Unfilled tonnage on the steel com|£ panics' books is reported to bo the £? highest today since 1929. The 'coim- ~ '' try's/railroads, for example, now have £ placed orders for 900,000 tons of steel 2 „ - rails and 270,000 tons of track ac- ^j ' cessories. This will contribute largely ^' to 'support steel production through •3 "the first quarter of 1937. Jj , ' The significance of this is not nierc- **. Jy'thtf fact that the steel industry is .« booming, but that, when steel is boom^- ing, other lines^are prospering, too. ItJ 'According to all indications, 1937 I* aught to be a year of real prosperity. »>* ft f- Names and Ages . - In its recent feveribli weeks, the Social Security Board at Washington has had a lot of trouble learning liow old citi/ens really are, Countless workmen have been giving false ages, fearful that revelation of the truth ^vill^cost them their jobs.

But to the Security Board, which is not in the florist busi- " ness, na'mes seem to spell a lot of grief. Mayh e He's Right When that "modern Noah" of Olympia, Wash., built himself an aik and predicted that the wild would ; ccme to an end in '1932, a lot of people snickered. For some reason the catastrophe failed to come off, but •this didn't daunt the prophetic gentleman. He is just as convinced now, that the deluge is due in 1938. This should be the signal for a thundering burst of hilarity ' from coast to coast, but somehow it has failed to show up. This, of course, might be, indifference; or could it be that so many "unhappenable" things have happened thai people are beginning to wonder if he is right? Schmcling's conquest of Louis, for instance; the defeat of Minnesota by Northwestern, that overwhelming Roosevelt landslide—and, topping it all —King Edward's surrender of a British crown for an American divorcee.

Imagine yourself in a great salon—and tell nit what it looks like." Marcia smiled. Helen had invited Marcin to'bo a partner in Ihe enterprise, but a little figuring had convinced her, as Marcia wisely • suggested, that Its scope was more likely lo be a one-woman proposition. Marcia had agreed, 'however, to help in Hie planning. " '• $. c e 'TWERE was ;no ghost of him within these walls, no echo of his voice or hers from the oldei days.

She knew what :t was It was the feelina of a planned future. She felt restless. Helen was restless too, but was finding an outlet for energy in this prosaic, yet exciting; and ambitious, business venture. Helen had diagnosed her own restlessness as caused by her failure to have a definite, -cvery-day job in the working world. •> ' ' - • Marcia knew that siie herself could not use this sonic escape. She was hot, she felt sure, a career woman. Then was her life useless, was she only, in .fact, a parasite? -Did her village- charities, her efforts to be a good neighbor, a good iriend' a good citizen, succeed oi- fail j n offsetting ' the fact Ihat she did not toil or spin earn or 'create?. . It was too complex a subject for a clear answer. Ona might go into all the pros and cons of a woman getting a job who did not need a job; into all the evidence for and against a woman seeking a career when, as in 'March's case, she rec- osmzecl no special talent in herself, and still not find Ihe solution . . V * * ^ELL, at least she had identified the source of her restlessness. It was the feeling of bens without an objective. But _ it ot her nowhere.

Dorothy's proffer of frlcnd- ihip. All this hnd filled the weeks Now nothing appeared ahead except the dull routine of village life in late winter. She looked fore- ward to boredom, a void througl which she would grope for a purpose. Could she find it—not ar invented one, but a real one, th< real one, which she did not ye know, • but would recognize th<_ instant she saw it? She was look- ins for Ihat niche of endeavo' which is essential to everv life, a niche that often cannot he at tamed, but, oncp i cached, pro vides its own rewards to the finder.

"How is your father?" asked Marcia. "I haven't been able to go around with the nurse for so ong." ' ' "He's not very well," said Tony. 'But at least he—he never found oul about Carlo. And the police never found out about any. of the others; I was talking with ihe scr- :eant only last :iight." "And I," said Marcia to hcrsell," have been complaining!.' 1 "Miss Canfield," Tony: said, "we —my family—have caused you a lot of Irouble. Would you mind my asking one more favor, for my father?" "Nol at all, Tony." "You know, Carlo never came to see him much, but the old man asks about him once in n while just the same. The landlady and I warn everybody who comes (o visit him not to let on about what happened to Carlo, of course. I told him Carlo had had to go out to Chicago on a job, and didn't have HMD to say goodby. It was the best I could think up. But he will think il' ; -. funny if he never hears from him at all any more. He's a pretty sick man—he may not live very long. I .wondered if you could help me send some letters to him like they were from Carlo?" : "Why, surely, Tony!" "I'll write Ihem, see? And I'll address them lo (lie old man himself, right at home. He doesn't read much English, but he can tell a post mark, and it would please him to have the letters conic, even if I had to read them to him. But I need .someone to mail them in Chicago.
