Bonds, on the average, are selling for a third more than they did in 1932; slocks are more than 200 per cent higher and common stocks are two and a half times higher. All of this increase in security values has come gradually, and without interposition of speculation. In act the present securities market situation is almost phenomenal. Explanations arc numerous and varied, and so, probably, are the causes. Among these is the large amount of European buying which has been in progress during the last two years. , In a recent issue of the Saturday Evening Post a prominent London capitalist who is heavily interested in American securities is quoted in velt jam through his pet holding company bill last session. Congress this year has thrown out the White House-approved P&ssamaquoddy and Florida ship canal projects without a murmur from Roosevelt and is gumming up administration tax plans, p The recession from ovcr-whelming Democratic congressional majorities expected next November probably will be in a conservative direction and UY RODNEY DUTCHER aKA ffervlre SlnnT CurreafioadeRI WASHINGTON. In addition to the fact that any Republican elected to the presidency this year would almost certainly face a Congress Democratic in both houses, there is also a real possi bility that Roosevelt will be reelected . along with a Congress which could probably be de scribed as anti-New Deal. Although it won't be possible lor Republicans to come anywhere near changing complexion of the Senate, and Democrats are almost sure to retain a sizable pa per majority in the House, there wilt oe more Republicans in Con gress. In concert with Democratic members who consider much of the New Deal too radical, they arc likely to give Roosevelt if he is re-elected much more opposition than he has had in the past. Perhaps enough, in fact, to stymie the president, who recently asserted that "social pioneering" was only in its infancy. a TF you identify the "New Deal" as an advanced program of political and economic progrcssivism or liberalism as it professes to be some of the following factors will be of profound interest, to both the simon-pure New Dealers who have glowing hopes of new "pioneering" in the next Roosevelt administration and the conservative opposition which fears Roosevelt will be re-elected, but hopes the "worst" is over: 1 Congress "already is only semi-controlled by the administration.

"The real reason I'm on my way east is to find a play. I do wish you had another. What my producers want is to cast me in something about a little working girl." She sighed. "It seems that the public is more interested in working girln than glamorous ladies these flays. Of all things, they want mo to find a play about a stenographer. Something where there is a big bad boss and, and ." Honejr had more than that to say, but when she arrived at the boss Dart, Pete was on his feet, a new light in his eye and his hat in his hnnd. "Pi'oncy," he said, "I have got anot.her play! And it's about a stenographer and two big bad bosses only one isn't bad...." "Two?" Honey asked. "One a Meniou and one a Gable," he promised. "But I must see it!" Honey exclaimed. Pete was already on his way to the door. "It's down at the office. I'll be back with it in 10 minutes." One hour and 10 minutes later Linda sat up in bed and pulled the cord on her bed lamp. Below the bell was pealing insistently. She drew a robe over her nightgown, thrust her feet in to slippers and went to the window. "Who's there?" she called. "Linda, come down and let me in. I've wonderful news for you," Pete called back to her. "I'll not come down', and you have nothing to say that would interest me. Good night Mr. Gardiner." Linda shut the window with an unmistakable bang. The bell pealed again. "He'll wake the neighbors if he keeps that up," Linda said as she trotted down the stairs and opened the door. "In addition to being the rud est " "Listen, Linda, I can explain. I've been with Honey Harmon all evening " "I guessed that," she said coldly. " and she's bought the scenario. "What scenario?" asked Linda, startled into forgetting her anger for the moment. "Yours!" (To Be Continued) Friday, May 1 5 p. trt..

