After all, the OGPU of Russia and the Gestapo of Germany are nothing in 'the world but organizations of ' G-men which have been made superior • to all criticism, inquiry, or restraint. The dictators of those countries can use their oullits to strike down political pfe u opponents, because no one in either country has the right to ask what the organizations are doing, or under what 'legal'enactment they are operating. If the next session of Congress should desire to make il full public inquiry into Ihe 'entire record of the G-men, the Secret Service, the posial inspectors, or any other group of federal employes, it woiild be entirely within its rights. No such investigation seems especially advisable, as it 'happens; the thing to remember is that the right to make it exists. —Hnico Cation. MONDAY, JULY 27, 1:1 Homes Bought to Live In There's something distinctly ro- freshiiig in the fact that halt' of America's home owners buy their first houses plots "just to have a better place to bring up the children." A recent nation-wide survey reveals this happy slate of all'atrs. Moreover, it discloses that next to this praiseworthy desire, Hie greatest motive for home owning is really a •sentimental longing for "a place of our own—a home." Investment i-.ins a pretty poor third. About lil per cent of American fam-. ilics build homes, the survey reveals further, and there are children in Gt per cent of these homes at the lime of purchase. All of which implies rather-.distinctly that the man who buys a home is thinkiifg a lot more of the intangible values it represents than of the dollars- aml-conts side of the deal. Benefactors of Life .Because two Harvard scientists have devoted the last live years to patient, unremitting research, the world now linds itself a step nearer escape from the scourge of influenza. The scientists, YV. F. Wells and II. \V. Brown, have discovered that influenza virus, transmitted by the air wo breathe, can be killed by contact with ultra-violet rays. Their achievement opens a. vast \\h\v lield in "preventive medicine, whereby the air in hospitals, theatres, schools, and auditoriums may bo freed from dangerous germs. Here is definitely one more contribution to the welfare of civilization. But while il repiesents much in itself, it is only one of the many ways by which science is making this a bct- 'ter world in winch to live. Would that as much could be said for other human endeavors!

'When a mother looks at her child and tries lo cvalimtc its qualities, she should remember that both she nnd her husband give to the child most ot what, It has in the way of qualities, and that each of the parents also is responsible for making ihc most of Ihose thai the child actually has. Thus. • heredity, environment, including education, nnd iwrsonal attention of the parents arc primarily responsible for innktno the child what it is. Children ircqiveniiy resemble their parents; almost as ottcn ihcy do not. in which case Ihcy arc likely to resemble someone in the previous ancestry. The fact that we are the sum of all our' ancestors is responsible for different types of individuals in the same family. This Is the reason for the appearance of genius In commonplace families? and. occasionally, of idiots in brilliant families. Nevertheless, in this as In ether matters the majority is Inclined to rule, and tlic more brilliance there is In the. ancestry, the- more likelihood there is of Ihe appearance of brilliance In the children.

