War Insurance Only Half Way to l\uia>. If a man owned 11 fiictory and .spout huge sums to pity for tiro insurance, but refused to lay out.n dime to remedy the defective wiring, fiiulty fines, and other defects which, rniidc lirc.s ])rob;iblo, it would luit bo long before his friends and relatives yalhcrt'd about to have his hand examined. There never hns been a factory bwnor like flint and there never will he. But .mankind as a whole seems to be bent on making a very similar record in regard to the danger of war. A .current bulletin from the League of Nations Association in New York illustrates the point. The •Leajfuo of Nations budget lor 193(5- hfis just been revealed. Dm 1 -- ing this year the League will .s^end slightly more than $!),237,000, all iohl. This is about cqu.nl to four days' expenditure of the United States' HK!(i armament' budget. Similarly, the cost of supporting the League from 1020 to this present moment is substantially iess than the cost of maintaining Japanese troops in Maiichukuo in l!)3i. Great Hrilnin has paid to the League, from the first to last, about one-fourth of the price of a new drcadnaught. Incidentally, even this expense has been clem 1 gravy, for the League's rescue of Austrian credit in 1922 enabled Great Britain to recover a loan to Austria of two and qua-half, jnillion pounds, which . otherwise would have been written oil' as a. bud debt. This, then, is the way the world is willing to, spend for peace. For (ire insurance, in the form of armies, navies and air fleets; it will pour out billions of dollars; for fire prevention, in the form of the one international organization which can do anything toward keeping the peace, it spends next to nothing. If there is anything logical about a world that lays out its money that way, tho ; logic is not visible to the naked eye. . A good deal lias been said lately about the "death" of tlie League. Certainly the League has proved unable to check the Japanese in Jilan- chukuo, the Italians in Ethiopia, or the Germans in the Rhinelaml. Hut each failure merely emphasizes the world's dire need of a League which wouHl be truly effective. Unless modern civilization is to col- OUT OUR WAY lapse utterly in the fires of war, there must be some strong, concerted action to remove war's causes and to compel adventurers to keep the peace. Such action can be taken only through the League or through .some orgMiii'/.a- tion remarkably liko it. How long will it lie before the world at large is ready to reall/e that fact? As tilings stand now, we are spending all our money on lire insurance and letting lire prevention take care of itself. A Vasl Shifting Army If you've been wondering just how much the activities of government have expanded in recent years, consider the fact that one job in every 10 is a government position. In no other "industry" lias there been such activity, says the Civil Service Itcform League. I'Yom the lowest units of government upward, the trend in the hist decade or so definitely has been toward more and more public administration. Hut Hie trend is .significant, ton, for its shifting character and immense turnover. For politics makes and unmakes most of these jobs. There still is n large mass of government employes who labor under the shadow of the spoils system, with UK; result that efficiency and economy are thrown out the window. It is not the fault of any particular miminisli'ation, but a common weakness of all. It is time that Die electorate became smart and plugged harder for wholesale adoption of the merit svslein.

It's the Madiime herself that came iti half an hour ago, and, God forgive me, bul llicre's fire in her eyes." There was no laughter in the cloaltronm when Gail pushed thi door open. "Why's everybody so upset this morning?" G.-dl asked Clytie. "Oil, Madame's in a furiou: i?mper, and no one knows ye v,'lio'll get Ihe benefit of it." The mannequin shrugged he: shoulders. "Don't look so seared She won't eat you." "No," piped up Ariadne, "bu she mny make you feel less lhai Ihe dusl if she wanls to . . . an it won't be just a private affair She'll choose a moment whei she's sure of an audience."

