RAISING A FAMILY Little Cirls Sometimes Get Fed Up Being Little Ladies Dear Mrs. Worn: 1 think your little girl is simply protesting agninst too much goody- goudy business. Now please don't be offended. I know you are learning over backward to be a grand mother. But your letter has things between the lines. You are too anxious lo make her perfect. And then, as you say, your own mother and your husband's sister also live within arrow shot. They're trying, too. All working out their ideas of making Bunnv into a perfect little lady. All of this is simply splendid, and Bunny should be trained just as you are trying lo train her. But it's hard on a child lo be the object of such sol- icilude on everyone's part. I think .she is just fed up a bit with Aunties Bea saying. "Why. darling, what have you been doing? Your curls are all mussed and your bow down under your ear." And Grandma's saying, "Bunny, dear, you left some of your scraps on the floor yesterday.' Or you, with no other child to concentrate on. saying. "Don't yell -Hello' til people, dear. Say. "How do you Three or four people rill bending their anxiety and affection on one little child is a trifle overpowering. And I think that Bunny would just like to be Bunny, somelmies. without having her attention called to every little natural mistake she 'makes. There is something bottled up inside her that has to get out. She wants to be herself occasionally. I believe that if you would give her a free time to piny, say an hour or two out in the yard.,with a friend or even by herself, and let her do almost what she pleases, she would find it a relief. And when she begins something like making asand house, or watering the flowers, let her do it her own way without interference. I am sure you will find her more ready to listen. And, by the way, gently pass on the word lo those over-anxious relatives that praise instead of too much reproof works wonders with a child. Yours Sincerely. Olive Roberts Barton.

Christine objected. "Uill—" littl nlmost. at once he was lost to .sight in tho crowd. An area of the walk had been roped niT, and men in unilomi tvere herding; Hie rrou-d beyond 1lu> ropes—Bill among them. It iliil not occur to Christine that the ropes meant her, too; and no one sxvmed lo pay any attention 1o her as she edged along the, railing just behind two officers who were di routing powerful flnshlj^'lils down into the .studio booth. . . . For the center of the excitement appeared lo be below the level of the walk. Suddenly n voice -from the edge of the crowd called out, "There's that girl 1 was lolling you abotil, Sergeant—right behind you. She was drawing pictures down there Ibis afternoon; and this evening i seen her .slip down again and come out reading a letter of .something." Glancing toward the .source of the voice, Christine saw that it was the flashily dressed proprielur of the shooling gallery across the Boardwalk. "Stick around, Miss," the sergeant directed, turning upon her. "We'll want to talk to every one who works about here." "Why, of course." Christine tried to make her voice crisply casual. She peered down into the booth, but she could not .see much nt lir.-l except uniformed backs. Finally, as one- of the policemen moved, .••he saw a man in n white coat bending over a figure on the concrete bench at the rear of The booth. Something unpleasantly rigid about Ihe coat-sleeved arm and gloved hand at the edge of the bench convinced Christine that she didn't care to see any more. An officer climbed into the booth from (he beach below and reported to a man in plain clothes who seemed to be in charge, "There's (lie marks of two rowboats in the sand down there, Inspector Parsons—both made .since high tide. One of the boats is there yet. No one seems to know anything about it." "Any—signs in the boat?" "N;>, .sir; but there's been a scuffle down there, and there's two sets of J'ootynnts coming up this way—only you lose 'em when they come lo the dry sand. . . . And the buys are bringing in one of Iliem beachcombers. He tried to beat it. when he seen us; and lie tried to throw this away after we caught him." A small, object changed hands'. "Well, Doc, what, do you make of it?" The inspector turned to the man in (he white coat. ''Well," the doctor said, "(he victim had been heavily and repeatedly drugged. There are marks of a hypodermic needle. But death was caused by a wound from a slender, pointed weapon. . . . Found anything; that answers that description'.'" "We haven't found any weapon of any sort here." 