J5AROLD J. LEGUETT, circulation Manager. sworn to before me this 5th Pubhc. My 1 Missouri's Splendid Children Deserve Splendid Schools. Some years ago Missourians were aroused to the importance of building good roads throughout the state and rallied to a movement to that end under a slogan of "Lift Missouri Out of the Mud." Today they need to rally to another movement aimed at the securing of better schools.

The investigations of the experts engaged by the survey commission appointed by Governor Caulfield resulted in their recommendation that Missouri spend $99,000,000 on its in the next decade, in addition to the present state appropriations for common schools. This is a lot of money, but the fact that it is recommended goes to show the need. Missouri is fourth in wealth among the states, but thousands of its children are handicapped because they live in poverty-stricken school districts. As Dr. George W.

Strayer of Columbia university suggests, the children are not to blame because they live in poor districts, and it is not fair that they should be handicapped as compared with children that live in richer districts. The moral obligation for the citizens of this great state to remedy this situation is clear enough, but people who are not touched on this score should be reached by the financial betterment assured for the future through better school facilities. Education once was a special advantage in this country; today the boy who has a reasonably good education no longer enjoys a special advantage, because most other boys and girls are similarly equipped. And because this is true, the boy or girl not provided with a reasonable education is unfairly handicapped. Missouri, which responded so well to the need for better roads, should now respond similarly to the need for better schools.

We cannot afford to allow other states to provide better for their children than we provide for the splendid children of Missouri. JUST FOLKS BV EDGAR A. GUEST. LOVE'S AWAKENING. Adele Garrison's Absorbing Sequel to Revelations of a Wife BUNKERS IN CALIFORNIA.

"A rose by any other name would smell as sweet," Wise Shakespeare penned that line for men to keep. A bunker to a golfer, I repeat By any other name would be as deep. "Barranca," or "arroya," these are names, All Californian golfers proudly use. "Beware that wide barranca!" one exclaims. "Be very careful now which club you choose.

(Copyright, 1929, Edgar A. Guest. 1 I call them bunkers. They are yawning things To trap the player's misdirected ball, Oceans of grief from which disaster springs And golfer's hopes are lost beyond recall. Well, let the Californians, use what name They will to puzzle Easterners who roam, Who lands In a barranca acts the same As any bunkered maniac at home.

New York Day by Daj By O. O. McINTYRE Magee on the Social Lobby. Talk of a "social" lobby at Washington may not sound important to you but you would have a different conception, if you could hear Carl C. Magee, editor of the Oklahoma City News, tell the story of his fight against organized graft in New Mexico.

As you perhaps recall, Magee was the man who started the fight against Albert B. Fall before Fall had become a member of President Harding's cabinet and was a United States senator for New Mexico. Magee had gone to Albuquerque from Tulsa for his wife's health. He had a lawyer in Tulsa, and before that had been a school superintendent in Carroll, la. In Albuquerque, Magee quickly crossed swords with Senator Fall over certain funds that had been going into the republican campaign fund in that state, but which Magee thought should go into the state treasury.

Fall swore he would break him, and the forces he represented used numerous weapons to that end. His life was threatened but the only notice he took of it was to buy more life insurance. A bank called a $65,000 loan he had made in purchasing his newspaper, but he told the whole story to his readers a month before the note was due and they loaned him the money so he could proceed with his graft-disclosing campaign. Merchants refused to advertise but he again appealed to his readers and they boycotted the boycotting merchants until they were forced back into the paper. At last his enemies adopted the social boycott.

Magee tells of this with a tear in his fighting blue eyes and a sob in his voice. When you recall he went to Albuquerque for his wife's health his peculiarly strong reaction to this assault may be understood. Women telephoned Mrs. Magee and told her they could not invite her to their parties, that they must not even speak to her on the street, but that they would do anything for her in secret that they could. "If you don't think that sort of thing hurts it is only because you have never experienced it," says Magee.

"I believe one of the most powerful and most insidious lobbies at Washington is the so-called social lobby." He may be right. Most congressmen's wives are at least mildly ambitious to get into the social lists at Washington. If they make a fair start and then are suddenly and mysteriously dropped you can imagine they are hurt. It is a viciously potent way to accomplish political ends. Public Whippings and Reckless Drivers.

Having in mind the ancient missionary dictum about "Darkest Africa" we naturally expect absurd things over there. Here is a recent example: A reckless automobile driver in the city of Cape Town was sentenced by a local magistrate to be lashed ten times and imprisoned for four months. Too drastic for a civilized country? Of course. And yet this driver had been convicted of the same offense on twelve previous occasions and there seemed no other way to make him realize he had better reform. There are reckless drivers in the United States who might be helped if public whipping was authorized; drivers who refuse to reform under any other treatment.

New York, Nov. has become suddenly blackmail shy. Philanderers who use to pay right down to the quick when sweeties grew avaricious are now showing up at the district attorney's office and putting their cards on the table. Blackmail is usually paid when the victim is In a panic. Records show nothing calls the bluff of blackmailers so neatly as referring them to direct dealings with a capable lawyer.

The high rewards of the sinister calling have been due to the fact that those annoyed try to deal directly with the tormentors. For the sake of innocent wives and often equally innocent children, the good sport takes a clip on the chin, gets a signed release and resolves to be a better boy. The gouge, however, has been overworked. Men out for a merry evening with loose ladies find themselves in a nice fix. Their wives report receiving mysterious phone calls and perfumed notes are sent to homes until, in desperation, they cough up.

