Juveniles to Give Program. The Juvenile Music Club will present the program before the Monday Music Club at its regular meeting at the Presbyterian Church this evening. D A Y A T C A P I T A L A S I N T E R P R E T E D BY DAVID LAWRENCE Continued from Page Four, up, or, at least, maneuvered so that it does not do the Administration any publicity damage. But the mere fact that Hhe Administration wants to hush 'something up and is afraid of a congressional inquiry is in itself suspicious. Even Senator Norris of Nebraska now is said to favor an inquiry only by the Federal Trade Commission instead of by Congress. But it will be recalled that, in 1928, when the inquiry into public utilities was first suggested by the late Senator Tom Walsh of Montana, Mr. Norris and others felt that a committc of. Co gross would do a better Job than would the Federal Trade Commission. The utilities, on the other hand, believed that a congressional committee would not be as much in their interest as would be a Federal Trade Commission inquiry. Certainly, so far as giving the inquiry a bi-partisan handling so that all sides may be represented, an investigation by a Senate and House committee would be decidedly in the public interest. But there's another reason. The Federal Trade Commission is an executive agency. Its members are subject to presidential appointment and removal. One executive agency ought not to be asked to investigate another executive agency. To investigate executive agencies is plainly the duty of Congress, whicli created the Tennessee Valley Authority and is being asked now to vote millions of dollars for more and more public ownership projects. It surely would seem that, if there is nothing to hide, the Administration would not care who conducts an Inquiry to find out whether there can be decency and honesty ind fairness in government.

And that led to the question: "I've noticed that you're A steady Camel smoker, Mi.M Rccd. Do you have definite tcasons for preferring them to other cigarettes?" HERE'S MISS REED'S ANSWER: "Yes, indeed, I certainly fate. Camels arc distinctly different in io many ways. Going through my stunts over and over is x severe test of healthy nerves. 1 smoke Camels all through the day, and my nerves don't feel the least bit frayed. Being so mild, they arc Rcntlc to my throat too. After a meal, I enjoy Camels--'for digestion's sake.* You sec -- io so many ways, Camels agree with me." DARING? Yes! Foolhardy? No! fane KecJ kaawi u-bat she's doing. And she is careful in her choice of a cigarette, because, 1$ she says: "It tncaos a lot to me to know that my cigarette -agrtts with me!" Millions of other people find that Camels give them what they want in smoking! It's Camcli: for star stunt girl--lone Rccd! It's Camels for the famous diving expert -- Commander Elis- bcrg! And for golf champion Ralph Guldahl; speed flier Roscoc Turner; and men and women in all walks of life.

"I notice that so maay of the stars prefer Camels."
