Of course, there are different kinds of muteness. It would be missing the mark to say that confession is not good for the soul. But the child who is .permitted certain reserves at the sensitive age, the age when his little fancies are prone to draw laughter, the greater the chances of his becoming more frank later on. Because he will reward sympathy confidence and therefore more confidences. 0*7 Mji'r- ! : '^ j i <^^ \.,.$ "'&>•#><>;<• *j* I.-; '.-* ' « • ' ...

NOW GO ON WITH TUB STOBY CHAPTER XXX TT did not occur to Jean Dunn— •^ until it was far too late to make any difference—that the robbery of her father's bank was to be a profoundly important event In her own life. Her father wrote to her about It, and she saw accounts of it in the newspapers; but although Jean shivered pleasantly as she read, and wrote a long letter to her father bubbling over with thankfulness that he had not been hurt—still, It did not seem to be anything that really touched ber, A few,gays after it had happened she was go- Ing her way just as she had •. before. She had other things to think about. She had promised Sandy to become his wife, at some hazy, unsettled time in the future. She had spent a miserably unhappy evening explaining to Bobby Wallace that she could not be his wife— and tbe misery had flared up into an outright quarrel when Bobby, learning at last that she loved Sandy, had tried, once again, to tell her that Sandy was a shady character. Afterward, to justify herself in her own mind, Jean had assured herself that she did love Sandy, deeply and truly, and that her affair with Bobby had been, after all, only a boy-and-girl romance. Vi'ith things standing thus, four or five days after the holdup, she answered ber desk buzzer one morning and went into Mr. Montague's office with pencil and notebook in hand, expecting to take dictation. Instead, she found Mr, Montague looking at ber with grave sympathy. Sandy Harkins, he told ber, bad been painfully hurt in an accident. —well/then, it just happened that Mr. Montague had a small sheaf of papers which he was anxious to get into Sandy's hands. It Jean wished, she could take a day or two off, go down and see him, and take the papers with-her. That, said tfr. Montague, would be more sat* isfactory, as far as ho was concerned, than entrusting . them to the malls, anyway. Would Jean care t6,do,it? ; :=• • ... She would; BO • Mr. Montague made;the arrangements. Sandy, it seemed, was In a little town named Midlothian—far off' on • a .branch' railroad line,.•inconvenient to'reach 1 >y train. By a lucky chance, Jean's friend, Mrs. Lewis, was staying at .he town of Plalnfield, which was halfway between =Dover and Mid- othian. If Jean cared to take a train-to Plalrifield, her employer would see tbat Mrs. Lewis met her :here with an auto and drove her the rest of the way to Midlothian. • * • 5 0 it happened that at about 2 o'clock that afternoon Jean Dunn got off a train at the junction city of Plalnfield and met Eve Lewis, who was waiting on the platform. Eve led her to a road ster, parked beyond the station, and slipped behind the wheel. As Eve. started the car, Jean turned to her anxious|y. "Have you—have you seen Sandy?" she asked, ;"Sure." said Eve. "Wuere'd you think I've been?" "How is he? Is he badly hurt?" "Not BO badly. Just a bullet through the shoulder." "A bullet t" Her voice was so startled, and ber face, when Eve glanced over at her, wag so suddenly white and shocked, that Eve bit her lip and t she had some private Joke, at last added, "Yes, they're more ; or less in business together."Late in the afternoon they passed irough Midlothian, a tiny, sleepy,' farming community. A short <Hfl- - tance beyond the town Eve turned off ,the road into a little lane and' abruptly pulled to a halt before « pleasant white farmhouse. She gasped with surprise, did not know No. any V landing field has been established '£'$» United States army on the p4 of Batan, midway between the Sppines and the Japanese island of ascent by man in a baloon was J>y PUatre de Rozier at Paris, ', to 1783. the brush afterward. If you have the slightest trace of dandruff, sterilize it, too. Speaking of dandruff, remember that there are tonics which, if used regularly, will eliminate it. Balsam oil shampoos are beneficial. Wash and sterlizie your combs and brushes daily. When you start to shop for a tonic to correct whatever scalp defect you have, look at some of the new varieties that are simple to use and, because a little goes a long way, economical as well. In addition to two tonics, the manufacturer puts out a special greaseless pomade which keeps the hair in place