Not all Ihe credit for Ibis progress can given lo ils residents, slnle with ndvnnlnge.s lurid and niinernl resources, but il is due to the industry, enterprise and well directed effort of ils cili/.ens llml these natural advantages have been enhanced. Into Ihe development of Ihe stale have been compressed centuries of human experience, so thai while the eighty-six years since ils admission lo Ihe I'nion seem short II ey represent Ihe ripeness of civili/.alion applied to Ihe western Intnlier of the nation. C.ili/ens inny well speculate on whal Ihe next eighty-six years may bring. C.nlifornm, like oilier plnces, will reflect the progress or the retrogression of humnn affairs.

Htovo had never dlscuHHOd the htory with Judith, but tho rumor had per- Hinted, drlftinar from one to another, and Mteadlly gaining proportions wlf.h each new tolllnR. AH Steve looked at Toby now, a riur;«tlon formed In hln mind: In nil the. time they had known Toby, why hnd he never Invited them to hl« apartment? Ho had vlalted the Benin countleBs ovenlnRH; and often, like this, he would Join them In a visit o Judith and Sieve. Yet none had ever boon asked to be. Toby's (ruent. Indeed, not even Bob Rent knew In*!, where Toby Lynch lived.

They xvarmed tho loqiiaclottH Tohy Into a running fire of comment, and succeeded In mellowing the Benin. But Stove drank little, and Judith always limited herself lo one cocktail. Vet Virginia made no move to leave, and Judith realized that she Intended to keep herself and Toby and Hob there until Steve Fowler bad departed. Plainly Virginia wuHti't going to leave Judith alone with htm again. At length she set down her glnsn and got up. Hteve looked reliever!— but he, wan to suffer disappointment. "Judith," she said, "let's you and I go over to mv apartment and scare up Home sandwiches. These males look hungry, nnd T can tell they're dying to discuss the baseball scores." Tohy grinned at Bob. "The perfect wife." he complimented. "Flow does u mug like you to keep her?" Virginia met this with n plean- MIH laugh, find steered Judith out the door. \Vlien they hud gone. Boh Hiild, "I don't keep her,-Toby. She keeps herself. Thai's one of the advantages of having n wife .who's self-supporting. She knows she can leave any lime she wants to. So she doesn't leave, and she's perfectly hnppy." Toby laughed. ITo turned to Steve "I've been expecting you and Judllh to take, the leap any day now. Hteve." i noughtfiilly Steve twisted his pipe In fingers. "Well . . . you see, 1 don't ugren with Mob exactly. I suppose .[udlth and I could marry If r were willing to have bur keep her job.

Millions of dollars are spent every year in foreign countries by the wandering sons and daughters of Uncle Sam. much to Ihe cultural benefit of themselves and lo Ihe financial advantage of the countries they visit. The revenue from American lourisl traffic in I 1 'ranee, for example, is so considerable thai it is a cal ! culable financial purl of its national ceo- i nomics. And Paris as n caterer lo thai Irnf- i tic tries always In net to please Ihe cus , lomer. Hut Americans are nwakcniiiH lo the ro- ll.antic, scenic and historic values of Iheir : own land. Kadi year sees an increasing number who prefer the comforts of (ravel m the I'liited Slates, Ihe advantage of speaking their own language and paying in Iheir own kind of coin, and seeing nl first luuul Ihe wonders and famous spots that virtually \ lie nt their own doors. This tendency lo "see America first" is re vcnled in reports from transportation coin panics, including railroad, steamship and air lines. According to those announcements this is a record year in passenger traffic. Many of the railroads nre carrying Ihe larg esl number of passengers in more than a decade. Ocean travel is only limited by Ihe ship tonnage, bill Ihe companies report Ibc best year since ID.'K). while coastal and cruise lours have made new records since 1U27.

Air lines, of course, have an increasing de inund, but tourism has not yd made this its usual method. Ils increase is the de mand for speed, and the call of business. After all, why should not Americans see their own country first? The scenery of Ihe United Slates ranks with any in Hit* world, and in some examples stands alone.

