Elevation Of Keck Would Be Wise Action We believe Governor Carl E. Bailey's action will meet with general appro- vs,\, not only in Mississippi wiinly and Northeast Arkansas but over the entire state us well if he names Circuit Judge Grover E. Keck oi' this cily to 1\11 tlic vacancy on tlie Arkansas t>n- preine court created by tlic death u( Justice Turner Butler. lJ((C(tiesUoiial.>ly Judge Keck is experienced nnd able. The at- tiUide he has consistently shown in the handling'of cases in liis court is emphatically allcstcit to, by I he mnm- bers of the bar in the second judicial district. Very rarely during his years on the 'bench IUIK Judge Keck bcon overruled,, by the supreme court in his judgments. Certainly the proper sleii for (he governor to take at tin's time is to elevate some (IcKervinjj member of the lower courts to the supreme court. It is always \ycll, \VR believe, for the higher court to obtain its mc"i!:nrsliip from the loweo courts because of tlic actual experience in trial work and observation of the effect of lojjal principles in operation Dial a trial judge ob- taiiis. If the governor decides to elevate some trial court judge to the supremo bench his selection of Judge Keck •,woukl be a wise, regardless and in spite of the. political implications .that have been thrown about :the ,gov- " deliberations over t_he court 'appointment. * , Jiiclee Keck has a background of service in public office (hat well (its him for the post but at the same time lie has the no less essential qualifications of high citizenship and integrity so necessary to a competent judiciary. He is not in the position of a politician desperately seeking a public post. In fact, except for the high honor that comes to any member of the legal profession^ with service on the supreme court, Judge Keck would probably prefer to continue to serve the second judicial district, the largest in the state, as its senior judge and make his home here always insteal of being forced to sojourn the larger I>!\rt of every year in Little Rock. There is little doubt but that Judge Keck can continue as circuit judge of the second district as long as lie desires. He has been elected to the jmlg- JANUARY ship for four four-year terms, beginning: bin lirst term in 1923 after serving three terms as Mississippi county judge. Never since his election to the bench has he had' any serious opposition as reflected in returns of the primary elections. Judge Keck well deserves the appointment. We repeal that Governor Bailey 'can make no better choice than to name him to (ill the high court vacancy. Fancy a Nation With No Daily Newspaper One of America's favorite indoor i;porls is criticizing the newspapers. Writing letter. 1 ; to 'the editor seems to be the liobby of a good many cili- Mils, and a lot of the letters arc directed at the newspaper itself, or its writers. Let a comma be misplaced, a word bo misspelled, a statement be not quite accurate, and there always are plenty of persons eager to point out the error. Even the President takes a crack a I the newspapers occasionally when their policies don't coincide with his. Hut what if-there were no newspapers? What would happen if a time suddenly came when citizens no longer could obtain their evening, morning, or weekly papcts for a few pennies? The good people of Portland, Ore., can answer th;it question. A typographers' strike cloned down all three newspapers in flic city and for live- day", Portland .squirmed. Hero are jinmc of tlie results of the lack of newspaper. 1 ;: Business was adversely ad'ccled because stores couldn't advertise. Sports events had to be canceled because they could not be announced, 'lilie same was true of club and society meetings. People got married, and divorced and had babies, and no one knew about if except their closest friends. Dogs, puckclbooks, and jewels stayed lost because there were no "lost and found" columns. Firms which wanted to hire work- era were unable to do so because neither could advertise. Absurd and exaggerated rumors were, rife because there wore no news papers to publish accurate information. As only the high-spots of the news were broadcast, the populace knew few details of the Sino-Japancse war, Uii- congressioiial silualion, a n d other events. No one knew what shows to go to because the theaters couldn't advertise. Those who write letters to the editors may well pray, even as they place pen to paper, that the newspaper;) will continue to take criticism in their olride and keep on plugging away at the sometimes-thankless task of going to press every 'day.

