World Taken for Granted The Mediterranean world lias K"t- over the bad attack oV jitters which afflicted it a few months ago. Not long since, the air. around that historic sea was charged wilh tension aiul nervous expectancy. War was in the wind, and a breakdown o)' inler- ualiotial law, and strong-arm tatties of high and- low degree, Everyone luuk- ed ahead to Uic worst. Now, says Anno O'llare iMcCoruiidi in a dispatch to the New York Times, the tension is eased. The war .scare has been raised so often lhal people are no longer seared by it. Tl\e stale of tension has come to seem normal. People have stopped worrying. But this is not good news. On the contrary, as Mrs. McCormick points out, it is just about the worst news possible. For it means that people arc getting hardened to cruelty, lawlessness and fear. They arc taking for granted a world in which all of the old securities havo ceased to exist. It is worth -while lo ponder over this fact for a moment, for it i.s perhaps the most dismaying fact on the horizon today. Consider the state of aftairs on (he Mediterranean. Warships are palroliiig the sea lanes on a war-time basis. Hidden submarines lurk in sheltered coves, to dart'out every so often and sink unoffending merchant ships. Bombing planes , cruise in the skies, dropping' down ever and again, to blast soine peaceful carrier of 8W \ S . Every naval base on that sea, every fleet ami, squadron and flotilla, is kept constantly ready for action. On shore things are liUlo better. At least three great natioiix, technically at peace with the world, are up to their necks in a war that is tearing Spain to bits. RumArs of revolt, of international plots and of muLiny are rife all along the African coasi. tn Palestine uu ugly three-sided %ht is taking its toll in murders, guerilla cll . counters, and bombings. And in no Mediterranean land have the common people the slightest assurance that they may not be called to arms day atter tomorrow. Yet it is this situation, as violent «ml unsettled as something out of the Huddle ages, which people arc Citing used to. Now the point j s tllfe: in all m . (fel ,. )y, civilized world, .such a slate of affairs does not exist. Order and civilization go hand in hand; international anarchy such as is evident in the Mediterranean today can apitear only when the structure of society is in a state of collapse. Yet, as Airs. McConnick remarks, people have grown used to this anarchy. 11 seems to be tho norninl condition for the world of 19S7. And .a world which accepts such a condition »s normal is obviously a world that lies on the crumbling edge of the abyss. Luhnr Gelling tiope (hat the C. 1. 0. and A. K. of L. negotiators will eventually reach a compromise which will end the disastrous split in labor's ranks seems to be jrrowinjr brighter. And that i.s jioutl news for all the country. Apparently the conferees have the Kimd sense to sec that there must be a ccmpvomiso of some sort, with each side retreating substantially rl'om its original position. The warfare which bad bcru tfoiiij,' on through most of Ibis ycnr iv«s becoming ruinous to both sides; continued long enough, it probably would have robbed labor of most if not all of the great sains it h«s made in the last lew years. There shoijld Jbe ample ; room in this country for'' both the craft and industrial unions. There should be enough good sense among the leaders of tho two groups to see that some industries are fitted for (be one type of union and other industries are fitted for Ihe other type. It is encouraging (o ;,-cc that an honest attempt at compromise is at last being made. .What About Blylhevi'llain?

In most Instances calluses or corns on the feet are as.s^mlrti with badly filling shoes. They arc found at the points at which (ho shoes arc most likely lo rub the fool—namely, on the ends of the Iocs, on the upper sides of the Joints (particularly in people whose shoes are loo short), nnd between 'he toes when the shoes arc IOD narrow. A com or callus will become painful just as soon as it involves u nerve ending. There arc M> mans retnciUe.s t or corns and calluses that almost everyone tries his own corn cure. 'Ihe ordinary conunerclal corn cure i*> a mixture of salicylic acid with sonic ether subsuuioes • which will [ hold Ihe salicylic acirl in solution or ! susfwnsjon so ti,i,t it can act over i n long period O f time on the thick- cnorl sV-in. The salicylic arirl will soften lh c skin .so that it will come away. Many people year after year "lit i away the IOJK of corns or'ralluscs , but they immediately recur because the causative mechanism has not been controlled. A specialist in disturbances of the feet will usually change the shoes or apply pads, braces or wedges so that lh c pressure win be taken off the spot at which the com or the callus appears. Removal of this pressure will usually result in a dlsanpcaraticc or the corn at that noint. t * * Soft corns Detiveen the tors, most frequently between the fsnrlh and fifth toes, arc oltcn associated with an Infection by the ringworm fun- aas. The use of short and narrow pointed shoes pushes „,,, lu ,, c (oc ! backward and produces friction between the joints cl Ihe (irsl bone of ' the fourth toe and the head of the first bone fo the fifth toe. i H Is possible to remove soil corns between these two toes by applyin" various treatments which, however" i may be painful because the tissues ; here arc so lender. Sometimes a -single treatment with vadiuni or the ; X-ray will bring about permanent relief. NEXT: Cold sores. . SVI.Vl.V K1WOX, on Mr***, Vri>ferJ:i}i Harry nnd hi. rm •lUnrcel uvi-r Inoui;)-. Suddenly < CHAPTER XXI 1. WENTWORTH had beci. startled oul of deep sleep by the sound of loud voices. And then, there was another sound Something had fallen in the room under her own bed. Her husband's study. She was out of bed, pulling a robe about her, slAvoring a little. She went to the door that opened into her husband's room and turned lhc knob. John was up. That was it. His bed had not been slept in. In lhc upstairs hall, she met Miss Dr-xloi- hurrying from tht other wing, looking like a little gray owl in her woolly wrapper her eyes round wilh alarm. "Then, you heard it, too" Miss Dexter whispered. "Do you think il might be burglars?" ."I don't think anything ot the kind,' Mrs. Wenlworlh snapped. 