Solving the Problem "Why .shouldn't we keep Die.wheels of coltbn nil machinery luniiiitf the year round instead of in Die coUon soiison only?'' imiuirod :\ speaker at the collonseeil oil convention at Memphis yesterday, Tic supplied his own 1 sinswer. Tliu soyhciin, he .said, is tlic .solution of the problem. It may well be the solution of Die cotton farmer's problem as well as Die oil miller's. It looks as if 12,000,000 to 13,000,000 bales per year is all the lint vot- ton for .which American growers will bo ablo to Iind a profitable market for some .yours to come. That means Unit 30,000,000 to 35,000,000 acres is all [lie land that can profitably be devoted to cotton. The cotton farmer must Iind some other source of cash income for from 10,000,000 to 20,000,000 acres of land Dint would go into colUm if it could be employed profitably that wny. Wliilc the demand for American cot- to)i appears to be static there is a steadily expanding market for seed products..,. Soybeans, in particular, are susceptible to a great variety of uses, some of which are the same as those of cottonseed white others are entirely new and additional. Peanut oil, also, is coming into increasing use, and in the large peanut producing sections many cotton oil mills are also crushing peanuts. Additional employment for colkin oil mill machinery and labor .iiiidj for fai nr Itr'rid''jimt farm labor means in- creased.prosperity for the South. The cottonseed industry and the cotton producing industry may well co-operate in a practical solution of the problem which the limited demand for cotton has created for both of them. Who..Pays the Tariff BUI? 'I lie president, acting on protests of American cotton manufacturers, southern a; well as northern, has invoked provisions of the flexible tariff act to curb imports of Japanese cotton goods. He 'based his decision on a report of the tariff commission to (lie effect tl'al Japanese cotton ' workers are chiefly girls under 18 who receive from 23 to 25 cents pqr day. It seems altogether reasonable and proper, to protect American manufacturers and their 'employes against a .25-conts-a-day wage scale. Ijut as was pointed out by the Arkansas Gazette BLYTHEVILLE. (AHK,)' COURIER NEWS OUTOUI1WAY in iin editorial this morning there lire two sides to (he picture. For a iujniljer of yenrs Japan lias been the American ' cotton grower's best forojgn customer. When wo shut .Japanese cotton goods out of this country we reduce Japan's ability to buy American cotton. For if she cannot sell her goods to us where is she (o tret the American dollars with which to buy American cotton? If we lose the Japanese market or a large part of it the price of cotton will fall. And if we shut out Japanese competition the price of-cotton goods in America will rise. The Amcridm cotloii producer and the American cotton consumer thus will pay for the tariff protection given the American cotton manufacturer. 7'/)(?#; Is No ItmijM The inside stories of Alvin Karpis, C'miiplicll, Mohan, and Itofoiiison, as now revculed, are notable for this fact—that these public enemies could buy everything but happiness. Karpis, for example, rentcil the finest apartments, lie had choice rugs and expensive furniture, and ordered hothouse flowers daily for his living mom. Good food and entertainment ware at his command. Hut there was one thing l, c co ,,i<i ))CVO i, acquire— escape from himsolf. Kverywhcre he turned he faced the demon of fear. Jt win laughing at him, taunting him, reminding him of the hot seat in the 'dentil house, telling him tliat ever.y footstep outside the door was Uio law catching up with him. And, of course, the law did catch up with him. For Karpis was the biggest fool in th'c world—a fool who thought he could lick the game and then forget about it.

You're friend ot hers!" iliss Carolic rose quickly. "No, I'm a designer. I'm looking for a job, and someone in the showroom told me I'd have to see yon. .but I didn't know you saw people only in the mornings." "Well, that's our rule, but — " Miss Carolie laughed. "Won't yon pil down? You've come in at the psychological moment, for I'm just preparing an advertisement lor a designer. Before I send it down, perhaps you'll show me Eome of your work." "Of course I will." Quickly Gail uulied the portfolio she was tarrying and drew out her skclchcs. "Oh, that's beautiful!" the older woman exclaimed, picking up a watcrcolor drawing of a youthful evening frock. "What a clever idea that is." She pointed to the unusual line of flic dccolletage. "Are these all your own designs?" "Why, yes!" "They're very attractive," Miss Carolie declared as she laid them on her crowded desk. "And you say you won the I..arnc prize?" "Yes. ! guess I was rather lucky, for Miss Cranston has some very clever /students." "Then you went to Merrywood Hall in North Carolina?" "Yes, I've been there for three years." "1 think your work is very good!" was Miss Carolie's verdict. "Then you (eel Madame Lizctle might be interested in it?" rpHE door opened and Madame -*• darted in. '-Have you (;ot that ad ready.

You can't gel anything better lhan these," and Miss Carolie placed her hand on Gail's sketches. Then, turning lo Gail, she said, "I don't believe 1 got your name." "Gail Everett!" the girl replied. "What's that name?" Madame questioned, while Gail watched a slight tremor pass over the woman's silken-clad shoulders. "Mccs K.vercll?" "Yes," repeated Gail, ns Madame announced, "Tell that nun there is no ad. Give him the information he wants about that material we have used in Mccs iMlwynnc's trousseau. to Mccs E-vcrctt."

Maybe working with her would be hard; Imt Derek Hargreaves had advised Gail lo take anything she could get at first, so that she might ge.t experience. She smiled as she remembered how carneslly he had talked of her chances of getting a job. Luck, he had said, often plaj-cd a big part in landing one. She'd never thought of lhat before. It one had ability, and perhaps experience, surely one-should easily get a slart. Perhaps Derek \\-as right —she'd surely had a lucky break when she stepped into Madame Lizetle's. Still, if Gail could have stepped into Madamc's office an hour later and heard her talking lo a friend about the newest addition to her staff she might have liar! more confidence in her ability and realized that, from Madame's viewpoint, it paid her to belittle the work of her helpers. Slowly Gail sauntered on, looking at the windows, gelling new ideas from the models she saw displayed or from some passerby, for always Gail's eyes were aware of slyle. It was still early.
