Of these seven have been republicans and four democrats. Three have been editors, one a farmer and the others various kinds of business men; not a law yer or doctor. All previous to 1915 are dead. Mr. Freeland, the first men- tioned, had gone elsewhere when we walked into Albany, Sept. 30, 1880.

The Americans were outnumbered and had no chance at all, Unless they could put over a good scare. So they sent an honest country man on ahead. He reached the British camp at the double, rolling his eyes and panting heavily, and announced that limitless numbers of ' well-fed American soldiers were advancing to overwhelm the British. ' The .hirelings of King George took him at his word and decamped hastily, and the Americans walked In and took possession of a fort they never could have won if they had had to fight for it. Just what- happened to the honest countryman is not known, but his descendants seem to have collared nice Jobs as radio announcers and news correspondents. They are the people who have to make a dramatic story out of everything. If somebody's wood lot burns, they make a terrible forest fire out of It; if a rain strikes Hicksville, they turn it into a devastating cloudburst. They run a temperature at the drop of a hat. All this is called to mind by some recent happenings in Evansville, Ind. 1 Evansville sits on the, bunk of the Ohio river, and a short time ago that river had a good deal of ice in it. And the first thing anybody knew, the nation was being told that this ice jam was wrapping up d fine flood for immediate delivery to Evansville. A radio commentator spoke of a 40-foot wall of water that was about to break on the city. Another radio-er got dramatic and breathless about an impending disaster. An excitable news correspondent raised the height of the wall of water to 48 feet. Red Ciom, disaster experts rushed to the scene prepared to set up concentration camps for no fewer than 10,000 refugees. Everyone, in fact, got all worked up except the people of Evansville. They have lived beside their river for a long time, and they know just about what it can and cannot do to them. They strolled down to watch the lee gorge go out, which it did quite peaceably; some of them went out Into the surrounding lowlands on a vain hunt for flood victims, of which there were none; and then everybody went home, feeling as if someone had let them down rather badly. In other words, it was all a false alarm, stirred up by excitable folk who never learned the first lesson of a reporter to keep cool and find out exactly what is happening before leaping for the telephone. And in some way we seem to be letting ourselves in for a good deal of this sort of thing these days. We have to make things exciting. We insist on having breathless drama served up to us, morning, noon, and night. The stratagem that licked the British seems to have us licked, too. STILL OUR RIGHT An enormous amount of water has run over the dam since the day when Washington and Jefferson were risking the scaffold for the sake of liberty; and Democracy, testing lady that she is, seems to have gotten her feet wet 'way up to the ears, or thereabouts, -' To prove that statement, one need only reflect that one of the best ways to get a reputation as a dangerous citizen these days Is to go about repeating, the- very phrase which our founding fathers used in the great struggle for independence. ,, , This discovery has been made over and over, of law," rjy'ttud-enta, school teachers and university professors. It is not surprising therefore, that the most stirring call to arms or the defense of old- II ation. The author of this cull to arms was Dr. Charles A. Beard, famous historian, and his words are worth repeating here: "Let us rededicate ourselves to the American tradition of liberty and to the faith that error need not be feared-wherc reason is free to combat it. "Let us assert anew against brute force the values of inde pendent scientific inquiry, of the unhampered search for truth, of fair hearlnB and a n,w uy and uphold them by fearless and united effort. "Not for the gratification of pride, nor with .my gesture of false superiority. Not out of any academic pique. But because this spirit and by this procedure alone can American democracy cope with its gravest problems and under the force of law, thus main taining amid the wreck and ruin of parliamentary institutions, east and west, the example of a na tion that has not lost its head or its heart." When you remember how our country was born, and the ideals to which it was dedicated, you can see that no good American can pledge himself to less than that. For that plea simply embodies the fundamentals of Americanism And in a period when there is so much attempted repression, so many appeals to ignorance and prejudice, we cannot afford to for get them. Our forefathers thought enough of those fundamentals to fight and die for them. They believed that when a people has lost the right to speak freely, to debate without hindrance, to print what seems good 1 to individual consciences, and to assemble openly whenever the spirit moves it, it has lost everything worth having. So they fought for and won those rights. But they did not win them forever. It is up to us to be vigilant enough to keep them. They arc under attack today. If we fail in their defense, America's great day is over. - BARBS VICTOR MiI.ACil.KN wishes farm would says he forget he mice wits n lighter And lighters nit It hard to convince their fans they aren't actors. a a A Europeon iror it liahle to arrive noonrr than V"" cn mil "Jaek ifoMiMon" or a dlcfafor mil car lip n irealv.

