Possibly you can even recall the days-when you did not have an electric fan." Material progress in alleviating the discomforts of weather extremes was made even before the development of air-conditioning, now coming to the fore. There's: been progress in dressing for warm weather, too. The - debutantes may not recall, but their mothers will, the warm summers in which a woman wouldn't'think "of going out of her home without coat, Cloves, hat and veil, no matter what the thermometer registered. In "rejoicing over present-day first-aids to summer comfort,; lt*l«vwen'to remember that there are still too'many Americans who live without screens and Ice and electric fans, who have no shade to sit In and uo,lawns",to lie on except in public parks. Doubtless ) they'd oe glad to cause a boom in the awning, refrigerator, screen, fan and allied industries if they had'itne'Jobs;and wages which would permit them 10 buy'these things. a i>ubtl« but powerful force to teach hi jr. !AM w- ganized society is his enemy. Look at these figures from the juvenile cWrt of a representative city such as Cleveland. There are two comparable congested areas in that city, .each inhabited by people of the same racial stock. In one area the people are fairly well off; in normal times, the average family income there ranges from '$1,500 to $2.500 a year In the other area the people are poor, with average family incomes running between $500 and $1,500 a year. The more prosperous area last year had one delinquent boy to every 910 inhabitants—29 delinquents, altogether, for the 26,000-Odd people in the area. The poorer area had one delinquent boy to every ]3 inhabitants—a total of 154 delinquents for the 28,000 residents'. Furthermore, for the city as a- whole.: families which receive help from charitable agencies, or families whose incomes are just big enough to provide the bare necessities of life, contribute more than 70 per cent of all the city's delinquents. These figures speak for themselves. Poverty means crime. Slums mean gangsters. No attack on the crime problem can lead to a permanent solution, unless it includes some program for meeting the difficulty right at the source—in the dreary streets where our "underprivileged" citizens live. UNTIE HAND* OF POLICE, CROOKS WILL FALL The law finally caught up with John Dillinger; and the:way in which it all happened is a sample of the HndjOf police work that can eventually reduce American crime to something like civilized proportions. It caught up with him, you see, because there existed one police organization—the force maintained vby the department of justice—which is empowered to act anywhere in the country, which is not under the influence of local politicians and which never gets oft the trail. The form of local self-government under which we live is an essential part of our democracy, and there doesn't seem to be any very good reason for changing it materially. But it does play right into the hands of the crook. An outlaw'is 6>t confined, any longer, to his own city or county; indeed, he is not even confined to his own'state. He can hold up an Indiana bank one day and swoop down on a filling station in Texas a week later; if Ms hideout in Wisconsin gets too hot for, ; him'he can run to another one in Pennsylvania. This puts the local police at such a tremendous disadvantage, that in many cases they are quite literally helpless. ,-. • Yet that Isn't their only handicap. The local sheriff has to be a politician, chosen usually for his vote- getting ability and not for his skill as an officer of the law. The local police chief is a political appointee, and in nine cases out of 10 he can't call his soul his own. If the gangster has any political "drag" in his home town—and. if he is a big shot, he usually has—the cop goes into action with one hand tied. Add these things together, and you find little reason to wonder why the Dillingers, the Pretty Boy Floyds, the Baby-Face Nelsons and all the rest can cut such a wide swath. But the department of justice is something else again. It is beyond the reach of local politics. It pays to attention to state or city boundary lines. And it is so organized that when it gets on a trail it can stay on !t, for months or years if need be, until it gets its quarry. That is the sort of police work that is vitally needed. A few more achievements like those which the department has recorded in the past year, and this relentless, methodical and certain method of going after crooks will begin to instill in the hearts of underworldlings the kind of fear which is the best of all crime preventives. •4 I Newspaper Comment { «•--—•-' • • •• •' • •—— Langer'* Offense Ackley World-Journal: Governor Linger of North Dakota was found guilty of taking money from government employes, to be used in support of a Bismarck newspaper. If every party official were sent to prison for taking money from government em- ployes, republican or democratic, the prisons of the United States would not be large enough to contain the offenders. NOW LET US CONSIDER THE CAUSE OF CRIME Running' down the' big-time crooks and putting riem "behind.the bars or under the sod is an important' job, and'_we seem to be doing well at it of late. An equally-important job—which, so far, we have hardly so much as thot about—is finding out how the big-time crooks get "that way.

