Both Parlies Abandon Old 'U About the timo thai tl\o Ituuult anil tlio shoutiiii; (lie in Cleveland, \vo arc apt to discover a woebegone and forsaken human being perching disconsolately on llic .stops of thy convention hall. On investigation, ho will be found to he an old Model T variety of the Hugged Individualist. For one thing seems clear, as the preliminary stages of the presidential campaign are gotten out of the way: The old conception of an America in which government kept its hands completely off the machinery, and left men \vork 'out their own salvation, does not seem, to commend itself to the men who have to go out and get the votes these days. It really h;is been a good many ycyrs biiioe we gave any Hung more than lip service to this conception. We Imvc had the Interstate Commerce Act for quite a while, for instance; the protective l.iniV for cycir longer. But this year's campaign throws the fact into high relief. This is not to say that there i\rc not violent differences between the partite, and among dill'eix-nl leaders within the parties, as to the extent to which the government should inlerfcro and protect, There arc. The campaign piobably will be fought oi\ those differences. Sul the point is that practically no one in either parly; js speaking for a i dtirn' to~ that' old conception of a government which had neithcv the light nor the power to interfere in the economic lives of Us citizens. Consider, for a caso in point, the perennial farm problem. Oi;e party has one solid ion for il, the other party has another. Both of these solutions may be just a little hard to undersUnd, in, view of the average politician's weakness, for trying to do indirectly what the courts won't let him do directly ; but let that pass. The point is that both parties agree that this problem is a responsibility of government which government must meet. They offer us, not a choice between action and no action, but a choice bc^ Uvecn two kinds of action. This might be a minor point, except for the fact that we lend to pitch our arguments in the old key, We talk of "rugged individualism," for instance, and if it were possible for us to got back to the early days of the republic, wh.en the government down! peacefully beside the I'otomae. The campaign would be much mojo sensible if \v<j realized clearly that we just can't do that, and wouldn't want to if we could. The great problem of the day is Ihe problem'of the extent to which we can 'preserve "wir individualism in the face of aii unavoidable growth of governmental aX'Uvity. Until we recognize the problem for exactly what il is, we won't have much chance of solving il intelligently. As the result., perhaps, of Ihe state's new ''pure elections" law, which prohibits the issuance of poll tax receipts except to the taxpayer in person or on his written order, the number of poll taxes in Mississippi county threatens to fall below the level of any previous general election year in decades. To (inalify to participate in next August's Democratic primary and in the general election next November, citizens must pay (heir poll taxes not later than nexl Klonday, June 15. Unless there is a tremendous pick-up in payments in thp next few days the county's total voting rflrengUi this year may fujl bcjow 5,000. Poll tax payments in'some previous years have exceeded 12,000. The. situation is serious for a num : ber of reasons. In th.u place it is certainly desirable that the officers who arp to conduct our a|l~a.irs in the years ahead be the choice of the people of the county. \( is certainly also desirable that l\\c people of this county have their- full voice in the election of the next governor and of other state and district officials. The results of the county primary may not be rcprescntnlive of the real wiil of the people if only a small fraction of the citizenship cpialilies to vote. And state oll'icials may: not think it particularly important to consider. Ihe interests of this counly if they find that most of our people have no voice in political •affairs. Under the American form of government .lh.e fvaiichisc is an obligation as well as a privilege. While the poll tax requirement exists all citizens should pay it. When they fail to do so they abdicate their right to n voice in the coriducl of 'public affairs. \( is worth remembering, also, thai all poll tax money goes to the common schools. H is an important item and one thai. they cau ill afford to do without. Tito right'to vote, to function as an effective member of our American democracy, is worth a sacrifice. Many of pur people can ill ajt'ord the extra expenditure of even as little as §1, but they can oven less afford to disenfranchise themselves. We hope thousands of Mississippi countians will visit (ho sheriffs offices here and at Osceola in the few remaining days and qualify themselves as citizens. BLYTHEVILLE, (AUK.)

