Lorce, heml of Die Ut-Oa- ware and Hudson railroad, told Hie New York Stale Chaml/tr of Commerce yesterday that aiwnclomnutit of the gold standard by the United Status was as great a breach of trust :is Germany's disregard of Belgium's nenlral- ily'i'n 1914. That statement, it appears, didn't quite go down even with the linnncicrs of which the New York slate chamber is largely comiwsed. The chamiicr voted for "restoration of « permmionl gold standard in the United Stales," but rejected a proposal for rc-estalj- •lishmont of the pre-Koo?ovelt standard of ?20.C7 per ounce of sold, aeknowt- cdgintf that such a move would bi: unwise at the present time mid iimk-r existing financial conditions. Thus il appears thai thu chamber condones Ihe "breach of tvnsl" which stirred Mr. Lorcc's riglueous indignation, and merely/ wunts the dollar tied to gold al some cleiinile and permanent level. What level? If it is' ndmiltcil that the gold value of Ihe dollar which was right in 1028 is nol practicable today, what assurance is there that any value that might be established today would be right a month, or n year, or ten - years hence? \ luma.v .not be jwssiblo to ruAore price lover; through manipulation of I lie vaiue 01 die dollar in levins of gold, as the administration is attempting, but it docs not necessarily follow'that a mimaged currency is not preferable to on« tied irrevocably to gold at any level. If it is possible t > achieve stability in the dollar's commodity purchasing power, which is Mv. Koosevelt's announced goal, then most of the people of this country will be well served and will have no occasion to worry about the fluctuations thai may occur in the dollar's value in terms of one commodity—gold. The Thiead We Live By The fearful and wonderful way in which human life exists in a universe which is forever hostile to it is shown graphically in the annual report of the Smithsonian Institution. Dr. Charles G. Abbott points out that the only thing that keeps the ullrn-violct rays of the sun from killing all mankind is a thin layer of ozone in the upper reaches' of the stratosphere. This belt of vapor is so nebulous that, if concentrated, it would be less than an eighth of an inch thick. Thin as it is, however, il keeps tho*.sun's rays from blistering us to death in short order. And Dr. Abbolt adds lhat if the layer were thicker, the ultra-violet rays would be cut oil' altogether—and in that ciii-e, loo, life would be impossible. Only the most delicate of hair-line adjustments make the existence of the human nice possible. | SIDE GLANCES By George Clark A National Danger SiiwildiiK on ii Niilio'.iiil Education Association program, Si'-'i'utary of the Interior Jlarolil Ickes dcx-lhres Unit "our schools oujflil to lju the hisl lo foci I lie pinch of economy," :it:d witnis Hint whilu 'some economics in the school system aru nccossary, we already have none a bit too far tilonit that road.

