Promise of Jobs Sean Coining ji'oiu Science A mighty, Uumii'Ji silent, lighter against tinemployhicnl is llie laliora- tory. As people wafcli nml dike |Kirl in the strtiifglo for jphs, the politiuul ef- forls, the economic, Die social, arc easily Keen. But Uicsu nloiic do not con.-Utiile Uio front lino in llie liglit. Silently and unremittingly, the laboratory is contributing its share. A few years ngo, Dr. F. K. Wcidlciii of tlic Mellon liislitule points,' out, only three laboratories in this country were working on the problem of liiuling new uses for old products, and on that of discover i UK new products. Today there are 1,000 laboratories faking part in those vital (|iicsl(i. Almost every day their discoveries arc being translated into terms of new jobs — not necessarily the same jobs that men held before the depression. It is known now that many of these jobs never will exist again. Tlic hope lies in llio now joljs (hat arise from, making new things which , the Inborittories lire devising. Take sleet for instance. Slcel production trjiliiy is only about 9 pur cent below the record nut in 1929. It is as great as it was in 1028; that is, about 50,000,000 tons of -ingots a year. ' - . This luu been accomplished in spito '. -ot'thc fact that the construction itiul ' railroad industries arc not as yet buy"• injf fUijWifiHjr like the quantity of steel they used to buy. The answer lies. in the demand from the automobile industry, and in the demand from industries which wen; of no importance before the depression, but which have become big users of sicti. The i/.diticl itself is no (JinKcr standardized. Slcol isn't just steel nny inpi'o. It is custom-made today] each lot alloyed especially for a particular UiO. ' ' . '.' • Should the 1 normal big users of steel, the construction and railroad industries, return' to the .market, there is no reason why stec! should not -cm- ploy as many men . as it jsver. did, deipite the labor-saving devices of the last four years. If it does, the laboratory must be given duo credit. The United Slates chemical industry is already the greatest in the world. Yet industries like artificial silk, ra'yon, sugar, milk products, tex- tiles, automobiles, oil and petroleum, plastics, rubber, and radio «''« '" »'.<•'"* infancy. :' Discovery' of new uses for products doesn't mean mere displacing of old products nnd' workmen. J'V»r it is estimated that only about 15 per cent of production is concerned with absolute necessities, The rest is luxuries or conveniences,". And vi>liilq Hi civ is a definite limit to the amount'of beef people can cat (though we have never approached it), there is no limit at nil to the amount of luxuries'and conveniences we can "HO. It is from, the laboratory that these will come. 'Mills, ninny sec in the test tube rays of hope Unit are not clear on the strictly politic!!! or economic horizon. '. ' — Bruce Gallon. Man Can Control. Hiinwlf We get accustomed, in an automatic, "go, to thinkin'g that everything can- be controlled automatically, by law or by mechanics. Somehow we get the idea that; a;'law, or a mechanical restriction, will protect us from ourselves. Knd it, is in ourselves that the linal resource always lies. A year ago, horrified by the nioimt- ing r -tpll of the streets, more terrible JJ) miijiy wilj'.s . thaw war, a great cry went up: "Put mechanical governors to limit their speed! 1'ass stricter traffic Jaws!" Bui "at the Hanro time, newspapers, m.agaxincs, ilnd radio throughout the country-applied themselves to the more fundiinicnlfil giilo, 'that' of .showing people what was going on, telling them of Urn traffic toll, urghijr i!i cm to be careful for their own 'sake. Up . to' now, automobile deaths have been 0 per cent fewer this year than they were during the same period of last ycaiv : That is a splendid, worthwhile showing. r It is probably greater Hum would have been registered by any nuw set of laws- any set of mechanical restrictions.

