'Forgotten Man Still Under Darfe S fries vorkinu fur Die Kudcral Emergency Keliof Ailniiiiisli'Htioii sal down not long ago to try to lind out just who tin's forgotten man we have been hearing so much about really is. Examining Ilieir records, Uiey came to Hie sin-race al last willi the following description : He is between 45 and 05 years of age. He makes up about 27 per cent of the "employable" relief population; but there's a catch in the use of that adjective, Jbecanse his chances of reentering private industry are almost nil, '15 being accounted a acre and yellow old age in employment offices these (lays. The forgotten man, further, has little hope 'of cashing in under any unemployment insurance scheme, and unless he is Celling very close lo 65 no old- age pensions will do him much good. > • « If the ad m i n ist ration's $1,800,001),000 \voik lehei' scheme goes through, it may mean a job for liini, but the jol( v,ill he only temporary and it iion't jw.\ him any very [triiiccly sum. All in .ill, he is plodding along under a picllv sky, find (here is little imhtaticn his sky is going to get much lightei And his existence under buch ui cum stances is one of the most telling indictments imaginable against oin \\liole boeial system. Tlic imn »ho has passed '15 ought to . be jiibt uiteimg the age in which he •.an enjo\ the fruils of the society in which he lues. The experience he has gamed in his work ought to make him a v.ihi.iblc! man in his job; his UMib oi living ought to have ripened his wisdom so, that jie could get more human \alues out of his life than ever befoi e * * * Jnttead, m all too many cases, passing on into middle age is apt to take him ovei the deadline beyond which there is no secure place for him. We seem to h.ue arranged things so that we have no use for him. If he a job, he must worry about losing it, ,f h c | 0 . SL , S it> , )C js [)ildl( , (1 into .1 situation from which it is constantly becoming more diiritult for him to cxtucate himself by his own exertions. Then, is something both heartless nnd silly about such a state of ull'uirs. One of the prime features of any proper "new deal" ought to be the discovery of some workable way to remedy it. —Bruce Cation. JIYTHEVILLE, (AUK.) COURIER NEWS Bad? From the Dead There is something eerie and fascinating about the story of the Englishman who died on a hospital operating table, remained dead for live mimitcs, \vnn brought back to life— to object that he was happier while dead and that the doctors had no right to force him to pick up the life he had discarded. To be sure, a rationalist would have little "difficulty in explaining the odd experience this .man had—his emergence, while dead, into a light, .spacious room, where he greeted his dead wife and other friends who bad died yours before. Any psychologist could think, o(V- li.'iwl, of luflf ^ dozen impressive- sounding \voi\l.s that would reduce the whole matter to a rolalii'oly simple explanation. But it i s doubtful if this would impress the hero of the odd experience very much. He died and he returned to life, and he brought back with him a strange, unearthly memory. The memory will unquestionably remain green and color his thoughts and actions for the rest of his life. Another Burlesque A certain percentage of tin; news of the day ahviiys originates in the courts of law; and during (he last few month(| this newspaper reading public has br*n singularly unfortunate in the kind of news that has been originating there. First we had the Vanderbilt adoption case, which was a sorry sort of mess, any way you took it. Then came the lluuptmann trial, which showed justice trying to function iu the midst of a not too-cxpcrtly arranged three-ring circus. And now we have the lawjsuit of Mr. and Mrs. Kudv ' The preliminary rumblings of this affair, sometime ago, gave due notice that it was going to be fairly unsavory, and the reality has lived up— or down— to advance notices. It's all part of Hie picture of modern society, of course; but one does wish that the picture didn't have such unpleasant colors.

There were a lot of other things he wanted to talk ib this girl about, he suddenly realized. Not about the mill, but about herself. He wanted to know her tielter. A lot better. "liey passed tho mill and presently were driving between rowa of bouses, all exactly alike — the mill workers' homes. Gale said, "Vou can let mo out here any. where." "Nonsense!
