Wise Skippering On Ship of Stylo If any one mini in Lite enlii'o Ni'\v Deal entourage lias gained |)n:.sti$;e during the troublous years since l!);i.'5 Ihnl man is Secrctai-y of State Cordcll Hull. In the Ins I few weeks Hull hits added to the somewhat Kcnci'iil opinion that .lie is 11 pretty slick ami sensible statesman. His speech before Die National Press Club in Washington was as suue ;,;•> it was candid. After rcufl'inniiiB earlier declarations lliat the United Slates is ready to disarm when olhcr nations will, do likewise, Hull ivent on to denounce diclntors, treaty breakers, and land-hungry aggreKsoi's. He .cril ici/cil both isolationists and .jingoisls. In addition to HRi-ccing with those .sentiments, the general American public will probably go along with the policy expressed in Hull's statement that the United States will continue to steer a sound middle course between the extremes of internationalism' ami isolationism. It becomes increasingly apparent Unit certain governments will not stop Ihtur war-baiting aggression. The more they get, the more they want. H was id- ways thus. Now there aren't many Americans who want the United Stales to j;o over ami beard the lions in their dens. Neither do they want the U. S. to try to right the many obvious wrongs''^ the last two decades. But Hie "belief' is Si-owing that a couple of oceans r) o ,,ot separate America from all the problems of the rest of the world. Fearful prophecies that sonic ambitious European or Asiatic despot will get a foothold in the Americas and then go on to conquer the U. S. are by all odds fantastic. But tlie discomfiting fact remains that Hitler and Mussolini have pulled off some rather fantastic projects lately. And their recent successes don't diminish their notions of invincibility. The world scene today j s an ominous hodge-podge and when Hull slates that "no policy would prove more disastrous than for an important nation to fail to arm adequately when international lawlessness is on the rampage," he is talking horse sense, providing of course that there arc no attempts lo stretch the meaning O f the wont "adequately." JThcsc arc bad limes and there is al- OUT OUU WAY BLlf'fttJSVlLLB (AUK.)' eoUftteil together loo Rood a chance that Hie United Slates will find itself at war again unless the men sitting in on the intcrmUioim) poker game for the nation continue to play them close to the vest. Happily, Cordcll Hull give.* evidence of doing just that. The Bald Fads According to the town barbers, there is chicanery in Chickasha, Okla,, whore bald-headed men have joined themselves logclhor in the Brotherhood of Kin-Dished Brows and are vociferously demanding y la ^ barbel's charge only for the amount of hair they cut. they object hi paying 40 cents for a haircut—(he same as the fellows with a lot of hair <-ire charged. Their demands at lirst seem eminently Just; especially when they say they are willing to compromise and pay a nickel more than the 20 cents for a nrck 'dip. Hut the snap decision that the bald-headed men are right ami the barbers wrong just proves once more the fallibility of superficial reasoning. It seems that the barbers don't like lo out bald-headed men's hair. One barber claims, bald-headed men are too particular, afraid something will happen lo one of their rare sprigs. Another declares that the glare from a bald pale is hard on the eyes and has made it necessary for him lo wear glasses. However, it appears from our (possibly slightly prejudiced) viewpoint dial the ChiekasJia Hrotherhood has "something on the bal(d)l" at that and we will follow with interest their campaign for basing barber fees on the "acreage" rather than the head. Strife in Sweden Or recent years when things have gone wrong in America it has been something o f a popular pastimo to Point lo Swollen and say that the Swedes certainly know how lo deal with just about any difficulty. Several books have portrayed Sweden as quite a country—and all that is probably very (me. Bui the fact remains that the restaurants and holcls in Stockholm starf- etl serving meals again the\ other day tor the first lime in two months. There was a little matter of a strike that was settled only after wages of (.hose who prepare and serve the meals wro increased ubout S3.75 a week.

"We're having a preview at Ihe Motropole' Hotel there. •lust you and Gertrude. She will be in charge." Bnrllell's, Constance knew, was making a campaign to advertise Jls designing department in small oullying cities. Assignments to such work paid a liltle extra. Pauline, who had just come into the room, turned upon Elsa, hoi- eyes flushing. '-Listen," she cried.

