Maintaining Prices s The supreme court yesterday 'iip- ' held state laws antheming manufacturers and distributors to contract with retailers for the mumleuauco of cstab- • l , lished -resale prices. The court's ruling, of course, dealt '.'rjvilh the.'constitutionality of such leg- : — islation" rather than with its desirability.,. The latter is a matter for ' the consideration of slate legislatures, which no doubt will find themselves beset with demands for similar laws. We have some doubts as to the \visdom of artificial price- niaii{ten r , ance, but so long as attempts in that direction are undertaken along tho lines of the measures passed upon by the supreme court no great harm can be done. They merely, in effect, pcr- 'mil the manufacturer or distributor of branded products to bind retailers not to sell them below the established resale prices. They do not permit price maintenance agreements among the makers or distributors of supposedly'competing products. So it! one manufacturer takes advantage of -'such* legislation to' pliice an unduly . . high resale price upon his product, the buying public, in most instances, - 'will be able 'to count upon soon Jind- ••• ' ing' an equally satisfactory product available at a reasonable price. ., The public derives no ical benefit from the practice occasionally in- dlilged in of sailing goods -below tost for the sake of a transitory competitive advantage. It is vjer^ touch nn (lie public interest, ho\vqveiy"?liat no Vi fi bavriers be set ,up to prevent the -^.passing on to consumers of savings j-, .-made-possible by improved production '• ' methods. So'long-as "real competition -• • exists jbetween producers there need "be little fear of that and it is to raain- L ; taming such competition that our antimonopoly laws should be strengthen> ( . ed and given vigorous' enforcement', <$ England Adds Her Bit to Gaiety of Nations 'Ihe English have long enjoyed the. indoor sport of looking down their .extensive noses at the quaint goings • on in these crude United States, and remarking that some things are really . done evah so much bettah in London. --' We' do furnish our share of the world's comedy, of course. Occasionally we pop up with a Iluey Long to receive, in green silk pajamas, the skipper of a 'visithit' warship; 'or \v6 send ii Zionehcck to congress, or bring forth a. technocracy pipeckenm, or llnd some other way of provoking condescending mirth abroad.

In spite of its immensely 'serious aspect, the great Wnlley Simpson affair has just the faintest but moat unmistakable flavor of Graustnrk./ It might have been devised by Robert W. Chambers, with music by Sig'muml Roinberg, That it should be happening in England, of all places, is eiioug-li to make a supreme court, justice chuckle. Our 'Entire Duty' President Roosevelt's speech at Buenos Aires was not entirely pleasing to French officialdom, according to dispatches from Paris. The tone of the speech was liked, but various Paris journals commented acidly on the president's "failure" to offer a plan for world peace; and Lo Temps added 1 : "fnlernalional solidarity carries other moral and political obligations, and our American friends would do well to examine their consciences and ask themselves it they have done their entire duty in this respect." Since this is the sort of thing we are going to hear from Europe in greater and greater volume, as the shadow of the next war grows; longer, we might as well start remiiul- ing ourselves, right, now, that we are entitled to form our own conception of what our "entire duty" happens to be. We swalkAved the foreign conception of it in 1017, went to war to save the world for democracy, and got pretty badly disillusioned. Can we be blamed for feeling that our principal'duty is to mind our owiv business and keep ;out of European wars?

