Any conference held in Washington in the next thirty days which overlooks this need Is not likely to be effective in pumping new confidence Into finance, industry and commerce. That is one of the principal reasons why Merwln K. Hart, president of the New York State Economic Council, the other evening urged American people to call upon their Congressmen to turn the tide in this session "against all alien notions of government."

But he would look like a piker today if he had to stack up against "Spend- You-a-Billion" Eccles. One important difference must be noted, however. "Bet-You-a-Mil lion" Gates used to bet his i own millions. "Spend-You-a-Billion" Eccles wants his New Deal collaborators—presumably Messrs. Hopkins, et al—to spend the taxpayers' billion. This much must be said for the Eccles contribution to the discussion of how to end the recession: It serves to confirm the, old adage about doctors disagreeing. Dr. Jackson's prescription for ending the recession provides for killing the monopolies. Dr. Roosevelt's prescription—or the latest of his various prescriptions—provides for bigger and better monopolies backed .by the "government, as under NRA. And Dr, Eccles's is: Let's spend, a billion. . Somehpw, Dr. Eccles's prescription seems to us to have advantages over the other two. In the first place, it is simpler; in the second, spending a billion ought to be a lot of fun. C. I. 0. Losing Ground Fast The • wash - yourself • out • of - the- recession Idea has attractive possibilities. But before getting Into a lather about it, let's see how It works out in Britain. . Where Advice Is Needed Many of the agencies set up in Washington in the past five years . bear titles that mean more than they should. The term "recovery" has.been attached more than once to various Federal bodies, for in- •tance, to give assurance to the public that the object of the par; ticluar body, whether council or administration, was worthy. It has been so with the Business Advisory Council, organized by the Secretary of Commerce in .June, 1933, when the Blue Eagle was a fledgling. In Uu official description of it issued by Secretary Roper, "the council consists of sixty business, .leaders who are appointed each year, and who serve without compensation." It was formed under the organic act that authorizes the Department of Commerce to foster, promote and develop foreign and domestic commerce. Again quoting the official definition, the Business Advisory Council "devotes liseif to questions referred to it by the President and by the Secretary of Commerce, and also acts as a clearing house for Announcement by the C. I. 0. that it will attempt no orranizing work during the business recession is not unexpected nor is it entirely explained on, the easy theory that 'this is a time to consolidate our gains." The truth ot the matter is that labor has lost interest in the John L. Lewis plan. It Is no secret that the amount of money received from membership dues has dropped so alarmingly as to cause the leaders real concern. One reason, therefore, perhaps the main reason, for the abandonment of missionary endeavors is the lack of an adequate war-chest. With dwindling revenues, Mr. Lewis himself seems to show little of the enthusiasm which he formerly put into the cause, thus confirming the suspicion that he is less the crusader than he is the lover of 'power and money. So long as funds wore plentiful and support by the Administration varying he had visions of a hif'i destiny for himself. He almost made his fol- owers believe that they would share that destiny with him. Now, however, American workers are beginning to take an objective view of. the C. I. 0. are wonder- Ing why- tfiey are paying a dollar TODAY'S TALK By GEORGE MATTHEW ADAMS Author of "You Can;" "Just Among Friends" Don Marquis industrial views on government matters which affect business." This Is the body which is to confer w.lth President Roosevelt next Wednesday to .talk about the cooperation of business and govern, ment. It may occur to many citizens that few of'the "Industrial views" which may have been transmitted from Secretary Roper's council to the Chief Executive of the nation 'have.been heeded. There is nothing •of course, in tho Constitution or In th» whole body of Federal IBW.S jWh'ch compels a President to follow i »(lvlco from business