Polyopoly While you're doing those mcnliil gymnastics on monopoly and its evils, you might work out a while will) this one—polyopoly! , Maybe we're going to have (o learn not only some new ideas, bill some new words to describe them. Polyopoly is an arliticially-buill word carpentered by a Washington official. Hero's how he did it: If one ni<m or one business dominates a trade situation so as to bo able to fix prices in that trade, that is monopoly. But if several different individuals or businesses, working in cahoots, achieve the stune results, that's polyopoly. True, as Master Shakespeare long ago pointed out, ."that which we call a rose by any other naine would smell as sweet." And monopoly would bo no less fragrant if we pot into the habit of calling one version of it polyopoly. Economists Aside Economists don't know everything. They don't sue everything. They aren't always right about what they see. Neither is anybody else. But there are certain aspects of the recession or depression or whatever it is, Unit the economists might look in- lo. It took the very ucule sports com- raeiifalor, Harry Gruyson, to pick them out. Among other things Gray sun notes: That 264,070 people attended -Sbe New Year's Day football games. That 36,300 jammed into New York's Madison Square Garden in two nights to see some boys play basketball. That 7800 did the same in Cleveland in one Jiiglit—all the hall would hold. That New Year's Day attendance at Santa Anita race track was (10,000 compared to 35,000 a year ago, and that these people bet $039,520 as compared to §631,258 on the same tiny of 1937. For learned economic comment go to the economists. But there would certainly seem to be quite a few people in this man's country who arc unwilling to usher in 1038 by 'crying the blues. Reassuring Thought It is commonly assumed, and certainly the events in Spain "and China bear it out, that in Hie next World War civilians, women, and babies will nil he slaughtered on even terms with soldiers. Now a British admiral offers an alternate suggestion that would be more reassuring if the thought behind it wore not such a revelation of the mad way in which the world is thinking today. "The bombing of non-combatants, except munition workers," says the sagacious admiral, "would not be carried out by anybody except madmen, as food- supply is a great problem in war-time, and to reduce the number of non- c.ombatanl.s and non-munition workcr.s is assisting to solve the enemy's most vital problem." In other words, because non-conibat- anls eat, thus consuming food that might otherwise; go to their soldiers, opposing future warriors may wisely spare their lives. So mad has the world become that sane and intelligent men indulge quite gravely in speculations J'k'j that.

Hugh While of Mississippi proposes to make nil Mississippi homes tax-free, from the mtdctt cabin lo (he finest, mansion—free not only of state taxes but disirict, county and municipal faxes. H may take a change in the constitution to bring all this about, but the governor Is convinced the people will vole for It overwhelmingly. Certainly the proposal will be Brcelccl with sympathy by many people. Loss of homes, both rural and urban, by foreclosure during recent yenr.s, lias made (lie people home conscious, perhaps, as never before.

If (ho .sales lux Is to !:c increased or extended, the home-owner will not receive any net benefit. Already he is taxed In Mississippi on pracllcnlly everything lie buys. In driblets many poor families pay out, in the sales tax more than they would pay once n year in taxes on lliclr little .homes. We would like Gov. White's plan better if his proposed exemption was not so sweeping-. We believe he would accomplish more good by limiting it—by giving home-owners exemption iip to $5000.

CHAPTER tit WHEN Gibbs brought Miss Con** nie's breakfast that next morning, there was no response. When she returned with it again an hour later, there was still no response. Gibbs' face look on Us pinched expression. She knew that this signified a thunderstorm ahead. Whether to risk it now, or postpone it, was the question. Already (ho day's schedule overlapped. The masseur would have to bo fitted into the same half hour as the manicurist; then there was that girl coming from Lueille's with the new frocks to be Iried and fitted. Gibbs set her thin lips; knocked once more on the door, pushing it open at the same time with a decisive ju from her knee, crossed the room like a soldier about (o face u firing squad. "It's very late, Miss Connie,' she said firmly, "ft's a lovely breakfast I've brought. Mr. Brandon already has called three times," Gibbs continued and <ncw immediately that this was the wrong Approach hecausc the mound Mopped over and buried itself oven deeper. "There's a lovely account about your lovely party last night," * * » PONNIE stirred, sat up, flung out a rounded white arm "Let me see," she said. Gibbs handed her tho papers, carefully folded at the proper place. Connie glanced at the first one, flung it aside. "I knew it," she muttered. "The low-down spying sneak. II only I'd been a man ... Or d ono with me." She gave the pillow next to her a vicious thump. " Til have to send for the guards if you don't go'," she mimicked in what was a surprising imitation of .Rodney's clean- clipped Harvard accent. Then she slumped down among the pillows again. "Take it away, please," she waved Gibbs and the papers, and (he whole universe out ot her i sight. "Don't want any breakfast.' Don't think I'll get up—ever. You can (ell 'the newspapers that. Tell them to come lake a picture o£ me dying — dying of boredom and nausea. Tell them they can have one in my coffin, too, for good measure. Tel! them . . ." "Now. Miss Connie, you'll really bj ill. if you allow yourself to get all worked up." Gibbs bent to pick up the scattered papers, smoothing out a crumpled sheet that explained — too late — the bomb that had set off the explosion. A full length portrait of Miss Connie, clasped, somewhat gingerly, il is Irue, but clasped, nevertheless, in Mr. Rodney's virile arms, bis lips pressed—not quite so gingerly — against hers, and underneath Ihc caption: "MILLION DOLLAR PRINCESS BESTOWS BETHROTIiAL KISS.' "I am ill," Connie muttered from the pillows. "I'm sick. I'm sick of living. I'm sick of myself. Go way—please. Take the tray and those papers with you. don't want lo see anything or any one ever. Understand, Gibby?" "Now, Miss Connie," Gibbs began severely, purposefully again; but :ihc saw that II; was no use fo she did as she was bid, her lips :;ct disapprovingly. * 5 ff 'THE mound underneath the silk and satin coverlet lay quie once more.

