HARDSHIPS STING
AS CAPITAL FEELS
ECONOMY'S PINCH
(Continued from Page one.)
without cutting salaries. In fact it
means approximately one month's loss
of income per furloughed civil ser
vant per year.
Os course some workers cannot be
spared from their jobs. They (iabove
the SIOOO class) have had to take
straight pay cuts, varying from 85 to
20 per cent, depending on the size of
their envelopes.
Even these retrenchments are in
sufficent, however. There have been,
or must be soon, numerous indefinite
furloughs or outright dismissals.
It is a squeezing-out process from
which a deal of hardship and many
gross injustices naturally are result
ing.
Underlings who have been drawring
$1,200 to $2,400 yarly do not appear
greatly impressed by President Hoov
er's action in leaving 20 per cent of
his $75000 stipend to be impounded
by the treasury or by the action of
his cabinet members in sacrificing
15 per cent of their SISOOO each.
Washington's living costs have not
materially declined; salary reductions
are ood enough. The lot of federal de
pendents who ar thrown entirly out
of employment at a time like the pre
sent is deplorable.
Moreover, the saving, comparatively
speaking is negligible.
Uncle Sam's post-war budget is
roughly five billions annually of which
at least four billions are absorbed by
irreducably-fixed charges. What lit
tle can be prumed from the remaining
billion by salary' shaving is, too the
government, about the equivalent to
the price of a newspaper to the aver
age individual.
True, there is another side of the
question to be looked at.
The fed?ral civil personnel already
was redundant when the world con
flict began. Instead of being cut to
reasonable proportion, it has been
heavily increased since the armistice.
It By no means is principally a use
ful force, such as the government
would have to have if it were operat
ing vast utilities, like the railroads
and telegraphs. To a considerable ex-
I tent it is parasitic; to some extent
positively mischievous.
Dozens of bureaus, the size of pre
war ebainet departments, have been
created. , ,
Thousands of so-called workers are
on the federal payroll who not only
would be dear if they cost ntohing.
but would be undesirable if they were
paying for the privilege of maintain
ing their government connections.
Raving their salaries is less impor
tant than getting rid of them. It
doubtless la barbarous to do it dur
ing a period of such economic strin
gency, but never under heaven «>uld
it be done except In an extraordinary
emergency of one sort or another.

adopted daughter of a wealthy fam
ily. but is not to share in their for

are faced with the problem of "mar
riage or career" and Camilla docs
not tcaaf to tie Peter down when
hr has so much promise as a sculp
tor. At an art school dance. Gus
Matson, Peters roommate, who is
fealous of Peter’s success, takes Ca
milla out on the la ten to tell her
“somethinp slif should ktioti- about
P< tcr." Gus tells Camilla Peter is a
cheat. Dial he only wants her money,
o.id that he. Gus, loves her himself.
At that moment Peter appears on
the scene and knocks Gus flat. On

tells Peter they are s/oinp to do some

cides that they are to be married. anri

CHAITER 1?
THEIR CONVERSATION about
the pictures which Camilla had pur
chased for her room when she was
nine years old. had had some influ
ence with the decoration of liter's
studio. Os course, he knew that her
ideas and preferences had gone mod
ern after the modern manner, but
where there was an indigenous foun
dation of classic appreciation, the
new structure above was hound to
be influenced largely by it.
He planned and selected accord
ingly, delighting in his task. In this
day of women's emancipation. It
seemed a bit incongruous that he
was the master adorning the castk
for his bride, and particularly in
view of their very modern marriage
arrangements. It had to be worthy
of her. however trivial the cost might
be.
Even so. he was rather proud of
the finished result, and hoped anx
iously that Camilla would like it.
Somehow, he waa sure She would. He
felt so sure about Camilla In every
way. Instead of feeling panic at the
thought of being married, when he
had always placed that experience
far beyond in his career, be felt a
sense of peace and security that af
forded him a greater hope than he
ever had believed possible before.
After their prolonged wedding din
ner at Charm Cottage, they walked
through the park down the ave
nue to Annex Hall, in the soft magic
of the June twilight. To them, the
whole world was a changed place
Familiar objects and sights were en
hanced by the reflected light of their
dreams and hopes and the transfor
mation of love. The fairy tale about
wearing rose-colored glasses is not
so fantastic as It may seem. Every
one changes hia smoked glasses of
gloom for the tinted ones according
to his mood and the experiences of
the hour. Their transformation of
the same objects is as amaxtng as
that which the advertisements prom
ise to stout or aging women.
With hearts beating high for no
obvious reasons, they talked as cas
ually as though they had just left
I'rofesaor Drake’s class, to separate
ut the far side of the campus; but
the sky had never been so blue nor
the sunset so golden to ‘hem as it
was upon that day.
To reach the entrance of Annex
Hall, they were obliged to turn from
the avenue Into on alley and cross
a paved court. The building really
was an old mansion whose Spacious,
high-windowed rooms had been con
varted into studio rooms to let. but
tt joined the more pretentious and
newer Craft building with Its mod
ern construction that catered to the
whims and exacting requirements of
more established and successful art
ist* A corridor connected them, but
it was an infallible and unwritten
code that tenants of the annex
scorned the mom sophisticated en
trance of the Craft building, which
would lead ttto the other. It was
like being loyal to your east®, of
refusing to be a hypocrite.
So Peter and bis bride respected
the conventions, and entered
through the earvdd and weathered
portal of the annex, which pro
claimed Ms magnificent past like an
Impoverished dewager maintaining
her hauteur ka rusty silks and faded
velvets. They were greeted hr the

