It is not that the owing of $9,500,000 offers an insuperable obstacle lo financing the slate, but thc expenses of government have reached such an alarming figure that we shall owe $60,000,000 more in (he two-year period unless plans are formulated for the raising of additional revenue, or the cost of government is correspondingly reduced.

Members introduced 3476 bills and then adjourned without taking a single step in behalf of a financial program looking to the wiping out of the deficit and balancing thc budge L And of such is government in this Or is this a year of 700,000. It is significant that of the more than a quarter of a billion dollars borrowed by (he railroads, $150,000,000 went to redeem bonds and pay the interest thereon, and 38 millions were turned into the banks lo pay obligations there. In other words, money owing to holders of bonds and to banks is now owed lo Uncle Sam, and but little of the money loaned to thc railways went to supply needed employment. Altogether, we are reaching the conclusion that there is a good deal amiss with the plans formulated for thc conduct of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation, particularly when we recall that despite the millions loaned nearly 1500 banks failed during the past year. day in PorlervIHe'. next Proponents of plun.vfor a :local Y.

XV Jim and Sheila stood motionless. Then for tho first time Jim showed that his feellngr for the girl was more than casual interest. His hand closed over hers protectively. She nodded? smiling gratefully. "I tell you," Marlon Randolph was insisting, "either Shayne leaves this show or T do! Why she used every trick in the trade to steal my scenes. You think «he can dance/ do you? Do you call that danclnff? ' All right—T meant what I said!- Either she goes or I go!" Mike broke in then, "Now listen, Miss Randolph, you're excited. Just because a small town critic shows how little he knows you don't want to'let It bother you. Walt until we get to Broadway! What do they know about a real performance here anyway? They—" Miss Randolph was jiot to bo mollified. "The trouble Is," she went on as though Mike had not spoken, "her part Is too good. Now I'll tell you what you can do. Put Shayne out nnd cut tho pnrt for whoever takes It. Then I'll stny!" "We'll talk It over later, Miss Randolph," interrupted the production manager smoothly. "It's Just as Mike said, though. Shayne Is all right but you're so much better! Tou want a .j- company, , don't you? Why, you're the beat Uttle leading lady on the boards right how. Shayne nor anyone else can't t&uch you—'i "You won't find-halt a dozen singers who can reach that top note In 'Happy Days,' either!" Mls»? Randolph stild warofngly. , "We don't need half a dozen." "N6? I mean thero aren't half a dozen—and those thero are, are all signed. You don't need Shayne" in this show and that's flat Or. If you do need her then you don't need me! I don't care whether'.or-not I have this Job. Half a dbzen producers are waiting to sign *ne up and you know It! 1 ' Mike's tone changed. "But listen, Randolph, this Shnyne Is a good kid. She can dunce. She hns the looks. The old man—" "What's that about the old man?" demanded the leading lady viciously. Then without waiting for an answer went on. "That's a good one! That's great! Well, you tell the old man for me," her eyes flashed, "that he can let one of us go. And I don't care which!" • » • r Mike considered. "Maybe he won't either, Miss Randolph. Who knows?" "I know!" The actress' voice broke hysterically and the flood loosened In deep, wrenching sobs. . "Better not let her .get exclttfd," Mike whispered nervously, Ignoring the obvious fact that It had been ho who had caused the outbreak. He stepped toward her and placed a pudgy hand on her heaving shoulder.. "Now see here," he said uncertainly. "You're being foolish to think even for a moment that Shayne can overshadow you. What would the folks on Broadway say If they could hear you?" He laughed—but tho sound was feeble. Over ( Miss Randolph's curly, blondlned hea& his eyes sought those of the production manager's In mute appeal. "Imagine you being jealous of Shayne! That's a hot one! at the leading man we found for you—straight from the four hundred, I suppose you read that In the morning paper? Not many girls can play love scenes with one of those boys every night!" Outside in the wings Sheila's eyes sought-Jim's and flickered In humor- obs sympathy. ** , ' "Can you Imagine that!" Jim whispered, pressing 'her hand encourag- NEWS BEHIND THE NEWS v r of grace, 1933,, grace? RANDOM NOTES All of us are subject to periods of discouragement over the economic situation, and all of us devote some lime to speculation as to when we shall again enjoy better times. But in the midst of the discouragement, and between periods of speculation as to thc future, it happens that every now and then figures are given publicity which ought to create some hopefulness, if they do not. WASHINGTON By PAUL MALLON UTLOOK—President Hoover's personal business chart shows we are about holding our own in the fight against depression.