"I had Ihnl Idea, too," Bob said, grinning. "Hut Virginia convinced me that I WHS wrong. I've always been a weak-willed person!" "There's nothing wrong with both the wlfo and the husband working." Toby Insisted. "It's the solution lo modern conditions, fir at least, It's been the solution for thn past five or six years. This guy I>nn Cupid never heard of a depression. Ho just goes nround raising the devil an If there were no such thing IIH a salary cut. f think Bob's dead right, Hteve." He paused and looked at Fowler. "You can carry pride too far, you know," "It's not entirely a matter of pride," Steve told him. "I'vo never believed a married woman should work—not whon there are thousands of single girls looking for jobs and not finding them." "That's a specious argument," Bob put In. "Oh, I'll grant that there arc some married women working In offices—married women who could got along on their husband's salary. But mostly they're women who are so well trained that their Job couldn't filled by the average single girl looking for a job. Let's take Virginia and myself nn an example. Suppose I hadn't married her? She'd be working at her Job, Just as sho IB now. So what difference does It make to tho unemployment situation whether we're married or unmarried? No, Hteve. ... I think you're trying to work up a logical, economic argument to justify your pride." Steve smiled slowly. "Maybe BO." "Well," put In Toby, twisting Impatiently In his chair, "I'd even go one step further than Hob." "What do you mean?" asked Steve raising his head. "Hob and Virginia took a big chance when they married." "With duo respect to Bob, I can't BOO thai they did," Htevo argued. "Both have jobs. Klther job would probably support tho two of them, If they were careful and willing to make sacrifices. I can't, see that they took any chance at all." "You're wrong, Steve," said Toby, rising and walking toward the box of cigarettes on the llttlo table. Carefully ho took one up, lighted It. "Look here. It's a well known fact about human nature that people want what thoy can't have. Suppose Bob and Virginia had wanted to marry only because It looked as If they couldn't? Then discovered afterward they'd made tho wrong move. That, would have been bad, wouldn't It?" "I'm afraid I'm not following you very well." Steve said. "There's only one sensible solution to the problem of two people In lovo who can't marry for economic reasons." Toby Lynch went on. "They should simply share an apartment together, spill all expenses. Then when business returns to normal, when all the salary outs are restored and the birds start singing In the trees, these two can look at each other and decide whether they should really marry." "It's a nice Idea for the man,," Stove said quietly. "But what happens to the girl? I know It's a very modern world—but most people still think a lot of tho marriage rite." Toby snorted. "You'd be surprised nt thn number of such young couples right In this town today. And as for tho girl—anv woman who's ronlly In love Is willing to make the sacrifice. I tell you, Steve. It's the only wnv. You won't lose anv of your renl friends, nnd tho others don't matter. That's Ihe thing for you and Judith—" Toby Lynch did not finish. Tn what seemed to bo one uncontrollable movement. Steve Kowler leaped from his chair and knocked Toby sprawling ngnlnst the table. (Continued Tomorrow) *(By O. 0. MclNTYBE) N EW YORK, Sept. 8.—Johnny J^ttr- rar Is a refutation of the o(d saw: "You cannot make a business man out of a poet." Only a few years ago he was strumming his lyre, a delicately pale, blue-eyed dreamer . who had come down from the green hills at Vermont to the big city. Today as one of the heads of a publishing house, he Is a ruddy and robust figure In one of the most highly competitive fields of merchandising. If he turns out a sonnet these days It Is solely for his own amusement. His time .Is spent at a desk surrounded by secretaries and push buttons, His partner Is Stanley Rinehart, son of the authoress Mary Roberts Rinehart. The story goes that the capitalist Me«smore Kendall, a bibliophile on the side, backed the young men In their quixotic adventuring. The old timers In the business looked upon It aa a costly whim. From the jump of tho gun they succeeded. But the big splash was when they decided to publish tho ponderous "Anthony Adverse" which had been knocking around with no takers for some time. It proved the book sensation of the decade and made a fortunes^ Sho Is a bobbing old lady, with Jot bonnet and fichu, who often steps out of a plushy cocktail bar near tho Waldorf Just as I go astroll with tho dog.

' ^ Much of the successful exploitation of the Zlegfeld film was due to Bernard Sobel who literally followed the showman beyond tho grave with his ballyhoo. Sobel was a former professor of English at Purdue and la likely the most erudite of the public relations grenadiers. Zlegfeld engaged him as a press agent during the successful years for tno Follies nnd other productions. City editors say he turns In the most precise English of all the P. A.s. There are usually disputes as to the origin of Zlegfeld's celebrated tag line which read. "Glorifying tho American Girl." It was credited to many, Including the producer him self. As a matter of fact, Zlegfcld told mo that Walter Klngsley, when press agent for vaudeville, suggested tho line for H huge electric sign on Broadway for the Jellies. It was used thereafter In all Zlegfeld • productions—a simple, obvious dec- aration, yet advertising men say one of the most compelling ever hatched. • . New York hotels have almost lifted tho ban on cooking In rooms. Until a few years ago, It was done surreptitiously with eviction often a penalty. The old Waldorf had a special sniffer to roam the corridors. But the boom time de luxe hotels Installed kitchenettes and refrigeration In oven small suites and single rooms. And the side street hotels could not, compote with the rooming houses permitting cooking. Anyway, most hotels realize their dining: rooms are passe. They Just open DM a gesture. Those- who do not cook ID rooms patronize the Cluster of cafeterias niched In all big Inns. The Ansonla, I believe, was the flrat big hotel to Install kitchenettes. And the hotel "detective or hous* dick Is now confined to the first floor to watch for lobby sharperi. sneak thieves and "wo boys." Their offlclousness In key hole snooping In the past Involved hotels In damage suits. Caesar Rltz rightly conducted his hotels on the assumption everyone who signed the register was respectable. If they proved otherwise, ho got rid of them by hiking the tariff. As a result, he rarely had a suit or scandal. The most generously squired lady In the current scene Is the darkly fexotlc and now matured Llbby Hoi- man. When she visits the night clubs she Is often accompanied by from a halt down to a dozen male escorts. No other ladles, as a rule. It Is all somewhat a musical comedy scene.

