The Star disclaims eesponibUlty tot the safe-keeping or return of any unsolicited manuscript*Ethiopia Keeps on Beiny Difficult A FEW years ago the poverty-stricken, land-htmgary people of Italy set out to get a break for themselves by taking . over .the rich lands of Ethiopia. Obviously they needed a break of some kind. Italy is full of mountains and rocks—and some 42 million people. The ordinary Italian works hard and doesn't get any too much to eat; no wonder he went for it when someone'told him that there were fat farm lands and general riches to be had for the taking down in Africa. So there was a war, and peace-loving folk on this side of the water took what comfort they could in the reflection that when the shooting and the killing stopped, things at least would be a little better for the common people of Italy. But now it begins to look as if these Italians ha'd bought a.gold brick. * * * ;A DISPATCH from Rome to a New York newspaper reveals £* that the Italian government has given up its plans for the colonization of Ethiopia—for the time being, at any rate. ^n the first place, the country isn't fully pacified yet. It wont be pacified until the natives have been secured in the possession of their own lands—and there happens to be about twice as many of these natives as the Italian high command had figured. In addition, the riches that Ethiopia possesses aren't the kind that can-be gathered quickly. General Attilio Teruzzi, undersecretary for Italian Africa, remarks that it will be years before the country can be made ready for colonization. ^ So the colonization campaign is off, and the government is trying to get the people to think about colonizing Libya instead. _ Which leaves the ordinary Italian who paid for the war sitting right back of the eight-ball, as nearly as it can be figured out from this distance. * * * I T'S' easy to be wise after the fact, of course. But it doesn't hurt to point out that that sort of thing is what a nation inevitably lets itself in for, when it gives up trying to thing and turns all its problems over to a military dictator to solve. - - The dictator is certain, sooner or later, to look for some "adventure" that will make people think that their troubles are being taken care of. -And the adventure is very likely to ' e *"i."

Traffic Study Showed 12 Per Cent of Drivers Had Been Drinking The relation between drinking and motor accidents has long been recognized. Unquestionably alcohol impairs judgment and physical abilities. * The driving of a motor car demands quick thinking, accaurate judgment, ~3j5t{ co-ordinated action between eyes, cars, and the muscles of the body. Recently members of the North- weitern Traffic Safety Institute made a special study of the place of the drinking driver in the present-day accident problem. They tried to answer the questions of how much more likely is the drinking driver to be involves in an accident than the sober drivei and what percentage of accident are chiefly due to alcohol. In th course of their study they made chem ical tests of the blood, the urine, and the breath of drivers of motor car and determined the amount of alcoho present under various conditions. Studies of drivers were made over a period of three years. Twelve per cent of all drivers on the road were found to have been drinking, and 2 per cent had been drinking so much that their blood contained 1 per ceni of alcohol to a thousand parts of blood One driver in every 250 had been drinking to such an extent that his blood contained 1% parts of alcohol to a thousand parts of blood. Figures show that 47 per cent of drivers involved in personal injury accidents had been drinking, and that 25 per cent of these drivers had in excess of one part of alchol to a thousand parts of blood. Fourteen per cent of drivers involved in accidents had 1 5/10 parts of alcohol to a thou- Parts of blood. -Studies were also made as to the time of day in which various accidents occured. Figures showed that the highest percentage of accidents caused -by drinking drivers in the early morning hours and over the week-end. Women drink and drive as much as men when the number of women driving during the day is considered. A Book a Day By Bruc* Catton New Murder: Urban and Rural One of the bright spots on the mystery story fan's horizon is Erie Stanley Gardner. His Perry Mason yarns are invariably well construced, swift I in their pace t properly puzzling, and! infused with a hard-boiled awarness of the actual workings of the machinery' of law and justice. | £o we come now to the newest ofj the Perry Mason series, ''The Case of! the Shoplifter's Shoe" (Morrow: $2).j Here we find Lawyer Mason bump- I ing into a shoplifter in a department store. It looks like an ordinary case of shoplifting—but something makes him suspect that the lady in- volvtd is pretending to be a klep- omuniac when she really isn't, and he volunteers his assistance. Before he jets through he has a murder case o solve, and stands in danger of get- ing involved in it himself; and the whole thing moves along so fast and JS presented so realistically that you won't, a:; the saying goes, he able to ->ut it down until you have finished.

