' that "the gradual removal of tariff barriers, often a cloak for mon opoly, cannot be logically resisted by those who decry government intervention in business." It reminds those who object to Mr. Hull s trade treaties that a few bumper crops of wheat, hogs and cotton with no recover)' of foreign niaikets to absorb them, will again create the demand lhat the government protect farm prices effectively. In essence, its argument is thai the nation should develop for--itin markets to absorb domestic surpluses of agriculture. Moreover, it seems fair that if the government is to get out of business in one field or production, it should also move out of other spheres. tbe l'oatnfllre at Clinton.

"The 'phone message relayed to us by the press agent, Mr. Gutman, was that you were sick in bed." . . , , "And o I was," h said quickly, smiling in a deprecating sort of way, as though ashamed of his indisposition. "A touch of ptomaine that's been threatening for several days, as a matter of fact But Falconer called me and wanted me on the set early this afternoon. Needs must" he shrugged in a familiar gesture "when the devil or a director drivea one!" Before Diana could say that they had been on tha Falconer set in Ihe early afternoon, and had seen no signs of him, Genevieve broke in. Her blue eyes sparkled with a touch of malice, as she said, archly: "Your ossislaat waa her when we arrived. As you sea, she kindly mixed soma excellent cocktails for us." For a second he looked nonplussed, then he said quickly: "Thai's swell! I could do with a tonic. I still feel wonky. Excuse me while I fetch a glass from the bathroom." Diana finished her cocktail hastily while he was out of the room. She thought: "For heaven's sake, sparkle, can't you? Don't let him think you're peeved! Don't be small-minded!" But for the life of her she could not keep from questioning him. although ahe knew it was a tactical mistake, because something inside her Uiat was hurting urged her to get to the bottom of his delays.

"I told hr I didn't want any calls CHAPTER XVI "So nice nt Mr. Gutman to devote his whole afternoon to us, l:-ile-huntinit and all. And then bringing us here. I do call it kind of htm. Genevieve." "That remains lo be seen when Roger arrives," Genevieve sipped her cocktail with tight and disapproving lips. She added darkly: "Hi'hetnianism can be twerdone." As tha minutes slipped by, and t;!l no Koirer, Diana's mood changed. He was treating them cavalierly. He had sent a message to her via brrnie Gytman lhat she telephone him this evening. Previous to that, he had made a dinner engagement with them, by letter. She glanced al her little neHst-watrh. No Roger, and it was almost seven now ! Genevieve had embarked on her second cocktail. The first one had made her feel better, removed her fatigue. It was not Genevieve now who was indignant with Roger. It Diana. A clock somewhere outside ;'hin.ed seven times. "Genevieve don't you think we'd better be going? Don't you think it seems a bit undignified for us to tav on up here?" she ventured. Rut Genevieve was too comfortable in her easy chair. The second cocktail was doing its work. "Isn't this Hollywood whose wavs are not our ways, as you were just telling me, Diana?" she asked with faint irony. "Besides, where do w-e go from here, and who is to take us to dinner, or back to the bungalow? I didn't notice any taxi-cabs around Hollywood. Who's to take us back to our mountain-top?" There are plenty of taxis. We can 'phone for one." "Better pick up the 'phone and ask that woman at the desk if Roger hasn't telephoned to ret your message." Diana communicated with the desk. "Yeh, Mr. Dexter did call up a half-hour ago. I forgot you'd gone upstairs. Yeh, I tojd him there wasn't any message." came the drawling voice from tha lobby. "If he calls again, or when he ?omes in, tell him that Miss Dar-ington and her mother are here." But before Diana was at the end if her sentence, the indefatigable -eader of movia magazines had lung up. Kxannerated, she again su-fested leaving. But Genevieve was obstinate now. "You dragged me here on a wild gooaa chase, my dear. We'll wait till your wild goose comes home." Thera wae nothing to do but fortify herself with one of Bebe's cocktails and make the best of it, Diana decided. As the room was chilly, and Genevieve had a cough, ahe lit the gas fire in the ornate little grate. "Switch on a lamp or two," her mother aaid, "or he'll be walking in here and thinking he aees two Bebe's instead of one !" She waa not usually facetious, but the cocktails were very potent. Diana drank her. But her depression remained. In tha few short weeks aince she had last aeen him at Regina's debut, would she find Roger altered? Be arrived at ten minutes after seven, full of apologies. He had been kept lata at the studio. He had "phoned his hotel several times to know if there had been any message from them, but the fool of a woman at the desk had balled things up, as usual, and what could one do about it? In tha bright yellow light that spilled from the shaded lamps, Roger thought Diana looked unnaturally pale for one whom ahe had last aeen deeply tanned. He looked sick. "Were yoc at tha studios?" she nut through. I was absolutely dirity, Diana. I had a head like a balloon. But had I known that it was you, my dear " He broke off. She was asking herself how it was that Mr. Falconer had auc- 1 II call ior you snu un there," he suggested. Her spirits lifted. She waa to sea lots of Roger. Why fear rivals? Forget about Bebe. Forget about these beautiful platinum-blonda creatures that kept glancing over at their table, and whispering to on another, as though discussing him or her or both of them. They were half way through dinner when a disturbing thing happened. A red-headed girl had come in with a thin, dark escort, and as she passed their table that was near the door, she leaned toward Roger for a moment, whispering eibi-lantly : ".Some party last night, wasn't it?" Diana pretended not to have heard. But Genevieve, stimulated by th cocktails, was less tactful. "So (hat was the reason you were hnrg de combat this morning, Roger?" she challenged him archly. Having picked up a precarious living for Diana and herself these last few years, via the business world and the commission racket, Genevieve was no fool where men were concerned. An aristocrat she might be, but that didn't prevent her putting two and two together, vulgarly speaking. For the past hour she bad been wondering if it would be worth their while to continue on the same intimate term with this young man whose money hitherto had doubtless covered a multitude of peccadilloes . . . one could excuse them in th heir to millions . . . but how much was left of that colossal fortune? And what sort of a life was Roger living in the movie city now? Then and there, Genevieve made op her mind that she would thoroughly investigate Roger's financial position. Diana thought herself In love with him. But at eighteen, one expected sehool-girl infatuations. They could be checked, if necessary. Knowing that Genevieve had overheard that fool of a red-haired woman, and probably Diana, for all her well-bred silence, had also heard th phrase: "Some party!" Roger said nonchalantly: "You'll find that asinine remark everywhere in Hollywood, referring to on drink or gallons of them I As a matter of fact, Z waa working some designs out at Huntington's last evening he's one of tbe best scenic artists in the colony and a peach of a good fellow when around tea o'clock we were interrupted by a bunch of giddy goats who, according to th Hollywood custom, think every home out here is a likely spot for a drink. This particularly, because they were already pretty 'high', when they arrived. Huntington foolishly but generously gave them the run of his cellar. I cleared out before eleven, and, believe it or not, still on the wagon !" "Which you're making amends for now," supplemented Genevieve tartly. Hypocrite she eould not bear, she told herself. She simply didn t believe Roger, and hoped that Diana didnt, either. No child of hers could be a complete idiot. Although Diana tried to keep up a run of cheerful conversation, the dinner that should have been so festive was something of a failure. Roger, it wae obvious, was suffering from a hangover which the cocktails did little to remove. (T Be Continued) OwimM, 1. aa fmtmm SmSlMt. U ceeded in reaching him? He saw the query In her eye. He said : "Of THE DAILY CLINTONIAN'S PLATFORM: 1 To further every inlerett of Parke and VermiUion counlie. 2 To airt the revival of the Indiana coal mining induarry. S.'