mon, Jand-it I* well that no ouch compulsion ox- Iltl, IB 'the prencnt situation, liowcv- more a month and what they are getting in return. Typical'of the new attitude is the statement of David Dubinsky, president of the International Ladies' Garment Workers Union, third largest affiliate of the Lewis organization with membership exceeding 250,000. Mr. Duginsky attacks Lewis and his aides for their failure to make peace with the American Federation of Labor. It is not without significance that he dares to declare that "no man has a mortgage on the labor movement." ' There was a time when no C. I. 0, subordinate would have had the courage to speak thus of his chief. Doubtless the lesson of the present situation is not upon the Federation of Labor. With dissension spreading through the C. I. 0. ranks the Federation may not b» forced to make much of a fight to bring the seceding unions back into its fold. Another light went out in the world when friends tolc Don Marquis bon voyage. He was one of those rare creations of human kind born to season the joys and sorrows of the rest of us. The creator of the cockroach, archy, "with the lower-case view of life;" mehitabel, the amorous cat; The Old Soak, anc other characters quite as humorous, brought to Don grea fame and acclaim, but as a newspaper commentator in the New York Times stated, "The Old Soak," a humorous, sentimental bit of nonsense, which was an immediate success, anc which brought a fortune to the writer, took only three days to write, and "The Dark Hours," a wonderfully fine and beautiful play on the crucifixion, which took ten years to write was a failure and wiped put the profit of the success. His first book of poems, "Dreams and Dust" was published in 1915. I quote but one bit from. "Poems and Portraits," published in 1922—a poem to a lost love, beginning: "Only thy dust is here, thy. dust . . . But when chill May uncloses Her petals and is June, I feel A heartbeat shake the roses." Don Marquis put joy and laughter into a world meshed with confusion and spotted with sadness. His own life knew the latter to its full. But he kept all that locked up in his heart. He loved his friends, and they loved him. He was my friend—and I loved him. The humor of Don Marquis was a universal humor. Those of high and low estate grouped themselves about every line he wrote. There was rare beauty in his heart, and he radiated it, and warmed the world. And when the news came that he would be with us no more, dark, and people's eyes grew misty. But his memory leaves an afterglow about us all. Don was deeply religious and once remarked to a friend that he was always trying to "catch tup with Cod." Well, he has, without a doubt. And T rather envy him un there with Will Rogers, George Fitch, B. L. T., Earl Derr Bickers, Mark Twain and a host of others, each of whom played his part so well in the world in which we-live, making life less sad and richer in beauty.

In Britain "cary meant beloved or dear. The Cary family derives its name from-the manor of Karl, as it appears in the Domesday Book, "lying in the parish of St. Giles-on-lhe-Heath, near Launcestoii." .In the thirteenth century the name appears as Karry and by the next centiriiy we find Carey and Cary. Since the Carews o£ the West of England pronounced their name as if it were written 3arey, we may have some reason to believe that the origin is the same for both names. The history o£ one branch of the ! ary family in America begins with lohn (Carew) Cary who came from England to Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1634 where he is reputed to have been the first teacher ot Latin in the colony. Later :ie removed to Duzbury and then to Bridgewater, Massachusetts where ie- was town clerk till his death in 1681. He married Elizabeth Godin 1644. His sons and grand- ions were founders of towns In New England and became pioneers n Pennsylvania. The arms shown above belong o another branch o£ Carys, that of Henry Carey, 1st. Viscount Falk- and who was the son of Sir Wll- lam Cary nnd his wife Mary, sis- cr of Anne Boleyn. The arms are nost generally accepted by all the iarys and Careys. The motto 'Vlrtute Excerptae" is translated 'Conspicuous for virtue." Prominent today are: Austin, oresler, Brunswick, Me.; Edward lenry, surgeon, Dallas, Texns; Edvard Richard, engineer, Troy, N.

