I like it." , , "It's an old one of .Harriet's. I had one she liked, so we traded." "How is Harriet?" "She looks grand. That month in Plainsville did' wonders for her-Do you know what she says she's going to do? She wants to have 'Aunt Abigail' Dinwiddie come down here and she says she's going to give a party for her." "I hope she comes. If I'm not Invited to that party, I'll crash it." "You'll be invited, all right," Suddenly Toby's face sobered. "That reminds me," she said! "of something I was going to tell you, Bill. It isn't supposed to be known yet, but I wanted to tell you " He looked up, waiting. 'It's about a wedding," Toby said slowly. "You're going to be invited to a wedding, Bill." (To Be Concluded) Stone's background Is unusually diversified. He started out as teacher of law and got Into th habit of judging without tha rt-ice in corporation law to whloh most justices have been largely confined. "i He left his post as dean of Columbia . University law . school to: join the ; big firm . of , Sullivan A Cromwell, where he had a chanoe learn the tricks ot Wall Street. Finally he served as attorney eral in the cabinet : Personally. Stone probably Is the s court's most popular member. Ha "gets around" more than any other justice and has a strong sens ot humor. A LEGEND is still floatlhi around to the effect that th crash of an American Airlines plane in Arkansas, which killed, 17 persons, resulted . when . a .dope fiend, who .had taken out hear Insurance just before the flight, suddenly murdered the pilot., - Although this fantastic version wasn't mentioned in the Bureau. ot Air Commerce's report, which officially declared the tragedy a mystery, the report conspicuously omitted mention of certain evidence which aided the buildup of the theory, and orders have been Issued requiring that pilot compartments be locked and passengers barred therefrom. - . - Several phials of morphine were found in the wreckage. A hole which some thought probably had been made by a bullet fired inside . the plane was also discovered in t V piece of metal. Tha wreckage also turned up an unidentified revolver. Then there was the aforementioned rumor that a passenger had be financially embarrassed and '.v. taken out a large amount of Insurance. (Copyrlehl. mas. vea Service Inri.i ' -BY RODNEY BY RODNEY DUTCHER KKA Serrlee Staff CorrrapondeHl, WASHINGTON. Every so often the nation has to have a new chief Justice of the U S. Supreme Court The next one, many insiders believe, will be Justice Harlan Flske Stone. Stone is the youngest and most vigorous member of the court's liberal bloc. His personality and his forceful dissenting opinions have made him a candidate for the mantle of .the - beloved late Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes. ' Holmes never became chief Justice, but Stone is only 63 and some of those who have Roosevelt's confidence are sure the president will elevate him to that post it he ever gets the chance. Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes Is 74. beyond the retirement age and not very happy. Justice Louis D. Brandels. although In spiritual kinship with the New Deal, is 79 and hardly likely to succeed Hughes if it falls to Roosevelt to choose a successor. e e "OUTSTANDING among Stone's w distinctions: His sheer physical strength and energy match those of - Justice Owen J. Roberts on the conservative side. He is willing to take on the work of .writing the most important dissents and to lead In the hot infighting at court conferences which precede decisions. Stone Is not In sympathy with much of the New Deal. Appointed by Coolldge and a close personal friend ot Herbert Hoover, he Is a Republican. But he is a fighting champion for a liberal interpretation of the Constitution and the rights of Congress to legislate as against opinions influenced by personal, political, or economic bias. For a supreme court Justice, THREE DAY COOKING CONFERENCE TO BE STARTED WEDNESDAY What is said to be the first cooking conference of its kind ever to be held in Linn county, will open tomorrow afternoon in the showroom of the Portland Gas & Coke company, 314 West First street. The meeting Wednesday will be first of a series of three to which has been invited every woman in the county who is interested in the preparation of food. Presiding at the conference is Miss Jean Swigart, home economist for the gas company. The program for Thursday and Friday will be the same as the one pre-sented Wednesday. The sponsors The discerning brow of a capable critic A nose for a bargain Tha connoisseur's Hps fastidious, discriminating to tail instead of letting the tail wa; him. In the old days, when life ran smoothly and the dew was still on the rose, the politician could deal in beautiful speeches and get away with it. The country simply didn't need much governing. If Congress and the administration could just keep their hands off the machinery and devote them selves to waving the flag, posing for the photographers and arguing over which of two unmani-curcd hacks was to be United States marshal for Hockhocking county, all would be well. But things have changed. The politician now must be an economist. He must known something not just a smattering, but a lot about the relationship of money, wages, profits and stock prices. lie must be well versed in foreign affairs. He must have an extensive understanding of the farm problem, of foreign trade, of banking and currency, of soil conservation, of industrial practices. The old-timer just isn't fitted for such tilings. His solution for difficulties is to speak feelingly about the American flag, motherhood, and the spirit of '70 and then to clutch the top rail of the fence desperately and pray that no one compels him to descend. And Midi tactics aren't very helpful in times such us the present. So the party leaders have begun to enlist the services of trained brains. Only a start has been made, thus far; indeed, the idea of college professors giving politi cians a lift still strikes us as vaguely comical. But it is a safe bet that we shall see a great deal more of it in the future. Things are moving too fast for the man whose only qualifications are a gift of gab and a fine plat form manner. Our parties need trained brains, and they at last are beginning to realize the fact.

