Clear Labor Concept Is Nation's Need Now To say thai labor is in contusion today is merely to say wlinl everybody knows. Bui a good deal of Uic confusion is in the fact that we as yet have no settled law or even common concepts of labor rights and duties. That is not strange. The labor problem in its modern, streamlined phase is new to the United States. Wu arc simply fumbling our way toward jet- lled conceptions. . The Wagner act is one of our first e<Yovls to codify rights that tin by no means commonly agreed upon. Neifii- or employers nor organized workers seem entirely satisfied with it as it stands. But it would bo odd if this • early experiment were perfect. Basic concepts of labor rights an; not yet clearly defined, and no IHW can be successful unless it reflects a generally ' accepted concept. For instance: An odd labor election wan held Die other day by the New York Labor Keiatioii.s Board. The question usually set up by .such boards is "do you wish to be rep.vusuiil.ed in cu'.iecHvc bargaining by X union or V union?" ' But tliis ballot ojVcreil a third alternative,, that "neither union" be chosen as representative. And lo and behold, when all the ballots were counted, X union got 88, Y union got 21, and the vole for "neither union" was 2b7. .. , . . Does this suggest that perhaps many of our labor board elect ioiin"'liave I.i.'lec! lo offer a chance to 1 vote for \vhal the employes really wanted? Industrial elections should bo indicators to show the will of employes as regards collective bargaining. They do not yet do this perfectly, nnd hero there is room for experiment. Picketing rights have not yet been generally agreed upon, A recent New Jersey decision is that a strike is over and picketing is therefore illegal when the places of strikers have been filled and business has been resumed. Certainly there will be no genera! agreement that this is the final word on such a point. Oil the other hand, suppose there are 100 employes in a plant, and 10 of them want to strike. They do, and bring 3000 allies as "pickets" to forcibly prevent the other fiO from entering the plant. I s that picketing? There simply is not as yet any general agree- ment, on the rights and wrongs in such cases, New York electrical manufacturers arc suing a union there under the Sherman anti-trust act, charging that it constitutes a monopoly. With the administration blaming monopolies for price-fixing and raising costs arbitra- rarily, is it possible that closed unions will be held to be as much "in restraint of trade" as monopolists in the ordinary sense ? Can union members sue their unions if they are damaged through acts of the unions? This iiucstion, too, is before the courts. There are a thousand questions lilco these on which people generally must become agreed, and their concepts written into law before a smooth and systematic conduct ol' labor relations will be -possible. / Publication In this column of editorials from other newspapers does not necessarily mean endorsement but is nn acknowledgment of Interest In the subjects discussed.

"What do you mean?" she asked. "Like . . . like The Prince and The Pauper?" "Yes and no," Connie relumed. Again she nodded with satisfaction. "We look almost enough alike, at fhal. Blue eyes, hair {he same shade, weight and height. At least enough for any one who did not know us. Reporters and photographers, for instance." The light in hci- eyes 'glowed even more brightly than before. "Did you really mean it when you said you'd like to be me?" she demanded. "Did I mean it!" "Then gel out of your clothes,' Connie commanded. She crossed (lie room; bolted the door. "Hurry!" she said impatiently, when she saw that (he girl had not moved. "We can work out the details while we change. I'll leave a note for Uncle Tippy, he's my guardian, a perfect dear; he'll understand, do as I tell him. I can slip out, carrying that box, in your things, and no one will stop me. Here!" She yanked ofl her negligee, tossed it toward her visitor, who still sat as jf in a trance. "Don't do thai!" Connie reprimanded. "Pull on my negligee, climb into my bed—artel stay in it ns long as you like—and dash oft that letter for me lo drop in a box to your family." "My family won't worry aboul me," the girl said briefly. "Besides I told ihem just last night I was moving out on my own. There's only one person . . . But no," she drew her finely arched dark brows together in a little Irown not unlike the one that often marred Connie's smooth brow, "J won't send him word, cither." Her blue eyes blazed with a hidden fire not unlike the one that often smoldered behind Connie's. "We quarreled last night," she confided. "My steady and I. Everyone thought we'd get married some day. But I told him 