The younger child had been sent to the store with. SO cents to buy a-dosea eggs. Be met thKten-yelr-fyd and between them they decided to do many things with the half-dollar. For 47 cents they bought two one-way ticketa to a neighboring city. With the remaining three cents they purchased penny pencils whflch. they sold for Ore cents apiece. Renewing their stock, they continued, their sellng, and when picked up by the local police had tZl and two unsold pencils. They said they had hoped to have enough money to purchase a pair of shoes and replace their mother's 60 cents before starting for home. It is a tale at which many grown-ups will be Inclined to laugh. Some even will think the boys "awfully cute" to do such a thing. In a way it was just a funny little escapade. . In a number of other ways it was rather serious, and its graver elements can be blamed chiefly on the adults with whom those boys bad com in contact. ' No responsible person should hare bought pencils from- the boys on the street or any where else. No responsible person approached as a prospective customer -should have over looked the boys' age or ignored the fact that they were obviously engaged in anNnnlawful business. Once the boys were safely back beneath the parental roof, it is to be hoped that they were told simply -and clearly what they had done in appropriating the egg money, in running away from home, in selling pencils at 400 per cent profit and in trading on the pity or amusement of their customers. ..;Tno Argus Santa Claus takes care of the foot, children of Rock Island each 'Christmas.

Jack Britton, former welterweight cham pion, offers $10,000 to any one who can make him sleep normally, - He's had insomnia for a year. Many pugilists have it only in the ring. "It's nervous trouble," says Britton. "Train ing for 20 years has proved too much. While I haven't any particular designs on getting the title back, I figure X can still box a lot if I can get sleep. If Lcan't, I'll be forced to quit." Jack, why don't you try reading the Congres sional Record? . If you have ever tossed at night, unable to drown this nerve-stabbing life in deep sleep, you sympathize with Britton. We spend a third of our lives in bed. And the incalculable value of sound sleep is realized only by the chronic victim of insomnia. Do you find, on the aver age, that your waking life is more delicious than the perfect calm of sleep? Considering the joy with which we close our eyes and rest our weary bodies and tired brains at night, it Is a trifle strange how man dreads the final sleep, death. Sir Basil Thomson, former head of Scotland Yard detectives, has solved many mysteries of crime. None "of them was a millionth as mys terious as sleep. Claperede had a theory that nature makes us sleep to prevent us from killing ourselves by exhaustion. . The Coriat school of physicians believes that sleep is sim ply a relaxation of all muscles, necessary to rid our bodies of poisons- accumulated while awake. A third theory, by Dr. Boris Sidis, is that monotony is the cause of sleep. When life no longer is interesting enough to keep usl awake, we chloroform ourselves with slum ber. If so, we' sleep because our subconscious minds get bored at this rather dull life on earth v It is one of the most baffling enigmas of na ture, is sleep. Also, one of the greatest forms of real wealth, of fortune. Dollars and fame lose their lure when natural sleep' is denied chronically. What would you nor giye to know what happens to your' real self .when slumber divorces you from the material world? prosperity though times have greatly improved in the past year. ' Let us remember and be thankful tor these more important elements of life our families, our health, our friends. Many a home that is trying to make a smajl chicken serve as Thanksgiving feast, for a half dosen hungry mouths has more of genuine love and happi ness to be thankful for than someof the places where butlers serve giant turkeys on silver platters. And if we are away from, home, forced to dine at a public eating place among strangers, let us be thankful for the love of far away home folks and friends. Such is the real Thanksgiving spirit! - THE PRINCE OF WALES.

The case dragged along for 30 years, the litigants spending over $10,000 in appealing to higher courts," or 20 times the amount at stake. A judge now dismisses the suit unsettled. Both litigants are dead. So is one of the original lawyers. No one is certain what the bone of contention at the start was. Some think it was a piano. Something is wrong with the legal system that permits the spending of $10,000 to determine the ownership of 1500. THE SCRIBBLING URGE. No one alert enough to read the advertise ments can fail to be amazed at the number of patent pencils and gigantic new style fountain pens now on the market No one can walk in the business section of any city and fail to no tice the large number of show windows dis playing these pencils and pens. The number of portable typewriters is increasing. Adver tisements and show window displays tell of the merits of the "personal" writing machines. The" conclusion that everybody is writing is Inescapable. What are they writing? Pub lishers have their printed x forms of rejection stored away by the thousands; moving picture concerns ditto. No one has yet computed the total poundage of manuscripts the maif car riers tote from the wielders of pencil, pen and typewriter, to the publishers and back again to the writers, accompanied by those chillingly polite printed slips conveying the publisher's thanks and regret that the offerings are not acceptable. There is, we believe, one selling point that writers of the enticing ads for the pencil, pens and small typewriters have missed.- If they could incorporate in their already alluriag guarantees one more to tho effect' that "this ar ticle is guaranteed to produce fiction and scen arios that will suit the publishers" their fac tories would be working morning, noon and night DAY OF JOY. V '- . What are you thankful for this Thanksgiv ing day? Wait a minute. It is a failing, char acteristic of Americans, to attempt to express everything A-terms of money. t Or, at least, in terms of prosperity. Most of us have the no tion that Thanksgiving day as a national festi val waa born in much the same spirit a grati tude for good fortune. To some extent It waa. The Pilgrim Fathers were thankful for crops thatensured them against starvation in the barren winter that lay ahead. But unques tionably their joy was not confined to food. They thanked the Almighty for liberty In govern meat, freedom of worship efiuHIhe ateplo Joys of happy homes. So, this Thanksgiving day, let QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. The Kesorcin Qaestien. It Is almost as bad aa discover ing that there is no Santa Claus to feel that anything you write must be revised. You have occasionally suggested inNyour column the ' use of reeorcin for dandruff. I think. The United States public health service report No. 305, Cosmetics as Drugs, says: v . "Reeorcin is one "of , the fre-; quently occurring constituents of hair tonics. In common with the other coal-tar derivatives, it is highly toxic, because of the production of methemo glotin. Some persons are par ticularly susceptible to its in fluence and many -cases of col lapse and even death from the external use of resorcln are on record." W. S. B. Answer Nearly always you may bank on what the United States public health service tells you, and what the reprint (No. 305 from. Vafo public health reports, obtainable for 5 cents , from the government printing office, Washington, D. C, and full of facts about cosmetics) says of resorcin is no doubt true. But not in, say, one grain doses daily, applied to the average head, even if the average newspaper reader's head absorbed things read ily.. There is one objection to re sorcin, and I have nearly always mentioned it in connection with the suggestion of the 10-grain-to-the-ounce solution. It may stain very light or gray, hair a dirty yellow, if used fop' a considerable period. So if any such tendency is noted, the use of resorcin should be dis continued. This drop of ink may make a hundred worry, but I shall continue applying resorcin to my X own head to- control dandruff, just as though I had never, heard any horrible yarns about it. Thick Lips. As the result of an accident 10 years ago my lip was left thick ened. I saw a formula for this in your column, but the druggist re fused to make it up becajise he said it was injurious. Can you tell me , S. L. S.

