Claud N. 8a pp, of Columbia, would receive a recess appointment a district attorney for the Eastern Federal Judicial District of South Carolina turned out to be correct. The rest of the rumor to the effect that Senator 8mtth would oppose the confirmation of Mr. Sapp as one "personally obnoxious'' to him will have to wait until the Senate la In session in Washington again. There remains now the persistent rumor that Governor Blackwood Is to set a Federal appointment before his term expires. The rumor crop la unusually large thl year. PtBXIC DEBT r r The calculation that every man, ' woman and child In 8outh Carolina owes approximately one hundred oil an as an individual share of the total debt of the State, Its counties, cities and other political subdivisions doe not take Into account the Fed-era! debt The figure quoted here yesterday show that 'this was a sizable amount In 1933 and It Is much larger now. More Important right now probably Is the cost of government, all divisions. It Is encouraging to note some re ductlon In roots but. even with these reductions a comparison of such governmental costs now with such costs fifteen years ago Is truly disturbing. LIFE INSURANCE GROWS It Is Impressive to be ' told that the American people are now paying life Insurance premiums; at the rate of ten million dollars dally. j And that this Is an Increase of . almost half a million dollars over the dally premium receipts of a jrear ago. It Is slso of Interest that the majority of big insurance companies are Investing In government bonds. These companies evidently are not worried over any collapse of government They may reason that If the government does collapse no investment win be worth anything and thai government bonds are therefor the best bet In the Investment field. That people are buying more life Insurance today than they were a year ago Is an Important Index to general conditions. Ifc certainly Is not an. unfavorable sign. The' 'facts here given are from an Associated Press dispatch sent from New York a few days ago. , The 'dispatch' gave other interesting Information on Ufa insurance. These extracts will be xA general Interest T More than half the population of the United State carries lire Insurance. Ro'hly 61.000,000 to 70.000.000 people have life policies out of a population of close to 130.000.000. ' There are only about 10.000.000 Individual stockholders and 1,000.000 owners of bonds. The total dollar volume of life Insurance underwritten lit the first five months of the year a-mounted to U .67,1 97.000. a gain of $541,329,000 over last year. In addition to providing food ' measure of the average American's pocketbook, life insurance company statistics offer an excellent cross-section of the investment and financial markets. . The assets of the life companies are enormous. These forty-two concerns controlled 117,417,-000,000 (as of April 30) of funds which must be kept In profitable employment. The opinions of the men who handle these funds naturally have a deep influence on the condition of the markets. Their assets, incidentally, rose 1397,000,000 In tlx twelve months ending April. At the present time sixty-five per cent of the new funds of the life companies is going Into Federal Oovrrnmcnt obligations. Their aggregate holdings of government-securities erased the $2,000 ,000.000-mark for the first time on April 30 when they totaled $2,022,000,000, compared with 11,465,000.000 the year before. Some State and municipal ob'lgations are lncludrd in the total. Other bonds and stocks held Imountcd to $0,868,000,000, compared with $6,275,000,000. Mortgages amounted to $5,457,000,000, against $6,002,000,000 twelve months before. Life company executives say, by the way, that payments on mortgage principal are running well ahead of last year. As a form of Investment life Insur ance Is far better known today than la the past. The old Idea that it was solely a form of protection has given way to the feeling that It is a desirable wsy to Invest funds along with the protective feasure. ABOUT PARDONS AGAIN Whether the charge by a young lawyer in North Carolina that a "pardon and parole racket" was in existence in that State Is true or not. It "IS a fact that there is too much pardoning and paroling going on In many States. A Oovernor In South Carolina has the power to upset the verdicts of Juries and sentences of Judges. That la about the only real power he has. The General Assembly has the power which candidates for Oovernor take delight In claiming for themselves "if I am elected." Little attention to paid to the stand of a Governor In the. matter of pardons and paroles. But this should not be so. Candidates for Oovernor should make their position plain. I J lTTaFt JOB INSURANCE Wisconsin. has a Job insurance law and it to about to go Into effect. It Is a very forward step in the "socialisation" process - and grave doubts may well be entertained as to its practical working. PECULIAR, WHIMSY The Texas man who went wild and killed three people "because they waked him up out of a sound sleep" may have been "craxy" all the time or he may have Just had a spell' as the result of an unusual Idlosyncracy which causes a man to go wild If awakened. Years ago a certain lad from the Piedmont section as a college student had this sort of thing In a lessee degree but so much so that his roommate did not dare wake him up "before day." They usually went to bed at the same time but if by any chance the roommate was out when the lad with the wlld-temper- when-waked-up went to bed first, his roommate would spend the night with some other boy or boys. Beware of the man who cannot stand to be waked Up. , He may be dangerous. I J L 1 .A CUTTING DOWN The Waldorf-Astoria, ranked as the best known and probably the biggest hotel In many ways In the United 8tates, was one of the first to see aid In the new corporate bankruptcy act. Yhe hotel owes a little over five million dollars In current bills or accounts and has less than half a million dollars to pay this batch of bills. In arranging a new schedule to srork out of debt the approval of a Federal Judge has to be had and me of the requirements Is a reduc tion of salaries. Oscar, the famous chef, has con tented to a reduction In salary. He formerly received thirty thousand dollars but he will now get twenty thousand dollars. That Is not so bad. Lots of folks are not getting one-twentieth of that sum and oven some are not getting anything at all. And Oscar does not have tnyboardl to pay NO WONDER Rabe: Holt: Rabe: How Is walker?

Hill completely upsets a phllliplc that any newspaperman who hasn't reached an executive Job at 50 1$ destined for the alms house. Hill, now slightly past 50, Is and always has been a reporter, and the half century mark finds htm in greatest affluence. Born In Aurora, Ind , he became in the customary migratory gradations of his kind one of the bright young men on The Sun of Boss Clarke. And with Richard Hardin? Davis the best drrvied rexirter of the era. He was with Charlie Bum. mervllle the first scribe to swing a cane on Park Row. He came back to the newspaper Kftine a few years aico after a Hollywood flyer. The studios were not not up his alley and he confrs-sed to Keat 8perd he wanted to get back in harness and stay the rest of his days. It was then his sen sational rise began, the perfect em bodiment of a transition period Radio, lectures, books, theatrical engagements and a newspaper col umn filled his life at never before. His voice became one of the best known over the air and this large audience has been augmented by signing up as a news-reel announcer. Thus making him, next to Damcn Runyon. the moat highly paid reporter of the day. Mont wlnex waiters In the smarter New York restaurants, socked out in bras chain loops, have been imported from Euroe suave servitors who have the flair of meeting every drinking emergency.- They bring a bottle of wine ma though It had Just been sequestered from Napoleon's private cellar. And they twirl bottles in the silver ice buckets with a devotion that spells technique. The most expert draw higher pay than the head waiter. Few ever take a drink.

Young Alfred Owynne Vanderbilt seems that rare specimen, a popular young millionaire.
