States Arc Confined by Own Sovereignty Apparwilly the slates of Uiis union arc to be saved from the oncroitcli- iiients of federal power whcLhcr they like it or iiot. The supreme court decision throwing' out the municipal bankruptcy net enshrines the sovereignty of the states in a higher sphere of untouchnhility Hum tlic states themselves are likely to want. This set, it is worth remembering, did not involve any nulicnl new conception of the function of govcrn- 'menl, as did such measures as the NRA and the A A A. It WHS not purl of an attempt to erect a new philosophy of government. It was simply a.mcuns by which locn) units were to be rescued from an intolerable .linancial BilUflliOll. At the beginning of 1!)3<I, slightly more than 2,000 cities, counties, and oilier political subdivisions were in default on their bonds. The face value , of the bonds in default run to ;l|i- proximately a billion dullar.s; Hie governmental units involved were sen tiered across <11 states. Somelhinjr had to be done. The debtors could raise no more money, and the creditors could coillecl no more. A creditor could, indeed, go to court and j:el a mandamus writ ordering the debtor to tux, but where the tax values were exhausted—us was: often the case —Uiis was a meaningless gesture. The state legislatures/could .jjJYjJjr.iJ.P..: help. Under (he Constitution they can fa pafs no laws" impiiiringptlfe'obligation of existing contracts, -A state insol- \ency act, therefore, could do nothing to obligations already incurred. Unless the federal government could help, IIQ one could. . So Congress passed the municipal bankruptcy act. This provided 'that a local unit of government which was in default could readjust its debt to its • capacity to pay, under very definite limitations. It had to have the consent of. two- thirds of its creditor,-!; it had to have the approval of a federal judge; and it had lo have Ihe consent of the state in which il was situated. This "is the law. which the supreme court has just nullified, on .the ground that il is an infringement on state sovereignly. Behold, now, the odd tangle in which the ruling leaves us. Here was a case in which the stales, under the Constitution, were specifically prevented from acting. The action provided for in the law could be taken only with the specilic consent of tbe states involved. And yet the law is thrown out on the ground that it impairs state sovereignty. Chief Justice Hughes has remarked tli;',l the Constitution is what the judges .say it js. The judges have spoken, in this case, to the effect that slate .sovereignty is a higher and holier thing than the states themselves had supposed or desired; it thing which, in this case, looks remarkably like a slrait-jucket. Too Young lo Drive Headlining the list of traffic • fatalities recently was the .collision of an automobile with a lumber truck near Richmond, Va. Six were lulled. That alone was catastrophic, btil the accidenl was notable for another fact—that all occupants of the wrecked automobile were under 21. It was a case illustrating a vital defect in the regulations of many stales that permit youngsters to drive without either examination or certification. This is not to say that persons under 21 should nol drive. But the Virginia accident certainly represents one angle of today's traffic (problem. Records of every stale aUi'ib'nlc a large number of accidents to adolescent drivers. Either existing statutes should observed or' a new check devised eliminate this ha/ard. be to Russia Swings Back Probably the most interesting news that has come oul of Soviet Kussia in many months is life announcement that henceforth there will bu no discrimination against former Cxarisls, merchants, and kulaks in the matter of employment. 1 In the early days of the Soviet regime, these groups sufl'ercd many indignities, and until now have continued to bear the burden of the New Kus- ^sio's luUred for the .old order. '"'Any' departure from" tin's "sftiiie bf •affair^ .therefore; is Jmpor'l ant's But il is riot altogether surprising. , The Soviet rule is more and more inclined, it appears; toward democratic principles. Russia learned, in its early days of. revolution and regeneration, thai there is/.iiced 'for every class of society, as wilncss the attitude of its intelligensin.. And now comes recognition of the merchants and the kulaks as a vital class in the'country's social structure. Russia, if is clear, is swinging i,;,ck from Communism toward the original aims of state socialism, because it has learned that governments are, after all, only the people composite.

