That is, il was argued that city slums, plus economic pressure. plus the natural spirit of admiration which the big shots aroused in the breasts of impressionable youths, were certain to produce criminal gangs. The argument was true enough, as ftr as it. went. The only trouble was that it didn't go far enough. For while it was impossible to keep those causes from producing gangs, it was perfectly possible to remove some of the causes. ' ' , Not so many years ago, a certain section of Chicago was known as "Little I. It was a slovenly district of crowded and inadequate homes,' and the ycimg fellows who were growing up had no outlets for recreation except the -Mi-sets. the pool rooms, and the. speakeasies. It was a wild and lawless region- wuhui 18 months it saw 42 murders, most of them centering around a street intersection which picked ur> the significant name of "Death Corner" Here was a perfect breeding ground for crime. The development of gangs m that neighborhood was truly "inevitable." The only possible remedy was to change the neighborhood. That idea at length got hold of certain public-spirited citizens. Thev bestirred themselves, interested the city government, did some work and spent some tame and money on 'their own hook. Playgrounds began to • appear. Recreation clubs were organized And presently things were fixed so that a growing lad could get into a baseball in a Byranasium - or do some when pop coolly punches the offend* er's jaw. But the chronic kicker, tlic sarcastic nagger, the cruel overlord who makes mama cry. these things do something terribly hurtful to our little boy. Children are sensitive, too, about work. The man out of n job wouldn't mind it half so much, if he felt he could keep the secret from his children. This is one of the crudest features of any depression. Still, children are sensible when things cannot be helped. AH in all. daddy, you have a right hard row to rake. When Junior was born, you did not know that you were henceforth to be measured by the most critical audience yet. Not critical, hut idealistic, harder still to satisfy. Here is your ticket, written by Johnny. Honest, brave, funny, stropg, kind, quick, tender and interested. Also energetic. It's almost easier to go through the eye of a needle, isn't it? To qualify m even halt the subjects is more than gassing. A Book a Day By Bruc« Catton Hell The Nation Grew un Graff We Americans do a great deal of complaiig about graft. But graft has always been with us. and it has been one f 0 our.most useful social institut- mns without it, indeed, we might hardly have come into existence as a nation, and our development during the past century and a half would have been much slower and vastly different. This rather surprising thesis is ad- vaced by David Loth in "Public Plund- *r" (Carrick &. Evans: $2.50), a book which traces the origins and operations of grafters in America. In the first place, says Mr. Loth, the American revolution tok place sitn- ly because the British government in Georgian times was in the grip of «s Unblushing n set of grafters as the world ever saw_ It was their grafting and grabbling which set up the presure which created the revolution. After the revolution, he continues, America found itself in a peculiar position. It owed enormous resources scattered over a tremendous- territory, and it was obliged to exploit them. Yet the class which had to do the exploiting was not dominant in society; on tithe contrary, society was dedicated to (lie idea that such exploitation should not take place. Only graft, he continues, made the nation's speedy development possible none of these things would have become as immensely useful as it did become had not grtft eased the way When business finally did become dominant, he adds, the need ofgraft fell away. Hence, today, our higher morality. We have less graft now because the elemens have been able to get what they needed withou corrupting anyone. The results were magical.

Increasing Salaries Lure Back Male Teachers WASHINGTON.-M')-Mcn are staging a comeback as teachers of the next generation. The office of education of the United States says that liettcr wages are bringing men back into the school rooms. Around 1880, some 42 per cent of the nation's teachers wore men, but by 1920, most of these had deserted the rule for other pursuits. In Hint year only 14 per cent of the teachers were male. Since 1920, however, there has been a steady increase, and at present more than 20 per cent of the teachers are men. In the same pi<rind salaries have steadily increased to an annual average of about 51,200.

