Sympathies to Pasadena
PASADENA escaped the devastation of the March earth
quake" wh i c h Los Anralea suffered ? hnf Tttlar 1 sm An.
Seles claims to have escaped by 13 degrees the high tem
perature which visited Pasadena last week. The official re
ports were 106 at Pasadena and 93 in Los Angeles. Either
one is "most unusual" for these cIHpa wWa rlfmafa i

put that down first on the list of "things to do today. The
juniors ot busy pronto. First they tested the recording in
strument in their own home town, hoping to- prove it was
too ebullient under the sun's rays. They found it in a man's
back yard ; but its test was accurate to a split hair.
v hen went to Los Angeles convinced that the L. A.
chamber of commerce has. held a wet towel nn HniK
that town's instrument. To find it they had to mount to the
top of one of the big down town buildings; and that gave
them the cue to the answer. For up where the-breezes blow
they found it cooler than down at street level. They found
an alibi; but alas for .the juniors, there ;ia no explanatory
footnote which accompanies the weather reports; and 106
for Pasadena will have to stand, like Salem's minus five,
because the thermometer is out on the windswept airport
instead of atop a high building and close to the warm flue,
as in Portland. -Salem can extend sympathies to Pasadena.
The Spirit of the Act
JUST now employers are scheming and planning as to how
they may rearrange their hours of work to conform to
code requirements. Some are enthusiastic; others lukewarm;
others frankly skeptical. May we call attention to the spirit
of the act, which is primarily to put people back to work.
It seems to us that the employer should make diligent
effort to see what he can do to give new jobs, rather than
to see just how little he can do to get a blue sticker and get
by under the code.
.- A degree of faith will be needed. Employers have been
forced to chisel here and chisel there on payrolls for years.
It is hard now for them to see hnw thev ran moof aAAaA

I for the employer to exercise some degree of faith and make
a venture either in putting more people on the payroll or in
increasing compensation of those already on. It is going to
taice some such willingness to venture to get millions of
men nacx on payrolls.
In planning codes for stores and offices And fartnries
employers should keeD in mind the sDirit of the art tr
spread work to more people, not just do the same amount of
wjorjc wnn tne same force in less time.
1 Close as operating budgets have been held, now is a
time to "take a chance". The resulting employment if gen
eral enough may give just the impetus needed to make re
covery steady and substantial.
Pension Reviews
TOCAL boards are to be created over the country, some
i OA 4 It.,,- ' . , ,
- - vv y ac view pension cases ana determine de
gree of disability and make recommendations as to the pen
sion allowance which should be made. We are not surprised.
It was inconceivable that the government could be as ruth
less as many veterans report.
Now cases may be presented to the boards, whose per
sonnel will be announced within a few days, and those who
feel they have proper claims may get a hearing. A special
board of 15 will be the final board of review.
I Spanish war veterans also get better consideration in
a new presidential order, which authorizes payment of $50
a month to veterans with 50 per cent disability, if they can
show need.
The injustices have been administrative Tint lAorfalarlva

Leni turned ker head and saw him.
A faintly discreet smile formed en
her lip.
The smile said, Tm glad

same youth who had procured him
the seat ia th -box.
"Do yoa think yoa could do me
another faror this eTeninr," he
asked th . youth with his compel
ling touch of eameraderi.
The young man thought he could.
Cayanaugh put a bank not ia th
lad's hand and went back to -the
box. Unostentatiously he found his
seat. A few minutes later the usher
was bending confidentially behind
Douglas Gates and whispering in
his ear.
"A long distance ealh has just
come in for you, sir," h lied de
ferentially. The operator has
switched it into the booth in the
men's lounge. The party said it was
rery Important that we get you on
the phone, sir.
The usher disappeared and there
after kept out of sight. As Gates
mored np the aisle, Cayanaugh
spoke -to Lent in a rapid hushed
"Brae yourself for a shock, be
said. Els band reached forward and
dosed above her elbow. Tour trou
ble with Kroger is all orer. There
was some sort of a hold-up ia th
front part of th theater a little
while ago. Krnger got shot acci

it myself."
Leni drew her breath la slowly

completely filled.

"Braesjearself for a shodc." he said. "Tour trouble with Krager

"Ifs terribler sh attend pain

It was almost too nweh to ex

could keep a cool head, yet LaL
by shear fore of win, compelled
her brain to rational behavior.

Somebody -had been there ahead of
us and we merely entered through
th French doors that wer already
opened. Th cops will be so excited
over what happened that Mulrooney
probably will forget all about the
penthouse business."
Cayanaugh could feel her begin
ning to tremble. "How much more
of this can I stand?" she asked
Tm sorry," he said steadily to
her. "But you've sot to go through
with it. The worst part Is over. I
know you won't fall down now. Get
yourself together. Show me how
much heart you've got."
It was a eommand a challenge
and it entered into Leni's blood like
strong medicine.
"Mr. Gates wUl be back la a
minute," she said, forcing her voic
to calmness.
"That's what I'm thinking
about," said Cayanaugh. "W want
to get rid of him IH tak you

"But how can we got rid of

Cavanaugh's eyes wer alert and

Cavanaugh was not a maa to
show- surprise, or disappointment in
an emergency. He was a gentleman
among gamblers, and a gambler
among- gentlemen. And la his
individual way he had more poise
than the professional practitioners
of either class. If he was la th
least startled by the annoying pres
ence of Detective Mulrooney no
one would have suspected it. A
smile lit bis face he seemed
actually glad to meet the maa who
was quit obviously barring' his
path. But it waa all oa th sur

Mulrooney bowed a little stiffly
to Lent.
