Fighting Crime Jail doors have been clo.sing behind "public enemies number one" with such rapidity iu recent weeks that if there remains at largo today any gangster or kidnaper eligible for that title of .dishonor we don't know who lie may be. Kidnaping, which not. so many years ago was threatening lo become a major criminal industry, has been made so dangerous that it can fairly be said to'have been wiped out, at least as an organized racket. And big time crime of other kinds is experiencing almost equally lean days. . A few years ago the American people had been forced into the cynical view lhal the power of organized crime was such that nothing effective..could be .done about it. J. Kd- gai- Hoover and his "G-m.t'n" have reversed that situation. They liavu displayed such ability and determination that today it is the criminals \vho no'doubt arc wondering if there is any hope for tlictn. There doesn't seem to be much hope for those who run afoul federal lauv. Hut state and local enforcement, unfortunately, is often far less efl'cdtivc. ' In their pursuit of big time gangsters and kidnapers the G-men have sought no co-operation from local police. They have been afraid lu ijuc;ui;e in aii too "many cases the result would be a tip-off to the man they were' seeking, t'oliticiaus .arc not all the rats thai Mr. Hoover called them the other day. But there have-fjben'enough instances of politically protected cringe to give the chief G-man reason for his wrath. And that kind of alliance remains a problem, though by no means as serious a one as it was some years ago. Because: they lack the resources and because the scope of their activities is limited state and local police can scarcely be as effective as the federal bureau of investigation. Bui the communities which support them can at least insist thai they b'e free lo fight crime with maximum possible effectiveness. Sign of Progress It is notable today that the whole fiekl of social security is commanding more and more attention from the public officcseekcr and the average voter. If there is any one issue on which OUT OUR .WAY Hie candidates av'c agreed it i* U 1 ' is, 'of course, diveruejico as to methods best isuited to obtain a higli degree of social security for the nation, but: no one (iLiestioii.s the underlying. principle— the need of finding sonic way of proteclinti the average 'man from economic disaster. Thai is one of the most healthful notes of the present trend of American thinking. For tlie problem of focusing common 'attention on the needs of our social system 'da Its hack lo flic bcgiiminjr of time, and only in recent years have groat, steps been tiikou in this direction. Whatever are the ultimate achievements in social security in the Uniteil States, they can doubtless be traced to thin present progressive altitude. Declining League H appears * now thai Ihe victory of 11 Ducc in KUiiopin may liold new • threats to world peace, at least insofar sis' the future of the league of Nations is concerned. The most potent threat at present would sccin to bo the altitude of the I!alkan nations—Turkey, Greece, Rumania, Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia —winch liuvc, in effect, repudiated tlie League; : .,..•' 'It is their .view tliat "henceforth no of the independence of a smaller power in the event of conflict with a great power can be expected by the smaller powers, 'either from the league of Nations or another great, power." This means that. Europe, without delay, must work out a new form of collective security, or 'suffer the consequences; • ..'.. lliey 13,000,000 Independents Tlicrc arc Democrats, so regular that beast lliey would vote for a yellow clou were it regulsirly nominated by n Democratic convention; there arc Republicans so regular tluil if llio angel Gabriel ran on tlie Democratic ticket and Old Nick en the Republican ticket, they would shut (heir eyes to everything but the englc at the lop of the ballot nnd give, old linofs ntul horns their vote. Political oratory mid argument is wasted on these dycd-lti-thc- wcol partisans. They are fixed. They ;vcry likely were born ,tlral way.V'- •• > t But between * these two immovable masses there arc estimated lo be 13,000,000 Independent voters. They vole us they sec fit. To them belongs the balance of power. They have open minds. They welch the. claims of the opposing iwrllcs. when they decide, it is their decision which makes or unmakes presidents. \Visc parly managers know this. They nd- rtrcss themselves ostensibly to th.e regular Democrats or to the old-line Republicans. That Is mere pretense. No need lo worry over their votes. In reality, all the campaign arguments !are for Hie benefit of the hide- ! pendent vote; In 1932, It went for ROOSC-" veil. Now the Democratic strategy is lo hold It in line, so that the results of four years ago may be repeated. II may hurt llic feelings of the good party men to realize tliat they arc taken, .for granted. Still, that Is true. They are good flllers- in, but the voters \vho count at the showdown arc the men and women outside the fold who exercise their own judgment and who do not give-a hoot for either'the donkey or the eagle. . . —Cincinnati, Enquirer.

