For Uuu reason inirlisiinship should not enter into (lie iiiicstioii of what the' govern- ment.proposes lo do for tiie relief uf (h'oulli-slricken areas. Just the winie the logician, • if lie cares to emphasize the point, .can demonstrate Hint much of what is being done to relieve drotilh cunditiuns is iincoiistitutional. • For example, the Resettlement Administration has already 'allotted moro tliun two million dollars of its i'linds for doles to the farm victims uf Iho. weather plague. aet in ilself docs not come within the scope of the, Resettlement Aet, which in turn miijiiL meet the disapiiroval of the Miipi't'iiic court if put to ;i test. Jt is in such desperate situation. 1 : as the American farmer now . 1'mds himself in'the ail'ccted area.s tlial. tlio Constitution gels tolerant construe tion. On numerous occasions in the past unconstitutional acts of vast importance have been carried out. Thomas Jeli'cr.son disregarded the fundament:*I law when he purchased Louisiana, as did Abraham Lincoln in his Kmancipafion Proclamation. The; Constitution was shelved when President Roosevelt declared the bank holiday in 1933. . v , v No one is likely to question what 'is. ; being done, or may have to be dono,' to , relieve diunth-stricken farmers. For the moment at least the Constitution is being set aside in the interest of much-needed humanitarian action and the Department of Agriculture and the Resettlement Administration arc proceeding without worrying very much about the fine points of one fmulamenlal law. • We Must Plan Far Out of the iiiigcdy.' of tho 193G chotilh comes talk-of abantloiiiiig vast stretches of the prairie slates 'iiiulur :i wholcsnlo resoUlcmenl program. More sensible, however, is the proposal thai a gigantic irrigation ami consorvaiiuii piognim be launched to make such migration unnecessary. Which is to say tluit the - current drouth, climaxing many'years'of liard- ship and anility for the farms, has home a very vital -lesson—that tlic, drouth ; problem essentially is :t long-term proposition. "Dry fanners' and agricultural cxporlw alike arc. agreed that something more than tlio spending of emergency millions for relief of human beings and livestock must,he worked 'out. Just what such a program shou'ld involve may he problematical, lint in any case it'is clear that a long-range program looking far beyond the immediate crisis is necessary. The Old Combindlioii It's a bit hard, despite the optimism of tlio diplomats, to swallow the new Auslro-Gcrniiin treaty negotiated by Chancellors Hitler and Schnschnigg, guaranteeing Austria's complete independence of Nir/.isni. Kor ono thiiig, Us three-year limit falls sadly short of the 20-year iiiin- iiggrcsston pacts HitJer has talked about. Hut more important is tin: fact that the treaty swings Ijjuroije bade to .the pre-war habit of alliance:; and combinations. Already there'is ample evidence that II Diice has effected a sort ol' triple alliance with Germany and Austria, oven though he has not signed a formal pact. Witness, for example, the retail'of both Italy and Germany to lake part in the new Locarno con-' fcrciice, seeking 'to rebuild the treaty which Dcr Fuehrer so boldly scrapped . a few weeks back. It appears that lOurope again U headed toward, the vicious doctrine of the "balance of powers." It's pretty difficult lo'look hopefully on that sort of development.

"Someone might be watching from the lodge." He laughed. "That's encouraging," he told her. "II that's your only reason for not lelting me kiss you, Ihen I'm a cinch!" Then his tone grew suddenly serious. "Look here, Helena. I haven't been able to sleep for 10 minules straight since we lefl each other lasl night. I'd heard of lhat happening lo a fellow when he met the right girl — hul I'd never really believed it. Last night I told you I was in love with you. And il still' goes in a chilly and unromantic dawn." "It's an awfully short time in which io decide llial," Helena smiled, wondering if he could de- lect the pounding of her heart beneath Ihc (bin white swim suit. "But I'm nol afraid of. the decision," Peter answered quickly. "Not even if it was a little quick . on the irigger. I've met lots of girls, Helena, but I've never had one hit me like (his. Not even near if." "Thai's nice of you. I—I'll admit I feel ihe same way, Pelcr. I3ut ..." she broke off with a whimsical, helpless fmilc. "That settles il!" he said. "If you feel just as I do, then there's only one answer." "W-whal's that?" asked Helena breathlessly. "That's Ihc good old-fashioned institution of marriage, darling." He look her wrist and turned back toward the lodge. "Come on, let's \vakc the gang and tell them!" But Helena planted her small i.feet solidly on the path. and protested. "No, Peter . . . please! Not ye(, anyway." He turned to hei- again, and she went on slowly: "We can't do a thing like that. We don't know anything about each other. Tomorrow il might all be different." "I cton't believe lhat, and neither do you," lie said meeting her level gaze. "I'm in love with you. I can care for you comfortably. There's nothing more to know nboul nv.'