These will show you'some rather surprising things. They; show, for one thing, that the great cause of crime-is—poverty.

Revision may mean anything from repeal to universal pensioning. Twenty Years After TOWARD RIGHT 8y ROGER W. BABSON BABSON PARK. Mass. — A prominent preacher has recently quoted me as saying: "Capitalism ii dead!" Of course. I never said nor thot this. To believe this would be to believe that has been turned upside down. The principle of capitalism—the desire to acquire and hold real property —is Inborn in the human race. It has existed since the world began and it would be a brave soothsayer who would dare predict its, complete elimination. World War Blow to Capitalilm Capitalism as a system/has had its ups and downs Uiruout the centuries just as art, literature, democracy, and religion have bad their periods of strength and weakness. With the renaissance and reformation after the middle ages, with the discovery of the new world, ..and with the invention of stock companies, capitalism increased in power very rapidly. It reached its peak- in this: country some years ago, and has since been subject to terrific blows. One of these blows.^ resulting from the World war,.has been witnessed by the present generation. It started in Russia, spread over Europe, and crossed the seas to America. It, however, is foolish, to think of capitalism as being dead even in Russia; while in Austria, Germany, Italy, Australia, and other nations, all attempts to kill it have been checked by fascism in one form 'or another. The growth of the machine age has created tremendous problems in this country'in recent years. It is now very evident that the brute force of unrestrained capitalism must be curbed. Governments will gradually "take over more and more of private business, but this, will be a slow process and need harm no one who has his investments properly diversified. Radicalism at Flood Tide Furthermore, we must remember that the law of action and reaction applies not only in economics and physics, but also in human relations. Social trends move in cycles just as business trends move in cycles. Because the government is momentarily in the driver's seat does not mean that it will control business permanently. This country of ours is forever going crazy about, something,—war, woman's suffrage, prohibition, crossword ' puzzles, Florida, the stock market, or what nest. Only six short years ago Wall street was in the. saddle and congress was a joke. Today Wall street is a grey ghost and the country has gone Washington crazy. But Washington's popularity may now be at its zenith. There will be an end to the Washington boom just as there was an end to th Florida boom and the Wall street boom. People will come to their senses when they realize the CCC, TV A, HOLC, FERA. etc., have all turned out to be lOU's. The ten commandments and the multiplication table cannot be-ignored for long. Already there is a feeling thruout the" nation that the present socialistic experiments have gone far enough for the time being. I expect to see a conservative reaction from the brain trust's alphabet building: otherwise this country may be forced to adopt some form of'fascism. Foresees Return to Conservatism I say the above merely because it will be absolutely impossible for our country, with capital and labor fighting one another, with our curtailing of production and destruction of crops, and with our lack of experienced leaders, to compete with foreign industrialists operating efficiently under a dictatorship. With the situation set Up as it now is in the United States, only higher tariffs can prevent a. flood of European goods from'coming into our country. Eventually, however, these higher tariffs would mean the loss of almost all of our foreign trade. Therefore, I believe that the great middle class of peo- ple will ultimately demand * return to conservative government In order to compete successfully with other countries, and at the tune time have people normally employed. Of course, there are many things about conservative capitalism which are contrary 10 the teachings of Jesus. The world, however, has been slowly getting better ever since He preached the great "Sermon on the Mount." We should a!-, ways use our influence to bring about more equal, opportunities for all. Not only is this our duty to humanity, but our, own life and prosperity are safe only as others enjoy. 'Similar privileges. Ultimately.