PLANS THAT HEARTEN *• W E DO not have to endorse every proposal made by President-elect Roosevelt for the rehabilitation of the country to feel heartened over the prospect of the dawning of a brighter day in the future. We do not have to endorse them all in order to share in that sentiment, because the mere fact that there is evidence of independent thinking and virile leadership is reason in itself for hope of a return of faith and confidence in our country and in its institutions. It must be plain to the average newspaper reader thai the administration, during the next four years, will not simply drift with the tide. There is to be planning, and there is to be exercised the executive authority to make that planning effective. So it is not so consequential to find ourselves in agreement with every policy enunciated by the newly elected chief executive. Doubtless there will be mistakes, and doubtless, loo, there will be modification of plans already announced. But it is evident that the essential factors necessary for a restoration of prosperity are recognized and that the new President will be active and alert in pressing upon Congress and the nation plans designed to overcome the ills that are. It has long been plain that the policies of the past have not been helpful to the country as a whole; it was contended that relief given to the man higher up would leaven the whole loaf, and so such relief was voted in unstinted measure. But it has been amply demonstrated that the value placed upon it by present day leadership was exaggerated in its every phase, that the few only were the beneficiaries and that the many were helped not at all. We do not have to go further Uian the banking business to supply incontrovertible proof of that, and the "new deal" which we are promised will, the country has faith, be based upon a different theory, upon the conception that we must begin at the bottom and not at the top if plans for rehabilitation are to inure to the advantage of the country. And so we say again that the evidence that is being daily presented that the country is to enjoy active, intelligent leadership is heartening, and belief is stimulated that the mere fact that such leadership has developed will very materially contribute to that betterment which has been so long promised and so long delayed. A LESSON IN THIS S ANDING, the long time rebel of Nicaragua, is a rebel no longer. The last American marine was no sooner recalled from the country than the leader of the revolutionists made his peace with the existing government of the southern republic, and following a visit to the President, peace plans were agreed upon and the rebel forces throughout the republic have been so notified. All of which emphasizes what has long been in the minds of the average American, that we were neither benefiting the masses of the people in Nicaragua nor ourselves by our occupancy of that distant country. Whenever the people there have had opportunity of passing upon our interference, they have disclosed their hostility to it, and it is patent from the prompt action of the revolutionists in now laying down their arms, that it was our own interference that was largely responsible for the continued factional difference which was made the excuse of our meddling with the business of a foreign state. "Let us hope the American government will not fail to heed the lesson which is taught by the restoration of peace in Nicaragua. We may not agree with the manner of government in another state, and we may not be in sympathy with those who defy constituted authority there, but that does not justify a policy of seeking to act as policeman for the weaker governments of Hie .-western continent. In emphasis of that, the statement made by Sandino, following his peace conference with the authorities will not fail to be of interest. He saidi "Why discuss the basis of peace? It is our duty as Nicaraguans to establish it as we arc all brothers. I have nothing against North Americans personally; let them come und work here. How- ever, for them to come as our bosses we should not accept. 1 send my regards to the American people." 1 r -rtai r THE OTHER SIDE W E READ with some interest of plans being formed at Washington designed to i-ead out of the heretofore dominant party those independents who have declined to take program and who have made themselves obnoxious to the party powers. In view ,of what happened in the last election, it would occur to even a casual thinker that party leadership should realize how very little interest the masses of voters have in 'regularity." Partisanship has very largely disappeared in the land, if we can form an opinion based upon the Presidential election. People are not interested in loyalty to party insofar as their congressmen are concerned. What they do want is legislation in the interest of the pdople and of all the people, and critical leadership is rather likely to make little headway in seeking to discipline men like Senators Johnson, La