For when a man's moral indignation is once stirred, he ceases to think; after that, he will swallow anything and everything, content to feel rather than to use his gray matter. Cables from London the other day told how the British government is working up a fine frenzy of indignation because the Italians have been using poison gas and bombing civilians in their war with Ethiopia. Pitiful details are made public about the women and children who have been blown to bits by Italian bombs. Even more pitiful arc the details about the untutored blacks of Haile Selassie's army who have inhaled poison gas and died in agony. The British government, it is said, is so morally shocked by all this that It is preparing to redouble its effor;s to force Mussolini to terms by means of oil and other sanctions. Now here is a fine bid for our own moral indignation. Ah, those cruel and conscienceless aviators, bombing innocent people, torturing their foes with deadly gases : shouldn't we get furious about it and do whatever we can to stop outrages? But wait a bit; there's more coming. The- same cable that brought the news from London told, also, how Mussolini's troops filially had reached the shores of Lake Tana. Lake. Tana, if you're not familiar with Ethiopian geography, is the source of the Blue Nile, which makes Egypt and the Sudan fertile. The British have considered it their private preserve fur many years. No other power will ever get a foothold by its reedy marge, if the British have anything to , say about it. What, then, Is really worrying London the use of bombs and poison gas, or the presence of the Italian army at Lake Tanu? You are entitled to one guess, and, if you miss, you go In the fool of the class for general stupidity. ; This is just a sample. Let your emotions be stirred by the pitiful plight of the bombed Ethiopians, and you will presently find your self being used to protect fcng- land's right to exploit the water, of Lake Tana. Keep your emotions under con trol, examine all news from Lu rope for the presence of a colored gentleman in the woodpile and you are in much less danger of being sold a gold brick. I'OIJTICS KM.ISTS KKAINS : If everybody now has hud his little laugh over the fact that the Republicans have started a "brain trust" of their own, It might be a good Idea to pause and reflect that the bugler has begun to sound taps tor tho old-line, rabble-rousing politicians of both parties. Politics, having married economics, has simply walked out from under the politicians. A sil ver voice, a flowing tie, a frock coat and a passion for kissing babies no longer are sufficient equipment for the man who would serve his country in Washington He needs trained brains, as well. That Is the real significance of this new brain trust development. It marks the beginning of the end for the man who Is a politician and nothing more. To be sure, we still have our Farlcys.

"Do you know why I wanted to come here tonight, Bill?" . He said, with mock alarm, "Now don't tell me that you're going to go sentimental! You wouldn't say it was for old time's sake, would you?" She shook her head. "It's the corned beef hash," she said. "They always have it here on Wednesdays, you know. Doesn't it look marvelous?" "Delicious. Thought it's not, if I may say so, exactly the dish for a daughter of the pampered rich. Corned beef hash is plebian, Toby. flavored with onions. Humming birds' tongues is what you should be ordering." "I don't see why. I like hash. Last week 1 brought my father here and he's, been talking about it ever since." "Your father isn't a very good example of the pampered rich cither, Toby. He's a regular person" "He says the same thing about you." Bill eyed her, pretending severity. "Trying to win mo with flattery, are you, Miss Hillyer? I warn you it will have no effect." She grinned. "You're such an idiot, Bill." "Is that supposed to be more flattery?" "It's anything you want to call it. But, never mind. How's the advertising business these days?" "Great!" For five minutes he talked about Aniberson and Blanc's latest achievement. Toby listened, now and then asking questions. This was talk of the world in which she had once lived, a world she had found fascinating. "You do like your job, don't you?" she said presently. "Better all the time. How about you, Toby? Do you ever think you would like to be back in front of the cameras " She shook her head emphatical ly. "No," she said. "And 1 never w ill be.

