Age Mean's liisci'irity for Office. Workers \ ^ There have been many evidences! within Wo pust few years Unit America gradually is arriviiiK at a full renli- /ation of the problems which the age of machines creates Tor the industrial 'wci'ker past the age of '10. Now tomes news of u .survey conducted by the New York State League of Economics s-'hawiiig a marked trend toward the employment tif you'iigeV men and women Tor -tlie '"white collar", jobs as well as for skilled and unskilled labor. The fact that the survey set the maximum "age for hiring of white collar "workers at 35 years—the same as the average for nil industries and businesses canvassed—would indicate further that the office workers must wake up to the obvious fact that employers want younger men. Office workers must reaiixc .just , where they hinml in the matter of hiring and liring, that they are not a group iipiiti, privileged (o job .security because they work nice clean office with their brains and not in a 7 greasy shop \vitli their 'hands. The objections thai employers list against the hiring of laborers of advanced years—poor physical risk, decreased productivity, slowing up and inability to meet change—also hold for clerks,' -.bookkeepers and even men of professional ranking. . ' Assuming that an•.cmpjpyor-has no prejudice against •hir-m'g'.'hWi^jiasl ,<\0, that he believes an" 'ajcj-r 'n'ulkll'c-nged man may be more ca'pViblc S| Aifd inore productive than a more- active man 20 -years his junior, there remain several outside factors working against the older -men. For example, most private pension systems penalize their employment. Such pensions can be .justified only -after a man 'hits worked 25 to 30 -years. Thus a man hired at the ajfo of 45 and retired at '65 will have contributed less to the cost of maintaining his pension than will a man hired • at 25 and pensioned at G5. Group -insurance presents a similar difiieulty. Premium rales go up rapidly as the age of the employe increases. Here again -it is more costly for the employer to hire older men, other considerations being equal. Aggravating the .problem of the unemployed middle-aged is'the fact that medical science has added many years to the expectancy of life. In 1850, f persons between tlio ajjcs of 40 and (i'i made up H per cent of the population of the United States, today they constitute around 25 per cent. Estimates set 38 per cent for 1970. Thus w h i I c medical advancement has brought added years, tho fact remains Uial tlu! longer life span also adds to llic problem of unemployment nmoiiK (lie ivmlcllc-iigcd. No one seems to have any real .solution. The remedy, when it comes, will probably Im the result of many years' trial and error. Hut such revelations as those disclosed by the New York survey are immensely important in brin^intr home the full realisation lliat Llic problem of unemployment after 40 ilcics not concern industrial workers alone. H concerns everybody. And tlie sooner everybody becomes aware of that fact, the sooner there will be an answer io the problem. War Wagers Dispatches I'runi Kurope briny the I'licoin-aging mute jh;it over there they arc belling heavily on when the next Wai- will, lake place, what nations will light—and whether the United States will become involved. The bets may .mean nothing at all. Hut .since Km-opc-ans have shown before thai they can draw us into what .should be their own private blood spilling, it is interesting to learn what they think we will do next time. Well, the odds are that the United States will stay out 'of the next Kti- ropean war. At the international gam- iiig clubs at Monte Carlo and Juan I,es 1'iiiH and such Paris institutions as the Opera Club and Club Anglais they are laying 2 lo J that we will be able to keep our skirls clean when next the boys over there start shooting 'poison gas. K you don't think those odds arc high enough, you will be'further upset over the 2 to 1 odds that the U. S. and Europe will war with Japan. The dispatches say that war tension and differences of political and military opinion have provoked un-.. usually heavy bolting. Let's j.hope there-will be some unusually 'heavy losing—by those who bet oil war. If we nrc lo live to n ripe old nge, we must use with caution our ability lo work nil day mid worry nil nlglil.—Dr. George W. Crilc, Cleveland, Ohio. The masses are becoming incrcusingly cco- nuiically hclpte 'through lack of vocational training.—Prof. Arthur B. Mays, University of Illinois. * * » Technological unemployment lins displaced no many men that only through reduced hours can we ever hope to gel them back to 'work again. —U. S. Senator George W. Morris. ». * * The dillci'cnec between the terms "mxssioii" uml "depression" is purely psychological.--Sir Jodiiih Stamp, British economist.

