Constitution No Ihtr to a Dictatorship One of the hallmarks of the average politician is Dull he luis sin incurable tendency io get the end before the horse. Someone in tliu Democratic camp scents to have accomplished lliis entertaining feat hy proposing, in (lie linnl Hurry of lire-convention conl'iu- i'on, that the party go on reword against dictatorship by plunking for a constitutional amendment to limit a" presitlcivl to one term of six yours. This is not a new proposal. It luw been kicked around, at odd moments, for a good many years, and in its varied lifetime it has had some distinguished sponsors. Hut that il, should he suggested as the one groat, final and fool-proof defense against the ernmcc of die-tutorship only shows thai someone has been doing his figuring backward. The idea apparently is that if u designing, ;iinbi(ioi( l -| ..and unscrupulous man linds himself limited by law to one term in the White House he will straightway abandon any idea he may have had of making his tenure permanent, bow, lo the will of the people, and step out gracefully when his liniu is ripe. But if the constitution will stop .;> would-be dictator, why put in a six- year clause? There is plenty in the constitution as it stands to head off a . ^licUV^shjrj, once you assume, 't'hat (be; dictator is going to let liiniself he bound by the constitution. The defense against dictatorship is no 1 , as simple as Hint. If it were, we could rest in the assurance of complete democracy (o the end of time by the simple expedient, of putting a couple of iron-clad paragraphs in the constitution, shoving it back on the ice and then forgetting it. Unfortunately, there is more to it. The preservation of democracy and freedom rests on a complex and intangible structure of which the constitution is only the visible outward expression. 11 rests upon the sturdy independence of the average American, upon his age-old hatred of interference and oppression, upon his insistence that he is his own boss; upon his vigilance to ,see that his riglhs are preserved* his readiness to jump up and squawk when those rights are infringed; upon the native intelligence which en- ables him to smell out Ihc soll'-seeka* and the autocrat. These are things which can't be embodied in any law. They are the things which have made our democracy work, have brought it through great crises nnd have insured us against going the way of Italy and Germany. As long us they last, no one need fear an American dictatorship. A party that really* wants to \,r:i- Iccl us from dictatorship might think about how it can preserve and foster qualifies and forget about any added safeguard in the constitution. // Good Speech -But Unimportant, Keynoter Alben Barldcy lauded the administration and took the hide oil' the Republicans last night in a first class piece of campaign oratory. It was not a thoughtful appraisal of Democratic accomplishments or a sober analysis of Republican shortcomings, but it was a vigorous and well-delivered political speecli, which is about all that can be asked for in a keynote address. After all, what the Republican spellbinders said at Cleveland and what tho Democratic spellbinders arc saying at Philadelphia is of little consequence." Of scarcely greater consequence are the party platforms. • As James A. Farley told the Democratic convention yesterday, the only real is.iiie before the voters of tltt: country in°the Ifl3(i presidential campaign is the New Deal. A considerable part of tho American electorate is virtually unshakeable in its political allegiance. It will vote tho party ticket, Republican or Democratic, regardless of who the candidates may be or what the platforms may promise. The rest of the voters, holding the balance of power, will decide this year's election on the simple basis of what they think of President Roosevelt and his record. If they like him and in general approve his record, they will return him and his parly to olfice. If they., don'.t like him .and want .".o more of-the kind of things he has been doing they will vote him out, just as/they voted Hoover out four years ago. And what is said and promised .by candidates and leaders of either parly, will have very fluence upon them. mwm I think the best way to make American businessmen realize how they lei their chins, tummies, and arches drop, Is lo stage a man's fashion show In each olllcc once a month. —Charles Atlas, physical culturlsl. » ' * * Taxation Is Uie main joy of being governed. —Lawrence Curtis, clerk ol [he judiciary committee ot the Massachusctls stntc legislature. 3 * * These slow movers arc causing other motorists to dodge In and out of traffic, thus increasing the hazard.

