Age of Reason A little news dispatch has come from South America that ought to lie clipped and tiled away Tov occasional reference by people who are subject to attacks of unreasoning despair. A woihan named Martina Xannulio tried to end her life by jumping > llLo n river near Salto, in Argentina. She was 108 years old. She explained Ihat slip was "tired of living." You might think that if Sehoi'a Zsi- iiYudio was the kind of person who could turn to self-destrue'tion simply bul of bbvedoj'n she would have started for the Hvor loiig before she reached he age of 108. But perhaps she cannot foci judged ry the standards that apply to persons of lesser age. She certainly found worth while for a considerable pe: Maybe at the age of 108 you be- ome a little better qualified to judge whether life is or is not likely to hold anything more of value. At any rale, everybody certainly 'bright to wait until 108 at the veVy least before even admitting the possibility of be'coming qualified lo judge. Arid then the best thing to do is to talk it over 'with someone older who knows more about such things. Games for Alarm An illuminating nrltclc might lie wilteii about,the things in the way of . oiit-oi'-door "'fm-HiUirc' 1 wlu'eli' arc cherished by the citizens of Various hii- tioiis. Il'oii feiic'cs and similar "stii>erfltion* barricades" in Germany liavc been ordered torn down as a part of the iron production program of the four-year plan. The hews is scarcely something to cry from the hous'e tops in this country, but to the average Englishman it must conjure pictures of a people in the ultimate stage of complete ruin. A gbvethhieht might conceivably separate a Briton from his beer, oven his umbrella, without suggesting the approach of judgment day, but guniu'c would probably answer the first preparatory gesture toward tearing down the country's fences or walls. It would seem comparable to talcing the roofs off the houses. The Englishman must t'ccl much as "a Frenchman would feel if he heard OUT OUR WAY ~ that there were to i/e no inbre sidewalk benches, or chairs in the parks, or HS you would feel if you learned that all porches and yards were to be abolished. "Free as a king." Thfe phrase hasn't been used in a serious sense 'for a long lime now. How about "Free as an ex-king"? 11iat must have seemed a godd, realistic figure of speech to the Duke of Windsor at the beginning of 1937. ^Doe.s if mean anything? Well, yes aiid no. Y'es, a while ago. No, how. The Duke of Windsor, (or years royalty's No. 1 globe-trotter, is forced to .travel more and moi-c by arhichair and book. It seems a mail can't convince anybody he isn't king any more. Windsor lived in Austria for a while. But now such a thing might be interpreted as a friendly British gesture toward Nazism, lie can't go lo Italy for similar reasons, and of 'course Spain just now is oul of the rm'eslion. Also, you learn, there are "a iunnVr of countries in Central aii'd Rastorn Ku- ron'o" where live political situation just doesn't 'quite, povinit his presence. Soviet Russia might as well hot exist for him. So France must continue to b'e his European stamping 'ground, at least for a white. Excepting, of course, Paris, for a few days this summer when the king and Queen will be there. Somebody ought to write a story called "the fex-Prineo and the Pauper." Design's Oil Designs The appearance of hot. dogs, dollar sign::, Indians, and 'gas stations as wallpaper designs al a Chicago exhibition points lo a laudable trend toward making the country's wails '".jibe" better with the immediate local atmosphere. Now let's make this -an instrument for correcting the national habit of what might bo called decorative disguise. It's lime that the 'decorators realized that the public isn't actually fooled when a ban office is made to i look like ft tea room, or a "high-priced cafe like a pioneer's shack. Realism in wallpaper design will help straighten things around. For instance, don't paper the walls of a cocktail lounge with exo'tie flower patterns, but pictures of horses' necks, side cars, battling planters, and g'\n- riekeyshaws. For the walls of waiting rooms an all-over pattern of cooling heels would 'do. For checkrooms, palms; for hotel lobbies, lizards ami Hawkshaws; dentists' offices, riveting machines.

They still wore th'cir ridiculous costumes, but with the mirth gone from their fires, the spectacle was depressing.

