Since 1031 (he National Associfitioii !);ts had a committee working on .social-economic gon\x for America. Their effort, is nut! of many i.o tleline answers to the question "\Vliat do we want for America?" Now tlie uK.suciation and its committee liave capsuled the whole pro- grain in simple form for school discussion. The ten goals, which I he teachers believe "thoughtful Americans desire for themselves and their posterity," may be smuimu'i/.ed as fol- . lows: 1. Hereditary strength—that everyone shall he well-born under conditions that will conserve his innate strengths and capacities. 2. Physical .security—that everyone shall he protected against accident and disease. 3. Culture-skills and knowledges— that every individual .shall muster those skills and knowledges that will enable him to use and enjoy the culture of Die group. ' '1. Culture-values and outlooks— thai everyone shall be put in possession of the values, Nlnmlnrds, and outlooks that reflect the experience of the race. . 5. An active, flexible personality— that everyone shall have such opportunities as will foster initiative, ability to meet new problems, weigh , -facts, resist prejudice, and act. co-operatively. . ,---, ; . 6- Suitable occupation—thaf eVery- one shall enjoy the sense of being useful that honest labor brings, shall be enabled to use his skill where it will mean most to himself and society. -- 7. Economic security—that everyone shall enjoy a minimum income that will ( provide a reasonable standard of living. 8. Menial security—that everyone, especially in childhood and adolescence, shall have affection, toleration, and understanding of life needs that will foster the best development of personality. 9. Freedom—that everyone shall enjoy the widest freedom that j s compatible with the equal freedom of oth- ers 10.

Docs it tend to hinder the development of any? By such a standard one may well gauge the multitude of panaceas which swirl about in a confused world. It is good to sec that America's teachers are active in oll'cring so bright and so precise a yardstick. Pay-As-Yoii-Gt) U'liilc most cilieii .struggle under a ItMTJfic Imrclon of interest costs, and the U. S. Conference of Mayors makes repeated picas for more federal relief aid, il is interesting to study the record of Kalanmoo, Mich. Twenty years mro this city of about r>0,000 population had bonded inilcbt- , cilnews of more than ?f)00,000. Approximately 21! per cent of Use municipal bulled was used annually for bonds and inlm'Kl payments. Now Kalanmxoo is entirely free of debt, despite the fact Dial il had to lloal. i?27;i,(jr>() in relief bonds dunnj,' the depression. Meanwhile, it has built ii new $500,001) city hall, a JlOO-acrc airport and two municipal ^olf courses —all paid for. This fiiwiiciiiff feat happens to have hem accomplished through the com- mi.s.sion-mamitroi' form of government, hut (hat is neither here nor there. The important thins is that the record proves that it IS possible to operate municipal finances on a pay-as- you-go basis if business methods arc substituted for the fuddled cIloHs of professional politicians.

His dark eyes looked into hers. Now they were completely unguarded, all barriers lei down. So thai, looking into (hem, she saw what she had wanted to see and all her anger was melted. Her own eyes grew soft and shining. "That's all that matters," she said simply. It seemed to her, in this breathless moment, that it was. She had forgotten that she was CoiKlance Corby. Forgotten that lirct did not know who she was. Tint the day must come when she must tell him. she had forgolten Uloisc's bitter accusution. Jusl as new, looking into each other's 4*vy, (hey both had forgotten the oihcr ahl's existence. Tliey did not notice even when she got up quietly and slipped from Ihc room! Two long strides brought Bret lo Connie's side. He took her hands in his. "Dearest," h c said, and his voice was husky, "you know that I don't care who you are, or have been, I only know that you're (he only girl in the world for me. And that I love you." "And I love you, Bret Hardes- l.v." Connie said. And then, "Please," she whispered "aren't you going lo kiss me?" Now she knew why she had changed places wilh Katie Blyn, why she had left her golden world, why slic had been born! Tins was Dial lovelj', secret romance that she had sought. This was the heart's desire that Bret had wished for her. "Fetch a wrap of some sort," fcet said, after he had kissed her, without any more urging, and most completely. "We'll take a walk, darling. Climb up to the top of the hill by the little church —look at the stars. Hurry! I want to tell you again how much I love you!" "And you're Ihe gentleman who enlly there claimed he had no time for ro mance!" Connie chidcd gayly. ^ "You're the lady who piediclei I'd learn!" he reminded. * 9 * IJPSTA1RS at the door of. her room Connie encountered Eloiso. Her psle face was streaked her eyes red and swollen. ". wanted to tell you I'm sorry," she murmured. "I didn't mean lo say (he things I did. I know you're not a Ihiof, Miss Blyn. I know I had no right. It's just. . . ." Her voice faltered, she turned her iicad; she could not go on. Connie pul her arms around her drew her close. "I understand,' she (old tin's girl whose defeat was her triumph, who had given hei :ieart into Ihc same man's keeping "Better than you think I do. Come in a moment, Eloise, please." SIiL drew the girl on inside, closed the door behind them. From the big oak bureau Connie iook the emerald brooch, the •ing, the exquisite fileamiiig pearls. "They were my mother's,' she told Eioisc, for that was true 'She Icfl Ihem lo me. I want you lo have these pearls." As she snokc she clasped them around the slender white throat. "They look ike you, Eloise. They are like you. See—look in the mirror! Aren't they becoming? As trans- ucenl and lovely as your skin, a filling compliment to your gor- [eous hair." "Oh, but I couldn't accept them!" Eloise stared at her mirrored reflection. Thi pearls did indeed become her. Why! she could look like a princess, too, had she had the fine raiment. Never in her lite had she looked like this, hoped to own anything so beautiful. "Of course you can accept them. I shall be hurt if you refuse," Connie said. "I want you to have them, Eloise. I want lo give them lo you." Little enough to give, when she had so much more. Though Connie was not thinking of her millions. She was thinking o£ Bret who waited downstairs to walk with her to the top of 'the hill, to tell her again that he loved her. "After what I said about you..." Eloisc marveled. Her eyes filled with tears once more. "After I've been hating you all this lime, wishing you'd never come here ... I know now I was wrong. You're sweet and kind, even though you arc different." "Then we'll be friends?" Connie smiled at her. "You'll be my little sister, as well as Bret's." She did not need to wound this girl more deeply by telling her thai she had read her secret. Lei her cherish that, at least, inviolable. ?h k, r • ' laS bCCn "° 5Cicllt ' flc Cruelly lo Animals, or anv law en- ' this ponil Tiow 1 '^" 00 f " rCC " tly °" foi ' ccmcnt ° mcer lo check ,111 mi ! „ o pro or abstinence. • day and not more than a 00-hour , rs . nursing moth- ( week.

But il might nave been a coal of ermine, so shining was the look she wore, so bright her eyes, her heart so full. So that the other girl turned away as though she could not bear to look upon such radiance. "I thought you'd changed your mind," Bret said, when Connie came down. "I thought you weren't coming."
