Extending Treatment Is Goal of Medicine «/ The question of socialized or stalc- controllccl meiicihe is one which come.) up periodically, and with incvcasiiiB frequency in late years. No one who has studied the problem denies that many low-income families are not receiving proper medical care today because there is no monu.y to pay for it. The question is Imw to remedy the situation. Advocates of state-controlled medicine point to. systems in effect in several European countries and contend that the government should assume the burden of providing proper • niedi- 1 cal care for all the people. Various methods of socializing medicine have been proposed, all of which have been opposed by the medical profession generally. The American Medical Association has been severely criticized on its stand, but physicians contend that stale control of medical service would depreciate the quality of .such'service, destroy initiative, inhibit research, and would not be suitable to the American temperament. Various plans of sickness insurance, the profession claims, would bo unsatisfactory because of the great burden of administrative cost and probable political interference. Physicians concede that the cost of medical service has increased tremendously in recent years, principally because it has expanded to a point where. 1,250,000 persons—doctors, 'nurses, pharmacists, dieticians, technician's, and hospital employes—arc engaged " in the task of healing the sick. '(-. The ideal system in a democratic country, they contend, would be one in which citizens would he" encouraged to save toward future medical costs. But because 'this objective obviously is impossible of immediate attainment, the American Medical Association luis outlined a course of action which it says will solve the problem without recourse to any socialization plan. The association's hoard of trustees has passed a resolution calling on all • state.and county medical societies to determine the need for additional medical service in each county and to report on the best means of supplying that need to those unable to pay doc- \ tor bills. Dr. Morris Fishbeini editor of the Journal of the American Medical As- sociation, describes the program as "an attempt to apply on a nation-wide scale the best features of tlie numerous plans now in effect, utilizing in^ each county to the fullest extent the resources there available." He believes the plan mav evolve into a "comprehensive system of medical caret for all the people according to the American plan of medical'practice." Certainly the purposes of the association's program arc laudable. Whether it will result in a complete solution of the problem remains to be seen. If niHhiug else, the campaign should bring a fuller understanding of llvj precise extent of the problem to be mel, and Dial's half the battle. Ilvin y Blocs Try to take away from Congress some of its "sacred" prerogatives and the cry which goes up from the Capitol dome .sounds like the wail of the ban-' slice. President Uouscvell (ried it the other day when one of his legislative lieutenants pushed through the House an appropriation bill rider giving the President power to veto individual items in an appropriation bill without disapproving the entire incii.surc. It didn't work, of course (22 Presidents before Roosevelt have tried it unsuccessfully), because a Senate committee promptly killed tlie rider. Bnl give Mr. lloosevell credit for a commendable attempt. Congress is always sending him regular appropriation bills iilled with private claims riders which he disapproves but can'*; velo without killing the whole bill: Maybe some day a President will get the measure through. At least, the taxpayers may live in hope. Siudy In Midisliness As an example of pure and unadulterated stubbornness, the case of John Marsh, a carpenter in Cumberland county, Pa., takes the prize. Marsh won't allow his son, Eugene, to be vaccinated, so every time the la:i goes to school the- teachers send him When the boy fails to attend school, his father is put in jail for failure to comply with the compulsory school attendance law. ' He has served Co straight live-day terms in jail. Every time lie completes one sentence, the school board slaps down another complaint and back to ill's cell goes Marsh. The carpenter bases his defiance on the fact that one of his nieces went blind and another died shortly after being vaccinated. Whether Marsh, the school board, or the judge is more stubborn is debatable. Little Eugene is the goat, of coin-so. lie's not getting any education.

