Workbench Clamor for Class, Serious thinkers have boon their boards 'thoughtfully of hitc siml crying that the great 'Anicriciin middle ilas-vis being fiiuoe/.cd nlnmsl lu dci'.th by the pressure of bard What they fail to ndil is that IV.'i.'rwik middle class has just been .•islriii;; for it i?ylakiii(? unto ils basoin ;i (jrwil many j'roplu who would be Jui|>i>ii!i- mul more •ff b|)Rrctis elsewhere. 'i'his fact was neaUv touched on recently by the publicist, William Fe:il|i- er, in an article in Nation's JJi,sine;;.s. In spite of unemployment, says Sir. 'Feather, the ii.'ilion today still'cn; from an acule shortage of skilled v?orkers, anc' the • shortage is gointc to be even more iicule in the near future. 'And why? Because the average rmiljilimi:: high school' lad of today has bis heart set on a dignified white collnr j'>b, ami .scorns the prospect of being an expert turret lathe operator,' a :ir.4- class pattern maker, a skilled machinist or anything that requires imuuia! labor. It isn't the ambitious high aclmol lad's fault. We have glorified the wliiiu collar man; as.Mr. Keallier remarks, wo have taught the younjr cliiip to look forward to a career rather than a job.^ lie feels that it would somehow fie disgraceful for him to wear overalls. The result of all this iji tbnt Hie swollen middle class i;-; jammed.. iviUi . people who simph- can't make a decent > living in their chosen occupu- t ion's. , We have penniless yotnig lawyers who wait 'with desperate anxiety for the practice that never materializes; hopeful young dentists who can lind no teeth to fill; salesmen by the score and the gross who skimp along on a hand to mouth basis, a scant jump ahead of the sheriff; clerks who get along on day laborers' pay; and a whole army of luckless mortals who try half a dozen jobs in the course of a decade, succeeding in none of them and eternally driven by the haunting fear of poverty. Yet all (he while the skilled h-ades .lack men, and the .skilled worker goes along happily and comfortably on an iuccme that would look like very heaven to these harassed white collar misfits. What's the answer? Sir. Feather suggests, simply, that we devise uni- (ARK.)' COURtER NEWS forms to take the place of overalls; and before you start laughing, just consider the prestige which a neat uniform gives to the joli it goes- with. We have an abundance of good technical high schools to prepare boys for the skilled trades. It would be a line thing if ivc could lind some. 1 way— whether Air. Feather's, or some other to show young men that the whitu collar is not the only badge of distinction, in this country. Jlaybe the uniforms would do it. Maybe a universal return lo common KOHHO would. Whatever the (solution, it is hitfh time we found il. •Sovk'l, Di'inocmcy It would be a little easier to work tip Home enthuniasm over Soviet Kus- iiia'fi streamlined democratic constitution if that Unit ballot held under UK provisions did not look KO very much like Ihe ordinary rubber-Hljimp election peculiar ID didiilor.sliip.s. . lioth the Germans and the Italians have shnvit that if you run things Hkilf'tilly it iti quite easy to have a "free" election which will go exact.'.y the way you want it to.

