EASTERN REPRESENTATIVES Bryant, Griffith & Brunson, Inc. Xew York, Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta WASHINGTON (D. C.) BURI3AU Vrederlc J. Haskln, Director, Washington, D. C. THIS PAPER IS MADE IN THE U. 8. A. CAPITAL IN FLIGHT I F THERE lias been doubt anywhere in the land as to what would follow governmental policies reflected by gigantic deficits in the federal budget and crushing burdens of taxation for citizens, it is likely to be eliminated by announcement from New York, through the medium of an Associated Press dispatch, that new demand for United States bonds in the regular markets has raised prices to a point where the interest return on the investment is virtually wiped out. According to the dispatches, the recent purchasing of such bonds has increased values well above the prices at which the government may redeem them, the total being estimated at approximately $10,000,000,000. At present values, it is pointed out, the bond purchasers cannot hope for uj higher return than one-eighth of one per cent in some issues, and one-half of one per cent in others. It is axiomatic that capital in this country is timid. And we do not have to guess at the principal reason for this spectacular flight of capital to the safe refuge of United States bonds. Obviously the buyers of bonds, at prices considerably above par in a period of world-wide depression, are not interested in profitable investment for their money. Even in these days of business and industrial inactivity there is opportunity for investors to employ their funds at higher rates of interest than are to be had from government bonds. But it is clear that the present buying movement in the bond market is the direct result of a growing desire on the part of capitalists and others with surplus funds at their command to escape taxation for governmental purposes, and to enjoy the maximum degree of safety represented by federal securities. The one cheerful aspect of such a situation is the supreme confidence it discloses in the fundamental soundness of our political and economic structure. That is particularly comforting at a time when the nation's ability to pull itself out of present difficulties has been questioned in high quarters, and when radical groups openly agitate against the existing order. No apprehension on that score is indicated by men of tremendous financial resources who are now buying United Stales bonds in a bull market without regard for immediate returns on their investments. But other factors of the situation are not so heartening. What it means to American enterprise, expansion of industry, employment of millions of men and women in gainful occupations, income for governmental activities, and wider circulation of money in legitimate channels of trade must afford deep concern to all thoughtful cili/ens. It would be difficult to emphasize more strongly the fact that industry cannot thrive when it is bled white by exorbitant taxation, imposed by governmental inefficiency and extravagance. We cannot hope to lure capital from its hiding places into legitimate business enterprises when it faces the threat of confiscation by governmental authorities. If we persist in the present policy of "soaking the rich" simply because they have money, we have no ground for protest or complaint when capital takes refuge in United States bonds. If we have been convinced that adequate revenues for public purposes can be ohtuinei from higher and higher income taxes greater levies on inheritances, and a genera policy of discouragement to those who occupy a posjluw'of leadership in Americai the Edison Electric Institute. As pointed out by Eastern dispatches, the power industry "dramatically gives the public to understand that it intends to turn over a new leaf." There is assurance froth leaders in the new association that public propaganda, from which foes of the so-called "Power Trust" obtained most of their ammunition, will be no more forever, and that a new policy lias been formulated in which the group "assume an altitude of frankness and ready co-operation in its dealings with the public." What could be finer than that? Moreover, we are told that the institute will maintain high standards of accounting, and insist that the relations between holding companies and operating companies shall be both open and ! such as to promote reasonable charges for the use of electricity. Glowing promises have taken the place of threats, and if the former arc put into effect a new and more brilliant light will begin to shine throughout the land. But patently this is not the lime to give three rousing cheers. We do not have lo question the good faith of the new group, which affords many evidences of sincerity and enlightened self-interest, in order lo be cautious. As has been suggesled, the new tree, like the old, will be judged by its fruits. And the lime for cheering will arrive when electric power users have reaped their harvest in "reasonable" bills for electric cur- renl. Q. How old Is Eddlu Cantor?—J. W. H. A. Mo will be 40 years old on January 31. Q. How many Americans are there n Jamaica?—B, D. A. George !•'. Kelly, vice-consul at Kingston, saya that there are about 00 Americans In Jamaica, throe-fifths if whom are missionaries. Q. How long after President Hard- ng's death was President Coolldge nducted into office?—J. H. T. A. Ho was Mworn into oftico as president four hours and .17 mtnutca after the death of President Harding, Q. Who Invented tho machine for milling stockings?—T. T. A. It was Invented In 1083 by Willam Leo, an Kngllshman, Very little change has bouu jlnco' that time. CANCELED REGISTRATIONS ACCORDING to announcement carried in the news columns of this paper recently, some 6000 citizens of Kern county are disfranchised until such time as they have complied willi Ihe law providing for registration. The county clerk's office has given nolice that failure of many cilizens to exercise their right of franchise at the elections held last August and November automatically canceled their former registrations, and thai others who changed their places of residence, or who have been disqualified by other provisions of the law,' will be ineligible to vote in the event that a county-wide election is held in the near future. In view of the vitally important problems which are pressing for attention ut this time, it should be unnecessary to remind anyone that neglect of civic duty at the polls mav be altended by disastrous results. Those who do not register and thus protect their ballol are deprived of the only means at their command to participate in governmental affairs And when they do not voice their desires al he polls, they are in no position to complain f'such government as they receive is not to heir liking. A full expression of public ientiment is always beneficial to community velfare, but never before has there beei greater need for it than al present. RANDOM NOTES industry, we—need wail no longer for the answer. The present market for Unilec States bon,d# speaks with a voice that canno be misunderslood. The weather? Well, perhaps there is lilll mrpose in discussing anything so obvious as he weather in Bakersfield has been for th< asl few days, bul on second thought prob ibly a good deal more than Murk Twain evci leard about the weather might appropri atcly be said. II will no doubt,be recalled b> iiuny that Ihe observanl Twain once re marked that while everyone talked a grea :leul about the weather, no one ever did any thing about it. Bul he was nol referring to California weather. Not only do we tall about our marvelous climate, regardless of the season, bul when il rains and Ihe reservoirs begin lo fill up, and Ihe mountains are blanketed with snow, we do something about it.