KOW OO OX .WITH THE STORY CHAPTEU X AS John Lassiter had insisted, -*• the annual Sunshine Club ball was the biggest party of the year. The whole town took part, but the affair was staged by what were known as "the older families"— ably and excitedly assisted by a goodly number of families who hoped one day to be included in that category. Helena had promised John Lns- sitcr that slje would go to the dance with him, but as the date .drew near she began to wonder as to the advisability of it. "I notice that-Leah Frazicr and hci- mother arc patronesses," she told Lnssltcr. "Don't you think it would be belter if I stayed away?" Lossilcr 'frowned. "I honestly believe that.the Fraziers and their friends have been able to impress you with their -importance." He put his. hands on her shoulders and 'turned her around to face him. "Look here . . . for a whole month I've been planning on having with me the belle of the ball. 1 won't be'"cheated out of the triumph!" * 4 s AT last .he persuaded her. In her .little^ apartment Helena (uesseu 1 for the party in one of the simplest evening dresses she had been able lo ifind at Henderson's. She discovered that she was icoking forward to the Sunshine Club affair The dance was to b= held on a huge open-air plal f n built especially for Uic.occaiL.i. When Lassiler and Helena parked near the pavilion she he.iid the ihylh- nnc strains of a popular tune iiiifijng," to. them Beyond (lie car; 'countless' lanterns flickered through the 'trees. The two sat there a moment, not moving, not thinking of leaving the car. Softly Helena began to hum. "You're more beautiful than usual tonight, Helena," Lassiter said softly. She smiled up at him impersonally. "It's the summer night haze," she told him. "Affects the vision. . , . Shall we start?" . The pavilion,was well covered with dancers, most of them young, all of them enjoying themselves immensely. Beyond them, almost at once, Helena saw a row of older men and women seated in wicker chairs along the edge of the platform. Mrs. Frazier was there, splendid-looking in a white gown and a short black fur evening coat. "Dance?" asked John Lassiter, and Helena drifted of! in his arms. They danced well together. Too well to spoil it with conversation. They had danced three tunes through before Helena encountered the suddenly resentful eyes of Leah Frazier. The Frazier girl was in white, like her mother, but her gown was daring. In her faultless hair she wore a tiny gardenia. "She's truly beautiful," Helena thought. She saw Leah's arm drop from her partner's shoulder, saw her gather up the folds of the white skirt and leave the dance floor. * * * \WHAT happened then, Helena would never forget as long as she lived. Leah spoke briefly to her mother. To Helena it seemed as if there was an almost instant exodus from that row of wicker chairs. "I—I'll have to leave," Helena whispered to Lassiter. She felt that every pair of eyes there must be on her. Lassiter did not see what was wrong at once. Then, at the far end of the pavilion, he glimpsed the Fraziers and their friends leaving. "I'll meet you at the car," Helena said • quickly. "You—you can tell them that I'm leaving . . . that I won't spoil their parly." Lassiter held to her wrist. "Helena, yon can't—" "Please let me go! People arc staring at us . . ." She wrenched hcv hand free, hurried from the dance, floor. Blindly she stumbled through the darkness to Lassiter's car. A moment later he joined her. "Forgive me," ho said. "Of course you wouldn't want to slay, under the circumstances." His face was white with rage. "Damn them," he said slowly and evenly. Helena put her hand on his arm. "You mustn't be angry with them," she told him. "You mustn't get mixed up in this. You've in the bank. You've got to'do'busi- ness in this iUnyn.* 1 Lassiter turned to her, took both her hands in his.

" His answering laugh was w I—I want .to fell you where going," he said. "You might I of it nnd misunderstand. I 1, to go to the Frnzicrs for din...

But at (i, long aft, the store was quiet, Helena broM; Her head in her arms upon til 1 desk, she burst into tears. j!

Those rev- clalicns were exceedingly encouraging, because they showed the extent to' which we can improve upon the qualities with which v/e begin life. Amon-j the most eminent men were some' who. in childhood, seemed to have: intelligence below the highest order; Yet, it was found thai high Intelligence, combined with Ihe greatest possible degree of persistence, Is likely lo lead to greater achievement than the highest degree of intelligence wllli less pcrsislencc. * • * People who -- become great as writers were found to rate lower In persistence .and balance, but higher in all social Irails and in emotional reactions, Ihan did the average eminent man. Writers were characterized by imaginativeness, esthetic feeling, and an inclination toward pleasure. Wrilers exceeded Ihe average eminent Individual in their desire lo be leaders, in estimating the value .of their own talents, iii originality of ideas, in memory, and in keenness of observation. . However, writers were below the average in soundness of common sense, and in the degree to which action and thought are dependent on reason. 1 Among eminent men, scientists were found to rale high in strength or force of character, in quality of mind or intellect, and in activity and balance; but the scientists were low In social qualities and in their estimation of themselves. Weather conditions are recorded by movements of birds, animals, and insects as faithfully as by the modem scientific Instruments. ,, OUR BOARDING HOUSE Train Brakes to Be Set by Special Rs BERLIN (UP) — Special li rays "will apply th- brakes : bring lo a standstill a new el trie locomotive to be used on German railways between Be. and Munich.
