Guaranteeing Bank Deposits
News that congress and the White House have at
last come to an agreement on a scheme for federal guar
antee of bank deposits is sure to be hailed enthuiastically
by bank depositors all over the country. Unorthodox
though it may be, it will probably win the support of lead
ers in business and finance as well,
k It is a truism that business won’t recover until con
fidence is restored; and the very cornerstone of confi
dence must be complete trust in the soundness of one’s
bank account. The American people have had their fin
gers pretty badly burned in the last year or so, and if a
good bit of their trust has evaporated it is hardly sur
This new measure should restore that trust. Once
let every depositor know that his money is safe, and we
ought to get a restoration of confidence which would aid
trade revival.
A guarantee of deposits, however, must be accom
pained by more stringent supervision and regulation than
in the past. The government cannot subsidize bad bank
Old-Age Pensions
A total of 22 states have now adopted old-age pen
sion laws. In these states indigent men and women who
are too old to work will not have to go to the poorhouse
and suffer the stigma ofpauperization. Instead they will
be able to draw regular incomes from their state treas
uries, and while these incomes will not be large they will
at least keep the recipients from starvation and will
save their self-respect.
But that is not the whole story. According to reliable
estimates, the 22 states involved will find this means of
caring for the aged poor less expensive than the old sys
tem. The poor house is not only cruel and spirit-break
ing; it is outlandishly expensive. And incidentally, the
pension laws will remove from the labor market those pa
thetic old job-hunters whose desperation causes them to
agree to work for microspically low wages.
All in all, the arguments for old age pension laws
are pretty strong. The remaining 26 states in the union,
to say nothing of the national Congress, would do well
(fh listen to them.
New Forest Lands
The activities of the “forest army’’ recently enrolled
for emergency construction wrork have aroused a new in
terest in the general subject of reforestation and construc
tion; and it is worth noticing that a survey made by the
U. S. Forest Service urges that public agencies should in
the near future acquire 224,000,000 acres of additional
forest land.
Whatever may be the comparative merits of public
and private ownership in other fields, it is fairly clear
that to put through an intelligent, large scale forest con
servation program the government must own a vast acre
age of forest land. In the very nature of things, the long
range and all-inclusive plans necessary for such a program
cannot be evolved when ownership of the land involved
is split up among a great number of individuals.
Here is a very important field where national plan
ning is necessary. It is to be hoped that the government
will go forward with the work in a far-reaching manner.

Christian Science
Lesson Subject
"Adam and Fallen Man” will be
the subject of the lesson-sermon in
all Churches of Ohrist, Scientist,
Sunday, May 7.
The golden text is from Hosea
14: “O Israel, return unto the Lord
thy God; for thou hast fallen by
thine iniquity.”
Among the passages to be read
from the Bible will be the follow
ing from Romans 8: "There is,
therefore, now no condemnation to
them which are in Christ Jesus,
who walk not after the flesh, but
after the Spirit. For the law of the
spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath
made me free from the law of sin
and death.”
The lesson-sermon will also In
clude from the Christian Science
textbook by Mary Baker Eddy.
‘‘Science and Health with Key to
the Scriptures,” one of which will
be as follows: (p 534):
‘‘Paul says in the epistle to the
Romans: "The carnal mind is en
mity against God; for it is not
subject to the law of God, neither
indeed can be. So then they that
are In the flesh cannot please God.
But ye are not in the flesh, but in
I • _—!
the spirit, if so be that the spirit
or God dwell in you.’
“There will be no greater mental
opposition to the spiritual, scien
tific meaning of the Scriptures
than there has ever been since the !
Christian era began. The serpent,
material sense, will bite the heel of
the woman,—will struggle to de
stroy the spiritual idea of love;
and the woman, this idea. wifi
bruise the head of lust. The spir
itual idea has given the under
standing a foothold in Christian

TpHERE was the music, restless,
throbbing: a tenor, wailing
Into a microphone:
"Anything you say, anything you do,
Da-da, da-da-da,”
Monnie, dancing with Charles,
lifted her head proudly, smiling.
If her heart ached no one should
know It. Charles asked, "Tired?”
and she answered him gayly. Her
tone couldn’t have been entirely
convincing, because he went over
and shut off the radio.
Sandra pouted. "I like that!
Just when I was teaching Danny
a new step!”
Charles seemed not to hear. He
clapped his hands and the Chinese |
boy, Kong, he had brought with
him to Belvedere, appeared in the
doorway, smiling faintly.
"How about some food, Kong?”
Sandra protested. “Charles

In a low tone, Monnie told
Charles she really must go. He
put a warm brown hand on hers
for an instant.
"Do you mean that?”
She did. So the houseboy was
dismissed for the night, and pres

“It was fun,” Monnie told him.
She thought Charles hesitated
for a split second. Then he told
her slowly, “We must do it again

"Everyone likes Kay.” So that
was the way of it, Monnie
thought. Charles Eustace and

"Charles? Yes. Wonderful,”
returned Monnie quietly.
"No, not him,” cried Kay, heed
less of grammar. “I mean the

