Dreams Can't Charm Away Human Ties I N THE path of the sentimentalist there is always one big: if unforeseen, stumbling 1 block. People just don't seem to Change their characters overnight; the sentimental Soul Who thinks they will is laying up a big disillusionment for himself. Nothing could have been lovelier than the sentimental marriage-in-a-reform-school which was arranged last sum- mei',.fQr a feminine: inmate of such an institution in Oklahoma, Afid nothing could have been more disheartening—or more human and natural^-than the way the thing flivvered. -& * * T'.AST summer^he supperintendent of Oklahoma's state in- Lt dustrial school for girls decided that a bit of wholesome social, life would do her charges good. Carefully supervised daittes Were arranged; and at one of them a boy "from outsider fell-in k>ve with and proposed to one of the girls. V.TJfeboy was investigated and found to be a decent, law- abiding lad; the girl swore she was genuinely in love. A marriage was arranged. State officials graced the ceremony with tire*'presence; other girls in the school contributed little gifts, someone baked a cake, ancl the state's present to the OTide \vas a parole. Here was a sentimentalist's field day, if there ever was one;! and it ought to have been followed by a romanic happy- everafter story, with the sewing of tiny garments to follow in.due time. But somehow it wasn't. In something under a month the thing went sour. AT. \ Anc ! today the £"•' is back in the industrial school and the boy has sued for divorce, complaining: "She only mar-. .rredme-to get out of the school, and she did not intend to live With me." *- ' Sent!rental souls are forever stubbing their toes over . something Jike this. But the trouble in these cases is with the sentimentalist. not with the unredeemed sinners who were the objects of •• the sentiment. * iv J* 161 " 6 is , a lar # e and ornery streak of the old Adam in all of us, and it can't be charmed away by graceful gestures or honeyed words. The person who thinks it can is simply i begging for trouble. * - ''' - ' .* + * : ,' THIS Oklahoma experiment might have worked, at that. The . l, authorities might have talked turkey to the young woman extiMihmg that marriage wasn't just a way to get out of the .reform school, but was instead a challenge to the best that was in her, "'«. i InteI Hgerit sentiment never forgets that life is hard and that pwpfe are frail. It carries an "or else" in its handbag. It insists that those who would be helped must also help •themselves. But sentimentalism forgets all that, bathes the landscape in a haze of romance—and then wonders why, in the end, things didn't turn out well. Box Office Football .U7HETHER it be true that the boys on the University of : *u i. ^^bur-sh footba n team actually demanded cash on the barrelhead as a reward for participation in a nost-season gameis something for Pittsburgh to figure out. But if they .did, the affair reflects discredit on American university authorities generally rather than on the boys themselves American universities have made football a professional t. It is foolish to deny this, when gate receipts are count- the hundred thousand and an athlttic department is . . °0 for one "bowl" game. That sort of money T* Iv." L a Part ama teur sport, and never will be. It the boys who are drawing that kind of money through gate decide that they would like a little of it for thern- , who can wonder at it? They may be confused about status as students playing a game for the fun of it - confusion is entirely the fault of the university au- ss who let the game get out of hand. of the heat cabinets recently developed. NEXT: Multiple sclerosis, a By Bruce Catton Example, in Nobilliy hy Madame Curie. If the world nowadays seems to bu composed largely of fools following megalomaniacs down a steep place into trie sea, there is still reassurance to be had. You can get a lot of it from "Madame Curie," an exceedingly fine biography of her great scientist written by her daughter, Eve Curie, (Doubleday, Doran: $3.50). For this book shows what the race can produce. It shows that greed is not. nftor all, necessarily the mainspring of human activity; that there can be people who live magnificently for the race, intsend of for themselves, nnd that race responds to thorn when they do appear. Eve Curie depicts her mother's life as une long struggle—against poverty, loneliness, heart-break, physical weakness, discouragement and plain human weariness. From its beginning in Warsaw to its climax in Paris. Marie Curie had to fight—never once for herself, always for an ideal. She ancl her husband rcvolutioni/.ecl science. They gave the fruits of their discoveries to the world, scorning tho ^suggestion that they patent their process ancl become rich. France, which lad millions to spend on armaments, could not even spare the few francs to j give these two geniuses a decent lab j oratory, leave alone a decent persona income. Picrro Curio died before the nation finally got around to smoothing th- iath a liltlo. Mario Curie lived tin— but even she at last cnmo into possession of a grain of radium, tlie clenien she herself had discovered, onl> through the generosity of American women. The way led uphill almost to the last footstep. There have been few more brilliant women ancl few more completely noble human beings. Reading this biography is like having the dark fog lift for a moment, so that one can get a dazzling glimpse of what humanity is capable of in its finest moments. An airplane, flying at a speed of 280 miles an hour, could fly around the moon at its equator in 24 hours.

