The Path lo Freedom In a jail in Samlusky, 0., a smrill- to\\'u business njaii is »waiting I vial on a" charge of-first'degree nunxluv— because he wauled lo be -"fvee" ami didn't have Ihe wil to know wlmt freedom really is. This man, a middle-ii^ed chap iip- parciilly of the Good-Time: Charlie species, liked to fu bill, with the hoy.s and play aroiiiu]. lie, apparently, liked to go out with the givls. And he liad a wife, who was a settled, (jtiict sort of person, several years older than ho is. In this highly imperfect world there are a good many men in that same situation. Not many of them, fortunately, exercise as much stupidity and cruelty in their effort lo get oiit of it. For this man took his wife walking in the wootis one evening and, when she slopped .ahead of him'on a lonely path, phot her lo death. Now, of course, he faces an even lonelier palh with possibly an electric chair at lh c end of it, and his desire to be "free" has led him just where it usually leads.; people who suppose that freedom means the evading of • responsibilities. The case is so sordid and its principal figure is such a 'miserable .specimen of the human race that tlie whole business wouldn't. be worth thinking twice aboul—except for the fact that there are a good miuiy people who have that same foolish notion that they could be ''free" if only they:could gel rid of sonic of their Duties and responsibilities. ' < •:•; • " ,-•' ;:' The iroad to freedom isn't as simple as thai. You don't get your feet on it by running away from things. ]t is never trodden by the feet of cowards and shirkers. For one of Ihp oddest things about this world is the fact thiii, lhc surest «ay lo get this personal, individual freedom that v,o all talk so much aboul is to forget it • entirely and devote one's self (o the service of someone else. We find ouv freedom by turning our backs on it.. Lik c Columbus, we have to sail west to gel to the east. —Bruce Cation. New Attack on War Profits Socialist Piemier Leon muni of Prance believes thai munition makers sow the seeds of war, ami so Monsieur Blum is going ahead with a drastic program lo "lake Ihe profits out of war." Specifically, he propose* to nationalise the munitions industry. It i.s a step Unit (he world will watch intently. America, for in.sla'hcc, .should Ije particularly interested because members of the United States senate commillce investigating the munitions industry concluded their labors with similar recommendations. In America, of course, the proposal lo render war profitless hasn't taken hold firmly enough as yet lo result in action, France is finding, too, that Ihe program to outlaw prollleering in munitions is exceedingly difficult to mi! over. Hut the effort is worth making: Premier Blum's method 0 [ reducing the danger of war deserves a trial, at leasl.

EATON WEDNESDAY. JULY 29, 1 SoJtuck lor £ove kr NARD JONES O'»(.,. ' CHAPTER XII IN the sudden darkness, with only Ihe spot of yellow from Jameson's flashlight, Helena's head began lo whirl. It was with an effort that she managed to follow him to Ihe elevator. Inside the cage they brushed together for an instant, and ho caught her arm. "I ... I thought you were fall- Ing," lie said uncertainly—and then Helena found herself held firmly ngainsl him, heard him whispering, "I love yon . . . I've loved you since lhat first day in the store!" With an effort that was beyond her own strength, Helena shoved herself free and staggered back against tlin wall of the elevator cage. The flashlight clattered to the floor and she retrieved it quickly, sent its beam /nil into Jameson's ynlc, twisted features. "If yon come near me again," Hclcm lold him evenly, "I'll use this as a club!" The threat was unnecessary. Wordless, Jameson stepped to the control lever and started tlie cage downward. "Suppose wo pretend that it never happened," Hr'ena said. "I'd rather go on hor/e alone, if yon don't mind. Any—and I appreciate what you'v^shown me." She hurried oiv through flic darkness as if pursued by some frightful apparition she dare not turn and face. It was an apparition made up of. many facts. Tlie fawning Jameson, so lacking in control that she felt somehow ashamed .for him. The cold, deceitful, malicious Leah Frazlcr. And lioger Barnes, pretending to be nn ally. Even—yes, even John Lussitcr. John Lassiler who would liiivc friendship only until it began lo pinch. "I've got to leave . . ." she told herself over and .over as she rushed on in the darkness. "I've got to i'et out . . ." As publisher of the toxvn's two newspapers for all of 30 