Politics and Public Service Hoyond anything he had ii possible, laments Cavl iHailoy, nomineu for governor, has been the pressure to which lie has been subjected since tho Democratic primary of List August 11, The pressure of which the governor- to-be complains has' been that of thousands of office seekers, importunately pressing their demands for places on ,tlie public payroll in recompense for services allegedly performed in the primary campaign. There are 'supposed to be fl.OOO state jobs, great and srmdl, within the control of. the governor. When, he takes the governor's chair next January Mr.. Bailoy must choose or compromise between rewarding the politically faithful and serving the best:interests of the state. So far as we are aware there has never been a governor who has had lliiv" slamina to put political considerations aside in the filling of public officef Kvcn those most sincerely committed to a program of ed'icicnt public service have been unable to resist the pressure of the political job-seekers. The presumption is that in this respect 11 r, Bailey will not prove , superior to the best of his predecessors. Jfc is understood lo have ambitions to rise further in public life. The commonly accepted method of ' achieving such advancement is to <le' *»lo|o *a strong .RIK| loyal political ov- ganiiiiilio!), supported out of the fpub^ ^»' Ijc Jrojisury. It-would bo an inlci-est- ing esp'erimeiit, however, to see if single-minded devotion to the public welfare, regardless of what coinmonly is regarded, as political expediency, might not reap a destrvcd reward in public support and approval, After iill the vnnows departnicnts ,-ind commissions of tho slate government arc supposed to serve the welfare of the people in general rather than to he instruments lo advance the political interests of any individual or group, llight not the executive who treated his appointive power purely as a public trust gain a reward in public confidence exceeding an y advantage to be achieved through the distribution of jobs on a political basis? We are cynical enough to doubt it but wo should like to see it tried. There's nothing glamorous about scieen beauties lo me. .1 sec Uicm before they turn on the glamour. — Walter West, movie- nwkc-up expert.

SOW GO OX WITH Till: STOl'lV CHAPTER IX .... . fpED Graham was in'port'for al- j. mbst:a week, setting the Manner ready for ils next flight, and Kay saw him every day between her own trips on the Overland 1'OlllC. The young pilots at Ship Harbor were all interested in the new girl. Though she was usually seen wilh Ted, they liked to dance and flirt with her. Monte Blaine was parlieularly attentive. But the flying colony knew , Monte was the "hero" type of an earlier era—dashing, adventurous, holder of-trans-continental speed records. Once Monte took a private plane and ilcw to Reno in less than two hours to have a date with Kay. She felt enormously flattered, but when Ted Graham heard about it he called Monte on the carpet and gave him a lecture. Tlie day after Monte's trip to Reno, Kay had a wire from Central headquarters, transferring her to the Oakland aivport. Doris Lee look Kay's place in Reno and de elded it would b« convenient to slay on ill the apartment Kay had rented. Kay hurried out lo Ship Harbor thai afternoon to see the Flying Mariner fake olt for -Hawaii. Her taxi was caught in il jam nnd she didn't arrive in time to see Ted. She ran clown to Die quay just as [he giant flying boat v/as taxiing out into open water. * a * 'THE sun had sot and Kay saw -*- the ship's lights, blinking,red and green. Then she could 'see no more. She wiped the tears .from her eyes and turned to find •iMonto Blaine.•Etaiiding Jicjide hcrj tall and broad and clean/watching the ship disappear. Monte followed her down the quay. "Come on, sweetheart, cheer upl" he said. "Give us a smile!" Kay smiled indulgently. Monte, In spile of his broad shoulders and handsome, dark head, seemed o young. t » * r p\VO days later Kay found an - 1 - aparlmenl near the beach at Ship Harbor where, from her window, she could see llic trans-Pa- cific liners, moored at the quay. How she envied the men of the crews on those flights! There seemed to be magic in the names of the places they visited—Honolulu, French frigate Shoalb*, Midway, Guam, Manila. . Ted Graham was away from the home port for the next two weeks. It was the time o£ the Easter holidays, so Dickie, his adopted son, was home from 'military school. Dickie liked the grime and dirt, of the hangars nnd lie liked tools. Since Jerry Searles (wilh whom Ted lived) was at the airport all day, Dickie spent most of his time there, too. Kay met him the first day of his vacation, and he came to her with shrill cries of joy, pulling grimy lillle fisls around her waist. She didn't mind. She was on her way home with the evening meal, literally, in her arms. Dickie was hungry, lie said, "Pal, you wouldn't invite a guy in lo eat, would you? Jerry's food is all right, bin it all comes out of tin cans." Kay laughed. "I'm afraijl mine all comes from flic delicatessen store, Dickie, but you're perfectly welcome!" "I think Ted likes you," Dickie confided, over the ice cream. "Once I slipped into his room and he was drawing little circles and writing 'Kay' in them. That's your name isn't it?" Tho doorbell rang and Kay went to answer. It was, as she had expected, Monte Blaine. He had brought one of the other apprentice pilots with him. Balph Bangs was a bright-eyed youngster with curly hair and a slight scar on the left check. Monte demanded, "Why didn't you invite us lo the liouscwarm- ing? Which reminds me, the house hasn't been warmed and you've been living in' the colony for a week. Shame, shame!" ig".' Sometimes I don'1 go lo bed at all!" "Dickie!" Kay said, gathering him into i-er arms.' "You're so sleepy right now you don't know what you're saying," 4 t it HE walked down the beach with the child. A heavy fog'was rolling in from the bay and, after she had lurned Dickie over lo Jerry Soarles and was on her way back to the apartment, she could scarcely sec more than a few feet ahead. Monte and Ralph were talking and smoking when she returned "It's a bad night out for Ilysrs," Kay announced. Each of the men shivered, feeling the fog in their bones. "We called up some friends," Monte told her. "Thought tonight was as good as any for the housewarming." Tho bell rang again and Kay thought it must be Monlc's friends. Insiead it was Doris Lee on the threshold. "The night plane was grounded," Doris said. . "We couldn't leave the airport in this fog, so here I am!" Ralph Bangs was leaning over the radio as Doris entered the Jiv« ing room. As soon as she saw him she dropped her bag wilh a clatter. "So it's, you!" she exclaimed. The young pilot blushed. "Why, Doris—" Kay salfl, in surprise, "Then you know each other?" Doris' chin lifted firmly. "And how! Th'; last time I saw that guy he was Hying out of Cenlral airport. For a while we were good fri?nds—until I began to hear talts about this hsmlsome Romeo and did a little investigating. Do you know what I found out? He has a girl in every port from Cheyenne to New York! After that the air around Central wasn't big enough for tho pair of I us. One had to leave and the best | man won—so he got out." This amiable quarrel lasted un- ! til the others began to arrive. They were all members of the flying colony. Kay was glad they accepted her as one. of them; it niiic-jher feel that she "belonged." With this feeling she went to Hie windows and looked out at the thick black fog. Monte came up beside her. "Don't look at the fog!" he said. "Br-r-r! It used to be a nightmare, but it's not any more on the Irans-Pacific flight,, thanks to Ted. Last; week he Hew fi^m Honolulu to the mainland and didn't see the ocean after he left Diamond Head. That's progress in the air!"
