Joblessness Remedy If we want to see a boom such as \\e have nevei seen beloie, we have only to set our indubtual plant to woik to ma^ke up tlic production deficiencies of the seven ycai.s of dopios- sion This is on the woid ot the canny Dr llaiold G Monlton, piesident of the Biookings Institution Dr Moulton told the Executive Club in Chicago the other day that to make up foi the deficiency in cluuiblc goods alone, upwards of 8,000,000 additional workers 'would'be kept busy foi at leabt five veais Ncruly 1,000,000 more would be iciiuiral for a .similar period to make up tlie deficiency in non-durable goodb. Dr. Moulton has a way of knowing what he is talking about. It begins to look, too, as if we were in the kind of business upswing in which these deficiencies in production would be made up. Adding those two lacts, we inn, look ahead confidently to a period in which the uneniploy'ment problem will be reduced to minor pioportioiib—if, indeed, it is not wiped out. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark] 'Cfomge For Belk Signs that businebs is on the upswing 'in\the United States are coming thick and fast these days. p One of the latest is revealed by^ Edwin H. Dressel, superintendent of Ihc Philadelphia mint. He points out that the value of United States coins struck in this mint up to Dec. 1 -was $28,- 92GI787—moie than twice the previous high value in any one year. During the depression year of 1932, Mr. Dressel said further, "we shipped for circulation just §30 in coins. Now they are ordered as fast as, we can pio- duce'thbm." Nature of the coinage indicates a great improvcmenV in business, he maintains, production of nickels, and pennies having' dropped in favor of larger pieces. Waitresses, porters, and other tip- receivers \\lio have been nickeled to distraction during hard times will be especially cheered by this news. You Never Can Tell The common conception of a male librarian is an inoffensive, studious man. Yet that was said to be the onetime occupation of the snarling tough who was captured in a New York gun battle, and was called "The tofigh- cst criminal I've ever seen" by none other than J. Edgar Hoover, boss of G-men. A .survey just completed in Baltimore reveals Hint the typical em- bciiilcr is honest (until he goes bad), a good mixer, a good family man, and • a person tlelinitply not of the criminal type. All of which is just more conclusive evidence that appearances are deceptive, and that it is wise not to entrust the family savings with a stranger just because he has such a frank, open face. &r^^$?$&$'li^ "fe^ OUR BOARDING HOUSE With Mzjot Hoople :-'fj: * * • £LU LCJ ra-f |! r ^A^«W "Now, aicn't you giad I wcuf ahiad and put up those pickled peaches?

For tlie first time the place took on an air of Christmas festivity, with the sound of gay voices and young people in holiday dress moving about the big rooms. The older brothers and ' Tanto Josephine did not join the parly at dinner, anrl Bobv could not help but think this was one reason for its success. .'Pearl. John had • lent Bob evening clolhes. Bob was soon enjoying himself thoroughly. Espc- eially since Betty was his dinner partner. Ramon Vasquez had the chair next lo her on the other side and Ramon T s dark eyes showed his interest, as lie complimented Betty on her becoming white gown. This did not pass unnoticed by Angelique, directly opposite him. Her flame-colored gown, cut on daring lines, showed her rounded figure lo advantage, and, though she flirled and laughed with tlie men who sat beside her, she did not miss the attentions Hamon showered on Betty. "Hey, nro you trying lo sleal my girl?" Bob Finally challenged him wilh a laugh. "Ramon has ;i way with women, 15ol>," Angcliquc told him. "He puts Ihc evil eye on them and Ihen it's jusl loo bad. Now me— I fell head over heels in love with him tlie first time I saw him, and sec how he turns to the nexl prclly girl he meets!" She shrugged her shoulders expressively, and her red lips smiled, but Bob noliccd lhat there -was no smile in her eyes. The thought flashed through his mind that here was a woman who might be dangerous. Belly changed the subject "I can sec how you arc able lo manage old Tante," Bob lold her. "a'moment later. "What's become o£-the rest of Ihe family?" ''Tanlc is having dinner in her room, and I don't know about (he others," she answered. "Pearl John s.cems to have managed ralhcr well for once, hasn'l he?" "Hera 1 tlarl out to.sell lircs, mul instead 1 find nii)scl/ ifanci'rig ivflJi iioii I'M o lioase l/wl * a l <J»cer as they ma/;c f/icm," Cob told Belly. "I feel as though" at any minute | I'd roll out of bed and wake up," lie told her, as they circled in -a slow waltz. "Hero I slart out to fight snow all Christmas Day in order to sell rtn order of tires, and instead I find myself up here on this mesa, dancing with you in a house that's as queer, as they make "cm." "I've had tlie same impression," Jho answered—as though all tins v.'crc something lhat couldn t actually happen. "But you seem real enough." Hamon Vasquez claimed Betty for his partner and put an end to the conversation.