Morensen Co., National Advertising Representatives, BE CAREFUL HOW YOU BITE Within the last few weeks several solicitors have appeared in this county soliciting funds in advance Xor promised services. , While it does not necessarily follow that all of these solicitors are racketeers, so many of them are that it behooves the public to be extremely wary. In fact the best policy for general adoption is to say no when one is asked by a stranger r transient for a down payment on anything before it is delivered, whether it be u magazine, course of study, set of books, or a refrigerator. ,Of course some magazine solicitors and book agents are legitimately engaged, but as a rule it is not difficult for the wise to separate the wheat from the chaff. The bona fide -solicitor will generally be able to furnish local references, and will not be in a big hurry to get away. The racketeers Usually arc' high pressure men whose game is get the money and flee, all In a day or two, before the police and newspapers have a chance to expose them. There arc even fake mail order schemes which are just legal enough to comply with postal regulation. Among these arc civil service schools, who imply assurance that their graduates will get civil service jobs. The government has repeatedly warned . that these schools are in no way connected with the civil service, und that their graduates have no more Chance than anyone else to pass civil service examinations. The best preparation fur civil service is general education, which cannot be acquired within a few weeks or months. These so-called "schools" have no advance Information as to what questions will be asked in civil service examinations, and therefore cannot anticipate the answers. Another proposition that looks suspicious is one that offers a position as guard at I)innevillc dam to graduates of a training course Unit costs upward of $30. We know a youth can get all kinds of training for guard duty and be paid while he is learning. Furthermore the government Is not going to favor these students over the thousands of experienced guards who have applied for the relatively few positions, if any, which may be available at the dam. i It is best to Investigate thor oughly any offer by a solicitor. If it Is legitimate it can wait. No one is going to lose any opportunity by investigating, and investigation will generally reveal thai the offer is available for less money right here at home. EUROI'E RESPECTS V. S. Focsome little time there has explanation of Kuropean interest n American securities. He slated, says the Post, that while at first the New Deal experiments were eyed askance by European investors, the people of Europe be thought themselves that in the United Slates many crazy experiments have been tried before and have been abandoned, all without great harm to the country. After each "silly" spell, this financier pointed out, the American people have come to their senses, settled down and gone back to work. So, he added, Europe has come lo the conclusion that the United States is u pretty good country to bet on. In other wolds Europe is confi dent that history will repeat, and that the American people will soon be forgetting all these schemes for creating something out of nothing which are just now occupying their attention, and will go back to producing real wealth with labor, as they have done in the past, reinsuring their country against loss of its position as the most prosper ous and progressive nation in the world. That is what the wise heads of Europe think. II is in the future of the United States that they have greatest faith, so it is here that they are investing their money. When his confidence is felt also by the people of America them selves, then will prosperity und happiness return. Lebanon is more fortunate than her sister towns,, (it least in this vicinity. There came lo this office today four letters bearing Lebanon postmarks dated April 31. We fear, however, that the day of reckoning will come when the day added to April is subtracted from some subsequent month, unless the Lebanon post office finds some way ofl slrf tching the year.

At least, taxpayers have an alternative, if a grim one. conservatives now in Congress doubtless will hold their own. 9 Presidents invariably have a more trying time with Congress in their second terms, when political futures are no longer so bound up with that of the executive, when new patronage is scarce, and when the parry begins to speculate as to the president's successor. A Powerful interests, notably the electric power groups, even though they may despair of beating Roosevelt, are now out to defeat individual members who have fought hardest for some of his more liberal measures such as the holding company act. Two towers of progressive strength, more "New Ttoal- ish" than most Democrats, will be' lost to the administration in the next Congress with prospective etirement of Senator George w. Norris of Nebraska and Senator Edward P. Costigan of Colorado. Congressman Edward C. Moran of Maine, one of the outstanding House progressives, also is quitting, because Jim Farley has thrown his support behind Gov ernor Brann and other Maine conservatives.

What is it that you have, my girl, that ties men to you with such utter devotion?" She gave an angry glance at the old-fashioned clock on the mantel then, und went back to her book. It was the newest best-seller, but, for all the attention she was able to give it, it might have been a statistical report ot taxes in 184!.. The clock struck 11 and Linda closed her book with a bang. Definitely she was not waiting up. She wouldn't wait until that hour for imy muny. And what right did Peter P. Gardiner have to treat her so rudely? He had distinctly said that he would arrive at 8 o'clock. He hadn't, and he hadn't telephoned. Very well, he'd never do that again. She could get along very well without him. If she never saw him again it would be all right!