This is the second of five articles by Dr. Fishbein in which he discusses the powers of protection cft'orded by national food and drug legislation in the United States.) On'March 21, 1938, the Presderit approved the Wheeler-Lea act, which be- the Federal Trade Commission spe- carne effective on May 21. This gave cific jurisdiction over the advertising of foods, drugs, diagnostic and therapeutic devices, and cosmetics, whenever such advertising is disseminated outside the boundaries of any individual state. Whenever such advertising may be proved to be of danger to health or to be deliberately fraudulent, the of. - fender is liable to fine and imprison• • ment. Under other conditions, he may be subjected to a money penalty which _ can be recovered by a civil suit. •» ; Under this law it is illegal to dis- ^ seminate false advertising of any _..: drugs, food, diagnostic or therapetutic .. -• devices, or cosmetics. The Federal ~ Trade Commission has the right to de^;. termine whether or not advertising is misleading, and to decide whether or •*• not it fails to reveal facts that are im^ portant with respect to he consequences which might 'result from the - use- of the commodity advertised. In the case of drugs, advertisements are not considered false if the advertising is limited to the members of the medical profession, does not contain false representation of material fact, and provides a complete formula giving the exact amounts of each ingredient. Publishers of newspapers and magazines and owners of radio stations are immune from punishment if they rlirclose the name and post office ad- flrc-is of the manufacturer, packer, distributor, seller, or advertising agency tfia: disseminated the false advertising. 11 any commodity that is advertised may be injurious to health because of results which come from its use, the Advertiser may be prosecuted criminally without - previous notice and ; fined and imprisoned if convicted. ;. The law. also makes it possible for :lhe Federal Trade Commission to stop the • distribution of any newspaper," magazine; ,.orother'publication by an injunction if it is found that it contains i^jfalse advertisement of a food, drug diagnostic or therapeutic device, or cosmetics. - This material in the Wheeler-Lea Bill is taken directly from the originally proposed food and drugs legislation. Therefore, the advertising of foods, drugs and cosmetics is under the control of the Federal Trade Commission, while the labeling of these products is left to the Foods and Drugs Administration in the Department of out Of here Agriculture. ' In the same way, there is a division of authority over adulteration and misbranding constitute unfair or deceptive acts or practices. It is important to realize also that here is no real governmental control of advertising of drugs disseminated in medical journals. As has already been stated, such advertisements are not considered false if they do not contain false representation of material fact, and if they provide a truthful disclosure of the formula which states exactly how much of each ingredient is present. This places a serious responsibility on the medical profession, and particularly on' the medical journals that advertise drugs to the medical profession. The publications issued by the American Medical Association and by the majority of the state medical societies do not accept advertisements for drugs, foods or cosmetics unless they have been submitted to special committees which pass not only on the composition of such products, but on the claims made for them.

CHAPTER II JpOR almost a minute, it seemed to Tait, no one moved, no one Uttered a sound. Then "Torchy" Stephens stepped down from the band and half fearfully lifted Dombey by the shoulders. Tait needed nobody to tell him that the swing leader was dead. Tait could sense it from where he stood. At that moment the crowd in the Golden Bowl jerked itself into hysterical action. Half a hundred rushed for the exits and were gone before anyone could stop them. Others, morbidly curious, crowded toward the band platform where Lud Dombey ,had led .The Swihgateers for. the'last time. Suddenly Tait' heard Myrna;s tiny, stifled .cry, and at the same moment he saw Anne Lester's stricken gaze toward the girl beside him. In a flash he realized that the girl who was to have been in the golden spotlight was this slender, dark creature who had risen unsteadily beside him. His camera forgotten, Tait took her arm firmly. "You must get By Olive Roberts Barton Son Puts Father on the Spot By Setting Him on Pedestal of His Childish Idealism When a youngster boasts that his dad can lick the whole street, he doesn't do it with his tongue in his cheek. He means it. Maybe he just hopes it. But at any rate he invariably endows his parents with the attributes of conquering heroes and an- gela. Even though he knows better, he clings hard to something in him. It goes like this, I think: "Dad could if he wanted to." Pathetic isn't it, this idealism in children? Boys the- the true dreamers. And therefore our best pressagents. One of the first things that a behavior-doctor loks for in an incorrigible, is the early disappointment, of his young patient. We are used to the expression "poor surroundings and unfortunate home life." What we never hear is: "He had his heart broken and his dreams smashed when he was a sensitive little kid." It isn't a matter of poverty, drinking and unshaved chins altogether. Many a respective well-off man has managed to lose his son's respect and love. A child does not mention habit unless it does something to kill his /aith. Let us see what his faith consists of. A dependable temper. One that doesn't take its ill humor out on mother. A temper is just swell, so thinks ohr young mentor, when it's fair. He himself will respect it. And like it. When he's ben a bad boy, he knows it. When the butcher sends tough meat, hooray for dad for saying "Stop buying from that cheat." If another man gets fresh, Junior tosses up his cap he whispered. She nodded dully, her clenched fist pressed against her teeth. Tait guided her past the table, taking Up her bag as he went.

