Political Early Bird J The longer the journey, thc greater Hie likelihood there is of lu'ckU'nts. Tliat holds as true in politics a-; it does in motoring or airplane riding. 'Jo it in a perilous jojuniey of 18 months' diirii- tiou that will lake Harold K. Slassen to the summer of 19-18, when h« hopes to obtain the Republican presidential nomination. •^, In announcing his candidacy so (Jprly, Mr. StaRscu lias defied practicul £pnsiderations as well as tradition. In fact, the tradition is probably the tnil- ijrowlh of practicality. It is almost axiomatic that smart politiuiiu's don't .00 what thc former iMinncsoiu governor has done. Even Mr, Roosevelt lit'ld jfack the announcement of his tliinl- jpul fourth-term candidacies almost to the last minute, and thus injecicd a pleasure of suspense into a TVojjono Conclusion. v Thc reasons for this are obvious. There are' many chances to stimihH; i over a long course. A candidate must . .ipmmit himself definitely on too many things. And he always runs the risit of the voters losing interest in him. 4 Further, Mr.. Stassen confroius hax.- ,2rds peculiar to his own case. First of |ll, there is his chief objective of 19.17 ; . f-thc job of tryiinr to pemiarte Kc- jrubhcan loaders in Congress to f 0 |] ow * legislative program that he ] u , s -,' .-.-Nothing, a, that program is bruul new. It embraces a number ot bip;>vti- snn views which form a legislative basis conforming tu Air. Slusscn's Jefimtion of liberalism. Some of his .ficw-s :u -e ccrfain of majority support i,n the new Republican Congress. Others Will probably be opposed. Kul in the ' linhkely event that his whole program s adopted, could and would h n try to take credit for it? And, if TO ', 10 , v yould his own party in Congress react 1 '' !

There was a vast vjnilp btiildina with a vaulted portico, -tops to be climbed, a foyer warming with women, young and old, in evening capes apd veils, and men doffing lop hats and bowing. Then more steps, a cloakroom, al last a hall \\-hich was all flowers, banners and polished floor—quite like fairyland. .' A receiving line stretched across toe hall; the delegates, fifty strong, . ;wd their chaperons tool; their places in it; then as if at a signal people began filing past, hundreds of people, whose hands Rose shook ';•:•'• ijjfid passed along to the delegate y.'\ "f x ^ 'r.'inc.

They were nil just gorgeous; any one would do. Thc one who came and put his arm around hcr was tall ,-md graceful as a faun. They marched and then they waltzed. "Nice parly," raid the favm. "Very nice," said Hose, against his white shirt-front. She was never to know his name. A waltz, a two-slop, and a different young man for each. "Nice parly." "Yes, isn't it?" "Good orchestra." "Splendid." Thc music for thc supper dance was "Let Mo Call You Sweetheart," and nose's partner, a hi.. yourig man with a fine big nose' his hair and eyes and skin all one color, a nice warm brown. The violins made their poignant most of thc song. Rose thought of Kicnard Drew, and fell like crying Ihe dancers demanded an encore- out when thc violins resumed th^ big young man did not take Rose again into his broadcloth embrace "You must be tired with all this dipping and whirling," he sa : d and led hcr into a small anteroom' oir the hall, where garlanded smilax and wistaria had been vramcd, on a trellis over a cushioned sofa.

As we said above, smart politicians don't do what Mr. Slas.sun has done. But Mr. Slasscn has proved himself a knowing politician in Hie past. Why, then, has he taken tin's inicoin'eiiUon.'t! step?