1 was sick of being courted with my whole family looking on— [here are eight of us, you know, besides Grandma Wertz, who's come to live with us now. That was the trouble, as I told Tom, we never had any freedom, any irivacy. Why, would you believe it, when Tom stole a kiss last night, a cop came along and ordered us to move off his old park bench, said he'd have to lock us up if we didn't, as it was after 11, That was when I broke it all off," she finished, some of the fire dying down in her now. "I told Tom it wasn't any use. Romance should be secret. I told him I never wanted to tee him again. And J meant it." * * • fJOMANCE should ba secret. The phrase vibrated Within Connie, seemed to strike some responsive chord. Why, of course! That was what was wrong wllh her romance. That was what was missing. Romance should be secret, or it was not romance, at all. That was why it had all been spoiled—that awful picture of her, cbsped in Rodney's arms flaunted across the front page of that paper, every quarrel, every time they patched it up, turned into public property. "It'll do him good — to worry aboul me," the other girl was saying. It would do Rodney good, too, Connie thought, without the slightest pang ol regret. "But you'd beller get busy and write your letter," the girl suggested. She had climbed into big bed and settled herself among the heaps of pillows, so that now il niighl have belonged to her, as well as to Connie and Marie Antoinette. Its present mistress lookad very tiny and lovely—anc very much as though she were mistress of all she surveyed. Even Gibbs would be fooled for a minute, Connie thought, and she wished she might stay just to see that grim creature's staitlcd expression. She got paper and pei from the Louis XVI desk, sat down to write her letter. When she had finished it, she folded i carefully, sealed the envelope propped it against the mirror on her dressing table. From a drawer she took some bills, thrust them into a purse She hesitated n moment, ther added an emerald brooch, a dinner ring, and a small siring of perfectly matched pearls. She dumped out the new frocks from Ihe box marked Lucllle's, repacking it wilh a few hastily gathered belongings. "What is your name?" she asket the girl in the hod, who looked 10 much like her now that it rrtade i funny little quiver down Connie's spine. Surveying herself in he mirror, she saw that she might easily pass for that other girl. She lad combed her hair back rather severely into a low smooth roll under the chic little hat; she had not put on any rouge, so that her 'ace was pale. She looked neat and brave and poor. She carried icr head with defiance and pride. "Why, you look like me!" tho girl in the bed gasped, as though once more she could not believe her eyes. "My name? It's Katie Blyn." * * * {,M "T AM you," Connie said. "fe<^ *• a little while, at least. Katie Blyn. 1 like that. I think I'm gong to like being you." She bent suddenly, on an impulse, put her arms around that other girl, who low was she, pressed her lips sl her forehead. "Goodby. And thank you. You can't know what this means to me." I can't know!" The girl who :iad been Katie Blyn and who now was Constance Corby, the richest girl in the world—if only for a little while—appeared bewildered. She caught one of Connie's hands in hers, carried it to her lips, fiercely. "You can't know what it means to me! If only I don't wake up and find I'm dreaming. You're sure it will be all right? You explained it all to your Uncle? He'll lake me with him on that wonderful yacht? I'm really to have all this, be- you?" Connie gave her hand a reassuring squeeze. "For as long as we can keep it secret," she promised. She wished it could last for a long, long while. But she knew that lhat would not be possible She must hurry, even now. Makejl Ihe most of this wonderful ad-, * venlure. Enjoy lo the utmost that freedom and privacy that would be hers for (his brief time. Seek that precious something that all (he money in the world could not buy. Thai the richest girl pri Ihe world had never had. And who knew? — she might even find that romance that could be secret—this new Katie Blyn, in her neat, wojn suit with ils perky white blouse, hugging Ihe big box marked L u c i 11 e' s tightly against her breast as she slipped down the long winding slairway, shrouded in ils thick velvet pile, along the wide reception hall with its art treasures the values of which were priceless, out (he side-entrance for trades- people, into the-warm -sunshine and fresh air that,were priceless, too, sinje 1hey;be}onged—as Constance Corby no longer did—to the whole world. <To Be Continued) fl >,. hurch Vault Yields Bible Printed In 1599 PHILADELPHIA (UP) — A Bible [lends on nutrition.