Tlie ol< ady perched lighlly on its edge steadying herself wilh her gold leaded cane. The two brollier stood, looking oil with cold, dis approving glances. T1' was not long before Uicir'Kos- liie presence began lo make itself felt. One by one, Ihc dancers drifted inlo olhcr rooms on one prclexl or another, and cvcirthc musicians, who had been swaying Kayly lo their own music, slumped inlo slolid in'.passivcncss. "Interesting, isn'" asked the professor again. "The . effect of sonic personalities is almost hypnotic, you notice. Like an evil deed lhal casts its shadow before it." "Oh, I guess not as bad as ull lhal, Professor Shaw." Bob arose. "I think I'll see what I can do to help Pearl John out for a while. The party does seem to be slowing up." ' '; ' He enlisted the aid of Ramon, Angcliquc, and Betty, and for an- olhcr hour.they all worked h'ard lo help Pearl John bring the party back tq a semblance U its former aiciy. The doors "of a small ad- oining room were thrown open ncl there stood a beautiful Christmas tree, twinkling wilh light-vils ranches-bending under packages n gay wrappings. There were gifts for everyone, nd-when they were_opened ;Bob'. vas_ astonished at-the amount of ime and money Peart 'John" must ave spent on them. The stir of xcilement and pleasure over -the ifts, however, could not counter- ct the icy effect of the attitude f the older members of. the fam- ly. Soon the young people be^an o think about getting down from lie mesa, most ot them using the torm as an leave. The last automobile.load of de- iDrting guests had begun weaving ts way through the blanket of. now, and Bob and Belly still tpod beside Pearl John in the ipen doorway, waving a last fare- veil, when Angeliquo joined them. She and Ramon were to stay until he next day. ."Where is Ramon?" she asked. I want to know what time <hc >lans to leave in the morning. Still snowing, isn't it?" She 'rowned al the falling Hakes. * t 4 •'WE'LL slart 45 early as we can gel away," answered Ramon behind her. "At the rate this is coming down, it won't take'long for the canyon fo .become imp-liable. Well, your party was a grand success, Pearl John, even hough something of a strain I ancy, for your brothers' and "You think the others did have fiood time?" asked Pearl John eagerly. "It look a lot of-persuad- »ng toxgct the .family l o lei rrfc ao this, and if it didn't .go .all right, I should feel sorry."' "It was lovely," Betty told him. And Ramon and I had a grand lime, too," .added Angelique, glancing at Vasquez. "Didn't we, Hamon? We arc bolh awfully glad to know Belly and Bob." "That's right," Ramon answered, "f, for one, shall always remember this .Christmas on Thunder Mesa." . ' "Shouldn't we all go to blow out Ihe candles on the Christmas tree?" suggested Betty. "It's proper to make it a sort of ceremony, you know." At her suggestion, they troupcd back down the hall to the .small room where Ihe lights on the tree were .beginning to gutter. L on g shadows already had taken possession of Ihc room, and the jreenery, hanging from the walls, seemed strangely out of place. "Queer how this old house re- isserls iiself so quickly," thought 3ob, glancing about Ihc room. 'The music and gucsls have teen gone only a few minutes, and here is all the slrangencss of the place again." He dropped back a step beside Belly and .said softly, "We'll 'go 'down with Ramon and Angeliquo in the morning if we can't go any olher way." . She nodded and moved away toward Ramon. Tlie nexl inslant -a,' there was a sharp cry, .and Ramon 1 was motioning the girls to stay \ back. , "What is H?" Pearl John asked, pushing' forward. Then they all saw.