RAISING A By Olive Roberts Barton Dad May Fear the Strange Person He Calls "Junior." When Junior was born no one on earth could have told William Wright that he would ever be afarid of the wee bundle in the bassinet. He couldn't wait until young Bill was big enough to play bear with or carry piggy-back up and down stairs. When he wondered, did boys get to be real fellows so they could spar with their pops and play ball and talk man-talk? That seems a long time ago now. For Junior is ten years old, and not one of these things have happened, except the tear aptl the piggyback business. But even they were of short duration, because Mai-y said it was too exciting at bed time for a baby to be rolled around on the floor when his nerves should bo soothed for sleep. No one could have told exactly when it began. But it really started with Junior himself. You see, often when he was naughty, and Mary didn't notice that he wns lipping his H IT-R I I Kl I O VC BY MARGUERITE GAHAGAM 1 III I\WI^ LB^X V t COPYRIGHT. 1939 NBA SERVICE. "iNcZ- CHAPTER XV ^ SUPPRESSED aii- of excitement hung over the traffic court. Groups of people clustered together eying the judge's closed door from which somehow a hint of unexpected developments had crept forth. Inside Pat still sat on the big leather sofa near the window. Someone had thrown a wrap over her shoulders which sagged with a weariness not all physical. She wondered dully what they were doing. It might be that she was seeing this room for the last time today. Perhaps she would be fired. It wasn't at all impossible, she thought, recalling again the blank astonishment on the faces of Tom and Church when she had stammeringly exploded the bombshell of her knowledge. A twinge of sympathy for Larry went through her heart. Larry, too, was sitting down. He was over across the room with big Officer Burke standing besrtde him and he was watching the attorneys and detectives. Knowing Tom had cared for her had lessened the ache of losing Larry, of the disillusionment that came from knowing his weakness But Tom's love had also been a thing of yesterday. That, too must be all over. Looking at him stern and engrossed, she felt thai life had become an empty, ful^le thing. Losing Larry had been hard. At moments when she understood what he had done to her the world seemed a drear place. But losing Tom made her see what real love was. The men seemed to have reached some sort of a decision. They stood up, turned toward Larry while Tom spoke. "You see, Kent, the whole situation has changed, but we want you to clearly understand your rights. You don't have to take the stand. You can rest the case on the people's evidence and permit the jury to make the decision. Or you can go ahead and take the stand as your attorney says he was prepared to have you do. "If you submit to cross-examination it won't be a picnic due to these new developments. If you want Church to continue the case you may as well know that this witness," pointing toward Pat but not looking at her, "will also take the stand and give her information which, I gather, you know about." Larry's eyes swung over to Pat. "She can't tell anything that will hurt me," he insisted bitterly. "That remains to be seen," Tom said quietly. "She told your attorney and me enough to make Church ask for a recess in which to get this mess straightened out. It's obvious that Miss McGraw wouldn't have gone this far if she didn't consider her evidence pretty important. I don't believe you understand what putting her on the stand is going to do to you," he added significantly, "That's how it is," Tom continued. "The sensible thing to do is stop bluffing. You aren't the first defendant we've had in here who thought he could bluff hi way free. If you're at all smar you'll change your plea." * * J^ARRY looked at Pat. "Wei jflu've every reason to b