The last item on the list of objectives for progressive voters reads like ihis: " . .. "The right of every American -*to lire under n government strong enough to suppress the lawless, wise enough to sec beyond .Ih'cVllish desires of the moment, and just enough to consider the welfare of the people us a whole." , That is a noble objective. It is well to reaffirm that every American bas Hint right, and to insist that the reality at Washington come as close to the ideal as is humiinly..possible. Hut to do isp-it'wil^'h^noc^ssary 'for us to rcniembcr. constantly tliat • a river canno'l rise above its source . . . that government never will be any better' than .the people as a whole \vant it to be. For wo, the people, are the government. Our constitution was skillfully designed to make us so. When we demand strength, wisdom, nml justice for our government, we simply are demanding those qualities for ourselves; contrariwise, the very forces which assail (he government and occasionally iireveiit it from exercising those qualities come also from ourselves. The government must be strong enough to suppress lawlessness—as, for instance, during prohibition, when the lawlessness of bootlegging drew ils support directly from the great mass of the The government must be wise enough to sec beyond the selfish desires OUT OUR WAY BLYCHEV1LLE (ARK.); CO.URIEU NEWS of Hie nioincnl—;IH, for instance, in 1928 liiul 1B29, when ;niy alU-mpL at \VitKliinglcn UKJ curb the ruiuiwiiy boom wonkl linvo drawn fi-oin all coru- cr.s of Hie land a Ijlnst slronu cnont'h lo Icn-cl Uio walls of Juricho? • Thu government must l;u just enough, lo consider th« wclfurc ol' all (he people—wlicti the people, all across Hie land, orgaiiine themselves iulo pressure JJTOUJM lo make sure 'thsil tlieir own group pi-oblci-is shall receive attention before the problems of the tiatioii as u whole?

Ted, they "aid, was the last man in jho world lo whom a air! should lose her heart. They all had heard him say, over and over, that romance, for him, was behind, lie was never going t o fail in love again. Then lie returned. He came down out of the skies nftei- two weeks of gazin a at the blue- Pacific, and the first person he saw on she-re \va.s- K;iy Dunn Dickie was at her side, trim in his Urcy military uniform, It seemed so naiiiral that the l»u- should be llieic, waiting for him. To Ted Graham's disciplined mind it seemed well-ordered,' exactly right. Kay sensed (his arid, for ^ome reason she could not have' explained, sho fell annoyed IJint he should accept the incident ;ti such :i mattcv-of-fact way. She had J!one to the military school to get Dickie, had secured leave for him lo come io meet his father. ICay Ihousht that Ted should have been thrilled at this reception. 'FED said (o Kay, "And how is the job 0:1 Overland Airways?" It was Dickie who replied for iici-. -Pa! lives here .iiow, and works, night on the, beach near us.. ,1 had, dinnqr. wjlh her nlmost every night durinjMlis holidays " Ted looked- at the. girl a mo- iiMinl, then said quietly, "I think you will like it better at the air port here. There's more li(c. Do you like the colony?" "f adore them all," she fold him His eyes were searching hers steadily. "I thank you for looking after Dickiei-during his holidays. I'm afraid Jerry lets him run wild. The Japanese hoy who tends the house Is supposed to look after him, but he doesn't." "Sato doesn't cook as good as Kay, either," Dickie put in, and they both laughed. Dickie went on, "I don't like the military school any more. I'd rather stay at home!" "But all little hoys have to go to school," Kay said. "I could stay at home and go lo day school," Dickie said, tearful. "I don't like to stay up in the barracks every night, it's cold. And dark." Kay patted his head. "Now, that isn't being o big soldier. Uracc up. Be brave." "But I want to live at homo," Ditkie repeated. "1 never had a lioine—like yours—with flowers in :he windows and pretty curtains. There's nolliing at the barracks but iron beds and bare walls " Ted put a hand on the boy'i shoulder and they walked toward he roadslcr. drove up flic- beach to Ted's little house on the shore. ? oi- a few moments they watched he other children playing games on the sand. Then Ted opened he door of the car. Sato came •mining out to greet them, his nouth in a toothy grin. "it's ;ilmost 6; why don't you slay and have dinner with lis?" fed said to Kay. "Yes!" Dickie said eagerly. "Yes 1 She can holp Sato cook it better." Kay cried out with gay laughter, led was apologetic. "Dickie! You don't ask a lady to dinner and then tell her to go cook it." "Dinner ready," the Japanese said, with his toothy grin redou- bted. "Pork nnd beans. Boss home from long trip. Me open six cans. Got coffee, too." Ted turned the switch in the car. "I think we'll dine in a restaurant," he said, "as usual." B ' jt K ay stepped out of the car. •No,-' she s.-iid. "Yon go to the corner grocery and. buy a steak this big!" She spread 'her arms. And all the trimmings—mushrooms, potatoes, tomatoes. Bring them back io the house here And don't forget a brick of ice cream for Dickie." . . , ,' She didn't wail fora reply. She went inside with Dickie at her heels. Ted looked after them, smiling, then drove oft toward rl grocery. ' I Sato was pleased to have K\ in the kitchen.

I "Then take Dickie in the livin [ 'oom and tell him all about yo I flight from Manila," she sail balo and I will manage here the kitchen." When he hesitated, slsc sail Please.

She heard one loud cry of d ight from the child and knew T. lad given him some present fro I one of those fabulous lands. Tin I she was busy for a few mimil L with the steak, and heard nolhii I more. When the steak was steamiil on the huge platter and garnislu, with red and green, she lurni and saw Ted, in the doorway the kitchen, regarding her with' fervent smile. Kay blushed.
