"See that girl over there," she said " the one on the magazine cover?" looy saw tne one she meant. : It was a reoroduetion of n mini- photograph, showing a dark hair- ..rl ,li, l itl ..nll...

"She's leaving next week for Hollywood," the other said. "That's what I call getting a break. Betty deserved it, though. She's a "peach. We've worked to-gcther on lots of jobs. All the turlios have been crazy about Betty since color photography came in. That's what she's going' to do in Hollywood riiake color movies." .

It renders the merchandising of liquor a business that should, as far as practicable, b suppressed by means of education and exhortation. Such education and exhortation cannot be expect ed from persons or private groups who profit by sale of liquor. On the contrary, such persons and groups have demonstrated in the past as well as at present that I hey are not to be trusted with Jie liquor business- Legislation failed to accomplish the desired end. The evil cannot be wiped out overnight by a Experience has shown that elimination of the liquor business can come only via a gradual and evolutionary mi'ement. To place liquor under private control would only thwart such a movement. The attack on the Oregon state liquor control system is not en tirely unjustified. The chief trouble with the liquor business today is that it has been restored already in part to private hands. The Oregon law, while superior to those of most other states, and generally recognized as so, does not go far enough. The manu facture, as well as the sale of liquor, should be taken from pri vate hands. Much as one may abhor govern ment business, one much consider the liquor business as apart from other private enterprise. 11 is one which requires separate and distinct treatment. In that light, gov ernment in business takes on a different hue. The liquor business should be horn entirely of the element of promotion. Meanwhile the popu lace should bo generally and re peatedly advised of the deleterious effects of excessive drinking. Only if the manufacture and sale of liquor Is unattended by profit or other reward to the manufacturer and retailer can the evils of business be minimized. This can be accomplished only by putting tho entire business in the hands of government. . Distasteful as this may be to the ardent anti-liquor group, It is in the best interests of society und should be, until the problem is otherwise solved, brought to pass. The president has named an economy board. This is the best news that has come out of Wash- ngton in a long time, though if the board is of soft wood it may not avail against the axes of those legions who would gorge them selves ut the public trough. At Salem it is again demonstrat- d that a gun in the hands of a 13-year-old boy is always a poten tial messenger of death. How many people must be killed by these unmanned weapons before parents will realize that such toys are dangerous? Six states are swept by dusl storms, says a news item. Six states are swept by housewives, says male intuition. Hv I. S. Klein CKUlorS tnlk of a iH'njtosrt, muv lNiio of 1'. S. iHictiiRo Mimii. liM! bct'H imitially (mtirmiHl by .''uMUrltt.'

The Democrat-Herald Publishing Co.. In, Independent Afternoon Newetiaiw-' address M. C. Mownsen Co., National Adver tising Representative!. NOTHING TO GO BY Two boys escaped from the slate industrial school at Woodtourn Saturday night, stole a car, came to Albany, stole gasoline from service station operator, held up a local resident at the point of a gun, and raced on to Eutieni where they worn soon caught. It was found then that the gun, fully loaded, had also been stolen by the youths, who obviously intended to use it. Had these boys been a little more adroit they might have gotten away. They might have shot their way out of Eugene, or, had they been intercepted by a lone officer, en route, they might have slain him and fled without being apprehended. When police were informed by the state school authorities of the escape, they secured only meagre descriptions of the pair. It was revealed that no finger prints, no photographs and few Bertilllon descriptions of Industrial school inmates are taken. , Many youths at that institution are near maturity. Some of them are already hardened criminals, just too young, sometimes only by a month oh so, .to be committed to the state prison, though they may have committed felonies. At large these youths are ns menacing to society as many convicts would be. Many youths arc now wandering about the country. It would be impracticable to round them all up when a crime Is committer!. But even if this should be done, with only general descriptions to guide them, officers could only with difficulty and rarity detect the perpetrator. If they had access to finger prints and photographs their task would be much easier. As it happened the twd boys who operated here Saturday night did not kill anyone, and were caught before they had gone far. Nevertheless they were potential murderers. They had the means, and probably the inclination to kill If they had need or opportunity. That they did not is creditable only to providence. That they were apprehended was due largely to chance.' Some time fate will not be sti kind to the side of the law. Why should not some precautions be taken at the industrial school as are in vogue at the stale prison? IIOJI18 il'IN. NOT HOME RI M- Should Oregon adopt the program advanced by the so-miled home rule group that is endeavoring to take the liquor business out of the hands of the slate it would take a step bacUSvard. The home rulers contend that the state sohuld not be engaged In a commercial enterprise, and that the liquor business should be restored to private hands that those engaged in It might enjoy the profits. As for the contention that democratic government should not be engaged in private business, the home rulers arc right as this principle affects legitimate mmmcr-cial enterprises, but as it affects the liquor business they are entirely wrong. Fundamentally the liquor business is Illegitimate. It involves manufacture and sale of an article thut has no economic value and that is detrimental, rather than beneficial, to the consumer. It is inherently an uneconomic affair throughout, from the time the raw materials are assembled until consumption is completed, and Clever can become a source of wealth or general prosperity. By its very nature it involves corruption, connivance and political subversion, for it depends for its greatest profit upon excesses und depravity. It has been legitimized only as a matter of temporary expediency. Industry profits most when consumption is greatest, and therefore it behooves industry to encourage consumption. So with the liquor businettn, but in encouraging consumption of Its product it does nut raise, but on the i . m " ::. m 1 -iXSf III -V If 'JIi"i w Jt..i Tvn ? sftUi! .ir. il l e 1936 NEA Ssnits, Inc. teied the oflice of the Models' Leauue.

The girl glanced ut an appointment schedule. "You'll have to wuit a little while " Toby said, "That's nil right," and crossed the room and sat down. ' The Outer door opened almost immediately and a girl entered. Slie was taller than Toby, slender and very pretty.

Half an hour doesn't make much difference, thougli I guess 1 might as well wait here." Slie put down the suitcase, sat down in a chair near Toby's. Then she took a vanity case from her pursc opened it and studied her face critically in the mirror. The face seemed to Toby to be quite flawless.

Where the gray hat lifted, at a jaunty angle, auburn hear, waving softly,' was visable. Apparently the girl had used no make-up except a crimson lipstick. . ': She put aside the vanity case, and turned toward Toby. After a moment's inspection, she asked, "Arc you new here?" Toby nodded. "So new," she admitted, "that 1 haven't really begun to work. Mr. Blake sent for me " "Well, if he sent for you. you don't have to worry. He must think you're good. And,- believe me. Ben Blake knows!" "I hope I'll be all right," Toby began nervously. "Of course you will. Studios are glad to see beginners those that really photograph w c 1 1. They're always looking for new faces, you know." Tobv didn't.
