Mickey Rooney another aurprise arrival. His first date was with Gloria De Haven, and maybe this is serious after all. Some of Mickey's pals are betting he and Gloria will marry no later than the finish of his new training course In OUR SCHOOLS SERVE DEMOCRACY. With the opening of the schools of Vermillion County near, it might be well for parents and teachers to do a little thinking about the pupils that present a problem to both of them. Children going to a school system should not be regarded as raw material to be subjected to certain definite processes in the expectation that the finished product can be certain or standardized. Factors of inheritance and environment com bine to make each child a special subject Horse Made Him Landlord Actor Victor Moore had this explanation for turning up in Jackson Heights, N. Y at the controls of a steam shnvi; "Some years ago a former actor turned real estate broker and tried to sell me a piece of land. 1 wasn't much interested, but he told me he had a real tip on a race horse. He said he'd let me in if I'd promise that if I won I'd use the money for a down payment on the lot. I did. He did. The horse did. So I did, and now we're building a bus terminal on it." Moore kept his gloves on just long enough to move one shovelful of dirt requiring, more or less, individual treatment. . I . . .

TWK.NTV YKAIM AtH TOItAV : teachers to take a rough specimen of un- trained humanity and develop it into a polished human being are looking for a : good deal. They must not expect the school to take the place of the home and the church. The guidance that a teacher can give to a pupil is valuable and necessary but it should not replace entirely all function of parents. Teachers, on the other hand, facing a mass of little human beings in their classrooms, should not overlook the importance 'of identifying each pupil as a separate ; and distinct human entity. The god teacher is not a mass-worker. : There must be the recognition of the peculiar difficulties that confront each student, together with an intelligent tolerance for the child, if the greatest improvement in the individual is to be secured. Naturally, we are very proud of the .school system in this community. Along "with millions of other Americans we thoroughly endorse the common schools which offer educational opportunity to all children upon practically equal terms. The schoolhouse, in our opinion, is the bulwark of democratic processes, which should be understood, respected and observed by officials and teachers, as well as by students.

"Matthew, are we al ways going to bicker, and then kiss and make up?" "Who's bickering?" he inquired. "I never do! But you're always springing little surprises." "So it's mv fault?" "What is?" he asked blankly. "What is this all about anyway?" Judith answered, "I give up." "Good," said Matthew. "Then suppose you wire or write Cousin Marion for the name of the doctor, if you don't already know it, and let me write him myself. Well soon get to the bottom of this." Judith went over to the fireplace, and declared firmly, "I'm going; west, Matthew, as soon as possible." "Youll only scars your moths to death." "No, I won't It's her birthday, very soon.

"You're not asking," he remarked; "you're telling me!" Judith slid off his knees and stood up, looking down at him as he leaned back against a corner of the big couch. "All right," she said, "then I'm telling you. Suppose it was Mary . . . three thousand miles away . . . and she was ill? Wouldn't you take the first plane out?" "Of course' he agreed, "if I was sure "How could you be sure unless . . .?" She broke off in exasperation. She said hotly, "You're the most selfish man I ever" "Selfish!" Matthew repeated, astonished, "Selfish because I don't want you to go away from me? Most women would be flattered. A lot of husbands would be enchanted with the prospect of a marital vacation." He grinned at her, his ill humor evaporating. "You're so pretty. Come here and kiss me," he ordered. Judith leaned over and touched her lips briefly to his. He complained, "That's no kind of kiss," and pulled her down beside him.

It is interesting, therefore, to report that etatisticians of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company say that figures show that "the family continues to remain the ' firm foundation of our social structure". The experts point out that in normal ' times three-quarters of our families consist of a husband and wife, living together, ; either with or without children. Families broken by the death of the husband or wife amount to one-eighth of the total and only one-twentieth of our families have been broken by divorce or separation. NO CRUSADE. The newspapers generally are united in the demand for world-wide freedom of expression and communication. The phrase is somewhat general. It probably means, to most newspaper men, the right to go anywhere, investigate anything and send any news or comment without interference. We presume that it does not include a demand that external pressure be applied to backward countries in order to create freedoms within other lands. While we are convinced that liberty-loving peoples should have freedom of expression everywhere, we are not inclined to institute a ; world-wide crusade, to be backed by force, if necessary, to establish this freedom in ' foreign countries.