HARDLY TO BE EXPECTED The indisciiminate sale of mac hine guns and sawed off shot guns to criminals aroused the public some months ago and a law was passed, requiring the registration of such sales. This, however, didn't settle the problem. For the 12 months ending June 30lh. last, only one weapon was registered. After all. you can hardly expect a gangster, buying a machine gun, to come in. be fingerprinted and pay a $200 tax on his purchase, can you? BUSINESS INTERFERENCE American citizens who are inclined to object to government intervention into business affairs mi-ht stop long enough to ask themselves why the government thought it necessary to take a hand in the affairs of business and agriculture in 1933. Now that the election is over, it ought to be possible to look into the past without prejudice and to realize that even the NRA. in its original form, was sponsored by many manufacturers to end "excessive competition" and that it v. as looked to to maintain prices at a profitable level. Of course, the greatest example of government intervention into business is the tariff, set up lo aid manufacturing industries and extended to prohibit imports to compete with their native products. Naturally, once the government undertakes to protect business, it must also assume the problem of protecting labor and for years the dominant political combination in this country was that of business and labor. In recent years, the nation has witnessed an amazing extension of this ideal of government into the fields of agriculture, with the government attempting to give the farmers of the country what has been termed "parity" with industiy. For years, farmers have been compelled to sell their products in a maiket dominated by world prices and to buy their necessities in a market with prices boosted by the favors extended to business. We can understand the position of those who favor the participation of government into the affairs of business, labor and agriculture and also the attitude of those who demand the entire withdrawal of government from any such activities. We cannot understand, however, the attitude of those who insist upon favors for business and object to those extended to labor and farmers, or the attitude of those who want labor to get everything possible and business and farmers to be left out. and the attitude of farmers who want government bounties but would abolish the tariff for business and the laws to protect labor. . It is for this reason that the Foreign Policy association declares. course, you understand it s an unwritten law that whether one's on one's death-bed, or the roof's fallen all calls from one's studio must be nut through on the dot!" v. 14. at the Methodist pa.'soii-ace In Newport.

Diana accepted that explanation, telling herself they had erred in the Art Department when they nad informed her that Roger had not been in, nor was expected till tomorrow morning. Perhaps he hadn't gone near the Art Department? Perhaps he had worked on the Falconer set through the entire afternoon?

With the Hollywood code that it was per fectly ethical to snatch anyones beau that "if you could take it, you could give it" Diana somehow felt uneasy about Roger who was so outstandingly good-looking and attractive.
