(It Is also be-jng remarked in Washington that the Democratic National Committee owes Kennedy money, which gives him access to Jim Farley and the White House.) Chairman James M.

One of the yarns you don't hear any rrore in the gossip trading posts of the capital is the one about Joe Kennedy, ex-chairman of SEC, being made secretary of the treasury. Tubs of butter have been spread on Mr. Kennedy by writers who dwelt on the allegations that Kennedy made a personal sacrifice by accepting the SEC job. They said that if was a fine thing to have such an able, sound, two-fisted millionaire in the government and that it would be good for the country if Roosevelt could recruit more such highminded and sane conservatives, filled with zeal for the public service. . Of course this didn't quite square with the conception of certain cynical insiders. Kennedy, a Wall Street man who had participated in one of the stock market pools exposed by Ferdinand Pecora, was one of the four men who had originally tossed in $10,000 apiece for Roosc- clt's prc-convention expenses. Hence these cynics held, he could demand any job he wanted, even in the face of general opposition, and they felt that he came to make the SEC safe for Wall Street. I TJE that as it may, if Kennedy made a personal sacrifice, he certainly has been making up for lost time. He has gone into the corporate reorganization business on a l.irgc scale. Prospectus for new securities in such reorganizations must be approved by the SEC, which is loaded with Kennedy's friends, many of them brought here by University Glee Club. The speak er will be Dr. Victor P. Morris. University of Oregon. This will be followed by a dance. More golf will be available Sunday morning and at noon guests wili be taken by the Salem club to Silver Falls park where- the Salem club will be hosts at dinner. Registration fee of $1.50 includes golf, meetings, dinner and dance and local ad clubbers are urged to attend. 13 TO GRADUATE Scio. (Special) E. P.

He must be gentle, charming and persuasive. And, failing that, he had a powerful weapon. He was not above using it. Meanwhile he would content himself with a trial of his first method. "Linda," he broke the silence, "I didn't ask you to marry mo because I thought, it was the gal-ant thing to do. I've been wanting to ask you since the first day we met. "I'm not going to pretend to VOU that there have hnon tin nthne women in my life, but I'm going to ask you to believe that you are the first woman who has ever made me feel that I would want to live up to her ideals." "Thank you, Basil." Linda didn't think that was a very enthusiastic response, but if the man would persist it was just too bad. "I haven't very much to offer you" so he was still proposing? "I don't mean money, of course." His expansive gesture of sweeping hand indicated millions of dollars. "1 am thinking of myself. I'm only an old duffer; clumsy, but I've got a heart, Linda." . a Linda was very much bored and entirely tired of this speech. "1 haven't ever had advantages. My background wasn't the sort received when Senator Tydings introduced a bill providing a Puerto Rican plebescite. The surprise and pain are out of all proportion to the amount of noise the Puerto Ricans have been making about independence of late. To listen to that talk, one would have thought that the is landers unanimously were groan ing under the iron heel of a pitiless despotism. But now that the road to independence is beginning to open, they are protesting that it is a low Yankee trick. Politics in Puerto Rico seems to be quite as messy as in the United States, if not a little more so; and the politicians have learned that the cruel repression of Uncle Sam is the handiest of all stalking horses in a hot campaign. They have agitated for independence in impassioned voices, assuring their constiucnts that if the despotic Americans would only get out the millennium would surely dawn Senator Tydings proposes to take them at their word. Hi's bill would provide for a gen eral election on the island, in which the Puerto Ricans could say once and for all whether they want to go their own way. If they voted for independence. the United States would withdraw after four years. Puerto Rico would get what the Philippines are getting. After a brief transition period, they would become as free as any people on earth. And, of course, if they voted against independence, the issue would be buried for keeps. Senator Tydings' plan will strike most Americans as highly sensible If the people of Puerto Rico want out, let them out by all means. If they don't, let them stop blaming all their woes on Uncle Sam and get down to the business of facing realities. As a matter of fact, it is quite possible that as independence actually comes in sight, it will lose Its fine glitter. Uncle Sam has been pouring relief money Into the island at the rate of $1,000,000 a month. He also has provided i $26,000,000 reconstruction pro gram. Furthermore, the American market is chiefly what keeps Puerto Rico alive. 'The native' office seeker may make political capital out of American repression so long as independence is only a distant dream When he gets a chance to make the dream tome true, ho may start singing a different song. But whether that be true or not, the Puerto Ricans should have their chance to express themselves. Get the Independence issue cleared up once and for all, and the is landers should be a great dcul happier. OLD CATECHISM EXHIBITED Monroe.- Mich.

Kkin Waw MollowW Bear A MERICAN pioneers were push-ing westward, after the Civil War, setting up new territories, building railroads, and extending telegraph lines, while Indians fought and harassed them at every advance. Chief among the red natives was a young, well-built youngster of the Brule Sioux tribe, famed especially for his powerful voice and commanding personality. He was Hollow-Horn Bear, who, at the age of 16, had joined the band led by his father in an attack on the Pawnees at the present site of Genoa, Neb. In 1868, at the age of 18, he figured in a Brule battle with U. S. troops in Wyoming, .and then in a raid on laborers building the new Union Pacific railroad.

