Time for Action The record of accomplishment of the present congress for the first four months of its session has been far from impressive. The average reader, we imagine, would be hard put to jiame a. single thins that it has done besides talk. Under some circumstances that mii;M be all very well. But just at present definite action along certain lines is imperative and the sooner a start is made the better. Particularly is it essential that government spending be brought wilhin govern'ment income. The present national debt, though large, is not necessarily dangerously so for a country as rich as the United States. But it most certainly would be dangerous to permit it to continue to rise in a period like the present, when goVerirmcut revenues are at high levels and the apparent need for emergency spending is greatly reduced. Almost everybody at Washington, from President Roosevelt on down, has declared for economy and a balanced budget. With such unanimity of opinion it ought not to be difficult to get the job done,/regardless oC differences as -to methods. The president has asked for authority to withhold 15 per cent from all appropriations, the amount impounded to be available for such purposes as lie deems essential. Some congressional leaders have declared for a flat cut of 10 per cent, arguing that .the president's plan holds no positive 'assurance'.of a but- anced budget. There is merit on both sides and possibly a combination of the two pro.; posals would be a satisfactory solution. If a flat 10 per cent cut is what is needed to bring expenditures within . income the best way to handle the problem might be to cut 10 per cent ,;... from all appropriations and then impound an additional 5 per cent for use at the Direction of the president in supplementing the regular appropriations where need for additional funds becomes apparent. This would insure a balanced budget and still allow a ; reasonable degree of flexibility. But the program should not stop there. In times of relatively high national income, such as the present, the debt should be rapidly reduced so that when the next emergency arises the country will again be in a position OUT OUR WAY to borrow extensively, if necessary. There .should be further retrenchment through the elimination of such extraordinary government agencies and activities as are no longer urgently needed, and perhaps there should also be additional taxation, preferably through a broadening of the income lux base, to speed the debt reduction program. The situation is a challenge to President Roosevelt, To meet it requires the same strength and courage which he displayed in the bold measures which he look to meet the emergency which existed early in his administration. Congress, it is evident, is waiting for leadership. It is to be hoped that he will supply it when lie returns this week-end from his Gulf fishing trip. Share Uj) and Save Lives Determination of the exact cause of the disaster fo the dirigible Ilinden- Inn-g must await full investigation. At the (moment, about all that can be said confidently is that if the big ship's gas cells had been filled with non- explosive helium, instead of hydrogen, the catastrophe would not have occurred. The Germans use h.Vidrogcn in their airships because they have no helium. The United States lias a practical monopoly on that gas. Hut the United States has no big dirigibles, and evidently is not in the mood to build any. That helium monopoly would not, therefore, seem, to be of much use to us right now. Since the Germans do build and operate big dirigibles, wouldn't it be sensible for us to make our helium supply available for thorn? The llindeiiburg would in all probability be afloat today if wo had done so. 'i'lie nulio broadcasting systems have sot themselves up as judges ot musical talent.

