She would show them that her faith was not displaced. Dix loved her and he would make good for her sake. For his own primarily, she knew in her heart, but wasn't that the way with men since time began? She saw no flaw in him, no mistakes in her own feeling for him. 'She was not the first woman in ".-'' V. , f j speech and "description" of it delivery. This said it was a "sensational" speech, told how Dickinson emphasized certain points "with studied deliberation," and declared he had exhibited cansiof dog food to the Senate, :' As a matter of fact, Dickirlson displayed no dog food and had to explain that he had it in his office. All this was another example of the Republican national committee's foozled publicity, which is rapidly becoming notorious causing the strategists behind the Governor Landon candidacy to tear their hair. It gave newspaper correspondents a chance to write funny stories and Democratic senators a chance to take a lot of the edge off the Dickinson speech. a THIS calls to mind the rumof that Prof. Asher Hobson, one of the Republican national committee's new "brain trusters," inspired the Dickinson manuscript. Until recently Hobson was connected with the Department of Agriculture and the new AAA soil conservation program. His colleagues regarded him as rather a New Dealer. There are certain dangers in attaching a "brain trust" to a political organization and the Republican committee has been having trouble with one or two of it brain trusters, whose ideas at o. solution of national problems are so logical as to be more radical than New Deal panaceas. The Democratic national c6m-mittee, perhaps on the theory that brains and politics don't mix, won't allow a brain truster within half a mile of it, although the administration itself is full of them. tCopyriBllt. 1936. NKA Service, inc.! BY RODNEY DLTCHER IV E A Hervlea (Hal! CnrreapandeMt ryASHINGTON The size of the audience which listened to the "canned dog food" speech of Senator L. J. Dickinson (Rep., Ia.), fluctuating as it did between a low point of one senator and a high water mark of five senators, might be taken as an approximate measure of the enthusiasm in Washington over the senator's candidacy for the presidency. Failure of the speech to make an effective issue, and certain aspects of it which incited to laughter, provided an example of the sort of thing which confines the Dickinson support to tiny fragments of the Republican party. Few who sat through the senator's long and dreary keynote speech at the Chicago convention four years ago have ever quite forgiven him. It is at least a ten-. able theory that Dickinson's aspirations for the presidency were settled then and there. But "Hell Roaring Dick," as he is called, had a secret conference with Herbert Hoover a few weeks ago and all who talked with him thereafter noticed a new gleam in his eye. They gathered the distinct impression that, second only to Mr. Hoover, Senator Dickinson was Mr. Hoover's candidate for the Republican nomination, a a WHEN Dickinson rose to tell the " world that 20,000,000 cans of dog food were being consumed by human beings, everyone felt that this was his first big blast in a plunge for the presidency.

She was glad that she had been able to get a small part for the little extra who had told her about Dix. But time went on and Dix was getting nowhere. He came to her, at last, and told her he was going back to extra work. "I don't want you to do that, darling. If it were a part even a small one it would be worth something, but, as an extra, your face will get to be known by the directors and you won't get out of that rut." Then, very casually, "If you need money until something comes along I could loan you some. He kissed her hands. "I don't need money, honey. Only I'm getting tired of waiting around. If something doesn't break, I think I'll go back to New York and try radio." 'Oh, no, you can't go back to New York!" How could she let him go? , You ve been wonderful, drag ging me out to show, but I don't seem to get over. The one man I want to meet is Basil Thome. He's the only one making musi cals worth trying for." Linda didn t say anything then. "I've been trying to meet him, but he's inaccessible." He waited for a moment. "You know him. don't you?" "Yes, she said shortly. But I m afraid I can't do anything for you there." Dix sighed and ran his fingers through his hair. Wisely he said nothing for a few minutes that seemed like hours. "Look here, couldn't you just ask him in for a cocktail for me?" 1 'Fraid not." Linda didn't look at him while she lit her cigarct. But when he had gone she picked up the telephone book the little private one in which she had jotted down Thome's number the night she had gone to dine with him. She found the number and, hoping he would not be in, dialed it. 'Hello," she- said. "I think I've punished you long enough. Would you still like to see me?"

When she wasn't seeing Dix, Linda was usually on a buying spree. She bought heavenly clothes. She had a sable scarf, a silver fox, a tiny coat of ermine. Then, in a frenzy of happiness, she had her apartment redecorated by Markell, Hollywood's most expensive decorator. She had her hair cut in Victorian bangs. She did everything she could think of to make her outward self over into something she had never been because her inward self was so happy. Dix's footfall on the floor before ho opened tho door.