Follette and Norris. As between such leadership and the senators who may be read out, the latter would secure a preponderating vote if their respective claims to preferment could be submitted to the electorate. It was Senator Johnson who said shortly after the election that the progressives might even read the stalwarts out of the party, and judging by the popular temper, that would be far easier to make effective than the proposed plan of disciplining so-called progressives. DIRECTS THE WAY IOWA and Nebraska we learn .that •*• farmers are gathering "ready to take whatever action is necessary to protect their property from the auctioneer's hammer." And we learn too that relief measures are "viewed with sympathy by legislative bodies, state and national," but that no concrete action is being taken looking to affording the agriculturists any assistance. The same dispatch says: "Congress is working feverishly to reach an agreement on some sort of relief measure before adjournment. As the session wanes, the batik- ing committee of the Senate is discouraged at the possibility of reaching agreement on any of the measures before it," The situation may well awaken wide interest in every political unit in the country among those who have to do with the expenditure of public funds. It is obvious, if property owners do not pay their taxes, there will be no funds available for governmental purposes. In which event, we shall no longer be disputing about how we shall cut the cost of government, but rather we will be facing the problem of how to maintain any government at all. It is a chaotic condition which threatens and it calls for sane action on the part of those in authority as well as the co-operution of the people generally. RANDOM NOTES TEN YEARS AGO (Th» Ciillfornlaii, thli date, 1058) Ward organizations to nominate suitable candidates for city council were formed last night at a meeting here. Because of the recent death of her mother, Miss Ethelynne Smith 1ms resigned her position here In the high school as head of the dramatic department. Steel framework for the Masonlo temple at Taft Is being put Into place, place. John Cole Dooley, according to a Fresno report, has admitted wrecking the Santa Fe train near here on De- comber 2.

Abbott oendi Sheila a hufo bmkot of red • eranivme. Ho takes her to tea that afternoon and effort her ths lart Marlon had. Sheila tayt the does not want It. Then Abbott ackt her to marry him. NOW 00 ON WITH THE STORY CHAPTER XXII Sheila could almost hear her .heart beating against her breast. • "You'ro asking me to marry you aifd go-back home?" she asked slowly. Craig Abbott smiled. "Home for me," he said, "Is wherever I hang my lint. I love Broadway. I've played up and down this street and played In luck,' too. Every show I've been Interested In so far has made money. "Did you know 'Lucky Lady' was mine? It was, and It ran for 40 weeks. Now there are two companies playing It on the road. Your play, 'Heigh-ho' has been a big- success. With you In tho cast It will bo even bigger." Ho 'took Sheila's hand. "I'm sick of the life I've been leading, though. I'm sick of late parties, hangovers, dinners and dancing. I want a home. Every man does, I think, In his heart. Every woman, too. I want u home, Sheila, and I want you." Still she did not answer. . "You can have any part In any show you want!" he urged. "Your name shining In electric lights! You can name your own company—be tho toast of Broadway!" "You m5an that you'd be willing for your wife to keep on in the theater?" Sheila asked. She was Incredulous for a moment and then she understood. This man was in love with what he believed would be her fame. Tie was the sort to sit In a theater box nnd beam when his sweetheart appeared From the wings, admired and desired by all—but her charms reserved for him alone. ' He wasn't in love with Sheila at all, hut with the fame she might win. After that fame had dimmed and the glamour had passed his Interest in her would fade as well. She .would be like every other glr\ then.' "I'll make you tho talk of New York," Abbott was promising. "I'll make you a figure In theaterlcal history," "Another Duse?" "A second Pavlowa! I'll make your name go down Iti history and " "And up In electric lights." "Please, Sheila! I mean It so 1" "I'm thinking," she fold him. Her cheeks were flaming and her eyes burned like dark coals. Craig Abbott loved her no more than he loved tho theater. Probably not so much. If she should accept his offer It would mean only that Marlon Randolph had been supplanted by Sheila Slmyne. There would bo a wedding ring, of course. That would be tho only difference. The girl lifted her head suddenly. "Craig," Hhe .said, "when I marry I don't want It to be that way. I want to marry someoiwt who loves me—not my stage career. I—I guess It wouldn't work out very well for either of us." Abbott looked at her curiously. Fifteen minutes later she was saying goodby and hurrying toward the theater. * * * '• It was tho next afternoon