This contention Itself served as one of the best possible arguments in favor of repudiation. It revealed glaringly the methods that tare being employed by radical agencies. They have selected tho'church one of their most useful media or dissemination of socialistic propaganda, because by "Subtly twisting the teachings of Christ they can make It appear that the Bible commands the' church to a program of economic change. , While' it is true that economic practices have been somewhat unchristian at times, and that Christianity can and does exert a beneficial influence upon economic trends', there is no Justification for the stand that -the church should participate, as the social actions commission recommendations would have It do. In a political campaign to change the form of this or any other government. The recommendations as outlined at the Oregon ' convention yesterday were obviously the same old wolf of radicalism disguised in a cloak of holiness. Introduced by a paragraph espousing the rebirth doctrine, the recommendations go on to commit the church to a policy of government ownership of oil, coal, water power, industries that produce necessities of life; to eliminate competition immediately by organizing a government monopoly of all enterprises' depending upon natural resources, and ultimately to tnke over as well industries which produce other than the so-called necessities. Even if such a program were properly within the jurisdiction of the church, its success would still depend upon the Christinnization of all who come under it. And if all people were thoroughly Christian there would be no need for such a program. The avowed goal, namely, fair! distribution of income (sometimes erroneously referred to as wealth) would become an accomplished fact without political or sociaj action. In other words if everyone were honest, unselfish and Christian there would be no oppression, no unfair inequalities. '! Thus it becomes plain thnt the duly of the church is to concentrate effort on enlarging its sphere of influence at home, rather than to waste its energy in promoting a world political movement which is entirely outside its proper realm. , - Nation-wide evangelization Is an ideal which may seem discourage-ly difficult to attain, but it is certainly as attainable as the Utopia which the social action commission report maps out, and it would be essayed without threat to religious freedom which political alliances involve. Oregon is fortunate in having such leadership as the 1936 State Baptist convention brought forth.

So it is with the Puerto Ricans, who have been trying to recover pare the new recapitalization scheme of Radio Corporation of America. Critics suggest that he did little more than "front" for the bankers' plan, but Kennedy, remarking at a stockholders' meeting that "I guess some of you will get a shock," announced his fee as $150,000. Now he has taken over responsibility for reorganization of the Paramount movie concern and his SEC pals anticipate further fat plums will fall into his lap. 'T'HE Italian embassy, where so-cial activity has been at a minimum during the Ethiopian war, is expected soon to blossom out with a series of parties. Italy, following her military triumph, will need capital for development of Ethiopia. And she is expected, as is customary in such cases, to seek it in the U. S. Thanks to J. P. Morgan & Co., , American citizens hold about" $100,000,000 in Italian government bonds, now selling at around 72. This loan was floated after 80 per cent of the Italian war debt to this country had been canceled. Experts say the Italian budget hasn't actually been balanced for 15 years and that Mussolini's financial troubles arc likely to increase. But the ballyhoo for a new private loan is likely to be along any day now. (Copyright, 1!U6, NEA Service, Inc.)

There was no simulated intensity in her plea to him. Thome hugged her with his free arm, giving her a - brotherly squeeze. You worry too much," he said. CHAP 21 GAL TWO i That wasn't exactly reassuring, and later that day Linda remembered little things about Thome's eys, a quirk at the corner of his mouth when he had said it. She felt the beginning of a disquieting cloud of doubt that was to grow with time. As she had expected, one of the telephone messages she had ignored the. day before told her that there was a change of plans and ffrj.e company was postponing the ii ip iu ouii duciiuu until me next week. If only she had seen it, she mig'ht have avoided that trip and would not now be worrying lest it become known and destroy her. Because destroy her it would. She was too important to be able to stand a breath of scandal. Only unimportant people could afford that in the movie colony where discretion was an obligation. It was too much for Linda to keep to herself. She didn't intend to tell Dix, but when he told her he had been telephoning her the night before, she told him the whole story, hoping and knowing that he would believe her. 'But why be so upset about it?" Dix asked in bis lazy way. "If you must know, Dix, I don't trust Thorne. . He isn't exactly a gentleman, and I have reason to feeling Dix grasped her by her elbow and looked into her eyes, "Did he make love to you last night?" he demanded. Linda loved that. He was jealous. "No, be only proposed to me." He let her go. "Then that's all right. 1 think you've got him all wrong. Just forget it. Linda." The unpleasant thought occurred to her that Dix really didn't care whether Thorne had made love to her or not. that his anxiety was only that she might have spoiled things for him. She dismissed .the thought its unfair and untrue. ' (To Re Continued) TWO COl'l'LKS LICENSED Manage licenses have been issued to Lcola Lambert and Baite C.

"So am I." Linda answered hortly. She might play a role bv candlelight or at a civilized hour of the day. buit it was too much to expect of her at this hour of the morning. Her thoughts just then concern ed nothing mure romantic than a not tub and fresh clothing. What ever visions floated in her mind's eye were those of steaming frag rant i unci anrt Heavenly coffee. And Hasil Thorne expected her to be romantic! At least, she thought lie did, since lie had monosed tn her. It was entirely anniircnt to him that she was not in the mood to iscuss the matter.

Still the two rode, uridled in their great coats, silent nd fatigue, quiet with their sep-rnte thoughts. Why had she ever been afraid of him, Linda wondered. He had been nice last night and now he was meek as a lamb. And he had proposed to her. It had surprised her because Hasil wasn't what he'd call a marrving man. It hadn't surprised her in the least that he hud offered her marriage instead of a less respectable proposition. Linda was the kind of girl that men propose to. .' That was nreciselv what Hasil Thorne was thinking in his glum silence. The idea of marriage op- paueo nun, out lie grudgingly admitted that marriage to a girl like Linda was the only acceptable way. The more he thought about it, the more real it became to him. He pictured the smooth continuity of life with this wel-bred girl.

"I suppose it will sound funny to you. my dear, but I've always wanted n woman to mother me. My own dear mother died when I was a little chap. A man can grow up starved for that kind of love, and few women ever appeal to him that way." "I'm sorry you think I am that one woman, Hasil." Linda replied finally. "I hope you are mistaken because there just isn't anything 1 can do about . it. I don t love you and I can t marrv you."
