Prospects Jbr Meti Work Bfefoi-e we can get finally straightened out 0'ii Hie pfoblcfn of unem»loy- mciit.'wc might as well face the fuel t.hat;tlie.fe .is a lot of it which isn't- renlly cliic to the depression. ' This kind of unemployment simply arises from a gradual tightening ii|> iii the world of jobs; a process which you can attribute to increased efl'U ciency, to machines, to the increasing rigors of a more competitive business era, or to anything else yon choose, but which is kee'ping a good many willing mCn off the' payroll no matter whitt you call it; Here is a sample case, which iviusl be representative of a pretty substan-' tial hiimb'tr amovi£ the annals of our unemployed. There is a man of 45 or GO in a large city in the middle west wild lost his job a couple of years ago. It was neither a very good nor a very bail job—just an average white collar position that paifl perhaps 950 a week am! kept the man in decent comfort. It was partly (he man's own fault that he lo'st the job. He made one of those bhmnders that average people rtiake every so often, aiicl the boss got sore arid fifed Him. it was the sort of thing tiiat sometimes leads to firing aitd so'metim&i it doesn't; it all <lc- pen'ds on how the boss happens to feel. In this case thfe boss happened to feel wrong. , ; Anyway, this man lost his job, and he set oiit to get another. H-? has been' trying. for two year's, (the! he Hasn't 'siicceeded yet. He has failed, not bc- eause of tliat moderately black mark on his f'e'cWd, but simply because there haven't been any jobs opcri for him. the vacancies he might have filled have been occupied by men a little bit yOimgeV, a little mofie energetic^ a little bit more -'ancient. s So lie is still in the market "for a job, and he would have starved to death long since if it had not been for the WPA. That organization' has given him a series of jobs (if you can call them jobs) and lias kept him alive. He is a sort of time-keeper on soine WPA project now, and what he Is going to do when the Wl'A finally is discontinued he has no faintest idea. And the point is. that this luckless chap must be representative of a pretty large group of the unemployed. He isn't such a terribly good worker, and yet he is nobody's"dlirnlicll. either; lie "is well past his you!h, and yet he is capable of yours of hard work; he is willing enough, ami pathetically anxious to get the sort <>( job he is trained for—and lie just cau"( land one. That sort of thing hasn't much to do wjth the depression. This man wasn't fired because of the depression; it isn't (lie depression that Is keeping him from getting H new job —except, perhaps, indirectly, in that economic pressure furres employers to demand more from job-holders than they used to. What's the answer, for men like him? Are we going to have to have a permanent work-relief program, in Rood years and bad, to ta'i-e for the people who drop out of the procession and can't lind (heir way back in'.' Using It is probably just as well that the State Department rejected the pfopo'sal of the Cuban government that the U. S. join with other nations on the American -conf incuts; in aii oiler to mediate the civil war in Spain. In a note to the Cuban government, the State Department said that such an aclion would he contrary to this government's policy of noninterference in the internal affairs of other nations. ' That Spain's civil war is slriclly an "internal affair" is perhaps open to a good deal of doubt, those days, jiul Hint (he whole Spanish situation' is a dangerous mess that Uncle Sam can very well keep his hands off. of is not open (o any doubt at all. The Slate Department would seem to have taken a stand that most Americans will applaud heartily. TntnsiiiiM in Spending The part that heavy government -spending plays in business revival is illustrated in the recent aunouncc L mcnt at Washington that bids arc wanted for completion of Grand Coulee dam and power plant. To finish this colossal jot), the government is going to have to buy more than 7,000,000 barrels of cement .-uid some GO train-loads of steel ami machinery. Those orders arc going to have a lot to do with keeping some industries up near the normal level of activity during the next few months. And when you .stop to think about it, you can see that the job of ending government spending will have to be done pretty carefully. It w ill" have to be dove-tailed with a rcsnnrpiioh of heavy spending by private induslry, or the transition wit) g ; vc us quite a It is Eood for us to have frcErtom of speech but we havr- to learn to take Ihe criticisms that come wilh it and not lie v m!>[1e bttlcr.- Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt.

