And a conference of labor and civic organizations in New York has lent to Congress its conclusion that tho machinery now provided in the bill is "complex, cumbersome and unworkable," All this is indicative of the dim- cullies which Congress must overcome before ii can whip the Black- Country measure into such shape as to be acceptable to these various views. The full task may he impossible, The full (ask may be impossible. But it is not impossible that under pressure a compromise will be reached. In that case, (he best to be hoped is that such compromise will not ignore essential practicalities. 6ANZAI! (HOORAV) O FOR PEACE «^L \ Split Second Braking Physiology jmil psychology must both hare roles in such tests as those made at the University of Indiana ito discover' the length of time' between sound and solar signals and the engaging of brakes, but In the case of the policeman's whistle psychology is certainly the leading factor. The fact that a driver's ear responds to a Whistle faster than the eye to a red light involves such Items as proximity ol ths law, thought of a traffic court fine, and a possible personal pride. In addition there is the physolo- gical item of nerve shock, which a harsh sound produces in greater desres than a pretty color. A red light Is delightfully impersonal— in fact, so much so a few drivers consider It is always a warning to other drivers only; but a policeman's whistle bore_s into one's in- (lividun'ism pitilessly and is in- stantineously translated into "I Save Us From These! The following is a letter written to the New York Sun: To (he Editor of The Sun—Sir: We do not want any wage and hour bill. "We do not want the Wagner act. We do not want the WPA. We do not want Sister Perkins. We do not want the C. I. O. We do not want a Justice Black. We do not want any White Rabbits. We do not want a labor board. We do not want any fireside chats. We do not want the Guffey Act. We do not want any Bit-down strikes. We do not want P. M. G. Farley. We do not want "any alphabet soup. We do not want any K. K. K. We do not want any Communist dope. We do not want our telegrams read. We do not want our pockets picked. The fastest brakingtwith red signal in the Indiana tests was three- tenths of a second; with sound signal two-fiflhs. The time factor is thus altogether satisfactory if a motorist is driving decently, but so many uf the 700 tested were sliy of the T.-hiEtle that tile record stands We do not want marionettes In Congress. We do not want a pump that must be primed all the time. We do not want our grandchildren robbed. We do not want any F. D .R. What we do want is another new deal that will discard all the cards that are stacked up against us in Washington. Then confidence will be restored and prosperity will return.

