Calm Over 'American' Investments in. Spain One of the most encouraging signs of changing thought is the comparative calm which greeted announcement Unit "American" factories in Spain were : being seined by the left wing government, now fighting for ils life. It is safe to say that 20 ywirs ntfo any such iiniioiincemciil would have been greeted by a national wave of indignation and n sliU'-bnckcd diplomatic note insisting that "American rights" bo ros]>ccle<l—or else. What happened this time was a formal note of protest from Secretary of Stale Cordell Hull, cautioning .Spanish authorities that they would be expected to account for the situation after the lighting is over.. Thai was more a mutter of form "to keep the record straight" l.hiin any sort of threat (o do anything , about it immediately. And the .public indignation, if any, was practically inaudible. The reason is not only a change in thinking, however, btit a change in the international setup Under which great businesses operate. The average man is apt to think today, "JVoli, whose business is it? Is it 'American' in ;my real .souse of being the properly of, O r in (lie real interest of, thp American people? Or is it just something that happens to be owned by a couple of fellows who .happens to be Americans?".. in the case of Spain, there is a double reason to ask questions. I<V 30 years I here h;i,<i been goin { r OM j,, Spain a sort of game of hide-ami-' seek between the government and a dozen large American corporations with interests or factories there. It began under the Rivera dictatorship, who.i a scheme of taxing outside firms was tried. Rivera ordered that foreign linns with Spanish subsidiaries should pay a (flx ba8m) ot , t , ic corporation's total earnings, regardless of what part of those earnings were made in Spain. To duck the tax, many corporations simply incorporated their Spanish branches in Spain, with Spanish directors nnd stockholders through whom Ihey could continue control. But, legally, ownership is Spanish. So when the fighting ami terror is over, and the slate department tries to gel an adjustment for destruction or seizure of. American property, it OUT OURWAY" may /hid polite Spanish officials lifting polite Iberian eyebrows and asking "What American property?" All of which means that American interests abroad arc not scanned with the same glasses which' they were,20 years ago. Kven if they arc so scanned, they may prove to be dill'erent today. Crocks and Futures Gradually we have become accustomed to women's dollies that reveal the wearers with increasing frankness. But now the Parisian dressmakers are promoting an idea thai brings a chill of apprehension. They propose lo > reveal through clothes, not only the external woman, but the innermost secrets of her heart and the fabric of her being. All this by working into'the dollies the ccie.s- lial symbols and astrological dingbats which the dressmaker's own private astrologer says govern th 0 lady's personality and future. ' ' Go slow, ladies! Picture yourself at dinner with that man lo whom you are being especially sweet, lie oasis a "wayward eye at a frilled ruffle or embroidered border of mailame's coslume, and if he's a student ot the stars, tile symbols may terrify him. Think twice, Jlr. Parisian dvqss- maker, before you make clothes more revealing (ban even your most exhibition-minded client might wish! 7 elevisioim's Promise To those who arc speculating on the future of television, which now sceins "just around Hie corner," it might be worth while to look back 10 years. in August, .1026, Gertrude' Mdcrle was swimming the Knfjlish Channel, the Hall-Mi [Is case was in full blast, ami John Gilbert was appearing in "The Kg Parade." It was early' in that same month that Warner Urolhors presented their lirsl talkies. There was a talk by Will .Hays, coming at the astounded audience, right out of the cold screen. There was the Philharmonic Orchestra, Aliscba lOlnian, Kfrem Kimbafist, Mmimelir, Anna Case and oilier groat musicians. The audience applauded wildly for Hie "novelty." Now it is 10 years from that August of J!)2C. Everybody knows what has happened. Maybe that nllords the uosl guess about the future of television. Such is Ihe rising pessimism abroail that people nrc beginning lo lose fnith in the possibility of muling a reasonable way out. —Prof. Charles E.