"Ladies and gentlemen," he began, "I deeply regret Hie necessity foi- demanding your presence here, bxil a very serious loss has been reported by one of our passengers. Upon returning to her stalerooirj a few niiiiules ago, Mrs. O'Hara discovered that all ol her jewels, which she estimates at "some Ihirly thousand dollars, hud disappeared." There were gasps of astonishment, then a moment of incredulous silence. Thirty thousand dollars! Captain Boyer paused, to let the Importance of this fact sink in. "By gelling together immediately," the captain svcnl 'on, hope that we may hear something of interest while the 'cVen'ts of Ih'e evening arc slill fresh in oin niin'ds." He spoke slowly, hesitating a bi't after every few words, as if he were playing for time, Presently, ;<s Joyce glanced through the doorway, She understood why. Down the long corridor on "A" deck sh'c could sec the stewards slipping quietly aiid cautiously from one stateroom to another. Now, while all the pas- ieiigei-; were gathered in lov.nKe, their rooms were being "Mi s O'Hara, will you pleas'i 1*11 vis exactly when you last sav your jewelry, and when you dis covered the loss?" * t * S HE stood up find spoke will vigorous anger.

"Not then," she said. But only a few rhinules before, saw a young \vori\aii hurrying o the ladies' lounge, very sus- jcibusly, and she was hiding omcthing in the folds of her cos- ume." Joyce felt her heart contract. Mrs. O'Hara's black eyes were arling among Ihe passengers, eckiiig her out. "Thei'c she is b\v!" she announced, pointing to py'cb. "Thai person over there, iressed like a Salem witch!" Dick was on his 'feet in Hit in- ta'nt. "1 heg your pardon, Cap- ain Boyer/' he shouted in quick c'sehtmcnt. "This is going too ar ..." : 'Of course. Kir. Hamilton." The Captain's voice was weary. "Mrs. O'Hara is making no JH'cusylions. the young lady will explain—" alligator case. He laid it on \hc table in front of Captain Boyer. Slowly Hie captain turned the bag over, 'examined the catch. He saw that il had been deliberately broken; (he bag fell open immediately, lacing out toward the audience, and il was completely empty! "Is ihis your jewel case, Mrs. O'Hara?" Sh'c nodded her head decisively, ft certainly is," "Where did you find it, steward?" "In the ladies' lounge on 'A' •ck, sir. flighl down the hall."/i J, Mrs. O'Hara spun around and, jj stared at Joyce. So you v/creh't' ~ ^ concealing anything, her look said, so plainly that every person in the room understood. You weren't concealing anything under your costume, were you? But my empty case was found in the Indies' room, just after you were in there! Joyce made a move to rise, but before she could get lo her feet, Dick iiad hold of her. Now, one by one, the stewards were returning to Ihe lounge, reporting discreetly lo ttie purser, who immediately checked against the passenger list as they spoke to him. When Ihe iasl one had come, he handed Ihe lisl across the table. Caplain Boyer looked il over carefully before tic turned lo his anxious observers, "That is -all, ladies and gentlemen," he said quietly. "I thank you for your patience and courtesy." JOYCE J flami stood up, her cheeks ming, and so unnerved that " she, thought her legs would "not sustain her weight. But she held leV chin up, and her voice ear- 'ied bravely and clearly across the io'uhgc, as she tried to explain, iler costume had come aparl; she was hurrying to fix il. She was Holding il together, not concealing anything in il. As she sat down she felt every eye in the room "upon her. She had the unhapuy thought tha't not a soul believed her. Not one, except Dick. "She's lying!" Mrs. O'Hara shrieked. •' : : Dick jumped up ftga'in, I hands clenched convulsively. Bui before he Could speak one of flic stewards had entered Ihe room. In his hand he carried a brown r rilE orchestra filed back into their places, and Joyce went on deck with Dick. For a mo- nc'iit he held her hands, whispered encouragement. But a lump in her throat choked her so that she- could no', speak; her lip trembled, and the tears started quickly. For an instant she fought against it, then abruptly she pulled her hands away and ran off to seek the solitude of her cabin. Dick would have followed hut the doctor stepped up. "Her nerves are on 'edge," he explained, "and ho wonder. Lei her have a good cry, soil. She'll feel belter for it." In the corridor outside her cabin, she found her steward waiting for her. "If you please, miss," he saiii (;uielly. "The captain would like lu see you iriimedialely. Will you coniir wilh nic?"^ ' She followed him dxunblv, b'rr heart pounding with a vague and unreasoning dread.

KOIIIC studies have Iicen riia'de bn the effects of Inck of vitamin A lii the diet-, which mdlcatc thai the deficiency tuAy be wider than has been suspected in Ihe pasl. Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin. We gel most ol if in our diet from animal sources, like liver, milk, butter, ilsh. and the carotpiie Ihol Is found in yellow or green pismented fruits and vegetables.
