To the Eidtor: May we comment on your editorial of April 2nd, "Caution Advisable", in which you come to the defense of the Mountain Slates Power Company by advising against the lormation of, the Peoples' Utility District? ' We are pleased to have some one come to the defense of the local power company. It is what we have been wanting tor a long time. Such defense will give the sponsors of the utility district an opportunity to present the facts oi public ownership of public utilities versus the ownership by private monopoly. Those who oppose this project will lind a complete report of the Hydroelectric Cominisison filed with the county clerk. We hope they will read it and present all possible objections to the formation of the proposed district, and that sponsors of the same may have equal space to present their arguments. in your editorial you warn that the replacement of the Mountain Slates Power Co. would be hazardous. Then to support your contention you cite only one of the two proposals in the hydroelectric commission report. It is designated in the report as "Project B" and it is tne only hazard given in the report. Let me present to your readers some of the facts in "Project A" the one that you overlooked. "Project A", which is "to serve that part of the territory now served and also to make service available to 774 residential and 41 commercial prospects by construction of 220 miles of. .lines more than than the 235 miles now existing." The additional customers to be served by this extension together with those unserved customers adjacent to the present lines are residential 221)1, commercial 72, and industrial nine, making a total of 2352 potential customers. According to the hydroelectric commission's report the estimated cost of construction of an entirely new distribution system -serv ing all the cities in the district and 455 miles of rural lines is $910,000. In making estimates of annual costs the commission assumes that the district will pay interest only during the first four years and then during the next 2b years the indebtedness will be amortized and completely paid off through revenues. On this basis of financing, the costs to the district will be $258.-783 annually, for the lirst four years and S276.587 annually the next 26 years. The O-itimalorl nnmml I'ni'iiiinn from such an investment, assum- ' to foot the bill, It's the fact that M the money seems to be going down the equivalent of a rathole. At any rate, that's what the record suggests to date. The U. S. Supreme Court, in turning down the illustrious and expensive John W. Davis himself, by refusing to hear a suit to test constitutionality of the public utilities holding company act, refused a writ of certiorari for the first time in a New Deal case and enormously strengthened the government's hand in the attempt to break up the holding company racket. TT'EW know It, but the i nut has an unwritten ;' rule that any time three justices want such writ they can have one. This knowledge and the Indication thai at least seven justices sustained Solicitor General Stanley Reeds contention that the petition involving the American States Public Service Co of Baltimore wasn't a fair lesl was what gravely depressed "power trust" lawyers and sent government attorneys Into transports of delight. . The result Is that New Deal lawyers will htj able to present the act lo the court in Hie best possible light, through 1 heir chosen suit acaiust the huge Electric Bond & Share Co.. wlilrh Is charged with violation through failure to regis- ing the rates and the average us age of current per customer is the same as at present, would be $308,985. Subtract from this amount the annual costs for the first four years and we still have an annual surplus of $50,202. If we make a further subtraction of 'SI 9,934 for taxes estimated on the present millage basis, we still have an annual surplus of $30,268 after taking care of every other probable expense. Likewise, over the next 26 years we have art annual surplus of $32.-308 and if taxes ore deducted we still have an annual surplus of $12,464. This proposal of the hydroelectric commission does not look to be the least hazardous and it is the proposal that the district authorities will very likely follow when the utility district is formed.

An in'vita- stage his Rhinelund demonstration it this time. Germany's power is apparently sufficient now to en alple her to strike feur into her neighbors heurts. As a conse quence her occupation of the de militarized zone and defiance of the Locarno and Versailles treat les has changed the complexion of the League-Italian relations, It begins to look like the League may need Italy worse than Italy need the League, and that the imposi tion of sanctions against til would-be conquerors of Abyssinia will be so softened us to be effective, which means that Italy will go ahead in her conquest without active opposition of th League. France particularly needs Italy support in uny dispute with Ger many, and while the League of Nations is dominated by England. there would be nothing much let to dominate should Italy and France join hunds. So it is not likely that Britain will insist upon heavy punishment for Italy. And so Mussolini goes ahead with his plans while the League signatories stund around wonder ing just whut to do. It is a rank outsider that points out to us our own virtues.