11 s 5 or C, almost time fov tlic ferviinls to come in. Burglars don t break in al Ibis hour. M-r \vcntworlh is up. He probably turned a chair over. Go back to your room before you wake everybody." ' Suddenly, she realized she was fighting a dreadful premonition of disaster. Barry had been drinking )ai-l night. When he was drinking he was always in an ugly mood. Suppose he had gone to his father's study— "Go back to "your room, Miss Dexter." Mrs. Wentworth spoke again wilh such cold finality in her voice that the secretary re- freaicd hastily, hurrying down the •all and into her own little nook like a frightened mouse slipping safely into its hole. Mrs. Wentworth wailed only until the secretary's door had closed and then hastened down lie slairs. Crossing the still shaaowed hall, she stood for a moment outside the door of the study. Then quickly opened it * * * JJARRY was standing as though turned lo stone, looking down ai a figure outstretched on the nig. An object, which she recognized dully as a heavy paperweight t| lat hcr husband had used W years, was in Barry's hand hes dead," Barry whispered. "It was his heart." And then as his mother's anguished eyes still held his: "Good heavens, mother! You don't believe I did (his! We had a row. Ho was talking about culling me out for a long while. I started toward him with this thing in my hand. I might have hit him it I had era- reached him. But before I got (here he fell, hitting his head—" "You must gel out of here now, Quickly ... and gel rid o£ that paperweight in your iiand." "But, mother, you can'!, you don't believe I did il!" "It doesn't mailer what I believe, Barry," M rs . Wentworth whispered. "You mustn't be found here. Leave the house. When I flash on the lights in the hall, slip up lhc back slairs lo your room Lock the door behind you. Get undressed." Barry's face, frozen with fear, registered for u moment before lie obeyed. » * » gHE summoned all lier strength, went over and bent to the still form. She placed her hand 01 he hand that lay outflung on IJn •US- She recoiled with a cry I vas true. was dead. Peopk • i i . , ° "*- d "- 1 L'opn night not behove what Barry said They might call it murder. Mrs. Wentworth shuddered vio ently as she remembered that sin nusl go through the quiet house open the back door for Barry leaving the lonely figure on the rug. But she was already doing it Passing swiftly through the hall unlocking a door. Then back, and on up the stairs, to the east wing bhe knocked on Miss Dexter's, door. "Miss Dexter! Miss Dexter!" It _,, inuj j-'c.^vui; 11 was her own voice speaking. "I'm frightened. I went to the bottom of the stair and called Mr. Went- woith. He doesn't answer. I'm afraid he's ill. You know his heart n't strong." Miss Dexter had put on the gray robe again. As tho thought of her employer's possible illness swept aside nervous fancies, she said pi-aclically: "Poor dear, and you were afraid to go lo the study l guess I upset you talking about Burglars. Don't worry. I suspect no went to sleep. Thai's all." We mus! go down," Mrs. Wentworth insisted. They iiad -reached the lower lloor, and she saw Mrs. Wenlworth reach automatically to turn the hal switch, Hooding the big room with warm light. V * t » "J^HE next moment they were standing in the open' study door. A scream rose to Miss Dex- tcrs lips, aivd died there, as Vhe Jell Mrs. Wentworth swaying against her; then aims clinging as ier employer slipped without 11 word to the floor. She bent over Mrs. Wcntwortli. There, her eyes were Huttcring open. She was moving. At least she wasn't dead, "I'm all righl," Mrs. Wentivorih said. She got to her feet and steadied herself by the table. "Get the servants, and then call a doctor for Mr. Wentivorth." "She doesn't know it's loo late lor a doctor," Miss Dexter thought. She looked back from the door. Mrs. Wenlworth was moving some papers on (lie desk. Arranging them neatly. It seemed a long time, hut the knew it was only a few minutes before Ihe study was filled with quiet, sober-eyed servants. And then, Howe!!, the second butler, was saying in a low but firm tone: "Nobody should go near him unlil the police conic. It might not have' been his hcarl. He's had a blow on the head." » * 0 MRS. WENTWORTH'S voice rang out wildly: "You mustn't say Ihings like that. The fall dirt that. There's no need for police." "I beg your pardon, ma'am. That may be tr (te or it may not be. But I wouldn't be satisfied, beg your pardon again, ma'am, until the police see him. Al least I'd like for Mr. Jack to sec him before he's moved." Mrs. Wcntworth nodded her head. She sank into a chair and covered her face with her lands. HI wake Mr. Jack und Mr. Barry," Miss Dexter said. "And Miss Jill, too, I guess. Oh, poor Miss Jill. She iaved him so." A few moments Inter she was pounding on Jack's door. And then on Barry's. Jack had bounded out of bed !". s Bn u. y> answc «-''ng 'he summons: Anything wrong, Miss Dexter?" "Your father's ill," Miss Dexter spoke mechanically. It had been more difficult to awaken Barry. "Drunk as usual " Miss Dexter muttered to herself. Hut finally, Barry's flushed face appeared at the door. "What's the idea of waking me at the crack of dawn?" he had queried, gruffly. "Your father has had a stroke or something," Miss Dexter told him bluntly, "ft lookr, pretty bad." At Jill's door, Hfiss D»xlcr knocked gently. Several times, But there was no answer She turned the knob quietly. The room was revealed in damty disorder. Jill's lovely dres* vas thrown carelessly' across a' chair. Her satin slippers, were iear.
