High Standards Must Be Maintained At All Costs -' — - ■■ ■ Important Thing It Not The Depression, But How We Are Taking It, Babton Declares; Quitters Fleeing to Bankruptcy Courts To Escape Honest Debts BY ROOKK H. BAUSON, Copyright Pulili*hi*ni Finan cial Itumiu. Babeun Park. Maas.. June 4.--TUf important thing is not the depression but how we are taking it. The general depression will pass* away and gen era [prosperity will return, but wheth er prosperity ever returns to a given Individual or business depends ab aolutelv on his or its conduct now. This generation is undergoing for the first time, a crucial test. The depres sion will strengthen the characters of some and destroy tne characters of others, depending on the stuff they are made of. We are going to learn that the real failure is not loss of money or posit ion but loss of char acter; and in the same way we are going to learn that real success can orly come by maintaining, through thick and thin, high standards of con-! duct both in business and in life. Those concerns and individuals who either meekly accept failure or. un der pressure, resort to unethical or dishonest practices as the easiest way out. can never share in the future prosperity of the country. Theee hard times are rapidly sepalating the fight ers and the “square-shooters ’ from * the cheats and the “quitters." You can ; easily tell them apart. The quitters j are fleeing to the personal bank- , ruptey courts to escape their just debts. They fail to realize that by so j doing they are blasting their char-J THE OLD HOME TOWN NeflAtrtd U. S.

Must Build for the Future. One group of business men will shade the quality' of their g«M»ds by putting in inferior materials, thus cheating the public, who now, as never i before, need every bit of wear and j service from the things they buy. The ! other group of business men will main- [ tain their same standard of honest I quality and refuse to be pushed into ! the “gyp goods" class even though they temporarily have to operate at a loss. They will lower prices but will refuse to misrepresent their mer chandise in order to undersell com petitors. They know that the only > sound foundation upon which to build a business is fair dealing with their customers. They will not try to es cape the present depression by en dangering the reputation of their business for alt time. Rather bv con-j stantly sticking to the job. keeping an open mind to new- ideas in sales and production, and carefully watch-] mg the trend of demand, they will i fight through on an honest, upright basis.

Evan though temporarily thay may make profits from the abuse of labor and by unfair competition in established markets, the manufacturer who wins out finally will be the one who has nißde honest goods and has treated his labor fairly, even though he has had to reduce wages. It la only the cheata and the quitters who resort to sweat-shop methods, und sooner or later they suffer the consequence of their misdeeds. If the laws of the States do not get them the inexorable laws of sound econmtcs will. Testing the Politicians. This depression, with its tremendous national problems. Is also applying the ucid test to our politicians.

