THE MALCOLM MESSENGER SUCH IS LIFE Real Pal! By Charles Sughroe mom, that wo AjacrT POOR 13 A B EAU Gbr -coiW VVdR VAS Doubt of Kreugers Death Still Lingers - . Lifelong Friend of Match King Is Puzzled. hhi New York. Tim has not thinned the element! of mystery linked vlth Ivsr Krengei's name In life end death. On the ere of the second anniversary of the reported suicide of this Inscrutable figure In international finance, all of his personal treasures recently were bought at auction hy two buyers whose motives remain a .riddle: -Anders Jordahl, the match king's former secretary, attended the sale held In a Jersey City, N. J warehouse to satisfy aVaz claim by tho United States governmeoiTbut he fled as soon as his Identity became known, i Tho legend again persists that Kran- get's death was as talas as hla Ufa. A few art dealers and a small group of persons were present when Kroger's ' property Wes'! under the . hammer. At tho close of the proceedings most of. tho effectr of Krueger's luxurious Park avenue apartment had been bidden In by two men for less than $8,000. They gave their names, but the motive that, had prompted their bidding remains unknown. Is It possible that they acted for Knuger himself Is he still allvet Did his great wealth enable him to almulate death Is She Convinced These - questions one woman . who best knew Kreuger the recluse, tho ' enigma to his closest business associate has asked herself over and over since March, 1832; when Kreuger Mias Gay t. Bbepperaoa has supplanted a five-member board that had been administering the civil works program la ' Georgia.' Mias gheppersoU was appointed by Harry Hopkins, federal administrator for the CWA, following a disagreement between Mr. Hopkins and Gov. Eugene Tlalmadge of Georgia. ODD THINGS AND WKUlOTlM wA reported to have shot himself In, his Paris apartment Her name Is Fra Ingeborg Eberth, the one woman whom Kreuger would have marrlefi at the expense of his career the one woman he never "paid off." She prefers to believe he Is dead, said Cordelia B. Makarius; agent In New York for Fru Eberth.' Kreuger would have preferred . death rather than be shorn of his far-flung power. Monarch of one of Europe's greatest Industrial empires; Krueger looked upon death as a release. This Is a theory held by Fru Eberth, yet she admits rumors of a huge death hoax might be true: Another man could have been buried Is the expensive casket In Krengei's place. It was sealed and never opened. The physician who signed the death certificate was K ranger's Mend. And there were reports a life mask had been made. Against these rumors was the tact that Kreugar had obtained a pistol and had made preparations to die. Fru Eberth has weighed carefully all of these circumstances, but she hopes none of them are true. May Know the Motive, The motive behind the secret! veness of the two buyers at the recent auction of Kroger's effects may bo known only to Fru Eberth. Tho two men may not even know themselves whom they were really representing at the sale. Fru Eberth lives In Stockholm, where she- haa reestablished herself in her profession as a medical gymnast Around her are a few personal keepsakes that she salvaged from the regal apartment that was closet alter Kreuger's - golden bubble bpoke over a credulous financial world. Sbo sold many of hla princely gifts to pay debts Just as ths proceeds of the auction sale hero went for back taxes Her Mends say she still wonders over the fate of the man whooo house of cards collapsed before he had attained the complete power that he so abundantly craved. Bottle Candlesticks A pair of small olive oil bottles of plain glam with a design on the sides I have such quaint shapes with a tiny I round handle near the top of each that they have been put to use as candlesticks. They stand one on each side of an antique mahogany dressing table with Its raised drawers each side of the oval mirror. The flickering mellow candle flames send their gleams to show In the looking glam reflections of the woman before It today, as other candles showed other women a hundred or more years ago In this same way In the same blulah-toned mirror.

By LYDIA LE BARON WALKER OT somuny months ago and for iv many Receding years budgeting ones Income was a matter of serious concern. Every penny was' apportioned by enthusiasts oa budgeting. They felt security la the plan. But within the past few months little has been heard about- budgets except the difficulties -of - balancing the -rations -budget Private budgets seem to be lost sight of. When Incomes fluctuate, planning budgets has an dement of nncortalnty far from satisfying. It is only when one baa a reasonable assurance of a stipulated salary, -wage or Income, or at least of Its mlnlmunv that exact apportionment of tt can . prove valuable; What toads of families and Individuals find imperative la ; to live within their means. At the present time this Involves In a majority of cases a continual adjustment and readjustment to Immediate financial circumstances. One knows what one actually has, also what It must do, and then what one would like It to do, could It be stretched tar enough. This la the modem budgeting, so tbe budget baa to be made and remade to suit known Frances. Since budgeting , Implies dividing ones Income Into correct sums to cover living costs over some -twelve months, the word has lost prestigai Adjusting dm Plan. What actually occurs has not the air of affluence suggested by1 the word budget but It Is of equal significance; It Is monthly apportionment of cash on hand, or it may be a weekly or even a dally manipulation of current funds, and always with the Hope that some balance will be brand for the comlhg period. Thrifty living Is promoted. After alLAmericans have the name of befog extravagant so some curtailments; when this la ths case, should not be looked upon as actual misfortune. As a matter of tact minute budget-. fog for a household has Its off site Then are Instances where this meticul ous consideration of the budget has robbed the home of much of Its men tal comfort Each smallest expenditure not definitely stipulated for In Its apportioning became a problem and sometimea cause of altercations; ' Home makers should not be discouraged If they cannot make as definite budgets for the next eleven months as they bave been accustomed to. Budgeting Is an approved method, but It Is not a necessity. The. wise expenditure of money Is the matter of importance. A M SjTBdleaU. WNU Sanrtca.
