New York, 350 Madison Avene. Jones Enters Lists The -announcement Saturday that Je*se Jones of Houston will accept the mandate of his Texas friends and permit his name to go before the democratic na tional convention as a candidate for the presidential nomination received warm approval throughout the South. At the state convention the suggestion that the Texas delegation be pledged to vote for Jesse Jones met the approval of party leaders as well as the rank and file. Mr. Jones, however, demurred to the sug gestion, but upon the insistence of Texas democrats ha« finally agreed to become a candidate, and this de cision signifies that tha Texas delegation will center their efforts upon securing his nomination. It ia universally admitted that Mr. Jones has per formed distinguished service for his party. He is im mensely popular in Texas and is very highly regarded in other democratic strongholds. He added to the is teem in which he ia held by taking no part in the factional disputes at the Beaumont convention, and whila other party leaders were “jockeying" for fac tional position, he has consistently devoted his efforts toward making the Houston convention the most suc cessful In the history of the party. Mr. Jones feels that sinre he was instrumental in causing the democratic national committee to choose Houston for th* convention this year, he should spare no efforts to convince all element* of the party that they will be welcomed with typical Texas hospitality. Aa he says, he has been “too busy with plan* for the national convention next month to give state politics huch consideration." But other Texans have devoted a great deal of their time and attention to state politics in recent weeks, and while there is some disagreement among the leaders, none speak of Jesse Jones but in praise him. He is the one man upon whom Texas democracy can center, and his decision to become a candidate will have a harmonizing influence. Governor Moody and Jesse Jones have an extra ordinary hold on the Infections of the Texas people. Some of the men who are most violently opposed to Governor Moody's harmony progrnm frankly admitted the governor should head the Texas delegation. They are Moody followers, even though they do not approve of the Moody program. But to an even greater extent Texas democrats esteem Jesse Jones Texas will d<> fitting honor to one of her distinguished sons by mak ing him her choice for the presidential nomination, and In doing this will harmonize all factions. t F Farm Bill to be Issue Failure of the farm organization groups to pass the McNary-Haugen farm relief bill over the veto o President Coolidge in the aenate last Friday was fol lowed by the announcement the fight would be carried to both national conventions for » platform expres sion seeking to commit political parties to that plan of farm relief. Taking their step from the receot action of prohibitionists they will not be satisfied with a plain or general statement calling of equity for ag riculture, but want « atatement in the platforms that ia definitely favorable. ' From the West message* of revolt against the ad ministration's stand have been coming to Washington in large numbers, bearing the indication that resent ment ia greater than has generally been believed and that the future efforts would be directed against the Hoover candidacy. The degree of opposition that hns beon generated throughout the agricultural area* is causing the republican leaders, and especially the Hoover faction, considerable concern. While this op position will probably not be sufficient to block the nomination of the commerce secretary, it la destined to play a very important part in the November elcc tfon. Farm leaders assert that the only thing th.il would assure the Northwestern states remaining in the republican column would be a clear cut declaration for farm relief in tl:e party platform. Mark Sullivan, nationally known politiral writer, diacussing the situation created by the president s veto, says: '“There has been ample comment about the cap itol that the repudiation of the president on his veto massage and the threat of the farm organization lead ers. was hourly drifting the republican political situa tion to where the Coolidge administration, itself, would seek a test as to whether its policies are to stand In the national convention and later before the people. There is to be no compromise, the understanding with the Dawes-Lowden-Curtis-Watson coalition on the McNary-Haugen issue, and. if necessary, the Kansas City nomination would again be laid before the presi dent in a plea to save the administration and the partv -The president’s refuels have not served to k, I thi ‘draft Coolidge- sentiment. The most active in the movement, however, are lacking in confidence that the president would at this late day acquiesce even in the face of stringent demand. Under such contingency thair attention Is being turned to former Secretary of State Charles E. Hughes of New York, defeated in 1916. who, it is understood, will take the nomination zhould it come to him in proper form and with party approval." The farm bill veto is destined to be made the dom inant issue at Kansas City, yet it is difficult to be have that the republican national convention could be induced to repudiate the administration of its party. Democrats also will have the issue before theru, but on a different basis. Members of that party have gen erally "stood by” the farmer in the congressional fight tia year, yet many of the leaders who will be at Hous ton are opposed to giving a straight endorsement of the McNary-Haugen plan or in the equalization fee by name. An endorsement of surplus control and a de mand for treatment of the farmer equal to that of other classes is as far as they believe the party should po in its national platform. Fap®irs WHERE NEW ADVENTURES LIE (Chicago Daily News). Adventurous souls are looking forward with appro F.ension to • time when, like *o many Alexander?, ihe> will find no moro worlds to conquer, and will have t< confine their wanderings t© plowed ground. Gen. Um berJo Nobile, commander of the dirigible Iteha, un wittingly sound* a somewhat dismal note when ue as serts that flights over the poles are rapidly becoming ! so feasible that toon an elderly scientist like Edison will be able to enjoy the trip, unfitted as he is by his years to stand anything like a grueling experience. Thanks to the advance in aviation, says Nobile, it is j now possible to reveal in one year what has beer: sought for centuries. Of course the end of all original conquest is nut exactly in sight. There ere a few more jung’ct to penetrate, a few more rivers to trace, a few moie mountains to ascend. But when these have been sub- j jugated by man, and tamed to his uses, what remaint but boredom and tears? Well, at least there is the new science, or art, of astronautics, which has to do with voyaging to the stars. Its devotees are all superoptimists. In their bright lexicon there is no such word as fail. Any speculative astronomer can figure out an 'n- i terstellar time table. J. Arthur Thomson has one | ready to hand in one of his easy '‘Outlines." The orbit of Neptune has a diameter of 5.600.000,000 miles. A shell shot in a straight line across that orbit would require 500 years tngnake the transit. Alpha Centauri, j one of the nearest stars, is 25,000.000,000,000 mile.