CHAPTER XVII ^LAN hn<J left Jill in a mood of despair, swept at times by cold fury and a burning jealousy. It \vas really all over. His love for Jill had changed to hate anc! contempt. Tonight, Jill had pretended she sli)] loved him in order to bring him to hef announcement parly. It had amused her to have a plodding painter witness her triumph and prestige. A lovely princess surrounded by net court. And more than that, she had wanted lo humiliate him fearfully because ho had despised her favors. He let himself into his studio wilh shaking fingers. It was still cozy and warm here, wilh embers from (ho fire stil! glowing. Yet unutterably Jonely. He stood for a moment gazing down dully at a half-finished portrait on the easel. How cold and unappealing the lady on the canvas was, despite the lovely lino of Ijer Ihroat and the graceful curve oJ her shoulder. A woman of the imagination. What he needed was reality. He had been a victim of illusions too long. Visualizing Jill as some sort of lovely, laughing saint. And attributing all sorts of. devilish impulses to Ardath. There Was no doubt that a deep and dangerous fire glowed in Ar- dnth. But she was a samt compared with Jilt. He laughed mirthlessly. Some day he would paint Ardath in a new light. And then he would <3o a companion picture of Jill, as it sort of Delilah. He would like to do it now. Oil ah impulse, he crossed to the desk and ran his hand into one of the pigeon-holes. He slated down at the card and the telephone number. Ardath would come if he called her. Tonight she could lift him to feverish heights as an arlist, even though she left him cold as a man. He would have lo love a woman to be stirred by her. And ho would never love any woman again. Kc put (ho card back, wearily. It was ridiculous—indicating the disorder In his mind—to believe Ardath could help him now. That He groaned. * * * PHE doorbell shattered his unhappy thoughts. Alan went into the front room ind opened the door. An icy draft of air, Accompanied by a flurry of snow greeted him, A girt stood there, muffled against the weather. Her turban ,vas spattered by snow. The lur collar of her coot was turned up close nboul her face. For a moment, his heart stood still. "You're letting me freeze," came low, throaty voice. "Can't you make up your mind to invite me Alan swung the doov wide. The light fell on Ardalh Holm, it was almost us though she had materialized from his thoughts. He smiled a little, thinking how useless his decision had been. Here she was. "Surprised to you?" see me, aren't Alan slml the door. "Yes," he answered. Ardalh tool; off her small, snow- powdered hat arid tossed it on a chair. "Please help me with my coat." She moved close to him and Alan slipped the coat from her shoulders. What ah amazing creature she was. Coming to a man's apartment at this hour of night, and evidently expecting to remain awhile. "1 like this!" Ardath sank into a low chair near the five. "Say, it really feels grand after that blizzard out there." Stiffness slid from Alan in a swift surge of sympathy. These girls who battled for a living had a rough time of it. No doubt of that. "May I fix you something hot?" he abked. Her lips parted in a wide, amused smile. "I don't,mind. I'd like a cocktail, if you', have "the makings about." <t * » TN her lap/was a sheet o£ news-' paper,/closely.folded. After a moment,/she. uh Jomedjit and handed it to.him. Alan'took thc.'pap'er, i'Jill's face smiled at him. "Did you covno here-just to:show me that?" lie.'asked roughly,!pain in his voice* "No. I/came/earlier and!'trie place wasfdai-k. : Then I went to a show. When 11 came out-the newsbojjfe wercxcrying out something about hpr party, and an|no\inc-?n* her •engagement.;-' I got a pa#er and brought it along:" '"" "4'd rather/not talk abotitther," AJan.said inia dull tone. "So you'd rather not .talk about her! With me, you mean'." I- Ardath's gYay eyes were, blai^if;. Fury had painted bright banners' in her cheeks, < Her lips hsd part7 ed lo reveal'u flash ot white teeth'. Alan was staring at her strangely. If he could only transform Ardalh with a brush. Paint her wilh a softness and gentleness sho had never revealed. And, para-' doxically, paint Jill with a cruel deception showing in her smiling eyes. "Look here. .It's ridiculous to quarrel. I've a better idea." Instantly, anger disappeared. Ardath smiled. "Have; you? What is it?" "Will you pose for me?'