Whatever else it may bo, the Roosevelt administration is not a political dictatorship nor docs it threaten to become one. Nowhere else on earth docs the ' citizen enjoy I lie complete freedom lo condemn and oppose lii.s government and even, lo vil- lify the head of the slate that is en- loud by the luimblesf American.

A recent instance is that in Cleveland, 0., whore Hie city's civil service commission has abandoned its general age limit of <)5 years in holding examinations. City od'icials agreed that it's obviously absurd to consider that a person reaching '15 automatically becomes less competent to (ill a post than one a year or so younger, or to assume (hill every man or w<raan at -15 is ready for the shell'. The ability of a person to perform (he duties of an ofl'ice is not a matter of years, but of training, education, and physical condition. Any arbitrary «gc limit, siicl) as '15, therefore is utterly without justification. Are You Fingcrprinicd. The G-men have announced with pride that they now have the fingerprints of John D Kockel'ellcr jr., and other well-known men. These are the latest additions to the Federal Bureau of Investigation's growing list of civilian fingerprints. .1. Kdgar Hoover explains: "When a person places his fingerprints in the bureau's civil files, he automatically insures his falnily itk'itiiist prolonged mental sulVering and the expenditure of i\ large amount of money in an ell'orl to locate him, should he be unfortunate enough to perish in some manner in which all means of idcnlilicalion except fingerprints are lost, or should he become the victim of amnesia."

Jaime was personable, chi and they enjoyed Ihe same things. They laughed at the same jokes! But, in Ihc back of her mind, was a fainl ilesirc to reform him. The iden grew until it subordinated all oilier considerations. It satisfied some urge in her that she couldn't define. But a desire to reform a wan does not help gain insight inlo the man's real character. Thc vacation experience blinded Ann. She didn't know Jrjime Laird, She got up and Hung the windows open. Gone were -her doubts when she saw the bright sun on the choppy waves out there. When she went downstairs she met Bill Ware in the lobby. He came toward her again with his ridiculous air of proprietorship. He was sure of himself—lhat young man! But Ann recalled his sincere avowal of his feeling for her. His chin was stubborn. He had said, "Perhaps every man is selfish over the girl he loves." Bill couldn't afford' yachts and gay parties, but when he saw something lie thought was really climb. He lived too intensely at all times. He had stubbornly laid ,iis course, and he wasn't going lo deviale from it, no matter how much it hurt!

She sensed thc clanger in vacation romances now, but thought Ehc was sufficiently aware of herself lo avoid lliem. A resort hotel was an artificial community, isolated from tiic home and the world's work. It was the s^cn2 of color ami gaiety th2 year round. There was a complete lack of restraining contacts, and this left one adrift. The edges of all experience were blurred. And vacation romance was sometimes blurry. Tlic easy familiarity in a resort hotel deceived one about the things that really counted. Ann was a little bewildered \rj the admiration she had been receiving. She began to clistrus', her own impulses. She was going to meet Jaime today with a feeling o[ m-emoni- Bill on the ic drove up fo lake her to the regalia on St. Regis Lake. For n moment thc two men eyed each other with cool,- measuring regard. Dill couldn't rind it in himself lo dis- this personable youlh who somehow w n 11 o p e d his chances of sweeping Ann off her feet. But Bill fell that, of all the men ul the resort, Ann had picked the wrong man. After he had waited all these years fo find the right Kh'lj she had fallen for a weakling. All tin! Bill could do was to wait—and see what would happen. Imiinct told him that Ann was infatuated with this gay lad. The she looker! at him, the way die made him his reefer around his throat ns n protection of the futility of his own blunt efforts to make her scc'his love. When the pair drove a\Vay, tliei gny voices- drowned by the roa, of Jaime's expensive motor, Bill lie was deferential. He remembered nil the Hlllc things tliat pleased her. His flattery was warm and, since there were so many other pretty girls who waved gaily to him from boats, it was convincing. When the boat was in its pen again, and they were driving along the shore, watching'the sun set behind the neighboring mountain range, there was a look in Jaime's eyes that made her believe in him at last. She didn't distrust her impulses any long Just now she wanted to kmr better. She yielded to 1 urge to heart-searching He parked the car on a peninsula which jutted out into the lake, and for a long lime they sat there, silent. He slipped an arm around her, holding her close. "Have a good lime?" "What do you think?" she asked, smiling. "It was marvelous. Too soon this is all going to end." "Why must it end? I don't want it lo end." ' 'Work!" she said suecinclly. "Back to the pots nnd pans." "Oh—work! Let's not tall; about anything disagreeable now." Suddenly his eyes shone, and ho lurried to her. "What do ,ymi say? Lot's pack our duds and run up to Canada for the weekend. You'll be bock in plenty of lime to climb that absurd mountain you've promised to climb with Bill Ware." "That sounds very attractive" she said. "But—" "We'd have a gay time! Don't be n fossil. What do you care what a lot of porch-sitters at thc hotel would say? We're young. .