Some cities employ bells in conjunction with light signals. Whistles would do the job Letter. Wages-Hours Legislation Reports from Washington have it that the wages-hours measures will he pushed to the head of the legislative program. The '"bill was passed by the Senate at the previous session and now rests in the Rules committee of the House, which has so far refused to report it out. A movement has been begun among the House membership to force the committee to release it. Doubtless this will succeed, for there is general agreement that the. issue presented in this measure should he brought to settlement. But it is evident that the bill, as it non- stands, is not likely to receive full approval by Congress, of all, involved in it is the question of differences in labor conditions be- Lween the North and the South. The Senate passed the existing measure by a two-lo-one vote. Every Republican vote was cast against it except two. Fifteen Democratic senators also voted against it. TPI. of these were from :ha Solid South. Cost Of Living The Department of Labor's figures show that living costs are now some It per cent 'higher than they were in June, 1833, shortly after the Roosevelt Administration took office. It Is possible that some part or this increase is the result of monopolistic practices, and the Federal Trade Commission-is the proper agency to discover how much and to take action to halt such methods. But it would be a totally unrealistic picture of the course of events during the last four years which failed to take account of the extent to which tbe policies of the Administration itself have been responsible for rising prices. The Administration devalued the dollar, specifically for the purpose of raising prices. It restricted farm production, with the same end in view. It has worked consistently to increase wages and to shorten hours, two, factors which necessarily enter into the makiii;.: of prices. And it has been forced by its own large expenditures to increase taxes. It would he astonishing, in these circum- On Being Misunderstood I think it was Emerson who once wrote that to be misunderstood was to be great. Perhaps ! But I can see no requisite to greatness in such a situation. A large number of great men and women are undoubtedly misunderstood, but that is not why they are great. To be misunderstood certainly is to be quite unhappy in one's heart. There is an element of fineness and superbness of character, however, where one rises above misunderstanding and goes on his way with linafeated courage. No one of independent thoughf;and high character can afford to pay attention to the misunderstanding of those whose plane of thought and action is below his own. We have to stand on even ground with another — where all his faults and virtues are well displayed — before we can honestly a_nd accurately take the measure of his mind. What we read about a person, in the public print, or gather by hearsay, is no criterion by which we may form a judgment of his worth and work. A man is off display when he is with his friend. Misunderstandings dissolve when two hearts open and two minds flow their streams of thought back and forth. Too many people worry about being misunderstood. Many a tragedy has happened because of this. Usually the. one misunderstood is far ahead, and those who misunderstand often catch up — and behold they understand ! The late Ramsay MacDonald, former Premier of Great Britain, was one of the most misunderstood men of his, time — but he patiently and courageously kept to his ideals. ' Un- hapny and sad over the desertion of former friends and coworkers, he kept right on working for what he believed to be the right. A hijrh example of stalwart statesmanship he has left behind him that will grow in lustre with the passing years. How unfortunate that the world has to catch un with a great character only after his active spirit is stilled Your FAMILY NAMES .Their Origin and Meaning in death. If you are aggressive and alert, indencivlent. and stout of heart, you are bound to be misunderstood. Let it not disturb your peace of mind, nor your determination to stand alone— if need be. stances, if the cost of living had not mounted.—New Vork Times The Horoscope (Copyright, 1937, by Hie McClure Newspaper Syndlcite) Monday, November 29, 1937 Adverse planetary aspects dominate today, according to astrology. It Is a date read as most menacing The argument between North aihl South on wage differentials usually lets nowhere as mere logic-chop- ling, because the two sides begin vlth different premises. The South •lays Its cost of living Is lower. The North retorts that the "standard," not the "cost," of living is lower. The South Insists Its labor 's loss efficient; the North replies 'bat if tbe South paid higher wages, ' .'t would get more efficient labor. Along with this obvious reason for <!xpecllng vigorous opposition is labor's objection to methods provided for determining the manifold complex questions sure to arlte In making »dju«lmcnl« between in- imlrlen «* well an between «cc- Hunting Accidents The men and boys start off on their hunting expeditions with hright faces and elastic steps. A few of them come back the victims of sad shooting accidents. The carelessly held weapon while the hunter was climbing a fence, the man who shoots when he sees the bushes move, are two of the causes for these tragic events. Firearms are to be viewed with respest, not to Bay fear, for the deadly work they can do in a careless moment. The gun that Isn't loaded is said to be the most dangerous one. Too many men play with (hem as If they were toy pis- tola. The hunter ahould have a clear v)«w of the object he l» shooting at before he pulls the trigger. to speculators.

Washington, s Nov. 27 (yp) — Theodore Waiters, 61, drat 'Assistant Secretary of the Interior, died today at the Naval hospital.

Tucker is old English for "fuller," and is supposed to have originated from the ancient Devonshire provincialism, Toke or Tuck, meaning "to beat in a fulling-mil In some places fulling-mills are still called 'tuck-mills." The trade was so designated in the seventeenth century. Betch worth Castle in Somersetshire, now a picturesque ruin, was one home of this family in England. Immigrant ancestors and progen- ilers of the Tucker family in America include: Robert Tucker, who came from Milton, Kent, England to Weymouth, Massachusetts, moving to Dorchester, and later to Milton, 1662, (married Elizabeth Allen; Captain Mose Tucker, grandson of Morris Tucker of. Salisbury, Massachusetts, and who was founder of the New Hampshire branch, (married Joanne Dow of Haverhill, Massachusetts, and died Jn 1769); Daniel Tucker settled in Virginia during the year 3616; St. Gwrge Tucker, who was born in the West Indies, came to Virginia in 1771, founded the \Villiamsburg branch, and served in the Revolution with tho rank of Colonel. The following are a few of the Tuckers in prominence today: Beverley Dandridge, Jr., clergyman, educator; Beverly Randolph, neur- oiogist; Everett Brackin, president) of Austin College in Sherman, Texas; Prank, publicist, editor; Henry St. George, bishop of Virginia; Richard Hawley, astronomer; Robert Henry, economist, university dean; and Samuel^Marion, author and professor at Polytechnic Institute, Brooklyn.