NOW <:0 ON WITH Till! STOHY CHAPTER XXIV ~JUK1NG the rcniainder of the ^, week Marcia busied herself vith plans for the Saturday night )arly celebrating Dorothy Os- jorn's chance on the Broadway lage. She decided, with Helen Vifddcll, whose help she had 'en- isted, to deliver the invitations by elephone, and together they made out the list. First, of course, the other mem- jcrs of tho cast of "HaU-Acie in i]den." Then the committees which lad. shared in producing the play, md after that the rest of the mem- id-ship of the Stagecraft Guild. Thus the total Guild membership of nearly 200 was on the list of prospective guests, and, though some would probably he unr.ble :o attend. Mnrcin decided to in- itc no crr.raidcrs, since even Philip Canfield's spacious homo had its limits. Yet, as she and Helen com- mer-cd the tedious task o* telephoning each name on the list, i was not long before Marcia hat made an exception. The name Bradford was, of course, near the top, and Marcia wr,s ; soon talking with Joan. "The party's a grand idea," Joan said enthusiastically, "and I'll bo tickled to death to come. I hope 1 can drag Mike out. You know how he is about parlies. He'll try lo alibi out,of going, as usual . . . Say, Marcia! I could let tho old sourpuss have his way nnd bring Bruce McDougali." on the matter— and the must therefore be> squired by. the artist or be utterly. desolated. McDougall accepted, with more cordiality m his voice than in his heart, and wondered, immediately o£{er replacing the telephone receiver why he had not refused. He did wa » l to go to Marcia Can- •f^°^' He was rea(J y to admit that he was a baby and an diot, but he absolutely did not want to see Marcia In her own home, perhaps with the fiance of whom he had heard. He was not otherwise in communication with the Bradfords during the week, and on Saturday night arrived at their home in a axi, prepared to find Joan alone He was surprised, therefore to be admitted by Mike, dressed not for mmincnt departure on one of his frequent evening assignments, but n all the glory of starched bosom •md dinner coat, surmounted by in expression which combined the finer essences of hatred, despair and anti-social feeling. " Aro , y°" going to the party- after all?" McBougall asked. "After all is right," said Mike mlh extreme feeling. "After all I could do! She gets me on a tiimself, just whining. Why couldn't he give up, he demanded, when ho had to give Up? .Why be a baby?. :'. •; . "Perhaps I'm prejudiced because I'm married to ihe brute," Joan whispered to him when they entered the house, "but even Mike has a sweeter expression than you have tonight. What's biting you?" committee for their show, , she makes me go to see the thingl and now she hauls me out on a parly that bas no more excuse than that the show's been given Next thing I know she'll have mo in one of their plays, in tights, I'll bet you, and a plumed hat. Shes my wife and 1 hate her . Where are you, you double- ng BnAD^ORD,,called 3r.uce " McDougali .immediately. Mike, she said, couldn't take her to th». party—she did not. mention that not yet been questioned crosser? Hero's McDougali." "Hi Bruco," said Joan, comi.. a downstairs with a clatter of heels. "Don'l mind Groucho. He's feeling nasty: Let's get started." "Why, I thought he ... you said . . .,". McDougali began. » t * JJECAUSE of Joan's haste, the three arrived at the party before any other guests, an incident which did riot serve to improve Mike's humor. McDougali was feeling hardly gayer than Mike himself. On their way he had asked himself why. Joan had invited him, since Mike was available as escort. Joan plainly did not .care to be questioned. She had, McDougali decided, only wanted to give him diversion; she felt responsible for him as Mike's friend. The whole affair was so new in McDougall's experience that IIL had no definitions tor.jf. His dc- sire^for,.Marcia, as he "had'come so, earnestly tt> '.desire'.' her, was lic'had' -long ago ''"decided, impossible of fulfillment, and the.fact that he nevertheless.continued;to desire her was/he angrily tolc was waiting for them ' when they came downstairs —Marcia and Helen Waddell, her co-hostess. Marcia and Helen> and a man. "How:nice to see you again," said Joan, in her best parly mati^ nor, as he came forward. "This'is a surprise. Did you come all the way fr,om Chicago just for the party?" ; "No—on business, but I was lucky enough to arrive in time for this, too," he said. It was Marcia who Introduced John Waddell and McDoueall. The artist heard the name, but did not comprehend. No one, in the midst 'v.^.. \| of all the talk, thought to rnentipi) \F I .hat the visitor was Helen's \ cousin. "Of course," thought McDougali '—the man from Chicago! The man whom Marcin flew out to see, when there was trouble of some sort. Well, he dscsn't look troubled, particularly. Looks very fit and confident, and, doggone it, like a very agreeable and thoroughly decent chap. Well, now I've seen him, met him. What did C expect him to be? Something to frighten little children? 1 ' He recalled the bit of gossip he had overheard as he watched a rehearsal. "How silly of Mareia," Dorothy Osborn had said, "to fly after him." And the other woman had replied, "A woman does some funny tilings when she's in ° love with a man." From Dorothy, "1 think I could give him up, under the circumstances." And from the other woman, "Marcia's different, I suppose." ' •'• Other guests had been Arriving, and McDougali, separated 'from the Bradfords, had been edged back toward the door to a still- deserted room, Philip Canfield's billiard room. There John Waddell approached him. "Do you play?" the Chicagoah asked, nodding toward the lighted table. ; •McDougali brightened; the. game was-his favorite, for many weeks neglected. - : ' "Yes. Do you?," 1 ' 1 " '" \ "My pal!" said '"John. -' "Let's leave the silliment and enjoy the true gentlemen's .pastime.^ - Togetherithey entered the room, (To Be Continued) ix-SheriH's Bondsmen Liable for $53,000 UTTLE ROCK.— The Arkansas Supreme ',c6iirjt;. held imconstitu- liohal Moiuiay an act passed by he 1033 legislature! relieving former 'Sheriff' and''Collector John C.
