Congress Undertakes A Painful Job If the recommendation of its census committee gets by the House, i-eajjpor- .tionment of congressional representatives will take place in 19-12 on Ihc basis of this year's census. The itlcn of the committee is to pet the thing through before representatives have a chance (o t r et al the census results and find out whether (hey would bo voting themselves right out of office. It's a close-your-eycs-niul-leap proposition, and Chairman Matthew A. Dunn (Dem., Pa.), candidly says that's the only way to get the bill passed—if it's going lo be passed al all. Under any circumstances, it's a k'uod idea to gel the thing over wilh. Ke- apporiionment i.s decreed by the Constitution, and the mailer shouldn't lie neglected just because a few individuals might lose their jobs. . May Day, 1940 There was a lime when the coining of Mny Day brought ;i rflsli of poelry to the head. There was ;i lime when May Day w.tK celebrated by delivering bushels of • flowers to the homes of friends instead of dropping bombs on Ihc doorsteps of strangers. There was ;f time—hut Ihis is I WO. May Day came this year (o a world little enough inclined to listen to Milion's song: ••• . Hail, bounteous May,, that dolli in spire Mirth, and youth, and warm desire ... ' May Day means the breaking up of the ice in I lie Gulf of Bothnia, and Sweden trembles. May Day means better weather in Norway—for (\glHii\(j. May Day means that the western i'rnnt may come alive at any time, or that roads may begin to permit invasion of the Low Countries. To thousands, May Day is a brandished list, symbol of class hatred and revolutionary activity. While the shaking loose of thousands of fellow travelers probably meant .smaller May Day parades in the United Slatcx, those whose faith was not shaken in Finland undoubtedly registered their adherence to the Marxist faith, which so singularly chose the budding sprmp for its own day of demonstration. To others, less militantly inclined, May Day meant (;),J1 ( | i[ e; ,') ln l) ; ,y. But to others, probably to most Americans, May Day was just another dav. marking the end of a long and dreary winter. Yet it is true that in spile of man's attempt (o turn his world into an inferno, the hepatieas dot the hillsides, the spring beauties flood the meadows, and the violets bloom modestly in the secret places of the woods. These serve .silent notice that the rhythms of creation swing onward, impervious to the <|iiarrcls and alarms of men. They arc reassurance that the majestic march of the seasons, the ebb and How of tides, the .heartbeat of the universe, are not to bo interrupted by even Llifi worst turmoils of puny man.

America Al War and the American Press We pointed out the other day ihut even with America al pence, Ibc war is here economically. If war should yet come to Amcrlcii. the consequences to American trade nnd Industry would be a repetition of the misery they went through in the lust decade us a direct result ot American 11:11Uclpnllqn In the World War.. We art: frank to say that one ot the first t" feel wur'.s effects would be the Amerlciin newspaper. Taking the Times llcinlii as un example, this paper prints an average of 11 to ID pages a day iu normal times, .some editions going Into 28 and 32 panes. War mlgln cut that into four pages with no space for advertisements. '['he London Times, leading newspaper of I'Jng- Innrt tcday averages only ciyht pages or less. Other English papers arc smaller. The Paris Solr, with a "dully circulation of two million. Is down lo fcnir pages. So are the other newspapers of Paris and France. The French and English papers ate now being obliged lo retrench still further In newsprint conservation. Most Ameilam newsprint comes from Canada. Newsprint Imports illl ° the United Stales nver- «(!<-' nciirly five billion pounds a. year nnd are valued nt nearly $85.000,000. With Britain al war. the price h> England Is J101.05 |irr ton and ttilug lo $117.50 per ton by July ,1 next, and consumption is being cut down lo conserve \var power claimed needed for military purposes. And •should we' get, into the war, conditions confronting the American newspaper publishing industry would be even worse. \ There Is no doubt that n war •administration, (ollo\viii(i the Allied policies, would clamp do'.'n stringent regulations that would practically :H length destroy not only freedom o( the press but also the chances of a large portion of that press surviving. It would be economically'ruined. What news the survivors would be allowed to print would be officially censored, as it is In lighting countries today, which is why American newspapers and their readers often have . difficulty in presenting and receiving the true picture of current warfare. The American .press, in common \villi other industries, cannot stand America going into war.—Norristown Times Herald.

Jamison's liajid came down and two red dice rolled out on the counter — a deuce awl a five. "Seven," the secretary announced, taking up the dice, passing the cup to Wharlon. Paul shook the dice quickly, rolled tliom clown the counter. Every eye was fixed upon (he bouncing cubes. Sherry held her breath as they came to a stop at last.

