The Tenant Problem Anybody wlio iliitiliK Unit a final and complete solution rif all the problems involved in lite farm tenancy situation ran conn: out of Uic conl'er- cncc sponsored l>y Governor Kntvcll ia a hopeless opliinisl. But those who declare that the acknowledged evils of the tenant, system are atnon); Ihosu things ahout which iiolliiHjf can be done iiuihc themselves ciiually ridiculous. T!ie shaiTtToppoi- situation is a problem in human naliire and in education as well as in economies. A good many members of the tenant cjtiss, we' suspect, arc uoiigcnilii/jy linfil for any higher place in the social and economic scale. A good many more require only training and opportunity to become successful independent fanners, while some few, as in every class of society, have the basic ()iialiliciitioiis for high achievement. A practical solution of the problem, therefore, must begin by providing adequate opportunity for cduwiUon, including training in farm mnmige- mcnL H must include a chance lo acquire land on easy terms for those who show themselves competent. And it must not leave out of consideration - lliosc who are belter lilted to be tenants Hut!! aiiything else. They should be assured fair,.' treatment,, which they icceive from, a ma.jbrily of landlords, but it would he a mistake to attempt to sot themselves up lo forcdeslincd failure as independent operators. Slot Machines Up at Joliel, 111., Sam Ctisamano is in jail because he smashed a slot machine after his savings of $KiO, earned by pick and shovel labor, had been stolen by lu's 18-yoar-old son and put in slot,""machines. Our sympathies are with Sam and \ve trust that the jury which hears bis case will deal leniently with him. Ceilainly there has been enough of tragedy for the Cusrtiiiano family in the incident. Possibly the affair may have the beneficial clfect of arousing public sentiment in Joliet to demand enforcement against slot machines of the gambling statutes. Such mechanical contraptions for snaring the nickels, dimes and quarters of the ignorant and gullible have no place in any self- OUT OUR WAY rcspeding community. It is said that most of us have an instinctive love of galnbling. That is probably true. Hut there is no justification for permitting the commercial exploitation of that instinct through an inherently dishonest device that takes for ils victims chielly the young and inexperienced. Millions For l^tlronagu Michigan's antiquated spoils system costs ils taxpayers a million dollars or more a year! That is (be conservative csliiiuile of (he stale's civil service study commission. Among the evils of expensive patronage, the (-•otnmi.sKiou listed excessive labor turnover, inexperienced, in- Vompclent, and untrained help, political activity of employes, unfair salaries and overstuffed payrolls. What to do about it? Inaugurate civil service, the commission urges. Hut first launch an impartial mid exhaustive survey of the patronage system to get tho fads and figures before the voters. This course is open to every state, one that should prove eminently "worth while.

His expression was puzzled, displeased. "What," he began, "have you done lo yourself? It's a masquerade, isn't it? Some Itiud of joke nn me?" Molly didn't like Ihc tone of his voice. II was irritated, tinged with resentment. "Don't you like mo as well in these clothes?" she asked. "Suits me, if it does you," Nelson Whitlakcr spoke abruplly, "but Ihe idea back of it puzzles me." Molly was silent for a inoinenl. The words had sounded crude. She felt a sense of disappointment, too, liccjuise he was not quite as handsome by daylight as he had been in the softened glow of "The Heel Poppy." i t t "jyi'OLLY was troubled. The thought of Brent brought a lump in her lliroal. How wise ho was. What foolish, romantic notion had bronchi her out tonight with a man -who was a complete stranger to her? On her way wifli him lo some unknown place called "Frcnchy's"? "Is it far fo Frenchy's?" she nskcd suddenly. He turned and she felt his eyes searching her face. "Not very," he said. "Why?" aiolly hesitated. "I was thinking if it is, pel-Imps it would be best not to go there toniijlil, because I must be back by 1(1." "Double-dating? Wel'l, if you keep him waiting, that's his hard luck." No, Molly decided, I don't like him at all. I wish I were at home. Hp . was putting on some sort of "The Red. Poppy." "Comfortable?" Nelson Whittaker inquired. '"i'cs, perfectly," Molly answered. "This is a grand car. It's new. isn't it?" "Well, almost. I bought it to- JXI day from a. fellow because it's some traveler." "Going away?" Molly asked. "I'm thinking ol it." Odd. Everybody seemed lo be going away. Molly was wishing now dial she.had gone to Lake Placid, as Donna had suggested. Then she wouldn't be moving away from familiar surroundings in a car lliat could travel.

His voice rang vibrantly. "I'm sorry it I've been rude. To tell the truth, there's a deal I'm trying lo put over. A big deal, and my nerves are jumpy. Maybe you've never gain- bled.

"Jusl let me catch any of my friends selling mo the wrong kind of stock! Well, here we are at Frcnchy's." He assisted Molly from the car, and she entered Ihe building with feeling of relief.