Does lie ever- come here? questioned Ariadne, who hnd CfO recently come lo Ihc shop. "Once in a blue moon; but don't Ihink it will make any difference lo you. Madame's the one who chooses his girl friends!" » » * pICKING up her handbag, Gail left the room. It Madame was on llic warpath and her ill temper directed at Gale lierselt the girl wanted lo know it and have it done with. But as she walked along Ihe rlimly-lit passage everything was peaceful. Perhaps, f the designing room'opened and er employer appeared on the hreshola. "Good morning," said • Gail uietly. Madame Llzette ignored the greeting, as-she flounced into the oom. "Mrs. Travers is coming n this jtorenoon with her ditugh- er," she said, "and I want you' o get a frock ready for her immediately. Have Arjadnc come POISON IW icre at once. This is the matc- lal." She pointed to a bolt of heer, silky organdie in a delcct- iblc shade of blue. "This is the style she wants," Madame said and Gail felt her pirits rise as she recognized one if the sketches on which she hacl vorked Ihe day before. "Very well, Madame;" Gail an- wered, a prayer of thankfulness ising in her heart as she watched er go. Toinette and Selma entered the room a moment later. "Oh, Toinetie," Gail said. "I wonder f you would find Ariadne and ask her lo come here at-once." "All rigtil, Miss Everett." The wiry little Frenchwoman hurriedly departed. "You're going to drape that on her?" questioned Selma. "Yes, Madame .has a customer coming IKis forenoon, so we'll have to hustle." "Well, we haven't much else to do today,"' remarked Selma, glancing around the room. "That's good, for I understand this dress is for one of Madame's special customers." Selma laughed. "Oh, Miss Everett, they're all special customers according to the Madame! She likes to make us think they're important; A* If it would make any diirerence fa the work we put on tho dresses: That cuts no ice with ihrough the organdie and an occasional little cry from Ihe model as Gail, in her enthusiasm, stuck a pin a little farther in than Ihe thin satin slip Ariadne was wearing, revealed the progress of tho work. At last Gail exclaimed. "There! Take a look at yourself in thft mirro! 1 . How do you like it?" "Not bad—but don't you think the ribbons might be changed a little here?" "Yes, I believe that's belter," agreed Gail, quickly unpinning and repinning the ribbons. "Now I'm going to call Madame an,d tell •her we're ready lo show her the frock." As she lifted the receiver, the door on the right opened, "The dress is ready—yes? Why did you not send for me at oiicc as I tell you?" Before Gail could answer, Madame Lizelte had •cached Ariadne, and) with a plump little hand on the girl's shoulder, turned her around as though she were a dummy. Then •she shrugged her shoulders. "Have Selma and Toinette help you tack it up right away so we can show it to Mees Travers. There won't be time lo finish—all she wanls today is to see the effect. You understand?" Without another word Madame tripped away, "So!" exclaimed Ariadne. "What does it mean?" She glanced at Gail with quizzical eyes. * * + T)UT Toinelte, always quick as a flash, cried, "H means that Madame is pleased—that sh'e can nnd no fault. Yes, that's it!" Then, hurrying toward Gail, she said, "Can I help you, Miss Everett?" "Thank you, Toinetie! I think .we've got them all out." Together me any more. I've heard it too often," "You've been here, quite a long time theiv 1 " asked Gail. * *' * GELMA shrugged her heavy shoulders. "It's belter than being in a wholesale house . . . not so many people. May'fm it's worse too, for Madame can mako —" she laughed. "You know, what I mean! But there, such is life." She held out-her hands expressively. "Well, you seem to be quite happy." "And why not? Toinette, Frank and I have worked for a long time logelhcr. We're friends. So long as we're together everything after all, the Mayhe Mndamc [iris were wrong, -but her thoughts ended swiflly as the other door right." ' ; Vhat'i fine," commented Gail, as Ariddne sauntered in. . For the next hall hour hardly a .word was spoken, though the sharp snip, snip of shears cutting .hey slipped the fragile creation over Ariadne's head. At half past 11 Lita came hurrying Into'the room. "Is that organdie dress ready? 11 she asked. "Miss Travers is in the showroom and Madame wants it nt once. Quick, where is it?" "Hold 1 your horses, Lita," replied ; Frank, removing the dress from the- pressing machine and slipping 'it on a hanger, while Toineltc with quick, eager hands, straightened the flounces. "Now you may take it," said Gail, snipping a tacking thread from the front. Noon came and the others hurried from the room. Gail straight- ened.her desk and,.picking up her gloves and handbook, -» started across the room. Suddenly the 'door opened and Lita called, "You're to go into the showroom at once, Miss Everett!"