that Myrt asked Sheila with careful casualness, "How's the geranium boy friend?" Sheila shrugged. "I don't know," she said. "I don't expect to see him soon." The following evening the "Heigh- ho" company set out on Us road tour. Dick Stanley accompanied Sheila to the train. As they were crossing Times Square In a taxi cab he said to her, "You know how I feel about you, don't you/Shella?" "Yes, I know.," "And do you still feel the same way about this road tour? About living in the country and marrying one of the leading citizens?" "You know I do, Dick." She slid one hand Into his confidingly. "They say show business gels Into your blood." Her eyes took in the glittering electric signs they were passing, the stands where fruit drinks were sold, the shop windows, the knots of NEWS BEHIND THE NEWS It seems rather definite that the proposal to recall Governor Rolph lias gone into the scrap heap, and that is gratifying in itself. We have a good many big problems to solve here in California, and it is desirable not only that they have the attention of those in authority, but the attention of the people as well. And that being true, it is no time to divert the public mind by the inauguration of a recall election. What would please the people of the stale would be to see the Chief Executive and the Legislature devoting themselves to the consideration of a number of vital issues, and perhaps, despite (he bad start since January 1, it will be possible to harmonize existing differences sufficiently to enable those who are entrusted with power lo devote themselves to the business for which they were elected. * * * 'Significant of Ihc nation-wide kindness and sympathy awakened by the widespread economic condition is the activity whereby the Lions' Club of Ibis city has provided nearly 10,000 quarts of milk for needy families since a year ago when the organi/a- tion announced its inauguration of a policy designed to be helpful to those who are in distress. The plans were financed by Ihe club, and the policy has resulted in needful aid to many families in the city. Recognizing that the need still persists, the work of the organization is to go on through the ensiling year, and already plans are laid for a rodeo to be held May 25 and 21 to secure additional funds. As on a former occasion, recognizing Ihe good work this organization is. doing, doubtless there will be a generous participation on the part of the public. WASHINGTON By PAUL MALLON JAPAN—Our officials are getting ".shaky about Great Britain in the Japanese situation. Confidential government reports from Geneva Indicate Sir John Simon Is playing a strong Japanese game. The British foreign minister apparently longs for th« old days of tho Anglo-Japanese alliance. He does not want the Leugrue of Nations to do anything- to cause Japanese withdrawal. That means you cannot expect much from the League. The Invisible telegraph reports the British cabinet is split on the subject. Premier MacDonald Is a great negotiator and a charming personality but ho has a remarkably vague mind. He seems to be exercising It 'now In the Japanese situation. Our officials do not expect the British to walk out on our nonrecognltlon policy. The velvet glove may prove to cover an iron hand. But they would not be a bit surprised if the change came. • • • •'C*' V. R.—Those who have observed - 1 the Roosevelt technique from close up front the lant few months call it "Smllin 1 Through." The President- elect, knowingly or not, appears to be following the theory that smiles breed smiles and frowns beget woes. There is something in that. Mr. Roosevelt has kissed his middle- aged secretary for the rotogravures; eaten hot dogs for the movies; ridden airplanes and even Fords. Always there has been a broad; infectious, pleasant grin on his face. He has given more broad laughs than words to the sound films. Instead of Teddy's "Bully," he uses "Fine, fine, fine." His whole demeanor in public and In private seems to be trying to say: -(Copyright McClure Newipaaer Syndlcate)- "Buck up. Don't feel so badly about it." It may be that something like that will do more than legislation. • • • • H OW LONG?—Stranger things may have happened than the recent series of Huoy Long developments— but certainly not since fairies became extinct. Figure It out for yourself. First Mr. Long conducted a filibuster against the Glass Bill. The Democratic leaders were admittedly In search of something to stop htm. Well-founded reports got out that Mr. Long's income tax was being investigated. Party harmony WHS menaced. Then Mr. Roosevelt stopped off hero to see Mr. Hoover. Ho also saw Mr. Long and the Democratic congressional leaders. Next day the treasury denied it was Investigating the tax matter although nothing fame up that day to make a denial neeossary. The story had been in print some time. Tho following day Mr. Long abandoned his filibuster In the Senate. Some days later he and his old foe' Senator Glass were seen hobnobbing frequently together In private. Then