NcM Term Will Be No Party /'or President No matter who wins the coming election, a lonely 'and frequently very tired man is going to he occupying (he. While 11 oust; during (lie next four years. The prospects 'nr'c so dark it is a wondri 1 any man would want the job. For the country is in the initial of a pencil' of considerable .stress, and the focal point of this stress will rest squarely in the middle ot" the executive mansion. Consider, for a inoinent, what the occupant will he up against. He will he forced to decide whether the United States is going lo swing lo the right or to the loft during the next four yours. Whoever- Die winner is, the pressure on him will he- \ tremendous; and if he tries to how a straight middle course it will be greater than ever, for each side will accuse him of going in thi> wrong direction. lie will have to direct the foreign policy of the most powerful nation in the world at a f,imc when—unless all observers are mistaken—the world will be in greater' danger of stumbling into war than at any tim,e since 1918. He will be faced wilh the titanic task ol erecting defenses against the drouth and erosion thai have .become so dangerous to our future as an agricultural nation. In sonic ways this will ,bc one of his greatest tasks, since it involves nothing less "than preserving the physical" assets of the land 'from incalculable natural forces. He will be held responsible, rightly Or wrongly, for (lie maintenance of American prosperity in a "woiid which is following selfish and blind nation- ' alistte policies that lead away from prosperity. There will not he a great deal that lie wilt be able to do about this, and he will have the comfort of knowing thai, no mailer what course lit follows, he will meet with determined opposition. It is the same way with unemployment Here, again, lh u president should not be held wholly responsible, or even ..chiefly responsible, for the growth or diminution of that terrible problem. But his fellow citizens will blame him, just the same. It may be a well-nigh impossible- task, but he will have lo find a solution. Most iniporlanl of all, lie will have to furnish the people of America with a moral and omolional .'rallying point. The people arc tired and confused, and they have been that way for years. They waul desperately lo be drawn together, to be persuaded that Ihere is a way Ihey can follow, and lo ho led along thai way. One of these days they may do ^ .some very distressing thing.-; if that conviction and lhal leadership arc not. given Ihuin, Jt is going lo he up to Ihe president lo meet Uiat demand. H W hard lo think of any man on earlh on whom more will depend than Ihe President of Ihc United Stales in Ihe next four years. The -campaign is beginning to speed up, and hard things will be said about both candidates fur the next couple of months. Hefore we get too eino- Monal, we might stop lo give Ihe winner, whoever he is—Itoosevelt or Lan- doii—our deepest sympathy, —Bruce Cation, BLYl'HEVlLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Record Rout of Crime H is with justifiable .satisfaction that ,1. Edgar Hoover reports that the Federal Bureau of Investigation "has solved every kidnaping case on which it performed investigative work .since enactment of the Lindbergh kidnap- ing law in June, li)32." Moreover, says the chief of the "G- nion," for every dollar spent in operating his department during the last fiscal year, approximately ?7 in stolen property was recovered. The Bureau of Investigation in the .same period obtained 3905 convictions. Sentences imposed totaled .U,OG7 years. Included in these oases were of Alvin Karpis, Harry Campbell, William JMahan, and Thomas JI. Robinson, Jr. Here is a record that is America's best insurance against crime. H is adequate proof that we can control racketeering, gangsterism, and wholesale lawlessness. And it is one that stale and local law enforcement agencies might well emulate. We need io practice.

NOW tiO ».V WITH Till-: STORY CHAPTER IX TJACIC .in the library, Brent " turned the pages of the news- 'papcr with shaking lingers. The report ot Molly's death had almost crowded the story of the bank robber from the front page. It was there, less conspicuously placed, and there was a line reading, "Picture on Page 2." Brent studied the photograph of the young man the police had slain. There wasn't a doubt ot it. He was the same man who had danced with Molly that night al "The Reel Poppy." "ft makes sense. It's a complete pallern," Brent found himself saying aloud. "It's got to make sense!" He picked up the telephone-ami called a number. "Mrs. Milford, please. Tell her Brent Stuart is calling.' 1 After a short interval lie heard i Donna's voice. "Brent, you poor unhappy man." "Donna, may I come out for a momcnf.' It's something urgent or I wouldn't ask you to sec me now." "Of course, Brent. Come immediately." if i if pIFTEEN minutes later lie was saying, ''Donna, please humor me.

Any tiling at all you may have noticed," Brent urged gently. "It's so hiivd to lalk about. It locsn't seem as though it could 'no true." Donna's voice was cioked with emotion. "Yes," Brent said in a low tone, "but try (o remember." "1 noticed one thing particularly. We—they," she shuddered. 'Her shoes were so light.

I wanted her to have her fun, and not be swept inlo marriage because of an early romance." Donna watched him drive away. Brent was taking this awfully hard. Driving rapidly, Brent found himself talking aloud. "The girl who killed herself wasn't Molly. Molly sent me a message after (hat girl was dead. She's alive!" 'TWERE •*- Molly was something that had fo do. She shuddered a little as she took out the compact and lipstick that had belonged to the dead girl. She brightened her lips up to a vulgar vividness, spread a crimson flush on her cheeks, and applied powder lo tier forehead and chin. The door had opened quietly. Frightened, Molly dropped the articles in her purse and turned. Hut the masked woman's words — harsh and ugly as tiiey were — reassured Molly.

It took him 11 days, at an average speed of 35 miles a day, with the exception of the last when he covered 05 miles lo attain his goal. The object of his trip. Smith declares, was merely that as he wanted lo move lo San Francisco, and as he did not want to part with his horse, he scnl Ihc family by train and rode the horse. Ihe only advantage, he admits, that he had over automobiles lay in the fact that while they were compelled to. remain on the good roads, he was able to take all the short cuts, and bad roads which enabled him to cut llic dis- lance if not increase the speed.
