Hail Stem Adolf The Nazis liavu finally extended their benign guidance to what used to be Austria and gay, dreamy Vienna henceforth may be about as gay awl dreamy as Philadelphia on a dreary winter Sunday. One of the major (ragcdios of the Hitlerixalion of little Austria is the certainty that the discipline that the Nazis KO dearly love will be imposed on her capital. Vienna, where for many centuries good food, beautiful women and gay dancing have been considered among the most important things in life, may feel the puritanical influence of the Nazi reform mania. Wiener schniUel will be broiled in some imitation butter, because the must have guns instead of butter, '.rhe beautiful women will lie sent to camps to learn farm work or they may be told that their place is forever in the home, for they must be ready to do their solemn bit when the, big war comes. Leisure, long looked upon as an art in Vienna, will of course be something to be forgotten for there can bo no- uncmploynient—much less anything like leisure—in a Nazi stale. In short, the Viennese must stop having fun and be. quick about dedicating their lives to the greater glory of Herr Hitler and his ideas of how the world Shbiiid bu run. ._. \ In this befuddled world the Nazi's arc true missionaries. Nothing makes a good storm trooper happier than the knowledge that he lias changed the way of living of some erring soul ;uid brought to him the stern light of national socialism. And right there you have the aspect of Nazism thai is more irritating to a lot of people than the more sinister phases of the movement. . The Germans used to be just about the world's joiliest people. It was a rare German indeed who was not dominated by the spirit of gemuetlichkeit. But Herr Hitler a p p a r o n 11 y lias changed them'into a nation of crusading zealots. Not long ago it was even decreed that the German would consume no bock beer this spring. Got away with it, too. Whatever yon think of IX-r Fuehrer you must admit, (hat he accomplishes things no man ever (iareil dream before the advent of tho regime. lint when Herr Hitler finally gets everything lie wants—which is quite a bit—what then? Will the German people be happy? Ordinary human beings—and that is just exactly what the Germans fundamentally arc—ask more pleasure of life than tho Xa/.is arc willing lo permit. So for tho present: Jlcil Hitler, Vienna, and forget all those champagne parties, grand balls, and the light and carefree spirit that made you famous. As tho capital of » Nii/i state you now have a mission, ami the fullill- ment ol' that mission leaves no room for the enjoyment of living. Mu sc Clia ua iii'causu Die Wl'A furnishes free music,- whal was once just about New York's longhest neighborhood has become very .social minded. Indeed 11 window m;iy not be smashed for days at a time. Tho youths who used to run in the gangs arc. down at the Hoys' Club (lancing with their girls. . •A very respectable dance it is, loo, each young man bringing his own young lady and stags being forbidden. Admission is free and a Federal Music Project orchestra plays. The danc-, cs are held at the Boys' Club at 321 Kast JlUh street. Oldest institution of its kind in the world, the club was founded nearly 70 years ago by B. J?olanti Harriman, Sr. Mr. Harriman was- visiting in the neighborhood when a rock crashed through a window in the' room where lie sat. His hostess explained that the boys engaged in such activities lo use up excess energy. Clyde Kingham, .superintendent of the club, says that this new chance at recreation means a lot to the youths in that section, where most of the families are on relief. And so a Wl'A project that might seem pretty useless under other circumstances turns oub to be a good thing. SftBflM We should lend (lie way liack lo si sane interchange of goods and services.

CHAPTER IX JJUT there was no letter from Derek—only a forgotten bill from her dentist. When Constance realized that, slie sat down on Die lower step of the stairway—limp and sick with disappointment. In a moment, however, she was able to tell licrselC that she was unreasonable. O£ course no letter could have come from California yet—even by swiftest airmail. The Thorvald ranch was probably miles from (lie postoffice. ... It was doiiDtJul if Derek had her letter yet, although she had written it the day he left and sent it by air with u special delivery stamp. Perhaps even at this moment Derek, too, had turned away from an empty mail box—hurl and angry. She knew how tragically incredulous Derek could be when time and events did not keep pace with his own desires. She wrote another long letter to him that night. It was a little difficult to frame the paragraphs without telling him more than she wanted him lo know. . . . She did, at length, tell him about Bartlett's—making high comedy ol her experiences of the afternoon before—making it all sound like a lark to lighten the tedium of. their separation. Barfletl's was quite the swankiest store in the city. So exclusive was it that an anecdote was gleefully told concerning one reverent customer who, going home after a day's shopping, complaining bitterly that people had coughed and sneezed around her- all day, finished hopefully, "But then, I was in Bar-Hell's all the lime. I don't suppose I've caught anything very bad." * * t PONSTANCE learned a great deal during her first few days at work. She learned that, although "Papa Anton" was nominally heart of the publicity department, and appeared lo lend Continental luster to all public occasions, it was Elsa O'Dnrc who did most of the work, and made mosl of Hie important decisions. Papa Anlon was celebrated for his spectacular exhibitions of temperament, during which he shrieked and gesticulated with a fine falsetto Gaelic frenzy that delighted many of his subordinates and intimidated few; because, underneath, he was the most harmless und spineless of men, Constance came to suspect that these theatric outbursts were often deliberately staged and encouraged as a smoke screen to cloud the bafile front when some undercover inter-departmental war—o£ which there were many—was under way. Elsa O'Dare, on the other hand, could be as soft as silk and hard as nails when it. came to getting her own way—and all without raising her voice or lifting an eyebrow; could say things to meddling department heads or shiftless subordinates (hat left the victims helplessly gibbering wilh rage or speechless with humiliation. j "And she's got the right idea," Gertrude, the tall blond, confided to Constance. "In her job, when Ihcy start trying to damn her, what she's got to do is to damn them right back—in a perfectly ladylike way, of course." But Elsa O'Dare knew, too, how .0 be Uiclful and wise—and above all, fair. . . . When she could be, she was kind as well. As for the other models, except for a few amateurs who appeared only occasionally, some of them gave themselves the airs of cinema stars; most of them hoped sometime to work into positions as auyers or as executives—like Elsa O'Dare; and they played politics with a silken feline ferocity that left Constance sometimes amused —sometimes a little frightened. TpHERE was no letter from Derek the second day, nor the third. On the fourth, Constance played ;i game with herself. To keep from hoping too painfully on the way home, she counted all the, cars that passed on her side of the bus, betting with herself that there would be 5000. But she soon lost count. . . . And this time the letter was there. "My darling," Derek wrote, "you can't imagine what a picturesquely lovely place this is— with «n old-world atmosphere of legend which I cannot put into words. "The ranch house, itself—El Rancho del Oro—is set in a vast open valley, with mountains just close enough to break Hie flalness and make a majestic blue and violet back-drop, without crowding in upon you. "The house was originally built, I am told, by a Spanish grandee, Don Felipe Sedillo, but has been added lo extensively. The older part of the house has walls two feet thick. It is U-shaped, and its three inner walls are constructed about a flowering patio with a pool and fountain, in the Moorish style. The fourth side of the patio is bounded by a high wall vith a wrought-iron entrance gate 3eyond which you see masses of : ruit blooms against the blue of :he mountains. "My studio, with a bedroom and aath adjoining, is in one of tho outer wings to get the best light, for the inner rooms about^'" ?atio are very shadowy. "The spaciousness and of the old house will be very agreeable in the near future, for; ilready it is very warm here. The patio is a mass of flowers and shrubs, and some of the dozens of • climbing roses about Ihe inner galleries are in bloom. Such va T ! riety and magnificence o£ color! . . If you were only here to share it with me." * * « (CONSTANCE read that line ^ pcatedly. , "f have taken time," Derek went on, "to look about a little for a small house for us. But except for the shacks of the Mexican laborers, which would be impossible, there are no small houses on the ranch. When you come, we shall either have to live in tho nearest town, which would bo rather inconvenient for me—or here at the Thorvalds'. As soon as I can, of course, I am going to try to pave the way for that." Rather inconvenient, Constance repeated to herself a little blankly. Pave the way— •: , There was more. . . . The Tlor-J vald family consisted, beswwi Ernest Thorvald and his daughter, of a con, a year or so younger than his sisler. "A good deal of a spoiled brat," Derek wrote. "Ilildegarde is the Baron's companion and confidant, but George, I gather, is the apple of his -eye. "I shall be glad," Derek finished, "when I can actually get down to work. For that will mean that I can be with you much sooner in case there should be any slip-up about your following me here." That last sentence gave Con- stanee a bad night. So bad that she dreaded the next day at Bart- lell's. However, the Museum would have been infinitely -worse, with its barrage of pitying eyes and carefully phrased inquiries about Derek. Anne Cable, thank heaven! had gone out of town. And at Bartlett's every one was too much concerned with his own plans and ambitions to have anir interest in hers—or so she thou'Sh*. (To Be then. structure which inclines to the development, of such disturbances al 'an early age. With the development of .specialization in medical practice there may be somewhat of a tendency to look for (he cause of n backache in a single fault rather than lo attempt to study the patient as a whole in order lo find mil jus',, which of the various factors concerned may be corrected. Women frequently feel that their backaches are due io some condition associated wilh childbirth. Men arc likely to complain that, their backache is the result of wcightlitting or some other -muscular performance. People who overeat or who suffer with their digestions are likely to feel that all 3f the (rouble comes from the stomach and bowels. Actually, however, any one of these things may be merely a small part of the trouble, so Dial il i.s necessary in each case to have a complete study ol the patient in order lo evaluate the various factors. Swedish Youth And Americans Find Affinities WILMINGTON. Del.. (UP)—Correspondence between Delaware children, celebrating their state's j tercentenary, and Swedish students reveal that. Swedish youth likes its music "hot." Students in Delaware schools have received lelters from ancient Gotenburg, Pitea, Hasunda. Jaii- koping, Sovslatt and-Malmo, bearing greetings and congratulations on the state's 300th anniversary. The correspondence was developed as part of the celebration. Lelters from Sweden indicate that Swedish youth lias about the same Interests as the youth of America. Movies, dancing, .sports and stamp-collecting arc most pop- uplar diversions and one lellcr, in addition lo a plea that the reply be framed in "easy words," expressed a love for "hot music." A letter from Kndnin Kuslafson, who described herself as "a rather sweet girl, with blue eyes anc brows hair," assured Albert Jarre! of Wilmington High School, thai correspondence with an Americai boy 'would be "very interesting."