who should take him up to the R. F. C. but Harvey Couch. In case you haven't heard, Mr. Couch is the close friend of Democratic Floor Leader Robinson, cordial former hater of Huey Long. Now comes Mr. Long making a Democratic harmony speech on the floor. Whatever personal arrangements havo been made temporarily about Long they can not last. Sooner or later the Issue of Long will have to be dealt with. He will see to that if no one else does. ISTUP—Al Smith is still the Idol of a great following. He demonstrated that on his visit here. Crowds hung on his lieols wherever ho went. S IS', a By DR. FRAffK McCOY A x , A KNOWLEDGE OF "WATER CURE" IS VALUABLE OLD Greek story tells of Tantalus,, who was punished by being placed In water wnlch covered his shoulders, but, when he tried to get any to drink, It always ran away from him. This Is one of the most undent legends about a person being treated with water, but the tale does not tell of how long the treatment lasted nor if It did Tantalus any physical or moral good. If he hud only been nblo to use u fruit juice fast at the name time, he might have been benefited, but (he story goes on that tho fruits which hung over his head worn wafted away by tho winds when evnr ho tried to grasp them. In modern medicine there have been numerous rases where patients were kept, continuously in tepid or warm baths for several weeks. These were putlonts with Hevero burns nnd who ordinarily would have died, while with tho hydrotherapy baths good re- units were achieved In most . cases. Tlit-y differed from the punishment, of Tantalus, howuver, In that -they were allowed plenty -of water to drink. Until very recent years tho only reference to hydrotherapy or tho treatment. of diseiiKO by water applications In niedloul-IIke literature were found on tho yellowed pages of the old "Nature Cure" books, but at the present time the value of water In the treatment of disease Is being recognized by medical men, nnd tho newer modi* cal encyislopedln contained detailed re-i ports on the subject. It Is a good' thing to know the correct use of water In treating various conditions. Such treatments may often bo used at home und, If correctly applied, are simple, easy, safe, cheap and effective. The value of witter lies in Its readiness. to nbsorb heat and cold and In Its aolvent powers. It may be used us hot or cold water, as Ice, as steam, or as vapor. Rightly used, water may relieve pain, promote dls- churgo from wounds, lower fovers or produ«£ thorn In certain cases, In- oreuHe skin circulation, overcome plcoplessneSB, soothe tired nerves, Htlmuluto henrt action, elo., or It may be UBod as a cleanser both Internally and externally. Most people are at a loss to know whether to use hot or cold applications to relieve puln or banish congestion. If you will remember that thera are just two principle .uses of heat or cold as applies to the body, It will be simpler for you to select the right treatment. Heat applied to the tissues will always relax muscular tension if applied to any spot where tho boat can penetrato to tho muscular fibres. On the other hand, cold will have the opposite effect of contracting the muscles while It Is being applied. It IB easy to see that inasmuch an disease and puin are umially uc- nompunierf by contraction of muscular tissue tile most relief when pain exists can be accomplished by application of heat to the congested tlstiuew. On the other hand, cold Is valuable when one wishes to produce either a tonic reaction of the tissues or to prevent too rapid eongontloii. Thqpn who arc attempting to euro of any disease will do well They evinced fully as much Interest In Al as In Governor Roosevelt. Smith's meeting with the scrubwoman schoolmate was arranged by a third party. He was informed ahead of time tho woman had gone to school with him. It made a crackerjack feature story. That's good politics. NEW YORK . By JAMES McMULLIN TJUSSIA—If Stalin is not overthrown Al within the near future men here in close touch with the Soviets have been misled gravely. The peasant revolt grows constantly stronger. They can say when tho cities shall eat. . * * • INFLATION—Local opponents of In••• nation are Inclined to give Senator Borah a vote of thanks. Ever since his remarks about the necessity for devaluing the dollar bunks and Insurance companies have been getting a huge volume of mall from nervous depositors and policy holders—all worried about inflation. There are well-informed people who think that Borah was a trifle disingenuous. It Is noted that he Is the first advocate of inflation who has ever presented" the dollar-shrinking side of the picture. New Vork opposition to the 15,000,000,000 public works bond issue In the Tugwell (or Roosevelt) program has cooled off a lot. Anti-Inflationists are beginning to see that it is vastly preferable to currency tampering as a concession to public opinion. * « » J APAN—A New York bank with first rate Japanese contacts has reports of an Important shift In Japanese policy.