odor that Is prevalent in old houses,
mixed with the fumes of paints and
oils and the more recent odor* of
food, it being the dinner hour in
those one-room apartment* whose
high doors concealed brave hope l .-
and secret heartaches One feels this
atmosphere of intense conflict in
such places, where he knows that
Into each small niche, aspiring
genius has retired to hope and strug
gle until It opens its doors and
strides forth to astonish the world
with its achievement; like the bril
liant butterfly Emerging from its
chrysalis.
Perhaps each of them sensed this
atmosphere of retirement into ob
scurity. for thejf were silent while
they climbed the old carved stairway
and followed the dimly lighted cor
ridor to the rear. But their silence
was not oppressive with doubts and
fears Were they not retiring Into
that obscurity, together, to work and
hope side by side and emerge tri
umphant together? In their youthful
Imagination, they already walked
the avenue of fame with laurel
wreaths upon their brows and passed
beneath the arch of triumph to
gether.
Peter broke their silence with awk
ward bluntness as he stopped before
a door on whlrtt were tacked small
metal digits to form' the number 27.
“Well, here we are, Mrs. Anson
Number twenty-seven. Struggle Ave
nue, Hope Annex.” He drew a key
ring from his pocket and fitted one
of the keys into an old-fasbioned
lock below a white porcelain door
knob. He pushed the door open and
stood aside for her to enter.
Camilla gave the room a quick
glance and then looked at Peter.
He was alarmed. “What's the mat
ter. dear?"
"Nothing at all.” she smiled. “But
I was Just thinking. Peter, darling,
about that old custom of carrying
the bride over the threshold of the
new home, so that happiness and
prosperity will dwell there. This may
be the only home we’ll have for quite
a long time."
He had her in hia arms before she
could finish, holding her as lightly
as a river supports a leaf, as he
stepped into the room with her. He
turned and cloned the door behind
them with his foot then kissed her
and aet her down gently in the cen
ter of the room.
Camilla laughed happily and looked
about her slowly. He waited anx
iously for her verdict
Finally, she gave a Jttle gasp of
delight “Why. Peter, it's beautiful.
I had no Idea that you could —but
where did you get all of these iovely
things, dear?” Her enthusiasm
pleased him immensely.
“It would take awhile to explain
the history of everything, but you
can get it all gradually. For in
stance—well, what do you like best?”
She glanced around the room
again, quickly. “I am most curious
about that modeled group U> the win

That oversowed the measure of

his delight. “That, my dear, is m>
wedding gift to you. How did you
know ?"
"You made that?" with astonish
ment.
"And you inspired it.”
She crossed the room to examine
it more closely. Her fingers touched
the statue reverently. The principal
figure was a woman with a shawl
over her head, awry; the expression
of her face and the posture of her
body portraying alike a wistful
weariness, a timid aggressiveness, a
fearful hope. Her face was lifted up
toward a distant object that was
vaguely obscure. But each of her
hands clasped the hand of a child —
a boy on one side and a girl on the
other, who leaned against her and
seemed to draw back In fear. But
their faces, too. were lifted toward
that invisible object lu the distance.
The clothing of all three was Ill
fitting and clumsy, and there lay a
knobby buadle close beside them on
the plinth at their feet.
Camilla turned to Peter reverently.
"You have done this beautiful thing
just for me, darling?”
"Do you like it?" taking her to
hls arena
"I love it next to you. because it
Is part of yourself." she told him.
with wonder In her voice. “If you
can do that for me—you can do any
thing. I have no fear for us. now."
He dismissed her praise with a
happy confusion. “You are a preju
diced critic, i can see that. Bui it
makes me happy just the same, and
gives me hope Remember what you
said that first night when we found
love togetlier. about the brave soula
who arrive at Ellis Island with
shawls on their heads and hope In
their hearts. 1 began to work on
thi9 for you soon afterward. Then
w hen we planned later to be married
so soon. I saved it for a surprise on
our wedding day."
"It’s perfect. Peter, and so—right,
isn't It? It expresses us, exactly. Ok,
1 can't put into words what I feet
dear, but you have it ail there; every
emotion and dream and fear that a
brave adventure brings."
"Your interpretation is even wldai
than my own.” he admired thought
fully, “You see. already, you have
inspired the best thing 1 have done
and have doubled its meaning at the
first glance. If I expected to succeed
without you. what shall I do with
you?"
“Become very famous, of court*,*
she told him confidently, and moved
nearer into hia embrace.
"Ton are ao sweet,” he murmured,
holding her close.
Camilla reached her arms up
around hie neck and their eyei
plunged deep into each other a be
