Success AjHtii From Politics Once in :i great while a project manages lo rise nbovo the level 'of partisan n I (ticks simply he- CAUKC of ita sheei 1 success. Sucli ap- peai-s to'hc lire -story of Die CCC. , At least, inililic opinion a.s reflected in a recent rial ion-wide poll pointed lo the CCC as <m agency of universal good. Significantly, Republicans alitl Democrats alike endorsed llic work of the Civilian Conservation Corps, alul ui-ged -that it be conliimed. The criticisms of labor, the charges of "militarism" and "rcffimenlnlion" that, once .. battered this New Deal agency, now are pretty well withdrawn. In their place lias developed a generally sincere recognition of the CCC, not only for what it lias done for American youth, but for what it has done toward conservation of Amn-k-an resources. Nol.SoBad * Severe drouth coiulilions, in the' opinion of many, presage a .serious situation with respect to"'(be national grain crops, especially wheat. There is no (Icnyiiif the fact Lliat adverse wcalher conditions have «f- fecled (lie wheat yield in the Uniled States, particularly in t li e Spring wheat stales of the Northwest. But the 'situation is-not HO bail as some would lead us to believe. The yyinlcv wheat .crop.' has been little aileded. Uy this time it has been mostly harvested, with (he yield estimated at'528,000,000 bushels, or more than the yield from bulb the • Winter and Spring wheat crops in 1933 of 1!)3J. Despite the drouth the Spring \\hoat crop will .yield, according to private estimates, not less Iban J30,- 000,000 bushels, or a total wheat yield for the Uniled States of 050,000,000 bushels. This about equals our dn- mrstic requirements, to say nothing of the carry-over of about 125,000,000^ Therefore, there appears to be no justification for the dire predictions that have been emanating from calamity howlers. The country appears still able lo lake care of itself in one of its essential food requirements. People confuse individual heredity with race heredity. Individual heredity is a r.eientilic reality, but to speak of " race heredity- L, nonsense. -Prof. Frank Boas. Columbia' University. ' _IZ1 BLYTIIBV1LLE, (ARK.) COUMJBR NEWS OUT OUR WAY A Bad tidbit In All Cotunries The Ilidusll'ial and social jil-ograni of the Soviet Union are moving well ahead of schedule these days, according to one Commissar Gregory K.

MI\V i;o <>\ WITH Tin; STOHY CHAPTER X 'THE swift IwiliHhl of lhe inouii- lains \vas beginning lo fall as Claire gained the open air. Everything about her seemed normal and peaceful, and already she was beginning to feel ashamed of her frig'.it. She put down the empty lamp and walked resolutely through the aspen grove lo (he lool house. After securing a crowbar and n can of kerosene, she passed the open kitchen doov. Sire could sec Susie, moving about celling supper and talking lo Lhn Dallas who Slecle was hurt In an accident, too?" "Sure. I heard the Doc say he probably slipped and fell against something. It's easy to do on them pine needles." '"What's Miss Fosdick up here for, anyway?" "How should I know?" Susie's voice sounded sharp. Then she lusned with a coquettish smile. "Try one ot these fritters. If I do say so, as I shouldn't, I can sure make 'em." • * E waited a minule longer, but they did nol return to the subject, so she went on lo the cellar. Queer lhat Dan Dallas should be quiring Susie. She walked lo Ihc farther wall of the cellar, where she had heard the tapping sounds. Experimentally she struck the wall with (he crowbar. Almosl al once Ihere was a response, like a big pulse beating with horrible regularity back there in the darkness. Awkwardly s'i« began digging, and after several minutes had quite a sizeable hole. her hand through and toucb*4 him on lhe shoulder. Was n H corpse 01 had he Just 'dropped unconscious? She must go for help. Quickly Claire started to back out of the hole, when her attention was caught by another sound before her. * + * CHE stopped, listening and hol'd- ing the lamp ahead of her,to throw as long a light ray as possible. Something or somebody v/as certainly stirring on the other side ol the opening. Without Warning and for ( io second time since she came lo the ilouso of Long Shadows, (he lamp iii hpr hand shattered into bits. There was a sudden rumblmg, and then darkness closed about her. But nol for long. Almosl immediately from behind her an- olhcr circle of light swept Iho opening and there was a deafening report. Claire collapsed in a frightened heap. Then, finding sho was not hurt, she see Dan Dallas, flashlight in one naiid and a slill smoking revolver ,n lhe other. He leaped to her and drew her sack inlo the cellar, being careful to keep out of range of the hole. At last she was forced lo stop, and once more she pel her car igainsl the wall. Certainly Eome- iliing was stirring behind there. She must go on. t » * PLAIRK'S nervousness by this lime was beginning lo get (Ire best Of her, though she still worked on steadily. When nexl she slopped for breath, ''Hurt, Miss Fosdick?" "N-ho. I guess nol. Claire began. nut could hear she thought new sou ngnlnsl the wall. Like someone jrealhing heavily—or was it only icr own laboring lungs and xranding heart? Wearily she started in again, and the very next stroke thudded different sound.
