<« r Daredevil Likes to Tempt Death 1 \ 2 By Dr. Donald A. Laird Thousands, of circus-goers the world over have gasped in sus- pense while Alfredo Codona per- formed on the rings and trapeze far above the ground. The only man in the world to perforin the triple som- ersault in midair regularly, he was recognized as the ace in his field. Twice each day he flirted with death. Codona knew full well the risks be was taking. During the act* of his second wife, the famed Lillian Leitzel, Codona hovered anxiously near her safety net, disguised in the uniform of a circus roustabout, ever alert to the slightest sign that his flying mate would slip or that some of the rigging would give way. Yet Codona would not leave his dare- devil profession. Mental analysts knew that, though the wealthy aerialist could afford to leave off his risk-taking, only a crippling injury would stop him. When a trapeze ring broke in Copen- hagen and pitched his wife to her death over the heads of the horrified s...

/founding Hp itie master minds of the Counterfeit Stamp Racket WHILE smashing through a se- cret passageway in an incon- spicuous Philadelphia office building a short while ago. Treasury Secret Service men made a sensational discovery—a discovery that was to link Cleveland, Akron, Philadel- phia and New York with a nation-wide stamp counterfeiting ring, and which led to its expose. Cunningly concealed underneath fake drawers and desks was complete equipment for manufacturing and counterfeiting stamps, including en- graving plates, perforating machines, cameras and gumming apparatus. Everything was of ultra-modern de- sign and most efficient in operation. Three enormous boxes contained thou- sands of forged stamps of the current two-cent United States variety, which, if genuine, would be worth approxi- mately $14,000. And as if this were not enough, two other boxes were well filled with bogus documentary stamps. By piecing together various bits of •vidence, the federal agents proved ...

1 w the cost or The solid line shows the propress or living; costs since 1913, a composite of some 700 items. The doited line is in the zone of future uncertainty, but the trend in the last year has be- come more perpen- dicular in its climb. PRICES are going up. Retail prices rose from 15 to 40 per cent in the last three years, and in the last year, 9.2 per cent. During the next few years you must expect to pay considerably more for everything you buy. What are you going to do about it? You can't stop prices from mounting, of course, but you can do something to counteract the rise. With the expendi- ture of a little thought and effort, you can spend your money wisely, so as to eliminate waste and extravagance and get full value for every dollar that you "lay on the line." Without sacrifice of comfort and the "good things of life," you can save money on such things as food, clothing, shelter, furniture, heat, automobile, your federal income tax.

WANTED: COMPANION - By ELEANOR HOUSTON Illustrated, by Henrietta MeCalg Starrett Mrs. Southwick Advertised for a Secretary, but She Got a Daughter-in-Law THE houses were set too far back in shaded grounds for Emily to see them with any degree of clearness. A broad, white column, a high stone chimney, a varicolored lawn umbrella, ail glimpsed through the toning Autumn foliage, created an impression of genteel leisure. Impregnable security. The staccato sound of her dainty heels clicking oi. the cement highway stopped as she paused at the Ugh gateposts that aerved as an entrance to a long, wind- ing driveway. Pushing aside a riotous mass of English ivy, she found the metal numerals that told her she had reached her destination, 72 Morningslde. Emily silently had been repeating the address tvery step of the way; in fact, with every breath she had drawn since she had read the short advertisement in the morning paper: Wanted, woman as companion to elderly invalid.

"Mr. Southwick will see you In the morning room, Miss," he told her as he led the way through the wide, soft-car- peted hall, and on through other numer- ous passages of the big house. Finally, stopping at the door of a sun- drenched room, one entire side of which was composed of French doors opening out onto a grassy terrace, he addressed a light-haired, bronzed young man who was seated at a huge, flat-topped desk. "Miss Allen, In answer to the advertise- ment, Mr. Southwick," he said, and closed the door softly behind him, leaving them alone. A low whistle brought Emily's eyes up from the letter of reference that she was taking from her handbag; then a voice, expressing utter astonishment, queried: "Am I still Dam Southwick, or did I go to sl...

SINCLAIR LEWIS views MODERN WOMAN "THE AMERICAN WOMEN, in par- ticular, have been too prone to interfere with things. They have consistently rushed into all sorts of reform movements and made every one very uncomfortable. And they've always gotten a lot of praise and attention for it. "Prohibition was a neat little job put over by the ladies. Look what it cost the country and the havoc it created be- fore the law was annulled. We're still suffering from the effects of it. "Then take the struggle for equal rights with men. You would imagine that the mere fact that nature ordained women to have babies would have made . them consider that some of the rights might have pitfalls. "But no, women wanted to enjoy moral freedom with men, to take one example. And out they rushed to get it. I knew women who used to boast that they had a dozen lovers. But what's their story today? They're miserable and lonely and more frustrated than in the old days when they had no rights but plenty of privile...
