TUB INNOCENT BYSTANDERS I llflll T thousand Stockholders Ol sion of three members. Incidentally, I li amendment provides for a horizontal increase of the salaries of the members of the present hoard and fat salaries for those of the Beverage Commission, all representing a cost of more than twice us much as the maintenance expense of the present setup. But thai is not so essential as is lite fuel tlint while the people of the stale are demanding local control of the liquor trafllc and while Amendment No. ,'t purports to provide for that control, il really does nothing of the kind. To be sure, power is given to city councils and to hoards of supervisors to protest applications for liquor licenses and to request suspension or revocation of such licenses, but if the Beverage. Commission which, by the way, would be appointed by the Slate Board of Kquali/.alion, were to follow the same policy as its creator, there would be little prospect (hat recommendations of local authorities would prevail. It is within the record lo say thai sheriff's have protested the further licensing of drinking places in dill'erenl parts of (Instate, hut have found it dillicult, almost impossible, to secure action al Sacramento. We have no reason lo believe Ihnl the appointed Beverage Commission would follow n policy different from thai which has had Hie sanction of lhi! present authoritative body. The people of California want local control, bnl recommendations of local officialdom which must be confirmed by n political beverage board, nre not likely lo he of much value. Beading the provisions of the amendment proves the absurdity of (he contention thai it will, in fact, provide for control of the Irallic by local agencies, or Hint the (hiding of those agencies need have any weight with the hoard that is to be created. The Legislature will meet in January. It mfglil very well frame nil amendment lo take the control of Hie liquor Inilllc out of the hands of the slate and place il where il belongs, in the communities. Pending the presentation of such an amendment it would be unwise lo loud (he Constitution with the initialed one thai is now submitted. Voters who are concerned with the control of the liquor Irallic will do well lo vole "No" upon this amendment. TXVHNTV VKAKS AGO (Th« C4llfoml«n, thin d«l«. 1010) ' Headlines: W. K.

But the whole crowd Is loyal. It's us — tho flying personnel — against tho world." Tho stewardess said this with an air of conscious pride. She added, "It's a CBHO of every man for him- welf a I limes. You'll have to learn to take care of yourself and you never know whether you're to be stationed In Kalamazoo or Philadelphia or Reno." Kay was grateful for such bits of advice. She did a great deal of listening and observing during tho three weeks' training period prescribed for would-be stewardesses on tho Overland Airways. Hho learned her wiiy about airports In a dozen different states. .She learned to call hundreds of men by their first names.

Kay laughed, "No, I can't. You have so many amazing adventures!" "I saw our little Alice stepping out with that Chuck Jones—remember him? I'll never forget him as long as I live! Told mo I'd have to get rid of my 'excess baggage!' Tho conceited yellow-headed heartbreaker! Snapping his little book of telephone numbers In every girl's faoo from Oakland to Newark airport." Kay made no coment. The natty Mr. Chuck Jones only amused her. Since she had repulsed him, on her first flight, ho had treated her with cool disdain. Perhaps he thought that some day she would rush to him with tears In her eyes. Doris, however, was Indignant. "He'll only break Alice's heart!" sho prophesied. "And Allco deserves a better break than that. She's spent her life In a sickroom, looking after her mother. Alice doesn't know what men aro like.

The career of the richest maharajah Is more thrilling than anything In fiction Bromfleld over turned out. Originally, the ruler was a lowly barefoot shepherd boy, living In peasant simplicity.

Suddenly Alice said, "But you don't understand! t haven't a job and I don't want one. Chuck and I wore married today." Doris' chin dropped. "Well, of all things! Married!"

Evidently young Mr. Chuck Jones bad some qtiaHilos sho had overlooked. Ho and Alice had looked beyond tho honeymoon, wore soberly making plans, taking on responsibilities. ' Kay got up and crossed tho room to kiss Allco on both cheeks, "I wish you all the happiness In tho world!" Hho said. Surprisingly, Allco burst Into tears. "But I'll miss you HO! "You'll be way out there-—" Kay looked up, starlled. "What do you mean?" "Mnvpn't yoti heard? Don't you know? It was on the bulletin board. You've been appointed to a position In tho western division! You're lo go lo tho coast tomorrow!" Kay could scarcely believe tho words. Nevertheless she had a SOVIET MUSIC Editor«Tho Callfornlan: It is generally understood that propaganda Includes outwardly-political activities only. Teaching of "iRms," agitation In elections, organization of labor and the like seem to be channels through which propaganda Is carried on. Thus when It comes to tho Soviet propaganda an average American Individual takes for granted that as long as he does not seo the sinister figure of an atrociously bearded alien, with an arsenal of red literature, hidden In the folds of his voluminous trousers, arguing vehemently with an Immigration Inspector, there are no Soviet agents In tho land. Of course, Ignorance is bliss. And happy Is the man who does not know. To his benefit I refer tho recently discovered outlet for tho Soviet propaganda. Co-operating with tho certain lype of movie pro ducers this kind of radio activity will definitely cause harm. I was listening In on my radio. A chorus, probably consisting of refu gee-Russians. Ignorant of the ways of unscrupulous booklne agents, rendered two songs, ono of nlaintlve nature and the other of gay, dancing typo. Both songs, well known to mo since the days of my several years' stay In Russia proner In the early nineteen hundreds, are songs of olil Russia, Just as peculiar to her as her vodka and black broad. My indignation had no bounds when T heard the announcer of the program make the following introductions to each song: 1. "Now you will hear the song of the old Russia,' ind the chorus rendered solemnly Lho sad song. 2, "And now you wtl' dear the song of tho new (Soviet.
