It was also shown that both the number and total of Mich payments were quite small in com-parison with the number and total of all payments. The story makes good political propaganda, but Secretary Henry A. Wallace has asked critics how they would limit production without co-operation of the large farms. - - Information as to the concentration of farm holdings is limited. In a northeastern area of 22 states, reaching as far west and south as Minnesota. Iowa. Missouri, Kentucky, and Virginia, it was found that from 1930 to 1935 the number of farms operated by full owners had Increased 12 per cent, while those operated by tenants Increased 10 per cent. Percentage of total farms occupied by tenants Increased less than 2 per cent. There were fewer manager-operated farms and the total number of these is less than I per cent, but the average acreage of this type of farm Increased 12 5 per cent while the average acreage of all farms was declining 6.G per cent. Yet manager-operated holdings as a whole declined S per cent. ' .

Few If any measures passed by Congress have ever been so comprehensive In covering agricultural or other labor The hill is designed to remove legal doubt as to AAA's sugar quotas by writing quotas into the bill instead of leaving them to executive discretion and to supplement Soil Conservation payments of about 12'. 4 cents a hundred pounds by an additional maximum rjf 37',-i cents. Payments would be conditional on maximum working hours and minimum wages to be set by the secretary of agriculture, no employ-ment of children under 14, an eight-hour day for children betweeu and 16 and the growing of enough cane or beets to meet allotments hut not exceed them.

The front entrance of the court house was congested all day long as scores of prospective buyers awaited favorite piece or pieces of delinquent tax property to be offered for sale.

We are begin ning to understand that it is t crime against nature for us to waste these things. A good part of the resentment against the AAA came from a dim feeling that it was somehow very wrong to let fertile soil go to waste at a time when some peo ple were finding it hard to gel enough food. We swung away from the NliA largely because we felt that to waste productive ca pacity through restrictive devices was sinful. But all the while the depression was committing the greatest waste of all with one of our richest na tural resources man power. The presence in this country of some 40,000,000 intelligent, active men is a resource sucb as few na tions have ever possessed. When a fourth of these men can find nothing useful to do, and must at public expense be kept from starving, a waste of unimaginable magnitude is taking place. The money we have to spend to keep these men fed and housed is not the real wasle; neither are the footling, pieayunish job we invent to keept them occupied. The real waste is the simple, tragic fact that this great army of men who might be busy -are idle. We could abolish WPA and abandon the dole, if we chose; the fundamental waste would go on. We don't seem to be able to get worked up about it. We can bewail the slaughter of little pigs with fine fervor. We can denounce 'scarcity economics" when industrial production is restricted. But we can't seem to understand that the greatest, most expensive of all wusles Is the one represented by the men who want to work and can't.

The most recent one of course, ' Is the proposition advanced by the heads of three Latin American na- ' tipn for a league of New World , states to keep the peace, settle arguments, and turn the "good neighbor" policy into something tliat you can get cashed at the bank. As with all such proposals, the f potential value of this scheme depends on how sccriously the na-i (Ions Involved could be induced p to take it. It might be made cx- ceedlngly useful, and It might turn Into Just one more high-' powered, debating society, orna- mental, but impractical. However, the suggestion has been made; and it comes, oddly enough, at a season of year when the mere Idea of national isolation looks just a little bit foolish. Right now, for instance, an American air lino is just getting under way with a mail and pas-' penger service that reaches all the way across the Pacific. International negotiations are under way for a line to provide similar service to Europe. Our airplanes link U8 with South America, which, in turn, has just been connocted with Europe by the dirigible Hindon-burg, K v The form bell Is turning the soil for a new crop. The great Industrial belt of the East and Middle-west is hiring new men and hopefully planning expansion. And, in both cases, the hoped-for prosperity will not be as robust as everyone wants It to be unless a fuir percentage of the product can be shipped overseas. This, in turn, depends in part on such remote questions as whether the French government will devalue the franc; beyond it even remoter questions, such as that of restoring prosperity to central Europe. Meanwhile, our progress toward prosperity is made difficult by high taxes; and . these taxes are high, partly because we are still paying for our share of a war that began when a Serbian schoolboy shot an Austrian duke, and partly because we are building an enormous navy for use (presumably) several thousand miles west of the Hawaiian Islands. All this has very little (o do with this Latin American proposal for a New World league to keep the peace. But that proposal, mild us it is, will frighten a lot of people, who will Insist thai we must preserve our isolation. When you look at the way our Whole national life is bound up with hings thai happen thousands; of miles beyond our borders, you muy bo tempted to ask: "What isolation?" Ol'R GREATEST WASTE Maybe we've lost our ability to worry about a waste, or maybe the waste of a man isn't as important as that of a bushel of Avheat or a crate of steel castings; anyway, we don't seem to understand that the most tragic waste In America today is that represented by unlmployment. We put in a good deal of time talking about it, to be sure, but we do It with reverse English. - If you get up in meeting and denounce the WPA, for instance, as wasteful an Inefficient, you will find innumerable people agreeing with you. If you stand up and denounce the dole as an unendtu- ably wasteful drain on the country's finances, you will get more cheers. But both of these wastes ore side issue. The really expensive one lies in the fact of unemployment itself: in the act that millions of able, self-respecting men who want nothing on earth so much as a jb are unable-to find' one.

