Will England Throttle Her Press for Italy Either' Great Britain's nmlws.s-ador to 1 Rome is engaging iiv somn fanciful (liplomatifc sfrii'raishmg with Uie Italian 1 foreign minister or else live British empire is prepared (o K" nnidi further tliiin any one lias anticipated in negotiating a truce with Italy. Cable reporlK from London lell of a meeting between tho Earl of Perth and Count Galenx'/.o Ciano in which three principal topics of an Anglo-Italian accord were discussed. The third of tlie^e was given as: "Immediate cessation of anti-Italian propaganda in the British press in return for which Italy will guarantee not to include anli-I5ritish propaganda in its powerful Bari radio station broadcasts." I(: is easy enough for Italy to proiu- IFC her end of thai kind of an agreement. But it comes as considerable of a shock to think of England contemplating "cessation of anti-Italian propaganda in the British press." Anti-Kalian propaganda is nn ill- inclusive phrase that must be construed lo cover news stories, editorial comment;;, private letters lo the press and any printed matter in any form which would reflect the Italian government, people or officials. Freedom of the press is an actual liberty in Great Britain, ju'st as it Kas always been in (lie United States: The government exercises no censorship, official or otherwise, over'the new.; or editorial policies of English newspapers. In the United States, when German diplomatic offices protested verbal onslaughts against the Hitler government by New York's Mayor LaGimrdia, Sec- rotary of Stale Hull informed Germany that this was a matter of freedom of speech. He further said that for newspapers to print LaGnardia's Utterances was tradtioiwl freedom of the press and positively not a mailer for government, interference. For (ho secretary of stale lo ever, snggr-sl to 'U. S. newspapers what they should or should not print was unthinkable. English newspapers have been just as uninhibited. Their policies IIMVO been'.affected by agreements amon.'j newspaper publishers, but not Sy official pressure. Is England, (hen, K ,>; nK i () j 0 ; n i (a | v (and Germany, Rumania, Japi'ii, Turkey) in creating a government controlled press that prints what it is told and omits what it is told? It's hard to believe that. Tim English people fought long and bitterly for (heir liberties. They'll light just as long and hard before giving them up. Lord Perth must have hail his tongue in his check when thai proposal was discussed. (jnion Big One phase of the wave of union or- gani/alion that lias been sweeping the country has largely »;scapuil notice. That is ihe union bu.sino.s.-> as a business. It is getting to be a big one. A recent estimate was that during the year 1037 the C. f. 0. and tho A. l'\ of L. took in and .spent approximately $85,000,000, with about 70,000 people employed, mostly professional oi' anil clerical help. The estimate may nol be accurate, but it roll eels an un- ijiie.s Honed tendency. Thai means that .simply as a business, unionism already has animal revenues greater than sales volume in the jewelry, typewriter, hat, or glove industries. The United Mine Worker.', alone had more than $2,000,000 on hand at last report. Many and many a "little business" isn't as big as that. There is a certain humor in watching organized labor, which has railed for years at "big business," itself growing gradually into a big business of its own. Idleness And Crime There has long licen a suspicion that liecially when it was coupled with olh- pecially when it was iouplcd with other old offenders—like bad companions and lack of proper homo influence. But now idleness marches to the head of the class as tho chief reason for crime, according In Warden Lewis K. Lawcs, of Sing Sing prison. Some year's ago gambling headed the causu- of-crime list. Liquor came secondary and immorality third. Liquor and immorality arc still holding their places, but gambling i s way down the line ami idleness lakes its place. Warden Lawcs blames the depression and points to the result. He said: "There are more offenders getting into difficulty in tough times than when limes are good. That's why the proportion of first offenders in prison is increasing lately." The warden didn't acid what he might have: that most of Ilicsc first offenders would have been both honest and at liberty if they had been able to find jobs. Idleness will always be productive of crime, in just about -the direct proportion that men can't get work.