Final figures Indicate Dew vember. Estimates for January Indicate the December level has been maintained to date. These figures contain no hint of a decisive trend one way or another In the Immediate future. Outside the chart commodity prices have shown some recent decline, U will amount to about one point tn December and two In January. An increase In bank nnd business failures also in suggested. That Is due 1 DON'T GO, BUT HERE'S YOUR HAT F IS a good thing for some of our communistic friends, who find it desirable to wage continuous warfare on the government of thc United States, that they do not live within the Moscow sphere of influence. In a long distance way the Soviet regime appeals to them as one calculated to meet the needs of the common man. ut late developments disclose that the common man is just out of luck in Russia unless he is willing supinely to accept the'policies of the Soviet leaders. In the great agricultural regions there is opposition to the decree of Dictator Stalin in connection with Spring planting. Opposition in this country to government policies calls for no reprisal, but in Russia, the death penalty has been decreed for those who stand in the way of the consummation of the plqns of the Soviet heads. Not only does death face opponents of the governmental regime, but expulsion for lazy and apathetic peasants is the order of the day. Which rule, it is submitted, would be lough on some of our communistic friends here in the United States. A special commission of six has been appointed with all authoritative rights "to conduct lhe campaign against the peasants, and enjoining the severest repression of all hostile forces." Already many thousands of families have been removed from their jialive villages lo other parts of the Soviet Union, nnd the stronger measures now being formulated are designed to "smash thc class ted Press *• -| 'IT *~^ ***^" *« «v«t*feC4JipCU. 1 UtLL 10 UUU UH £Ui V instance, mere is Kern Counlv's guso- to certain *>&& spots in certain locaii- 1 * 1^*110 ••% * ** i tlCS» me bill.

It is an unbelievable figure, and more unbelievable still when we consider m Automobile production is still up. Steel is see-sawing. Oil and electrical power consumption are up.

Aside from the five and a quarter million invested in gasoline, the aggregate bill for distillate, oil, etc., was $600,000 more. Which means, again reduced to a per capita basis, about $7.50 per person, for Kern County, making a, total bill per capita for gas, oil, grease, etc., of about $73.10.

The Harrison hearing's were entrusted to a nub-committee of three — David Reed, Hiram Blngham and Pat Harrison. There are no two more conservative men anywhere than Reed and Biner- hain.

Denials should bo made that inflation Is even remotely In contemplation. Then let tho secretary of treasury control the levers on currency without lotting anyone know more about it than NEW YORK By JAMES McMULLIN R AIbS—The government's Intervention In the Seaboard Air Line receivership Is taken hero as a significant step toward direct government ownership of railroads. The Seaboard's debt to the treasury dates back more than ten years. The government—by exercising ita rights as a creditor—is setting a big precedent with respect to R. F. C. maturities In the next three years. There are no less than 24 railroads in hook to the R. F. C. for more than a million dollars apiece. At lea«t half of them are likely to default unless the R. F. C. continues its generosity— which now seems unlikely. The word has been passed that the government intends to enforce its rights to the limit. t It in an open secret that incoming federal powers are out of sympathy with tho management policies of several important debtor railroads. This menns that some striking shifts In executive personnel are In order. Also government intervention will put a curb on the expensive protective committee racket. The 1. C. C. Is trying to hedge out of a decision on lower passenger fares by passing the buck to the roads themselves. Last year's freight rate decree failed to work nut ns expected and the commission wishes to duck further criticism. This means that the 3Vi cents a mile rate Is apt to stick. The hope that changes lu tho bankruptcy laws will be pushed* through Congress soon Is happy news to the financial district. Tou -will see some snappy reorganization jobs on a two- thirds consent basis. Great Northern —which is not in debt to the R. F. C. —will probably be early in line. Prospects for passage of the bankruptcy law Induced quiet buying of certain rail securities; Some roads will be juicy plums In the hands of skillful reorganizers. TNFLATION—Opponents of inflation X are working on plans for a publicity campaign directed at savings bank depositors and insurance policy holders. The Idea Is to put It strong to these creditor classes that It is their dollars which will be devalued. They hope to arouse enough public sentiment to kill off anything drastic. G OLD—Wall Street bondholders are checking up the gold clauses In their holdings carefully. All federal bonds, about half the outstanding state and municipal Issues, and most of the later Industrial and rail Issues are payable "In dollars at the present standard of weight and fineness." Bonds without this clause will likely suffer a sinking spell before long. There is little evidence of gold hoarding. The United States could easily follow Colombia's example. In that country It Is now a criminal offence to accept payment In gold coins. C ANADA—Important leaders of the Democratic party In New York believe that the policies of the past four years have been such as to alienate Canada. Friends of the President- elect think he will seek to correct this situation, as Canada with proper tariff adjustments might readily become again one of our best customers as It was In the past.

After a year or so they have probably told the same story over and over and the v mind tends to increase and magnify any grievance they may have had. They forget that most doctors are really sincerely trying to help them to the best of their knowledge. Doctors are often so busy taking care of Immediate emergencies that they may neglect to tell the patient what to do in order to prevent a return of their trouble.

One of the reasons that the old fashioned family doctor was BO highly regarded was that he knew his patients over a period of years and became familiar enough with their symptoms and troubles that he could Judge from their past history what was likely to be wrong. ^ Still another reason that some doctors seem to fall to get the best results Is that the patient refuses to have a thorough examination. He feels that If he comes into the office and has the doctor look at his tongue and take his temperature that he has been examined enough and refuses to pay tho necessary money to have a worth while examination which should Include fluoroHcoplc X-rays of the stom- Intestlnes; blood test; Ifcal cur T not a*"™*" "^ ™ a «"«;.?: bfiTod* tirtfS^a, ^iVn,,™ 1 »l£V"^?,.""! examinations; blood pre W un readfm?; teach thc patient the ways to stay . good Job of examining Is going to take two days or more and as the laboratory tests are expensive, it will require some money.

