Some of then- stood four ami five deep at the grocery demanding 10 and 20 pound sacks of sugar. But, .says the Department of Agriculture, this country hns a huge sugar surplus. There's no need for a price rise. Moreover there are surpluses of most major foods. That's different from 1914. Then tb war broke on an unsuspecting world This is a tailored-made war, in th making for three years or more—righ down tu food supplies. Our Own Carry-Overs The world has huge surpluses o wheat and sugar, smaller ones in othe foods, and the warring countries arc supposed to have laid up big reserves Our fi>od carry-overs for next yea include 300 million bushels of whca and 250 million pounds of food fats. There arc other changes since 191 and several "It's." There's Ihe diet change. Back in T we were incat-and-potato people. Now food chemists have taught us s much about vitamins and calories tha our diet spreads over a wider range of foods. The whole world won't be demanding meat at once. There's the change in farming. In 1914-18 the farmers jumped the siz and number of farms to meet ex peeled demands—and in the peak yea of 1920 we were supplying Europe 5 per cent of her food. Our farms hav never shrunk to the pre-1914 levc! H should be easier this time to ex panel acreage to meet peak demands To Keep Prices Down There's our own jealously guarde 'ood plan, if worst comes to wors t's part of the war plan which ha jet'ii worked on since 1920. It include i system of rationing that could b nil into effect immediately. But it such an unpleasant idea that officia iuish-hush it. And anyway, the on] -atiuning in 191-1-18 was voluntary. There's Ihe new war resource joard. already at work, to soften th econeimic shock that war always bring even lu peaceful countries. That ha .1 food division to meet profiteering. .Remember how the old food admin istratiem affected prices? Take flour. In the last peace year is cost $8.75 a barrel. By May, 1917, it was up to $17. Then the food administration was organized. By Fcburary, 1918, flour had dropped to $10.50 a barrel. There's the change in European buying war supplies.

Dan "VfARIAN WHS hurt and angry and, more than that, frightened. She asked herself rebelliously, "Must one go through life being frightened? First you're afraid of being poor, you do something about that and then you're afraid of losing your job. Then you're afraid of—olhcr things— and finally you are, losing your husband and it's a different kind of fear, hollow and helpless." They spent the evening as usual, on the shoulder. Dan read and played a few games of solitaire. He wandered restlessly about the apartment and eventually crossed the hall to Dolly's door. Lying on the davenport With is growing." damp, pungent pads over her eyes, Marian Indulged in an orgy of self pity. The old, dog-cared query presented itself to her. "What had she done to deserve this? Behind her lay conscientious effort and well-placed energy Through circumstances, circumstances for which Dan was responsible, she had been cheated of a normal, happy life. She had been denied all the things which belong to a woman by right. Protection, easy living, pride in hei man, security—most of all, security. And now that she h.ad adjusted her life to the circumstances, i was only to learn that she had defeated her purpose all along the line. The least Dan could do was to show appreciation for her endeavor. The least he could do was to be loving and sympathetic. She had been horrid the night before, she admitted it. But did not all married couples quarrel on occasion? Hadn't she asked Dan to forgive her? Hadn't she ignored his childish behavior in stamping out of the apartment? Hadn't she, like a silly fool, asked him to kiss iicrr And had he done so? No, he had not. For a moment her injured feelings were forgotten in. a longing for Dan's kiss. She loved the feel of his mouth on hers, his kiss had never lost its thrill for her. Once she had said, touching his lips with her fingertips, "I love your mouth, Dan—nice and hard and tender. I hate men with soft lips." Dan had laughed, holding her close. "Ah-h—so you are a connoisseur of kisses. Are you making a collection, by any chance?" And she, brushing his cheek with her lips, had teased, "I get around a little." was when the e.-liurt of their married life had many ligh spots, when even the low ones held contentment und love, Marian removed the eye pads and across the hall.

More ell'orl, more wasted energy. "Sounds exciting," she said indifferently. "He has asked Pete Thorpe and his new wife." "Oh, really? I'll, be glad to meet her." "He knew that Pete and Dan were friends and he's been wanting to show the bride and groom. a little courtesy beca'usc Julie was his secretary before her marriage." "1-Irn-m—it's a .small world," Marian mused. "Has she quit her job?" "Oh, yes. Randy says she is the domestic type. Anyway, lie clocavl very logical. Randy says If all the women, especially married women, would drop out of business, thousands of jobs would be available for men. The old men, who have been shoved out, could run elevators, do the filing and accounting in offices, lots of things like that." Marian laughed scornfully, "The employers would like that, A lot of doddering old men—" Dolly ignored the interruption nd continued. "If all the married vomen's jobs were vacated there vould be a shortage of help. Capable men with poor positions vould be moved up to better ones. Micy'd make more money, their 'ylhers would be put back on (ho jayroll, and the women would bu jrovidcd for." "And how," Marian said inelegantly. "It's an idea, Marian."

