Toy Pistols a Menace? The nation-wide ciimpitign to keep. children from pliiyintr with toy pistols, launched recently by the American Congress ol" Parcnl-Tcsicher Associations, lias l)\ilcd to strike a responsive chord in llic breast ol' .IiuiBB Joseph 13. Limlslcy of Spokane, Wash., wlib has liandlcd hundreds of juvenile delinquency cases. The judge fails lo \sce that letting a youngster play with toy guns is in the slightest degree likely to turn him into a bandit when he grows up. "The spirit of adventure is born into boys," says the judge, "They want to read "Daniel lioonc' and other stories of adventure. Then they want toy guns—and, as they grow older, they should have firearms and bo taught to. use them. "A man who is following criminal tendencies doesn't need a gun, il' ho is determined lo commit n crime. Nowadays bandits use a sandbag or a piece of gas pipe as elfeclively as they dp guns." 'There is a good deal of sense in Ihe judge's remarks. The youngster who is going to turn out to bo a bad egg needs something more than a 10- cenl-store pistol to sol his feet in the path oi' crimu. t _ Airships Impractical?' •One thousand .passengers \ -have crossed the Atlantic-, in' ^lic German :dirigiblc Hindcnburg. ; "\yhcn the great ^airship completed its •"•eighth Irnns- Allantic crossing the other dny, it 1 rang up its thousandth paid fare. This bit of news ought to be of especial interest lo those puoplc who, ever since the Akron and Maco'n tragedies, have been insisting Unit lhc big dirigible is an impractical experiment. If dirigibles are impractical, the Germans don't seem to have heard aljotfl it. They are able lo build ships that fly fough assignments right on schedule, carrying pay loads with as little fuss as an ocean liner. It is hard to put down the growing suspicion that onr own back luck with dirigibles must have .been due to our own defects rather than to defects inherent in the dirigible itself. Maybe \ve were a bit hasty, after all, in deciding that the day of the giant sky liner was never going to dawn. Royal Blood Alfonso, Count dc Covudongii, onetime heir apparent to the Spanish throne, lies ill in a New York hospital. To help him back to health and happiness, his mother, the former Queen Victoria Kugcnie of Spain, hurried to his bedside. The other purpose of her maternal mission, according to rumor, is to dissuade her son from marrying another Cuban comii(oncr. The count is ill with haemophilia, the "disease of royally" which prevents blood from clotting. A number of European nobles, afl'licled with this ailmer.i., 'have bled to death from slight bruises or scratches, Tim count is reported to be recovering, thanks to a series of blood transfusions. The blood was supplied by professional- Now York donors. Thus a royal mother has come lo America to keep common hlood from mingling with that of a Bourbon—ycl that inixture has saved her son's life!

Dickie's welfare was in her mind before all else. Twice a week she attended the lecture course, and Mrs. Walls was n frequent visitor at the lillle house on the sands. Ted returned from the Pacific flight one day to find Kay wailing alone for him al the landing place. After his initial embrace he asked, "Where is Dickie?" Kay shook her head. "According to Ihe book he is too excilablc and I Ihought he'd better stay al home." "The book?" Ted eyed her askance. "What on earth are you talking aboul?" "Oh!" she sajd, "(lie book I'm slmlying on child Iraining." Ted laughed. "What does the book know about Dickie?" "Everything! Ted, I'm worried about him. Yesterday,'atlcr all my training the pasl few weeks, he came running home and said, 'I jnsl met my brother at flic airport. He wants me to go hunt tigers with him.'" Ted laughed. "Did you let him go?" "No. He said he'd rather slay home with me." "I suspect," Ted told her, "that your friend, Mrs. Walls, has been giving you ideas. Her five children—" "I haven't seen them, hut she says they're model children." Ted snorted. "Everybody in the airport colony knows Uiosc children are litlle terrors! We've had lo chase the boys away from the airport a dozen limes and the fruant officers picked them up in Oakland once." "Ted—really?" "Pnrhaps," Ted suggested, "he on)y*needs a little of the discipline we require ol our crews on the trans-Pacific flight. I"U gj v e him a lecture and If that doesn't work I'll have to punish him—" "Oh, Ted, no!" Kay's hand flew to her throat. TJUT Ted did give Dickie a stern lecture. After dinner lie went to the airport to work on the gy- ropilot. Kay knew he wouldn't he home until late, and she tried to settle down to read. After hall an hour, however, she threw down the book in disgust. Dickie looked up from the model airplane ho had been playing with, "I don't like books either," he announced. "Come on, let's play." Kay drew him to his feet. "I'll tell you what," she said. "Lei's slip off and see a movie." Dickie clapped his hands. "Okay!" ; Ted came home early and found the house deserted. Since he was tired, he went-to bed at once. In the morning he confided something to Kay that banished all thought of her own trials. Ted had come home from his flight over the Pacific to find that his private office had been ransacked. Papers had been tossed about and several were missing. Someone evidently was trying lo learn the secrets of the gyropilot. Luckily, he had taken the ma- rfiine on the trip with him and Ihe papers whicli the intruders had taken would shed no light on the design. Kay asked, "But, Ted, who could want the secrets?" "A palcnt thief, perhaps. A rival plane designer—possibly on agent for some foreign power—" "Then you may be in danger! They might—" He silenced her fears. "The secrets are in my head," he told her. "They wouldn't try to do anything to me. I'll just have to bo more careful from how on. I've taken no one into my confidence but you—and Monte Blaine." "You can count on Monte," Kay said. "He may be reckless, but I'm sure he's honest and a true friend," * * : * I . . CHE was still disturbed, but, with Ted insisting heir'worries were groundless, she managed to put them in the back of her mind. And, as the days passed, she jj more at ease about Dickie. Whel slie learned that Mrs. Watts' chil dr*cn were really as badly behave! as Ted had said, she threw til child psychology books into di| card. But the real blow for Kay can when she learned Ted was to 1 away from home on Christmal He sent a radiogram from ManilJ but she had looted forward long to this first -Christmas will him and Dickie that she \vj| keenly disappointed. She gave a Christmas dimid for some of their friends. Dorl came with Ralph Bangs and thef had a quarrel even before tlJ turkey appeared. Monte Blairl was there and sat in Ted's plocf at the table. Dickie and Jerri Searlcs completed the party. Dickie ate so much that so his eyes rei^d to stay open an] he was carried off to bed. "Poor old Ted!" Jerry Scarll lamented. "This is the first Chris! mas I've spent without him years!