This is twice- a* Hkely to happen if the patient still owes the doctor for services rendered. Another reason that doctors may not do much for the patient Is that a certain type of sick person never stays long enough with one physician but goes from one doctor to another. A better plan Is to find a doctor In whom you havo a reasonable amount of confidence and the^i to atlck with any disorder, A doctor who examines a patient for live minutes must rely more or lefts on guesswork. Do not expect your doctor to tell you what IH wrong with you unless you are willing to give him time enough to find out. Many people are surprised at me for what they call my broadmlnded- ness Avhen I say Unit there Is some prood In all forms of healing, but I make this statement because I have found It Is true. For example, when r believe that surgery js really needed, I recommend that putlent to see u surgeon. If my eye examination Indicates that ho needs glasses I yend him to an optometrist and HO on. Occasionally, I find foot trouble that can best be oorrectedfby a foot specialist I do not condemn any kind of doqtor because according ii t'o my experience he U likely £o be .an earnest, sincere worker who Is tryfng his best to help the-patient.

But Sheila's face was grave-again. There was no doubt about the fact that Marlon Randolph's position In the show was vastly more Important than her own. Miss Randolph was" tho star.'

Her private car and chauffeur.' took her back and forth .from the .hotel. Her own eook prepared her -meals. She had two maids, only one of whom she paid herself. Oh, yes, Marlon Randolph's place In the show was secure. She was a star In her own right and moreover.she had "influence." ' That wan the reason Mike had tried to cajole her into forgetting her grievance. Mike knew that If Miss Randolph persisted she would have her way and Sheila would bo out. "She can't do anythlng/VJlm whispered uncertainly as he and Sheila moved along. The girl smiled ruefully. "She can do enough," "Maybe she won't though." "Maybe. We'll see what happens," * * * And for a time nothing did happen. Reviews of the. show In the evening newspapers praised Miss Randolph extravagantly. There was reason for this because the actress really was skillful. It was also true that an nd- mlrer of Miss Randolph's was the "angel" backing the production financially. Things hadn't gone'any too well with Mandrake recently for all his fame. Like others, he had to secure capital where he could get It. The play returned to Broadway and there acclaim for Miss Randolph was abundant, superlative and gratifying. There was only one unfortunate drawback. Reckoned Inch by Inch Miss Randolph's notices slightly under- spaced those given Sheila. So Sheila left the show. Mandrake said he was sorry. He spread his hands .In dismay as he told her. A little later he might have something for her. And again Sheila was out of a job. "But they can't do such a thing!" Jim Blaine stormed. "It isn't fair and anyhow they need you. You're half the show!*' "I could be three-fourths of It it wouldn't make any difference." smiled gallantly. "Anyhow there other jobs." "And perhaps other Marion Ran- dolphs," Jim said slowly. Then two things happened with startling rapidity. First Dick Stanley returned to New York, dropping upon Sheila's horizon like a bolt from the blue. He telephoned one morning and told her he had taken nn apartment— yes, a penthouse. He was working In earnest now, he said, ife had written a play and wanted Sheila to read it. "I'l like to," she agreed. "Just so you don't read It to me. I'm not a good listener." "How about coming up for tea?" and She ore There Was a, pause and then a hardly perceptible sigh traveled over the wire, "You aren't busy are you?'" -Dick asked. "Come up for tea today." "You're sure it's tea?" Sheila countered. She wasn't sure that she wanted to accept Dick's first invitation so soon. It might be better to keep him waiting, let him call once or twice before he found her free. But, after all, Dick was a friend. She was out of luck and she longed to talk things over with him. "Of course It's tea—or rather It will be. Jasmine tea straight from Chinatown. And if you're worried about the proprieties, we won't be alone. Mandrake's going to drop In." "But Mandrake just put me out of his show, Dick!" • There was a silence. Then In a changed voice Dick said, "That's too bad! Didn't you have a contract?" •"I had one* to look over. It wasn't important people like, myself until the break-In week is finished." Briefly she told him what had happened in Atlantic City, tn New York the show was becoming a big success. Dick seemed sympathetic. "It's a shame, Sheila! Too bad that jealous cat—" "Did you ever, try to scrape up spilled milk?" asked * Sheila steadily, interrupting him. "She may be jealous, Dick, but the fact remains that she Is Important to the show and I wasn't." "Oh, sure!" grunted Dick wisely. "Listen, you come to tea. Try to dress like a sweet Uttle girl graduate and open your eyes wide! Spring that hlt-me-on-the-other-cheek attitude on Mrfndrake. Maybe It will give him a bad conscience." * "I'll do my best," Sheila agreed. As she left the telephone and went upstairs she wondered just what Dick was going to try to do abou t the situation.
