turn, down and up again. The place seemed endless. Bob was studying everything carefully. Then they stooped through a small opening and came into a room so large that their light would not penetrate all of it. "Tills is unbelievable, Bob!'-' 'Lissa exclaimed. "I can hardly imagine anything so beautiful!" "Just like Carlsbad. Or Colossal Cave, near Tucson. Common type of cave formation in the southwest. Some of these columns are millions of years old." * if * TDOB was more concerned with •*"* finding an avenue through the new room. He noted frequently the air current. It wasn't stiong, but it was definite. "It isn't a tomb, after all," he spoke as if to himself. "This was used for something else. That pne body may have been placed up there just to mislead snooping enemies or something." Progress was slow now. The lantern cast ghostly shadows among the floor and ceiling formations. It was easy for the two to become separated and lose sight of each other. Often there were drops of 40 or 50 feet which had to be descended on hands and feet and then at some risk. But they were eager to press on, keen in their zest for exploration. They crawled and climbed and slid for two or three hour?, when gob xernem-, bercd, to c«H a halt for r^t, gratefully 'Lissa sat aown pear him, "Say Bob," she spoke in sudden alarm, "coiiltf you—can you find our way back out of here?" He feigned surprise for a moment, then quickly grinned. "Sure thing," he declared. "I've been marking every turn, with pieces of chalk I brought just for the purpose, either white or black. See?" He showed her the markings. "I anticipated that worry." Bob slipped his pack off his shoulders to rest them, and placed it against a stone. As he sat there he began studying rock formations with his pocket magnifying glass. This interest led him a few feet away. They talked, mostly of geology, for a quarter hour or so. "Lot's move on. Rested, 'Lissa?" "Feel fine," she declared. "I'll carry the lantern for a while, Bob, and you can be more free to study the stones." * * * Sr.lrclcd AmPrlcnnn In towns. moved with considerable •*• caution now. Much of the flooy was slanting, and slippery with loose rocks and earth. They came to a ledge, a sort of subterranean cliff edge. She held the lantern up and out, but neither of them could see the bottom. It seemed like the proverbial bottomless pit, down there in the depth of Mother Earth. "Gee, it's—scary!" 'Lissa shivered in exaggerated manner, which wasn't quite all pretense. "It is, at that," Bob agreed. "This confounded cave gets bigger and bigger. And it's like a maze, with all these limestone deposits." He leaned over the edge. The drop seemed to be sheer. He threw a re-cK, am; ;:*i.-nn»«>d the depth at about JOO feet. "Hold out the lantern again, 'Lissa," he requested. "Shield your eyes then, and maybe you can see the bottom." It might have happened to any person. Certainly it was one of those accidents for which thsre is no accounting, no explanation. 'Lissa swung the gasoline Jight by its handle out over the rpck ledge-r-and it slipped from her hand! She gasped. Somewhere half way down ft hit—crack!—tinkle!—flicker— and a final BANG! as the fvjel ex-> ploded. A hellish glare penetrated the subterranean depths for 4 moinent. Then the darkness was complete, Stifling. Silen.ce reigned for a second or (WO- But as full reali?atiii« of their plight reached her, "'~ " gave a hysterical scream. (To Be - ' OnorntinR on the sensible theory that iwo helpings of n good thine are better thon one, Henry C, Beck hns followed his successful book, "Forgotten Towns- of Southern New Jersey," with an ciiunlly entfrtninirift sequel—"More forgotten Towns of Southern New Jet-sey" (Dutton: $:U5>, Mr. Beck is one of the most refresh- int; nnd readable oC historians, lie sprcinll7.es in the obscure byways of hi* own slnte; much delving into old mai-ns, miwty documents nnd forgotten hi'.torierf is coupled with n tremendous' nmourtt of field research, nnd the result is history which is Soundly infor- nuitivo nnd quaintly chorming. Every state has its forgotten (owns —places which somehow got missed in the inarch of progress, and which either vanished entirely or dwindled to obscure hamlets, unheard-of a dozen miles aWny. In Iheir day, some of Ihese wero important trade or manufacturing centers; some of them were "boom towns." which once nourished dreiiin.s of greatness; now no one knows about them, until someone like Mr. Beck dig* up I lie facts about them. Now you may live n great distance from NfW Jersey; yet you will not. for that reason, find this book about Jersey towns uninteresting. Wouldn't you. for instance, like lo know about Varmintown. where Abe Lincoln's kin once lived'.' Can you be indifferent In places with names like Bread and Cheese Run. Recklcsstown, Apple Pic Hill, Foollown or Buckshutem? These are just samples. Mr. Beck has ranged wide and dug up a wealth of local history which, America being whut it i.s, is not really local lit nil. He has not only made an important contribution to Americana; he has written a book which is genuinely delightful reading. ing to get the idea that he is a queer bird, if he finds his mother weepinu over his too-well-padded bones. The other youngsters arc going lo call him "Fatty." nf course, bill thai doesn't mailer. If lie wasn't Fully, he would be "Re<V," or "Skinny," or even "Kewp." as one young friend of ours was called because- he resembled a Kewpie doll. Even to the little top knot thai distinguished the adored pels of a decade ago. Our grand Kewp is dead, anil We loved him so. I never knew a finer man. The nick name was his school christening, and he rather liked it. As a rule fat jicople arc placid and happy. They are noi thin skinned or over sensitive. Il i.s the pnre.nl who usually suffers.

Accents Self-Consciousness II oflen happens, of course, Ihnt young people going through certain phases of over growth, sometimes up and sometimes sideways, feel self- conscious and ashamed, because it usually hits them at the most sensitive time of their lives. The adolescent is nearly always awkward, for instance, and does the most embarrassing things at precisely the time he wishes to mnkc the best impression. The girl or boy who have been right cheerful about their si/.e up to twelve or thirteen, may suddenly hate themselves.