- j away; Sirius twice that distance. Only thirty star:, j are within a hundred trillion miles of the earth. and the more distant visible stars are at least a hundred thousand trillion miles away. "What of it?" asks the bold astronaut. Doe* net the hoary slogan, "Hitch your wagon to a star,’ still hold good? Or. if this inspired admonition is out worn, why not bring it up to date with sonoe such watchword as "Tie your airship to a comet's tail?” The new type of explorer is not easily daunted. He can say. perhaps with a good show of reason, that to | Greely and Kane a trip to the pole by air was a* in conceivable as a trip to Mars or the moon now seem: j to the faint-hearted. If the airship is found wanting there is always Professor Goddaro s rocket to fall hack | on—or with.

Driaeoll ART OUT OF LIFE Clare Sheridan has achieved notable success as s sculptor. Sho is a good writer. I Ho not know what else she can do brilliantly and well, but ! suspect that J her talents are innumerable, and that she can do well whatever she determines to do. It is extremely interesting to me to learn that Clare Sheridan was not brought up in an art school. She was reared as a London society woman, in the midst of a vast amount of pretense and display. Her parents tried to shape her career so that she would capture n wealthy husband. She disappointed this expectation by marrying Wilfred Sheridan, and he was killed in the war. Mrs. Sheridan became a sculptor because there wa* within her something she felt she must express in sculpture. Her second baby died, after a short life of suffering during which it had endeared itself to her as only a sick and .beautiful child can endear itself to ! a tender-hearted mother. The bereaved mother did n«t want to buy a marble ! tombstone for the bady. She wanted to express he own grief and memory. Ather than hire a stonecutter j to try to do it for her. She she s*t to work to model a little memorial panel, with her baby's face and figure on it. She went to a pottery to see how modeling in clav was done. She took home some clay, and presently , was deeply engrossed in performing a labor that helped her to express her feeling. She really got the ex pression of her dead child into the modeled figuie, but it took a long time. * • • • • Well, that's how Clare Sheridan beeame a sculptor. She relate* the incidents, without the interpretion I have given them, in her autobiography, "Naked Truth," 1 recently published by Harp«rs. Afterward*, Mrs. Sheridan made money out of her art. She has done head* and busts and full figures oi some of the most prominent persons of our time. And she has done them well, because she is an artist. She did not get her art out of an art school. She got it j °ut of life. She did not heroine an artist until she had I first lived. Her first work of art was an expression I from the depths of her wounded soul. And that is j how art comes to the artist. \RT AND BEAUTY SEEN AS CONTROLLING FACTOR IN AMERICAN DEVELOPMENT Ry CALVIN COOLIDGE President of the United State*. (Calvin Coolidge was born in Plymouth, Vt., in 1*“2. After having been graduated from the Uni veraity of Vermort, Mr. Coolidge studied law with Hammond and Field. Northampton, Mass, He be gan practice at Northampton in U*97. Mr. Coolidgn served a* city solicitor of Northampton from 1900 to 1901; clerk of courts in 1904; member of gen | *r*l court of Massachusetts in 1907; mayor of Northampton from 1910 to 1911; member of state senate from 1912 to 1915 and governor of Massachu setts from 1919 to 19220. He was elected vice president of the United State* for the term 1921 to 1925. Mr. Coolidge became president of the 1 nited States after the death of President Hard ing in 1929. He was elected president of the Cnited States in 1924). Wh-’e we hate been devoted to the development of our materia! resources, as a nation ought to be which heeds the admonition to he diligent in business, j have not been neglectful the higher things of life. I In fact, I believe it can he demonstrated that the in tellectual and normal awakening which characterize*) our people in their early experiences was the fore runner and foundation of the remarkable era of de velopment in which we now live. But in the midst of all of the swift-moving events, we have an increasing need for inspiration. Men and women become con scious that they must seek for satisfaction in somc thing more than worldly success . They arc moved with a desire to rise above themselves. It is hut natural therefore, that we should turn to the field of art. In the development of an artistic sense and in min istering to the love of the beautiful, we naturally have sought examples of art of other years and other coun tries. as well as those of our own period and country. 1 he assembling of these treasures in museums not only has made them available to the public, but has afford ed the opportunity for comparison and study. 1 heee are museums devoted to history and to sci ence, and, more recently, to the industries as well a*s to art. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been spent in land, buildings and equipment to accommodate collections of inestimable value. It is said that it costa somewhere in the neighborhood of $2r.,onp,o«M1 a year to operate and maintain them. It is especially the practical side of art that re quires more emphasis. We need to put more effort nto translating art into the daily life of the peop'e. If we could surround ourselves with forms of beauty, the evil things of life would tend to disappear and our moral standards would be raised. Through our con tact with the beautiful we see more of the tru’h and • are brought into closer harmony wit the infinite.