and makes a coiffure In the southwestern corner of tbe state. Sandy was in a critical state, and be wanted Jean to come to him. Long afterward, Jean remembered an od<J thing about her own emotions at this moment. She remembered that instead of feeling ^ sudden outpouring of racking anxiety and fear she had been chiefly concerned with the thought, "My lover has been hurt and he needs me—I mustn't let him down. I mustn't fail to be properly worried about him." In other words, ebe felt tbe need at emotion, rather than emotioa itself. But it was a long time before she bothered to daily good for hair that is split at the ends and of uneven lengths. Incidentally, this same cosmetic house has a nail polish that tends to, make nails healthy as well as beautiful. MONTAGUE was asking her she wanted to go to see Sandy—siie nodded, ber (ace pale fruitlessly spoken. wished she had not "Why. yes," she said, somewhat uncertainly. "I thought you knew." Jenn was still staring at her. "No." she said, her voice hardly above a whisper, "I thought he liart been In an accident." Eve smiled, rather grimly. "He has." she said. "I mean an auto accident." "Oh." Eve paused. "No—" Jean's hand was on Eve's forearm; "Eve. please tell me what happened." Eve disengaged her arm, "Watch out—you'll make me swerve off the road." she said. Then, more gently, she added. "I don't know the details. Jean, We'll be there in an hour or ao. Then you can ask him. I really don't know." * » • T HEY drove on, with Jean huddled in ber corner of the seat in a dismayed, bewildered silence. Once she asked, almost timidly, "Dp you kppw what—what kind of an accident Jt was?" And Eve answered. "Honest. Jean. I don't. I didn't mean to startle you. Anyhow, don't worry^-we'll be there pretty soon.* There was another silence—a rather long one, Once Jean asked ft Eve's husband was with Sandy in Midlothian. Learning tbat he ."Here we are, kid," she said. There was a lawn in front of e house, an orchard on one side of it and a cornfield on the other. A man came down' from tbe porch to greet them. He was Mr. Lewis, Eve's dapper little husband. "How's Sandy?" Jean asked anx- ioDsly, as he nodded to ber. He grinned and said, "Oh, he's dying— to see yon." Then he stopped grinning, looked at the heavy manila envelope which Mr. Montague bad • given her to take to Sandy, and said, "Got it?" She looked down, following his glance, and saw the envelope in her hand. "Oh, yes," she saldi "I don't know what it is, but it seems to be important. Mr. Montague told me to give it to Sandy." "Yeah," said Lewis. "Well, come on in and see him." • * * TTE led them into the house. A •*"*• stout, red-faced woman In a faded house dress was setting the table in the dining room; as they passed Lewis called to her to set two more places. Then they went up a flight of stairs and entered a cool, pleasant bedroom; and there, propped up among pillows in a big bed. lay Sandy. Jean ran to him, bent over, and kissed him. He reached up with >ne brawny arm and bugged her; ,nd as she raised her head he ooked fondly into her face, the ild, half-mocking light dancing In ils eyes again, and she felt her loubts and worries fall away. 'So there you are," he said. "J tnew you'd get here." All she could find to say was, Sandy—are you badly hurt?" He grinned, and pointed to a bandage that swathed his left shoulder, visible beneath his pa- ama coat. "I'm all right," he said. "Kind of sore, but that's all." "How did it ever happen, Sandy?" He grinned again. "Oh," he said, "another guy and I were out doing some shooting and be just pointed bis gun in the wrong direction." Lewis, loitering by the window, ug'.'p'l Snnrtv scowled- at him. 'Hey, you—scram," ne uuid. "We don't need you." The Lewises left, and Jean drew a straight-backed chair up beside the bed, Sandy saw the envelope In her hand, and reached out and took it fi? HARRY GRAYSOM ANN'ARBOR Mich—Michigan's rec* ord, which probably Is without paf• allel, emphasizes the importance of kicking. Since Fielding H. Vost came to Anil Armor in 1901, the Wolverines have lost only two games by fallurfe to negotiate points after touchdowns. Michigan still is dblng very well with ils punt, pass, and prayer. Its nent comeback this season can be traced to the punting of Sweet, nnd the passing of Renner. And Ev^rhnr- dus Is present to plaeekick those e>t- ledger. Oddly enough, Illinois, which Michigan meets nt Champaign on Nov. 9, wai- the opposing team on the two oc< casions that the Wolverines were nos-, ed out by their field goal kicker's in- ti n points On the right side of the ability to pick Up the extra point. The first instance