Save the Woman's Club 11 is scarcely conceivable thai the .Woman's club should fail in ils appeal for funds to prevent loss of its club building through iVwclusure. While the clubhouse i> technically the property of the club, in actual practice it is the property of the en- tiro community, and tin campaign to save it must be regarded with that in mind. For years civic and social organizations and groups of all kinds have made use of the building, paying no rental or at most only a nominal sum sufficient itrj cover the expense of lights and janitor service. Blylhcville has no other public cr semi-public structure available for the many worth while uses to which the Woman's clubhouse is put. The sum required is no! large. 11 the people of the community will respond generally the building can be saved at no large cost to anyone. Gaining Momentum The public works program, which got under way slowly, Is picking up speed; as it does its ultimate object seems to grow mightily in size. Washington correspondents are reporting that NHA economists are working on a plan under which the federal government migU spend more than §13,000,000,000 in the next couple of years on slum clearance, rehousing, grade crossing elimination, and similar devices. The major payt of this work, it is' claimed, ultimately would pay for itself. Meanwhile, enormous sums would bo poured into the channels of trade, and then something like 4,000,000 men would get steady jobs. The magnitude of this proposal would have dazed us a y!!-:r ago. Now it doesn't. We are in a deep hplc and we must make stupendous efforts to' get out of it. A Rare Tribute An interesting footnote to the operation of the NKA is supplied in the report filed the other day by the National Coal Association, .which finds— after two months of code operation in the soft conl fields—Unit things are JUT OUR WAY a whole lot IjeUw than liicy were, and which pledges its meinliiM'.s to co-operate fully in the code program. "This coding business is no longer u theory," nays C. 13. 11 unlit ss, executive secretary of. the associulion. "The name-calling stage is )>a«l. We fate a condition, and it is up to the coal operators to co-operate or cloru up." And he adds: "It's easy to have hoi lits and cold chilis atjoul this whole code business, but, while having the hitler, one should not .forget the chills that traveled up and clown the spine last spring." This testimonial, from an industry which did not li'nil it wisy to accept all the ailministratitjn'.s suggestions about codification, is a pretty good tribute to the efl'ecliviMiess of the Blue Eagle. SATURDAY. DECEMBER 9, 1933 SIDE GIANCES By George Clark J K. K. K. Again! Samuel Untermeycr, New York attorney, charges thai Uie old Kit Klux Klan 1ms been revived tu aid in the spread of Na/i propaganda in thii> nation. . Whether it be true or false, this charge at least is not surprising. Fascism and Ku Kluxcry are spiritual brothers, whether or not they Ijave an actual material connection. Each walks abroad with intolerance as one crutch and ignorance as another. Their ideals and their methods arc similar. And, by the same lok'::i, that gives us a chance to appraise Uie extent of Germany's present misfortunes. Imagine this'country turned over lock, stock and barrel to an outfit like the Klan, and you gel a notion of what the people of Germany are up against. "You sec, ihy father was a railroad man."

XOW CO ON WITH THE STOBV CHAPTEU XXVII 'T'HE death of Al Drugan, known ^- to be a close .friend of Tracy King's, brought the King murder mystery into ..blazing headlines once more. On street'toniers and at dinner tables .little else was talked r.t. Newspaper -.Columns devoted to "letters to the editor'? lengthened by incbea; Why, indignant letter-writers' demanded. hRd tbe police • not solved this crime? Why had they not apprehended the murderer? How could honest, law-abiding citizens feel cafe in tbeir homes at night when sucli criminals were at large? There were newspaper accounts, loo, bintlng that the "accident" in which Drugan met nfs deatli was something far more sinister. Captain-McNeal had refused to be quoted on the subject, but many others knew tbe facts. ilannislcr and J. Randolph Galney talked it over, sitting In a corner ot the Post'city room. "What gets me," Gainey declared, "is tbe fact that whenever a piece of news breaks you man- ase to be there oefore it happens. Not just afterward but oefore! Tim's what 1 can't understand.
