America Can't Ignore, , 'Rest of World Because of the great American . luibiL of bcliuvinjj llml nil Hie republic's problems can be solved within the republic's bouwltiries, there is a certain air of unreality to the cll'orts of the political platform makers. A party convention meets and its delegates devote a roomful of assorted headaches to the job of figuring out what is wrong with the country and what ought to ho done about it. lii due time they reach agreement. They decide what should be done about the currency, about the farm surplus, about industrial over-production, and aliont unemployment. Then, wrapping it all up in a ball and handing it to their chosen candidate, (hey go home well content. And all the while a current may be setting in from some far-oil' and unheard-of spot—like Serajevo, for iii- stancc—that will make all their .solutions look foolish. For we live in "a world community nowadays, iincl national problems are but one .side of the world's problems. Which is to Fay that a plank on foreign relations might well be the most important part of the entire platform. It doesn't get treated that way, of course. A parly will declare for neutrality, in case of foreign war, for adequate national defense, for noii-en- tfihglemcnl in overseas politics, and for, a revival of foreign trade. V Seldom or never will it go beyond' that, o.v oiler any concrete plan for attainment of these ends. And yet it is precisely there that Hie ' most detailed plans and the most carefully thought-out programs are necessary. For everything else in Hie platform may, unexpectedly, come to depend on what is done ill the lield of foreign relations. You may set up the most elaborate devices for restoring farm prosperity, quickening industry, ending unemployment, and balancing the budget; overnight there may come a European war to make all those plans utterly worthless. Then you will lind that your entire domestic program hangs on what you do in the foreign lield. Indeed, it does not take a foreign war to do it. The mere threat of war may iio it. A far-away financial disaster, like OUT OUli WAY the crash of the Austrian Crcdil- Anstalt in 1931, may undo everything you have tried to do. A new British Empire trade agreement, or a Japan aggressively pushing a new export plan, mny have the most profound effect on your domestic economy. It would be refreshing to see a great political party frankly admit all this, and devote its best (bought to the writing of a platform which would take a world view of America's difficulties. But because the subject is extraordinarily complex, and because Americans have a child-like faith that the Atlantic ocean is just as wide now as it was in 1800, that doesn't happen. Instead, we write tile usual, lOO-por- ccnt American platform—and trust to hick that Europe will let us carry it oul. Arkansas Mas Entertained a Great Democrat Mrs. Uoosevult's husband was here in Av- kaniiaj with her. We'll write something aljoiit him when we can get nroiiml In it. The president's wife who has Jnsl visited Arkansas, or. any president's wife, could Sic a retired nnd secluded figure. Or she could be n urnclous first lady, p erf or in Ing wllli chnrm and distinction the social and official duties Inciimbcnt on her as mistress of Ibc While House. Bui 4hls president's wife Is so v/liole- hearlcclly human, so earnestly concerned for the welfare and happiness of all men and women, that she can nut .stand remote from life. Her smile, (jvacloiu and winning us il is, only begins to express her Instinctive: and s|mn- tiineous friendliness for all who will take her as siiii|)ly and directly as she takes them. Arkansas has learned, if It did not already know, that Eleanor Roosevelt Is n grenl, democrat. Sec her at the Dycss Colony, llrai and Hungry ns she must have been alter a long, hard day's travel, postponing her waiting meal for. an hour in order to shako hands will! everybody there. There was nti pose or itJlcc- tation In llml beautiful act. She knew how the memory of a personal meeting with the wife of the president of the United stales would be treasured by those to whom she spoke a friendly word as their hands clr.sped. But more thun dial—she wanted lo greet them one and all, and tell Ilicm how Imppy she Is Hint I hoy, as individuals, are to have a ndw chance In life, and if they do their part, have comfortable homes and productive farms of their own, won by determination and diligence. ' , Mrs. Roosevelt, by bltlh and social and Him-' lly biukgroimcl, was exceptionally equipped to nttorn the White House. But she does so much more limn that, Even as John Wesley saw the world as his parish, Mrs. Roosevelt makes America her White House. —Arkansas Gazette.

"I don't believe I can rise-." "There," exclaimed Derek, lifting her in his arms and setting her down on the couch. "Stretch out for a bit and you'll feel all right." He turned again to his canvas.

"Well, everyone knows you were crazy about Gail Everett and I'm sure she- led' you on, but—" "Slop," he said. "I don't want to hear any more of that." "So you still worship her?" Lucille laughed softly, tantaliz- inuly. Then, slipping her hand in his, she said, "Derek, I want lo help yon. I've known Gail for years, and she's not worth worrying about. .Slie loves admiration, but when the lime comes when she's ready to .settle clown everyone knows, she'll marry Dick Scarlcs." •'-..' "You're sure about that—quite sure?" asked Derek. The night before lie had seen Gail and Dick together. He writhed as he remembered how her sunny head had almost touched the other man's. Derek had called Madame Lizelto's shop that morning and learned that Gail was no longer connected witU the firm. He'd called the club, loo, only to be told that thcre was no one of that name there. He did not know that a new telephone operator was on duty—one with s«.iall sense of responsibility. "Yes, Derek," Lucille went on softly. "I hale to say it, but I know it's true." PILES HAHDING'S secretary " stepped quietly into her-employer's office. "Here's a special delivery £or you," she said, handing him a letter. "From Arizona! I was just beginning to wonder if Mark Chapman had decided lo come east instead of writing." Hording took up a paper knife and slit lire envelope. Quickly his eyes raced across Ihe closely written pages. A moment later he was pressing a button, summoning his secretary. "I wish you'd call up Madame Lizctte's shop," he told her, "and get Miss Everett on the line." "Mark-Chapman says he's heard that an offer is on the way to Ihe girl," Harding explained. "It's the Travers crowd who want the place —he's given us authority to head them off, but we must gel hold of Miss Everett at once." "Oh!" exclaimed Miss West, rapidly dialing. But when she got Madame Lizetle's shop she was curtly informed thai no Miss Everett was associated with the concern. "Not there now!" Harding jumped from his chair as he heard the news. "By George, she surely hasn't accepted and gone west lo close the deal! Get Miss Cranston's letter from the file. I think I wrote Gail Everett's address on it. Seems to me she was staying at some club." PAIL was in her room. For the first time since Derek nnd she had become engaged he had failed 16 send her a letter. She could not think what had happened, and Had finally called him up. Thcre was no answer. Gail decided slie would call again in the afternoon it she did not hear from him before 5. She could not dream that, though Derek was ,'iri'his studio, he had resolutely determined not to answer the telephone because l he had a feeling that, since lie 'lia call.him. Loving Gail, he co'i not doubt her, and ycl— The telephone tinkled. Wa;! Derek, she wondered, as she lii the receiver. "A gentleman loi ! | you," announced the operator,'' It must be Derek.
