Miabn Ualta DUTCHER- WW "Mrs. Travers! Instantly Madame was all smiles. !'Yes, yes! I will be there at once." Snatching a compact from her . desk, she quickly rouged her cheeks, accentuating the high bones that told of her Slavic anchestry. "Do you want me to get in touch with some of those people?" Miss Carolie indicated the file before her. "Prepare an ad. Maybe we find some one that way." "I'll have to send it right away if you want it in tomorrow's paper." "Teh! I want it in the trade paper. That is where you find people like I want. Get it ready. 1 will look at it later." smiles, Madame went to the salon. Mrs. Travers was worth a fortune to her. besides . Miss Carolie turned to the typewriter, a look of resignation in her pale blue eyes. Madame was impossible, and yet she had spent ten years with her bullying her, kowtowing to her, and incidentally hadling her affairs in a way that brought Madame Lizette a generous income and a growing reputation for being a very clever designer; . ' She slipped a sheet of paper into the machine. After all, it would be up to her to decide what to do. It was always like that. She wondered sometimes why she ever consulted Madame, for in the end she settled everything, the eccentric Slav insisting that Miss Carolie's calm, capable judgment was far better than her own. The door of the office opened and Clyties, one of the mannequins, announced, "Some one to see you, Miss Carolie." "Who is it? You know I never see buyers in the afternoon," she answered sharply, without turning her head. "Don't you see I'm busy?" ; "She isn't a buyer," declared Clytie, gliding. away as Gail Ev-erette stepped into the room. (To Be Continued) WATCHDOG SHAMED Toledo, U.R) The "watchdog" qualities of the house guardian belonging to Elizabeth Jones are under : question while the dog slept, someone stole his collar and registration tag. r , Again the color rose in Gail's checks. "Yes, but a very nice one. Maybe he'll bo a friend some day." "That's better. Now, a toast to our. friendship." Gail raised her glass, and as her gaze met Derek's above the rim of the glass she felt strangely thrilled. Something told her New York would never be a lonely place for her again. As they reached the door, Derek said, "I think you'll stand a chunce with Madame Lizettc. She is always making changes, but remember, while she's got a wonderful reputution among her customers, I've no idea what she's like to work for. Still, even if she is a temperamental old piece you'll get experience. It would be better than a wholesale house!" "Well, thanks for all your advice. You've been wonderful, and I'll surelv let you know how I make out." "Fine, and here's luck to you," called Derek, helping Gail on to a Fifth avenue bus. . -BY RODNEY HY RODNBY DUTCIIKU ' .MIA Servler Sl;ilT l'tirrrMiiiileiil "VVrASIIINGTON' The adminis-" nation's attempt to solve its Puerto Rican problem appears to have misfired both barrels. The Tydings independence bill has merely stirred up a revolutionary spirit which is likely to cause many New Deal headaches. An administration efTort to amend the measure may be expected. There's reason to believe that tlic terms of the bill, which Puerto Ricans say sentences them to rapid starvation if they vole for independence, were conceived' here with a certain amount of bitterness or out of plain stupidity. The tactics adopted quickly -bore lruit in kind. What started the Puerto Ricans' protest was the bill's provisions that if they voted for independence there would be a four-year transition period in which Puerto Rico wouldn't have the sovereignty she would need to organize her affairs; that loans and grants from this country under the $35,000,000 Puerto Rican Reconstruction Administration would stop at once; and that a tariff would be placed on Puerto Rican products immediately. o o 'T'HIS administration proposal . followed by some weeks the assassination of Col. E. Francis Riggs, American police chief on the island, by followers of Albizu Campos, leader of the radical nationalist independence party. Officials here had been sore because not a single public man in Puerto Rico was willing to make c formal statement as to the Riggs murder not even one of regret.

De-sides, while she liked the clean-cut look of the young man across the table from her and the way his dark rebellious hair dipped over his forehead, she realized from the determined line of his chin thut doubtless he would have his own way. . , ! "Now, while she's getting our order," said Derek, us the waitress headed toward the kitchen, "let's talk things over. I suppose the first thing you want is a job. Unless you're pretty well fixed, have some bucking or lots of pull, it's 0 heart-breaking game to start in designing, especially when you have no practical experience -or almost none," he corrected himself as he saw the protest in Gail's eyes,- 'Yes, 1 guess a jobs what i want. Of course later 111 have my own place " Guil stopped. Here I am, starting to ten you all my dreams when I hardly know you! That's O. K. We're both inter ested in the same tilings.

