The Law Lid Blo'ws Off Completely : People used to have a funny idea that there, was a limit to the things you could do by law. Of course wo know better now. You can dp anything by law, Why, not Ipng ago we had a law telling people what they couldn't drink. There is no longer any limit. Illinois is pioneering. It is on tli<; iioint of passing, a law forbidding picture . houses lo show double features. This of course opens the way for a lot of new laws which nobody had dared to th,inlt about before. Let your imagination go a little: How about a Inw thnt there must be not less than three, not more than live , shrimps in'a shrimp cocktail? This is practically a tradition, anyway, like the third term. How' about a law against any one woman spending more than six hours in a beauty parlor in any one day, How about a law providing that a vegetable plate shall always consist of equal dabs of spinach, buttered beets, carrots, anrj peas? i How about n law providing that all restaurants serving chop stmy must publish on.the menu its exact contents? , How about a law prohibiting doubleheader baseball games? How about a law prohibiting people from 'showing more than once those movies they made on the vacation to Geezick 'Falls? How about a 'law prohibiting doubling at bridge? Or in brass? _ In short, how about a Inw? • Well, how about it? You might think, in 'your innocence, that the question of how many pictures a movie was go, show would be a business question, purely between the people who make and sell the movies, Ihe people who show them, and the people who go to see them. That would be the old-lnshioncd view. So purely private a matter as this, a matter so little tinged with the public interest, would scarcely have been considered a matter behind which to throw iron regulation and the majesty of the law. But Illinois is on the point of declaring otherwise. Do the kids love to sit all afternoon watching an interminable show? No matter—the law knows best. Do the elders want to cliifl in, catch a quick show, and beat it? No matter, the law knows best. Any such law as that now Deposed by Illinois ^ould certainly seem destined straight for a long career in the OUT OUK WAY courts, which will Uicn be'faced .with the difficult task 'of determining precisely how much movie the ''citizen is entitled to see for his quarter. Unemployment Dwindles The best news of many months is (ho estimate of the National Industrial Conference Board that unemployment lias for the lirst lime since last December fallen Ijelow 10,000,000, Forty-four and a half million working—less than 10,000,000 not working. That is the score as of Mny, tljc latest estimate, with every trend indicating that as of ,liniR and probably July, more people were working, fewer not working. • Of course it is not enough of a dent in the problem—basically it remains. JJut if autumn sees the- figure cut to 8,000,000, wllh. the jobs boosted lo 4G,- 000,000, the direction at least will be right. • And direction, these days, is everything. Cleur Conscience /<>/• Another of those, odd.'little stories has come Ih.rough about a person who had a conscience. . This time it was a farmer, who felt lie had been pajd'$2 too much from the. AAA fimda and returned it to the treasury. 'These things come up now and then —;t relief client, hack on his feet, who returns gratefully what his government has paid him, a .tax-dodger who decides it wasn't worth il, inul forwards some forgotten but successfully evaded assessment. The odd thins is that tin's should be news at all.

"Well," said Uoy, "it's simply tins: You will have to do just as 1 loll you." "Of course I will,". Wilfrid said cordially. "Anything you like." "Well then, I'll fiivc'you a lesson at 4 o'clock, Bui you've got lo promise to go to bed early (o- nigbl." :• : ' "Bed early? Why?" "Any toiler on the verge of a bifi match,'-' said Roy weightily, "needs sleep. You won't get it tomorrow night. You'll be worrying about the match. So you've got lo get it tonight. And"— he extended an accusing finger— "you went out dancing lasl night and came home and played the banjo. Do you think Sammy Snead would act like that. Do you?" "Humph! Well, you just give me a lesson or two and I'll go to bed at sundown if you want." "Okay," said Hoy. "Good," said Wilfrid gratefully. "Now I'm going in. I want to see Barbara. Never can tell what my brother might be up to, the dirty louse." He gathered up his golfing materials and stalked away. + * t TROY stood for a moment deep in thought. He was not exactly sure how this alliance with Wilfrid would benefit him. Bui at all events, it was a means of getting rid of at least one of the twins for the evening. The thing now was to seek the garage and. do some constructive dunking. He turned and almost trod on a smalt boy who had appeared, like a genii from the other side of the hyacinth bush. "Hello," lie said abstractedly. "Hello, my son." "Hello yourself," said the boy. "And I'm not your son." Roy stood corrected. "No, of course not. Whose son are you?" "The old man's," said the boy irreverently. This, reflected Roy, must be the kid brother Billy of whom Babs had spoken. Strongly endeared to the lad by this thought, lie scrutinized, him more closely. He saw a dark-haired youngster with big black eyes which peered mischievously out of a shrewd elfin Wilfrid retreating into the distance. •..•'• . "That guy," he said disdainfully, can't play golf for nub. And I've got 10 bucks on him." "You've got what?" "When they first stsric'd," explained the boy, "Wilfrid looked bolter 16 me. But now"—he shook his head sadly—"he's gone rotten." "And you think you may lose your 10 bucks?" The boy nodded. "That's what I'm afraid of." "Who arc you belling with?" asked Roy suddenly. "Baskcrville." Ho gave me my choice. And"—he bit his lip in mortification—"like a sap, I took Wilfrid.", ; "Well, If it were I," said Roy, 'I wouldn't kriow which I had bet on. 1 can't tell 'cm apart." ' The boy scoffed. "Aw, that's a cinch. Wilfrid's got a mole on the third finger of his right hand. That's how you do it." "I see," said Roy, filing (he information carefully. "What I want to know is," said the boy, looking at Roy accusingly, "what was lie talking to you about?" "Oh! About a course of instructions in the fascinating game of golf." "You mean lessons?" "Something like that. Bui"— Roy stiook his head—"there isn't time to do much. I guess you might as well kiss your 10 bucks goodby." ' "Gosh," said the lad, in alarm. "I can't do that." 'No? "What's 10 bucks to a financier like you?" "The thing is," Billy said patiently, "I haven't got 10 bucks." ' * » * ' OY took out a cigaret. "There's one way you could win sure," he said, surprised at the depravity of his own brain. "That is, if Ron didn't show up for the match. II he forfeited, you face. know. Didn't play." "How do you mean?" Billy. asked "Oh, I haven't thought out the details yet. It simply occurred to me that would be one way to save you from— from national dis- Jraec." "Well, what do you want me to do?" Billy demanded. "Nothing yet. But if I think of something, are you game to help out?" •-.... "Ami? I should, hope to tell you." "Well then, not a word to anybody. Just stand by ready to rally round, that's all." Billy scampered ' the figure of second lime Roy and for, the garage.. But for the second time he was marked for interruption. The figure of Mr, J. Pemberton Canning was advancing toward him across the lawn. Mr. Canning -had exchanged the gray blanket for a blue flannel coat and dark trousers. He walked, spring- ily, purposefully; " ' "Ah, there you are,' llerring," he called. "Been looking air over the place for/you. Come and see some artist's representations ol glyptodons that just came : irom New York'." . ' "Delighted, sir," said Hoy, wondering what the proper cracks to make about glyptodons might be. :* •'*•*.• ' • ' A GOOD general will pause be• fl times and review the situation before'plunging blindly ahead.

As he saw .things, this mucli had been achieved: He was in the good graces of J. Pemberton Canning due to his avowed interest in paleontology.
