Radio lias Pnl Crim/> In Part}' Oratory It is impossible to look buck ivl (ho political conventions without rellecl- injj on the tremendous chnnge which the rswlio h«s wrought in American politics. And the touch part about it is that politics lias not yet adjusted itself io the change. Time was when a convention was a place for leather-lunged orators ami rapid-lire debate. A day's sessions run from dawn to dusk and the delegates Figuratively stripped to the wtiisl, had at one another with whatever weapons were hiindy* awl emerged with an honest feeling Hint they actually had come to grips with tbe pressing issues of the (lay. Rut the moment someone slipped a microphone into the convention ball, the picture changed. , First of all, the old-style orator was hopelessly crippled. What price, now, , the 'booming voice, the impassioned gestures, the hoarse crescendo, the restless pricing of the platform? On (he air they go to Sweeney. •The microphone wants a voice that is soft and well modulated, it has no use.l'or gestures, and it absolutely bars lunging and pacing-. The old-style convention orator - compares with Iho radio variety as a grftnd opera singer compares with a crooner. Nor is that all. The orator nowadays can never forget that the dclc: ; gates, in front of him are not a thousandth part of his audience. He cannot talk directly to them; he must 'pick every word and every inflection with his great invisible audience in . mind. To try to stampede his convention with a Cross of Gold speech would be worse than useless. It is Ihe audience outside the hall that he wants, and if is eternally beyond the reach of a slamnede. And that leads us lo another point. Uncensorcd debute becomes an almost impossible luxury when the radio is .'; turned on. , Suppose that some outspoken party ••man sincerely differs with the program of the party leaders and desires to take the floor to fight it; a Bill Borah at Cleveland, for instance, or a Carter Glass at Philadelphia. What happens? The entire nation hears his speech. lie immediately presents the appearance of one who is seeking to destroy party harmony; indeed, to n certain extent he actually does destroy it. Wlmt ho could have done with perfect propriety in the old, pre-microphone (lnyn, Has become an almost unthinkable breach of party loyalty. So, unless he is prepared to bolt, he keeps ijuiet. Those are more Ilian surface changes. They go to the heart of our political organization. They mean that we no longer can get the results that we used lo get out of our traditional party machinery. For a convention that cannot be swayed by the passionate arguments of a great leader, and that cannot indulge in anytbing rcst'hsbliug honest debate, is not a deliberative body in any real sense of the word. The radio bus given nur two great parties a'n exceedingly knotty problem to solve. Solve it they must, if democratic government is lo function properly. The Nylwrg Anwndmanl. The chief argument of opponents of the Nyberg proposal to amend tbe constitution of Arkansas is that its adoption would deprive the public schools of the statq and the state welfare commission of funds necessary to their effective' operation. H rilighrhavc that effect and it might not. Adoption of the Nyberg amendment would simply put it directly up to the people of Arkansas lo decide whether or not they wish to subject themselves to additional taxation for schools, welfare or any other purpose. It would take away from Ihu general assembly the power to impose new or additional taxes and reserve that power to the people, who do the paying and for whose benefit, in theory at least, taxes are levied and their proceeds spoil. If Ihe Nyberg amendment is written into tbu constitution of Arkansas the power of the people to provide for themselves such public services as .they desire and are willing lo pay for will be in no way diminished. But Ibc power of minority groups to exploit pet projects and activities at the public expense, of tax spenders to fatten public payrolls, and of unscrupulous politicians to use Ihe (axing power to reward friends or punish enemies will be very greatly diminished. For by polflical pressure, log- railing and skillful lobbying it is often possible to obtain legislative approval of tax measures which, if submitted directly to the people, would stand no chance at all. The Nyberg amendment would, operate simplv lo make certain Ihat whenever new or additional taxes are imposed it will be because the people want them, not because some high pressure group has been able to sell them to the legis- SIDE GLANCES By George Clark "My wife won't I rust me with more than enough' for lunch ami cigarettes."