Hadn't Holbein told him to "try Hollywood" with his play? He hadn't intended it for pictures but when Fate dropped a golden-haired opportunity, in the person of Honey Harmon, but two inches from his lap, who was he to refuse it? It meant everything to him, and everything meant Linda. If Honey liked the play as a vehicle for herself and buy it, he could have Linda. There would be money enough to support a wife. He tried to talk about it in the afternoon and he tried again during dinner and when finally Honey demanded to see the manu script immediately, he brought it forth and forgot to telephone Linda. Then he realized that Linda was waiting, he was sure that he could explain to her. ;.' . An excecdingy pretty frown appeared on her alabaster brow as Honey pored over the pages of Pete's play. She curled up in a mound of pillows and assumed pose 61 as she perused page after page and Pete smoked cigaret after cigaret, not daring to inter rupt the train of thought. If there were any. There was. "But Petie" how he hated to be called Petie "It isn't me!" Pete didn't answer that. He still hoped. "It's too marvelous, but it's not for me. It's sophisticated." "It is sophisticated," Pete agreed, and smiled at her. "But it's a new kind of sophistication. Julie is young and glamorous. Shcs deep. She is you. "Oh, darling!" Honey, the deep one, rose from her pillows and touched him lightly on the cheek. "You really do know me, don't you?" She ran her hand through her curls, placed a cigaret in an ivory holder and glided across the room. She looked like a woman who is deeply troubled and must disclose something that can be disclosed only to a trusted friend. You sec 1 can't be what I really am. My public wants me to be something entirely different." Her eyes pleaded with Pete to understand. He didn't. Hp knew Honey's pictures and managed to point this out gently. . "No, you don't understand. I'm just a little pawn to my producers. You never can tell what they are going to do, but before I left Hollywood, we had conferences oh, so many of them and you know big bugaboo Box Office directs us all.' My producers simply won't let me make another sophisticated picture." "All right, Honey," Pete smiled charmingly, and picked up his script. "We'll skip it. I wanted you to see it." "I think it's grand, Pete, and I'm sure you'll sell it. You ought to be in Hollywood." Pete didn't tell her . what he thought of Hollywood.1 He said Schilling retains its delicate flavor in all DESSERTS IF IT'S EGGS POULTRY - CREAM LIVE CHICKENS.

The "movie star," Miss Honey Harmon, appeared clearly in Lin da's mind. Miss Honey Harmon adoringly into Pete Gardiner's eyes as she snuggled up to him in her car. Linda wished she hadn't seen them that afternoon. Since it looked as though Pete were going to be another memory in her life, Linda wished that she hadn't seen him acting like a lovesick school-boy. Of course she'd have to see him again, she thought, brushing her hair savagely. Shed' have to see him every day at the office. At that moment the Blade, her career, the limitations of her life, presented a drab prospect, and site tried to look ahead at what tlie years might hold for her. True, she hadn't been sure she wanted to marry Pete. She loved him, in a way, but, from the moment that she had promised to marry him, she had felt she was doing it to make him happy. She laughed then, but not very lightly. Make him happy? What was the matter with women? Linda was only 20, and the only two men she had given any affection to had let her down. First Dix and now Pete. The strength of her affection for Pete lay in her belief in his character. And he had gone running off with this blondincd little movie actress. He was probably holding Hon-, ey's hand at the moment and eating up her words, feeling like an Irresistible male. Linda wished she lived in a world of women. Pete Gardiner wasn't eating up Honey Harmon's words, but he was hanging cm them. What Honey had to say to him this night was the most important thing in his life at the moment, for nearly ten days since Honey Harmon had come to Newtown, Pete had been dancing attendance World William rguson naTar) tar- , FISH NOTED FOR.
