McINTYRB) YOHK, Sept. 26,— Thoughts AT OUR DOOR TOO IT 15 Committee, for the Nation, of which James IT.

Ihal question it adds another one, "Why could the United Stales, instead of building al a correspondingly yearly average, of 700,000 (population considered), actually construct only 70,000 dwellings?" And again, "Why could England, with only » small fraction of our national wealth, construct by private enterprise ten limes as much low cost housing as the United Slates did?" The committee, answering ils own question, says: " England, with her new monetary policy, that low interest rates on long term capital for housing, largely controls rental costs, desire for home ownership and building activity." And in connection with its program designed lo stimulate building, the committee chairman, in a letter lo President lloose- velt, says: "England's hanking experts have, made clear that during the last live years upon Ihe gold standard basis il would re- lory of Ihe nation. One of them finds that if the percentage of voles in the three. Maine Congressional districts are continued throughout Ihe. country in November, it will unquestionably mean the election of Mr. l.andon. Others accepting the Literary Digest figures as Ihe basis of their claims, give Ihe Kansas Governor an overwhelming electoral vole. And so as the result, perhaps, of wishful thinking, the choice of the Republican nominee is all but an acaynp- lished fact. Maybe so, but here is something for the. prophets to consider.

But Kay wan lonaly there, terribly lonely. Her early lesaona In aelf-dlaclpltnn served her well, Hho tried to organ- ze her life around her job. During the day there waa a four-hour run .0 the Oakland airport and a four- hour return. Somotimea, when the ahlft changed, Hho apont tho night on the bay. But In Reno, where moat of her lelauro hours wore apent, who rented a little furnished apartment. did not meet Ted Graham, as she hu<l so fondly hoped to do. She read nbout him In the nowspaperH and followed tho routine of tho trans-Pacific flight, day by day, eastbound, westbound. " Sho knew Ted's,approximate portion every day of the week—Honolulu, Midway, Guam, Manila. But on the days when he won In port, at Ship Harbor, he usually went to his ranch In tho San Carlos valley to rest. Hotween such rest periods he waa away from the homo port for throe weeks at a time. Kay had never been on tho bay when hla ship carnu In. As the weeks passed she became Increasingly absorbed In her work. Hho felt like a veteran now. At flrat she had missed tho bustling activity of the Central Airport. At the flying field In Reno there wero not nearly as many planes coming and going and the local passenger traffic was not heavy. Kay usually drove out to the airport with the pilot who was taking the plane down to the Pacific. It was a long drive, leaving "the biggest little city In the world" behind and following a pavnd highway through green fields that had boon salvaged from tho dosort. In tho distance wero tho snow-capped peaks Of tho Sierra Nevada range. The wealtoourid plane appeared flrat as a tiny .speck on the horizon. It alwaya reminded Kay of her flrat trip byatr throusrtfr'tiie. ,vast spaces of tho west. ' ' But those vast spaces only increased her feeling of loneliness. She began to feel a nbatalgla for the friends she had loft behind, the scenes that had been familiar since her childhood. Kay needed tho warmth of human sympathy. There wero times when she. would fling heraelf face down on her bed and He there, very quiet, for hours at a time. One night she let the teara come and sobbed out this feeling of loneliness and desertion. Then ahe read In a.nowapaper that Ted araham'a ahtp waa due In San Francisco bay day. Again, deep In her heart, Kay felt a kindling of hopei If she could only see htm again 1 Tho two-room apartment, with Its chintz trlmmlnga, seemed Intolerably lonely. Kay got up, put on an evening frock, and flung a cloak over her .arm. Tho night was cool, as were all nights at this altitude. Her adventurous spirit waa stirring. She took a taxi and rode to tho Marlln dude ranch which she knew was a rendezvous for members of tho air corps. If there were any aviation figures In town, she would find them there. But at flrat glance, Kay saw no one she knew. She aat down at the roulette table and bought some countera. Hho 'had no Idea how the wheel operated, but she waa game for anything tonight. She lost one stack of chips and bought another. She waa placing a counter on the red marker when a hand caught her.elbow and cased It gently back. . "Play 10 green," a voice said and then ahe heard a gay laugh. Kay turned and saw a man standing behind her, a handsome youth of about 28. Ho had dark brown hair and blue eyes. He had also, Kay noted, had several cocktails. She did not recognize him, but hla face waa tanned with tho leathery sort of tan by. which ono comes to recognize a man as an Inveterate flyer. Perhaps she had mot him somewhere. There was no denying, either, that ho had a gay, Impudent srnlle that intrigued her! » # • She amlled, but played the red again and lost. Number 10 green won ond tho young man who waa which does not disturb business, lh<1 l'rfHi«l«nl is a good U lo 5 favorite. If lishes what formerly required a raising of inleresl rales with a stilling effect upon business activity and new enterprise." The managed currency (bids