But when she reached her office in the morning, she found a special delivery letter on her desk. It read: “Dear Stella: A terrible thing has happened. .My brother was mur dered last n;ght in that Jazzland roadhouse. Shot to death. I can t write mere. Am on my way home.

Here, in rooms screened from the street, wines and liquors are served, and food cooked usually very well in the Italian or Greek or Russian manner. There is often a passage way to a gravelly yard in the rear, wiiere tables are set out under striped awnings. In one such secluded spot Stella Rsgot and Ernest Hallam sat late over their coffee and cigarettes. All but a few' couples of the dinner crowd had paid their checks and gone. The balmy evening air stir red caressingly about them. Stella, very pretty in a light summery fiork and a small hat that fitted closely about her shapely dark head, rested her bare elbows on the table and smoked thought'ally. Hallam considered her. He liked the way she held her cigarette. She had pretty hands, the fingers slender and taoering, and she posed them daint ily. He was perhaps ten years older than she. and a personage. Early ir his twenties a precocious first book had brought him a considerable suc cess. Since then he had published many. He,was a striking figure of a man. tall and vigorous the leonine head thinned somewhat hy approach ing baldness, but losing nothing In distinction through the deepening touch of maturity. She had been ex cited when he first asked her out to dinner. It had teemed incredible that the famous Ernest Hallam should single her out from among all the gifted and attractive girls that swarm in the big city, he could pick carelessly where fee chose. His taste and his cosmopolitan sure-handedne.«s had awed her. From the first she'd been fascinated by h«s skill at ordering a dinner. To him it »ii a rite, to ba approached i i ' .£ • • Si* ■ - * a with delicacy and with an epicurean understanding. He could tell w-ines by their flavor. He always mixed the salad dressing himself. She knew that he was us much at home along the boulevards of Paris, even at Rome and Madrid, as here in New York; and she wondered if she'd ever know those unbelievable places herself. She wondered, too. with a stir in her breast, who would be her companion on the journey. The complexity of the man taxed her understanding. An epicure, he was yet at 'home at any carelessly Bohemian meal. An outspoken mod ern realist, he appeared to dwell imaginatively in the region of pure fancy. A man (the thought brought a flutter of the darkiy fringed eye lids i whom a number of women had loved with something rear tragic in tensity. yet a tireless worker of aus 1 tere daily habits. A prim thinker with the reputation of a wit. A proud man. who knew his public and his place before it. vet something of the sensitive child. A literary sensualist governed by a rigid artis tic conscience. An adriot, often in spired writer with an i nerring sense of word values, and an elusive deli cacy of taste, who yet .talked, at times, like a slangy boy,*~who went to ball games and played Kelly pool at bis club. He knew Cezanne and Picasso and James Joyce; knew, indeed, with some intimacy, most of the leaders of the modern iconoclas tic thouzht. He also knew ball players, prize fighters, negro poets, Russian danc ers. He had two or 'three children, in some suburb or other, in whom, as in their mother, he seemed sober ly. honestly, to have lost interest. He wasn’t, Stella told herself, tne suburban type. He «ai cosmopoli tan. Really something of a super man. You had to be honest with y ourself about such things. ( onven tional folk eouldn’t be expected to understand him. You didn’t find his sort in books, or in the routine sort of life. Of late his personality had color ed and. in deepening measure, en veloped her. She couldn't help talk ing like him. even in a groping way of thinking like him. And many of what she supposed to be her personal convictions, to be miintained with fervor, were little more than echoes of his. Yet Stella had color and per sonality of her own. There had been 'igor in the Bagots long generations before Pearce Bagot drifted rather aimlessly into the puzzling tangle called living. She could be crisp and decisive enough when not too ! close to Ernest Hallam. His new' novel, •‘Flame,” he told ‘ her. had just been put under the ban of censorship in Boston. Hia pub | lisher was dashing up there on m« Owl with a lawyer. "Are you going up?" she asked. "1 rather think not. They've been ! at mo about it, of course.” “Why don't you? I should think ■ you’d want to fight.” "Oh, you have to fight 'em. But that's the publisher's job. It’s all so vulgar.” Stella's pretty mouth twisted into a faint smile. “Poor old Boston." said she, musingly. “1? those Puri tans could only be made, somehow, for just a minute, to look honestly into their own minds.” “It would scare ’em to death. It's only the morbidly oversexed sort of folks that are so frightened about sex.” “Of course.” "By the* way, Stella, you haven't told me when you’re going."
