Figures presented to Miss IVrhins indicate thai no less than onol'iTUi of all the cliildrcn in the country an- n»w showing signs of umlcr-iioiirishmcnl, latk of ])roi>er medical caiv and inadequate housing- Tjiat statement speaks for itself and needs no comment. Now Mi£s Perkins has called a meeting of child health leaders, to convene in \Yasliiriglon on Oct. 6 under the auspices of the Children's linrcnu. To say that this conference will have plenty of work to do is to put it very 'mildly. It will have to find a way to meet one of the most distretisin^ situations imaginable. The whole country will wish il all kinds of success, The Graj Sails On\ Announcement that the German dirigible Graf Zeppelin will appear at I he Chicago Century of Progress exposition - on Oct. 26 reminds us once more that the Germans seem perfectly at home with these lighter-thari-air lineiv, no matter what difficulties other nations may have with them. _TMsj-ergarkable-airship liiis, l>y now, a record of achievement so long I hat no one can recite it all without a reference hook. It has (town a round the • world, it has crossed various oceans so ninny times that people have lost count, it has acted as a commercial carrier, and it has never had a really serious accident. Now it is gniiijr to re-visit the American middle west, and no one has the slightest doubt that it will make its trip right on schedule. All in all, the career of the Graf Zeppelin is a striking example of the. tilings that can be done with a dirigible by people who know the tricks.

The game season would saon l>« open and there was a lodge available for week-ends. If Dick missed Kve lie dirt not say =o in his letters. He sent her his love always and assurance tliat she was the dearest wife in Ihe world. There were times when Kve felt that *he had -everything IP the world « sirl could want. She had an excellent !ob and seemed on the road (o professional success. She had A fine husband and she was sure lhat through her slock market ventures r.he would sojii achieve wealth. What more was lo be desired? ' Thus she. summarized lier assets and gave herself a mental pal on tho back on the morning she received Dick's letter asking her lo send the sweater. Kve dropped the letter Into her purse ind a little later went to the tnen'B sporlwear department to buy the sweater. While she was sbe told Miss Clltlny slie would call from another telephone. Upstairs in [ho ladies' lonnsa there were booths and direct line telephones. Eve went into one of Iliese booths and put through the call. "Atlas Coupler haq been reccd-' ing rapidly, Mrs. Under," said the young man in the brokerage office. "I'm sorry but if you wish lo protect your interesls it will Iw necessary for you to deposit a substantial sum at once." "I see!" gulped Ere. "How much will I need?" "Why, I'd say about $<00 or 5500," the young man told her crisply. "It's likely that will be an adequate safeguard." The market never goes down more tban 25 points rjefoni advancing, 1 does it?" she asked nairely. "It doesn't usually, but of course w» can't tell Tor certain what will happen," lie answered. "I «ee. I'll bring you a ch«ek," Era promised. She felt sho had no alternative, even though she might be violating a trust Dick had deposited $500 in a joint account before leaTlng Lake City. He had impressed upon her the importance of having such an emergency fund. "If anything should happen yo\i could draw on it, Kve," he had said. "You might be taken sick and there would be no one to take care ot you. I'd want yon to go to a hospital and have Hie best of care instead o! lying hero alone. And hospitals cost money!"