"I'm I'm your daughter?" "Yes, Toby. Ive had detectives at work for weeks ever since I first suspected the truth. They've pieced together the whole story; all the legal documents are in my office. Toby, you said a while. ago that you wouldn't mind having me for a father. Do you still mean it?" She could not speak not for a few moments. She was smiling, yet her eyes were filled with tears. "My father!" she said, almost in a whisper. "My own, real father,-!" Hillyer drew out a handkerchief and snezed. His eyos, too, were suddenly suspiciously moist. "My Toby," he added,' - "But how did you knowY How did you ever find out? Oh, I Want to know all about it ?" She had to hear the whole story, then, from the beginning. And the beginning was the day weeks before when a dozen photographs were laid on Jay Hilyer's desk photographs of models from who the "Hillyer Soap Girl" was to be selected. "It wasn't your photograph- not at first that decided the question," he told her. "It was your name. 1 was curious about a girl whose name wns Toby. Yuu see, it happens to be my name. .Jay T. Hillyer. The T. is lor Tobias and it was my grandfather's name. I was 'Toby' as a boy , and that is whut your mother culled me. Later when I went into business I thought Jay was more dignified sb 1 took to using it instead. It's the name I've used (or 21) years now. "Your mother gave you my name, and it was that that led to my finding you. Your 'mother and my Mary bringing us together, dear, after all these years. You sec, your aunt misled you hen she said, you were her brother's child. I suppose she did it because she thought, as she had stud so often, that the annulled marriage was n disgrace. She didn't want any connection Willi the Hillyer name, so she called you Toby Ryan- Your mother's name was Mary rein Mary Fern ltyau. That wus before 1 changed it to Mary Fern Hillyer. There's a record of your christening among the paper's I've .gotten together. I'll get them all out and show them to you in a day or so. "Do you remember the afternoon 1 walked into Durvea's studio when you were posing for photograph? You hud on a blue dress with a long, full skirt, and ruffles. Y'ou can't imagine the shock it gave me. Your mother wore a dress like that-years ago. Oh, I supnose you would see dif ferences, but the dress you wore looked to me exactly like your mother's. Y'ou looked amazingly like her. . , 'I asked you to have dinner with me that night. After I'd talk ed to you, I made up my mind that I had to know more about it. I 9 Ht had to find out who you were and where you came from-"Next morning I got in touch with a private detective agency and put them to work. They pieced back the facts-but it took time. You see, trying to find your mother, I had no clews to work with, but tracing your story was simpler. After a while we were able to put the two stories togeth er, the jig-saw puzzle began to show a pattern." "And all this time,'" Toby said reproachfully, "you've known and never given me a hint!" "How could I until I was sure? That's why I went away on this trip. To establish the truth of the last link in the proof. I was able to do that." Toby shook her head. "You can't know what it means to me," she said. "To have a father a real father of my own after these years when I haven t had anyone! ' "Don't forget, Toby, that I'm finding out what it's like to have a daughter after all these years when I've had nobody either. My parents are dead now. The breach that developed between us as a re sult of my broken marriage was never healed, I'm sorry to say. I've been alone for a long while, Toby." She smiled and her eyes glistened mistily- "You asked what I thought of you asj a father, didn't you? I hope that, as a daughter you're going to find me accept able. "As a daughter." Hillyer told her. "you are everything in the world 1 could hope for. As a daughter, Toby, you are eminently a success. In the last weeks I have come to know you better, I believe, than many a father who has lived in the same house with his daughter ull her life." , Toby said, as she hud before, "My own father my own real father!"

What do you think of me as a lather, anyhow? Think I'll moke the erade.' "I don't know why not. 1 think' you'd make a, wonderful father. He was silent u moment, his ..yes directly on hers. "Do you really mean that, Toby?" "1 certainly do. Hut where is she, mid when am I going to see her? I'm terribly excited about all this. Did you say 1 knuw her?" "Yes, you know her. Very well.

When she died I had to leave school and start earning u living--" . "But your parents. What about them?" "1 don't know much about Ihein," Toby said soberly. "1 wish i did.
