Wo often hear that it is a tragedy to be born before one's time. Probably it is. But it to infinitely w&rse to be born too late for OIK'S time. Marie was pan of a medieval system in a day when that system bad to so on the scrap heap. If she rouid have lived a century oartier. her last days would have beet) ttuwie as eaay nnd pleasant as an anpire could make Uses. There would have been court physicians, formal deputations of court ladies. manages of comfort from kings and prttu«s» a paifittal tide room in a greet palace. la- stead there is the loneliest of an adit who has aeea al! that was familiar and ground to bits.

Gang Government Chicago lias a group of sixteen men on trial on charges ot terrorism in the spring election. These men come under the wings of the EUers, father and eon. powers in Chicago politico. Tfaa accounts of the trial are worth reading. For instance: one witness told of voting twenty times for the machine at the election. Another, an election booth watcher, told of being kidnaped by men in an auto who were accompanied by a policeman. Another described a house used as a "jail" to accommodate kidnaped workers. And. in addition, another man waiting to testify was trailed from tb* prosecutor's office and slugged by unknown assailants. Al lof this, worse luck, isnt particularly startling. -We have heaitl it before. Oilier dues have had "repeaters," election day violence, crooked cops and machine-hired plug tiglies. But it is extremely important, as an additional symptom of the most rpfntiring development that has aimeared in American civilisation in decades.

I realize that I am foolishly sensitive in the fact that I shrink from asking these very ordinary Questions of people with whom I am in daily contact, First an explanation. (Here follows m account of a peculiarly secluded childhood, which kept her from learning the simple matters of etiquette in the ordinary way. Since she has come out of her seclusion and gone out to work for her living she is hampered by this condition.) I am in constant fear of not doing the right thing at tbe right time. For instance, I have declined many invitations to lunch or dinner at a hotel and once to dinner at the country club, for the only reason tbat I am not sure of tbe right Hung to do. What are the duties of a host or a hostess in a hotel dining room, tea room or cafeteria? Who makes tbe order and what are tbe natural and usual tfttaf* to do to be at perfect ease? *tethi*tr T* ~Be- Acbaaed Of Answer: Tbat you ohrink from asking your frteads is {>erfee£ly natural. People have a peculiar feaiiuf tiutt they should know all the niceties of etiqtgette by instinct. As a matter of fact, few people do. and a good book of etiquette would be of help to many people.