CHAPTER XVIII pIIILIP sat in a tiny ice cream parlor opposite the Eastman High SchooJ and sipped hot chocolate. He wished the ice cream parlor were a cafe, and the hoi chocolate a highball, but at leasl lie was on the right track, he tell. That was sbmelhing. His eyes were glued on the lake and the school. As yet, however the object of his watchful waiting had not put in an appearance. In the five minutes' convor lion Philip had eivjoycd with the secretary to the principal of Eastman High, he had learned three tilings about Miss Baldwin. First that she had been working for the indomitable Miss Greeley for Ics: lhar_ six months; second, that sin disliked her almost as much a. he did; and third, that she usually left the school at 3 o'clock daily Since early afternoon, therefore Philip had haunted the Eastmai grounds and the little soda parlo in the hope of a chance encounte with Miss Baldwin. But Mis 13 a 1 d v.- i n had not appeared Neither had he seen her leavin the school in the afternoon, although he managed to be on hand womplly at 3 o'clock. In his pocket was a frantic note Yom Sybil. Bob,' so sho wrote, vas marrying Ihe girl very short y. Philip must discover somc- iiing immediately! There was less han two weeks before them. . . . jl/riSS BALDWIN, he fell sure, was his only chance. She had access lo the record cards; she could tell him, at leasl, why Joan Barrett had left school, nnd where sho had lived previously. That is, if he ever got hold of iier again. But a half hour .latei Miss Baldwin stepped inlo the ice cream parlor and Philip was quick to seize his opportunity. Soon he was seated opposite Miss Baldwin consuming another hot chocolate. "And you really have been watching for me every day?" Miss Baldwin asked Philip again. "Every day," Philip assured her. Miss Baldwin simp'.Ted. "What a line yon have! Do you expect me to believe that?" "I want you to." Philip forced n emotional tremor into bis voice nd gazed across the table soul- ully. She's a silly little lool, lie loughl, and I'll never regret saving her. . . , "Will you have dinner with me' onight?" he suggested presently. "Tonight?" Miss Baldwin giggled. "Gee, you work fast." "Isn't that the way? When you ee what you want, isn't it best o go right after it—before some other fellow gets it first?" Miss Baldwin blushed under the ntensity ot his gaze. "Oh, I bet you've said that to ots of girls. . . ." "How about dinner?" "All right." "Will you meet me in the lobby of my hotel"—he named it—quite he best in Seattle—and Miss Baldwin raised an eyebrow ap- neciatively. "I'm apt lo get lost n thisj strange city. . . . That is, f you don't mind?" "Oh, no, I don't mind. 'Whal'll [ wear?" She asked il anxiously. "Wear? Oh, anything. What's the matter with what you have on—that's a pretty dress. . . ." "Oh, this rag? I mean, shall come formal?" "Formal?" "Yes. Don'l you wear a tuxedo lo dinner in the hotel?" "Suppose we don't dress tonight . . I've only been here a few days, you see, and my trunk hasn't arrived." 'Oh." Miss Baldwin was a trifle disappointed. "What time, shall I come?" "Seven o'clock?" "All right. I'd better run along now and get a manicure. ..."

"Am I late?" sho asked coyly. "No, indeed. And you lool lovelier every time I see you. He led the v.'ay inlo Ihe dinin room. "I've reserved this tnbl over in Ihc corner. Il's a nic quiel spot." > "Quiet?" Miss Baldwin repent ed in dismay. "Isn't there danc ing?" "You don't really want to danci do you?" "Well—I thought—" "Suppose we have our dinne first, then \vc can think of dancing later. Or would you ralher sec a show?" Miss Baldwin smiled coquellish- !y. "I just love to dance," she murmured. "Dancing H shall be, Ihen." And it \vas not unlil they were dancing in (he grill, four hours later, that Philip managed lo iach the matter uppermost in hi; ind. "I can't imagine a girl like you,' e said, "wearing herself out as eeretary to that fierce old ty. ant." Miss Baldwin laughed. "Oh, il n't so bad," she replied. "J gel aid well, and the hours arc lort." "But that Miss Greeley — r hew!" "You have to have a pull with er—" 'So I imagine.

' "My uncle is her attorney," I Philip went on. "A 1 ' grandfather [ in California left quite an estate —and believe me, Joan could use 1 little of it right now. It so happens that her mother was disowned when she married—you the old story—and'now we lave the job of proving lhat .loan really is the old man's grandchild. The only way we can do it, .ot course, is lo trace her history! back, and school records help." ! "And Greeley wouldn't give it i to you?" j "Nope.

OUR BOARDING HOUSE With Major Hoopla <w 'or several years before definite signs of the attack on the heart became evident. No child suspected of bavin? rheumatic fever should ever be al- owcd out of bed until his tcm- icraturc has been normal for a least two weeks or more. In rheu tic fever the whole heart ma; be inflamed, including the pericardium, or membrane which .surrounds Hhc heart; the muscle o£ the heart, or the lining of the heart. As these changes take place, there may also be deformities in the heart valves, in which case signs of damage such as arc represented by murmurs may be detected by the trained ear of the physician. In order to compensate for the damage to the heart, the tissues may enlarge and the muscular walls become stronger, The heart has to pump more blood at each stroke to make up for the blood that flows back into (lie heart .through the damaged valves. 1 < • ' ' • As has already been said, no single germ is known today to .be the cause of rheumatic (ever. Many physicians are inclined to tcllcve that this condition develops not- only from an invnriing germ, but also from special sensitivity to Ihc products of the germs, to ditTcrcnccs in living conditions, or to other factois.
