But even if the former be true, social and governmental leadership faces a responsibil- b ity which cannot be shirked without widespread consequences. Attention has been directed to possibilities of concentrating large numbers of these wanderers in summer training camps directed and supported by the government. Congressman Barbour of California has proposed that $2,000,000 be included in the Army appropriation bill for this purpose, and he says: "I think that this $2,000,000 will be very well invested. It has been suggested that we gather these thousands of youths now floating about the Country in to) boon- made to'TnanufaVturo^blown- these camps, and give them something to ft and I think this is a good chance to try it out." • i Of course there arc serious objections by those who want to see military training of American youths limited.

President-elect is now in complete agreement with Mr. Hoove? and that policies of the past will be the policies of the future! Nothing could be further from the truth. We have only to note authoritative'.'dispatches from Washington in connection L with Mr. Roosevelt's recent conference with the President to establish a wide difference of views and policies as to what will be done in the future. At one point, we are told,,the cleavage threatened to cause complete failure of the meeting but that Mr. Roosevelt's position was maintained throughout. It is disclosed that the latter took this pbsi- . * * • » tion "early in the indirect conversations with & m • Mr. Hoover through Secretary Stimson," r * and so firmly did he adhere to* it that the "renewed negotiations between the President and the President-elect were on the verge of collapse last Sunday night." Then we are told: "Up to the eve of the conference, President Hoover fought for his idea, which was to have an American delegation go abroad to negotiate with Europe on world economic problems generally, rather than have debtor delegations make pilgrimages to Washington. Mr. Roosevelt explains that he took the opposite view primarily to emphasize the idea of making Europe come to America, and thereby avoid the implication of America initiating the debt review. Mr. Roosevelt had emphasized that he would enter into an arrangement with the present administration only on condition that the British were to come to us. That no amount of pressure could budge the President-elect from this position became apparent on Sunday night." Under the plan evolved at the conference, Mr. Roosevelt contends that he is committed to nothing but a willingness to "discuss the debts," and at the same time to discuss "'ways and means for improving the world itualion."

CHAPTER IX Sheila heard that ripple' of laughter. She did not turn and so she did not learn the speaker's Identity. But the words brought a chill about her heart, "Dick's girls are always pretty," the unknown woman had said. Of course.such a youngr man j as Dick Stanley .must know many glrlB. He must be in constant'demand at parties and dinners where there wore beautifully gowned, beautifully groomed young women. And say what you would, clothes did make a difference! Look at what they cofcld do for a newly discovered movie star. They had changed Norma Seabury in -one short year from a pretty, ordinary little Brooklyn girl to a trnuvG, sophisticated beauty who knew how to walk and talk, to riso from a chair and sit down. These girls who were Trevor Lane's gtieHts were not like Norma. Their glamour was more natural, less affected. They hud been born to this life of luxury. to Sheila looked about her at the blonde, 'black and titlan heads, the gleaming white shoulders accented against tho. trim black coats of the mtiii. • Some were dancing, some chatting. Laughter broke forth and trickled across the room In gentle, well- modulated ripples. fPhen tho brilliant rustle of voices was suddenly hushed. "There's a clever little girl for you," Dick was saying, clapping as ho did so. Following his eyes toward a Japanese screen which half concealed a door Into another room, Sheila waited expectantly. She had not heard the announcement which had prompted Dick's words. Another little dart of jealousy shot through her. Here obviously was an entertainer of whom Dlc i k approved. . * A hush fell and the girl stood before them. She was slender, not very tall, dressed in flesh-colored tights and a jeweled bodice. A silken fringe circled her waist. Her dark eyes sparkled In the delicate, piquant little face beneath a lovely pink silk wig. She looked almost like a small boudoir doll. Tt was Frances Barton, the .eccentric dancer. Frances was the best In her line— the originator of a dozen routines BO difficult thnt only a few of her Imitators could follow them. She had been in half a dozen Broadway shows and was In one now. Like Sheila she had come to the party following the performance. ho-had turned toward Sheila herself. Hotly she. told herself, that, to Dick Stanley she was just another gtrl. How could she have bee^n ; so foolish a& to beltuve that h£ was Interested In her? tfust because he had taken the trouble to call for her at the theater? "She's great, Isn't she?" Dick was saying-, unconscious of the tumult he had caused In /Sheila's heart. "You must meet. her. I know you will like her." ' "Do you know her • well?" Sheila asked. . "Know her? t should say I do. u.t's move forward.* You don't want to miss this biti" 1 know her too," Sheila said, .try- in to keep her voice steady. "And she Is good, isn't she? There's no ono else on the stage Vho can touch her. Frances is ln v a class by herself." . . Dick oyed Sheila almost tenderly. "That's generous, 0 ho said, "from another dancer. Darned , generous. But of course" — hastily — "you aren't tho same kind of dancers. You are about the best I've seen in your line, you know," Sheila laughed a 1 little dubiously. "That's generoun too. Thank you. But I can't compare' with Frances. That routine would slay me in ' a week. It just can't be done by anyone else." She had always admired Frances Barton and even in -this moment hoped that she had not minimized 'the effect the other girl's talent always had on her. It was cheap— this Jealousy — oven though no one knew of it but herself. Why should .she bo Jealous of the Interest of ii young: man she had known less thnn 14 hours? Was it really only 14 hours ago that-she had first seen Dick Stanley? All day long she had thought of him, not as "that agreeable Mr. Stanley" or as "Mr. Stanley" at all, but as Dick. Trevor Lane )uul thus addressed him and Sheila, had thought at the time that it was an approprlato name. She was standing close beside him now. Tall, charming, with that de- llfihtful smile crinkling his nose, Dick was just a name. How well did Frances know Dick? Sheila paw Dick Stanley's eyes light anil his smile flash. His gaze was as ardent, as eager nn It had been when A clamor of applause went up 'tis the girl began one of the moat Intricate parts of the dance. She was delightfully graceful, Frances swayed like a lily on Its stem, bent almost unbelievably and yet attractively," too. She turned amazing somersaults, righting her slender body with agile grace. Presently, amidst clapping of hands, she finished the dance, bowing graciously, bounding toward the audience on tiptoe and back again. Frances blew a kiss, light as thistledown, pranced on her toes and fluttered out of sight, It was indeed a pretty picture. One moment she was there, posing, smiling. Then she was pone. Instantly everyone was talking. Groups broke up and others reassembled. Kato appeared bearing a heavily Inden tray. Trevor Lane separated himself from a girl who was hanging on his arm, urged her gently into a seat beside an all-too-wllllng and engaging youth, and hastened toward Sheila and Dick. "Dick promised mo that ho would try to make you change your mind," he explained to the girl, with a^mile. "So I took the liberty of assuming that you would do us the honor to sing." Ho looked across the room aa ho spoke and liodded. "Joe Parlp-'told me that you sing certain types; of songs exceptionally .well.'* , .• • , . * * * • ^ . j Sheila's heart leaped again'-lit the mention of Joe Paris' name. How did he know that she sung? That Joe Fnrls should remember her, know nny- tlilng at all about her work meant so much "I asked Mr> Davis to como along," thought you would feel more at home."