WOW GO ON WITU THE STORY] CHAPTER 25 “YOU LISTEN TO ME!" Tg.rry’s lon* was ugly as he shot the com mand at Livingston. “You're going to stay right here and that log book la coming back! I>on't make any mistake about that. There may bo ways to make you tu t as we direct," he added darkly. “A return to the dark ages and the torture chandler?" Livingston asked lightly, whimsically. I saw a wave of hatred surge over Holmes’ face, and 1 knew be was re membering the feel of this man's flesh beneath his fist. 1 saw that Tom sensed the mounting .ension Pauo. sitting close to Larry, was evi dently perfectly In sympathy with him. After her.; experience, that was easily understood. It was Tom who stepped In. "There shouldn't be a great deal of difficulty 'in getting that log back." he told Livingston easily. "In the morning I li radio your boat and sign your nain?.“ “You're an operator, then?" Liv ingston asked. "Yea" "I take it you heard some inter esting flashes go out from here In that case," Livingston smiled. “Very Interring.'" "Utato Is a fool at times," Liv ingston said briefly. "He was teaching me the code." Pom grinned. “Naval man?" “During the war." •I was under the Union Jack for a time myself." It occurred Ip me that to hear the two chatting one would have thought they had met casually, shortly be bore. That is what polish und breed ing will do tlie World over. Some men can tear each other to pieces and •till be gentlemen about it. The ten sion eased slightly. Livingston looked over at Pauo; "Really you know 1 am sorry to have had to 'plant’ Utato on you. but I wanted to know what was go ing on." That was the way ..he man was. He realized instantly that Utato's days of usefulness on Moatonga had passed. There was now nothing to conceal. He took It easily as he would take a smart move by an op-, lament In a rhaaa game. One of hie' partisan jealousies will blast their po litical careers forever. Even though these hard times have brought great suffering they are not without their compensating values Men and women in all station,- of life are learning for the first t.me what real character is. Those who are fundamentally honest, courageous, in dustrious, and humane will find the battle a stimulant and strengthened pawn# had r <*:> ri«e.i removed from the h ; . u “H#w long have you had Utatof" I askad. “He wit* on my ship during the watv and when be came out of u.u form I took him wttb me." “Would Utato be listening on the Wanderer if I were to send to him now?" Tom wanted to know. "Really, it Isn't going to be quite as as that." Livinedon an swered "Ti.c.e ;* only *- « pen or. who knows wheiv that loy ..•» hidden, and 1 am that person." Suddenly Pauo sat up very straight l noticed that her eyes were blazing pueerly. “Palmer Livingston, why don't you drop thin whole thing and go back to your copra plantation?" For s moment 1 thought he might tvJt have heard the question. He sat very still. Then he replied quietly: "My dear iudy, the answer is sim ple. The war washed us out." and he spread his hands expressively "That gem. worth several sizeable fortunes, is somewhere on Tarea. I rather fancy Parisian jewelers would give a good deal for the Sacred Eye of Nu. the biggest, most perfect hJack pearl the South Seas ever produced. It's quicker titan growing copra, and 1 am partial to the life of an English country gentleman." "But you haven't any right to it.” Pauo cried. "It doesn't belong to you. That jewel has been linked to my family for a hundred years.” “Possibly as much right to It as your greet grandfather had." he told her Impassively. "Personally 1 think the Jewal really belongs to a very ancient religion, but now that the fir tests of that faith are no more—- to whomever finds It. and can bold it But of course that’s a matter of opinion." “Has that given you any right to gain my confidence. to gut spies In my home, simply ao you could find out all I knew ot the story? la that your standard of fair play?" “I should aay that all is fair In love and war." he told her casually. I didn’t like the light In Istrry’a eyes. As 1 watched I saw the muscles of hla paws go rigid, and the knuckles of hts hand whiten. "Where was Utato tonight?" 1 asked. “We didn’t see him whan tee visited’ you." I know, of course that he must have been on the ato] with the others, but I grabbed at random at anything that would serve to turn the conversation in safer channels. “Cher on the Island with the crew," Livingston replied politely. “The had been on board for several days, and I gave then a chance to stretch their legs.” ‘Thoughtful of you to build a great roaring fire lo ’telegraph’ your skulking In there behind Oomoa.” Holmes gloated with a half-sneer. His very posture was a taunt. ’Those things will happen, don’t you know, in spite of everything,” Livingston said, laughing at hia own expense. *‘l cautioned the men to build a very small blaze, but appar ently they forgot,” “And you were too deeply en grossed in matters of great moment to keep watch that orders were obeyed.” Larry's laughter was posi tively insulting now. He was mik ing no attempt to hide hia sting ing hatred. Livingston, on the other hand, was maintaining a serene composure, ap parently oblivious to the venom in Larry's voice. He was in a decidedly delicate position. I couldn’t help ad miring the easy grace with which ha carried tha thing oft Hia perfect poise under the circumstances was unique. Hare In this vary room where ha to their determination. Those who are cowards, weaklings, cheats, and self seeklng and cruel will be tried in the crucible of depression and discard from future respect or consideration.

Livingston, too. possessed that charm fatal to women; that davit, may-car* dash, plus the physical courage to buck it up. Hia was a picturesque, nonchalant personality. I wondered Idly to Just what ex tent Holmes aanaad this, and how far It went toward whetting hia keen hatred of the man. From long as sociation I knew he wns sensitive to those fine over-tonea of life. Pauo’a voice speaking to Living ston roused me from my reverie. It had that desperate note; almost pleading. "You know the cur.-ve that has fol lowed that jewel," she wu« aaying. “You know the story of my great grandfather that be never came kick. That curse isn't broken yet; Ancient Nu ha* power, and the his tory of that poarl la written in hu man blood!" “My observation is that human blood is one of the cheapest of all commodities." Livingston rejoined impassively. We were to have reason to re member that remark vividly, later. At the moment t chilled ua We were seeing .vet another side of the man. I chanced to glance at lone and Filly. They had looked up startled. Then 1 saw Holmes! 1 wanted to shout—to tell him to put that damn gun down, but I realized that a quick noise or movement can often be the detonating spark in a gas filled chamber. 1 didn’t want to watch murder, so I gripped myself. I knew that gun. It was mine, snd with terror I remembered that It had a light trigger action which would pull-off under a couple of osnrex Larry's face was livid with rage. The muzzle of the automatic never wavered. It was pointing directly be tween Livingston’s eyes. /TO UK CONTINUED) Dispatch jWANT ADS Get Results •the chance to pur oh**, V hfcv * b«* motor ojf 0 ?^r r of *• 5 gallops $1.75 Now ts qua " highway No 50 at the Known as the Nash North Henderson. 8 rent ments in the Stonewall 215 v T ' Avenue.