'T'HE doctor said something that Christine missed; but which i the inspector seemed to find of peculiar interest. "How long ago?" he demanded sharply. "I can't be ontirely sure—-but before rigor mortis set in. That might be two hours ago. Perhaps a litlle earlier." Christine glanced at her watch. One-thirty. It had been almost 11:30 when she and Bill had come I this way before. At this moment Bill loomed al her side. "Soi-r.i," he murmured. "But breaking out of jail is easy compared with breaking in here. . . . Say, this must be a Page One event! Half the Surf City police force Keetns lo be here—not to .'•peak of tin- press," he added as several llashlighls went off near at hand. "Hey—you!" The sergeant who bad detained Christine turned belligerently. "Who told you you bad any business \n here?" "My own chivalrous sold, officer," Bill answered smoothly. "This young lady is in my care. I'm taking her home." "Yi.u are not. We want to talk to her." At this moment several newcomers were admitted through Ihe ropes: the man who had identified Christine, a newsboy, a waitress whom Christine had seen in the ice-cream stand next door, the resplendent doorman from the hotel across the Boardwalk, and finally—looking more than usually apologetic and helpless—Mr. Wilmet. "My dear Miss Nevin!" Mr. Wil- inet cried. "This is no place for you." "It would be nice," Chrisline said, "if you could persuade the serceant to take that view." "Ollicer." Mr. \Vilmel protested in his ineffectual way, "you surely don't need this young lady. I can evasion, the quickest way to get him. His lieutenant. R, Emmet O.Malley, nccu.sed of bribery in a huge insurance rate fraud, is in IjeaverWorth with "the boss." F,. Mont Reily, Pendergssl's Republican crony, is under indictment for forging payrolls. H.

Southern saicl the gamblers look from Kansas citizens and their guests every year. Kansas City .showed the G-men and their allies what can be done when they got at the Big-Fix. It sharpened their taste for a bigger and better shot at the underworld. And they're .starting off with bepke for bait. Next—The Pyramid r»f Crime. loll you all about her. She is Miss Grace Nevin, a very accomplished artist who is in my employ." Now he has ruined it, Chrisline thought. Because sooner or later they'll have to know my real name. "I own this concession," Mr. Wilmet was going on; "and I must say it's a terrible shock to have a tiling like this happen here just as business was picking up." "Well, now," the oliicer said with heavy sarcasm, "it's just too bad Ihe poor lady couldn't have planned to get herself murdered somewhere else." Lady! Christine thought blankly—and realized for the first time that the dark-clad figure she had glimpsed so sketchily miglu just as well have been a woman's as a man's. * He IT was at this point that a police ' ambulance rumbled down the Boardwalk and stopped. Men clambered down, lilted out a stretcher, and tramped down the ramp into the booth. Inspector Parsons' bead emerged above? the railing. "Now, Sergeant," he said, "before they move her, we'll find out whether any of these people know anything about her. . . . Down here, please, all of you." The newsboy was first to file by (he. stretcher; then, in order, went the doorman, the waitress, the man from the shooting gallery, Mr. Wilmet, and Christine—closely followed by Bill Vardley. Christine kept her eyes averted from the- stretcher until her own turn came. When at length she stood beside the body and glanced down, a violent fit of shivering wrenched her; and she turned abruptly way. One of the officers hastily opened the camp stool and eased her down upon it. "Maybe I can help you, Inspector—" Bill Yardley spoke unexpectedly, his face paper white. ••'Flu's is Mrs. Emma Talbert, who owns a country home out Beach- monl way." "I was aware of that. We iden- tilied her by papers in her purse. . . . Now," the inspector went on, glancing around, "how many of you were at your regular places of work between—say 11:15 and 1:30?" The waitress had been, and (lie proprietor of the shooting gallery. Mr. Wilmet was nervously voluble about the fact that he had been attending a moving picture. Chrisline, shivering unbearably in spite of the. warmfh of the night air, shook her head mutely. The resplendent; doorman had returned lo duty at precisely 11:30. Now he was .staring at Christina with fascinated attention. (To Be Continued) a matter of fact, Lemke is not ci'eux ex machina" world. Right now he's just so much bait— i> big. fat, juicy lump of bait in a trap set clear across the country. Jaws of the master trap