AAA Checks and Politics Two ye.u's (IRQ, it is readily recalled, the Republicans made much ol' the fiK't 'that farm benefit checks canK: through in substantial numbers in October, just pri> i to the IMII- grossionill elections. The cry of iwlilics was raised, and it was even charged that .'Secretary Wallace had held up the payments in order to have them reach the farmers a few days before they went to the -pqlls, 'TlnJ^ year it appears , that election day-,will v come and go before farmers,' in this' vicinity at least, will see anything of their payments for co-operation in' the government's soil conservation program. Measurement of acreage to determine the payments Which Mississippi county farmers have earned lias not yet been begun. It will take considerable time and before the payments can be computed and checked many more weeks will pass. It is safe to predict that Christinas will have passed before government checks in any considerable .'Vplujno will reach this county. The> dplay Jnijiy, be just -us well. The\mpney 'will do just as'•'much or more good' next winter than it woiil.d now.' 'B'n'lMf.the authorities at Washington played, politics with AAA payments two- years ago they must be playing it,in reverse this year. ' Militarism and CCC The .Ui lues of (he CCC liavo been tnentioned often enough. It needs to ,- be remembered, however, that the whole'project could be robbed of most of its.usefulness if the militarists succeeded in getting their hands on it. Maj.-Gen. George Van Horn Mosc- ley, commander of the Fourth Corps Area, suggests that the CCC be expanded to take in every 18-year-old boy in the United States, and that it add military training to its curriculum. Such expansion, of course, would amount to conscription—and would give us a cross between Miller's compulsory labor camps and the universal draft feature of European military service laws. It is him! to sec why the country needs either of these things. As things stand, we have a great asset, in,the CCC. We cannot afford to reduce its value by adding fea- ttfres 'that would be repugnant to American traditions. OUT OUR WAY Main Street Parking The Main street parking problem is often serious in Blylhcvillc and during the busy fall season it is particularly bad. There i«, unfortunately, no way of incroa'fiing the available .space, but we believe lhat what room there is might be used to better advantage. May we suggest: 1.—-That merchants, their em- ployes ami professional men occupying Main street offices hike the trouble to park their cars in the rear, where possible, thus allowing more room in front for the cars of customers. 2.—Thai fresh paint be applied to the parking lines on the pavement and tliat an ordinance bo passed, if none already exists, making it a misdemeanor to park otherwise lhan between Ihc lines, thus eliminating the waste of space that results from the present absence of order and system in parking. "~ THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, lose ->J'$ The Last Straw The theory of male dominance has taken a severe drubbing since the turn of the' century. Behind 'executives' desks or airplane controls, on golf courses, in law olt'ices—wherever there's a Will, there's a May. Women smoke, cut their hair short—not lon^ ago, in fact,' a movie actress started a women's trouscr vogue. Now another blow to masculine superiority comes from Hollywood. For months casting directors have frantically sought some, one to play the role of lluck Finn, freckled, rugged, barefoot hero of Mark Twain's famous story. If ever.'a youngster WHS 100 per •cent boy, lluck Firm was. And 300 '.lads llockctj fo the studio to try for 11ie:..;coveled-rolc.

