Burkhart lr Democratic Candidate For v- County Judge Subject to May Primary 'Economical Business Administration of County Affairs With a Square Deal to All" (Paid advertisement) might have expected was dissolved by her sudden haste and anxiety over their coming trip. Dinner was one of those falsely bright things. When it was over, they sat before the hearth fire and sipped a liquer. And, quite without anything personal, as Linda had expected, Thome proposed that they start their long drive. The drive to Pasadena and thence on the road to San Bernardino was a drive meant for lovers. The night grew colder and more fragrant. They sped over ribbons of smooth roads. Four hours seemed pleasantly fast in passing. Linda was relieved, and relaxed for the once in company with Basil Thome. At Hemct, they stopped in the one small garage. The motor was behaving badly. "Gas-feed trouble," Thome said. They resumed their journey after a half hour. The yuca trees with their white points like gleaming candles against the curtain of black sky marked their swift journey over the mountain roads. There were fewer houses now. There were houses widely separated. There were no houses. In the das,h-board light they studied the directions Linda had brought from her office. And now they were on the last lonely, bleak road that marked the end of their journey. Signposts, the only mark of civilization, marked the way to location of the Commonwealth company. And there they were.

As people watch and take part in the struggle for jobs, the political efforts, the economic, the social, are easily seen. But those alone do not constitute the front line in the fight. Silently and unremittingly, the laboratory is contributing its share... A few years ago, Dr. F. R. Weid-lein of the Mellon Institute points out, only three laboratories in this country were working on the problem of finding new uses for old products, and on that of discovering new products. . Today . there are 1600 laboratories taking part in those vital quests, Almost every day their discoveries are being translated into terms of new jobs not necessarily the same jobs that men held before the depression. It is known now that many of these jobs never will exist again. The hope lies in the new jobs that arise from making new tilings which the laboratories arc devising. Take steel, for instance. Steel production today is only about 0 per cent below the record set in 1929. It is as great as it was in 1928; that is, about 50,000,000 tons of Ingots a year. ' This has been accomplished in spite of the fact that the construction and railroad industries arc not as yet buying anything like the quantity of steel they used to buy. . The answer lies in the demand from the automobile industry, and in the demand from industries which were of no importance before the depression, but which have become big users of steel. The product itself is no longer standardized. Steel isn't just steel any more. It is custom-made today, each lot alloyed especially for a particular use. Should the normal big users of steel, the construction and railroad industries, return to the market, there Is no reason why steel should not employ as many men as it ever did, despite the labor-saving devices of the last four years. If it docs, the laboratory must be given due credit. The United Slates chcmirnl industry is already the greatest in ' the world. Yet industries like artificial silk, rayon, sugar, milk products, textiles,, automobiles, oil and petroleum, plasties, rubber, mid radio are in mere infancy. Discovery of new uses for products doesn't mcun mere displacing of old products and workmen. For it is estimated that only about 1ft per cent of production Is concerned with absolute necessities. The rest is luxuries or conveniences. HA MAM'S RYl OtOWN (fldtdWhhfcay, 90 Proof tight and Mild.

It is from the laboratory that these will come. Thus, many see in the test tube rays of hope that are not clear on the strictly political or economic horizon. VOTE AND VOTE EARLY County Clerk R. M, Russell's sugffl'stion that those who vote Friday do so as early as possible deserves consideration, both from the standpoint of the public as a whole, which is interested in the outcome of the election, and from the viewpoint of the taxpayer, who is also interested in saving I.imself money. If ballots are so cast that the counting boards can keep busy all afternoon, there will be compara tively few ballots to count after the polls close at 8 o'clock p. m. If the majority of voters wait until late afternoon or evening to visit the polls, then the most of the votes will be left for the board to count after the polls close. This will mean that counting must extend far into the night, and that the boards will be entitled to claims for extra compensation. Thus the announcement of results will be greatly delayed and elec tion costs may be increased by tardy voting. The polls will be open for 12 hours, from 8 a. m. to 8 p. m. Of course not alt voters will be able to ballot before late afternoon, but many can do so if they will but think of it, and they owe it to their fellow-voters and to themselves to think of it. Another worth while suggestion we make ourselves today as we have often done before. That Is, everyone who is interested in good government should vole. He owes it to himself and society to do this, too. If wo are to continue enjoy ment of personal liberty under democratic government we must take advantage of that greatest of all liberties the franchise. Other wise it will be taken from us, and wijh it will go all tho rest. One vote may be a small thing, but collectively the ballots cast at an election are the voice of tho people. And so, at Friday's primaries, let everybody vote nnd vote curly.

