Value Of Patience Fifty years ;igo u 7-yoar-olil Alabama girl, who lind boon <lc:tf ;ili(l blind from birth, was, taken under the protection and guidance of a young tcaclicr ii'om Boston. Helen Keller was the name of the ad'lictnd girl. Beginning' by tracing in tellers of the alphabet in her pupil's palm, the young teacher accomplished wonders in the years thai followed. Despite an apparently insunmnint- ,able handicap, Ilcleii Keller, at 23, was graduated cum laude 1'roiu college, later to become a famed lecturer and writer. With her illustrious pupil beside her,' Mrs. Anne Sullivan Jlacy, the woman who lisui helped make this possible, passed away the other day. But' the lesson taught by her achieve- ment—thai patience and industry can accomplish near-miracles—will be remembered throughout the world for years to come.

What the other contestants have snll'cral, undergoing new travail without pausing to rest weakened bodies, is another aspect of the "joke," And, if (he rich man had lived, ho might be considering the plight of parents who failed to win I be pri/.c, in supporting their swollen families; or that of children who may owe their lives, lack of education, perhaps rickety bodies, to a lottery of whjch they know nothing. 'Listen, And Like ///' The American radio public is probably arriving at the conclusion that these are limes thai try men's .souls. Let a citixen lime in at almost any hour for music or other light diversion, and almost surely he will be greeted by the stentorian blast of some orafor or other, decrying the works of brain Irusters or economic royalists. .ProbaUy Hie only thing thai keeps the average listener-in from picking at the covers is the fact that be can blot out the voices of the speakers merely by twirling a dial. But if he is aggrieved over this slate of affairs, he might consider a nciw Horn out of StiiUgart, 'Germany. A baker of that city has been deprived of his tradesman's license, and arrested, and will tie tried on ;i charge of sedition, because he turned . o(l' the radio during a speech of Chancellor J tiller. New Pipe Dre:ini Gerald L. !(. Smith, who somehow seems to have the right to put "Reverend" before bis name, has created for himself a gandy new pipe dream. According to his own statement, be is looking for 10,000,000 good and true Americans who will permit him to organize them into a militiml band to protect the United States from an international plot lo collectivize it. Once this outfit jells, Mr. Smith will be ready to take over the direction of American life. k One could grow shocked and indignant over this monstrous scheme if one fell that there were even the remotest • outside -chance that Mr. Smith could ever actually do anylhiiij; of tbe sort. But as things are, about the only answer one need give is the sir! your small sen makes when he is <|iiar- relling with a playmate. You know—stand erect, inflate the chest, stick out the tongue, compress tbe lips, and blow hard. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark ^sm • •• "Well, you wanfa make somethiii"- <>!' il?"

"Howdy, Major Meed," lie said. "How're you feelin'V" The Major recognized him and smiled politely, always anxious to show lliis young man that he held no grudge against him. "Pretty good, Mi\ Howard. Pretty good for an old fellow. And lio\v are you?" "I stay healthy," Jeff told him. "And your family, Major?" "Prelly good, prc!.'.y good," replied the old gentleman, glancing at the headlines to see \viiat politics was up lo. "1 reckon you're a Republican' young fellow, bcin from a mountain co'.mty?" "Yes, sir. But I ahv ..•••: vote as T think best. It's right hoi -! ..^'.hcr we're haviiv. I look tor rain io- night." "Rain? I hope not." The old man anxiously scanned the sl;y. "My'granddaughters arc havin' a hay-ride tonigiit, enclin' up nt Grayson's Ial\e. They've been pre- parin 1 for it two-three days—" Jeff Howard felt vast relief that ?7nte Meed was well again. He felt, too, a slinging resentment lo know slie had been planning a party while ho was in tormented on. He hoped it would pour •am and drench Ihem. He hoped o Heaven it wouldn't— "Good day to you," he said, and drove away. Now that Hie Major's attention lad been called to the weather, he ,'ave it hi.s consideration. Yes, here was rain coming, as sure at 10 lived! He consulted the news- rapcr. The weather man, too, an- icipateci it. "Poor things!" he said passion- itcly, moaning his granddaughters. He went to the porch, removed loose stone from the foundation iml extracted a pint bottle that was hidden there. He uncorked it md drank the nip which renamed. His meditation grew mcl- 'ow and snd. "Poor things!" he said atain. The certainty lhat their hay-ride was doomed to failure seemed suddenly harder to bear than the oss of his money and his home. The Major went lo the barn, hitched Dobbin to the phaeton and rlrove quietly off to town. The sisters were not to see him for hours. , .. haj-vido Prentiss lo talk about—" "Yes?" anxiously. "We've been practically engaged for over a year. Something ought to bo done about it. I've been thinking it over." "Oh, Morgan!" Then caul ion seemed to wall; toward her, (inner on lip. Maybe he was trying to end it! Go slow, Kale. Save your pride . , . "Yes, Morgan?" she said, quietly and attentively. He spoko bluntly, "We could get married any time if you would do iomclhing conclusive about the situation ul home," "At v.hOEC home?" Kale asked blankly. "What situation, Morgan?" "Your family, I mean. They'd bo living on u:; in no time." DATE'S face flamed in the dav!;- ness. Her pride was smarting, yot, because she loved the person who was wounding her, she humbled herself to reason v.-ilh him. "Gran'dad has his Snanish-Amer- ican pension, Morgan.

Kate said wistfully. U was her first allusion lo her party's miserable failure. She wanted Morgan to reassure her. To tell her it wasn't as bad as she thought. "Did you ever know such a mess at last night was?" •"Um-m," he said, lighting a cig- arct and shielding the match. "Those things happen." Kate swallowed.

"You'd scatter us, Morgan. Like or!" Kate sat quietly, not able ;o think very clearly because he Iiad put his arm nround her. Then, "You don't know what you're asking! It would break their hearts. It would crush Gran'dad's pride and spirit and heart. Listen, dear," pleadingly, "we're all he has left to love. No matter how comfortable the home was, he'd eat his heart out for his own roof and his own flesh and blood. You can't uproot old people, Morgan—" ''Sometimes it's necessary," he answered stubbornly.