William Allen White, writing in a weekly magazine, says rather forcibly: "Education as a palladium of our liberties should be sent, into the shop for several repairs. Education is not doing the job. They all have grand educa tions, these millions of voters. They can spell a little, write a fairly legible hand, and bound the Ukraine, and toss around logarithums and make, anglefool cake and quarter-sawed music racks and chatter about the .

Pupils still make-music racks in manual training, perhaps, and angelfood cake in cook ing .class, but they are learning more than in former days about civics and economics and social problems. Through the stndent council movement which is spreading through the na tion's high schools, they are learning self-gov ernment and cooperation for the good of all, and a few other wholesome lessons which will not-e wholly forgotten when they rush to the ballot box four or five years from now. - - THE LOSING GAME. ..!

If proper preventive meas ures were taken, we are. told, vice, crime and disease could be reduc ed to a minimum, and the charities they 'entail would be largely un necessary. But instead of at'tacking evils at the root, communities busily en gage in what one social expert calls "mopping up work," Everyone knows that alleys and tenements breed crime and vice, and that they are in the long run expensive. Yet millions of dollars are regularly put up for prison relief,' homes for abandoned mothers and milk for underfed babies, while itfs next to impossible to raise money to re place tenement conditions with something better. The latter course would mean in many cities a great reorganization, and cities have always shrunk from trying to- tackle a number of so cial problems at once. It seems easier to fight vice at one time with ! a board and committees of special ists, and to take another time to campaign against defective sanita tion. ' Into this situation comes the so cial engineer. He is called in by a city or county to point out the de fects in its management and to sug gest a way to correct these defects. He surveys the entire social organ ization, makes a written report, and leaves the community a" practical working plan to be carried out. If social engineering is to be. come a new career, as the national community board believes it will it will have to be standardized, and proper training for the work will -have to be given in colleges. Dr. Jackson says that these steps wili 1 soon be taken. He predicts that in 20 years universities all over the country will be giving coupes. Dr. Jackson has been doing the work of a social engineer without " the official title for some time. He has followed his profession in the' mountains of Kentucky and in such widely scattered cities as Toledo, ' Dallas, Boston, Los Angeles, St Louis and San Francisco.'' Dr. Jackson is not only a social expert; he is something of a pay- chologist and a diplomat. He finds " that communities resent the impor tance of outsiders to do their work for them. .That is why he merely prescribes Jor a satuation and leaves a newly formed and inspired board of local social engineers to do. the town's work. He believes that every city should have such a . board of men and women who not only know local conditions but who apply" their knowledge with social intelligence. The city manager is at present the nearest approach to the, local engineer. But the city manager is handicapped because he is almost entirely restricted to administering affairs as they are. He has little This may well seem an enormous j or no authority to try to change task. We have become so used to the idea that a person must spe cialize in a subject before he can be an authority that we instantly ask how a man can be a specialist on the entire social structure.

A Practical Generalist The social engineer represents a I conditions, and so his work is not often of the constructive, engineer ing type. Dr. Jackson believes that a key to the defects in social organization reaction against a tendency toward fare work supported by the people over-specialization. Some students "The day for charity is done. It of the world and its affairs say that ! is unmoral, debilitating, and ruia Bneriallzation has become so acute . ons to American cities.

But ordinary corrective so- a specialist's own cross sectfon of knowledge fills his horizon and oth er nren's work fades into insignifi cance in his opinion. This is one theory to explain why cities con tinue to struggle along with out worn institutions. The experts do not have a panoramic view of con ditions. The social engineer, being a prac tical generalist, is supposed to get a panoramic view, and, what is more difficult, he is supposed to make the community's specialists and workers get it. That is, per haps, his biggest task. . This .work is quite obviously a cial work is like cleaning out tk well by painting the pump. "There is a growing resentment against charity and real rebellion against innumerable tag days and benefits, but the cities don't know what to do about it. The thing to do is to eliminate the need sofer' as possible and to establish local social engineering boards to cor relate social activities, eliminating -the useless agencies ami increas ing the effectiveness of those that are useful.
