STEARNS We have frequently reflected on the futility of pompous obituaries—of paying people heavy-handed, flowery tributes after they are dead. We prefer flowers for the living. That is why it is not easy to comment, after their death, on the careers of those who loved life well and lived it fully. Posthumus praise always =se«pins a tardy job, one that should have been do'ne before and which in most respects is now too late. The death of Robert L. Stearns Thursday at Tucson, Arizona, where he had gone a year ago in search of irn- 1 proved health, ends the interesting life of one who combined to an unusual degree the talents of businessman and artist, He, believed that art was an enriching force to be shared in the daily life of all persons—a force to be lived deeply and constantly in all its many forms. He detested Ihe traditions that set art apart as something pompous and for museums alone. To him art was an influence standing neither above nor apart from daily life. It was a factor to be used in the fun of living. Admired for his wit and ability to cut through shams of human conduct, Mi-. Stearns was an arch enemy of pretense. He would laugh as readily at himself as anyone else, being a disciple of the school of thought of not taking oneself too seriously. He loved life, contributed his talents generously and saw the world as an amazing kaleidoscope of fascinating, many-sided activity,, a varied scene of spirit and spirituality. His own many-sided life took him to all parts of the United States and many foreign nations but he always seemed to take genuine delight in returning to his home community and to his many friendships here. He left Ludington regretfully a year ago, feeling he might never return. Against the urging of his physician, he delayed his departure, saying he would rather die among the persons and scenes he knew than to live suspended in new surroundings. Yet, characteristically, he was quick to take new interests and new friendships in Arizona. It was not long before his paint brushes were moving again to give vent to the penetrating sense of humor he possessed. To those many persons who knew him he was a personality of many talents and interests—-a saga in himself. His spirit, endures among us in the whimsicaT lore of Ossa- waid Crumb and the many other characters created'by his pen ajid brushes. Industrialist and artist, he successfully combined both in. a spirited life that would sacrifice neither to ; the other. A satirist of broad sympathies, he lived fully with a never-failing sense of humor and human values. The epitaph he would most prefer^ we venture to guess, would stiirbe the last line of the widely-circulated proverb he wrote and illustrated many years ago: "Don't take yourself too damned seriously." It was his philosophy of living. Cool Reception of Cold Vaccines WRITTEN FOR AND RELEASED BY CENTRAL PRESS ASSOCIATION By LOGAN CLENDENING, M. D. ATTEMPTS to prevent colds by immunizing with vaccines are still on trial. Opinions differ as to their . value. One person takes the vaccines, lias no colds the following winter and concludes that the vaccines did the trick. He will possibly be recommending it to you next week. Then, when you are about Dr. Clendening will answer , questions of general interest jv only, and then only through his column. -f- persuaded, another fellow comes along who took the same course of ; vaccines and says he had more colds that .winter than ever before. Colds do funny things and it is hard to draw accurate conclusions |v,front single observations. ll *\t the University of Minnesota, |v,fh$y made some carefully-controlled "' Intents. They took one group udents and gave them, with own consent, a series of cold n* injections. Then they took ier group and gave them injec- ,of sterile water, telling them L^o, prevent colds. None of the At* knew exactly what he was ( ' ••> Got Sterile Water il«nt)y alter that a doctor ite and say, "I have a pan a student at the Uni_ *r and took your cold . aueb splendid result* it» to continue it. Will <0flk flnd that the parson ateriU water, ' who lose a day or two from colds, and would be very glad to have a way to prevent these losses. So they appraise the vaVie of vaccines with a business-like eye. They have vaccinated as many as 20,000 employees in one city^but the results have shown no reduction in the incidence of colds. Don't Know Cause There is little scientific sense in the use of vaccines against colds, be- :ause we do not know what the :ause of the common cold is. It is supposed to be caused by one of the filterable viruses — that group of organisms too small to be seen under a microscope. There was a report two years ago that the virus had been isolated, but that report has not been confirmed. And no vaccine made from the virus has ever been produced. Controlled experiments in the use of vaccines are few and far between. The most extensive one was that carried out at the University of Minnesota, to which I have just referred. One large group was given cold vaccines subcutaneously. Another group of equal size was not treated at all. (This was a differs ent experiment from the one in which on^ group got the sterile water injection.) When the results were tabulated, it was found that the vaccinated ones had a reduction of 25 per cent in the number of colds during the following winter. But colds were seldom completely abolished.

