Self-Reliani Citizens •-Have Recomc. Oddities 1C the people of the United States could loam a little something from the sturdy ..'citizens of East Lampotci 1 , Pa., the nUilo of the republic would improve with considerable speed. For the people of East Lampcler have made a strange, almost unprecedented request of the fddersil • government. They want it to stop trying to lend them, money for civic improvements. Some little time ago the PWA set aside $5G,000 to build ;i new consolidated schoolhouse for the benefit of the 'children of East Lampeter and vicinity. It was to replace several older school buildings, and it was just the \ kind of project that 09 out of 100 communities would accept with devout thankfulness, Now there happen to be 2,300 registered taxpayers in East Lanirjclcr, an'il ' 1,600 of them arc of the Amish and '. JUenuomlc faiths; and those faiths teach that it is wrong to borrow* , money at interest. So a public mass meeting was held, and a resolution w<is adopted slating that East Lampeter already lias plenty of schools, that the townspeople didn't care to go into debt to build a new one, and that Uncle Sam would be doing everybody concerned a favor if he would keep his money anil forgot all about the .school building he had planned. For several years now the federal government has been pouring out funds to slates .mid cifies; and thi.s is the second time, in all these years, that any group has declined to take what was offered. The other case involved a set of Menomince Indians in Minnesota, who turned down a government offer to build a new road across their reservation. As a spokesman for Secretary Ickcs remarks, "No- bo'tly else has ever said anything but 'Gimmee, gimmee.'" We have got so far from the old- fashioned virtues these days that the people of East Lampeler look positively (juamt. What? These people actually refuse to go into debt ? They are willing to get along with what they have, instead of replacing i t w itii something new? They don't feel they need the federal government's help in educating their children? What ails them, anyway? They are sadly behind the limes, ULY'i'liaVlLLB '(AUK.)' COUIUEU NBWS OUT OUR WAY obviously. Getting into debt is fashionable, almost inescapable, these days. So is the practice of discarding old possessions, still good for years of service, and replacing them with new ones. And so, too, is the habit of demanding that Uncle Sam help you do what yon used to do for yourself. That we yield to these things without a struggle, and at the same time demand that the federal government balance its budget, dismantle its growing bureaucracy, and cease asking for extended powers, merely proves that we Won't bother to be logical. Wo could leant something from the Amishmen and the Mennonites of East Lampeter—and from the Meno'minee Iixlinns, Make. Them. Americans Congress has a number of profoundly important measures to han'dlo this spring. But it is to be hoped that the pressure of this business does not cause Congress to ignore the Tydings- Gibson bill, which would make American citizens out of the 21,000 inhabitants of the island of Guam. This island has been under the American flag eveivsincc the war with Spain, but its people are neither flesh, fish, nor fowl. T% are 'not aliens, and. yet they are not Americans. They aspire to be American . eiti/ens, and have sent a delegation to ask Congress to give them that status; and at a time when America's other islands are asking everything from economic; rehabilitation to complete independence, this looks like u singularly mild request. The people of Guam feel like Americans and act like Americans. It is lo be hoped that Congress will lint! time- to pass the bill that will make them in fact Americans. . Red Herring? Within the last several weeks, Adolf Hitler has come at least two croppers. He threw in the sponge after a long battle with high church officials; and he was presented an ultimatum by Germany's financial brass hats, who declared that unless some of the nation's resources were devoted to trade and less to armaments, wholesale disaster was'immin- ent. It was shortly afterward that, seizing upon an unfortunate statement from America, Hitler's personal news organ brewed a great pot of trouble. To divert the minds of their people from domestic troubles, dictators frequently resort to the device of hurling loud accusations at other countries. So it is wondered if Nazi indignance over llir American incident was really sincere, or merely a ruse to keep Germans from suspecting, perhaps, that their leader is slipping.

"Yes," Daphne drew on her gloves, "it was all my fault and Jennifer is beautiful so I guess I'd bolter get a grip on myself. Why shouldn't he fall for her?" Anne pulled Daphne down on the bed beside her. "I'll tell you why, you litlle fool; because Jennifer isn't worth your little finger and because she is a ... well, what kind of a girl is she who'd do a thing like this to her own sister?

TENTACLES, WHICH ARE CAPABLE OF STUNNING- SMALL SEA-ANIMALS Anne closed the door softly at her back and they wen: alone for the first time. "Lovoly parly, Anne. Mr. Todd told n-.c that ho wanted you to do their spring book." She powdered her nose. ''\ know all about thai so let's skip it. What 1 want la know is what's happened to you?" _ "We'll ialk about ii some other time, riarMnp. I hear your guests .screaming ioi you. That's a sure Bign ot success.' 1 "Let 'era scream. Oh, I wish I'd had a chance io talk to you but you know how it is." Daphne was gctiing into her wrap. "Ol course, I do. Give Ine a ring at (lie office tomorrow." icr. , , And soino day it would hurt That some day was still sloocl at her back, looking into the same mirror. "What's the mailer, Daphne? You look as though th= devil himself had chased you across the country?" Eaahne shoo her head and bit tho ;n an effort to keep back Daphne nodded her head "Thu job?" v "Mo," Daphnn snid.

Not by one small sign did Daphne Brett betray thc thing that happened to her when she heard his name on her sister's lips; thc swift, hot pain that smote her and retreated slowly along an aching path of memory. She picked up thc threads where she had left them off and was astonished to see how few they were. She hadn't realized how completely Larry had ''lllcd her life; how many pleasant compan- !0n= she had let go when shs'had louna Larry. your type but I'm sure I could do it and I think he's interested.

Tliat new habit o£ saying, "I've got a date." Not saying where or with whom. Leaving her to guess that it would oo with Larry. * * '* QNE night Daphne allowed herself to get "weepy." She saw again the tender gestures lliat were part of Larry. Only the girl who received them was Jennifer and not herself. In thc midst of her misery the telephone rang (ii She reached for it and said, •*> Hello," in a strangled voice Is Miss Brett in?" It was Larry. , "No," she said and put the receiver back. ! Oh, Jennifer it isn't fair! You're J always had everything. The best ' dolls when wo were little.

When she finished she studied he list of things to do with approval. "I'll start tomorrow," she said to herself. "With $3000 1 ought:to,be abie'to have a .little fun. Not to mention fireworks." When Jennifer came in, about nidnignt, v/ith no explanations', Daphne said lo her. "What's Gordon Herzberg's home address, do you know?"
