The South and "Cheap Labor" Southern communities find southern cliamljcrs of commerce are \viirnc<) l»y the Times-Dispatch, of Kiclinioiiil, Va., against striving for industries which seek locations in the South ior the sake of "cheap labor." "If the South wants industries, mid we presume it (iocs," says the Times- Dispatch, "it should .seek industries which wish to locale here for reasons other than cheap labor. When it talks about cheap labor, jt is talking about lower living standards, and in doing so, is helping to keep those standards low." Wo are afraid the Tinges-Dispatch is dealing in theory rather than facT , ing conditions. A higher degree of prosperity, with higher incomes un(l belter living conditions, i.s the result which .the South seeks in inviting industries. Certainly it would be preferable, were it possible, to obtain high- wage industries rather than those which rise "cheap "labor." Hut high- wajfe industries require highly skilled aiul experienced workers, which the South, for the most part, lacks. The Sopth does possess a tremendous reservoir of untrained labor. Industries which can employ unskilled and inexperienced workers to advantage do not pay high wages. Hut for many communities in the South they represent a step forward, making possible an improvement in livinu standards and lifting the general level of prosperity rather than lowering it.-' They also pr.oyide a basis, through'the training which their employes receive, for fiirthpr jjrogress in industrialisation •' and fnrlhcr improvement in living slanda.rdB. ^Vc should' neither invite nor tolerate oppression or exploitation of labor. we should be short-sighted in the extreme lo extend a welcome only to : industries paying high wages. For in so doing, iu the absence of special a,(lvanta.ges, we should simply be shutting the door to the possibility of industrial development. Political 'Sense'' Sixteen' Riis.sips, charged with plotting to assassinate Stalin and to sej/.c power in the Soviet Republic, admit their guilt and welcome the death penalty.

'I'liat is partly because our basic form of government is accepted by the vsisl majority; partly because traditions permit us openly to ilill'er with the party in charj;e of the goviTiinitiiil, and partly IjcfauSc Americans arc not j»rofe.s- sionnl voters. Kui'ojic often has given American voters tile bint of a sneer, with the • suggestion that it lakes many centuries of education to develop real political sense. That may be true, lint let us Jiope it is many more centuries before we have to dispose of our parly opponents by shooting them at dawn. SUit Flying Free Political confusion and strife in Europe, with probably new governmental alignments emerging, are a roinindcr that the United States Hag today is older than the Hugs of almost all major Kuropean countries. The United States flag was adopted by Congress in 1777. Jt is, therefore, older than Brilmn's Union Jack, older than the I'Yench tricolor, or the flags of .Germany, Italy, Spain, or Ku.ssia. Wo JJKii to think of the United Stales as a young country.. So it is. But its democratic government has stood like n rock in a .swirling world. Uyery time we see .our Hag, we may well pause to think that, among other things, it stands for one of the oldest permanent and continuing governments in the world.

MIW (:» o\ WITH Tin; STORY CHAPTER XI •JUDITH looked al the headlines •^ which Virginia Bent spread before her: POLITICAL SCANDAL INVOTATES NORTH END PIPE LINE CO. At first glance sho did not see the signilicimcc o£ the news story to which Virginia pointed. Then suddenly, with n eatch in her throat, she remembered that this \viis the deal in which Steve had been engaged. "It's quilo a mess," she heard Virginia saying. "And they've in- dieted Steve." Judith dropped the newspaper lo lies' dcsU. "Bui how can they? All lie did \v;is :;ell them the pine.' "I don't know how they can, darling. All I know is that they have. Of course I'm not saying he's guilty—and nothing's been proved yet except that somebody in (he city hull made money on the deal." "Virgio, will you tell-Mr. Bor- clcn 1 can't be here this afternoon?" "Where are you going?" Judith faced her friend rcsor lulc-ly. "I'm going to Steve, Oi course." With that she left the .speechless Virginia. Downstairs she hailed a taxi arid was soon at the ofiiccs of Steve's company, resolved to talk with Steve's boss befor» sho went to Steve himself. In her excitement she had for- .ir, 'n\ in the hooscfiow llicorclically. But the boss put up bail." "Steve . . . there's nothing to ill this, is (here? I mean, all you .lid was take the order, mid they tan't- •Jusl a minute, Judith. There is something to it. More than even the boss knows. I didn't take any nancy on the deal, but I did know lhal someb'.