Black iMoimtain College is situated near Aslieville, N. C. It is a small institution, with a student body of f>0 or (hereabouts, and il wants lo stay snui 1 .!. It could use a little more money, Dr. Surettc admits—perhaps as much a.s §j'0,000—but il't want any more than thai.

It -is a sloughing off of all this paraphernalia which chillers up most education, and. a getting down (o human beings. Most people's mimls, an; ilori- hV.etl by the- formality of education."

That i.s an over-siinplifi- calion, of course; sumethiiiK is needed in the way of laboratories, i-ef-jr- ente \vorks, libraries, and .so on. Hut, (he fundamental idea is worth hanging onto. We have managed to confuse bigness with goodness In almost every walk of American life. Our commonest delusion is thai no human institution can really work right unless it has plenty of money and knows how to get more. And nowhere does Ibis delusion d<> much more harm than in the field of higher education. So we lend to appoint "good n?yiicy- raisers" or "able administrators" to our college and university presidencies, and let the thirst for pure learning lake care of itself. H is a good thing to realize that (here i:= another standard for judging such filings—a standard by which neither money nor si/.e is so very important. of Publication In this column of editorials from other newspapers docs not ncccsuarlly mean endorsement but Ls ail acknowledgment of Interest hi llic subjects mscusseu. Who Gels the Benefits of Tax-Kxempt Bonds? The annual roporl of a certain life insurance company for 1037 shows total assets of a little move I linn $66B,UJO,COG. of which not quite $175.600,000, or about 26 per tent, ni'c invested lu "lax-exempt" securities—government, .slate, count}' and municipal );omls. The real owners of Ihese bonds arc llic holders of the 555.001) life insurance policies which tliis company luis in force. Senator Byul ol Virginia, aulhw of a rcso- lulion for a proposed consllUUtorial amendment lo permit reciprocal federal and .stale taxation of the income from each other's future uoml iwuca, urges this action on the ground, nmoiii; otticrs. that lax-exempt .securities '"are a profitable rcrugc for Hie rich and very rich."

But to whom is that $2,000,030.000 of unlaMd or only partially laxcd income going? Who are the owners of these tax-exempt securities?

But (here it was. "llow did it get there, Miss Milncr 1 .''' Hie c-antain pci-sislccl. She shook her iieacl de.spairiijgly. In a pitifully small voice, she replied: "I don't know, captain. 1 don't know how il got there." "After .you came up lo dance Ibis evening, did you return to your cabin at all?" "No." "Von do remember passing Mrs. O'ilara in Ihe hall?" "Yes. 1 passed her, as f explained, on my way lu Ihc Indies' loom." "What cabin was she coming out an" .Slu 1 Iriccl lu recall. Then wondering why she had not noticed it at the time, she observed (Illicitly: "Why, she was toming out of llic Name cabin as mine, cxccpl Unit it was on 'A' duck. 1 The captain nodded. "That is her cabin. A-M. And yours is C-2M." * * * T-jE regarded her curiously from under half-closed licit;, his shrewd eyes probing inlo her very soul. And. as he confined to siare, she realized, with a terrible implication, what he was thinking. Her cabin was directly under the O'l lavas'. l\vo Ilights below. It would have been an easy matter lo pick up the; case and run down to her own room. The slairs were at that very spot. She could have accomplished the Iriji In less than a minute! "iUiss Milncr. let me ask you something else." The eaptahi's voice losl ;i bil of Us severity; it took-on a confidential warmth. 'Did you know the D'Haras before you came on this trip?" "No, C'aplain Boyer." She was IHlle taken back by Ilio ques- lion. "I never saw them before in my life." "Von know what I'm thinking .bout, of raur:;c," he wenl on to ixplain. "Thai night of our first dance out on deck, Mrs. O'llara seemed to resent her husband's dancing with you." "!f you will recall, captain," slic pointed out, "the dance was a Paul Jones—a free-for-all exchange of partners, i did not seek Mi: O'lluru otil. Mis wife's re- scnlmenl was uncalled lor." "I sec." His lace was grim, uncommunicative. "Very -well, Miss lUilner. You may go." She walked b;ick lo licr room slowly, her head strumming with (lie chaotic unccrlainty of her own Ihoughl.s. How did the clip gel inlo her room? jy|EAWVHlLK, mi deck, dcspilc Or. f,'ray's well-me-ant advice, Dick broke away al llic llrsl op- portunily and hurried down lo Joyce's cabin. Ho hastened down (he -stairway, past "B" deck, to "C" dock, Ji'i.s clumsy Pilgrim square-toed tics making a tremendous clatter. He marie his ivay to C-214. The door was ajar on llic catch, and a.s Jie knocked, lie looked in, hopefully. But Joyce did not answer. Twice he knocked on Ihe cloor, theji gelling no reply, he pushed aside the curtain and poked hi.s head inlo Ihc room. The cabin was empty. There was no sign that slie had been down here. Where else had 'lie gone? Back lo (ho upper deck he went; twice he walked around it, looking in through the windows lo sec if slic might have joined some group within the lounge or the salon. But he looked in vain. Then, just as ho was about lo make another trip down to her cabin, lo wail for her ihis time, until she did return, he slopped abruptly. Through the open window (he sound of Mrs. O'Hara's .strident voice came to his cars. He turned and retraced his steps. as casually as he could, and looked into (he lounge. She was sitting on a seltee, a lighl coal Ibrowii over her flowery Pinery, her hair lied up in a more prepossessing arrangement, and she was discussing Ihe robbery dramatically with ;' group of wide-eyed/women sit- linB'in a close circle about her. "f just raw her coining down from Ihr laplain's qi!ar(en? ! ""shr- was; saying with .smug''satisfac- tion. "And if ever i saw a guilty expression, it was on thai girl's Jute." An eager young woman, hci' eyes brightened by this Ihrill of scandal in (heir midsl, edged her chair closer. "Do you really bo- ieve she did H?" she asked breathlessly. "I'm positive," Mrs. O'llara declared, with an emphatic nod. "Oh, I don't know," a mousy ittle woman in a blue-ruffled j'olciilocks dress spoke up. "Shc':i .1 nice sort of girl. The Ural day out, my husband said to me, 'Mow ,ake thai Miss Milncr; she's what f call a wcll-hrct! young won™ • • - : " She looked up urtfuiy.

In her subtle fashion, she baited Mrs. O'llara to tell them something more definite. "And with the stewards, in ar/l out of your room all the time. You really can prove anything!" At lasi Mrs. O'Hara jumped to the challenge. "Oh, can't I'.' Well, don't be loo sure!" Quickly ; .'.\ey pressed her for details. "You mean — somebodj actually saw her di it?" f Reluctantly, al length, Mrs. O'llara explained. She leaned forward confidentially, and lowered her voice lo a hoarse whisper, so low thai Dick had lo press close fo the window in order not lo miss one word of. what she was "The captain asked me not to Kay anylhing about il yet, not until everything has been located. Bui—one- of my*clips was found in her closet!" "It was?" Her listeners gasped in quick amazement, entranced by the delicious Ihrill of i(. "Ye.s\ It was caught in one of her dresses. .She must ha v i» dropped il, in her hurry lo ci:.-,- pose of the case/' For one staggering moment Dick slood Ihere, every vcslige of color-drawn from his face.
