By RUTH 1WLLETT Grace Moore knows from experience that it is pretty tough for a singer to climb the success ladder—if there is no one around to do a little helpful boosting. She would like to do her .share of the pushing, and so she is opening a singing school next to her farm in Connecticut. There students who she thinks need only training and u chance will get their training. And when they have it. she'll see to it that they also get a chance. As she puts it. 'Once they're ready for professional life, I'll take a band and see that they get off to a good start." If more succcessful people who have learned the ropes were willing to open doors for ihe young and inexperienced, there wouldn't be so many intelligent, talented young people going to seed for lack of u chance. Not everyone can start a school or g<; about helping in such a direct way. But anyone who has learned how to do his job well has something to offer the young—if he'll just bother to offer it. The new young man who comes into the office could learn so much from one of the older men—if the older man took the trouble to do a little teaching on the side. The girl who has enough brains to hold a job, but not enough "push" to make herself stand out, could be told in half an hour how to "organize." a job hunt—if a successful business woman would take the trouble to tell her. Schools don't do much in the way ol teaching young people how to put themselves across once they have their (mining. But older people, who have found out how, could pass the knowledge along.

By GEORGE ROSS NEW YORK — Echoing the recent election is the hum of activity around what, for lo, these many moons, has been one of the saddest buildings in. town. It's the squat, red brick structure that houses the ancient order of Tammany, once one of the most powerful local political organizations in the land. When Mayor .LaGuardia and his Fusion administration took office some years ago, it was over the "dead' body of the Tammany Tiger. "Tammany Hall is finished," its foes chort- | led, "consumed in the burning wrath j of a long-suffering citizenry." Burned by that wrath, Tammany ly.doubtedly was. But hardly "consumed." For today, like a phoenix arising from the ashes, Tammany is on the march again, and Mayor La- Guardia, no longer in control of the City Council ,is worried about the reforms he has fought for. There is only one fly in the Tammany ointment—Alfred E. Smith—but "the boys" hope that the .forme: governor will not be too harsh. Smart Tiger Stole a March All this happened at the recen election. Guessing wisely that its enemies might relax in an off-yeai election, Tammany sent its thousand. 5 of workers out from house to house dragging the voters down to registei and then to cast their ballots. The results were even more start- liiii; than Tammany had hoped. Of the 21 s-eals in the City Council fourteen, more than enough to override ••• mayoral veto, went to party standbys. . • •-•-'- <~. Alfred E. Smith, Jr., was elected, loo, after his noted father had engaged in a wordy battle over the close count between his son and Louis De Salvio. whose father is Jimmy Kelly, political leader and night club proprietor. 'Ihc elder Smith won and Tammany interpreted his close interest a>- meaning that he will dictate his .sop'.-- action, perhaps even to introducing reform legislation. L<-iik far !\lighty Battle Next year is a presidential year and Tammany may be singing another tune completely, but in the meantime district leaders are marching in the front door of Tammany Hall instead uf slinking around the side, and ihe Tammany office-holders are singing a new version of the parable oi the seven fat years following the seven lean years. Tammany thinks it can rivet its hold on the city treasury—a $650,000,000 affair—again this year. The Little Flower thinks not. The clash promise.'-- lo shake the city. - . ^»»«k»— Suspicious of Leak Man (getting a shave I— "B'arber, will you please .give me a glass of water?" Barber—"What is the matter? Something in jour throat?" Man—"No--I want lo see if my neck leaks." What falls? First, all the territorial objectives ' over which the two countries life- gotiated fruitlessly for weeks before Russia struck—the Aaland Islflhds, Hango Head, the rest of the Karelian Isthmus north of Leningrad, and the Felsamo area. That means just about absolute control of the Gulf of Finland and Arctic shipping lanes. < Second, she'll get a rugged, rocky ' land of 147,700 square miles (about as big as Montana) and 3.835,000 sturdy, healthy subjects. ' - ' Independent 20 Years As an independent republic, Finland -' is only 20 years old. Her path in ; history has been stormy. After nearly a centui-y of strife, Finland was ' Christianized and conquered by thb , Swsdes in 1157, crushed by Peter the Great, of Russia, in 1710; divided between Russia and Sweden in 1721'; overrun by Russians again in 1809, i gaining the status of a semi-independent duchy. ' i ; In 1899, Nicholas II started an af- • tempt at Husatftcation. Oppressive measures imposed by Russia early in the World war got the Finn's dander up. They became pro-German and declared their independence (in Dscember, 1917. There followed blooidy strife with the Reds. German, troops helped Finland drive them out. ,Ih' July, 1919, Finland became independent. " f l Nearly a tenth of the nation's area is lakes—€0,000 of them. The land is rough, full of granite boulders, covered with forests of spruce and pine, which give Finland an abundance of material for wood products, notably paper. 4 Less than a tenth of Finland is arable, yet three-quarter of the population is rural. Farmers raise rye, oats, barley and potatoes and forage crops for the dairying industry. Other Finnish industries are iron and mechanical works', texvtiles, leather, rubber, fur ad ceramics. ,, Finland, long has been a leader iin the co-operative movement. Today, 25 per cent of the retail and 60 pier cent of the wholesale trade is carried on by co-ops. Finland's Glories Finland is the only nation that has kept up payments on its war debt. It produced that marvel of hvuna speed, Paavo Nurmi, the runner. It gave the world one of the great modern composers, Jan Sibelius: One of its authors, Frans Eemil Silanpaa, has just been awarded the Nobel prize. Helsinki, Finland's capital, was notable to tourists because nowhere could they find any memorials -to war heroes or to old battles. Yet among the peaceloving Finns every citizen has his gun in his house, and all, from professor to peasant, have had to take at least one course in marksmanship. Some Consolation Chairman: Will the staff please be quiet! I haven't heard a word I've said since I called the meeting to order. Voice from the rear: That's all right. You're not missing much.