"Oh. I didn’t notice.”
Kay continued to wield the

her loftily. “She’s been racket

now and hasn’t even snatched
herself a husband. I think she’s
getting scared and so has decided
to work on something simple like
Dan Cardigan.”
“Do you think Dan’s to be had
—just for the snatching?” Monnie
asked quietly. There was a slow,
dull pain in her breast.
“Any of ’em are,” chattered
Kay, smearing cold cream into
her exquisite skin and staring at
herself in the mirror. “You just
have to know the rules of the
“You mean I don’t?”
Kay gave her sister an ap
praising glance. “I guess you
know 'em all right but the trouble
is you let your feelings get in

Monnie couldn’t help smiling.
Where did Kay get all this wis

Kay advised equably. "But I

worried about the other fellow’s
feelings. It doesn’t pay.”
“Do you mind if I turn out the
light, Kay,” Monnie asked her
abruptly. If she heard much
more of this, the tears that had
been threatening her all evening
would be sure to overtake her.
Kay was asleep in three min

. the maid, untied her
strings and wadded the
white object into a hall. Staring
after the car that carried Sandra
and Dan Cardigan off Into the
summer night, she looked furi
ously discontented. She waited
until the roar of the motor
dwindled in the distance. Then,
with her small head cocked, bird
like, on one side, she listened
cautiously for the other sounds of
the household. Cook was
whistling softly to herself below
stairs and there was the irritating
tinkle of water from a half-closed
tap. Otherwise all was silent.
Now Hetty moved on noiseless
feet in the direction from which
Sandra had just come. Sandra’s
room, the door flung wide, was
like its owner—poised and ele
gant. She had planned all the
decorations and the room was a
symphony in white and red. Dull,
creamy velvet and satin had been
used for the upholstery of small
chairs and the low chaise by the
window. The curtains were of
lacquer red, against Venetian
blinds of soothing creaminess.
In all this daring purity,
Hetty’s black frock was like a
blotch of ink. Arms akimbo, the
maid surveyed the scene. She
shut the door soundlessly behind
her and advanced into Sandra’s
domain, her eyes flickering with
repressed emotion—anger, resent
ment or mere ill-temper, one could
not be sure which.
She tiptoed to the dressing
table, sat down on the bench
where only a few moments age
its mistress had preened hersell
and stared at the mirror. Dis
contented with what she saw
there, Hetty clicked her tongue
; impatiently against her teeth and
: began to investigate the content!
of the many small bottles and
jars with which the table was lit
She tried the effect of a car
mine stain on her cheek and
smiled. She unscrewed the cai
from a tube of lip-paste and
smeared this generously against
her rather thin mouth. Then sh<
used an eyebrow brush she found
in a drawer. She dusted her sal
low cheeks and nose with deli
cately scented powder and
sprayed a mist of flower fragrance
against her shoulder as she had
seen motion picture actresses do.
She minced over to the clothes
closet where on padded hangers
and crystal shelves were disposed
the impedimenta of Sandra’s ele
gance. A cloudy blue chiffon
frock she snatched from its trans
parent protector, holding it
against her lean young girl’s
shape to see how it became her.
• • •
A SOUND came from downstairs
—something that sounded like
the bellow of an infuriated bull.
Startled, the maid tied on the
now crumpled apron, crammed
the blue frock hastily back into
its place, made a wild sweep at
her rather bizarre countenane*
with a duster she snatched from
nowhere at all, and flew out on
the landing.
The cook, Mrs. Peterman, was
shouting for her.
"Hetty! Hetty! Where are
All out of breath, she arrived
on the first floor. Mrs. Peterman,
huge in her blue-striped dress,
with wisps of graying hair de
pending from the dusting cap she
habitually wore, frowned at her
and sniffed.
"You’ve been at it again. I
knew it! Mark my words, you’ll
get the gate with your nonsense.’’
Hetty said sullenly, "Don’t
know what you're talking about.’’
"Don’t you, eh? Snooping
around the young madam’s room
and tryin' on her things! Can’t
I smell her perfumery? And your
face! Go wash it in the pantry
this minute. The mister just
phoned he’s bringing some men to
dinner. Fine business it you turn
up looking like a floozie.’’
Hetty showed herself at the
kitchen door a few moments later,
clean and chastened. But Mrs.
Peterman was still grumbling.
"You’ll find yourself out of a
job one of these days and no two
ways about it. With things the
way they are I can’t understand
what’s got into you. You won’t
get another place like this—not
in a good while!”
"I hate this place,” Hetty spat
"Oh, you do, miss? Well, isn’t
that just too bad? I know what’s
eating you, I do. Just because
James is polite to the young lady
and she to him you’re jealous as
a wild cat. I never heard such
nonsense. Suppose you think you
can tell your betters how to be
have themselves!”
"She’d better watch herself,
that’s all I say,” muttered Hetty,
spearing balls of butter viciously
from their bath of ice water and
disposing them on the small crye
tal plates.
"Girls nowadays are out of
their minds, that’s all,” Mrs.
Peterman pursued, flinging open
the oven door to peer in at the
sizzling roast. "Don’t know
when they’re well off. What do
you want to bother with James
for, anyhow? He looks nice all
dressed up in his driver’s uni
form but what that gets you, I
don’t know.”
"thanks for the ad!” ▲ tall
youth, rakishly attired in a smart
chauffeur’s outfit in hunter’s
green, grinned at the two women
from the doorway. "When do we
Instantly Hetty was trans
formed. A smile curved her thin
lips and she undulated toward the
newcomer in a way suggesting a
film star.
"Hullo, Jimmy,” she cooed,
i "When did you get back?*