Ho directed a servant to shpw Miss Shayno the dressing room from which she could emerge near the piano and save an embarrassing .walk through the glittering rooms. Smiling Sheila turned from Dick. To bo sure this was/what she had come for. She was an entertainer. Tt was truo that Dick had called for her at the theater but very likely ho was as glad now of tho opportunity to escape her. If after she sang he did not Join her— But Dick was still at her side when she reached the dressing room door. "You aren't nervous?" he-asked. "Nervous?" Sheila's low laughter rang out. She was exultant again. "Oh, but you forget that T was practically born on the stage, t'm more nervous talking to you than sing-ing to a crowd." "Then you're In for a lot of nervousness tonight," Dick laughed. "I'm going to talk to you a lot. That's a threat!" Two girls on a nearby divan spied Dick then and hailed him. Bowing to Sheila, he was gone. (Continued Tomorrow), It Is predicted that 3913 will be ono of the greatest years In the history of Randsburg'a mining production. Mrs. \V. F.

RANDOM NOTES HAT some N incasures should be created for dealing with conditions which obviously constitute a menace to society, in the ^r &^ f increasing numbers of young men and boys roaming aimlessly over the country, will hardly be disputed by thoughtful citizens. Sociologists and welfare workers are deeply ncerncd with this factor of the economic and industrial depression, pointing out that if it is permitted to continue indefinitely a deplorable harvest must eventually be reaped in juvenile crime, physical degeneration and greatly augmented numbers of public charges at government institutions. There is no lack of purpose to remedy the ^conditions but the problems presented are by ; no means easy of solution. When we come ; !to the consideration of remedies the situa- > - 1 tion is found complex and baffling.

If there 1s rfhy possibility of eyestraln he should have the eyea examined. If the bowels do not move freely, tho enema should bo continued. As long as the patient will adhere to good rules of living, Including a calm mental attitude, there is not the slightest reason for any recurrence of headache and he should remain completely cured.

The volume'of business for the year ended June 30 was approximately $1,925,000,000, thai amount reflecting considerably smaller returns to farmers because of declines in prices. California led in volume, while Minnesota's co-operatives were in the lead with the number of organizations and aggregate memberships.
