Absurdities of Our Present Problems One of the most encouraging things about the world’s resent difficulty is the fact that all of its major prob es are in the highest degree irrational. They need only 3 be stated to have their inherent absurdity made obvious; nd the more they are stated and examined, the more ikely it becomes that mankind will recognize their ab urdity and do away with them. There never was a time when natural forces oper ted to make nations neighborly as strongly as they do ow. World-wide communication is an accomplished fact. )istances have shrunk to mere fractions of their old ength. The increasing complications of world finance and rade have made all countries inter-dependent. A new ietwork of treaties has been set up to preserve the peace. Ivents have compelled dullest men to realize that war osts more than it can possibly be worth. Yet in the face of these facts, one of our very great st problems is the problem of keeping the peace. The vorld is drifting toward war in spite of the fact that it las more reasons for staying at peace than it ever had >efore. It is the same in the economic field. We have devel >ped the art of production to the point where poverty leed no longer exist. We can make more of everything han we can possibly need. The masses of mankind can injoy more luxuries than the wealthy could have a few generations ago. Yet, poverty is increasing and we suffer from a short ige of nearly everything; and as Edward A. Filene, the Boston merchant, has pointed out, poverty has increased most rapidly in those nations whose ability to produce wealth has been most augmented. Similarly, world trade today ought to thrive as never oefore. The facilities for it were never so great; the need of the various nations for the things produced by their neighbors was never so great; the financial arrangements whereby the flow of goods is made easy were never so well developed. But world trade dwindles, year by year, and most nations have been busy cutting it down still fur ther by means of tariffs, import restrictions, quota laws and the like. These problems, when examined carefully, simply don’t make sense. Is it too much to expect that we shall presently find a way to start moving with the tide instead of against it? Safeguarding the Public It is reported at Washington that the administration plans a thorough and complete overhauling of the federal food and drugs law. Such action is badly needed, and can be a real service to the consuming public. Stricter rules governing the labels of cosmetic and patent medicine preparations are among the changes contemplated. One change proposed would prevent a manufacturer from including in his copy the names of diseases unless his preparation was actually a specific cure for such maladies. We would get, under such a rule, no more of those concoctions warranted to be useful for everything from bunions to gallstones; we would get no more “sure cures” for tuberculosis, cancer and pneumonia. Things, in short, would be on a much sounder basis. It is to be hoped that the administration goes through with its plan.

A Georgia woman who has lived to be over 100 years old says she has never seen an auomobile. ' BEGIN HERE TODAY AARRETT COLVIN, back In New York after four years, meets 30-year-old ELINOR STAFFORD and falls In love with her. Bar rett la 35, wealthy and has mads a name for himself as ai arche ologist. Elinor's beautiful mother, LIDA STAFFORD, has kept the girl In the background, wanting atten tion for herself. Lida Is carrying on a flirtation with VANCE CAR TER and la constantly scheming to keep In the good graces of MISS ELLA SEXTON, her hus band's aunt. In order to Inherit a share of tbs Sexton fortune. Eli nor hates thin hyprocrlsy. Barretts half-sister. MARCIA RADNOR, Is terrified for fear her husband will learn of an unfor tunate episode In her past. Years before Barrett shielded Marcia when n youthful romance ended disastrously. Marcia had a son whom Barrett adopted. The boy la nine years old now. Marcia Insists that If her husband learns the truth he will never forgtvo her. HAROLD DEXTER, the boy's tutor, threatens blackmail. Bar rett. hinting at knowledge of Dex ter's past tall of which Is bluff), frightens the man Into promising he will not moke trouble. Barrett takes Elinor Stafford for a drive. Each time he sees her she seems more charming. NOW GO ON WITH THE STORY CHAPTER X g ENT WELL STAFFORD sat be fore the fire, flushed and heavy eyed. The usual decanter and glass were beside him on a small table within easy reach. For the first time that he could remember Elinor had not greeted him as he came In. Although the home-com ing had left him hollow it warmed him, too. He hoped that she was out with some young people having a good time. The fact that she had so few good times made his eyes fill with those tears that rise easily from alcohol. A little stir at the door made him turn to see Elinor, her eyes bright and shining. “Well, child’’—he offered in a rasping, low voice after the cough that was habitual. “Dear!’’ she exclaimed. She came forward swiftly, stooped and kissed him, then settled on a low stool at his feet. Her father studied her. She was beautiful — rarely, undoubtedly beautiful. He didn’t see how even the dullest eyes could miss that fact. "And what?" he asked. It was a nightly ritual, one that had started back in the days when It prompted a history of her play hours and of how she had done at lessons. “I had a ride,” she replied. She was staring Into the fire and trying not to smile. He saw her set her teeth on the lower lip which would turn upward, saw the dreaming languor of her eyes. “Um!” Stafford reached for the decanter to pour another