The wives of several thousand men with prcsidenUitl aspirations doubtless have filed the lesson away for future reference, but ' what the country needs most today is a good 5-ccnt lesson on how to shako hands with just, one person. The proper method when greeting a few thousand, according to Mrs. Roosevelt, is to grasp their hands by the ends of the lingers and draw them gently off to one aide. It discourages a pause for conversation and keeps the line moving. And never, she says let them get the jump on you in the finger-grabbing business. But she fails lo instruct in just liow to do this. It's one of those every-day problems, too. Just as valuable would be instruction in: How to discourage a pause tor conversation when there is no line to keep moving. How lo act like a big Uiy when the fatherly grip-by-lho-arm is employed. How to recognize (ho approach of H manual rock-cruslicr. liow to stay casual while a rhythm-pumper goes through with his non-stop endurance contest. And how to keep a handshake with a beautiful girl 100 pel- cent brotherly when circumstances make it advisable. Undershirt Something has just bdjKij) n the news that suddenly strikes a spark of wild hope in the breast that Japan may shortly call it quits. ' Wrangling in high places lias arisen over the mixture of a nuantily of sila- ple fiber with the cotton used in babies' undergarments. Kiyoshi' Seshituo, one of Japan's biggest bankers, calls the adulteration of the cotton material "inhuman." Chokyuro Kadono, equally prominent business leader and economist, retorts sharply that it makes not the slightest difference, "so far as comfort and health . are concerned." Feeling runs high over the matter, and it may run higher. The traditional Japanese attitude of adoration toward small children is well known. Isn't there at least some possibility that the undershirt squabble may in time split the country wide open? And history teaches Ilia I. flic (SATURDAY, APRIL 30, OUT OUR WAY clever way lo check an aggressor is to give it problems at home Unit demand its exclusive attention. Anyway, it's nil .attractive thought: a nation 'dropping its warfare to defend its babies from skin irritations. Awl don't think the protection of the infant epidermis Isn't u vital matter. Any child psychologist will tell you that irritations in thu nursery may may color a person's emotional outlook for life. The chances are that the military leaders of Japan today arc men who, in (heir childhood, were forced to ctm- 1 tend with coarse undershirts.

Mr. Ford's Visit The afternoon nun shone warm on Washington. But as Henry Ford cmcrued Irom Ihc White House, lejjorls Ihe United Press, nil he would say lo the 100 waiting new.sjniricr men was something that sounded like: "Rrrrrr." Mr. Ford, we take It, was not comnienttiii; on the wcnthr)'. We Irnsl he wnsu'l referring lo the teiiiocraluic at President Roosevelt's luncheon (able. At any rote, we're glad llial what lie saiil didn't sound like: "Crrrrr! •!" For the visit of Ihe motors king lo Ihe PrcsldcnUhcir first meeting in 20 years—had been nuicli publicized and eagerly awnttccl. We're not certain just what was expected lo result from it. But since, so lar as any sl'ile- inent from tlie While House or from Mr. Fold IUIK revealed, nothing of great moment did result, we should be glad lo know nt least that the party was pleasant nml llmt a good ;lm<: was had by all. i And tlial. nnpnrcnlly, wns Ihe case. The President's biollicr-in-Ijuv, Hnll Roosevelt, who was among lliose present and who has bleu credited with having arranged Ihe luncheon meeting, is (|iiole'd as saying: "Very lllllc ecoomics -was (llscusscii. As u matter of fact, the President, nml Mr. Ford talked mainly about Ininily affairs," The nilalrr, of the Roosevelt fnmily seem lo lie thriving. So do Ihosc of the Ford family. There nre many millions of American families whose aflnlrs nrc not so linppy.

Thch- disagreements have been over methods. It wns. of course, loo much to hojic Hm3 all their differences could lie reconciled during two hours of lalk. It was absurd to believe Hint Mr. Ford might corno out with an announcement Hint he and Mr. Roosevelt had agreed oil some miraculous scheme lo put people hack to work, .start industry full sliced aliend, cud the depression and cany Ihc cciimlry into permanent prosperity. It won't be done lhat way. .Meetings like the one nl the White House yesterday will help. Premises from the President to tlo his share toward eclting government, industry mid labor to work together will help. Pledges from business men to cooperate with Ihe ntlniiiiuitrnlimi will help. All these foster belter feeling nud belter midcrshinding, which arc greatly needed. Hut it's not conferences or pledges or promises, but actions, that'wilt do the job.