IlretoD linrdeilr fur keeiiH, CUAPTKR XVI r rOMORROW came, as tomorrows will, turning into today, and the whole world knew that Constance C'orby had married a struggling young man with practically nothing to his name. The whole world hummed and buzzed wilh (he news, exclaimed, cither approvingly or will) eomieimia- tion, prophesied as to whether or not inch a. strange marriage possibly could last. None oi which bothered Connie or Br;t in (lie least. They hud each other, which was more than suflicicnt LO:- the present. They were in -;ha'- first idyllic stage of lionoymooniiic when a rosy glow transfigured and enveloped everything; an interlude of ecstacy in which reality does: not ?xisl. They stayed at a small, unpretentious hotel in (he nearest good- sized town so Ilia I Bret could drive back and forth for the two weeks remaining until his bridge was completed. They had the bridal suite, which was far from elegant, but it is doubtful it they noticed thai. The only thing Connie no- ticetl was that the days were suddenly longer and exceedingly empty. That was because Bret \vas gone. The hours when he could he wilh her were all too short. "As soon ns the bridge is done," she said, "we'll go away somewhere so that we can he together every single moment. We'll have a real honeymoon." "I like ihiil!" Bret's dark eyes were teasing. "Isn't this n real honeymoon, Mrs. llardesty?" "Only when you are here," she told him. "Only half of one, because of that. We shall go away, darling, for a long, long while— urountl Ihe whole world, perhaps." e v * JJRET'S dark eyes grew sober. "You forget, my sweet," he said, "that I'm not in a position to take my wife traveling around the world. If we went, we would have to go on your money. I- don't believe I'd like that." "You forget," Connie reminded, "that my money is now our money. We agreed that we were going to work everything out together, and that means sharing everything together, too. .We said we were not going to be afraid of money, or of anything else under the sun, as long as we had each other." Bret said that that was what they had. agreed. Stilt ho did not liko the idea ot anolliq' honeymoon under those conditions. He had not realized yet that he had married Constance Corby. Connie, on the other hand, seemed to. have slipped back, quickly and easily, into her true self again. After all, that was what she had always been. With the exception oi Dial brief lapse when she had beer. Katie Blyn. It was perfectly natural for her, having experienced that metamorphosis, to decide to circle the globe, or do anything else if she wished. One of the first things she did, after she received a wire from Uncle Tippy wishing her happiness and scolding her for having achieved it in the way she had, and sending her several thousands ot dollars with a letter oi credit for the bank, was to shed that other oilier girl's clothing. She was a bit tired, she discovered suddenly —one day thai dragged unusually long with Bret away—oi Iho shoddy navy suit and the black dress and all of those somber, sensible things. That evening when Bret, tired and dusty, came back to the bridal suite lie found a girl lie had never seen before, a girl whose golden curls had been carefully shampooed and waved, whose nails were like coral jewels, whose slender figure wore a lovely frock of softest blue, matching the shining excitement in her eyes, whose ankles were encased in cobwebby hose and feet in high-heeled, dainty slippers. In brief, a girl who might hnve stepped from a page of a fashion magazine. * * * •"• "QOOD Lord!" he exclaimed. "What have you done to yourself, honey 1 ?" "Don't you like me?" Connie executed a little dance step around him, showing oft her finery. "You're very grand," he said. There was a puzzled look in his dark eyes. One could not tell whether he was pleased or not. "But I'm afraid to touch you." He raised his hands, dropped them, comically, at his sides.' "Oh, you needn't be," she said lightly. "See," catching him by the hand and pulling him on into the other room, "there are plenty more pretties, should you muss this one up!" As she spoke, her lingers started to unhook the blue dress, she stepped out of it, swished another over her shiningly coiffuered head. This was an evening gown, ex- (rcmely decollete, Us cloth o£ gleaming gold, shimmering like a ' knight's polished armor. She kicked off the blue slippers, wig- \ gled into matching gold one;, caught up a wrap of deep green velvet, with an enormous collar of white fur. Again she pirouetted around and around for him. * * * "VOU look very grand," he said again. "But you look so different, not at all like thc girl I married. Beautiful, of course, no one could deny that. But no," lie shook his head, "I think I liked Ihe way that other girl looked better.V; Tlie dancing light went out-tff Connie's eyes. "Darling," she said, "aren't you being a bit—well,; stuffy? Those clothes really were \ impossible, you know. I looked a '< fright in them." "You looked all right to me," lie \ insisted. He looked now, as Connie had first thought upon seeing him, like a young man who was very certain as to what ho liked . and thought. "That thing you've got on ... it's scarcely decent, showing so much of your neck and i arms. I liked your hair the other" way." "But I'm not that other girl any longer," Connie said. The hidden -. tiro leapt into her eyes. "This Is the way I always looked, the \-rvf I wore my hair. You'll have to- get used lo me." "I suppose I shall," Bret said. He turned away from her. He had not even kissetf her! She ran to ., him, burst into tears, flung her arms around his neck. "I'll send them all back, if you'' want me to!" she sobbed. "How! can you treat me like this, \vltf our honeymoon isn't even over?'/t wanted something to do, to amusejs myself, l wanted to make mysc/if, ! lovely, for you." j" "There, there!" Bret said. Hei; palled her. shaking shoulder, but- 1 had she glanced tip she would I have seen that his expression had * not changed; his dark eyes were somber. "Of course, I don't want you to send them back. Not if you want to keep them. And by this way, this honeymoon is over. The ; bridge is finished. And now, sweetheart, you'll have to give me a little more time to gel used lo you—please r.emember that," Her arms tightened around his neck; she ceased crying, moved closer. She had won in Ihis, the first quarrel they had had since their marriage. But something told her that tears and tantrums, maybe even I kisses and young slim arms, might ' not always win*if Bret felt himself: entirely in the right.
