Iho Ioc:nl AN RXTREMK VIEW foreign countries, even in spite, of high tariff schedules designed to "protect" home outlets for American-made goods, wide advocacy of consumer preference for the latter has greatly encouraged a "Buy American" movement in the United States. At the same time opposition has come from certain economists and business interests, and their arguments nre intended to prove that no such plan can be. carried to its logical conclusion without injury to American interests as a whole. But they argue from the extremist point of view, while frankly admitting that Ihc movement is commendable in many of its fundamental factors. No sponsor of the "trade at home" idea who has given the proposal even superficial thought contends that it should be carried to extreme length. Even in theory, the absurdity of that can be convincingly demonstrated, and in practice it would be disastrous to everybody. What the objectors to the plan actually hove done is to set up n straw man and knock it down, but that argumentative maneuver long ago passed into the realms of useless and forgotten things. Any plan to preserve, the domestic market for.tjje producer and the worker in this country has its limitations. Even prohibitive tariffs, which have been the shibboleth of reactionary political leaders over a long period of years, have failed to save the American industrialist from a deluge of foreign-made commodities produce*) by human labor at starvation wages. Depreciated foreign currencies have played an important part in this assault upon the American home markets, and until that situation can he remedied some new methods of affording protection to American workers and industries must be York stale, and their success encourages the hope Ihtil similar enterprise and industry may be equally effective in many other parts of the country.

C. NOT A TOTAL LOSS DTW1THSTAND1NG that the present Congress, heavily impeded by "lame duck" material, has accomplished nothing of real value in the way of legislation, and with the further prospect that nothing better is to be expected of it before final adjournment, tho session probably ought not lo be |charged off as a total loss lo the taxpayers. No more impressive illustration of the folly represented by an outworn system which prevents a newly elected administration from assuming power and authority within a reasonable period afler the election, has ever becn'provided for the education of the American people. Never before in the history of the country have Hie people been faced with so many critical problems of gov- crnincnt needing immediate attention and intelligent adjustment. Yet months have passed nincc the last election, and many more weeks must elapse before those who will have full responsibility for whatever may happen in the future, can legally discharge that obligation to the citizens. If there has been lingering doubt in the mind of any observer ns to the necessity for a drastic change in the present system it should be removed by the current demonstration of futility and frustration at Washington. So we may credit this "lame thick" session, probably the last in our national history, with affording inspiration to every state in the Union for ratification of the Norris amendment to the Constitution as speed- Q.

The people of foreign countries arc already fully conscious of that fnct und they are using it to the utmost advantage to themselves. They are not obsessed with the idea that international trade should be entirely abandoned, or that they can live completely within themselves. But they believe in, and practice, the theory that preference should be given by consumers to goods pro. duced in their own countries insofar as that is possible. And such preference is far more practical in America today than in any other nation in the world. and thoso who reloaded from sense of beauty, even though some of them are obviously not intended for serious consideration. But since it is anybody's "guess," we wonder why no one has submitted the word "job." To many millions of Americans, "job" ought to be a particularly beautiful word right now. A columnist in the esteemed Los Angeles Times, whose lance is unusually sharp, 1ms j a superb contempt for "politicians." That may or muy not be explained by his own admission that he wus "twice u Washington correspondent," und he learned about politicians from members of Congress. What he thinks about the "average Congressman" —but there's no use in repeating, because he presents a generalization that is too unfair. you mean! But we enn't both By tho faint hardening of h,er features the other showed that the abhorred name had been heard. "All right. I'm dummy. Mr. Do- Vos Is playing my hand." To Linda's teen ear an unconsciously possessive note hud slipped Into tl'« studiedly Indifferent voice. Before she could anmvor Fleur went on with tho same negligent air, only a little sharpened to wariness as she watched her hostess In th$ mirror. "By thn way, Linda, T only wish t :md Itnown you were having—these people "down." "But you did, child. You were hers to dinner Thursday and I Jnvlted you some time ahead." "Oh, yes—T mean—" It TTOS en.iy enough to see what she meant but she sought words to express Indirectly ler annoyance that Linda had given no Intimation of tho unusual attractiveness of one guest In particular. "I'm sorry T had not happened to meet Mr. DeVoS before. I'm tnklng a crowd out tomorrow to tho White Horse Inn—" "Someone backed out?" T.lnda was all practical Interest. Vleur'B airs always tempted her to bo Irrltatlngly literal. "Why—yes. I was wondering—T understand your guests had to stay overnight but expect to go tomorrow. The trouble Is, our house Is full. Mostly mother's and father's friends. Such a bore to have that sort for tho Fourth of July week-end! I do need another man, Linda dnrllng—" • o • It was a habit of Fleur's Tvhen she wanted anything but did not want to bo put. In the position of asking for It to trail off In an indeterminate sentence, and to wait for the other person to make tho actual suggestion. Linda had learned Just how long she could leave tho unfinished sentence suspended In the air between them, thus filling Vleur with vague alarm lest she might have to further her own scheme openly, or worse yet, see It Ignored entirely. This time Linda did not Indulge In her favorite hedevll- ment. Flour's calculating little maneuver too aptly fitted In with her own cherished plan. "That Is a shame!

And I am so tired, Tom!" "Tell you what I'll do," he began judicially, and slopped an u cool, nmused voice broke in. "What on earth are you two talking ubout so seriously? Hello, "Linda — haven't seen you before. Got a cigarette, Tom?" • * * The beautiful Fleur, tOim mid willowy, her hair exquisitely coiffed. her curiously narrow eyes enhanced by soft blue shadows, her eyebrow.-; delicately archrd. her rather thin lips rouged Into more gracious lines, drifted out Into the central hall.

Because I'm—out of things" (she had an Impulse to add politely "Perhaps you heard of the death of my cousin?" but restrained it) "doesn't mean Mr. DeVos cnn't simply stuy at the house And do as he plenses on his own." The Flight cloud on Flour's unllned forehead cleared Instantly away. Her deMres usually arranged themselves thus expedltlously. "Thai's too nice of you. Linda! Sure It won't be any trouble? They must be wiiltlng for me." she went on hastily, perhaps fearing lest her question be taken literally. "I must go back. He plu>s a marvelous game of contract, Linda. Too bad you cnn't take n bund for a while. Mr. Pratt plays very well, too," she added magnanimously. Mill By DR.

Deliberately ho walked along beside the .two returning players and Linda saw that he meant the conversation to continue Into the. drawing room where Marvin could be neatly Included In It. He could masago this better than she, In her present frame of mind, so she dropped behind them and made a pretense of arranging the magazines on the central table. Khe heard several voices, Marvin's deep booming heartiness among them. Then the bidding started with renewed zest, and In a moment her husband rejoined her. "Pratt fell for It." he whispered. "That worked marvelously! Evidently tennis Is his ment. Now listen. Bt»ks. Ton speak to them a moment, and then I'll go upstairs with you and we can talk for a little while. Then when I come down you must lock tho door behind me. If yoti're frightened for any reason—or no reason—yell like blnzes and keep on yelling. But I'm sure you won't bo.

The great cause of pneumonia Is lowered resistance. Right now you probably have the gcrm.s which produce the disorder In your mouth or -throat but you will escape the disease as long us your resistance remains high. Those, developing pneumonia must fi'cst be enervated by overfatlguo, lack of sleep, overwork or mental strain. Or they muy become weakened from several colds. Often tho resistance Is worn down because they 1 keep themselves toxic by eating too much. Two types of tho disease must bo considered.
