Of course, costly tropicals can Hie, and usually are, Iboarded by some of tihe snootier pet shops; but fish of tJhe common golden variety just aren't worth the trouble and expense. This is no problem, though, for fish owners who have heard about the big pool in the lobby of Lowe's Lexington Theatre.

About ten years ago a man wandered in wiitih a bowl under arm and asked the manager if he might leave his pets there for the summer. Others heard about it and by now the parking service is utilized to the extent that the (theatre is considering installing another tank or two. About 30 times this montlh, according to Assistant Manager Miller, big cars driven under the marquee and chauffeurs have alighted with small acquariums to be ceremoniously emptied into the lobby pool. Nobody ever succeeds in reclaiming his fish in the autumn since most of them look alike. Two turtles have been deposited there this year.

If you hear a song that thrills you, Sung by any child of song, Praise it. Do not let the singer Wait deserved praises long. Why should one who thrills your heart Lack the job you may impart? If you hear a prayer that moves you By Its humble, pleading tone, Join it. Do not let the seeker Bow before its God alone. Why should not your brother share The strength of "two or three" in prayer? If you see the hot tears falling From a brother's weeping eyes, Share them.

And by kindly sharing Own your kinship in the skies. Why should anyone be glad When a brother's heart is sad? If a silvery laugh goes rippling Through the sunshine on his face, Share It. 'Tis the wise man's saying For both grief and joy a place. There's health and goodness in the mirth In which an honest laugh has birth.

A NEW STORY: DEMAND AND SUPPLY The commonest way of explaining America's industrial depression is to say that the nation is suffering from great overproduction.

This, as a technical explanation, is quite correct. But to accept it without looking into the things that lie back of it is to get an entirely lopsided picture of the day's most pressing problem. Technically, of course, we are overproduced. We can make more automobiles, electric refrigerators, steel rails, rocking chairs, electric light bulbs, shoes, auto tires, plows and what-not than we can possibly sell. In that sense, we are up against overproduction in a very real and unpleasant way.

But there is another side to it another name for this problem. If, instead of calling it overproduction, we call it underconsumption, that other side becomes clear; and it also becomes evident that the traditional method of solving the problem is very much out of date. We may be making more of all of these things than we can sell but we are not making more of them than we need, and we shall not be for a long, long time. Not until every citizen has all that he needs of this multitude of goods shall we truly have overproduction. During the last few years Iowa and Kansas farmers have had to burn corn and wheat while city workers have gone hungry; and the same farmers have had to drive super-anuated cars and wear wornout shoes while the city auto and shoe factories have been idle for want of orders.

On every hand we have had millions of people needing all sorts of commodities very badly; but because they have been unable to buy them, factories have Short Cuts to Shortcake. Between 20th and And all from the very 21st streets, and best families, too! Fourth and Third Avenue, the park is almost the only section of Little Old New. York that has remained unchanged as the city reared and spread. lHannon also is rather old and changeless having taken his job in 1002. By tihis time he has earned the gratitude of hundreds of parents, for he guarded and disciplined thousands of children who have romped there through the years.

For misbehavior, such as throwing gravel' or picking flowers, Hannon metes out sentences such as walking 10 times around the park, or sitting quietly on a bench for half an hour.

Of course no traveler knows what to do with them in a crowded stateroom, and the continuous sloshing is uncomfortably suggestive of wild waves and seasickness Also there's the story about the broker who recently returned from an unsuccessfull deep-sea fishing trip to And Ibis bachelor apartment full of goldfish. They were swimming in his bathtub, in the basin, the kitchen sink, his vase. There were little two-for-a-nickel goldfish occupying' his highball glasses, and even a few in the inverted glass shade of bis chandelier. Batfly shaken, he decided to mix a drink and think things over. But thought better of iit wben he found a goldtfisih in each of the ice trays of his refrigerator.

Ordinary conditions were supplanted by the latest approved methods and the result was a saving of twelve minutes of time, SCO feet of travel and 737 motions. Three squads of women, each with a captain, checked up every minute, move and motion in the evolution of the shortcake from the raw material to the finished product and the "figgers" were double-checked by a home-management agent and a home-demonstration specialist. Extension service workers who are able to trot along the ingredients of a shortcake at so fast a pace have got the shortcake issue reduced to two dips, a couple of shakes and a hot oven. One woman claims the saving 6 QHJOTTATBCNS of just sixty hours of time, twenty-five miles of walking and 227,000 motions a year through the application of the I few kitchen economies which mark the gap between the go-as-you-please short- I cake of the old school and the free- wheeling affair that today alights on the dinner table with a minimum of operated at a fourth or a fifth of normal capacity, The Administration's industrial control bill is designed to get around this trouble by gearing production directly to consumption. In the long run, however, this will not do much good if it simply prevents industry from producing more than can be sold.

It must increase consumption it must, that is to say, raise the general purchasing power of the nation if it is to get us out of our difficulty. Let the ordinary man get his hands on enough money to buy the things he needs and we shall have a broad and enduring prosperity. We shall not have to talk about overproduction for many, many years to come. effort and a maximum of speed. Every false and unnecessary motion has been eliminated in ihis techno cratical shortcake.

Clarke, author, playwright and artist, has written his last one-act play, put the finishing touches on his last children's story. Death figured in the last picture. News of the sudden passing of Franklin's genial artist and dramatic authority came as a rude shock to scores of friends, few of whom knew he was even ill.

Dick Clarke will be missed. He was a genial friend, a loyal believer in Franklin, and all that it possessed in the way of accomplishments. He was 53, but at heart and in action he was almost as young as his son, Richard, of whom a father was never prouder. He knew the hearts of little children, and wrote entertainingly for them. He was a successful and resourceful cartoonist; possessing a wide range of imagination, and had the ability to put into pen and ink sketches the thought and motive that make cartoons forceful.

Studying art in Baltimore and New York, he worked later for several humorous magazines, drew illustrations on assignment for Life and Judge, was identified with the art department of a Cleveland paper and then returned to Franklin. It was Dick Clarke who designed the covers for the Old Home Week literature of 1910; he drew cartoons for The Evening News on occasion. He was generous with advice and counsel to aspiring young artists. A student of the day's events and develop Women's Chardonize HKDSE Attractive dull lustre Simulated seams I Woven striped borders!