CHAPTER XV "J TOLD you I'd never let you run away from, me!" Bret saW, for it was Bret, holding tier fast, looking down into her eyes. "You jnay harts dene that to some other fellow— remember I told 'you I thought you'd run away from someone?— but you're not going to run away from me!" Apparently she was not, as she could hear the rumble of the mid- Night train, shakiug the little platform as it went on by. "How did you know I was running away?" Connie asked. "Instinct, perhaps." Bret laughed. "I've been plenty miserable these last days, honey. So miserable I couldn't stand it any longer. 1 f c u I had to see you tonight. I rode by, got Eloise to come to the door— and made her tell me where you had gone. She your message, sweet- gave me heart." "And you came after me!" That meant that lie was not afraid, that her money did not matter, that he loved her, regardless! "I'd have followed you to the end of. <he earth," he said. "I've been pig-headed, stubborn—and yes, I reckon I did forget thnt love is the biggest thing in the world, more important than ;ill tire gold in it. But you must admit, dear, it gave me quite a jolt to learn who you really are." ttt, AS he talked he had led her back to liis car; now ho tossed her bag into the back, held open the door for her with a flourish and n bow. "KJhere are we going?" Connie ask,-d. Not that she cared.' She w*y so deliriously happy that she <V--J not care about anything. Bret '«t forgiven her for her. decep- <rm; he understood why she had Mrted as she hod—he was hero at k«r side now, which was the most Important thing ol all. "Where?" He turned to look Sown at her, su little and lovely, as, he had said, at his side—the s\yeet curve of her cheek, the bright intensity of, her.'eyes. "We're going to find the first justice o£ the prace that we can locate in this part of the country, and at this rather outlandish hour. We're going to rout him out ol his nice warm bed, too, and tell him to get busy and change your name once more. For the last time, Hits ..." "Oh, Bret!" It was all that she could say, but it was enough. He had not waited even for that much; he had switched on the ignition, thrown the little car into gear; they were speeding back, almost as fast as lie must have come. She gave a little sigh, nestled closer to him. Yes, that was all that counted. lie loved her, because she was herself, just as sire loved him because he was Bret Hardesty, no other. There was no rhyme nor reason in love; perhaps no logic. Yet she had been right when she had told Eloise it could surmount any obstacle, that it was greater than life itself. c< * * IT was no easy task, as Bret had predicted, to find a justice of the peaci at Uiat time of night. Tlie Or.': place they slopped it was impossibl, ;o arouse anyone, but at the next, Bret pounded on the door persistently until finally he succeeded in getting a response. This was not tlie sort of wedding that Constance Corby, the richest girl in the world, should have had. Not the sort of wedding (hut Connie had dreamed of having one day. That would have been a gorgeous and lavish affair, with a thousand or more guests, flashlights flaring, reporters waiting for interviews, a crowd of the curious public pressing outside the canopy that led to the church, mounted policeman to keep -them in order, an escort on motorcycles lo clear a paili. Connie would have worn white satin, fashioned by one of Ihe leading Paris creators, a veil thai would have stretched for yards and yards, a prayer book bound in white leather in her hands and a bouquet of rare white orchids. There would have been a dozen bridesmaids in rainbow colors; an organ murmuring "O Promise Me"; rice and old shoes, champagne, cake with while icing, tier upon tier. Instead, this wedding Jook place in the front parlor of a small frame house in a little mountain town. Tlie parlor smellcd strongly of mothballs. The light from the chandelier made a glistening mirror out of the round ball ^pot on Ihe justice's head. His wife, act- ins; as witness, her hair done up in curl-papers, yawned openly more than once. This was no: out of the ordinary occurrence to her, young people were so'impatient; she and her good husband were often routed out of bed at all sorts of unearthly hours t-j "tie the knot," not realizing, the poor young things, how long it would be that way, once done. The bride was gowned, as tlt<} society column might have phrased it, in a somewhat worn navy blue suit and a cheap, but saucy and becoming, little blue felt hat. Her voice shook a little when she said "I do!" and she clung tightly to the arm of the groom. The groom's voice boomed 3tH, filling the whole parlor, when lie gave his vows; there was a grim line of determination about his nice mouth. . , "Whom God hath joined to-( (& geiher, let no man put asunder..." " ^ Ihe ancient and familiar words held a strange poetic beauty—and then Connie was in Bret's arms, his lips on hers—and they were i man and wife. • » * * < "REMEMBER," Bret said stern- : A ly, tucking her into his car wilh his most masterful air, "your name now, young lady,' is Mrs. Breton Hardesty—for keeps. Don't you ever try to change it, or forget it for one minute!" ; "Mrs. Breton Hardesly," Connie said, lingering over the name. It sounded almost frightening, yet it was a beautiful name. One to he proud of, to live up to ami treasure and rcspeci. It was Bret's ' gill to her; a beautiful gift. She looked at the plain gold band that Bret said had been his mother's and with which he had made Connie his wife. He had i said he would get her a much finer one, but this she would keep al- • ways, nevertheless. Tomorrow the headlines would blaze wilh (he news that Con- > ; stance Corby, the richest!girl in the world, was married to an unknown and poor young engineer. / Tomorrow she would become that rich girl again. Slie would send Uncle Tippy a wire; she would instruct him lo see that the real Katie Blyn was well repaid and lo allow her to return to her own world. Would she be glad, or sorry? Connie wondered—hoping that it would be the first of these. Tomorrow Rodney would know that Connie had run away from him forever; that he had indeed lost her now. But this was tonight. Her wedding night. Tomorrow did not 3xist. This was the beginning of a girl, who was not the old Constance Corby, nor Katie Blyn, hirf still another girl who had givetf her heart and her life into th» keeping of this man at her side . ..
