No Substitute for Work J. J. Newberry, head of the national retailing chain system that bears his name, recently sent a message to store managers throughout the country which contains, 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 reward? than the one who only wants to \vork-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 j industry. f . * j "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 progress and grow than to spend their leisure time 1 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 sup- and hu- pvodnr- tion--which simply means there is no substitute for work. 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. Little Assembly Called Iron Lung Of Paralyzed Peace Organization By DewUt MacKenzie The United Nations' "little assembly"--the iron-lung devised by the Democracies to try to keep the breath of life in the veto- paralyzed peace organization-- be"an its permanent sit'ings at Lake Success yesterday, determined and I possibly hopeful.

White Russia and the Soviet bk- ,-aine-refuse to have a n y t h i n g to inoperative in the assembly. The establishment of the "little assembly" was an act of near- desperation. While this body can only formulate views and has no authority to inforce them, it can determine world opinion apart from the Russian bloc. The Russian bloc was urged to join the "little assembly" from the start, but refused. Despite this V. S. Chief Delegate Warren R. Austin said at yesterday's meeting: "It is our hope that the which are not here today do with it. The Democracii esiablished will soon join us." If the split continues between the Russian bloc and the democracies the "little assembly" may be the source of a tremendous development--the formation of a new league of nations which would comprise the democratic nations of the world.

Her green eyes sjrew 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!" Parn 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."

"Are you and your husband really planning to stay that long?" : 'Of course, why not? lv "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 the fact dren in her class had had similar "slight colds," as the teacher was constrained to assume, a he school authorities expect teachers to play it that way. because the school district's allotment of funds from the state depends upon the a t - ^ tendance record), and so J u d y was not sent home, as every p u p i l v . h o [ comes to school with any such manifestations should be, no matter whether the condition happens to be allergy or infantile paralysis.

' 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 ; daily "IM-.H-M : that once would have been left in the garage for days j ',! fm ; wamin ' · · ! 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 automobile can gratify. As more and more cars come onto the roads, the congestion will become more acute. To the traffic- authorities, the automobile may be a nuisance that 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.

"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 wcaind 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 y o u r husband one of these days when I'm up that way fishing." "Please do. Can't I give you a 'lift?" "I'm not making fun of you, He declined and stood in the road watching her gravely until the fog swept around him, swallowing him up. N EAR Clearview the breeze was strong and it seemed .to dissolve the mist a little so that Pam urged the jeep forward, suddenly arrxious to be near Brent.again. He was standing in the cottage doorway watching for her and he § rinned almost foolishly when ezebel chugged to an abrupt halt. "Worried about you,"'he confessed. "Tli is damnable fog." "You had reason to bt,." said Pam. "Some conceited fool did his utmost to deprive you of a cook and bottlewasher." She described her m i s a d v e n t u r e but Brent seemed more interested in Adam Marston than in her tilt^ with disaster. "Sounds kind of funny,--that business about his being a fisherman. I'm no Isaac Walton but all up here for stream fishing, not ocean. They leave that to the trawlers." . · ''Well,,that's what he .said and he'was certainly dressed for.the part. Besides he had a nice face," she added illogically. ' "What's that got to do with it?" "What 1 mean is, he looked trustworthy. If he was lying I'm sure he had a good reason-for 1 doing so." · . · Brent chuckled then swore. "Honestly, Pam, you have" the damndest way of convincing yourself about people. Of course, he had a reason! Everyone'hs reasons for their actions." "Not me." "What do you mean?" "I still don't know why I married you." He spanked her where it did the most good'then gathered her into his arms. "Well, ' if you don't know, it'.s damn well time you found out. I'll settle that question right now!" He kicked the cottage door'shut behind them. (To be continued) OWARD late af'.e:noon the i in fact I'll add my name to the bottom of your letter, but right now I'm worried over Zara- thustra.

"It isn't the police or the G men who are at fault --their hands are tied-it's the law makers and politicians. It's damned humiliating to think that the only way they can get a bird l i k e this Ricardo is on income tax evasion!" Pam tweaked his ear. "Better write to your congressman." He grabbed her hand and pulled her around to perch on his it I won't Pam. If more people sat down and let the government know what they thought maybe we'd get a little more action." 'Hear!

"He probably could," Pam said staunchly, "but he's more likely to be over by the main house snooping around. I'm, going to look for him." "So you can snoop too?" "Darling, believe rue, my motives aren't always ulterior." "Noooo?" Brent grinned. "Okay, I'm coming loo. I noticed a loose board over one of the windows when we were talking to Luisa Marel the other night." "You haven't forgotten her, have you?" Pam asked.

"I hope that's all," she said shortly, 'Personally I wouldn't trust youi sirenish Miss Marcl jn'-ound the corner." Brent husghed a bit smugly. He took a hammer m one hand and Pam's elbow in the other. "Come on, let's set over there." I N sunlight the main house at Clearv.ew wasn't quite so imposing yet it had a definite personality--it was austere and defiant. It wasn't simply a big house, vacant until its owner should arrive to repossess it during the summer months, but a structure that had witnessed and survived winier snow and Atlantic gales as well as the eccentricities of its builder. It was alive and its upper lavender-tinted panes were like sombre brooding eyes staring at them as they approached through the fog-coated grass. After calling to Zarathustra without result, Pam began making plaintive mewing sounds that were evidently intended to de- ceive him into thinking E seductive Cove Point member of his specie had come a-calling. Brent's dark brown eyes glinted with tolerant humor. "Don't forget to give, those meows a 'Down-east' accent." But Pain was irritated. "Zara really is getting spoiled. '-He knows perfectly well he's supposed to come when I call." nt/s o u t Latching soiijt of those fat field mice you inveigled him up here with." She poutea. "Looks like I'll have to Lell the cat." They walked, around to the birch-shaded side of Clearview whore the- had stood talking to Luisa Marel four nights cefore. Brent's glance went to the barricaded window and narrowed...-. "Say that board is loose. What's more it's beer pried up!" They both stared at the weathered boarc, jutting out six inches from its neighbors. As they eyed the opening, something behind-il moved and Pam screamed softly "It's Zara!" . , Like the Cheshire Cat the big Persian's head emerged first, followed by his enormous russet- colored body. He slithered through the gap, then.thudded gracefully to earth and trotted proudly over to Pam. In his mouth he carried, as though it were a particularly vicious rat which he had caught only after a prolonged battle,' a woman's ochra pig-skin glove. He deposited il somewhat haughtily at his mistress' feet. Pam picked it up. "It looks like your Miss.MareJ was doing a little exploring as well as painting. I thought she looked toe urbane to be .telling the truth. She no more had a water color in that porte · nianteaii than the man in the moon!" "You're jumping to conclusions," Brent protested. "Maybe it isn't her glove. Maybe a summer guest left it. Maybe Zara carried it in there." · . · ; "Make up your mind." Pam stared down her short nose 'at him. ''Well, you don't know .ihe broke in," he argued. "No, but there's one way to find out." Pr.m moved toward the window. (To be continued) '