XO\V GO O.V NTI'll Till-: STORY CHAPTER XI , "Dy the time Phil KirUuy saw the announcement of Ihe decline of the Howe fortune in Ihe Paris Herald, the newspaper was two days old. When he put Ihe paper down he was silent. There was one thing only to c!o. He must go to Camilla. Ho always had been near when she needed him. At ihat lie smiled grimly. She never before had needed him. But she had known he was there—something like a rock of Gibraltar or the slone that was sacred to the Pilgrim Fathers or something else immovable. -Phil with himself. He was disgusted had dreamed into black trunks Phil told himself that he was the master of his own mind. If he said that the provocative, tender lips, and wide gray eyes of a certain young lady should get out of his art gallery of faces, it should I Then he ran down to the water, and stared straight into that face. "Marcia! You here?" Marcia, glancing into his puzzled blue eyci, aware of the long, strong brown body, fashioned to weather wind and rain and sea, could only nod. So Phil had come. Had come to Camilla because he knew th&t she would need him. "I asked for you in Paris," Phil ivas saying, throwing his long body on the sand. "I left Paris when you did and came here." Funny thai she could think of so few things to say. "The water is beautiful today. Want to swim? I'll race yoii to the raft.' She was crazy to think that Phil looked disappointed—her mind was playing freak tricks. They raced to the raft where chorus of eager voices greeted them. "Hi, Kirkby, it's good to sec you again!" That was Bob. "Hello—-sort of old home week. Marcia noticed the lack of warmth in Phil's return greeting. No wonder, she mused. He wouldn'l want Bob around as a rival when he had come to plead his case with Camilla. man. She might as well see what c wanted. Or he might even ass her. Some people ran for xerciso, not lo get away from e'dple or catch up \vlth people. She stopped and wailed. The nari called, "Mareia?" "Phil!" He came up to her. There was valer and sand around Ihcm. Miles of sky above Ihcm. No ights except the beacon -on ,-a igbthouse, some where far at sea. Quite sucWenly Phil's arms had gone'around her and his lips were ircssing hers. * * * fl7HEN he dropped his arms, In the dim water-light, she saw hat his face was while :ancl Irawn. "Forgive me, Marcia. That was the lasl llring in Heaven or earlh I intended to do." '.";="Bui—why?" she asked so geht- y that Ihe words went drifting down the empty beach. "Why?" He repeated the word -ilmost fiercely. "Why? Because .•on love another man and—" 'But T don't. Phil," she inter- -uptcd softly. "I love youl lj of the girl with bright, light bail and brilliant blue eyes for, years. He had triken the first ship to France to see if she really was developing serious symptoms for an Austrian embassy attache. Now she needed him— He got on his bicycle and rode all day, not stopping for lunch. At dusk he sent a telegram to Camilla at the Conlinenlale. "Am taking train to Paris tonight. Wait for me." He had hesitated over the next word Then he had added, "Affectionately, Phil." When he reached the hotel in Paris he found two messages. One from Camilla and one from Marion. Each urged him lo join the house party at once. "I am not checking in," he (old the desk. "Whcn's the next train to Nice?" He hesitated a second before making his second request. "Is Miss Cunningham still here?" "Miss Cunningham checked out more than a week ago, Monsieur." Phil wailed long chough to pick up a bag, then caught the next train south lo Nice. He had sent a telegram, and a pony cart met him at (he train. ''The guests are all at the beach, Monsieur. You are lo join them there," the driver explained. r T 1 HE water at Nice was vcrj A black that night. It stfelched away, acres and acres and acres of it. The stars were brighl bu there was no mcon. Marcia, in a frothy blue dress, had been quie at dinner. No one had noticed she decided, because everyone elsi had so much to say. Eve] Camilla, for whom everyone wa: supposed lo be sorry, was merriei than usual. • But Marcia under stood thai. Phil had come back and Camilla must feel safe again After dinner, Marcia went up stairs and changed to a whiti sports dress and some white walk ing shoes. She grabbed a v,'oolly white coal, slipped out a side door and slnrtecl on a walk along th beach. It was too hard to slay in Ihe house where Ihe music, the laughter, the light voices, wove a spell that drew a young man with eyes that were bluer than shi had remembered and another girl closer and closer together. She had not gone far when she became aware that she was being followed. She began to walk faster, Ihen lo run. It was lonely and she had been warned to beware of vagrants. One encounter with lawlessness in Paris had been enough. Then she decided that she couldn't outrun a Even the darl^ ness did not conceal the surprp ' You— what?" M on his face. "Say it again,- Ma're.l f.f — no, don't say it! You mustn't!" But t must," she repeated steadily. "I love you. Not- Bob." She was not prepared to have Phil drop down on a rock, put his head in his hands — she was hoi prepared for the shudder that went through his body. "Marcia, Marcia darling," he said a minute later when he had grown quieter. "This is Hell! I j love you. I went bicycling 'to figure things out because I thought it was no good. And I've got a duly to perform by somebody else — don't misunderstand me. -I'm fond of Camilla. I thought I loved her. Maybe I can — " But his voice belied the hopelessness of his own belief. "What are we going lo do?" II was Marcia who aske'd the question, in a lillle while, eyes on a sailboat lhal was little: more than a blur on Ihe ocean. "Forgcl each olher, Marcia, my dearesl. What else can we -do?" He Who had been so strong "and capable could offer no solution<lhis time. The girl who had: asked (he question knew that. "Forget each olher," she 1 repealed. "Bui anyway, Phil, •'I'm glad you told me. I'm glad -you love me! It's something-^" She smiled crookedly. "Something to pack up for a rainy day." "Will you do something for , me?" he asked in a strange, tense-' ."What is if, "Go away Phil?" tomorrow. Eariy. This is going to be plenty hard as it is."
