Puncturing the Spell of a New York Address For mail}' years it has been nil industrial custom for all companies to strive for the day when they can have their "headquarters" i'n New York. A iii'm begins business locally, it prospers, grows. Then conies the urge for a New York address, the magic of a letterhead carrying a number on Broadway or •Fifth avenue. And soon yon have the spectacle of the management of that local company moving to New York, its president and directors .ensconced on Long Island, and tlic local factory left to shift more or less for itself under salaried managers. Business management ought to 'question Ihe universal wisdom of .this, and to weigh against the unquestioned advantages of New York headquarters the advantages lost by pulling up roots from the old home town.. This often creates the feeling that .the locally- built enterprise is just an orphan after all, administered by those who have lost interest in the locality. Is this the dizzy idea of some provincial theorist? Not at all. It is the serious question posed by W. Averill Harriman, chairman's of the bonnl of the Union Pacific railway, who put it flatly up to the Bond Club in New York. Harriman called on business men to analyze quite frankly this concentration of industrial control and to "either justify it or change it." • Often there arc good reasons for a removal to New York, Harriman indicated. But too often the move is mad;! for no better reason than the "prestige" of a New York address, tho hope of better access to linancing, or ev<:!i just because the president or his family think it would be nice to live in Now York. In many such cases, Harrimau felt, "the weight of the values may be on the side of their moving to center.-; of their business activities or their production." This urge for removal to New York, Harriman felt, gives greater impetus than the situation pohaps warrants, to the criticism of .concentration of industrial control which is again rising to high pitch as it has in the past. Certainly no ni!c will apply to all business; each must decide for itself. But in a time when all social and busi- • ness trends are under criticism, and each is being made to justify itself . anew, it might be valuable for many OUT OUR WAY comi)«nie« to study this situation. Certainly, other tilings being equal, it to best for the management of an industrial firm to remain a» integral part of the community on which its business has been built.

Is Crop Control To Be Permanent) It is disturbing to find President nooserell ."peaking of the enactment of Die new farm bill mi the "winnini; of one more hallle for au underlying (arm policy that will endure." There are ccrtniii tcaluvfn ol the bill, or couree, which should to pcrmiinent, iiinuiig tlu'in the soil conscvviUlon iirovisions, designed lo liall. the nll-top-rnpid depletion of one of our primary national resources. But it the President's words signify llwt Iho administration contcmnliitcs ninklug crop control itself mi '•underlying" and "cndmlng" policy ot the Gov- crimicnt. he is (joinB further than some of th2 most ardent cli.'impions of (lie A A A and its s\ibslitulc measures have thus lur been williui; to uo. EciTclary of AtriciiUure Wallace made it clear when he Hist launched the A A A that, crop control wns iiiteiKled nr, a temporary device to compensate the farmer for the loss of liis foreign mnrkcts find lo offset the .subsidy Ihnt he, in common with other elements of the population, had been paying industry through an unreasonably liiigh protective tavilf. He left no doubt that crop control was meant to remain In force only until tho volume of foreign trade could );e built up again. Mcnmvlillc, it wiis to be one of the foremost duties oj the farmers to use their collective political power to work for the restoration ol international trade, and by this means to win back their foreign agricultural markets. In more recent years, however, Secretary Wallace seems lo have rrald less and less attention to Ihe need for restoring foreign markets ami more and more attention to building up sentiment for' crop control. This shitting of direction, we think, is Important—ami disquictiiv,'. For ff the farmer goes over ncrnmncnUy io (lie ranks of those ivlio follow the delusion of economic unlionnllsm, Ihe forces lighting subsidies and regimentation (the two. in ths linal analysis, are synonymous) will have lost a powerful ally. / 1C (he farm forces follow crop curtailment as a permanent policy, they will awaken some day to the hard reality (but they have pursued :i mtrngo. They will find themselves stripped m' their foreign _ ngriculluvnl markets, and they will find also that their traditional imkpcnd- 'cncc and individualism are gone. Tf [he accepted farm lenders are true to the confidence reposed in them, they will not forget that the long-range solution of the' farmer's troubles lies not in seeking permanent subsidies lor agriculture, but in removing subsidies in those fields where they constitute an unfair burden on the farmer. —St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

She was several thousand miles from home in an enemy country with a dangerous journey before her, and Jerry was impressed by the British navy on a ship called Iho Sunrise, undoubtedly i:i a helpless ami desperate state.

