If No one is more important to the adolescent girl than her father. Since no relationship between parents and children can be built up all of a sudden, it follows that a girl's father must from the outset develop a relationship of sympathy and confidence between them. In the natural course of events, children are closer to their mother than to their father, and boys as well as girls have a better chance to get acquainted with her. She cares for them both physically and spiritually, and the feminine point of view is therefore part of their daily life. Later the boy normally comes in close contact with other boys and with men, and so his training in human nature is rounded. treated kindly, he explained, snakes are not dangerous at all. It is a well-rounded exhibition.

A Roosevelt-Hull scheme for breaking EDITORIAL Louden Nelson ment for snake bites. Point No. 4 suggesls the recipient of the bite "Go to a doctor," and after that, Point No. 5, inject an anti-venom. This is not true with a girl. Her close contacts after she leaves the nursery are apt to be with other ing methods just on the eve of the Republican national convention. Certainly the Franco - American past is the biggest bet yet among such negotiated agreements. The Canadian pact covers a greater volume of trade; but France is the first major power to sign up with the Hull idea. A century of bickering between Washington, and Paris over tariffs and quotas, which has blocked any previous broad commercial treaty with France, is the background of this particular documentation of the Roosevelt "good neighbor" foreign policy as applied to trade matters. Platform Fore-Glimpse AND the agreement with France is made just as various Republican party factions are organizing to influence what the party will say in its campaign platform on this very important subject of tariff and foreign markets.

The one thing we know about him is as far removed as Loma Prieta from the low tides of racial prejudice and greed. "He was a colored man. He left his entire fortune to Santa Cruz school district No. 1." This is the succinct inscription on the stone which marks his grave in Evergreen Cemetery. How ironical that the first sentence should be charged to racial distinction! Those who remained to pay tribute on stone could have delivered a more appropriate message for the impressionable white children of Mission Hill school who go every year to place flowers on Nelson's grave. He was a colored man. Yes, indeed. His heart .was colored with affection for those who were kind to horn. His mind was colored by rosy dreams of the aducational benefits to be derived from a gift of $300. He left behind him the rainbow colors of unselfishness, pointing up through the canopy of years to his "Green Pastures." Toil in the fields in the shadow of the lash was his lot at the age of these boys and girls on the Mission Hill campus. Across the continent, in a new world, he became a free man in the little seaside village of Santa Cruz. What better proof have we of the genuine humanness of Santa Cruz' early settlers than is found in this poignant story of an ex-slave, who left his entire fortune to aid in educating their children? THE TOWNSEND CASE they are an unknown quantity, and the chances are that she may never learn to understand them or take them in her stride. If, on the other hand, she has found a companion in her father, has learned the masculine point of view from him, and discovered that men are humaij beings and neither gods nor ogres, she is far better fitted for life than is the one-sided, lances, and -Simon Legree's old favorite, the blacksnake. The most fascinating to as was the 26-foot pytlion, "the largest snake in captivity." If you guess its weight, Meems Bros. & Ward, Inc., importers and exporters of animals, birds and reptiles, will give you a pet snake free. An attendant just wouldn't let us leave without guessing. We put down 2 pounds 6 ounces. It seemed safe enough at the time, but we wish now we had left off the 2 nowhere, we moved on. E. Ross Allen invited us down to Silver Springs, Florida, "any Sunday afternoon" to watch snakes being "milked for venom" at the Florida Reptile institute. The milking process consists of making the snake yawn its widest over a funnel-shaped glass and then pressing on the proper spot (on the snake, of course) until the venom drops out. Hundreds of snakes are exhibited at the show including vipers, adders, cobras, cotton mouth moccasins ("Very Poisonous"), rattlers, copperheads, beautiful coral and harlequin snakes, green tree snakes, bull snakes, king snakes, fer-de- form which they can offer as a party standard, rather than depend on candidate personality. That will please the Democrats, for it will give them a chance to concentrate their fire, Partisan issues can be more clearly defined and the warfare can come out into the open, rather than confine itself to the present sniping practice. Leaders of both parties agree that the campaign will be bitter. Doubtless it will be the old-fashioned mud-slinging kind; with the most convincing beraters winning the most votes. It seems to make a difference to either party that this type of campaign is more disruptive to the country than a sedately conducted one. While partisan activities are at low ebb the public may well take a deserved rest, and strengthen itself for the free-for-all which is sure to come. her husband wisely and to make a happy and lasting marriage, than the girl whose father was a mere acquaintance to her. purely feminine product.

E. Townsend over to federal court for his action in walking out on the inquiry last week. The committee should prefer the alternative of trying to forget the whole affair, for public opinion as a whole is no longer on the side of an investigation which strikes at the character of the man rather than consider the cause he represents. In the name of fairness, the committee should have proceeded courteously. Any man who tries seriously in a troubled world to correct certain social defects, of which impoverished old age is one, is entitled to respect of men we elect to office. There are many of us who don't think the Townsend plan is economically possible, but we should have the good manners to apply reason rather than ridicule in our discussion with leaders or advocates of the plan. JH ATP MAKE IT ZV&H ALL AROUND- ' WHAT D YA S4Y ? "TRAGIC MISUNDERSTANDING" As a mark of the depths to which the old fashioned sanctity of contract principle has fallen, Monsieur Leon Blum's announcement that France's debt to the United States is "wiped out" stands alone. This is quite in line with the chancellor's recent action in omitting all mention of England's debt to this country in his recent budget message to Parliament. Yet, the naivete of Monsieur Blum in ascribing American indignation at this non-payment to a "tragic misunderstanding" is almost refreshing. News dispatches do not give in detail what arguments the Gallic statesman set forth to explain the nature of the "tragic misunderstanding." The millions of dollars America turned over to France, both during and after the war, were offered, and accepted by France, as a loan, not a gift. Now France alleges that if these funds were not a gift they should have been; therefore, she will consider them as such. Many Americans feel that our entering into the war at all by the side of France was due to a "tragic misunderstanding." But that is a fait accompli. All we can do now is resolve not to repeat the error. AND WHAT WAS A ROOF OVER. THEIR.

The Hitler government now requires future judges and lawyers to spend, as well as a year in the army and six months in labor service, two months between the time they receive a law degree and their final bar examination in a special camp to learn rifle practice and legal technicalities. Seven hundred law students took quarters at a camp in Jeutuerborg Sunday as the first group of these so-called "Soldiers of the Law." They started their militaristic law career by serving orderly duty at the "Reich Law Guardians' Association" annual convention meeting in the Leipzig Supreme Court. . In the camp these brown uniformed students in their overseas caps will learn marching, rifle practice, and hand grenade throwing. Study of legal phrases of the accepted Nazi political and racial theories will offer mental stimulation. Hitler combines mental training with physical aptitude. German jurisprudence steps forward well armed. POLITICAL TACTICS At present the composite political picture offers striking contrasts. The Democrats present a unified, confident front. G. O. P. leaders scramble for control, with pre-convention jockeying among would-be- candidates a perfectly normal condition for any party "out of power." Republicans frankly are alarmed at the "defeatist attitude" which is much in evidence. They console themselves with the thought that things will be different after the convention. . Both parties doubtless will change their tactics following their conventions. The Republicans will have a plat-