'Er what s that: ' "I couldn't help hearing what you were saying to Mr. McCracken," Bill repeated, "about finding a model for the Hillyer soap ads. I wanted to show you this picture." He laid the clipping on the desk. "This girl," he went on, hasn't been posing very long. I thought perhaps you hadn't seen her photographs." Blane took the clipping. "Hm," he said. Then he looked up at Bill and smiled. "Girl friend?" he asked. "Oh, no," Bill said hastily. "I that is, we used to live on the same street. It was just that what you said about wanting someone with freshness and charm and all that made me think of this picture. Toby really is like that. Toby Kyan, her name is." "But these pictures are going to be in color," Blane objected. "It takes more than just a pretty face " . "That's what I wanted to tell you, Bill went on eagerly. "Toby will be a knock-out in color." "Hm. Has she ever posed for any color photographs?" No, I don't think so, but that's! really an advantage. You said you wore anxious to find a girl whose picture hasn't been used a lot. In color photographs Toby will look like a difterent girl. No one will ever know they've seen her before." Blane eyed the clipping narrosv- ly. "She's a pietty girl,'' he said. "What agency does she work with?" "The Models' Laague." "Well, I'll tell you what 1 11 do. I'll put her picture in with some others were considering." He went on, smiling, "It occurs to me, Brandt, that we've had you in the wrong department. Mavbe you should be selling ads instead of writing them. ' "I'd like to try it, Mr.; Blane." "Would you?

J "" . EAF.ut LjTr ' BY LAURA LOU BROOKMAN CHAPTER XXII Harriet, who was at the mirror coaxing her hair into soft waves, said, "There's a letter for you, Toby. It came in the afternoon mail " Toby picked up the letter and for one breathless moment her heart soared. Then she saw the name on the corner of the envelope and the warm feeling that had surrounded her vanished. The let ter wasn't from Tim. The name on the envelope was that of an ad vertising ugency. She said, It's nothing very im portant, I guess," and tore open the envelope. There were two sheets inside, folded separately. The first bore the letterhead of the advertising agency. It read, briefly, that the enclosed letter had been received from a publication carrying their advertising and, since it seemed to be for Toby, they were forwarding it to her. The second page was u sheet of pale pink nutepaper, written in purple ink. Attached was a pic ture of Toby, cut lroin an adver tisement. The picture was rather worn and hud uccn folded so that crease came directly down the enter of her lace. But it was ,'oby just the same. She folded back the clipping ind read: "Dear Dream Girl: I suppose ou will be surprised to get this letter from someone you have never seen or heard of, but since I do not know where you are, writing this letter is the best I can do. I hope It will reach you. Dream Girl, lor you are the one 1 have been searching tor all my lite. 1 have anuthcr picture like the one 1 am putting in this leltei and 1 keep it in my watch and look at it many times a day. "I would send you one of my pictures, but I do not have any that do me justice. Dream Girl. I have roved the world, but now 1 am ready to settle down in a little home and know that you are the one to share my lot. Will you please write me and tell me your name and address'.' Until then I will just call you Dream Girl and count the days until 1 hear from you. "Ever-lovingly, "Jonas Huckleberry." Toby read it slowly, for some of the words were almost illegible. Then she said, "Why, Harriet how ridiculous!" "What's the matter, honey?' "This letter. It s perfectly crazy. Listen to this " She read the letter again, this time aloud. Harriet crossed the room and took it from her when she hud finished. "It's a proposal," let exclaimed. "Jonas Huckleberry wants you to marry him, Toby. He's asking you to share his lot and I II bet it's a fine one! I've had some fan mail myself, but never anything to equal" this. Well, darling, there's a husband if you want him." "1 certainly don't." The other laughed. "You needn't take it so seriously." she