She suddenly noticed chat all the passengers wove looking at her. The coacli driver had turned in his seal to say lo her reprovingly, "1 ask you anain, M'ain, where is it you want to be set down?" "Oh!" s;ik! Polly. Then, "Let me on' at Corly, please, south of 'Deal!" Hoi- voice was i-inging wilh vilality. The passengers' faces all betrayed the fact that they hatl never before encountered such an amazing old woman. * * * T-jIS Majesty's brig Sunrise, cav- ' vying 30 guns, had moved out of (he gradually widenini- Thames into Die North Sea. She sailed like n fearless bird that can go where she wills, proud of her plumage ;md her standing. Now where the fair island of EngVind is at its broadest there is ;>. town called Lowestoft. As the Sunrise sailed north she pzsscd wilhin call of this port.

The, conversation of the two marines' could he heard in the hold. Jerry Whilfield said to Cabell Banks, ".We're close to shore!" Just those few words, bill ho spoke them so tensely that Cabell, who was lying in his hammock wilh closed eyes, came alert. He turned and opened his eyes to sec Jerry Whitfleld disappear up ihe ladder with the sofiness and swiftness of a cat. * « * S for Jerry, he was impelled by instinct entirely. did not enter into it. Reasoning He gained the deck, balanced his slender but powerful aody lor a moment for its greatest projection of strength, hurled himself toward die two baleful backs and struck down both men simultaneously. He had .'cached the edge of the deck and had a leg over the bulwark before two other marines seized him and brought him back. After" that things happened rapidly. There was a report to the Captain who listened attentively ond smiled oddly. A call was piped shrilly, calling all hands. Cabell, listening on the ladder of Hie hold, knew what this meant. He loo must go above. He went, with sick heart and dragging feet. To Jerry Whilfield, reason had returned. Instinct still surged within him—the old primitive instinct that writhes al the feel of a whip on naked ilesh—but reason dominated. Wilh a proud and scornful dignity lie vent where lie was commanded to go, permitted without useless struggle (he shirt (o be stripped from his back and his feet to be fastened to the gratings. Ho heard the command "Twenty lashes!" without mo vine his eyes from a distant cloud. Ho conscious then of nothing except his own superhuman determination to make no outcry. As lie turned lo go, afterward, Banks fell into step with him. The two prisoners went below. Banks said, "Here's some salve I bought from the surgeon's helper. I'll put it on for you." His aristocratic, ugly face was as white as death. "Thank you," Jerry .Whitlield said. Presently they pulled hemp slramls from the damp rope and resumed their game of yesterday and after that they spoke of how Ihe foliage would turning in Massachusetts, and of the scarcity of wild turkeys near tho"sct- llcd places. H was not until night, from the depths o£ a pain-filled sleep that Jerry shouted, "I'll gel even with .hem for this!" It was tho threat that cruelly automatically produces. * * * IN Boslon the hour was not so iale. Mr. Cabclt Banks, senior, was pacing the drawing room floor in his beautiful square Georgemi bouse on Beacon Street while his t] wife sat erectly before the fire sipping coiTce irom a small fragile cup and urging him io be calm. < Beside Mrs. Banks on the higli- armcd regencysofa sat a small, •ilmost-pretty, very inteUigoii/--. young woman, perhaps 22-yr-:tii old. Slio too sipped coffee. 1 slippered icct wilh the neat r(i)T i>on lacings around her qnkics ,vcre placed properly together on Ihe Persian rug. Her dress was slim and high waisled, squarely cut at the neck—identical in style, ndecd, with the frocks of Mazie Miller and the Empress Josephine, for while llirce countries were warring with ;ill their might, their women stood resolutely together as regarding short waists and light ;kirts. Prudence Winihrop was this girl's name, and her father was in business with the wircy old man who paced Ihe floor. She was very much attached to dial old man's son. She confessed as much now to his parents: "If Cabell comes Itonie and asks me, I shall accept inn. He's homely and high-strung but I find him stimulating. I am very fond of him." "Thank you, my dear," said Caboll's plump and proper mother. She leaned to kiss the cool young exclaimed. Vil vc wished Vfi cheek affectionately. . . . Mr. Banks too was pleased. "This .'>i highly appropriate!" he. ex' "Your father and I ha for some such thing to happen, . . . But where IS my son," he d e m a n d e d, returning to his \m anxiety. "What nsstiranee have we S| that he will ever gel home to us?" "No assurance," replied Mrs. Banks. "We can only hope and pray." ... As it was time for family worship, they called in the servants an<I set about it in the proper Boston way. Mr. Banks read from the Scriptures and offered up a stout prayer. He mentioned almost everyone in public lite- except the King of England and Vlic President of the United Slalcs, bolii of whom had offended him by causing il\is war. They all thought of young Ca- bcil as standing at the prow of the barkcntinc Hardy, avoiding the British and sailing home lo ihenv as good a Federalist as when he ~| had left them.