As fur as, hi Is concerned things arc settled Jorever. ' '"'I" But the case itself will not be forgotten ior-. long time. From first to last, ft has-been the-hor-rlble example of American , criminal -history; and,, even the fact that its chief actor was finally executed -according to law docs not take; the bad taste out of - our mouths.; :" The crime, itself" was " the twentieth' century's 'most acid cqmmentary on Jhe condition of society in the republic. The arrest was jhe result of some excellent police .work, . to .be sure;, but. the trial was the sort of thing one of the more frivolous' Roman emperors might have devised for the amusement of the populace, and the things that filled in the months between sentence and execution reflect .credit on practically nobody. . And it is hard to avoid the feeling that the whole story in this tragic case has not been told. With Hauptmann at last under the ground, it may never be told. We got, the outlines, but they were not filled in fully. Justice may not have ; miscarried, but she did stumble around in ' roinuikublc confusion. 'All tills' is not to say that we ned waste, any tears over Hauptmann himself. After all, this man was caught with the goods on him. From first to last, he never offered an acceptable story to explain himself. But it does seem aa If his arrest gave the authorities an opening which they managed to muff completely. For we are still left with all of those puzzling, disturbing questions unanswered. Where hits the rest of the money gone? Who got it? Where did Hauptmann get his familiarity with the layout of the Lindbergh home? Wus' he helped by anyone ut any lime in his commission of the'-A-rtme imd if so, by whom? What was the "inside" of the . amuzing Wcndel "confession"?,,' , ' . Anyonc(who hus 'followed the case In the newspaper run. think of half a dozen gimilur questions; questions that never were imswer-cd and that now, in nil probability, never will be answered fully and definitely. And the fuct so1 many -loose ends are left leads one to feel tlie authorities somehow missed a great opportunity. Perhaps there Is something to be isaid for life, imprisonment, in a case of this kind. The lifer at least is on ice where you can get at him, if new evidence turns up; there is always the chance that he will decide to tell all he knows. 'But the man who has put in his two minutes in the electric elm ir is not going to tell you any mftie, eyer. When you throw the switch, you close the case for keeps. And so, with all its imperfections, the Hauptmann case is closed. Hauptmann may have got precisely what was coming to him. no more and no less; but his electrocution leaves us with a disturbing feeling that the picture as a whole is' somehow incomplete. NOT SUCH A FOOL. -, Current Jrehds in the Old World indicate that ifter all Benito Mussolini may not have been the fool we thought he was for accepting the short end of the odds in his drie In Ethiopia. , - Judging from the '.way things seem to be turning out, Mussolini will ultimately get just' what he went after and perhaps more, too, without sacrificing anything but the lives of a few Itulians and many more Ethiopians. In the first place it appears that the black savages were much overrated as fighters, at least in the face of a Well equipped and well generated opposition. In the second place circumstances, whether they bt Influenced by Mussolini or pot, Toby was spared from answering. Harriet looked up, smiling and asked if they had enjoyed the dance. "It was great!" Sabin told her heartily. "Your little friend here knows how to step. She and I could do solo stuff with a little practice " Ho laughed at his own joke, and went on with another. Toby brought out her vanity case, pretending to be engrossed in it. She lelt humiliated, angry. This was the man Harriet was to marry in a few weeks! He knew that she was Harriet's closest friend, and yet lie had dared to suggest that they should "slip out together" some aiternoon. It was disgusting. It was outrageous. . The dreadful part was that Harriet was going to marry Clyde Sabin. It would be a hideous mistake but what was there to be done,. Harriet was in love with Sabin, counting the days until their marriage. -There was no use to tell her that Sabin wus a pnuanaerer or worse. Toby, wnn her instinctive dislike for him, was Inclined to think he was much worse. She knew suddenly that she could not stay through the evening, listening to Clyde Sabin's jokes and avoiding his eyes. She could not dance with Tom Garside and be trampled by his clumsy feet. Toby leaned toward Harriet. She said, "Listen, my head's aching fearfully. I think it must have been the lights this afternoon. 1 had to stand under them for so long. 1 don't want anyone to come with me, but I'm going home " They wouldn't hear to her going alone. Instead, Sabin paid the check and they all got into a cab and rode to tile apartment. Har riet was concerned but Toby insisted she would be all riaht alone and that the others should go on. Alter a time they did. Toby went up stairs, undressed and slipped '"to a negligee. She was still railing at Sabin, dismayed at the thought of his marriage to Harriet. She turned out all the lights except the parchment-shaded table lump. Then she sank down on the davenport and leaned back against the cushions. Why did anyone as sweet at Harriet have to fall in love with a man like Clyde Sabin? Why were so many things like that" The telephone shrilled and she crossed the room to answer it. Toby s.uci. "Hello," and a mans voice answered. For a tremulous instant her heart seemed to stop completely. It was Tim Jamieson. HOME .MODERNIZATION- AID Toledo.

