The contention i'ra|Uent)y is I'™"' that the United Stales rapidly is Incoming a .nation of impolite ami discourteous people. Persons who have conic oil' iiecoml best in an nltercrition with a mulic cop, or with another motorist, are inclined to shake (heir heads and complain about tho decline of common courtesy. Some bemoan the fact that it is now common practice for men to keep then- hats on in elevators, and allow women to. stand while they remain seated in u street car or bus. Children, it is argued, are less inclined to respect their elders, and more inclined to disregard old maxims such as "Silence is golden" and "Speak when you're .spoken to." The questions raised hero may be m'ore or ICES academic, but they lend interest lo a recent survey which tho Union Inspectors Club, working with the WPA, made in a "politeness survey" among children of every age, color, race and ecnomic class in New York . City. Here are some of the facts disclosed: Underprivileged children from tenement districts arc more polite than those from fashionable neighborhoods. Fifty boys and girls s«id they be' lieved use of "Sir" or "Ma'am" when addressing elders constituted "servil- Many of the chilth'en'del'cijdcd their " right to talk whenever they chose, regardless of whether it meant interrupting their elders. A large number of boys voted that tipping of hats is unnecessary. Most of the children believed subway pushing to be not a mallei' of discourtesy but necessary to get somewhere. The boys, as a whole, were found 'to be more courteous and polile than the girls. Chinese children were tlic most' polite of any nationality .studied, followed by .those of Italian, French, Japanese and Irish descent. American boys and givls were the rudest and most discourteous of the whole lot. It is a sad commciitaiy, indeed, that native-born children, with all the advantages which a wealthy and progressive nation can provide, should be lacking in politeness when compared with DUTOUKWAY children \vlio live in sijimlid tenements, play in the street, and grow up in the rougher strain of society. Taken us a whole, il may be that our politeness as u nation is no worse than it was 50 years ago, and that the average person is not really rude but merely the victim of our hurry-up eiv- ili'/alion. But il would appear that our children could lake a lesson in common courtesy from the "lieiilhen Chinee." -ide Of CitisMis The nation could use a few more folks like Lawrence Nody of Trcmont, 111., born on a Swedish island in the Baltic Sea. Nody, .allhoiiKli !)0 yearn old, walked and hitch-hiked 17 miles to I'coria recently to obtain his I'mal cHr/.ensliip piipors. He returned home the same way. ilo hadn't learned until recently that lie failed to obtain final papers when he arrived in 1801. Here's a man— aged, infirm, Hearing the century mark — who was willing to travel IM ilifl'iciill miles to ensure his rijjhl lo vote. And lots of native-born citizens won't walk around the corner to east a ballot. 'High Cost Of Filibusters When occasions like the aiiti-lyiich- in(! bill filibuster come, up in Congress, the average citizen is likely to view it from one of two slants. Either he'll chuckle at the .spectacle, or he'll growl about how Congre.'is wastes its valuable Time. Few stop to reckon the actual tost to them as taxpayers. For instance, Senator Allen J. Kl- lender of Louisiana recently held the floor for .six straight days. During that time, talking mostly to empty seats, he spoke enough words to (ill 105 page;; ol" the Congressional Record. The record costs $50 per page to print, so Ellemlcr's six-day .speech cost the lax- payers ?5,250. Even the fact that the speech was interspersed with- such pungent re-marks as "Father Divine's followers believe lie was not born, but combusted," will not make the cost any easier lo bear. The people (Japanese) arc convinced that the war in China Is not a land-grabbing expedition. They liave been told thnl It Is a campaign lo save China (roin the menace of communism. —Rev. Albert W.

Into these last month:: had been crowded almost as much actis'ity us during (heir honeymoon. They had followed the sun and Ihe rest- Jess pursuits of gaiety, the never- ending search for new thrills and excitement that was the custom of the golden world into which Connie had been born. one lo the ncxl, a frantic rush somewhere else again. Or so il seemed to Bret iind so now he complained lo Connie on (his, Ihcir first anniversary. "Why don't \vc slay put lor a change?" he asked. "When are we going lo selllc down, honey, as we said we would, to the serious business of living? We can't keep this up forever, you know." He had come inlo Connie's dressing room, where she sal, put- ling Ihc last touches la her hair. They were having a dinner that evening in celebration of Ihcir anniversary. Tliis was not the first time Bret had voiced these same thoughts He seemed lo be voicing them more repeatedly lately; more pcr- sislcnlly. Connie turned lo look at him. He did not look like the man she had married—although Connie did not recognize thai fact —any more than she looked as she had when she had pretended to br Knlie Blyn. He was just as tall, as broad of shoulder; hie eyes were as dark and direct; it was not tha he wore immaculate white lie aiu lails instead of i-oiigh tweeds There was somelhiiit: more; some- Ihing that did not have to do will oulward appearances. For outwardly, at least, Bret had ndaplcc himself very well to his wife's golden world. "We could keep it up torev'cr, i we chose," Connie answered. Sh< thought how handsome lie looked Siie hoped, though, he was not go ng lo be difl'icult tonight of »1 inies. "What's the matter, darling iren'l you happy?

But he id not offer any further demon- tralion. She was a little witch; lie knew she could lurr. him aside rom all seriousness by means of 'lose slender arms and sweet soft ps.

Do I look beautiful 'tiotigli lo please you, my husband?" "You always look beautiful to lie," he said.

"I expecl lo love you slill aflei one whole lifetime!" His lone was sharp. "Bul you're cross with me!" She linked an arm through his, urged him toward Ihc door. "Tins is no lime, darling, to be cross. Or to start talking seriously about working at life and marriage. . .." "That's just il," Bret said. "There never is time for that. We're always on the go, surrounded by people, rushing back and forlli. I though I we mighl have n few minutes alone, before we bad lo go down lo meet our guests, commence the feverish round of gaiely once more. . . ."
