Uncle Sam Is John Smilh H is llio business of Hurry U Hopkins, WPA aclniinislratM', to pirns money out rather than lake it in. He does receive some money once in a while, however, and it is clouhlfnl lhal lie ever got a more significant chock than the one he received recently from .Fred ilohnor. Fi-eil liolmer is ;m unemployed mechanic 1 living in Newark, N. .). in JK>5 li<> got some help from the \Vi'A, Since then lie has not needed any help; but he nora- could forget thai lie liiid had help whun ho needed it, and the other day he ,sct out to square the account. He had 5112 at tho time—and no job. But he went down to a rtoslolttco and bought a money order for £100, and then mailed H to Hopkins. "My money was gutlitiir so low lhal if I hadn't paid it when 1 did 1 might . have had ho money to pay," he explained, "the government did its best to me, and I wanted to do my best lo the government." The obvious comment on all of Hi is, of course, ia that it is a pity that more people don't have the same himl of conscience that Fred Ho liner lias. Millions upon millions of people have been helped by the govei-nment In the last five or six years; only h i'ew have remembered to pay the jjovcnimcnl; after they got on their own jcct ;ij;;|in. That doesn't mean Ural ) ,arp...ungrateful It simplv nical'fs that •: : -*i±i>.'iij?f v .. .• L»:-' very few of us ever rcahxc what /this goveniment, of ours really is. It isn't a thing which exists of itself, an independent entity which floats cloudily in the sky over Washington and showers down blessings every so often. U is ourselves—John Smith and his fellow citizens. So w hen "the .government" d u c s something: for a man—provides a job for him, pays Iris rent, bails out his business, or whatever—what is actually happening is that that man's fellow citizens are .coming to his rescue. Perhaps people like Fred Hohiier rec- ogni/c that fact. If so, it is a little easier to sec why they insist on repaying what they have received. We would have a much clearer perspective on all of the activities of our government, and of our own obligations toward it, if \vc shared in that .recognition of its true essence. Tim Ideal Person At a teachers' round-table in York the other day the "ideal teachor" was constructed out of a list of (|tiali- ficalions submitted by school children. What emerged was a being who would: not be a tyrant, mil i>. friend; be a just person, and well adjusted; place the children on their 'own and give them self-confidence; think in the child's terms; explain things fully; know what she was talking about; not be bound by the book; rulo'iiol by ('car lint by rcftprct; cronies a sense of unity; and see that dilferences of opinion were brought out. These were not all (he required characteristics, but they were some of Ihem. A woman possessed of all these attributes ought jiol be conline'd to a schoolroom, but" made tho ruler of an entire people. She might not do badly as a dictator. Hut this is the catch: Iho tvadiers at the roimd-lahli! agreed lhal the "ideal teacher" was a pure iiginen!, of the imagination. And (hat's the calch to all dictatorships. tiixmsbAY, MAY 12, loss 'SIDE GLANCES By George Clark To Cliurni. or Not, Lo Charm. It's all a shade confusing about Tahiti.

So he thought il was ridiculous, lid he, to pretend io be engaged J her? He had laughed at her, censed her ot being jealous. ackic- forgot that she had calkd lie very idea of (heir engagement idiculons, loo, more Ihun once. Well, one thing was certain, Ihe noniciit this flight of his was over, r.ckic would pul an end to this '.'hole crazy business. She would lot keep ibis farce up any longer, 'veil if. she had lo lell Evelyn the •hole (rulh about everything. "Dear me," Kvelyn said, toward 10 end of Ihc long evening, "1 do hihk Roger has behaved very tratigely toward you, Jacqueline. Vhy, do you know he has 'danced n-aclically every dance with Mrs. Melrose! lie is dancing with her low—sec Ihem, darling!" "Of course 1 sec Ihem!" Jackie napped. How could sho help her- clf? She did not have to have ;cr attention called lo Ihe fact hat Roger was dancing wilh Beryl Melrose. She had been very rliich aware of it ;ill evening. She :new he was doing it on purpose, lecausc he thought it would make ter jealous. "11 docs nol look very well vhcn this K your engagement larty," her molhcr murmured. "It's really yours," Jackie said. "Mine!" Evelyn exclaimed. "Oh, see what you mean, darling— jecause of myself and Paul. You ;now, 1 believe P.iul thinks it odd, loo, Ihc way Roger is bchav- ng . . ." "I don't give a darn what Mr. Scott thinks about anything!" Jackie said. Then sho turned uvay, biting her lips hard. 130GER and Beryl Melrose came up lo Jackie after that dance. Tin afraid I'm going to have tn ay good night," Mrs. Mclroso said smilingly, extending. her hand. "It's been such a lovely party. It was so sweet ot you lo ask me."

