New York, March 17.—The various aspects of the agitation, against chain stores in the South and other sections of the country drew comment from local' retail executives during the week,, chiefly to the effect that the results of the anti-chain campaign' are likely to he nil. The situation in the main was held to reflect one phase of a readjustment in distribution thatj can eventually be affected but little one way or the other by propaganda efforts. The consumer, the general conclusion was, will determine whether the chains are to stay in business, side by side with the alert independent merchant who is doing a good job. i Among the weapons which are being wielded against the chain is legislative action. During the last few days, -for example, the. legislature of Texas has voted a levy on chain store .'• sales, and similar: action, it Is understood, was taken by another state in the recent past: Retail executives here", with department and independent store affiliations, see.' these efforts likely to be upset by the courts on the ground that they are- "discriminatory, class legislation:" They pointed out that -judicial" decisions to this effect have been made in a number of instances in other states. These retail executives are of the opinion that the chains have little to fear from legislative action of this type, either now or in the future. ' It was the opinion of the retail executives seen'that there is a place, in retail merchandising for the independent, the chain, the department store, mail order house and house-to-house canvassing. No form x>f distribution has a "god-given >right" to serve the consumer,! it .was contended. Efficiency, the right goods at the right price and satisfaction t'o the consumer were held the test whereby any form of distribution stands or falls'. • Wednesday Afternoon If You Missed the Tuesday Session You Will Certainly Want to Be on Hand Wednesday afternoon.

FEARFUL OF FUTURE Washington 1 , March 18.—-"With the approach of the open season for political campaigning many senators and representatives are becoming., nervous in contemplation oj unusually active contests, for seats they now hold. Not that most of them desire congress to adjourn soon, so that they may return to their constituencies to prepare for the struggle, for most of the party primaries will not be held until August and September. But the situation in congress is such that those who are to be candidates for renomina- tion see no opportunity for pressing for the passage of legislation In which their districts ark interested and which presumably would, help them if the-"means were afforded of at least telling why it should be enacted. A ban on the passage of bills other than those providing for the support of the government during the coming fiscal year has brought the fast-working house Virtually to a standstill. President Hoover has given a warning about extravagance which is serving as a bar to the passage of bills for the expenditure of public money other-than annual supply measures. So the • house Republican leadership is keeping its forces marking time pending the leisurely senate's, disposition of the tariff bill. Although there seems to be no great interest among congressmen over the proceedings of the London armament conference, it is: conceded that its outcome made have a material fffect on tfce coming elections for congress. A. failure of the conference would not in itself seriously damage the prestige of President Hoover, according to political opinion here, were the political situations, I at complicated by other coo itdera- tions. There was a time, at the outset of the London conference,, when it was being freely said by politicians that if it accomplished-the purposes which President Hoover had in mind in urging it, such an outcome would so work to president's benefit that result . in impressive .curtailment of 'big fleets,- an accomplishment of that kind might not: outweigh dissatisfaction over problems, of more Immediate domestic concern which touch the pocketbooks and the personal habits- of the people. Uneasiness over the political situation especially marked among those dry congressmen of both major parties who hold their seats by slender margins. According to what is being said in congressional circles, they fear that' ambitious young rivals who see no way of getting into con-1 gress except by espousing the wet cause will seek to gain the nominations,, hoping that a change in popular sentiment will give them voting'streugth. The same situation applies to contests for election between candidates of opposite parties in districts where the drys won in 1.928 by narrow margins. Where 'these contests are to be between wets party and drys of another, they will be waged with an intensity certain to bring the prohibition issue sharply to the front. Among observing Republican workers the feeling exists that as many as seven Democrats will be elected to seats now held by Republican senators, but that perhaps as many as four Republicans will succeed Democratic senators. This would leave Democratic net gain of three in a .body which, while it is nominally Republican, has been, controlled throughout 'most of the tariff controversy, in spite of a substantial Republican majority, by a combination of .Democrats and independent and insurgent Republicans.; Forty-two of the forty r eight KEMPTON SPELLING BEE.

Where did the word "ragtime" conic from? As many of us will probably surmise, the word "ragtime" is an out-and-out Americanism". No extended, explanation is necessary to any of us with just the fairest kind of a memory. "Alexander's "Ragtime Band," "You're a Grand Old Flag, "The Yankee Poodle Boy" and a host of others will refresh anybody's recollection that needs refreshing. . A reader, however, writes -us, inquiring why this sort of music was called ragtime. The answer which w'e are compelled to make is praetically an affirmation of the obvious. That is, "ragtime"' is derived from "rag" or "ragged"— indicating, the syncopated rhythm of this more or less ephemeral music.
