Rabid baseball fans who argue that baseball is a man's game, will have an opportunity to change their minds after seeing the Hollywood club in action. Beauty is no bar to baseball ability.

It is expected that the oil well oper ators' "strike" against low priced oil will extend to other states, throwing additional thousands of oil workers out of jobs and reducing their stand ards of living.

Washington, D. C. (ILNS)—A plea to employers to aid in every way pos sible to find work for unemployed vet erans of the World War was voiced by John R. Alpine, special assistant to the secretary of labor and super vising director of the United States Employment Service, in a radio ad dress over the Columbia broadcasting system. After pointing out that the em ployment service is now expanded and reorganized in every state, following out the plans and purposes of Presi dent Hoover and Secretary of Labor Doak, Mr. Alpine continued: "Embraced within the work of the United States Employment Service and constituting one of its most im portant and vital activities is the plan of co-operating with the veterans administration and the Veterans of the World War.

(WNU Service.\ HOWARD MOULTON sat on a bowlder overlooking a series of shoals In the river. Near him sat Mol lle Ilarkins. Howard was staring toward the white spray which arose from the rolling waters, watching the little rainbows forming and disappear ing, as the sunlight fell upon the mist. Two weeks before, Moulton had been dragged more dead than alive from the waters of the lower tier of these shoals, where the long low bridge spanned the stream. An overturned automobile which, for some unaccount able reason had decided co mount the railing, had flung him there. The girl who now sat only a few feet away, studying his expression through big brown eyes, had dragged him from the waters and she and her mother had nursed him back to life in thje little cottage home which nestled against the cliffs just above the east end of the bridge. The wreck of the automobile still lay among the rocks In the stream. As Howard's gaze wan dered to the wreck, he spoke: "It was a narrow escape for me, Mollle," he said. "But for your strong arms I should have passed from the things of this life pretty quickly, I Imagine." "Yuh did mos' drown afore I could git yuh out," agreed Mollie "an' I reckon It's a good thing I stayed there at the toll station, watchin' after yuhr car as It went on the bridge." "Yes a few minutes more might have meant eternity for me. I shall always be grateful, Mollle." Mollie and her mother kept the toll bridge on the Ravenall highway. Mol lie could see from the cottage anyone coming down the road, or crossing from the west side. Promptly she would skip down to the little booth, and collect the toll, allowing the trav eler to proceed on his way without loss of time. Usually she did not tar ry after making her collection. But there was something about Howard Moulton which had strangely Interest ed her. He had smiled, and had been very civil. She had liked his voice, too, and his blue eyes which seemed to have such friendly gleam. So she had watched after the car, wondering if he would return that way. As she had been about to turn away, she had en the little roadster, to *r horror, mount the railing of the bridge. Mol lie now was going over In her mind the exciting period of the rescue, when Moulton's words broke In upon her thoughts. "Mollie," he began, "the letter which came this morning was from Dad. He Is coming for me today.'" Mollie's large eyes sent forth a startled look. "Why—why—" she stammered "ain't It a Ion™ trip? Hadn't yuh better wait a. spell long er1?" "No I have given you and your mother trouble enough. But, Mollle, there Is something I wanted to ask you about. Perhaps I shouldn't, after all your kindness to me?" Mollle became deeply puzzled, and she looked toward Moulton with large question In her eyes. "I hope you will understand," con tinued Howard. "It Is this: There was something I had when I came here— even after you had pulled me from the water I was conscious of having it. It was my most cherished posses sion and I—I have lost It while here In the house of your mother." Mollie Harkins came to her feet She was deeply troubled. "Lord, Mr, Howard,V she exclaimed "you've got me plain scared. We didn't take any thing o' yours—we surely didi.'t! "You were to call me just 'Howard, you know, Mollle?" "Oh yeah I know. But i.ow you're accusln' me o' somethln', an'—an' can't talk to yuh no more thet way." "You are the thief yourself, Mol lie!" Moulton's words came clearly. The girl wheeled about. Through her tears her eyes flashed fire. "It ain't so!" she cried. "It Is so, Mollie!" Howard had rls en. "The thing I have lost Is—is my heart, Mollie—and you have It!" There was a moment during which strange amazenent held the girl speechless. Then she smiled, and the tear drops seemed to throw off little rainbows like the spray down the river. "Well," she acknowledged present ly, "you got mine an' I've hyeard that a fair exchange ain't no robbery." She fled to Howard's arms. At the same time a voice came from the shrubbery near-by. "Well," salcl the voice, "I expected to find you In the most romantic spot on the river after the letter I had from you, telling nothing but of the charms of Mollle Harkins." Moulton faced about, but did not release the girl. "Dad," he cried "this Is she." "That was not hard to guess.. And I can understand now, Ml* Mollle, why the young scamp drove his car off the bridge. He was willing to play with death to have a girl like you pull him out of the water. Well I am sure It was worth the chance."

BARRETT OLIVER WENDELL HOLMES TT IS Interesting to note the large amount of space given to editorials in leading newspapers regarding the associate justice of the Supreme court, Oliver Wendell Holmes, who celebrated his ninetieth birthday on March 8. Commendation and praise together with hearty congratulations were the unanimous greetings of all who ven tured to express an opinion publicly. k years. •L. One of the most interesting facts a o u u s i e Uolmei' expexi- W. A. Barrett. enoe in the Su preme court is that through having long passed the age of voluntary retirement, he chooses to continue to bear his full charge of re sponsibility as a member of that court Most men would be glad for the oppoiv tunity to retire on a comfortable al lowance for the remainder of their days but not so, Justice Holmes. Commenting upon this fact, he was quoted as having said: "If I should retire I would die, and I do not want to do that." Another interesting thing is that la spite of advanced years, Juatioe Holmes in mind and heart Is still very young. Most persons having passed three score years and ten live in the past and manifest little or no inter est in more modem ideas. Justice Holmes having arrived at four score years and ten is so modern In his thinking and interpretations that he is referred to by many writers As a rad ical. One writer in particular spoke of him as "Our 0-reat American Lib eral." His brilliant court decisions* many of which expressed most mod* ern interpretations an(j W8re in many cases on the minority side of the otmrt, have become classics in legal litera ture. Justice Holmes refuses to admit fall ure. His persistency and capacity for hard work as well as his splendid character have endeared him to all his countrymen. Last but no means least, Justice Holmes is a great pa triot. As defender of his country he not only served for 29 years on the Supreme bench, but in the early days served a most honorable career in the Civil war, receiving three bullets in that conflict which he still carries la his body.