NOW CO ON WITH THE (TORY CHAPTER XIV IfAY rclaintd, neatly and pre- ""'clscly pigeonholed in her mind, unforgctable high lights o( her three weeks' honeymoon trip-on'.Ihc ..trims-Pacific flight. She remembered vividly that incident whcn'-a strikingly beautiful woman, obviously a Eurasian, had made a scene in an American cabare: wnorc Ted had taken Kay. He was alone at Ihe bar when the woman entered, swathed in while from turban to dancing pumps. Kay had come out of the dressing room lo find Ted engaged in conversation with Ihe newcomer. As Kay approached the woman turned, staring coldly, and said something in a threatening voice, which Kay did not understand. Ted had passed it off by saying that lllali was a woman ho had met in dancing places here and there in the ports on Ihc transpacific route. She Was a dancer of some fame. Another indelible memory of the trip was the excellent discipline atllie riaiib-Pacifl.'Airwajs bases on Hie liny islands sjrung across the oaan Ka> thought the colonizers had done "well. It was all pail of the scientific planning o£ \\lnch Ted was so proud.' Ka> treasured these memories because, almost as <=oon as the honeymoon was over,'Ted had to le.ivu hei, this time for a longer st.iy in Ihe Orient. Shu Was very lonely in: th'e-little house on the beach at Ship Harbor. '' . » + • t)T Dickie.was with her now, highly pleased lo be a* home. Dickie was going to day school, arid aside from school hours, was usually wilh Kay. He came to adore her and; when the flying colony saw what an attractive iiome she was miking for.ted and his adopted son, It'took her to its collective heart. • • As days;passed.H»y missed the excitement-of tying. Her job on the Overland, Airways had never been a grind. Each day had brought new faces and new experiences. She mlsjed the spirit of gay camaraderie she" had enjoyed. -Nov; she was Ted Graham's wife, and there was • certain dignity that sh« felt she owed to the title. Doris had takeover Kay'« post s stewardess, flying between Reno and Oakland, and there were nights when the two got together Icr litlle chats. •Alice Miller was expecting a child and Chuck, her pilot-husband, had received a raise. "Kay, darling," Doris commented dryly, "fometimes I think girls only take these jobs as stepping-stones to marriage. But not for me! I love my job and my freedom." * * * Jf AY laughed. "And when Ted is away I'm perfectly miserable. That's life, with a vengeance." Dickie rose up from the floor to say, "But I stay with you every night. You're not.lonely with a big rrian like me in the house, arc you?" They both laughed, and Dickie returned to his model airplane. "You'll step oil- with Ralph Bangs yet!" Kay warned. Doris frowned. "That was a menu trick you played on me, sending Ralph over 'to dine with me that night at your apartment. The ver7 next day I was*walking along the beach willi a parasol lie- hind my head. I heard a whistle, and; when I turned around.—it was Ralph' And u as his face red! He thought I was somebody else. I brought the;parasol down on his head." v At this moment the-telephone rang, and'Kay, got'up, to answer it I( tlic next lime I meet that guy I'll break his h'ead 1 " Boris continued. The voice on.the phone wn: Ralph Bang's. : "It's for. you Doris," Kay said. Doris picked up the phow. She said, "Listen, you—" But then she stopped to listen to what Ralph was saying. After .a'-minute or so she lorgol her indignation, turned lo Kay and her voice was eager, even gay. "There's a party going ,on over at Ralph's apartment. A Whole mob from the flying colony. They want us lo come over right away." "Us?" Kay slid, laughing. "I'm afraid you'll have to go alone Joris. I've got to help Dickie with lis lessons. Arithmetic has got me down! And I'm writing a let- .er to Ted, to go off on the next plane to Manila." * * * nORTS frowned,.but turned back to the telephone, and listened again. Ralph had heard what Kay said. "Monte Elaine's on the wire now," Doris added. "He thtnks he can persuade you to come." Kay came to the r«ione, and id indulgently, "Hello, Monte. Sorry. No can do. I'm such a dutiful wife and home-maker that I'm not any more fun. I'd put a crimp in the parly. But please have a good time, and invite mo some other time—when Ted's here. We'd bolh love to come." | Dons put on her cloak again. Six weeks is a long time when the cat's awayl" she said. "But you know your mind." She added, in a low voice, so that Dickie couldn't hear, "Sato is a competent n-u-r-s-e, if you get what'I mean." Dickie stood up, to say indignantly, "I don't need a nurse! I even fly my own plane now. Yesterday Jerry and I sneaked off be • hind the hangars, and he let me pilot a transport plane all by my- fi" "Dickie!" Kay said. "They don't let little boys fly big planes. And Jerry was in San Francisco yesterday." But Dickie's vivid imagination suffered not 9ne whit. He went on glibly, "Olvihcn, that was my brother who took me up and let me fly the plane. He lives way over yonder on the other side of Ihe bay. You don't know. You haven't lived here long." Of course Dickie didn't have a brother, but this time Kay only smiled. "Now you get right to your spellirvr," she said. Then she walked With Doris to the door. When she turned to Dickie again he was looking at a map of Ihe trahs-Faciflc flight. "Pal, where would Ted be tonight?" he asked. Kay pointed at a dot On the map. "Right there. Flying through Hie moonlight over the ocean. I'll bet lie's thinking about you," Then she whispered to herself, "And about me." • For a second, something like fear clutched at her heart. - Suppose something should happen to Ted? But she had complete confidence in him. She must never let herself-think 'about' : fhc' dangers he. faced each time he went away. On the trans-Pacific flight the human element ilidn't Jail.
