Free Spcach Doing Nicely lit Probably no presidential will have exceeded (lie present one in tlie sheer weight of printed material, the sheer volume of verbiage Hung at the voters. Whatever this comes to, it nic;m.s harvest-lime to Hie people who are engaged in producing it. Consider the case of J. K. Rockwell, who edits the Daily Independent of Murphysboro, 111., a town of 10,000 in the very center of a rich farming and fruit-growing section of that state. Rockwell has never liked the New Deal, and has said so in good .straight terms 'throughout the last three years. His vehicle has been a daily column in his paper, circulation 3,500. A while back, Rorkw'cll got to thinking about the New Deal and his editorials about it, and decided to reprint selected pieces in a little pamphlet. Apparently copies got into the hands of the persons who count nl Republican .headquarters. They were pleased with "A Country Editor Views the New Deal," and evidently felt it represented the Republican point of view in a peculiarly effective manner. Result: an order to Kditor Rockwell from the Republican National /.Committee for 1,000,000 copies of his pamphlet. Though Editor Rockwell has a modern, plant for a lown of Mm-physboro's sivce, a million copies was something else again. He had to ;-turn thu order over t» ,a city print-. ing plant and be content with a royalty. Printers, publishers and broadcasting stations are pretty secure against depression until after ''November. There is scarcely a night without one ' or more nationally-broadcast speeches on the air, and the election still more than two mouths away. Even the streets aren't safe, for you never know when a sound truck is going to pull up and start blasting away at you. Already there arc .four books on Governor T.andon, and New Deal and anti-New Deal books come tumbling from the presses just as fast as 'the rollers will run. No one is so inconspicuous as not to be on a mailing li st for one or more Campaign propaganda sheets, some verging closer and closer to the scurrilous as the climax approaches. Temporary newspapers spring up like JiLYTllEVlLLB (ARK.)

It goes right on down to low tide in the scurrilous little sheets passed out on the street. The campaign itself is going to be Die best possible evidence (hat good old-fashk-uo;l American freedom of speech and press is still doing nicely, I hank you. —liruce Cation. 'jlliioian Kchos Every once in a while you see an inconspicuous little dispatch from Ethiopia or Koine, telling of another "bandit" attack on the Italian army of occupation. There is a raid on an outlying and isolated post; a sudden descent on the road to Eritrea, or a raid by as many as .1,500 Ethiopians on Addis Ababa itself. These are nol to be interpreted as meaning that there is any organized native army still in arms against the Italian invaders. Jiul they are straws which point to the fact that the cost of subduing Ethiopia i s not yet en- lirely paid. Could that have any connection with the fact that Mussolini | Kl s announced he is nboiit to go into the world money markets for another bit- loan? Pro ft i and Wages •' O l''or three months the interestint- wage plan of the Proctor and Gamble Co. of Cincinnati lias been in operation. The scheme bases employes' wages on the company's earnings. When profits rise, pay rises; when they fall, wages fall in proportion. So far profits and wages have risen and everybody, is happy. If profits fall off, will wage earners be content to share adversity as well as prosperity? Elimination of waste and unnecessary expense already has been notable, for each employe sees a chance offsetting some of the savings made. This plan is one of the most worthwhile large-scale industrial experiments now being made. Kvery employer and every employe may well watch it with interest. Movie acting is to stage acting what the work of the house puintcr s to Michelangelo. —Olis Skinner, stage .slur.

With the help of lite uflicer, Judith fought her way lo the big while vehicle. "Belle:- sit up front," the officer advised. WORDLESS, Judith climbed to the high cushioned scat. It seemed to her a wild, reckless ride, and the high steady whine of Hie siren did nothinf, to soothe her already ovcrwrouglv nerves. Unlil she reached the hospital she did hot realize thai her clothing was soaked through from the broken hydrant. There a night nurse peeled oif her dripping coal, and insisted she wrap herself in a blanket. How long Juriitli snt (here, hugging the i-am'utur and wrappc'd in the hospital blanket, she didn'l know. But at length she turned, trembling and miserable, to find a tall young man standing behind icr.

For what seemed minmes she stood rooted to the spot, terrified with the realization thai she had caused the driver running her accident—that the swerved to avoid down. She ran toward the- car, one hand clutching at her fcar- tighicncd throat. Even as she ran, the severed pipe of (he decapitated hydrant shot a stream of water high into the air. It cascaded down over the damaged car, drenching everything near. Ilced-i less of the geyser, Judith fought her way to the ear and looked inside. A % ian was slumped over the wheel, his hands hanging limp! "I saw him hit the fire plug," she heard someone say, "so the first tiling I did was call the city hospital." It was the man who had Iricd lo help her, Ihc man who owned the little fruit store. A moment later an officer arrived. "She was with him," the fruit man said, pointing at Jc.iitli. The ufljccr came toward her. "You hurt any?" "No . . . I-^I wasn't with him. I stepped down from the curb without looking and he—he hi! the hydrant to keep from bitting me." She looked at (h» oliccr, her face pale and drawn, "i's li<! . . . hurt badly?" "Can't tell," the officer said, scribbling in his little black notebook. "There's an ambulance on the way." "I wnnt to ffo to Ihc hospital with him," Judith said - (y.iickly. _There was "the; lieart--sfoppins whine ot the ambulance siren, and •- words were lost in the buzzing' son, Elberl, were visitors in Mem- ! phis the latter part of Ihe week.' -Mrs. Lee Hadley, who lias been quite ill the . past week, is very much improved.
