Whatever the future of this ten dency among the big boys, it can be reported that Roosevelt himself is right now as "cocky" about the outlook as he has been, at any time in the last four years and that this "cockiness" spreads right down through the administration. The president has felt himself on the upgrade ever since Al Smith made that Liberty League dinner speech. He believes that even the hostile shrieks of big business arc subsiding behind mounting piles of industrial profits. High officials in intimate touch with the private banking industry have told Roosevelt that as business improves the fears of the industrial-financial groups are subsiding. This is the way they explain it: The administration has stood up against the threat of printing press money and the inflationists have practically folded up. . The inflation threat from excess reserves seems less menacing the longer it exists without materializing, and the more it appears that bankers aren't eager to lend rashly and that few want to borrow. ... The inflation threat from a rising stock market is discounted, CAR FOUND 0UICKLY Within two minutes after the local police last night had notified state police headquarters at Salem that a car was stolen here, the missing auto was found. Mrs. Vernon McVey told the police at 10:10 p. m. that when she emerg ed from the Christian church, near where she had parked her car, it was missing. The McVey car was found at Dallas, Or., but the three men who were in it fled before the state police there could catch them. laiaraa afAlbany, ' Oregon, poctoffle u aaeoad-claai mail.

Senator McNary's position of influence in Washington cannot be won overnight. To substitute a novice, however able, at this time would be folly nnd contrary to the best; interests of this state. r' Without regard to Senator McNary's services under Republican admlnlstrtions, he deserves reelection becpuse' of jwhpt he has done for bregon,duvins the .present regime. Though he Is a Republican, Sen- j ator McNary has been without rancor against the present admin istration.

Although the more important Republican members probably will be able to get to Cleveland, the fact that Congress is in session tends to take a -bit of the edge off a party's political show. " Roosevelt himself has arranged to be very much in the limelight during the G. O. P. session and anything his boys in Congress can do to take the limelight off Cleveland will be willingly contributed. (Couyriulit. 1936, MSA Servica, inc G. O. P.

And in a little time she forgot it hadn't been her own idea but that she had only said what Pete had written. She had long since thrown away the telegram from Pete. She accepted her increased salary as easily as she accepted her move to the executive offices and the services of a secretary. They gave her the book to adapt, nnd Linda learned what adapting meant. Where the role didn't fit the actor, the actor wasn't fitted to the role; the writer changed the role. When they brought her a copy of her original script, which Pete had sold to Honey Harmon almost half a year before, Linda thought the plot was really her own.

At lunch-time she had found a seculuded table in the Commonwealth lunch room, then wandered over the yiar niinaniin liy French and British gave Haile Selassie, deposed emperor of the now conquered African country of Ethiopia. The world may derive from this the inference that Italy wanted Haile Selassie there at Addis Ababa to be captured, thus rendering the triumph of the in vaders the more complete. This and other circumstances surrounding the Italian campaign have placed Benito Mussolini in an unfavorable light. Mussolini's assault on Haile Se lassie has all the earmarks of i New York or Chicago gang send ing its muscle men in on a rival's territory; it is as direct, as unmoral and as ugly as that. Cranted. But we delude our selves mightily if we blame it all on the rapacity and greed of Mus solini himself. Every great nation has1 done the same sort of thing. It is war itself that is ugly. A disinterested observer back in mo ihius migm nave seen our own war with Mexico in precisely the same light. Certainly, our ruthless obliteration of the western Indian nations would have looked no better. And the English conquest of South Africa, the French seizure of the Sahara, and the .maneuvers by which the Dutch flag rose over Java tire cut out of the same cloth. What It come down to is that we have no cause to work up a lather of moral indignation over what is happening to the emperor of Ethiopia. We live by a system which drives strong nations out to con quer the weak.' Wo are today reap ing the profits of that system. Can we afford to adopt a holier-than-thou attitude toward Italy If the conquest of Ethiopia dis turbs you, with its dark Implica tion that might does make right, after nil, in this modern world, your cue is to hate not Italy, not MOssolini, but war itself, nnd the world system which enables nations to profit by war. It cannot be said that there is no Justice in court at Portland, nor that it is blind, though Jack Justice's pre-repeal occupation no doubt caused others to become so. Seattle's Zioncheck is complaining that his friends arc turning against him. It seems that some of them expect even a congressman to have some sense. Since Ihe Ethiopians can't keep Addis Abnba for themselves they are bound not to leave anything in it for the Italians. A college education does not pay, says an cx-co-cd movie actress.

She had moved from the hotel t o an apartment house, bought herself a modest car, and, like everyone else in Hollywood, went to the movies. She met a few people who lived in the same apartment house, but too often found herself lonelier than she dared write to Pete that first year. A young woman with power and Linda had power since she was credited with "discoveries" need not have feared loneliness. Linda could be useful and she was attractive. She was chic. She learned to dress well. Any old hat and knitted things didn't go. In Hollywood the fashion was sports clothes, and Linda's tailored white tweed, her broad-shouldered slim-hipped tailleurs, her fresh violets, white ;or deep purple, which she always wore, her Paris-made evening frocks were distinguished where all clothes were beautiful. Her soft, clipped voice and her dignified bearing were often unkind contrast to her sensational sisters in the picture colony. Picture people wanted to know Linda for herself, as well as for what she could do for them. , She spent money recklessly on clothes, blie bought a good car, an impression but because she liked to drive a good car. She gave patties. They were small an intimate. Dinners for four or six, at the most, and never for two. Sundays, she was "ut home" from 4 to 7, serving a discreet number of cocktails and excellent food. It became smart to be invited to a Bourne Sunday afternoon.

She became a celebrity among celebrities, and she still wrote to Pete, but her letters became less frequent and told him more than she thought, Pete knew he had lost her, and pride kept him from intruding into the life she had made for herself. ' Pete put himself into his play. And one day it was done and he sent it to New York. Linda was in Hollywood 18 months before she met llastl Thorne. Not that she didn't know him bv name.

Dazzling, gargantuan, filled with contrasts, romantic, worldly and incredible. . Linda met Basil Thorne at Honey Harmon's bungalow at Malibu. She drove down with Cora Jarrclt, editor of a movie fan magazine. "Alaybc you'll like him. and maybe you won't. Most women do," Cora, speaking of Thorne. said to Linda. "It would be hard to describe him. I don't know whether he is a cad or a gentleman. I don't even know whether rhe is ugly or handsome. He's that kind.