Kvory newsman In Washington has received upwards of eight million words of authoritative annlysoH of the gathering, which Is officially Huhhondod as "second congress on liu-ge diims."

No freedom should bo moro firmly guarded than academic liberty; It Is not less important than unshackled press or speech. Who are patriotic zealots to say what Is truth and what Is not truth? A democracy Is founded upon the principle of freedom to study, to discuss and to think. Tho schools are the very foundation stone of democracy. If Communism, at which these oath laws are aimed. Is wrong, then freedom of discussion will expose It. But suppression of discussion will never defeat it. They are ignorant of history who think that these vast, welling social movements of which Communism is one can be stopped by mere laws. PL J\L Bakersfleld, Sept. 6, 1936. PARKING ORDINANCE Editor The Californlan: The ancient and honorable problem of solving tho question of how to fit a round peg in a square hole IB child's play compared to the present day Bakersfleld problem of how to house at night 15,000 automobiles in a 10,000 automobile garage capacity. Away back la. tho horse and buggy ago of Bakersfleld when there was loss than 'one mile of paved streets In Bakersfleld our wise officials passed an ordinance for tho protection of our fellow motorists, to the effect thnt you should not park your automobile on a paved street at night. Far be It from me to advocate any violation of our local laws. Today Bakersfleld Is blessed with miles and miles of paved streets, wide enough to permit parking on each side and leave sufficient space for three lanes of automobiles. But the old ordinance Is In force and, of course, must bo obeyed, until our present city authorities realize thnt Bakersfleld IH no longer a provincial city nnd needs up-to-date automobile parking regu latlons. Our present parking laws aro, not citizens are compelled to go to work at all hours of the night and find It very Inconvenient to have to wait for a'garage attendant to pry their car out of a garage. The only plausible excuse for the present automobile parking regulations Is that It may interfere with the efficiency of our street sweeping- department in Us efforts to remove some accumulated debris lodged at tho curb of a street. Let us hope that our present up- to-the-minute city council will amend our automobile parking curfew law, so that the owners will not be compelled to drag their automobiles Into the basement or park them on the roof of their homes. I presume t will be censured by critics for venturing these suggestions. My only consolation Is If may start some thing. JIM EGAN. Bakersfleld, September 7, 1936. DESTROY THE CATS Editor The Callfornlan: I quite agree with S. P. H. M. in regard to the dumping of kittens near her home. It is a most pernicious, Inhuman and disgraceful practice for anyone to be guilty of and call themselves civilized. A moro merciful plan would be to buy a small bottle of chloroform and put them out of tho way when only a fow days old. 1 do not like cats, as 1 know what a menace they are to bird life—destroying more birds than I care to think about. These half-starved kittens carry disease nnd yet mothers allow their children to hug and carry them in their arms, and allow them in the house. There Is no Bound more horrlbln thnt the yowling and screeching of cats under your window at night, when you nre trying to sleep. MRS. H. M. P. Bakersfleld, September 3, 1938. (By FREDERIC J.

When did farmers' co-oper- , atlvcs become popular?—L. W. J. A. The first boom in the farmer- co-operative movement came during: tho depression of 1872-1877. The Grange (Patrons of Husbandry), th« . oldest of the general farm organtza-.,, lions, had been formed In 18«7. It was the Intention of Its founders that It be a fraternal order, but many farmers who found themselves caught in the depression following the panic of 1R73 turned to tho new organiwvtlon In an effort to lessen the distressing consequences of economic, maladjustments. In 187S, 8667 local granges were organized and the following year, H.941. - v ) nui again MI up i» rcpon tho county Jail be Doti'otlvos Investigating WPA Showmanship can turn a simple i workers re von 1 thoy "have \moov-1 mo«l Into n royal feast.