Last night it was calm though sad and worn. What could have happened at this early hour to put him into such a rage? I glanced back at the bed. Josie was still asleep. Silently 1 slipped into my clothes and went quietly down the stairs. The shades were raised in the lounge, the ashes removed from the fireplace and a new fire laid ready for lighting. I knew Chloe's deft hand must be already at work. In the kitchen she greeted me with a smiling "Good morning," though I could see a •orrowful light in the depth of her limpid brown eyed. I had intended going out to Tinker's run, but if I were to attempt to take Mrs. Peake's place for even a few days, I must att and to business. I made a quick decision. It wasn't any use my trying to bluff Chloe into believing I knew anything about running an inn. I didn't and she knew it, or if she didn't know it now, she would the first time I gave an order and—it the wrong one. Perhaps if I took her into my confidence we could work together until Josie was able to take the reins. I knew Chloe was loyal and trustworthy. The way she acted last night proved that. I dropped down on a chair beside the table where she waa working and began: "Chloe, I don't know one thing about running this house, but Miss Josie's asked me to help out and I'm going to do it. If you'll help me, tell me the things I should do and how to do them if I don't know how, it'll mean extra money in your pocket when I'm done." I looked meaningly at her as I spoke. A faint smile crinkled the warm brcwn flesh around her eyes. She stopped her rhythmic beating of batter in the big blue bowl, laid her shapely hands, palm down, on the table, and leaned toward me. An amused note sounded in her rich mellow voice. "Yo' don't have to tell me that. [ knows it without tellin'. How should a city lady like yo' know anythin' 'bout runnin' a place like this? It ain't hard. I could do it. I've run things fo' Miss Peake fo' days at a time when she had to be away.'I could do it now. But it's better if there's a white hand on the rudder. Everybody knows that. I'll tell yo' the things to do today an' tomorrow yo'll know fo' yo'self. As fo' e*tra pay—" She held herself a trifle straighter, a note of dignity came Into her voice. "I'm a pore woman, Miss Gordon. If I wasn't, I'd be home with my children right now. If what I do is worth a little mo' an' you see fit to give it to me, I'll be grateful. But—" Her voice rang with a flute- like note—"yo' don't have to PAY me fo' helpin' out in time o 1 trouble." I reached out and took one of her strong capable hands in a tight clasp. "You're a peach, Chloe," I said. I wasn't one bit ashamed that a husky note came into my voice Chloe's simple self-respecting loyalty .would be a lesson to anyone. "We'll get along fine together. What did Mrs. Peake do at this hour?" Chloe laughed, a low gurgle of pure enjoyment. "The first thin' she did every mornin' was to go out an' get a breath of air. An' I 'spect that's the best thin' for' yo' to do, too." "Then I will, Chloe, and when I come back we'll put our heads together." "After breakfas', Miss Gordon. Mis' Peake always said she could do anythin' if she started her day with a breath of air an' a good breakfas'. It'll be ready when yo' come back." I went out the kitchen door and looked over at Tinker's run. I had been so long with Chloe I expected to find Neal gone. But he was still walking around, closely scrutinizing the ground. "Good morning, Neal." At my voice Tinker came to the wire anc thrust his nose, with a throaty whine, against the meshes. I rubbed his velvety muzzle with gentle fingers. I like Tinker, but right then my attention was more for his master. Neal's reply to my salutation i cordial one and, after an- keen glance around, he came SCOTTVILLE News From Mason County's Second Largest City, Agricultural and Dairying Center MRS.