.'.: She laughed. ''So, that's what , yoii meant. Of course I will. .How do yon want me? ' Without All or AIL together?" "All together, if you mean fully. dressed," Alan replied coldly, ARDATH followed him into the, hack room, where he arranged his easel and tubes with professional precision. 'Funny to see a man painting in evening clothes," Ardalh said, suddenly. A malicious note was in ler voice, "Maybe you had planned 0 go to the Wehtworihs arid then changed your mind. It's not to even how. Bon't let me in- .errupl any plans." "Will you please sit in that carved chair, turn slightly toward Now look at me, and don't talk." Alan's tone was like ice. Ardath sat down, settled back jracefully and turned slightly, her strange eyes slanting to meet Alan's gaze. She wouldn't talk. She would look :d him! Quite dispassionately, Alan wound about Ardath's shoulders a splendid scarf of ivory silk, shot through wilh shining silver threads, which completely covered the cheap green blouse she wore. Ardath resented his cool composure, his casual touch. If only he were not so handsome, shfe could malch his indifference with her own. But there was something that pushed her aside; his strange ab-. sorption, his strained, white face. She could have screamed out angrily: "You touch me as though 1 were a figure in a glass-case. I'm human." When Ardath'j glowing eyes met his, Alan thought: "That's the look! The fcmme fatalc look. The devastating fire that burns men who come too near." It was going to J>o :diHicult to cbarigc that- sultry 'glow into a faintly glenm. (T6 Be Continued) scothing loticns to bring about a cure. From that time oh everything possible must be done, to prevent a recurrence of the con- ciition. Chart Compiled for 3-Minute Eggs In Plane SAN FRANCISCO (UP) -i When ; should a three'-miiiiite egg be i boiled more than three, minutes?; Wher, (he egg is 1,200 Icet in the air, en- route from San Francisco! to Honolulu in a Clipper plane. ' A board of inquiry has reached that decision after n formal investigation. It all started because stewards aboard trans-Pacific dip- jie'rss couldn't decide just h6w long a three-minute brciiktasl c'gjs should be hoi!cd when the stevta'rd. mid the eyg wci-e iip ab'oi'c the clouds. Engineers at Pan America's Alamecin base took up the question, to-wit: "What is the relation of altitude to the achievement of ten- sile strength, by boiling, of an ess?" The engineers produced charts which ivlll be posted in' galleys of all ciiijpe'rs. The charts sho"v/, by graphs of altitude pressures,' that if a passenger between Sun Francisco and Honolulu orders a "three mini-te egg." it sVioiilfl be boiled three add orth-lialf minutes if the plane is 5.CCO feet arid four and one-half minutes if it is 12,000 feet. , ' Layman Tools Used Ih Bone Surgery Case PHILADELPHIA ,(UD—Physicians at OstcopathiC Hospital hero were forced t;i set aside (heir sci.- enlific surgical' instruments re- cdnliy and use inslcad a set of carpenter tools to perform a delicate bone grafting operation. Mrs. Lillian Tapplny 60. sufjcrscf a broken arm in ah automobile 'accident abo'iit a year and a half ago. The bone never set right bccailsc of" injured nerves. Drs. Edward G. Drew, Car! Frey 1 and Robert Warden, reverted to i the use of n common cold chisel. j a hammer, electric saw and drill to take a piece of bone from her right leg and graft it (o her useless arm. With the saw. the physicians cut away two grooves in the woman's leg paralk-1 to the shin bone. They used the chisel aha hammer to lift out a splinter of bone. 6 inches ton^antl a half-inch thick. This piece was then fastened to the injured arm. Throughout the operation, Mrs. Tappin was under an anesthetic. I'clfiflcti Fftl-csl Attracts Many PETRIFIED FOREST, Ariz.
