It's the'Third House' Thai Is Dangerous , ; ,U yo.y conld get the sevenlh .son of a seventh son off in a corner and ask him, man to mini, what the. next great e ,i)o](tical reform in the IJnited Stales was going to he, he would probably tell you (hat it would:involvo aclop- : lion of the one-chamber plan by state legislatures. This idea, which Senator Gee-rue W. : Norn's put over single-handed in Nebraska, seems to be taking hold everywhere, for the excellent reason that it is a completely logical and sensible proposition. <. The weaknesses O f democratic-KOV- .criimeiil arc nowhere more apparent 'than, in the average state capitol. State government has grown expensive, inefficient, and unwieldy, i To a large exteiit this is because we 'clung to a device invented by the British back in the days when the power of the throne was a thing to be feared. •In theory, the'British House of Commons and House of Lords represent very .'different groups;-,- The former gets its authority from the- people, the latter from the crown. Working side by side, they are supposed to act as checks on each other so that neither class can legislate to the detriment of the other.'• * * * Because of that theory, lh e American state legislature jitis":.lwo houses. All reason for the division lias Vanish- erf; "what "we have now is'best •"described by "Senator Morris, who calls the two-chamber legislature "as useless as a wagon with live wheels." . "You ca.itnot have « two-house legislature," says the senator, "without in reality having three, for the conference committees that must be set up to iron out differences between house and senate constitute a third'body.' "Moreover, it transacts its business in an un-American and undemocratic manner. Its meetings are held' in secret; there is no such thing as a roll tall, and there is no record of its proceedings. * * * "A bill once referred to a conference committee cannot become law unless it is agreed to by a majority, of the conferees.. Thus it is within'the power of the conference committee, in OUT OUR WAY • secret arid without a record vote, «bso- .luteiy to prevent legislation and to Jdll or to fiHxlify at its pleasure and proposed legislation wJihfn its jiiriBdlf. lion." The levee which this ?jvca tu special iiilercsls to block legislation designed for protection pj" all dlizeiis is too obvious to need comment; .so, too, is the opening which it gives to all kinds of political chicanery hmt thiml/,|e- (ARK.X .COUKIER NEITS Once the public awakens to the merits of the ^iiiBlc-chn'mher plan, it is u safe IjcL that state after .state will follow the lead of Nebraska. Why the 'Heart Balm' The move to oi^law the "heart balm" lawsuit, initiated in Indiana by an intelligent wuiimn leyi.slator, sucmu to he spreadinif. A .similar bill i s jiend- iiiK in the New York legislature, and Senator SlcNabe, its sponsor, says that alienution of affection ami breach of promise suits "in many instances border on blackmail." ^ 'Hint itj a mild and sensible comment. Consider, for instance, the suit recently died in u niicldlowcslern court by a . younj,' woman who wants ? 100,000 from her former boss for In-each of promise. According lo ) 10 r suit, jYom 1928 to (he end oi: 1<W the promised to marry her. At [ho cud of 193'J lie chant'ed his m.ind. Uy her own admission, this .voting woman played along with her boss for close to six years. Any jjirl intullijfenl and sell-resijecfing enough to make her own way in the world ni^hl have been expected to smell a rat long before the boss broke the bad news. Offhand, would you say that heavy monetary damages are justified in such a case? Work Versus Money ( 10ugene Grace, who drew down $3,- 'IKS'J.OOO in bonuses from the Uethle- liem Steel Company during the war years, tells the senators who. are investigating Hie munitions business that to' pay an industrialist an army officer's pay in wartime would just 'naturally disrupt everything. "Greatest efficiency comes from having the individual interested in the results of the work he performs," he said; adding that nothing had ever been invented that would make men work as hard as the lure of money. 1 One wonders if Mi: Grace has not done himseii and other industrialists an injustice. Tho army used some of our greatest industrialists in France (hiring the war, giving them Ihc pay and emoluments of colonels and brigadier generals, and got a tremendous amount of highly efficient work out of them. It is a fairly safe but that it would have got the same kind of service out of Mr. Grace himself. The challenge of'the job itself can be ; , m0 rc potent incentive than the fattest of bonuses.

When there is eadachc as reauH of infection of ic sinuses, the pain is due to slim- lution of the branches of certain orvcs.