CHAPTER IV jgXCEPT for Uic light kindagc around Captain Trent's left wrist, everything at flic brcaWast table next morning seemed much as usual. Thtt is until Barry look up Ihe morning paper and opened it. In a moment he said so sharply thai his grandmother looked up startled from her mail, "I warned him—the blithering idiot! y/cll, lie's down." "Just, who is down —and where?" asked Mrs. Trent calmly. "Old Rust. ' And the devil ol It is that no oac seems to know just where." Barry \v;is reading on rapidly. "The pilot of (he big plane carrying Ihe supplies lost him in the toy and turned back . . . Last radio signals from somewhere over Nicaragua early Ihis morning. ... I told him that if he cracked in that jungle he had :is much chance ot being picked up as a needle in :i haystack. But he wouldn't listen to me." "And when," asked lire grandmother dryly, "have you begun listening to good advice?" Tint Barry was reading on, his J.iuglimg mouth a straight line. ... lie serious enough now, Linda thought. When old Miranda rose irom the table, she said, "Those parcels must really get oft' this morning, Mire Bcntoii. Take George and the ear. 1 shall not need you until after lunch. And no doubt you have some errands ol your own to do." Barry did not follow Ihcm Irom the dining room, lie hardly scorned to know that they were Eoii).?. Unda did have some errands of her own; and il was an ideal day for Chnslmns shopping—clear and eoid, willi n crisp fall of snow that made dazzling arabesques of the over-arching Irces along Ihe avenue, and crunched delightfully under fool. , Everywhere people were going'out their errands with shining Jaccj. 'Already tome of the'doors and windows showed holiday wreathes. In the church next to the Court House a choir of children was rehearsing Christmas earols, tlicii- high young voices rising shrill and swucl on the frosty air—"Noel! Noel! Noel! Noel! Born is the King ol Israel!" * » + J^INDA, wailing at Ihe crossing for the trallic, did not realize that she was singing with them, softly but clearly, until a round- faced, dark little man who was standing beside her turned to smile at-her, a gamin smile that crinkled his face absurdly. 'Bravo!" He spoke to her with a faint twist of inflection that was net qiiilc an accent. "Excuse me, Miss Benfpn, but that is a voice to pack 'cm in the aisles." Linda frowned faintly. She did not remember ever having seen the man before. "Oh, no, yon do not know mo," he went on with his funny puckered smile. "But 1 heard you sing once before. It was in a hotel in New York—for charity. . . and I have never forgotten you. Such freshness—such p u r i I y — s u c li power—and you standing there so straight and young, like something out of a story book ... It was flic kind of singing one does not forget." Linda remembered now. That was the one occasion when her »unt had «llowed her to sing before a public audience. The little man was so wistful and friendly standing there thai she smilccii back at him. After all, it was Christmas week. "Thank you," she said. "When you love to sing, it is nice lo know that someone has liked to listen and remembers. You were kind to tell me." Linda made her purchases at (he town's little gitt shop— the knitting bag for Mrs. Trent, some trifles for the servants, and a book for Barry. She was paying for the book when two elderly women advanced upon her. She recognized one of them as Miss Lydia Chat- tain who came lo see old Miranda sometimes—always bursting with news . . . Miss Lydia was a plump, pasty woman, with a nose that always looked cold, and pale, sharp eyes. "Ah, just a minute, Miss Benton," she began now. "I hear that Captairt Trent is at home for the holidays." "Why, yes," Linda answered, 'lie came last week." "Isn't that just like Miranda Trent?" Mrs Chailam turned to 'her companion. "Keeping him lo j herself all this while. I heard the other day—" she voice, lowered her /"iNE of a group o£ smart looking younger women gathered at, the book table turned to stare at; Linda. As Linda picked up her bundles, she heard flic woman ask 1 in a careless, throaty drawl, "And' who might the little dresden shepherdess be?" "His grandmother's maid, I suppose," s.iM her companion negligently. "Dirt yon see her blush? Well, B.irry always did have n way with tiie lower class ... By the way, Rita, did you know Bany was to bo here?" ' "Naturally," murmured the ono called "nila." She was tall ami lithe, with a warmth of copper- colored hair, a full red mouth in a pale, loo-narrow face, and heavily lashed sultry eyes which swept Linda covertly from head lo foot. "I wondered why you got home ahead of schedule," said the other, and laughed significantly. Linda fled with burning checks ... So Barry had a way with, the lower classes! At lunch that dny Mrs. Trent observed, her eyes trailing curiously over her grandson's face, "1 hear that Rita Blanchard's back." "Our dear Miss Lydia is still faithful, I see," said Barry smoothly. "And where had Rita been?" "Here and Iliore. No grass lias grown under her feel, 1 do assure you, since her divorce was granted." Barry's eyes danced wickedly over his grandmother's face; and Linda sensed undercurrents that she did not understand; She began to understand later in the day when .she found old Miranda at the telephone. "Of course, my dear Rila," she was saying, "1 will tell the captain you called. . . Ah, you must mean Miss Benlon. . . Indeed? But she has been with me for some lime . . . Yes, very charming lo look at, is she not? We bolh—the captain and I—" the old lady's fr.ce broke inlo what in any one else would have been a grin of gamin malice—"find it very pleasant to have such youth and freshness about the house." Rita Blancharti, Linda reflected, must be nt least 30. But what, she thought, has Mrs. Trent against this Mrs. BlaVhtml that she's ready lo use cven'ine as a weapon against her?
