If we stopped worrying about that, and saw to it that our schools did make every pupil iiiidur.slaml fully about sonic of our American heroes—Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln— we wouldn't .find things like Ibis Hlai'k Legion crawling out from under planks. —Bruce Cation. Americanism Course Is Job of School The good people who worry for fear the schoolma'mn may leach little Johnny more that he ought to know about the government of Russia might very well take notice that so far the schoolma'am hasn't taught him quite as 'much as he ought to know about the government of the United States. The Ilare-up of the Black Legion is a reflection of many things, but, most of all, it is a reflection on Hie work our public '-schools b.ave been doing. For the most obvious fact about the poor addleiwles who have enrolled in this lion-Hie outfit is thai they simply haven't had even the rudiments of an education. They 'may have gone through the motions, all vig\\l; they may know how to read and write and do modest sums; but what this elementary knowledge is for seems to have escaped them entirely. • Wlial use is it to tench a man to read, if lie employs his knowledge to read Tom Stiwyer-ish oaths by the dark of the moon? .Why teach him to write, if he winds up by signing his name in blood to an agreement to go out' , and paddle som.e beer p^rlojr pint- proctor? . All this simply mean.s that OU 1 ' pub- li& school system hasn't beeii bitting on all six. It has somehow failed to teach a considerable number of people what ,t(ip elements of Americanism really are. • That job ought to be fairly simple. 1 This country is a democracy, dedicated to complete political and religious freedom. That means that whatever may be done iu lands overseas, this country can have no place for; any group that tries to get its way by force. The night rider, tho terrorist, the back-alley schemer who uses the mask and whip to enforce his own notions of good citizenship—they are as out of place here as one of the late czar's Cossacks would be. It is. hardly asking too much to expect that, whatever else our public schools did or did not do, Ihey should make that little lesson slick. Most of _iis had innocently supposed that they did. But evidently there are a good many cases in which they did'not. That isn't the fault of the school- ma'am. She can do only what community sentiment requires; and com- OUT OUR WAY~ SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Movies of Chalk up another achievement in the nation's war on crime—an achievement winch, pfl'icials believe, is fully as important as. the process of linger- printing first used 35 years ago. Devised by Col. H, Nonnan Schwarzkopf, well known superintendent of the New Jersey state police, the new weapon" is motion picture detection of criminals. With the Schwaiv.konf system it is now possible to give 'criminals a "screen lest" in which their mannerisms ' of > walk, posture and speech are recorded—a vast improve- over the lifeless posters which police now use. The Schwarzkopf set-up is to be turned over : lo the U. S. Department of Justice, which contemplates establishing 'a national motion picture library oi v criminals, to supplement the present f'uvjerprinl collection. Such pictures'may even be shown in theatres throughout Hie country. Thus a more 'effective nation-wide system will, in effect, be possible for criminal apprehension. T h e United Stales welcomes that sort of weapon. by Jean Seivwright NEA Service, i ni:rii\ JIRRI; TODAY C1AII, KfKHKTT, xluutr of « l>rlre (or continue u>ilj;n oSertd by u lartfe »llk umnufacturlDx funiimny, come* to \ew York to Hut \iork, Slit It fclrtd—du« to » ulroke of luck—by HADAMU M/.l-l'ITK, yroiirtMor of an ficlu- klvf fthop.

THIS CURIOUS WORLD M William Ferguson Tree'Planter No. 1. Sucking to rectify the ruthless destruction of its forests in past years, Uncle Sain is rapidly becoming the foremost free' planter in the world. That is except tonally- good news when one considers, that this country is practically new at the game. In 10S5, for instance, tho Forest Service's own planting in national fov- esls approximated 225,000,000 acres, more than were phjnled in 1934 by all agencies, federal state and private. This year's plantings will increase the total more than 10 per cent. There are more than 162,000,000 acres of . national forests alone in the United Slates, and tho estimated total forest acreage is more, than 500,000,OQ'O acres. The countries with the biggest forest reserves now include Russia,' Brazil, Canada and tho United States. Europe has long practiced replanting. 11 is gratifying lo note that at last America is becoming conservation conscious. WHALES, LAB3ESTOF ALL ANIMALS. HAVE KEPT SECRET MOST OF THEIR.