Our ranch assumed all at once, a national Importance The patriotism of the men who tilled the soil was set side by side with that of the men who fought in the trenchCs. No time to write! But how I lived! Wresting from the rich earth all that it would give. Put. ting potatoes, cabbages, corn- sowing every spare acre in wheat. Aunt Mary dried and canned our fruits and vegetables. Mimi gathered together groups of the moun tain women and taught them to conserve. As for my father, it was mar- vellous to see him. Strong in body and in spirit, he tramped over the hills. He found remote habitations and took to them good cheer and the gospel. He took also his own idealistic belief that men should flght for great causes. And he brought In many recruits. Another year of it, and then the Armistice. There was time now to take stock of ourselves, to find that out of our dynamic .energies we had won experience. We could go on with security. The future held for us no fears. The letters which came froni overseas told us that Bernice and Lionel were still staying on in Paris. Lionel's stories were attracting much" attention. It was, indeed, not long before he wrote the book which brought him fame. Andy had been wounded, and had been decorated for distinguished service. Olga's husband, although he had a German name, had fought on the side of the Allies. We had paid Olga what we owed her. She had not wanted to take It, but we had Insisted. Since then we had heard nothing from her. In June, following the Armistice, my wife and I rode up one day from our' morning's work, and found Aunt Mary In a flutter. "A lady telephoned," she «ald. "She and her husband are coming to dinner," Dinner meant to us, at that time, our midday meal. We had, during the war, sacrificed some of our formalities, and had adopted the mountain customs. We often had unexpected guests. So Mlml took tho news lightly. "Who Is It?" Aunt Mary's eyes danced. She WBJ antlclnatine the,sensation her words would make. "It Is your step-grandmother." "Olga?" Mimi's tone was incredulous. "Yes. And Dora has stewed chicken and dumplings." I knew Dora's stewed chicken dinners. Served country style, All on one platter. Delicious. Primitive. "She'd better add a salad," Mimi directed, then hurried to her room. "I've got to dress," she said, over her shoulder. I followed her, "Don't dress, my dear." "Why not?" "Because you are simply stunning as you are." " 'T u n n 1 n g," echoed small Stephen who had accompanied me. Stephen had a tawny mane like his mother's. Otherwise he resembled me. ' "You are two of a kind," Mimi told us, "saying the same things, I standing there with your hands in your pockets." Stephen's pockets were in knickers of orange linen which matched his mane. "I like my'hands in them," was his somewhat smug response, "and I like to say the same things as Daddy." Mimi laughed, "Well, run along now, and you and Daddy wash your hands and faces. I've got to fix my hair." Then, as she reached the door, she said, "I wonder why Olga is coming, Jerry?" "Perhaps, to show us her husband." 'She seems able to annex husbands easily," coolly, "doesn't she?" She could not even then, you see, be quite fair to "the Ogre." When later she joined us in the Iving room, she was glowing with icr quick toilette. She had put on a fresh silk shirt, and wore a :le of her favorite blue, but she ivas still in her riding clothes. A huge limousine lumbered, presently, up the bill. The roads verc, at that time, rough, and the chauffeur's face wore a look of ex- :rcme exasperation. Ao ho came at last to a stop before our modest domicile, the ook of exasperation gave way to mo of ill-concealed contempt. He .ouchcd his hat In a perfunctory manner, and got down to open the door of the car. But I was before him, and was laying with all my heart, "Olga, low good of you to come!" Her florid countenance wan eel n more mature lines than when I had last seen it, but she was beaming as she held out her hand to us. "Aren't you surprised, Jerry? And you haven't met Max?" The face of the man beside her was as beaming as her own. There was something very appealing in their eager friendliness. I am sure that Mimi saw It .as I did. For she put her arms about Olga and kissed her. And Olga's eyes filled suddenly with tears. "You are a darling," she said, "to ! give me such a welcome." "I'd be a beast," said Mimi, and; meant it, "if I didn't." | Our guests swept into pur ugly house and .did not see its ugliness. They saw only its hospitality. The air was cool, and there was a little fire on the hearth. Olga, sitting beside it in her blue silk gown, had a billowy effect like the waves of the sea. Dora, coming in and out, gazed at her spellbound. She spoke of her always, afterwards, as "the pretty lady". She was, I arn cure, much more impressed by Olga's j blonde beauty than she had everi been by Mimi ; s more delicatej charms. The table, when at last dinner was announced, was very attractive with Its gray linen squares, its| centerpiece of pale marsh violets.; We stood while my father said' grace, I can't tell you how proud: I was of him, with his pleasant 1 voice, his straight figure, nnd his fine head. Olga sat at my right, and as I talked to her 1 was a\yare that she lad, Indeed, found happiness. She lad never been quite at ease with ler Senator-husband—with all his 'astidious tastes—his aristocratic labits. She had always been self- conscious in the society of those with whom she had mingled, as his wife. She was not self-conscious with this later love—because he was as ingenuous as herself. She spoke of Mlml, "She is more' beautiful than ever." 'It is the life she lives. She oves it." I could see that she was skep- .ical. "But she adored luxury, Jerry. Do you think this will con-j tent her always?" "Why look ahead?" Across the table she challenged Mimi, frankly. "So you ar« really ;lad you married him?" ' And Mimi said, lightly, "He til priceless, Olga. I couldn't do wlth-j mt him." i Lightly said, but not lightly' meant. I knew It by the depth of ecllng In her voice. (To ne Continued) ; '•ii. ?
