Well folks I see quite a number
of our people been winning the old

you keep at any thing long
enough, you will succeed. That
Is if your money don’t run out.
Fans here is a story which was
told to me about a couple of reg
ular fellows—Mr. Jess Hardin and
Jtfr. Spencer Gray decided t» take

You know Mr. Hardin is the well
known eo-owner of that famous
night spot known from coast to
coast as the H&M buffet. Mr.
Grey you know is the Beau Bruni
mel of this man’s town. Well
liked by all for his sportsmanship
among his friends. Well Mr.
Grey and Mr. Hardin jumped in
Grey’s beautiful Packard and off
bo the races they went Oh! said
Jess after they got therei, the rac
es have started. Grey said let’s
you and I take a peek over bhe
fence. OK by me says Jess.
They was on the Nonbhside of the
track, so up the hill Grey went,
followed by Jess, slowly. No soon
er than they rested their chin on
the rail up pops one of Mr, Sher
iff Dorrance’s deputies and says
bo move on, you can’t cop no neck
here. In the meantime Mr. Grey
is parked wrong on the road. The
copper also notced that little
email incident. Whose car is that
he bellows out loud. That’s my
car said Grey. WTiy the cappci
almost fainted when he regained
his senses the copper said you
mean to tell me that’s your car
and you peeking over the fence.
The nowu is again going around
that the Roosevelt Administration
is inaugurating a new policy of
“appeasing” industry and business.
There is plenty of reason why
the Administration might do that
but business in general seems to
bo going on the theory that seeing
is believing. According to practi
cally all of the economists, and
e«pec'ally those connected in one
way or another with the govern
ment, business should be on the
upgrade now. Inventories are low.
Government defier: spending is at
a high level. Public purchasing
power is in fair shape. There
seems to be plenty of room for
expansion, with consequent new
security issues, in important in

issues simply haven’t been offer
ed. Business is on a slow down
grade, instead of an upgrade. Sen
timent among a large number of
business leaders tends toward the
pessimistic side.
What, then, is the cause of this
apparent anomaly? For many
months government and other ex
perts blamed it on European trou
bles. And those troubles have un
doubtedly been an important de
pressive factor. Rut by now, the
experts «ay, wars and war scares
have been discounted to the limit.
It is no longer possible to blame
the shadow of Mars for our do
mestic depression. As a result, the
experts continue, there is but one
thing to which it can be attri
buted—and that is the feeling of
industry at largte that inimical
governmental policies continue to
so darken the future that all busi
ness can do is stand still, spend
only the money that is needed to
keep in operation, and wait and
seo what happens.
Some t'me ago this column ob
served that, that “psychological
factor” is, at the moment ms im
portant and perhaps more impor
tant than the more concrete fac
tors on which business forecasts
are usually based. All the econo
mic indicators may be good, hut
they won’t produce much result if
the people who are in charge of
our commercial affairs are wor
ried and dispirited and fearful of
what government may do. Today,
some of the influential Adminis
tration officials and advisors are
apparently tending toward that
point of view.
There have been a number of
actions lately which, while they
haven’t been headlined to any ex
tent, may indicate the way the
wind blows. Recently Secretary of
War Johnson issued a statement
praising the electric utilities in
the most flattering terms for
their cooperation with the War
Department in its national pre
paredness program. And the utili
ty industry has been the principal
target of inimical Administration
act'on for six years.
More recently still, Secretary of
Commerce Hopkins, in his capa
city of Chairman of the American
Trade Association Executives, had
the job of choosing the industry
which made the greatest progress
'n public spirited trade associa
tion work last year. The industry
chosen was Portland Cement.-That
is the industry which has been
threatened with prosecution by
tho Justice Department for alleged
price fixing, a threat which, ac
cording to men high in other in
dustries, was a significant factor
in producing industrial paralysis.
This doesn’t mean that tho Ad
ministrator is going out to cooper

ate with and reassure business.
There is still plenty of dissension
among White House intimates. On
one side is the “radical” wing, led
by the famed team of Corcoran
and Cohen, and they are still a
big influence with the President.
On the other side is the "conser
vative” wing, led at the moment
by Secretaries Morgenthau and
Hopkins, wh:ch is al*o influential.
Over a period of time, one wing
is uppermost for while, then the
other. Right now the “conserva
tives” seem to be swinging the
most weight. But whether their
conciliatory policies will be given
permanence is still a matter of

Cari o/nith is trying to make the
acquaintence of a comely belle
whom he by chance began to talk
with as the train on which he was
riding pulled out of the railroad
station at Roanoke Va. He has in
. formed her that he is a writer.
This gained her interest.
“Oh, do you write?” she asked.
“Well I have a small booklet of
poetry published. It isn’t very
much; but some day, I might do
something worth while,—if I ever
get the inspiration from the right

by an appealing smile. She blushed
lightly with understanding. Then
you may sit down.
“Perhaps I shall if you are sure
an old bard won’t be too boresome.”
She smiled. He sat down and
crossed his hands and leaned back
to begin his narrative. She com
forted herself to listen.
“Well, you see, I was once in
love and got disappointed.”
Her expression suddenly showed
Bigns of profound interest.
“I had the inspiration THEN to
write,” he continued, “and to make
a real success out of it; but since
loosing her, well ... I haven't had
much incentive to attempt anything
worth while.”
He paused.
She sat in a study, then re
“Your affair must have been in
teresting. Did she get married ? He
shook his head slowly and starred
blankly at the seat before them.
“Then what happened to cause
you to lose her?”
“Well. . . She didn’t get married,
—at first she didn’t: but you see
her mother thought I wasn’t good
enough for her. She wanted her to
marry a medical student in our
town, and every time they were
together I became the subject of
a heated discussion. That’s when
love aad hate in the frames of
mother and daughter clashed.
Those battles lasted between them
until I finished college. Then I left
home and went to work on the lake
steamers in Chicago, hoping to
make enough money to go in cmsi
ness the next year and marry her.
Well . . . when I did come home,
the job I had in mind was fiHed,
and we couldn’t get married. Her
mother became so tyrranical that
Marie ran off and married an or
chestra leader. Since then, I haven’t
cared much for any other woman,
and I’m trying to forget her.” Willa
shifted in her seat and tried to hide
her compassion.
“What’s the matter?” asked
Carl, “You look sad.”
“Oh, I don’t know,” she sighed.
“I was just thinking You know,
I went to college once, and fell in
love with the foot-ball captain. I
shouldn’t tell you this!” she racily
concluded shut-mouthly.
“Oh no, please go on. Pleasel"
She heaved another sigh and con
tinued: “Well, I’ve been married.
I have one child.” Again her brain
twirled. A panorama of her past
life flared before her,—all of which
she dared not tell. Some of her life
. . . only one man must know . . .
and he was her husband. She grip
ped her nerves and swallowed then
added: “When Junior was a year
old, I had a terrible tragedy to
change my whole life.
Again she paused to gather a re
covering breath. Her eyes fell to
the floor. Her face muscles tight
ened as she hung her head. Her
body stiffened as the recurrance of
the tragedy raced through her
“I know you suffered untold mi
sery and grief.” he added.
“I did . . . over my baby .
but not my husband.”
“Why, didn’t you love your hus
band?" he startled.
She sat motionless and in sil
ence. Carl realized it best not to
question her further.
“I did once . . . but after Jun

“Everything went along fine un

so happy. Then came the baby.”
Again she paused to remove an
other lump in her throat. “One
night two years ago, John came in
drunk, and when he saw Junior
