Whatever the advantages of tlic »!an, the cards are slacked against it. The 'present legislature has 135 members, most of whom would like to keep their jobs at least until they see a way open to political promotion. The Campbell proposal, providing for only 50 law makers, would automatically retire 85 of them to private life. Are they likely to submit such a proposition as that to the voters of the state? Biit while immediate adoption of the Crinipbcll plan is exceedingly unlikely, it does merit consideration, lu theory, at least, it has much to commend it, and if this country's first one-house legislature in over 100 year.s, now holding its first session in Ne, braska, proves a success there will be a growing demand for adoption of similar legislative arrangeJmcnts in this and other slates. \Vliiib a small one-house legislature would result in some not inconsiderable direct saving to the taxpayers, the chief advantage claimed for it is that it would end the juggling and . buctJMiassing that under the present scheme of things often make jl next to impossible for the voters lo place responsibility for the enactment of bad legislation or the defeat of good measures. As it is today, after a bill has been amen.lcd in one house and ' then in the other, rewritten in conference and otherwise mutilated, its own Haddy ottcn can scarcely recognize it in tiic fortu in which U appears for passage. And if is all but impossible lo determine who is responsible for the changes. The proceedings of a one-house legislature of moderate size would be . relatively easy to follow. II \\ould be able to act directly and cxpeililious- ly. its members would be Under the spotlight, with lilllc chance lo hide their doings from Ihcir constiluejils. Another argument in favor of the •plan is that it would make a seat in the legislature a position of greater consequence than it is now with the result, in ihcofy at least, that abler men would be attracted. It is said that tlic now one-house Nebraska legislature contains not one of the freaks, grandstaiulers and conspicuous diin-wils, « quota of which ordinarily gums the machinery of every legislature. Maybe Nebraska was just lucky in Ihis instance, but if experience shows that the thing actually works that way it is certainly a point worth considering. A Uisliop Oii Communisrii To those who feel that CbmmUiiistn holds a real danger to this country we commend a statement by Bishop Scarlett of the Episcopal diocese of Missouri, made lit the annual diocesal convention iii St. Loviis Tuesday. lie said: "I do not believe that we' shall overcome C'o'mmunisni by a direct frontal attack, but rather by a common attack on the evils out of which Co;mmunism so frequently arises—misery, poverty, injustice and war." Wlien a large part of the population' of an'y country becomes convinced that the existing social, political and economic order offers them no hope the situation is ripe for revolution. Suppression is no preventive; Eut elimination of (be conditions which breed misery and hopelessness is a certain 1 cure.

The Villa San Margaretc wae one of the largest. An ivy-grown slonc wall shut it oft from the winding road ori the landward side; toward the sea, a wide lawn sloped gently down to the curving shore. A second-story balcony with its wrOught iron railing nnt its colorful canopy oi red anc white striped canvas overlooked the wide bay; climbing roses grcv from the ground and twined their tendrils in and out o£ the railing nnd . serious-minded bees wen bumbling noisily from blossom t blossom.