Connie did iiul rend nuy further CHAPTER XII CONSTANCE did not read beyond that first sentence. H seemed to her hours before she was able to look up and say in a voice that sounded reasonably like tier own, "1 didn't know there was any one naive enough to buy this comic sheet. The last I heard they were drumming up publicity by paying people to sue (hem for libel." But she knew they had seen her face in thnt first moment. When she slipped out of the slore Hint night, a man stepped from a parked car, hastily threw away a claret, ami stood in her path. Under the entrance light, liis 1 uncovered head shone with copper lights. "Are you weeping on any one's shoulder tonight?" he asked. "Go .away," said Constance. "The Inst time I talked to you I got my hands slapped. We do not associate with the male relatives of our customers." "There aren't any customers in my family any more," Dr. Mark Rogers said with a brief smile. "We spent all our money the other day— thanks to yon." He held the car door open. "Please get in," he suggested. "Id like (o talk to you." ** t » ^ELL, well; Constance thought. Just like thai! . , . But, after all, why not? (She thought of Deie!>.) He probably only wants to take my temperature or make sure I'm getting plenty" of. sleep. As she hesitated, she was vastly amused to see him take out his watch and glance at it hastily. "Don't let me keep you," she said with malice, "if .someone is choking to death or something. But I thought you were on a vacation now." "It's no vacation now." He was definitely not the philandering type of male, lie looked worried and u little embarrassed. "I— but we'll talk a b ot ,t that Jatcr. I'm counting on a good meal to put you into of say?' With a flicker of a smile Do finished dryly, "i want to park you somewhere where you'll feel thai you have the protection of sane human beings when you decide that I've gone crazy." After a brict hesitation Constance laughed in spite of herself. He looked so desperately in earnest, and at the same lime so uncomfortably aware that lie must look ridiculous. "All right," she said. "I shouldn't be human it I weren't curious." When they were settled at a table, and Di-. Rogers had ordered —sidecars, blue points, planked steak with mushrooms and fresh asparagus, a satad, an ice, and coffee—he said, with a crooked little smile, "Thank God the orchestra s at Ihe other end of the room. I couldn't do Ibis ( 0 music wiih- out making it sound as melodramatic us it unquestionably is. ... Did anyone ever tell you," he demanded abruptly, "(hat you look like Camilla Wynne?" "Why, yes," Constance admitted after a bewildered pause. "But 1 never felt inordinately set up about it." "Ever seen her—on the screen, I mean?" "And heard her." On a mischievous impulse Constance leaned an elbow languorously on (he table, i-estcd her chin on her palm, and looking up at him under fluttering lids, said in a throaty, breathless voice, "I understand. Doctor. You want me to lell him n bedtime story. . . But is it really kind? Sometime, you know, he's bound to wake up— ind tha^ hurts I know. That's" —she smiled bravely, brushed away an unshed tear, and finished on a tremulous note—"that's one of the things you have taught me." * t * Tf/ORDS, gesture, and intonation were lifted bcdily from one of Camilla Wynne's most popular impersonations—Ihe role of the nurse in "A Doctor's Best Friend." The man across the table gave such a whotc-hearled shout of delight that Constance could not help warming toward him. "I say," he demanded, "how long could you keep Iliat up?" "Until you screamed for help," Conslancc said. "Since my friends discovered the fatal resemblance, it's been rny one and only parlor trick. . . . Why?" "Because Camilla Wynne got herself: knocked out in an automobile crash this morning. That's what this is all about." He had sobered so abruptly that Constance sold after a incredulous silence, moment of 'You're not , v/c by any. chance suggesting that be raw; l tcaspoonful cod liver til.

Cuba To Honor American For Fruit Growing HAVANA (UP) — Thomas R. Towns, 74 - year - old American farmer who has been growing citrus fruit in Cuba for 38 years, is to be honored by tlie Cuban government. Secretary of Stale Juan J. Ramos is to confer upon Towns the order of Carles Manuel de Ccspc:lcs, in recognition of Towns' work in agriculture and especially for Ins success in producing the "Washington Sport" navel orange. Towns for many years has aided the citrus industry in Cuba by giving lectures en citrus cultivation at agricultural schools. Towns was raising citrus fruit near Jacksonville, Fla., in 1831 OUR BOARDING HOUSE double for Ihe /enwte folale, are you? I thought you were a physician, not a . . ." "If you want to check up on me, go lo the telephone and call the Fort Wayne Hospital," he told her with deadly earnestness. "1 don't, belong in this part of the country, but they know me there. ... On second thought, perhaps I'd better drive you around to the hospital. We'll just about have time." * * * ^ CONSTANCE said weak if i "You're the most incredible J 1 man I ever met. But I admit, I'm still curious." "I'm a litlle hazy about some ol the. details, myself. J got them over long distance from California. You see, the driver of Ihe car in which Camilla Wynne was riding was the EOJI of u patient of mine. Miss Wynne is not badly hurt, I understand. But the boy—welt, aside from oilier dcsperale injuries, he is on the verge of a complete nervous collapse. You sec, he's in love with Miss Wynne, and lie's convinced that he lulled her. Only the sight of her—or someone he can be persuaded to take for her—will pull him through the immediate nervous crisis, and give him a chance for his life. . . . And Miss Wynne is flat an her back for several days, at least. That's where you come in." "Oh, do I?" Constance wondered if she were dreaming. "It was so clearly indicated thai I had my hotel order reservations for both of us on the 8:30 plane for Los Angeles." "You're suggesting that I set . out with you—an almost complete, -•» stranger—in an horn- and a half] %'• to fly to California?" ' "Exactly that. ... All right- now shout for the police." While slie was still searching for words, u party oE four men passed their lablc. One of them checked liis steps, turned, and called pleas- "mlly, "Good evening, Dr. Rogers. Run in and see me again before you leave town, won't you'.' I nave a patient I'd like to—why, sood evening, Miss Maidwell—or t should say—" at something he must have seen in Constance's 'ace, ho broke off, and finishing a little awkwardly, "Well, glad to have seen you,"-hurried after his companions. 'Know him?" Mark Rogers iskcd. "I ought to. He's Dr. Ardmore, my physician," Constance said.. .. She thought, "He started to call me Mrs. Manthon." •,'"••••• ; "May we consider that I am roperly identified, oh siiiiii -IP-call nm back?" the man'opposite her asked.

Iti' 1000 he visited Cuba and a short time later established a. citrus nursery on the Isle of pines. After four .years there he move;! to Holguln, in Oriente province, where lie has grown citrus since. Although Towns has made a nicdest fortune in Ihe citrus industry, he lives much in the fashion of an ordinary Cuban farmer dressing most of the time in overalls. "I'm just a Yankee farmer." he said. "I am very happy here, however, and if i had my life to live over again I'd live all of it hi Cuba." Girls React Faster BERKELEY, Cal.
