Tlie County Primary There is little in llic results of yesterday's Democratic primary in this county that could not have been predicted by any observer whose view of the situation was not obscured by paiiiaansbip. Without exception, we believe the candidates finished us any competently prepared form shout would have indicated. If the returns, contained any real surprise it was in the si/.e of the nifi.jority which the voters of his home county accorded \V. J. Driver in his race for rcnominalion for the seal, in congress which he has held for ili years. Tliat^volc must lie interpreted not as a rebuke or a repudiation of Mr. Driver's chief opponent, Zal Ii. Harrison, whose record as a public official lias been excellent, but rather as a tribute; to the vigor and effectiveness with which Air. Driver has served the interests of his constituents'. ; It was a well-earned pro-Driver vote and in no sense tin anti-Harrison vole.- Something of the same tiling can be said of Hale Jackson's victory in the race toy 'sheriff. If is candidacy had the advantage of certain political alignments that all but made his victory certain in advance, but the sine of the vote which he received, and the support : accorded him from all parts of the county, must be taken as an endorsement of the line record which he has made as an officer and as evidence of popular approval of the record of the sheriff's administration of which lie lias been a part. Of the. newly nominated county of- licials the heaviest .responsibility is faced by S. 11. Gladish, victor in the . race for comity judge, whose task it will be for the ensuing two years to maintain the functions and services of county government despite an exceedingly difficult financial situation. Comity revenues are limited and inelastic. Demands upon county government are continually expanding. We believe \vc can do Judge Gladish no-better service than to remind the people of the county that he will not be able to spend much for new roads, bridges or other improvements without serious .damage fo the credit of the comity, already severely strained. Citizens 'must remember that, projects in which they are interested must be judged not alone upon their merits- but also upon the basis of the county's financial ability. OUT OUR WAY Far Removed Is Anlo frojn Buggy Km If il be po.ssiljlo to liilk about, the liorso and biiKgy day.s witlioul gt'ltinfj; into ii discussion of politics, il might I)C poinlcd out that most of us Imvu it fairly cockeyed idea of wlint the horse .nnd buifgy era really was like. Unless our incinories are fairly long and iiccuralu, we assume tliat the horse and buggy occupied'much the same place that the automobile occupies today. We figure lliiit il WHH the ordinary mode of conveyance for the ordinary family; that the average man was as used to viewing the open road over the jo^iii); hain.s of Old Dobbin an lie now i.s used to viewing it over the bright nickel of his radiator cap ornament. A recent advertisemeiit points out that this assumption is entirely false. Today, this advertisement discloses, three out -of four American familit.s have aittomobirus. In 1'JOO not one urban family in 100 had a horse and bufjgy. The overwhelming majority of Americans who lived in the horse and buggy age, in other words, did their living without the aid of the horse and buggy. IVoll-Planned .Industry This it) the time of year when the automobile industry expects a slump. But somehow, this year, the slump hasn't appeared. The factories are still busy. So far, they have experienced their best year in history except for .11)29; and the intcrostiiig thing about it is that, although they expect actual production of ears for the full year lo fall somewhat below the 102!) figures, they .are beginning to suspect Unit profits actually will be higher. Not all (he record number of cars made in l!)2<) were sold. This year, sales are keeping rijjht up with production. Leaders in the industry have .succeeded in perfecting what lliey call "controlled production;" furthermore, they have additionally stabilized distribution by introducing i new models in the fall. "' The point of all this is lhat we have hf|i-e that inuch-mallifened phenomenon, "economic planning," in its best form. This 'is not planning superimposed from above by an officious government; il is planning devised and carried out by [he industry itself. And it works!