TW much to see in San Diego RATES 2to350St, Y BY LAURA LOU BROOKMA CHAPTER XXXIV It was another picnic the early evening of a warm September day. The sun, low in the west was a golden disc. In another half hour it would drop from sight. Long shadows had fallen on the little valley, darkening the green of the trees and shrubs and tho field stretching to the left of the shal low stream. Near the water s edge the first sign of fall had appear edgaudy patches of scarlet ber ries in the sumac bushes. A dozen fete from the stream a eampfire smoldered. A girl was silting on a log, watching tne young man who knelt by the lire. t, was Toby and Tim Jamieson. Toby wore light tan jodhpurs and a white shirt, open ut the throat, the sleeves rolled up. Ex-ceut for the shirt, Toby was a symphony in tan throat and arms and lncu almost as ricniy coioreu as the honey shade of her hair. She finished tho last bite ot a steak sandwich- "It's amazing!" she said, smiling. "Who would ever have suspected you, Tim, of having talents as a cook?" He was also in ruling clonics. Tim grinned. "You've no idea how talented 1 am." What is this sales talk?" It might be." He looked up at her, but she had turned and was watching the horses, tied a little distance away, grazing. "I wish 1 could take 'Happy with me, Toby said, "when I go back to town next week." "You'll have plenty of other horses to rule. Yes. 1 know, but 1 like 'Happy. Look, Tun, how pink the sky is getting.' V W V He rose to his feet and turned at her direction. "You're crazy about the country, aren't you, Cloi- gcous; no asKeu. Yes- Its still new to ine. tins Is the first summer I've ever been in the country in my life. I'll be urry to leave." '"loud be a lot sorrier if you didn't. New York's the place to be in the fall.

"Why, yes 1 guess so." "lint. You don't seem to be veiy enthusiastic!" Toby said apologetitcally, "I didn't mean it that way, Tim. 1 was just thinking about something else ' 'I could see that, all right. Must be something important " No." Toby shook her head. I was thinking about last year, Tim. About what I was doing at tills nine a year ago." "What?" "I had a new job sitting in the window of a five-and-ten store. oiling up my luiir on curlers and then taking them down again to show how the curlers worked." Schilling say that the conferences are not cooking schools. First discussion of the afternoon will deal with tho health value of the waterless cooking of. vegetables. Then comes a consideration of the rousting of meats by the low temperature method. The third topic on the schedule is cake baking with special reference tD tlie baking of four layers at once. The afternoon concluded with an analysis of how meat, texture .is improved by modem.' methods Ot broiling.

"I'll bet you had a crowd at that window! Were the curlers any good?" "I don't know. My hair curls naturally anyhow." Tim laughed. "I guess that's what you might call a story to make your hair curl. Do you know, Gorgeous, every day in every way you become more and mote remarkable. The crazy things you have done! And the way things have happened. Just think of it in one year leaving the five-and ten store to become the 'Cinderella Heiress.' America's most photographed girl- The Darling of the Headlines. They've a dozen names for you, haven't they? D'you know what I read the other day? That a movie company want to film your life story and get you to play the lead." "You know I wouldn't do anything like that." i "A lot ot girls would break their necks for such a chance. Debutantes from the so-called 'first families' " "Well, I'd rather have my neck unbroken, thanks. Y'ou know I hale those tilings they print, Tim. And people looking . at me as though 1 were a freak. Thats one of the reasons I hate going back to New York." . Tim said quickly, "I'll tell you how you can get away from it-" "How?" . "By marrying me. Marry ine and we'll take a boat for Bali or the South Sea Islands or Majorca. Any place you say!" Ho caught her shoulders, drew her toward him. "Toby, you know how 1 feel about you!" "But, I've told you, Tim " "1 know. You've told mo you've just found your father and you think you should stay with him. but you said that three mouths ago. Besides, I'm not asking you to many me right away though 1 wish you would. I'm willing to wait. All I want is your promise that you'll marry me some day. Won't you say it, Toby?" "1 can't, Tim. Not yet." "But you will. You might just as w ell, Gorgeous, because I'm going to keep right on asking you until you do!" . ... New York in October. Crowds-thronging the avenues.