NOW till ON WITH TIIK SIOIIV CHAPTER XIX Sometimes at night, with the din of carpenters' hummers still ringing in her ears, the incessant repetition of orchestral rehearsals, the piercing darts of light from the brilliant studio lights still hurting her eyes, Linda lay in the cool fragrance of her bed and wished herself back in Newtown. When u girl was engaged to be married back there, being engnu SaTTaaBP ess Linda answered, without looking up. , "Company will be finished by and leaving immediately for the mountains. Mr. Forman says you must be on location early tomorrow morning, and wants to know you'll drive over with him," her secretary reported. Then Linda remembered that this was the night she was to dine with Basil Thome. She'd have to break her engagement again! Would Thornc understand this time? Linda chewed her pencil pensively. "Tell him I'll call him back." When she was alone Linda telephoned Basil Thome. "I don't expect you to believe me, Basil," she said. "But here it is: we're in a terrific rush to finish the Laurel story you know I've been doing tho script and the company has got to report at the San Jacinto location tomorrow morning. I had expected and Wanted to dine with you, but how can I do it and get there time?" Linda had counted on his understanding and once more postponing their engagement. "I'm crushed," he answered "but not thwarted. We will dine ond I'll drive you down in the Mercedes. It shouldn't take more than four hours. We can dine at and arrive by 1. I'll expect you." There are times when a lady has no choice. Linda had none; she went back to her work. It was nearly 7 when she realized the time. There was a "pile of notes on her desk. She ran through them quickly; extracting the motor route to the scene of location in the San Jacinto mountains southeast of San Bernardino. She stuffed it in her bag and ran for her car. "I'm not wearing the dinner dress," she told her maid. "I'll wear a crepe and want a warm coat. Pack a bag to last a week. I'm driving out to location tonight nnd won't be back in that time. Quickly!" a a Linda took a taxi to Basil Thome's home in Brentwood. He had said he was going to drive her in one of his fast cars. She found him in dinner ! clothes, suave and charming, a ' perfect host presiding over a per-, feet dinner. Her nervousness over what attitude or behavior she V4y K36NEAServica, let afternoon. She accepted quickly and gratefully, and then had to break the engagement because she couldn't get away from Commonwealth City. She hated having to break it, and feared she would not hear from him again. Her fear of that was not as sincere as she hoped. She didn't really want to see him. She need not have worried. Thornc ulso was in the picture industry. And he was persistent. He telephoned on Saturday, and asked her to dine with him at his home on Monday. Linda had to think quickly this time. Remembering her last visit to his home, she didn't want to permit such a thing to happen again. She tried tactfully to sug gest that he dine with her, re minding him of the arts of her cook. With tact that equalled alters, Thornc reminded her that she had completely forgiven him for his lapse on that first occasion and that this was her opoprtunity to prove her forgiveness was sincere. By the way," he said at that point, "I'm going to use that young friend of yours Carter. I m taking him largely on your suggestion." After that there was only one thing for Linda to say. She accepted his invitation to dine with him at his home the following Monday, and tried to be philo- overstep the least bit, job or no job for Dix. Linda would repeat her original performance. She would leave. She didn't tell Dix what she was going to tlo, even when he tnlrl her hn bH hnorH frnm Thome and was elated by the news that tit last his chance was coming. She was afraid Dix would She knew Dix had forgotten her reluctance to introduce him to Thornc and paid no attention to her perturbation when he had sug- gested it. Thome telephoned Montlav morning to remind her that she was dining witli him that night. As though she needed that re- minder! Linda selected a frock that was not too attractive and broke her usual date to have her hair done. She knew that she would look weary by 8. The company was hoping to finish shoot- jna the lust sequence in the pie week between if they finished the picture that day. a a a a She was deep in her manuscripts at noon when her secretary, putting aside the telephone, said. "Miss Hotitnc, Mr. Korman's office is calling." "Take the message. Sylvia." 2 if on 8 gine coughed and sputtered. They were there, but they were alone! Thre were cabins, but no light came from them. And it was bitter cold in those mountains. 'But I don't understand. The company was to be here!" Linda cried to Thome, bent over the open hood of the motor. "Probably couldn t gel out. That's picture business," he ans wered from the motor aeptns. Linda looked at the cabins, shivered and looked at Thome. (To Be Continued) Stolen Auto Found; Runaway Boys Held Waldo Munsey's automobile was stolen Monday night from its parking place but the owner was inconvenienced but little, for the car was recovered before daylight. The theft was reported at 9:50 o'clock. A few hours later a freight truck driver reported to the night police that he saw a car he believed stolen parked on the Pacific highway near Tangent. Officer Clay Kirk and Deputy Sheriff Mike Southard investigated and found the car, which they identified. In it they also found the alleged thieves, Bill Giovannetti, 15, and Martin Mack, 13, Seattle run-away boys. Both were asleep. District Attorney Weatherford is awaiting word from Seattle as to whether or not the boys are wanted there before taking local action.