"I'm not so keen either on regular fashion sketches those black and whites for news - papers! It's designing gorgeous clothes for young girls that I love."

Prof. Jan Schilt of the Columbia University department of astronomy explained that a meteorite as large as a cocoanut is unusual and that the New Jersey meteor probably did not have so big a core, if any at all, or it would probably have been found. Other experts explained that the jar attending the arrival of a meteorite within the lower atmosphere is caused not from the impact of a solid mass with the earth, but rather to excitation of the air by the speeding projectile. This "shock wave," they said, causes a sound similar to thunder. Judging from comparative de scriptions the New Jersey meteor was similar to that later see in Oregon. Its goal was in an area for more thickly populated than any in Oregon. The chances for any solid particles that may have struck the earth to escape detection would be fur less than in the Roseburg district, and yet none were discovered. So it would behoove Oregonians who may have planned to spend their summer vacations looking for meteorites down around Roseburg to revise their programs, for it is not likely their efforts will reap reward. The chances are that, de spite convincing testimony that the missile landed, the entire mass of the meteor was consumed by the intense heat generated through friction between the meteor's1 solids- and the air whenever a wayward heavenly body essays to visit Earth. Only rorely do oven the biggest of meteorites ever actually reach the earth unless It be as dust. Wo wonder what there Is at the top of Ml.

JUST A SHAM BATTLE I Proudly the Democrats point to the record of Thomas Jefferson, and admiringly do they honor his ; memory on his birthday, J Tauntingly do the Republicans .; point to that record us the ant! thesis ' of sometimes modern Democracy, claiming themselves rather than the Democrats to be the exponents of Jeffersonian De- rnWacyV- ' .' ' "i The administration has been de-J nounced for; leading us away from Jefferson's "Ideal;, it has been praised for leading us toward it. And the best thing the ordinary votet- can do is to make up his mind right now that all this is one of the grandest sham, battles that ever began a political campaign. There is' not the slightest chance that the present- administration iwlil jr Jeff eraonlie -the - country; there is not the slightest chance that its opponents will do so. Nei-: thor side has' either the power or the- wish to make Jefferson's great dream come true. 'i For Jefferson dreamed of on America which,' in almost every essential, was the exact opposite of the America we have today. . ; His America would have been predominantly (agricultural; ours is 'predominantly industrial: His Would -have .had few cities and Ismail ones;' our; has many cities 'and large ones. ' He felt that democracy "would flourish; only as long as theover- whelming majority of "Americans lived on small farms, which they i owned outright-and ort yvhjch. they raised ' and: fabricated nearly, all I the food and clothing they heeded; iltd 'America has not remotely re-! BCtribled that:. concept " since the tpri-Clvil War era. S We have, instead, on enormous I working: class population' and an incalculably immensq network of finance and Industry the two things which Jefferson would have none of at any price. Mosf of our farmers either are in debt to the bankers or hold their farms as ten-'antsr-lwo more things which Jof-iferson held fatal to his vision of democracy. ' . . i! '.. - But the important point is not so much the fuel that we are in al- most every respect the direct op-Iposite of Jefferson's dream, as the fact that it would be almost im-j possible for us to get back to that , dream. , ' ' ' i.' To do so we would have to rc-Irruike our agriculture, to begin wlth, from the ground up; abolish debt, abolish tenartcy, abolish the great on-crop farms of the coin !a(id 'wheat and cotton belts, and restore antique handcrafts, such as weaving, wood-working, dyeing. and so on, to each farmhouse. ! We would have; to abolish our I great corporations, give up our mfcss-production industries, re-iduce our great cities to a fruc-"tion of their size, abolish our .m--4 iffs, and whittle our banks and exchanges down 'to pocket size. 1 And if, at this point, you begin "t( wonder just how we can ever put through any such program, the J answer is, bluntly: we can't. 4 ; We can't dp it, and it is safe to say that no responsible party leud-f cr in or but of Washington thinks . that : we can. The fight over Jef- ferson's democracy is, In other , words, a . great sham battle. We 'might as well forget about it and ' devote ourselves to the real Issues Jof the campaign. , - J ' DONT HUNT METEORS I !i ) - J They're still trying to find out t what became of the meteor that f preponderance of evidence indi-1 cates either struck the earth or cx- Jploded Into atoms somewhere in jthc vicinity of Roseburg the other Tday. .