Jerry's 'only close friend at college. All three, with several other young people, are at a Maine camp presided over by Olga, an attractive young woman who mar- .rled Mimi's wealthy grandfather short- jly before he died. Jerry has just met (Andy Fuller who is in love with Mjmi. !And now Jerry Is with Mfmi herself 'More impressed than ever with Mimi'a .charm, Jerry feels he is going: to enjoy the house party. NOW GO ON WITH THE STORY: • CHAPTER 14 "\ THERE "WERE 10 guests be• sides Lionel and me. With our 'hostess, we made 13 at the table. ! Bernice was mucft disturbed. "Something' will happen to some of us, you see if it doesn't! And. it will probably be Mimi. She can't miss it, with her peacock feathers and 13 at table. She laughs at me when I say such .things, but look at the awful luck she's had with her grandfather dying—and all that." She caught herself up as Olga 'turned a little toward us, and changed the ending of her speech skillfully. "Well, thank heaven, there won't be 13 of us in the cars. Andy Fuller will drive six, and Drake 'four, and the rest will go in Scott Selden's car. I am going with Scott. Far be it from me to ride behind Andy when he's got Mimi on the front seat!" Remembering the episode of the 1 afternoon, it seemed to me surprising that Mimi should ride with |Andy. But she did, wrapped in a 'wonderful cloak with a fur collar 'Which came up to her eyebrows. It was just as she was stepping into the car that she turned and •saw me. "Aren't you going to ride with us?" she asked. "We've plenty of room for him, haven't we, Andy?" Andy nodded, and before I knew it I was sitting on one of the small folding seats in Andy's seven-passenger car, With two pretty girls— the Ammidon twins—in the ton- neau, and a stocky little youth, Girard Sylvester,- on the other small seat. Olga was ill at ease and showed It. must I tell you? be just friends?" "Because I want more that." His voice was tense. I am going to have it, Mlml.

I was just behind Mimi, so near that by leaning- forward a little in the dark I could touch my cheek to the fur of her collar. I could hear her low laugh—the things she said to Andy. "I haven't forgiven you, Andy," floated back to me, "but I'd rather have you drive me than Drake or Scott Selden." ! "Thank you. Bernice says she wouldn't trust me when I've got |you beside me." "I would trust you, always—as ia driver." I.felt that I ought not listen, |that I ought to talk to the Ammi- Idori twins. But they seemed ab- jsorbedjn the little Sylvester chap. rSo once more Mimi'.i words floated Iback. • "I do like you, Andy. And the {things you do for me are—wonderful. But I won't stand being Ibossed. I never have been. I 'never will be." "That's why I—love you." Again, In desperation, I turned twins and spoke of the Ito the [beauty of the moon. n»oi«»Tewn.

They lent unwilling ears to 'my remarks, no I gave up In despair. { Mlml wa» naylng, "But when iyou do things as you did thin afternoon—trying to make love ito jme, when you know how I hate all at once, So thin wan 'why «hc had thrown her hat at Ihlm—why «he had cried. , "If you loved me," Andy ex(postulated, ! "But I don't. How many timed lit." The world wan, Iflooded with light. can't get away from me. You ar —mine." I was listening now with all m ears. I wanted to know what Mim would say to this autocrat wh claimed her. I played eavesdrop per unashamed. For a long, time she said noth Ing, and Andy drove as If a thou sand devils were pursuing. I he gan to realize what Bernice ha meant. Yet always, in spite of hi wild speed, he seemed to have th car under control. Then Mimi said, "That isn't th way to make mo care—to act lik a Turk and a tyrant." "Do you want to care, Mimi? "Oh; well, perhaps. Everybod; says it would be the Ideal thing. 1 I sat back in my seat, sick a heart. Oh, that hard little voice It seemed to me it could not be long to the girl with whom I had talked in the afternoon—to the woman of whom I had dreamed. The Bradleys 1 house was more like a country club than a private residence. It was part of a fashionable summer colony, and was furnished with a sumptuousness that seemed out of place in the heart of those wild mountains Yet it was lovely, none the less— a sort of fairyland—and my heajt quickened to 'the beat of the music. Lionel danced first with Olga, then turned her over to me. I'll confess that I felt sorry for her. She was'ill at ease nnd showed It I was 111 at ease, but J did not show It. I was sure of that, for Lionel said afterward: "You. might have been born to the purple, Jerry." But I was not bom to tho purple. I had been born In a parsonage, and tht thing had left Its marki upon me. I had not 'inherited, as those other young people had inherited, a tradition of gayety. It was not until I danced with Mlml that all the iur« »ang. I knew then thnt I hud never been young, that I hid .never ( been happy, that never before had I Why can't w drunk of the wine of life so that (('. was warm in my veins, making me ; mad with the joy of it. ~ Then and there was born in mel a fierce determination to win' her.i tha "An I did not know how I was going! to do it. Without her my lifcj would be wasted, my ambitions would go down in a crash. I would wander on, aimless, in an empty, world! ' I am sure that Mimi did not; have the leant idea of my .state of I mind. She treated .me .in a comradely fashion, as she had treated me in the wood. She gave me three dances before the evening 'as over, cutting out one of Aiidyl Fuller's to do it, and I could see | that he v was seething". - ' ; I'did hot go back in Andy'j car.i Olga asked me to ride with; her.
