S. There' is talk iu the political haunts of London that Anthony Rdcn will be sent to till' United States as ambassador to Washington. If England is dc- lennincii to move her youthful former foreign secretary out of the European picture there is no spot on earth where he would find a warmer reception than in tl\e United States and Canada. In fnct, it is more than likely thnt dashing, debonair, 40-year-old statesman who matched wits with thci craftiest internationalists of Jim-ope would be completely lionized in this country. His charm is undeniable and /the. fact that he •wag sacrificed on the altar of Britain's desire to concilinte Italyv-with American people feeling as they dp about the Italian dictatorship -—would make Eden n popular hero here. The man himself is ii fascinating Jigure. He was born the third son of :the seventh baronet of Wept Auckland, ilet't Eton when he was 17 to join the :King's Royal Rifle Corps, emerging three years later as the British Army's youngest brigade major and wearing a military cross. After the war lie spent four years at Oxford, specializing in Oriental languages—a study which once enabled him to address the Afja'Klian in fluent Persian. In 1923 he won a seat in Parliament and became Austen Chamberlain's parliamentary secretary, stepped up to be under secretary, was named special envoy in charge of disarmament negotiations, became the brilliant "field manager" of Britain's search for peace and then foreign secretary. Eden clashed with Mussolini over Italy's conquest of Ethiopia and the two have been bitter political, and probably personal, enemies since. Eden fought the rising tide of totalitarianism in Europe and wanted his country to pnt up a slroiy* front against it. That might have meant war'and Britain chose the simpler way of a friendly gesture toward Italy, and Eden resigned. It is impossible to imagine Eden staying; out of public life, because he belongs there and because England doesn't waste her statesmanship. Eden is an unusual mixture of fashion plate and direct, angry, action. He rides, plays tennis and paints. His topper rides his head at a jaunty angle in the stiffest breeze nnd his trousers never lose a razor-edge crease. Married and the father of two children, he still fascinates his feminine constituents. He is a connoisseur of wines and likes Garbo on the .screen. His temper used to be ungovernable ami his profanity voluble. He controls both now. If Great Rritain decides to send Eden here, ho won't lack for a royal welcome. \Vc could do lots worse things than adopt him. h Ain't So Mashpee, Mass., is a town of 2CU on Cape Cod and its oll'ieials would have us believe that no boy there has "kind, good manners." It just ain't .so. It can't be. Back in 1930 a man named £aimicl G. Davis died, leaving a $00,000 trust fund, the income from which was to go to boys with "kind, good manners." Pleading now dial they are unable to fiml such model youth within the confines of their community lb< ; village officials have asked (lie town meeting to divert- the fund to school maintenance. Forgetting the impossible situation where all the lads in a town of 201) worn rude and ill-mmmerecl, 'consider that the worst brats in tlin world cnn fool the grownups. The prevalence of kind and good manners during the Christmas season proves that. But if there really are no kind and well-mannered boys in Mashpee (and that doesn't nieaii sissies) the cifecn.s just might as well divide up the trust fund and move to other parts, for Mashpee has n'o future. Long Live The Flea Scientists at Brown University have made the exciting discovery that by regulating the fond supply of the water ea they can almost double its life span. Aitough careful to point out that the parallel must not be too closely drawn, the scientists coilkl not help speculating on the corollary that human life might be similarly extended. The (lea facts were thai by limiting the food .of Ileus while they were very young, and then giving them ;\ full platter, so to speak, after flea middle age, the flea's life lasted much longer. Reversing the procedure reversed the result. This discovery, if it docs have a parallel in human behavior, will be very interesting to the younger element of that group of citizens which Air. Roosevelt refers to as the. ill-housed and ill- fed one-third. By the simple process of letting nature and the economic system take its course, frugal living up to middle age is a cinch. Iu fact it's almost a necessity. Then all the one-third lias (o do is live abundantly thereafter and live long. There is, presumably, some limit to the frugality.