SOW CO OS WITH THE STOHY CHAPTER XVIII fTMIB things Linda couldn't think •^ of to say to Pcto Gardiner fllie icmeinljcrcil when sbo was dress 1 \«K for Dix that night. Brushing lier Italr with B\vltt, angry strokes,' sho finished Pelo forever and foimil her eyes sparkling and her cheeks Unshed. Dressed In scarlet satin pajamas, sho marched up and down tlio small area of lier living room, darling quick glances at the elnck until sho laughed In puro amusement. She had hcen going to vent her auger on Dix! nix had always tho power to change her mood. Sho couldn't be fad or angry when she was with him. She couldn't, be independent or herself. It was disquieting to tliluk sho couldn't be horse)!', tliat sbo was always playing being gay, liappy, helpful. Thinking again of I'clo's words, her anger roso in Dix's defense. It wasn't because Dix was weal:. It'was only that Dix was someone to live up to. She felt tho strain of tho situation- strain that is almost nniivotdablo when courlsh'.ji is delicately balanced on llio wires of two careers. Courtship was an old-fashioned idea. Linda thought, and wondered what new'word thoro was for it. Courtship was a lovely word for jicvcr-lo-hc-repeated days before Waiting for Dix, Linda found herself thinking of marriage. That she was going' to marry Dix, she did not doubt. lie had once asked her to wait for liim. Wailing for what'! Then he had come back and told her that ho loved her. "Wher a liiaii lovcil a woman he wantct to marry her, didn't he? Linda wondered, and suddenly she bail to know. Sho could not go on for years waiting for Dix kuowine; that tlio day would coin when slid '.yould. begin to dreai losins him, the day when sh vrouHl hear that he had hee:i on jwllh another girl and the would osi> her head and give her heart over to torture. Und* had nover experienced • that fe«Hng, but she was woman enough to anticipate It with nil its devastating pain. It took Linda less than a mlniito to go to pieces, thinking of It. When Dix arrived lie found her hands cold, her eyes dark nnd shadowed. 'What's the matter with my llltlo girl?" he asked, folding her in hla arms, T IN'DA didn't try to ba gay. Her oyea searched tis face, expecting to nnd she knew not what. It was the samo face with tho same laughing eyes, tlio same easy smile, llio samo Impatient eyebrows. Sho laughed nervously. "I'm tired, darling, and in a talkative mood. I want to play Questions ami Answers. Would yon like to?' "Anything yon want to do is always all right with me," ho answered, dropping to llio sofa. Sho lit a clgaret for him. "Yon shouldn't smoke. Think of youi voice! And Is thoro anything new bout tho voice?" "'.fcs. T dropped lo to sco Thome oday. - Thought I might have some rouble getting lu, hut ho rcmcm- ered my name and asked me in •JIco fellow. He's going to mako s equcnco of his last picture over nd bo might give mo a chance to o two songs." "But that's wonderful! Dix darling, when ho seea tho rushes •ou'll bo made and I ..." Linda lldn't finish her sentence; she wa: ibout to Eay that her work wonli be done. She sighed with slice •elief. Tho last day that she ha( o see Thome could not como toe loon. Siio was afraid of him. Afraid that ho would mako an overt gesture, and she would not know how to handle him. Dix captured lier hand. Her other stroked his hair. "What are nee, selzo your hand In mine ai ay my heart and hand at yoi e«t?" He had given her llio bpcnii he had hcen hoping for. "Som hlng like that," sho sa,td, dded quickly, "Only Uiat 1st one any more, Is It? Kxcept tli people still do get married. Tit list say 'Let's ily to Yunia and g married.' It's not as romantic, Ij ulto as satisfactory." Dix didn't fay anything. L|n< knew ho must feel her heart sk: g beats. Sho wished fervent hat slio had said nothing. MX would think that sho was pi ulng him, and Heaven help t girl so unwise as to forco a m .a declare himself! rUX sw.uug his legs to the flo< ^ smoothed >hl6 rumpled hn "You wouldn't marry ine, woi you?" Sho didn't say anything. "Come, come, darling, yon much too smart. You're a sitccc ful woman, and I'm a starving tor. I couldn't support yon in i manner lo which you're ncc lomed." Linda was horribly embarrass "Skip It, Dix. I wasn't forcing > any the questions ami answers?" asked. he T-INDA was glad J that. It made it that lie asked easier for her lo begin. Nonetheless, she wondered if her voico was as bright and gay as she meant it to ho when she answered. "I'll ask tho questions, and you npply tlio answers. Do you love mo?" "Certainly. Next?" "Do you Hi Ink yon always will?" Dix laughed. "Don't yon read the movie titles, woman? Don't you know that no one knows tho answer to how long he will love?" "How much do you love me?" Linda persisted. "Linda, you sound like a character out of a children's book. 'Am T supposed to spread my hands 'so liiBli' or something- like (hat? Or would you like me to fairori one into a declaration of We'll both forget U." "No. you weren't forcing me to a declaration, as you call Tho straight iirow. 1 ! had drawn gether again. "But lliero is soi thing on your mind." . "Please forget if," she begs"There ig something on my m: hut it's pictures and not ma mony." ' Dix did not dismiss the siit>j<SJ "1 always thought we'd get ml! rled. No'e r!?ht now" — LlmH 1 vhole being sa.ig—"but would ji l lave a date to run clown to Yu '' with me anil take me on for bet ^ or for worso the minute I gel' 1 job?"

Thus, a baby will be greatly excited by a large variety of toys, by a long automobile ride, or by great excitement in the people around him:' Any excitement which brings about fatigue or exhaustion is bad for him. Remember, also that the eyes: of the baby arc delicate and must be protected aaginst accident and! against direct sunlight, when the] child is outdoors. j In exercising the baby, remember that he is not to sit up until the muscics of the spine and neck are strong enough. When the child is able to bring his head up with the rest of the body, the mother may help him gradually to sit up. bending and reaching for objects above his head. • When the baby's muscics are able to bear the weight of his body, he will begin lo crawl. In that stage, he should be protected suitably by a pen, or in some other manner, against being bum- ed accidentally and against falling down stairs.
