A Pulaski county jury was unable (o iiKi'ce on a verdict. Some member.-! of the jury insisted, and perhaps rightly, that the prosecution had failed to prove him guilty of the specific charge of fraud on which he was tried. But few will attempt to deny, we imagine, that the prosecution was altogether success!'til in proving that Mr. McDonald's conduct of the office of secretary of state conclusively demonstrated bis unfit ness for a responsible public position. The man who last year came within a few thousand votes of winning the governorship of Arkansas was shown fo have purchased for life slate large quantities of soap and other supplies at prices out of all relation to the prevailing market, and to have accepted from the sellers of those supplies thousands of dollars in campaign contributions and loans. The trial jury was unable (o agree that in MO doing "Mr. McDonald- committed any crime, but the people of Arkansas will agree that if the prosecution was. concocted by Governor 1'ailey and others to cook Mr. 'McDonald's political goose, as charged by Mr. McDonald's lawyer, a very thorough job of cooking was done. Pay As }'on Enter New York seems In be making another of its periodic clfoiis to clean up the burlesque singe. A number of 'theaters have been unable to renew their licenses, and the cleanup wave apparently is spreading across Ihe country. Some of ils opponents have raised the cry of "censorship" and arc pleading that this cleanup is an unwarrantable interference with the. freedom of the theater. This protest has precious little foundation. Burlesque has long been a purveyor of unadulterated smut. It is always possible to rule out smut without depriving anyone of an essential liberty. At the panic time, another thought OUT OUR WAY does occur lo us. No one who oj>jcct,s to (he sort of performances that are found in burlesque houses is nminv :uiy obligation to go to (hem, Whether the cleanup lasts 01' not, you won't be shocked by burlesque if you refrain from Inlying a ticket. What h Left 7V> Celebrate? Na/.i Gcrinnny is reported lo Ijo indignant, boeatist; various British and American universities have refused to join in the celebration of GoGllingcn University's'bicentenary H'is June, ThesG refusals, of course, are si'mply the universities' protest against the way the Na/i dictatorship lias prostituted the ancient ideal of free and im- (raniinelcil scholarship—which in the only kind of scholarship worth a picayuife. It' a university, of all places, is not allowed to pursue truth without restriction; if iU professors can lie persecuted for their opinion, their race or their religion—then that university has simply been withdrawn from the great, international fellowship of .scholars. i It is precisely that load with Jlitler- ism has place;] on the once-great German universities, la it any wonder that the free universities of England and America are loath to take part in the Gqettingen bicentenary? Diplomacy's Paper Profits American diplomacy in London seems to have scored a new triumph. H has succeeded in persuading British officialdom to allow 10 American women, instead of the customary eight, to be presented to and make their court sios before King George and Queen Elizabeth at the spring cowls. Long negotiations, it is said, were necessary before this concession could be won. The <|itcsUoii of the nujnbcr of Americans to be presented' at court has been a vcx-injr one for many years —one I hat has furrowcit the brows of American ambassadors for heaven knows how long. I'l-obably it is a great victory (hat lias been won. We wouldn't know. Rut it does seem to ns that this country could liml more' important work for its "ambassador than this business of looking out for social climbers, iijjrht not the republic get on just as well if—horrid (bought!—no American women at all got Ihe inestimable privilege «'f IwwiiHr and scraping to a foreign monarch?

