A returning traveler from the far- off South pacific-landed, in San Fran- ' clfico the other day with news of Or. Frederick Hitter and Knui Hilde Koer- win, formerly of Berlin, who have uei'n living a Robinson Crusoe existence on a remote little i.-land in the GidupiUfos group for the past two years, and are still quite liappy about if. : I'hey told him that they have no intention of (jnilting their tiny para- djso, of which they are the sole inhabitants, and that they expect to live to be 100 years old in the contentment and solitude that is theirs. They have established their home in a rude open- air shack among the trees and live very comfortably, since the equatorial ^ clirnate never varies. Jt is difficult to understand why Dr. Jlifter, once a prominent licrlin pby- sician, and his pretty married nurse (utidivorccd, by tlie way) should choose to give up civilization and hie off to a far corner of. the world to live like Adam and Eve on a tiny island all to themselves. But why worry over trying to understand it? It is .entirely their own affair. . * * * Yet, one cnn't help believing that Dr. Hitter and his companion are just as happy as they say they are. They may have lost a lot of the attractions that civilization has to offer, but likewise *> they have gained a lot—for^.ciyili/ii- . tjon, after all, has its price/feyf/' ''" Far from the world's beaten path, .they have escaped many things. They . have no nosey neighbors eiiger to pry into their affairs, or always ready to bother by borrowing sugar or coffee; if Dr. Rittor chooses to come home slightly tipsy at night (although goodness only knows where lie would be coming from) he need not worry, because there is no one to see him; he is free from worries about pay cuts or losing his job, never bothered by thoughts of the depression, immune from having to crawl out of bed and hustle off to work when the alarm clock rings in the morning, never troubled with the problem of paying bills on the first of the month, exempt from both bouse rent and taxes, never lias to listen to the weary speeches of politicians or read about the scandals of Hollywood movie stars.

Free Speech Still Supreme President Hoover deserves commendation for the prompt iniumei- in which he ordered the reinstatement of Hen H. KCMT, a World \Var velerun and clerk in the postoffice at (Jury, lnd., who had been liral iiy a politically- minded PoslolVice Depai'lment for; daring- to express his personal approval of tile soldiers' lionns in a manner contrary to the views of the administration. Air. Kerr, as you doubtless read, introduced a resolution in favor of the bonus at a niecliiifj of his local American Legion post. All this happened after bis day's work at tin- -poston'ice was done, mid it is very clear that he acted 1 merely in his capacity as a private citizen. He was dismissed on it Ilim-sy charge that lie had violated a rule which prohibits gnvernniunt em- ployes from "playing politics". If II r. Kcrr's dismissal had been permitted to stand it would have set a precedent that would have mu/zled the free speech of every employe in the government service. Unless he cared to risk losing his job, no government'' employe could have dared to express his personal opinion on the bomt.-, prohibition or any other national |issne —if such personal opinion run' con-- trary to tile views of lite administration. Nothing could have been more regrettable, 01- more unjust, in a land where freedom of speech is our oldest and most cherished tradition, the,right of which is guaranteed hy our Constitution. mwm I Eot quite u thrill from b^lng wav <i]i m Ihc air on the Empire Elate building.

Translated, it means."at a bargain—cheap." Actually, "an bon marche" indicates to the French what a true bargain does to Americans—dependable.merchandise.at fair-prices. When so many shops everywhere are full-of-merchandise on which the "price appeal" is prominent, it is necessary that the wise shopper insist upon .-products of, known value and proven merit. The,clock that will not keep time is hardly a bargain -at;any price. Foodstuffs and drug-store supplies-must contain pure ingredients and be prepared under hy- genic conditions, lest they become notonly cheap but dangerous. Wearing apparel at a mark-down -is only a snare and a delusion.if.it lacks the-quality that will result in wear. Wise shoppers, these days, are refusing-substitutes, are weighing true worth against price appeal. They are.using the advertisements in this newspaper as a shopping guide. When a merchant advertises his vyares consistently, you may be sure that he is telling the truth about them. He could not afford to do otherwise, even if he so desired. When a manufacturer of national scope appeals to you through these pages, you can believe < and act upon his words. tf "Au bon marche." Today advertising points-the way to the only real bargains!