This point was admirably brought out recently by Msgr, Michael J. Ready of Washington-assistant general secretary of the National Catholic Welfare Confer ence, in a speech in Cleveland. Msgr. Ready's argument was simple and direct. The country, he said, simply cannot and will not put up forever with unemployment, hunger, injustice, and greed. If the ordinary, Cod-fearing citizen fails to make an effective protest gainst these things through his church, his civic groups, his use of the ballot, or whatnot someone else is go ing to. If that someone else turns out to be a bushy-haired individual with an idea that all our ills will be solved if we confiscate all bunk accounts larger than $75, the or dinary citizen has only himself to blame. "In a word," says Msgr. Ready, we must hunger and thirst after justice to save the soul of society. For, I say boldly, the preservation of Christian society depends upon our courage in making it really Christian. Do we wish to tuke the leader ship In this task of reconstruction and perfect a society on the specifications of Christian social teaching, or shall we leave the task to crock-pot reformers?" Stupid and selfish as we often seem to be, the number of intelligent and level-headed citizens, nevertheless, Is greater than the number of those who can be taken in by the honeyed words ot the panacea salesman. If some ism or other finally does overwhelm the country, it will be simply because the great mass of tho people waited too long before letting thoir hearts and their consciences drive their brains to the task of putting tho national house in order. Anent its editorial discussion of sea-gulls the Oregonian apprises one of Its correspondents that one man's guess is as good as another's as to why there are few gulls in Hawaii or the south seas. Our guess is that, since seagulls ore scavengers and depend upon dead fish for a livelihood, they have been crowded nut of the islands by the beachcombers.-"." Attention candidates.

EACH DAY MOTHER'S DAY Mother's Day is going to be upon us one of these Sundays, and if the past is any guide to the future the occasion will bo marked by a great deal of useless gush. It seems to be a habit of ours to work ourselves up to a . perfect lather of sentimentality about something one day in the year, and then to ignore it for the other 364 days. Not that the sentiment isn't very pleasant and touching. There is something hearUwarming about the custom of setting aside one day to let Moth- know that she is loved and' appreciated. The flowers, the little gifts, the extra attentions that appear "on Mother's Day come from tho heart, and it's' good for us to give them. But why, oh, why, must we try to pack, It all into one day? Why can't we carry over a little of this sentiment for use the rost of the year? '"' In 'the first place, Mother isn't just the gray-haired old lady' of the Mother's Day "pictures. Silo's a lot of people, some of them old and some of them young, some of them rich and some of them poor. She's the girl at the spindle in the textile mill ' and. the woman back of the department store counter, the dining-room waitress and the telephone girl," llio "farmer's wife' and the woman on relief. Being all these people, and more besides, she has a few. common wants. tliat are in evidence every day in the year. Sho wants a de-cont measure, of economic security and a chance to look' forward to old age without undue fear. She wants things for her children a comfortable home, a good schooling, a chance to grow through a happy childhood to useful manhood and womanhood. She wants a world that will stay put without dissolving, every sd often, Into the chaos of war or economic breakdown. Are we doing a tenth part of what we could do, day in and day out to provide those things for her? We ignore the old-iie pension movement so scandalously thnt it falls into the hands of brainless ond irresponsible cranks and quacks. We put into one squndlon of cruisers' more money than we have spent bn slum clearance since our nation ;was founded, We find' hundreds of millions for our army and cut down on the school and play-ground budget. We let children waste and die from diseases that our science could prevent, and we do next to nothing to 'abolish vjar from the world.' ' And if you don't mind hard-boiled language every time we do these things, of eonsunt to the doing of them through our laziness or stupidity', wo kick Mother right in the teeth. Mother's Day is u fine institution. We colild approach it with a cicaror conscience If wo did just a little more for Molhor on the other 304 days. - ITS IIP TO US Whatever else the last few years may have been, they certainly have constituted a great field day for the royal order of crackpots, It Is doubtful it this country ever before taw such a hugo number of panaceas arid isms being advocated at one time; You can look over the field and take your choice. If you can't find at least one booth that offers the wares you like, you are at liberty to gd out and set up one of your own. Now the spectacle of all those panacea salesmen crawling out from under planks and urging us to save our country by doing this, that, or the other unusual and pe culiar thing, is disturbing to a great number' of sensible citizens But what these sensible citizens usually overlook is the fact that they themselves have cleared the road for the procession of crack pots, by failing to make an effee live protest against the ills which R.M.RUSSELL Candidate for Republican Nomination for County Clerk Experienced in Probate and Circuit Court procedure.