-the health and prosperity of each .is dependent upon the health andiPfosperity of all. But in redistributing wealth and opportunities', *e must not Ignore the laws of,- reward and punishment Obey • Fundamental Laws The goal of President Roosevelt and his brain trust is right; but they -must not attempt to reach that goal without getting at the root of the trouble. Congress may pass laws distributing some drug to stop pain; but the disease goes on just the same. Only great integrity, balanced budgets, sound currency, international and domestic cooperation, and increased production can eliminate unemployment. Surely there can be more goods to divide only as more goods are produced! Also, remember tiat permanent social changes are brot about not by radicals ia congress, but by scientists in laboratories, preachers in churches, and teachers in universities. Business, as registered by the Babsonchart, is now 11 per cent below a year ago, and 23 per cent below normal. •4 Library Notes SOPHIE KERR'S SUPERB LOVE STORY nfTT OP MY LIFK v/U 1 v/r JL*JL * *"**•& *-§• •KU1H NBJRJC TO DAT JOE TEKH1T *••«• «* ** V.rk «IM«-I«* t. •»»" h»mt «ow« m*4 t»rv«HUr JACKSO* Ikat •»* «••". , Jofc I* • '* »'•«* ternity can be nothing but • physical thing. I a«ver did like children particularly, and I'll hate this one." Emil Ludwig, whose popularly written biographies have pleased so many readers, calls his new book "Nine Etched from Life." It contains brief but excellent estimates of Stalin. Mussolini. Venizelos, Lloyd George, Motta, Rath- cnau, Briand, Masaryk and Nansen. "Memories of My Childhood" by ; Selma Lagsriof is a book of reminiscences which supplements "Mar- backa" rather than following it as a sequel in the usual sense of the term. It has beJn received with pleasure by the book critics, all of whom report it as delightful reading, suitable for high school people as well as adults. A more serious type of biography and one reflecting the ideals of the Victorian school is "A Backward Glance" by Edith Wharton. author of "Ethan Frome," "Age of Innocence" and so many other fine novels of ths 1890*8.' Frances Perkins, secretary of labor, writes of those whom she serves in a strikingly interesting book called "People at Work." In this brief form she strives to get at the causes of our present industrial 'unrest and to seek a cure. Her book will be read by all who care' for preserving that frc-edom of- speech and action upon which this -country of ours was founded. "Portrait of a Carpenter" is a sympathetic but new and individual portrayal of the life of Jesus, gaining new light trom its endea- j vor to study the carpenter rather than the idealized person which history has made of Jesus Christ. It is written by Winifred Kirkland whose stimulating biographies appeal particularly t, young people. "Wind Blows West" by Christine W. .Parmenter is a good pioneer story dealing with Central City in the days of the Colorado gold rush. Mary, the youthful heroine, is an appealing character and the story moves rapidly from one thrilling incident to another. "Thank you Jeeves" by P. G. Wodehouse needs no comment. The devoted amirers of the nonsensical Jeeves will find him quite as good as ever in this last volume. All of these books will be put into circulation at the Ames public library July 2S. They may be borrowed or reserved at any time. ker child "««7- XOW CO 05 WITH THE STOH* CHAPTER. XVII (.VOU'KE foolish, Jane." Amy * said after the doctor had -one. "Qf course I'm here, but a nurse could do a lot more to make you comfortable." But Jane would not listen. A cable had come from Howard and been sent on from Marburg. He and Professor Ellert bad landed safely after a smooth Bossing. They -were going to Berlin first and then start their expedition. There was a mention of unsettled conditions which might change their plans. Amy dad neglected the newspapers but QQW she looked at them for an explanation. To her amazement and dismay they were full of war rumors, with Germany truculent and menacing. Jane laughed, at her fears. "My <ear." she said, "even if they do have a war it won't bother the Americans who are over there. all thoy'H have to do is turn aroind a=rt come home. 1 don't believe they'll have a war. It's just that crazy old Kaiser waving himself around and showing oft." "I tnow, Jane, but Professor Ellert is old and feeble, it'll upset him dreadfully." She was really thinking of Howard and the trouble it would be for him to take care of the frail, exacting old man, but neither she nor Jane had the least idea of what difficulties would and did happen to Americans who were so unlucky as to be traveling in the embroiled countries at tee beginning of hostilities. Amy merely imagined that Howard and Professor Ellert might have to