BEGIN HERE TODAV Shell* Bhayne, II, whose parents were well* known vaudeville atteri, Is In Now York leek- ln| for a lob. Shell! It > dancer. In lilt* •f the fact that stio has sient almost her en- tiro lite on the stage her ambition U to marry and have a home like those she has seen In •mail towns In which she has alayed. On a tow hours' notice she Is hired to take) tho slate of Daisy 0 lemon, another danger, who has sprained an ankle. Sholla goes to Joa Paris' office In "Tin Pan Alloy" to rehearse. Thsre she meets Trevor Lane and Dlek Stanley, both rich. Lane asks Sheila to dance al a sarty ho Is living but sho refuses, knowing that after a day of rehearsing and tho performance that night sho will be too tired. NOW 00 ON WITH THE STORY CHAPTER VI The ride to Jackson Heights In the subway was tiresome. Sheila had irnctleed all day, hardly stopping for unch, her muscles becoming more lalr.l'ul as tho hours progressed. She tnew that a dancer already known as a &UCCGSS would never have consented to fill In this way after weeks without practice. Of course there were few dance Instructors llko Brady. This Sheila understood. Brady had been patient and Rhe had Intelligence and talent but no one, not even Brady, could turn out a really finished number In so short a time. Next week some time—Bill had jeen rather vague about it—ftiere would be another lesson. Throe routines for JP was his price nnd Uos- •oo had probably not overpaid him for rushing Sheila through the paces. Her muscles did ache fearfully. ' If she had had tho money to spare Sheila \vould have taken a cab. She did not huvc the money and her little overnight bag, with make-up and book to read during waits, stood at her feet In the subway ear where fare was only a iilckel. "Mnybn 1 should have gone to Mr. Lane's party after all," Sheila thought ruefully. "Seventy-five dollars Is a lot of money. And ho said I could sing—" Buf she had not telephoned the number Dick Stanley had left for her. Neither had he called back to remind her that the opportunity was still open. He might have done that. She had hardly expected it—yet was disappointed because he didn't. Well, $75 is $7u, but a Job Is a job, too. And, for a while at least, Sheila had a job. She had three numbers—tho little eccentric dance for which Bill had trained her so ruthlessly, a lap dance during which his well-shod foot and Tlmmy's head hud nodded brisk ap proval, and p. singing number tho steps for which Bill had said migiit just as well be improvised Daisy's- cos-litmus might be a llttlo short but th<:y would do. Sheila had brought her own hose, her own slippers. No, there was nothing :«he had forgotten. » * * Leaving the subway she took :i trolley car and after making- two transfers arrived at the theater door It was barely 6 o'clock. She bad Unit to eat and nmke up, to say nothing of resting a little. Sho would have llniii also to become acquainted with the oilier members of tho company. Theru would bo Ro.scoe's bund, Lottie Blair and the other specialty numbers Perhaps she knew some of them al ready. Hadn't she heard somewhere that Phil Short was with Roscoo now? He had played tho saxophone with a radio orchestra on a commercial program. Yea, she was certain Phil would be there. Sheila hoped the other dancers would like her and not regard her with that suspicious jealousy so frequently shown other members of their own terpslchorca.il band. The Dancing Doyles were nice, though. ,Sho Roseoc, a rather" fat, harrassed- ooklng young man with a baby face and pleasing smile, met her nt the stage door with a great shout of re- lef. Roscoe. was already dressed for .ho act.' His careful'.tie and beautl- ully cut clothes' bespoke a success- ul season. "So you got hero! That's great," vas his greeting as he wiped a perspiring; face and. tucked his handkerchief Into a pocket before holding out a hand In greeting, "Sure," he went on, "I know Bill jhoned you were coming, but there's many a slip between Bill's say-so and a personal appearance at the theater, t's great to see you." Sholla smiled and passed. along. hnd met City. them on a bill In Atlantic sight, whom sho scarcely knew had greeted her as an by old fijond or—asplndeed she was—a lifesaver. By tomorrow night he would probably call her "sweetheart." That wouldn't mean anything either. Ros- :oe would never attempt to get fresh. His friendliness showed simply that 10 appreciated her quick • work in earning the routine and that he recognized her as a trouper. At tho door of the dressing room Roscoe, who hnd caught up with her, confirmed Bill's rather sketchy Ideas about her salary. "We'll need you for six weeks anyhow," was his conifnrtnble assurance. 