However, before she could ring or lite stewardess there \vi\s a (nock at the door, and her heart umpcd expectantly, lioping ifainsl hope . . . 11 was her steward, with a note. 'From the captain, miss." "Oil." Her voice was lifeless. She closed the door before she •ear) tlic message. "Miss Milner: Jo not ttiink it wise for you to 'ry lo leave the ship today." The words danced before her eyes in shattering bewilderment. She sank down on the berth, and read it over a' second lime. Her lands were trembling so thai the Japer shook. The note could mean but one tiling. She was unofficial- y Tinder arrest! Slic turned over, buried her :icad in the pillow and cried. Once started, the whole, miserable hcart- ichc welled up in her throat, chok- iit llcr, and she could not stop. She cried, first of all, for Use in- usticc of it, that ot all the people on thu ship she should be accused if Inking (lie woman's jewels, flashy, pretentious adornments that ;ne wouldn't be seen wearing to a three-ring circus in Fall River. She cried for the humiliation of. it, thai she should be made to appear a common thicE before these people. But most of all she cried for Dick, because he had turned his back on her, because Ihc affection he declared had been so shallow, so short-lived. So it was that Dr. Gray found her, a long while afterward. "You don't, mean to tell me you've been down here, crying your eves out, all this lonely day?" She blew her nose dolefully. "I'm not allowed lo go out. I'm —I'm a prisoner!" Her tears flowed anew, "Die devil you arc! What gave you that silly idea?" She reached over to the table, picked up Die captain's note and handed it to him. lie read,' it frowning ominously. "Ilnipli! But it doesn't say anything about being a prisoner. That's nonsense." He slipped the note inlo his pockcl, palled her shoulder with a kindly gesture. "Now you dry your eyes, like a good girl, and wait iinlil I come hack. I'll look inlo lliis." Five mimilos lalcr lie was back with Captain Boyer. She was more composed now; she had bathed her eyes will) cold water and powdered her face carefully. Only the swollen putTs under her eyes remained, testifying to her misery. * s $ 'I 1 !IK captain came into the room A quickly, extending his hand to her. "Miss Milner, I'm sorry!" lie said in hearty apology. "You got me all wrong, nut it's my fault. I was in such a rush when 1 wrote that note—" She looked up at him, wondering. "Didn't yon tell me not to leave Ihc .ship'.'" He shook his head. "I didn't mean it lo sound as hard as that. Matter ol fact, 1 meant exactly what the note says: 1 didn't think it (vise for you to go ashore." "Oh." Still she didn't under- sland what the difference was. "He means for your own good, my dear," the doctor explained kindly. "Exactly. You know liow Ibis gossip gets around, Miss Milner. ! don't know anything ;ibout this O'llara woman, bul she's vicious. There's no doubt- of that. The whole affair is very peculiar. No w o m a n with any intelligence would think of leaving a small fortune in jewels in her cabin, for anyone to nick up." He was much more friendly than he had been last night, when he questioned her in his quarters. "She seems determined to implicate you in the matter," he went on, "I don't know why. But I didn't want her to have (ho chance, when we gel to New York, lo try and persuade the police that yon look the things and disposed of them in Miami. See what I mean?" She nodded quickly, and she breathed more freely thari she had all day. "Incidentally, (he pair of Ihcm had (heir deck chairs drawn up alongside the gangplank.

But she couldn't' explain to him.

And she wouldn't have Mrs. Por- > ter and Isobel smiling haughtily," pafronizing her in graciously noble' manner. "Come on, now.

He had 1 taken the first plane to New York,' without saying goodby, without leaving any word behind. And.' Isobel had gone with him. She laughed, a nervous, tone-' less response. "Then of course I can't leave you ealing alone, Dr. Gray," she said with a hard, forced brightness. "I'll meet you in the smoking room, but tonight I'm sure I need something much stronger lhan wine!"
