START BUILDING ON THE MARQVETTE PARK FIELDHOUSE AT ONCE Theoretically speaking the corner stone of the Marqucttc park is in sipht. With the announcement that the minute details of the plans for the structure arc hcinp completed and that for the huildiup will he adver- tised within the next few the proposed fieldhouse is at last becom- ing a reality. Thii means that if the park com- missioners follow the normal course of procedure, the work will he started in about five weeks. Although nil point the to such execution, South- town civic organizations that have hern interested in the improve- ment for many years are cautioned "not to count their chickens before they are With the cry beinp made for retrenchment of expenses by the South Park hoard, there is the possibility that the construction of the ficldhouse, as a last minute move of expense reduction, might be held up. It must be pointed out, however, that the Marquctte community house was to be paid for from the light and road repair fund. After civic organizations had petitioned time after time for the fieldhouse, the commissioners finally consented to allocate the road repair fund to the building fund. In other words, the money has already been set aside for the proposed structure, and should be used for this improvement. Delay at mis time will mean that the people in the Marquctte park dis- trict will lack a community house for an indefinite time. Work on the proposed building should begin in September and should be continued till the inclement winter weather sets in. Once started, the fieldhouse will be ready for use early next summer. It was through pressure brought to bear on the South Park commissioners by interested civic organizations that made them decide to substitute the road repair fund for building purposes. It is up to the same civic bodies to continue in their efforts to get the Marquette fieldhouse started, and at once. Southtown, lying at the southern edge of the great World's Fair grounds, offers perhaps the most ideal convention center of any section of Chicago. And this statement is by no means an overly- patriotic assertion for the district. This territory possesses practically everything from excellent entertainment to true residential life for visitors. Where in Chicago is there a great community which can equal these following comforts and luxuries? Southtown is dotted with parks, where is offered swimming, ideal beach party sites, boating, baseball, golfing, football, picnic grounds playgrounds, ice skating, wading pools, fly-casting, and beautiful walks and paved roadways. Southtown has excellent public library facilities in its many neighborhoods. Southtown has its University of Chicago. Southtown has its Sinai and Ridge forums. Southtown has the greatest industrial museum in the world. Southtown has its outdoor stadium in Stagg field and its indoor stadium in the Washington park armory. Southtown has ideal convention halls in the University of Chi- cago, Sinai and the industrial museum, as well as many smaller auitable buildings. Southtown has its Trianon ballroom, the beautiful in the world. Southtown has its many athletic fields. Southtown has a host of fine hotels throughout its territory. Southtown has its array of churches. Southtown has its White City amusement park. Eotrthtown has its splendid bathing beaches and indoor pools. Southtown has its many beautiful theaters. Southtown has its ideal transportation facilities to all points of Chicago, and out of it. And Southtown has lots of room for evcrvbody in every wav at a reasonable and sensible The elite North fide and the modernistic Loop with their hub- bub and jams cost far too much. And the West side has little to offer in comparison to the rest of Chicago. Southtown is the most ideal convention center! Community Life 'By BILL CARTAN-------- SOUTHT01TN.

The status muuciu iiimiuifeU has become the most vital of bu- rn a n problems, and rightly so. It may be construed as a favorable sign that men and women the world over are awakening to its Importance. WITH the cxccp- tion of a hand- ful of optimists, however, the opinions expressed re- garding modern marriage tend to doubt the stability of the institution in its up-to-date guise. Without a reversal back to its former state, the public is generally asked to believe, the marriage system Is doomed to failure. Thinking people are skeptical con- cerning those far-flung cries about the present Insecurity of the mar- riage system. They recognize the generally accepted theory that the Institution of marriage will not be overthrown easily. They are con- fident that while changes In its form undoubtedly will be made, the sys- tem is sound at Its core. To those pessimists who remain marriage, we to present this point of view. COR the first time since the origin of marriage as a human instilla- tion, true marriage his been made possible, properly speaking, by the emancipation of women brought about during the lost several decades. It has made possible a new personal association between men and women. And that association Is founded not on economic pressure, fictitious sen- timentalities and superstitions, or on barbaric claims, as in previous cen- turies, but rather upon intelligence. Marriage is no longer imperative for women from an economic point of view. Public sentiment has ceased to brand a woman who chooses to remain unmarried as an "old maid." Those two factors nlonc have n defi- nite trend toward establishing more intelligent marriages.

After the play, Solon asked Thespls If he was not ashamed to tell so many lies before such a num- ber of twinlf. The actor said that it was no harm to say or do so In a play. Solon thereupon vehmently struck the ground with his staff and said: "Ah, if we honor and commend such play as this, we shall find it some day In our business."

