No Substitute for Work J. J. Newberry, head of the national retailing chain j system that bears his name, recently sent a message j to store managers throughout the country which con-' tains, in simple, forceful language, fundamental truths that apply to all of us. He wrote: "The person who makes his job the most important thing in his life, other than taking care of his family, and who has common sense and intelligence to apply to his job, should be entitled to greater success and rewards than the one who only wants to work-eight hours a day, five days a week. "Everything in the way of farming, mining, manufacturing and distribution must keep on expanding to give work to the increased population and to produce and distribute the larger requirement of more people. This will call for more and more leaders of industry. ,. "Those leaders will be the people who have such enthusiasm for their work they would rather stay on the job and see that which they are interested in 1 progress' and grow than to -spend their leisure time at less important pursuits. "When you hear bright young people talking about working only forty hours a week who expect equal compensation with the man who loves his work enough to put the necessary time in to make his company grow, then you owe it to such a person to tell him how wrong his ideas are." This is an old-fashioned doctrine. It is in opposition to the new and engaging theories of the more advanced social and economic planners. But, whether we like it or not, it is a theory which is solidly supported by centuries of human experience--and hu- Little Assembly Called Iron Lung Of Paralyzed Peace Organization By Dewitt MacKeiizie The United Nations' "little assembly"-the iron-lung devised by the Democracies to try to keep the breath of life in tho veto- paralyzed peace organization- be- 'an its permanent sit'ings at Lake Success yesterday, determined and j possibly hopeful.

A genius may find an easy short cut to success, but the number of geniuses at large at any time can almost be counted on one man's fingers. Mr. Newberry has restated truths which, if abandoned and forgotten, will lead to individual tragedy and failure --and to deterioration of the strength and pride of the country. Cars of the future, engineers say, will have two gas tanks, one for high-test gasoline, one for the ordinary variety. High-test gas is useful chiefly for conditions of strain, such as climbing a hill. It is not needed for ordinary driving. This could be, but it will take more than an extra tank-of gas to get the average car through the hard clays to come before the new one arrives. 10,000 Miles a Year (Rochester Democrat Chronicle) , If figures quoted by the New York City Automobile Club are typical for the nation, they help to explain why congestion in city streets and travel on country highways are greater than before the war ^ ran ^ r ^ goWen uilo of notwithstanding the fewer cars in service, ine iig- hygiene applies to school children are riot right, seeing nobody knows why some individuals are allergic and others are not.

Her green eyes grew enormous as she watched the man materialize out of the background of sand and fog. Then she began to laugh. It was a strange choking little laugh compounded of fear and relief at her narrow escape. A gloved hand came through the window, grasped her shoulder and shook her sternly. "Here now, none of that!" Pam looked at him then. "I'm sorry. I suppose I really am glad to see you. I just haven't gotten over the shock of having that car bear down on me." The man's eyes were gray with dark brown flecks in them. They could be kind or reflective or, as Pam was to learn later, icy with disgust and were gentle. hatred. Now they very auspicious beginning and i I've got nine months to go. 1 ' The genial face above the dark green turtle neck sweater became grave. "Are you and your husband realty planning to sUy that long?" "Of course, why not?" "Well, the winters up here are pretty severe for one thing. I certainly wouldn't advise sticking it out." "I've heard that old saw about Maine having just two seasons-winter and July--" Pam admitted, "but it doesn't faze me. Our cottage is built of field stone and is very comfortable. I don't think I'll mind hibernating in it a bit." He rubbed his hand across the stubble on his chin. "Let's hope it works out, Mrs. Carter." Pam frowned slightly. His tone and concern in her affairs was puzzling. "Look," she said, "you seem to know all about me but you haven't i i i e i e cire probabh ;is in America t h a n Looking I n i o - r e - t ' n g items t a k e n I r o m 1I" iiles i 1 i h e Daily Mf-ssi-ng'?r 1C. l!o and 50"y?zu-s- ago ' e?ed ,. clas? no mo ,. c and no i e ! than it applies to teachers, executives, physicians, oenn-is. m n - i s . salespeople, customers. effect. ures indicate that whereas the average car was driven -, -: only 5,000 miles a year before the war, now it sees 10,000 miles of service each. No doubt there are a number of reasons for this increase in use. Modern cars are built for harder service than those of old makes. Tires have longer life. Ten thousand miles to a modern car is little more than a "breaking in" mileage. Another factor is prosperity, which means more jobs at good wages and more money to be spent on automobile travel, j 1°"^ ^ Finally, with more families moving away from t h e ; U I , h o u t am- centers of cities, the automobile has become a ncces- ; A TM'- T sity in carrying wage earners to work, children to school, housewives to town, all of which piles up the miles. Clearly reflecting all this increased travel is the increasing congestion which has become an urgent problem in cities and towns all over the country. Cars that once would have been left in the garage for days at a time now are in service every day. Car owners that used to live close to home all the year around., ^ now-have acquired a taste for travel, which the auto- j " m,,». mobile can gratify. ' ( .,.^ fa , q ,'eno?n As more and more cars come onto the roads, thej f o ' 0 f i nvik ,, s ,-n congestion will become more acute. To the traffic j ' u ^ v TM 11 ;:'^'' authorities, the automobile may be a nuisance that i kno ;^' So f ;,/'., clutters up the streets and causes accidents. But it is here to stay and short-shrift measures must give way to long-range plans that really fit the automobile into the new conditions which it has helped to create.

"Jeeps were invented foi ordeals like this; I don't think we'll have much trouble." He stepped back, studied the car's position then reached over to.the steering wheel. "Just cramp her around and go into reverse. I'll pull." In a few minutes Jezebel was back on the road with only a dented fender as a wound stripe, Pam sighed with gratitude. "Fate must have brought you here, Mr. Marston. I don't know how I can possibly thank you." "It was a pleasure. Maybe I'll drop in on you and your husband one of these days when I'm up that way fishing." "Please do. Can't I give you a lift?" !