She'd promised to marry Derek, and the future stretched rosily ahead. She was still smiling as she co! lected her mail — the precious daily letter from Derek with its delightful illustrations. No matter how often ho might telephone or see her he sent her a letter every morning. There was one from Dick, too When Gail had seated herself a.1 the table she opened Dick's lettci first, A little wrinkle furrowed her forehead. He wanted her to meet him for dinner some evening later in the week. He was still in Maine where he'd been for more than a week on some special mission for his father. Slipping the folded sheet back into the envelope, Gail opened.Derek's note Her eyes were shining as she reat it. Such dear, delightful nonsense' How she loved him! With a light step Gail coyerec the few short blocks lo the shop Of course Madame had neve given Gail one encouraging wori or complimented her on the lovel; designs she had made for the show. Still, she had not worrict and upsel her staff as much as she usually did. That was a lot to b thankful for!' ; • ; " TJUT GaU could forget Madame's lack of apprccialion when she left the shop ^behind, especially now that Derek and she were engaged. . : : "Good morning, Miss. Everett," Toincttc said as Gail entered. "What a wonderful writeup Miss Cordell gave you! I'm sure we'll get some : new customers on the strength of that. Hut of course j'ou'vc seen it!" "No, Toincttc, I haven't. I was ut ol (9wn yesterday and. I didn't: even ppen my newspaper." "I rea.d, it too, Miss Everett," said. Frank, "It's just great!" The door of tho room stood open and along the passage came the sound «f rustling newspapers and angry feet. "Mees'E-verett, Mecs E-verett! So this is what you dp the mo- nent my back is turned!" With i plump white hand Madame beat igainst the newspaper. "I don't know'what you mean, Madame Ljzotte. Mean? J suppose you don't read the papers?" Hqr voice shrilled high. "You know what I mean alt right, an,d, out you go! I will not have you here one minute longer. Put your hat on this mp-mcnt. As, (t you do npt understand^-" Again she pointed to the paper, "What right have you lo give out my designs, to tell all this?" . She tapped the page fiercely. "Perhaps it you \vould show me what's upsetting you I could explain things to you," cald Qail,, as it dawned on her that Madame was raving about Rita CordcH's article. "So that's what you think? You go and get all this publicity at my expense. I will explain nothing. .Go!" "Very well, I'll go; but perhaps before I leave I should give you a, messagq Miss Scarles left with me." "Hah! you keep back my messages, too?" "Well, I didn't like to give it to you before, because I thought it might upset you, but when yoi called me down in the showroom the other day it was. Rosemarj Searlcs to wl\o'm I was speaking When I her later she told me she had come in to. see about getting a (rock for Miss Lang's wedding, but after the way you talkcc lo me she said she would never dream of buying anything from you and I'm, sure her friends wil back her up. qoodby.'t * * » OUTSIDE, Gail's knees felt as though they would collapse with every step.she took. Shc'c lost her job! What could Rita Cordell have written to make Madame so angry? Gail stopped at the corner drugstore and consulted a telephone book. The newspaper office was not far away. She'd go right there, and, after reading the article she would see Miss, Cordell. "So that's what riled Madame," Gail murmured to herself as she read: "This younj> designer shov/a striking ability and unusual orig- inalilyj' If unhampered by (he ideas of an older school, she will undoubtedly make her mark. We hall watch her progress \v' nnch interest." i A thrill of pleasure, banisl' every memory of Madame's i ! | <indness, and Gail went up in elevator lo see Rita Cordell, surcd that i' would not be 1< before she would find her i<| place in the Sim. But when she reached Miss c'| dell's office, she was told, "IT; Cprdell is riot seeing anyone ! day. She's sailing for Europe • night." : t * » TUST then the door ope: " "Carolyn!" called Rila Core' T.hen, noticing Gail, she said, "i come in! Madame's just been/ the line, giving me an awful l'| out," and she laughed. "I'm ever so sorry, for I tl' : | your article was splendid—< ! Madame filed me just now, j I wondered if you knew whei co.uld find something to do. ) ; of course, now that you're gc'J away, I mustn't trouble you." "I am frightfully busy. I <y wish 1 had more time to U J this out." The fashion MlT closed her eyes for a momeVcT'l pressed a slender finger agnj her lips. "I have it.
