Washington l''(tws •Another Dilemma. ' Washington struggles desperately lo pull itself o(T the sluirp horns of :\ dilemma, ami while policy wails mul ponders, no one can bo sure in wliicli direction the next move will be made. It will ho better for everybody when the picture clears. Here are the two horns: ^il companies hiive just been convicted at Madison, Wis., ot violating the antitrust laws by conspiring to lix Ihc price of gasoline—that is, by gelling together and mutually working out production ami distribution problems, willi a resultant agreement on the price. This violates the nuti-lrusl laws agamsl "combinations in ra;lr;iii)l ol' trade." Very well. But we have on Ihc law books ol' the country the Gtill'e.v Act, wliit'li makes it necessary for the conl industry to do almost exactly that • same 111 ing by law. In 1'ncl, not so long ago. under the NRA, we .had a national law under whose cotles many industries set about standardizing production, competitive practices, and to a large extent prices. Which road? Midnight oil burns in Washington in the e IT or I to deckle. On one side there is the feeling lhat restoration of true competition will bring prices' down (and wages, no doubt, with them), and thus bring about greater production and more jobs. On the other, there is "the fueling' that big business ttnils ouj>tH to-IJe'ril- Oowcd to get together and-set-universitl wage standards, trade practices, and, to a large extent, prices, always with the government .silting in to protect the wage-earner and consumer. That tends to eliminate competition, and raise botli prices and wages. Wage- lionr legislation follows this school of thought. Labor, at least as exemplified by John L. Lewis, seems to have espoused the latter course. But other segments of labor distrust it, feeling that it places labor's future in the hands of government boards and conferences, rather than in its own strong hands. To an outsider looking in, there would seem to be fundamental opposition between the two plans. Confusion must follow a policy that decrees with its right hand that industry must compete with industry, and labor with labor, and with the left hand decrees OUTOU11WAY that industry must join hands with industry in meting out the production and distribution lield, and in portioning out labor's share. Probably even this statement of the choice is too simple, i'robably here as elsewhere nothing will work but eternal compromise. Perhaps certain large industries .sucli as coal, and .steel, and utilities, must be permitted to combine under government auspices and supervision, while others, less highly integrated and widely orgsmir.od, must face the rigors of competition. Hut until there is something approaching si choice of policies, or at least a clear statement, of adherence to both in marlted-olf spheres, there is likely to be more marking time than we can well all'ord. Again The belief seems to be general thai confidence nicn and grafters mtisl sock out trusting widows of gullible old gentlemen with a life's saving in order to carry out tlieic crafty MIJI- chinsitons. Their schemes, it is sometimes sir- gncd, are too transparent to be swsd- lowod l\v worldly wise persons, lint if that's true, what's the explanation for (lie recent occurrence in WiUimiisporl, Pa., a thriving, modern city of 50,000. A slicker appeared before city council, presumably a group of intelligent men who liww what it's all about, and sold them on his idea for establishing a hatchery to produce a new "wonnlr.s;; chicken*' llefore the fit-ranger skipped town he had: cashed ?3UOO in worthless checks; obtained .f'200 in cash for new cars which he never delivered; required two prospective employes to post $400 in cash bond for non-existent jobs, suid collected $100 for a demonstrator which was never delivered.

No one was particularly slartled when I ho survey showed lhat more than 50 per cent of young men and women between the ages of tli and 2-1 drink liquor and believe marriage should be postponed until the age of 26. ]>ut isn't it a mailer of concern thiil. the study revealed that youth has scant faith in politics and politicians and (heir ability lo make democracy work '! Only 2 per cent of those interviewed said I hoy would ever consider entering polilies. Asked to name the things that mean success in politics, the young people gave such answers as: Money, graft, bribery, maciiino politics, propaganda, false promises and ignorance of the voters. lami Cfin in Ike BY ADELAIDE HUMPHRIES , NEA $«*•, IK. .OAST III- CIIAIUCTIIH.S ncvsTAxrr, COIIIIY— iiurol rlrlu-sl nirl In llii' jvorld. ii it !•: r ii » it ii i: n T v— h IJI-I.IKC' l.iilliU-r. uoi)\i:v Ik.Vi'll: III.ViN — C'oiuilc'u "dou- Illo." * * t v Ypsli'rd:i)-s H r er t lurHn tlu< (filileN tin if'fmnlc mul U'livri HU •Hhe limy \vln her divorce uacon- ICHlCtl.

There was no one in sight, no sound except the swish of waves lapping against Ihe sides of Ihe big while boat, whose lights shimmered in myriad reflections upon the dark water. Then as she started up Ihe plank, Rodney stepped from the shadows. "My deal'—you did come 1 . I was afraid you wouldn't. I eouldn'1 believe it, realty.

"I don't believe I ((iiilc understand yon." lie drew himself up; spoke stiffly. "I don't expect you lo. Unl 1 came to try to help you lo understand. I didn't want to run away from you again, Rodney. I'm never going to run from an3'thing again.' I've found that isn't the way lo escape, Ihe way lo find freedom—or happiness." Connie said. She hand on his sleeve; licr 'yes were full of a sort of pity, iei< smile sweet and sorrowful. "I tcm't blame you, Rodney, for fak- ng it this way. Hut at least, as said, I didn't run away again. You see I'm not going to divorce Jrel. That wouldn't do any good, would still bo married to him, Rodney. ' He would still be my ausband. Nothing could change hat, not oven ii I were married .0 you." "You never belonged together. I was all a mistake. He'll always jo different. Not of your world. Or you of his. . . ." - "Then we'll have to mnke still jnollier one," Connie said. "You sec, Rodney, there's something else—the strongest thing in the world, bigger than any of us, than Hie money, our foolish impulses and desires, than logie or reason. It's love, Rodney." "You think you love Bret, then?" know I love him. Oh, I was foolish enough for a little while io pretend that I didn't. I'm a great pretender, didn't you know that, Rodney?" Her laugh rang out on the still night air, rippling, edged with an acid bitterness. "I protend al whatever sinuses me for the moment. Al being miserable, or gay or somebody else— or even at being jusl what I truly am. I'm spoiled and pampcrer and young and foolish. I've always had everything, except (he one thing I wanted, that I could not buy with all my millions. Bui now, Rodney, I've grown up, at last. Maybe loo lale. I'm not sure For the thing I want, that is Maybe too late lo try again. To stop pretending for all lime. * * * J " A ND so," she finished, and new she hold out her hand l( him, "this is goodby, Rodney, im sorry I could not love you Sorry to have to hurt you a second time.

If I can find him. If hc'l give me another chance." "He will. No man could rcfus' you. You're very licruiliful, am desirable, Connie. And—no mat lev what you think, what you'v said about yourself—you're very brave, loo." "Thank you, Rodney dear. There were tears shining in he eyes, a tump in her throat. "I'n nol really. Though 1'jl try to hi Because you thought it' of mi Goodby again, my dear. 1 mus hurry. Will you explain to Cap lain Stevens? And—will you say a little prayer for me, Rodney? —I feel I shall need it." He did not answer, except with | liis eye.s, promising her anylhiiig wilhln Bis power lo give her. He stood, looking after her, as she turned, almost running, lo go | down the gangplank again, lo the car that she had kept waiting. Before she got in, she tuined I once more and waved at him.