"Will you need your bag?" he asked quickly. "I have it in my pocket." She shook her head, then buried her tear-stained face in the arm of the davenport. Thoughtfully Bob Tait returned to the hallway. There he stopped, fished for a cigaret and lighted it. What the devil had come over, him, he asked himself. Why wasn't he in there in the Bowl, in hand in there yet?" "I haven't been in the Bowl lor the past five minutes," Anne said desperately. "I've been searching all over the lobby and balcony for Myrna. Where is she? I saw her go out with you just after just after it happened." Tait jerked a thumb over his shoulder. "She's in there." Anne , snapping his "minnie" right and so his heart skipped a 'beat with i left, trying to get his job back' the shock His fingers, clutching the soft silk the job two or three -days of the bag, had encountered the outline of a revolver.

Fortunately none of them knew who she was. The golden spot had never picked her out. Instead, death had reached down through the momentary darkness and band. touched her hus- to keep clear of the Pacific-Plaza's huge lobby, Tait guided her down the short hallway from the Golden Bowl and into the ladies' lounge. In front of its foyer he ran into Bill Joiner, one of the Pacific-Plaza's staff of detectives, "What's up in there, Tait?" Joiner wanted to know. "Dombey's been shot. A lot of the crowd have beat it already. Better figure a way to keep 'em tied until they can get somebody here from headquarters." Joiner hesitated a moment, looking at Myrna. "Who's she?" "Friend of mine," said Tait briefly. "The thing upset her, and I'm taking her in here. We'll be eround." Joiner hurried on toward the wide entrance of the Golden Bowl, and Tait led Myrna to a davenport inside the foyer. "Take it easy here for a while," he said gently. "I'll hang around outside." Myrna dropped wearily to the davenport, and he studied the somewhere else. But some candid shots in the Bowl tonight would soften Riggs up. Yet here he stood, standing guard over a girl he'd never seen before and might never see again. And in his pocket was her bug, and in it, as sure as tax-j,-, was the weapon that had killed Luct- den Domboy. * * * 'JiHE shot wasn't fired from that table, though. It couldn't have been. Still, she could have .slipped away in the darkness, then hurried back to the table before the lights went on. Disgustedly Tait spun his ciga- ret into an ash pillar. "She couldn't be the one. Whoever killed Dombey was inside the mob that scrammed out when the lights went up again. The gun had been planted. Tait reached into his pocket, unzipped the bag and Jet the revolver fall unseen against the pocket's lining. The bag he brought out and transferred to tin inside pocket. He couldn't hold out the gun on the police, he told himself. But he resolved to keep the bag a \vhile—at least until he was more certain of a number of things than he was now. As he stood there, Anne Lester rushed up to him. "How did you get out of the Bowl?" Tait de. saying that she—" "I'm not saying anything," Tait said quietly. "How long have you known her?" "We've roomed together for five years. They don't come better than Myrna." "This romance with Dombey, Wasn't it sort of sudden?" Anne flushed. "I'm afraid this is none of your business, I understood you were a newspaper photographer, not a detective. I'm going to see Myrna." "Sorry . . ." Tait grinned sheepishly and let her by. '•PHE kid was right, he thought. What he should do was turn the bag and the gun over to the police und let them fight it out. Yet, if lie did that, the girl in there would find herself instantly embroiled in a sticky mess. She was hit hard enough as it was. He was .startled by Anne Lester's voice at his shoulder. "Myrna's not in there!" "Are you sure?" Anne nodded. "There's a fire escape to the alley. She must have gone clown that." Tait hesitated a moment. Then: "Do you think she might have gone to your apartment?" "I—I can't think where else." "Then listen. You get over there right now. And give me the address. If she's there, make her stay. Because if she pulls another disappearing act it's going to look bad. I know what I'm talking about. They'll want to see the girl Lud Dombey married five minut«a before he was murdered—and she'd better be around for them to look at!"