Adroit gold diggers are often able to gather in a half dozen gul- libles, which beats stringing along a lone sucker. And such diversion! Tables were turned during the past year on four greedy sirens who were told coldly to do their worst. The "worst" was a picture of the victims in a day's tabloid sensation but resulting in a backfire of the records of the ladies which did not look so well in print. The biters were they didn't get a sou. Added to this was the boomerang of having methods exposed and putting them under the careful espionage of the police.

-A great criminal lawyer says the only escape from blackmail is to make a clean breast of derelictions to wives. Then immediately seek protection of the police and district attorney, who have bureaus where such threats are treated sub rosa. Records of any payments should be put in their hands. In a ten-year period, New York is said to have paid ten millions in blackmail. Ooch! One of the most expensive cigars on the market is elaborately wrapped in gold leaf and retailing for two berries.

For special banquets the same concern fashions an eighteen-inch cigar that sells for $5 each. A rich theatrical man burns up three of the $5 selections daily. You know, deep thinking! A tobacco dealer with a Park avenue clientele reports he has not more than a dozen discriminating cigar smokers of another sort who, before purchasing, used to pinch, examine the leaf under a strong light and sniff rapturously at the prospective smoke. The cigarette craze is blamed. Yet the same informant declares few cigarette smokere burn up more than a package a day.

He has heard of those who consume 60 and 90 a day, but knew only one with such an appetite. "I was one of his pallbearers," he observed significantly. He further announces that chewing tobacco is almost extinct in high circles. He does not sell a half dozen plugs a year. Kin Hubbard once said there is just as much chewing as ever but fewer white beards and white vests.

Inwood, which is the uptown Pyckman street section glorified in Vina Delmar's "Kept Woman," evidently does not resent the chiffon chimera of the ladies in love with love which the novel created. A chug store heralds the Vina Delmar sundae and a little gown shop is to be called The Vina Delmar. Inwood, it might be added, is chiefly a community of self-respecting people with a neighborly flair, and is not hard boiled.

Hourly torpedoes explode along Grand Central tracks. If something isn't done I have a notion to make a statement to the papers. (Copyright, 1929, McNauglit Syndicate, Inc.) Edith Fairfax Supplies Madge With a Budget of Family Gossip. "'Lo! Madge," came Edith Fairfax's lilting voice over the telephone. "I sure have had the old boy's own session to get you.

I want a few seconds' powwow with the Dickybird, but first, how's Junior? I've been terribly anxious about him." As she spoke I half unconsciously recorded a disquieting impression which her voice made upon me. It was the faint but unmistakable metallic note marring the soft.musical southern drawl which always had been one of her chief attractions. To me it was significant of the change which had taken place in the beautiful Virginia girl's character in the years that I had known her. In the days when she and her gentle younger sister, Leila, had been the lovely, bewildered, incompetent protegees of a group of artists and illustrators headed by Lillian Underwood and Dicky, I had known that she cared as much for Dicky as did her sister, Leila, for Alfred Durkee, Dicky's chum, who later became Leila's husband. But even when in the terrible stress of Dicky's a'ceident at the Mineola flying field, she lost control of herself and threw in my face the challenge that she loved my husband much better than I did.

I had recognized the girl's high-mindedness and sportsmanship. I also had realized that she would keep her secret from Dicky, and try heroically to conquer the love which was wrecking her happiness and that of her distant cousin, Dr. Jim Paige of North Carolina, who had loved her from childhood. 1 But her sudden and. unexpected success in the business and advertising end of an art magazine in which Dicky had sunk a good sum of money, had seemed to me to mark a distinct dividing line between the old incompetent, tremulous, winsome girl with a high sense of honor, and the brisk, assured, competent, highly, attractive woman who appeared to have taken "Myself first," for her life motto.

The hint steel in her voice was carried out in her personality, I told myself, and I no longer placed any reliance in her sportsmanship. I believed that she would use any means in her power to win Dicky's affections and although I -had had ample proof that there was no hint of romantic reaction to her in his heart, yet the knowledge made it difficult for me to keep up the fiction of friendship with her demanded by Dicky's partnership with her, and by my own deep affection for her sister, Leila Durkee. I believed that her inquiry after Junior, however, was prompted by genuine several times had given proof of her affection for the child and the realization helped me to force my voice to cordiality. "Thank you, Ede, he's ever so much better," I said, wondering even as I spoke, how she had learned about the Junior's illness, Dicky, I supposed, but we had been together almost constantly since our boy's accident, and I had not known of his either writing of telephoaing to Edith during that time. "Sure there will be no after effects?" she asked.

"No, the physician appears to think all danger is past." Instinctively I choked back the information that the child' must stay in the country for the winter, but her 'next speech showed me that my caution was neeeHess. "It's a wonder you or the Dickybird wouldn't have let me know about that accident," she said with just the touch, of grievance in her tone which an old family would display. "I only heard of today in the most roundabout way. Noel Vovit.zen told his father about it over the telephone, and the boy happened to meet Alf, and told him, and then Alf, being a good egg if ho is a brother-in-law, telephoned me. You'll probably have a phone from Alf too.

He's quite cut up about it. But he isn't a circumstance to old Phil Alf said he was quite pathetic, though his chief concern appeared to be the possibility that you might decide to stay in the country this winter with Junior." SCRIPTURIS FOR TODAY. Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of 44:18. BEWARE THE COUGH FROM COLDS THAT HANG ON Coughs from colds may lead to serious trouble. You can stop them now with Creomulsion, an emulsified creosote that is pleasant to take.

Creomulsion is a medical discovery with two-fold action; it soothes and heals the inflamed membranes and inhibits germ growth.