Her mounting anger crept into Marian's voice "I didn't think Randy was like that, narrow-minded and .smug still playing with the. idea that it's a man's world." Marian seemcc to be forced constantly to defenr herself. "Women have a place of then own," Dolly said gently. "Randj thinks it's a very important place.' Marian flounced angrily.

This with a baleful glance at Dan who did not. appear to be listening. Do you really want me to tell you, Marian?" Dolly asked, "or shall we change the subject?" "O[ course I want you to toll me. I hope I'm big enough to see both sides of a question." "Well—he says there wouldn't bo married women dependent upon themselves if the men were allowed to do the earning." "That's absurd." "I don't think lor you. Let's talk about what wo arc going to wear tomorrow night." Dan said' amusedly, "I have a nifty gray suit. It's left over from last year but, with a few new accessories, a tie, perhaps a gray feather for my hat—I should look pretty nice." Marian worried her lower lip, Dolly laughed.

Dolly decided on a black suit and frilly blouse. She frowned. "My hat is pretty awful. I've looked and looked for a new one. They're so fun-ney this fall." "You always look good to me," Dan rumbled from behind the paper. Marian added generously, "And you evidently look good to Randy." Two little stars flickered in Dolly's blue eyes. "I want him to like me," she said wistfully, adding, with a nod of her yellow head, "But I mustn't let him know it." It sounds • (To Be Continued) H. Cin-iiyan. Unrldi,- Siuu'-l- iMe-Larty.

The slightest residue remaining in Committee reports out a bill, an dthc committee will not be ready to do that for several days. So far party eaders are following the President's request that action be confined to this one issue; -which means that for the noment the two houses haven't anything to do. How long this slate will last is an open question, of course. Meanwhile, great many of the legislators who hurried here for the opening session have gone back to their homes again. This is especially true on the house siele. That body's plan is to convene once every three days as a formality and then recess without doing any business. Many congress'm'cn can see no special point in sticking around just for that. Congressmen On the Spot A lot of (hem feel that they arc more or leas on the spot, though. A, one middle-western congressman expressed it: "The people back in my district arc all steamed up about this emergency and they figure I'm down here at critical time to help save the country. So if I go back home now they'll think 'm lying down on the job. But what earthly good would 1 be doing by laying here, as long as the house isn't doing any business?" retai'y wanted tu know just why tin's statesmen in those cuimtries to decide that their war aims had been auhicvcd. Another woman came to (own with Ihe proposition that a cuminitlee of 10 ur 15 American mothers he chosen to make a peace tour of Europe. 11 was her idea that those mothers try (he chancelleries first and make a direct appeal for peace. If that didn't work— and she admitted it probably wouldn't —she wuukl have (hem set right out for the battlefields and put in their appearance a'm'id the .shut and shell. The general idea seemed tu be that when they all gut killed the world would hp j the cockpit will start blisters on the pilot unless he is willing to fly in a gas-proof suit. That is uncomfortable. Such suits are airtight. Taken to a hospital a soldier is put to bed. The little blisters are drained so the juice won't touch him. Caught in lime—before the stuff gets out of hand—the effects can be cured, and the soldier put back in the dugouts. And the gas isn't mustard at all. H just smells like it, and looks like it. Uncle Sam knows where he can get a lot of it. STUDIO COUCHES Mure than just a couch—a full, comfortable sized bed when opened. Jn attractive designs and colorings (1ml will uelel lo your liviug room. Reasonably Priced HOPE HARDWARE CO A number of congresb'm'en have beg;ed reporters not to publish the fact that they were leaving Washington, ;o that constituents wouldn't accuse them of running out on a crisis. The mere fact that congress has come oack into session has helped the at- nospherc down here. Until congress returned, the general fatalistic assumption that "we're inevitably going to get into this war no matter how hard we try to stay out of it" was so thick in Washington you could citf it with a knife. Congress is so definitely in a non-warlike mood that that sort of talk has greatly subsided. This, any way you look at it, is an encouraging development. Amateurs Present Crisis Solutions While congress waits for something definite to work on, all sorts of vol- unteors are coming forward to help get the- world out of its crisis. One woman called the office of a leading isolationist senator and said she was willing to sacrifice herself to restore peace. Years ago, she said, she had offered the state of Massachu- sets to let it electrocute her in place of Sacco and Vanzetti. Massachusetts had turned her down; but now she was willing to let herself be burned at the stake, in public, if England, France and Germany would call the war off .shocked into calling the war off.