'Maybe longer. Depends on how the kid's ankle behaves. Then maybe T can work you In with my other band." "That's great, Roscoe. About tho other band, I mean. I'm sorry about Daisy." Yeah. Tough break." He waved behind him toward a dressing room. 'You're no prlma donna, I hope, Shelln. Have to put you In with the rent of the girls." He regarded her anxiously and Sheila's heart leaped. Then he did regard her as somebody and was apologizing for placing her In an un- starred room! "That's all right, Roscoe. More fun anyhow during the waits." Ho breathed a trifle easier. "Bill said you were a trouper." With this compliment ringing In her ears Sheila pushed the door open and entered the dressing room. It was long, .wide and mirror-lined, a wide board at right angles ran along the walls and formed the dressing tables. Chairs were set at Intervals In front of It, their backs hung with cretonne pockets. Some spaces were empty, others crowded with paraphernalia of the profession—powder puffs, curling Irons, powder cans, rouge and cold cream pots, tins of oosmetlcs, even spools of thread set In orderly rows. Lottie, who was "dressed like a WattPiiu shepherdess gone Zlegfeld." as she expressed It, sat In a rocking chair working at some embroidery and chatting affably with tho feminine member of a kid a'ct who had not, Lottie later confided (rather needlessly), been a kid for almost 30 years. Lottie greeted Sheila languidly and presented Miss Kllcoyne who smirked nnd bobbed her curls In what was meant to be a nursery curtsey. Out In front, Sheila reflected, Miss Kllcoyne might seem to a not-too- crltli-al audience "cute." High falsetto baby voice, curls, large, blue-lidded eyes, vacant stare and sassy swing of her brief starched skirts. Tho act probably was a dud. Most of them were. Miss Kllcoyne, apparently reading Miss Shayne's thoughts, began explaining to Lottie In a querulous voice that she personally thought she was 'too old to play kid parts but Roy liked her In them. She continued to quote Roy's opinion at length. the girl's husband ap- peared, wearing velvet Fatintleroys, to borrow some cold cream. He, too was past the age when ho need 'fear the Gerry Society. Later, however, Sheila was forced to admit that, as kid acts go, this team was not bad. Not good, either, but acceptable In small time houses. The Kllcoynes were go.od scouts and sho was to see them frequently at aupper, • « * Moving about, trying on Daisy's cos-^ tuines which she found hanging against a sheet on the farther wall, Sheila tried not to groan aloud. Her muscles •Were crying out In torture. How could she possibly go on? Of course she could. That was the thing to do. Sooner or later tho soreness would disappear. But as sho moved from the wardrobe to her dressing chair she thought she could not "bear It. Every step and every movement was agony. "Stiff?" asked Miss Kllcoyne, watch- Ing her sympathetically. "Out of practice? Yes, I know. Listen, I've got some liniment. That Is, Hoy has It. •Lie down over thero (Indicating a coh) and I'll give you a rub' before you go on," "Oh, no, I couldn't ask you to," Sheila protested feebly, but Mies Kll- coyne was firm. Sho switched busily out of the room and tho girls could hear her tapping at the other dressing: room door, murmuring Instructions. Sho returned presently with a largo bottle half full of brown liquid. "I'll have you feeling better In no time," she Insisted. Mlss%Kllcoyne was Indeed skillful. The small hands held a strength that was surprising. Sheila relaxed under the gentle yet firm manipulation, her muscles shedding their weariness with every stroke. "That's fine," she sighed softly, relaxing. "I'll do something for you some time. Honestly I will." "1 know what It Is to be lame," Miss Kllcoyne -was saying, working vigorously, her baby skirts swishing Importantly as she moved. "Roy and I used to do an act—" She chattered on busily. Sheila lay relaxed, half asleep, grateful. "How long have we, Lottie?" she asked. "Oh, an hour. Lie still." Thero was a sharp knock at the door. "Is Miss Shayne there? May I speak to her?" A familiar voice. A familiar face, too, grinning, framed In curly brown hair. "Had your dinner, Sheila? Say, I'm glad you're going to. be with us!" It was Phil Short inviting her to dinner. So Phil Short remembered her! TEN YEARS AQO (Tho CallfiM-nlan, this date, 1029) Eight southern California dentists, will bo entertained hero this evening by local doctors of dentistry.