come back without accomplishing their pilgrimage, and it would be a pity. That prospect did not disturb her nearly so much as Jane's unchanging resolve to give her child for adoption as soon as it should be born. >>'o matter what she said, she could not move Jane one inch. They argued about it until, both were sharp and exhausted. "You're not logical," cried Jane. "Yon don't believe a child is bel- ter off with people who' it than with someone who never will be able to stand looking at it: Why, on that score alone I'm doing tha right thing. .You want to sentimentalize over it. You don't understand that - ma- can't be only physical. And anyway. you're tbirJcins. Jane- Yon thought you'd make a grand free noble gesture, and you haven't the nerve to see HMhroush. You ought to b« ashamed to say you'll bate this child. You can't hate U. It's part of your body and your soul. You might as irell ity you bale yourself." "I might say that, too." . "Well, you wouldn't mean'it. You think very well of yourself, You always have. But < you'd really bate yourself, loathe yourself, If you abandoned this child to anybody who's willing to take it. You'll never know. what ba- comes of it." ' "1 don't want to know." "Why, you wouldn't do that to * puppy or a kitten! You'd not give one of them away without being sure it Jiad a good home and wouldn't be abused or ill- treated. Oh, Jane, it would be unforglveable,'' • "It's no use. I'm going to do it. You simply don't understand." They went over it again and again. But Jane continued to search after channels of adoption which would give the protection of secrecy to the mother In spite of all Amy could say, and at last refused to answer, put her hands over her ears and kept them there whenever Amy protested. "Leave me alone, can't you? I feel so wretched already," she said. At last Amy felt it was better to say nothing more, because she saw how ill Jane was and how near her time, but she thought, "As soon as the child is born she'll feel differently. She's bound to." Letters written on shipboard and soon alter landing had come from Howard, the latter telling of Germany's preparations for war, and how he was trying to persuade Professor Ellert to go down to Italy until they knew what was going to happen. But the old man didn't want to do it. • » • * A MY had hardly put this letter down when Emma brought in the papers. "The war's begun!" she cried. "Germany invading Belgium. And England's going in:" Amy looked at the headlines and laid the paper aside. "I'm going to telephone home," she said. She looked round at Jane and saw her face drawn into a strange awed grimace. "Send for the doctor," she whispered, "and the nurse." She -dropped over on the sofa, limpi moaning. In the stress of. the next 4S hours Amy -'had not an instant even to thinir of Howard, much less' try to- send a message to him. Doctor Lacey, still lamenting that Jane was -not in a hospital, and the aurse, * starchy Scotchy Miss McNeil, who echoed the doctor's complaints, took full possession of tie apartment and By Soptot K«rr their demands and exaction* k«pt Amy and Emm* rushing, ffcd child wt» long in coming. »ot eager, Amy thought,.to enttr .» world where U *ai uawantW.

She bad never seen so young * baby before and this queer little dark-eyed wrinkled creatur* seemed to her rather a blind little mole or mouse than a human child, a little ugly fumbling animal, utterly helpless, unwelcomed, to be fiung into any possible fate -the callous cruelty of it struck Amy afresh. "But it's i m p o s s i b 1 e!" ehe thought. "Jane can't do it If she does I'll hate her forever. But she can't, no one could. This little, little baby!" Presently Doctor: Lacey came out of Jane's room. "It's an odd thing," be told Any, "but I happened to hear * day or so ago «f some people who want to adopt a girl baby with good blood, you know—I'll get in touch with them and find out what can be arranged.

"She told me to go ahead, to- 'hurry-" Amy held the child'closer, walked past the doctor and into the bedroom where Jane, is » bleak and drnggish aura, lay exhausted. Amy spoke clearly and T«ry gravely: "Are you still bound to give this child away, -Jane, and let her belong entirely: to someone else and never . claim her back?" The spark in Jane's • eyes became almost gay. "You sound Hk« the Bible," she murmured. "Yes. of course I'm going to/sive tk* child away. And such 1 luck! Doe- tor Lacey knows offaomebody." "Then—will you give ' her . to me?" "I told you Td do that the day you came. But you don't want her!" "Yes, I -want-her. Only w* must -be entirely mine, Jane..My child!
