Jobs More Important Than 'Isms' In u way, the war abroad has shifted emphasis awtiy from solution of tins country's main problem- You citn scarcely blame politicians for jumping on Nazis and Fascists and Communists and Silver Shirts and liundsmon ami White Camellias and Christian FroiU- ist.s. They make easy targets. And they do offer n distraction, for a linn: at least, from the main problem at hand—unemployment. The "isms" in this country aren't so important—or at least, they shouldn't be. Isms don't generate where men arc busy working. They're simply the manifestations of the principal weakness— the symptoms of the cancer. Provide jobs for all employables, and yon won't over need. to worry seriously about isms. Lunatic schemes don't appeal to men who gel pay checks every week and who can feel reasonably assured that they will eat next week and the week 'after. At a meeting of the Society of Automotive IJnjjineers in Detroit a few days ago, William L. Ball, chairman of the Business Advisory Council of the Department of Commerce, said: "1 am not nearly as much concerned with the menace of the 'isms' as with the certain reactions of the men out of work. Because it is our number one danger, .it is our number one job." Mr. Batt is fully aware of the problem. He suggested that business men and engineers concentrate' on developing new means of guaranteeing "regu- laraation of employment." Not only must new men be put on jobs, but the old "workers must be-assured of continued employment. Planned production and purchasing was recommended as one way in which industrialist:! might keep their output at an even keel- Recent estimates have placed the unemployment figure at 0,500,000. Jlen without jobs become disgruntled after a time. Those who still have work become uneasy, aware of the competition in the labor field and of their own precarious positions. Only if this situation is allowed to continue too long will isms become an active menace. City, county, state, and federal officials have wrestled with the enigma for 10 years. They have instituted many plans lo overcome unemployment. They have watched the business curve slide downward and then turn and light its way slowly toward the top again. They have watched industry restore its production to pro-depression levels. And they have been discouraged lo discover that jobless workers were still almost as abundant as they were in the blacker days of the thirties. Officials can hardly be blamed for turning their attention away from this fundamental economic problem and organizing instead tin offensive against the isms. Here, at least, they are on safe ground. Here they can lake a definite position with a minimum ol criticism. But when the ism limit grows cold, they will have to turn back again to unemployment. Somewhere there's an answer if it can only be found. They may as well get busy once more on (his dilemma, and the isms will take care of themselves. SIDE GLANCES by GalbraKh e Nice Lo l.Jte Censm-'Idher When That Man (or woman) comes to your door and begins asking a lot of questions, you'd better answer them. That is, If you want to nlay out of jail. You may feel that he's a little nosey, bulling into your affairs and wanting to know a lot of silly things, but that's the job of the census-taker—finding out how Americans live. If you don't answer his questions, you may be fined $100 or sent lo jail for 60 days. If you give him intentionally incorrect information, the ante may be raised to $500 or one year in the jug. Business men who refuse to submit reports for their linns may bcr fined tfoOO or sentenced to 00 days; and, it" they give inaccurate information, the fine may be $10,000 or the sentence, one year. Even though the questions may not make much sense to you, Ihc government will probably collect a lot of valuable information. Uncle Sam isn't worried about people getting defiant. Only ijarely, during the past 150 years, has it been necessary lo bring charges. Census-takers will probably find, again, that most people are willing to, co-operate. A. Rose by Any Other Name— California's .Hum and Jiggers haw quit mumbling about their election defeat and are picking among the wreckage of their pension scheme to salvage what they can. In the first place, they've dropped ?10 a week from their plan and they've changed the slogan. It, won't be "?30- Every-Thursday," b u I "?20 N o w." Short and snappy. City, county and slalc taxes have been clipped out in favor of a general 3 per cent gross income tax. And the new plan makes certain labor's right to strike, a provision that was dubious in the original proposal. The whole thing sounds like a revival of an old flop with another title to lure the customers. In Arizona, «'combination of the Townscml and Hamami-Eggs plans has sprung up with a ?(iO monthly pension provision for persons over GO. From lime to lime, we may expect new schemes, sprouting almost anywhere in the country. The song- is ended, but the .memory lingers on. COPR. IMOgVKf* SERVICE, we. f. M. Kit. U.

CHAPTER XXV drew back with new- J - found strength. "Vincent, you're playing the part of a (ugilive. You'll be h'jnled down, perhaps killed. I'm willing to wait for you. You can't escape. You owe it (o yourself to slay! You owe it (o mo!" He turned and there was something In his face she had never seen (here before. In review, everything came into focus. She thought—he's ;i soldier, yes, bul willing to fight tor the cause that pays most. He's likeable and charming but (here's nothing behind it. No matter where he flies, there'll always be a day of reckoning just over the horizon. And some day he won't be lucky enough to escape K. ''There's not another second to spare. Coming with me?" She stared at him. "Please—for my sake," she tried to say. He shook off her hand from his firm. "So long," he said almost jauntily, "I love you, but I'd rather face a firing squad than stay here a prisoner. If you v/on't go wilh me, I'm going alone." As a mechanic stepped out of the plane, Vincent leaped in, pulling on helmet and goggles. The plane taxied along the runway and then lifted, its wings at sharp angles against the.morning sun. Slanding tliere motionless, Mary knew then that when he went, some part of her life went with him. Always, she'd remember the way he'd smiled and the crooked lift of his eyebrow. Ho loved hei —the gay part of U—the carefree part. She knew, too, that Vincent hac planned all this. The borrowed car, (he wailing plane. He'd even iscd her to shield his getaway. Yes, he'd ralher die lha;i be im- irisoned. Perhaps he was In this py plot deeper than she knew. But even if he were, she could lever hate him—she could only pity him. • * « 'TURNING toward Vincent's car, Mary saw another auto pulling down the sandy road. Startled, she thought it was a Scotland Yard patrol. Instead, she began to remble when she saw Gilbert Lenox's red head. She ran towards him, her arms outstretched. "Oh, Gilbert," she cried. "You're the one person In all the world I want to see most. Vincent's gone. I couldn't stop lim." "I know." Gilbert put her head igainst his shoulder. "As soon as you walked out of the hospital, I knew I had to follow you, foolish, loyal little idiot that you are. f kept track of you when you ioined Vincent at the tobacco shop. There were some awful minutes ivhen I (bought you might weaken nnd liy (o go wifh him. But when I guessed his destination was this air field, something told me you would stay behind." Mary broke down in the comforting protection of Gilbert's strong arms. "I'll have to go to Scotland Yard at once," she began in a strangled voice. "It's jny laull that Vincent got away." "Come on," Gilbert salu gently, "although I've a hunch you don't have to worry. The morning papers are filled wilh your wonderful feat. You're England's heroine today—and I'm proud you have my name." She could only stare at him, all her heart looking out of her eyes She'd wanted to spare him this hateful publicity — and here he was, glowing wilh pride in her.' 1 In Inspector Babcock's office, i 1 was as busy as it had been hours before in the excitement of Carl. Marchetla's capture. The inspector saw Mary ant beckoned to her. 'My dear, 1 know what you're going to leU me Vincent Gregg got away—but it' ot your fault.
