Hut it is worth while to look at some remarks made by Nathan L. Miller, ex- sjovernor of New York and now general counsel for United Stales Steel, at,-the launching of it 610-fool steamship" at Lorain. 0., the other day. This ship, the second giant carrier iHiilt.'this fall for y. S. Steel's subsidiary, the Pittsburgh Steamship Co., is large, up-to-dnte—and expensive. And Governor Miller truly remarked that U. S. Steel "is not preparing for the undertaker" when it builds ships such as "Construction of the ships," he added, "is only part of the corporation's capital expenditures in face of current depressing business condition.*;. United States Steel is expressing its confidence in business \iy keeping plants, fleets and oilier equipment in the highest state of efficiency to produce steel cheaply and pass on to employes, in the form of good wages, profits that are not^absorbccl by high federal taxes." Publication tn this column of editorials from other nevrspaiwrs does not necessarily mean endorsement but is im acknowledgment ot interest In the subjects discussed. Box Office FooibaU Whether it be true that the lioys on the University of Pittsburgh football team actually demanded cash on the 'Barrelhead- as a reward :for partjcipa- tion in a post-season game" is Jotne- thing for Pittsburgh to figure- out. But if they did, the affair reflects discredit on American university authorities generally rather than on I he boys themselves. • American universities have made football a professional .sport. It is foolish to deny this, when gate receipts are counted by the hundred thousand and an athletic department is offered 850,000 for one "bowl" game. ,Thal sort of money .simply isn't a part of amateur sport, and never will be. If .the boys who arc drawing that kind of money through the gate decide that they would like a little of it for themselves, who can wonder at it? They may be confused about Iheir status as students playing a game for the fun of it—but the confusion is entirely the fault of the university authorities who let the game get out of hand. Benefit of Drunkenness On the night of Aug. 7 a young man nnd his 2-ycar-old son. walking in a street of Lowell, Mass., were struck by an automobile and instantly killed. The wife and mother, seriously Injured, is still under a physician's cure. In tho Middlesex Superior Court Nov. n the hit-an;l- itm driver was tried by a Judge, jury Irial having hcai mil ml. The defendant was acquitted of the draw of man.slnugliter and that of leav- >»;; (lie .seme of Hie accident. He \vns found guilty of drunkenness, drunken driving and of operating his car so as to endanger public safety. With a singular tenderness Die conviction «f drunkfnncs,i was placed on file. He (jot a fusriimtcd sentence of six months in Jail and was finrci S2GO on each of the other cUni'ijCX Ko ehenp is life In Lowell. 'Hie Judge said that inanFlanghtrr must result tram willful, wanton and reckless conduct. If Curry was: .so drunk that he could not formulate his will, con It bo :mid that he is guilty of being willful, wanton and reckless? 'Ihc .Mime rule applies to his leaving the scene of the accident. "He must have left, knowingly. He mum know what lie is doing at the time; This u KOIII- doctrine.

It was supremely delicious to Dob, but he had asked it in n spirit more o* comradeship than of love, doing the best he could to boost ner spirits. It had been a lingering hiss. And it had been warmly returned. He had wanted to kiss her again and again—to hold her fiercely and pour out the declaration of love which had suddenly enveloped him. But he must jt fair. He couldn't take advantage of the girl under stress of. circumstance- lilie this. The thought made him a hit more formal lor a half hour or fo, but their mutual danger soon enveloped them. Then he fried singing. "Sailing, sailing, Over (lie bounding waves—" His big baritone filled the un- auditorium.

It hurt his throat . some, but he thought it juslified. Anything .low seemed bettor than just sitting, or eternally crawling and feeling to no avail : 'Echo! Echo!" he called, because no had heard one. A faint repeat of it shot back at him. "That means we're in a pretty big room, % with some sort of Hat wall c.ppoJite," lie told -Zissa. They tried to crawl toward it, but they came repeatedly to the drop-off. -the .edge over which ihe lantern had fallen. Or perhaps another like it, they couldn't be sure. * * 4 JJOB threw some rocks. Many of them hit and bounded, hit and hit again, rolled and were quiet. It must be a long way clown, somewhere, the boy and girl sigrced. ; '!IEY DOWN THERE, ECHO!" Bob yelled. They listened, bill the phrases were too long. Only a jumble of noise reverberated. They sat- silent, in increasing if unspoken despair, holding hands again. A second or 'so passed. Then— "Hey! Hey!" A faint sound, an exclamation, came out of the darkness! Bob felt 'Lissa become tense, knew she had heard it too. His own heart was pounding. "Lissa!" he barely whispered it. Then—"HEY! HELP!" He yelled at the top of his lungs. It came back, but it was too. ns for an echo: "eh-eh-eh!" It was unnatural, weird. Bob strained to determine the direction. "Pray God it's coming from above!" he said, squeezing 'Lissa's arm. "It may be help from up there, just echoing and seeming to come from below us!" It might havo been but—it wasn't. "No! NO-no! NO-O-O!" The last was almost a scream, as Mary I Melissa spoke it. "NO, BOB! It's not help! We're—crazy or something. I saw a light Hash—away : below—in imagination I guess. H!" She was sobbing, and he held ner close. He shut his own eyes, tightening his muscles trying to regain control. He knew their trouble. He had lieard of hallucinations that bedevil people facing slow death 'rom hunger and thirst. Thirst takes rapid toll in the arid West country. Bob's own ionsuc felt .•cry thick, and his legs were ,veak. How much more 'Lissa must be mffering, lie knew. Unashamedly, then he kissed her, and she kissed him back. "I want yot: to know some» , hing—before we lose normal con- :rol entirely!" he whispered it fiercely. "Yes, Bob?" i "I love you, Mary Melissa. H lave always loved you, I guess." ''Kiss me again, please. I have oved you—longer than always'." He held her, patted her. "We'll slick it out as long as humanly possible, sweetheart. I im not afraid to die. I—am sorry, for you. But the end comes somewhere, somehow, no matter what we do in life. If this is ours, I can die happy now. But I wisli I might have loved you longer." "It's—all right," she whispered. 'I am not afraid. I have you." Hunger. And bodily weakness. And the intense thirst, the choking, knotting of throat muscles. Singing in the cars.