"Why, yes ... This is a Bartlett model, isn't il?" thc plump lady pursued, mentioning the name of the designer from, whom Conslance had brought the gray coal. ,£hc reached out to test the fabric between her fingers. "Yes . . . Why, yes, it is." "You wear it beautifully." "You are very kind," said Constance between amusement, and surprise, and mentioned the price she bad paid for Ihe coat. "Thank you." The lady sat back with what almost amounted lo a nod and smile of dismissal.' The man had lighted a cigaret, meanwhile glancing from his companion to Constance with a faintly raised eyebrow, as if savoring something delightfully humorous in the situation. Constance swept him will) a chill gray-blue glance that went completely through and beyond him, and turned away. The line ahead of her had broken up. She advanced—the bouffant skirl of the gray coat rippling with her buoyant, high- headed walk—toward the table ueav the stage. As she crossed (he floor, a beautifully dressed blond girl who passed Her in a leisurely saunter murmured, "Gosh, kid! You'd never have gol that model if I could have worn II." Hardly believing lier ears, Constance went on toward tlie dark little man who still waited for her. "I am Miss. Maidivcll," she explained. "Miss Conslance Maidwell. I was told—" "But yes, of course," he cried impatiently. "You took your time about gelling here . . . Hm! Constance! . . . .The uamc will do very nicely. Anil yon weav the model well. The hat a bit more tilted, perhaps . . . Thank God you can walk!" Walk! Conslance thought feebly. Took my time? » * » < J^OR one blank monienl she wondered ij every «ie in this place were crazy or only she, herself, "I began to be afraid," the lit- llc man was going on hurriedly, "that Miss O'Dare would not be able to find anyone io take Lucille's place--the height—the coloviiig_-the carriage—Ihc distinction. To model her tilings, none of the others have 1he—shall say 'the almosphere'?" Slowly the Irue absurdity of Hie situation was dawning upon Constance. Now, at an almost imperceptible nod from the little man, a slinky red-haired girl with sultry dark lashes uaA a sulky mouth mounted the little slage in a vivid green evening gown will) silver sequins and slrolled gracefully across—turning this way and that—and then descended tiie short curve ot stairway at the other end to make her leisurely way among the tables. At last Constance understood. "I'm afraid" she began, suppressing a giggle. "Do not worry." The little man patted her arm reassuringly. "When I saw you come in, I said to myself, Thai one—she has what it takes' ... But 1 tell you what: since you have not rehearsed with us, follov/ Gertrude among the tables for a while—the tall blond one there in the taillem- with silver fox. She is an old hand. Watch what she does, and you cannot go wrong . . . Always remember (o smile—just enough, but not too much. Never, never let the muscles of the face freeze . . . Later we shall fry you on the stage." "But—" Constance began . . . This was preposterous. "Come, come!" he cut her oft curtlj'. "We waste too much time. And you have yet four costumes to model . . . The bag in the left hand, lightly, please. Anti- yes, the gloves are quite correct." It was preposterous—but what of it? * « * PONSTANCE knew that she walked beautifully. Derek had often, told her so. And. all her life she had a gift for mimicry which had been the delight of her friends. Surely she could saunter, turn and srnilc—saunter, turn, and smile as easily as those other girls. . . . After all, one was paid veal money for this sort of thing. And for the first time in Constance's life money seemed desperately important. Suppose she showed him that she hati what it took? Without finishing the protest that was on her lips, she joined the little group of girls who circled among the tables, strolling, turning, reversing, and smiling— "just a little—not tou much," Several she wondered what Derek would say if he saw ler here—Derek, who had brought ier hero because it was a good idea to go where Ihe best people Were, Once; the blond model the little man had called "Ger trudc" slopped to chat, briefly as she passed in her measured slroll. "Papa Anton likes us to group somelimes," she explained in an undertone. "He wants us to seem as informal nnd natural as possible." "Papa Anton," Conslance ggth- \ crcd, was the bearded little man in charge of the fashion show. "He was fit to be tied," Gertrude went op, "when no one showed up at rehearsal to stand in for Lucille." "What made him-rliow did he know I had come to take Lucille's _ place?" Constance asked guardedly. "Oli, I suppose because Lucille modeled that coat in the store the day it came in ... Well, I'll be seeing you." The girl stroUed on. Constance took lime to wonder about the other girl who was to have taken Lucille's place. Suppose she came yet? But no one did appear, So Constance went on and on, watching the more experienced models carefully at-firsl, until she knew that, she was letter perfect. "THERE had been four costumes set aside for the absent Lucille —all of which admirably suited Constance's proudly held little figure and the clear petunia-pet;il i of her skin and blue-black of her .1 hair. ' She was modeling tire black cocktail frock, pausing by the '(able on the slage to light a cigaret in the jade holder as Papa Anton had directed- her when she saw a trimly tailored young woman come swiftly across the room to speak to the director of the show as if in troubled inquiry. Papa Anton turned to her a startled face. Constance's heart sank as she saw tl»at they were both watching her with narrow- eyed attention. Could this be the girl who was to have substituted for Lucille? But no. This girl w<%s loo tall to have worn Lucille's models, . . . The young woman and Papa Anton talked together for a'moment longer; then she turned and made her way decisively out of the room. .•' • •Constance watched i her go with an uneasy feeling tlial she had not seen the last of her, (To Be Continued); Demonstration Club News Notes Lost C'aiic bland talcum powder lo prevent irritation of llic skin.
