Few 'of Mr. Snath's one-time admirers will follow him in his desertion of his party. It is too plain what his trouble is. De-suite the fact that his s candidacy met disastrous defeat in 1028—a (defeat (hat would have been even more overwhelming had not a sense of party loyalty kept hundreds of thousands of reluctant Democrats in line—ho never permitted himself lo become reconciled to loss of the parly's leadership. He accepted the nomination of President Roosevelt in 1932 with poor grace and has plainly shown ever since that he harbored a • grudge against the man 'who supplanted him. It is just as well, though of no great importance, that he has come out into the open. Lesson In Citizenship That too many cilixens, on ole'cli'oii days, fail to-show up at thu booths is an old, old story. And the excuses Ihey give— that they arose too late, that "a vole one way or the other won't affect the outcome," and so on —are just as antique, To people who 'don't think enough of their franchise to exercise it, a little incident that occurred in Detroit during the Michigan primary, should he at least thought-provoking. Relatives 'Of'a' Detroit man came lo an election booth and asked for an absentee ballot. They explained that the man wanted to vote, but that he had been hurt in an auto accident, and was in bod. They were loo late to got an absentee ballot, however, and they turned away;, disappointed. A little later they came back with the patient liiiu- seJf. ; ' Jfc had one arm in a cast, his head was heavily bandaged, and he could barely hobble; but he had insisted on coming out lo cast his vote. The man, incLdcnlally, was foreign-born. The very idea of one humnn being trudging nlouu us n bcn;t of burden dragging aiiuibcr who site under shade In. a comfortable scat.

"Go into the cock- pH," she ordered, iind Ted and the navigalioa officer moved backward, followed by Kay. lllah branclis-icd the automatic .MI ihe radio otTiccr's face. She gave a call number. "Gel in contact with lhal station immediately," she said. "It's a pearling schooner, anchored at Wake 's- land." The radio officer sat down am! tapped out the call on the sending set. Alter a moment lie said ; "They don't answer." "You lie!" The radio ofliccr protested. "Bui I tell yon Ihey don'l answer. Since you know Hie posilion of. Ihc ship though, I can broadcast the message on the wave-length. They'l Sel It." lllah smiled. "That is good That is \| v .e. Send the message al once." When he had finish3d, .Illal shrugged her shoulders. "I die, silo said, "knowing my work is well dune. I am a mystic. I am not afraid." Slowly she gathered her white veils about her and walked back inlo the passenger compartment. fPED returned lo Ihe chart rcora and senl Kay inlo the passenger compartment lo reassure the women. The storm had nol nbahd. at Midway and Ted look t in with a glance. ."YOUR SIGNALS HAVE FADED OUT. COURSE? ARK YOU HONOLU&U SAYS YOU • ARE LOST. WHAT'S WRONG WITJI RADIO COMPASS? STOlAl FADING OVER SLAND. VISIBILITY IMPROVING," Ted's eyes shone'with renewed :iope. He went to the radio officer lor a new report.' "The messages ore coming in stronger," the officer said. "We can't be far from Midway." "If we can only find the lagoon on the island," Ted said hopefully. 'We car.'t come down in the open sea with waves piling 30 feet high over ih-5 rfcfs." Then ia cnme b.ifk to Kny. He called, htf into Ilia crew compartment where they could be alone. "Kay," ha said, "I simply want you to knor/ that I trust you, and liave -always trusted you.

"Oh, Tedl Nothing can happen!" * * > WHEM Ted had gone back to his post he found another message from Midway: "NO SIGNALS FOR LAST HOUR. ARE YOU LOST OVER OCEAN? TRY TO SIGNAL BATTLESHIP U. S. S. MISSISSIPPI LATITUDE 19 DEGREES 15 MINUTES NORTH AND LONGITUDE 107 DEGREES 30 MINUTES EAST." "The messages are coming in strong now," the radio officer said. "We can T l be more than a hundred miies away from Midway. I'm trying lo reach the Mississippi." ^ "But we can't do much circling,' Ted said anxiously. "We've got to locale the island without a direction finder now." He and the navigation officer took up their positions on the bridge. . Tile latter looked at the instruments and then said, "This is one time the human clement will have lo lake the .place of the machine. It's your ship, Ted. I ask you to try lo bring us in. One man will have to take Ihc responsibility, and it's yours." No sooner had Ted taken the controls that the radio officer came with another message. Ted opened the throttles of-the four 800-horsc- power engines and ordertd"uie,eri- ginecr to change''the pronellei pilch. They were steadily increasing speed. ' '" ' He scanned the message. "NO Ted barked orders now. "Get llio Midway Station and triangu-! lale. Find our posilion and we'll ride the beam in." * * * rpHE crew was jubilant." The' navigation officer was al work, finding his position on the improvised "beam." It was not as accurate as the direction finder, but il might work in Ihis emergency. Tlic navigation officer "localed" ibe Mariner, in short order. She was (lying in a tangent toward the island, and they were almost overhead! Ted's uncanny navigation had oroughl Ihem straight to Ihe is- and. He had felt his way through .. the storm! ; / Bui when lie went down to 500) /eel again lie found the ceiling low and (ootc the ship back out to sea. He glanced at the fuel tank and made a decision to waii. A message came through. "NO SIGNALS, CUT YOU HAVE CIRCLED TWICE OVERHEAD AND GONE BACK TO SEA. IS FUEL HOLDING OUT? LIGHTS AND FLAMES ON LAGOON. CAN YOU COME IN? CEILING LIFTING." Ted kept his face sternly lo Ihe task. There was,no use laking a chance when Ihey were so close to safety. He came down to 300 feet above the surface and asked for his posilion on tiic Wangle. Tiie ceiling was still too low. But suddenly his face was set in a grim expression and lie decided lo ride Ihe improvised "beam" in. Tiny beads of perspiration popped out on his forehead. His eyes were glued to the instruments. Two hundred feet! One hundred and eighly feel. One hundred and fifty feel! Suddenly, before the eyes of every crew member and passenger, ihere burst forth the glare of searchlights and flares over Iho blacfc lagoon. Ted's eyes s-.vopt Ihe black fronds of Ihc palms ns he leveled off, and brought Ihe ship down in calm, familiar walers. Midway Island!