stand agape in many cities, perhaps among threm Cleveland. Chicago. New Orleans, Boston. Miami, Philadelphia, San Francisco. A New York federal grand jury has set itself up as a cleaning house of crime armed with a hand-truck load of the encyclopedia of the underworld, sent up from Washington. Anybody in the underworld iiny- where in the counti-y who has ever done business with Buehalter is u marked man. Anybody who gives him aid or comfort along the underground railroad of crime is in danger. For the FBI is waiting to spring the trap, not on Buehalter alone, but the men who are IN on big-time crime anywhere. They want crooked lawyers, politicians, bail bondsmen—anybody who lives an outwardly respectable life, but who protects crime. Ask J. Edgar Hoover about, il. as '1 did the other day, and he'll tell you. only he'll use the dictionary word for Ihe Big-Fix, "corruption." "The main-dies which lawlessness inoculates into the social order will rot the foundations of our nation." said the head G-man. "The worst of these is corruption. Corruption begets corruption. Without it, organized crime could not exist." The Kansas City Mnssocre Kansas City was one opening wedge for the nation-wide drive. It took a long time to drive that wedge. For years, the G-men knew something was rotten in Kansas City. Buck in 1933 three big-time hoodlums tried to rescue Bank Robber Frank Nash irom several officers of the law, and scmured the annals of crime with the notorious Kansas City massacre. Four officers and Nash were murdered right in front of the Union Station. But local crime is no concern of the FBI. unless some federal law is violated. So J. Edgar Hoover and his G-men bided their time. On the morning of December 14, 1!I3G, Federal Judge Albert L. Reeves handed them golden opportunity on a silver platter. "Find out who tampered with the votes of citizens in the last national election," was the gist of his order to the federal grand jury and the G- men. Hoover was primed and waiting. He moved in a truckload of scientific apparatus <— spectroscopes, microscopes, and the like—and the men who knew how to use it. Tom Pendergast's henchmen must have laughed. Im- agimc trying to jail anybody with a lot ol fancy gadgets! But those gadgets did their work. They found fraudulent ballots. They found the latene finger prints of Pendergast henchmen on those ballots. They threw the fingerprints on a screen in federal court. Witness began to talk. At last the Big-Fix waa on the way olt. Late last year Ihe last of 256 election fixers were sentenced in federal court. The Summary Now Look what's happened since: Tom Pendergasl is a number in Leavenworlh. convicted of income tax Elroy. Pendr-rgast's city manager, is under indictment for embezzlement of public funds. Angelo Donnici. Pemiergast ward heeler, the "mayor of ninth street," has been convicted with 58 others of running a $12,000,000-a-year narcotic ring, supplying the whole southwest.

The Leading Dniggiai "We've Got It" PHONE 62 Motorcycle Delivery Notice to City Subscribers The Hope Slav maintains 14 newspaper carrier boys, opera! ins on what is known as the l.itile Merchant Plan. Under 1his plan, the 14 newsboys purchase from Hope Star their papers at the rate oi' 10 cents per week The carrier then collects 15 cents per week from his customers. Thus the carrier boys earn 5 cents per week from each customer. The more customers a boy lias the greater his profits are per week. The Star requires each boy to pay for his papers every Saturday. When customers fail to pay the carrier boy each Saturday this causes the. carrier to become oiit-of- balance— because lie depends entirely upon his colled ions for his ninninfi' capital and profit. Pay your carrier boy regular each Saturday. He will not be able to carry-on unless you do. lie will lose 10 cents per week on each customer who fails to pay. Some subscribers have become customers diirinjv the middle part of the week, causing "pay-day" to the carrier to fall in the middle of each week. The Star is asking each carrier boy to adjust this difference with the subscriber in order that all collections fall due every Saturday, thus enabling the boy to complete his collections every Saturday and to pay for his papers each Saturday. Hope Star carrier boys learn the essentials of salesmanship. of bookkeeping and credit. In them is instilled the proper appreciation of honesty, of promptness, of courtesy, of industry, of thrift, of courage and service- Give your carrier a welcome when calls.. Help him by paying each Saturday. Hope Star
