Nutting that casting first stones was a form of entertainment. Esther RowelL, the famous old character actress,- was one of Linda's best friends, and it was from her that Linda again heard about the night she wanted never to remember again. - "I don't believe a word of it," Mrs. Rowell told her. "Or, if it is true that you spent the night with Thorne, I am sure the circumstances were accidental and entirely innocent. I don't think you are a fool in any way. And I don't think you have bad taste. Don't make any explanation to me if it isn't true, you must stop it. I've been hearing it about, and it is my impression that Thorne started it himself." "It isn't true," Linda said through set lips. "And I'm sure it must have come from some other source. -I can't imagine Mr. Thorne giving any such information. Why, he has asked me to marry him!" "Men without principle have been known to do strange things to force ladies to arrive at proper conclusions." Linda couldn't believe that of Thorne. In her code when a man thought enough of a woman to ask her to marry him, he did not jeopardize her reputation. She got in her roadster and drove to Santa Monica. She found Basil Thorne lunching on the set, and asked him to join her in her car. They drove to a deserted spot and Linda brought the car to a .By Fred Editor Francyl Howard has shown us a piece of several layers of wall paper, taken from an old building recently remodelled. We are unable to give the name of the owner of the property, as he prefers to have no publicity on his part. The section, saved by one of the workmen is about two feet by a foot, and coincidently is shaped very much like Linn county. In the section there are eight layers of paper. The first or original one is the part we, as a chronicler of Old Time Albany events, are interested in. As it was taken from an un-plastered house, the side next to tne board ceiling is quite plain for a fifty four year old paper, partly exposed. This particular piece of newspaper was undoubtedly from the Herald, a fact we have understood from the display type used and the makeup of the page. An I item suggests its age: COLLEGIATE INSTITUTE Albany, Or. The third term will begin Monday, Jan. 31, 1681. For particulars see Rev. Elbert N. Condit, personally. This evidently had been running as an advertisement for awhile. The only news item is headed "A Fight with Rattlesnake Jim."

Linda was a little tired of her career and sought refuge in dreaming of the future even when the present was so terrible important. She ceased worrying about Thorne in her anxiety over her contract and would have forgotten the incident entirely had she not found herself at Andre Allen's party, discussing the mountain sequence of the picture they had finished making that day. "I left the day before the last scenes were shot," Linda said in answer to some. question. : Honey Harmon was in the little group. She slabbed an olive in her glass and raised wide eyes to Lilian s lace. "You mean the week before. don t you? she asked sweetly. . T u. , V 1 aau ner" sen. naci mat Dcen a slip on fore that she and Thorne... All manner of things jumbled in Linda's mind. Honey! Thorne! Gossip! Thome's promise or had it been a promise? But Honey and Thorne had not seen each other.. Honey and Pole Gardiner. .. .Linda gave up. "Don't you think it's wonderfully interesting out there?" Honey asked. - "It was Interesting making the picture. I don't know anything much about' the country around there and had little chance to see her fleet and her air force. Talk of war and revolution, unheard for years, began to be heard on every hand. It is hard to tell whether econ omic trouble causes political trou ble, or vice versa. Maybe the two things more or less cause each other. But the one obvious fact is that they go hand in hand. A prosperous Europe tends to be a peaceful Europe; and unprosperous Europe is ripe for war and revolt. Stating the case like this only emphasizes the world's dire need for finding the road to internation al economic recovery and finding it quickly. If . the world hopes to live in peace It must, apparently, learn the secret of keeping healthy its trade and finance. 50 Inoculated at Sweet Home Clinic Fifty more Sweet Home school pupils were innoculatcd with toxoid against diphtheria, and were vaccinated Thursday by Dr. Robert Langmack. assisted bv J uanitn Johnston, county health nurse, at ine iswcet Home school yesterday.

According to his rcDort to the ucmocrat-Hcrald the firm won both a first and a second nlace in the 1935 safety campaign conduct ed by the American Petroleum institute.

