What Agency h Equal to Task of Relief? The government t-yslem of (uliiiin- isleriiiB relief is a failure because it does not nci|iinint the public with the needs and problems of welfare work. To remedy irmlicrs tliei-c nitisL be direct public participation in such work through some agency like the Red Cross. This, in substance, is what Albert I). Lasher, Chicago advertising man, told delegates to the Red Cross convention in Chicago. Any jippcal for development of JIN alert social conscience which will make the well-fed cilizcn see the hunger and misery of the unemployed man as his own personal problem is to be commended. Kill to go on from there and sny Mini lo gain that end we must go back to the private administration of relief would lie to lake a step possible only to the possessor of seven-league boots. This may not Irave been what Mr. Lasker bad, in mind. But it is a proposition thai is brought ii|> fre- (ItieiUly these days. The relief problem is as fufl of headaches as a keg of corn liquor; it is ciusy to feel that most of the headaches would vanish if we only could take the whole business off the government's hands and turn it over lo the Red Cross, or some similar group.' But would they? . . . ~ We might as well understand,, first of all, Unit H is sheer fantasy to suppose that this work could be financed by private contributions in the tradi- .tional style. The WPA program could be eliminated, of course, and we could go back to the dole. But what would that cost us? Direct relief today average* £33 a month a person. It is quite possible that this figure could be reduced considerably—although this enlightened' social conscience which private relief administration is supposed to foster might be outraged if the reduction were too drastic. Still, let us suppose that the cost Could be cut lo an average of ?20 a month a person. At the beginning of IflSG the federal and local governments had 5,000,000 people on relief. Returning prosperity has probably reduced that lolnl somewhat; still, if we abolished the OUT OUR WAY WPA, we would get nn increase in the direct relief cases, so Unit for (lie immediate future we can hardly figure on having fewer than 5,000,000 people to feed and clothe. Laying out $20 a month for each person, we would be spending $100,000,000 H month, or $1,200,000,000 a year, on relief. ])oe.s any mortal in iii.s senses suppose that' we could raise any such sum by public contribution in the community chest manner? The money would have to come from the government; and if it comes from the government, w ) ia t happens lo Ihnl direct public parUeiiialion (hat Mr. Lasker talks about? The relief problem is one long headache, admittedly. But the headache will go away • only when (be relief problem itself disappears. No easy short-cut is open lo us. 77/e New Unemployed The National Youth Admini.slralion now estimate's Unit at least 5,000,000 young men and women between 10 ami 25 will be looking for jobs this summer. The N. V. A. arrives at thL: approximation by adding, to the current four million odd out of work, 1,000,000 high school graduates find 130,000,000 to 140,000 college graduates. Many of these young people will be placed in jobs at once. The prospects lor young graduates arc the best in live years, the government agency finds. This is true, among other reasons, because employers more and more are turning to high school and college- trained youths for n cw blood. And so, despite today's huge unemployment problem,-youth must not 'lose its interest in education. The road to gainful employment necessarily is longer those days, but in the end the best- prepared man reaches the goal first. Swift Justice In one hour and 23 minutes of deliberation, a jury in Cleveland recently convicted a police captain on four counts of a bribery charge. The veteran captain, it appears, managed lo lay up $105,000 in a few years, on a comparatively small salary. This curious fact interested the law. What the investigators subsequently found might happen in any city. Judging from testimony at Iho officer's trial, it was undeniable, ignominious corruption of a public trust. In this case, the captain, bootleggers of the prohibition era testified, collected regularly from the underworld for guaranteed protection in his precinct. It is encouraging to note how quickly the jury disposed of the case. It meted out (he kind of justice that must, be had if corruption is to be divorced from public office.

Why did his mother persist in \vrifing about all the tiresome details of her business? Rex had plenty on his mind just now. More than once he'd felt like chucking his job— hut the thought of going back to New York to be a sort o£ floorman- manager in his mother's dress si) op was more than he could stand. Ho smiled wryly as he thought of Madame Lizelle's! Stuffing the letter— half-read— into his pocket, he studied some papers on his desk. But again.his thoughts reverted io his own affairs. He'd never liked the job, working in one of the Arizona offices ot the Travers Mining and Development company, in spite of the handsome salary he received. He smiled bitterly, and there were hard lines on his young face. Hex Hall's of happiness was to be a sculptor but his money-grasping mother had no sympathy with his dreams, and had, through her connection with Mrs. Travers, secured the appointment for her son. * * * J^EX did not altogether approve of Travels' principles. His employer was not above taking long chances with the law, endorsing crooked deals. It was one of these that was giving Rex cause for thought now. The matter of the Everett property was one he had discussed with his chief more than once, but the latter—an inveterate gambler— bad decided to take one more chance. So on his instructions, Re.v had turned old Jed Hoskcer out of the Hancho Angelo; had finally convinced Jed he must go and had shawn him the deed of transfer whereby Peter Everett had sold the-place'to-the .Travers Mining and Development company. But ; now— Rex had discovered that'thc deed'was:a fak«. He'glanced; up quickly as his desk phone a-arig. Automatically taking up < the receiver/ he heard the operator say,"'Will you please go into Mr. Harrison's office at once?" Rex rose from his desk, and walked along the corridor. Bert Harrison was the head o£ the local office. "I've just heard from Draffen that there's a stranger staying with Hoskecr. Do you know anything about that?" "No, it's news to me." 'He says he thinks this man has some interest in the Rancho Angelo . . . maybe abetting Hos- kecr. How does the property stand?" Rex cleared his throat. Harrison laughed cynically. "I'll say it for you—Travers simply seized .that property by fraud. Hut we've got to have it. Have you any suggestions as to what we should do? Have you ever heard whether or not Evei-elt left any heirs?" 'I don't know, but if he did they'd he in the cast, I'd say." "That's so. Well, you better call up the New York office. Have them put an advertisement in the classified columns—a blind ad, for we don't \vant anyone to know about the Travers connection— and see what that brings. Meantime keep your eyes and ears open. Maybe you'd better take a run up to the ranch." « t • QUT in the open, riding toward the Raneho Angelo, Rex felt his spirits rising. Looking around, he marveled at the fantastic beauty of the country, so diflerent from New York. A chorus of barking dogs greeted his arrival, and a moment later DrafTen appeared. "You're just in time for chow, i£ you'd like to eat with us. You know Jed, and this is the fellow who had a nasty spill. Giiess I ain't ever .heard your name, stranger." "Oh, It ain't of much account, I reckon. Just call me 'Mark'," Chapman smiled in a friendly sort of way. "How d'ye do," said Rex, "I guess I'm hungrier than I thought. If it won't be too much trouble I'd like to have dinner with you." Over tiie simple meal the men talked casually about the weather, politics, and some of the .'local happenings. i,v ,.;... ; < Vs The smoke from their pipes filled the room with a pleasant aroma, while the talk and laughter banished the silence that lingered so often in the old ranch hou • Suddenly Rex rose. "I've got ', get back to town. Guess I'd belt, l)e pushing along. If you're •' town any day be sure to come a i see me," he said to Mark. .';' Drarten walked with him to l' door while Jed hurried on to (1 the saddle on his horse. As \, two men followed him to t stable Rex said, "What d'ye km' about Mark?" 'Nothing! Seems like an inti estin£ sort of chap, pays his w;;i' I thought at first maybe he h Ms eye on the ranch—found h' walking along some of the tra 1 guess I was mistaken." ; "That's all right then, but it j'i sec anything out of the way, •] us know at once.