My brain was in a pinwheel whirL over to me. "Look, Sally." A hard metallic note came into' his voice. "I just picked these up In here." He opened his hand and I saw five pieces of meat. They were dark and discolored by some salve-like substance which was smeared on them. "What is the matter with them, Neal? Didn't he like his food last night?" "His food!" Neal gave a hard, bitter laugh. "This isn't his food. Somebody tried to poison him." Poison again! My brain was in a pinwheel whirl. "D-don't you think you ought to tell Captain Lancy?" I stammered. "I'm going to do so," Neal answered emphatically. "Here he comes now." He raised his voice a morning, Captain you come here, trifle. "Good Lancy. Will please ? " Lancy, who looked as fresh as though he had slept through long peaceful hours, came smilingly toward us. But his smile quickly faded when Neal showed him the meat and told him where he had found it. "I don't like it," he said softly, as If to himself. "I don't 'ike it." He walked around the outside of the run, closely scanning the ground, as Neal had done on the Inside. Neal and I watched him. One place seemed of particular interest. He walked here and there, but invariably came back to that one spot. "Come here," he said at last. "Don't come any closer," he cautioned as we approached. "Do you see those footprints? A woman's, undoubtedly. Would they fit your shoes, Miss Gordon?" Without a word I unlaced one of the tan oxfords I was wearing, slipped it of and handed it to the detective. "This shoe is much larger," he said after comparison. "Would you be clever enough to borrow another woman's shoes if you intended to throw poison into this run, Miss Gordon?" I considered the question from every angle. I knew Lancy had a reason for asking it, and I was willing to give my best thought to the answer. My eyes, which had followed Lancy as he wandered here and there, had noted one thing. The thick velvety grass of the rear lawn came close up to the base of the run. As far as I could see, there was just -sine place where a footprint would show. It was too much to believe that the would-be poi- soner had accidentally stepped on the one place suitable for preserv-* ing her prints. "I don't think so," I said. "The grass is too thick except in thai one spot to show footprints. No, I don't think I would borrow any- day evening at the Star theater.

'But if you did borrow shoes, from whom would you obtain j them?" he insisted. j "Pauline Rutherford's and Coral | Saston's are too small for me. I •enow that by just looking," I re- | plied. "I think Josie's are larger :han mine, and I know Rhoda's are. don't know about Mrs. Rutherford's and Mrs. Peake's." Hu-um! Then, if you are correct, we may suppose that this print was made by MLss Easton or Vtiss Rutherford," he mused. Coral had on high heels last night," Neal volunteered. "I noticed them because all the rest of you girls had on flat heels with your slacks." "She would be different," I muttered under my breath. Lancy gave-j me a sharp glance. Is that correct?" he barked. It's correct enough," I flung back as curtly as he had spoken. "But jus', how long do you think it takes to change a pair tf shoes?" I caught an approving twinkle in the glance Lancy shot at me. I think he doesn't like Coral Easton any better than I do. What in the world is all the fuss about?" demanded a peevish voice. We swung on our heels. Coral, In smart linen dress, stood looking at us. Involuntarily, we all glanced down at her shoes. The daintiest of white gabardine sandals were on her feet. But three-inch high heels were never made to wear on Cape Cod in the morning. I had noticed before that something In Coral's costumes always strikes a wrong note. While I was busy -with my thoughts I heard Neal telling her, briefly, of the poisoned meat he found, but if he expected any sympathy from her he failed to receive it. She shrugged her shoulders. "It's too bad he didn't eat It," she callously said. "Coral!" Indignation, hurt and ing by Mrs. Orve Pittard, president of the association, will make the coffee and prepare the hot dogs. The Band Mothers hope to'sell hot dogs and pies, while the coffee will be free. The committee from the PT-A will not have to furnish anything but are asked to help with the work. So much interest is being shown by mothers both in the city and those from rural districts, that it is expected a year- round band will soon be as- surred. of 15 lessons, one lesson each week, the lessons taking about two hours each. The course will include a variety of subjects to meet the demands of those enrolling. The classes will be under the direction of J. C.
