Huey Long Methods Repudiated in Election It would bo interesting lo know just how the shade of the late Huey Long received the news of our recent presidential election—if nc\vs of that kind is pf any consequence in the which he has j?one. i ' For if the election (lid nothing else, it at least served notice Unit the •A'niericaVi people want no part of the tilings for v/liich Long stood. Everyone connected with him was repudiated. The idea of strong-arm stuff in American politics took as severe a heating as the most ardent lover of denwcfacy could wish. " • Three principal satellites of the late Kingfish were involved in the election —Father ^oughlin, Pr. Townsend, and thejneffable Gerald L. K. Smith. And i,are they now? Gone lo join adows, nil three;-'washed up on fnch and left lo mqditale on the of over-rating the , stupidity of l tho American public.' Father Coughlin has gone off the air. , Dr. Townsend has a discredited and impotent following on his hands. Sniith has just evaporated. None of these men was precisely an intimate' of Huey Long when the Louisiana senator ,-\vas in power. But -in a general way all of them stood for "the sort of thing lie "srftxl' for—bulldozing demagogerv 'which, d&mamls followers who wiir^givc'/blind obedience.' Their'appeal was to emotion rather than to reason. Tbeir long suit was making impossible promises ami arousing haired. ; Now anyone who knew anything at all about'American life ought to have, known that this sort of thing couldn't , succeed, here except under the most extraordinary circumstances. If people were completely and lastingly disillusioned, 'discouraged, tired out and hopeless, it might go o\er; otherwise it would not, in the long run, have the chance of the celebrated celluloid dog ,on his trip through the hot place. Lbng ros'e to poNvcr at a lime when discouragement and disillusionment were widespread. His imitators, clerical and otherwise, mado the mistake of assuming that the discouragement and disillusionment werb permanent. They were wrong, and they have gone into limbo. And this all leads us to the interesting question: Did not Our political writers over-rale this man Long, even' before his death? He looked strong and W future looked bright, in those days. But his strength did not reside In himself; it was drawn from the depression. He had to have a Weary, hopeless, and generally iired-oul populace to build a following. Just as he died, the pop- uiiitie wan recovering its strength and Us spirits. ' All this is worlh going into, for Hie reason that the voters' recent rebuke lo demagog's was the most encouraging development of tho whole campaign, i The people have served notice, most emphatically, that it takes .more than an itch for pdivfcr, a stout voice, and a heart 'full of haired to succeed in this country. SIDE GLANCES; By George Clark Dental Psychology Few businesses, probably, encounter as much sales resistance as' the profession of dentistry. It is almost as" , oasy to sell a refrigerator to 'an'. Eskimo as to-, lure certain patients v.who need dental attention to a deu- tist'.s office. Now comes Dr. Louis R. Hill, Los Angeles dentist-lecturer, with some suggestions to his fellow professionals. Addressing 800 colleagues . in' Cleveland,' lie advised, among other things, -that they abandon the words extract" and "grind" as fear-inspiring, and substitute "remove" and "smooth." Also, that each of them should practice smiling before a mirror. A smile; Dr. Hill believes, helps (Juicl ij: patient's aliirm, This,'''of, may • be all to the good.