satisfied," he said. "I might hav known, though. And to remembe how you used to pretend yov ^veren't interested in society, o important people. I could se how things were shaping up though, when, Sweeney came ove here to court. You knew he wa going to run for prosecutor; you saw a chance to get in with someone who rates in this town. You thought that by pulling this today you'd get yourself a nice berth. Well, go ahead. I'm through—" Pat's gaze never left his face His words hit, made her ache with the cruelty of the deliberate misinterpretation. "You know that's not true, Larry," -she broke in desperately. "I begged you to tell the truth. His face was whit«, the muscles !n his jaw tense, the pupils in his blue eyes drawn to pin-points. He juredi flt hep frightSRe4 Jace You know I would have stood by you. It wasn't until I saw you meant to use Bill, and me, too, that my love for you died. If only you'd given me a chance to prove that I cared. I wasn't trying to make anyone care—" her voice trailed off as Church interrupted. "We aren't running a court for the lovelorn, Kent. You can settle the romance some place else. I'm not going to waste any more time on this case." Pat saw he was irritated. He took up his briefcase filled with papers and shuffled them angrily. "The girl has enough to put you in a bad spot. I advise you to come clean." "Yes," Tom said, "I've sent the men from the A. I. B. out to check some facts. If Pat's right about where you were that afternoon you'll get tangled up worse and worse in your story. Better come :lean." After that Larry seemed to col- ,apse. "Well, what should I do?" she heard him say. *TOM said something to Burke A and the big officer came over to Pat. "Let's go in your offica and let them finish up here," he told her, taking her out by the side door. Alone in the privacy of her room she aimlessly fingered the papers on the desk, stared at the notes on her pad, tried to get her thoughts in order. They would finish up. Larry would pay his price to society. Life would go on, but it would be empty, shorn of the glamor and romance that it had once worn. She touched the fading peonies that Tom had given her and that she had so carefully tended. The petals fell, covering the desk with their color. The door opened and she looked up. It was Tom. She turned her head, afraid for him to see her face. The silence was too long. "The—the flowers are gone, too," she said tonelessly. They were words, spoken simply to fill the silence. "There'll be others," he said. "And they'll be as .sweet. Flowers fade, but there are some things in life that don't. Love doesn't fade; not real love, Pat. Not the kind I feel for you." "How can you now, Tom? After I was so blind and weak!" "It wasn't blind or weak to do what you did. Don't think I'm not aware of what it took to make you call Kent's bluff. It wasn't easy to tell what you know, particularly when it involved the man you cared for. But you had the strength of your convictions." "The things Larry said weren't true, Tom. I mean about telling simply to further my own ambitions." "I know, darling. You gave him iis-chance. He just didn't know low to play your honest game. VTaybe this will set him straight 'or the rest of his life. I'll do what I can to get him off easy. If he makes restitution to the family, wellt-I think perhaps a light sen- ence and probation will be pun- shmeijt enough. You see he's already lost you." "He couldn't see things the way we do," she said. "We do see life the same way don't we?" Tom said gently. 'That's why I need you. All our problems won't be solved 39 easily, but if we're together—" The pressure of his hands on rs was strong and kind. The days ahead no longer seemed mpty and meaningless. Even the >etals on the old oak desk caught he sunlight from the window and ecaptured the beauty of spring n their faded glory.

