A State Liquor Monopoly It is contended >'" behalf of a measure foi 1 the establishment of a system of stale-owned liquor stores, scheduled for introduction in the legislature today, Hint it would materially increase the stale's revenue from Ihc sale of alcoholic beverage.'!. That is probably true, just as it is true that the lax revenue which the stale derives from the grocery business, for example, could be materially increased if Ihe sale of (jrocerics were made a stale-owned monopoly. But it is not a sull'icienl reason to justify the slate going into the liquor business any more than it would justify it goiiij! into the grocery or any other business. A slate monopoly of the retail liquor business can only be justified it' its purpose is to obtain a more effective control of tho liquor traffic than is possible with the business in private hands. Successful state liquor systems have-'not sought profits. They Inwc been designer!, rather, to cliiiiiriatc the abuses which result.from the conflict between the profit motive and such limitations and restrictions on, the sale of liquor as appear desirable for the sake of the public welfare. With proper safeguards a state- owned liquor monopoly might bo an improvement over the present /system.. But any proposal along that line should have the most careful scrutiny. It should not increase the state's dependence upon liquor revenues, it should have elimination of evils attendant upon the liquor traffic as its chief objective, and above nil its management and operation should bo completely divorced from politics. To Save, Government, Must Abolish Functions If the idea back of reorganization, of the federal government's machinery is, to save a lot of money, President Roosevelt's plan is a lemon. If the idea is to enable - Uncle Sam to do his job with less lost motion, the plan may be a pretty good one. So before we start to praise or to criticise the plan, we ought to get straight in our own minds the things \ye expect such reorganization to accomplish. And before we get through, we are apt lo find out that what is chiclly at stake is the old, old argument about the amount of work which the federal government ought to do. The money to be saved by reorganizing government bureaus and departments will be little more than cheeseparing unless some of them, and their functions, can be abolished in tolo. If you believe Hint the government ought to cut down on its activities and let go of a lot of the levers, you have some real savings in sight; if you believe that the government must play a .steadily increasing part in the life of tho country, you'rp going to bo able to save very little. Now it is worth remembering that a good deal of the criticism of the expenses of federal administration in the past has come from people who were really interested in clearing the way for nigged individualism, rather than in economy. That worked out like this. Suppose an industrialist found such a body as the Federal Trade Commission cramping his style. Would he open ui> will) an attack on the commission ? By no means. Ho would simply start a campaign of protest against.govern- ment' extravagance, against bureaucracy, against spending the taxpayer's money, against overlapping commissions, and against government red tape. . That sort of thing reached its climax about the time of the 1929. stock market crash, or a little later. It was the popular thing then to rail against government spending and the unwieldy bureaucracy. Back of it there was simply this desire to lop on' some of the government's functions—to abolish those bureaus and commissions which were lighting to protect .the public interest from the rigors of unrestrained greed. There are, of course, a great many people who sincerely feel that the government could tlo all the things it needs to do without spending quite so much money ou the job. But the thing they need to bear in : mind is that what makes government costly is chiefly the things government does and not tho way it does thc'm. Military preparedness,-relief iii all its guises, the cost of past wars— those arc the things that really cost money. Until we are ,ready to cut down on them, the savings we can ninkc will be comparatively unimportant. SIDE GLANCES la wunlrj!

CHAPTER V VOU were apt to find some odd (jsh in the huge apartment of the Due dc Monlmiral, in Paris. An aristocrat himself, the duke cared not at all for birth and very lillle for breeding; ho believed only in the aristocracy of achievement and of brains, and he was quite capable of dosing his doors to the most blue-blooded of duchesses ami-opening them to ragged and uncouth persons who were winning fame in the laboratory, Ihe studio or, the dissecting room. Tins evening the duke was giving one of his ".it homes." At first glance you would have said that his guests were a motley crowd. Some of them were in evening dross and some quite obviously haci never owned an evening dress in their lives, or cared to.

