Balancing lludgel Calk for Slcni A/fiWiH-ms The congress uvidenlly wouliln'l h.ue an objection in tin: world to balancing the budget, if the job cmilil bo done without either levying new taxes or cutting down on spend ing. Early reception of I ho pi 1 budget recommendations in ought to make il easy for anyone lo muleretaiul why it is such a mortally job to cut down on government, spending once you get it started. Mr. Ordinary Congressman, who is in there with :i pet bill to spend •$100,000,000.011 the deepening, straightening, beauLitication, and elimination of roadside ditches, gels np and liannniirM the tub us soon as that lovely wuvil, economy, is mentioned, lie is all i'or, it,Jie thinks it is line. But a great change comes over, him as soon as someone suggests that his own 8100,000,000 project must he one of the things lo lie dropped. This project is dilVerent. H is vital- Iv .necessary. The country .needs il. 31c will light like grim d'ealh lo save if. The $100,000,000 involved can easily he saved by making cut;! elsewhere—by digging, for example, into the $200,000,000 which his good friend and colleague, IScpresi'iilalive Gerrymander, woiil'j' spend on the eradication of painter's colic. I!e;u'i!<jj this, Representative Gerrymander—who has hern yelling for economy with the best of them—utters pitiful moans and aimotmcVs -tl\;it ,'his j bill is precisely the oiur bill which is 'indisputably essential. Lot it stay on the docket, and .save money by weeding the surviving Republicans out of * , Ihc clerical staffs in the government departments. Presently, before, the outsider knows quite what, is happening, Ihese two congressmen got together ami agree to btand fast for each other's bills and to try to make the needed savings clse- - where. Their circle grows, us other congressmen with pet projects join I them: and the upshot, as likely as not. is that congress blandly appropriates 1 half a billion'more than it appropriated ~ the year before, and: hows in the direc- ^ lion of economy by reducing the staffs 1 of half a dozen of the federal bureaus which are actually doing some useful work. There is no particular point viewing all this here, except to remark that the way to cut expenses is—surprisingly enough—to cut expenses. If we are going to balance the budget, a lot of pet pi'ojocts will have to be discarded. The government will have In forego doing various things which probably ought to be done. It will have to withhold money from causes that genuinely need money. !f the resoluteness and hardlwitcd- ncss to do jusl that sort of tiling are not forthcoming, we shall not get a balanced budget. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark II Wove, Aviation has made splendid progress in recent years, bill there apparently are limits lo the feats (hat modern airmen can achieve, h'or that reason, the French Air Ministry has indicated that it may postpone the New York-Paris' non-stop race, proposed lo commemorate the !0th anniversary of the start i;f Colonel Lindbergh's famous solo hop. The ministry was inlluenced by protests Unit Ihe bop was an extremely • hazardous undertaking and might easily result in tragedy. It would -of course disappoint some adventurous souls, but if the race is postponed until such lime as further progress has minimineii ils dangers, it would seem (his best policy. The race is intended to honor America's famed airman, but America's appreciation of Ihi! honor would be clouded if .valuable lives were; lost. of the iyiciry-Go-Round "jMiTy-^o-rouncls," :;!iys a n.'.sohilicm adoplcd by llu: Junior Confi'iTiitt: of Ihe Nalicnal I'cd- ciaLlon rjl' Music Clubs, "[day an inferior grade of Ja'.v. tt'hlcli is ilcslruyhv; the musical Ideals of young America."

Hopeless and defcalcd, she sal on Ihc narrow bed, and looked out across the dreary rooJ- lops. In her cars, Sybil's voice, honeyed ant! soolhinr,', still rang, and Joan could sense the sludicd sympathy it-would hold as she repeated the story lo Hob. But Sybil's eyes would remain cold Ihiouijh Ihc lellinfi of it, and in her heart Micro would be no compassion for the girl who loved him. Joan did nol bln'mc Sybil. Long ago she had ceased to blame pco pic lot- drawing away Irom her 'Won't yon and Dorothy wait just i moment, Barbara?" she heard ic-r suggest.

She coulc not have known what misery he presence brought to light. If, as she had noliced Joan' confu-'on, the llioughl did occu lo her, she had responded splen didly. It was Dorolhy who cov ercd up Ihe mailer of the broken cocklail glass, insisting that she herself had knocked il Irom Joanfe hand. 11 was Dorothy, too, who had kepi (lie conversalion gay and meaningless, unlil the time Joan found courage lo tear herself away. * * ~ CYBIL had been delighted to ^ learn thai Dorolhy had known Joan in the past. There was no end to the questions she asked. They had lived in Seattle? (bought. "I've had two years . . . Iwo perfccl years." She gol up, walked to the window and pulled down Iho shade. Perhaps it was belter, getting il all over quickly like this. Al leasl she was spared Ihe suspense of wondering, and eventually, the agony of a last parting with Bob. It was easier how, while he was far away. She would write him a note and xplain. . . . No, she could not o thai. She could never explain n a way that he would undcr- land . . . Let him hear the story .0111 Sybil. He would, anyway. She would merely say goodby. Bob would love her, despite vhatever the world said. She knew that. She knew thai, as she knew the sun would rise again on he morrow. lie would stand by icr side against the world. But deep within his own heart, the words would ring: "Her father killed a:man.- It's in her blood loo, to kill." If, they had children he would \vat,ch them too, with suspicion and, fear, wondering -if the curse had.been-handed down lo (hem. . . No, she could not ask -Bob to live through; that-shadow Sybil. She did not want to explain, lo plead wilh her for understanding. She could nol feel • safe with her secret locked in Sybil's breast. For Sybil could not remain true lo a trust; her eyes were loo cold, too uncompromising. She might promise, she might pledge, but she would keep the secrel only as long as it . suited her lo do so. Joan tried to shul her cars lo the phone's insislciU ringing. She would not answer il. It was not Sybil Hendry, however. For Sy'-il, at that moment, was pacing up and down her own rose and silver boudoir, waiting impatiently for the call she had put through to Philip in Chicago. 'PWENTY minutes later, her -*- brother's voice came lo her across the miles. "Hello, Philip. Any news in Chicago?" I "Not a (bins." His lone was ild discouraging. "This is a w goose chase, Syb.

Got.good reports on her, loo. She lived at a girls' club—Ihe old matron even remembered her there. But beyond that, I'm stuck." Sybil's thoughts raced beyond Chicago. ' l' "Philip," she said excitedly, "I found out some'hing today. Forget Chicago. Go out to Sealllc, will you? She lived in Sealllc— and went to Eastrf-n High School there, seven years ago." "Wait a minute! I'll write that down. Eastman High School, you say?" "Yes. That gives ye': romclhmg more definite to wo:-'.: W, docsn' 1 it?" "I hope it will.

With a sudden shrillness, the telephone on her wall rang, and its echo jangled through,the room, filling her mind.with new dread. She stood still-in !thecenter' of the room, her .arms, filled . with clothes, she had just '.taken from the closet. Who woiifd it., be? Who could it be, .but Sybil? And now she'did not wanFto talk lo I'll wire you from there." "Please do, Philip. I'll be anxious. Bob's out of town, and I'd like to get somelhing definite before he returns." 'O.K.