said. -Ho will never be able to find your name or address. Listen, honey, Clyde's going to be busy tonight. What do you say we see a movie together." Toby said. "Whv. v:-s. I'd liko to." It was the afternoon of the following day. Howard Blane. junior member of the firm of Amber-son and Blanc, stood in the office of Al McC'racken, ace copy writer of the advertising agency. "I've just been talking "to Ramsey " Blane said. "He'll have those tables of statistics over here this afternoon." .inC!ood McCracken nodded. ' II get to work on them as soon as they show up." He reached for a sheaf of papers. "Here's the fitt draft of the Kimball Bakeries copy. Want to take a look at it?" "Thanks." Blane took the bulky sheets and turned to go. Half-way to the door, he swung around and came back. "I thought we .were ready to go ahead on that Hillyer soap series," he said confidentially, "but there's another delay. Hillyer wasn't satisfied with the model Joyce picked. That's the trouble with that place. Everything's got' to be okayed by Hillyer himself. Talking to anyone else is just a waste of time " "I shouldn't think it would be hard to find a model," McCracken said. "New York's full of them." "I know but finding one to suit Hillyer's another matter. He's got his own ideas. Wants a girl whose picture hasn't been used too much or associated with another product. One with freshness and charm. Unsophisticated. The sort of girl who can hold a bar of soap in her hand and smile and mane you think that, because she likes it, you'll like it, too. ' "It's going to be a nice job for the girl who lands it. They're go- ing to give her a conuact and $1000 bonus to agree not to pose lor any other soap manufacturer tor a year. Of course, she'll be paid tor all the posing she does, besides She can pose lor any other product, but no other soap manutact-urer.'' There was a sound in the doorway and both men turned. Bill Brandt stood there. He said, "Excuse me. 1 thought you were alone Mr. McCracken." "Did you finish that Bradley copy'.'" McCracken asked. "Ves. 1 have it here." "Leave it with me," McCracken said. "I'll go over it later and talk to you about il." Bill gave him the typewritten sheets and returned to his own desk. He couldn't have avoided hearing what Blanc had said about finding a model for the Hillyer soap advertisements. Everyone in the office knew what a big account that was. Back pages, in color, on the best known magazines in the country. One of the biggest jobs Amberson and Blane had ever lauded. Diane's words still rang in Bill's cars. "A girl whose pictures haven't been used too much. ... . .one with freshness and charm who can hold a bar of soap in hei hand and make you think thai, because she like its. you'll like it, too. .... .It's going to be a nice job for the girl who lands it " . On Bill's desk was a box of cough arops and a manuscript reviewing the history of the company manulacturing them. He was supposed to be reading that his-toiy. Hut Bill disregarded it, as well as the cough drops. He opened a drawer of his desk and took out several clippings. They were advertisements, cut from newspapers and magazines. In each there was a picture of a girl the same girl. Bill laid the clippings out before him, rearranged them. He sat back and studied them and presently 1 withdrew one. Then another. Al last only one remained. It was the photograph of a girl with an aim-tui of daisies. She was looking tip. smiling, and the wind had blown her hair back from heiQace. it was easy to imagine this girl hail ed by tne gloiiousness of a sum- iYer morning, drinking in the beauty of trees and sky and yellow ' sunshine. It was Toby Ryan. 6 For several minutes Bill studiefe the picture. Then he arose anrta went to Howard Blane's private I office. The door of the room was open and Bill stood there a mo- ' merit before he entered. i 'Mr. Blane." he said, "I could- I n't help hearing what you vcne ; saying about finding a model to i aumoriiy, gave on iniormai. address, and his two talented children,. W. Gifford and Dorothy, were heard. And Mrs. Nash was a brainy woman, of striking appearance. Mr.-and Mrs. Nash and Gif- ford have passed away.
