The Star disclaim* .teapomibllity for the safe-keeping or return of any unsolicited manuscript*- The Hines Trial Should Be a Citizen's Eye-Opener T HE New York trial of Tammany District Leader Jimmy Hi"es is certainly providing 1 a first-rate elementary course in civics, for the enlightenment of the ordinary citizen. Whether Mr. Hines is acquitted or convicted, this trial is painting- in unmistakable colors the classic picture of political corruption in its relation to organized crime. If your memory goes back a few years, you will recall that until the advent of Mayor LaGuardia, Tammany was ' supreme on Manhattan. At the same time, the big shot of the underworld was the late Dutch Schultz. According to the evidence presented so far, Schultz struck a bargain with certain Tammany bigwigs. Under this bargain. Schultz was to operate with a minimum of police interference. In return, the political higher- tips were to get a slice of his profits. But the benefits to the two parties did not stop there ; for Schultz was able to use this new alliance to force his rivals out of business, while his henchmen provided thousands of illegal votes and did a good deal of useful strong-arm work for the political machine on election days. * * * I T WOULD be a good thing if every city dweller i" the land could study that testimony. For the picture which it paints si an authentic picture, regardless of the outcome of this particular trial. That is, that is the kind of set-up we get in our big cities whenever an unscruplous political organization has charge of the city government. The alliance between crime and politics, alleged i n this trial, is a commonplace of American civic life. Once you get that fact firmly fixed in your mind, you may find some of the outlandish history of our post-war years easier to understand. You can see, for instance, why "known criminals" were so mysteriously hard to catch. .* * * THERE never has been any mystery about it, really. But 1^ we have a strange capacity for shutting our eyes to the facts of life, and we usually exercise it to the full where the crime-politics alliance is concerned. If the New York trial will compel us to realize that that alliance is always, without exception, somewhere present in connection with the modern phenomenon of largescale commercialized crime, it will be one of the most useful events of the year. A Cabinet Feud In the Making A Strange Combination of Primary Winners •THE inevitable conflict between the nationalistic agricultural , 1 policy of Secretary Wallace and Secretary of State Hull's -ideal of an expanding international trade is tending toward a climax. Secretary of State Hull is bitterly opposed to the use of export subsidies to force our agricultural products into the world warket. Secretary Wallace has announced that he plans to use the export subsidy to pump 100,000,000 bushels of our wheat surplus into the foreign market this year. If the plan works for wheat it is reasonable to believe he will try it with reference to cotton and perhaps meat products and corn. Secretary Hull is tryi n g to head him off. Assistant Sec- retary of State Sayre recently made a strong speech against the use of the export subsidy. Since the wheat subsidy proposal came prominently into the news. Lynn R. Edminster, economic analyst of the State Department, has issued a statement warning that the use of this device will only add to our troubles. * * * DECAUSE it ignores (said he) the fundamental propo- D sition that in order for a country to sell more it must buy more—that trade cannot operate on a one-way street—it is basically an unsound policy and fore-doomed to cost the "ation more than any gains it can possibly bring. Applied to agricultural and other natural products, . can mean only the virtual giving away to foreign countries ol our "atural resources and our soil fertility, at the expense of our own consumers and taxpayers. Without the promise of good results on its own account, i would, on the other hand, weaken the efforts which are being roads, through the trade-agreements program, to rebuild ou foreign trade on sound principles. It is not the way out of th cotton growers, the wheat growers or a n y other major cro] of producers. * * * THE conflict of policy between the two Cabinet members i 1 all the more interesting because each is a possible con ,>:nder for the Democratic nomination for President in 1940 Secretary Wallace is using the utmost tact in his move for th . "--:e of the export subsidy. Several conferences o n the subject have hfen held between members of his department and the '• State Denartment. Hft has nmnhasized that the wheat to be - exported bv the subsidy method will be limited to an amount whic hmay be conservatively regarded as our normal share of the foreign market. President Roosevelt has indicated his approval of the idea, but it remains to be seen whether Secretary Hull will acqui- e«ce. Five years ago he made such an issue between his own views of foreign trade and the nationalistic ideas of Raymond - Molev a« virutally to forcp Moiev's retirement from the Brain Trust! So vulnerable is Mr. Wallace that Secretary Hull can . make it excruciatingly embarrassing, if not politically dis- • astrous, for him, if he so chooses.— St. Louis Post-Dispatch. $30 EVERY THURSDAY A Book * Day By Bruet Catto* What Little Spies Are Made Of The spy books hnve been rolling off the presses with regularity of Into, nncl a inelcilramatic lot they've been for the most part.