popped Up In 1920. when Michigan was defeated by the lllini, 7-6. The second came last year when the aggregation coached by Bob Zuppke beat the Mnize nnd Blue by the same score, Both defeats were doled out here. Toe Mighty Weapon di one other occasion n Michigan team lost a game by n single point. That was in'the famous mud battle wilh Northwestern in Chicago in 1925. The Wildcats scored n field goal by | Tiny Lewis in that fray and then gave I Michigan an intentional safety, the ' final count being, 3-2. Incidentally, those three points were the only ones registered on Michigan that season. On the other hand, Michigan teams ( have won many tussles by single| point margins. In 1926 the Ann Arbor i club beat Ohio State, 17-16. In one of the greatest battles in Western Conference annals and the following week hosed out Minnesota, 7-6. In 1929. Joe Gembis, Michigan's expert place- kicker, booted the point that upset the Gophers, 7-6, while in 1933 the Wolverines tripped Illinois by the same score. Wolves Win Close Ones / In tha early days of the Yost regime, Michigan defeated Marquette, 6-5; Vanderbilt, 9-8; and South Dakota, 7-6. One of the most thrilling triumphs came in the 1916 game with Syracuse. The Orange piled up a 13-0 lead and, as the half rolled along, appeared to have the contest safely tucked away. But the Wolverines perked up late in the third period and outplayed the foe. They finally scored .a touchdown and kicked the goal, making the count 13-7. With time almost up, Michigan lug- fed the pigskin to the 15-yard line. Then the old fake place kick was worked for a touchdown. With the result hinging on the extra point, the renowned Michigan captain. Johnny Maulbetsch, booted true to give the Wolverines the decision, 14-13. When games are close, Michigan usually gets the decision. was, she asked, "Are they in business together T I've always won dered. Yon: fcnow, I ".ever did quite understand Jus! what Sandy does.' Eve |ooke4 at her, wide-eyed, and seeme4 about IP »peek; but gne checked bereelt, »»ll94 witty, as "Oh, yes," he said. "There was this, wasn't there?" He opened the envelope, drew out some papers, and glanced at them. Then be nodded, as if satisfied, put then) back in tbe envelope, and alia it under his pillow. He laid one band casually on Jean's knee, and began, "Well, baby—" when there was a step in tbe ball and ft man came into the room. He was a big roan and he had reddish hair and expressionless eyes of 9 chilly blue. He looked briefly at Jean, and then asked Sandy; "Well, bow about it?

Men and Machines Down the hall and nt another end of the building arc the offices of the went National Sleel Corporation. Ei-nest T. Weir, chairman of the board is a pleasant and forceful IhtervieWte. "I don't .think for a moment that the Wngher Law will stand the test of the courts, but If ft should It would be -iothing short of a revolution in the steel Industry. It would be n complete overthrew of all our set-up with oUr employees. We're getting along fine now . , . "And let me clear up your mind about all this balderdash about machines replacing labor. Why, machines lower the price of production nnti give il the necessary Increased consumption. Men replaced by mn- rh'iiier either slip Into increased production or are absorbed In new nnd allied industries. America has to be rebuilt every 30 years. We need to be rebuilt now — millions of homes, old-fashioned business' nnd public buildings of all kinds. Just watch us go." And then he said something that will please a great many people as much as it did mo: "Everybody in America knows that wars do not pay. Industry is not concerned with the immediate profits that would come to us from either selling materials |o belligerents or to ourselves. We all hope America has the brains nnd the courage to keep clear from anything tc do with any war." Over in West End, across the Ohio river, Lewis Leonard, the short, heavy-set International Secretary of the Amalgamated Association of Iron, Steel and Tin Workers, dropped this high explosive in my lap: "I want to predict seriously that Roosevelt will ge.l more labor votes in 1936 than he did in 1932. Organized labor is entirely for him and unorganized labor kncws he has done more for it than any half dozen Presidents put together . . . When the Wagner Law passes the court tests we'll repeat in steel whnt the.