Anios at the Park H is vmfoi'limnlc thai more a;le(|iitilc space Tor the parking «f automobiles is not at 'present available in the im- mcilialc vicinity of the t'V!ii«lslaii(l ill Walker Park. Tim fair iissoriiition is applying itself to the problem' and hopes before IOIIK to niako arraiiKu- inenls for the convenience, of those who drive their cars to ball Raines and other attractions at the park. In the meantime, however, for the protection of the, automobile owners themselves and of the''park, it is necessary that rather strict regulations ' be enforced. If motorists who take their cars to the park will observe the regulations and otherwise cooperate no serious (rouble should be experienced.- One lliiitK that cannot be tolerated is 'the practice of cutting across the park. Automobiles must be kept'on the driveways or in such areas as inay be specifically set aside for parking. Those who are unwilling to put up with such delay in getting out of the park as is unavoidable tinder the circumstances slioul^ leave their automobiles "outside. , Sluininitig for Social, Outlook Is Useless .It is an interesting little experiment that the German Nam have announced—this business of forcing all high jfovera'ment officials and "culUirjil. authorities" to spend two months' eiicli year as manual laborers. The idea back of it is to bring the men who make policy .and mold opinion into closer contact with the common people. As Gcu. Hermann Goering remarks, "Those who want to lead the people must never forget how the mail of the people feels." So a number of starchcd-collar Prussians have already closed their desks and gone out to get jobs in textile factories, coal mines, book shops and what-not. Two months later they will •be back at fheir regular posts—-full, no doubt, of a deep fellow-feeling for the 'man at the bottom of the heap. In theors, the idea is swell. In actual practice, it probably will be pretty much of a thid. For the one thing that erring man cannot do, is to find out what it feels like to live on a lower rung of the ladder by going slum- ming. Lifting yourself, by the bootstraps is child's play by comparison. What is it that gets on the worker's • mind and makes him dream of a fairer and more decent world, anyway? The mere fact that he has to work .with his hands and earn his living by (he sweat of his brow? Not at all. That has been humanity's common lot ever since men came down out of the trees and shed their fails. No man lit to be called a man feels abused because he has to work for his living. The real (rouble is psychological— a feeling of helplessness, of insecurity, of being adrift in a world where all of your best efforts, your lidelity ;m<l your industry may not avail to save you. You may be frugal aiid industrious beyond all measure; if a depression, a war, a decline in foreign trade or some fool's monkeying with the currency close:.-] the factory where you work, you are out of luck and there js precious little you can do about il. That is the sort of Ihing |.hu man on top can't gel next to by a mere process of working for two months on an assembly line. That feeling of insecurity never will put its icy lingers on his heart. In the back of his mind must always be the knowledge that lie is in this only for a little while. He will return to .security when his two months are up. Short rations are no Hardship when you know there is a big chicken dinner waiting for you a little later. A sympathetic understanding of the (roubles of the man at the botiom. is something that can't be taught. Unless you have come up from the hot- lam yourself, or have been born with the necessary breadth of imagination ami sympathy, you dwell forever in another world. {Slumming parties may salve the conscience, but thcv mean very, very little. l]cu.ti.lij'ying. ilw. job Shakespeare once 'asked, ironically, "What's in a niilme?" The answer of - 20lh century America seems to be, "Every Hi ing." Samuel Fasslcr, commissioner nf buildings in Manhattan, urged the other day that master plumbers adopt for Ihemselves the now'name of "sanitary engineer," sn as to make a belter impression on the public. Ami why not? The whole idea thdso days seems to be to beauly your job with a fancy title. We have seen the press agent blossom out as a public relations counsel, the undertaker become a mortician, the hairdresser a beautician and the movie actress become an arlisl. If the plumber wishes to become a sanitary engineer, whv shouldn't he? SIDE GLANCES By George Clark "A woman shouldn't lell her right age.

"What's the matter?" she asked lightly. Joan rubbed a hand over her forehead. "I'm tired, I guess. And I'd forgotten all about Norton—" Dorothy laughed. "Surely you're not afraid of him, arc you?" "I think I am . . . ." "You goose! . With Bob and Mr. llendry in the saine office?" "It's not that. He's a link—to California. 1 can't be sure whether he knows or not." "Fiddlesticks!" Dorothy claimed lightly. "Don't worry about it." But her eyes clouded, and for a moment she sat on the "Was ho guilty?" She asked it Imidly, knowing how painful the lucstion might be. Joan, however, did not flinch. Her voice, when she replied, was sad, bill still quiet. She had inswered the question so many iincs, in her own heart as well as to other people. "He never killed a man, Doro- !hy," she said simply. "1 know it means nothing for mo to say that. He said it so often—and ny mother said il. But nobody believed them. I know that lie tvas innocent, just as you would lavo known it of your father, jusl ds I know now that Bob could anything like that." "The evidence was all circumstantial, of course." Joan nodded. "Diabolically so. I guess even the jury couldn't believe otherwise. The murder was so—so cold-blooded. I remember reading about it in the papers. Dad wouldn't have me at the trial, and mother tried to keep the newspapers from me. But I saw them, o£ course. And when I read llic awful accusations against father, I would forget for a moment who he was, and I would shudder with hatred, too." t t, t A BSENTLY she traced the outline of the lace in the nightgown ftlic held in her lap. "Father and this Mr. Jordan,' 1 she went on, "were such close friends. He was as devoted lo him as I am to Mr. Heridry. Or rather, as Bob is to Mr.. Hendry Father was young, and Mr. Jordan, as his employer, gave him unlimited opportunity. He trustee liim with every dollar that passc( through the company, and father would have died 'himself bcfori betraying his confidence. He could never have done—what thej said—" "lie could never have quarrelec with him? Joan shook her head, "t don 1 think he'ever did.