years, ISen Morris had seen a varied lot of people wall; in and out of. his oflice. But never in all those 30 years hart he seen a more determined one than Helena. "Let IYY: get this straight," Morris said gently. "You soy you are going to ask Courtney to draw up papers which will make Henderson's an employes' stock company. The salary yen have coming you wish given to some worthy town charily. The Henderson house you intend to have sold, and the proceeds turned jovcr to the same chnrily. Is that correct?" Helen?, nodded slowly. "I'm leaving town tonight. Mr. Courl- ney can draw up the necessary papers and send them to me. I'm asking him to be one of the officers of (he new company. I'd like to have you as one, Mr. Morris." "Rut why?" "As a newspaper publisher you're interested in the town as a whole. You'll want lo see the store— Ihe biggest establishment here— be a success." "I couldn't very well accept," Morris lold her. "Bui I'll make you a promise," he added with a grin. "I'll watch Courtney, and if it looks as though he's not doing right by your ideas I'll— I'll blast him good!" Helena smiled. "I ... I sort ol felt I could count on you." got up from his chair, moved around tho desk and confronted Helena seriously. "I just want lo say I'm sorry you've decided to do this. The town needs a woman like you. But I can tell by the cut of your jib that neither love nor money could stop you. . . ." He chuckled to himself. "Well, after all, you're a woman and maybe love could. But imyhow, not money, and that's what's involved in this ease." "Yes," said Hole n a slowly. "That's ... all that's involved in this case." It w;is still early when she left the- publisher's oflice and made her \v;iy toward Henderson's Department Store. Without removing her and coal, she sat down to ;i typewriter and tapped out a short nole to Courtney. "I am leaving town tonight," she wrote. "Please draw up the papers necessary to turn Ihe slorc over lo tlic employes, with yourself in ;i salaried advisory capacity. Whatever details you decide upon will be salisfactory with me, and you can send the papers fo me for my signature. The salary due me is to he /turned over to charily, and also the proceeds from the sale of Ihe house." She added a paragraph of appreciation for Courtney's help, and signed it "Helen;)." This done, she left her own office and walked briskly down the hall fo Koger Barnes' rloor. "As soon as I leave here," she told him evenly, "I'm going to lhc cashier's office to have her write you a check in lieu of notice." "You're what?" he said, unbelieving at first. "I— I don't know what you mean." ."I mean you're through, Mr. Barnes." She smiled grimly. "Fired —discharged— whatever you like to call it." Barnes got to his feet, his thin face crimson. "I expected some- tiling like this from you. But I'm warning yon flit-'.—" "No," Helena interrupted hi quickly, "I'm warning yon. I hr»' certain plans for this store, and I you try lo slop them—1C you ev( allcinpl lo question the UgalitJ f\ Peter's will—I'll, give you sons explaining lo do.

THE END which central- the muscles lhat take part in speech. When parents try to change a ^ungstcr who is normally left- handed into u right-handed child, they really are endeavoring 10 change Ihe mechanism which controls motions through the nervous system. As a resi'lt. the cliikl may hesitate in its motions, this hesitation revealing itself in extraordinary awkwardness and in difficulties in speech. Thus, many authorities arc inclined to credit stuttering and stammering In certain cases to the fact, that a normally lett- hnndcti chilti was forced to become right-handed. Remember, however, that this stuttering and stammering in speech may also be reflected in difficulties in rending, in writhiB, in Ihinking, and in behavior generally. If Ihe mental machinery is ad- houlcl result cither in delay Along with Icft-liamlcdr-f Ihere may be Icft-eycdncss. One eye usually is . dominant. It is used in sighting for shooting, for kclfnyj, for bnsebnll, or for any ether performance which requires eye and hand co-ordination. .Remember, also, that the dllVI- culty of adjustment, may be so serious as to bring abort irritation, fatigue, and reactions of obstinacy and stubbornness. Thus, child psychologists insist that children who arc lazy, children who lie or steal in an unusual man-, ncr, cr who manifest other ex- 1 trncrdinary forms of conduct may do so simply because of dili'icuf-j lies in adjusting Iheir physical machinery lo types of control for which that machinery never was intended.