"Show it to him," Wharlor. spoke with aloofness, looking out a window. "My name is signet to it, I believe." "Yes, sir, your name is," Willie Bond conceded, "and also 1 see the time-stamp; you dropped this in the box al 2:17." "Well, what of it?" "Plenty, yovmg sir!" Willie Bond spoke sharply. "Jockey Clul vules say the claim must be deposited in the box nt Icasl IS minutes before post time. Pos lime was advertised as 2:30. You were two minutes late — look a Ihc lime stamped on it." * * * PAUL WHAHTON did look; thei swore to himself. "That dan trainer," he said aloud. "Look here," he demanded of the sec retary, "are we going by techni calities on this race Irnrk?" Willie Bond didn't give Ihc off! cial time to speak. He turned 01 Wharlon: "Do we race by ,Iocke> Club rules — or is it every man fo himself? If you don't rccogniz the Jockey Club, maybe the stew ards would like lo know it." "A\v, thunder!" "Thunder yourself — you claim's thrown out. Eight, Mi Secretary?" The latter nodded, said: "Cor reel. Horse goes to the next man. "My winnin' day," the unshaven rainer grinned. "Gimme the or- er for that colt." "Nol so fast, my good man," vVillie Bond protested. "The colt sn't yours-—yel." "Ain't, eh? Didn't the sccre- ary just say il is—we KO by rules 11 this track." He smacked his ips. "And here's $2500 casli- noncy for that colt." He'laid a 'ile of bills on Hie counter. "No doubt excellent currency— nit may I ask, Mr. Secretary," Villic Bond spoke in his stiavest ones, "whether lliis—ah—fellow tas $2500 to his credit with (he facing Association? Has he, Mr. Secretary?" The latter was distinctly an- loyed. He glared over his glasses at the big man in front of him. 'Racing season's just begun—" "Correct," Willie Bond conceded, ."and we've agreed dial Jockey Club rules govern licrc. t'he rules distinclly say"—he waved a fal finger under Hie sec- •etary's long nose—"and sec . if ny memory is correct, 'each person desiring lo make a claim, unless ic shall have such amount lo his credit with the association, musl "irsl dcposil with the association the whole amount of his claim in cash!' "This—ah—fellow hasn't thai much credit on your books; and 1 take it the — ah — fellow didn' deposit $2500 'wilh you, sir, tie- fore the race; else he wouldn't tender Ihe currency now." "One minute, Mr. Bond," the official smiled, tried to speak placating])-. "Generally there's a bit of latitude—-when intentions are known to be good. Usuall> we'll take a man's money after the race." "Say! If you'i'e going to that kind of exception," Pan Wharton exploded, "then you'vi goV to accept my claim. What 1 : two minutes, wlien my intention: iire good?" William Bond stepped back looked straight at the harassed official: "Suppose we lake Ibis t the stewards, ask them whethe or not Jockey Club rules gov crn—" "Please, please!" The sccrclavj had no desire to admit lo th slcu'ards thai !>e could not nil his own bailiwick, lie smile unctiously, nibbed his hands to gether, finished, should .say— in fact I do say, that—ah—ladies gentlemen, all elaJms are disal lowed; the colt remains the p.-op erty of Miss Bond.

She shook free Ihe hand, lanced over her shoulder. 11 was jnl Wharton—an eager look in is eyes. "Sherryl" "Well?" The steel In her manner made im pause-. She spoko again, iiarply: "You tried lo horse." "Sherry, you've got to listen—" Again she shook his hand free. 'urned, saying, "You'll excuse ic." Slie started fowwd the cjtib- ouse. Paul was bcsitle lier—was keep- :ig paco wilh her going up the tens—was talking—she was not icaring a word lie said—she went nlo (ho first vacant box. "Will •on please go away?" she asked. "Sherry, I was trying to protect •our horse. Remember, twice I ii-gcd you not to slart Pepper Boy in a claiming race? You voukln'l listen. So when I earned another man was going lo laim him, I had my trainer put n a claim." Sherry was silent; she stared it him. "Racing's n man's game, Shw- "One-third ot the race horses n America are owned by women—" "And raced by men trainers! There arc only a fistful of girl trainers in the country. This business requires experience, and you simply haven't any, Sherry." "But fortunately my uncle has!" Paul Wharton shrugged. "Don't you understand, Sherry? I was trying to save your colt; I was ioing to give him hack lo you— as one friend to another." So Paul had been-trying to save her colt, not lake Pepper Boy away from her. Sherry's smile returned slowly. "Thanks, Paul," she said, extending her hand. "I didn't understand." "I know, darling." He did not release her hand. "Sherry, won't you give up this racing business, marry me, now." He was almost pleading. "You've had a try at it, and you came through only by sheer Hick. "You know I love you Sherry. We can be married here, have our honeymoon al the Derby, watching Red Soldier win." "Watching Pepper Boy win," Sherry correcled. The haired had gone from her voice. If she married Paul now all lier worries would be over. -No more fretting about bills, no more risking Pepper Boy in claiming races. She could keep on racing.