favor both in Kngland and in Ihe United Stales and capital should be equally attracted In'rc to the building of dwellings as ofl'ering investment that will insure fair return. Certainly there is no sound reason why Kngland should in a five-year period have a higher building record than Ihe United Stales. Evidently we need the kind of campaign which the Committee for the Nation has inaugurated, and in Unit connneclion, anil bringing Ihe matter home, we are wondering why Dakcrsllcld men of all'airs should not co-operate in a huilding program here which will .supply the need of wage-earnei'8 for residences. While (here is active building in this city, generally the homes that are constructed are designed for their owners and there is no concerted movement to create rental homes for those who desire them. II would seem Uinl here is a Held of activity thai illicit well be occupied by our civic bodies which naturally desire to serve the best interests of Ihe people they represent, l.cadcrship could undoubtedly point Ihe way lo Ihe creation of a building corporation whifh, in turn, could make a substantial contribution lo the solution of our housing problem. Such corporation would not only find profitable investment for capital through such a program, but would render a very real service to Ihe community in which they arc so deeply interested. W PACIFIC AIR TKAVKI. 1111,1'', most of Ihe world is t 1 in avoiding or preparing for war, it is lo observe thai not all the in- verted making them instruments of destruction. On October II the transpacific air route from C.alifornia to the Orient will be opened for passenger tralllc. And just as this is announced, Germany is experimenting on an nil-plant- passenger service across the Atlantic, making Azores a halting place. Already there are airplane routes over long distances, but these are mainly Overland, such as those between Kngland and Australia and from Ihe Atlantic to the Pacific coast in the United Stales. The problem of ocean travel by air has been lluil of establishing stations between the starting point and the terminal. Along the Pacific route landing places they are correct what is going lo change Ihe situation between now and '10 days hence? HusincsH is admittedly continuing to climb; its volume gains with each succeeding month; opinions are expressed that recovery is already lieuc and Senator Hoper of Ihe Department of Commerce, conservative in his statements, gives il as his conclusion thai "We have entered not a temporary but a long term upward swing and are approaching one of the greatest eras in American history." II is dilllcull to create a whirlwind of opposition lo an administration which came into power at the depth of Ihe depression and which has seen, within the last 18 months, a recovery that is little less than marvelous. The man on Ihe farm, the wage earner, llu> small business man and a good many of Ihem not so small are likely lo seriously consider whether this Is a good lime lo change adminislralivc leaders. If human nature runs true to form many of Ihem will conclude that il is not. It AN DOM NOTES What is wrong with some of our metropolitan newspapers? Is crime the only thing worth featuring? Is it of sufficient consequence to be given front page position day by day? And is such policy in response lo Ihe demands of Ihe muling public? laiiily not. and Ihe wonder is that intelligent journalists should reach the conclusion Hint they are meeting a public want by constantly playing up the crime stories of the hour, One paper has been carrying Ihe story of an ex-convict who was recently liberated from a federal prison. Obviously the pris- is "sore" because the place in which he was conllned was conducted as a prison in the institution met with disapproval of the former prisoner. He shed tears over Ihe fact that there was a fellow prisoner who was serving Uf> years for robbing a post olllce when he only got $1,21$ as Ihe result of Ihe robbery. Perhaps that is good reading for many people. A publisher must think so or the paper would not give it space. Hut we wonder if it does find favor with any considerable number of rentiers. If it does, il is just too bad for society and in any event it wovild seem that a home newspaper might well be tilling its columns with more instructive and more suitable material, material selected for Ihe benelll of all ils readers, and spccitl- (By PAUL MALLON—Copyright 1936) while strolling; Add dead-panned socialites: William Rhlnelander Stewart and Jay O'Brien.

And the fact that our party system Is extra legal, tip matter how well established In our' national life, nakes changing it much easier. That the Lemke party does not answer the half-formulated desires of, ;hoso who havo been vacillating between one-party and Uie other in the lost few national elections is, evident from : the Literary Digest poll. But it Is entirely possible that some other division may result, One beneficial result In government may be hazarded if such a realignment does take place.

They wero men of experience who should have known bettor, of course; within a few years there was a fundamental division between the support era of centralized and decentralized Kovernment. They called themselves Federallsta and WhlRB. There was a reahaplnR of Issues shortly before the Civil War and Lincoln's administration, and once aRaln there was a strong party division.