drink. He had always known it would hurt when it came; but be had never sensed the depths of the hurt. And yet be wanted Elinor to fall In love, to be happy and settled In a home of her own. Odd how rea son and Instinct quarreied! Hs etppkd bis bracer, set down tbs Che stifled on a low stool at his feet. glass and spoke. "And who took you riding?” “Mr. Colvin—Mr. Barrett Col vin.” “Thought perhaps you’d gone with Bob Telfair—” “Oh. no!” "Like him, don’t you?” "Yes, I like him but—” • • • 66JJUT what?” Stafford prompted. How had anything so beauti ful come to him and to Lida? So beautiful spiritually as well as physically? He never had been able to make it out. “Weil,” she explained slowly, "1 like him as a very good friend. You know he’s helped me a lot with 1 Cousin Philip, going to see him when I couldn’t manage to because of Mother and the way she feels. He’s beeu a very good friend!” she ended loyally. “Yes, I know. Poor young devil! Well, what about Colvin? You like him?” “Very much.” The response came low. “Hum—l" Bentwell again lifted his glass. ”1 had the most wonderful after noon I’ve ever had in my whole life!” ehe confessed. Bentwell had known it would come to her in that way; that ehe was built to give a whole heart and not a cautious inch of it. Suppose Colvin were damned fool enough not to realize that which wee of fered him? “Do you know Mr. Colvin, Fa ther?” she asked. She wanted to talk of Colvin, he saw. There bad been a time years ago when he had wanted to talk of Lida in the eame way. The time had been short, as Lida was orphaned and alone and ; they had married quickly. Soon after marriage he had not wanted to talk of her nor even to think of her. Elinor bad his capacity for dreaming. She must not be hurt) “1 know him fairly well.” he re sponded in bis slow way. ''His family have lived across the etreet from Aunt Ella for more years than sven I can remember. While I was still on the leash I used to be Jragged there and Colvin and his Bister ran In often. He’s a good chap, I understand, but they say he’s a hard-boiled bachelor. I think a good many women have tried to marry him. The Colvin fortune is considerable, you know.” • • • CHE flushed at the words. ^ “I’m not going to try to marry him,” Elinor admitted honestly and a trifle loudly. "But if he wanted to marry me—he’d have to do no more than snap his fingers or whistle!” She tried to make a joke of it, laughing, but she could not. After the failure she covered her face for a moment with her hands. “Suppose,” Stafford said slowly, “he hasn’t sense enough to know how lovely you are? Sugpose he’s as blind as so many damned fools?’’ “Then I suppose I'll know I wasn’t—nice enough." "Don’t!” Her father begged. Eli nor slipped her hand into his and looked at the decanter. He had al ready had a good deal; more even than was usual. "We must play chess after dinner,” she said, eyes Btill on the decanter, “I’d like to but I don’t want to bore you, baby.” "But I’d love it! You know I love it. Father, when is Mother going?” Her voice was suddenly anxious. "They start, I believe, tomorrow morning.” “Then—that’s all right!” she said quickly, happily. She didn't want Mr. Colvin to meet her moth er until she, Elinor, had had a lit tle chance. She wouldn’t have any chance at all if he met her mother, Elinor knew. It had happened be fore with every young man who had been attracted by Elinor, ex cept Bobby Telfair who had re mained adamant under her moth er’s attacks. The attacks were made, the girl understood, in order that a selfish woman might prove the fact that she could attract and enchant and rule wherever and whomever she wished. The thought of this bad never before really mat tered to Elinor. Now it did. Benson appeared in the broad doorway just then to announce that dinner was served. V gLINOR rose quickly, her father in his slow and cumbersome way. The dining room had been, decorated under Lida’s direction in what she considered an impres sive manner but tonight the aged oak walls and family portraits looked down on faded roses in the center of the table and a Venetian cut-work cloth that was a little crushed. The randies, too, had been burned before. It was the sort of thing EUnor detested. Consistent simplicity she thought to be so much more agree able. The constant striving to im press others had become one of the meanest, although one of the smallest, of Lida’s deceits. “Mother dining out?” Elinor asked after Benson had pushed her chair under her. “Yes,” her father said. “Off somewhere with that young Car ter.” “I loathe him and yet I’m sorry for him, too,” Elinor stated. It was odd how she could talk and hear herself as if from & distance while all the time that new, ex cited feeling in her heart made her seem to be a different person. “Father—" “Yes, dear?" “How are you off financially Just now? I saw a dress yesterday I would like to have.” “Then get it,” he answered quick ly. Elinor’s doing without because Lida simply “had to have" this or that had always angered him. And yet somehow he never managed to compensate Elinor for her patience with having so few frills. "Thaaks ever so much,” she said. Elinor was thinking that she would try her hair a new way. Low on her neck. Her mother had seen her with it that way and called it "idiotically stagey." But her moth er would be in Miami. Beautiful thought! And Tuesday when they drove up the Hudson to have din ner at the inn that he liked she’d wwr her tan coat that looked quite well in spite of being so old and the little tan hat that Celeste, her mother's maid, said was becoming. Benson appeared in the doorway. "There’s a call on the telephone for you. Miss Stafford." he said. “It’s Mr. Colvin.” 1 (To Be Continued)
