equipment for a generation which will do its changing happy and reading by radio write nothing but others tragicaly unhappy its signature if that and let the ru confcss that when T was asked machine do all its figuring to tell the story my hesU j because I do not like to look FOR it is the history of education i back I much prefer to look that the past generation imj forward As that grand old trouper poses its standards on the pres Marie Dressier once told me The fan ihP fiitmP past is past Forget cant do ent schools to train up the future generation in the things grand fathers ought to have learned So because Lalin had once been the key to learning it still remained the center of education long after life had passed to science and the Information regarding that was in English French and German books And even now because reading was once the key and writing the tool of learning and figuring the chief need of business we forget that machinery is the chief factor of modern life and that using a wrench or a lathe may be a more practical education than knowing how to spell rt fy Q PHQBABLY in the next genera tion the largest order of the school supply house will be for tools to learn how to make things by hand long after they are all stamped out by aulomalic machin ery and a knowledge how to fill leisure with music poetry art and inlelligent public service is more important than any qualification for And then the following generation will bring up lor this cultivated ease about the time when the world grows so poor und crowded that its chief task is to grub its living by hand from the soi 0 w past is past anything about it anyhow But there are many things which I doiJike to remember My child hood for instance Im sure that no girl ever had a happier girlhood than mine You see my happiness and welfare were planned long be fore I was born My mother who was only 19 thought that bringing a girl into the world was the great est event in a womans life She wanted my name to be Shir ley Jean She was overruled on that by the family and a compromise finally was effected by deciding upon Harlean which they agreed had the double value of being un usual and a feminine version of mothers maiden name I was a model child until because of the devotion of my elders I be came very very spoiled When my mother realized what was happen ing to me she and father moved to a smaller place It wasonly a short distance from my grandparents home and I saw them every day My first impressions and mem ories are blurred But I remember my grandfather tall and dignified with a deep voice and kind eyes He only scolded me once in his life and that was after I was a grown girl in California The scolding came over long distance telephone after he had seen me in my first Hal Koach comedy where I ap peared only in black underthings CHAPTER 5 TRENE told herselt it was Pete Evans she wanted to see Pete FAIR ENOUGH BYWESTBROOK PEGLEK t There he was at the far end of the corridor disappearing into the charlroom If he had turned his had telephoned that she had a case at the hospital If Irene hur ried she could catch her there be fore Pete went off duty The fact that she hoped also to run into Barllett Ralston was not admitted to her conscious mind She told herself she couldnt re main away from lhe hospital too long or the girls would think it queer Besides wouldnt Bart him self think she was hurt worse it she never appeared than if she did The sight of her looking remark ably well in the black suit wear ing gardenias which obviously had not been bought on the street should convince him that she was not exactly having a nervous break down over him she argued walking up the hospital steps Her heart was beating thickly she approached the desk The old familiar smells and sounds had reeled her like forgolten friends This had after all been her en ire world for three years She stopped in the childrens ward and came away without lhe head he would have seen her But

chief problems of our fathers were governmental we talk In terms of government when the present problems are nearly all eco nomic Not what shall be the laws and who shall make them but what shall be the wages and who shall own the property is the question that most concerns modern men If a dictatorship will give them pros perity and security they do not even inquire whether the price it is the loss ot political liberty And the last thing that concerns the citizen in the few remaining demo cracies is whether his laws shall be made by his elected representa tives In facl the only parties we

she sang painted and wrote lovely verse Also there was my lather who went to his office each morning and for whom I watched in the evening Most vivid of all however was my mother golden haired and blue eyed who always was romping and playing with me A vivid milestone in my memory is my first day at Miss Barstows School for Girls The hours were from nine lo one At the end of each school day

Colorado or Kansas Cityonly for the Summer months During those first three years in California my mother and I became more than mother and daughter for we grew to be real friends Dif ferences between our age became unimportant and we began the un derstanding companionship which is ours today We became so homesick after our three years stay in California that we decided lo rsturn to Kansas City Not from my grandparents home we found a small apartment I was enrolled in a convent but I did not stay there Jong My mother was so lonely and I was so unhappy lhat I left and went to Miss Bige ows School where I could go home each afternoon When I was 15 I suffered one ot he greatest humiliations of my life got the measles To think that I could have thing so childish To prevent the other girls at school from learning rny humiliat ing secret I pledged the family to secrecy When the siege was over the doctor advised mother to send me to camp for the Summer So I went lo a Northern Michigan camp That camp remains one ot my worsl nightmares Several days afler mother left one of the other girls and myself displayed symptoms ot scarlet fever We were isolated and put in a small tent house and left alone There we lay two sick lonely kids crying lor our mothers The manager of the camp tele graphed mother The wire reached her just as she was getting off the train She took the next train back The camp was quarantined but no quarantine could keep mother away She found the two ot us burning with fever For three weeks she nursed us bolh As soon as we were able to move I was taken back to Kansas City On the trip home mother met Marino Bello whoma year later she married We called on a friend ot ours who had sent boxes of delicacies during my illness at camp Marino was in the office and was introduced to us He came to Kansas City to visit us the following weekend and thus began mothers romance The following Fall it was again decided that I should go away to school SoI went to Ferry Hall in Lake Forest Mothertook an apart ment at theHighland Park Inn near Chicago so I could puss the week ends with her Duringall my schoolgirl years I one romance in my life He was a friend of Ihe family and my hero Whenever I heard n thrilling romantic story Id think ot Rod Adams The fact that he was a grown man over 30 didnt make the slighlcsl difference When I was 14 I secretly promised myself that some clay Rod Adams would be the man Id marry Thcn I mel Charles Mc Grew and the image of Rod faded into rny childhood dreams Tomorrow Miss llurluw ells of her romance with Gluirlus Grew

the Constitution in lead of a sound grounding in cco rnunists because We imagine they are enemies ot our form of gov That in fact is the least of their enmities They dn not much care what form of government we have or whether we have any The Soviet governmental system which they incidentally advocate is for that mailer not a bad form ot gov ernment A free country with capi talistic economics might very well be run under it But their main opposition is not to government at all It is to property and profits it they could abolish these they would cheerfully leave us our President and Congress O ft O VERY Congressman knows the sounding phrases which once reflected R lauJable patriotism Emotionally Ihese ConfircsFmen are doubtless still as patriotic as those invented those phrases in the days when they represented reality They can make all the eighteenth century arguments to prove that a representative republic is better than a monarchy So indeed it is But the discussion is now as aca demic as a review of Aristotles comparison of the polities of Ath ens and Sparta The real question nowadays so far as it is govern mental at all is between fascist or communist dictatorship or the democracies of which fourfifths of the few surviving examples are rtill reigned over by kings TJT these Congressmen who know so much about the prob lems which were real when their grandfathers were born are abysmally ignorant of the science on which all modern problems are built They still cling to the mer cantilist school of economics which was demolished for all lime by Adam Smith whose