"It was nice of you to come," she returned politely. It was just Jovcly of you lo spoil my whole evening, she might have added. But she had no intention of letting this olher girl know lhat. "Of course I'll sec you again," Rc-ryi said. "Vou'll he coming la the field lo see Roger luke off. You must be genuinely proud to ix; engaged lo him!" As she snid this last, .she turned her big dark eyes toward Roger, with a look lhal, although Jackie did nol know anything about love, could x easily read. Why, Beryl Melrose was in love wiih Roger! Really in love willi ])im. This knowledge was like an icy shower doscc.iiding upon Jackie's head. She did nol know why il should be like that. II could not malic any difference in her young life. "Of course I'm proud of him," Jackie said. Shu had nol meant lo say il. But she just did. She, loo, gave Roger a look; a shy, •••iniling one lhal seemed lo say how proud she was, more than nny words. For suddenly Juckic liad been seized with an idea of her own! Six really would put on an acl. Slic really would make people believe in (his ridiculous engagement. Even Roger himself! Then she would indeed have the laugh on him. JTE was looking at her in his puzzled masculine way. "You sounded as though you meant lhal," he said. "I haven't done anything: fo be proud of yet." "But you will!" Jackie flashed. Mow she stepped closer lo him, slipping an arm through his, looking up at him again. "You know," she said io Beryl Melrose, "Roger and I arc going io be married just as soon as he comes back from his flight." 'We arc!" Koger looked quile astonished at this news, as though it was the first he had heard of I—as indeed it was. "Wo decided on that tonight," Jackie said. "At least, I did." She Hashed Roger another shy, sweet smile. She was not Evelyn La Farge's daughter for nothing, at lei- all! "I found out—just tonight— that I must have lhal definitely understood—before Roger goes away, I mean." \<i. • ,... "I understand," Beryl' Melrose said. Her dark eyes'looked'-into Jackie's a significant moment—as though she did understand, perhaps more than had been said. She said good night once more.

When he camo back he found Jackie silling in a secluded corner, sheltered by a mass of flowers and shrubs, screened from the dance platform and the gay lights. She looked as (hough sho were waiting for him. Which was exactly how she had hoped lo look. "CUE here," lloger stood over .her, "did you mean thai-- what you said lo Beryl? Or wcrc'4 you still only pretending. . . .1 Don't protend with me now,' Jackie, please!" "I won't," Jackie answered. Sho' lowered her long curling lashes. Maybe because she did not want liim to see what here eyes really said. "No—I wasn't pretending. I ... I guess you were- right, Roger. Aboul Beryl Melrose, I: mean. I could not bear lo sec you! wilh her—all evening." That was' (h« trulli. It had made her so, angry that she had seen red. "You mean lhat!" Roger took n step closer, he caught both of her hands in his. "Don't pretend with me now, Jackie—I warn you. This is jusl between us. Not for Ihe benefit of your mother, or anyone else." "Yes, it is just helwcen us," Jackie said. This was how she would even (he score with him. For getting her into Ibis crazy idea of his, for everything. This was how—in the end—she would show him how she hated liwf!!^ "Nobody else has anything to ctol with this," Jackie said. / Certainly nobody else had any-• thing fo do wilh what happened next. With one swift motion Roger- drew her onto her feet. He caught her (o him and held her closer than he ever had held her, before. His eyes, that were as blue as the sky, looked down inlo hers a long moment. Then his lips found hers and clung to them. Jackie had not know that there' could be such a kiss as this, fierce, yet tender, delirious, yet thrilling, a kiss that lifted you out ot yourself so that reality slipped from your senses, robbing you of reason, stirring youi- veins inlo a joyous tumulii lhat was fearful, heart-filling. So that for u me,- mcht you almost believed in it yourself! Jackie s;nv now that: this jd,ea of hers-.was almost aa'idangerous as a flight info the stratosphere!:,But Jaekic was not afraid ot.^ijs'fliing.
