MONDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1937 anyway?" And the answer is out before you know it. Most of us have a pretty sorry gap between ideals and practice. We know what we ought to ho, and we know that we don't conic very close to it in daily life; but we tell ourselves that when I he emergency comes we will j,a>t hold of ourselves itiul rise to meet it as wo should. Which is where we kid ourselves pretty badly. For life briiigs us these emergencies without warning, and they arc past before we know they hiive conic. And ever after, we have to live with the picture they reveal. Add Test Reveals Human Shortanning One of the'most disconcerting- things about, life is the way it will loss: an utterly unexpected challenge in a man's face every now and then. Without the least warning, it can present a situation whicli, in the twinkling of a» eye, will force a man to reveal himself for what he really is and not what lie-thinks he is. Consider, for instance, the Ihhitf that happened the other day in Ml. Clemens;'Mich. . .A; youiii; mother went into a store to'-.sljop, leaving her car parked at the curb with her 4-year-old son in the front scat. The car was parked on an incline, and somehow the brake became loosened; wlieu the woman came out of the store, she saw the car rolling off downhill, headed straight toward a river. Two young men were standing on the street. She screamed to tbom for • help. They looked blankly at the moving car, said, "What can we do?" 'Two other men heard her screams. They made for the river without asking questions, went right into it, and got the frightened 4-year-old out of the car unhurt, at some risk to themselves. '.'•The. whole'business lasted perhaps half a minute, from start to finish. When that half-minute began, there were four-; men on the street, all of them, presumably, reasonably well satisfied with .themselves. When the half- miuiUc .emjed; all four of them had ' -been' through an acid lest. Two of them had flunked pretty badly, and •liiid—to; carry with them the rest of their lives—the uncomfortable Itnovvl- \ edge that they were neither as brave nor. as energetic a, 1 ; they had supposed. Now the point of this incident' is that like most of life's tests, it came so unexpectedly that the people who were being tested bad no time to make up their minds what they were going to do. We could all be brave; and .noble fellows if wo. had time to nerve ourselves for the ordeal in advance; to marshal our "better natures," call up our rccsrves of moral and physical courage, set our teeth and plunge in with due resolution. But life doesn't always give us time to do that. U taps us. on the .shoulder and says, "Answer, quick now—what sort of bird arc you, Publlcnlion in this • column of editorials from other ncwspa|>crs <locs not necessarily mean endorsement but is an acknowledgment of interest In the subject, 1 ; discussed. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Because Lynching Has Gone Unpunished The Wagner HiiU-lynchlnrj bill which provoked a filibuster by Southern senators on the second day of (he special session contains provisions obnoxious to the South 'nnd of doubtful justice. It would (xpose any stale, county or local peace ollicer who [ailed lo prevent a lynching to u felony prosecution in the federal courts, where In clftct the burden of proving (hat he hud not been derelict. In his duty lo protect, a prisoner would be placed on him. U would threaten any county or city where n lynching occurred will) punitive damages of S2.0CO lo 510.000. Under tlie terms of the bill l j ulaskl county, for example, must thus be /Tiled if u lynching mob from some other county should briny its viclirn here, But (he House at Ilic last session overwhelmingly paired a mc.ibure similar in all essentials lo Uie Wagner bill. It seems to be practically ' certain that Mr. Wngner can find enough supporters In the Senate to pnss his bill If it comes lo a vclc there. Its defeat by filibuster Is weakened by the position of the bill high ou Uie Senate calendar under an agreement entered into near the close of the regular sEssion, which will.carry ever to the regular 1038 session if the measure should not be acted on at the special scwlon. It Is one thliijj to threaten '.o tic 'up Senate business for n few weeks late in a session; another to attcnipt to tie it ii» for six or eight months nu end. But if a federal anti-lynch1n» law is enacted.-1 he South itself' must bear n portion of the blame. To say that is not to impugn ths • sincerity or Ihr: considerable success of the Souths own, mobilization of its better -sentiment against lynching. This mob crime tins been greatly reduced In frequency. The number of Instances in which detcrniincd peace officers have protected prisoners has hcon more striking j-enr by year. J)ul in tlic mailer of enforcing the law against, lynclicrs yho had accomplished tlirir purpose Ihc record Is bail. 'Hie rest of the country lias waited in vniit to sre some Southern slate man swiftly, surely ami successfully to prosecute, convict and adequately punish (i ic perpetrators of mob murder. That Ihc rtiflicullies of sucli action are not understood, pcrhajis cannot be understood, culsiilc Ihr South, makes no difference In the reaction in oilier .sections. A large body of s'.iilimcnl in other pails of Hie country bus become convinced that 'the South cither can not or will not punish lynching, and thai the federal government Iherctorc must and shall lake it in hand. -Arkansas Gazette, "I'll he late to school again, Mama, if you don't hurry »P with mv bike."