"Wo want beer that tickles our noses," says a Cleveland ex-bartender. Ah, so that's thu source of that old remark about "a tmootful." For instance, we begin to think in terms of rainfall inches and even small fractions of inches. For in California a drop of rain is a drop of rain, whatever the day, week or month. And we pick up the newspaper and scan the weather tables with an interest that leaves us cold to the daily happenings in Congress. Or perhaps we go to the nearest telephone and call the rain reporter, who has just taken the latest readings of his gauge on the roof. What he does about the weather is everybody's business. Q.

And so when it rains we have them. We look at the streets, quickly transformed into running streams of water from curb to curb, and wonder why |the city authorities haven't done something, too. And we make a mental note to remind them about it. We abandon journeys ovtir the mountain passes, or courageously our way through with the aid of snowplows. All in all, we have a lot to do when it rains. And we have a perfectly good time doing it. Moreover, we like the weather just because it means that we are sure to do even more about it with the arrival of Spring. Q. Whore if tin' lurgert cattle ranch n tho United HliiU-H?—W. McK. A.

K. writes: "For ome time I have questioned the deslr- iblllty of frequent enemas and pro- losed to write you in regard to the use if salt water as a means of cleansing ho bowel and find that you stated hat drinking one quart of water, to ivhlch salt has been added, Is an Irrl- nnt. I have It on good authority that ho adding ot two level teaspoons of able salt to one quart of water makes i normal Hull solution, and the osmotic irussiir? of this solution being equal to he oHinotii! pressure of tho blood, the entire solution passes through tho all- nenlary canal, taking no fluid from he body, giving up none. Tho mild salt solution Is on thu other hand, son I Mini; to tho sympathetic nervous jyHtcm, nonhabit forming and abs»- utely nonirrlttitlng. 1 proceeded to iso this normal Halt solution tho first thing every morning and now experience H good bowel movement upon siiiR and Immediately after breakfast; thus the salt water method became.

ANSWEU: Most people will notlca a feeling of Improvement When taking any type of laxative, Including saline cathartics. A normal salt solution, na used by you, Is probably tho mildest of the suit cathartics. There Is, however, an exi'hangu of salts, as the salt solution cannot produce an exact even pressure with the blood because of the complex chemical constituents contained in the salt water regimen,' the diet was also Improved at (he same time. The exact effect of the salt solution Is more or less obstructed and probably receives credit which Is really due to the Improved diet. Tho laxative properties of the sail simply acted as n temporary aid to Intestinal elimination, until tho time when tho Improved diet had good results, QuiltlfDi written by readers of Tin Callfor.

Krassnpff— a picture that Is Illuminating, ono suspects, In ways that the author did not Intend. In this novel are brought together typical representatives of the upper class In the days when Czarlst Russia was dead on Its feet and didn't know It; a couple of young army officers, a learned professor, a band ' of ardent young revolutionists, a superannuated general, a handful of restless Intellectuals, a few ladles of high position. Around them Is woven a slow- paced story which seems to have been designed to show that Russia's intellectuals wero to blame for the worst of her ills. A murder takes place, the learned professor proves Chat It was a Jewish ritual affair, and because these Intellectuals protest against the verdict—on the not unreasonable ground that It Is nonsense and will lead to a pogrom—wa are assured that they are sapping the life of the empire and paving the way for the revolution. Unconsciously, however, tho book gives another Impression. One sees a ruling class hopelessly lost In a maze of out-of-dato traditions, refusing to realize that the world ban muvnd: utterly unable to gel.

The great -Karl was waiting 1 at the foot of the fortress-topped rock: for tho starving Saracens to susren- der, but one day an eagle flying overhead dropped a trout Into the open, fortress cistern. Mlrat, the.comman- der, Immediately retrieved It,' placed It on a golden plate and sent it by a gorgeously appuralled black slavte to Charlemagne with the message that his supply of trout was ample and that they could not starve.