"Somehow I don't feel .that way," Sheila wont on. She shook her head. "Show business hasn't got me yet. I want a real home, Dick, and I'm go- Ing to havo one." ','1 wonder," thought .Dick. He wondered, too, what would bo this ' slim girl's reception In the world she envied so. There was no doubt that her beauty would receive Its due of admiration. But Sheila Shayne was of tho stage, born and bred. It was In' her very marrow. Could' such tt girl make a place for herself in a small town? To be sure, Sheila was far from typical of Broadway. Her hands, though nicely manicured, were not gleaming- with crimson dye. Her trim Htllo suit was 'simple and Inconspicuous. Her face did not reflect the sophistication of the thoroughfare on which she was most at home. Dick Stanley thought of small towns as he know them. He thought of young girls, sheltered but worldly. Inexperienced yet assured.. Confident and also critical. "Just how are you going to go about all this?" he asked bl«ntly. Sheila laughed. "You mean how am I Kolng to make some man marry me and givo me a home? I'm not going to." She grew wistful. "It's just that In such an atmosphere I'm happier. I can't explain it." "Don't try, dear." How good Dick was! Sheila's heart softened as sho watched him, assured and worldly-wlso, helping her from the cab, calling tho porter and arranging about her baggage. He took her ticket, walked with her to the tables and gave it to the official. Then, the red cap following, he moved with her toward the train. "I exchanged that ticket and got you a lower berth," he explained. "Thnt was nice of you but you shouldn't have—" "Oh, surely I can do that little for you!" They were standing now at the entrance of the cur. The red cap, struggling with Sheila's baggage, had gono inside. "Are you going to write me?" Dick asked. "Of course." "Going to miss me?" "How could I help It?" Dick halted a train man to-ask how much time remained and was told there was barely a minute. Four tiny blonde chorus ' girls came rushing down the stairs, laughing nnd waving at their escorts who had been detained by a ruthless conductor. The girls spoke to Sheila as they crowded past. The comedian appeared, a red cap at his heels. A tall young- man, pacing the platform, flecked ashes from his cigarette, preparatory to boarding the train. • "The leading lady seems to be having a party," said Dick. He and Sheila moved aside as a gay group of men and women emerged from the train, laughing and chatting. Tne leading lady, In evening clothes, appeared and' bade them farewell. "Well—" said Sheila hesitatingly. It was time to get aboard. "Well—!" Dick began and then his jaw squared. "Look pleasant, please! I'm going to kiss you. And listen, young lady, It's not for goodby either!" "No For what then?" "For instance!" He gathered her, unprotestingly, Into his arms. There was a moment of tumult, unforeseen, unexpected. Dick's first kiss! Another instant and he- was gone. As tho train pulled out of Manhattan Transfer Sheila, cozlly abed, watched the lights twinkling far beyond. Apartment houses. Factories. Crowded, hurrl«d places, as bustling as New York. But t&morrow there would be wide sweeping meadows, winding rivers, towns twinkling past, just waking in the early morning. Children would be Hocking to school, herded into safety zones as the express thundered past. Small towns with everyone knowing everybody else. Culling out good- mornings, "Hello, Bill," "Hello, Mary." Family groups bidding a cousin or sister farew.ell. That was the world in which she would find herself tomorrow. It was going- to be an adventure. Sheila sank back with a sigh. (Continued Tomorrow) *-•-# VIEWPOINT OF THE READERS EDITOR'S NOTE: The Callfornlan will print lettert from readori.