Since the change in the tissues ol the brain is quite definite in most rases, mortem methods of treatment are devoted to getting the fluid out of the brain as rap- idly ns possible. A new method of treatment, recently described, involves draining oil of a certain amount of spinal fluid. This is done by putting a needle into the spinal cr>l- 11 inn and permitting anywhere frcm one-twentieth lo one-tenth of a pint of Ihe spinal fluid to escape. In addition, quantities of dex- Ircse solutions are. injected directly into the veins, and magnesium sulphate, a form of salts is given in large doses by mouth. * » * All this produces a. pull on the fluid in Ihc (issues and causes the fluid to pour out through the kidneys and the bowels.

Brent Stuart slood before a window in the library of. his home. II was a room filled with mellow charm and warm color. "I've (old you, Simpson," Brent said, "that I won't sec anyone today." "Yes, sir. But Una is Ihe young man who waited for hours, Mr. Brcnl. He seemed so upset, sir, when you. didn't come in last night. If you'll pardon my saying so, sir—" "Yes, Simpson." lirent's tone revealed none of the anguish in his heart. He had spent all the night searching the cily for Molly. 1 lie had telephoned, and Donna hiul told him lhat Molly was out wilh a strange man—n man she had met at "The Red Poppy." Donna had kepi Brent on Ihe phone while she talked about how dreadful il had been of Wick to lake Molly to such a iiucsliomible night club. Then Brent had dashed of£ to make the rounds ot the dining and dancing places. He was thoroughly alarmed. Morning had come, and someone had telephoned lhat Molly had been found. 11 was nil like a horrible nightmare—lhat message had lorn Brent's world airarl. Molly was dead. Gay, laughing, heauliful, and sweet Molly was (lead. With everything to live for, she had found life not worth living. She must have known how .he loved'her, and ycl she had not wanted to slay here wilh him. *> *t * CIMPSON was still waiting in Ol lhc. doorway, watching his I young employer anxiously. What was the matter wilh Simpson? Didnl he understand how 16 do as he was told? Couldn't he realize how much Brent wanted to be alone now? . "Forgive me, sir," Simpson was saying, "but (lie young man is so anxious, so excited, Mr. Brent Ifc said he couldn't leave without seeing you." "Bring him in," Brent spoke hoarsely, A moment later Simpson ushered in a (lark-haired young man. The stranger slood regarding Brent timidly out of dark, melancholy eyes. "1 have a message for you Mr Stuart. That is, I had a message for you and then I lost if." "1 sec." Broil's tone was hollow. "Then what was the good of coming here?" "I was pretty sure I knew what was in Ihc message. The young lady trusted me. In facl, she paid me handsomely lo bring it to! you." I "I don'l know what you are talking about," Brent said. "Won't you sit down?" "I hurried off ns soon as I could," (lie visitor began abruptly. "I had to tell 'Frenchy' something, give him some excuse. He's Ihc man who owns the place where 1 play in iin orchestra. When I was half-way to town I put my hand in my pocket anil the slip ol paper the young lady had given me was gone. I must have pulled it out with my handkerchief. I remembered your name, though, and I looked up your address in n directory." "Yes," Brent put quietly, "(hen you camped on my doorstep all night, I hear. Or practically." '•'•CHE seemed such a nice girl," Ihe stranger said. "So worried and excited. She looked relieved when I nodded my head to let her know 1 would go. 1 think she wanted you to come very much. If I had only read the note —bul 1 didn't. I'm pretty sure she was afraid something was going to happen. And it did, Mr. Sluart, while I was gone. The man she was with was killed by the police. "She was little," mused the young man. "She wore a green dress nnd a hat wilh a green feather on it. Wait a momchl—I have something hero I'd forgotten." He pulled out a crumpled piece of paper. "She wrote some request numbers. This is one." Brent barely glanced at the crumpled paper. Slill holding ii, lie said, "I appreciate your coming < here. II was good of you to beiso interested. I have "had a great shock tb'day.