- United Miners did; we'll have every worker in our unions." At Homestead Now go with me to the steel suburb of Homestead, of infnmouh mem- cry. Here in 1892 armed thugs in barges floated down the beautiful Monongnhela and poured rifle fire Into striking pickets in the first labor massacre in American history. A block from this same battleground lies Ammon Street with its rows of old- fashioned tenement shacks, where families live in two and three rooms, without modern conveniences. In the dcorway of a frame house in a rear lot I stood and talked to a woman in a torn and ragged dress. Her brown hair was tousled and unkept, but there was something decent and pathetically fine about her. "My husband has just gone to the mills," she explained. "We have three children. He gets about four day.s work a week, at J3.88 a day. We can barely scrape along; seems like the children always got to have new shoes cr there's something wrong ... I don't hear people say much except they're ftntoh hardly a'ny* k e Rewfeveit, Id help us 69 much ns he K« cbtttd, Just then a thin, whlte-faced boy m nent, clean clothes, came home from school. I hnd been asking about how some of the neighbors felt nnd my hostess suggested that her boy might act ns my guide around the district. We started off, At each home we received much the some replies; prices Wefb high; Work was scarce; times were bnd; but people could hardly blame Roosevelt. "You going in the steel mills when you grow up?" I asked my under- .teed" twelve*year'-old guide. He had told me that he had just had n birthday and that he Was in the seventh grade. He looked up nt me out of soft brown eyes— frightened eyes. It was \lmosl ns If 1 had struck him. "Oh. t hope 1 won't haVc to go in the mills," he said in a low tone. "I clon'l want to do that. 1 want to be un aviator." Well, I am sure I do not know how he can wing his way out of the smoke and dirt, and foulness and discouragement of Homestead into the bright blue sky. Steel profits may keep him clfcse to the ground, and he may end up just as his father has done— a number in a roaring mill. Tomorrow. Unorgnulml mill some- Wl'ot disillusioned ntito workers still cling to KoosKvelt. "BatSefiefd Mrs. Alice Keel of Brlnklo'y, Ark., is attending the bedside of her son.

That evening at a regular monthly meeting of the South Chicago Trades and Labor Assembly, her husband, who is the secretary of the council and a capable labor organizer, set forth his ideas: "Organized labor will be from 75 per cent to 80 per cent for Roohevelt. Unorganized labor benefited even more from relief and as a consequent they are sure to be for Roosevelt. As long as labor has a job and money to buy things it is not kicking about the SO per cent increase in the cost of living. We know that the farmer has to be prosperous in order to buy the things that we make and in order to get the whole country prosperous . . . It' the Wagner Bill is declared constitutional we'll organize every steel worker in America within a year. But we're not going to get caught out on the end of a limb again like we did with Section 7A of the NRA." Prices Don't Matter I dropped in at Hammond. Indiana, where great gas refineries vie with the steel mills. I stopped a square- shouldered young man on the street 'Most everybody here is for Roosevelt," he said. "I work in a refinery here and honestly I only know one man there who is agaist Roosevelt— and he's sore over what happened to Huey . . . Sure, living expenses are higher—but what of it? I got the money to pay for things now. I just paid $3.50 for this pair of shoes. Two or three years ago I could have bought them for ?2.50. But I didn't have the J2.50 then, and I've got the $3.50 now, so what the hell do I care!" But this story is really about steel. Let's jump across the politically doubtful states of Indiana and Ohio into roaring Pittsburgh, built on hills that rise from its magnificent rivers. Of the scores of people I talked with here I would quote a half dozen. Two had richly furnished offices on the 28th floor of the tall Grant building. The first of these was named Earl Reed, an amiable, intelligent and experienced lawyer enjoying much prosperity in his early forties. BIU Faces Upset It was Reed who expounded and more or less exposed the opinion of the 58 volunteer "juhfices" who passed on the constitutionality of the Wagner Law for the benefit of the American Liberty League—and tb.e enlightenment and entertainrnet of the public geerally. This purely amateur "Supreme Court" had thumbs down en the Wagner Law—the most interesting provision of which is that 51 per cent of the men in any plant can force the company to recognize their union and deal for all employes through them. If it stands the test of the real Supreme Court in Washington it will mean that such non-union industries as steel, automotive awd rubber will be almost immediately unionized.