Connie. inch or utter a sound unlil what might have been hours, or days, or years later, when another knock came at the door. The knock was repeated, louder, more urgently, The door was pushed open. "Didn't I tell you to go 'way?" A pillow, a small afi'air of silk and lace, but solid and compact for all that, owing to the force of the velocity with which it was hurled, caught the young girl in the doorway squarely in the middle, sending the big box clasped tightly in her arms to the floor with a smack. "Oh." Connie sat up, rubbed the sleep, and some of the fire, out of her eyes. She stared at the girl. "Who arc you? How did you get in?" she asked. And then, as lie girl, without answering, stooped and began to! gather the scattered contents from the box ogether, "I'm sorry I hit you," Bonnie said. The girl did not look up. She was intent upon her task. I said I'm sorry I hil Connie repeated. The girl glanced at her over her shoulder, but she went on repack- 'ng the contents into the box. "Can't you talk?" Connie asked. She sat up straight now, leaning 'ortvard to clasp her knees in her arms. There was a tiny candle of interest, lighted in her blue eyes. The girl nodded solemnly. Her eyes, blue like Connie's, were wide with wonder, as though they could not credit all they saw. "Why don't you, then?" This you, lime Connie's tone was touched with impatience. She reached for a negligee at Ihe foot of the bed. She slung her feet to the floor, wiggled into blue silk mules, the heels of which were studded with rhinestoncs, walked over to her chaise longue and sat down. "You look my breath," the girl said. "And I was told not to say anything. Just leave the hox." "I won't bile," Connie said. I suppose you're the girl from Lueille's. Well, you can take those things back, i don't want any of lliem." * * * A rHE girl just stared at her, uol saying u word. 'Did you hear me?" Connie asked. • The girl nodded. '. "I said I didn't want to see anyone, or anything, ever again," Connie said. "And I meant it, "Why?" Connie was so surprised IKat the girl could ask a question that she answered before she thought. "Because I'm sick of everyone and everything. I'm sick of living." The incredulity on the girl's face deepened. "You!" she exploded. "When you have everything in the world you want!" It was Connie who nodded this time. "Exactly," she said. "That's what my grandfather told rrir: years ago. That's why I haven't anything." "But you're the richest girl in the world!" the girl said. And then, "Oh, I'd give anything to ua you! Just for a'little while." Now Connie stared at her speechless. "Anything!" the girl went on, ' speaking rapidly, heatedly, as though now that her reserve had been broken down she could not stop the flow o£ words. "To have all this, nothing but beauty around you—to sleep in ;i bed like that—to lie as long as you want . . . But I'm sorry," she stopped, her face coloring. "I didn't think what I was saying. I didn't mean to say it." "I didn't mean to throw things," Connie said. There was a new light in her blue eyes; a name much deeper lhan any flickering candle, a flame that grew brighter, more intense. She-beckoned the girl lo her side, regarded her a long moment, the cheap little hat that yet had nn air of chic, the neat plain suit, worn, but well- pressed, the freshly laundered blouse, the shiny.hose, with a runner neatly darned, the brown brogues, sculled a bit, but bravely, shined. An air of pride and de, ancc about the whole .ensemble, matching the lift of the trembling chin and pretty head. Connie nodded as though satisfied, as she said: "Then how would you like to bo me—for a little while?" 3V! .In ~.
