A survey of newspaper accounts of at ieast 5,Q current dissertations leaves no doubt that the speakers np longer ramble on for hours (whjlo pcrspira- lion flows bcjiealh a Uiousand caps and gowns) about the great opportunity in lifp that is just outside the field jiouse cloor. Npr do they paint, a dark picture of gloojii and despair which challenges the njelal of the stoutest hearted. The 1930 style baccalaureate and commencement speaker takes off his gloves after the second paragiaph nnd chooses lo go the rest of the route with a little bavc-fjsleiT, hand-to-hand cncoujiler wil)i the realities of life, no punches pulled. Of course, there arc still a few old style orators who stress the importance of Jjone'sty, ambition, cjicrgy, willine- . ness-to-work, industry, etc.. etc., in the "great- game which you are entering today." But just look at these excerpts selected at random fropi this year's speeches : •, "}f we are to avoid regimentation, we must exert active effoYt to order our own scheme of life." "The question that remains to be answered in your time is: How far J can legislation g<3 aiul stjll register n gain for all the' people." "The present danger to democracy lies in the possibility that we ourselves will discredit the democratic system, or permit it to become atrophied through lack of use." "The foundatoii on which these dc- siiable structures (high standards of living) can be supported is an efficient and profitable production of things people need and are willing to pay for." "An abandonment of co-ordinated thinking paves the way for fascism and revolution.' 1 . Yes, those arc words spoken to J039 college graduates by leaders in business, government and the church. Times do change.'don't they? Embassy to Business Since his appointment as Secretary of Commerce, Harry Hopkins has been putting forth considerable effort lo win the confidence of business men. His t!e- giee of success has not been sensation- oj, lwl nevertheless he deserves credit for trying in tficsp limes \ylicn cp-op- C)yU><m bet ween government and business would do" plprity qf good for each one of us. Now SecKjUjry Hopldjjs proposes to establish an "embassy to business" i» his department. The Senate has approved-Die plan and the House probably wijl follow suit. "'fliis .would sel up a "highly fjmiji/ied stiifi" tq assist business and to appraise the Wk'e'r problems thut affect the commerce and industry of the country." No administrative functions would this embassy have, but it would be free to contact industries lo promote increased business activity. It would not be another government nt'cncy to police the activities of capita). Tliis airpncy, ii' finally ai)t))ori/,ei!, probably would not attack' our fuiuia- niejita) economic problems at their roots. Hut if it could do just a little bit to bring some measure of harmony between the government and business, it wo.ii Id receive the sincere-and well deserved thanks of millions of average Americans. • Publication In this column of editorials from other nc»s|>a)»rs .does not necessarily pie»i) endorsement'but is an acknowledgment o'f interest hi the subjects discussed : BlffflllEyiLlLE, (AKK.)'

Ader spending rather a bad liour willi his accounts, and figures. After discovering that two could not only not live as cheaply as one, but instead, could not, apparently, live for three times what it cost one! Attcr the cold figures fold him tbnl lie had spoilt at (he ralo of $25 or better a week :for food alone, for the two of them! In Ihe balhrppm, a high sweet contralto sting happily. Obviously his little wile was having herself a tuh and shower. And on the bed was spread a billowing concoction of pale green' organdie flounces, with a deep, leaf green satin sash, and a big floppy rnilan hat of green straw, . On the rug stood two climimitU-e she AAAA white kid sandals. They were dining out. They were dining and dancing out. Again. Dart sat down heavily in the chintz and Chinese grass rush chair by the open window. Theii Iris came out, trailing her pale blue chenille robe about her, jier iyqry' shoulders bare and glowing, rising above the robe caught together' carelessly, her slender legs and thighs peeking'in and out as she hurried lo find fresh lingerie, stockings, powder and make-up. '.'Hurry, Bart darling," was her slightly absent greeting, when she noticed him sitting there by the window, "we'll be late if you don't. You'll have lo get a bath and dress. Or had you forgotten we're dining with the Kehts?" "'**'*'.' J-JE bad forgotten. Completely. 'So engrossed had he been in the budget book, so lost in the wild 'hope of'curbing' their ex- Ira'vagaiit mode o[ living to a scale he could encompass, the memory of Ellen and John Kent's invitation to dine with them at the new Bay-shore Plaza, and. then go to the new play the Guild was putting on, had completely dipped liis mind. He laid out his shaving kit and turned the hot walev on in the tub. Rubbing the shaving lather over his faee, he watched Iris in the mirror over .the wash-bowl, that reflected^ squarely! thbVcntirc wall of the bedroom' beyond where she sat at the vanity mirror. ••..