Today it is believed that most infec- ons with tuberculosis come from ther human beings and gain entrance ito the human body by way of the ose, throat, mouth and lungs. The asteurization and boiling of milk ave practcially eliminated the causa- on of tuberculosis by the taking of oods containing tuberculosis germs. The relatively high incidence of eaths from tuberculosis among young fants has given rise to the idea that abies do not resist the disease as well the small infant in contact with an older person who has tuberculosis does not have the same opportunity of evading repeated and large doses of living germs coming into the body as does the older child or gr,own-up. In determining whether or not the child has the disease, certain tests are now relied on by physicians. The physician will first want to know whether or not the child has been exposed to tuberculosis, and he will want to examine the parents or other persons who are in contact with the child, to determine whether or not any of them have an open case of this disease. The weight curve is studied in order to determine whether or not there has the general condition of the child, with the appearance of symptoms of irritability, fatigue, lack of appetite, frclfulness, and other manifestations that the child is not well. There may be seme fever, and fever in a child should always be regarded with suspicion. A physician 01 great experience can frequently determine merely from the appearance of the child that something definite is wrong. In the case of tuberculosis he is inclined to take into must be remembered, however, that! or a continuous loss of weight.

U CHAPTER VII NCLE SANDY was having his troubles with the colt. "You, Linda, keep back," he warned sharply, as he led Golden Toy alongside the fence—keeping away from whizzing motors on the highway. "Uncle Sandy, let me get a van," Linda begged, but he became indignant at the idea. "Ain't no colt I can't handle, if, I do be 66. You keep away." With his hands on a horse's rope, he was different from the seemingly weak old fellow who had chosen his words carefully the night before. N?w, he spoke strongly the jargon of the 'tracks. Norman met them at the gate, took the halter-rope grudgingly. "This here colt, he be all a-sweat- in'," Norman complained, when they reached the bai-n. "So'd you be, if you'd been a-dodgin' those dad-blamed cars," Uncle Sandy said. "Take this here dry cloth," he threw a rubbing cloth at Norman, "and you rub that colt till he's all dry— and the cloth's all wet. Bone him good, or I'll baste you." Norman went to work surily. "What's come over Norman?" Linda asked, when they were in the house. Then, with an amused start, she noted that she, too, was lapsing into the colloquial. "That fool Norman?" Uncle about three steeplechases in the world that's worth runnin" after. It's a rich man's game. Every time you send a horse out, chances are he'll come a cropper and bust his neck at a fence. We're going after the Jockey Club Stakes—" "I must fte about supper," Linda interrupted and went inside, j money." "Not exactly. They were detective yarns—but wait! They may have been terrible, but the money was good." it is, stretching away on into the dark years, and secretly you know you'll never be any better and there will be no release. Just how long, I am curious to know, would your nerves last? Your health? Your disposition and faith? Comparisons aren't fair, of course, for children have an adaptability we oldsters lack; besires they don't take their callings-down too seriously. And there can be no parallel between earn- and and working for a mere ideal, which is what school is. School and education are vague things to a child. In spite of his natural curiosity to learn facts, he wonders why it is necessary to study declension and parsing. I have said before that the majority of children accept school rather well, but this is because they prefer occu- don't appreciate. Here is an idea, however. Sometimes a boy who has lost his grip on school, will prick up his ears if he knows we are interested rather than critical. Instead of nagging at him, we might try another way—that is, to be on his side of the fence instead of shouting over the stile. We could take his books and find out what his subjects are, and put them in a new light. By a little talking, reading from subject by preparing the poorest story he could think of. Titled "Treachery on the Sea, or Back From the Depths," it was crudely phrased, misspelled throughout, and poorly typed. It was submitted, in turn, to several fake agents und writing schools. All hastened to assure him that it was u powerful and finely-wrought tale with excellent possibilities for sale to the movies. But it would require a bit of expert adaptation to the peculiar technical requirements of the screen, und these changes would be made for a fee of, say $50. That writer, by the way, was waylaid and badly beaten by a couple of plug-uglies who told him to Iny off his racket investigation.

