We Expefil Much, bul We, Cive Little We expect a great deal from government. • We expect it lo maintain order, to prolect our property, to imtintiiiu friendly' yet advantageous relations with oilier countries, \Ve expert it, to feed us it' we're broke, to provide work for us if we're jobless, to save our business from bankruptcy with timely loans, to promote in general better con• ditions of life. We expect all those tilings and a lot • niore. What do we give? Well, we (jivo . the taxes \vc pay consciously or mi•^ consciously, and we vote (some of us) I every year or so. At election lime, we ," may even give a few moments to reading the papers or listening to speeches " to find on I what goes on in public af- * fairs. By and large, most people contribute- no direct time or eiVort lo making democratic government work. Such contribution as we do make is usually .confined to criticism of those who are giviljg their time to make il work, whom we lump under the name of "politicians." In fact, the pitifully small allenlion given by the average person to public matters is-well shown by a recent sur- -vey made by two Harvard professors. - Their' findings arc shown in an art'i- ; cle, "Where Does Your Day Go?" in . Every' Week Magazine. They arrang- -" ed for 103 persons to record in detail .:. how they'' the, 1-140 ...irfiijiiips^;-. <1 each day, -So much for. sleep! (about' eight hours and 2-1 minutes, by the way), so much for eating, working, transportation, and so on. And (lie amount of time devoted to_ civic and political activities was found to be no-more than il takes to pronounce the four words themselves. On" )y/about one-tenth of 1 per cent of the people queried had any such activities whatsoever. In Germany, everyone puls in certain time at the service of the state. 'Spain has now instituted such n regime— 15 days a year, hot or cold. Countries of thai stripe arc insisting on a levy of public service, or service to the general interest of all. We don't want that here. The democratic way is to accept voluntary service to the republic in matters of gen-- era! interest. That's what the word republic means. It derives from res pub- licae, Latin for "the public business." Yet for this public business, (he average American has no time, not even the time to be well informed about it. His only interest usually is to squawk OUT OUR WAY about, bow il is done by those who do take an interest. Jf you doubt it, just try oj'ganlxjnjf « committee unions your friends for some public purpose, jind see lio.w many will actually lend an active hand. Yet tho very genius of democracy is tho voluntary acceptance of these duties and tasks. It is when they are not accepted t h a t a man comes ritling along on horseback and says, "Okay, boys! Now I'LL do it!" Doing Sotn atliing for You ill. The cry (hat "something nuwt be done for youth" has a modern ring. Yet Cblumluis, 0., has a program which lias been .jjoinjf on for 11 years, and which has siicx'ecdcd in cutting juvenile delinquency by 00 per cent in lhat lime. The C'ohnulms Foundation of Youth is a community-wide project/ in which both pi-ivalc anil public Agencies cooperate. It lias enrolled a high percentage of boys and girls between 9 and 17. It lias a full-time director, it' uses public swimming pools, gyms, and parks, il. has a full program of all sorts of child :iclivitics,jiml il charges nominal dues of each member just to give him an addcil interest. Five or leu cenls a month is collected,' but nobody is barred if he can'l pay il. Going on the principle that there arc no "bad" boy.s or girls, the Columbus; organi/aliiin has done a valuable job, and iho reduction in juvenile delinquency is merely a byproduct of ils work, though a highly desirable one. It is a program into whose possibilities any city might well look. • and .Already 'the horse ami buggy lias passed from reality to a memory jinujiiy tlio elderly and a mci'c phrase amonjf lliosc who arc younger,: How many people under 40 have ever really ritlilcn in a liorsc- and buggy?