Major Symptoms of General"Paresis Are Delusions Loss of Body Control This is the fifth in a series in which Dr. Fisiibein discusses the « cause, effect and treatment (,f dis- , eases of the nervous system.

The famou3 Japanese investigator Noguchi, demonstrated the presence of the spirochete organism in patients Who had died from paresis. Not a large proportion of those who have this ben- areal infection ultimately develop / Indeed, it has been asserted that there is a special kind of .<-. troche a- that causes paresis, but this has not been absolutely proved. The .condition is more frequent in men than in women. It comes on late in life. In order to determine whether the patient has paresis it is customary to study the blood and the spinal fluid to prove definitely the presence of this infection. As the disease advances, there are change* in the actions of the eyes and the reflexes of tb« body which help to establish the diagaosis. One of the most important symptoms is the inability of the person to co-ordinate his actions of the brain, nerves and muscles. When a person with this rendition stands in a room with the eyes shut, he frequently falls over because of inability to co-ordinate prop- trly. Particularly serious, however, are i the mental symptoms. ! I first symptoms, bu | patients usually develop delusions of , grandeur and gradual loss of sanity. Delusions take many strange forms. One man of ordinary income went into a department store and ordered a thousand dollars worth of Bilk underwear. A baker doing ordinary business ordered 27 delivery trucks to take care of the increase in business which he thought wa.s going to ix;cur. Even be/ore such grand symptoms, these people have difficulty with their speech. There also are tremors of the hps, tongue and fingers and many other symptoms which indicate to the physician that something is wrong, with the brain and nervous system. It is possible, with modern methods of treatment, to do a great deal for such patients. Treatment includes not only the best possible care, preferably in an institution, but also trial of the newer methods involving such drug* as tryparsarnide and the new fever treatment brought about by the injection of malaria; by the use of nonspecific protein or by the use of some CAST OP CHAU.VCTI3HS no BRUT n.VUHY—IILTO, ex- plorrr. .M !•! 1.1 S S .V I< A N K — lii-rolne, flnrry'N pnrlm'r. 11H\ K\ HK K filll I.—I n () in n ; mnnlirr of llnrry'« p»rly« H MHOS .lOMOS—plom-cr; illfin- hcr IJnrry'w iiitrly, * * * S t n r t I n K nut In for Unit nfr«'r 111* IIIMK nli- Hi'iH'i , Minify II ee Girl nrrun-H iu- uri-nuingly lilltcr toward .Mcllxmi. CHAPTER XXIII "TT7E have about a hundred matches here, nnd six candles." Bob was inspecting his shoulder pack, now reclaimed. "They would serve us in event the flashlight failed." 'Lissa smiled up at him. They were alone in the cavern again, but she was not afraid now. "I should have had the flashlight in my own pocket, of course," he resumed. "But it's kind of bulky. And I never dreanv.-d of such an emergency as we faced." "Let's forget all tha'rfjj she suggested. "Let's—plan things!" He caressed her, pausing to kiss her twice. "Say, partner, you're wonderful, aren't you?" •I want you to think so, anyway, Dr. Barry!" They walked very close together, with her head touching his shoulder. "What shall we plan?" he queried. "Home? Career? Happiness? Where do you wajpt to live, sweetheart?" "With you." "I know; but—where? New York? Arizona? Tirnbuctoo?" She smiled Dp at him again. "With you. That's all I ask." The climbing was not easy. Bob remembered that they had to go up a total of 600 feet, and must walk perhaps three times that distance because of the turns and curves in the great underground room. The floor was very fough, too "We must be over half way up, he told her, after a while. "Want to rest a moment?" "No. But, Bob—I'm seeing things again!" "Yes' What?" *I just saw a flash of light, of reflected light, when your pocket lamp wasn't turned that way." * * * I T was true. Two minutes later they saw ihe pinpoint of direct light gleaming from an angle above them. "HELLO!" shouted Bob. "WHO IS IT?" "Bawb? . . . Bawb? Are you all right? It is Honey Bee. Bawb?" The tv/o hastened to join, her. Her brilliant gasoline lantern illuminated a really joyous reunion there. There was much talk. 