Thero was no reason why she should. On 'tlio oilier hand, Klie didn't Intend lo look him up because there was plenty of reason why ho should como lo'sco hor. Slio was luncliliiu wllh Dix when sho first saw him, anil it was slio who was embarrassed. Peto camo directly to lier t«Mo nnd held out lila linnil. "Hello, IJmla," h« said, as though ihoy had met the day before. "Hello, Peto," sho said. "You remember Dix Carter, don't you?" "I don't think we've met." They hadn't, lint of course ho knew Dlx's name, had heard Linda speak of him. "Will 'you S |t down?" sho" asked, hoping ho wouldn't. Ho diiln'l; ho was wllh some others he hnd to get back to. Linda looked over her shoulder and saw Honey waiting for him. She couldn't resist saying, "Como In tomorrow night, wqii't you? I'm bav- ins Bomo people I'd llko you to meet." Slie gave him t!io address -anil then co«ltl havo bitten lier tongue out. Tiie- next niglit was tlio Sunday slio had arraiigcil so that Dlx might meet Tliornc! Sho wanted all her wits about her, and now slio bad blundered into asking Pete' Gardiner. * * # QHB was distrait at dinner. TOe ^ tomlj fortunately, was sliiierb. Thome liked good foods and good wine. IJnila gave him both. She was careful not to speak of Dlx. and careful not to lot their conversation approach tho personal. And sho was pathetically relieved wlicu 10 o'clock came, anil lief oilier guests arrived. Dlx was with them. Ho brought tlio pianist sho hail insisted upon to accompany him. 1'elo iljil not nppenr early and slio was gla'd and' relieved. Su» didn't want to force Dlx on Thorno'a attention,-BO alie walled until nearly midnight beforo alia asked him to sin?. Peto Onrdlncr, distinguished in hisi dinner jacket and as far apart from'(ho others as-ho had thought her In those, flrst days In. Newtown, camo In a few minute* before;. Linda was truly glail to see him. Slio hadn't, time then or Ireedom o£ thought to reailzV that ho Irked her and that the reason was that . . that something was different. That Peto treated lier as though slio \v$ro a stranger. Not an though ho were In Ipvo \vtth lier, she would havo said if she'd ticen honest with herself. But why should flmt matter when DIx'B hour was here? She n'af in the shadows, watching hini, listening to' him' while ho sang, watching i;honie's face—for the- once> ^inexpressive; Dlx was singing magnificently. How could Iie : ljel))° but" ho Impressed! "Very nice fairly, Linda," Thome said, bending over lier hand and saying nothing at all about Dlx. After that Bhe bado each of her guests goodnight,-'and finally there was only Dlx and Pclo left. If Ltnda hadn't had a job that occupied most of her waking time, sho miglit havo (Hied it to Its brimming edgo thinking of the social problems presented by the- thrco men in her life. *' • » *" JjUCII of them took, a part of her time. There were the'constant reminders of Basil Thome. His telephoiiu calls Intruded on her time nl home and at Ihe-office. His flowers were a charming dally reminder that sho resented deeply. And (here was Dlx. It didn't occur to her that when sho was too tlretl to ECO him, he could find other tilings to do. Dix was necessary lo her, and sho must he to him. She found time to glvo' him that she needed for her own rest. Sho found an accompanist and a dramatic teacher for him. He was scrupulous about not permitting lier to nay for either, but ho used lier apartment for his lessons and lier company for hfs audience. There was also Pete. Pete Gar- illncr did not ask for her time. He didn't call her frequently on the telephone and ho never sent her flowers. But, none tlic less, he did occupy much of her thinking time. Lhula was' annoyed with' Pete. She couldn't have told herself why. Running into him at official functions, seeing him with a girl on his arm, rinding him the center of interest at a table not far from her own, she was unreasonably rcseiitfiil.of him 1 . Sho might .have puzzled over- it Song, and arrived at a right .anil quick conclusion, left to'herself, bill one bright day he telephoned her and asked her if, she'd "llko to picnic."

The baby must learii to attempt to : have an action of the bowel just as soon as he feels contact with the toilet seat. Many mothers, because of cx- ocss modesty, teach the child all sorts of tricks to indicate that wishes to go to the toilet. Queer words arc' used for the purpose, and also strange Rcs- :nres.

According to a Stetskl, head of the Leninism Propaganda Department of the Central Committee of the Communist, Party, one-fifth of the population between the ages of 18 and 30,. approximately 1 7,000,000 in number, will be qualified engineering and technical workers in 1041. The estimated number of such qualified workers today is 1,70 0,000. According to an editorial In the Moscow Daily News, controlled by the government, "it is a rise of technical knowledge, a rise of general culture, which is necessary for the mastery of technique, and for the abolition of the difference picnic.