NOW (i() ON WITH TUB STOIIY CHAPTER XIV morning, Miss Everett," exclaimed. Miss Carolie next morning. "I euess you'll have to carry on alone ngain today, for Madame can't come down. If there's anything I can do to help you, jusl Id me know. Beller keep right on wilh Uie models for the 'Prc-Holiday Parade'." "All right," Gail said as she on Friday afternoon. Perhaps the finisher.sensed what.was in the girl's mind, for she said, "You mustn't mind Ariadne. You sec, Madame promised her that she'd give her a chance to d« some designing. She never has and that's ivhy Ariadne is so disagreeable," "So that explains it! Well, I'll see if I can't do something about that." But at that moment Llta entered. "Hila Cordcjl's In the showroom and Miss Carolie' says for you lo show her some of the fashion show styles. 1( she wants photographs, ask her to tell you which models she can use , arid we'll have the pictures made lor her." "All right, Lita. I'll be there in a minute," Gnil said. * * * MOMENT later she went'for- ward to !/ieet the newspaper fashion editor. "How do you do, Miss Everett," Rita Cordell said. "I hear Madame !.,i7.elle's had quite a nasty accident" "Yes," Gail replied, "but I think surely by next week she'll be able to come back again. I'll have Clylie slip on some of the things hurried to her desk. But as soon us she had tilings started for Hie day she stepped into the telephone booth and called -Derek. 7»'nere was no answer. She tried ;igaln at noon, and still later on her way home, but no gay voice came to her over the wire. She called again the next day, and tlie one after thai, but sltll Ihere was no reply. Gail could not understand it. But throughout the week Gail had little time to think of her own affairs, for Madame's injuries had proved more serious than she had first thought and the burden of the work rested on Gail. One atlernoon Madame Lizelte sent for her to come to the aparlment with Ariadne so that she might give her special instructions about some of the models. Gail had gone with decided mis- glvings, for Ariadne had been far rrom helpful. The moment Gail's back was turned Ariadne would slip from the filling, room, anc .lime as well as .patience had to be waslcd hunting for her. Gail wondered about this as she directed Toinellc with her work we've been making for our Trc- lloliday Parade'!" For the next half hour the ashion editor studied the new jowns. Then she said, "I rnusl :ongratulate you, Miss Everelt Your Ihings are lovely. I'd like to use lhal green sport ensemble ant he little tea dance frock on my page." "All right, Miss Carolie is hav- ng photographs made and she'll send them to you." "Oil, thanks..; Remember i. .here's anything I can do for you at any time, don't hesitajc to cal oil me." Gail ate a hurried dinner at the clubhouse Hint evening and \vab ready to leave when she ran into Malalie in the hall. been I've where have' you keeping yourself, Gail? knocked at your door till my knuckles arc skinned!" "I've.been working laic. Madame's still away. If she gets back nexl week, lei's make a night of it Monday." "Why not tonight?" questioned Natalie. "Sorry, I can't make .it. I'm going to the library to look up some special period costumes." "We!J, don't work too hard!' Natalie' was annoyed. She had counted on having Gail's company whenever she wished it, ; for lt sbe diss Everett... call for Miss Gall Everelt." Quickly she hurried toward him. I 'Miss Everett's just stopped out- loors. If you rush you may catch I er." A moment later she saw Gail enter.the foyer with Ihe bellhop. -Jalalie stepped into the elevator, '.ven if she did want to know •ho was calling Gail, she couldn't • very well question her now. * * » • 'AIL enlercd the .booth, and satd ovar the telephone, "Do you wish to speak lo Gail Everett?" "You bet I do/ 1 came Ihe vibrant voice of Derek Jiargreaves. "But irst.J want to apologize for not [ aking you to the Ferrara Gallery. J was called out of town unox- : pcctedly, and didn't have a mo- nienl lo wrile you. I hope you'll forgivt me." "Oh, that's all rijjhll" Gail's jlj heart was bcp.Ung happily as she 11 answered. "I tried lo get you the next day. 1 was out with one of the girls that evening and we' didn't get home un'ij alter mid-|N night. I thouaht thaVv/as too later then to phone." "Never worry about that. l'in/J quite accustomed lo late ca|ls Dul now that I've found you ' want to know i£ you'll come with me to a receplion at Mrs. Morton's.

I'll tell you alljB about things Sunday." Wilh aJil word of goodby Gail hung up the|] receiver. When she reached Ihe library her Ihoughts were in a whirl. Derek wanted her to meet the famous Mi". Morton. They were going lo her gorgeous duplex. apartmenl on i\rk avenue. She ?ot Ihe books on costume design iind made a few sketches, but she could nol conccr.trale on her work, As she walked back to Hie club- .louse. she fell as though she was ivatking on air.