'NOW co ox WITH TUT-: STOHY i CHAPTER VIII "TONY STELLICCI was not the sort of young man to suiter inaction when a job needed doing, but, following the holdup of the Cog Wagon, an entire day passed without his even forming n plan for tackling the task that faced him. Tbny*s working hours were from 10 at night lo 6 in the morning; he then slept until I or 2, and divided the afternoons and evenings belween his 'invalid father an'ct his own simple pleas- brother's garage. But Carlo was not there, Tony learned when lie inquired of his brother's two employes, who were working haphazardly on a disabled ear. i Starl|ng back toward the village, Tony decided not to lot another day pass without acting; he would look for Carlo at his home. He had;never visited there—nor had.Dolly, Jiis sister-in-law, ever liis uncertain and secret way. A trifle grimly, Ma'rcia inquired by,, telephone, concerning (lie schedule of planes to New York. Onn was leaving within the hour. She did not bother to telegraph the servants at home. Packing her bag, she went down to the desk. .There she received her bill and went to the cashier's window, where several persons waited to pay while a wamail at visited him or his father—but hejihe head of the line caustically I3nt he passed tiic day alone in vain. Ho made only one positive step, and that was fruitless: lie telephoned the service station and garage tvhich Carlo, his brother, conducted on Ihc road between Bobbs Neck and Stony Point. But Carlo was , Cavlo. '-V;K -tlie one entirely-ftih- satisfactory element in Tony's life. ', Having abandoned the ways of industry and filial devotion which characterized his younger brother's existence, Carlo had long since left honie and married, and -Somehow earned a living in various ways, his latest arid most ambitious venture being the .garage, where, Tony suspected, (he gasoline was watered and other service and repairs were of a comparable nature. * * * : QN the second day 'following the robbery—the day when a disappointed Marcia Canfleld was preparing to return from Chicago to her home —Tony 'awakened shortly after rioon, again gave an excuse to his father, and Walked knew the house, a shore walk from the garage, and within a few minutes.he had reached it. The doorbell'brought no response... ; . Tony, stood oh the porch, considering. He had an imperative reason for wanting to talk with Carlo, a reason which must forever be kept from their father. He pressed the bell button again; no one answered. There was a window on Ihc porch, and Tony, with a quick look around, tested it. It was unlocked. In a moment 1 he was inside the house. An hour passed before he emerged. It was an hour during which— even though ho had come here expressly to see his';brother—he listened nervously for the return of Carlo or Dolly; an hour during which he searched assiduously, and might have searched in vain had hot an incident ot Carlo's boyhood been brought to mind. In the basenicnt was an old- fashioned trunk, unlocked and full of odds and ^cnds. In the, tray were souvenirs, papers, a miscellany of rubbish. Lifting it out Tony removed the .burden ant turned the tray over'. Pasted to the under side with strips of adhesive paper .were several objects Tony tore them off. A few rings, a couple o: watches,'a small roll of bills. Just so had Carlo, as n child once concealed some money stolen from his; molher's purse, and ii Ihe same" old trunk! For. some' reason which' Ton? could riot define, tears came "to hi eyes at the rnemory. Tears whicl he impatiently, angrily i dasho away as he thrust the stuff in hi pocket, as he replaced the fray and ils contents, closed the trun! and fled the house. Home again, he. managed t read a while :to his father and t pretend cheerfulness. 1 — "• ' ~ ^~ , Mai .. .

Th shock 'o£ meeting John Wadde had been sufficient, her reason ii the few snow-covered miles to his |sisted, lo send Frank forward'o allenged the validity of items arged to her. Although, Ihc hers in the.line were impatient, c rrian> ahead of Marcia was xilly putting the lime to use; he ad opened a leather notebook id was industriously sketching a artlirig if somewhat exaggerated seness of the angry woman. Marcia, fascinated by the. quick rokcs with which he reproduced e woman and her temper, atched unashamed over his loulder. She did not know that e could have guessed her beha-^ ^ or until, without turning, ho in- uifed courteously: "Do you like it?" <f * <* i- jTARCrA laughed. . "It isn't flattering, but it is ccufalo," she admilled. Bruce MeDougall sketched his ' ghatiire, the scrap of plaid. "At last she's through," he said : the woman subsided and ushed . some money over Ihc ounter. "Now we can all get oing." Marcia thought of the sketch of erseif which lie had presented to er a few hours before. "Aren't you going to give it to ; lie lady?" she asked, Indicating ; he notebook. McDougall grinned. "Only when they're beautiful," ie said, and immediately blushed. '. It was his turn at the cashier's vindow. Finished, he bowed to ilarcia and walked uncertainly away. When she turned from the vindow he had disappeared. She could not know that he had . paused, outside the hotel doors, . and asked himself a question,, ind, having answered with a re- uctant negative, had climbed into a taxicab and become an atom in the traffic. .

'.-(UP)—Mrs. Eva Lane .of this city -has. announced her intention of going to Chicago to file claim to have Streeterville'' of that city turned over, to her as one of the rightful lieirs. "Streeterville" comprises an area .of about 193 acres in Chicago, formerly known as' the "Gold Coast" and now estimated to be valued at about $350,000,000. The claim, Mrs. Lane declares, dates back to 1886 .when ; Capt. George ; Wellington Strceter stranded in his schooner, off the shore of Chicago. Me built a breakwater, and the :sand filled m belween his ship and the break-water and the slicre until the "Gold Coast" was created. - ' - | * "Ma" Strceter, wife of the Captain, died a few years ago.