"But, Linda, you don't know the man's reputation: for the lust year a Pennsylvania woman has been keeping him, while he's been riding her jumpers. Before that it was another woman—" "I don't believe a word of it!" Linda dared. "But it's the truth, I tell you." She was getting excited. "Well, I don]t believe a word you say, but—at least he never let an old, sick man be forced to pay his last dollar, on a debt he wasn't morally obligated for." For a moment Radford didn't answer. Then he looked up. She saw him grin in the moonlight. "Did you say sick, Linda?" His question, his grinning face, disconcerted her. "Good night, Linda," he said, rising. He turned from her, went down the path to his car, drove quickly off. After a long while Linda went inside. Her uncle was reaching down to pick up the long envelope which Bruce Radford had given HOLLYWOOD.—Classifying various Hollywood talent enterprises under the headings of "legitimate," "doubtful," and "rackets" is a job that local authorities don't relish. Testimony is difficult 10 obtain, convictions are rare, sentences light. Seldom are there such sensational indignities as when, a few months ago, girls were paraded in the nude before fake talent scouts and "studio executives." Larry Crosby, brother und business manager of Bing, brought the ring to police attention when he learned that a solicitor for it was claiming to be connected with Crosby. One man was arrested but was released when girls and their parents refused to appear to aid in the prosecution. One of the meanest of rackets, periodically revived and widely practiced, especially around Chicago and in the east, is the selling of fake screen tests. These often are made without film in the cameras, and the subjects usually are children. The swindlers take whatever the mothers can p from $5 to ?50. Sometimes they bolstei their sales talk with promises of parts in pictures. Arid sometimes they're caught. Four self-styled executives of an imaginary All-Star Productions Corp. were jailed for selling roles in u hypothetical 5100,000 all-juvenile feuture." The major studios of Hollywood which prefer to make their own discoveries and do their own training, try to discourage talent schools and mos of the local "little theaters" whic! charge for instruction and roles ii plays. The Main Thing You Lvurn Is No,t to Do It Again Studio talent scouts do not uttund performances it gyp theaters, and studio casting directors are cold toward graduates of most of the movie schools. Almost all of these enterprises are conducted within the law. Not since 929 and the dissolution of Cinema VIovie Schools, Inc., has there been n conviction. That company's advertis- ng claimed that it had made the ca- eers of Mary Pickofrd, Douglas Fair- janks, Colleen Moore and several other tars. Testimony revealed that one ;irl student had been swindled of 13.'!5 in a short time. The head of the school received a six month's jail sen- ence and a $500 fine. A few fake story brokers and scenario-writing schools generally are lourishing somewhere. Theirs is a precarious existence because they use he mails and thus are vulnerable to federal charges. A couple of years ago a writer for a national magazine gathered some first- land material for an article on the they make no promises They charge tuition for instruction, and then keep right on charging. The first charge is $25 for makeup materials. For that much money you can buy enough grease paint to smear the faces of every ham in Hollywood. Next, on aspirant is told that he or she really needs a few private lessons. These are ?10 each. Periodically, plays are presented, and parts in these plays are sold to the students. Many a hopeful has parted with a hard-saved $50 for the doubtful privilege of emoting in a leading role for one evening before an audience of relatives and stooges.

Much more important, however, is the use of the tuberculin test, which should be made in every case when there is a suspicion of tuberculosis. The use of this test will show some definite response within three to six weeks after a child has been infected with the disease. Equally important is the use of the X-ray, to determine whether or not there are any definite changes in the lungs. There arc other tests to be made particularly those relating to the blood, but concerning these the individual physician must make the determination. '1 didn't break a date!
