Thus we find <t'l senators, 28 of them Democrats and 16 of them Republicans, most of wlnfm arc classified as conservatives, signing a lound- lobin agreement to support, constitutional amendments requiring a two- thirds vote of the .supreme court to invalidate acts of congress and authorizing congress to override .supreme court decisions by a two-thirds vole after a congressional election has intervened. The adoption of such nmcndmeiiU, obviously, would have an oflect upon * the powerj of the snpiemo conit and tlie fundamental character ol our government much more far reaching than would Mr. Roosevelt's simple proposal for changing the personnel of the couil. Most of the senatorial Coos of the piesident's plan who havp pledged their support to these pinposcd amend- mentb, it seems -safe to say, did so with no i'dea of bi inging about their adoption. The situation seems to be that sciia- tonal opponents of the president's plan have awakened to the fact that the country is leadv for some curb upon ' judicial fiuUiontj. 1C by advancing proposals nioic radical^ tlian those of the president t))cy can divert sufficient support from his program to bring about it.s defeat, 'While v at the same lime justifying themselves in the eyes of advocates of court change among the \6teis at home, they will have shown themselves not lacking in political Fagacily. 11 remains to be seen, how- evci, if they can get away with it. The l*'ariu Progictm The feeling of cxuspcnlUon on the pail of many farmers at the vay the fedcial soil conservation program has been handled is thoroughly understandable' J At the same lime. howe\cr, it is to be hoped that the'j \\ill not permit well justified lescntmenl al the bungling and delay which loo frequently base characterised administration' of the progiam to blind them to its fundainenlal soundness. To qualify for soil conserving and soil building payments under the pro- OUT OUR WAY grani there is re<|uired of most farmers nothing that it would not iii the long run be to their advantage to do anyway. It boils down to a system of subsidizing intelligent and profitable farming nietho;(ls. Naturally there is some nonsense mixed up in it, inevitably injustices occur in its application, and unfortunately the efficiency which which it has been administered leaves a lot to be desired. But it remains a good thing—a measure of protection against the disastrous results of over-production, an incentive to a sound and fertility-protecting system of crop rotation, and a source of cash income. If cotton prices maintain their pros-* cnl level or go higher it is probable that this year's cash' income might be increased by abandoning the entire government program and planting every feiicc corner in cotton. Rut it does not require a long memory to recall what that sort of procedure lea'ds to. H Ineans lower cotton'prices for everyone, it raises production costs arid lowers living standards on every farm which resorts to it, and it depletes the soil fertility on which the income oL' future years and future generations depends. • ' •In the long run the welfare and progress of agriculture in this predominantly agricultural region depends iip- on'-.the ^following .of practices not greatly different from those set forth iii the soil; conservation program. The government, after what seems to most of us to have been entirely unreason- 1 iibio delay, is now paying to the farmers of ftiississippi county nearly §],000,000 for following those practices last year. That is iii effect a million-' dollar bribe for taking the very liie'tit- cinc which we iiced. The 'medicine is good for us aridAve might as well keep on collecting the money that comes with it, even if payment is a lillie slow.

Mnrlha joined her in the search, but lo their astonishment nothing had been stolen. The washbasin was still damp. Apparently Neal had shaved, then slipped from the trailer. "He must have got out while we were going slow through some of those towns back there," Martha said. She looked at Betty "I wonder il he's just—just odd, or whether there's something behind all this?" Belly grinned. "I Ihink he's just odd. Or maybe nol oven odd Suppose you were a man, am you'd hooked a ride, and had lo borrow a washbasin to shave in —all from a couple ot girls ,\Vou!dn'l you wanl lo take a run out powder yt Ihc earliest uppor .tunity?" ''Perhaps you're right," Marlh said. "Want to start the dinner while I hunt up the manager and find out what it'll cost us to park here?" 'Til start il," Betty agreed, "and I'll finish it. But tomorrow night it's your turn!" "Richt!" Martha laughed, and started out lor the manager's cottage. I3«t that laugh was no indication ol her true feelings. Try ris she might, she could not write pit Gerry Weal's disappearance as lightly as Belt}' did. Even when she had pain in advance for her parking space, and obtained Ihc manager's permission to display the trailer for advertising purposes, she returned to the Airspeed with Neal still in her mind. In the falling dusk she found Betty at the door o£ the trailer talking to a ralhcr scrawny man who might have been anywhere between 30 nnd 40. At Martha's nppcifrah'cc ho turned quickly. "Martha, this is Mr. Speddon," Betty said, "lie's the man Mr. Sound Belly ol lite door bi the trailer talk'mg lo a fa\ha ilouchy man toho migirf haac been n»i- between 30 and 'SO.gAt Mmlha's appearance, he turned <i"' c PHILADELPHIA.

(^PEDDON looked at her quccrly. ; don't know about that. But it's mighty queer. You girls may not realize it, but this could be someUiihB kind of serious." "What do you mean?" Speddon hesitated. "Well . . . I can't say exactly. Bid you slop anywhere afler he got into Ihe trailer?" "Just al a gasoline station quite near here," Martha said. "But I'm sure he didn't get out there." "I'd like lo find oul, Miss Brittain. Yoii ECO, Gerry's a friend of. juinc—and I happen to know that there's one or two people who might wanl him to disappear. Could you show me where Ihat gas station is? I'd like lo ask the attendant if he saw anybody get out of the trailer." Betty and Martha c-xchangcd glances, and Speddon added, "ll'll take just a few minutes, and I'll bring ym right back in my car- Suppose you both come along?" "One of us had belter slay wit! Ilia trailer," Martha .said. "D* you think you could show him Betty?" AH curiosity now at the slvang turn of events, Betty gladly as seiited. Martha walked .to th edge of the auto camp to watch | them get into Spcdtlon'S car, a dark blue roadster, and as they drove oiT, some sudden premonition prompted her lo iiole the license number. Hurrying back to the trailer she found a pencil and paper and wrote il down. She was soon to bo grateful for this move. A half hour passed, (hen au hour, and Belly and Speddon hadn't returned. Frantic. Martha unhooked the coupe from Ihc Irailcr and slarted -for the gasoline ttalion. To her relief the same attendant was on duly, and he smiled in recognition. . "Whal'd you do wilh Ihe Pullman car?" he grinned. "Do you remember the girl .who ' . was with me earlier in the' afternoon?" "I sure do. You mean cod-looking blond." Yes TYcs. Martha Britlain, and I'm at the Golden Stale Auto Park." As'she sped past-the.atlcndan/j and into her car she heard ant shook his head.