The answer to excessive faille is rest and relaxation. The answer to indigestion is a well Troubled diet, including understood that I was to have this out-of-town work. You haven't any right—" "Wo will not discuss my rights Pauline," Elsa O'Uare answered silkily. "The last lime I let you go, you weren't fit for work for three days afterwards." "I don't know what Gertrude's been telling you," the girl blazed, "but—" "Gertrude," Eisa's __ vj _ wore dangerously bright, "told me nothing. I am capable of drawing . iiiy own conclusions from obvious signs. . . . And it's no use running lo Mr. Anton this time. He and I have gone into this pretty thoroughly." Paulino shrugged and turned away; but after Elsa had gone oul, Conslancc heard her talking with Miss Letts, her favorite saleswoman, in angry whispers. (he type of slc«k, super-sophisticated men who most often came to the shop. Yet he showed none of |he discomfort ot the mere male who finds himself in an utterly feminine setting. Constance resented the quietly amused, curiosity with which he was looking about him. As if this were a flea circus, she thought. Ho was older than she had supposed, with a deep lino between his alerl brown eyes, and a fine web of wrinkles at the corners. The woman was voluble anc! friendly. "I'm afraid we're keeping you after hours," she smiled apolo- aelically to Constance. Miss Letts—perhaps reflecting that she, loo, was being kept after hours, and nothing said about it- shrugged faintly. "But I'm going away tomorrow, the lady went on, "and my son and I want to select some things for a young niece who's lranded in a small town." "We're always glad to accommodate you, Mrs. Rogers," Miss L<?lls put in effusively. "If Conslancc is too tired, we have other models of my job"; and then in response to his questioning in the day, Pauline approached Constance. "I hear the gray coal was part of the trousseau, kid," she began, ami behind her sultry lashes something avid and cruel lurked. "I suppose you won't be with us long?" "I'm only standing in for Lucille, you know," Constance replied as evenly as she could. it was just at closing time that Constance was summoned again lo display some garments for a late customer of. Miss Letts. When she went into the show room, she foimd the plump elderly woman who had inquired about the gray coal thai first day at. Daimler's. wh "Oil, fcut we want her," Mrs. Rogers objected; and went on lo Constance, "My son suggested the day we saw you at Daimler's that you are about my niece's size and coloring." Constance displayed several garments, and Mrs. Rogers selected a rosy haml-knitlcd frock and a furred evening wrap. * » «' they rose to go, she said to .Constance, "You do look tired. 1 am hurrying off with a friend for dinner; but my son has liis car outside, and—Mark, why don't jou take this obliging young lady wherever she wants to go. . . . Oh, don't look at your watch. My son," she explained proudly, cant forget, even when he's on vacation, that he's a busy doctor. . . . You're not rushing oft to any deathbeds this evening, Mark." A doctor, Constance thought. Of course it can't be any novelty to him (o see a little lingerie strewn about. v When Constance hesitated, Dr. Rogers said, arching one eyebrow at her, ''Doctors are notoriously bad insurance risks, but if you're willing to take a chance, I'll he very glad." I don't think he'd burst into tears if I refused, Cqnstance thought wryly. But she was tired and she knew that by lliis time every car and bus would- .ho jammed to the doors. before his car when she went out. Constance almost laughed when she noticed that he had just returned his watch to his pocket. "This is a record," he announced. ' "I've never known a woman to get dressed so quickly." Constance wanted to ask, "How many women have you timed?" But she said instead, "That's part "Twenty-two forty eyebrows, Blnnchar.</ ,,..,. _ ""j ut, uumiltTL &. ^^™.^^A^ "^ "'* <;llnr.r* II, ......t.l ; ,, , \IIIJ. in the least hke| He was "I'll c.?ular hours of eating, controlled imotmts and choice of the right cods.

When the doctor is called to sen patient whir suspects heart dis- •isc, it is possible for him by tuclying the size of the heart, the reathinj of the patient, by listen- ig to the sounds of the heart; and y other well established methods o determine whether or not there re any abnormalities. In the absence of such abnormalities, the patient should real- ze that he has no need (or worry ml should stop concentrating oil he ' .sounds and feelings of his leart. Sometimes it may be nece:;- street, please. . . . You go out Boulevard." They did not speak again until (hey were out of the worst of the traffic. Then he said, "Do you know, the olher day at Daimler's I Ihouglit the joke was on Molhcr. I'd have sworn al first that you were there for a more frivolous purpose than modeling gowns." "I should have supposed," Conslance suggosted, "that to a^husy doctor, modeling might seem the nost useless and frivolous business possible." "Useless?" He seemed to con-' sider Ihe question. "Maybe. But highly decorative. And God knows, we need all Ihe frivolity and beauty we can get in this sordid " world. ... I'm not so sure that a lot of the women I have lo deal wjlh wouldn't be better off if they ' were doing anything half so useful." • * • CUPERIOR male, hm? Constance thought. Aloud she said, "I gather you don't think too highly of women?" "On the contrary," he said. "I've often thought women might be : rather good company if you (iidui ~Vi always have to see them at Ihcil / worst." "Well, I suppose being physician lo Ihe idle rich must be a disillusioning business," Constance said,,wondering if lhcre,wou!d be a letter from Derek wailing for her at home. "You are tired, aren't you?" he said in an entirely new tone, glancing sidewisc at her. "If I were you I'd get to bed as early as^possible. There's nothing like—" "I'm so tired," Constance cut in, 'that if you turn on your best bedside manner, I'll probably spoil your vacation by bawling on your shoulder. . . . That's my house— the third on the right. . . . And thanks a lot." The first person Constance talked to when she went back to the store after the .showing in Chester was Miss Le.tts, , ,, "Miss.
