The Supreme Court Poll •;The NEA Service poll on • President Roosevelt's proposal lor reorganization of. the United States supreme court, in which the Courier News participated, produced interesting but far from conclusive results. • It may bo that the two-to-oue vote against the president's plan, registered in the poll, reflects American public opinion with some degree of accuracy—and then again it may be that it doesn't. '* The poll results are themselves full 1 of apparent inconsistencies. Take, for example, the case of Massachusetts and Connecticut, two states as much alike in the character, background and interests ot their populations as any ~r,vo, in the union. The poll shows Massachusetts rejecting the president's proposal by the overwhelming majority of 22,339 to 5,298, while ConuecU- \ cut approves it by 4,09(5 to 1,572. At , least a partial explanation of these seemingly contradictory results is found in the fact that a major part of the MassaehuscUs vote was cast by read- - crs of the Boston Transcript, which circulates almost exclusively among the Cabots, Lodges and other members of . the Bay State's aristocracy. More than any other important daily newspaper in -the United States, its subscription list is confined to the rich and well- to-do. We know r/othing about the papers through which the Connecticut bnllots were cast, but it is a safe bet that they have a different class of readers. A similar case is to be found nearer home. Missouri's vole in the poll was 13,730 in support of the president's plan to 5,361 against. Most of the ballots were cast through the St. Louis Star, a supporter of the court pro- grain, and they account for the result, shown for the state. 'A number of small Missouri dailies, including the Poplar Bluff Republic and the Cape Girarcjemi Southeast Missmm'an, also participated in the poll, but the adverse majorities which they reported were smothered by the Star's big vote.- The poll, as its sponsors admit, shows what some 400,000 of this country's 125,000,000 people think about the court plan, and that is all. The National Socialist State will under no circumstances capitulate before cither the convenience, the limitations, or the ill will of Ger. wan individuals. —Adolf Hitler. (AftK.1' COURIER A Bad Appointment The Arkansas Democrat has called to the attention of the State Hospital Board that a physician recently appointed to the staff of the state hospital : for • nervous diseases was dismissed from the staff of the same hospital four years ago after a legislative committee hud found him on duty in an intoxicated condition. Of course the gentleman in question might have mended) his ways in four years, but apparently he hasn't. Just 60 days ago he was dismissed from the federal service as a CCC camp physician on the recommendation of a board of officers which investigated charges that he had neglected a seriously ill CCC enrolled," that he had taken liquor into the CCC camp in violation of rules, and that on numerous occasions ho had appeared in camp in an intoxicated condition. If a physician in private practice- gets drunk it is a matter between him and his patients, who can go to another doctor if they don't like it. It is a different proposition when the man is a staff physician at a great public institution. The Democrat'has- performed a public service' in citing the record in this case and it is to be hoped that the matter-will get official attention.

She had once told Anne that she couldn't live in a one-room apartment because she had to have a bedroom lor running away,purposes. She had intended to tidy herself up but her real reason now was to 'give her- selE a few minutes of adjustment before she returned to ihis new and unexpected sister. When she was cool and fresh again she wont back to the living room through the kitchen and called to Tuck, "Give me a hand with the tray." Tuck placed the big tray with its silver cargo on the coffee table beside Jennifer. "Tea!" . : Jennifer looked up, sniffed. When she lid that, her nose wriggled hungrily as it had when she was a little thing. "How quaint! No cocktails, really?" She looked, Daphne thought, exactly 10 when she opened her eyes wide Ins: way, except that a 10- year-old would never have such cleverly rnascaraed lashes. "On occasions," she answered, "but fhis isn't one of them. I think you'll find the tea refreshing, the sandwiches and cake the best' Maggie has to offer, which is excellent." "Under the circumstances, we'll make the most of it," Jennifer said cheerfully. "Hoe in, Son." She Passed a plate of. sandwiches to Tuck and did very well by them herself, Daphne noted in grateful silence. Daphne, studying Jennifer, Daphne, picking up her tea-tra' didn't answer. "Run along, Tuck," she said a little while. "Jennifer has to her own unpacking. Maggie leaving and I'm tired." "Come back about 10, Tu- said Jennifer. •••''• When Tuck had gone, Jc.... said,."What are you going to tonight, D'a'ph? r'h'stc-for you . be here alone i while I'm haviii Tujr cniiiij fun. llluslralioh by E,.

I'm going to marry one," site said to Daphne. niter's ability for making the most of these. Daphne looked down at her own simple tailored frock and was a trifle surprised to find that her own figure compared favorably with Jennifer's. The knowledge did not lighten the fueling, how- over, that she was older suddenly. And very dull. "What do you think of our clever Daphne getting herself promoted to an executive job?" Tuck asked Jennifer. Daphne liked him rather more than usual for the way ho put it. Sometimes—very few times— Daphne permitted herself the emotions. * * * t-lK didn't know whether she poured tea and tried to assort her ^lightest of romantic conjectures about Tuck Airisley. She knew him for exactly what he was. But she was a girl and he was an altvac- tivc man who had long protested his devotion to her. Tuck, who'd been a crew man at college, who'd never done a day's work in all his 26 years,' who followed the races sporting events, who was so utterly unlike herself, was too attractive for any gill to pass up romantically without a bit of a "Get a promotion, Daphne? Lots more money?" Jennifer asked. "Yes, I'll tell you about it later What's this party tonight? Will I approve?" '<=. ».« JENNIFER hugged her silken " knees and her lovely face irielt- cd into wheedling lines Daphne knew all too well. "Daffy"—Daphne hated being called thai—"it's a very nice party that Pc-te Pompton's sister is giving for him at her • apartment at the Consular. She's having a gang in for supper around 11 and asked me to bring someone. I can't go a tone so your Tuck is taking me. Okay?" "I want Tuck to bring you home was pleased with Jennifer's poise or annoyed with her lack of consideration. She didn't know whether she was glad that Jennifer was growing up or sorry that she was no longer a child, but she did know that she recognized beauty—greater than she had cx- pccted-ripening In'Jennifer. struggle Jennifer had chic.

When Daphne didn't answer because she thought;Jennifer's remark in poor taste,''Jennifer.said penitently, "Good Heavens! Am I treading on anybody's toes? Is he your best beau?" , Daphne would liked to have slapped her. Instead, she ; laughed. "Unfortunately I haven't attained that status yeS," .Tuck.said quickly.
