Supreme Test Faces Private InilUive Harry Hopkins' warning that we shall probably have at least '1,000,000 people "normally unemployed" in even Hie best of good times is a sharp rc- miiVder that we can't expect rising business indices to solve all of our problems for us. We might as well'make up our minds, says Mr. Hopkins, that a good many people arfi ''going to have to get their share of the national income by means of various types of government benefits." , Why? Because, he explains, we don't need all our man-power to produce the goods that we can consume; because there ia always a certain mim,- ber of people who just can't earn their own 'living, anyway; because people keep on living after they get too old to work. If Mr. Hopkins is correct—and he ought to know what he is talking about, having had his nose up against the relief grindstohc for a long lime— \ye are going to have to accept' the fact that the relief problem is a permanent responsibility. This carries along with it some far- reaching implications about the functions of t.he national government. A continuing responsibility like this one will inevitably be left in the lap of the government. By accepting it, the government must automatically make itself responsible .for the : underprivileged as a group—not'"merely for (lie people who arc actually on relief, but for all the low-wage people who will go on relief the moment the economic machine slips its gears a bit. That is to say that the government will be expected to see to it that a. square deal is provided for the people from whom the relief rolls are recruit*].—the sharecroppers, the tenant farmers, the casual and migratory workers, UK unskilled laborers, and so on. All of that adds up to quite a load of responsibility. No one can expect that the government will carry it indefinitely without demanding the power that goes with responsibility. Now it is extremely unlikely that the average American wants to see his government given that power—for BLYTHEViLiJ (A1»Q CoWliER it would involve, among other tilings, ' the power to fix hours and wages in industry, and the power to regulate agriculture, both powers that returned to the dust when the NRA and the AAA dit'il. Yet that is the sort of thing we arc facing if we sit back and resign ourselves (o the continuing existence of a 'government-supported army of -1,000,000 unemployed. Here, then, is tlie .supreme challenge to private initiative. If it can absorb these unemployed, prove that consumption in a free land can keep pace with production, and, in short, solve the problem by abolishing it, we can forget about this ialk of giving the government wider powers. If it can't, Ave are going to bear such talk in evcr- incrcasing volume. Peace in The I 1C the .signing of an agreement between the Carnegie-Illinois Steel Co., and the steel workers' union means that the much lalked-of "labor war" in the steel industry this spring is not going Co take place after all, it ranks with the brightest news of the winter. No one needs to bo told that a life- sized struggle between steel masters and -steel workers would be fearfully costly—costly to capital, costly to labor, costly to the nation as a whole. The agreement signed at Pittsburgh does not, of course, cover the entire industry. But it is a very broad hint, to say the least, that the way of peaceful cooperation is going to take the place of armed conllict. Which menus that our recovery program can go forward with renewed confidence. Lesson in Child-Rear! IIP o • The Chicago woman attorney and one of the two girls she reared to do "as they darn well pleased" are in the news again. Several months ago one of her daughters, 16, eloped. Now the rugged individualism of the other girl, IB, has expressed itself in a fan dance in • ft theatre. In each incident, the mother apparently forgot her child-training philosophy ami /lew into indignant action; then relaxed and chuckled over the antics of her darlings. To thoughtful newspaper readers, this must all be very entertaining— .and instructive. If results of the mother's child-rearing policy teach anything, the lesson seems to bo that young daughters should not bo allowed'to do as they darn well please.

Jennifer uig- ged gently at Tuck Ainslcy's sleeve.* Slie snuggled lo him in the low-slung roadster. "Please be my lamb and slop he-re. Do you want to start something at this stage of (lie game?" He reached for the gear and pulled it back. "Young lady, are you trying lo kid me? This is schoolgirl stuff, slopping Ihc cav a block from your apavtmenl. I won't have it. You're a su-ange mixture ot a sophisticated woman and a child. I can't done you out." "Jusl make up your mind that I'm a Jcmme ja'.a'.n, or was," siie said, lowering hci' voice and brushing his cheek with hers, "until 1 met you." 4 i. « ' JENNIFER look oil her hat and " laid her head back against the cushion, staring up at the stars. She look a deep breath. "This is a night for adventure, darling. Aren't you glad I made you put (ha top down on the car? An April night and an April moon! There'll be so many others and we won't be together. It makes me sad. I've never known anyone like you, Tuck, and 1 feel Jonesome just lo think that some day I'll lose you. You'll share this same moo'n wilh someone else." He drew her close lo him. Her lithe figure fitted 'smoothly into his arms, her soft lips brushed his cheek, Ihe perfume of her mingled with the soft scent of the night air. "I may," he said, "but why shouldn't we see it again, and again logclher?" 1 For an inslaul her eyes opened and looked over his shoulder into (he future. She smiled to herself in the darkness. ' ; He had said it, she said to herself and slipped gently out of his embrace. 'Tomorrow at four at Grace's," she said aloud, and. kissed the tips of his fingers gently. Then, she ran out of his sight. She was breathless when she ran up the steps and let herself into tlio hall of Ihc apartment house. • Then, she slopped, freshened her lips, smoothed her hair. She glanced anxiously at her wrist-watch. It was 1:30 mid she'd have some tall explaining lo do if Daphne was at home. ! Daphne was at homo. Daphne, still in her cherry-colored taffeta evening frock, was lying on the lounge with her arms raised and her hands under her head, contemplating Ihe ceiling as though soine lovely line were written there. Jennifer paused uncertainly in the doov-way and stalled for an opening line. "I thought you were never coining home," Daphne said quite un-' expectediy. "Your bridge lasted iate at Helen's. Oh, Jennifer, u-liat do you think?" Jennifer sighed with relief and said she didn't think. She knew from the stars in Daphne's eyes, from the flush that laid pink petals on her cheeks, that her role was to listen—a role for which she was ! grateful. 44* E silvcr-sandlcd fool swung beside the sofa. The other twisted back and forth and held Daphne's gaze. "I may be wrong but I Iliink Larry is in love with me." 'Dope!" Jennifer reiorled. "I could have told you that a' long time ago. What happened?" "Happened? Nothing, except that he spent most of Ihe evening starling lo say something, clearing his throat and hanging onto my hand. Then he dashed off lo get his train and said he was going lo call me when'he got home. Oh, Jennifer, you don't suppose he was Irying to tell me bad news, do you?" "Do yon mean he's going to call you tonight?" . '. 'Thai's what he'said. 1'rS wait- ' e ing for his call now. 'Oh; dear, frightened." Jennifer sllfled a yawn.