CHAPTER XVIII ALMOST the entire party that day at Goldcresi, 60 or 70 persons In all, headed by Hoselee, haslened down the cactus-studded Elope (o discover Richard Bancroft walking buck toward them. "DICK!" Boselee shrieked from afar. The terrible fear that was Intensified when she had heard Quail shooting lessened a bit now. At least Dick could walk! She came running fast and without another .word she was in his arms. "What you need, little girl," he murmured, as he might have soothed a child, "is somebody to make you behavo! You mustn't chase off aflor criminals lhat way, jny lordy, Roselee girl!" "Diclc! Are you hurl?" "No. Of course not. My horse was bouncing and twisting around (lie Joshua trees. I wasn't a good target for any pistol." "But you — he — " "That was a man named Quail, Koselee. Franklin got the dope on him in town. There's $2000 reward for him and the money he hid in your bank! I knew he'd come back, but I didn't expect him in broad daylight. And you — gosh, Eoselco, you're a spunky Icid!" "Richard! . . . Dick!" She was trembling a little now, and looking up at him. And then lie dropped his arms, save for one around her shoulders, as lie walked with her, because the crowd had arrived iti a flurry of questions and excitement. Dick grinned happily at them. "The man's back there on the 1 ground," ho explained. "I had to conk him. Somebody please lake him in charge. He's an escaped convict, a murderer." Thai excited all the tourists anew, and diverted their allenlion to Quait. The rushed to him in a body. Mrs. llogan had come belatedly to meet them now, and they walked back into the ghost town with her. Their first demands were about Christine and Frank- Jin. "Mister Franklin was hit in the laiK," Mis. Hogan said. "But I .. looked hasly at it and I don't bc: licve it's inucli. He might've been Mlled, Whoever was it, honey? I declare, I never see sech excitement!" hurried (o the 'old bank and found -Franklin lying calmly on the front porch, with his head In Christine Palmer's lap. Christine looked frightened and pale, but Franklin was smiling, "Great news!" Franklin greeted (he others. "Christine kissed me!" "Sa-a-ay!" Dick began, pointing lo his friend. You—" "Yeah, we're going to be married some day. Tell them It's triie. sweetheart. I want to hear it!" Christine nodded and held oul her left hand. "Engagement ring," she barely whispered it, so grave had been her cmotipnal stress. Bul^he smiled happily. "Cost $4," Franklin resumed. "Genuine petrified wood, set in silver. Lucky I had it at the cru- sial moment when she gave herself away!" He had been holding her hand and now he squeezed it and looked up at her. "We'll get you to a hospital at once, Franklin!" Roselee cried. "I'm so happy for you and Christine. But goodness, your leg! We must—" They had « lot to do. So mucii that there wasn't much time for private talk and explanations. The tourists were milling about and everybody tried lo help or ask ciueslions. Within half an hour they had pressed Franklin's wound carefully and placed him on mattresses and quilts in a sedan—an improvised ambulance—and were riding nway to Kingman with him. Kingman was the nearest village where a doctor was available. Mrs. Ho- Ean and the elderly cowboys took charge of Golderest temporarily. Dick drove the ambulance- Eedan, and while the four young people rolled carefully along they had. opportunity for the talk they needed. Events had moved' so swiftly, complications had been so Great, that they had hardly had a chance to breathe, Roselee stated with a sigh. Dick tried to tell (hem about moving the-money into the jail dungeon and having a fight with a mining man there. "We know it," Christine put in solemnly. "We saw you, and heard the fight." * * * J)ICK was incredulous. Franklin had to be told all about that loo. Dick sairt .he moved the money because too many" people knew it was in the old mine shaft; Mis. llogan had even told the cowboys and Indians, he had learned. ,;..... ."And the ore samples sent in for assay, Roselee," Dick"'was suddenly enthusiastic. "They mean Plenty of "money for you! The reports went lo the mining corpora- tion by mistake, bul they can't lake the properly from you. You own il entirely. Reworking ihe old ore I had in mind is good for $5 a Ion, bul remember lhat new stuff'is worth around a hundred! No 'telling how much there is of it!" "That was Mrs. Hogan's discovery," Hoselee declared. "She saw Ihe new gold streak in the rock there when she helped us out of the cave-in. But (he money isn't all mine. We're all sharing this." "No," franklin said. "Goldcresi is your town. But I would like to keep my job if I can. I need It to gel married on." 'You'll get (he $2000 reward, loo," said Roselee, ^riling. "You and Christine and Die);. You certainly deferve it—goodness!" They didn't say anything more, for a long minute or so. Their young hearts were too full. Christine just sat, her slender legs folded under her, holding Franklin's hand and stroking his head lovingly. They were a little cramped in the rear of the sedan, although it was not uncomfortable because Ihe pavement gave the car smooth rolling. Roselee was in front with Dick and turned often to talk with the others. "Hurt bad, Frank?" Dick asked then, without turning. "Hot much. Not bleeding- any more either." "I am so—h-happy, about everything, I think I am—going to c-cry!" Christine said, and did cry right there with Franklin, patting her and murmuring sweet things to her. Now there is something magic about tears. And about love, too, of course. They don't have lo be your own tears, nor your own love necessarily. Oilier people's will affect you before you know it. Still, if you do have love in your own heart and if your own emotions have been straining, the magic is likely lo be infinitely more potent and consequential.. lioselee didn't want to stare then at Christine and Franklin, so she turned around. .And as matter-of-factly as lhat, Dick Bancroft put his strong right arm around her and pulled her close, and she rested her head on his shoulder. He was not driving fast. "Little girl!" he was murmuring, almost whispering. "Little girl. . .Little girl! 1 ' . For a long moment Hosclee said nothing. Then she snuggled closer lo Dick and .whispered, back to him, "Die*:, everything is so wonderful!" • ••.,:.. "Yes," he said, his cheek touching her hair.