WELL DONE, VOTERS Linn county's voters yesterday showed excellent judgment in more ways than one, despite op portunity for several errors. Particularly in regard to their support of Senator Charles Mc Nary did the Republican voters ac' quit themselves with credit. They gave him a total vote exceeding by SO per cent the combined vote of his: two opponents. Rumor has it that 'Senator McNary was not confident of winning Linn county The results of yesterday's elec- Won, then, must have been doubly gratifying to him as it concerns this county. . , ' , Linn county's showing on the senatorial vote was in line with that of .the state as a whole, and the veteran Oregon senator's suc cess was such that a prediction of his certain election is justified, Voters of both parties applied common sense In nominating all incumbent officers who were can didates, and the variations between the majorities or pluralities these incumbents received indicates that the voters of Linn county have quite accurately appraised their officials and were not voting blindly. . i In nominating D. M. Rohrbough to the office of county iudee the Republicans voiced loudly their disapproval of. mud-slinging and their repudiation of campaigning of unfounded . statements and falsehood." ,' There may have been confusion in the minds pfome voters, but generally spealtlng they kept their t heads and gave evidence of being competent to select - their public servants. ' ' ! The only real cause for regret or alarm over yesterday's primary, was the fact that only about half of the '.registered voters cast bal lots. This means that SO per cent of the (people are doing the gov- ernlng jfor the rest. However one may find solace In the belief that peril ap? the non-voters would not have altered results had they gone to the polls. Anyway, the lists of Republican and Democratic nominees as they appear, today promise Linn county with continuation of good government, whoever may be elected next November. PEACE UKES PROSPERITY Poland slides off the gold standard, and French stock market prices sag heavily in the face of a radical election victory; and in these things may be read a forecast of further political unrest which has been making that luckless continent, Europe, . so unhappy. For rather more than the first half of the post-war decade, European finance and trade were highly unsettled; Bnd those years were also a time of great political unrest. Revolt and counter-revolt swept central Europe. Italy Indulged In a Fascist revolution. France marched into Ruhr.- Turkey fought the Greeks. Within and without, each country faced disorder and acute discontent. a Then, in 1925 or thereabouts. business improved. Currencies became stabilized, international trade revived, war debt and reparations questions were given temporary settlement. And straightway political conditions improved. i Tho Locarno Treaty was signed, the Ccrman republic took a new lease on life; if nothing much was actually done about disarmament, the nations at least found it In their hearts to talk about it. The Kellogg Pact was signed amid fine talk about International frlen&hlp. Statesmen found It less necessary to turn the gendarmes loose on their own people. - Then came another change, about five years later. An economic crisis developed in Austria, moved on to Germany, spread all across the continent; and before long it was reflected in ' a v new, more serious political tension. Germany embraced dictatorship. Spain had a revolution. Italy was driven to a desperate foreign war. of be no A lacher, proprietor. Meats, etc. Dave was not here long, and soon lost track of his whereabouts. So much for a patch off the bottom layer of eight different kinds of paper plastered on an old Albany building, not yet identified. There was a group of four men in Albany several months ago. It transpired the men formed a ladder with a decade between each one, as follows: John Pipe 48, Ed. Sears 58, Burr Sloan 68, Fred Nutting 78. Since then, one of them, a citizen with a splendid record, Ed. Sears, has gone over the great borne, and we mourn the death of a useful citizen. Ed was peculiarly a man who, unostentatiously, in a quiet way did what he had to do well, in his family and in his business, which he conducted success fully, after the death of his father. C. W. Sears, with whom he had previously been associated in the planing mill business. C. W. Sears and family came from Salem here, when Ed. was quite young. There were two planing mills near each other, on Water street, the Second one being about where the hobo camp was located for several years. Those were days when there was much building and a large demand for sash, doors, etc. One of the first mill men was Nelson Wright, then J. F. Backensto, father of Mrs. Merrill, Sam Alt-house, father of Anna and Mary Althouse. who continue to reside at the old family home on Fifth street, near Lyon; Ed. Zeyss, George Hochstedler before Mr. Sears took charge of the west plant. Ed. Sears was educated in Albany and went into the business of his father, with him. He was fortunate in his marriage to Miss Custer, who survives him, with one son. Pete. Mrs. Sears mother was formerly Mrs. M. Day, who when ricd again. Among the children by her first husband were Harry, a prominent Portland restaurant man, and Carrol, prominent and very successful in musical circles for many years. Mrs. Sears has two sisters, one residing in Keokuk, la., whose husband. Charles, died a few years ago, after a wonderful career ns an engineer. The other, we think, is now residing in Seattle, whom we remember with pleasure on account of early day associations. - Those who worked with Ed. Sears for years tell of his sterling character and fine fellowship. GETS COUGAR BOUNTY H. C.

KOAC Radio Program BEHIND THE SCENES IN WASHINGTON BY RODNEY DUTCHER it; we worked from six in the morning until midnight." "It's interesting at night," Honey looked boldly and meaningly into Linda's face now and spaced her words slowly. "I understand it's thrilling when you're alone." a a There was no mistaking her now. Somehow, this girl who hated Linda because Linda had kept Pete Gardiner from her long ago, then taken Thorne from her, knew that she and Thorne had spent the night there. Linda had to know how. Linda had to find Thorne. She telephoned his home, the studio. his clubs. At last she learned he was at Santa Monica, and could not be reached. Linda knew that sho must discover if he were responsible ,and make him stop the rumors. TPcrhaps Honey was the onlv one who knew, and if Honey did talk what weight would her stories carry? Her listeners would be wise enough to know that the gossip was malicious and remember that Linda had been a rival of the beloved star on more than one occasion. But if she thought Honey was the only one to talk about her, Linda was mistaken. The girls in Hollywood were no different from the gfls in Newtown, Keokuk, Des Moines or any other place where one popular girl, lacking a' free and easy manner, is often mistaken for a snob. Since Linda gave little thought to people who did not interest her, it had not occurred to to her that (hey might nave ueen tninKing of her.