Joan shuddered now every time she saw the man, Bob was right; he was a horrible person. But his presence was even moro terrifying lo her. He was another link to (he past, and she could not breathe easily again until lie was on his way buck to California. Shortly before noon, Mr. Ilcmlry brought the man over lo her desk. "Mr. Norton wants 10 make a few changes in some of the terms of that agreement,' he said lo Joan. "Think you can go over it with him?" "Of course." "Good. I've a luncheon appointment wilh my lawyer, Charley, so I'll have lo run along. Mi. Darrelt will lake good care of you." Norton looked down at Joan, slight smile twisting his lip. His eyes -were expressionless. "I'm suve she will," he said. He drew up a chair' alongside of her desk and took out his copy of the Bella Terra sales agree- menl. Mr. Hendry went back for his hat and coal. A moment lalcr lie stopped on his way out. "By the way," he said to Joan "I don't expect to he back this afternoon. It you want a : hours to go shopping . . ." Joan smiled. "Thank you, Mr Hendry. I do." Norlon smiled again. For sonv inexplicable reason, Joan wishec that Mr. Hendry had not left he alone with him. He looked lik< Dracula, she lold herself, and hal expected him lo stand up, spreai out his long arms, and lurn intc 11 vampire bat. For the first timi in all the years she had been working, she felt uncomfortable for being alone with a man. She hoped his work would not take long. J-JE went through the agreement, slowly, thoughtfully. Occa- lonally he dictated a paragraph o be added, or changed. As she ook down the notes, $he could eel his eyes burniHg inlo her. After ten or fifteen minutes, he aid the papers aside, deliberately, Ic noticed that the tiny clock on icr desk marked the hour of noon, "It's twelve o'clock," he remarked. "I'm keeping you from your lunch." "Thai's quite all right," Joan assured him, her tone crisp and businesslike. ;: "I think it would be very much nicer," he suggested, "if I took you to lunch. We could return later nnd finish this." Joan started, uneasily. "I'm very sorry," she stammered. "1 can't—not today." Norton smiled again. .. "I dis- linctly heard Mr. Hendry tell you to take the afternoon off. Why can'l we spend it together?" "I—I have an engagement." "Don't tell me that!" He laughed at her, waving aside her excuses. "How can you have an engagement when you just learned a moment ago that you would be free?" He rose careVcssly, walked over to the window and pointed outdoors. "It's too perfect an afternoon to waste in an office," he commented. "And I'm a stranger in your city. Surely you could show me a little hospitality . , ." * * * TIE returned to his chair, and as he passed in back of Joan, he loo dropped his hand to pat her shoulder. But in his manner of doing it there was none of the fatherly kindliness which Mr. Hendry's sunilar action had denoted. Norton's touch on her shoulder was deliberate, purposeful, and unpleasant. Joan writhed under iU "I do have a luncheon engagement," she insisted. "Do you mind if we finish this as quickly as possible? I should not like to be late." "You can break the appointment." "It's quite impossible," she retorted sharply. "There is no way in which I can reach the friend ! am to meet. . ." "A lady friend, I suppose?" he asked impertinently. "Yes." "Then suppose I take you both to lunch, and you and' I can enjoy ourselves alone, later on." "I'm sorry, Mr. Norton. Your invitation really is a little—embarrassing." •She laid her left hand on thi desk, where the sunlight picked up Ihe brilliant sparkle of the diamond in her ring. The gcs- urc was not lost on Norton. Ho aughcd, brazenly. "So thal's the reason!" he remarked. "The boy friend's jealous, eh?" "No—not ox.i*tly—" Still laughing, he palled the land that wore the ring. Joan >ulled it away quickly. "Don't be so old-fashioned, my dear!" Norton advised. "What he boy friend doesn't know \vfll never matter. While he's worh- ng hard Ihis lovely afternoon, you and I can steal a march—" "Please understand, Mr. Norlon. it's quite impossible. I'm engaged ,o marry Mr. Andrews, of Ihis of"ice. You know him, of course. I don't think Mr. Hendry would ike—" a * * MORTON looked up in surprise. "Young Andrews, eh? Well, that does complicate matters. John Hendry would never have ne culling in on Andrews' territory ... the lucky devil!" He leaned closer, nnd once again his dark eyes looked into icr very soul. "You know you are quilc tha loveliest girl?" lie murmured. "Your face lias haunled me, ever since I met you." Joan squirmed. "There's something about you that reminds me of someone . . ." Norton persisted. "Someone I k«cw . . . did you over live in California?" 'No!" Joan almost shouted the denial, drawing away from his nearness. Quickly, however, she gathered her wits. "That is," she amended, less violently, "not since I was a baby. I was bofn in Sacramento, but my family left California when I was still an infant." Dorothy's spirit hovered over, prompting, strengthening. Norton smiled. "But you did come from California! I knew it. You can always lell a Sunshine girl . . . Who was your fallier? I mighl have known him. I lived in Sacramento for years . . ." Jean's nerves v;eie quivering. She couldn't fool this man. His eyes saw too much. Even now they were probing, seeking, wondering what caused her hesitation. Was lie tormenting her, knowing full well who her father was? With all the slrenglh of will she possessed, she forced herself to smile, and 16 answer lightly: ."I imagine my father stayed in Sacramento just'long; enough for me lo join his family ... I really come from n long line of gypsies. California was just one stopping-off place."

Frisch brought with him a col- .ection of films to prove his points Here is his story of what happens when a bee brings home a message of plentiful food: First, Ihe wanderer disgorges its (NO. 208) BV DR.

There may be a narrowing nt some of the larijc blood vessels which leave the heart, defocis of the ualls Of the heart, or other disturbances which make it difficult to secure complete and proper circulation of the blood.

Then it begins a "round dance." Moving slowly round in circles. The dance conveys the one word, "sugar," and there must have been found enough of it to m?.ke it worth while for other bees to seek out its source. Otherwise, or if the extraction of the sugar difficult, the bee will refuse to dance. It will merely go back and collect more. It will not invite friends to hard labor. Bees who have found pollen have what Prof. Frisch calls the "tall-wagging" dance. Of this, too, he has a cinema record. 'Inside' Story of Mat Game Told in Book NEW YORK, (UP)—Professional wrestling is America's best oryan- izcd sport and is in the big business class, according to Marcus Griffin, who has written a history ot the mat game. Entitled "Pall Guys," the book gets behind the scene, gives "ratings" of grapplcrs, tells of double crosses and "trust busters." Griffin calls the -wrestling game a great combine, rivaling sopin vast corporation in the business world. He charges that the "trust 1 ' uses a big stick on smaller combinations. , Histories and backgrounds of many great grapplers are covered, including Frank Gotch, "Strangler" Lewis.
