DOROTHY DIX Spendthrift Children The grcnf American romance ,„ the "rag to Mehes" story of the poor boy, who, through his brains and brawn and thrift, raises himself from a lowly position in the woiId to a seat admist the mighty. It is a fine, brave tale, and a true one, for among those who have made our country great and powerful and a leader among the nations, aret thousands upon thousands <j| men who laid tho basin of their fortune by pinching pennies, and got Iheir education in the University of Hard Knocks. Indeed,' in this land of opportunity, hertofore the secret of success has been, for a 'boy to rnako up him mind what he wanted; and to have the guts to go oufs'aml Ket it. For if there was not a '-baton in every soldier's knapsack, a's the French used to say, there whs in every boy's head the dreams, no matter how -poor and- humble lie was, of the fortune he would make the high political office he would hold, • the brigde he would build. And many a man is today president of the bank ho used to sweep out; or governor of the state in which he was born, and sees the trains thundering over the bridge he built. LIFE EVER THE SAME The fundamentals ofrlifc do not change. The chances "of success, or failure, are Hie sarile as they have always been. The.door of opportunity can still be crashed by thliost: with the strength to do it; but when I see he way in which indulgent parents aer ..bringing up their children, I wonder if our national theme song will not soon be changed from "rags to riches" to from "riches to rags," : ; For we are rearing-, a generation of spendthrifts aiifl pleasure- seekers who have nd. conception of thrift, no idea of the value ot money, and who except to strat their careers at the top dt the ladder instea dot' working 'up from the bottom.

Cecily's mother, will never forgive me. I have adored Cecily since she was a baby—kept on adoring her even after I married Robert and my daughter Comma was born. Long ago, too I know that Delia was raising Cecily to be an insufferable snob, und that she was jealous of my ®- love for her. When Cecily was ten and _ . — •• ^-^-*-'ij w us Lirn UIIU Cormna eight, I had a chance to undo some of the harm Delia had done. Cecily stayed with us for six weeks while her parents were away. It was necessary to transfer her to public school and I saw to 'A, thul sn ° met children from the Playground. Both Val, Robert's Playground protege, and Stevie Ralston, rich Mrs. Ralslon's son, nad a crush on her and she actually seemed to prefer Val. Delia's return put a stop to this, however When Cecily was in high school, 1 objected to her joining a snobbish soroity, but Delia said all the girls from the hill beloived —and she wasn't going to have them snub Cecily _ . 'XII Cormna graduated from grammar school and entered hi<< school two years behind C ecily she stormed into the kitchen that first afternoon and slammed her she can'l shrill drove like crazy from junior col lege every afternoon to get back to high school in time to meet Cecily for sodas at Down's Hang- Out.

It gave' her a great deal ol was nn authority on the betwcon- sehpol-and-home lives of all thc- juniors and seniors. She knew before any one else that Slevie was on his eai because Cecily and Val had the leads in the school play. The school paper helped matters along svith a silly comment in the gossip column that if the school board had permitted kissing in the love scenes Cecil yand Val could reallj •have put their hearts into it . Corinna read the item aloud to me gleefully that evening. "And now Stevie and Cecily aren't going together any more!" Corinna climaxed her «!-»-:• "Somebody handed him a and he was tidbit. - _ papei burned that hj purse into a chair. "That snippy old burst out. "Mama, I just STAND Cecily any more!"

'Well, I wouldn't speak to her. either," Corinna said. "What makes you think she would care?" "She'd care, all "right," said Corinna.

She was engrossed with thte social functions ol her soroity and wtih the boys who swarmed after her.

"They won't have anything to do wlili me because she won't. 1 guess she knows thai she can't run me around the way she does them!" It was a scource of great satis- laclion—the pictuie she entertained ot Mrs. Halston's stjuirmin" under her resolute stand. It would have been funny except for the elfect that fixation was haviii" on Cecily's life. Corinna brought home high school gossip.

"And you had no business keeping it from me!" "I promised not to tell," Corinna defended. I longed to shako her. "She's in the doghouse with Val, too," Corinna added with relish. "For making up to him while she was wearing Slavic's pin inside her dress. I guess he's mad at her for taking it in the first place. She was crying her eyes out. I guess it'll do her good."

"Well, pal, I'm going to let you in on something new my Uncle came out with a while back. Me has a plan so that any man honorably discharged from the service since 12 May 1045; can re-enlist in a grnde commensurate with nis military training, but not to exceed the grade he held nt. the time of his discharge. Here's a little idea on how it works: If a man was discharged in the grade of T/Sgl. and held an MOS (Mill- Uiry Occupational Specialty) as 965 'Automotive Repairman), and has 30 months or nxorc prior active service, lie sari re-enlist in the grade of T/Sgl.. If he only has 30 lo 3G months prior active service, he c;in re-enlist in the grade of S/Sgt. It works down the line so as an ex- service man can get all the benefits he is entitled to. It sure is a good deal and I think every Ex-GI should look into il right away. If you would like any further information on it, iust drop into your • nearest recruiting station and bring along your form 100 with your original discharge.

M., Aug. .1—(VP)— A bear weighing more than 200 pounds was in a trap which IMV Young had set as a government trapper. Because he wasn't a stock-killing bear, the law required Mts. Young lo free him. but it Wasn't as easy as it rounds. She edged her truck near the trapped animal. The Bruin scrambled under the vehicle,' ,-;nubb!hg himself to the rear a:de with the trap chain. Ginfierly, Mrs. Young tied him with a tope, then cautiously sprang the trap, and—from a distance — loosened the rope. The bear went up the nearest tree, hastily.

Slusser rr Judge Dexfer Bush's "Plain Statement Is Not So Plain In Thursday's issue of the Hope Star there appeared a political advertisement titled "JUDGE DEXTER BUSH'S PLAIN STATEMENT AS TO THE LIQUOR QUESTION." In a desperate effort to gain the sympathy of the Drys of Hempstead County he went so far as to accuse his opponent of casting the deciding vote which legalized liquor in 1935. This is a deliberate misstatement. You are correct, Judge Bush,, when you said in your ad that prohibition is not an issue in our race. The real issue is that prohibitionists as well as all other citizens are going to say by their ballot on August 13 which one of the two of us will make the fairest and most impartial judge. Yes, your decision in the Hempstead County local option case has been severely criticized. Lyle Brown had an official part to play in that case and suppose we list briefly the true facts: FIRST, the citizens of Hempstead County filed petitions with the County Judge asking for a local option election. LYLE BROWN, as legal advisor to the County Court, examined those petitions and declared them sufficient to call an election. SECOND, the liquor dealers appealed to JUDGE BUSH'S COURT and JUDGE BUSH ruled that LYLE BROWN was WRONG. ' THIRD, JUDGE BUSH'S decision was appealed to the Supreme Court and there is was ruled that DEXTER BUSH was WRONG and LYLE BROWN was RIGHT. Therefore the election was called. That is the record, Judge Bush, which the Drys are comparing and which will guide them in their voting. • • • • I would suggest to you, Judge Bush, that before you discuss any moral issue in this campaign that you brush the dust off your Bible and turn to St. John and read the admonition in Chapter 8: "He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her."