*/ in the engineering department was going to make a profit at the expense of cily taxpayers." "That doesn't sound like you, Stephen." lie did not answer al once, just looked at her coldly. "No," he said. "I guess it doesn't. 13ut you can't have everything, you know. You can't have ideals and the girl yon want, too. I had to put (hat deal over, Judith, and you know why I closed one eye." Without another word, Judith turned and left him. Tint she wasn't finished. Before she had reached the street again she had her plan in mind. Steve Fowler was in trouble because he loved she 1/otlcn thai it was the noon hou, iind she found the place almost deserted—except for • S t u p h c ri Fowler! At (he far end of thu big room he sat at one of the salesmen's desks, his head in his hands, oblivious to her approach. "Steve . . ." she said scftly. Menly. "Judith! doing here?" • -been T.TK looked up sud -" What arc you 'Then you haven't be^n- rirrestcd?" He'smiled weakly. "Oh, sure. her, Judith told herself, and must help him. At a drug store on (lie corner o£ the block she telephoned Bob Bent. "This is Judith, Bob. You've seen the newspapers?" "You mean about Steve, I suppose? Yes, I saw them." "We must do something, Dob. You've got to help me." "f d <; "TiIIERE'S nothing much we can do," Bob Bent told her. "I phoned Sluvc this morning, and he told me his boss was taking charge of things." "But, Bob, I don't want to depend on just that. I'd feel safer if we— we got n lawyer for Steve." "How do you know Steve will fancy our mixing up in this?" "I don't care about that," rejoined Judith impatiently. "Bob, if you've ever been a friend of mine — " "All right, Judith. I'll get in touch with John Grose and have him go down and talk to Steve at leasl." "Thanks, Bob Just before closing time Judith was called to the telephone. Taking up the receiver, she heard Eden Harris' cheery voice nt the other end of the wire. "Would you be willing to try dinner with me again?" Judith hesitated. Certainly she did not feel much like dining out, and yet she disliked to say "no" to tin's friendly voice. "Why, yes," she managed at last. « At 5 o'clock his car was in front of the office building. He ran to join Judith the moincnt she ap- pcarc','. h; the eiilrahcc way. "Would you like to go to my club for a cocktaif before we eat?" he asked, assisting her into the car "I think I could stand just one," Judith told him. The liny "ladies' bar" of Eden'J dub was quiet and restful. Judith! liked the soothing pastel-green walls, the quaint old-fashioned prints, and the little kncc-hlgh' tables. Contentedly she turned the rim of her cocktail glass in her fingers, lounged deep in Hie com-' | fortable chair. "This is nice," she lold Eden. t * * TTIS face brightened. ' "If you 11 really like it, Judith, I'm going to ask you a question. Be- •," he added with a smile. 'I've been meaning to ask it ong time now." Judith did nol answer, and Eden suid, "I wanl [ I'ou to marry me, Judilii." Judith set down her glass will trembling lingers, still wordless Eden hurried on: "1 don't mcar low or tomorrow or next wec-k The very next minute would be al: •ichl with me, Judith. But . . .' the first time since she hac snown him he seemed ilustcrcd is :V at ease as a hoy. "I thought | I'd give you fair warning." Judith met his eyes squarely "I like you a great deal, Eden j but . . ." "Oh, I know it's ail backwards | [haven't kissed you. We haven 1 ' icld hands in the movies 01 strolled iti the moonlight. But love you, Judith. That's what wont you to know." Suddenly Judith leaned towarrj him, toftk his face in her coojl :iands and kissed him full upoi'l :iie Jips. It was an impulsive, aiT involuntary move, imd she stoat I up with her face crimson. "You— I you're the nicest person I've evci I *no\vn," she said slowly. Eden smiled bitterly. "But yoi| don't love me?" ; I—I don't know, Eden, couldn't give you ati'answer now| You see," she met his qui: gaze. "You see, Sieve's in trouble. 1 1 He nodded. "Oh, yes. There':! ,cvc. I was optimistic enough tcl think that perhaps there wasn 1 " . now." "But it's not a question of that, 1 ) Judith insisted. "He—lie's rea'd;! in trouble because of me. Ami-" and we were together so longl Eden." Wearily Eden drained his glassl set it down firmly on the ]iUlT table. When he faced Judith ogaul he was smiling. "Shall we havT dinner now?" lie touched her anil as impersonally ;is though he hatf never, a moment before, profcsscil his love for her, "And shall wl try John's Rendezvous again, ol lio you think it might be bal luck?" All the way to the restaurant hj talked gaily of insignificant thinj but beneath the brittle surface his gaiety there \vas,.an under current of despair he could no| hide from Judith.