KOW UU OX WITH TIIK STOIIV CHAPTER XXXIU \.TORB than once Joan moved •"•*- toward the table wlicro the toleplione stood. H r.eld a strange fascination for her. Presently the telephone would ria£ nnd fihc would hear Dob's voice f I'm sorry." Or perhaps it woulil bo merely "Joan, I'm coming for you. Ee ready, will you?" Tliero wore never nny evasions with Bob. Ho scorned them. He would not say "Joan, may I come over?" when he know that she was waiting for him. She glanced down at Iicr wrtsl leu sfcetchily, watch. Kight o'clock, lie wns own roaianco just finishing dinner. There might be guests. She mustn't be so nervous, or impatient. She must wait! The telephone rang and flic ran to an&\vcr it breathlessly. But it was only a reporter Irom a morning newspaper asking about Pal and Ilarney and ab ut their marriage. Joan heard her voice, hard with disappointment, answortiis, "Jtut there aren't any more facts. It's all been in the papers already." She was trembling when Elie put down '.ho telephone. At S:30 Mrs. Blako suggested that tbcy go out to a movie. Sbe spoke cr.sualls', as though happiness were not trembling in the balance for Joan. All the king's horses could not have moved JoaNi trom •.' « vicinity of lhat tclephoao. At nine o'clock the living room which had worn such a cay, ox- pedant air oroopcd forlornly, like a woman deserted by her lover. Joan could not bear Ibe thought tha silence suggested, lioh must be comlngl $ler heart pounded nt the thought. Of coufse he would come. She cotildu't doubt that ho loved her, remembering the light in hb eyes, remembering his ttormy response to her whisper, "Vou found me!" I home the ring of a telephone was i | shattering the stillness. A voice answered and she heard her own voice speaking. Then, "Mr. Robert Westou has left New York." A dreadful pause. "How long will he bo away?" "I couldn't say. miss. He has gone on a yacht cruise." "A yacht cruise!" Joan stared at the telephone, not seeing il clearly. Alter a while she went nlo her bedroom, closed the door and began, mechanically, to undress. In bed she pressed her face against the pillow. Fighting hard against Hie sobs thai clutched ot lier throat, smothering them In her pillow. After a while, she gave herself over to her desolation, crying deeply, passionately, allowing the bitter tears lo come unheeded. Bob was not coming. Not ever! He had gone on a yacht cruise. Perhaps at that very moment he was dancing on a brightly lighted ship deck with D-.r'-ara Courtney. '"TWO amazing tilings hail liap- pencil iu the Waring home. A long letter had. conio from Joan, telling all about Pat's marriage to Barney. And an hour later a telegram was delivered which read, "Arrive tonight. Meet me. Love. Joan." Mrs. Waring was reaily to accept Joan's explanation about the romantic triangle. Joan had writ- leu sketchily, briefly about her j Itarncy. The ' whole affair had lacked reality] nud dcflnitencss. Now all that was clianged. .Mrs. Waring was glad lo think ot her little Pat safely, happily married! 1'at hail "done well," wonderfully \vcll according to Joan's descriptions. Barney lilake was a successful young >uslncs3 man, atlraclive and well- cducaled. Mrs. Wariug's eyes were sut- used with tenderness and pride. Hut what about Joan? Joan was coming home after making such a success with her singing. 1'at bad written all about that. Pat had said that Joan was a sensation, that everyone was talking about Stella, a little aw by Mr?.

Stella meant Robert Wc-slon. Mrs. Waf- ius had tiot ihought of him for a Join while. Hob had passed completely from the picture. Joan must h.7V2 forgotten him a long time refore. "It's traiti lime, Benny," Mrs. Waring called. "I'm ready." ilcnny put his head In Ibe door, his unruly hair smoothed down by extra brushing. His mother smiled at him. She was eager to sec Joan when her eyes fell upon Benny, looking •• much stronger.

"You'll never suess who just passed by. 1 '' Sara said. "Dick Thornton alirt his bride! They were married this afternoon and are leaving on a two weeks' honeymoon." "Dick married!" Mrs. Waring exclaimed. "Yes. I told him Jo5n was coming in on the New York train and he said to Rive her bis regflrds. Tho girl be married Is a culc llt- her voice.

In Hie \Variug home there was a Imsllc ot excited preparations.

Sbe would telephone Bob. Too much unhap- jylnesa had come about through pride and conventionality. She would say "Bob. plcaso come. 1 can't bear It If yon rton't."

She found tbn number ami dlal-^ :'fc Somewhere in tbat big with the oiled mop and the garden was shorn ot most of the late summer blooms. A blue vase which Joan prized was filled with blossoms and placed on the taolenear the window. A mild, sweet wind stirred rOffled curtains. At last, Mrs. Waring stepped back, surveying tbe bedroom. "H looks sweet enough for anybody," she decided, satisfied. Downstairs sne found Stella, busy at c»ko-maVing, perspiration standing out on her good-natured. plled. "No tic thing bin really not In Joan's ClRSS." Mrs. Waring was silent. Dick Thornton had been EO constant, BO ilevotcd to Joan for years.