-•• "We're eating at home tomor- ?pw, honey,"'BarJ said casually, cutting a neat lane throOgh the drift of lather and' faint' stubble, 'I've got 'a''surprise for you."' ' "OK Barl, not company!" Iris exclaimed petulantly, "When you know•Jipw-mue'li I v have'to 'do at Ihe office, and alt this bcddes." Bart grinned silently at the "all this." He did niore than half the housework 'around the' little apartment, nnd t)ius far, they'd eaten most ol their meals put. Still Iris took her Home-making seriously. ..•:-•- , . . "No, not company, honey. Just a book. It tells all about budgets and menus and buying and planning meals. So we can begin to save a little." "It costs almost as much to live at home, Barl, as it does to dine oul," Iris argued, "with prices the way they are." "You clon't sec any rcslaurant men going broke do you, Iris? No, and you won't. And this book tells how we can eat like kings on a third of what it's costing us now. Belter food, home cooked, and at a third ihe cost." . ' ". '' Iris said nothing. But the tiny line between her wide Violet eyes was warning that she was thinking intently. -" '. *''"* _»' ' ALL thai overling, Iris was the 1 life of the party. She flirted with staid John Kent when she danced with him, and teased Bart constantly. She kept them all in gales of merriment. She had such a grand time herself it was a shock lo discover it was time to go on to the play. And then all at once it was 11; and they were home again, and yawnirig sleepily to bed. Next day, Bart managed to shut up shop directly after 5. He pulled the curtains as soon as the whistles blew, and didn',1 answer knocks oil the door as he made everything fast for the'night. But Iris was Jjprnc ahead of him. Iris, clad in a faded pink check gingham gown wiili a ragged'tear in one puffed sleeve and a tea towel pinned bewitchingly about her blond curls. Iris| bending over the stove, hurrying to and fro, studying a cookbook. Cooking dinner. The bedroom'was in order, the living room neat,-'and the table set. And a pot-roast simmered in !he oven in an iron kettle, and vegetables steamed in the rich brown juices. On the window- ledge an apple pic cooled, and she was deep iii a bran muffin recipe when he came in. "Hi, wife of'my bosom,'.'- lie greeted her, fervently.. She ilung him a worried, absent glance 1 'And' wiped her damp forehea'd'on the ragged sleeve. -•.--•••• THE FAMILY DOqTQR . or* Nausea Usually a Symptom- of More Scrioiis Trouble;-'Relief-'Not Enough r^EXT: Wlial constcllitlon li nimed for »n Insect? - j;y iH!.

That was the beginning. When )he incal was on the \ith\e, Ins wasn't hungry. She was loo tired to eat. Too liot. There was loo much to'do. . • ' ' ' ; "Besides, you want to economize, Bart, and you'll save whatever I might eat." He grinned, not taking it seriously. Jt was too silly, really, to take in any other light than as a joke. Only she didn't eat. And he did not guess she had had a sandwich and a glass of milk and small cupcake before starling her culinary preparations. After dinner, wlien all efforts to coax her into eating some of the really good dinner failed, Bart trjed to make her lie down and rest a'bit. "It's this heat, honey; you over did. You shouldn't try to do everything at once, weather like this." \ "As If that mattered, so long as you can save a little, Barl!" Iris" multcred petulantly. •*"*•* TJART'S slow, tjuiet wrath sim- ine'red slowly at that, but he said nothing. And Iris attacked the dishes with more temper "than caution, smashing a fragile blue pie plate as it slid to the fioor crashing against the gas stove. Barl picked up the pieces silent-' ly. -And when the dishes were done, and Iris took the vacuum cleaner and dust cloths slid began thoroughly cleaning Hie living room, his wrath began lo pass the temper stage. "Look, Iris, this room,looks all right. You're tired, why don't you quit aiid rest, now?" "This place is a pig pen," she staled shortly, "and work has .'to be done!' Your precious budget book said nothing about thai, Bart , Whilla.ker. It was 'concerned onlyfl' wi(h pennies, not persons!" Bart went 'iriio ' the ' bedrppui, laking the evening paper, and lay down oil the bed to read it. But the sound of her energetic clcan'- ing, ihe whisk of the brush on (he cushions, the roar "of the electric cleaner, distracted ' h'tiji. Until 10:30, Iris worked at her cleaning. She washed the winifcws, she cleaned the paint, she wiped ilie floor around the rug, and she polished 111e furniture. Then, spent, \veary, she crept into bed to sleep instantly, while her puzzled young husband l«r wide awake, trying to figure out this newest angle. .This martyred strike against economy and budg- This. act 'that he did' not recognize as an act, nor'guess was a role played with Ihe gusto and enthusiasm of sheer relish.