It was Idiotic . . . this silly reaction . . . and she was not In the habit of doing foolish things. She usually looked clearly into any situation, accepted or rejected il, with self-interest paramount. If the cost were too high, the risk loo greal, she didn'l play. At home, wrapped in a creamy negligee, slim feet in matching velvet mules, she relaxed on a chaise lounge. She was half asleep when the telephone gave a faint tinkle. . "Yes?" she asked, prepared to be nice, stern, cross to half a dozen..people—not prepared to be anything at nil to Bob. But it was Bob. She had not heard his voice on the telephone before, but she recognized it instantly. "Camilla? I'm mighty sorry lo disturb you, but I'm hunting Marcia. Is she with you, by any chance? .Or have you seen her? Or Jimmy?" Camilla laughed. "She's not with Jimmy, Boh. 'I haven't seen her since breakfast, though. As for Jimmy, he's gone off in a huff." She was afraid he would hear the tremble in her voice—she hoped she imagined it only. « "Any idea where I can reach Jimmy and his brass buttons?" "He might be at the Embassy. More likely, though, at a sidewalk cafe." 'If lie conies or calls will you nsk him to get in touch with me? It's important." "Of course, but don't count on hearing. He left without saying gootlby. He's gone." "Gone? From Paris? Good grief!" "No, gone from me. I didn't buy the title." . , "Oh!" Camilla caught Ihe relief. II was due to the fact that Jimmy was still around, of course, she told herself. Still— "I'll ring up the Embassy," Bob Was saying, i "After that, why don't yon come up ai;d have lea with me?" Ca- milla asked. "I'm alone and I'm lonesome." "Thanks, I'd like it. I'm al loose ends." WHEN he came, 10 minutes later, Camilla had replaced the negligee with gay silk crepe- prinled pajamas and bright red mules that matched the poppies in tier print. Camilla was a gracious hostess, no more. When the telephone rang and a contrite Jimmy began to apologize, she interrupted him: "Never mind, Jimmy. Let's skip it. Bob's here and he wants to talk to you." When he had hung up he turned lo Camilla and shook his head. "You're a woman, a darned intelligent one. Maybe you can throw some light on this. It's the most infernal complication." He told her about Rosita's unexpected appearance at the little park in Monimarlre, and her statement that she had been there with Bob. Camilla shook her head. An intelligent woman, she was thinking! Now, if she taught calculus or Greek literature, that might be a compliment. But for a girl who majored In the lighter, goycr arts —aloud she, said: "Maybe it's your charm, Robert. I've felt it at times—a strange warmth, you know." "Rosila isn't • important." He dismissed the dancer casually. "But you are. And so is Marcia. I wonder where she is?" "Shopping or having tea with Xriends or any one of a hundred things." Camilla's voice was a little impatient. After all, when yon are fond of a man who is fond of another girl—"Have another sandwich," she urged. He did. Two of them. While he ate them he mentioned the fact that he was returning to New York in a week or two. * * * "TM staying on for a while—going lo the lakes in northern Italy," Camilla explained, wondering why she was going to the lakes, anyway. "Why don't you come? You and Marcia and Phil? I have a villa there and we would all have fun!" She was slim and lovely, and her hair was bright, ami her eyes deep and quiet, in the lamp-lighted rcom. "Why don't yon?" A sudden splash of lain against the window inter I'uplcd her mood. "There's a storm coming! Let's watch ii." So they stood, side by side, watching the outline of the Eiffel Tower as the lightning brought it into silvered relief—Jelling the Ihumlcr sweep by—.feeling the import of the rain as il came, faster and faster, against the pro tccting glass. Wh.en Bob put his arms around her nnd kissed her, Camilla was almost sorry. ; It was part of an acMo him, of course—an act that he hart-performed with many girls —an act whic)i had nothing to do with that singular devotion he must bear for Marcia whom he wished lo marry. "Oh, don't!" the said,'and withdrew, gently but firmly. -"I'm sorry it happened, Bob." Al dinner that evening, which Camilla shared with Bob and Phil in the dining room, she was strangely quiet, unusually gay, in turn. Marcia had not appeared. Continued ringing of the telephone tad brought no answer, and tho maid reported she had not come in; "After all, she doesn't have to report to anyone," Bob commented lo Ihe others, when someone had made a remark, for the dozenth' lime, that il was slrange Mareia aad left no message. "She should have left her destination at the office. It's a little frightening, taxlcabs and slippery streets," Phil volunteered. "Anyway, heiresses shouldn't run around alone after dark." O plans had been made for the evening. There was all I'j in which to play. There waV. new show opening at Ihe Folk- Bergcrc. Josephine Baker was singing that night, and Misliri- guettc was dancing. No one in the group had seen the puppets at the Grand Guignol. One after another, suggeslions were made and refused. "How about wandering oul lo the Dome?" Bob asked at last. 'We might precede it with a movie." "Not tonighl," Camilla 'answered. "I think I would like to ride through Paris in the rain." "Serious?" Phil asked, a pleased expression on his face. "I had the sanie Idea. What about it, Bob?" Bob shook his head. "Paris, in Ihe rain, is enchantment for!two, not three. You run along and I'll see a movie and turn in early. Leaving? We can go oul together." ' '•.''.' Paris, In the rain, is enchanting for two—Camilla held her head higher as she passed Bob on'her. way to the dining room exit. Al Ihe desk they paused. "Will you leave word for us if Miss Cunningham returns before we do?" Bob was asking Ihe elderly desk clerk. ! . "Certainly, monsieur." "Do you recall seeing her go oul?" Phil added. : .'.;.'';• . "There was a—a lady-wailing lor her when she came in ami they went away together," the clerk answered. ' : > i "An old lady?;' Bob ventured.' "No, a yourig lady. A dancer or some such person, I should, say, monsieur." . . 'Eosita!" Camilla said suddenly, (To Be Continued) ' .ain that licnlfn linzards are under suitable control. A good camp provides for prop- Jr disposal of sewage, elimination )f dust and crowding, and preven- ,ion of fire hazards. In areas where •here are ninny insects, particularly mosquitoes, goad camps will be provided with mosquito netting and other methods of controlling insect life. Particularly important in the summer camp is foe water and food supply. * • * There is a great tendency In summer canvjn; for children to over- exercise and, overwork, to obtain high ratings in camp activities Parents should be certain .that fatigue is tinder control, and that the children are given enough rest to enable them to recuperate both from physical and mental excesses. Hundreds of'camps now available do not, have even an infirmary for children who become ill.