'Lissa thought she had never seen ihe Indian's face show such animation. Suddenly she felt a surge of pity for Honey Bee; the poor girl thought herself in love with Bob, 'Lissa suddenly remembered. In that instant, oddly enough, 'Lissa's mind skipped back over the 3000 miles to New York City, back a few years, to single out a statement made by a university professor whom she had greatly respected. "Life has only one real tragedy," tho professor had said. "It is unrequited love," 'Lissa set herself to bo cordial to Honey Bee, but the cordiality was not reciprocated. Apparently only Bob existed to the red girl. Bob didn't notice the slight. "Did you tell?" he was demanding. "Did you tell the others?" "No," she shook her head. "They think you wont theo other way, maybe back to town. Holliman iss gone." "Gone where?" "He disappear. He do not say where." "And Hades Jones?" Bob was intent on his questioning. "He iss go crazy almost, looking for you." "I'll bet!" snapped Bob, grinning. "Good old Hades. Well look, Honey Bee, you're grant, nut to tell. I'm sure glad, because it didn't pan out anyway. I mean, the cave is nothing but a big hole, and if we hadn't gotten lost in it we'd have been out that same afternoon. And if we—" * * * T>OB had to think fast. He hadn't •*-* expected to meet Honey Bee or anyone up here, and he hadn't fully prepared the talc he must tell. "—you see, I ought to be kicked, but the fact is, Honey Bee, I lost my pack. I—I had some candy, and a sandwich or two, in, my pockets, and had the canteen, or we'd hav*: been out of luck sure enough. We just found the pack a while ago. And we're starved, too. There wasn't much food in it, you remember." "Why 'lid you not come back out, Bawb?" Honey Bee was concerned. "Oh! Oh, I forgot to say—we— I dropped the lantern and we were lost. Dropped it after I had put the pack down somewhere. It fell over a rock, the lantern, I mean, and exploded. Then we couldn't find the pack agais, or our way back out All my matches, even my pocket flash, were in the pack." 'Lissa spoko up then. "Ho means I dropped the lantern, Honey Bee. I did. I am sorry, for everybody's sake. It v/as inexcusable." Honey Bee made no reply, but her i'r-;' underwent such a pronounced change that even Bob was concerned by it. The red girl literally reflected hatred. She glared at Mary Melissa in a manner almost fiendish. "Why, Honey Bee, of course it was nn accident!" Bob stai'Ki intently at her. "Miss Lane's )ifo was in as great danger as mine." 'Lissa smiled a little. "I'ou missed the point, Bob. Please let's go on out." * * * W/1THOUT further word) they moved upward nnd pr sscntly came within the white li^ht of day. First it also was a pinpoint, then grew to become the cave mouth, where Bob had labored to remove the rocks 'Jays ago. It was still early morning and the sun was pouring into tho cliff castle area with great brilliance. "I was never so glad to see anything in all my life!" exclaimed 'Lissa. She ran to the edge and peered down. "And the camp—it looks heavenly, Bob. Oh!" There were sundry other nx- clamations and sighs of relief. The two were, indeed, almost ecstatic with joy. Bob took bolh her hands nnd danced in a circle with her, kid fashion. Then he swun/r her into a close embrace and kissed her, long and Ibor- oughly. Neither of them really looicecl at Honey Bee, so intent on i-uch other were they, or they surely would have observed the wild jealousy thut suffused the Indian girl. The squaw was literally mad, insane. "Let's hurry down," 'Lissa urged, hejppily. "Come on, dear." Bob climbed to the foot of the first ladder, as customary, and waited for her there, his hand held up to assist her. It was, however, quite a long climb down, 20 feet nearly to that first narrow ledge. Caution was essential. 'Lissa remembered the total height there was 600 feet, and it looked 6000. Above on the rim, Honey Bee stood glaring. She was still glaring when 'Lissa stepped onto the ladder. Suddenly the Indian girl saw her chance! All the pent-up fury jji ber came to life. (To Be By Olive Robefts'Barton Santa Clans Is Invention That Survives Because It Adds to Happiness of Race Those who think that Clement Moore invented Santa Claus with his immortal poem, "The Night Before Christmas," should Ret out their encyclopedias nnd look him up—Snnln. I mean. Poor olrl Snntn Clans comes up through history, ten or twelve centuries, in various guises. First, he was n clorgymnn or bishop in tho Orient, so goes the legend.

Origin (if Chimney Entry Iho Dutch had Kriss-Kringlo, and as 1 live at present in Pennsylvania Dutch country, the story goes that right here grew the chimney legend, the broad low chimneys of cnrly settlers inviting a new way of entrance, as burred doors, necessary against Indian invaders, could not bo left unlatched. Clement Moore possibly thought that snow was better going for reindeer than for horses. So ho used Ihp idea. And as winter comes from (he north, so grew tin; legend of the North Pole. Try and change the legend if you will. It cannot be done. When people are satisfied with their fairy tales, they, the tall stories, stick.