THIS CIVILIZATION By MILTON SHUFRO SPEAKING STYLE -By IRENE VAIL- N OT very long ago a costume play was given in Paris and the first night audience thought it was amusing to wear costumes of that period to the premiere. The affair was a great success and has set me to wondering why we could not follow this idea as we follow so many other Paris leads. A few nights ago, as an example, a theater was opened at Westport, Conn., and it would have been just the time and the place to have tried out the experiment. To begin with, the theater itself was a reconstructed AUNT MET ROBERT QUILLEN "When I see folks livln' on pea- nut-butter sandwiches, I don't wonder at their the old practice o' adtin" the blmin'." O 13J1. Publisher's Syndicate barn with ancient beams and rafters, a barn which had stood in the midst of gnarled apple trees for a hundred or so years it is said. The play itself dealt with the panicky days of 1837 and the characters were of course cos- tumed in the wide skirts of that period, so like our own when talks ot bank failures and business depression was in the air, and so curiously like our own in dress. F course we have not taken to swooning, or going about In sub- ways in such clothes, but any evening party will reveal many of them, not very unlike those worn so charmingly by the women of that repertory group. Many a worn in the audience could trace its ancestry back to those worn on the opposite side of the foot- lights. Such being the case. It seems a pity that the idea was not actually carried out. One would of course have had to make an exception of the men who do not seem to have any fond reminiscences concerning biscuit col- ored trousers, colorful tall coats and so on. Every bit of advance information one is able to get by third degree methods or otherwise, concerning fall fashions, is that they date back to Second Empire days. In case this sends you rushing to reference books for the date, it may be mentioned that 1852 answers your question. One presumes that we will be permitted to be 1932 by day even though WR drop a century when dressing for din- ner. CASHION frequently indulges in backward gestures and most wo- men find it great fun to get them- selves up accordingly. It is going to be a bit difficult to get accustomed to balancing hats on one, car after cramming them down over both, as has been our habit for so many sea- sons. One must learn the trick, how- ever. Milliners are going into reverse, if one can so speak of a change of movement which brings the hat for- ward instead of back. There are ever so many heirlooms being shaken from their tissue and lavender to be brought back to again. There are little lace coats, for instance, fine black or white thread lace affairs worn turned back from the neckline instead of fastened un- der the chin by a cameo or other brooch. Long earrings arc an old story these nights and with necklets growing longer and longer one need not be surprised to see those ropes of gold revived, or lockets replacing pendants. C United Features SAYS SOUTHTOWN! TEACHING THEM RESPECT EDITOR: I want to add my com- mendation to the recent order issued by Commissioner Alcock in curbing this common and cheap "street flirt- ing." Perhaps after some of these young hoodlums have spent a night or two In Jail for this offense, they will cultivate a little more respect for women. At least, I hope so. MISS J. L. BILL HAS A PLAN EDITOR: I don't agree with the writer in ycur last "Says Southtown" column who contends that a motion picture house featuring merely old- time dramas could make a success of it financially. The novelty of the idea would draw larce audiences at first, but after all. people want the latest thing in the movies and not the oldest. However, I do think there is a happy medium for the plan. I think a smart show house manager would consider the idea of running one old- time favorite movie each week as an added attraction one night a weak.

A certain type of tuberculosis found in cattle is probably the most important infectious disease com- municated to human beings. It is usually transmitted through milk from tubcrculos cows and, fortunate- ly, is controllable through pasteuriza- tion of milk. Hydrophobia, or rabies, is one of the diseases most readily spread from ani- mals to human beings and is a more formidable destroyer of life than Is generally believed.

YOUR CIEB By ANN SHUMAKER- IF children could understand and express what they feel they might give their parents a few illuminat- ing pointers on child training. For Instance, there are times when every child realizes that his parents can't be depended upon. This usually happens when the little fellow needs a friend most. We will suppose that company Is present and little Willie turns to a guest nnd comments on the silver- ware, much to mother's embarrass- maybe he asks papa how. come he Isn't pouring his coffee In his saucer. From the annoyed or angry looks and the lecture and spanking that follow one would sup- pose that he had done something really drowning a kitten or talking back to the minister. T JSUALLY, however, the child Is un- u aware of an offense. He noticed something new in his environment and he thought about it. Then he just remarked about prompt- ly forgot about It. And for no reason at all. to his way of thinking, he gets blamed. The adult point of view In such and similar matters Is totally differ- ent and one-sided. We fail to grasp the child's point of (view or to appre- ciate his naivete. When a child doesn't act up to company manners It simply shows that he hasn't been trained to them. Children are essentially truthful. They are eager to learn and they do not delude themselves. It takes time to understand the subtleties of the white lie and to ap- preciate its usefulness and desirabil- ity. But this development comes later with children, when their lives de- mand such reactions, and when they have become sufficiently acclimated to the world to go in for such higher learning as subterfuge and polite "buck passing" to a weaker brother or sister. pOOD breeding is not accidental. It simply means that one is ac- customed to a certain standard of behavior. If Willie Is accustomed to seeing his papa eat peas with his knife or drink from his saucer, of cciirsc lie en sudden change when company Is present, and father, awkwardly, be- cause out of practice, wangles the peas with his fork or sips coffee from a cup. If we have two for every day and one for don't blame the children for being confused. The same goes for the parents; as. no doubt, their own style will be sufficiently cramped from concentrating on their manners to make them appear affected and ill at ease. And, of course, when Willie makes some crack, as he Is bound to under the circumstances, it will be the last social straw, as far as mama and papa are concerned. DAP.ENTS must try to be consist- r ent in their behavior. And they must do, themselves, as they want their offspring to do. If father is in the habit of eating peas with his knife, and he can man- age it deftly enough without operat- ing on his tongue or tonsils, let him be himself. If mother knows It Is bad form, she should try to remember that in their circle it Is considered to be quite the thing and that her husband has a reputation for never having lost a pea. And if little Willie, following in father's footsteps, ac- quires the knack, don't nag and don't embarrass him. When he grows up and makes the discovery for himself that the habit has its social draw- backs he will give it up of his own accord. There is nothing truer under the sun than that we are wont to be doubly critical of our own in the presence of strargers. Generally, we expect, too mucn from our mates and our children, ''.id in doing so we fall short ourselves. What civilization and parents need, even more than manners, is n sense of humor.

We are under the impression that the law states that 'a business house has a "reasonable length of time" in which to deposit checks on open ac- counts. To deposit dally would require us to make a lot ol small deposits and it is our custom to do all of our bank- ing business on Saturday. All credit tickets for checks are marked "Paid by Check." Could this be construed to imply that the credit is not consummated until the check is paid and cancelled? court will probably hold that you did not present the checks within a reasonable length of time and that you can not therefore charge it back against the customer.