' :-t. - Terms of the Tydings bill caused many Puerto Ricans to regard it as a shotgun threat, an effort to make them choose between a continued colonial status and starvation. . A great surge of independence feeling consequently swept over the island, it is said, and so many who had previously opposed independence swung over that it came to be predicted that even freedom as provided by the Tydings bill would win by 10 to in a plebiscite. 1 . . Matters are likely to go from bad to worse unless at least one house of Congress passes a Puerto Rican independence i bill radically amended.. Chances are that this administration will go to great lengths at least in gesture to avoid further violence on the island this year. . . QFFICIALS impatient with the Puerto Ricans, however, point out that the degeneration of the island under American rule often attributed solely to exploitation by American sugar corporations, which have skimmed $400,000,000 away from it is largely attributable to Puerto Ricans themselves. Puerto Ricans, they contergl, should have seen to the enforcement of the congressional act of 1900 which limited ownership of land to 500 acres,, instead of allowing the corporations to buy up most of the good land and thus creating a major island problem. The other big problem is the big, rising birth rate and the same officials say that s the. fault . of Puerto Ricans, who won't keep the birth rate down;"-.." It'opyi lght. me. NR.v service.

The tall, slight woman who attended to the business details of Madame Lizette's gown shop in the upper fifties, swung round on her swivel chair in the tiny, rather poorly lighted room that Madame designated as her office. "What am I to do, Mees Carolic? My wonderful designer leaves me flat! Flies to California this i morning becnuso a movie magnate i wants him to. create clothes for ; a new picture.

GETTING AROUND L by Jean Seivwright CHAPTER II A look of surprise widened Gail's amber eyes as she turned to the young man. "Why, yes," she said. "I was in Mr. Lome's office." His blue eyes were twinkling. "You got the dope all right that time, though these lovely loriic.i moke grand watchdogs for the guys higher up. Lame is out of town." Gail smiled. "You know Mr. Lame?" she questioned. "Oh, yes, he's a grand chap, but his partner well, you'd think Hold's purpose in life was lo nip gpnius In the bud. He hates Lame's generosity and his interest in artists. Thinks encouraging fellows, like me and maybe you" (he glanced toward the big brown envelope Guil was carrying) "is a waste of money. Hold will never help you, but, if you don't think I'm butting in, maybe 1 can do something. I guess if you wanted to see John S. Linnc it was about some art work. I'm Derek Hargrcitves. I'm painting some portraits for him." "Thai's ever so kind of you to offer, but I don't believe there's anything you can do," Gail answered. After all this man was a stranger, and Miss Cranston had advised her to beware of strangers, especially in a city like New York. "Well, if that's how you feel, nil light." Derek pulled his hat on at its accustomed rakish tingle. His eyes twinkled. "I thought pel-hups you were a stranger and a word from someone who knows the ropes might save you time and tears!" For a moment Gail raised her eyes to Derek's. He was so tall. Six feet two in his sox he would have told you! "Well, if you're sure it won't be too much bother. I guess you can help me." "That's the girl! 1 know n little place just mound the corner. Let's go there and talk things over. It won't bo busy yet. We're early. Later you almost have to fight for a table!" Walking along the short block. Gail told her companion about the prize she hud won and her hopes to become a designer. "Congratulations!" he cried. "Lames a mighty good judge. Even though he generally has a jury of three or four fashion authorities editors of swanky magazines he always has the final say so, and he's never picked a failure yet. So there, I guess I'm talking to a famous designer! Well, here we are." Walking down two steps they entered the basement of a brown-stone house. With a gay nod lo the waitress who was dressed as a shepherdess Derek led the way to a corner table. "Now." he said, handing Gail the menu, "what do you want'."' "Oh. I'm really not hungry," she answered. "Why, it's only a couple of hours since I had bleak-fust." "I haven't eaten yet so you might as well have something and keep me company. Besides, I think you're going to have a busy afternoon. They have delicious Cor-ed. She did nol wish to argue.