It was late Monday afternoon and both girls were coming home from work. "Gorgeous!" Gall told her. "I want to hear all about it," Natalie urged as they entered the club house. "You certainly look pleased about something. Have you had any other excitement?" "I should say I have!" Gail's voice was jubilant. "Madame Lizette couldn't come to the shop today, and I had to run things myself. Madame had an accident— not serious, though, she cut her foot rather badly when she slipped and fell with some glasses in her hnhd. 1 don't think she'll be down for a day or two." Gail smiled as she thought how welt things had. gone' (hat day. Maybe it wasn't just right for her to feel .that way, but she hoped Madame would remain at home for several days. "Well, with that on top of your week-end I don't suppose you'd care to dine wilh rue tonight and lake in a movie?" "Nntalic! You know I'd love to Swedish. Do you thin): you'd like that?" . "I'm sure I would," A short walk brought them tQ their destination, and once again Gail felt as though she had been transported to 'some other 'land. The waitresses were dressed in peasant costume, and the 1 decorations were typically Scandinavian. After they had consulted the menu and given the waiter their order their talk drifted to GaU'f visit at the Searles' home. "You went to school with young Searles' sister, didn't you?" Natalie asked. "Yes. Rosemary was my room- male at school. Dick says she's coming home soon. I'm sure you'd like her. Maybe we can have lunch together some day." "I'd love that. I suppose lots of wealthy girls go to Merrywood Hall." "Yes. I wouldn't have been able to slay alter Dad died if it hadn't been that Miss Cranston was sm old friend of my mother's and she insisted on keeping me there." "I'm sure no one would ever grudge doing anything for you. 1 know I wouldn't." "Thai's sweet of you to say so," answered Gail, wondering if her estimate of Natalie had not been harsh. "You must have felt dreadfully when you found you were penniless," Natalie went on. "Still I should have thought if your father go with you! ask me *w#et of you to WHEN. the-. n^S in the '' later l-'tilalie said, "I .he foyer know a jolly little placo just oR Madison avenue where they serve der licious meals. The cooking is had any paintings they would have brought a good deal." "No, they didn't. At the time my father died, lots of galleries were closed. A friend of . Miss Cranston's told her that pictures which would sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars-in normal times were being given away by artists for just pay for a meal," "Really?" "Yes. 1 know lots about art and artists." Gail smiled as she remembered , her gay, improvident father. The sale of a picture was always ah occasion lor a Celebration T—perhaps a grand dinner with a theater parly atlcnyords, or- in the summer 'a long week-end at some seaside resort. Peter Everett gave little thought to the future! ..''«•*• r PHE waitress served Ihp.m. Then, •^ as she hastened away to attend lo oilier 'customers, Natalie remarked, 'Yve been thinking a lot about you since-we met. How strange it must seem for you to be all alone. I've such heaps of relatives. They make Ime" tired. I wish some of them had never been born!" "Natalie!-.What a dreadful thing to say! -You.don't;know how I envy you. If I had even one liv- I'd be, oh, so happy!"! For an hour the girls dawdled! over their food, comparing their! likes qnd dislikes. As they rose,! Natalie insisted on paying. Galll renionslrated, but the other girlf paid the check.• ' A's they approached the moviq theater, Nalslte suddenly claimed, "There's someone you should know^-Rtta Cordell. She's! fashion editor of one of the news-f papers." Hurrying after her, Na-1 lalie called. "Rita!" "Oh, hello, Natalie!" "I want you to meet the winnea of the John S. Larne prize—Gail Eyerett. She's Madame Lizgtte'l new designer." .: "Oh, I'm, delighted. It was c a, few days ajo that I asked Mr| Larne about the pvije winner. II said he understood a society girl had won it and probably shf wouldn't do anything further wit!] her att." "I'm a working girl," Gail anl swered. "I called at Mr. Laine'l office but he was in the south, si I just went ahead and got thil job." "I'm due at Lizetle's some • soon. Maybe'she'll let me h one of your designs for my coll urnn.

And you kno.w'if you wail to get ahead you've got to cash il on all the publicity you can gel Grab it every lime. Take thrf from someone who knows." "I guess you're right," Gail arj swered, remembering somcthin! Derek had said. Then, in a burl of confidence, she added, "I'rn'onl a babe when it comes to the bus| ness end of things.