. You're young and beautiful—and that's .ill I want to know about you. The rest of it I can discover." "Oh, Peter!" Helena laughed wjiilc her eyes filled suspiciously. "You— you're really a sweet person. And aren't we both insane?" • t t f rHEN, beyond Peter's shoulder, •*• she saw Sandra Leigh slowly emerging from the lodge. Over her naming pajamas she had .thrown a robe, and her bobbed hair was in attractive disarray. "I though! I'd get a load of sun- nsc,' she called to them. "But it looks as if I'm a little lale." Peter turned, hiding his annoyance. at the interruption. "Good ty HMO JONES 'i 1916 NEA "T-lhcn you think it's all rig/ilP" Helena faltered. morning, Sandy. You aren't dcny- iri(5 that a sunriso is no novelty to you?" Sandra smiled. "I've seen them in evening clothes, Peter. Thai is, I was in evening clothes; not the sunrises. Bui that's different. Have you two hardy persons been in the lake already?" She turned her eyes knowingly loward Helena, and the latter thought, "f wonder it she believes I'm Inking advantage ot her invitation and trying lo capture Peter?" Aloud Helena said, "I've been in, and Mr. Henderson's just trying it. Why don't you join hj m ? It's grand." Pelcr faced ' her humorously. ''Dai-ling, if we're to be married you mustn't refer to me os Mr. Henderson. Il's Peter. And after ive'vc been married a wliilc vou can call me Pete." The Leigh girl came down from ;hc veranda, searching Peter's [ace. "You're serious, Vcler" Then she turned to Helena. "And why shouldn't he be?' Vou know last night at dinner I had a fleeting thought thai U would b c no surprise if you two hit it off i» a serious Way. I'm psychic nboul :hosc things." "T-tlicn you think it's all right?" ilclcna faltered. "All right?" repealed Sandra "What difference would it make what 1 thought? But, since you've asked me, I'll lell you 1 think it's even belter than all right. And I'm excited about being the first to congratulate' Pcler and vdsli you happiness. .1 am the first? 1 Helena's hand, doesn't it?" "Hight away, "W-why, I haven't thought—" She looked at Sandra helplessly. "Peter," said the other girl, "I want (o make a suggestion. It's lhat you very literally go and jump into (he lake. I'll help Helena make her plans." "Very well, Miss Ix^igh . . ." He bowed low, dropped his beach robe, and sped down toward the lake. At its edge he leaped an amazing distance and struck the water neatly. "And that," said Sandra smiling, "is (lie way he does everything. I'm not surprised he's going into matrimony the same way." "What have you to say for me?" asked Helena. Sandra put her ami around Helena Derrik's shoulders. "A woman's different, darling. Nobody should be surprised when a woman jumps into marriage at five minutes' notice. I think every girl carries around subconsciously the image of Ihc kind of. man she'd fall for. Of course it's an image that's changed n little, maybe, as one grows, older—or perhaps forgotten altogether. Cut—" She slopped suddenly. "You're really in love wilh him, aren't you?" "I wouldn't be marrying him if I weren't" "I Ihought so," Sandra smiled. "That slicks out all over you, Helena. Do you want me to help you with the wedding? I'd love it." "I—I don't know. The whole idea of a—n frightens inc." wedding sort of rpHE Leigh girl's cnlhu •*• warmed Helena's heart. Somehow she had feared that Sandra might nol quite approve. "When does il happen?' 1 Snndra know. Peler grinned and reached. for I Thc'gang would pilch'in and'give IC AMDRA thought "Poier seems a1 a moment. 'Peter seems all set. What | would you fay to doing it now? you a great send-off,"ami il would avoid an wedding." - Thoughls had never raced [so swiftly through Helena's brain ias they did in lhat moment. .Why should she waif, after all? Pcfer Henderson was in love ivilli.hpr, and slic with him. Why should they waste one precious moment of two lives that were ;all too short at hcsf? i "I'll explain to your mother,'? the Leigh girl said. "I might even fib a little and lell her you've known Peter longer than you have. One thing's sure—when she sees Pcler she'll agree wilh you. No woman can resist that charm." "Sandra, I'll never bc able to repay you. ..." "Repay me?" snid Sandra, amazed. "I'm a romantic woman, darling. And there's nothing si snaps up a'weck-cnd like a-wed- " ding." She faced Helena, her eyes serious. ''You mean (his, don't,you, baby? Don't let me rush you -i into something you're not; sure 1 of." . • • ^ Helena nodded. "I mean il. I never mcaiil anything more in my life, and I never will " "fm not recommending Peter Henderson, you understand.'"-I know him just as a charming, young man who sometimes appears at parties and week-ends. But if you're sure—and that means if you're in love with him —I'll go Ihc limit." "t'm in love with him," said Helena slowly. "Then," answered Sandra, "nobody can slop you, and I may os well have my fun and help you." She called down to Pelcr, "It's all arranged.