Besides, we don't need to stay late." So Toby had agreed. She wasn't seeing much of Harriet lately. Neither of them seemed to be at home when the other was. And Toby had put off similar invitations, by declaring that somp day she would go. Tom Garside worked for the same company us Clyde Sabin. He was a salesman, but he traveled in a different territory than Clyde. Garside had sandy hull and rather red cheeks and he slurred his words slightly. He told Toby that his family had lived in Virginia, though he had left there long ago. She rather liked him except that it seemed strange to have an escort who was old enough to be her father. Garside appeared to be several years older than Clyde. The men ordered cocktails and Toby thought both of them drank rather more than they should. With each drink Clyde Sabin's spirits seemed to rise. He ordered an expensive dinner and was in-sistant that it should be cooked exactly according to instructions. He sent a request to the orchestra leader to play a certain tune and, when they played it, took Har riet off to dance. Garside said to Toby, ' Would you like to dance?" The music was tempting, and she said that she would. But Car-side proved to be a clumsv dancer. When the number was flushed she was glad to go back to tlieir table. Clyde Sabin greeted them, beaming. "Cleat orchestra," he said, "and great music. I know the fellow who wrote that song". He was off on a long-winded anecdote about an encounter in a barroom. Toby looked at Harriet and thought, "What can she see in kim-.'" But Harriet, apparently, saw in Clyde Sabin a knight in shining umor. hhe listened to his stones, eying him with rapt, smiling at tention. The food came and was served, ind presently the orclusli.i nlnv- cd another number. This time Sabin asked Toby to dance Reluctantly, she nureeil. 'r one Toby was determined, was to know her distaste for the man. I lie music was a fox trot, a mel ody for which extremely sentimental words had been provided. Sabin began to hum me tune sultry as they moved otf among the dancers. He was a good dancer; then- steps were harmonious, smooth. Sabin's hand lightened slight ly on Toby's shoulder. "You're all right, Baby," he said. "You and I can get along " She turned, pretendine mi! in hear, and asked, "Is that Harriet over there?" "Where."' But it was not Harriet, ax T.ihv had known it was She wished Sabin would not hold her so close ly. Itiey circled the floor mid member of the orchestra began to sing the words of the tune. Words that rhymed "nearest'' with - dearest," and "kisses" with ' blisses.'' Sabin said, 'Listen. Baby, you and 1 ought to get better acquainted. You're the type of Eirl 1 like How about slipping em together! some afternoon " She mumbled an answer, evasive and incoherent as her i thoughts. Sabin did not seem to notice. The music ended and he ' follow ed her back to their table. I Over her shoulder, he said con- fidently, "Remember. Some of ! these days I'm going to give you a i buzi." " i CHAPTER XXV Duryea telephoned to Toby to come to his studio the next morning. They were to-start work at once on the series of photographs for the Hillyer Soap company. And set to work they did. It was harder than anything Toby hud ever done, and not all of it was before the camera. Duryea sent her to a hairdresser one whose name was famous. The hairdresser snipped and combed ind waved, and when Toby saw the results she had to admit that it was an improvement. The new haircut, in some indefinable way, provided the perfect frame for her foce. Artfully executed, It had the look of cumplete naturalness. Her hoir must be kept in the same shining perfection, and so a scries of regular appointments was made. Three time a week Toby went to the beauty talon. Her skin was flawless, but It, too, must be kept that way. An expert chunged the line of her eyebrows slightly, while a -manicurist worked on her nails. A young woman who seemed to know a great deal about cosmetics produced a powder that exactly blended with Toby's skin, a rouge so natural looking that it defied detection. Duiyea, who instituted thee changes, insisted that that w;i; im portant. Toby was not to have tne nrtiticial appearance nf a sophisticated young woman. She was to he i vouth Itself, radiant and untouch ed. Her costumes were selected with this idea in mind. Dozens of bux- s were delivered at the sluclio from one of the most exclusive ihnps in New York. Tobv tried on he dresses and hats, and Duryea yed Iht-m critically, ninkini; m-Ioc ions. When they had finished v. ilh hem the costumes went back to he shop. . Harriet seemed almost more ex cited about this than Toby her- elf. She was particularly mlv-r-slcd in the clothes Toby was to wear. "Maybe you'll be famous!" Harlot exclaimed. "You know there was that girl a few years ago. She wore a felt - hut in n photograph or an advertisement a plain felt hat, shaped and dented like a man's. It was an exclusive model, but in just a few days maiiufac- urers nil over the country slart- d making hats like that. Every body went crazy about it. And the ill who'd posed for the photo-raph Rot offers from the movies nd from a big musical comedy." "What did she do'."' Toby asked. "Well, she took the stage job r a while, mid kept on posing mi pretty soon she married an wtully rich num. They went away some place 1 don t remember here. Just think, Toby! Mavbe it will be like that with one of your pictures ! "I don't think so." "Hut it could be!" Toby shook her head. "Things like that only happen once in a lifetime,' she s.nd. '-Besides. I'm not looking fur a rich husband." "What kind are you looking for?" "None." '- The news that Toby was the model chosen for the Hillyer ail-verstinging campaign had reached other studios. Immediately the others wanted her to pose for them, too. Toby took as many of the assignments as she could, turned down the others. Rates for her services doubled. "Make all you can while vou can get II." Sally of the Model League advised shrewdly. "A girl has to look out for herself." Weary of this Spartan routine. Toby agreed one evening to go out with Harriet and Clyde Sabin mid Clyde's friend. Tom Garside. They were going to a restaurant that hud recently opened. Newspaper ; i Directories and Directories!