Mary was used to misbehavior, and such things as hammering with spoons and cramming a mouth too full did not annoy her in the least. But with Dad it was different. He did notice and said so. Drift Apart Very gradually, the dinner hour grew to be a sort of disciplinary school with father as teacher. Then, as the boy learned to * be 'more seriously naughty, not coming when he was called, getting stubborn just to show off and all the rest of it, his worst offenses were reported to his father when he came home. As something seemed to be expected of him, Will Senior still took on the burden of punishment. Next, Mary learned not to tell her husband, because sometimes he was too stern she thought. She took to shielding Junior. When his dadd, scolded him for something, she interfered and said he was unreasonable Perhaps he was. He felt the undermining of any authority and it drove him to extremes. Father William knew that his boy was geting away from him. He trieti to make up for his former severity by taking Junior out with him more. They went to ball games, and fished and had some good itmes—while they lasted. But at other times, the boy showed a peculiar indifference. He was far fonder of his Uncls Mac. He went to him with secrets he would not think of confiding in his father. Dad Learus Lesson Besides, Junior was now too busy with his chums to have much time left over. The gang age was here with a vengeance. Then it happened. It was the father now who feared the son. He did not understand him. He could talk to him and hold his attention. He felt like useless scenery. There seemed to be no thread to tie them together, no common ground. The Wrights adopted a little baby boy. And this is what Will said to Mary: "My dear, I wish you would do your share of correcting and not leave it all to me. From the very beginning. I want this little fellow to think of me with the same affection that he does you. I don't want him to think of me merely as a standard. And I don't want to feel strange with him ten years from now." William was wise at last. And so was Mary, Pirates Split Two; Cards, Cubs in Tie Tiring Cubs Blow 6-1 Lead and Are Lucky to Get a Tie 'ST. LOUIS-(/P)—The Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals further com* plicated the National League flag race by batting to a 7-7 tie at Sportsman Park Friday and leaving themselves a double-header to play Saturday, next to the last day of the season. Needing only to win as their rivals, the Pittsburgh Pirates, wore splitting a pair at Cincinnati, to practically sew up the league title, the tiring Cubs throw away the C-l lead they held going into the fifth inning and were lucky to escape defeat. Then Joe Mod- wick popped up for the final out in the last of the ninth. The deadlock left the race still in doubt and the Cubs crippled and weary for their final three games. The Pirates still could win by taking their last two from the Reds if the Cubs fall apart, and they looked liked doing just that late Friday. Itartuctt, Herman Hurt Manager Gabby Hartnett,. playing with a damaged finger hurt by a foul tip'in the seventh inning and had to retire. He had hit his tenth home run in the second inning woth no one on base. Bill Herman, Chicago's scc- ong baseman and captain, was spiked Jon his big toe by Jimmy Brown in the eighth and was limping toward the last: The tie broke the Cubs' string of 1C straight victories and further used up their over-worked mound staff. When Corlcton nnd French could not hold the big lead given-them, Hartnett-had to call in Clay Bryant to hurl he last three innings. It was off Bryant that the Cards scored the tying run in the seventh, Terry Moore driving Mickey Owen across with a two-bugger against the left field boards that Demaree touched with his glove but couldn't hold. Around Staff Shot As evidence of the extent to which his mound staff has been shot, Hartnett announced that Charley Root, the veteran, and Vance Page, rookie who joined the club only n short time back, would start Saturday's games. The Garde planned to work Bob Weiland in the first and either Paul Dean or Max Macon in the second. The Cards pounded the three Cubs pitchers for 17 hits today, Stuart Martin leading with two doubles and two singles. Medwick also had doubled twice before he missed his big chance in the ninth. The Cubs collected 13 hits, drumming away merrily at the first three Card pitchers to face them, but the best they could do off Curt Davis in the last two frames was. scratch single by Demaree.

Pine Bluff In Win FORT SMITH, Ark.— W— Gaining on the ground and in the air with equal consistency, Pine Bluff High School Zebras hurdled a ,major obstacle in their path to the High School Conference title, defeating Fort Smith, 13 to 0, Friday night. The game was only five minutes old when the Zebras capitalized on the fumble of Capt. Felice (Babe) Cialone of Fort Smith on the Grizzlies' 25- yard line. Five plays later the downstate eleven had six points, An offside penalty, Ray Hutson's 21- yard dash, three futile thrusts at the line, then Quarterback Payne's brief jaunt around right end over the goal told the story. Payne's attempted credited with boosting demands for steel, glass, fire clay products and lumber higher than at any time this year. Steel output was the highest since last October. Wages paid by these industries helped department stores clear more of their summer merchandise than thejr, had expected to sell.