She jumped out of bed, startled. The others had eaten. Hades Jones and the younger man, Holli- iian, were already busy with the myriad details of making packs for the mules and horses. Boh Barry sat beside the parlor lamp, working with pencil and papers. "Morning!" he greeted her, rfieerily, "Sorry to haul you out at midnight, but it's a custom out here." She was embarrassed, but she covered it with a smile. "I'll get used to it—I hope. Please forgive me. But I really had no idea about the time to arise. And no alarm clock, except the roosters." They laughed at that, but she quickly spoke again. "Dr. Barry, 1 hope you believe me when I say I want lo work as well as put up the money for this trip. I admit I'm inexperienced, but—" He grinned at her. "Stout fellow! But take it easy, and learn as you go along. We'll divide up the duties when we get to camp, if you Ulre. There'll be a deal of book work, records and such. You can help there I know." "Can't I do something now? Today?." JTE thought for a moment before he answered that. "Why perhaps, you can. One item of equipment I overlooked yesterday is some clothing for the cook. I arranged for one before you came. He's an Indian, and he's to meet us at my shack. But nil redskins are penniless, Miss Lane. How'd it do for you to slip over to the store and get him some clothes and tobacco? Store opens at 6 o'clock." "All right," she agreed. She gave thought lo the matter while eating her breakfast. The meal, incidentally, was a. challenge. Mil Pclphry'apparently expected . a slight city girl to consume six enormous hotcakes, with butler and syrup; three Iried eggs; a plateful of biscuits, IrcsSi and hot; assorted cuts of beefsteak dipped in Hour and fried, with thick gravy beside them; a jar of squawberry jam; a mug—not cup—of cavalry-typo codec. 'Lissa thought it best not to appear surprised, but she wondered how fo keep from hurting Mrs. Pelphry's feelings. In thc end however, she found that she had done amazingly well. "Now come and I'll help pack your things for the trip," Ma suggested. "Thank you, they're all packed 1 mean—" She had given this detail no thought, really- Suddenb she remembered Uie very- smail bags assembled there by. Hades Jones and Hollirnan. For an absence of at least a month, she oil- served, they couldn't have - more than one change of clothing each. Wise Pvfa Pelphiy appeared to read her thoughts. "You won't really rx-cd much, honey," she counseled. "Just strong outdoor tilings.

The little intimacies of her routined life, she realized, would have to be sadly iltered. Silently she thanked herself, for the tenth time already, "or deciding not to bring a maid to Arizon;i. But she just hadn't given any thought to such sen-ices as the hairdressers, manicurists, ind her beloved'shower bath.'' - : ' When Ma was through with her; she looked fine. She wore cowboy denim pants—"they're most practical of all," Ma declared—and hiking boots, a mannish red shirt, and a real man's hat which Ma had given her with the promise that it would ward off the Arizona sun. "Great!" exclaimed Dr. Barry When he saw her.' "I was afraid you'd be a little—well, dudish. You know what I mean. But you look—" He swallowed. After all, he wasn't sure of himself now. Telf- ing a girl she looks cute and smart takes finesse anywhere, and Dr. Robert Wilson Barry was more at home with prehistoric ]X>!s and shards, abandoned caves and Indian signs. "He likes me," Mary Melissa" decided instantly. She hadn't even noticed what be was saying. But intuitively she sasv and appreciated his glow. In the Game fleeting moment she noticed that he himself was quite presentable, but he hadn't fooled her ?ny. Over tiic night he had managed lo get a hair cut and a shave, concessions to thc fact that his new partner was a woman. With Ihe storekeeper's help, she. purchased two paiv of trousers, two blue shirts, two sox and brogan shoes for the Indian cook. "I've made 'em generous size, ma'am," the store man said. "Most redskins are pretty fat herea- ''PHE men had bought and outfitted all thc saddle horses and pack mules, so that thc party was ready to travel soon alter noon. Mary Melissa was highly excited as they rode away. They wouldn't do all the 20 miles to Bob's cabin that afternoon, he.told them, but would camp en route. They could pick up the Indian cook there next morning with only a 10-minute stop, then proceed o'n • toward the : Montezuma'' raii^e and the clifl simple " that first dwelling. Camp was night, and although Mary ;>!eliss;i war; saddle sore next day, thc group rode on easily. Everybody lad slept well. In his mind Bob 3arry rechecked every detail carefully. He could think of no.item of equipment lacking. Old Hades lad proven a genius at oulfilu'ng. The Indian cook would complete be party's personnel. Bob Barry had already experienced one major surprise on this project, when M. M. Lane turned out to be a girl. Now, at his ranch cabin, fate look another dig at him. The Indian was wailing, as old Three Horses had promised. But—Uie young scientist halted in amazement—the redskin who waited there was not a man! "I am Honey Bee Girl," the ne\v eook announced. "Three Horses, my grandfather, say you want'one who cook thcc white man's food. I have learn in white man's school. I cook thes white ™2n's food. I am ready." Hades Jones, Bob Barry, Holliman, and Mary Melissa all were staring down from their horses at Ihe Indian girl—as slender and; pretty and wild-looking a creature as a mountain deer. {To Be Continued) OUR BOARDING HOUSE ^- A T^VOt-VIKJG DOOR VOKED UP TO A PVWAMO TO UTILIZE ~TH' MA.K!