CHAPTER H POU a long time Constance stood, slaving on' over the winlery park wild its froxeji lillle lake. But she -.vas not looking ut the lake. Before her eyes danced fragmenU of iiirroses — incomprehensible, unbelievable phrases Irom Derek's note. "Won't you come down to the studio as soon as possible," Derek had written. "I can't get away; and we must tulk things over." Tiilk things over. . . . Talk! Yon couldn't talk away suffering like this. H was sleeting. She must wear something serviceable. She put en an old tweed suit and crammed a soft felt hat down over the dusky waves of her hair. When .she had clasped tho las- tenings of her overshoes, she stood for n moment before the mirror in her bathroom door, looking al herself will) a kind of compassionate curiosity — wondering liow a girt would look lo whom ,1 Ihing like this could happen. What she saw was a slight, almost boyish figure— too ihin, she had always thought; but Derek li-Kl laughed at that. "Vou don't need curves, darling," he said, "You Iwvc such <i beautiful skeleton." The girl in the mirror had a smoothly ovii] /ace with skin so£t I as petunia petals (rained in bine- ' black hair. Derek had once said lhat the planes of her face were fluid, so Scirsilivo was it (o the most 'delicate shades of emotion. . . . Perhaps the inest notable things about hoi' were her mouth, which was at once -humorous und lender, and her eyes— sometimes blue, sometimes stormy gray — willi tlieir look of expecting too much of life. * * * . AS Constance went up tire front steps of (he building where Derek had his studio, the door opened abruptly, and a man came out, colliding with her and completely upsetting her balance, ate caught her expertly, set liev xip- right again, and • i~he Courier News has been authorized to make formal announcement of the following candidates for public office, subject to the Democratic primary August "'.

He was a youngish man, with sandy hair touched with cupper, singularly live and inquisitive hrown eyes in a blunt, not unpleasant face, and an air o[ being habitually in a hurry. But he was not hurrying now. He continued lo stand in her path, looking down at her a little strangely. , "You wouldn't bo a materialization, would you'?" he aslted. Then, a-famine, as Constance looked faintly alarmed, lie ; hurried' on, • smiling wryly as if realizing how absurd lie must look and not enjoying the picture, "But of course not.

"Isn't this the devil—after all our planning? I know what you must be feeling," ho added swiftly as lie bent to help her with her coal. "But can't you imagine how 1 feel, loo?" . . . And yet, Constance thought, you were whistling. . . . "But come over to the fire," Derek went on. "There's so little time to talk, and we must plan." Constance said with n quietness she had to clench her hands to achieve, "What K there to plan? It's all settled, isn't il?" " - * JJUT she did sit down in the - armchiiir lie drew up for her before the fireplace. The wood lire nccdsd replenishing; but for ..the, moment neither of- tlicirr, uotjced thiil. ..-•/,,.

Derek WHS on !iis knees -when entered tlic studio, whistling as he transferred ciolhing from a chest of,drawers lo a irunk. As Constance closed the door and stood for a moment with her back against il, to steady herself for what was lo come, he broke off in his whistling, sprang lightly ii|i, and came over (o fake her into liis arms, making of it all one swifl, beautiful movement. "You're . I couldn't stand famine—on your account f mean, of course. What I want for you is pearls and sables." "But Derek, I don't care about tliat, really," Constance said. Then looking down al hi.s- bright, eager' face, she thought, I am behaving badly. Aflcr all, il is for me Derek is planning. . "You see," Derek was going on, "they wnn't the .portrait done before the first ot May. Thai's why they want me to fly west v.'idi them this afternoon." After a moment Constance said, "f ice. O£ course." "Think of Ihe advertising Ibis will give me, darling," .Derek ran on. "California is rolling in money. And in California. a commission from Baron Grapefruit is equal to a royal command." "ft nui.s-t -be," murmured Constance, "i[ it's more important , • --' "* ...j *L.V,II: Jinuui IdllV i_(UirliiiB lo come so|llian_docs this—this royal per- sonagc know (ha( you were .plan-' ning lo start un your honeymoon' tomorrow?" * * * J^EREK stirred uneasily. "That's what f was getting around to," he said, a strange flatness in his voice. "As a matter eri fact, f haven't had a minute to explain the situation.

I thought we could —well, bring the matter up indirectly, and I have an idea they may suggest your coming on a little later.", He glanced hasl.ily at his watch, and sprang to his feet.

Constance rose and began mechanically to told shirts and pa-- jamas. There were six suits of silk pajamas, beautifully reeno- grammcd. Constance bad given them to Derek for Christmas. "Listen, Connie," Derek rushed on, sparing her a whimsical grimace from tlie box of paints he- was sorting, "you'll love this: what the-Baron wants is something that will be a kind of glorified advertisement of tlic California fruit belt. . . . Heaps of luscious fruits —while and pufple grapes, persimmons, ncciarines, oranges with the sumptuous daughter in the midst as a kind of presiding deity. ... Bacchanalian, What? . . .