Paul, wandering through the. apavlmc-nt from group to group felt that here, at last, was a circle of wiiich Dr. Bonders must approve wholeheartedly. It was three months afler his meeting with that outspoken, little archeologist. The things Dr. Son- dors had LTiid to him'had fermented a rising discontent in Paul's mind. lie and Ardath had remained at the villa for two months, after the countess's party at the Casino; then —driven by Paul's desire to find a society and a way of life that vould quiet his conscience and ake the sting out of Dr. Bonders' •emark about casting pearls be"ore swine—they had set out on an auto tour of Europe. * * * [T had been pleasant enough, this lour ... at first, anyway, when the lazy wandering from town to town, the overnight stops at little inns, tho rajnules through medieval walled cities, had seemed like the complete vealiza- lon of the footloose irresponsibll- ly Paul had dreamed of before iis abdication. There had been, 'lowcver, a few jarring notes. Paul was learning that there was much truth in Dr. Bonders' remark: "The king you used to be will stand at your elbow wherever you go." If they went to a theater or a night club, a buzz of 'talk followed them, and people of the Reggie Van Twyne breed somehow gathered around them. If they moved in more sedate circles, among the cultured folk who provide Europe with its balance wheel and its excuse for existence, they met with a certain constraint—nn- indefinite, intangible thing, as if people were se- crelly asking, "Why don't you go back to the seacoast and play? We are serious folk; what have you lo do with us?" In any case, they were now in Paris; and tonight they were attending one of the "at homes 1 of the Due do'Monlmiral. * « s TU1E duke received Ihem with no more and no less attention than lie accorded his other guests Thoy became separated in the crowd, presently. Ardath swept away in the eddy of a little group that was gathered about a shaggy-haired, c 1 u b-footed sculptor. Paul found himself wandering from group to group exchanging a few words here am there—and feeling, in the botton of his heart, more or less like a fish out of water. Somewhat lost, Paul strolled presently to a balcony to have a cigaret. A young man in a won blue serge suit looked up and asked him for a match. The stood there in silence for a minute, smoking. "I say," said the young man presently, "have you seen him? Paul smiled. "Seen who?" "The former King Paul. I un dcrstand he's here tonight." Paul hesitated. Then he said "I believe he is. Are you—in lerested in seeing him?" "Yes. , It's not snobbery," thi young man hastened lo explain. "I admire him." "You do? Why?" The youth threw away his cig- aret and stood with his elbows on the railing. "I a&nire any man,"^he'said, J who can in one gesture c uch complete contempt nstitution ol monarchy and nuch lo end the myth of it ulncss." Paul raised his eyebrows. !o you mean that?" - * * ?

' OUT OUR WAY By .Williams Students Pare Living Expense to $2 Weekly CANTON. N. Y. tUP)—An experiment in home economics is proving successful for a group of housekeeping students, who report that for them, living costs have iiccn reduced 400 per cent. It now' costs these students, $2 a week for room and board. Previously they paid an average of from $8 to S10. How they did it Is explained by John Rost-,.of Cleveland, one of four theological students at St. Lawrence University who reside in a hut of their own construction on a hitherto un- inhiibilcd island in the Grass River. "Careful buying ,and the selection of foo:ls necessary in the die of persons living in this section with special consideration to taste, and nourishment that helps -study have played a large part in lower Ing our living costs," Host says. "The best of all is that tilers i no limit to the helpings. You can Cause of Leukemia-Rapid Increase of While Blood Cells-Is Unkiiow.iv erythinj with the passible excep- 'ion of dessert." Host's companions are Francis 3. Davis, Nashua, N. H.; Ernest Young, Mtddletown; Raymond Scott, Attleboro, Mass. The boys take turns at dusting, sweeping, washing dishes, making beds and cooking. Thus far the boys have not suffered any ill effects. One-Room Log Cabin Houses Family of 10 CANTON. N. Y.