RESORTAHOTEL CHAPTER XII A NN dressed quickly, nnd rejoined ISill on the boalhouse clocks. In those few moments since Bill had como to her with the talc of the stolen bonds IUH thoughts had raced swiftly, but her course was perfectly clear. Though it would take courage for her to go before the people in the lobby of the hotel and say that she had spent last night on the mountain with Bill Ware, she hail steeled herself to do it. Of course Dill couldn't have taken the bonds, and it was her duly to shield him. As they walked up the lake shore toward the hotel hci- heart went out to Bill Ware. She didn't tell him what she was going But she looked the hotel manager in the e'ye, and said, "I,spent the entire night in a leaii-lo with Bill Ware. "We were trapped by a storm on the mounjainr We didn't return to Hie hotel unlil this morning." Bill stood there, clenching his fists, but feeling fiercely proud of her. She was a game one, all right. There was nothing he could do about her frank admission before all those people, except— His eyes glittered with a new light, as he faced her. They were together now ag;<nst the v/orld. Outside, on the terrace, he said, "But why—why did you do it?" "Because it was Ihe only thing to do," she said. "And because—" His eyes grew wide. "Do you mean it? Oh, you must!" « i 3 ^ BELLBOY came out on Hie porch to call Ann lo the telephone. She left Bill, standing (here with all his hopes 6* winning the sun and the moon and the earth and the stars. The voice on the telephone was Jaime's, lie said, "I want to tec y«i. Ann. Please." Ihc sound of lhat voice sSill hat! a hold on her. His pica evoked her sympathy. "I'm sorry I behaved as I did on th'j docks," Jaime went on. "I didn't even stop to say goodby. That's why I want to see you. I want to apologize. I think you're a swell girl." He. added, "I'm leaving for Canada within the I'.our. I'll'drive"by"to sec you in the car." i Ann knew she distrusted Jaime J now, but she gave her assent. ' When she came back on the terrace Bill watched her closely. "That was Jaime," she said. "He's on Ills way to Canada." "That's funny," Bill sale! curtly. "I5c borrowed $00 from me day before yesterday. I should think lie might have let me know if; lie was leaving." Ann stared at him, wide-eyed. "Did Jaime need money? Do you suppose he lost so much gambling on the races that he—" 'I didn't know what lie wanted with il. It seems that he lives on an allowance—so much a month. Ife was in a jam, and promised lo pay me back today." Ann's eyes were dark. "Could those missing bonds be disposed o£ in Canada?" she said. "Yes." Ami whirled about, and faced the water. Her throat hurt her. Tears dimmed her eyes. * * « TATME did not show up at the Glcnwood Inn. By the time he had his bags packed the detectives had come to his room in the big hotel across the lake, and arrested him. One o£ the guests had seen him prowling around the inn around 1 o'clock the night before. Ho had come, ostensibly, (o find Ann. They found the bonds in one ot Jaime's bags, lie broke down (hen and admitted that ho had lost heavily on the races. He needed some money quickly to cover margins on a stock deal. A weakling to the core, he had planted the wrapper in Bill's room lo throw suspicion on him. Ann heard this news from Bill. After that i-ic had gone to her ream, thrown herself face down on the bed, and lain there for almost an hour. When she arose she bathed her eyes and went down to meet Bill again. They walked along the mho shore, and look an old road leading into the f woods. Ann didn't want to see anybody. She didn't even want to think. They lalked of trivial, meaningless things such as the color of autumn leaves, and llic new movies.' But when Jhey reached Echo Pond, Bill-reached out and look her hand. They walked along, saying little. ' "Go oa," Bill said finally. "Tell rao why you were willing to ta ray side? It look a lot of the ris sluft in you to tell those peoj that you and I were marooned (he mountains." Ann turned to him, and her c were shining again. "Oh, thai she said carelessly. "But I do lo you, Bill. Why shouldn't I ta! your side against the who world?" i He gathered her in his am' "You angel," he murmured. "¥<• darling." ; WHEN she had recovered Ii breath after this crushing er! brace she said, smiling, "Pica: Mr. W?rc! Why, I hardly hnc you. Aren't you just the youi man who soif. me (his vacation "You bet I am! And now 1 like like to sell you myself. I' a good job, and I like it. I've ji had a raise.
